Another cupcake card using Hey Cupcake!!

I got this idea from the new A Muse Studio catalog, page 58. Instead of Happy Happy Happy all the way to the bottom, I added Birthday to the bottom so it is a little bit different.

These are brand new colors - Grape and Pistachio. I love this color combination!!!

More from the new A Muse Studio catalog

We got a few of these stamp sets FREE at our convention in New Orleans last weekend so I could not wait to play with them. Cupcakes continue to be all the rage so I chose to play with that set first. I love this set!!! Lots of versatility to it.

Another cute cupcake card!!

This is a cute new robot set coming out in the new catalog called "Love Machines". Why didn't they have this cute set out 13 years ago when Nicholas was a "kid"? This is also a brand new color called Rialto. Its like an army green color. Perfect for boys!!

Here are a few more photos from New Orleans ...

Bourbon Street during the day. It looked ALOT different at night. LOL

Some make and takes we did at the convention. These are all brand new stamp sets in the new catalog which comes out Feb 1st. I have my catalogs already and they are being mailed out today, for those who ordered one.

A couple of these cards were some that came from home office using new stamp sets. I must get these 2 sets of new stamps.

And these are some Vintage stamps. These are a very different style of what A Muse usually does but I think those who love Vintage will love these!!

Ok, I wasn't too sure about this crab in my Seafood Gumbo. It had legs sticking out of it. No way, no how was I going to eat that! LOL After taking the crab out of my gumbo, it was delicious!!!

I can't wait for the next convention next year. Where will it be????

Have you seen the new A Muse Studio catalog???

Lots of fun new stamps, new paper colors, new ribbon, new glitter .... Wait till you see it. If you need one, email me at and I will let you know the cost and ship it right out to you.

The A Muse Studio convention was this past weekend in New Orleans. Oh boy did we have a fun time! 36 of us went and it was lots of fun. We got to see the new paper colors, new stamp pads, new glitter and new ribbon. I especially love the new silky crush ribbon. Very nice!!

One afternoon, Heather from A Muse Studio gave us a quick tutorial how to use our Copic markers. Even though I have been using them for awhile now, she taught us some new techniques that I had never learned. Like do you know you can make patterns out of your copic marker colored image with the Copic blending solution? Who knew? :)

This is me, Chelsea, Marissa and Ginger at Po Boys. That place was cheap and good!

We had a gala/awards event on Saturday night. These are Linda's shoes. She used the actual brand new A Muse Studio glitter on them and they came out wonderful!!! We got all dressed up, had bread pudding and baked alaska (that was very yummy I might add!)

Ghiradelli Boxes

When I saw these ghiradelli boxes on Beate's blog, I knew I wanted to make these for the girls on my team with A Muse Studios. These are showcasing the brand new colors coming out in the new catalog, Grape, Grapefruit and Pistachio. I think Pistachio is my favorite out of all of them!! (They will available in the new catalog Feb 1st). And this is a new stamp set called Hey, Cupcake that is also brand new. It fits 2-3 ghiradelli chocolates inside and I hope the girls love them!!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything in 2 weeks ...

What's my excuse now? I haven't worked since Christmas Eve. HA HA I was looking at blogs today and I came across the cutest images from Tiddly Inks. I had forgotten all about their digitals and I found some really cute ones. I made a few cards tonight while the "boys" were watching football. Here is one I made with the girl with the big birthday cake. I decided it needed "something" on the cake so I added some glitter and I do like that much better!! I am using the brand new Grape cardstock from A Muse (you can order it after Feb 1st). I purposely made those polka dots on the green layer using my colorless blender. (You can see each photo larger if you click on each photo)
