AMuse me today!

For as long as I've been doing this paper craft stuff, there's been one thing that has always held true. I work with companies whose products I ADORE. Honestly, if I'm talking about it here, it's out of passion, not obligation. That being said, I'm a stamp lover, pretty much equal opportunity - clear, rubber, mounted, unmounted. I love them.

All of that is a little precursor to the fact that I don't work with A Muse Artstamps - but oh good golly, do I love them! So, today is AMuse Me day, because I've been having fun this week!

Here's a card I created for Glenda's Random AMusing Challenge this week. The challenge was to create a card using the color that is toughest for you. I don't have much trouble with green as an accent, but to do it monochromatically is a challenge for me, so I created this fun one:



The reason I realized that I like green as an accent (but not ALL green) is due in part to this week's Clean And Simple Challenge at SplitCoast. This challenge was to use blue and green, and a neutral accent if needed. This was the second card I did for this challenge, the first one was more elegant (and with less white). But here's the fun one I did:



Beav has a birthday party tonight, so I created this for him to give his buddy. This stamp has paid for itself many times over by the sheer number of 'tween boy cards I've made with it. (Highly recommend it if you have boys the same age!) Beav's favorite color is orange, so that's where that came into play.



And two for the Spring challenge on the A Muse board - love the warm feel of both of these!





I hope these AMuse you as much as they AMuse me, lol. (Sorry - too hard to resist! You're all so good to put up with me!) Be well.

What great cards, Jenn! I am partial to the wheely girl because yellow is my favorite color, yet I hardly use it for cards.

All your cards are great! I love that green dp on the swing girl card. They *AMuse* me too! :) Too funny.

awesome cards--I love how you used those cute stamps!

That green & White PP in your first card is my latest obsession--I bought sheets of every color and I am using the sweet white and blue for my SIL's baby announcements.
