A Muse Spring Challenge

Spring Stationary

What the heck is "Spring Stationary?!" It's me doing Jennie's "Spring is in the Air" challenge over on the A Muse Lounge. The challenge is to create something inspired by Spring using A Muse or Saltbox Studio stamps. Springy colors, springy stamps, anything that makes you think of Spring.

Sounds easy enough...right...but ya still wonderin' where the "Stationary" part comes in? OK...since I'm SURE you're dying to know....I created my card using a set from A Muse called "Personal Stationary." NO WAY!! A card from that set? Yep...shur-did! That set is 'da bomb diggity!! It has so many cool little things on it! There are 28 stamps packed in there! You can do all sorts of fun things with it. Check it out here & see! It's one of those HTH sets 4sure!

Now I'm gonna tell ya all about my Springy Stationary card :)



All the ingredients for this card are totally Spring! The base cardstock is called Kitchen Grass. The orange cardstock is called Bumble Bee. The green ink is called Meadow. The orange ink is called Marigold. How's THAT for Springy ;) Springy colors AND Springy words...that little flower reminds me of tiny little Spring flowers blooming.


Of course I HAD to add glitter for some Spring bling -- and a wonderful little piece of Spring green stitched ribbon. The Threading Water scalloped punch fits right in there with the theme...cause flowers have to have water -- right :)

Wellllll...I likey...you likey?
