CAS Thursday

a muse studio

Hey, another card set!  Yay!  So often I just make one card, painfully slow, at a time.  🙂  But after a recent hostess club, I decided to just stamp off the leftovers and finish up a few cards.  They are just one layer, CAS cards but would make a nice gift set or are handy to have in a pinch…I find Marvelous Marigolds is perfect for this since it has a nice variety of images and a saying.

My new order of a•muse studio inks arrived yesterday.  Yippee!  Look at all those lovely colors…I have a few more that I decided I “needed” and they will come next week.

The last day to take advantage of sale price on the stamp set above and the inks is TODAY!  You can find everything on sale HERE.  You can order directly from my website {button in sidebar} or I am happy to help you place your order…just send me an email.

Moxie Fab – Gingham Challenge

So I’ve started a few Moxie Fab challenges in the past and then the card pieces just sat there…in this case, I finished the card start to finish, interupted by only a few car trips to the pool and back.

This tree and saying just screamed out for paper piecing and the gingham papers from a•s are the perfect scale for this.  I was inspired by another card I’ve seen recently and I’ve been through my card inspiration file twice and just can’t find it to give proper credit.  woohoo!  I love it when a card comes together so wonderfully.  🙂

Amusing Challenges

It’s time for a sketch challenge this week at Amusing Challenges!

Each Sunday I’ll be having a different type challenge – but over a month you will see:  “use it”, theme, color or a sketch challenge.   This month’s prize for my random winner is 10 sheets of polka dot paper – each a different color!

Sketch #3

I think you will really be impressed by the variety from the design team this week!  This sketch lends itself to many different styles…

Juliet has a patriotic theme going on that is fitting for this Memorial Day weekend here in the USA…she used the set, Let Freedom Ring.

Cyndi stayed true to her style … she used a saying and the butterfly from the a•muse studio set, Little Peanut, as well as their polka dot paper, woodgrain embossing plate and butterflie dies.  And of course there is her trademark sparkle!

Because I love the look of the a•muse studio inks on their paper, I wanted to make that the center of my card.  I stamped Wild Rose {on sale this month!} and Ornate Elements randomly in lichen, squash and slate over buttercup paper…I had some fancy tissue paper that matched the squash color perfectly {yay!!} so I used my a•s butterfly dies and pearls to add the finishing touches.
