TSG Blog Hop--Day 1--Aquaholic

Thoughts and prayers with the people of Oklahoma.


     Are you ready for summer?  Well our first day of new release sneak peeks from There She Goes Clear Stamps starts with some super cute water themed stamps from Melyssa Connolly.


Aquaholic is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 26 stamps and will sell for $24.00.
This set will be available for purchase at 11pmEST on Saturday, May 25th.


     For my card I've used three of the images and a sentiment from the set.  I used a card base of navy blue and then layered some water patterned DP up on pop dots.  I had cut the two circles with my Nesties and then cut the holes in the mat a little larger.  The circles themselves are glued down to the base of the card.  The diver and critters are also popped up on foam.  I know this is VERY CAS but the stamps are so cute and I am over the moon with how the bubbles turned out.  The larger ones are dew drops and then I added some smaller ones with Glossy Accents.  There's some more GA on the fish eyes, jelly fish spots and the goggles.  Fun huh!
     Would you like to win the new Aquaholic 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 25th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
