clean & simple sunday no. 69

This Sunday I’m coming to you from beautiful, Charleston, SC!  I’m attending the 2013 A Muse|Studio National Conference and it has been such an exciting couple of days! I am very excited to share some of the wonderful A Muse Studio product information I received at this convention!


Charleston, SC is such a charming, welcoming city!  People are very friendly, helpful and very kind to tourists. The history is rich, the food is W O N D E R F U L, we even had a chance to try some native dishes such as shrimp & grits with fried green tomatoes…amazing and quite delicious!

So today’s clean & simple card is from the first night of convention, a make & take we created during the kick-off event…


This card features a base card made from the brand new petite pinstripe card stock in papaya. A very subtle print that offers amazing variety to the A|S patterned paper line. Its surprising how the subtle pattern (which I just realize is impossible to see in this photo–I’m so sorry!) adds such a nice detail but it’s very easy to stamp on top of; it does not detract from images stamped directly on top of it.  We folded the base card, stamped the greeting and then used a the corner of a square punch to create little chevron arrows out of different strips of colored card stock and glued them down on the card front with tape runner adhesive.  It was so fast and easy! This is a great card design to add to your sketch list so you can whip out a cute, quick birthday card whenever you need one.

I will have lots of samples of stamp art coming to you the rest of this week… tomorrow is a travel day for me but starting Tuesday I will be featuring new sneak peeks and A|S info every day — you won’t want to miss it!!
