The Texting Tulip



Ok, so the title of the post might be a little bit misleading but it caught your attention didn't it ;) Welcome back to day two of the There She Goes blog hop! If you have arrived here form Miss Karen's blog then you are exactly where you should be, if not then please start back at the TSG blog :)

Today I have two sets to showcase and the first one up for show is by Chris Dark and is called Tulip. It's a 3x4 stamp set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for $7 and it's just perfect for Spring :D




This card was made with this month's SFYTT challenge over at the iheart2stamp.blog. The tulip was water coloured with tombows and then cut out an popped up on the sketch backdrop.



The second one that I have to show you is called Technology Bytes. It's a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $18 and was illustrated by our fearless leader Jessica Knustsen. I might also add that this set is chalked full of witty sentiments ;)


This card was made for the TSG99 challenge and the challenge was to stand out from the background - or stamping Jessica Knutsen style :) I water coloured the cell phone and then coated it with a thick layer of glossy accents to make it shine. I then popped it up on my one layer sponged background and ta da..it was done. Easy Peasy!

Would you like a chance to win the Tulip/Technology Bytes stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Tulip/Technology Bytes 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 Tulip/Technology Bytes stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar 26th) during the Release Party Chat.

Thanks for coming by these parts and don't forget to swing on back here tomorrow for the last day of the sneak peeks :) Now have fun and hop on over to Miss Marisa's blog :D
