There She Goes Sneak Peeks | Day TWO

Good Morning!!  It's day two of sneak peeks for the April release of There She Goes Clear Stamps!!  The Trendsetters have amazing cards and projects for you this week, so be sure to hop around and check them out.




 I think we can all remember back to a time when we idolized our parents, most of us still do, and we wanted to grow up to be JUST like them. I mean, what girl HASN’T put on their mom’s shoes, and what boy hasn’t worn Dad’s tie? Just in time for Mother and Father’s Day, Torico has illustrated the CUTEST dress up set I have EVER seen!!

When I Grow Up is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 15 stamps and will sell for $15.00.





I LOVED coloring this sweet little boy, in his daddy's shoes, shirt, and tie.  What a super cute image for Father's Day!!  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with Copic markers.  I really wanted to keep his shirt white, so I just added some E30 around the outside edges of the shirt to make it stand out more from the white cardstock behind him.  The papers are A Boy's Life from Echo Park and of course, I added some zigzag stitching in a few spots on the edges of the panels. 

Would you like to win the new When I Grow Up stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) 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 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, March 31st with the winner being announced during the release party chat.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
Karen
