Sneak Preview - and a Give-away

A few days ago I was lucky enough to take delivery of some of the preview items from the new Amuse Studio catalog, with comes out on February 1st, lots of wonderful stuff, but dare I say it - almost too much! You know that feeling you get when you drive into an empty car park and you can't decide where to park? Well that's how I felt.

Last night I caught sight of the current layout challenge on the Cleaning and Simple Stamping site and as they say in France, Voila!


The inks and papers are from  a special collection in five colours called the Venetian collection - think of a painting of Venice by one of the Italian masters and you've got the colour palette.  The Eiffel tower is from the stamp set I took a sentiment from yesterday - come fly with me.  

The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and the two strips are 5 1/2" x 1" and 5 1/2" x 7/8"

I first stamped the tower in Rialto and then over stamped the sentiment in titian.  A very quick, quite manly card, which would be perfect for my husband - if his birthday were not in December, he's sure to see it before then!

 If you are as anxious as me to get the new catalog in your hands, here's you chance - to celebrate the fact that my blog received its 10,000th visitor over night I will be choosing one comment made between now and the end of the month to receive both the new catalog AND a selection of the papers from the Venetian collection - well, what are you waiting for?  You may comment on as many posts as you wish, but only one comment per post please.  (The small print: this offer is only available to residents of the US who are over 18 - sorry)

All of the supplies for the card are from Amuse Studio, with the exception of celebrate in style and the sugar card stock, these items are not available for purchase until February 1st.  

Stamps: come fly with me, celebrate in style
paper: sugar, rialto patterned, titian
ink: rialto, titian
