Float My Boat Blog Hop Challenge

*** If you are here for my Wednesday Stamp Club post with My Favorite Things, just scroll down a little. THANKS!!***

Hey everyone, and welcome to night two of this month's There She Goes blog hop challenges!!! I hope you are LOVING this month's sets just as much as we are....seriously...they are so cute!!! Tonight's hop started at the There She Goes blog, if you are here now, you should have come from Jessica's blog!!

Awhile back Torico had posted some of her 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 even more versatility!
Float My Boat is a 3x4 set that includes a
total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7

Would you like a chance to win the Float My Boat stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Float My Boat 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 Float My Boat stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday July 30th during the Release Party Chat.

For my card tonight, I started by coloring my cutie pie little boy on X-Press It Blending card with my Copics. It was then layered with So Saffron(SU), Orange Fizz, and Hot Fudge(both MFT). I then used some My Mind's Eye Fine&Dandy paper, and cut it out with my Circle Nesties. It was layered with the same colors. I used the MFT Catch A Wave Die-namics for my wave border on the side. My ribbons are both SU, brads are from American Crafts, and my spiral clip is Creative Express. I followed a past Mojo Monday fun!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great time on the hop!! Speaking of hopping, better get to Karen's Blog..she's AH-mazing!!!

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! Since it is Wednesday, technically, it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things!!

For my card tonight....well, I blame Jackie Pedro. You see, Jackie is one of my favoritist people, and she keeps using this GORGEOUS paper-Odds and Ends from Cosmo Cricket. I HAD TO HAVE IT!!! I didn't even color anything on this card...because I didn't want to take away from the GORGEOUSNESS of this paper....and with an AMAZING set like Sew Nifty, well, no coloring necessary!! I started by stamping my sentiment on Very Vanilla card stock. I then layered it with's so yummy, seriously!! I then cut out three thread spools using Fossil, and the Sew Nifty Die-namics. I layered them together, so when I wrapped my Maraschino twine, it wouldn't fold the edges under. I stamped my thread spool with Memento Rich Cocoa on those, first. My other card stock colors are Wild Cherry, and Sno Cone...both from MFT. I used the Medium Simply Scalloped Die-namics for my scallops. My ribbon is from SU, spiral clip from Creative Express, and my brads are from American Crafts.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and added another SUPER CUTE saying from this set.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's blog for a full list of designers participating in today's sketch!!
