Go-to Gals Designer Challenge: A Muse Studio

Have you seen the newest special issue by Paper Crafts Magazine?


Stamp It! 3 Ways is a really fun issue!  On each page, three designers created a project using the same stamp set.  You won't believe how unique and creative each project is!  I love seeing new and versatile uses for stamps & this issue is packed with inspiration!

The Go-to Gals have taken this concept and adapted it to our monthly designer challenge. All 6 of us have taken the same stamps to create a project on our blogs today.  We decided to use the Harlequin background set & the Essential Sentiment set from A Muse to create a unique project.

I'm headed to California in just a few short days for the Winter CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) trade show... so I have travelling on the mind!

I found this airplane silhouette shape in the Silhouette Studio and used the negative space as my focal point.

              Pin It
I stamped the Harlequin background image over my paper & embossed it with clear EP.  I placed the Air Mail layered sticker by Amy Tangerine  in the top corner so that my project would mimic a postcard.

I used A Muse's Ocean Pigment ink to stamp my sentiment.  I was really surprised how well it showed up on my bright pink paper!


I'm so curious to see what the other girls have come up with!  Make sure to visit each of their blogs today to get even more inspiration!

*Make sure to check the Paper Crafts Connection blog later today for your chance to win both of the stamp sets featured today.
