Muse - Age is Just a Number ...

Greetings!

Time to play cards at Muse Challenge 194 where EK Gorman provided a silly/fun card for our inspirations. For my card I chose a fun/silly stamp and sentiment and a critter. My critter is adorned a little with some clear WOS on the spots, white markings and glaze on the yellow part of the eyes.

Hope you're having a fun kind of day!

MCV - From Santa

Greetings!


Time to play at MCV 72 where Cornelia has provided a beautiful tag for our inspirations. For my tag I chose to use colors, velum, white embossing.  Except for the DP adhered to the white tag base I decided to secure the velum and small tag just with the silver tie. A couple of small presents were stamped using a die ink the color of the DP onto the small tag. The ribbons were colored with a grey Copic marker then brushed with a few coats of clear WOS to give them a silvery look. A couple of clear gems were added to the centers of the bows for additional sparkle. 

Hope you're having a cheerful day.

Muse - You're the Coolest

Hi Everyone,

Time to play in some challenges ...

Muse Challenge 193 where Jenni Murray is the designer this week.  Her card is so fun. For my card I chose an animal friend (with the coolest pink dotted shorts), colors, split sentiment with one of the words in a larger font.

CASology 225 - cue word is soft.  The penguin is 'squeeze-ably' soft.  Also the snow slopes and melting ice cream bar fall into the category.

Inkspirational 121 - word prompt Chill.  Since the penquin is the 'coolest', I think my card falls within this category.

Hope you're having a great day.

Muse - Thank You

Hello Everyone!

Time to play cards at Muse Challenge #192 where Tracey shared a gorgeous CAS card for our inspirations. For my rendition I chose to use colors, leaf, strip, brown ink sentiment.

For the water-colored background I used MFT Art Abstract stamps and inked with three colors of Ranger Distress ink and spritzed with water. The leaf and strip were die cut from gold foil DP. The sentiment was stamped with Hampton Arts brown pigment ink and heat embossed with Hampton Arts clear embossing powder.  

Hope you're having a pleasant day.

Marilyn

OLS - Peace on Earth

Greetings!

Playing cards with One-Layer Simplicity #33 - Peace Be With You.  

For my card I stamped and heat embossed the dove and sentiment in white pigment ink and white embossing powder to provide some shine and texture. The olive branch was stamped using green distress ink. Lines in white and green with the blue of the card stock showing provide grounding.

Hope you're having a peaceful day.

MCV - Merry Christmas

Hello Friends!

Today, playing cards at Muse ChristmasVisions 70 where Chriss has provided a card with non-traditional Christmas colors for our inspirations.  For my card I used DP, buildings, snow slope, Christmas sentiment. The background patterned paper is black and copper foil and looks like a dot-to-dot (or star-to-star) star map. City buildings and snow slopes in off-white card stock were added. The sentiment was stamped in white and heat embossed using white EP.  A copper foil strip that matches the copper color in the DP was added at the bottom of the card.

Wish you a great day.
