Today the Trendsetters are showing off a brand new set called Chemistry. This set is so much fun and completely different from other love themed stamp sets that are in the stamping world! The great concept for this set came from last month's Release Party Chat challenge winner, Michele. What was supposed to be a new TSG Mini set quickly turned into a full sized 4x8 stamp set!

I'm feeling a little sketchy today. Why?? Because that is this week's TSG Challenge! Make sure you stop by the TSG Blog to check out this week's sketch. This is also the start of release week at There She Goes! Yipee!! You may find that the Trendsetters may giving you an early sneak peek of the new sets for their challenge cards ;)
For today's card, I used one of the new sets. This set is so much fun to color and paper piece! I am trying to go out of my comfort zone a bit when it comes to designer paper and colors as you can clearly tell by my use of green and teal lol! I haven't quite decided if I like it yet. It's growing on me....

Ink- Momento Tuxedo Black, SU ink for shading
Paper- Black, Very Vanilla, White, Various DP

I think my mojo is finally making an appearance and it's about time! This card was totally cased from this great card made by fellow Trendsetter Jodi. I changed the designer paper used, type of flower and placement, and used different images (but same stamp set Loads Of Fun).
I started out with a 4.25x4.25 Chocolate Chip card base then added layers of Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and DP by My Minds Eye (I think?). Before I adhered the DP to the CC layer, I stitched it using my sewing machine. The scallop layer was made using Nestabilities as was the white layer on top of it. I sponged the white layer with Creamy Caramel ink before adding my sentiment (in CC). The socks were stamped onto the DP with Momento Tuxedo Black then I colored in parts of it with my blender pen and CC ink. I cut them out and added them to the card with dimensionals. I'm not sure who makes the prima flowers, I got them from my friend Kelli. Aren't they pretty?? I threaded the button with brown embroidery thread before adhering it to the flowers.
Stamps- Loads Of Fun
Ink- Momento Tuxedo Black, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Paper- Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, DP by My Minds Eye (I think?)
Accessories- Prima flowers, Dimensionals, Blender Pen, Scallop Boarder Punch (SU), Sewing Machine, Buttons, Embroidery Thread

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you will join us tonight here on the TSG Forum for our Friday Night Chat! The chat officially begins at 7:00 PM Pacific Time (10 Eastern) but feel free to stop in at any time during the day to say hello :)
I have been meaning to share this card with you guys for a week now and I am finally getting it uploaded lol! I used the new set Garden Of Friends which is such a beautiful flower set. The white panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I stamped the larger Hydrangea flower and punched out before matting onto same color cardstock. Small flowers were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with blender pens and SU ink before adding to the larger circles with dimensionals. I also added a tiny rhinestone to each of the flowers.
Stamps- Garden Of Friends
Ink- Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper- Always Artichoke, white, rich razzleberry
Accessories- rhinestones, corner rounder, blender pen, dimensionals, embossing folder

Hello everyone! I can hardly believe that the week is nearly over. It's amazing how losing one day in the week really makes a difference! I did get a chance to stamp last night and I knew that I wanted to use the new set, Loads Of Fun. I have been wanting to paper piece the clothes on this laundry line as soon as I had these stamps in my hand but life took over and I just haven't had the chance till now. I love how the paper piecing really ties the whole card together.
Stamps- Loads Of Fun
Ink- Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper- DP by DCWV, White, Black, Garden Green
Accessories- Scallop border punch by SU, copic markers, dimensionals, ribbon, button, scallop corner punch

I am so sorry that it has been a week since I've posted! My mojo went on hiatus and I just haven't been able to stamp. I am going to make up for it this week though :)
For my card, I used last year's TSG Valentine's Day set- Roses & Chocolate. I love the large box of chocolates because they are perfect to use as the main image of a card! I colored my images with colored pencils and blended with OMS. I added dimensionals to the images before adding them to my card base.
Stamps- Roses & Chocolate
Ink- Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper- Ruby Red, White, Pretty in Pink, SU PIP DP
Accessories- SU Punches, Prisma Color Pencils, OMS, dimensionals

This week Jessie has a great challenge for us! We are to use at least 3 different types of embellishments. You can use as many of each as you would like but there has to be at least 3 different types. You can find out all the details here on the TSG Blog.
I'm not gonna lie, it took me a few hours to make this card. Wait, back up. It didn't take me a few hours to actually make this card but to come up with it. I had started two other cards before this one but they just weren't coming together for me so I decided to go nice and simple. I knew that I wanted to use this image and sentiment from the Loads Of Fun set and the ribbon/button/twine for my 3 embellishments. Sometimes it's just best to simple :)
Isn't that ribbon great? Michele sent it to me a TON of beautiful ribbon along with this gorgeous card. Talk about happy mail! Thanks Michele!!

Join us tonight here in the TSG Forum for the Friday Night Chat! It's a great time to hang out with friends and we love meeting new people!
It's been quite a few days since I've done any stamping so I was very happy that I was able to whip up two cards last night! For both of my cards I used the new Garden Of Friends stamp set and used my favorite go to layout. This one features squares and the other card that I made (that I will be sharing tomorrow) features the same layout but using circles instead.
I stamped the flowers on white cardstock and colored them in using a blender pen and SU inks before cutting them out to use on the small square panels. For the white layer, I stamped one of the leaves in the set in Always Artichoke ink then backed it with colored cardstock before matting it on black and adding it to the card base.
