Clean and simple (CAS) cards are certainly popular. Here's one from the Penny Black blog from Therese Schaffer.

From the Spellbinders' blog, this is a very nice graduation card that Darsie Bruno designed. I like the design concept and I can think of other background embossing designs that could be used as well. What I especially like is how it becomes a gift too with the rolled up money "bow".

This RubberMoon Stamps blog posting shows a way to clean your Copic markers and play at the same time. I'm too anal with my markers to let them become too messy but I admit there are times they become marked up. Now I know I can 'play' some more while cleaning them up, instead of wasting that color from just wiping it away.

Speaking of Copic markers, here is a tutorial blog posting on coloring characters and confections! There are many times I just don't know how to approach the face and body of a 'people stamp design. This posting helps tremendously.

From the Millsrepco blog, this is a very nice card by our own Millsrepco Rep, Maggie Crawford. I really like how she used a partial cut of the background die.

Many of you are very familiar with Mary Ann Moss; she's the one who started the Remains of the Day journal a few years back and has since offered more online journal classes. She has a new one that begins July 1 and I think it will appeal to a wider audience, many of whom are part of the Art 'n Soul family and friends world.

Today, IMAGINE Crafts had a double blog hop posting . . . one with Dreamweaver Stencils and another one with Altered Pages. These two projects are from Penny Ward, Artist-in-Residence for IMAGINE Crafts. I know you're going to love both cards.
