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 the There She Goes blog, but if you came to my blog from Julie's, then you're at the right stop.





This adorable car illustrated by Melyssa is great to make a fun, every day card for family and friends! The larger car featured in this mini set was sized so that it could also be used with Leah (who can be seen in the Freeze The Moment stamp set).

Vroom is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 6 stamps and will sell for $7.

Love, love, LOVE this little convertible - isn't it darling??  I stamped the car in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers and then cut it out and popped it up over some fabulous Lime Twist Fly a Kite paper.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy and then added a few Island Lagoon rhinestones in the corner. 





These gorgeous tropical flowers were illustrated by Torico and will quickly become a favorite from your summer stamping collection! Use them to create beautiful custom designer paper, color in the line art images to use as a focal point for your project or pair them with a TSG sentiment stamp set for a card that can be given for any occasion.

Hibiscus is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7 

These flowers are absolulely stunning and I wanted to make a clean and simple card that shows them off.  I used a sheet of Splash paper from Echo Park and just popped up the flowers over the swirly flourish on the paper.  Super fun and easy to make!  I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from another TSG set called Garden of Life and I cut it out to make a little flag banner.  Just a few yellow pearls for some accent and it's done.  So cute!

Would you like a chance to win the Vroom / Hibiscus stamp sets  Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Vroom / Hibiscus 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 Forever stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (June 25th) during the Release Party Chat.

Next on the blog hop is the super fabulous Melyssa!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Karen
