Final Release Day Preview and a Hop!



Happy Friday everyone! The Greeting Farm has been showcasing their new May Release of some adorable clear stamps sets on the TGF Blog for the last 2 days. These new clear stamps are NOW available in The Greeting Farm Store. Today they are back showcasing the last 2 sets of clear stamps along with an amazing BLOG HOP!! They also have some guest designers joining in!! The last 2 clear stamps sets being featured on the TGF Blog are BEARY CUTE and WOOD FRIENDS. And, because it’s release day The Greeting Farm is having a BLOG HOP. This time around they are going to pick two winners and each person will receive 3 clear stamp sets from this new release! Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog listed below and head back to the TGF Blog to let us know you completed the hop.


Ok since today is the last day of previews, NOW you can have a cuteness overload! Seriously, how stinkin cute are these two sets and can't you just see the little bears on a Mother's day card and the deer on a baby shower card? The ideas are only as endless as your imagination! For both my cards I wanted to keep the design simple, so as not to take away from the watercolor effect. I had a scrap of weathered wood looking paper from a while back and I just knew it would be a perfect fit for my little deer, especially with some enamel dots and a bit of matching twine. The sentiment that came with the set was too perfect to pass up so I stamped it in Rich cocoa memento ink right at the top. Just as with the previous releases, I heat embossed the images with white embossing powder and watercolored them up with my TH distress markers. Don't you just love the way the watercolors flow smoothly and create such a sharp contrast to the white outline? I went in with my E49 copic marker and added some color to the nose and eye of the deer, which to me made a huge difference. For the bears, I deliberately colored them completely different colors, to me it says love has no color...or at least that was my point :D. I won't hold you up too long, you've still got quite a ways to go on the hop so keep moving and leaving comments for your chance to win!
