Confidential/Garden of Life Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks! Today the Trendsetters will be showing you samples made with two new stamp sets (to be released Saturday evening after the release party chat) Confidential and Garden Of Life. Not only are you going to get to enjoy lots of eye candy by participating in the blog hop today, but you will also have the opportunity to win both of the sets being shown off!

Tonight's hop started at the There She Goes Blog so if you haven't been there, go there now!! If you are here now, you should have come from Jessica's Blog..isn't she the BEST!!

Have a bad day at the office? Or maybe you have a bad office every day? ;) If either of these pertains to your situation, you will definitely enjoy this tongue-and-cheek set illustrated by Jessica…and anyone would be happy to receive a creation using this hilarious set!

Confidential is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 12 stamps and will sell for $15.

For my first card, I started with the main image from the new Confidential set. She was stamped on an X-Press It Blending card, and then colored with my Copics. After coloring her, I layered her with Taken With Teal, So Saffron(SU), and Hot Fudge(MFT). My paper is from the My Mind's Eye, Stella and Rose-Gertie line. My ribbon is from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's. I used the Bracket Edge Die-namic, as well.
Once again Chris Dark has amazed us with a whimsical and spring-inspired stamp set. Who wouldn’t want to be outside enjoying the scenes of spring as everything comes to life? This set is a celebration of exactly that!

Garden of Life is a 3X4 stamp set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7.

For my next card, I stamped the flower on an X-Press It Blending card. I then colored it with my Copics, drew(not very well, but hey) in some grass, and then layered it with Lemon Drop and Hot Fudge card stock(MFT). My ribbons are both from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's. I followed a sketch that I found on the Stampin' When I Can blog, as well. Again, I used the same MME paper pack...I am in LOVE with their paper right now.
