It's Release Day at The Greeting Farm!


Woohoo!  It's release day!  We got four new stamps available today!  That's SSSC no. 22 Krystal, no. 23 Azary, Cutesy Anya (clear stamp), Cutesy Anya die cut, For You Anya (clear stamp) and For You Anya die cut!  Have I told you how much I love the die cuts?!?!?!  (^_^)

Now lets get into my projects:

First card I decided to create a simple winter scene.  If you look closely, I am using two new stamp sets in this card...

SSSC no. 23 Azary simple Birthday card...



For You Anya, I created a little holder to house my chocolate bar.  This will be going to one of the nurses at my FIL's nursing home...need to make a few more (^_^)





As an extra while waiting for my Cutesy Anya (didn't get it on time) I made this box and stuck For You Anya on it since she actually matched the ice cream better anyhow...  I've gotten request to do a tutorial on her, so I think I'll do one on The Greeting Farm's YT channel.  So please be on the lookout for it!  

 
Hope you enjoyed the preview and the release projects!  I always love looking at the other girl's creations!  They are one talented bunch!  Do check them out on The Greeting Farm blog!

The Greeting Farm's SSSC no. 23 Azary Preview


Hello!  I'm back with another preview!  Today we are previewing another Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) no. 23 Azary!  I'm always leering when it comes to my male stamps.  Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to have masculine stamps as I need to make masculine cards.  I just have a hard time with masculine cards...but with a few trials with different layouts I finally come up with a card.  When it comes to male cards I try to keep them as simple as possible!


For those new to The Greeting Farm or haven't heard about our SSSC here's what it's all about:

The Super Secret Stamp Club is a 3-month online subscription where members receive a 3×4 special edition ‘mystery’ TGF stamp each month at an exclusive membership price of $8. SSSC Members get the stamp 1-5 months prior to it being released to the general public at the retail price of $12. The Secret Stamps ship the first week of each month (with the exception of international orders where all 3 stamps ship at the end of the second month) during the period in which you’ve registered for.

Thanks again for stopping by and make sure to check back tomorrow for another set of creations using SSSC no. 22 Krystal and no. 23 Azary AND two clear Anya stamps!

The Greeting Farm's SSSC no. 22 Krystal Preview


Hello Friends!  It's the time of the month where we start previewing the new goodies coming to the store on the 15th!  Today me, Rosie and Joni are previewing Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) no. 22 Krystal!  I love her outfit and wished I had her during winter.  Since it's springtime, I thought even if she's in earmuffs and mittens, lets "spring" her up a bit (^_~)

The Greeting Farm Special Release - Lovable Anya

Hello Friends!  Happy, Happy Easter!!!!  It's a wonderful day and the day our Lord and Savior was resurrected!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."  "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." ~John 3:16-17  
John 3:16-17 is my all time favorite scriptures!  It's basically what Christianity is all about!  Whoever believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life!  Simple as that!

I hope everyone is enjoying what the true meaning of Easter is all about and spending it with all your love ones!

Today The Greeting Farm has a special release.  They released a new clear stamp called Lovable Anya!  She's so stinkin' cute!  Now hurry on over and grab yourself this new Anya!  I've been hearing these new clear Anya stamps are selling out fast!

Now onto my project.  I created this card and decided not to include a sentiment, wanted it to be versatile for all kinds of occasion.  I may be sending this to an old High School friend's mom who just moved into a new Nursing Home.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Greeting Farm's March 2016 New Releases

My apologies for not getting these up on time!  My mother-in-law had a massive stroke back on Feb 19.  We were unaware of the serious of her condition until the 21st because we had to wait to find out if her new pacemaker was able to withstand the MRI.   Needless to say when we found out on the 21st that the damage was irreversible we had stayed by her side until she passed which was on Feb 25 :(  It took two weeks before we could bury her so it was a long drawn out process and not to mention we are now caring for my FIL who has Alzheimer.  So lots of big changes and adjustments happening over here at the SP household.  Needless to say, we had my MIL's funeral this past Monday and I am slowly but surely getting back to a somewhat regular routine.  

So with that, lets move on to my samples for The Greeting Farm's new release:

This first card is from the set "I Love Dad"  (there's also a coordinating die!)and I immediately fell in love with it since I don't find too many masculine stamps AND that golf cart!  My dad was an avid golfer, but after his stroke he hasn't had a chance to play.  Never the less I thought this card would be perfect for him come Father's Day!



This next set is called "I Love Mom"  which also has a coordinating die as well!  I decided to use the stamps as the background to my card! Simple but love how it turned out!  This will be going out to my mom who's birthday is next week!




This last stamp is a red rubber Anya stamp called Mon Amie Anya!  I think she's so adorable and wanted to keep this card as simple as possible!




These stamps are available now at The Greeting Farm store!   Make sure to stop by and grab you one, or two or ALL of these cuties!!!

Stamps:
I Love Dad 
I Love Mom
Mon Amie Anya

Die Cuts:
I Love Dad
I Love Mom
