Vintage Black Cat

Love this vintage black cat!  Amuse Studio created these cute treat holders with a fun size pack of M&M's inside.  They used the Amuse Studio gift card insert die.  Don't you love the Digital papers from our Superstitious collection?

Hello from Iowa

My friend, Doreen had the Hello from ... stamp and  I decided I had to have it as well.  It is a custom stamp from Impress if you are interested in ordering and personalizing for your own city or state.  The house cards came from Target several years ago.

Team Swap

I recently participated in an Amuse Studio Team Swap and look at all the wonderful cards that were created!  I love swapping cards with other Consultants and being inspired with new ideas, plus this time we sent each card separately to each other in the mail which was so much fun getting 5 different cards in my mailbox - happy mail is the best!  

This is the card I created using three Amuse Studio stamp sets.

Spooky Sweets Tag

A fun Halloween tag -  I die cut the Jack Tag twice, once with watercolor paper and a second time with fun foam.  After I used Splash Inks on the watercolor die cut I adhered it to the fun foam.  It adds a nice dimension to the jack-o-lantern.

I'm Here For the Boos!

Yes, I'm still on the Halloween card kick!  This is similar to a past card that we had in our Ready to Roll card ideas for Amuse Studio Consultants.  I created a couple of fun Halloween cards with the sentiment being a play on words.  I'm here for the Boos!  The Amuse Studio Happy Hour stamp set mixes nicely with the Creep It Real sentiment :)

Guy Card

I made up several of these cards - super simple, black & white Guy birthday card.  Guy cards are some times hard for me so these are great to have in my stash.  The cake circle is Papertrey Ink 2012 Birthday Tags and the chevron is Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops.  I used a Stitched Circle die to cut out the cake for added interest.

Witch Better Have My Candy

Ok now I'm going crazy for upside down witch legs!  ha!  I couldn't help but find the humor in this layout.  The new Amuse Studio Spooky Landscape Die set was the perfect border for the witch going down if she doesn't deliver on the candy!  I was at Michael's yesterday and kept seeing the witch legs - - - they were haunting me :)

Witchy Woman Party!

Halloween is a favorite time of year for me as far as paper crafting!  I love the colors and the many fun images that go along with the spooky season!  Amuse Studio has so many great products for your Halloween Party needs.  I made a Halloween Party invitation with matching envelope along with a cute popcorn treat box to get this party started!  The Amuse Studio Stamps & Dies catalog is full of amazing stamps and dies for really fun Halloween projects.  In this case I used some stamp sets that I already had in my collection while incorporating a few new sets from the 2016 August Collection.  
Have a wicked Day Ladies!  

I die cut the Witchy Woman so that the hat would create a cool silhouette at the top of the invitation.  The invitation still fits in an A2 envelope for easy mailing.  

The inside of the invitation for all the details.  

And one last detail - the envelope!  I used two new stamp sets that are part of the Amuse Studio August Collection - Creep It Real for the witch legs and the Creepy Cupboard stamp set & dies which it turns out are the perfect shape for the address label.   I wonder if there is a Broomstick Lane somewhere?  

I used the Mini Popcorn box die for a wicked treat!

Sympathy Cards

As much as we don't like making Sympathy cards I find myself needing them all the time.  Here are a couple that I made recently.  The Flower is from Altenew called Beautiful Day.  The Prayers sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that comes with words and the prayers die called Prayers Stamp & Cut.  The With Deepest Sympathy G6072 is also Hero Arts only a wood mount stamp.  I used the Amuse Studio Tag Bundle Die set for the stitched layer on the With Deepest Sympathy card.  That die is one that I reach for often and if you don't have the Tag Bundle die set you should get it immediately!
