This is for the Clean and Simple challenge here on SCS today...use dry embossing!

So easy since I tend to do it a lot! One of my favorite embossing plates is PTI's woodgrain. I love to use it on core-dinations paper and sand it up. I am in need of a bunch of manly cards...all the guys in my family have summer bdays! This one is for my cool cousin with a harley! TFL!

One more...a simple Thank you with my new PTI set and when they match!

I just got these awesome stamps today from Skipping Stones Designs....OMG I {heart} them! Here are 2 cards I made (with my new favorite thing- rolled roses!)...
The first is a sketch from Skipping Stones SSD031...

*PS I made the BG paper myself! I downloaded the screenplays from Twilight and New Moon (don't know if they are real but it worked for me!) and played with my new version of photoshop and viola! FUN!

OK one more...I gotta show love to Edward too....
This sketch is from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #81...

a CAS sketch

I had a few minutes early this morning before the kids woke up today (which I will pay for later when I am falling asleep at the pool) so I made a challenge card...actually 2 challenges. This is for the SCS color challenge today (rich razzleberry, so saffron, baja breeze CC278) and the stampTV sketch challenge (stvsketchms6). I was drawn to this sketch because it was CAS but in the end it was quite a challenge for me!

PS of course after I took the picture and typed in the whole post, I realized I used cream for the card base and white for the image panel. Normally, I just don't like to mix white and cream but oh well....

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Teatime additions, polka dot basics,
heartfelt sentiments
ink- so saffron, rich razzleberry
paper- rich razzleberry, so saffron, white, vintage cream
accessories- border punch, ribbon
