Last weeks challenge was to stamp on anything but paper, so I chose some children's wood dominos that I got at the Dollar Store! The back surface was smooth, and provided a fabulous stamping surface!

I sooo love this new cute little set that will be coming out in the new catalog, February 1st.....called Greetings Earthling. I have had a lot of fun with the "Beam Me Up" stamp!

I stamped the spaceship, stars and "Beam Me Up" saying with StazOn Jet Black. On the stars I used blue star twinkle stickers n the center of each star. For the starship I colored it in with Copic markers. I made a hole in the domino with my Cropodile, went through it easy peasy!! If you don't have you, you totally need one for putting holes in all kinds of things! I then threaded some bermuda stitch ribbon through the hole for a cute outer space tag. This tag would be adorable on a scrapbook page......or as a keychain!

If you like this adorable set, you can order it starting February 1st. That is the day the new catalog goes on line. You are so going to love all the new exciting stamp sets, dies and yummy new colors and papers in this new catalog...stay tuned here for more sneak peeks......

Meanwhile, don't forget the retiring lists. If there is something you have been contemplating, check the retiring lists to make sure that your favorite is not retiring, because once it's gone, it's gone!

BEAM ME UP.......but not before you check out this new stamp set.......

There is intelligent life down here though, and it loves to stamp!!!!

Isn't this set just way too cute? I love the possibilities for this cute new set, Greetings Earthlings!! I made this cute little card with the stars, spaceship and Beam Me Up stamps, using lots and lots of glitter on the stars. Don't you love the new cardstock colors? This card uses Pistachio and Grape. The new catalog comes out February 1st, so start making your wish list out so you will be ready to order!!

I stamped the space ship on sugar card stock with Versafine Onyx Black and then colored it in with Tombow markers 173 (lime) and 451 (bermuda) I cut it out with a Marvy punch (blue)  scalloped oval. Using the Quickie Glue Pen, I outlined the oval and dipped it in diamond glitter. I cut a large oval shape from the grape card stock and mounted the space ship on the grape with 3D foam tape. I positioned it on my card, adhering with Tombow adhesive. Next I stamped the stars across the top of the card using Encore Metallic Silver ink, then used the Quickie Glue Pen to glitter up the stars. For the finishing touch I stamped the Beam Me Up saying in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Quick and easy, and super cute!!

If you would like to place an order you can email me or place an order directly on my website.

HAPPY 2012!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Welcome to a new year of stamping adventures, with lots of exciting and fabulous A Muse|Studio goodness to come!

I will be continuing with the Consultant Blog Challenges, and this weeks challenge is to use Embossing Powder. I love the white embossing powder and have really put it to work with Christmas cards....but now that Christmas is over it's time to write the Thank You I came up with a a very simple thank you using 2 different stamp sets....I love the clean simplicity of the design, and couldn't resist making more than one in a different color......I loved the tree from the Loving Memories stamp set, and paired it up with the Thank You from the Hand Scripted set. I punched a circle with the darker color and then stamped and embossed the tree with white embossing powder. I then stamped the Thank You on the lighter card base, and again, embossed with the white embossing powder. I tied the satin ribbon around the end with a knot, and attached the circle using a 3D foam square. Clean and simple!
