In My Beautiful Balloon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

In another Moxie Fab Challenge, hot air balloons! Flying in one is on my bucket list :D I used all A Muse Studio ingredients. Although not very innovative, but it's fun! I hope you likey!

I used my all time favorite patterned paper from A Muse Studio, the Cloud Paper! Along with Love Conquers All stamp set stamped in Ocean, Bubblegum, Orange, Grass, Cranberry A|S pigment inks them trimmed and placed on the card with 3-d pop dots. The sentiment is then stamped onto the sage dot paper border on the bottom.

Thanks for looking!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Here we are again, another awesome Tuesday Trigger! I love these because it gets me to work with ideas and colors that I don't normally put together. Here's no exception!

Here's the inspiration my project this week. I love the colors that this pic had. The reds and the aquas with the contrasting whites are amazing. And I love gerbera daisies!

Here's my interpretation of the trigger::

All materials used in making this card come from A Muse Studio. A Muse Stamp Set: Graphic Sunflower. Cardstock: Bahama,Bahama Damask, Cranberry, Sugar. Ink: Cranberry. Ribbon: Cherry Satin.
I think this is my new favorite color combo! Ha! Thanks for looking!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Another week another fabulous Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger! And get this, it's only Weds! Anyway, here's this week's inspirational image:

This image reminds me of my childhood, spending time in the country helping my Mom in her garden. Here's my attempt:

All of the paper, ink, and embellishments are from A Muse Studio. Using a latte A|S cardstock as my base, I took a square of Sugar c/s. Using the flower from A|S Good Fortune I stamped (fern, bubblegum pink, ocean inks)  then  punched out 1" squares of grass, shell, and bahama c/s. I affixed them onto the sugar square using mounting tape. Using my two favorite things from A Muse, buttons and the tiny flower ribbon to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I'm getting my mojo in gear. After a challenge here and blog hop last week, I've been trying to keep up this momentum! Made possible with all of the neat stamps, ink, paper and bling from A Muse. Here is my take on Farm Fresh.

 I concentrated on the colors of the challenge and came up with this. I'm am a sucker for anything floral, and will try and incorporate it in any way onto my projects. All materials used in this project is from A Muse Studio. Paper, Sugar, ocean, Bahama Blue damask shimmer. Ink, sky, orange, tux black. Orange satin ribbon. Very simple and easy!

Let's go to the Hop!

Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the Blog Hop so far! Let me introduce myself, my name is Lisa and I  love all things A Muse! Welcome to my site! To celebrate the new venture that is A Muse Studio, a special blog hop was orchestrated by our fearless leader Krystie! For those who aren't in the know, A Muse Studio is a brand new direct sales company. Selling what you say? Selling rubber stamps. But not just rubber stamps but paper, ribbon, ink...etc. Basically everything you have ever needed to make your own cards!

Anyway, this is a blog hop to further promote this wonderful company. Clicking on the link the another blog until the last will give you an idea of what is possible, if you use the products sold by A Muse Studio! Here is my example of a card using only items that can be found in the Amuse Studio catalog and inspiration guide:

Using the Stamps from the starter kit (they give you alot of starter stamps from different whole sets to give you an idea of the many cute things you can do). From a card base of Bermuda Blue (Just love that color!) I used a Bermuda Damask shimmer paper strip on the side. Sugar cardstock anchors the raised Ocean color C/S stamped with the Birdcage in sugar pigment ink. Using a craft knife I carefully cut a "door" out the cage and stamp the little bird in cranberry pigment ink. Cutting the Bermuda Blue Tiny Flower Ribbon into individual flowers and adding them to the corner.Finishing it off with some bling added to the musical notes in the other corner to balance out the top. Sentiment is then stamped in French Roast pigment ink, giving it a little softer look. Very simple, Very A Muse!
Here's your chance to win some Blog Candy! Just leave a comment before April 7th 3pm and you will get an assortment of Amuse goodies (including buttons, ribbons, paper,etc). And, if you place an order of 50.00 or morethrough my store , you will get an additional gift: free paper (asst colors)!
