Buckets of love Blog Hop Challenge


Today we are showing off our Buckets of Love stamp set, and for my card today I chose this delightful tin bucket overflowing with gorgeous daisies and yummy hearts!  Isn't this fun??


TSGFlowerBucket 


As you can see, I decided to try the fabulous Miss Jodi's "framing" technique on my image panel, which she was kind enough to share with us a couple of weeks ago.  Well, this is my rendition and I can just see Jodi now.. Smiley from millan.net oh well.. you can't blame a girl for trying right??  Anyhoo, this stamp is just so fun and easy to color! I used copic markers and I cut out a layer of the flowers to mount on dimensionals so that they'd be nice and "poofy" (and yes, that's a technical term..ahem..)  I then added some Vintage photo distress ink to the edges and to the background of my panel and stamped my sentiment before adding the framing line. 


I used some gorgeous patterned paper from Webster's pages and finished up my card with some lace trim, an antique brass ribbon slide and even a couple of little rhinestones..grungy and cute - my dream come true! lol..



so now, how would you like a chance to win the “Buckets of Love” stamp set???


For a chance to win, just go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their “Buckets of Love” 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 Blog Hop Challenge post which has all the other little details you need to know! 


Next on the hop is the lovely Angela, so get ready to be dazzled and have fun hopping along! 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
