More July spotlight

Summer is just flying by! The weather around the PNW has left much to be desired, but at least we are not in drought conditions (quite the opposite!) and are not wilting in the excessive heat. No, rather, we wake up each day hoping we'll have sun and hit 75*. Sigh. I'm not complaining, though. Really, I'm not. I went to Texas recently so I know the alternative is not desirable.

This crappy weather has left me with some time to be crafty without feeling guilty about sitting inside. I thought it would be a great time to share another a*muse studio July Spotlight sample with you. I used That's the ticket along with some fun pink polka dotted washi tape to create this fun birthday card. Hmm... someone's birthday is coming soon. Oh yeah, it's mine! haha! Sadly, I'm beyond 40.

Okay, well, I just finished my class samples for my next class on August 27th but no sneaky peekies for you!! I'll be debuting some product from the new 2011 Holiday Catalog and Inspiration Guide so you KNOW you want to sign up and come. If you just can't wait to see the new stuff, contact me and I'll send you a .pdf version of the catalog. Then, you can book your workshop an we'll have some fun together!

One week left!!

Ink: Toffee, French Roast
Paper: Toffee, Vanilla
Stamps: Sea Shells, Graphic Sunflower, Mesh Background
Other: small corner rounder, washi tape, brown Tombow marker

Only one week left to save on the current A Muse Studio Spotlight items for June! Be sure to place your order before midnight on July 15th. I've been gettin' my crafty on to prepare for the next Spotlight and I can't wait to share with you!

To make this card, I stamped the starfish image from Sea Shells, inking the center with a brown Tombow marker. I masked the image with a Post-It note, then created a wavy border on a piece of scrap paper. I placed the wavy border on the Vanilla piece, then using a sponge dauber, I added Toffee ink to create sand. Along the bottom of the vanilla square, I added some washi tape, then rounded all the corners. You can't see it clearly in the photo, but I stamped the mesh background on the Toffee notecard base. The sentiment is from our Graphic Sunflower set. Easy peasy, and oh, so pretty!
