Oh Snap Blog Hop Challenge

***Blogger is experiencing some issues, which may cause some of the designer's posts to go up late. We will get them up as SOON as we can! Thank you ahead of time for your patience!!***

Tonight is our fourth and final night of new release peeks, and we are finishing up with a set that is sure to appeal to all the cardmaking, scrapbooking, camera wielding stampers out there!!

Torico’s final set this month is SURE to impress the camera hound in us all! Photography is a part of everyday life, and a growing hobby for many, and how much more FUN would it be if you had a camera like one of THESE??!! A picture truly is worth a 1000 words, and with summer vacations, graduations, and well, EVERYTHING, coming up, what a PERFECT set for the photographer in us all.  Full of cute sayings, and TONS of images to create the PERFECT card/scrapbook page/project, you really can’t go wrong!!

Oh Snap is a 6x8 set that includes 33 stamps, and will sell for $24.

For my card tonight, I colored one of the SUPER cute cameras from this set with my Copics, then cut it out with my Oval Stax Die-namics. I layered it with the Open Scalloped Oval Doily Duo Die-namics in Jellybean Green. My ribbon is Bubblegum from MFT, and I used Bubblegum, Sweet Tooth, Jellybean Green, and Baja Breeze cardstock. My paper is from the MME Stella&Rose Hazel pad. 

Would you like to win the new Oh Snap stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges 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, April 28th, with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

Besides using the new CS about Art set, I used the ADORABLE new Artist Palette and Brush Die-namics. There are several different shaped blobs for cutting out the paint splotches, so I used Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple, Night of Navy, Grape Jelly, and Black Licorice. My brush was cut out twice, once with Black Licorice, and once with Fossil. I pieced the brush together to make it look like a brush with a handle. My paper is the MME On the Bright Side Line, which I LOVE! I used Sweet Tooth Grosgrain, and some Maraschino Twine, as well. My brads are from Michael's. For the border on the side, I used the new Squiggle Border Die-namics...what a TON of fun this month's die-namics are!! 

My card is also for this week's new iSpy sketch challenge, which you can find on the iSpy blog!! It is SO much fun!!

For the inside, I used the same supplies!

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for tonight!!  Now, head on off to Kim's Blog for a full list of designer's   participating today!
