TSG Little Moments Blog Hop!!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Welcome to the second and last blog hop of the There She Goes January Releases!

Warm fuzzy moments and life’s little memories are genuinely captured by Torico in this new Little Moments set. Gazing through the window watching the snow fall, special moments with brothers and sisters or wonderful thoughts of that one special grandmother that make your heart warm are all here. There’s no better
way to send a loving card or create a scrapbook page to capture these glorious moments than to use this fabulous new stamp set.

Little Moments is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 12 stamps $24.

There are some classic 'Torico' images in this set (which we all love to bits!) but I decided to use some of the images that doesn't immediately scream her name, but I love it just as much!

We haven't had much of a white Christmas here in New England (and that's A-OK!) but one of my favorite things about this area is that when the snow falls, it feels like I'm living in a snow globe! And usually I stop to watch that amazing view. It's my little moment. :)

I wanted to make the scene stand out, so I created a warm and cosy card with lots of dark colors so the snow and image would stand out. So I picked out some papers from Basic Grey's Jovial Collection, cut the shapes I needed, sponged the edges with Distress Inks and machine stitched it to some black cardstock. Then I colored up the image with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush. Once that was dry, I cut it out with my precision scissors, popped it on dimensionals and added some glaze and sparkles with my Sakura pens. Lastly, I turned one of the beautiful sentiments in the set into a banner and pinned it to the card with a button from PTI and some jute button twine. And that's it - a warm and cosy card for a special friend!



Would you like to win the new Little Moments stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday December 31st with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
