IBS Release Day!

Good morning!

Today is release day at Inspired By Stamping!! 

Make sure to check out all the wonderful new sets here!  There's 9 of them!  They are so amazing!!


Today I have another layout to share with you that I made from my daughter's birthday!
I used the "Wish Big" sentiment from the Big Wishes set to create the title on the banner.  The star that separates the two words is from the set Cupcake Wishes, along with the fun piece of confetti that I used to create the background behind the banner!

Close-up of the entire banner:

Love the confetti pieces as the background!  Adds a nice finished touch.

The little "Birthday Girl" sentiment is from the set Butterfly Wings.


Lastly, I have a thank you card!  My brother-in-law's girlfriend called us this past week and asked if she and my brother-in-law could watch our kids for us!  I was floored!  She wanted us to go out together for our anniversary!  It's been such a long time that my husband and I have gone out alone, as I always want the kids around and feel bad asking someone to watch them, so this was a real treat!  It was long overdue!

So I wanted to create a card to thank her:
I just love the newly released Fancy Labels 18 set!!  I've always loved using Spellbinders on my cards and even love them more now that I have amazing stamps to go with them!!  The "Thank You" sentiment is from the stamp set The Sky's The Limit.

Joanna, was so sweet and sent us some flowers in our stamp packages to try on our projects this month as she is selling them beginning today!!  I used Dark Pink Flowers and Shabby Pink Flowers for this card!
I really like the different colors I used on this card, I've never really used these two colors together before.  I was inspired by the new paper pack "Lost and Found" by My Mind's Eye that I recently picked up.

I used Skipping Stones Design sketch this week created by Kazan Clark for inspiration - so I am entering this card in that challenge!


Make sure to check out all the DT blogs, there is such lovely inspiration from all these lovely ladies:
