MUSE on the NILE!

Today I wanted to show the versatility of the Mailbox Muse stamps. Yesterday I made an ATC and today I have a card using the Mailbox Muse - Muse on the Nile stamp set with a collage image from the Altered Pages Egypt Collage Sheet! 

The Mailbox Muse stamps are small plates of stamps, the Mailbox Muse - Muse on the Nile stamp set has 10 total images and words on the its plate.   When your stamps arrive you will need to cut them apart!

Mailbox Muse - Muse on the Nile stamp set
Black Ink
Altered Pages Collage - Egypt
Card base
Black Cardstock
Acrylic Block
Pirates Gold Embossing Powder
Glue Stick
Double Sided Tape
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops - Golden Berry
Gold Leaf Foil

To start enlarge the image of the pyramids on the Altered Pages Collage - Egypt to fit your Card base.  Stamp the pharaohs face with Black Ink using an  Acrylic Block. Then heat emboss with Pirates Gold Embossing Powder.

Mount the image with the pharaoh on a black cardstock panel with Double Sided Tape.
Stamp "Pharaoh" and "On the Nile" with black ink.  Note:  Line up the words on the acrylic block and stamp on a scrap paper to see that they are lined up correctly, make adjustments.  You will not ruin your original if you do this quick extra step!
Randomly add  Gold Leaf Foil around the card with Tacky Glue.  

Finally add Dew Drops - Golden Berry and ribbon.  Mount panel on the card with Double Sided Tape!

THANKS for stopping by today!!
See more inspiration on the blog tomorrow!!!


  1. That's perfect how you stamped right on the collage image, what a great effect!


  2. This is one of my favorite combos to play with. The Egyptian images and stamps work so well together! Great ATC card!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
