July IAR Challenge

Happy Monday! How is everyone's July going? The heat is on where I am currently. Stay cool everybody! Here's my project for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog


Today is my birthday month and decided to make myself a card =) The front showcases a "J" alpha chipboard piece. The theme is shabby chic, using white, aqua and neutral tones.


I added a cute miniature bottle filled with glitter for a little whimsy. I used a floral spray that was in my flower stash and paired it with I Am Roses flowers and a bit of lace.

May IAR Challenge

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Here's my project for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog


Here is an altered canvas notebook that I covered with I Am Roses flowers. The notebook is pre-made and I layered multiple flowers on the cover.


My inspiration for the colors were drawn from the little egg nest embellishment. I wanted to use aqua/teal and white tones. The flowers are adhered to the canvas with hot glue.

 Happy Thursday! Here's my project for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog


I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Here is a card that I created using soft pink and red flowers.


I made a trio of shaker hearts, ranging from small - large sizes. The red summer cottage flower adds a pop of color. I added a cute "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment on a stitched flag banner die on the bottom.

The Greeting Farm - Ready, Set, Snow!

Hi everyone, Jo here. How's your weather this month? I hope you are staying warm and cozy. This fun Winter themed card was created using clear stamps sets Ready Set Snow and Holiday Anya 11, as well as the Happy Winter Digi Set. Let's get started!

The digital images were printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock using an inkjet printer. I die cut a scalloped rectangle frame in red cardstock. Using Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China, I stenciled in clouds and stamped some snowflakes.

All images were colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. The sentiment was stamped on a stitched rectangle die cut and adhered to the bottom of the frame.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Make sure to join our Facebook Community for more inspiration!

November I Am Roses Challenge

 **(CLICK HERE: The Greeting Farm November Release Blog Hop)**

Happy Wednesday! Here's my project for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog


I created this wreathe to use as d├ęcor to hang on the wall in my entryway. The original wreathe is from the .99 Store. It was sad and needed a lot of help.


I used a variety of flower sizes ranging from 1/4" - 3", tucked beneath some of the flowers and foliage that came with the original wreathe.


I used the Daisy Brown Stamens as a cute little "mushroom" accent tucked in around the flowers.

The Greeting Farm - November 2023 Release Blog Hop

The November 2023 New Release is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! This month we introduced 3 new sets. Our first stamp set called HOMEBODY ANYA features Anya chillaxin' in comfy pajamas with her cup of coffee and bunny slippers listening to songs on her phone. Next, we have a set called SWEATER COUPLE which features Anya, Ian, and their pet cat staying warm in coordinating sweaters. Lastly, our beautiful Anya resumed her travels, and headed to Athens to visit the Acropolis in the set called ANYA IN GREECE.

Gotta love Homebody Anya! She would be me, just with short hair hahaha. My card showcases this stamp set and I gave Anya a little companion from the Sweater Couple stamp set.

All images are colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. The base is black cardstock. The cute little heart is from Anya in Greece.
