Just A Hello Masculine Card

Hello, Today, I have a fun little masculine card to share with you!  This little cutie is from the NEW Furreal Couple Clear Stamp Set.  I just love that these images can be used with the cat accessories or without!  
For my card, I used some patterned paper in my stash.  I cut several pieces in varying sizes and then just layered them all together.  I stamped my image and colored him to match my papers.  Then I used foam tape to add him to the front.  For my sentiment, I stamped out the "just a hello" from the Like Like You Stamp Set and die cut it with a circle punch in my stash.  I tucked that next to my image and added a couple of buttons to the top of the card for some added texture.  
Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E04
Hair: E43, E47, E49
Yellow: Y21, Y26
Blue: B24, B26, B29
White: C0, C1

The Greeting Farm May 2021 Release!

The MAY 2021 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first stamp set, FURREAL COUPLE, features Anya and Ian with their adorable kitty accessories.  Our next set, BIRTHDAY MERFRIENDS, showcases cute animals with mermaid tails having some birthday fun. Our last set, FIRST PICK, is all about fresh fruit characters who have shown up to make life so sweet.

I'm featuring First Pick today.  

To create my card, I kept things pretty simple.  First, I stamped out this little apple cutie.  I colored her up with Copics and fussy cut her out.  Then I die cut a rounded rectangle and stamped my sentiment across the bottom.  I added the little apple girl just above with foam tape, then added it to a yellow scalloped frame.  I found some apple paper in my stash, layered it on my card base and popped my focal piece on top with foam tape.  That's it. Easy peasy!  

Copic Colors:
Skin: E31, E35, E37
Hair: C5, C7, C9
Red: R24, R27, R56, R59

Picket Fence Stamps May 2021 Release

Hello!  It's time for the Picket Fence Studios Release!  This month is packed full of adorable and innovative products you are sure to love!  Be sure to stop by the Shop to check out all the new goodies and design team samples!  

Today I'm featuring some fun Slim Line Cards!  

First up, I have the New Nice Seeing You Stamp Set.  This set is so much fun and perfect for all your modern day needs.  It features two different images and a bunch of coordinating sentiments.  For my card, I started with the Slim Line Die Cutting System Scallop Frames set and die cut a black piece of card stock for my card base.  Then I used the Slim Line Nested Rectangles Dies to cut a piece of black and white patterned paper.  I adhered the two together and set aside while I worked on my stamped image.  After stamping my image out, I colored it up with Copics and fussy cut it out.  Very easy since it's just a rectangle. lol.  Then I layered that on top of some royal blue card stock and trimmed around it to give it a nice thick border.  I cut a long strip of red card stock, flagging each end with my scissors.  I layered that behind my focal image and adhered it all to the center of my slim line card.  Then I stamped out my sentiment, trimmed it into a rectangle, and added it to my card using some foam tape.  A couple of red brads on each side of the image finish the card off.  

For my next card, I used the NEW This Cat is for You Stamp Set and paired it with the NEW Vegas Baby Sequin Mix.  To create my card, I started with the Slim Line Nested Rectangles Dies and cut a piece of orange card stock with the larger die and a piece of grey card stock with one of the smaller dies.  I adhered the two together.  Then I stamped out my image a couple of times.  (I love that these line up perfectly and that you can stamp them out as many times as you like to fit your needs).  I colored it up with Copics and trimmed it into a rectangle to fit inside the grey piece on my card panel.  I measured the cat panel and trimmed it into 3 sections.  Then I spaced it evenly inside the grey panel and adhered it down.  For my sentiment, I used the Hello Word Die (I love this die and use it ALL THE TIME).  After layering the two pieces together I added it to the bottom right of my card with foam tape.  The sentiment beneath is from the Cats Are Family Stamp Set that was released last month. To finish the card off, I added some of the NEW Vegas Baby Sequins in between the cat images.  I think it just adds that extra something!  

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out the new release.  All the new items are AVAILABLE NOW in the shop!

The Greeting Farm May Release Sneak Peek #2

Hello! I'm back today with another sneak peek from the NEW May Release at The Greeting Farm! This sweet set is called Birthday Merfriends!  Isn't it the cutest!    

For my card, I decided to go with an underwater circus theme.  I started with some patterned paper, trimmed it to fit my card front and added some torn card stock across the bottom for the ocean floor.  Then I stamped out my images, colored them up and popped them on my little scene using some foam tape.  I used a die from my stash for the stand under the elephant and added some clear enamel dots for bubbles.  I also sprinkled some star foam stickers and some 3D shells throughout the card to give it a party feel.  Across the top, I added some premade die cut words and paired them with the bunting image from the set.  

I just love how this turned out.  Such a fun and festive card!  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Come back tomorrow for yet another sneak peek from this month's release.  All new stamps will be available on the 15th!

The Greeting Farm Coffee Break

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a sweet little card featuring Miss Anya Coffee Break from The Greeting Farm~ This set is so much fun to create with!  


To create my card, I started with some fun patterned paper and layered it up for my background panel.  I used my sewing machine to stitch around the outside.  Then, I stamped out my image, colored her up with Copics, and fussy cut her out.  I layered her on top of a die cut oval and some gold thread.  Then I adhered the image to the right side of the card.  I stamped my sentiment on a die cut circle and added that just beside her.  A couple of buttons and some enamel hearts finish it off.
