Inspired By Stamping October Release - Create A Cupcake & Celebrating 2 Years

Welcome to the October Release Sneak Peeks for Inspired By Stamping!  This month's release is truly a special occasion:  it's IBS's 2nd Anniversary!  Congratulations to our team leader and IBS owner, Joanna Munster.  :)

This month we want you to help celebrate our birthday bash with us! Oct 6th – Oct 9th we will be having challenges each day! There are sketches and color combinations and a few other themes too.

Oct 10th is our release day party! All the product will be available for purchase at 7pm Brisbane time or 5 AM EST.  We will also be offering free shipping for 48 hours starting on the 10th AND all our new stamps will be at a 10% discount.  Be sure to visit Joanna's blog for all the details.

Today, we're featuring two new sets:  Create A Cupcake and Celebrating 2 Years.


I used Celebrating 2 Years:  Such. A. Cute. Set!  The set includes stamps to help you create a hot air balloon, a couple of fun sentiments, create-a-banner pieces, and a frame that fits Fancy Label Dies 1.   Love this frame!   Just had to give it some pearls, you know. ;-)


 Did you know IBS has challenges each month?  Some are sketches, some are colors, or techniques.  I'm using a sketch from the party challenges:


I stamped my balloon with a grey-blue ink, and filled in the spaces between with pearly glue.  The tiny banners were stamped separately and adhered with craft glue.  The polka dot clouds are from a previously-released set, The Sky's The Limit.  I thought they matched quite well with the new IBS pale blue dotted digital patterned paper from the Boy Birthday Bash collection.  :-)


Our design team has plenty of amazing creativity to share, too:

Joanna - Calypso - Rebecca - Rose - Shea - Vicki - Tina - Leah - Kendra  - Irit - Calypso - Shea
