ABC...it's easy as 123...

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!!! Welcome to Day #2 of the There She Goes sneak peeks!!! If you came here by way of the wonderful Joanne, perfect! If not, please start the blog hop at Jessica's blog so you don't miss any of the fabulousness!!!

The set the Trendsetters are peaking today is called A-Z and 123, and it is a set of 70 stamps...yes, 70 stamps!!! Totally AWESOME!!!!

My stamp collection was lacking a fabulous alphabet set, so I am thrilled about this new set!!! I knew I wanted to make a set of cards with my daughter's monogram, and so I made a set of 3X3 Note Cards (just one is pictured here) as well as a box to store them in (I used this tutorial on SCS and it was SUPER easy!!!).

I wanted a crisp clean look, so I went with a combination of White and Purely Pomegranate!! I am super happy with how this came out, and it was VERY easy to do!! There She Goes is also releasing grid line acrylic blocks!!! Wow! What a difference they make! I whipped this up in no time at all!!!

For my 3X3 cards, I started by first stamping the monogram minus the C in the middle. After I stamped the m, the circle and the j, I went back and stamped the C in Purely Pomgranate. I LOVE the look of this!!! I then ran the card through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and added a bow of Purely Pomgranate Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. I added a bottom row of Purely Pomegranate that I punched with my Scallop Edge Punch.

The box that houses my cards is quite deep, so I was able to make 10 cards to put in the box! Super cute, super easy and I think this would make a sweet gift!!!

Make sure to head on over to the uber-fabu Julie Lacey for the next stop on the hop!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!!
