Amusing Challenge – Anything Goes

This week’s theme and monthly prize

My husband and I made a quick road trip (not quick drive wise at 4 hours each way but quick in that it was just a one day visit!) to see my daughter at college over her Fall Break.  Running behind so let’s keep things fun and eash this week!   Our Amusing Challenge is Anything Goes.   Please share any stamped project you are working on this week – please no digital images.

Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  October’s winner will receive this featured stamp set from Amuse Studio, Fight Like a Girl, from me for free.  If you don’t want to wait – you can order your free set for just $3 shipping/handling here.  {You will also find a free calendar and digi kit download there too!}

This Week’s Inspiration

I know bees are typically a summer image but with these color scheme, I think it’s also a beautiful card for the fall!  I love Bee Happy from Amuse Studio and that embossed gold crown gives this clean and simple (CAS) card a little extra “umpff”.  When was the last time you used eyelets?  I love dragging out older supplies and using them again!

I stocked up on some more of these pearl stickers during Amuse Studio’s 10-10-10 sale this past week.  Make sure you are signed up to get my free newsletters and you won’t miss out on late breaking sales!  Merriest of All is from Amuse Studio’s September Collection but remains available for purchase while supplies last.

This last card is using one of my favorite techniques and now that Amuse Studio has started introducing dye inks – it’s even easier than ever to do.  This card may look familiar because it’s inspired by this set of cards I made last month.  The layout is super easy and lends itself well to lots of images but I love the sentiments from Holiday Cheer and all of the foliage images from Holiday Greenery.  These are both by Amuse Studio.  Just stamp your images and spritz lightly with water!
