Muse 101 - Hearts in Blue


Marion's card for Muse this week is so pretty that I found it difficult not to just remake it!




I tried several different options, and ended up with this clean, graphic and playful card by using similar colours, the heart element (Simon Says Stamp heart dies) and my Creative Memories curvy cutter (retired). I skipped the heat embossing (I can never get my white embossing that clean!) and used negative cuts instead.

There's still time for you to play along - the deadline is Monday at 8 am EST. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Tuesday morning at 8. Voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon. Hope to see you there!

Fabulous! You seem to come up with unique and stunning creations and very little stamping. Always amazing though. Xx

I admire the way you can take a design and turn it entirely into your own style. You get right to the heart of the matter.

This is graphic and wonderful. And, I have that Creative Memories curvy cutter. Never occurred to me to actually USE it! It looks modern and in style again.
