Hang in There! { A Muse Hammock }


Yes, this is the exact same Basic Grey Oh Baby! paper that I used for my Mary Engelbreit card on Sunday. It was still laying here on my craft table and the colors just happened to coordinate with my image. Certainly, finding the *right* paper isn't always that easy! :) The yellow strip and the blue piece behind the image are both from the same line of Basic Grey. I embossed the yellow with the Cuttlebug "Spots and Dots" folder.

For this card, I've actually used 4 different stamps. The palm tree/hammock is by A Muse. The "hang in there" tag is by Studio G, the little smiley sunshine and cloud are from a small acrylic set by Stampendous. ($1 Michaels stamps) My puffy "cloud" is actually cupcake frosting. :) How's that for being creative? I colored the images with prismacolor pencils and doodled around the edge with a fine black Zig pen.

Hang in There! and Happy Stamping!
Smiles,
Pam :)
