Blog Hop {The Twinery & The Greeting Farm}



The Introduction:
If you are hopping along with us on The Twinery and The Greeting Farm blog hop today: You should have come here from Tracey Pickersgill's blog. If you did, you are in the right place! Welcome!
If you aren't already a follower, I'd love to have you follow my blog!

If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you! Please join along in the hop - you can start at The Twinery's blog.

The Greeting Farm first sprouted into the stamping world in 2008 as a small dream and has cultivated into something wonderful because of wonderful customers like you! With three years of farm-fresh images under their belt, TGF is going strong and love brings you fun-loving, animated characters, including the best-selling "Anya" line. The Greeting Farm brings you cute, charismatic images that are LOADS of fun to COLOR! There is truly something for EVERYONE on the Farm and we are so glad to be teaming up with the Twinery today!

As for The Twinery, their twine is made from 100% cotton, it's eco-friendly and made in the USA. Whether you're gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, this TOP quality baker's twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! The Twinery's twine comes in 14 delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment! It has lots of color which lends to a fun, candy-striped look.

The Prizes:
There are TWO prize packs up for grabs -
The Greeting Farm is giving away their ENTIRE November release EARLY to one lucky winner- that is four stamps in all and EARLY nonetheless!


The Twinery is giving away one “COLORFUL BUNCH” sampler pack!



The Details:
Leave a comment on each blog along the hop. The winners will be chosen randomly from all comments on the manufacturer blogs AND the designer blogs.

Blog comments close on Sunday, October 23rd at 5pm {CST}.

The Project:


I created this card by stamping the "Piper" stamp from The Greeting Farm multiple times onto basic white cardstock.

I colored the lower portion of the stamped images using Copic markers and then punched them out using a square squeeze punch from Fiskars.


I chose four colors of The Twinery's twine to match the images - Maraschino, Mandarin, Peapod, and Caribbean.

I wrapped the card with the twine, added the image blocks using dimensional adhesive, and ended up with a clean and simple (and fun!) card.



Thanks for stopping by today!
