Inspired By Stamping Release Day!

Today at Inspired By Stamping all the new stamps and dies are in the store!  This release is just so beautiful.  Let me show you some of the goodies.

I used Flowers Bloom for the purple wedding (or Confirmation, graduation, whatever!) card below:



I stamped the frame with Perfect Plum ink, die cut it using the new Fancy Label Dies I, then colored the flowers with Copic markers.


The pretty White Curly Flower is sold at IBS, too.


For the next card, I used Small Fancy Labels I:

Although it's still winter - and I LOVE winter! - this card has a decidedly fresh, spring-like color palette (and of course, there are butterflies!).


I used Soft Sky to ink the frame, ran it through my Big Shot with the new Fancy Label Dies I, and stamped on a sweet sentiment.  Had to add some Liquid Pearls, you know!  tee hee


The next project was oh-so-fun to dream up!  I've recently bought lots of buttons, and needed some cool storage for them.  I decided to re-purpose little candle holders from Bath and Body Works using the new set, Crafty Organization and the Fancy Label Dies I.


Here's the candle jar before (this one smells a bit like frankincense...mmm!)....


...then cleaned and filled with buttons....


...and then topped with these snazzy labels!  I kept the labels flat, so that I can stack more button jars on top as I use up the candles for more button storage.

Both cards are gorgeous, but I have a thing for purple so I have to say, the first card really, really wowed me!! And the labels look great on the upcycled candle containers (a good idea to keep in mind myself).

Sindhu said...

Very clever on re-purposing the candle holders! Great idea.

Gorgeous plum colored card, Colleen. And, you know I love the polka dot ribbon on the second one. Oh, I wish I could like winter, but no, just not in the cards. Except, if we get a snow. :-) Great idea with the candle holders. Reminds me, I think I'll go light a Bath and Body Works candle.

I'm not usually a purple person, but I'm loving the first card here! I love everything about it! That flower is gorgeous and makes the card extra special. And I always love green, yellow and butterflies!

Leslie Miller said...

You've done a beautiful job showcasing this release, Colleen! The first card in lilac stopped me in my tracks as I was scrolling through catching up. Then the next card in those sunny garden colors has immense "happy" appeal. A very sunny and cheerful card.
