a muse studio blog hop

If you are joining the blog hop, you should have arrived from Lianne's blog.  If not, you can start all the blog hopping fun at Krystie's blog.  There are a few prizes involved and not too many blog hop stops, so why not?!  (The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances of winning A Muse goodies.)  Even if you don't have time to comment, you'll get to see a variety of A Muse inspired cards.

I got really excited and made three cards!  This first one only utilizes the A Muse stamps (no other A Muse products), but I wanted a shabby chic, rock look.  Do you think I got it?


Next up, I wanted to do a white on white card and stick to only A Muse products.  Plus I wanted to challenge myself to decorate the inside of a card (I usually like to leave the insides completely blank).  What do you do with your card insides?
It's not much, but it's a step in the right direction.


Finally I wanted to make a kid card.  My son will have lots of friends turning five this spring and summer and what five year old doesn't love rocketships?!

I did the inside on this card too.  What do you think?
If you are ready to shop, my webstore is now open!!


Okay, now on to Lisa C's blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I have 6 more A Muse cards to share with you here, so start "following" and come on back to see the goodness.


Wait, one more thing!  Want a little treat?  Leave a comment and you'll be entered to win a prize (a yard of each of the deluxe kit's ribbon [1/4 in. stitched grosgrain in sky, french roast, & lime; 5/8 in. satin ribbon in cherry, orange, and bubblegum] ).  This contest is now closed.

Lisa said...

Great cards. I especially love the color combination you used in the blue and green one. I think you do wonderful work!!

Melissa said...

You have been busy! I love all the cards & especially the rocket ships on the card for the 5 year olds.

I LOVE your cards Kari! I have been putting a strip of leftover card stock strips inside my cards. My friend, Cindy Lyles, does that - that's where I learned to do that. Sometimes I take the image I worked on that is on the outside of the card and stamp it in a light shade ink on the inside.

Sue D said...

Great cards! I usually do what you did on the insides--stamp the sentiment and stamp something or use a paper strip.

I love the doing the insides with a little extra something. Haven't in a while, thanks for inspiring me to start doing so again. That rocket card is my favorite. It must have taken forever to line those babies up!

I love the green/blue combo and the trocket! Fantastic ideas!

Jayne said...

I love the guitar with the swirlies and I'm a fan of the botanicals. Great cards.

Princess said...

Seriously...not just one card...but several! Wow, what a treat. I adore all of them. I, too, rarely decorate the inside. But my husband keeps checking...he thinks all cards should have something inside. Really? Who has the time?! =)

Shawn Klinkner said...

Your cards are great! I especially liked how you decorated the insides of several of them as well - so cute! I love you CAS style - thanks for sharing your ideas and for the fun give-away!
