Season's Tweetings

I think this is my favorite of all of my designs for the A Muse Studio October release!  The birds and branch are colored with Copics and then die cut and adhered over the aspen background with 3D foam adhesive.  This is a 4" square card that is scored on the left.

A Muse Studio October Release Day!



Woohoo!  It's release day and the A Muse Studio October collection is now available.  I have two cards for you today!  On this first card, I stamped the trees in lilypad and grass dye inks and then die-cut them.  The grass card base is four-bar size and scored on the left.  Here's a close-up:

On this next card, I stamped the trees and then adhered the peace die cut below them.  Tip: if you use a larger clear block, you can fit all three trees on it and stamp them all at once.  
Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the A Muse Studio blog for the complete reveal.  I have more to share from this release, so stay tuned.

A Muse Studio October Sneak Peek Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the A Muse Studio October collection sneak peeks!  Today I am so excited to share with you our new "peace" die!  I have wanted a peace word die for at least a year and am so happy that it finally exists!  For my card, I die cut the snow on a post-it note and masked the sugar white cardstock.  Then I spritzed with Winter Sky splash.  "Peace" is die cut using Cobalt cardstock.  The card base is a four-bar sized cobalt card (3.5" x 5") that is scored on the left side.  

Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to visit the A Muse Studio blog for more sneak peeks.  You'll be able to see the whole collection tomorrow!  I have more cards to share from this release, so stay tuned.

A Muse Studio October Sneak Peek Day 2


It's Day 2 of the A Muse Studio October Collection sneak peeks!  My card today features the new "Pining For You" stamp set.  Wintery trees are my favorite images to use on my holiday cards, so I absolutely *love* this set!  The matching dies made it easy to cut out the trees after stamping and gave them a snowy effect.  The background is winter sky cardstock with a piece of sugar adhered to the bottom for the snow.  Here is a close-up:

The blush card base is A2 and scored at the top.  Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to visit the A Muse Studio blog for more sneak peeks and a chance to win.  I'll have another sneak peek for you tomorrow!

A Muse Studio October Sneak Peek Day 1


Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the A Muse Studio October Collection.  This release includes fun wintery holiday sets!  Today I am featuring a peek at the Season's Tweetings stamp set.  This stamp set is so fun and will be available on Friday!  For my design, the background and snow were created by masking a section of sugar cardstock with a post-it note and then spritzing winter sky Splash ink.  I stamped the deer on sugar cardstock, then colored with Copics and die cut using the matching die set.  A red twinkle sticker gave him a glowing red nose.  Here's a close-up:



The cherry stripe card base is A2 size and is scored at the top.  Be sure to visit the A Muse Studio instagram for a chance to win!  And check out the A Muse Studio blog to see more sneak peeks from the team.  I'll have another sneak peek for you tomorrow!

Pennant Birthday

My husband's grandmother turns 95 next week, so I worked on some fun birthday cards today. The A Muse Studio mini banner dies made the banners super easy!  My son likes the first one (above) better and my daughter likes the second one (below) better.  What's your vote?

Mama Rabbit


As the Design Team Coordinator for A Muse Studio, I am so excited for our new team - Melissa, Ilina, Emily, and Lisa.  Be sure to check out their awesome work on the A Muse Studio blog!  I have some inspiration for you from the new release which is available TODAY!

The big bunny is from the new "Happy Spring" stamp set and the small bunny is from the "Sweet Easter" set.  As soon as I saw these sets, I knew I wanted to put them together to make a bunny family.  I die cut a tiny egg from the bunny die set and then the pink bow is die cut from the Easter basket die set.  This card also features new grass dye ink.  Stay tuned, I have another design to share from the new release!
