TSG Buckets of Love Blog Hop!!

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Hello and welcome to the second blog hop for the January There She Goes release!

If you've stopped here from Piali's fabulous blog, then you're a-ok! If you've just popped on over here from somewhere other than Piali's blog and this sounds like a hop you'd like to play along on, then head on over to the There She Goes blog to start your ride!

Today's sneak peek is all about that romantic day in February!

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, you will definitely want to invest in a stamp set that is not only whimsical, but also versatile. Staying true to Torico’s clean and magical illustration style, this set features a bucket and a barrel that can be filled with all sorts of goodies (and the sentiments are to die for as well)! You’ll enjoy hours of creating and coloring with this fabulous set!

Buckets of Love is a 4x6 stamp set that includes a total of 18 stamps and will sell for $15.

This set is awesome! It's the perfect set for those of us who like to give Valentines Day cards that aren't over-the-top lovey dovey. It's the right amount of sweet and playful. I used the wooden bucket and hearts stamps from the set as well as one of the sentiments that at first glance, wouldn't seem like a match, but it still works. I colored the image with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, added a bunch of glitter to the hearts and popped it off the nestie with the help of dimensionals.

Would you like a chance to win the "Buckets of Love" stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their "Buckets of Love" 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. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own "Buckets of Love" stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Jan. 1st) during the Release Party Chat.

Your next stop is.....TORICO!!
