If you tried to come up with two stamp companies with the most different styles possible, you might think up Artistic Outpost and A Muse Studio. Well, here they are together, what strange bedfellows! I've used this AO bird stamp about a million times, and this time I added and a|s silver glittered swallow die cut. I love the swallows die set, yes I do! Usually I cut them out of chipboard, dunk them into glue, and give them a nice coat of silver glitter. Did you know that a|s introduced silver glitter in their Holiday Catalog? Well, they did, and it is FABULOUS, DAHLING!
Is this card creepy or cute? I can't decide. Those oversized blue eyes are a bit much. However, I did use up some MicroBeadz on them. Remember micro beads? How many do you have stuffed in the back of a drawer? Remember how they escape and get everywhere? Those little buggers hurt when you put your elbow down on one!
Just some crazy layering here. I love the stamp, though. It's American Crafts. Baby sister bought a gazillion sets from Big Lots for a dollar or two. Screamin' deal, that. I used three Spellbinders, one PTI and one Sizzix die on this card.
