Beautiful Day Sneak Peeks!

It's day one of the TSG Blog Hop Challenges where you will get sneak peeks from the Trendsetters showing off new stamp sets that will be released this Saturday :)

Did you make your way here from Iwona's Blog? If so, great! If not you may want to head on over to the TSG Blog for all of the details about this BHC as well as to find out how you can win the set being shown off today!!
The first new stamp set we are showing is called Beautiful Day and was illustrated by Di Carubia. I love that this set was created with the intention of being able to be used with the other stamp sets that Di illustrated for TSG including- The Fairy Best and Once Upon A Time!!
Beautiful Day is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 10 stamps and will sell for $15.
I actually used 8 of the 10 stamp sets included in this set for my sneak peek card. I love how you can create a multitude of different 'main images' simply by combining the images included in this set in different ways! And how much do you love the stone wall?? That is a background image that can be stamped over and over to create a wall that looks like it is just one piece!
There was a bit of masking involved to create my window scene but it was so easy that anyone can do it! All images were stamped with Momento tuxedo black ink, colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. The sentiment was stamped onto thin white card stock, trimmed, gently folded into a ribbon shape and sponged before being adhered to the card base.
Beautiful Day 
The next stop on this hop is Jessie, thanks for stopping by!
