A Muse|Studio offers an incentive program to all new consultants right when they start their business in the hopes that they’ll get it off the ground. It’s not mandatory, but the incentive involves FREE STAMP SETS so when I heard that, I was in! They call it the “Fast Forward” program and there are two steps–a certain dollar amount your first three months as a consultant and then another dollar amount in sales your second three months. As most of you know, I started as an independent consultant with A|S back in August and I’m happy to say that I reached not only my first goal back in November, but my second “Fast Forward” sales goal of $1200 for the 2nd quarter and earned THREE stamp sets from A|S absolutely FREE!
Thank you to my hostesses for your wonderful workshops! And also a BIG thank you to ALL of my customers who helped me reach that sales goal!! This is a fun little business even without the incentives, but yippee—FREE STAMPS!
One of the stamp sets I chose for free is the Lets Be Adventurers set. This is such a cute stamp set, in the old “A Muse Art Stamps” style, with the cute little images hand drawn and the little sentiments to go with them. I can think of a lot of ways to use this stamp set since I have some friends and co-workers who do some serious traveling… it would be fun to send them off on their next vacation with a card made using this set or even give them a travel-themed card like the one I created below for this week’s C&SS post…
So, this card features the Big Ben image and the sentiment reads “big thanks”… so adorable! The colors I used on this are a winter sky base card, then a panel of lemon whip matted with rialto and then a bit of rialto 5/8” satin ribbon as the embellishment. I colored the image with one of my Copic markers – #E33 – trimmed it out and popped it up with a foam square. The clean and simple design features a matted panel with bit of ribbon stapled to the top…a very simple design that can be used with probably most of the images in your collection.
Have fun creating something simple and fun this week!
