A|Muse Challenge: Anything but a card!

This is a lip balm holder I created using the A|Muse Stocking die and cherry felt.

It is two stockings sewn with yarn and decorated with some fabric and ribbon. I also created a tag using the Holiday Tags stamp set.

Metal Embossing

The challenge for the A|Muse Studio consultant challenge blog was Metal embossing. I had to research the topic a bit before I was able to get started. Most of the tutorials I found used heavy duty foil found in the grocery department and I picked up just the regular cheap version :) so what I did was fold the foil in fourths to get it thicker before running it through the big shot to cut out the stocking. After that I used embossing plate by Sizzix and Basic Grey, if memory serves me correctly I think the line is called Figgy Pudding. Slate, Cherry, and Cherry Woodsgrain, and Shimmer Grey paper from A|Muse. The sentiment is from Mini Holiday Messages from A|muse embossed in white powder. I also used some Washi tape from the A|Muse holiday collection.

Ahhh Soap makes me happy...

When I am not stamping I am soaping. One of my other favorite activities when the kids aren't around :). My company is Stone Street Soaps and this season I've come up with some awesome Christmas scents.

The sweet spicy scent of Apple Cider. This has to be one of my favorites this season.

Cinnamon Roll does it get any better? Seriously this soap is all the sweet buttery goodness without the calories.

Fresh Cut Christmas Tree. One of my favorite traditions we share as a family is getting a real Christmas tree. This soap reminds me of the day after Thanksgiving when we bring the tree into the house and start the decorating. Such an awesome scent.

A Muse Consultant Blog Hop: Holiday!

If you are joining in on the A Muse Consultant blog hop you should of come from Jennifer Corson's Blog if not please start at the beginning with Samantha's Blog

This was made using my stamps from the A Muse starter kit a long with mini Holiday messages from the Holiday catalog. The Colors are Sky, Buttercup, Navy, Fern and Cherry. I also added some bling with silver glitter and pearls.

Another card using the mini holiday messages stamp set. I used a 1" punch and punched out some designer papers and added glitter around them and hung them with french roast ribbon all on Sky paper.

This card was made with the Chill of Winter set. One of my favorite sets because I LOVE snowmen! I took the heart in the Calendar Cue set and used my white gel pen to write JOY and colored the snowmen with copics and finished it off with a little silver glitter.

and last but not least a card with the Snow Crystal set. I stamped with the largest snowflake around the edges of the card and used the A Muse snowflake die to cut some snowflakes out of Sugar and Navy cardstock and added a little jewel to the center. The sentiment is stamped in memento black ink it is a non A Muse sentiment stamp.

I had a hard time deciding on what to post so I decided to just post them all!

Now onto your next stop Angela Kelley for some more A|Muse goodness!
