TSG Blog Hop Challenge - Merry Christ-moose/Nice Rack/Nordic Borders

November 29, 2013

It's final day of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges. Today's sets were illustrated by me with the help of the Trendsetters!! The ideas for making a moose themed stamp set and a Nordic pattern stamps came from a chat we had on Facebook a few months ago. Then, we went to a little bit naughty side (as always, LOL) and came up with a sentiment set called Nice Rack.


Merry Christ-moose is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 18 stamps and will sell for $18. It will be released on Saturday, November 30th at 11pmEST.

Nice Rack is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $9. It will be released on Saturday, November 30th at 11pmEST.

Nordic Borders is a 2x6 set that includes a total of 3 stamps and will see for $3. It will be released on Saturday, November 30th at 11pmEST.


I made a tall card (3.5"x 6.0") for today. The image was colored with Copics and was combined with some papers from Christmas Wishes paper pad (MME). The sentiment is from Nice Rack set. I added a couple of die cut snowflakes and a button with some jute twine.

November 28, 2013

Welcome to Day 3 of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges!
I know that you loved the first stamp set from Danielle Lounds released last month.;) Today we are sneak peeking her second set, "Be Merry"!



Our second set from new illustrator Danielle Lounds find’s us celebrating the holidays with her unique style of combining handwritten sentiments, with super cute images. I love that the words can be colored, and the tag image will be perfect for cards, and gift giving.

Be Merry is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $18.00. It will be released on Saturday, November 30th at 11pmEST.


Don't you love this whimsical image?;) I colored it with Copics as usual and used a gold & a red sparkling glitter pen to decorate the tree. The patterned papers are from Winter Wonderland paper pad (MME). The gold ribbon was dug out from my old ribbon stash. (lol)

TSG Blog Hop Challenge - 'Tis the Season

November 27, 2013

This month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges began yesterday, and I'm sorry that I couldn't participate in Day 1 of the challenges.
Today we are showing you a new set from Wendy Leach, that is called "'Tis the Season"!


A full set of fun from artist Wendy Leach, features our favorite sock goblin, but lots of other winter accessories to go along with it! This whimsical and fun holiday set is sure to be a favorite.

Tis the Season is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 12 stamps and will sell for $24. It will be released on Saturday, November 30th at 11pmEST.


It was hard to decide what image I would work with for today's card, because ALL the images in this set are so very cute!!!


I colored the snowman image with Copics. One of the parts I love about Wendy's illustrations is that they are easy to shade.:) I paired him with a birch wood background, which was cut out using a Birch Tree cutting plate (Taylored Expressions), and added some falling snow using a white gel pen. Some Frosted Lace Stickles were added for the shining ground.

TSG235 - Christmas Card Set

November 25, 2013

This weeks TSG Challenge (TSG235) is to make a set of Christmas cards using the same supplies, but you must make three or more!


I made three cards using Warmest Wishes stamp set along with a matching die. I kept the same design, just changed color schemes. The yellow one and the blue one are not ordinary for Christmas cards, but I'm happy with these!:)




Please refer to the supplies list below to see what colors I used on each card.

Visit the TSG blog for more info about the challenge and more inspiration from the other Trendsetters!

Thank you for stopping by.
