A Muse Studio New Release Washi Tape Inspiration

A Muse Studio New Release Washi Tape Inspiration
By now, you've probably seen all the new goodies over in the A Muse Studio online store!  I hope you've grabbed the things you want, but if you haven't, head on over and do so!  Your spring and Easter projects are waiting! Today, I thought I'd share a super simple card using the fantastic new Stitched Eggs Dies all dressed up with some of the new Spring Floral Washi Tape!  I covered some Sugar (white) cardstock with the washi tape before die cutting it using three different sized stitched eggs.  I layered these together on the main panel with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the Sweet Easter set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Little twinkle dots (rhinestones) were added to the eggs in green and orange.  The assembled main panel was attached to the card base using foam adhesive for dimension. 2017 MelissaMarch2 Closeup WM Such a simple, quick card to make and I love that it uses washi tape!  No fussing over coloring! Be sure and check out the rest of the design team blogs if you have time!  We're all sharing new release inspiration every day through next week, so you'll have lots of fun ideas to see! 2017 SignatureContinue Reading...

A Muse Studio New Release Day!

A Muse Studio New Release Day!
The day is finally here!  The A Muse Studio new release is now available! I have to say, my favorite from the release has to be the new Bunny Candy Package!  There are so many possibilities for this!  I dressed mine up with the pretty new cardstocks, googly eyes and a little pearl sticker for a tail!  Inside, I put a Hershey's Chocolate Nugget which is the perfect rectangular shape and size.  The nose and mouth are selectively stamped from the bunny in the (new release) Happy Spring set. 2017 MarchMelissa10 Closeup2 WM I also made a little treat bag to go with these cute critters using the little Lunch Sack Die.  I embellished it with a die cut Stitched Egg (new release ) and delicate, mini die cut flower and added a little Bermuda pearl sticker to the flower center.  The egg is watercolored using Splash Color Spray. 2017 MarchMelissa10 Closefup WM The simple sentiment is from the (new release) Sweet Easter set & is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I filled it with green crinkle paper grass and additional treats. I hope this gives you some ideas for simple spring/Easter gift ideas!  I'm thinking teachers and classmates might just need a few of these in a variety of colors and patterns!  I may even try adding some of the adorable Bunny Bums (cotton tails) that are available in the store to the back of the bunnies!  So cute! Have fun shopping in the online store and making the items on your wish list a reality!  You can find the new release here.  If you just can't narrow it down and want the entire new release, you can purchase the I Want It All Bundle!  Enjoy spring's arrival and stop back often as I'll be back with even more new release inspiration in the days ahead! 2017 SignatureContinue Reading...

CASology MELT

CASology MELT
It's Tuesday and time for a new cue word over at CASology!  This week, we're going for a little melting action in the gallery to celebrate the arrival of spring on the calendar! Week 241 - Melt My thoughts turned toward things that tend to make your heart melt.  For me, it's hugs from little ones!  I simply watercolored the main panel and added a little shimmer with a Heidi Swapp Color Shine spritz before adding a simple die cut sentiment (STAMPlorations Hugs Word Die).  The sentiment was adhered to the main panel using foam adhesive to add a little dimension.  The layered main panel was also adhered to the card base with foam dots. 2017 Mar21 MELT Closeup   I hope you'll join in the fun this week and go leave some blog love on the design team members' blogs!  They've created some fantastic inspiration again this week!

Hero Arts Hoppy Birthday

Hero Arts Hoppy Birthday
Happy Monday!  We're starting the week with snow.  Winter isn't over yet, after all! I am personally done with winter, so have started digging spring themed things out of my stash!  This Paper Layering Rabbit Die from Hero Arts grabbed my attention and I made a quick white on white design! I simply die cut the pop up portion of the die set and then added the simple sentiment (from the March My Monthly Hero Kit) in white!  The main panel is die cut with a stitched rectangle die to create a little frame. I hope your week is starting off on the right foot!  It's spring break here, so I'm not planning on a whole lot of crafty time in the studio this week!

Have a marvelous Monday!

Love Note

Love Note
Happy Monday!  After a full weekend, I'm hoping to get a little time in the craft room to work on some cards I need to make.  It's been a bit harder to convince myself to go down and work on paper crafting when the weather outside has been absolutely gorgeous for this time of year!  Sixty degrees (Farenheit) in February?!  I'll take it! I had whipped up this card around Valentine's Day, but haven't shared it until now because the recipient happens to be active in the paper crafting community! The heart die cut is Simon Says Stamp's Heart of Flowers Wafer Die and the main panel was die cut with one of their Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The simple sentiment is from the Poppy Stamps Love Note set.  I watercolored the background panel with red and turquoise paint and spritzed it with Heidi Swapp's White Color Shine Spray for a little shimmer.  The heart panel is popped up over the watercoloring with foam dots.  I love that you can vary the background with this pretty die simply by using different colors and techniques!  I can't wait to play with it more! It looks like it's going to be a rainy day today, so my wish may come true and I'll find myself making crafty messes here in a little bit!  First, coffee.

Have a marvelous Monday!
