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.

I promised a preview from the Brand New 2014 A Muse Studio Catalog. Bathing Beauties is an Amuse stamps set available July 1st. Aren’t these girls pretty! I am adding this to the A Muse Studio Consultant Challenge gallery. The challenge this month is heat embossing. I used heat embossing to add the sentiment and also to change the look of my button. The button on this card is from the Vanilla Bag of Buttons. It was a pretty button, but I wanted a gold button for this card. I tapped the button on a VersaMark ink pad and then dipped it in A Muse Studio Gold Embossing Powder. I heated the button until the powder melted and Bobs Your Uncle – a GOLD BUTTON!

I got a big box of brand new A Muse Studio Stamps and Paper and new A Muse Studio Ink Pads and new card stock colors! FUN FUN FUN! I needed a little inspiration to get started with all the fun new Amuse stamps and ink pads so I headed over to Freshly Made Sketches. I thought the sketch looked like a good challenge. I got started with a brand new A Muse Studio stamp set, Bathing Beauties. I knew I was going to paper piece the bathing suit and cap. I thought the new stripe paper from the Fiesta 6×6 Patterned Paper looked like a beach towel. I applied the sketch and got this really cute card. Thank you for the great sketch Freshly Made!
