Oh, I loved the colors and design of Laurie Willison- the designer for MUSE Card Club # 29 this week. I usually try to pick a part of the card that inspires me but I loved so many on her card this week- the colors, the panel flush with the bottom edge, the embossed panel, and the rounded edge on one corner…oh, and the flowers.
STAMPS: SU Happy Day, SU Madison Avenue
INK: SU Real Red, SU Certainly Celery (retired)
PAPER: SU Real Red, SU Certainly Celery, SU Whisper White, SU Bashful Blue (retired)

Here is Laurie’s Card:
This week, MUSE #18 Card Club designer- Marion Vagg- brings us a bright and colorful card.
My mind immediately thought of the SAB 2013 Sycamore Street DSP and the coordinating Madison Avenue stamp set. I created this fun card using the SU Teeny Tiny Wishes- a must have for sentiments! How wonderful that the smallest Floral Framelits die cuts out the flower perfectly. I also love how you can adjust the size of your SU Word Window Punch by attaching a sticky note and sliding the cut-out in farther and punching it again.
STAMPS: SU Madison Avenue (SAB 2013), SU Teeny Tiny Wishes

PAPER: SU Island Indigo, SU Rich Razzleberry, SU Sycamore Street DSP, SU Whisper White, SU Pool Party

When I mentioned in my post yesterday that I felt I would be using the SAB stamp set Madison Avenue a lot in the future…I did not think it would be so soon in the future…LOL. The new Muse Club Challenge #2 card just screamed to me…Madison Avenue with its flower and Sycamore Street DSP with its vibrant colors. I was also inspired by the shape of the card so I used SU Labels Collection to create the top border. I admit this isn’t normally a style of card- boldly whimsical- that I usually make, and was thankful to Suzanne Dahlberg for her inspiration and helping me to move out of my comfort zone.
AND…once again- this Sycamore Street DSP, buttons, and stamp set are all freebies during STAMPIN’ UP Sale-A-Bration that runs until March 22. Yeah!
Check out how STAMPIN’ UP keeps up with what is trending in decor…
I absolutely adore soft, earthy colors like Soft Suede and Crumb Cake so Dynamic Duos #37 was right up my alley this week. I was equally happy to use another STAMPIN’ UP Sale-A-Bration 2013 stamp set called Madison Avenue. I initially looked at this set more like a collection of stamps that could be used with other stamp sets rather than a set in and of itself. However, I have been seeing some amazing creations in the card world using this set. I think I will be using it a lot in the future especially since it was FREE!! And you could pick this set OR the Vine Street Embossing Folder used on my card with a minimum $50 order. Gotta love Sale-A-Bration with its free items;)
I also used my new Designer Builder Brads from the Spring Catalog- oh my, LOVE them!! And there are 16 designer brads in the package with 20 epoxy bubbles for only $6.95. Imagine what you can do with them. Comment on this post if you have some neat ideas…
