Inspired By Stamping Release - Beautiful Iris

This is my second post today.  Click HERE for the Custom Button post.  

Hello my friends!  I'm excited to share my first project of our March 2013 release at Inspired By Stamping. Inspired By Stamping, owned by Joanna Munsterfeatures quality photopolymer stamps with coordinating dies, Silhouette cut files and beautiful embellishments.   This month we are releasing 6 new stamp sets! Every month we release new stamps and other fabulous products for all of your crafty needs. All of our sets come with a free cut file whether you purchase the set or not, the files are free for you to use. Some of our stamp sets will also have coordinating die-cuts so you get the best of both worlds!

During the countdown to the release, please join us for contests, prizes and more at Joanna's blog.

One of the new sets in this release is Beautiful Iris.  Sigh.  I absolutely love it!  Irises are one of my favorite flowers.  When my grandmother was still alive and I became a new homeowner, my grandmother had me dig up some of her irises to transplant in my own garden.  Every spring, I have a lovely reminder of her to gaze upon.


I used the iris stamp to create my own patterned paper directly on the card base using a kraft-colored ink.
Then I stamped it on scrap paper, colored and trimmed out very carefully.  I dusted some clear glitter over the flowers.  Love how they seem to have "dew" on them...or is it frost?  LOL

I mounted them on a glittered chipboard frame, too.


This is one of the 5 sentiments in the set.  Love how it fit perfectly on my round tag.
