Christmas in July - A Muse

I have scheduled two postings while I am out of town.. Just couldn't let you miss me ;-)

It was a great success at the A Muse A Palooza event at Cranberry Hill Mercantile last night!! There were two free Make-and-Takes with the new A Muse stamps with Lisa.. LOTS of GREAT food that Geri made.. Chicken Croissants, three types of cupcakes, and other munches.. but the BEST OF ALL, the CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!! with the bananas, strawberries, marshmallows and other stuff!! And, there was a huge crowd of people, some of the new A Muse stamps have already sold out!! Fun, fun, fun!! Sorry if you missed the event..

So today I can show you a card that I made with the newly released stamps from A Muse!! This is one of the cards for my upcoming "Christmas in July - A Muse" card class at Cranberry Hill. We will make four different cards in this class. I will show you the second card tomorrow, but the other two I will have to make when we get back from the Stamp in the Hand show in Carson early next week. This class is scheduled for:

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up and/or purchase your Class Kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

There is something about White and Gold cards, they just scream elegance to me.. I used Coconut Swirl (white) and Brushed Gold (metallic), both by Bazzill.

I used FOUR different stamps on this card!! The deer stamp is called "Winter Stag", 2-2166G. The trees are "Pine Tree Silhouette", 2-4154E. Little snowflake "Mini Flake", 6-2168A. And the sentiment "Happy Holidays", 9-8576C. All of these stamps are new and they are all available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. You can either stop by the store or if you don't live in the area, you can call the store during the business hours to place your order, here is the phone number 408-736-9151.

I kind of went crazy with that little snowflake stamp, I stamped it all over the top of the card and also on the inside layer. The circles were cut with Nestabilites. I stamped the trees stamp a few times inside of the white circle. The trees and the snowflake were stamped with the Gold Encore ink. The deer was heat embossed, cut out and popped onto the card. The sentiment is also heat embossed. Gold Dew Drops on both sided of the sentiment.

Pretty simple, but yet so pretty!!
