Muse #77

I have not played with the Muse in a while - there is just too many challenges and too much other schtuff to do......but I am back with one card. Now you may wonder how I got inspired to do this, but honestly I did get inspired by Marion's cute card!


What I really wanted is an animal hanging upside down, instead of being perched on a branch, so I rummaged through my supplies and only found a monkey and a spider.....I settled for the spider. Since I reversed the animal, I also reversed the sentiment, stamping it on top. I only did a partial frame with Washi tape. 



So, here you have it - totally inspired!!!!!



Supplies: Spiders - Studio G, web - Craftsmart, sentiment - Martha Stewart.
I am also linking this up with the July Linky Party for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card in the a2zscrapbooking Store.

And remember - Halloween is coming sooner than Christmas - eeeeek!

Hello Cornelia!! I love how your spider is hanging from the top of the card. So cute!!

Your spider looks so bored, maybe because it has nothing to do until Halloween? ;)
I am a last minute kind of girl and will probably do my Halloween cards a week before...

Brilliant, can't bear spiders but from this distance he looks very cute :D The BFG stamps are available on Create and Craft.TV but I bought mine from the Glitterpot here in the UK, not sure if you can get them over there, Good Luck :D xx

Great idea to warn us all about Halloween coming before Christmas, Cornelia! Talk about "eeeekk!" I totally forgot about that! And how fun it was for me to come visit today and open your blog to find Gary on your card!! (I could write the stories and you could illustrate them!!) Hope you're having a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

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
