Gloria Steiger picked the top 3 from last week and they are:

#27 Nadine - I adore her use of bright colors and shiny texture on her ATC.
And I'm always a fan of the Spotted Monster.

#30 Amanda - Such a gorgeous layout, and brilliant use of the dies
and washi tape to represent polka dots in such a clever and unexpected way.

#38 Merlina - Super fun color palette. Great idea to use shrink plastic with the
same focal image for more interest and dimension.

Julie Steed chose our top 3 from the last two week's Text Background challenge and they are:

#9  - I love the bright pops of color from the flower and enamel dots that really make Hussena’s card stand out. 


#13: I kept coming back to Yvonne’s blog to peek at her project. The colors she used on her alcohol ink background work beautifully together and her use of color and text make the focal image shine.

#21: How incredibly clever to embroider over a stamped image! Way to think outside the box, Maria.

Stampotique New Release and Blog Hop

Today we are joined by the Stampotique Design Team to showcase the images released from Stampotique this month.  If you haven't had a chance to see what's new, you can do that over on the Stampotique website here.

As with any of the releases, there are a variety of stamps from our artists for any stampers, scrapbookers and Art Journal enthusiasts  out there.  We also have a new artist with us this release. Her name is Tracy Scott and you can see her stamps HERE..... We always love to see what your favorites are so while you are hopping around, make sure to stop by and say "hi" on our blogs and come back here and tell us what some of your favorite images from this release were.

We'll be giving away a $30 gift certificate for the online store and a grab bag of stamps to two random winners who have visited the blogs. You won't know which blog we are chasing winners from so stop by and visit them all.  We will pick the winners on our first challenge in August.

Have fun hopping!
