Whimsy and Stars Lucy

Isn't she sweet!? Lucy is her name, and she was one of my all time favorite stamps from The Angel Company. Now she is available as a digi image from Whimsy and Stars Studio! She is a joy to color, and the beauty of a digital image is you can make her any size that you would like to fit your project!! This is a "Chocolate Bar Card", a fun and easy project that makes a fun gift to give, or receive!
For the outside / cover you need a square piece of card stock, 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"  scored at 3" and 3 1/2". For the pocket you need another piece of card stock 8 3/8" x  2 3/4", scored on three sides at 1/2" and 1". Remove the corner pieces where the scoring intersects, fold on score lines to create your pocket, adhere to cover. I used double sided tape for added strength, those candy cars can be heavy! Decorate as you wish, (don't forget to make the inside cute too!) and add a chocolate bar.

I hope that you are having a fabulous day!!

One Layer

Okay, so one layer cards are not really my thing. If you have ever been here before you already know this, if you new, well , now you know too! So even though one layer is not in my normal comfort zone, I thought I would give it a shot, I do this on occasion, then go running right back to my layers! But this time I have to say I am quite pleased with how this card turned out!! I stamped and embossed the large flower from Marvelous Marigolds in white, onto the new Bellini card stock. Then I added some score lines with my score pal around the edge of my paper, which I sanded so they would pop. For the darker orange tones in my flower I feather blended very carefully with my Copic Markers, and it really came to 'life'. I think next time I would use my colored pencils instead, Not sure if the embossing will damage my marker or not...  The sentiment is from Wild Rose, and is also embossed in white. It would be fun to make these in a bunch of different colors, quick and easy too! All supplies for this card are from A Muse.
     What do you think?
We have a new catalog coming out soon (February 1st)! My friend Risa has been sending me sneak peeks from the A Muse National Conference this weekend in New Orleans, my wish list is LONG! My catalogs should be here next week sometime, if you would like one just let me know and I will set one aside for you.
I hope that you are having a fabulous weekend! :)

New Colors...

A Muse has a new catalog coming out at the end of this month! As a consultant I was able to order a few things to get started with. This card features one strip each of the new Venetian Palette solid card stocks. I paired them with Vanilla and French Roast card stock as well, and Toffee and French Roast inks. A bit of Brown Bakers Twine added the perfect finishing touch!
        What do you think?
I hope that you are having a wonderful day today! :)

Tweet Heart

Just a quick post today to share a new card. I have no idea where this last week went, time sure is flying by! For this card I used all A Muse products, I love, love, love, this gingham paper, and it comes in so many lovely colors too! The tree is from the set ""Tweet Heart". I stamped it in french roast ink first, then wiped off the leaves and added some fern ink, using the corner of my stamp pad. You can do this with markers too, but for me it was much faster this way, and I was happy with the results. Sentiment is from "Essential Sentiments".
I hope that you are having a fabulous weekend!

Whimsy and Stars Valentine

Happy New Year! Hope that you all have had a wonderful beginning to this next year. I wanted to share a card I made using one of Mabelle's new Valentine's images, so cute! This one is "Valentine Girly". I added the sentiment on the heart with one of my A Muse stamps. The image comes with the large heart plain, I love that 'cause it offers so many possibilities! It's hard to see in the photo, but I added some lovely glitter here and there, so she is wonderfully sparkly!
Mabelle just posted a Design Team Showcase on her blog, Whimsy and Stars Studio, I hope that you will pop over and take a look, so many adorable creations!
Have a great day!
