Top Dog Dies - Save the Date Mailer Card Tutorial

Top Dog Dies - Save the Date 
Mailer Card Tutorial

Hello YOU!

I am so thrilled to be on the Top Dog Dies Design Team this summer!
The NEW Releases are just FABULOUS and
some of the regular items are so great too!

The moment I saw the Top Dog Dies Camera Die I knew that it also
could be used to make a very FUN 
Announcement or Invitation Card.

So Today, 
check out my Post on
The Top Dog Dies Blog!
I Would LOVE it if you said hello over there
and let me know what you think of this re-purpose of a die set, 
(My First Tutorial)
and what types of multi use do you get from your dies!

FUSION July 31

Fusion - Beachhouse Beauty!

WOW!
Another lovely FUSION, 

I love the soft blues and yellows and muted tones, 

I used soft colors to make a Thank You card 
for a friend.  
I popped up one side of the panel after cutting really
close to the image to accentuate the curves.

I am looking forward to seeing what 
you come up with!

I really love the sketch too, I predict I will play again with FUSION!!!
(I hope you join too!)

The Challenge #11 - We're Back!

We're Back!
Another Challenge at
"The Challenge" on Lesley Croghan's Blog 

This week again we have your choice, 
a sketch or a color combo
or both!

The wonderfully easy sketches of THE CHALLENGE, 
are the best and..
I get INSPIRED right away!
I am also so honored to team up in the inspiration with
these wonderful, fun, and vibrantly creative ladies!

Lesley Croghan  - Always Playing with Paper
Lori Tecler of Inking Aloud 
 - Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life -


I hope that you are INSPIRED too!

I used the sketch and really wanted to showcase the 
bright pinks with turquoise and a pop of black.
I used white core paper that once
embossed, shows some of the white in the creases of the design.

You do have to be careful with white core paper it is frail once embossed.


Supplies:
Clearly Besotted Many Thanks
Memory Box Moonlight Butterfly Die
Martha Stewart Butterfly Trio Punch
DP 6x6 Little Azalea Embellish by Dena 
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Sizzix Border Scallop Die

Mini Pearl Embellishments



The Challenge is a Sketch Card Challenge 
that is hosted biweekly by

I truly hope that you will be inspired and 
will join us!
