Forget Your Trebles!

Did you know that tomorrow is International Jazz Day?!  That is our theme for this week at Crazy 4 Challenges - music!  Use music designer paper, musical notes, - be inspired by a song - whatever musical moves your fancy!

I used CAS-ual Fridays Big Treble stamp set and their Treble Clef Fri-die for my creation this week.

Easy Peasy with these stamps and dies!

Create Together with Marcie Sharp

Hey there - My lovely daughter Marcie Sharp has invited me to Create Together and I was most happy to oblige!

Marcie gave me this inspiration piece to work with and one rule - NO PATTERNED PAPER (eek!) and honestly, I almost went over and told her to pick another one lol! This is not really my taste, but I'm a professional - right? - right?? - so I made it work.

I started out using the SSS Falling Stars die and then it just evolved from there.  Since I could see Birthday in those stars, I brought out my Crafter's' Companion Sara Signature Happy Birthday stamp and Dies.

The balloons are embossed - isn't that awesome!!   One swipe through the Gemini Die Cutting and  Embossing Machine and that balloon was cut and embossed - perfect!

The sentiment is from Sara Signature stamp set - love that font!

That's all I have today - make your way over to Marcie's Blog - Cardmakin' Chaos - and see the awesome creation she has put together!

Good day - I am finally posting our Crazy 4 Challenges post - Blogger seems to be having a childish fit and my posts won't save, but I am going to go ahead and see if it will publish ----ugh, technology!

This week at Crazy 4 Challenges, we have a sketch challenge and I loved putting this one together!

I die cut three rectangles with a small die, and using the Verity Rose stamp set from Crafter's Companion, I stamped the beautiful rose three times onto the Crafter's Companion white watercolour paper.

I watercolored each rose and then added sparkly glitter to each rose.  The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion as is the Verity Rose patterned paper - love this paper!

Take a boo over to Crazy 4 Challenges and try out the sketch - it's fabulous!!
