a|s blog hop

Welcome to the a·muse|studio blog hop with my a muse "cousins".   We are all lucky to have Krystie as our upline lady.  If you are joining the blog hop, you should have arrived from Kellie Maggio's blog (I scrap, you scrap)

I was going for some clean and simple cards that are quick and easy to produce without depleting ones paper supply.  The first card is more on the elegant side, while the second card is a bit more bright and fun.  Which style do you lean towards when crafting?  Or maybe something different altogether?

celebrate in style
stamp: A Muse chandelier & "celebrate in style"
ink: VersaFine onyx black
other: scalloped scissors, Sparkles aquamarine

you are amazing
stamp: A Muse birdcage, chain, & "you are amazing"
ink: A Muse ocean & papaya; VersaFine onyx black
other: washi tape

Great cards today! I love the birdcage!

Kristen said...

Beautiful cards! I haven't had a chance to try the washi tape before (in fact, before yesterday, I don't think I'd ever seen it!). What a great pop of color. I love how the center of the bird cage is somewhat faded - is that intentional? And if so, how did you get that effect?!

Love both of your cards, so cute. I really like cards that are simple to make but look great! Thanks for the inspiration.

Great cards! I tend to make fun and cute cards unless I am making wedding/anniversary cards.

These are so classy looking. I am going to have to break down and get the celebrate in style set.

Kelly Spivey said...

Kari....LOVE both your cards! I am more of a bright color girl, but to me both your cards speak to me. Love to use black and white with punches of color and so these both are total beauties to me!

I now know I need the chandelier stamp set...enabler!! =)

Angie said...

Both cards are great! I love the elegance of the first card and the color combo on the second. I need to get my hands on the washi tape.

Kristie H said...

Kathy said...

Kari, you rocked it! I'm getting the chandelier on my next order ( I thought I didn't need but you've proved me wrong) and I'm so happy to see you embracing the washy tape :-)
