TSG Sneak Peek - Perk Up



I'm such a sucker for anything coffee related so when Jessica sent the sets we'd be releasing this month, I did a little happy dance!! There She Goes really knows how to make amazing sets!!

Friendship and coffee are a good blend to send greetings near and far. Torico has created a darling set to perk up the one “mug” you’ve been missing. An absolute must for those sweets and treats without all the calories!

I had so much fun with this card!!! I started out using fellow Trendsetter Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and used fun DP from Fancy Pants Design and Bella Blvd.   I have watercolored the image with Tombow Markers and then sponged the edge of the main panel with Versamagic Wheat Ink.  The White Ruffle edge ribbon and black Jute Twine are both from the Ribbon Carousel.  I also made this card for Jeanie Whitmer's current "That's Krafty Thursday" challenge.
Perk Up! is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 36 stamps and will sell for $18.00.
Would you like to win the new Perk Up! stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday January 28th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
