The brand new A Muse Studio catalog is filled with fantastic new stamps, paper and embellishments!! The are many general themes like the beach and ocean, travel, birthday, sports, phrases and words, large background patterns, alphas and numbers and florals along with trendy cool sets like a fox, hipster gear, donuts, zodiac stars, coffee and loads more. Many of the new stamp sets also have coordinating thin metal die sets to make it easy to cut and layer images. Along with stamps you find party supplies like bags, twine and straws; pattern cardstocks, washi tape, rhinestones, sequins and matching cardstocks, inks, ink sprays, buttons, ribbons and glitter in 5 colors palettes so the color of each matches perfectly. New to this catalog too are patterned Snap Cards, stickers and die cut pieces in 6 themes, these make quick and easy scrapbooking pages and greeting cards.
For my first card (shown above) I used the Sealed with Fish set that has cute under sea creatures like an octopus, sea turtle, crab, fish, jelly fish and this cute squid. There are lots of fun phrases included in this set that go perfectly with the critters. For my card I stamped my ocean scene and colored it with markers, adding bubbles to the background and die cutting my squid using the matching die set. I used ribbon for the ocean waves and layered it on some of the Chevron cardstock.
For my next card I used the sweet Nine Loves set, stamping my kitties and coloring them with markers to give them different patterns, I also used the matching die set to cut them out. I cut apart some of the word from the set to put under each cat. I layered everything onto one of the Cat Snap Cards adding a die cut piece from the Cat Squares and Pieces and used some Petite Polka Dot cardstock for the card base.
For my last card I cut strips of different A Muse pattern cardstocks and weaved them together adhereing them to my card front. Then added stamps from the Bee Happy set onto a Nestabilities Circle and Scallop die cut. This set is great for queen bee cards, labels for honey jars and birthday cards
I’m still not done playing with all the fun new A Muse Studio products so be sure to check back soon for more reviews and inspiration from me.
