Prince Ian Preview Day!

Welcome to the MAY PREVIEW DAYS with The Greeting Farm!
Before I get to showing you some brand new projects today with some FRESH new stamps, we just have a few announcements we'd love to share:


We've had some changes to TGF Challenges and are very grateful to have heard such positive feedback so far as we've turned them over to our Showcase DT. Please make sure you visit the TGF Blog (and check out it's cute new makeover while you're there!) and tune into the Left-hand sidebar for all of our current challenges in ONE place!


Now on to the pretty stuff, alright?!  Well, how about handsome stuff instead?!  Today I am previewing Prince Ian, who would look adorable with Princess Anya from a couple days ago. Isn't he a majestic little Prince!

On this card, I used the Basic Grey Plumeria paper pad for inspiration.  Purple is such a regal color that I thought I'd start there. I colored him with Copics, cut out his "outer garment layer" from silver CS, and added the very hip and cool Two-Tone Grosgrain ribbon.  By slightly curving the "a special guy" sentiment from the TGF My Guy Ian stamp set, I was able to add it to the banner die cut.  :D 
And here he is close up!

We'll be giving away ONE stamp during each day of previews, so be sure to visit the TGF BLOG for that information as well!

Last but not least , please join us for our RELEASE DAY BLOG HOP, prizes, and fun on MAY 1st, when FOUR NEW STAMPS will be available on the Farm!

Oh Snap Blog Hop Challenge!

Hey y'all! Today is There She Goes' fourth and final day of new release peeks! So exciting!
https://mail-attachment.googleusercontent.com/attachment/?ui=2&ik=bf43d06a2a&view=att&th=136dc62e04837f38&attid=0.1&disp=inline&safe=1&zw&saduie=AG9B_P_5yFCAHdHBFTyL5BJXT2AK&sadet=1335512425667&sads=dqnmupWVBTI7s88ubDcZSrsCF1k
 We are finishing up with my favorite set of the release, a set that is sure to appeal to all the cardmaking, scrapbooking, camera wielding stampers out there!!
Oh Snap is a 6x8 set that includes 33 stamps, and will sell for $24.

Did I mention that this is my favorite set in the release?!  Seriously there are soooo many sayings and adorable elements that I just can't wait to play with it some more. Here is my first card using the stamp set.
 I started with this week's TSG sketch (again, I know, work with me here!).  Using the EP This and That Paper Pad, i made the card.  So cute!  

Then I stamped the camera 3 times, colored each one, and cut out the layers of the camera.  By layering up, you get such awesome dimension when you look at the card IRL.
You can kinda see the layers here, but in person it's so dang cute!  I added Diamond Glaze to the flashes and camera lens'.  

And of course I had to use my favorite sentiment in the set: Take a picture...it will last longer.  Hee hee.  Reminds me of NYC and all the construction workers whistling at the women walking by. :D

Bombdiggity Blog Hop Challenge!

Click HERE if you are looking for the TGF Princess Preview Post.

Hey everyone! Welcome to day THREE of this month's There She Goes New Release Blog Hop Challenges.  Approach these SUPER CUTE girls, with their frazzled hair, with caution….they just might EXPLODE!  Bombdiggity is the PERFECT set for showing JUST how excited/happy/proud you are of that special someone in your life….and they're just FUN!  
Bombdiggity  is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 24 stamps and will sell for $18 .

I am loving ALL of the images in this stamp set, but this little girl reminded me of those dress up wigs we had as kids.  We'd get all dressed up and put on plays in the garage.  We got so good we even charged admission and my mom made snacks and lemonade for us!  Well, by now y'all know that I always start with a sketch.  This week's TSG Challenge is, lucky for me, a sketch!

I used the Echo Park A Boy's Life paper pad again, showing the versitility of a pad.  A "boy" themed pad can easily be used for a girl.   

