TSG conGRADulations Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the first of four day of the the There She Goes Blog Hop Challenges where we get to give you some sneak peeks of the FOUR stamp sets that will be release Saturday night!


Melyssa is at it again, and just in time for all your graduation needs! This stamp set is PERFECT for ANY grad, young or old!! There is NO better way than to honor your favorite grad with a card, or scrapbook page, about their achievements!


                 

ConGRADulations is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 17 stamps and will sell for $15.00.

Here's my card:


How cute is he?!?!  I stamped the image on Blending Card by X-Press It with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the image with copics and then stamped it again.  I colored just the top of his cap, cut that out, and popped it up with foam dimensionals.  I paired the DSP from the Fancy Pants Designs Childish Things 6x6 paper pad withsome PTI kraft and black CS

Would you like to win the ConGRADulations stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, May 26th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

  16. Love your card -- I have a question. Did you use the "out of the box" technique to have your little fellow extend beyond the circle? If so, I want to know how you did it. When every I try that technique, I always get clumpy cut sections intruding into my circle (or whatever the die shape might be). If you did it some other way -- I'd love to know what it is! This card is just terrific!
