Hey Farm Friends!
As you can tell by now, there are some SUPER exciting happenings on the Farm this week! First of all, as you may have seen on Friday, we are thrilled to welcome NAOUAL du MORTIER as our December Guest for The Greeting Farm, and are also giddy with excitement to welcome SHERI GILSON to Team Anya as our Guest for the Month of December! These lovely ladies have jumped right into previews and we’re thrilled to have them along for the ride!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a sentiment-only set here on the Farm, and after MANY requests by all of you out there in blog-land, we are previewing a BRAND NEW SENTIMENT set today, “Because of You”. This whimsical and fun-fonted set comes complete with that feeling of warm-fuzzies.
To show you just how adorable these new sentiments are, we’ve decided to show you some preview projects today using ONLY a sentiment as the focal point. Be sure to check out the TGF Blog AND the Club Anya & Friends blog as well for some GREAT ideas and heartfelt hugs 🙂
Today at Club Anya and Friend’s we are CASEing Alice’s Wertz and her gorgeous card! I had the pleasure of picking this card out because there are so many elements in it that are just stunning. First, I’m also a sucker for a beautifully vintage card and Alice has managed to combine Devil Anya with a wonderful vintage look. Not to mention that this layout is absolutely stunning too!
Here is Alice’s card:
And here’s my CASE:
I used Oliver from the Fuzzy Wuzzy set being released Dec. 1 and a new sentiment, “Today is brighter because of you”, from the Because of You set for my card today. The paper is some gorgeous Christmas paper from the Girl’s Paperie called Tinsel and Twig. I watercolored Oliver using Distress Inks and an aqua painter brush on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and he’s stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black (which is surprisingly waterproof – though I did stamp this about a week ago so it did have time to cure). All of the papers are sponged with Brushed Corduroy TH Distress Ink. The snowflakes are Martha Stewart.
Thanks for stopping by today, and oh…there’s ONE more little thing. ONE of the DT members (is it a Farmer? Guest Designer? Team Anya member? hmmmm….) has a “Because of You” set hidden on their blog today! Be sure to stop by and see their beautiful projects and ONE lucky winner will be announced tomorrow during our “HOPPIN’ into the HOLIDAYS” Blog Hop, beginning at 7pm CST on the TGF Blog!
