Inspired by Stamping and Die Versions Blog Hop

Hi Crafty Friends!! 

Welcome to the Inspired By Stamping and Die Versions Blog Hop
Twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. Yay!!! 



Inspired by Stamping, designs & manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters has teamed up with Die Versions, makers of metal paper dies with exceptional designs for this special eye candy of Spring themed projects.

Just leave each designer a comment along your way and end at the Inspired By Stamping Blog. There is a chance to win a fabulous prize at the end of this crafty hop. 

-------------------

I am so excited to share my project with you!
I decided to create a beautiful purse gift, not sure what I am going to put inside yet, but I think it turned out so pretty!!

I started off by using some Vintage Floral Paper from IBS!
What a beautiful paper pad!
I used a polka dot piece and a pretty floral piece!
I used the Fancy Label Dies 1 along with one of the beautiful frames from the Just Because set.
The Mother's Day sentiment is from the All Year Wishes II set.

Behind the flowers, I used the new Whispers - Bubbles Background from Die Versions!
Instead of using the entire background, I thought it would just be fun to use portions of it!
I think it is a nice added touch behind the flowers!!

For the top of the purse I used Die Versions new Express Banners - Love You.
I decided to just use the "Love" portion of the die.

-------------------
