The detail of the Dies are amazing!

I have been having a great summer with family.
Keeping Memories documented in a fun way is something that 
I love to do as well as making cards.

Journal cards for Simple Stories Albums, Project Life, or
Smash books are a fun and easy way to embellish a cherished
photo for your keepsaking.

I have printed a few photos from the last few weeks 
and paired them with some really fun papers and Top Dog Dies.

Guesting on CAS(E) This Sketch!


WOW... I am so overjoyed to join this 
maga hit challenge 
as along with you,
 I ADORE the designers creations and their 
wonderful sketches each week!


For this challenge I reversed up the sketch a little.

I can't help I am partial to black......not everyone is
and that is okay too.


Supplies:
SU! Corner Garden
Judikins Embossing Clear Detail



And with what I see as the negative space, 
I filled it in with the SU! Corner Garden
stamp embossed in clear.

Add the
Black Top Dog Dies Birds and Nest Die
and the Clearly Besotted Sentiment
and I love the soft and black together.....

Magnificent MUSE!

Have you seen this weeks MUSE?
Bobby 
of 
Bits and Pieces
takes it to a whole new level!!!!

Just Magnificent!!!

Now you don't have to take this challenge to 
Embossing Paste level, 
but I do hope that you are inspired to join in 
and have some fun!!!
Use any colors you like, pastels if dark tones are not your
cup of tea, I can't wait to see what you do!

Also....this is a WEEKLY PNW Crafters Challenge.
I challenge any one of the PNW Crafters Group to
also play the MUSE Challenge!
Let's see what you got!

Momenta Stencil
WPlus 9 Circle Die
SU! Sentiment Yippee Skippee Set
Pickled Raspberry Distress Ink and Marker
Dreamweavers Embossing Paste
Momento Paris Dusk Ink

I used a bamboo stencil from the Momenta Love Peace Longevity Set
and used Dreamwaever Stencils Embossing Paste.
Once dry I used a Wplus 9 Circle Die on Neenah white paper with
 The Stampin Up Sentiment 
from the Yippeeee-Skippeee Set. 
 I used Memento Paris Dusk (masking off the top portion of the setniment with Washi tape) 
and then used Raspberry distress ink to color the Awesome and then stamped.
I ran the circle edge on the Paris Dusk ink to give a dark edge to the circle and then using
double sided foam popped up the panel and the circle sentiement
I sponged some pickled raspberry distress ink lightly on the leaves and then
used the distress marke to come in for some darker areas.

Posting to MUSE!
Here is Bobby's Wonderful Inspiration Card!
I hope you are inspired to join along too!!!

CASology - #110: Letter!


I ADORE CASology, the DT
and all of you players!!!

Love seeing what you come up with every week.
The week the CUE is LETTER!

This past weekend I got together with some PNW
crafting pals Amy Tsuruta and Kathryn Lorenzini
and I made elements of this card..
I chatted so much I had to assemble it later at home..

Right now I should be enjoying the Pacific Northwest Summer Weather in Port Townsend
This is our anniversary week and a tradition is to 
spend 3 - 4 days enjoying the
harbor town.  
Many things to do there if you stay!

Sweet mail.... I LOVE  Happy Mail!

I used Tim Holtz distress inks on a panel of Kromecote paper, 
stamped the exclusive July 2014 Simon Says Stamp Kit "Sending Happy Mail"
envelopes and cut and popped then up on foam.
The mini hearts are from the Mama Elephant XOXO set.
I used copics to add interest over the op of the letters.

I sure hope that you are INSPIRED to join along!
