GREETING FARM & TWINERY BLOG SWAP/HOP

Welcome to our combined Blog Swap/Hop today featuring two fantastic companies, The Greeting Farm and The Twinery!   If you're just getting here from Angelica's blog, WELCOME!  If you have yet to begin the hop, please visit the TWINERY BLOG to begin!  Hooray!



We are so excited to bring you a fun hop, loads of inspiration when the world of TGF Rubber stamps collides with the quality baker's twine we've all come to know and love, and some of the most talented designers in the industry with new and fun projects to share!






Did we mention PRIZES? There are definitely a few of those too so you'll want to check out our event today! Thank you so much for coming!


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, 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 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.



When my twinery pack arrived in the mail I couldn't wait to play. I use twinery twine all the time on my cards, but wanted to do something extra-special with it for the blog hop. Straight away, I knew Iwanted to make a rainbow out of twine, so I set about thinking how it would work. In the end it was super-easy, and teamed with TGF's clear "MY FAIRY PRINCESS" set, I was rather pleased with the end result. The diecut clouds are cut from glitter cardstock, and the TGF sentiment even stamped really well onto the glitter card with Stazon ink, which was a lovely surprise. I colored my fairies with copics , of course, and added some stickles to their wings too.
