The Greeting Farm's October BLOG HOP!

Let's go to the hop! Woot!

It’s the 15th, and that means RELEASE DAY for the new October stamp sets! And guess what? We have been previewing the new sets over the past few days and now they are available to purchase at the shop! 

 To celebrate, we are having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will win these sets for their very own! Yay!

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

I chose to use "Honor Students and Magic Class" for my blog hop card. They are so Harry Potter, right? There's also a coordinating die to cut out Ian as well. You just might want to pick that up too!

Our wonderful design team!!!! Happy hopping, everyone!    CAROL (Hey, that's me!)           JESSIE     THE GREETING FARM BLOG

Love it! Preview from The Greeting Farm!

Hi there!

It's preview time again! Today I want to show you a cute tulle card that I made using the new stamp and die set called "LOVE IT". I love how she's winking, omg! I cut out a scalloped windows on the front of my card and layered tulle in the middle of the layers. I added some pink enamel hearts to the center and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set onto the inside of the card so that you could see it through the window. I paper pieced her dress, colored her with Copics and there's my card!
This set will be available on October 15, 2017 at

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the support!

Have a great day!

Sneak Peek from The Greeting Farm! "Honor Students"

Welcome to my blog, Greeting Farm Fanatics!!!!

Today I want to share with you a sneak peek of a stamp set called Honor Students! It's a great back to school set of stamps with school themed icons, sentiments and four characters. If you have kids or grandkids...or have ever seen a kid (LOL) you might want to pick this set up to add to your hoard! It also comes with a coordinating metal cutting die, very convenient! 

This set is going to be available on October 15, 2017 at:

Mark your calendars!

Below is a card that I made with this set. My card is very layered and dimensional, and the girl character is on one of those fun springs that make your cards wiggle. Um...what are those called? I don't know, but you know what I mean! I'll have a video loaded on You Tube so that you can see it in action. OH! Action Wobbles! That's what they're called! Anyhooooo.....the link to my channel is:

A video about this card will be loaded today, check it out so that you can see all of the action and layers yourself!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Greeting Farm ~sneakie peekie~ BEST FRIENDS!

Hello everyone!

I'm so happy that you stopped by my blog today! I have a preview for you of a stamp and die that you can pick up at on October 15th. I'm super excited about this one, she's SO adorable! The set is called "Best Friends" and I have a feeling that you're going to like her too!

Today I made a card using her on top of a washi tape background. I thought it turned out pretty cute and boy are these washi cards simple and fast to make! That's always nice, right? Plus you get to use up your washi stash and choose the exact colors in the background that you want, if you have a crazy washi collection. I do. I colored her up first with my Copic markers and then just added washi to the background to match her outfit.

I hope you like her! Stay tuned, I'll have previews over the next few days PLUS the blog hop is coming too! Visit again!

Little Llama by Pretty Cute Stamps!

Hello everyone!

If you follow me on any social media lately, you could probably safely call me llama obsessed. I'm not sure WHAT my deal is lately but I can't get enough llamas. On my quest to find a particular llama stamp set on etsy, I found another one that I liked even MORE. Gotta love it when that happens, am I right?

The shop is called Pretty Cute Stamps, and you really need to check it out. The shop is filled with original stamps that will make you squeal with delight! 

I'm showing you just a couple cards that I've made with this set so far. You'll be seeing more, trust me. Did I mention that I'm obsessed? Also, on the right you'll see the entire stamp set. The sentiments kill me!

Down below this photo you'll find a link to my You Tube video, if you're interested.

Have a great day!

Carol is letting it snow in her craft room today...

Hi Guys!

Guess what? They're baaaaack! Do you remember this polar bear and penguin set from last holiday season? It's in the shop and if you missed it last year, grab it! It's called "Let it snow" and has those cute little penguins, polar bear, hats, scarves and sentiments. Of course you need those coordinating dies so remember to add those to your cart as well! The sparkle and shine words are die cuts from GF dies but to be honest, I'm not sure if those are still in the shop or not. But the stamp set, honestly...GET IT!!!

Have a happy, crafty day!
