TGF and The 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 Tifany DeGough'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 bringing 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.

Here's my project using the vampire from TGF's Spooktacular digi set and twine in the Honeydew-Light Chartruese color.


I tried my hand at the Spirelli technique and was hoping to make something that resembelled a spider web...alas, as cool as I think the web turned out I think it would be more effective in black, LOL! Charcoal twine is definately going on my shopping list!

Now...I DID mention something about PRIZES, didn't I? ;) There are TWO prize packs up for grabs and you will have until Sunday, October 23rd at 5pm CST to comment on ALL the blogs and enter for your chance to win one of them!

The Greeting Farm is giving away their ENTIRE November release EARLY to one lucky winner - that is four stamps in all and EARLY nonetheless!


The Twinery is giving away one “COLORFUL BUNCH” sampler pack!


That's TWO great prizes, TWO chances to win...and endless inspiration beginning HERE:
