Sending Lots of Love

Hi stampers!
I am back today with set of 4 cards. When I saw the new designer series paper Whole Lot of Lovely, I knew I had to have it, along with the coordinating set. I made few cards using my MISTI tool. It was the only way I could replicate these cards. 
What I did first I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of velum ( 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") and layered it on top of same size whisper white panel where I was going to stamp my images. The vellum piece served me as a guide where to position my images. After I stamped all the images, I lined up the sentiment on the top of the vellum, in order to be at the same position as we "imagined" and stamped the sentiment on all 4 cards using Versagine black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. When I was done I die cut the images using the oval framelits and adhered onto the piece of dsp and then adhered to Basic Black card base.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop

Hi stampers! 
I have fun summery card for you today. I decided to participate in the coffee lovers blog hop and I was inspired by Wendy from Sugar Pea Designs to make this card. I used 2 new Stampin' Up! sets : Fabulous Flamingo and Coffee cafe (along with coordinating dies). I stamped the cups first with Soft suede, next I masked around the cups and stamped the flamingoes (this way you don't see lines outside of the cups. Then stamped the leaves and the whipper cream and straws. I die cut everything and assembled my card.

Don't have SU! items, you can totoally recreate this card using 2 Hero Arts sets: Coffee cup tags and Color Layering Flamingo.

A Muse Studio Sneak Peek Day #3 - Dear Friend

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to day #3 of A Muse studio sneak peeks. Today I am featuring the Dear Friend stamp set, that I actually combined with couple sentiments from the Banner Sentiments set. I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves using Cotton Candy, Marigold and Grass die inks. Next I stamped the sentiments on sugar card stock panels. Adhered to card bases (cotton candy and grass) and added pearls and sequins. Pretty easy, but I LOVE how they turned out! 

Make sure you visit the A Muse studio blog ( I have another card up on the A Muse Blog), and the rest of the Design team blogs for more sneak peeks!

A Muse Studio Sneak Peek Day 2 - Banner Sentiments

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to Day #2 of the A Muse studio sneak peeks for the new release. Today I am showcasing the new set Banner sentiments. This set coordinates with the already released set Be Brave and the coordinating dies, however the banners are blank, so you can add any sentiment you like. 
For my card I repeatedly stamped the "you are awesome" sentiment with Bermuda Dye ink on panel from sugar card stock. Then stamped the banner and the circle label and then the sentiments inside of them. I colored with copics and die cut them. Next I assembled my card and voila ;)

A Muse Studio July Sneak Peeks Day 1 - Summer Blooms

Hi Stampers!
I am so sorry for the silence. Well, not really. We were out of town on family vacation, in Florida. So I took a break from creating and posting, besides the regular scheduled posts last week.
We are back now and I am trying to get back to regular daily routines and back to reality. 

And it's actually that time of the month to start sharing A Muse Studio sneak peeks for the July release.
Today I am showcasing the new set called Summer Blooms (the July release will be available for purchase on Friday). I stamped the images with versamark ink on watercolor paper, then embossed with white embossing powder. In the next step I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush to color them. 
Using the coordinating dies I die cut the flowers and leaves and set them aside. 
I die cut 3 Hello sentiments from Onyx card stock and adhered them together to get an dimensional element. 
For my background. I scribbled couple of the blue Zig markers onto aluminum foils and added some water from my water brush, then I smushed around in it my watercolor paper panel. Let it dry. 
Once dry arranged the flower elements and the sentiment die cut. Next using a fun foam I adhered to Onyx card base. To finish off your card adhere few Onyx sequins.
