A new release to DIE for at The Greeting Farm!

The Greeting Farm is moving in a NEW direction, and we are so excited to unveil what you may have seen bits and pieces of after CHA! Yes, the rumors are true! While TGF will still continue to bring you the cute characters you've come to know and love, I'm excited to share a new collection of clear stamp sets that come packaged with....drumroll...... MATCHING DIES!

We are combing this hop with our Farm Fresh Friday and the theme this week is:

USE A DIE!!

TGF took its time testing these sets until they found the perfect fit and we think you will love them!  They will work in any standard die cutting machine (Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Grand Calibur, etc.) and come tucked in with their matching stamp sets for an amazing price of only $10.50 per set!  Your papercrafting adventure just got a little more exciting, right?  The possibilities with these sets are endless and you'll see just what we're talking about when you hop with us today!
 
The names of the sets are:
 Mini Cupcakes w/ die
Mini Flower w/ die
Mini Clouds w/ die
Mini Butterflies w/ die

To celebrate this exciting news, The Greeting Farm is welcoming SIX talented guest bloggers to our party today and we couldn't be more excited to have them play along with us!

Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm's blog once you have completed the blog hop for your chance to win ALL FOUR new stamp/die sets!  We cannot wait for you to see all of the super creative ways you are going to be able to use these new sets. We will keep this contest open until NOON CST tomorrow (02/16) so grab some snacks, have fun getting inspired on our hop, and enjoy our new release that is simply, to "Die" for!
  
The blog hop order is:

I made two projects for the hop today!! My first one is a card featuring Mini Cupcakes w/Die. The dps are from Wild Rose Studio Strawberry Picnic.
In the closeup, you can see I used a Pink Pearl Pen for the frosting and a puffy heart sticker for the center. The awesome sentiment "You're Super Sweet!" comes with this set!
 
Now onto my 2nd project. This one started as a white 5x5 canvas. I used a foam brush to paint on my Acrylic Paints (some are glittery) and then I took a cotton ball to "swish" the paint around. In certain areas I used the cotton ball to wipe off some of the paint. It's hard to tell in the photos, but the background is sparkly. :)
 
I used several of the new sets on this canvas: Mini Flower w/Die, Mini Clouds w/Die, and Mini Butterflies w/Die.
 I used various Distress Ink pads to stamp the butterflies and flower. To color the clouds, I stamped the image with VersaMark and then rubbed chalk over them. I added Icy White Pearl Pen to the heart on the small cloud.

Here's a close-up. 
The sentiment is from Dylusions Quintessential Quotes. You can see in the closeup I raised the small cloud on pop-dots. I hope you enjoyed my projects!

Now don't forget to head to ANITA's Blog and back to The Greeting Farm at the end.

Hugs!
 Rosie :)
