TSG Sneak Peak: You're So Punny...AND MORE BLOG CANDY!


Ok, I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE this soon to be released set from There She Goes! It is called "You're So Punny" and it has the cutest images and sentiments! This set was one that was inspired by the very talented Holly McMillen (aka: Toy on SCS)! Isn't Mr. Squirrel just adorable? I think he would work perfectly on a masculine or little boy card! In fact, I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day! I just love how versatile it really is! :D Anyway, this set will be released on Sunday, along with two others, and to kick off this new release we will be having a rockin' party over at Paper Craft Planet in the There She Goes forum from 7-9 p.m. Pacific Time. At that time, Jessica will reveal all three sets and announce the winner for the challenge that she has going on this week. What is the challenge you ask? Well let me tell you! :D This month's challenge is all about GOING DIMENSIONAL! That means you need to include dimensionals on your card in some form or another! Make sure you use your There She Goes stamps in order to be eligible though! Stop by Jessica's blog to get all of the details! Now of course this was not difficult for me since I can hardly make a card WITHOUT them! Haha! In fact, I used 3 different sizes of dimensionals on this card (got the idea from Jessica)! Make sure when you complete the challenge, that you upload it to SCS with the keyword TSG03. If your name is picked, you will then win one of the newly released sets! How cool is that??? :) But wait! There is more! Leave me a comment on this post and I will randomly select a winner who will receive a There She Goes mini set! The winner will be announced at the release party at Paper Craft Planet on Saturday night! So...two chances at blog candy! Can't beat that! :D Well, before I get to the details of the card, I also want to give a shout out to Julie Lacey who is this month's There She Goes guest designer! Welcome Julie! :D You will also want to stop by the other TSG Design Team members' blogs so that you can see some more sneak peeks!

Anyway, for the details on my card, I saw Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge yesterday and decided to play with it! I am really starting to enjoy making square cards! I paired Mr. Squirrel with some My Mind's Eye dp. I just love the soft colors in this piece of paper. I think the pattern is just fantastic too. I layered it on Very Vanilla and Close to Cocoa card stock. I also popped up Mr. Squirrel on a piece of Sage Shadow card stock. I colored him with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. I sponged down all of my sides with my Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink and sponge daubers. For my final touch I added 6 vintage brads to the top and side of my card!

I really hope that you enjoyed today's post! Make sure you stop by tomorrow morning for another sneak peek! I really love tomorrow's set too! :D

Also, don't forget about the sketch challenge and blog candy opportunity from this post!

OMGosh, so super cute!!

Megan said...

This is ADORABLE!!! I wonder what the rest of the stamps look like--I love new releases.

Okay, I may be a little slow, but I have a question. When you say you used three different sizes of dimensionals--does that mean thickness? I've noticed different brands offer different thickness and I like to use different ones on different projects. OR do you mean diameter or length???

Thanks for the chance for some candy, Steph

I saw this squirrel on Jessica's blog and fell in love. I LOVE your card and how you used him. I agree that he is perfect for a boy/masculine card which so few stamps are.

Thank you for the chance to win. I do not have any TSG stamps yet so this is an AWESOME prize.
