By The Sea Blog Hop Challenge

This beautiful ocean/beach themed set was illustrated by talented Chris Dark. The ocean is one of my very favorite places to be. There is just something so amazingly calming about it that instantly puts me at peace. I’ve had the idea for a beach set for awhile and when I met Chris, I knew that her illustration style would be perfect for it! I sketched up a rough draft of my ideas and emailed them to her. When I received her illustrations a short time later I was absolutely blown away! The way she brought this set to life is just amazing. The detail in her images make you feel as if you are right there at the beach enjoying the calming waves and the salty sea air :)

By The Sea is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 37 stamps and will sell for $24.

Would you like a chance to win the By The Sea stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their By The Sea 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 this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own By The Sea stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (May 29th) during the Release Party Chat.

The first stop on our Blog Hop Challenge is the illustrator of this gorgeous set, Chris! I have also included links to the rest of the Trendsetters that will be participating in this hop just in case you get lost along the way. Happy Hopping!


Happy hopping everyone!
