Spooky and Sweet...

Can you believe that tomorrow is the first day of Autumn??! This whole year has just flown by, it's crazy! Today I have a sweet little card featuring "Halloween Girl" from Whimsy and Stars Studio. This is one of my favorite images, it reminds me of my daughter when she was little. She loved dress up and had lots of costumes, one was a really cute little witch outfit.
I added some hot pink to my Halloween colors, just to change things up a bit. She is colored with Copic Markers. I used several scrap pieces that were on my desk for this card, A Muse Studio Grape, Orange, Orange Petite Stripe, and Berry card stocks. I stamped The polka dots on the Orange paper with Berry ink using "Polka Dots Patterns", also from A Muse Studio. I stamped the tickets with "That's The Ticket" and die cut them with the matching die.
Hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend, Thanks for stopping by! :)

Good Morning! It is a beautiful sunny day here in my neck of the woods, it is going to be a warm one today! I have another little project to share with you using  this cutie pie, Amelie, from Whimsy and Stars Studio. I love these images so much and was thrilled when Mabelle asked me to be a guest designer this month!  This is a tiny shadow box from Seven Gypsies that I have had in my stash of stuff just waiting to be used, and what better way to use it than with this sweet little girl! I colored her with Copic markers, to go with this My Minds Eye paper that I have also been hording I mean collecting! This sweet image can be found in Mabelle's etsy store HERE. You might also want to take a peek at the new Whimsy and Stars Studio Stamps blog HERE.
I was having so much fun coloring that I couldn't stop, here is a card that I made using this same image but in different colors.
Have a great day, and thank you for stopping by!

Don't Miss Out!

There is still time to take advantage of this months A Muse Studio Spotlight Specials! I made this card using two of the sets from the Spotlight Special, Harlequin Back Ground and Under The Big Top. I used our fun Ticket Die  and some of the new Grapefruit Petite Stripe Card Stock to create those cute tickets. These are my favorite colors right now, I am just loving them! Berry, Cherry, and Mermaid.
 This little treat bag uses all the same colors and stamp sets, so cute and fun! Inside I added a little bag of Cracker Jacks. I think this would be perfect for a favor bag at a circus themed birthday party!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! Just a quick post today, as I seem to always be on the run these days, busy, busy, busy.  It's a bright and beautiful day here where I live, and I am going to spend it with my Mom! Hope it is lovely in your neck of the woods, and you get to spend the day with someone you love.
I have always loved tea, and tea cups. I even have a little collection of them. So when I saw this set Aren't You Sweet, from A Muse Studio, I knew it would be mine! I Paired it with Grapefruit Petite Polka Dot and Petite Stripe Card Stocks. I also used Mod Back Grounds 1 for the tiny polka dots that the tea cup is setting on. Petite stripe paper was cut using our new Fish Tail Die set, this is the smaller of the two sizes.I am so happy with how this card turned out, what do you think? I would love you to leave me a comment and let me know...

Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by! :)

Good Morning!

Good Morning! It is a bright, sunny, beautiful morning in my neighborhood. I think Spring may be just around the corner! I am sharing a card with you today that I made using some new stamps and dies from the brand new A Muse Studio 2013 Catalog. The nest is from a lovely new set called "You're Too Kind", and there are dies that go with this set as well!! I also used one of our new signature colors, Mermaid. I stamped the Venetian Background on Pistachio card stock in Mermaid ink. Then I added the main panel of Mermaid Petite Pin Stripe card stock, also new, backed with solid Mermaid card stock. My sentiment for this card is actually from a fall set called "Give Thanks". The nest was colored with Copic markers, and I added a touch of toffee twine to finish it off.

The new A Muse Catalog is beautiful! It is full of new exciting goodies:
31 new stamp sets, 11 with dies to match! 
3 new signature colors: Mermaid, Berry, and Apple
Petite Pin Stripe card stock in 10 colors
Fresh new color palette for the Petite Polka Dot, and Chevron card stocks:
Bermuda, Cherry, Grapefruit, Mermaid, Navy, Onyx, Orange, Papaya, Seattle, and Wasabi
Splash Ink now in 15 colors!!
That is just a few of the fun new things. Let me know if you would like one of our new catalogs, or if you would like to have a fun creative evening with friends, or a creative class!
You can see the new catalog on line HERE , or shop 24/7 in my online store HERE. If you have an order of $150 or more, please let me place your order for you, as you qualify for hostess rewards!!

Owl Love You Forever!

My Daughter loves owls, so I made her a special little Valentine Owl! I love how it turned out, so CUTE!! I used Blush and Bubblegum A Muse Studio Felts with some white wool felt that I had. I used a large oval Nestability die to cut to owl body. I used the same die to cut the head the right shape, then I used the leftover pieces for the wings! I used nestie circles for all the pieces to make the eyes. Then a pink and white strip cut with my Scallop Edge Die, layered together for the tummy. Eyes, beak and tummy were glued on with fabric glue, Stitched it all together with embroidery floss, then added a paper straw with a little stamped paper flag on top, CUTE! I hope that she will like it. I think I am going to have to make more of these in different colors!
What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!!

Happy New Year!

Can you believe it is January 2013?  I can't, but  I am excited to be starting a whole new year!! I have some new goals and things I would like to do this next year, how about you? Mostly though I am just hoping for a smooth uneventful year. "Boring" and "Ordinary" are at the top of my list for things I would like to experience this year! Not really, but a little ordinary would be so very, very nice!!
I've been crafting a bit, trying to get my creative mojo going again. It's been nice to create just for the fun of it. I thought I would share this fun wine bottle decoration I made to other day, it could also be used as a door hanger. A sweet little addition to a Valentine gifty.
All supplies are from A Muse Studio:
Paper: Seattle Petite Polka Dot, Blush, and Bubble Gum Shimmer Card Stocks.
Stamps: Script Background, At First Sight, Mad For Plaids (on the ribbon!)
Other: Seattle Bakers Cording, Vanilla 7/8" twill, Scallop Border Die Set, Heart Trio Die set, Rosette Die Set,  3 1/2" Doilies.

Hope that you are having a wonderful start to this New Year!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Please leave me a comment, I would love to hear what you think of this project...
