Amusing Challenge winner

amuse studio rubber stamps

I made this card for my brother-in-law…it was late (as it is every year) so I hope he gets a kick out the sentiment.  It’s from one of the new birthday stamp sets from Amuse Studio.  I also stamped the Aspen Background with Pearl embossing powder which is one of my favorite from amuse studio.  And their snowman die is so cute – I loved adding just a silver of orange cardstock for some carrot noses.

A big thanks to Melissa for playing alone with my recipe challenge this week…I’m so glad she made bath salts too!  I made another huge batch on Friday morning for a dear friend going through chemo.  This time I tried a Frankincense/Lavender and Rosemary/Lavender blends…I hope she likes them!

Spotted these quick and easy (and totally cute!) Christmas tags over on Linda’s A Muse Studio blog.  I’d love having a stack of these ready to go as I’m busy wrapping up the presents that I am almost done buying!  :)

Here’s one of my tags from my recent tag class that I put to good use this weekend!  I love the combination of the silver sparkle, Cherry Chevron and pop of Lime green – all signature A Muse Studio, of course!  This tag also features one of the sentiments from the Mini Holiday Messages stamp set – which you can only get this month yet as part of a terrific kit.  Don’t delay!  I’m placing my last order today if you want to get in on it and perhaps save some money on shipping – I’ll advise you which is best!

a•muse|studio Mini Holiday Messages

Today’s card features my friend Cristena’s Sketch Challenge and one of her digis.  Any cat lover will appreciate this little cutie and you can find out more about Cristena’s Copic marker store and digis here at Copictopia.

I used all sorts of scraps of A Muse Studio cardstock and cut them down just under a 1 inch square size.  My image is colored with Copic markers and then I finished it off with a sentiment from A Muse Studio’s retired set:  Mini Holiday Messages.  The good news is this stamp set is part of a Holiday Tag Kit that is an unbelievable value.  I’ve had everyone who ordered it come back and tell me how happy they were with that purchase!  Don’t delay – it’s only available through Dec 31 or while supplies last.
