This Is It! Another *sneak peek*

This was one of the cards I designed especially for A*MUSE*A*PALOOZA a couple of months ago. It was shared today as the AP blog sneak peek. The two kids are just so much fun! And this card could not be any easier, let me tell you! I know that coloring with alcohol based markers means bleed through on the back of the cardstock, but with this one, I didn't have to measure or cut paper, which means, there is no waste! I love it when I can keep my card making "green." Plus, it also means it is FAST and oh-so-easy to mass produce. And who doesn't love easy?

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I am hoping to get some much needed thank you notes done this weekend, so I've got my iPod ready to rock with me. Does anyone else listen to music when they stamp? Just curious. I'd love to hear from any of you who'd like to share some music that they enjoy! I listen to all types of music, except the heavy metal sort, so please let me know.

card info: notecard, images, sentiment and ribbon by A Muse, Copic markers - lipstick red, blush, pinkish white, manganese blue, sand, sepia, new leaf.

This is super cute Elena! I love these little people on a one layer card! I *always* listen to music when I stamp! My favorite artist is Gavin DeGraw (he is like rock/pop and he is awesome!!) and I also really like The Fray, Lifehouse, Augustana, and I recently discovered Citizen Cope and I am digging on him right now! :)

Love the card and you're right when you say who doesn't love easy to mass produce.

I too listen to music when I stamp. Mostly I listen to what I refer to as chill music.

Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, Robin Thicke, John Legend, Joss Stone, Seal, Sarah McLachlan, Paolo Nutini, Michael Buble, Dave Matthews, Bob Marley.

Me, I'm totally addicted to Maroon 5. Not sure why....

I watch movies... but when I do listen to music, it's Jack Johnson or Dave Mathews!

I love the stamps and how you did it so cute and A Muse "simple" :) I don't usually listen to music when I'm stamping...I listen to music when I'm driving. Probably just cause I'm lazy and don't want to get up and pick a CD to put in the player! LOL! I listen to a variety - but usually grab something country...that is unless my daughter is with me and the is MUST be Kids Bop

Adorable card!!!

I also have my iPod on while I create or do anything for that matter, I listen to pretty much everything but country. One of my favorite newer artists is Sara Bareilles.

how do you keep the inks from NOT bleeding through?

I LOVE this design Elena! Soooo cute!
I listen to music sometimes when I stamp, especially when I need to get in the mood for a particular season (like Christmas in July - lol)!

Love the 1 layer and you being "green" Elena:). This is a beautifully done card with my 2 fav stamps from the new releases. Perfect for Christmas! TFS: Tinla
