TSG Sneak Peek - Believe in You


Welcome back to the last day of the There She Goes blog hop of sneak peeks. If you have arrived here from sweet miss Jodi's blog the you are right where you should be. If not then please start the hop at the beginning from Danielle's blog :D

Today I bring you a somewhat different kind of card made with stamps...



This cute little bus was actually made from one of the images and sentiments from the Believe in you set by Torico. Do you recognize the little school bus from the other sneak peeks? ;) To make this card, I created a template on the computer from the image and then proceeded to print it on the various colours of card stocks. I then cut out the pieces that I would need from each colour (ie: just the soft sky for the windows) and discarded the rest of the scraps. I then turned the pieces over and attacked them with my sponges and inks and then re-assembled them puzzle style to another print out of my template. I then used some paper punches to create the various lights on the bus and hand drew in the details with my black marker and white gel pen.



This card as it turns out is about the size of a note card and would not only make an adorable card for someone, but a beautiful addition to a back to school scrapbook layout :D So the next question that I know you are dying to ask is "are you giving out the template?". Well, the answer is no but miss Jessica Knutsen will be giving this cutie template away to anyone who purchases the Believe in You set and will be doing a Tips and Tricks post on how everything is assembled :D *Happy dance all around*

Would you like a chance to win the Believe In You stamp set? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Believe In You Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog to 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 Believe In You stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (the 28th) during the Release Party Chat.

Well ladies, thanks for coming by again today and now you are off to see what miss Lisa H has in store for you over at her blog. Happy hopping!
