TSG Gobble and In Stitches Blog Hop!

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Welcome to the second blog hop for the November There She Goes releases!

Today the Jessica and us Trendsetters are showcasing the awesome sets Gobble! and In Stitches by the uber talented illustrator, Torico!! If you've hopped here from Piali's fabulous blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to play along with us, just hop on back to the TSG blog and start your ride there. Remember, you could win one of these sets just by hopping with us today!

Just in the time for Thanksgiving! Torico has illustrated this fun and adorable Turkey that has a lot to say ;) Not only can he hold a sign designed to say 7 different sayings but he also has his glass and fork ready just in time for the big dinner.

Gobble is a 3x4 mini stamp set that includes a total of 13 of stamps and will sell for $7.


This set is awesome!! It has a bunch of sentiments and this fat and juicy bird! Hehehe I couldn't decide which sentiment was my favorite, so I used as many as I could get on this card! :) Couldn't resist adding some Glossy Accents to their eyes too. The sketch is this week's CPS #190 rotated 180 degrees. Guess what a large group of turkeys is called? A rafter! I would have never guessed that one!


One of the biggest trends in stamping right now is using a sewing machine to stitch directly onto your hand stamped cards. This is one of my favorite techniques, but if it's not yours but you love the look - no worries! TSG is here with a quick and easy way to get that stitched look you love! This mini set not only has some beautiful silhouette border images but it also includes two styles of stitching that will give you that stitched look you are after.

In Stitches is a 2x6 stamp set that includes a total of 7 of stamps and will sell for $7.

I tend to sew on all my cards but it's so refreshing to skip this step and just stamp the stitches instead! I used four of the stamps from this set (can you see where they are?) and Cosmo Cricket's 'Material Girl' paper collection was the perfect paper for this happy card! Love the short, but sweet sentiment! I used Holly's TSG78 sketch for the layout and substituted the oval element for the paper flower.

I know you're loving all the sneak peeks, right? This team ROCKS! Remember to leave a comment on each of the blogs today to be in the running to win yourself one of these sets! Thanks so much for hanging out with me today!! and I hope to see you all hopping along with us tomorrow for our final sneak peek! :)

I knew you'd have a stunning creation for us to see oh Master colorist, and you actually had TWO - HOW do you have the time! They both look great. Cool incorporation of that DP in the Stitches sample.
