Hello, friends!


Did you miss me yesterday?   I had to sit on the sidelines and watch the fun as there was a slight problem with our glorious mail system.  But I am here today!!  Yay!


Today is day #3 of the There She Goes sneak peeks.   If you have arrived here from Heather’s blog, then you are spot on!  If not, you really should start back on the There She Goes team blog so you can get the details on how to win a set of these amazing stamps!


Theresa, this one’s for you!! *Wink*   Our newest illustrator, Torico, has knocked it out of the park with this adorable Puppy Love set!  I know you all are going to love what you see!




I created my own doggie dp by typing the words ruff ruff and bow wow in different fonts in a word doc.   I found a wingding font that had a little heart in it, too, so I stuck that here and there.   Then I printed the sheet off in grayscale.   I used a copic marker to color the hearts, then I sponged the piece I needed with distressing ink.   The “fence” is a piece of real red card stock with the edge punched with an older Martha Stewart border punch.  Then I drew lines and did some shading and sponging.




Here are my deets:

Stamps: There She Goes’ Puppy Love

Colors: GP White, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Real Red

Ink: Copics, Tim Holtz distressing ink

Accessories: Printer, 1″ wired black sheer offray ribbon, chestnut 1/2 pearls, nesties, MS border punch, dimensionals





Ok, on to the next new set…. BEE Happy!   This is another set illustrated by Torico.   The little honey comb flowers are too cute!!


For my bee trail, I just pierced some evenly spaced holes in my bashful blue cardstock and then I stitched them with black thread.   The fence is 2 1/2″ x 1/4″ strips of cardstock.   I rounded the top edges with a 1/2″ circle punch.  Behind the fence is a little green rolling hill.  The sky is sponged with white ink to simulate clouds.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  There She Goes’ BEE Happy

Colors: GP White, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Green Galore

Ink: Versafine brilliant white, copics

Accessories: 1/2″ blue grosgrain with small white flowers, candy dots, thread, needle, piercing tool, circle punches, word window punch, sticky tape, dimensionals


Now it’s time to send you off to Jessica’s blog!   Our fearless leader has not only been stamping this week, she is moving, too!   Send her some special love!

Thanks so much for stopping by!   Mark your calendars for Saturday night at 7pm PST and join us for the release party in the There She Goes forums!!  See you there!
