A Muse Studio June Spotlight July 12, 2011

I hope that everyone is surviving this heat.  Here in New England, second day of 90 plus degrees.  Thank goodness for air conditioned offices.  Wasn’t it just a few months ago we were talking about how cold it was and couldn’t wait for the heat? 

There are only a few more days left for the June A Muse Studio Spotlight where you can save 10% off certain stamp sets.  There is also a complimentary set of assorted paper pack.  Here are a couple of ideas the A Muse Studio team came up with using the stamp sets featured in the June Spotlight.  

Love the Sea Shell set and the Life’s A Breeze is perfect for summer time. 

What about the Mad for Plaids set?  Great idea to stamp paper and wrap up Hershey’s miniatures and tie with some ribbon or twine.  Perfect idea for a favor for a bridal shower or summer birthday party?

Check out my web shop for details.  Check back this weekend for our July Spotlight.  Happy creating and stay cool.

 

What’s your Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream? July 10, 2011

Who doesn’t love ice cream, especially in the summer time?  What’s your favorite flavor?  My favorite is vanilla with jimmies (sprinkles) or chocolate chip.  You have to have the jimmies, which just adds fun to your ice cream.  Just like the amazing A Muse Studio diamond glitter adds fun to this quick card I made for my June A Muse Studio workshop. 

I used the What’s the Scoop  exclusive A Muse Studio stamp set.  I started with A Muse Studio sugar cardstock in an A2 size  (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) as my base and then stamped the ice cream cone three times on a square of sugar cardstock using  A Muse Studio French Roast ink, zapped it with a heat gun to set the ink, colored them with Copic markers (your favorite pink, yellow and green shades – but you can use whatever colors you love) and then using my Quickie glue stick, added the most amazing A Muse Diamond glitter to the top of the cones.  Love this glitter, but ask my friends, I love glitter when creating cards and think of it as the jimmies on my ice cream.  I then used foam mounting tape and poped up the ice cream cones to A Muse Studio grass cardstock and adhered to the sugar cardstock base card.  So, how quick and fun is this card to make?  All products used on this card are from A Muse Studio and you can check out my web site for more details and to find the products. 

So, what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?  Happy summer and enjoy your ice cream and don’t forget the jimmies.

In March, I joined A Muse Studio, which came out of A Muse Artstamps, one of my favorite stamp companies.  I am now Senior Creative Consultant and am hosting local workshops using some of my favorite stamps.  My new web shop is live and I invite you to visit it at www.amusestudio.com/marysara., where you can shop online, get inspiration and contact me.  I am so excited to be part of this brand-new company that will allow me to explore my creative side when I’m not busy being an executive assistant by day. 

One of my Make and Takes at my launch workshop on May 1st is this cute M&M Treat Bag.  All supplies are by A Muse Studio except for the M&M’s, of course.
