A Muse Studio Chicks

A Muse Studio Chicks
I'm back today sharing some cute chicks from the A Muse Studio new release. logo I'm loving the Landscape Dies and decided to use the cloud shaped one to add a little dimension to the design.  I trimmed my die cut piece of Sugar cardstock to fit the corner of the card base.  The adorable little chicks are stamped on Lemon Whip cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut out and popped up beneath the stitched die cut with foam adhesive.  I colored their beaks with an orange Copic marker.  The sentiment was also stamped in black.  The chicks and sentiment are both from the new Sweet Easter set.  The stitched die cut was attached to the card base using foam adhesive. 2017 MarchMelissa6 Closeup WM This card would be a great friendship card, don't you think? That wraps up my marathon of ideas for this month's spring/Easter release!  Now I get to dig into next month's goodies and start brainstorming and designing!  You're going to love next month's new release!  Promise!   2017 SignatureContinue Reading...

A Muse Studio New Release Spring Chicks

A Muse Studio New Release Spring Chicks
Happy Monday!  I'm back with even more A Muse Studio inspiration today as a design team member and, this time, I'm using some of the adorable chicks included in the two new stamp sets!  I used the larger chick from the Happy Spring set and added two of the little chicks from the Sweet Easter set to create a trio of cuteness.  I simply stamped the chicks and then colored them using a little Neon Yellow Splash ink and a small Aqua Brush to lightly apply the color.  Then sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the one-layer design was done!  A quick design that can be used for a quick note or a spring/Easter occasion! amusestudio.com Be sure and check out all A Muse Studio has to offer!  The new release is so fun and perfect for spring/Easter projects you may be brainstorming! It's another cloudy day here today.  I tend to miss the sun after several days of gray overhead, but at least we have milder temperatures now and going outdoors is a bit more pleasant.   2017 SignatureContinue Reading...

A Muse Studio: Combining New & Older Stamps!

A Muse Studio:  Combining New & Older Stamps!
Happy first day of the week!  I'm back with more inspiration using more of the brand new A Muse Studio new release!  This time I combined images from a new set with one from an older set! The little chick is from a previously released set called Tiptoe Through the Tulips and coordinates so nicely with the newest sets!  I just couldn't resist combining them on a card!  The grass and leaf sprig are from the new Sweet Easter set.  I used Grass and Orange inks for these.  I colored the grass and flower centers (Neon Yellow ink) by simply dipping a watercolor brush in the ink and gently applying it to the images.The chick was stamped twice in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, once directly on the card base and again onto the new Bermuda Petite Gingham cardstock. 2017 MarchMelissa5 Closeup WM The gingham image was cut out and adhered to the image on the card base. The beak was colored with a Copic marker.  I stamped the sweet little sentiment on a rectangular piece of Sugar cardstock and attached it to the card base using foam adhesive for dimension.  To finish off the design, I freehanded some little bird footprints with a black marker. I have had so much fun with this new release and can't wait to share more inspiration tomorrow!  I hope you're having a good weekend! Have a relaxing Sunday! 2017 Signature SaveContinue Reading...
