TSG Sneak Peek Blog Hop!!

Hello everyone~
It's a time for There She Goes Sneak Peek Blog Hop!! We have 2 new fabulous sets available on Sunday, May 31st. I'm excited to show you the sneak peek for the both of them today!
If you came from the insanely amazing stamper, Krystie Hersch (June Guest Trendsetter)'s blog, you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start the hop from Jessica's blog.
Don't forget to leave a comment to each Trendsetter's blog to win the new sets!


I made 2 samples for the sneak peek and both cards are also entered Stampin' Out Alzheimer's (SOA) event challenges. I'm so happy to find out they already passed the original goal for the donation!! A lot of fun things are still going on over SOA until June 1st. If you have a time to play for a good cause, please sign up and check them out!


OK, when I saw this stamp set, I was soooo excited!! I think Jessica knows what we all need, lol! The set is called " Rejuvenate", illustrated by Pien DaPino. As you see, it's a bath & Spa related set and fabulous images with perfect words & sentiments are in it!
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 88 (Mojo88). Here is the link from SOA (you have to sign up first). I colored the image with Copics and cut out the circle shape instead of using the entire image. I stamped each word on the top and the sentiment on the bottom.


Stamps: Rejuvenate (There She Goes)
Paper: basic black (SU), aqua mist, white cardstock, everyday blessings dp (PTI)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko), copic markers
Accessories: brads (SU), ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

Tools: Nestabilities (Spellbinders), CB embossign folder (Provo Crafts), piercing tool






The next set is one of the most beautiful sets from TSG (I think that every month, lol). The set is called "Act of Kindness" with 19 beautiful shilouette images and sentiments. It is perfectly collaborated with "Nature of Friendship" and other shilouette stamps from TSG.
I made the card for Two By Two Card Challenge, sponsored by Taylored Expressions and hosted by Jodi and Karen. Here is the link about the challenge.They suggested to use brown & pink color combo and 2 embellishments. The funny coincedence was I used only 2 stamps, too - one shilouette and one sentiment. Jodi, can I have a bonus point for that??, lol.


Stamps: Act of Kindness (There She Goes)
Paper: pink pirouette (SU), dark chocolate, white cardstock (PTI), saultry dp (Basic Gray)
Ink: pink pirouette, chocolate chip (SU)
Accessories: hem twine (SU), dew drop (Michael's)

Tools: Nestabilities (Spellbinders), piercing tool



Next, hop over to Silke's blog! I know her sneak peek is fabulous!!

Oh, before you go... one more thing - We are going to have Release Party Chat over TSG Forum from 6-8 pm pacific time tonight!! Hope you will join us for the chat, mini challenge & prize :)
I will leave the blog hop order just in case you get lost. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

The Acts of Kindness set is so appropriate for what's going on in the world, isn't it? We all need to show MORE acts of kindness to people.
