DIY Designer Background Paper

A Muse Studio Blog Hop Time!

Several of the A Muse Studio Creative Consultants have once again come together for a fun and inspiring blog hop. This time around we are showing ways to use our A Muse Studio stamps to create Designer Paper.

Fun Fun Fun!!!

OH how I wish you could see my beautiful shimmery DIY designer paper in person!



I used a set called Ornate Elements and stamped with Versamark Ink on Kraft cardstock. THEN...I added our Stardust Finishing Spray. Oh yeah...now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about...totally designer paper! A beautiful shimmery finish. I also sprayed it on one of our paper flowers from the Meadow Mix (the flax flower). Topped it all off with a Bermuda Button tied with Onyx Organdy ribbon.

WOW! I LOVE this stuff. Click the picture to zoom in and see the shimmer!!!

Look at the strip of Lemon Whip cardstock. I stamped the tiny polka dots from the Polka Dot Patterns stamp set using A Muse Bermuda blue ink.
Don't you just want to go stamp some of this stuff RIGHT NOW?!

You should have come here from Lorie's blog. Next stop on the Blog Hop is Kristie.
Have fun!

All supplies from A Muse Studio.
