Greeting Farm

Greeting Farm stamps are fun to color and use on cards or any paper project. Here I used a block of wood that is about 4" square. I painted it white with acrylic paint. The wood is rough so much of the paint soaked in leaving a nice texture. I covered the painted wood with  paper from Lasting Impressions.
It is hard to see but there is a Maya Road frame covered with glitter behind the stamped image (named Snuggle) and behind that is lace. The blue flower is painted metal and the lavender rose buds are fabric.
Add a sentiment to give it function.

Two different uses of wood and stamps.

Paper Flowers

Love, love, love to make flowers. These are made using Donna Salazar's new flower dies (Rose and Carnation). A while back I purchased a ream of paper at Kelly's Paper off their clearance table (I'm a paper junkie) that is heavy but not quite card stock,  cream in color with a shinny surface. One day I was playing around with the flower dies and soon realized that the white on white looked cool. Only used the paper originally because I had sooo much on hand.
The background is a tag made from cardboard from an old box painted with white paint. The vine is  Sizzix Vine with Leaves die (leaves cut off), And there you have it.

To see more flowers made with colored/printed cardstock see post below Festive Friday post.
