A Muse Studio Sneak Peek Day 3

And I'm back with day 3 of sneak peek week for A Muse Studio.  This also happens to be the last day for peeks, because tomorrow the entire release goes live for your shopping pleasure! YAY!!!  Today we are showing the Dear Friend Stamp Set and the new Paper Tapes...

This card is great for today, because it just so happens to feature both new products!  To create my background I layered strips of the Paper Tape diagonally before die cutting it with the Postage Stamps Die Set.  I had stamped the floral and leaf images from the Dear Friend Set with Grass Pigment Ink and Hibiscus Pigment Ink.  I added some cute Cherry Blossom Sequins, and Creative Candy Pretty Pearls in Sugar.

Make sure you head of to the A Muse Studio Blog for more peeks at these new products, and you might find a giveaway too!

Happy Crafting!

A Muse Studio Sneak Peeks Day 2

I'm back, woot woot!  And it is time to share some more sneaks of another new set making it's debut in the A Muse Studio Store this Friday!  Today's set is called Banner Sentiments, and it is exactly what you think it is...

The Banner Sentiment set also has a matching die set, and three different banner styles for displaying the sentiments.  On the card up above I went for a more masculine feel with a mix of the Melon, Mermaid and Grass colors.

Supplies Used: MelonMermaid and Grass Cardstocks, Hexagon Background Set Stitched Circle Windows Die Set, Banner Sentiment Set and Die Set.

I have also created a mini plant holder of sorts with the smaller sentiment floral banner image...

Isn't it so cute and little?!  For this little holder I've used the Tiny Popcorn Box Die, Banner and Sentiments Stamp Set and Die, Creative Candy Pretty Pearls: White, Petite Gingham in Bubble Gum Cardstock, and Grosgrain Stitch Ribbon in Bubblegum.

Make sure you head over to the A Muse Studio Blog for more peeks and a giveaway!

A Muse Studio Release Sneak Peeks Day 1

It's sneak peek time with new A Muse Studio Products that will be available this Friday, yay!!!!!  I love when I get to share peeks at their new products, and this month will have floral lovers dancing (hint hint!).  Today we are sharing peeks at the new set called Summer Blooms.  This set also has matching dies!

In this first card I chose to mix the Summer Bloom Set with the Hexagon Background and Bee Happy Stamp Sets.  To do something different I created an Easel card, and love the way the inside hexagon image fits perfectly as a resting point for the front panel.  I also went completely girly and made everything pink!

Full Supply List for this card includes: Petite Gingham Bubblegum, Hexagon Background, Bee Happy Stamp Set, Cotton Candy Dye Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Creative Candy Pretty Pearls: White, Summer Blooms Stamp Set and Dies.

And here is one more card featuring the Summer Blooms Stamp Set...

This card shows lots of the floral images available in this set as well as the sentiment.  I loved watercoloring this panel of stamped flowers, and decided to make the sentiment pop by stamping it onto Grass Cardstock.

Full Supplies: Cotton Candy Cardstock, Grass Cardstock,  Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Creative Candy Pretty Pearls White, Foam adhesive, Summer Blooms Stamp Set.

Make sure you head over to the A Muse Studio Blog to see more peeks at this new set and for a chance to win the new set for yourself!

MarkerPOP Challenge #123

Hi!  It's time for a new challenge on the MarkerPOP blog, and this month there is an awesome prize pack that includes the Penny Black Summer Fun Paper Pad, Avery Elle's Cool Treats Stamp Set, Sunny Studios Perfect Popsicle Set and Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick and Broken China.  I'm totally jealous!  So I hope you'll play along!  Here is the inspiration picture...

And here is how I was inspired...

I went super CAS with this card and simply layered die cut panels up with various levels of foam adhesive.  I stamped, colored and added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard on these cute little stars from the So Jelly Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn.  Something I like about this card is that it can be used for multiple occasions.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope to see you join either of the challenges this month on the MarkerPOP Blog!

Happy Crafting!

Fourth of July Decor with ADORNit!

As time is just flying by I figured I might as well try to be a little ahead of the game.  Every year I wish I had a little more 4th of July decor, but the holiday seems to always sneak up on me and catch me by surprise and without any new decor.  But not this year folks!  I've already created a cute sign that I can't wait to hang up!  With a mix of an ADORNit Bare Wood Plaque, one of their Watercolor Coloring Book Minis, paint, and glitter I was good to go...

Isn't it just so fun?!  I love how quickly I was able to put this together.  To create this decor piece I painted the whole front of the plaque with white paint.  Once this was dry I used washi tape to mask off some stripes.  I then went over the stripes with red paint and left this to dry.  While this was drying I began watercoloring the sweet July Calendar Girl page.  Next, I went over the plaque with some glitter and a star stencil.  The edges were painted with blue, and once again set off to the side to dry.  After everything was set I was able to glue on a ribbon for hanging and viola!

I hope I've inspired you a little with what you can do with a blank canvas!
