There She Goes New Release Blog Hop-Day 2


It's day two of new release sneak peeks from There She Goes! Today we have two new sets to share with you...
These gorgeous tropical flowers were illustrated by Torico and will quickly becoming a favorite in your Summer stamping collection. Use them to create beautiful, custom designer paper, color in the line-art images to use as a focal point, or pair them with a TSG sentiment stamp set for an all-occasion card (as I've done here.)


For my card, I have used the sketch #223 for this week from Card Positioning Systems and some Splash collection paper from Echo Park. I colored my Hibiscus with Copic markers after looking up what colors they should be in Google images. I always look up any flowers that I'm not familiar with to see what their natural colors should be, so I used this photo as my coloring inspiration. The sentiment on my card is from the Sentimental Thank You stamp set from TSG.
And another set by Melyssa... this adorable car is great to make a fun, everyday card for family and friends. The larger card in this mini set was sized so that it could also be used with Leah (from the Freeze the Moment stamp set released last month.)

I chose a clean and simple design for my card with the car, using paper from the Wander collection from Basic Grey. I paper pieced the car with some of the paper (and later thought it looked like it had been through a hail storm!) The rest of the image was colored with Copic markers.

Would you like a chance to win either of these stamp sets? Here's what you need to do... go to each of the Trendsetter's Blogs and leave a comment on their Blog Hop Challenge posts for today. After you have finished checking out all the eye candy and have left some love, head over to the TSG blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly to receive their very own sets, and will be announced during the Release Party on Saturday, June 25th.

If you arrived on my blog from Melyssa's blog, then you're right on track and should continue on to our Guest Trendie, Theresa! If not, hop on back to the beginning at Angela's blog!

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!
