"Was it all a DREAM?"

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 had so much fun with this set. Let me show you a couple more canvases I created. Here's the first...

This is actually the first one I made because I couldn't resist that little girl stamp. I used Gelatos to create the background. I stamped the little girl image and sentiment on and embossed some of the background stamps using white embossing powder. I drizzled on some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, added some trim and ta da! 

Here's a close up of it...

I kept all the colors soft and light. I really love the way this one turned might be my favorite. 

Next I wanted to do something completely different so...

Again, I embossed some of the background stamps and added the sentiment...also embossed. Then I went to town with the Dylusions sprays! I added some torn black lace and foil butterflies.

Check it out up close...

Love those colors!

So I hope you all can see how really versatile this stamp set is...not only for mixed media but also for cards and layouts and...well, I am sure you can figure it out. :)

I have big, BIG news!

Hello everyone! Do any of you remember when The Greeting Farm put out a call for people to be involved in a secret mixed media project?  Well, I decided put on my big girl panties and give it a try. So I sent them some pictures of some of my creations and...I got picked! I am so excited! I love, love, love TGF stamps...they have been a favorite of mine for a long time! I am totally thrilled to be able to work with this fantastic company. And the best is PREVIEW DAY!!! I finally get to tell you my secret!
As part of this "special project" I was asked to create a mixed media canvas using a new stamp set from The Greeting's called "Dreamy" and it is wonderful. It's a HUGE 8.5 x 11 rubber stamp set! Same great quality as all the other TGF stamps.

So's here's what I created...

I created the background with some pages from an old book, some paint and some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. But what really makes it are all the great stamps from The Greeting Farm!

Here's a close up of part of the canvas...

I love the variety of stamps you get with this set...stamps that you can use to create an awesome background, sentiments and more! In addition to creating really cool mixed media projects, these stamps can be used on layouts and to create cards...there are so many options! To check out more creations using this gorgeous stamp set, head on over to the TGF blog. The "Dreamy" stamp set will be released on June 15th...and all of us will have MORE projects to share with you! (And there's a blog hop!) I will also be posting a video on my Youtube channel (AKCaraboo) to tell you a little more about each one of my creations on the come on over and check it out!
Happy Crafting!
