IBS January sneak peek #1...

  
Hello everyone!

For those of you joining me today for the Inspired by Stamping sneak peek blog hop, welcome! To my usual visitors, I'm glad to see you again!

Today and tomorrow, the DT for Inspired by Stamping have created fabulous sneak peek projects to get you all excited and inspired. Saturday we'll have our release day party and announce all of the fabulous new sets! (Since I was only given 1 to work with, you'll want to hop through all the blogs to get a sneak peek at them all!)

Here's a close up of 2 of the stamps from my set.. the phrase (which I love!), and the cute little hearts.  I stamped the hearts in a color that was just slightly darker than the paper, then covered them in a thin layer of Crackle Accents (by Ranger) to give them a crackled and aged look while keeping the tone-on-tone.

 I used my favorite trick of colorizing white things by painted the tulle, and dyeing the ribbons. After all, any little girl as cutely dressed as this one needs ribbons and bows!

 The flowers were cut out of old book paper, then painted with various colors of Creative Inspirations paint for a fabulous shimmery color!

Recognize this stamp?  It's from the last release "The Sky's the Limit". It fit perfectly in this little ticket that I cut out of some patterned paper.  I love how all the sets from Inspired by Stamping work so well together!

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