More A*MuseA*Palooza Challenges

Pin It


Here are a couple cards I made for the current challenges on the amuseapalooza site.

The first challenge was an inspiration challenge using a vera bradley handbag. I personally had never heard of vera but I rose to the challenge. I used the colors of the bag for inspiration instead of the design. The drum set seemed to pop in my head when I saw the bag. I used basic grey boxer dp to bring out the red, white, and blue. I don't know if I'm feeling the love with the finished result but it will do.

I enjoyed the second challenge from amy rysavy (last year's amuseapalooza ambassador). The layout challenge was to create a card with 4 circles. Since I'm longing for summer weather, the surf shorts stamp seemed perfect for the challenge. I used the swiss dots embossing folder to make the overall card 'pop'. I love how this card turned out!


Hope everyone has a good week! I'm very excited for this coming Wednesday. I'm taking a copic certification class and can't wait to learn everything I can about using these awesome pens. Should be lots o' fun!!
