Studio Stampers January Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio Stampers January blog hop!  My first hop of 2012!  If you are following this hop, you should have arrived from Karen's blog, My Paper Paradise....  Thanks for starting us off so well, Karen!

Check out the 3 cards I made using exclusively A Muse Studio products.  Valentines Day is just around the corner, so I wanted to get a jump start on some love-y dove-y designs...what do you think???

For my first card, I used the bird and cage from the Chirrup stamp set on p.47 in the 2011 Catalog.  The "love you" sentiment is from Essential Sentiments on p.76.  I stamped a faint background in blush using the Script Background stamp from the Holiday catalog.  Cherry Baker's Twine and Heart Trio dies (small one used) also from the Holiday Catalog.  In addition, the scalloped edge you see is an A Muse exclusive die found on p.99 of the 2011 regular catalog.  Papers used: shell, bubblegum gingham, latte, and sugar.  Ink used: french roast.  Popped the heart and the panel out using 3D foam adhesive.

Card 2 
Stamps: Hearts a Plenty, Hand Scripted 
Paper: latte, blush
Ink: bubblegum, french roast
Embellishments: sm. scallop die, bubblegum satin ribbon, french roast baker's twine

Card 3
