Do You Project Life or Snapbook?

Snap Card Birthday CardA Muse Studio Snap Cards
Do you Project Life or Snapbook? I am new to this style of scrapbooking – but I love it. A Muse Studio has teamed up with Simple Stories and is offering their Snap line of cards, stickers, letters, parts and pieces and more! Even if you don’t scrapbook you will love these bright beautifully designed cards and accessories for all of your paper crafts. These are two “snappy birthday” cards that I made with the same ‘recipe’ and stamp set but different Snap Cards. Aren’t these FUN? If you are attending my Cooking Badge Camp Wanna Stamp Class (in the Chicago Area) on September 9th, you will get to try this ‘recipe’ to make your own unique “snappy birthday” card!

2014 A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog Preview

A Muse Studio Sugar Skulls
I have been so busy with Camp Wanna Stamp and preparing for the St. Charles Scrapbook Expo Show – I am sorry it’s been a bit quiet around here. I thought I would pop in with a fun A Muse Studio 2014 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek. This card features the brand new A Muse Studio Sugar Skulls stamp set. It’s one of the 8 new Halloween stamp sets that A Muse Studio is offering in the new holiday catalog. What do you think? Creepy good, yes?
Let me tell you about the background on this card. If you read my blog you will most likely recognize the pattern in the background – it’s the A Muse Studio Half Circle Papel Picado Die. Like with the Splash! ink backgrounds I used a Clear Cardstock stencil to mask. Instead of spraying Splash Ink I used VersaMark ink. I just applied the ink direct to paper over the stencil. Lift the stencil and sprinkle Simple Stick Embossing Powder over the ink to reveal the pattern. Heat with your embossing tool to make the powder sticky. Sprinkle Onyx Glitter over the Simple Stick and shake off the excess. Heat the design again to set the glitter into the Simple Stick Adhesive and allow to cool. These A Muse Studio Papel Picado Dies are limitless!
OK time for a FREE offer! Want a FREE 2014 A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog? Come visit me at the St. Charles Scrapbook Expo Show and mention this post. I will give you a free Amuse Holiday Catalog! That’s easy right?! See ya in St. Charles.

Hey Foxy Papel Picado Splash

Hey Foxy Papel Picado
I love this card. It’s not for anything really yet. I just made it because stamping is fun! I cut A Muse Studio clear cardstock with the Amuse geometric Papel Picado Die to make my own stencil. I put the stencil over the Habanero cardstock then sprayed with Habanero Splash Ink. Lift the stencil straight up and allow the pretty background you just made dry. Color the fox image from the A Muse Studio Hey Foxy stamp set with Copic markers and die cut. Stamp the banner with Crafty Like a Fox sentiment, embellish with a Fiesta button. Adhere banner and fox to the now dry Habanero background. Embellish the Habanero panel with crepe paper flowers and adhere to a Cocoa cardbase.
You can check out my Papel Picado Splash Video Tutorial here. I also did a crepe paper flower tutorial here. I hope you are inspired to get crafty! Thank you for stopping by my kitchen table today.
