Old favorite

This "leafy tree" stamp is an old favorite of mine. I would probably count this one in my Top 10 A Muse stamps. I've colored the leaves, used glitter, stamped hearts all over it, and this time I used Flower Soft "Autumn" and some orange gliter glue to give it a little sparkle. I think this image is perfect for Flower Soft. I can't wait to use it in the spring with some of the pastel shades!
On Friday I'm flying to Seattle and you know where I'll be!

A Muse Bouche-Inspired

This "dill" stamp is so great. I can see this used for winter, spring and summer cards. For this fall themed design I was inspired by this. I stamped the dill with 4 different colors, and although its hard to see, I scattered Latte and Chocolate pearls.

Amuse Bouche

It's time for an appetizer! The new A Muse "Stationery" release (coming soon) is just beautiful. The images are so elegant and the Pretty Pearls and Shimmer Couture papers are to die for.
On this card I used the Oak leaves and this great Autumn sentiment. It's a little difficult to tell, but I layered the image with the new Espresso shimmer paper. The pearls are called chocolate. Mmmm....chocolate.

Well, probably not, but I do think it's kinda cute. This card uses some old (dot, tiny cat and frightful and delightful) with the new (paprika notecard, tree and orange twinkle stickers). I love mixing the old standbys with the new.
I'd like to give a big shout-out to my students at Angela's Happy Stamper and Create It Crafts. I love making Halloween cards and you've been great enablers (in a good way ) by putting up with so many Halloween classes. And there's still more! The Hallowen Hanger is coming up on October 18 at Angela's. I hope I'll see you there.
