I came up with the idea for "Little Tees" before my first stamps came out, it has been the hardest one to wait for, but it's finally here(you can order this tonight at 10 PM CST and see the whole set during the release party(plus more samples with it)! I think my "Tip Sheet" for this set is up to 3 PAGES now, there is no end to the number of techniques you can apply and combinations you can create with these 3 tees, and 34 images and greetings. I've tried to give you all the basics and more (that I could get on one sheet!), but also think of these shirts like blank canvasses that allow you to express your individuality, (just like our shirts do!) using any other favorite stamp images or greetings from your collection! Go to town decorating them with all your glitters, bling, puff paint, gel pens and Spicas, rub ons, EPs, it's like a having your own personal tee shirt shop! After I got my set trimmed I'd stamped out and decorated about 10 shirts in no time, it's SO fast and fun! (and a little addictive) AND, you'll see they don't always have to be T-shirts! ;) (You can also skip the shirt when you want and just use the images and greetings alone, of course) Expect to see a different one popping up on my blog daily LOL!
I chose to share this sample with you first because I LOVE how the sleeves of this one ringer tee can be linked with another when you cut them out! They are popped up on dimensionals with the hanger stamped behind them. (I liked my hatpin trick and colors so much on the card I made for Rupa's set last month I had to CASE myself a bit for this one!) If the black looks gray on the "MISS U" shirt (aren't these varsity letters GREAT??), it's the light reflecting off the Sakura glaze I added with my pen on everything, makes them looks like real iron-ons hee!! Every thing you see on this card comes from this set. (how many different images do YOU think I used?) ;) I made this card before CHA, but now that I'm back it's definitely making me think of all my new/old buddies I spend time with, just being ourselves...we'll be friends forever :)
Hope you're as excited about this set as I am, now I'm off to check out all the other sneak peeks made with this set (a few I've seen, most I haven't!) one of which from my guest deisnger this month Cathy Tidwell and an additional guest Jody Morrow, wait til you see! A complete list of the links is on Gina K's blog where she is also giving away this set to one person who leaves a comment, be sure to throw your name in the hat! See you tonight at the the par-tay! (hmm, what shaell I wear??) ;)
* Naming the set, I had several ideas floating around, but in the end, "Little Tees" (get it, "tease"??!) won me over!! It's sassy, no?
**When I was little about the coolest thing I could do was going to the mall and getting a t-shirt made with my name on it in fuzzy letters and a glittery butterfly or the like! Do you have a favorite T-shirt (now, or a memory of one you wanted to wear just about every day growing up?) Please tell me about it here!
PS Did you know that sneaky Joanne Basile leaked a sample with the set Tuesday in the SCS gallery?! Almost 400 people have viewed it now, were you one of them??? LOL!
