Holiday Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to the special Holiday edition of the A Muse Studio Blog Hop. If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Pamela Fredrickson's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog.

Do you love Halloween crafting as much as I do?  I can't resist any stamps with witches or bats and the new A Muse Studio sets were right up my alley so I had to get them the first day I could order!  They will be useful for so many fun things from treat bags, to cards to decorations!

All supplies available on my A Muse Studio Webstore
I stamped the tree using Squash ink on Pumpkin paper and cut it out using fine tip scissors.  I then used the Woodgrain Background on top of the tree (French Roast) and the card front (Nutmeg) to add some interest.  The black plate was embossed using the Web/Swirls impression plate and cut to size.  The bats were a piece of Sugar scrap paper that I covered with the gridded washi tape before cutting it with the bats die.  Glue the bats down using your quickie glue, stamp your sentiment and pop up the tree using the foam squares.  A knotted ribbon completes the look.

  • Stamps - Spooky Boo Day* , Too Cute to Spook* , Woodgrain Background

When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
