new product sneak peek!

This weekend, A Muse|Studio consultants from all over the country are down in New Orleans attending the first annual A|S Consultant Convention! That’s right—a brand new A|S catalog/idea book is about to be revealed, along with many of the new products for 2012!

Even though I am not among the ladies attending THIS year, as a consultant, I was able to pre-order from a short list of new products. My order arrived on Thursday and I had some time this morning to whip up a few cards using a new stamp set and a new color or two…you can see these cards photographed individually by viewing them in my A|S Card Gallery – just click on the tab at the top of this page and you can get a better look…

Charming Gardeners

These cards were made with new colors and a brand new stamp set called Charming Gardeners (what a versatile set!).  The colors I used are eucalyptus, a color from the original A|S winter color palette, as well as new colors —Rialto (the deep olive green) and Titan (the brown ribbon (shown middle card on right). These two new colors are part of a brand new color palette from A|S called The Venetian. It includes three other beautiful, warm, sunny colors…

Lido – a deep, golden yellow similar to Papaya

Bellini – a sweet, bright, orange sherbet color I know you’re going to love

Burano – a vivid tangerine

All of these colors come in inks, solid card stock, the Venetian patterned card stock and 5/8″ satin ribbon. A sample of all the new colors in a brand new Venetian pattern are shown here to give you a little sneak peak of this beautiful new addition to the A|S color palette…(L-R: Lido, Bellini, Burano, Rialto and Titan)…

A|S - Venetian Color Palette

In addition to some fabulous new stamp sets, A Muse|Studio has some terrific new products coming our way!  New patterned papers including a tiny polka dot, new ribbons, new glitter colors including orange, lime, champagne and french roast, and a few new colors besides the new Venetian colors including a grapefruit (a warm, mid-tone pink), pistachio (a soft, cool, pale green), grape (a rich, med-tone purple) and Seattle (a deep gray). The only color that will no longer be available is the Cranberry. A|S elected to keep Cherry as the true red in the palette. We’ve also paired with Spellbinders to bring you a bigger, more versatile die cutting platform in 8-1/2 x 11 size! This means bigger, more useful die shapes — boxes, bags, envelopes, etc (14 new die sets in total, including a new label set!). I can hardly wait to see these myself!

I will be ordering the new catalogs on Monday and should have them by the end of the first week in February. I have dates available for home workshops if you live in CT, MA or RI and would like to see a demonstration and enjoy some stamping fun with your girl friends! Place a comment or email me directly at to book a workshop and receive your NEW 2012 A|S Catalog absolutely FREE, in addition to all of the free product included in the hostess benefits!

More tidbits to come…stay tuned 🙂
