TGF Preview Day #3 and new Farm Fresh Friday: A Cheer for Cheers Anya!!!

Hello Friends!!! Are you ready for the final TGF preview Day #3?!!

Let's give a cheer for Cheers Anya!!!

And here she is... 

Today preview is my favorite of the bunch!!!  Cheers Anya is just so perfect for the holidays coming up and perfect for so many occasions!!!  I had so much fun making my card and used one of my favorite color combos of teal and purple.  I colored up cute Anya with my copics and added lots of Wink of Stella in clear glitter to give her lots of shimmer as well as some glossy accents to her wine glasses.  I know I will be creating many of my holiday cards with this cutie and I can't wait! :)

Cheers Anya will be released at The Greeting Farm store on 11/1/2014.   


We  also have a fun new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge for Preview Day #3 today!   This week's theme is Thank You!  With Thanksgiving and the holidays right around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to give thanks and get some Thank You cards done! I know I'm always in need of some of these!

The Greeting Farm November Preview Day #1: Make Today Awesome!


Hello Friends! Today is a very exciting day because it starts the fantastic previews for The Greeting Farm's November 2014 Release!!!  And if you didn't think they were going to get any cuter, you're in for another big surprise and total Cuteness overload!!! :)   Today, our first showcase is of an adorable set called Together Anywhere!

Here's my card for you today... 


This set has a very fashionable Anya and Ian both!!!  I wanted to showcase Ian today because he just looks so handsome!   I kept him stylish although I thought it would be fun to add a little bit of a grungy background to compliment him.  I took out a chevron stamp I had in my stash and then embossed it with some black sparking powder.  After that, I had fun playing with some distress inks. I kept my card pretty simple to focus in on this cool guy!  The sentiment comes with this fun stamp set.

Together Anywhere will be released at The Greeting Farm store on 11/1/2014.  Please check out The Greeting Farm Blog as well as each of my fellow DT gals (ChitraLysaJodi and Kristina) to see their fantastic previews.   Each day, they will be giving away the preview stamp of that day so make sure to leave comments today so you can own this super adorable stamp set!

Hope you like my card for this Preview Day #1 and be sure to come by tomorrow for another image that will warm your heart for Preview Day #2! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: Hello


Hello Friend and happy Tuesday to you all!!!  It is time for a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and this week's theme is PurpleOrangeWhite, and Black!

Our wonderful sponsor is Milk Coffee!!!




Here is my card:




So I know the color challenge is perfect for Halloween and I have actually been on a roll with making Halloween cards the last few weeks.  However, for my card today, I felt like doing something different and coloring up this adorable image called Fairy Sunny Day by Tiddly Inks.  After coloring up this cute fairy with my Copic Markers, I added lots of Wink of Stella to her  outfit and the flowers to give some sparkle.  I also added some stickles in "Crystal" to her wings and some polka dots with my white gel pen to her dress.  For my fun background, I took a new Tim Holtz stencil called Gothic and added some texture paste over it.  I really love this pretty design!  

Here are some other supplies used on my card:

Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Spiced Marmalade - Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to find adorable  Tiddly Inks images as well as many other stamps companies and crafting supplies.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Marcy

The Greeting Farm FFF Challenge: Greetings Friend!



Hello Friends! I hope you're all having a great TGIF Day!!!  I'm so happy for the weekend as always even though it's going to be another busy one.  So let me get right to our new FFF Challenge this week.  We have one of my new favorite themes and that is CAS (Clean and Simple)!!!  I find that my cards are becoming more CAS all the time!  Last year, I was always about layering on my cards with lots of trims, flowers, bling etc.  I mean don't get me wrong, I still love to do that at times.  However, I do love the "Clean and Simple" look and especially with all of the darling images from TGF since they're such great focal points.  

   Here is the card I created...


Now the cutie I used for this card comes from the Winter Greetings Stamp set from the last TGF release.   I colored her up with my copics and added lots of Wink of Stella to her outfit.  You can't tell in the pic but she has lots of pretty shimmer.  I had so much fun also creating the background and couldn't wait to play with my Tim Holtz distress inks!  I just can't get enough of these beautiful colors!  I added some dots with my white gel pen for a starry sky and also some sequins keeping it very CAS.  The sentiment "Greeting Friends" also comes from this fun stamp set!  Which type of card do you prefer? CAS or Lots of Layers or both? :)

Please check out The Greeting Farm blog to get the details on this challenge and to see the other fabulous creations from the DT Girls!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Hugs,
Marcy
