TGF My Home Sneak Peek!

Thursday, October 29, 2009

A happy Thursday morning to you all!

(Please scroll down for the TSG Mini Set Blog Hop!)

This morning I've got a couple of sneak peeks of the newest set to be released from The Greeting Farm!! The set is called My Home and it's ADORABLE! If I had to imagine what a house in TGF world would look like, these would be it! Can't you just imagine the Sprouts living here?! I think I would have loved to have seen a little cottage in this collection too - with a cute thatched roof! Oooo, wouldn't that be adorable?!

There are two homes in this set and a bunch of sentiments, so for this first card I used the little apartment looking one and a matching sentiment. The layout is this week's Mojo Sketch (MOJO110) and I used (up) some of my old Basic Grey paper from the Sugared Collection. The shingled roofs reminded me of a gingerbread house so I naturally went with a sugary theme! :)

This second card shows the other house (more like mansion) in the set. Again, I used up some old Basic Grey paper and I played around more with a cloud template. It's not a store bought one. I created it with a post it note and my corner punch. Just cut an arc on the top of your post it note and then, with the guard removed, clip around the arc with the punch to create a large scalloped border. Mask off your building, then, by working from the top down on your image, apply the template over your image and sponge in an upward motion until you have the color intensity you need. Repeat this however many times you want. Looks cool doesn't it?? This may very well be my new favorite technique! :D
