TSG99- Stand Out From the Background

Since this is Release Week, our challenge for today is being issued by our fearless leader, Jessica! She wants us to create a ONE LAYER card that has images stamped in the same color as the card base (monotone) to create a background scene, and then stamp the main image onto a separate piece of cardstock. The main image must then be colored, cut out, and added to the monotone card base to complete the scene. Here’s an example Jessica made using the cute mini set Bee Happy-

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes the idea of standing out from the background, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Mar 28th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG99 so we can check out your beautiful work!

  1. Jess, your card is adorbs! I am wondering about the size, though. Can you give me the dimensions?

  2. That's awesome, thanks so much! :D

  3. Hi Jessica, I actually made THREE cards but since they are all in the same post Linky won't let me link all of them - but I did THREE, they are all in the same post on my blog, hope you will check it out and tell me what you think:
    Hope you like them!!

  4. Okay, not sure where my last post went... I actually made three cards for this week's challenge, but linky would not let me post separate pictures of them because they were all part of the same post - any suggestions on how I might be able to get them to show up Jessica? I hope you like them!!

  5. YAAY! Figured out how to do it, using my SCS gallery though, rather than my blog for all three. Hope you like them!!

  6. Found your store through Chupa which lead me here. So glad I found you. Looking forward to the next challenge.


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
