The Greeting Farm March Release Blog Hop!

It’s the 15th, and that means the new MARCH Stamps: Little Heroes, Oh Dragon, and Buddy Ian, are now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. To celebrate, we are having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home all 3 sets!!


For my card today, I decided to use Oh Dragon. The sentiments in this set are so fun and perfect with the dragons. I did some die cutting and then ink blending with Distress Inks for my background. I thought a sunrise (although it looks more like sunset) would be cute for the sentiment I chose.


Once I was satisfied with my background and layout of the scene, I colored my dragons with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. There are matching dies available separately if you don't really like to fussy cut like I do. I used the same colorless blender technique with a rag to create the scaly texture on my dragons after I colored them.

Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog, and then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know you completed the hop. You have until Saturday, MARCH 18th at 12pm CST to leave your comments. We will announce the random winner the following week.

The Greeting Farm March Release Preview - Buddy Ian!



Welcome to our find day of March previews for The Greeting Farm! Tomorrow is THE day all these awesome new stamps will be available! Today we're showcasing Buddy Ian. He's absolutely adorable as usual and you're gonna love coloring and putting him on your cards! The best way I know to make masculine cards is to keep it simple. As soon as I dug through my October Afternoon paper stash and found the perfect boy themed collection, I was all set to start coloring with my Copic markers.


Isn't he just the cutest?! Squee! I love him! He just look so sweet standing there with his hands in his pockets. My youngest LOVES wearing pants with pockets and he walks around just like this. hehe

The Greeting Farm March Release Preview - Oh Dragon!


Hi everyone! Welcome back to Day 2 of our March release previews for The Greeting Farm! Today we're previewing this amazing set called Oh Dragon. This set is full of different dragons, accessories and awesome sentiments.


I had so much fun coloring up the dragons in this set. They are full of spunk! After I colored up my dragon for this card, I added some texture using the Copic colorless blending solution to a rag and dabbed it on my image. This is one of my favorite techniques for creating texture on animals and creatures because it is so simple.


Here is a close up of the coloring and shimmer I seem to have to add to all of my cards lately using the Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. You can also see I popped up my clouds and sun as well as my image panel for a bit more dimension. I love how my card turned out today using this Claw-some new set! ;)

Don't forget, we'll have a New Release Blog Hop on the 15th when 1 lucky winner will win all 3 new sets! Until then, be sure to to check out everyone's creations on The Greeting Farm Blog today using this stamp.

The Greeting Farm Release Preview - Little Heroes!



Yay, welcome to Day 1 of our March Previews for The Greeting Farm! We have a full release for you this month and you guys are going to fall in love with all of these new stamps. Today we are previewing the new stamp set Little Heroes. Seriously...who doesn't love super heroes?! This set is the absolutely cutest. I had so much fun playing with it for my card today.


One of my favorite parts of this stamp set is that there are so many bits and pieces to build your own super hero. My son just had a birthday and he is so into The Flash right now. I couldn't resist altering this little cutie to be The Flash for his birthday card.


There are also some great sentiments included in this stamp set. I love that the sentiments even have that super hero feel to them with their fonts! I couldn't resist adding a little color to this sentiment as well as some glitter.

Don't forget, we'll have a New Release Blog Hop on the 15th when 1 lucky winner will win all 3 new sets! Until then, be sure to to check out everyone's creations on The Greeting Farm Blog today using this stamp.
