The Greeting Farm Preview: Creeper Piper

Hello!

Today we are previewing CREEPER PIPER at the Farm! Creeper Piper will release on Friday, July 1st along with the other AMAZING releases at 12:01 am CST during our DT blog hop.

Besides 3D projects, I love fancy fold cards as well. When I am in the mood or just want to challenge myself, I do try to make them and not just a regular card.

I thought Creeper Piper would look cool in a pocket card. I didn't want to just make a pocket card so I made it a pocket tag card!

This card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I did a little math and figure out a way to make it a regular size, not just a mini. LOL

As for the coloring, did you know it's hard to color red? Well, at least for me. LOL I always have a hard time getting the right red. I kind of got it now. I used R89, R37, R35, R14, C3, and C5. I know, these are not the usually red you guys are used to. I am odd. hehe

Oh the stick pins...these are my newest creations. Well, stickpins are not new but the style, the beads. I will try to add these to my Etsy store soon.


My Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink is still out on my desk so that was what I used here on this tag!


LOVE this sentiment! So perfect for a pocket card, don't you think? hehe

That's it for me today, but we sure do hope you'll stop by the TGF Blog tomorrow, beginning at 12:01 am CST for our"BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT Blog Hop/Release Party. The ENTIRE JULY RELEASE will be up for grabs (and this is One HUGE release!) as well as some prizes and SUR-prises going on around our Facebook page, etc.... we definitely don't want you to miss a single minute of the FUN that we have in store for you, so we can't wait for you to join us then! Don't forget to stop by the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog tomorrow for another awesome "Throwback Challenge" too! As new meets old, there is a TON going on this month on the Farm...thanks for being a part of it and ENJOY the HOT new releases tomorrow...all SIX of them!!!!"

Awesome tag/card. Love it!!
IU really like how you stamped piper on the tag and then used the writting over her.
And I too have a hard time with red. Its one of those colors. Sigh! :)But your red looks amazing!
