Today is the last day of sneak peeks and we've got two more cute sets to show off! If you made your way here from Iwona's blog, you are on the right track :) If not, you may want to head over to the TSG Blog for all of the info about this Blog Hop Challenge as well as to find out how you can win both sets being shown today!!
“Good Times” is illustrated by Torico and is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 11 stamps and will sell for $15.
I love one of the sentiments included in the Good Times stamp set so much that I wanted to use it as my background for this card lol! It says 'Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.' One of the great things about this sentiment stamp is that when stamped in a 'staggered' fashion, the words line up to create one long line instead of the original 3 on the stamp! For my image, I stamped this cute little bunny onto white cardstock, colored with Prismacolor Pencils, blended with OMS before cutting out and adhering to the card base with dimensionals. I added a white layer to the inside of the card and stamped the sentiment inside as well.
“Flying By” is a 3X4 stamp set that includes a total of 5 stamps and will sell for $7.I love this cute mini set illustrated by Iwona! My friend Kelli gave me the idea of using real twine for the balloon strings and I couldn't wait to try it out! I first started with a simple card base out of Soft Sky cardstock with a layer of sky designer paper that was sponged, stitched and adhered on top. The image was stamped onto a separate piece of cardstock, colored with Prismacolor pencils, blended with OMS and cut out. I used a paper piercer to poke a few holes right under the line of her hand so that I could feed the twine through. I used a tiny bit of sticky tape on the wrist to tack down the twine and keep it in place. I then adhered the other end of the twine onto the balloons before adhering the entire image to the card base with dimensionals. I added a bit of Diamond Glaze to the balloons for extra dimension.
Funny story: While I was waiting for the balloons to dry, I put them in my light box with the lights turned on. While I had my back turned, Chloe came in and for some reason was drawn to touch the balloons to see if they were wet. Thankfully it was dry enough that no real damage happened and just a fingerprint was left. Then Matt came in and while I was in the midst of telling him what Chloe did, he poked the same balloon and put a bigger dent in it lol! I've decided to just stamp when the family is asleep from now on ;)
