...Farm Fresh Friday : Punch Drunk

Be sure to scroll down to the next post to see my Verve Sneak Peeks for today!

It's Friday, so that means it's also time for another card showcasing the amazing stamps by The Greeting Farm (TGF). This week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge is entitled "Punch Drunk & In Love With TGF". We were to use at least two different punches on our creations, so I chose to use the Photo Corner Punch and Small Star Punch to create a Christmas Tree! I also used the Large Oval Punch and the Scallop Oval Punch for my sentiment. Vivi was stamped and embossed on Watercolor Paper, then watercolored with ink pads and an Aquapainter. The patterned paper was from TGF's Merry, Merry paper pack, and the sentiment was from the Keep Cozy set.

That's it for the card, but I have a couple of announcements to make in regards to TGF. First up...starting Tuesday, October 27th, the TGF Design Team will be showing some sneak previews of some of the new stamps coming out. We will also be holding a Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) at the TGF Forum from 8:00-10:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, November 1st...you will NOT want to miss it! I will be giving you more details as the day approaches. Until tomorrow...
