Sweet Stamp Shop New Release: Day One BLOG HOP – School’s Out card set

HELLO~ It’s NEW RELEASE time over at the Sweet Stamp Shop! We’ve got THREE NEW ADORABLE sets to show you this week! Today is day one of a three day hop! Each day, different designers will be showcasing the new sets! Today, you should have come to me by way of the fabulously talented EMILY! If you get lost along the way, no worries! Here is the complete list of participants for day one!

I have the honor of showcasing School’s Out! How appropriate because this week is Teacher’s Appreciation week at my son’s school, so I made a set of cards for his teachers. I also have another project that I am working on using this set that I will blog towards the end of the week…. Here is a close up of the card:

The full sets will be revealed on day three of the hop! But I have to say, I love this set! I used a lot of distress ink techniques on this card to pair with the adorable images of the set! The apples were stamped with a Pearl Paint Dabber, so it really sparkles against that Pumice Stone distress ink! The bus image is just too cute for words and I have an idea of making a card for Lucas and putting his little face in the window of the bus, tee hee! That will be coming soon, but for this card, I wanted to focus on the teachers, so this card is a set of 8!

GIVEAWAY ALERT: Leave an “original” comment on each of the designer’s blogs each day during the 3 day hop, and you could win one of the new sets from this release! (Please, no copy/pasting, where is the fun in that)….. Also, be sure to head on over to the Sweet Stamp Shop homepage and you will find a coupon code for 15% off for the new sets! All the sets will be revealed in full and available for purchase on Thursday!!!!

Next up on the hop is KELLEY and I know she has something FABULOUS in store for you!
