Let the Previews Begin!!

Hey everyone and WELCOME!! It is time for this month's New Release Blog Hop Challenges from There She Goes, and tonight we have THREE sets to show you, so let's get to it!!



What images come to mind when you hear sleigh bells ringing? Santa and his eight tiny reindeer of course! Torico has illustrated the perfect mini set to create your winter wonderland scene. This is the perfect set to create holiday tags, cards, and gift boxes. A complete must have.



Hohoho is a 3x4 mini-set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7.



Just when you thought the World’s Best & Die stamp set couldn’t get any better…here comes another fabulous set illustrated by Melyssa Connolly to add snowmen, reindeer, and angels on the tails of your ribbon or flowers of the World’s Best stamp set. What a great set this will be to dress up a holiday bottle of cheer!



Holiday Ribbons is a 2x3 mini-set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $4.



Holidays are not complete without all the wishes of the seasons. Jessica has illustrated a beautiful set of timeless sentiments so that you’ll never be at a loss for words. This mini set would complement the collection of holiday stamps sets released this month!



Wishing You is a 3x4 mini-set that includes a total of 6 stamps and will sell for $7.

Would you like to win the new Hohoho, Holiday Ribbons, and Wishing You stamp sets? 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 November 26th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.



For my first card, I used the Holiday Ribbons set. I cut out my ribbons using the World's Best Die, and then stamped my images on them. I colored those with my Copics, and strung them together using some Blossom and Maraschino twine. I then used my Icicle Die-namics from MFT to create my Sno Cone border, which was layered with some Be Merry MME paper. My sentiment is from the Penguin Pals set. I used brads from Michael's, and ribbon from both MFT and SU. For my sentiment panel, I used the First Place Award Die-namics, a PTI button, and a Heidi Swapp snowflake.



For my next card, I stamped the Wishing You sentiment with Rich Cocoa ink on Sweet Tooth cardstock. I then layered it, using my Nesties, with Hot Fudge. I paired it with some Signature Christmas paper. My scallops were made using the Simply Scalloped Large Die-namics. I used Michael's brads, and some Walnut Seam Binding and Jute Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. My snowflake was made with the MFT Snowflake Die-namics, and I used a creative express spiral clip.



For the inside, I stamped the rest of the sentiment.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!! Be sure to check out the other girls, and leave comments! You never know whhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifo it will be!!
