A Muse by the Dozen

Think simple. Think A Muse.

Have you ever heard that saying? If you're answer is "yes" then you know all about A Muse Art Stamps. If you haven't ever heard of seen A Muse stamps...then go check them out. A Muse products are designed as a collection. With these stamp you can create cards quickly and easily.

A little over a year ago my granddaughter was born and my daughter and I made birth announcements. We had gone to a local stamp store (Stamp Works) to look for ideas and find a stamp. My daughter decided on a stamp called ABC mobil from A Muse. At the time we had NO idea about A Muse stamps, she just pick it because there was a sample in the store using that stamp that was super cute, yet totally simple. Take a look at the birth announcement here. (excuse the poor photography) It was from that project we started really looking at all the cute stamps from A Muse.

OK.....now that I have explained how I got started using these stamps...take a look at some of my recent creations. Remember - you can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. You can apply the A Muse style to any creations with any stamp! :)

Don't forget to click on the pics if you want to see them in larger detail.

All stamps used are A Muse and a few from Stampin'UP! Various inks from SU, Ranger Adirondack, Tsukineko Memento, Colorbox. Various Cardstock and Papers. Chiffon Orange Notecards from A Muse. Various markers from SU, Prismacolor, Copic. Misc punches from Marvy Uchida, SU, EK Success, Spellbinders. SU detail clear embossing powder. Misc glitters from Ranger Stickles, Copic Spica Glitter Pen, Sakura Glitter Pen and SU Dazzling Diamonds. Various ribbons, Prima flowers, brads and Swarvoski flat back crystals. Other misc items used - Brass Stencil, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals. Paper piecing, heat embossing, dry embossing.
