Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: a•muse studio


Hello!  Welcome to another installment of a Go-to Gal Challenge. Today we are joining Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World in celebrating Paper Crafts new & really cool special issue Stamp It! 3 Ways.


Stamp It! 3 Ways is a great issue because it shows 3 different designer's take on one stamp set. Yes, 3 people... using one stamp set (or stamp in some cases) to create 3 vastly different cards. Its really cool, but you'll have to pick up an issue yourself to see how cool it really is!

Today my fellow Go-to gals and I are all using the same two stamp sets to create 6 different cards for you... so be sure to hop along to see how versatile your stamps can really be:)
  
Using a•muse studio's  Harlequin Background and Essential Sentiments and here's what I created...
I started by stamping the harlequin pattern in a very light ink color and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then cut the embossed paper with label die template and layered it over a card made form patterned paper. I then embellished the pattern pearls, flowers and ribbon.  Lastly, I stamped and cut a sentiment tag and adhered it to the card.

Don't forget to visit each of the Go-to Gals blogs today. Everyone has created something fun and inspiring for you!
Julie Campbell


And stop by the Paper Crafts Connection blog this afternoon for your chance to win both of the a•muse studio stamps that we shared with you today.

Enjoy!
