February 2nd Blog Hop!

Welcome to the February  A|S Consultant Blog Hop!  Today I am delighted to be joining some of my fellow consultants in a blog hop featuring products from the wonderful, new, 2012 A Muse|Studio Catalog!  if you are joining us in the hop you should have come here from Carissa Fulkerson’s blog, if not, why not start at the beginning with Karen Crisp’s blog and hop on down until you get back to me?

For my contribution to the  hop, I am featuring Burano & Rialto, two beautiful new colors from the brand new Venetian color palette, shown on page 126 of the new A|S catalog…

Also featured, is the brand new Venetian patterned paper, shown here in the Burano color—a crisp, fresh design that adds a delightful touch to any paper-crafting project. The stamp set used above is Marvelous Marigolds… not new to the catalog but a perennial favorite nevertheless.  My projects above include a candle wrapper, a note card and a gift card holder. The note card incorporates a die cut panel cut from the Labels 8 die set. The gift card holder also incorporates a smaller panel cut from the same set of dies. This die set creates a lovely, soft edge to any project. Simple directions for creating the gift card holder can be found here.

I hope hopping through all of these creative blogs gives you lots of ideas and inspiration in your own stamping today! Please feel free to leave comments or subscribe to my blog if you’d like an email when I post something new…just click on the FOLLOW ME link to the right, above my photo and enter your email address….
