TSG Sneak Peek - It's a Jungle out there


It's our final day of sneak peeks for this month's TSG release and it's another fantastic one.

You LOVED her Zoo-pendous set, and well, everything else she has created, but I REALLY think Melyssa has KNOCKED this one out of the park!! Whether making a card for a boy or girl, man or woman, or scrapbooking your latest trip to the zoo, there is something in her new Jungle Out There set for you!! Full of the CUTEST animals, and most HILARIOUS sentiments, what’s NOT to love??

I decided to go clean and simple with this card using the current Fall to Layout.  I have colored the lion using Prismacolor pencils and the Gamsol technique.  I'm really loving the look of the pencils and will keep practicing. The sentiments that come with this set are fantastic!! Jeanie Whitmer (one of my stamping idols) has her "That's Krafty Thursday" challenge going on so I'm entering my card into her challenge.
 Jungle Out There is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

TSG Sneak Peek - When I grow up...

WOW!! Day 2 of this month's TSG sneak peeks and the DT has been rocking it if I do say so myself. 

I think we can all remember back to a time when we idolized our parents, most of us still do, and we wanted to grow up to be JUST like them. I mean, what girl HASN’T put on their mom’s shoes, and what boy hasn’t worn Dad’s tie? Just in time for Mother and Father’s Day, Torico has illustrated the CUTEST dress up set I have EVER seen!!

Isn't she just too stinkin' adorable?? OMGoodness!!! Love her!!! I used to love dressing up in my mom's heels so this image stole my heart.  I've colored it with my newly acquired Prismacolor pencils and the gamsol technique.  It's definitely different than using my Tombows.  I've used DP from My Mind's Eye (a pack released last year and I have scraps left - LOL).  I also added some Charcoal Black Twinery Twine that I purchased at Ribbon Carousel.
When I Grow Up is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 15 stamps and will sell for $15.00.

TSG Sneak Peek - Ruh-roh....

Can you believe it's already time again for this month's TSG release? It's another great one I can tell you that!!!

We know you love them, and we love them too, but this month’s Ruh-Roh set, is slowly becoming one of my FAVORITES!  Torico has illustrated the most ADORABLE mini set, and for all you dog lovers out there, yep, there’s a puppy in this one, and he is up to no good!! With several stamps to create a scene, and 5 adorable sentiments, this set is a must have for anyone who has EVER had to say they or sorry…..and I doubt that excludes ANYONE!!!


For this month's release, I stepped away from my Tombow Markers if you can believe it and brought out my new Prismacolor pencils for a test drive. And I'm loving them!!! I'm still learning how to do the Gamsol technique but I love how different they are than my Tombow Markers.  I kept my layout really simple to make sure the image and this funny sentiment is the main focus.  When I taught down in NC, "My bad" is something I heard on a daily basis from my students.  So of course as soon as I saw the sentiment, I knew I HAD to use it.  LOL!!!

Ruh-roh is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7.00.

TSG Blog Hop Challenge - Autumn Mosaic



One of the greatest things about stamping is to combine different stamp sets to create unique settings and scenes. Chris’s beautiful illustrations are perfect for this technique and I’m happy to say that she has done it again with this new set called Autumn Mosaic. This wonderful fall themed stamp set includes many different images that can be combined to create a scene or wonderful to use as a solitary focal point for your cards.

You should have arrived here from the There She Goes blog




I had fun with this card - making something a little different than my norm - a little vintagey yet clean and simple look to it.  The DP is from Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey - I can't believe how well these DP's matched.  The image has been colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I'm still learning the technique so go gentle on me k?

Autumn Mosaic is a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 21 stamps and will sell for $18.

TSG Blog Hop Challenge - Cattitude


I'm so excited!!!! My first Blog Hop Challenge with There She Goes!!! I'm the first official stop on the blog hop today (after the TSG Blog).  If there is a break in the hop at all, you find the master list at There She Goes

Puppy Love was a big hit with all of you dog lovers out there and now Torico is back with a little something for the cat lovers! This adorable cat themed set includes felines that range from cute to sassy as well as the perfect sentiments to accompany them.






So we all know how much I heart my Tombow Markers and that I don't know what I'd do without them... well this month... I had to do without them.  For the release this month, we had to work with digital stamps and needless to say I had never worked with them before. Don't fret!!!!  You'll be getting the real deal!!!!  Let's just say that Tombow Markers and Digital stamps don't work all that well together so I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol - a technique I have not done in a few years and had only tried once before.  I kinda like the look of it!!! Although I have learned I'll need to invest in better blending stumps and a lot more practice...  

Cattitude is a 4x6 stamp set that includes a total of 24 stamps and will sell for $15.

Would you like a chance to win the Cattitude stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Cattitude 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.