I added a Stickled Star and colored her boots with a mix of black and stardust stickles. Of course her wig needed some bling on the bows and I added a little bling to the sentiment and down the side of the crown border.  Tied up the ribbon (May Arts Striped Twill in Red) with the Bow Easy.  That little tool sure does make my life easier.  And Voila!  And adorable card! :D

First I assembled the supplies:  Bottle Caps with magnets, A Boy's Life Paper Pad, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Memento Ink, Copics and the lush and fabulous May Arts Twine (coming to the Ribbon Carousel this week)!  Then got to work making some magnets.  Punch paper, stamp and color, add Diamond Glaze, gently add the twine.

Ruh-Rho! Blog Hop Challenge

Hey there There She Goes fans, and welcome to this month's Blog Hop Challenges!! We have three new sets being released this month, and I am SURE you are going to LOVE THEM!! Today is day one, so let's get started!!


We know you love them, and we love them too, but this month’s Ruh-Roh set, is slowly becoming one of my FAVORITES! Torico has illustrated the most ADORABLE mini set, and for all you dog lovers out there, yep, there’s a puppy in this one, and he is up to no good!! With several stamps to create a scene, and 5 adorable sentiments, this set is a must have for anyone who has EVER had to say they or sorry…..and I doubt that excludes ANYONE!!!


Ruh-roh is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7.00.

Oh my goodness, I so love this stamp set!  I say two of the sentiments ALL the time! So I used them both.  The first is.....
Ruh-roh...
My Bad! 

I love this set!  I used the Fiddlesticks DP from MME and this fab yellow and grey solid plaid ribbons by May Arts. Then, of course I needed a little bling, so I put some rhinestones on her pocket and bow.  And a square rhinestone on the pup's collar. It's an Anything Goes Challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge this week so be sure to craft up something good and enter!

And here are the Copics....lots of greys.....

We are so excited to bring you FIVE new releases which includes TWO brand new clear stamps in a BRAND NEW character line, and three new "interactive' sets which TGF is releasing for the FIRST time!   We sure do hope you've enjoyed our preview week and with that...it's time to SHOP, HOP, and CHIT CHAT over on our Splitcoaststampers FORUM!

Right now though, I'd love to share with you projects I have using Glimmer Bean! 
Isn't she adorable with her cute Hawaiian bikini and matching eye shadow!  I tell you, I'm in love with this little cutie!  I used last year's Lauderdale paper from Basic Grey and some Rubytone Seam Binding. The button was in my stash and matched perfect. 
And here she is close up.  I love her little flowered bathing suit! CA-UTE!!!

(I will have another card featuring Sitting Cute, but not till tomorrow afternoon.  I've been battling a fever, strep throat and bronchitis for over 10 days now and it's finally won.)

Sitting Cute with The Greeting Farm!

Hey everyone!  It's another fantastic preview day for The Greeting Farm!  We're adding to the already wildly anticipated interactive sets with another adorable set called "Sitting Cute".   Let's get to the eye candy, shall we?!

 I thought she'd look so adorable sitting atop a few pillows.  I just love this new paper line called Dots and Stripes from Echo Park.  It so bright and cheery!  The accessories from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally "Best" Pins and Buttons is one of my other new favorite things, so I doubled up the buttons a top a bow made of my favorite V-striped Twill ribbon.  So much fun, right?!!
I just love seeing the inside of a card finished off, so I stamped the sentiment that comes with the set on an oval die cut and layered on the scalloped die cut to finish it all off.  CA-UTE!!!

Here she is perched on her couch...waiting for Mr. Right maybe? ;) I am so loving this MME Dolled Up paper. And this is my new favorite seam binding color, Posie! So much fun!
 The difference between a good card and a great card for me is the little details.  Using an Opal Viva Pearl Pen, I added buttons to the pillows, blanket behind her, and even a little on the flowers to give a bit of texture.  Peacock Liquid Pearls made her braid tie dimensional too.
 I used a lot of dimension on this card to really make her stand out. Can you tell I really LOVE this set!!
And the finished inside.

So.... you want to WIN "Sitting Cute" don'tcha?

Just leave a comment here and on 
Jess's Blog, and then let them know you did over on The Greeting Farm Blog by 11pm CST tonight!  Winners will be announced at the release party!
We sure do hope y'all have enjoyed the 5 days of previews!  Release night is TOMORROW so get ready for tons of fun!
