Muse #82


Hi Everyone,

I just got back from vacation - having missed my nightly card making session .... so I took some time this evening to get back into the swing of things! And what better than this weeks Muse challenge to start again. Bobby from Bits & Pieces made such a beautiful card - you can see it below.
And here is my take on it:


I liked the ombre coloring, which I kind of have here and the swirly pattern. The stamp I used is by Autumn Leaves - I have not used that set in  a while, although it is so pretty. I inked it up with a Kaleidocolor ink pad and spritzed the same colors around the stamp. Added some sequins, as you can see. 


Here is Bobby's gorgeous card:



And before I end I want to thank all of you for leaving me so many wonderful comments! I enjoyed them so much! I am still trying to catch up, but I try to visit you to over the next couple of days.

I am also adding them to the current Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes

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
