a-MUSE-ing LOVE...

Its snowing pretty much everyday and I feel cozy to be at home and do what I love :) So, I am back again to share with you what I created... also want to thank everyone who visit my blog time and again and leave their lovely comments, I'm thankful to those who consider my creativity worthy enough to be followed :) you all rock!!

I created two cards, my first card is focused on Valentine :) I was inspired by the colors at Color Q #227, by the sketch at Stamplorations bi-weekly challenge #5 and Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Have a Heart.
To make this I created a wave mask using a scrap card stock. I then inked the waves in the shades of the challenge (using Hero arts - Raspberry jam, Memento - Rose bud and Memento - Angel pink). I hand drew and fuzzy cut the boat, inked it up and adhered it on the card base with foam dots. Lastly, I stamped tiny stars (from Tid Bits Christmas stamp set purchased from a local craft store) and wrote the sentiment. The heart on the boat is a die cut sent by a dear friend :) 
 


My second card was created because I am a big fan of Vicki Dutcher and she is the MUSE for this week at Muse challenge #53 and since I always combine challenges I thought the colors at Curtain call Photo Inspiration - Cuppa Cocoa were perfect for my design idea :). and the topping of Chevron at Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes was another design element in my card. So here's my card...
To make this card, I stamped the Chevron (from CAS-ual Friday's Zig Zags). I die cut the leaves  from DCWV the Natural Matstock (using Nestabilities foliage dies). I cut out a circle using sizzix dies from a cork sheet. I the stamped and fuzzy cut the flowers with Hero arts chalk ink Cerulean (from PTI - Ruby reprise set), heart (from Recollections jar set). Stamped the sentiment (from paper sweeties) on the vellum. Added some brown dots with mt sharpie marker and adhered all the elements together on the card base.
