Dadisms Sneak Peek


Today is the last day of the TSG Blog Hop Challenges where you have a chance to win the stamp set being previewed today by the Trendsetters! All you have to do is go to each of the participating Trendsetters blogs and comment on their Dadisms sneak peek post. After you have commented on everyone's blog, hop back over to the TSG Blog where you can enter your name into the Mister Linky located at the bottom of the post.
If you have made your way here from Holly's Blog, you are right on track! If not, you may want to head over to the TSG Blog to get all of the details about the Blog Hop Challenges and what you need to do to have a chance to win the stamp set that is being previewed today! :)
For those of you that loved Domestic Goddess, Dadisms is going to be right up your alley! This fun dad set includes all of the fun saying that we grew up with our father's telling us :)

Dadisms is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 31 stamps and will sell for $24.

I'm sure that you guys were expecting an elaborately detailed card today like I have done for the last two previews but I decided to mix it up a bit and go a little clean and simple ;) The image was stamped in Versamark and embossed in black (this was before I discovered that I could watercolor by simply stamping my image in Versafine black!) then watercolored and cut out. For the background, I stamped the larger background stamp that includes a ton of different 'Dadisms'. I also stamped the dadisms background onto white cardstock and cut out the sentiment I wanted to use and added it to the Kraft card base using dimensionals. The watercolored image was also added to the card base using dimensionals.

And here is another fun Tips & Tricks sheet showing you how to mask dad's hand so that he can hold a variety of different objects that are included in this set!

Next on the hop is my girl Jessie and you are going to love the awesome card she made using this set!
