IBS January release day party...


Hello everyone!

For those of you joining me today for the Inspired by Stamping sneak peek blog hop, welcome! To my usual visitors, thank you so much for your support!!!

Well, today is the big release day! Have you checked out all the fabulous new sets?!! If not, click here. To order, click here.

And make sure to visit all the blogs today for more fabulous inspiration!


The first stamp I used from the set "Touched by an Angel" is fairly obvious... I stamped it on the back of some velvet flocked paper and fussy cut it... (I actually ended up doing that several times before I was happy with color combos...yeah, it would be nice if I was better at planning things out, but then I guess I would miss the creative journey. lol!)

However, did you spot the second stamp I used?

Probably not because it is hard to see... I love the little details though! I stamped the hearts over and over on tissue paper strips with clear embossing ink. I then heat embossed them and painted over them with a mix of glaze, Distress re-inker, and Perfect pearls. I then layered all the tissue strips for a ruffly background. 

Ok... funny story with this one... I was trying to do this when the power was out. I sponged on a layer of Ivory Creative Inspirations Paint for the white background, but it's not so easy to see cream on white by candle light. LOL!  I figured I had just wasted the paper because it wasn't looking all that good, so I started playing with the paper and candle flame... (can we say pyro?)  When the power finally came back on, I looked at the paper and was surprised that you can still see the shimmer on the charred areas!  I decided to use it in my project after all. =)  

*note: please be careful when playing with fire. I did have water at my finger tips, as well as a non-flamable surface to work on. 

Be sure to visit the other DT blogs to see more fabulous projects made with the newly released stamp sets!
