CardMaker Magazine + CAS-Fridays blog hop

Hello, friends! 

I'm so excited to be participating today in a blog hop with the CardMaker Magazine blog team featuring CAS-Fridays Stamps. You should have arrived here today from Jeanne J's blog. 

I used the stamp set Flower Power for my card today. I created a fun pop of color in the white embossed sentiment by adding some of my Gansai watercolor inks. I was inspired by a window display at a Starbucks shop in the mall. I'm telling you, inspiration is EVERYWHERE:) I stamped one of the smaller flowers from the Daisy Chain set to create the little leaves as an accent for some of the colored flowers on individual letters. To complete the card, I added some hearts and thread. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Your next stop is the fabulous Kimberly R's

Virtual Smooches: Creating a Base for Line Art Dies

Hello, friends:}
Today is my day to share a video over on the Paper Smooches video blog- Virtual Smooches

This is a simple and quick video sharing how I use the "emboss and cut" technique to make bases for line art dies from PS. Line art dies are die cuts that create line outlines. There are so many of these in the PS collection, and they are great for creating SOOOOO many projects (i.e. paperclip tops, shakers, 3D embellishments and images). 

THANKS so much for stopping by--- be sure to go HERE for my video! Be blessed:}

Paper Smooches challenge- July #2

Hello, friends:}

I hope you are enjoying playing along with our monthly Paper Smooches challenge for the month of July-- this challenge is a FAN FAVORITE! Anything Goes, friends!!!!!!!! 
Picture: Credit HERE 

I DO NOT have any time or supplies to create anything new because they are being packed up for our move in a few weeks. HOWEVER... I have been saving extra projects for "such a time as this" for over a year! This card was created for a friend who lost his special pup last year. I just love that wooden dog embellishment! I think it goes well with the papers and PS stamps, and it fit my friend's personality perfectly! I used the following PS stamps/dies: HeartsSorry Wordand Paws for a Cause. 

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:) 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
