Card Gallery

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to share a re-cap of the valentines I’ve posted through out my blog the last month or so, thinking it might be an easier point of reference if you are looking for design or color-scheme ideas.  Here are a few Valentine’s from January 2013…

With the excitement surrounding the release of the A Muse|Studio 2012 Holiday Catalog, I thought I’d post the Christmas card samples I have in my sample basket, hoping to provide you with a little inspiration should you be considering which card design you’re going to make your own this coming holiday season… you can click on any image to enlarge a bit and see more detail.

A few card samples using Charming Gardeners, a brand new stamp set out of the 2012 A Muse|Studio Catalog and Idea Book:

I used a Spellbinders/Labels-8 die to create the stamp platform in vanilla card stock. The sentiment was stamped in Titan ink, the flower in Rialto ink and the flower center in Eucalyptus ink. I used my Quickie Glue Pen to color in the flower center and then dusted it with glitter to add a little shine. I used foam squares to pop this panel off the base card which I embellished with the new Venetian patterned paper in Rialto, a strip of Eucalyptus and two large sparkles, one on each side of the card.

Here are a few additional cards that use Rialto card stock, the new Venetian patterned card stock in Rialto as well, Rialto, Titan and Eucalyptus inks, Rialto and Titan 5/8″ satin ribbon and French Roast buttons. The french roast buttons coordinate beautifully with the Titan-colored products due to the variation in shading of the buttons…click on any of these images to view larger versions…

These cards below, were some of the first cards I had the pleasure of putting together using A|S products.  I can’t take credit for any of these designs–they were just beautiful make & takes I was lucky enough to participate in at my own A Muse Studio party and then a week later at the Nashua On-the-Road with A Muse Studio event…  Enjoy the ideas and inspiration from these simply lovely cards…
