This week’s theme and monthly prize
ALL this month we’ll be having an Anything Goes Amusing Challenge. You may have heard that Amuse Studio is closing their doors on Nov 27 … I will be with them until the bittersweet end. All orders this month will receive Happy Mail from me as my thanks – and a huge thanks to those of you who have already ordered! On 3 Dec I’ll be joining Close to My Heart! I will need a new challenge name so I’m announcing a contest to help me think of a new one. I have had some brilliant entries already – you all are so creative – thank you, thank you! You can still enter your ideas in the comments at this original post. The winning idea (or even one randomly picked winner!) will get a brand new Amuse Studio stamp set from me! This contest will run the month of November.
Please share any stamped project you are working on this week – please no digital images. There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing. November’s prize winner will receive this Nordic Noel Amuse Studio stamp set. It’s been one of my favorites over the years and one of my first purchases! (this one is new – don’t worry! I’m keeping mine!)
This Week’s Inspiration
Here is a fantastic card I “lifted” from Amuse Studio’s facebook feed from their talented designers. It features Holiday Word Art from the amuse studio November Collection. It even has matching dies! I have a weakness for the emboss resist technique and it couldn’t get any easier than this! It’s super easy to achieve this crisp border by using washi tape or painters tape to secure and mask your watercolor paper.
amuse studio supplies: Holiday Word Art stamp set, Cherry Reverse Petite Polka dot cardstock, Slate cardstock, Splash and White embossing powder, Peppermint Candy sequin mix
My 12 Days of Christmas tutorials started this week! This is one of them…and the neat thing is that Amuse Studio rolled out the Chevron cardstock and some other goodies in their webstore under the Treasures category.
