Muse #91

Afternoon, just, and thanks for calling around.

Warning this post contains an overload of photos!

I saw the latest challenge over at Muse this week and simply had to play along.
This week the Guest Muse, the talented Michele Ferguson,  has asked for not one card but three using one sheet of design paper. Well , that was a bit of an ask as I couldn't choose which paper from my copious stash to use! A little bit of retail therapy even came into the mix, but in the end I decided to use a sheet of paper that came free with a magazine which I squirreled away, too good to use!!! I think its a Do Crafts Forever Friends paper from Simply Cards and Papercrafts.

Here they all are.


Actually it is a set of four as those sharp eyed followers will recognize the same paper in a card I shared on Friday. I was inspired by this card to carry on and create a set. I used my scene dies as the focus for my trio.

Here is a closer look at the three cards




This one uses a new Marianne die I bought when I had a trip to LOTV in Farsley with my good friend Di and a freebie sentiment.



The second is a shaker card made using another freebie sentiment and my Calm Countryside die. I've certainly got my monies worth out of this little die.


Here is a close up of the beads I used.

The last of my trio is based on that Friday design but I used my Country Landscape die and coloured one of the cottages with Copics.


The top was embossed with the snow folder and I stuck a punched circle for the moon together with  a branch die cut. 
I had toyed with using my Chistmas candle die but decided to stick with a landscape theme.

I shall enter these cards in the following challenges

  2. Julie, what a wonderful set of cards! Love the colour combo, and I think, the 1st one with big trees is the best! How did you make white snow on the dark sky?
