This week’s theme and monthly prize
ALL this month we’ve been having an Anything Goes Amusing Challenge. You may have heard that Amuse Studio is closing their doors on Nov 27 — that’s TODAY! 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!
Next Sunday I will be officially with Close to My Heart! Get ready for a new blog look and a NEW challenge name! 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 and ends today!
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 another peek at one of my 12 Days of Christmas tutorials. I love the look of the chalkboard technique but here is an unexpected pop of glitter and sparkle! These were so fun to make and I can’t wait to use them on a package for someone special!
amuse studio supplies: Hello Deer stamp set, Be Light stamp set, Holiday Cheer stamp set, Classic Tag die, Onyx cardstock, Gold, Cranberry and Mermaid Glitter, White embossing powder, Gold/Natural twine (retired),
A while back (in October!) I was super inspired by Laurie Wilson’s joy card. I knew I wanted to replicate it with Amuse Studio cardstock and this noel die. It would easily be a one layer card but I didn’t like the way I had centered the words on my cardstock so it was an easy fix to just cut it out and layer it up. Love it!
amuse studio supplies: Grapefruit, Apple and Lime cardstock, Noel die, Tag Bundle die set
I hope you join us!
So this is a sweet and fond farewell to Amuse Studio. Thank you to Linda, CEO and owner of Amuse, for 5 fabulous and creative years. I’ve been blessed by many new friendships along the way that I won’t let go of and am thankful for the growth I’ve had over the years. I loved embracing my CAS nature!
