Merry Monday -Button Wreath


Because of KIM!!!
I spied Kim Singdahlsen's Card on 
Merry Monday's Last challenge.
I immediately PINNED it and wanted to case it.
Check out her lovely card 
(HERE)

It is definitely more elegant with gold embossing and sequins, 
where mine is more 
country with ribbons and buttons
Though I HAD to use this stamp once I saw her card.


Maybe you know how that is?  
You see a card and BAM, you have to pull that stamp out!


I just ADORE this STAMPABILITIES sentiment!!!!

CAS(E) this sketch! - Today is the First Day!

CAS(E) this sketch! - Today is the First Day!

Lovely designs this week. 
All the designs
and DT creations are stunning.
I hope you can go check them out!!!!

I inked up for the first time the Clearly Besotted 
Flight of Fancy Stamp Set.
Using Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay as the main color, 
I inked the butterfly and then I used  Copics to deepen the color.
Malachite G16, Teal Blue BG18, and Mint Green BG 13
By starting at the inner point near the body and 
feathering out the tips with a lighter touch sweeping up.
I then touched up the teardrop designs
on the edges of the wings with lighter
 to darker towards one edge.

I hope you are getting to do some crafting too!


Supplies
Clearly Besotted Flight of Fancy Stamp and Die Set
MFT About New Beginnings Clear Sentiments Set
Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics

Sending Thanks - Colour Me!


All my life I have lived in the Puget Sound Area.
One side of the Sound or the other.
I have ridden a ferry so many times that I still 
 try to stay romantic about it. 
The serene loveliness, the water and to see seals on buoys just
lounging in the afternoon.

This card is about life around here when I see family, 
or they see me
a ferry ride away........



To get a better idea about how much water
I live around, here is a map.
I live in Kirkland.
 At the top northern edge of Lake Washington.
If you drive South and go directly West .....Seattle is there, 
and directly West from 
that across the Sound is Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo and Suquamish.
All childhood towns where I have lived.
I love it here.

The Beginning is Always Today - AAA Card Challenge

                                    
The Design Team on AAA cards 
are some super sweet gals!
More than a few pop in from time to time to say hello!  
A very talented team, that I really will make
 better efforts to join in
 their fun!

I first thought of this stamp, of course I wanted 
to go a little cheeky so I made the previous card on this blog first, then I settled in and pulled this stamp from its home 
and got to work.
Fast and easy, that is how I like them!

Maybe you have a square image stamp you can cut in 
4ths and play along too!!!
Check out  AAA Card (CAS) Challenge
