{Clean And Simple Wedding Cards}

 Today I am playing along with the Paper Crafts Wedding Cards Gallery Challenge and today  I am posting two cards I made for the challenge!  My first card features LOTS of A Muse Studios goodness, stamps, ink, and ribbon. I know I keep saying this but in the words of Susan Opel creative editor of Paper Crafts Magazine I puffy love Amuse Studios pigment ink, believe, just try it once and you will be hooked! I put in an order and will be receiving some A Muse happy mail next week and I can't wait to show ya! For this card I used stamps from the A Muse sets "Beautiful Botanicals 2" and "Essential Sentiments". I shadow stamped the leaf "frond" in two pigment inks, French Roast, and Latte. I accented the image with a few rhinestone sparklies, and finished off the card with A Muse french roast stitched ribbon. I love this simple card, and it would be an easy one to make several of. For me it is nice to take a break from cards filled with embellishments and layers.

 My next card features stamps from PaperTrey Ink and the same A Muse sentiment from my first card. I used the PTI Anniversary set from 2008. Love all of the pattern elements of this set. I stamped the image several times to create the patterned paper using A Muse Studios Currant pigment ink.  I accented the centers with rhinestones. I used my 100 yard role of offray vanilla satin ribbon. I will never run out of this ribbon. LOL. I bought it at the Offray ribbon outlet in Hagerstown MD for $2. Craziness. I added a nice scalloped border with my Martha Stewart punch and finished off the card with the sentiment stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Again, another simple card that would be easy to duplicate. I hope I inspire you to create your own clean and simple cards! Today I am playing along with a handful of challenges:
