TSG Float My Boat Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of There She Goes new release sneak peeks! I hope you enjoyed yesterday... there's more fabulousness to come, I assure you!!
You should have come here from Holly's blog, but if you want to join in the fun, or get lost on the way, please refer to the TSG Blog for the complete Blog Hop list and details.

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.

I wanted to make the waves out of cardstock, with the negative scallops, but my puches don't make them, unfortunately. I thought that the eyelet scallops would look fun too, and so that's what I did.
I cut out the boy's hands, so that he appears to be reaching into the sea. I stamped some fishies from Best Fishes, as if they're coming closer to meet the lil' guy :)
I also stamped the birds from By The Sea, on the sky. There are birds images in the new set too, but I wanted to show you the versatility of the sets.
The clouds are cut out of the cardstock, and dotted with Ice Stickles.

  7. AWESOME Iwona! I love how you combined this adorable new set with the birds from By the Sea and the fishies from Best Fishes too. And that burlap patch is the perfect accent to add a rustic feel and a touch of texture too.
