{TSG January Release} Perk Up!

***Scroll down for my Kraftin' Kimmie Hop project***



Today is day two of this month's new release Blog Hop Challenges, and we have another ADORABLE set for you to LOVE!!

Friendship and coffee are a good blend to send greetings near and far. Torico has created a darling set to perk up the one "mug" you’ve been missing. An absolute must for those sweets and treats without all the calories!

I went for a Shabby Tea Room kind of look...damask, crochet trim,  doily border,  pearls,  botanicals, fine china... those sort of lovelies;)


I decided to try my hand at a Criss Cross Pocket Card (you can find the tutorial here, in the SCS resources). I was inspired by Jody Morrow for this one:)
Here is a pic with the insert removed:

The 'bits and pieces' all separated:

Here is the beck, decorated, so you can write a message here as well, or if nothing else, it's pretty to look at...I have stamped my TSG signature stamp on the back.
And you can see that the smallest cup was popped up on dimensionals....

 The front, when the belly band is removed and the insert is out.

Paper-pieced tea/coffee cups, with some fancy pearl accents....

And everything all put together again.

Perk Up! is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 36 stamps and will sell for $18.00.

Would you like to win the new Perk Up! stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday January 28th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

Here is the list of designers participating today!!
