There She Goes Preview | Day TWO

Welcome back to day 2 for the little sneaky peeks for the upcoming There She Goes release!  We're celebrating with a blog hop challenge for you and there is chance to win some goodies, so be sure to read along to the end of my post to find out how.  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.



Know someone who takes everything too seriously?  Or maybe you know someone who needs a little pick-me-up?  This set illustrated by our fabulous Torico will “brighten” anyone’s day!  There are not only a variety of lamp bases and shades, but there are also some heartfelt and humorous sentiments to coordinate perfectly with the images.

Lighten Up is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $15.


How adorable are these teeny tiny lamps?!!  I just love the silhouette of these particular images from Lighten Up.  I thought it would be fun to have the light kind of illuminating around the lamps, so I stamped the images in black Staz-On ink and then reverse masked over the images in order to sponge the inside of the oval as a template.  The layout is Sweet Stop's SSS105.
 
Would you like a chance to win the Lighten Up stamp set?  Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Lighten Up 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 Lighten Up stamp set.  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!
