TSG Sneak Peek: Nature of Friendship

Any of my friends at Splitcoast will know that this set, called Nature of Friendship, will be one they will see me use often. Due to problems I have with my eyes, I am sometimes a bit 'foggy'. Because of this, I love silhouette images. They let me stamp on days when the old peepers aren't too clear for coloring. However, even if I didn't have these visual challenges, this new set by There She Goes Clear Stamps would be a favorite. There are 25, yes 25, stamps in this set. The versatility seems endless. I used 4 of the stamps in making my scene along with one of the sentiment stamps. I partnered this with some Cool Caribbean and Mustard cardstock along with a black and white designer paper froom Papertrey. (That black and white paper packet is simply fabulous!!!) I CB'd the horizontal center layer with Swiss Dots, and added some golden gemstone brads over some black circles. I must say I just love this set of stamps.

As a part of the release celebration you will each have a chance to win a free stamp set each release day. All you have to do is to visit each of the Trendsetters' blogs and leave a comment at each blog. Once you have done that, then go to Jessica's blog (she is the owner) where you will enter your name in the Mister Linky box. Then you will be eligible to win the set released on that day. You have until 12:00AM Saturday to get the Blog Hop Challenge comments in. Good luck!!!
