Fun with Fusion, Muse, and ATCAS

I have a couple of new cards to show you today.

WooHoo!!!  I am so excited that I was able to combine several challenges when I made this first card!!  Can you believe it!!  The first card is for the following challenges:

1.  Fusion Card Challenge                                 2.  Muse


I selected the colors from the Muse challenge, the layout and the flowers from the Fusion challenge, and the sentiment for the ATCAS challenge.  I cut chevrons from a white panel cut slightly smaller than the card base.  I colored three stripes with green and purple Copics on another piece of card stock.  I put some double sided tape over the colored stripes and covered them with some glamour dust.  I used pop dots to adhere the chevrons over the glittery stripes.  The flowers are die cut and stamped (Sweet n Sassy die and stamps), and colored with the purple Copic. I added some leaves that were cut (Sizzix die) from white card stock and colored with Copics. I stamped the sentiment from HA in black before popping that layer on with pop dots.  


This card also fits the Fusion challenge, but I decided that I liked the first one better.  For this card, I made my chevrons by cutting 1 inch squares then cutting them in half horizontally and aligning them across the card to resemble a chevron.  I adhered them with pop dots and coated all the chevron with some crystal lacquer.  The "flowers" are cut with a Lifestyles die.  I added clear bling to the centers of each flower and then colored the bling centers with colored sharpies.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...

Hugs!

Both your cards are wonderful, but it's those glittery chevrons that totally had my eye and so totally pinned!

What is glamour dust? Must. Get! Love the subtle sparkle! I love how you combined Fusion with Muse to get that fantastic look. And I love that sentiment. Love the 'hot' version, too. Very clever how you made your chevrons out of triangles. You have to look at it for a minute to get it, but it's CLEVER! Thanks for playing along with Muse!

I like both cards but especially the first one. The colors are so beautiful. I haven't gotten any chevron stamps or dies yet, but may just have to.

Both cards are really beautiful, Susan! I'm loving the sparkle on the first one and your clever design on the second one...Awesome work!

Stunning! And three challenges combined, one of which is a double whammy challenge so I think that counts as four! Go you! ;)

I really like the sparkle of the chevrons, it really dresses this card up, you know?! Perfect! :)

Sharyn Polesel said...

Beautiful card! I think I'm going to have to get some glamour dust too! It sure adds a beautiful sparkle. Great colors!

Kate said...

Lovely cards, I love the chevrons - especially the first one, the way you cut out the front card and added glimmer dusted strips behind - so elegant

Deni(se) said...

Love this card. It has several great take-aways to use on my future cards. Perfect colors and the cutting through of the chevron pattern and backing it with pastel sparkled paper ... swoon.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Popping back to congratulate you, Susan, for winning HM over at MUSE for your delicious blue/green glamour-dusted creation!!

How about a youtube video on this technique for all of us visual learners?

I just love, love your cards. With my new purchase of the chevron punch I will TRY to come up with a creation like yours, but it will not be as fantastic! Thanks for sharing your inspirational card making!
