Fun with A Muse Studio

Yesterday...I stamped. Plain & Simple.
A Muse Studio all the way baby!

HERE is a quick video with some great tips on Heat Embossing...which is what I did with those adorable little baby feet. :)

To get a lighter shaded flower, simply stamp flowers a 2nd time without re-inking. This is sometimes called 2nd generation stamping - or stamping off. I used a sponge dauber with Papaya ink to color the paper flower. A Muse Studio Flowers are all white...so you can make them ANY color you want! I LOVE that!

I had so much fun creating these recessed window cards. Thanks to Julie Ebersol - Director of Education for A Muse Studio - for posting a great video showing how easy these are to make! You can see the video HERE.
