So cool! Our theme this round at Make My Monday #209 is "in the city!"
I couldn't resist pulling in our new Let's Go Shopping suite for this one - so fun, and perfectly highlights all the best of city life! Today's card is a pretty shaker, inspired by the catty, and designed for a special shaker class I have coming up! So much fun building this cafe, and setting it on it's street - my little details pieces are actually cut from the DSP, though you can also stamp them! And do you like that cobblestone DSP? Just perfect! I think the class ladies will like it, too!
I can't wait to see YOUR adventures "in the city!" Meet you at the challenge!

So excited that we've rolled over to a new month for NBUS #52 - I have some new goodies to break in!
Today I decided to break in my new Vertical Blooms stamp set - I have actually never had any vertical sentiments before! Of course, I'm starting with this little block stack instead of one of the true verticals, lol, but hey, I'm getting closer, right?? Anyway, I have to admit I took some inspiration from one of the catalog pictures, and started channeling this retired Tea Boutique DSP - I'm starting to feel little twinges about when this set of In Colors retires, and I still have so many goodies for them! The little vine was a snap to put together, and I added some extra blooms at the top to round out the crown - love it!

Amy has created such a versatile layered sketch for us this week at Sunday Stamps #292!
After thinking it over, I decided these layers might be just right for showing off a new sneaky peek set - this is a pre-order opportunity from our upcoming Spring Mini Catty for World Cardmaking Day on Oct 1 - say hello to Warm Welcome! SU! is hosting a free virtual crafting event featuring 3 stamp sets, of which this is one! Go HERE to register for this free event! I couldn't resist the pre-order opportunity, there are some fun possibilities with this one!

I think I can JUST squeak in to this round of Festive Friday #115 - which celebrates International Dog Day! Yes!
I have several beloved dog sets to choose from, and one my faves is 2021's Hot Dog! There's a trio of cute wiener dogs to choose from, and they have a full wardrobe to go with, too, complete with a cone of shame, lol. I kept things pretty simple today, and added a simple bow to this handsome fellow holding his love note. I focused on neutral colors, texture (HOUNDstooth, get it, I so crack myself up!) and twine. Well, and the dog, lol. I even scrounged up a Playful Pets Trinket for the twine! Party at our house on August 26!

Wow, Time Out Challenges #219 has a gorgeous sunset beachfront pic for our inspiration this week! Love it!
The gorgeous pic immediately made me think of our wonderful New Horizons DSP - so glad I still have some! I started out with the little fronds that are in the accompanying On the Horizon stamp set, but went hunting when I realized they were too "short," lol. I spotted the taller grass in my old Home to Roost set from 2019 - perfect! I also realized the "missing you" sentiment would be just right for my quiet scene - it all just came together!

Annual Catty Roundup Class, Aug 13 at 2 PM
I couldn't resist this catch-all class to "round up" some stamp sets that don't quite fit in our other classes, lol. There will be a little bit of everything, with at least 5 all-occasion cards with envelopes today! I think some Sale-A-Bration could sneak in, too, lol! Class includes all supplies needed for your projects (bring your own fave snips and adhesive!) plus snacks and drinks, and a special gift from me, all for $25! This class can also be FREE with your order of $30 or more! Class is announced for Saturday, August 13 at 2 pm - RSVP now to save your spot!
Another fun challenge from Less is More #468 - our cue this round is to "emboss!"
My instinct is to go white-on-white for LIM, but what folder to use? Hey, how about the stunning Twigs & Sprigs EF that I got way back when our annual catty first came out and have still never used?? Perfect, lol. This folder is so pretty, and make extra deep and detailed impressions. It actually comes bundled with matching dies, the idea being that you could cut out one the twig shapes, and THEN emboss it. Today I just did a simple strip that I could mount on the card front. I went with this simple Phrase from our SAB Amazing Phrasing in Soft Succulent, which brought in a few matching Opal Rounds. So sweet!

Hm, Shopping Our Stash #470 is having a "power of pastels" challenge - this should be interesting!
I started with the DSP on this one - I don't usually have much in the way of pastels, but, I do still have some likely scraps from our Heart & Home pack that I think fit the bill! I even pulled out Honeybee Home to stamp along with it - love this pretty stem! I heat embossed the sentiment onto some matching Fresh Freesia CS, and cut it out with the new Deckled Rectangles dies, which is when I realized I could cut ALL the layers with the dies, lol. Sometimes I just work backwards, lol...
Honeybee Home Stamp Set; Heart & Home DSP; Basic White, Fresh Freesia & Soft Sea Foam CS; Memento Tuxedo Black & Versamark Inks; White EP; Fresh Freesia & Soft Sea Foam Blends Markers; Honeybee Blooms & Deckled Rectangles Dies; Honeybee Trinket; #SOS470.

Very pretty - Less is More #461 is running a pink and gold color challenge this week!
I have to say, I immediately thought of our Art Gallery set for this one - that layering flower is just too tempting to add gold to! I did some stamping and stamping off with Flirty Flamingo, and then added my gold heat-embossed detail stamp - so pretty! I decided to heat emboss my sentiment this round, too, and finished with some tiny gold pearls. So sweet!
Art Gallery Stamp Set; Basic White & Flirty Flamingo CS; Flirty Flamingo & Versamark Inks; Gold EP; Gold Pearls; #LIM461.
Yikes, this might be a tricky theme for me this week at CAS on Friday #223 - hexagons!
I followed a hunch and found that I do still have JUST enough scrap of our old See a Silhouette DSP, the sheet that had the fun hexagons - yay! I carefully trimmed my piece down to focus more on the yellows - you can see from my envelope flap that this was some pretty colorful stuff! The paper seemed like the perfect background for this cute trio of bees from our Honeybee Home set, and I love this simple sentiment with them, too! Quick to put together today - yay!
Honeybee Home Stamp Set; See a Silhouette DSP (retired); Basic White & Crushed Curry CS; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Daffodil Delight & Basic Black Blends Markers; Honeybee Blooms & Stitched Shapes (retired) Dies; Green Twine; Wonderful Gems; #CASOF223.
Such a fun sketch we have this week at Fab Friday #209!
I think I want to pull out one I haven't played with much yet - I think only once so far! This is Art Gallery, and it's a lovely suite of brushwork flowers, papers and GOLDING FLAKES! We'll be playing with those in our Messy Class next month, but here's a card I did of piecing the flowers and stems together - I love how it came out! I added a few sequins to pull out the highlights, but stuck pretty close to my three basic colors otherwise...
I can't wait to see YOUR creations for our sketch - meet you at the challenge!
Art Gallery Stamp Set; Fine Art Floral DSP; Whisper White, Calypso Coral & So Saffron CS; Bumblebee, Pear Pizzazz & Calypso Coral Inks; Floral Gallery Dies; Iridescent Sequins; #FabFri209.
