Di has created another gorgeous addition to her wildly popular Build a Scene stamp sets. With stone and ivy walls, gorgeous little puppies and kitties, and uplifting, heart-felt sentiments, this stamp set is fabulous alone or paired with any of the other Designs by Di stamp sets.

Follow Your Bliss is a 4x6 sized stamp set that includes 19 images and will sell for $15.


I am loving these build a scene stamp sets!  I started by stamping the rock wall (which includes the post on the left) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then masked it and stamped the right post as well as the 2 adorable little bunnies.  I used lots and lots of Copics to color this image in and I used Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch 18 for the layout.  The papers are a 6x6 pad from Lost & Found Rosy by My Mind's Eye.

***********************************************************



Acorns, leaves, pumpkins, gingerbreads are just some of the gorgeous images added to the “Buckets of Love-Holiday Additions” stamp set. Coordinate the bountiful holiday images with the different buckets from “Buckets of Love” to create gorgeous fall and winter holiday décor. Torico’s additional sentiments will be sure to finish off your creation perfectly!

BOL Holiday Additions is a 4x4 sized stamp set that includes 14 images and will sell for $10.

This set is absolutely delicious!!  I adore this cute little set and wanted to create a little Christmas card using the gingerbread man and candy cane.  I created my own background paper by stamping the images in Memento Tuxedo Black on kraft cardstock in an alternating pattern.  I popped the same images up on foam tape after coloring them with Copics and let them steal the show.  Such a fun and simple card! The layout is FTL158 from Clean & Simple Stamping, although I added a little banner layer for my sentiment. 

Would you like to win the Follow Your Bliss and BOL Holiday Additions Stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in this blog hop challenge and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Follow Your Bliss / BOL Holiday Additions Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday September 24th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Good luck!
