One of the most fun parts of my job at A Muse prior to release, is designing the prototypes for the store samples we send out!   What many folks don't realize is that we actually don't have an army of sample makers!

We have:

 "The Power of Vi"

Linda's Mum.
*mondo grin* 

Mum's in her seventies, but, she makes thousands of cards in the course of a year, by replicating the prototypes we send her, with a lot of TLC–she is a meticulous stamper.  On the rare occasion that Mum is not able to do them, a few of us local chicks bust 'em out.  But, I don't think we are as fast as Mum is.  LOL!  She is AMAZING, I tell ya'!

Witch Crash cracks me!  You see quite a few of these in our neighborhood around Halloween; we have a lot of trees for a poor witch to slam into.  LOL!  And, as you can see, this has caused Wolf to literally howl.

Yeah, yeah–most of us at A Muse really call him "Jacob", of course, being majorly Twilight obsessed (severe understatement) . . . *wink*wink*

The wide open spaces of the witch's cape made it quite fun to create a watercolor look with my Copics, and see that branch?  It's actually Spooky Tree.  I love it when a stamp can be used to create the illusion of something else!

Isn't that Blackberry note card de•lish??!!  Totally mouth-watering! (wipes drool off her chin) I'm so tickled with the yummy new colors in this release!

If there's anything else you need to know about this sample, just leave your question down there in the comments.  Thanks!



  1. This is so fantastic! Love how you used the spooky tree.

  2. Oh my gosh…that is one adorable Halloween scene, Julie!! I LOVE it!!

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Love this card Julie.

  4. I’m kind of in love with this!

  5. Heidi, A Muse 4-bar note cards can go first class in the mail without extra postage. 4-bar = 3.5 x 5″. HTH, and thanks for askin’! :)


  6. I have a question for you. Can you put the average “A-muse sized” envelope in the mail? Thanks! Heidi
