a muse studio plays well with others...

welcome back to my little a muse studio launch blog party! a muse studio happens to sell some awesome pattern papers, damask, mini gingham, polka dots and a few more, but i am a total paper addict and love to use scrapbook paper from all my favorite manufacturers too!

the infamous "to go" cup! i use this guy alllllll the time for every holiday, season and general card that i can think up because it's just so fun to paper piece! and now, with the launch of a muse studio it's been re-released in cling rubber with a whole bunch of perfect sentiments, an espresso machine and a couple of mugs in a set called, "the perfect blend." i love it so much, that this set was even in my friday faves!

(french roast ink pad, foam tape, onyx paper for the card base)

i am loving these bright, cheery colors right now, along with the mix of stripes and florals, blame it on the "botanica" section at anthropolgie! this brand new, "life is a song" stamp set is quickly becoming a new favorite for me, kind of for the same reason that i love "the perfect blend" so much, it's great for all ocassions, color combinations and super easy to use! it comes with 4 different birdcages and 2 interchangable chains, 3 birds, these cute music notes and a whole slew of sayings that can be mixed and matched. there is also a really nice "with sympathy" sentiment in this set. for this card i used a line of onyx twinkle stickers to make my own chain! it's nice that they come on a line of adhesive so that you don't have to worry about lining them up straight!

(tuxedo black memento ink pad, papaya ink pad, onyx twinkle stickers, cherry solid paper for the card base)

ohemgeethesepeeps! i love this little guy! and now, he comes in a fun set called, "for peep's sake" along with the sentiments "for peep's sake" and "to one of my favorite peeps" in a cute new font (i used my old stamp here), along with a spring chick, a buny with a basket and a couple of larger easter sentiments. lot's of cuteness in this one! for this card, i just stamped my peep 3 times, in 3 different ink colors, on a piece i punched and layered using my labels 4 nestabilities and then when the ink was dry i went over them with my quickie glue pen and sprinkled diamond glitter on top to give them that sugar loaded peep look!

(papaya ink pad, bubblegum ink pad, grass ink pad, french roast ink pad, quickie glue pen, diamond glitter, grass solid paper for card base, labels 4 nestabilities)

this is another awesome, go-to set! "happy everything" really does cover just about everything with mix and match sentiments and a cute triangle banner! i also love how large the words are! it makes it really easy to get a more masculine card if need be because it doesn't even really require an image stamp!
