Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!
Today is the second day of previews for the latest and greatest There She Goes release, and I am SO excited to share this AMAZING new set with you, Lighten Up!
Did you make your way here from my super fab BSF Jessie's Blog? If so, you are right on track! If not, please start the hop at the There She Goes Blog so you don't miss a thing!
Today's set, Lighten Up, was illustrated by the oh so amazing Torico. I seriously LOVE every set she has designed, and this set is certainly no exception!
I had SO much fun creating this card! This set is SO adorable and it features a total of 20 stamps and will set for only $15.00. There are several choices of lamp shades and lamp bases, so you can mix and match for any style you want! I tried to go with a stained glass kind of look for my card, so I paper pieced the lampshade to achieve this look.
I started with the sketch from this week's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG104. LOVE this sketch, although you will notice that my sentimentt panel was moved down a bit on my sample. The patterned paper is all from Hello Luscious from Basic Grey. I colored the lamp base with Copic Markers, and as I mentioned above, paper pieced the shadw with the same patterned paper. I cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities.
The scalloped border was created with the Die-Namics Simply Scallops Die, and I added a big bow of delish seam binding (that just arrived today...woot!) along with a sweet stick pin. This anchors my sentiment flag, which reads, "Look on the bright side". I love this sentiment and I love the two different fonts. Some machine stitching all around finishes this one off.
