Mystery Box blog hop day 3!


This week we have a special release we are showcasing at The Greeting Farm! Twice this year, we released Mystery Boxes. Both of the boxes contained 5 new stamps, along with stickers and enamel pins and a few other extra goodies. We had a lot of amazing feedback, but we also had many who missed out on the special boxes. 

Our awesome customers asked and pleaded for the stamps to be released individually at a later time. Well, we are happy to announce that those pleas were heard, and this month is your chance to grab these exclusive cuties!! All 10 Mystery Box stamps will be released in The Greeting Farm Store at 12am EST on December 15th!!

To celebrate this fabulous release, we are doing something a little different. We are having 5 days of BLOG HOPS showcasing two stamps on each day. In addition, we will be picking 5 WINNERS total...one from each day of comments! Each person picked will win the two sets featured on the day they won. All winners will be announced on the December 15th New Release Blog Post so you will know what you won on the day the release goes live.

Comment daily on each DT post linked below then go back to the TGF post letting us know you completed the hop. On Sunday, one winner from each day of comments will be selected to win the two stamp sets featured on that specific day.

The first of the two sets we are showcasing today is Lettered. This small set of six sentiments in Marie's lovely handwritten script are perfect with so many of the TGF characters already in your stamp stash. To show as many of them as I could I decided to make a coordinating small note set pairing four of the sentiments with various Minkies. I kept the design clean and simple, repeating it on each of the four note cards in four different color schemes. 

We also have the new Aquarina mermaid to share today and I LOVE her! Growing this collection of lovely TGF mermaids makes me a very happy stamper because I totally believe one can never have too many mermaids, LOL! I challenged myself to make Aquarina more seasonal and work on a winter card so I paired this beauty with the penguins and sentiment from the older Let It Snow set to help transform her into an ice queen mermaid. I wanted her to look icy too so I kept the colors on her very light and translucent. I gotta say that I'm kind of in love with how this came together. ;)

Fikreta took the words right out of my mouth. This has to be one of my favorite mermaid. She looks so shy and sweet, content with her penguin friends. The cloud background is gorgeous. Always look forward to your awesome work.
