Oh happy day! This is my first official post as a new Design Team member for 'Inspired by Stamping'! I am so excited to show you projects using the new June releases, which are available in the store tomorrow.
There's a FREE shipping deal and a chance to win Blog Candy, so please read on!
This set is for my 10 YO's teacher, who is an amazing instructor as well as a lovely woman.
I love the Elegant Flowers set. This image reminds me of old-fashioned roses that we inherited with our current house. I used a leaf ribbon as my stem, and added pearls to the center of the flower. The set, Little Phrases II, is so versatile. One day I came up with about 20 different phrases I can put together using the words included! Here, I used two words, ransom-style.
My daughter's teacher is a paper crafter, too, so I made her a gift I know she could use: a collection of labels, all die cut and ready for sentiments. I used the set, Fancy Label 18, to create the labels.
The bag topper is made from the same patterned paper as the card, with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die. I used a cereal box to create the punched heart, then rubbed chalk ink over it (supplies at the end of the post). Once again I used the new IBS set, Little Phrases II, to create a sentiment. There's a bit of a 'semi-vintage' doily (well, those doilies are over 20 years old, and by some definitions can be called vintage) behind the heart. The pretty pink flower is from IBS.
My last project is a bright, fun birthday card.
I've combined three new sets here: Background Basics, Vintage Sayings and Little Phrases II. I used a background stamp, stamped in three different colors and then punched out. Those punched shapes were arranged on a card base, and I loooove how it turned out!!
"WISH" is from Vintage Sayings, a collection of four one-word sentiments in an eclectic mix of fonts. "Big" comes from Little Phrases II (so versatile, I'm tellin' ya!). Those pretty little posies are available in the IBS store, too (links at the bottom of this post).
I thought the envelope deserved a little fun decoration too!
