TSG Seasons Greetings Blog Hop!!

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Welcome to the third and final blog hop for the December There She Goes releases!

Edit: I just wanted to sneak this in and wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Today we're showcasing the absolutely beautiful set - Seasons Greetings! If you've hopped here from Piali's fabulous blog, then you're on the right path, but if you haven't and would like to play along with us, just hop on back to the TSG blog and start your journey there. Remember, you could win one of these awesome sets just by hopping with us today!

The designer of this gorgeous folk art set is none other than the talented Chris Dark! I have always been drawn to folk art and the simplicity of their crafts and Chris has done an amazing job bringing that style to this set. These wonderfully illustrated images are perfect for creating elegant as well as whimsical holiday cards for your friends and family!

Seasons Greetings is a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 13 stamps and will sell for $18.

Hands down, this is my favorite set of the release! I adore the folk art Santa's and the whimsical trees are so cute! I can't wait for you all to see the whole set!! For this card, I started out using this week's Mojo Sketch MOJO166, but I got a little sidetracked when it came to the ribbon across the bottom. I stamped the Peace sentiment (which looked like a signature, so that's why I put it there) on the bottom of the tag and left no room for the ribbon! Bugger. Oh well. I had good intentions. :)

I stamped Mr. Clause onto some Strathmore Bristol Vellum, then colored him up with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. Then I cut him out and added some snow glitter for some sparkle...just like the sentiments said to! To make the tag, I used some of Basic Grey's Kraft Basics paper, ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Labels One nestie and sponged the edges with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then I spritzed the whole thing with some Coffee Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels....for more sparkle, of course! Then I stamped that beautiful sentiment and adhered Mr. Clause. Oh, and I popped on an eyelet (remember those things?!) and threaded some ribbon through it for a more authentic tag! That yummy paper is from Girl's Paperie (which I got at Die Cuts R Us, but it's not available there anymore - sorry!). A pretty simple card, but somehow it took me forever to do last night! Why is that?!

Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs and to leave your name in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the TSG post so you can be in the random drawing to win your very own Seasons Greetings set! Oh, and don't forget about the Release Party on Saturday night, 9pm, in the TSG forum - it's a great way to kick of the holiday season...and wind down from the Thanksgiving festivities!
