It's Day 2 of the There She Goes September Release Sneak Peeks! Are you ready for more?!
Torico’s new set this month is well, it’s a GRAND SLAM!! America’s favorite past time has been brought to life with Torico’s fabulous style, and cutesy whimsical characters!! For the baseball enthusiast to the mom/dad yelling in the stands, this set is PERFECT for the baseball lover in your life! Can you imagine the scrapbooking possibilities!
Swing Big is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 16 stamps and will sell for $15.00.
Oh, how I could have used this set back in at the start of summer! My little girl played Spring baseball and we were scrambling at the last minute to do something for the coach. We ended up getting all the kids to sign a baseball but a card using this set would have been so great!
To make this card I colored the future Hall Of Famer with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. Then I cut him out with my precision scissors. The background was made using Rosies Roadshow Cloud Template and then I masked off the dirt with a Post It note ripped in half, and sponged it with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then it was matted with white and dark brown cardstock. The papers I used a scraps from Imaginence, Cosmo Cricket and Scenic Route. Then I finished the whole thing off with some jute twine and a PTI button in dark brown. The layout is my take on this week's Retro Sketch #25. I can feel a scrapbook page coming on soon with all the photos I took of Syd playing this Spring!
