Muse #125 - Fabulous Friend

Hi there

You may recall I recently shared the wonderful news that I am a happy new member of the Design Team at Muse.  Well today, it's my first time at being your Muse for the week!

I'm so excited at joining this team as Muse holds a very dear place in my heart.  Back in March 2013 it was on this challenge that I gained my very first recognition since I started blogging, for this card!  I also love this challenge as it's voted for by your fellow participants, so everyone gets their say :)

The idea at Muse is to use the Designer's card as the inspiration for your creation.  You can interpret it as you wish; using the colours, layout, techniques, etc.

Here's my card...


I stamped the dots on my card base and then masked this off to stamp the elements to create the doodle flowers.  I've seen lots of these quirky doodle flowers being used and I love them, these are from a stamp set by Woodware that I picked up at a craft show last month.  I then created the die cut sentiment strip.  This was actually a rectangle die but I used it to create a panel by just die cutting the edges.  I stamped the simple sentiment and adhered this flat to the card.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Woodware - Doodle a Flower; Clearly Besotted - Background Builder and A Little Sentimental
  • Ink: Versa Color - Lauren Leaf, Celadon, Raspberry, Heliotrope; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - In and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles

I'm linking up at these challenges:

Sweet Stampin' Challenge - No Designer Paper
613 Avenue Create - Challenge #133 - Anything Goes


I'd love to see how you interpret my design.  Lots of options here: colours, scribbly images, dotted panel, diagonal stitching...

Hope to see you there.

  19. Just wanted to thank you for your visit and tell you I had a really fun time caseing your fab card. I love case challenges as I think it's so fascinating to see all the variations of one simple card and how people pick inspiration from it.
