MUSE Challenge #103

Hi blog friends!

Just a quick post to show you a card I made for a challenge being hosted by my incredibly talented online friend, Vicki Dutcher, for MUSE

I don't often have the time to play along in challenges, but I loved Vicki's card and thought I'd give it a go. 

Here's her cute card

My inspiration first came from the colors; red, black and white, then the heart and circles (see my dot background).  Finally that standout sentiment.  Such a great card by Vicki.
 I love this floating hearts die from Simon Says...I've had it for awhile and have never used it. 

You can find the details on playing along in the challenge at the MUSE Card Club

Thanks so much for stopping by.


Hello blog friends!!!  

It's time for another fun color challenge over at The House That Stamps Built!  I don't think you'll find this one too difficult, since it's almost Valentine's Day and most of us are thinking in pinks and reds these days.  

Here's the palette of colors for this challenge

Playing with these colors was easy, but deciding what stamps to use was so hard.....Repeat Impressions has so many fabulous stamps....I finally decided on the "Contain Yourself" set and had some fun with it.  If you're interested in getting some awesome RI stamps for yourself, you have an automatic 10% off if you use the code "rr10cw" when you order.  

The bg is actually layered.  I placed a piece of designer paper on the card base, and then took a piece of "woodgrain" card stock from Ellen Hutson and cut it into two pieces creating a peek-a-boo effect.  After stamping the jar image, RI# 9705-M I sponged it with DI "Worn Lipstick" in a gradient manner, fussie cut it, wrapped the top with gold thread and mounted it on the base layer.  I did the same with the tiny heart stamps, 9707-B, 9708-B and 9709-B.  The sentiment is RI# 2509-H "Love, Hugs". I punched out some tiny hearts with a punch I bought at Michaels for a dollar (I love those dollar deals).  

We hope you will come over to The House and play along with the challenge.  You might just win some of Repeat Impressions' awesome stamps.
