There She Goes Sneak Peeks | Day ONE

Good Morning!!  It's the first day of sneak peeks for the June 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 see them all.




Melyssa is at it again, and just in time for all your graduation needs! This stamp set is PERFECT for ANY grad, young or old!! There is NO better way than to honor your favorite grad with a card, or scrapbook page, honoring their achievements!

ConGRADulations is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 17 stamps and will sell for $15.00.







It is graduation season around here (as it is everywhere) and my youngest just had her preschool graduation this past Friday.  There isn't anything cuter than 5-year-olds dressed up in construction paper caps and yarn tassels.  So precious!  I made this card for her.

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers.  I think I'm finally getting the hang of coloring grass - yippee!  The layout is MOJO241 and the papers are new in my house - On the Sunny Side 6x6 from My Mind's Eye.  LOVE this one.  What a sweet little girl, don't you think?

Would you like to win the new ConGRADulations 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, May 26th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

Karen

  3. Such a sweet card. Love the copic coloring on the image and also your placement of the sentiment. I tend to stick to putting the sentiment along the bottom of the card for some reason.
