I'm Trendie!

I have some fun news today!  I am delighted to announce that I'll be the first "Trendie" Designer for There She Goes Stamps....I'll be Guest Designing for them for the next couple of months!  I really enjoy the clean lines and great coloring opportunities that go along with these wonderfully illustrated images.  They are sweet, fun, pretty, classy and witty.  I'm thrilled to join this amazingly talented team, thanks Jessica and the Trendsetter gang for giving me this opportunity!

I have something sweet and pretty for you with some TSG stamps, this one with the set Garden of Friends.  It's a little breath of spring and summer for this fall day :)


I have a thing for Hydrangeas, there's just something awesome about their color, especially the bluey-purply ones.  So to see a whole watering can full of Hydrangeas, Lilacs and Delphinium is so appealing to me.

I colored up this vase with a whole bunch of Copics (B0000, BV0000, BV02, BV04, B34, B24, B26, V12, V15, V17, YG11, YG17, G12, G24, Y19, Y38, C2, C3, C5).  Then I paired the pretty can with Memory Box's Enchanted papers, some gorgeous silk ribbon and some pretty square gemstones.



Thanks for stopping by on my first Trendie Day!

Recipe:  Stamps - There She Goes - Garden of Friends;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Paper:  Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, Memory Box Enchanted DSP, Basic Grey, Almost Amethyst;  Accessories:  Copic Markers, Silk Ribbon, Square Rhinestones, Dimensionals.
