summertime in seattle...


Summertime is Seattle.


This is a classic Seattle card:



sentiment by A Muse Art Stamps {now a•muse|studio}

Space Needle die by Savvy Stamps

card base by Impress Stamps


I have been really enjoying the new dies that I picked up from Impress...they are by Savvy and memory box...yet another local company.

My card is CAS but the Space Needle die gives it some life, dontcha think?!  I carefully trimmed down a glue dot to strategically add to the back of the needle to give it some umph.

I own well over 100+ A Muse wood mounted sentiments...I LOVE them....but this Seattle one is definitely one of my FAVs.  Here's how I store them:


I actually have 3 of those printer trays...LOVE them...I think I picked them up from a garage sale that Jennifer Pebbles had a long time ago.

  1. So much to 'wow' at. Wow- how many sentiment stamps?! Super wow for the printer trays. And really very 'wow' ( superbly bad grammar!) for your card. The pink stripes are really delicious. Just love the simplicity yet punchy-ness of the card ( see- I have my own vocab now!!). To have 'local' craft manufacturers ?- jealous!! Have a great day!

  5. That is a LOT of sentiment stamps, and a lot of A Muse - don't have any of them yet....I'm not sure we have enough space for all that. Your space must be pretty awesome. This card is great too, I love the base and how CAS it is!

  11. Wow, this card speaks to me in so many ways, and I've never even been to the West Coast. I don't think Wisconsin has any identifying factors, perhaps one of those nasty looking cheeseheads?
