The Greeting Farm - Be Mine

Hi everyone, Jo here. Can you believe it, we are already in the middle of January! Let's not waste any time, I have a Valentine's Day themed card ready for you today. A fun card combining the newly released Love Anya Digi Digi Set and the Be Mine Anya Digi Stamp.


All images are colored with Copic markers. I increased the size of the cupcake in the Love Anya Digi Set. The frosting is covered with Star Dust Stickles glitter glue and some teal heart sprinkles. Anya is adhered to the card, along with the cupcake, with dimensional foam adhesive.

The images lay atop a scalloped circle die cut and designer paper at the base of the card. Lastly, I tied a yellow grosgrain bow around the card front.

The Greeting Farm January Release Blog Hop

The JANUARY 2023 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! This month we introduced 3 new sets. Our first set called MISS ANYA SWEATERS features 3 big Anyas in comfy sweaters ready to meet up for a cup of coffee or tea. In our second set called HAPPY DAYS, we took you camping with the cutest woodland animals who are snuggled up by a warm campfire. Lasty, we showcased COZY KISSES ANYA with her cute puppy pal. This set gives you two different hat stamps to style your Anya.


My card takes elements from all three stamp set. The majority of the images are from Happy Days, the sentiment and beanie are from Cozy Kisses Anya, and the heart is from Miss Anya Sweaters. 


All images are colored on watercolor paper with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The image is framed out with a foliage frame die cut. I inked yellow clouds using a stencil in the background.
