Studio Stampers Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Studio Stampers Blog Hop! You should have come from Lianna Vigil and your next stop after visiting me will be Angela Schellenberg.
Our big Amuse News is the 2011 Holiday Catalog! The new catalog is filled with great holiday products spanning from Halloween to Valentine’s Day.
It’s also amuseapalooza-fancybox-f
Not only are the products special they have hostess incentives too. Hostesses during A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA will earn a limited-edition hostess-only stamp set, AND receive even more hostess rewards than usual!

And now onto the Blog Hop….

Boo to you! Okay so Halloween isn’t exactly around the corner but the way time is flying it will be here before we know it. The Halloween stamp set I used is “Too Cute to Spook” it can be found here.

I kept it simple and clean. I got fancy on the spider web. I cut it out using Onyx cardstock and then used the Sakura quickie glue pen to line the web and covered it in flocking. It adds just enough texture and creepiness.

The circle die cut I used with an embossing mat to give the card some texture and a place for my stamps to stand out.

I used a random stamp technique on all the little squares. First I stamped a 3x3 cardstock piece and then cut into 1x1 inch pieces. A great way to make your own patterned paper and add interest. I chose to keep it “clean” but I could have easily inked up the edges and gave it a grungy feel.

August Studio Spotlight

Welcome to the A Muse Studio Spotlight!

Where each month, selected stamp sets will share the spotlight with a gorgeous color palette to create projects that showcase the versatility of paper crafting.

This month we're going back to school!

Add a smile to your child's lunchbox with these adorable lunchbox notes. We used The Mighty Jungle, Personal Stationery, and Past Due stamp sets to create a variety of fun notes!

A Muse Studio 11x17 Grid Paper is more than a fabulous work surface - it's great for projects too. At 11x17 inches, it makes a great book cover (especially stamped with the Rock Star stamp set)!

This studious little owl treat bag started with our 1/2 lb Brown Paper Bags and a variety of Nestabilities, topped off with a bit of stamping (Rock Star set was used on his tummy and School Days for the ruled sentiment)!

We also used A Muse Studio Felt (new in the Holiday Catalog!) and a variety of Nestabilities and A Muse Studio Exclusive dies to create an out-of-this-world robot backpack!

The School Days set is perfect for creating Teacher Appreciation gifts - like this notepad.

Nothing says "back to school" like a #2 pencil, but these are good enough to eat!

Contact me to learn more about these projects and the supplies we used to make them!
Spotlight Pricing on these five sets is good through 11:59pm Eastern time, September 14th, 2011
