Happy Sunday Farmers!! Today is March 1st and you know what that means, right?!! The New Release for March has now hit the TGF Store!! These new stamps are amazing, and would make an awesome addition to your TGF Stamp collection!

As always, you have a chance to WIN the entire March release, which includes Frou Frou Royal, HG-Classy, and Dollie with Kitty. I think you’ll agree the DT cards you’ve seen this week have all showcased these stamps beautifully! You’re in for a real treat as you blog hop with us today.

One lucky winner who visits all of the DT’s blogs, comments, and comes back here letting us know they did will take home the ENTIRE March Release from The Greeting Farm. Here’s our Blog Hop line-up: 

KRYSTAL (Me)


My project for today's blog hop isn't a card, its an altered tile using Dollie with Kitty!


Isn't she darling? I stamped her onto a 4x4" travertine tile that I picked up at Home Depot (9 in a pack for about $4) using timber brown Stazon ink. Since I hadn't planned on using copics to color, I didn't need to bake it, so I dove right in coloring with my prisma color pencils. Since the pencils are wax based, there's not ,much chance of smudging or smearing when water is introduced to the surface so the image remains intact. Next I stamped the sentiment from Dollie With Hearts (available now) also in timber brown Stazon. I masked off both Dollie and the sentiment and used a script stamp to create a background, alternating timber brown Stazon with gold acrylic paint. Last to create a more aged look I inked around the edges with TH walnut stain distress ink. since distress ink is water based I decided to seal the edges a bit so that the color wouldn't run and ruin my Dollie. I wanted Dollie to stand out more so I used a white gel pen and outlined the entire image and sentiment. It was a subtle addition that made all the difference. I love how this project turned out so much that I'm working on a complete set of Dollie coasters and I can't wait to show you guys the progress as I complete them! I need one more Dollie stamp and I have my eye on Dollie with Ice Cream closely tied with Dollie with Bow next so stay tuned to see which one I end up getting/using!


Please stop by all the Designers’ blogs to leave them some love! Then, be sure to come back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know you completed the hop! You have until Monday, March 2nd 11:00pm CST to leave your comments. We’ll announce the winner on our Wow’d Me Wednesday post!!
Have an awesome day and a great time hopping!

  15. What an awesome idea Krystal ! I'll have to swing by the tile department next time I stop in at the HD. I was thinking of attaching an adhesive wall hook until you mentioned coasters. I can't wait to see the rest of the set :)
