IBS Release Build A Stocking

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

Have you enjoyed the releases at Inspired By Stamping?!
What an amazing release, in my opinion!

One last set is being released today, Build A Stocking!

Check it out:
What a fun set, with so many wonderful possibilities!!! 

When I seen the Build A Stocking I knew I wanted to create a cute little stocking shaped card!

So I did just that with the help of the Build A Stocking Cut File!

Ready?!  I love how it turned out!!

Here it is:
So adorable!!
I love it!

All stamps used are from the Build A Stocking, except for the sentiment, which is from the Festive Frames set!
I added some glitter to the heart and sentiment!

Such a cute and fun card!

IBS Release Poinsettias

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am SUPER excited!
As you may have seen Monday, it is release week at Inspired By Stamping!!
I always love releases from IBS!!

Today I am showcasing the new Poinsettias set!
Can you say....LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!
What a beautiful set!
I am in love with this set!  I love poinsettias!

This set is both fun to color the image and fun to leave uncolored, as I did for my card today. 

Here's the card I created:
I decided to use the Poinsettias Cut File to cut out two poinsettias on vellum and then stamp the image and embossed with white embossing powder.
I just love the beautiful elegant look!

I then cut one of the images down, so that I could create the layered poinsettia look.  Gives it a little more depth and interest.

The Merry Christmas sentiment, is preview of a new set releasing tomorrow called Big Holidays!!

A closer look at the poinsettia:
So beautiful!!

Sweet Birthday with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

So I decided to take a little break from all the Halloween projects I have been creating for GI, to create a sweet birthday card.  My daughter's little dance friend had a birthday party a few weeks back.

I thought this card was perfect for her:
Isn't the image sweet?!  Perfect for any little girl!
I used the G398 Birthday Angel!

I added a bunch of sparkle to the  image!


I also used the "Happy Birthday" tag from the G483 Tags set!

Bat Droppings with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I have a fun project to share with you today using a Inspired By Stamping stamp set!!

Check out these fun test tube "Bat Dropping" folders I created:
Aren't they fun?!
Each container holds a different candy, since my kiddos were in the room creating with me and ate some of the candy!!  One has Junior Mints and the other has Milk Duds. 

Both the circle stitched frame and sentiment are from the Halloween Tags set!

As well as the bat I added to back of the sentiment on this one:
Super fun!!

Halloween Webs with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

I have another Halloween card to share!
GI has so many fun Halloween stamps to choose from!
Check them all out here!

For my main image, I used the F455 Happy Halloween



I also stamped a bunch of the G379 Spider Web, to create my own patterned paper!!
 I love how my patterned paper turned out!! I also added a bunch of orange speckles from an alcohol ink re-inker!

It's hard to tell by this close-up, but I used a glittery pen all over the webs and Halloween sentiment!
Fun!!
