Vellum Cards with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today, we are featuring cards in which we stamped on vellum!

I am so excited to share my card with you, I love stamping on vellum and sometimes forgot to!  

But I was reminded how beautiful the technique is when creating this card!
I used the new Spring Bouquet stamp set! (LOVE it!!)

Not only do I love the beautiful floral image, I also love all the sentiments you can create from the set!  So fun!

The font used for the "you" is so beautiful!

I stamped the spring bouquet twice on vellum.  Once to use as my main image and then again to cut one of the flowers out to pop-up on my card:
Love how it makes the flower stand out a little more.

Such a beautiful set!

Stuck on You with GI

Happy Thursday Stamping Friends!

Today I am sharing an adorable Valentine's Day card!

I just love the E825 Spikey the Porcupine stamp!!
As well as the cute sentiment that goes with him, D475 Stuck on You!

I also embossed the beautiful H172 Swirls of Hearts background stamp on my white cardstock!


Isn't the E825 Spikey the Porcupine stamp adorable?!
The inside of the card says "Quill You Be Mine?"

CAS with Red Rubber Designs

Good Morning Stamping Friends!

Time for me to host another Inspirational on the Red Rubber Designs Blog!

This week's Inspirational is:
CAS
Clean and Simple Projects

Let's not get caught up in all our embellishments and patterned papers!
Let's focus on STAMPING!
Create a "Clean and Simple" project!
Let the stamping shine!!

Thinking ahead, I thought this would be a great inspirational to get a head start on this year's Christmas cards!!  Since it is cold here, I still have snowflakes on my mind!

And I love Red Rubber Design's snowflakes!!

I created this set of cards:


So I pulled out the beautiful Ornamental Snowflakes Cling Mount Rubber Stamp set, in which I used two of the snowflakes and the Vintage Christmas Cling Mount Rubber Stamp set, in which I only used one of the snowflakes.

A close-up of one of the cards:
The "Holiday Greetings" sentiment is part of the fun Contemporary Greetings Stamp set, which was embossed with silver embossing powder.

So fun!!

Here is one more close-up of a pink one, that is on a white card base:


Now it's your turn!!

Tags with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today, we are featuring Tags!

Creating tags for gift packages is something I really enjoy doing, but admit I tend to forget to once in awhile!  So I was so excited to see we would be featuring tags today!  

So I have one created ahead now!!

I decided to feature the new Flower of the Month: Pansy set!!
I decided to keep my tag kind of simple, yet striking!

I didn't color the image in, but one the top left sprig and bottom right sprig I added some glitter.  I love the look.  A little hard to tell from the picture, but you can see a slight coloring.
Will make a nice addition to a gift!!

I just love the font of the "Happy Birthday"!!  
So beautiful!

Candy Packages with GI

Happy Thursday Stamping Friends!

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

This entire week on the GI Blog we are sharing Valentine Candy Packaging!
What fun!!

Today I am sharing 3 packages I created, that hold Hersey Kisses inside!
I just love these packages!!

On the two back packages, I stamped the H172 Swirls of Hearts on patterned paper, to add some extra pattern.   A nice added touch!!

Here's a look at the stamped paper:
Super fun to do!

A look at one of the packages close up:

I used the B188 I Luv You stamp for my sentiment on all three packages.

A side view to see the candies:
Yummy!
