Welcome to Day 1 of TSG Sneak Peeks! We are showcasing the new stamp set The Journey on our blog hop today! The hop started with Chris (the fabby illustrator for this set) and if you came here from her blog you are in the right place! If not... I highly recommend you scoot over to her blog. :)
This Asian inspired stamp set includes many beautiful images that you are going to love to use on a regular basis!
The Journey is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $24.
Would you like a chance to win the The Journey stamp set? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their The Journey Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog to 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 The Journey stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (July 31st) during the Release Party Chat.
For my card I went with a shappy sort of vintage look. Hmmm... need to work on that a bit. The main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The dish was stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock, colored, cut out and adhered over the main image with dimensionals. I added a touch of Dimensional Pearls to the center of each flower.
A little antiquing of the layers (including the crocheted ribbon), a bit of designer paper and some embossing finished the card. If I remade this card I would add stitching to each of the layers... I went through major withdrawal not adding any sewing or twine to this card! Hee hee. ;)
Now that you have seen my card... the next stop on the hop is the extremely talented Heather (I'm in awe of her cards - the color schemes are always perfect and bright)!
Check back tomorrow! There will be even more TSG goodness to share. :)
