Charming Mason Jar

I love, love, love the mason jar stamp set that is available during March. I paired it with the awesome Charming Gardeners stamp set and  the result made me super happy. A mini banner of vellum cardstock with redline tape and lemon whip glitter strung on lemon whip baker's cording finishes off the look. Don't you just love it?!!! The small hole on the crop-a-dile makes the perfect sized hole for the baker's cording. Tombow Markers finished off the look of this happy card on blueberry cardstock.
I repeated the charming gardener flowers on the inside to finish off the card. No sentiments on this one so you can use it for a get well, a birthday, a friendship or thinking of you card to brighten someone's day.

Just Keep Swimming!

How about a swimmingly fun birthday card. It's a whale of a greeting in onyx polka dot, sugar and azul! :) Sealed with a fish, rollings seas background, anchors aweigh and birthdays inside and out all play very well together in this under the sea birthday card. A labels 1 spellbinders makes the perfect window for the whale to swim in, don't you agree?
A few more fishies swim through the inside to finish off the birthday greetings.

Happy Easter

This pretty egg was on sale during February's monthly specials and it was a big hit. It has both a solid and a pattern egg stamp. The pattern makes a fabulous background as well as a beautiful way to dress up your twill ribbon. The berry and shell inks and papers play well together with vanilla, don't you think?

The solid egg leaves a beautiful imprint on darker cardstock and fits perfectly in the matching die as shown on the inside of the card.
Here's the inside. Pretty and simple.

The great thing is that even though this egg set was part of the February collection, it's available to order until supplies are gone. www.amusestudio.com/seleise

Rule the World - Coffee Lover's blog hop


Here's another coffee card in honor of the Coffee Lover's blog hop. This sage and kraft card features the word art die set, script background and rule the world stamp sets and the March 2015 mason jar stamp set. I've got some of the retired coffee beans in the jar. A little vanilla twine finishes off the card. Isn't that fun?

It's been a super busy week as I coordinated a conference for my full-time job so haven't hopped yet but hope to get through the wonderful creations in the near future.

Have a wonderfully creative day!!!

Coffee makes everything possible!

It's time for another coffee lover's blog hop!! I loved the last one - so much creativity and so many different coffee cards. I can't wait to hop through all of them.

Here's my first entry into the fun. It's a glittery "to go" cup using A Muse Studio's Perk Up die set with the fabulous mermaid glitter. The sentiment is from Need to Venti. No matter the day of the week, coffee makes everything possible!

You can follow along with the hop on the hop pinterest board:

Four cards - 1 design layout

What happens when you take one simple card design idea and make it four different ways? This!

A 4-1/4" X 4-1/4" square layered on an A2 card. One has a ribbon/border accent. One has a die-cut shape out of the middle. One has an image popped up over a washi decorated border piece and one has a stamp collage on graph cardstock.

It's a great reminder that you can have variety even in simple designs and sometimes it's just good to go back to basics with simple stamping.
