TSG Sneak Peek - By the Sea

Are you all ready for another TSG blog hop? I thought so! This time we are hopping for sneak peeks and a chance to win this very stamp set - By the Sea! All you have to do is start hopping from the beginning from Chris's blog and follow along leaving a comment for everyone along the way :) If you have already started the hop and arrived here from the lovely and talented Jodi's blog then my dears, you are in the right place!



This card is from the brand new By the Sea set and is the perfect set for all of those seaside scenery cards that you are dying to make :) The set has realistic images and a variety of them to boot ;) I first water coloured the adirondack chair and palm tree with my tombow markers and then cut them out. I then die cute the shape with my nestabilities, used my actual die as a mask and then sponged in the "view". I added some pop dots and placed the images in the center and built up the rest of my card using some eyelets and some nautical-like twine.



Now that you have seen this sweet little note card you are off to the amazing Lisa's Blog to finish off the rest of the hop and then hit the finish line over at the There She Goes blog for your chance to win! Have a blast and thanks for stopping by today :)
