A Muse Studio Blog Hop

Welcome to October's A Muse Studio Consultant Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Linda's blog.  If not, why not start at the beginning with Karen?   This month's theme is get well cards or cards of support and encouragement to tie in with A Muse's Stamp Out Breast Cancer promotion.  I have two cards to share with you today.  For the first card, I featured A Muse's Sunny Side of Life stamp set and the Butterfly Trio dies.  For the second card, I used Clean and Simple Stamping's sketch also featured in the previous post.  For this card, I used flowers instead of butterflies.

Happy Fall!  I have finally had a little time to create again.  One of my new favorite products is A Muse Studio's Splash!  It is a quick-drying spray ink with a fabulous matte finish.  I used it here in Cherry for some bookmarks that I made as thank-yous for my customers.  If you have ordered something from me lately and haven't gotten one - don't worry - it's in the mail (or will be soon:)).  This project was inspired by a very similar one made by my friend Su.  I used the Nevermore set by A Muse.  It includes a background stamp perfectly sized for bookmarks imprinted with passages from The Raven as well as the clock and raven shown below.  Both bookmarks actually used Vanilla paper, but were photographed in different lighting conditions. 

All supplies by A Muse Studio unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Nevermore
Paper: Onyx, Vanilla
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Slate (top photo)
Accessories: Cherry Splash!, Cherry satin ribbon, cherry/white baker's twine, jumbo eyelet from SU!, black eyelet from my stash

Here is a picture of the entire Nevermore stamp set:

You may also view it on page 4 of the Amuse Studio Holiday Catalog linked here.  Happy stamping, and stayed tuned for some exciting offers from A Muse Studio during the month of October.

A Muse Studio New Catalog Blog Hop!

Welcome to this month's A Muse Studio consultant blog hop!  Today I am joining some fellow consultants in sharing brand new items from A Muse Studio's 2012 catalog, which you can peruse here or by clicking the picture on the right.  You should have arrived here from Rita's blog.  If not, please go back to the beginning of the hop at Karen's blog to see all the new A Muse goodness.

My card uses the new Floral Duet set.   I wanted some larger flowers on which I could practice my Copic coloring.  This set is great because it includes two sizes of flowers in both an outline and solid design.  If you don't feel like coloring, you don't have to.:) My card also features one of the yummy new colors in the Venetian Palette - Lido.  I stamped and colored these flowers and then cut them out and popped them up on this wonderful cardstock.

All supplies by A Muse Studio.
Stamps: Floral Duet, Essential Sentiments
Paper: Lido solid, Lido patterned, Orange
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Onyx/White Baker's Twine, Copic markers

The Floral Duet stamp set and Lido cardstock are both featured in this month's A Muse Studio spotlight.  I've been coloring madly, so look for more samples later.  Meanwhile, next on the hop is Tracey Jean.  In case you get lost on the way, a list of all the participants is below.  Be sure to leave them some love.  Happy Stamping!
