Awhile back Torico had posted some of sketches on her Facebook page and this adorable boy and his puppy got lots of attention! So many of you said that it needed to be made into a stamp and we agreed. Not only is this mini set great by itself, but it can also be combined with many of Torico's other TSG stamp sets for more versatility! "Float My Boat" is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7.
It's time for another Color Throwdown, and this week is my turn to pick the colors! I saw a mix of these colors in a pile of scraps on my table one day and thought they were quite pretty together (contrary to what SOME people might think *not pointing fingers at Bar!*) LOLOL I rarely use Soft Suede or River Rock, so in the spirit of being challenged, I thought we'd give this a try today! I hope you'll join us!
My Throwdown sisters have more inspiration for you, so be sure to check them out...

It's fabulous Friday and that means the Bella Babes have another Bellarific Friday challenge for you! This week, Ebrubella has created these two sketch variations for our challenge. You can check out all the creations from the Babes over at Blogabella, and I hope also that we'll see a LOT of creations from the Sistahood! There's nothing better than a good sketch challenge, so I hope there were a lot of Sistahs playing along!
I chose to create the square version of the sketch, with the circle element within the square using the Curly Silhouette flower, and the Eclectic Butterfly on Print stamps. My sentiment comes from the "Sadie" by Mo Manning stamp set. I stamped the Curly Silhouette flower on the left side with Versamark ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, then sponged Ranger Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Dried Marigold and Wild Honey around the image. I then cut out the circle, and stamped the Eclectic Butterfly using black Staz-On ink. The circle was distress on the edges and sponged with Antique Linen ink, then I also added a few spritzes of Perfect Pearls mist for a shimmer (that unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo). I embellished with some silly-stiches, pearls and a Prima flower.

Hello everyone! How is your week so far? Since it's Tuesday, it's obviously time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge with the Flourishes Blog Team! Silke is our hostess this week, and she has chosen this fabulous Summer photo for inspiration! Take a good look at it, and be inspired to create! Be sure to let us know in your post what it was about the photo that inspired you!
I was ecstatic when I found this purple flower in my stash that matched the photo so well, and even more excited when I found cardstock to match! :) I chose to use the Country Charm Labels stamp set on my card, and cut out the label with my Grommet Tags Nestabilities. I added a script background stamp (source unknown) to the background of the gray paper to mimic the textures in the wicker furniture too, and accented with some black. The gray seam binding I used her was a gift from my BFF, Bar! The butterfly is from Creative Charms.
