We made this card for a graduate at stamp club and then my sister needed some sympathy cards so she used the same design and added a sentiment. They turned out great Shari! 
Love the peacefulness and beauty of these cards!

Simple and stylish...

Here is a simple yet stylish wedding card. I used an embossing folder I found in my stash and then added a thin black layer and a bit of color in the flower sequins from a previous amuse studio collection.

I was in need of some sympathy cards for dog owners who have lost their beloved pet.
These cards turned out so's the perfect card to send condolences.

Cheers to you!

Last but not least...this card was so much fun to make at card class. The little octopus from the sealed with a fish stamp set from amuse studio and the happy hour stamp set made this card fun! 

This little fella is rocking the margarita and party umbrella and having a good time.
Such a great card class and I loved everyone of the cards we made.
Thank you Sylvia!

hello summer

The be yourself stamp set is popular with it's darling flamingo. You can create so many different flamingos using this set of 20 stamps. We all gave Sylvia a hard time because this card was so involved but yet it really wasn't that difficult to make...we had so much fun building our flamingo. Thanks Sylvia for making us think outside the box and putting it all together for a beautiful card.
This set can be found in the June Collection....but don't wait too long...once the 30th gets here it will no longer be available.

hi friend

Sylvia is a such a dear "hi friend"
We made this at her card class using the June Collection and Your'e my Fav...which is going to retire July 17th! It is a simple card but fabulous!

Check out how we used the entire hibiscus border stamp on the inside and added a sentiment. It is a great stamp to have...above we just stamped off the edge of the card.

Happy 4th!

A fun 4th of July card we made at Sylvia's. I told her she needs to put this in the red, white, and blue consultant challenge this's awesome!
The bottlerocket stamp set is great for the 4th of July. You can make so many cute treats, cards, tags, etc. for your festive party!

I detect...

I never thought I wanted these stamp sets from amuse studio until I made this card at Sylvia's card class. We used the sherlock and it's no mystery stamp sets to make this fabulous card. It is a double open it twice to get to your message...amazing!!

You open the first fold, to see the magnifying glass and then you open the next fold to see the sentiment "I dectect it's your birthday" Fabulous guy card!! I used some clear glaze for the magnifying glass to make it look real...and it does!!

thank you

A big thank you to Sylvia for another great card class! You rocked it this time with all the layers, colors, folds, and bling...we loved them all!

Here we used the tropical blooms set from the June Collection at amuse studio! It is a great set to have on hand as you can do so many things with it. We embossed the flowers in black and then sponged them with grapefruit, sage, and papaya ink. Add a little wink of stella and you have a stellar card! Look at all the matching layers we have on this card!

Thinking of you

For the Cat lover...or this would make a great Sympathy card for someone who is missing their beloved pet. The word windows is from a previous collection of amuse studio...hoping it will make its return to the catalog. The cat die is from my stash.

Last but not least....this girly graduation card is made with some retired stamps from amuse them so much that I have to keep them in my stash.

Another fun graduation card for a girl. I added a hint of pink behind the stitched circle die. I love the label maker stamp set from last month's collection of amuse studio....perhaps it will be in our new catalog in July!! Love the little grad cap...retired from amuse studio.

Friday, June 10, 2016


I had a request for some girl graduation cards...the best way I know how to make them girly is to use PINK! So here is a beauty using the numbers die from amuse studio and some pattern paper along with a strip of blush cardstock. I used the sentiment from avery elle.
The gal loved it!

Graduation gift

Needed a graduation gift for a college graduate. I thought a bottle of cheer would be very appropriate. I used my silouette for the bottle hanger, stamped the sentiment and added the die cut graduate. Add a little ribbon and you have a terrific gift!
