Clean & Simple Sunday No. 126 | Love & Thanks

The release of the A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog is only two days away, and my design team friends and I have been working on samples and design team assignments and all things Halloween and Christmas for several weeks now! I have to say, I’ve been loving every minute!! The holiday catalog is always my favorite release of the year and I love the offerings from A Muse Studio this year. Have you seen all of the sneak peeks on the A|S blog and instagram?!  So exciting to see new stamps, dies and embellishments!

Last night, after immersing myself in Halloween all day, I was trying to switch gears to put a card together for today’s post and I came across this lovely card on Pinterest by Debby Hughes. I was instantly inspired!!

It excites me to take a card designed by someone else and make it my own, especially when I’m dealing with a little “stampers block”. I thought her design and use of embellishments was so clean and simple and BEAUTIFUL!!  I know I’ll be using this overall card design again in the future, probably for some holiday cards, so keep an eye out for it!

For my version of this card design, I used some petite pinstripe card stock in slate as my base card, a panel of sky to stamp on and both the Love & Thanks stamp set and coordinating dies + the new  Happy Thoughts stamp set (sentiment).


I can’t get enough of the sentiments in this Happy Thoughts stamp set and I find myself going back to Love & Thanks again and again. The botanicals are very versatile and work well with almost any sentiment in our catalog!

If you live in the U.S. and would like to purchase any of the A Muse Studio supplies I used for today’s clean and simple card you can shop A|S right HERE.
