"Was it all a Dream?" The Greeting Farm "DREAMY" Release Blog Hop

Hey, everyone!  I'm here with The Greeting Farm today and I'm happy to report that no, it definitely was NOT a DREAM!

That's right!  Today is the super special mid-month RELEASE DAY for the brand new mixed-media DREAM kit... appropriately titled "DREAMY"!   This jumbo-sized, 8.5x11 FULL sheet of stamps is available starting NOW over in the TGF STORE, so be sure to grab yours before they sell out!

I have created a 12x12 Layout using the "DREAMY" kit.  I used the textured stamps on my background, also used one of the cute circle stamps that has strips with  white paint to give more texture.  I stamped the banner on white card stock, then fuzzy cut it out.  I used another circle stamp and stamped it on white card stock then punched them out and added butterflies to them.  On my MOM & ME I stamped one of the textured stamps on them.  I had so much funny playing with this set.. I cant wait to go create some more projects now that it has been released.. YAY!!!

The Greeting Farm Preview of the "DREAMY" Kit

Previewing the "DREAMY" kit, which will be released on the 15th and is geared toward mixed media but versatile enough for card making too! The Kit is 8.5x11 Rubber stamps.
I loved working with this new stamp set.. Its so versatile.. I love all the images and sentiments that come with it.. The lil angle is so adorable.. you can use her as an angel or just as a lil doll.  I stamped some of the stamps with versamark on to the canvas,  then embossed them with clear embossing powder, then sprayed the canvas with some shimmers.  I used 2 of the sentiments stamps.  I paper pieced the lil angle.  I had alot of fun creating this canvas. Don't for get to go visit The Greeting Farms Blog: 
Thank you for stopping by.  Big Hugs

Thank You Tag

Hi eveyone!  Its been a lil bit since I've posted a project.  So I thought I would share with you this adorable tag I made for my bestie Suzie.. I used the Julie Nutting mixed media doll.  This one is adorable. I used the Prima Printery 6x6 paper pad for this one.  I add a pair of leggings to her outfit.  I colored the top of her dress and her leggings with a glitter pin, I love the way they turned out.  I colored her skin with my copics, and I used my watercolor pencils for her hair.  Add some lace trim, bling, a stickpin, doily and FLOWERS of course.  

Thank you all for stopping by.. Hugs Shirley
