True Stamp 2015!!

Hello all! Happy Friday! Did you like yesterday's free Scrapinar: All that Glitters: Making the Most of the Shiny Stuff? Well, if you did you are going to love what is coming up next!
This is for all stampers or want to try stamping stampers! Whether you're a newer stamper looking to advance your skills, a more experienced paper crafter wanting an inspiration infusion, or a stamping dabbler looking to use your supplies in new ways, you need to hear about True Stamp!
True Stamp is a one-day, online, LIVE event on March 28. All six classes will come to YOU via the magic of the Internet in a state-of-the-art web room. You'll watch class demonstrations, chat with instructors and other students, and have the time of your stampy life – all without leaving home (or even changing out of your PJs!).
Check it out HERE!

You'll learn from experts such as Shari Carroll, Nichol Magouirk, Bev Gray, and more!

If you're tired of just staring at your stamping supplies or creating the “same old” projects, then check out True Stamp 2015. Almost 500 people attended last year's event, and we expect this year to be even bigger and better.  See you on March 28! 

My friend Lain Ehmann of True Scrap has pulled together six of the hottest stamping companies around to offer a full day of inspiration and fun... Including Lawn Fawn, Technique Tuesday, Paper Smooches, Mama Elephant, Raisin Boat, and Simon Says Stamp.

Last Call for the A Muse Studio February Collection

The February collection is chock full of cute and beautiful stamp sets that will help any card maker get ready for Easter. Don't forget that this collection is only available for a few more days. Last day to order will be this Saturday, February 28th. You can see and shop the collection HERE:

Now on for my share for the day-- a simple but stunning card that I created with the A Muse Eggs stamp set and matching dies from the February collection (instructions included below).

A Muse Shopping List: stamps (eggs), dies (large egg), glitter (diamond), cardstock (papaya), ink (VersaFine Onyx), Copic markers (YR07, RV14, V17 and YG25), adhesive (super stick double sided sheets).
To recreate card:
1) Add double sided adhesive to white cardstock. 
2) Remove backing from adhesive sheet and pour glitter on to sticky part of cardstock.
3) Using finger, press glitter into adhesive. Shake and brush off an excess glitter.
4) Ink stamp using VersaFine ink and stamp onto glitter. Allow ink to dry (you can also heat set the ink with a heat embossing tool).
5) Use die to cut out egg. Color flowers and leaves with Copic markers and adhere to card with foam adhesive. Stamp sentiment to face of card.

Reminder: today is my glitter class! If you want to see this technique demonstrated via video + many, many more, don't forget to sign up here: HERE. I hope you can join me!

Hello friends! The A Muse Studio February collection is here and it is DARLING! If you are ready for Spring this collection is just brimming with it! You can check out the entire collection here:

I'm just popping to share a card and tag that I created with some of the lovely things that I purchased from this collection.

Products used on card: Stamps (somebunny loves you stamps*); Dies (somebunny loves you coordinating dies*, large egg die* and grass die); Paper (shell solid & mermaid chevron cardstock); Color (Copic marker); Ribbon (stitched grosgrain); Other (diamond glitter).  *from February Collection

To create glittered bunnies, simply adhere glitter to a adhesive sheet, stamp and die cut images from sheet, then color with Copic markers. 

I'll be back later this week with another card that I created using this stamping on glitter technique. But in the meantime, I wanted to remind you that the A Muse Studio January collection is only available for few more days- until February 14th. So if you wanted to snag some of that beautiful gold bakers twine or the stitched tag fish tail die, do it soon. You can shop here:
