A*Muse Studio news and BLOG HOP

Hi there!  I am so excited today!  I'm betting you'd like to know why!

Well - I have jumped in and signed up to be an A*Muse Studio Creative Consultant!  WOOT WOOT!  I am very excited about this new opportunity - and today I want to share this with you!

I have a website - you can go HERE to look at it.  You can rder A*Muse Studio products directly from this site!  SUPER EXCITING!

And today we are having a blog hop - a few of the new Creative Consultants are participating and there's lots to see!  If you are hopping along, then you have come from Lori Barnett's blog.   And now it is time to see what I have in store.

Here is my card.



I used the tree image and sentiment from the stamp set Woodland Friends.  The clouds are from the stamp set Make a Scene.  All cardstock is A*Muse Studio (solid cardstock is colored on one side and white on the back - nice and easy to make a card base and have a white inside so that you can write on it).  The "grass" is A*Muse polka dot cardstock - and the tree is cut out of A*Muse gingham cardstock.  I LOVE doing paper piecing - which is what I did with the entire tree and the clouds.

The clouds were stamped on Sugar cardstock - and then colored in with the Quickie Glue Pen and covered in Diamond Glitter.  Oh how they SPAAAAHKLE!!!

I also used 1/4" Grosgrain Stitch Ribbon - the color is lime.  I love me some ribbon!

Now for some more fun:
