A Graphic Card for the Muse

Lyndal made a real stunning card for the Muse challenge, her card is below. I took my all time favorite TCW stencil to create this graphic card. The vertical stripes remind me about the trees and the coloring - well that is straight from Lyndals card. I added Paper Candy dots and colored them with Copics.




I like those things - much cheaper than enamel dots and you can color them really easily in any color to fit your project. The only drawback is, that they are relatively large and only come in one size.....
The sentiment is Papertrey - Happy Trails
Here is Lyndal's card:


I am also adding this card to

Great interpretation of the Muse card. It is very graphic and different and I'm glad you explained how you saw the tree trunks in the design. It made me look at it entirely differently. Great job.

The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
