A Touch of Autumn

I know that I have been sharing a lot of Christmas creations lately, but I haven't totally skipped Autumn. Here are a couple of cards I made to celebrate this beautiful time of year. We have been having beautiful days and cool crisp nights, and all the leaves are turning such lovely colors right now. This first card uses Bounty of the Season and Mad About Plaids, from A Muse Studios. Yes, I am still on a plaid kick, I just can't help myself, look at those gorgeous fall colors!I colored the wheat with Copic markers, then added a little sparkle with my glitter pen.
This card was inspired by THIS card, created by Krystie Lee. I just added my own personal style and this is what I ended up with. Thanks for the inspiration Krystie! This card features another A Muse set called "Fall Foliage" which is one of the set included in the A Muse Studio Spotlight Special this month! It also showcases our beautiful  "Script Background" stamp, I am loving using all these different background stamps again, didn't realize how much I have missed them!

I hope that you are having a beautiful Autumn day where ever you are! Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it and all the sweet comments that are left!! :)

Dashing Through The Snow...

 Just a quick post today to share another Christmas card using my A Muse Studio stamps and papers! This image is from the "A Christmas Carol" set, I just love the vintage feel of these images. The paper that I used is my new favorite color combo, Bermuda, Eucalyptus, with a touch of Cranberry, and in this case a little Candy Cane Stripe. I colored the image with Copic Markers and then added a little Diamond Glitter to make my snow sparkle. Cranberry Buttons are also from A Muse. All of these items can be found in my A Muse store HERE.
I hope that you are having a wonderful Autumn weekend, we went to the pumpkin patch yesterday on a school field trip, so much fun! I am just loving the beautiful Fall weather we have been having too.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Washi Tape Tree

Who knew how fun some fancy masking tape in different colors could be?! I was curious about this Washi tape I kept hearing about, and since A Muse carries such a wonderful variety of it I thought I would give it a try.  It is such fun stuff! It is a low tack type of masking tape made in Japan, so it can easily be repositioned. This can be a really good thing, ask me how I know! :) I like how transparent and subtle it is too. This lovely green stripe Washi Tape is from the "winter" collection. I think I like it!
What do you think?

Wishing you a wonderful day! So glad you stopped by!!

Mad About Plaid

I have always loved plaids, but now that I can make my own plaid in any color that I like, for any project I want, I am crazy for plaid! It's true. I am loving this Mad About Plaid set!! I am still making lots of samples for my Open Houses this week, so many ideas, so little time!! This card also features the set A Christmas Carol, love the vintage feel. Sentiment is from Essential Sentiments, card stocks are Sage and Fern.
I loved how this card turned out so much I decided to make another using all the same ingredients!
I did use a different set for the sentiment, Contemporary Greetings, on this one. I don't know what it is about this set, it just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Of course paired with the plaid it is even better, IMHO!!
:) All of these items are from A Muse Studio, you can check any of them out in my online store too.

So, what do you think?

Have a Lovely day!! So glad you stopped by!
