Sorry for the long break in posts…I was off enjoying a week of vacation with my family and pre-planned all my posts but somehow didn’t schedule one properly so thus the big gap.  ugh!  Oh well – I’m back!  :)

I love how this card turned out.  It’s super simple and CAS but the colors really work together.  I colored in my “band” from A Muse Studio’s Hola Amigo stamp set with Copic markers and kept the color scheme pretty simple.   The strip of Petite Hexagon is Melon and the blue (almost looks like blue jean color) is Azul cardstock.  And yup, there are the new 4 mm sequins (onyx) again from A Muse Studio!

I’m off to do several loads of laundry, grocery shop and wait for a missing suitcase…ah…the joys of returning home.  NOT!  tee hee…

Last month I was so lucky to finally meet my online friend and fellow amuse studio consultant, Nance!  She came over and helped me prep for my Open House (she was the die cutting queen that day!) and also had time to help make some new samples.  I love this card she created – the addition of the blue panel is so unexpected and so perfect!

This week I’m featuring some cards made by Linda, the A Muse Studio CEO!  I call it “Starter Kit Fun” because she took the new sampler sets and made 3 very different cards.  A Muse Studio new consultants hit the ground running because they have everything they need to start stamping and making samples :)

a•muse|studio Sprinkled with Love

Last month I went to the Scrapbook Expo and got to see some really nice vendors and card samples.  One booth really knocked my socks off and I was surprised to see all the coloring done with Tombow markers.  I have almost the full collection by now … yes, and I have the big box of Prismacolored pencils and more than my share of copic markers!  But it inspired me to pull out my Tombow markers and give it a whirl.  I love how rich this donut from A Muse Studio’s Sprinkled with Love turned out!  {and no calories!  that’s the best part of course – tee hee}  The key, I found out, is to stamp on watercolor paper.  And now you know…

I had to get A Muse Studio’s new stamp set:  Welcome to the Neighborhood because it has the cutest little doxie, or “wiener dog”, as my daughter calls them!  This card was super easy and started in my scrap pile.  :)  I love that it is CAS but interesting with the different layers and pieces…I hope you like it too!
