Flower Notecards...Muse #5

I'm back...

Therese Calvird's squiggly, scribbly flower card, the inspiration for Muse Challenge #5, makes me happy.

 I absolutely love it! I also absolutely love my new Uniko stamps, Flower Power  #1, 2 and 3.

Playing time!!
My first card is for Muse, and the other three are 'just because.' Each card has a matchy-matchy envelope (add envelope punch board to the love list...), although I think the blue flower's envelope needs a make-over. I'll get on that...


Yes, the inked + outline images are a bit offset...not because I'm lousy at lining up the full-cover (I can't recall the more technical term for this kind of stamp. Yeesh!) and outline stamps (which, I am...), but because I *wanted* them off-kilter, following Therese's example (that's my story and I'm sticking with it...)

And the rest of the crew:





Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  2. Isn't that punch board addictive?!! Can't.get.enough!! Did you check out Jennifer McGuire's latest video on how to create card boxes with the punch board - totally brilliant! Especially for sets!!! These are cute as a button, and just so pretty! The colours - ink and paper - are delightful! And I see a little Wink of Stella sparkle too, which makes me giddy (another so-happy-to-have-discovered product!)!!! Love them all, Carol!! Eeek!!

  3. I think the word you're looking for (full cover) is solid? LOL! That happens to me all the time. I love it when they're slightly different from the outlines! This is a pretty, fresh take on this week's Muse. Thanks for joining us!
