Welcome, Welcome!! Today is DAY 1 of Previews for our August Release, which will be available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store on Tuesday, August 15th.

Here is my card featuring the new stamps from today's set.

I had so much fun making this card and plan on do a couple more similar to it. To create this card, I started out by making stencils using the coordinated dies for this set using some heavy chipboard. I them placed them randomly on my card base and using a blending tool and some, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. For the final step, I used the coordinating stamps to go over the coordinating shape of aircraft and stamped using some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Lucky Clover
Twisted Citron
Salty Ocean
Peacock Feathers
Candied Apple

The Greeting Farm- Farm Fresh Challenge- Create a Scene

Hi Farmers!! Today starts a new Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm! This months theme is to,CREATE A SCENE . I mixed three different newer stamp sets for today's challenge and also did a little free hand. This card was a labor of love and took way longer than I'd like to admit, but I love the outcome, but I'll let you all be the judges...
Stamp Sets Used:
Mega-Mini Go Time
Best Day Ever
Up

Colored Using Copic Markers

I started my stamping all of my images besides clouds. After that, I hand drew in my fair tent as well as my roller coaster. Once I knew what spots I would have open, I then stamped my clouds. I know there's alot going on but I feel everything ties in together quite well to create my fun little fair scene.

Our Farm Fresh Challenges start on the first of every month and run for an entire month to give you more time to enter. To top it all off, the prize amount is $50!!! Can you believe it?!! At the end of the month you could possibly win a $50 Gift Certificate to The Greeting Farm Store!!
