We are very pleased to be releasing our new designs of Buddy Bear this Friday 31st July.

We have shown a couple of the designs a few weeks ago, and before Fridays release we intend to show you the rest!

The stamps will be available in clear acrylic and there are 8 designs so far.
Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.

Today we wanted to share with you a special card we made for our sisters 21st birthday. Rachael was 21 on Friday and she (like ourselves) is a HUGE Twilight fan, and most definitely a member of Team Edward!

We designed the card using the Twilight colours Red, Black and White, and drew an image to represent the lovely Mr. Cullen, which we sparkled up with iridescent glitter.

It got us thinking if you could choose any fictional book character to be made into a rubber stamp who would it be? We would love to hear your suggestions and see who is the most popular.

We got a little carried away with the Twilight theme and created a 3 tier cake to go with the card. We thought we would share the photo with you, unfortunately the cake did not last that long, but the sparkly sugar Edward on top remains... that is until someone gets the munchies!
Thanks for looking, Katie and Colette.

We have just taken delivery of some of the wonderful NEW Sarah Kay designs and restocked some old favourites too!
Stamps back in stock include Spring Blossoms, Rosalie's Bicycle and A little help from Margot.
Also back in stock is Roses Garden, seen below.

I have coloured the image with Pro markers again, and finished with Prima flowers.

Thanks for looking, Katie.

We have some great News to share today. The Rain, Snow, Shine Miss Anya set and other Greeting Farm stamps are now restocked in our web shop, but you will have to be quick, we only have a limited number left!

I have used the Rain Anya stamp for my card today and coloured her with Pro markers which I am absolutely loving!!! I have had them for a few weeks now and have finally got the hang of how to use them. I wanted to create an older style for my card and thought the image would look good as if it were an old black and white photo. To do this I choose to use all greys for the colour and think it works well. The flowers and spotty chipboard centre are from Prima.
Thanks for looking, Katie.
