SPOTLIGHT ON: The Greeting Farm!

Hi everyone!

It's me, Jess.   Most of you know me as DT member for DCRU and also know that I work for The Greeting Farm Rubber Stamps!

You know, doing a spotlight on something I love and something that I also happen to use every day?  You'd think it'd be easy...but I feel like there are so many wonderful things I could say about TGF that it's almost hard to narrow it down, and hey, you've got stuff to do...you don't need to be here all day, LOL!

So, I'll start out with some highlights about the TGF product line itself.  Here are my favorite things and what YOU need to know about The Greeting Farm:

* They sell unmounted, red rubber stamps on cling foam, to be used with an acrylic block.  The quality of the rubber is the best I've seen in the industry and the images are deeply etched, giving even super fine detail a fresh, clean impression every time.

* They are available in singles and sets, and also in some collector series.  There is truly something for everyone at TGF...lots of different categories...ALL adorable!  Some of the bigger TGF lines are Anya/Ian stamps, Twinkle Tots, and some new animals by artist Marina Neira that are wonderfully detailed and SUPER amazing to color in!

*TGF now offers many digital designs in addition to rubber which always makes for instant gratification.  

*TGF offers SO many wonderful images that are super fun to color.   Coloring is definitely my favorite part of stamping and papercrafting and I just am really happy with the results when I use a TGF image.

*Last but not least (and probably not last either because there is so much more I could say!), TGF really listens to customers and wholesalers about what people want to stamp.  They are also very affordable, in my opinion, and Claudia has REALLY great pricing on the newest releases, so if you haven't yet been able to head over to the DieCuts R Us Store, check the Greeting Farm out!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing one of my favorite products with me!  On behalf of TGF, Marie and I want to thank you for all of your amazing support and to thank Claudia for carrying the line and LOVING it!  

As a thank you for reading,  The Greeting Farm has a PRIZE for one lucky commenter today!   ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive a SASSY SUZI stamp, so be sure to leave a comment letting us know how YOU feel about TGF and we'll keep the contest open until 11:59 ET tonight!  The winner will be annoucned tomorrow here on the DCRU DT blog.  GOOD LUCK!

I luv TGF stamps! All of them! If I could afford it, I would buy them all and then some to give away 'cause they are so darn cute! Thanks for continuing to produce new stamps for us "crafters"! :)

I love, love, love The Greeting Farm stamps, especially the Anyas and Ians. But the new ones that came out are so cute, too, I wish I could get them all. But like you said, they are really priced affordably so that's nice. Love all the cards shown--the DTs are so inspiring they always make me want to buy more!

I love the Greeting Farm stamps! I thought nothing could top Miss Anya for my favority TGF stamps, but then the darling sprouts, and tots...but as an obsessed Twilight saga fan there can be no better Greeting Farm image than Edward et al. Thank you for this fabulous opportunity to win some of their images!!

I love TGF stamps. My first one was Skater boy--I just love him. Perfect for a teen boy--and I have two of them.

DonnaMundinger said...

OMG these are the cutest stamps! I so want to become a stamper and TGF images are adorable! xxD

Erica said...

I am addicted to TGF! I love that they are now doing digi stamps because then I don't have to wait to get them!

connie said...

I think TGF stamps are so cute. I haven't been able to start my collection yet..maybe after the new year.

Rachel said...

95% of my stamps are TGF, there is nothing cuter IMO!! Just placed an order with you guys too, I really love this site and thanks for the opportunity to win :0)

Card samples are fantastic, you ladies are so creative!

Gwen said...

Wow, Jessica! Your sample cards are fantastic! I didn't know TGF until I started working with you on the DT. Now, I'm a huge fan. I've got several of the rubber stamps and a few of the new digis. I love them all! Great impressions each and every time...you did not exaggerate at all...these are amazing quality. The price is soooo affordable compared to some "other" brands I've used. Wonderful, wonderful post for an amazing product...going to jump over to the DCRU store and add on to my wish list...that Sassy Suzi is a must have.

Smiles!

What adorable cards! I love seeing TGF being used by more and more people, their stamps are always wonderfully illustrated and a fabulous stamp!

Yvette said...

TGF stamps ROCK!

Jessica, your cards are amazing especially the Geisha Anya. You did an incredible job on her outfit and "make-up". The Rock the Farm card is just too stinkin cute too!

Mrs Weyremaster said...

Hi My name is Suzi, and I'm a TGF Addict, tehe. You think i'm joking? I really do love TGF stamps, and use them on about 99% of the cards i make. They really are the best quality rubberstamps i've come across, the detail is brilliant, the thickness of the rubber is amazing, and they already come mounted on ezfoam, what more could you want?

Like Jessica said, they are the best, and so is she, she is one of the most inspiring friendliest people that i've met in this amazing online crafty world we live in. Your endless encouragement and inspiration is greatly appreciated. You are one of the best things about TGF :)

Have a great day
Suzi

TGF Stamps are just gorgous!! I LOVE using mine. They are so nice to colour :)
I Love the digi stamps because they are here in an instant and they are a lot more cheaper which for me is a big issue when I want to buy stamps.
All the example cards are fab :)

Gabby said...

Hmmm...is there enough space here for me to express what I feel for The Greeting Farm? Ok...I'll tell it in a nutshell... I absolutely LOVE The Greeting Farm! So much that I BEG my hubby for some extra $$$ to pick up anything that's limited or bound to sell out...because I DO NOT want to miss it! I have ALMOST the complete collection and my dream is to one day own them all. I even have a set or two I think that were available as Pink Poison and no longer in store!!! I mean I was even shaky when I was contacted to be part of TGF...even if just for a month...lol! I'm STILL walking on air! Plus who doesn't like those cuties? They are so much fun to color and just having them on a simple project brings a HUGE smile to my face! So all in all...I {heart} The Greeting Farm!!!

I love TGF stamps and I'm lovin the new release. Wish I collect all of them, takes time and money to get them all. But there's always new stamps coming up so it's a bit hard to try collect them all.

Jodi said...

I came across TGF stamps early this year and since that time my collection has really grown. Not only do I love these stamps, but all four of my kids love to color in these images so that is an added bonus! Marie just keeps coming out with more and more cuties ~ I can't keep up LOL! I voted for Sassy Suzy when the contest was running and was happy to see she made it into rubber. I would be thrilled to win this cutie ~ and she would definitely get lots of love over here because my girls think she is just too cool!
