Inspired By Stamping Recap Day - Thanks Berry Much

The August Release stamps at Inspired By Stamping are so sweet!  I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks the other day.  I've got one more project to show you which showcases two new sets, Mason Jars and Mason Jar Add On.  


I created my background with a set that was released earlier this summer, Vintage Background.  I used a piece of Red Gingham Washi Tape over Baja Breeze cardstock to create interest behind the strawberry clip art.


I used two Fleur-de-Lis Motif die cuts, layered one upon the other, behind the berries.  I love to add pearls wherever I can!


I love how this little piece turned out!  First I stamped a doily from Delicate Doilies, then on a white scrap, stamped a sentiment from the new set, Mason Jar Add Onpunched it out and placed on top of the doily.  On another scrap, I stamped the ribbon banner from Mason Jars in red, trimmed out and added beneath the doily.  It reminds me of a county fair (blue) ribbon!

To entice you even more, there's special pricing if you buy the whole stamp release bundle -- 15% off the total, and free shipping until Sunday with a minimum $20 purchase.

Check out the projects from my fellow team members --


On a personal note, I'd like to enter this into Flourishes Sweet Celebration challenge (to use something sweet - like strawberries!).

Thanks for dropping in today.  :-)
