Hi, everybody! I’m joining in the second day of previews of the August release at The Greeting Farm! There’s something for everyone in this month’s release, and it’s all about celebrations and birthdays because…TGF is celebrating its 5th birthday in August! WOOHOO!
It’s “clear” that you’ll enjoy all the creative possibilities with the stamp set we’re previewing today, especially if you’re into solid stamping! My first card for today was created with a few of the different rectangles in the “Clear Birthday” set.
I stamped the cake stand with silver pigment ink, then stamped the rectangles to make a tiered birthday cake, then completed the image by stamping the candles in a different color ink. I also heat embossed the full image with clear embossing powder. (The sentiment on my card is also included in the set.) I added rhinestones for a finishing touch!

This set isn’t just about building birthday cakes! I used the gumdrop stamp and sentiment from this set to make a clean and simple card:
Each gumdrop was stamped in a different color. Then, I added glitter glue (Distress Stickles Rock Candy) to each gumdrop to give it a little sugary sparkle. How sweet is that?
So, what do you think? Would you like to win this stamp set? Great! You’ll find the full list of the design team members participating in today’s preview at The Greeting Farm’s blog!
Stop by each designer’s blog to check out their preview creations, leave a SWEET comment for each one (and stop by the TGF blog to leave a comment there and let us know you’ve visited all the blogs, and we’ll pick a random winner from all the comments!
We’ve planned one more day of sneak peeks for you…so I’ll see you tomorrow for Day 3 of the TGF August previews! Make sure to also join us on August 1 for our new release blog hop, when the new release stamps and will be available in the TGF Store!
