A MUSE or 2 plus 1


Hi there, back again for a second post today!

My first card for today is to enter at the Pretty Pink Posh
Watercolour Blog Hop and WOW! Talk about inspiration ...
you need to check out those stunning creations on Paulina's blog.

I couldn't wait to crack open some watercolours and play along so 
two of my cards include water and colour! I simply can't stop!

My card is also to enter over at Muse Card Club where the fabulous
Vicki Dutcher is the Muse, sadly her last post on the DT! 
 Vicki is a huge inspiration and will be missed enormously but hey ho ...
lots of travel awaits her so can't sniff at that for long!

Have a fabulous time Vicki and thanks for inspiring me to create.

Here's my card using the same set and colour way as Vicki's card and 
I'm also heading over to Addicted to CAS with it where the theme is 'butterfly'



Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Everything Changes - butterflies are heat embossed with Hero Arts white EP
then coloured using Stabilo Markers with water - I'm loving these pens
and thanks to Julia Altermann of Just one More card for introducing them.
The sentiment is from another Clearly Besotted set - Dandelion Dreams

Here's Vicki's Muse card




Still on the water-colour theme and the colours I've used fit here quite nicely 
with the colour palette 3 over at Make The Day Special Challenge blog 
So I'm heading there too and having had a 'naughty' spend there this month 
I couldn't wait to try out some new goodies.


Card Recipe:
Winnie & Walter: Mini Scenery - Multi Faceted stamp
heat-embossed in Hero Arts Clear EP, then water coloured using
Stabilo Marker pens. Sentiment is from Uniko Studio: Simply Said - Birthday
The watercolour panel is adhered with 3d foam for added dimension then placed
 on a stitched die-cut rectangle from Mama Elephant - Index card set




So having entered one Muse Card Challenge here's my card
for this week's Muse Christmas Visions which I'm pleased to say I've 'twisted' slightly,
 by adding some sparkle and bling to enter at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge too.

 Here's my card followed by Kimberley's and I've stuck with the white on white layered
 theme with a sprinkling of glamour dust along the torn edges and the trees are die-cut 
from glitter card then embellised with crystal bling gems from my stash!


Card Recipe:
Clearly besotted: Signature Christmas dies & Woodland Pals stamps & dies
plus sentiment from Sweet Little Sentiments
The frame is die-cut using MFT Die-namics pierced rectangle dies
and I've used a 'falling snow' embossing folder from Sheena Douglass






I hope you are still with me as that's quite a lengthy post
Thanks as always for calling in and I'd love your feedback if you get a minute.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new challenge for 
AAA Cards CAS Challenge so hope to catch you then.

  2. wow you did have a water colour moment or 2!! I love those little butterflies. I really am tempted to buy them but how many butterfly stamps do I really need! And adding some bling to your Xmas Muse card is a fab twist plus I like you used a square and not a circle x

  21. LOL! No one could make a card just like yours and Vicki's because those gorgeous butterflies are sold out everywhere! I love your bright, fresh colours! Your winter scene is very sweet - I like that you made it into a rectangle and used texture! So glad you joined us at Muse and Muse:ChristmasVisions this week, Sarah!
