More Greeting Farm coming soon!

Whoohoo, little bird tells me there will be more Greeting Farm stamps in stock soon. One of them will be this 'never ever' set.

  • Images: the girl and the little fairy in the corner, plus the sentiments are from the 'Never Ever' Greeting Farm stamp set (the other main stamp in the set is a peter pan type character and he is fab). Stamped main image twice and have decoupaged her.
  • Colouring: Stamped with Memento Tux black ink and coloured with Copics plus some sakura clear glaze and stardust pens on her glasses, book, wings etc
  • Papers: Buzzcraft A4 design papers
  • Others: EK success edger punch, swirl punch and retro flower punchs for the flowers, MS twig punch, Kanban pearls (think out of stock at moment) for centre of flowers, thread and bells I found in my stash (wish you could hear the card as it jingles!)

I'm sure Bryony will post on here when they are in stock, so keep your eyes peeled as I know these cuties always sell out fast.

Made for you

Another card using Greeting Farm stamps - I just love them and can't wait for some more to be in stock! Here's one of the current in stock sets, 'Chef Ian' and some of the pretty new papers from Buzzcraft.

Supplies (highlighted products are from the shop):

  • Images: All images including the sentiment are from 'Chef Ian' Greeting farm stamp set. The set has loads of little stamps which come seperate from the main Ian stamp so the possibilities are endless. His little chef hat is seperate too. I've stamped the cupcake lots of times and made my own cupcake tower and added a flower to one.
  • Colouring: Copics but also paperpierced his hat and top with the dp and used lots of different stickles on the cakes.
  • DP: A4 sized papers by Buzzcraft which I've not heard of before but there are some really sweet designs perfect for spring and have matching cardstock with embossed dots already on it (might be able to see if you click on photo for close up)
  • Others: MS and Fiskars border punches, SU word window punch. I used the doily lace edging as it reminded me of cake paper doilies which goes with the cupcakes - funny how my brain works huh?!

Close up to show dimesion to the card as I've raised his hat and tray of cakes with 3d foam (I love using microdots when sticking fiddly little bits, like the stack of cakes together and the paper piercing) :

and an even closer one to show you the cupcakes. The 'chocolate sprinkles' are actually the punch waste from the doily punching I did :D (the pink cake has the distress stickles on it. It's still wet in photo but once dry it doesn't have the glittery sparkle like the regular stickles which I love as it just looks like a crunchy topping. I've used 'antique linen' on the brown cupcake to the side of the card and I think that looks like crunchy sugar coating!)
