New AND On Sale!

Welcome Floral Duet! Isn't it beautiful!? I am in love with this brand new stamp set. It can be yours, and at a discount, in February as part of the Spotlight.

I stamped the large and small bloom on brand new Grapefruit cardstock with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I trimmed them out and layered them to make that great bloom.

Do you see the new polka dot paper? It's a small dot, closer together and printed on white cardstock. I am so excited that we have some new dots! The white base makes it easy to use with the gingham paper.

Tune back tomorrow sometime for more information and inspiration from the February Spotlight.

Stamps: a|s Floral Duet and Essential Sentiments
Paper: a|s Sage Gingham, Onyx Polka Dot, Onyx Shimmer, Sage and Grapefruit
Ink: VersaMagic and Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: a|s White Embossing Powder, Onyx and White Bakers Twine

Together Forever Birthday Cake

Can you believe that it's already time for a muse studio's second catalog!? I can't! The new book is here. Do you want a copy? They are $9.95 and worth every penny. I would love to give you a copy for free for doing any of these three things:

Host a party! It's FUN! I will bring great projects and entertain your friends while teaching them some great rubber stamping tips and tricks. I promise it will be two hours of HAPPY time and a getaway from all the stress of day to day life.

Have a book party! Pass this great catalog around and collect orders. If you would like, I will even provide a little make and take for you to do with your friends! I like to call it a party in a bag.

Order $150 in product. Trust me, that wont be hard to do. Wait till you see this book! I will give you your own copy of the catalog to enjoy AND you will earn an additional $25 of product absolutely FREE. That is more than 23% bonus! Be sure to contact me if you are going to order $150 or more so I can make sure you get your $25 product credit.

Want to get a book for 1/2 price? Place an order of $50 or more and I will give you a catalog for just $5 (plus shipping if applicable). Place your order on my web store, or email me your order. If shipping is required, the catalog will be mailed separately.

Now, let's not put the buggy in front of the horse here, because I still have a whole two evenings left in the current catalog. I have one last order going in! Don't miss out on Together Forever or any of the other fabulous stamp sets that are about to retire. Email me if you need anything before it's too late!

Don't you love the fabulous birthday cake on my card!? It's really the wedding cake from Together Forever! I love a good multi-tasker! This $7.99 stamp set is going to double duty as you make both wedding and birthday cards. To make my wedding cake into a birthday cake, I inked up my stamp and then used a baby wipe to remove the ink from the hearts on the topper. I paper pieced the layers in different paper. Then added tiny star twinkle stickers where the hearts would have stamped. I love those tiny star twinkles. They look like birthday candle sparklers! Click the picture for a closer look at them. They rock!

Stamps: a|s Together Forever, and Wild Rose
Paper: Winter Sky, and Cherry Wood Grain and Buttercup, Cherry and Sage Polka Dot Paper
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: a|s Vanilla Twine, a|s Tiny Star Twinkle Stickers

Foiled Again! meets the Retirement List

With all this snow, it's a stampy day for sure! I am going to enjoy the day making soup, doing laundry and making cards for my Retirement Party. I would like to have great class projects and inspiring samples. We will be saying farewell to lots of great stamp sets and products.

I am going to miss Foiled Again! I barely had four months to play with it before a|s retired it. My mustaches are stamped in a|s French Roast and then flocked with some Teddy Bear Brown flock. I love the Quickie Glue Pen for adding flock and glitter. You get ball point pen precision and good sticking power.

Don't miss your chance to order Foiled Again!, Polka Dot papers and Vanilla Twine. All of these great products are retiring as of January 31st. There is limited supply of the items on the retirement lists. Things are selling out quickly.

Stamps: a|s Foiled Again
Paper: a|s Sky, Wasabi and French Roast Polka Dot which is also retiring. I didn't have enough time with the dots either!
Ink: a|s French Roast
Accessories: a|s Clear Buttons, Vanilla Twine (retiring), Brown Flock, CB Embossing Folder
