CSS No.120 + A|S News!

I’m back from a little blogging break (ok, a BIG blogging break, but it gave me time to work on some other projects and now I’m back in my stamp studio, ready to share!), with a Clean & Simple Sunday card for today that showcases the Tweet Heart stamp set in some fun, Spring colors…

I love this little stamp set because although it was introduced during a Valentine promotion a couple of years ago, it’s versatile enough to be used in a variety of color combinations and themes, all year round, not just for Valentines.

In the card shown, I used a papaya card base and ink colors of pebble for the tree and bermuda for the little bird. Finished card size measures (4Bar) 3.5 x 5″, and fits perfectly in our 4Bar envelopes with the cute, curved flap!

Since I’ve been away for a while, I also have a few A Muse Studio News updates to share today…

APRIL COLLECTION | The April Collection is HERE and the theme is birthday! A Muse Studio turns 4 this month and the April Collection is great for getting a jump on your birthday card stash with a variety of images and some fun extras like the tall, skinny birthday candles offered this month. The items from this collection will be available through the end of April so get them while you can!  Special Note: This will be the last special MONTHLY COLLECTION until September. Monthly Collections will resume September 1 and continue monthly through the end of 2015, so more to come!

NATIONAL CONFERENCE + NEW CATALOG RELEASE |  The A|S National Conference for consultants will be held May 1-3 in Colorado Springs, CO. I will be attending this year and look forward to sharing all the news from A|S!  One of the big treats of attending the conference is getting a first look at the new Annual Catalog + all of the fun new samples of stamp art using new products! I will be bringing all of that back home to share with YOU! I will be holding a preview event on Sunday, May 31st so save the date! More information on that to come…
