Muse 41 - Peace Times Two


Janet is our Guest Muse at Muse this week. I'm absolutely thrilled that her beautifully CAS card has inspired so many people in so many different ways, please go check out all the entries. If not today, do it on Monday, when you can vote for your top 3!

Here's Janet's card:



I focused on the peace theme, the tree and the blue and white colour scheme. I used a little peace symbol from Deadbeat Designs, and an unknown clear sentiment. There are stickles in the white portions of the peace symbol, for a little sparkle.

 Actually, that was the second card I made this challenge. Below is the first one I made.


Again, I focused on the colours and peace, but added a curve, a popped up panel and some more sparkle. I stamped the old A Muse snowflake on a panel and coloured it in with copics before covering it with double-sided tape and some glitter. I used a circle punch to cut a notch for the snowflake to peek through and  my new Papertrey sentiment.

I hope you'll join us (come on, you know you've got Christmas cards to make! lol!) before the deadline on Monday at 8 am EST, but if you can't, please participate by voting!

Two absolutely amazing cards. I love the peace symbols on the first and the glitter on the second.

One cool and funky, the other sparkley and shimmery ... what inspiration, Ardyth! Anita :)

Both are brilliant - love the peace tree, and the shimmery shaded snowflakes.

Joyce said...

These are both just fabulous. Love all the glitter. So cool how each peace sign is colored just a little bit differently on the first card.

Beverley said...

Loving both your creations, the colour combo is perfect too & I just love blue. Hugs Bev x

Bobby said...

I love both of these cards but thought surely you'd use the wreath stamp from PTI and color it blue. I guess that's more my (copy) style and not your creative one since you used it recently.

The second one absolutely stole my heart!

Love your elegant cards

....I struggle to make one good card and you, my amazingly talented friend, whip up these two beauties that are both jaw dropping fantastic!

The glitter is sooooo pretty - had me reading as fast as I could to find out how you did that! Thanks for the info.

The Peace card is totally 'cool man'. Love how you alternated the colors within the symbols!

Barb Ghig said...

Love them both, Ardyth! Such a fun design for your 'peace' signs, and the elegance of your 2nd card is stunning!

Karen M said...

Both of your cards are wonderful Ardyth - love the elegant tree and your snowflakes look amazing too - hugs xx

Greta said...

Oh for crying out loud! You are amazing, Ardyth! Always creative & perfectly implemented. I adore the second one!

Cheryl said...

Ardyth, Love, love, love your "peace tree"! I LOVE your take on the inspiration piece. Brilliant!

Cool idea with your graphic peace sign tree. But I really love the glitter on the snowflakes! I tried spraying a die cut with spray adhesive this week and covering it with glitter. It worked really well.

A peace sign ornament tree ... have never seen one of those!!! How do you think of these things?! Very inspirational.
