HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!
2012 is already off to an awesome start because it's RELEASE DAY at The Greeting Farm! Can I hear a "woo-hoo"?
We are SO excited because not only are there a tonne of new releases available in the store today, there are a TONNE of new faces being introduced on the TGF BLOG! We are welcoming 8 new Design Team members to our "SHOWCASE" team, the team that will be carrying you through until our next round of previews in March. Our new SHOWCASE team will be bringing you lots of fresh ideas using our new releases and some fun tutorials and other special posts along the way.
The fabulous SIX new releases we have been previewing for the last week or so are now available to buy in the TGF Store! And if you fancy being popped into the draw to WIN all six of them, simply hop around and say hello to our new PREMIERE and SHOWCASE teams.
For my new release creations I decorated a Moleskine Notebook and made a Gable Box.
This is the first time I have coloured an actual image properly on kraft using Copics - eek!!! It was SO different - you have to choose your colours very carefully, lol! I stamped CC Madden in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured with Copics as per usual. I found that this paper soaked up the ink a lot so I had to use a lot more that I would normally do when colouring on white card. If you missed the 2 preview cards I made with CC Madden last week, please CLICK HERE to take a peek.
For my second project I decided to make a Gable Box (again, first time I have made one of these - super easy!). This is actually my 2nd attempt. I made the first from purple card and was going to go down a gothic, dark kind of road with it but once I'd made the box I couldn't find any paper that worked - oops!! So I started again with good old kraft cardstock and voila:
I really wanted to use the larger of the sentiments from the Lucky Bunnies stamp set (LOVE the font!). So I stamped it twice onto kraft cardstock using Vintage Photo ink and doodled around the edges with a brown fineliner. If you would like to see the card and corner bookmark I made with the other stamps in this fab clear set, please CLICK HERE for my preview post.
Myself and the rest of the TGF team hope you've enjoyed the last week or so of previews, announcements and are SO grateful that you are sharing in our excitement as TGF rings in the NEW YEAR!
HAPPY 2012 everyone! Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to check out all of the FUN!
