The Greeting Farm - June Release & Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and that means the new JUNE Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first set, PLAN IT ANYA, is a full size Anya perfect for your planners, and so many different projects. Our second set, MY UNIVERSE, introduced space characters and elements to create an out-of-this world scene. Next, we introduced some adorable animals in our WILD TIME set. And, of course, we couldn't forget about cute and sassy hippos in the HI HIPPO set. This release has so much variety to fit everyone!



I used the adorable Hi Hippo stamps and coordinating dies to make my card.  I colored the images with copics and then diecut them.  I also added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the eyeglasses and coffeepot.  I cut several decorative panels for the front of my card and then sponged on some distress ink.  I adhered the hippos with foam tape and then added some sequins for some sparkle.

Wish You Were Here

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card that I posted over on The Greeting Farm Blog.


All of these adorable images are from the S'More Fun stamp set.  I created the background by using pattern paper for both the sky and the grass.  I diecut a circle in a stitched rectangle to "frame" my camping scene.  I colored all the images with copics and then diecut them using the S'More Fun Die Cuts.  I used a white gel pen to add polka-dots on the girl's dress, and then I added a diecut sun to my camping scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
