TSG Sneak Peek - Technology Bytes and Tulip



Whether you’re one of those individuals who suffers from technological meltdowns, or you’re one who has the world of technology all figured out; you’ll roll on the floor laughing when you get a look at this hilarious set illustrated by Jessica! She’s covered all of her bases, too…from cell phones to PCs…and she’s included sentiments that will crack up anyone that receives a card created with the set.

** I'm the first official stop on the blog hop today.  There will be a master list on the TSG blog if there is a break somewhere in the hop. 



My goodness.... this stamp set has so many funny sentiments... it'll keep you laughing for quite some time. Perfect for so many occasions and if you have some "technology" lovers in your life,  it's a must have.  For my card, I decided to take the cue from the DP (Bella Boulevard) and kept the coloring simple.

Technology Bytes is a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $18.

Would you like a chance to win the Technology Bytes stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Technology Bytes Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and 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 Technology Bytes stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar 26th) during the Release Party Chat.
 



Spring is in the air, and nothing says spring like tulips! This new set from Chris Dark showcases her flawless and realistic illustration of a single tulip and is paired with several sentiments that coordinate with the image. This set is a must-have for any flower lover!






I love flowers and tulips are one of my favorites. For some reason, this tulip screams vintage to me so I pulled out some lace trim, organdy ribbon, and some of my more elegant Nesties.  I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers and then sponged around the edge with some Wheat Versamagic Ink.  Each layer of DP was dry embossed with some of my Cuttlebug folders and then sponged with Close to Cocoa ink to make it look a little more vintage. 

Tulip is a 3x4 stamp set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for $7.

***** Now head on over to Ann's blog for your next bit of eye candy today!!!
