There She Goes Preview | Day ONE

Howdy!  It's an exciting week here for There She Goes and the Trendsetters have a fun little blog hop to kick off the new release - PLUS you have a chance to win some goodies, so keep reading and find out the details.  The hop started off at There She Goes, but if you came to my blog from Julie's, then you're at the right stop.


Have a bad day at the office? Or maybe you have a bad office every day?  If either of these pertains to your situation, you will definitely enjoy this tongue-and-cheek set illustrated by Jessica…and anyone would be happy to receive a creation using this hilarious set!

Confidential is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 12 stamps and will sell for $15.

 
This set is so hysterical, full of so many witty sentiments that are bound to get a laugh.  I combined a few stamps on this card.  I stamped the laptop and flower vase first in Memento Tuxedo Black and then masked over them and stamped the big image.  I colored it all with Copics and then cut it with a Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities die and traced the inside of the die with a black marker.  Loved this look when I saw Jodi use it, so I'm totally copying her.

Once again Chris Dark has amazed us with a whimsical and spring-inspired stamp set. Who wouldn’t want to be outside enjoying the scenes of spring as everything comes to life? This set is a celebration of exactly that!

Garden of Life is a 3X4 stamp set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7.

 
I made a super easy and fun card with Garden of Life and started by stamping the sunflower 4 times in Memento Tuxedo Black and then coloring them with copics.  I added the dragonflies and added some glitter in their wings - and of course I needed to add some fun buttons to those flowers too. 
 
Would you like a chance to win the Confidential and Garden of Life stamp sets? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Confidential / Garden of Life Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Confidential / Garden of Life stamp sets. The winner will be announced Saturday (Apr. 30th) during the Release Party Chat.

Next on the blog hop is the super fabulous Kim!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
