Halloween Plaque with GI

This week is all about Halloween Decorations!

I decided to create a Halloween plaque:
I love how it turned out!  This is the first time I have ever created a plaque!
The kids love it as well, which is the best part!!

 A close-up:

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!
