Muse #137

A very Happy Monday,

I seem to be a bit hooked on the challenges at Muse Card Club at the moment. I think what I like is that each week the cards are so different that I find it quite inspiring to try something new.

This week the very talented Michele challenged us to use patterned paper. Like Michele I am a CAS designer and using DSP is, well, a real challenge for me! However encouraged by her use of adding her own little touch of stamping to a card covered in DSP, I gave it go.

Here is what I came up with:


I got this paper from Virginia when I met up with her this year and I have been wanting to use it for ages. I knew I wanted to add something to the centre but just wasn't sure what. A hunt through my stash and I came across this fun Uniko explosion stamp. I stamped this and fussy cut it out, coloured it and stamped the 'wow' in the centre. I used the closet colours I had to match the paper. I added the explosion stamp onto the card using foam pads and curled the edges to give more dimension. This was really fun to make.

I know this is really different for me but I like it and think it will be good for a congratulations card.

Here is Michele's card:

  3. I love the Muse challenges, even though I'm not able to join every time I go over and check all the cards, there's so much inspiration to be found there and I ponder about a possible design myself, even if don't necessarily have time to make one for the challenge. I know using dsp is out if your comfort zone, but is think you made a great card, different but still with a touch of Sandie to it.
