Muse221 - Thanks, Jenni

Here's my card for Jenni's final challenge at Muse. She gave us this inspiration:

But, really, I feel like I should be thanking her - I have so enjoyed having her as a member of the Muse DT over the last year or so and we will miss her inspiration for sure!

I focused on Jenni's:
-square card
-thank you theme

IB61 - You're the Best

I love blue flowers - they're so unexpected and somehow they seem to just glow!  And while I had my Mondo Hydrangea out for yesterday's card, I made a card for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things:

But, as often happens, I had some trouble making up my mind about which direction to go. I ended up with two other cards as well!

You just know that this one appeals to my CAS, minimal mind. I used a stencil and Distress Inks.

I love this big flower stencil (had it forever and I have no idea who made it - I was thinking it might be Hero Arts, but I can't find it) and I used Distress Inks.

I focused on the flowers and the window.

MCV81 - Merry Christmas

Here's my next card for this month's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Chriss has given us this neighbourly inspiration:

I focused on Chriss':
-pattern of stamping around the edge of the card
-centred black sentiment

I used my MISTI and placed the stamp in one spot before inking and stamping then turning my panel 3 times. Then I moved the stamp, and repeated with a different colour. Again, and again, until I had used all 4 colours. I added Stickles to the snowflakes for some sparkle.

I used:
-GinaK inks

EH Pinsights, FS541 - Love You

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Kelly aka Technique_Freak.

I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Kelly's:
-colourful sentiment with black add-on
-sentiment as focal point
-use of florals

I changed
- fewer layers
-die cut main sentiment instead of stamping
-stamped flowers on the die cut main sentiment

I also used Ellen Hutson's Pin-Sights board for my colour inspiration:


I focused on the photo of the row of flowers at the top left. I stamped Mondo Hydrangea and embossed it with gold ep. I used Prima Confections and a green Zig to watercolour. I then die cut it and added the black portion of the sentiment.
