...Poppies TSG Blog Hop

Verve Day Thursday Will Be Moving To Sunday, March 28th, For This Week!

Welcome to Day Three of the TSG April Release Preview and Blog Hop! If you've made it here from Lisa's Blog you are in the right place...if not, you need to head back to the TSG Blog to get started! I can’t even tell you how excited I am about showing you guys today’s sneak peek! Almost since the very beginning of TSG, Jessica has wanted to create a life-like poppy set to add to the TSG stamp line. The wait is now over, my friends...I'd like to introduce you to the new set, "Poppies"! Our wonderful new TSG Illustrator, Chris Dark has created some gorgeous poppy images that you are going to LOVE! This beautiful set also includes 3 butterflies of various sizes and sentiments that are great for everyday cards.

Would you like a chance to win the Poppies stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Poppies Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Poppies Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Poppies stamp set! The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar. 27) during the Release Party Chat.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow with another TGF Farm Fresh Friday! Now it's time for you to hop on over to Pam's Blog! Until later...

Hi Mercy~

What a fab idea! I love how you stamped the background. The kraft, black and red colors are so irresistable! Your coloring of the poppies is wonderful. The shading is incredible! The paper piercing is a nice way to bring a bit more black through the vanilla paper! Gorgeous!
