More Simple Cards, A Muse Style

I am on a card making roll! I made these two cards in just a few minutes. I used the Big Block BL stamp to create the background using Cat Eye ink pads to create the grass and sky. I then used the new Long Grass stamp along with a few of my favorite A Muse mini stamps and Voila - Think Simple, Think A Muse!

Thinking of You


I love flowers! I have lots of gardens around my house and many indoor plants. I just love flowers!!! And I have many, many flower-themed stamps. Too many as one of my friends thinks :-).

Well, the latest A Muse release contained many beautiful flower images which of course I HAD to have!

I started this card with an ATC that I made for the New England A Muse Addicts get-together at Ink About It. I love the bold colors and it reminds me of all the gorgeous flowers that are just waiting to make an appearance!

Enjoy!

Think Simple, Think A Muse!

I have had this card in my head ever since I first saw the new A Muse Umbrella stamp that came out with the Beautiful Blooms and Brides release a few weeks ago.

The time was right to finally sit down and put it on paper and the impetus was the latest A Muse Lounge Challenge entitled "Think Simple, Think A Muse!".

The challenge was to make a simple card with no more than 3 layers, any tools and techniques.

I am pretty happy with the way it came out ~ the way I saw it in my head!

To the expectant parents...


Our friends Kathi and Devang are expecting their first child in September! I made this card, to let them know how happy we are for them.

We are so happy for them and cannot wait to meet their newest member of the family in a few months.

To keep it gender neutral I wanted to color the jammies in yellow and ended up flocking them with Fun Flock! I did use some pink and blue but not too much. The flock makes the jammies pop. Gotta love that flock!!!

I am happy with the way the card came out.

Congrats Kathi and Devang!

Happy Easter 2009

Forgive me blog readers, I have sinned. It has been too long since my last posting!

I have been making cards just not posting about them. A lot has been going on with life, as I am sure many others can sympathize. I finally made time to get my Easter card for this year done. It is not as involved as last years but just as cute! It is based on a design by Jenn Shurkus. Thanks Jenn! Gotta love those peeps! Peeps wars anyone???


Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!
