IBS feb release day...

DSC_0003_edited-1

Hello everyone!

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

Today is the official release day for the February stamp sets and new flowers! I'm so excited! Make sure you stop by all the dt blogs for tons of inspiration, the go shopping here!

*I have lots of projects to share, and since I know you've got lots of blogs to hop through, I won't overload you with a bunch of close ups or in depth descriptions of techniques.. if you have any questions, just ask in the comments or send me an email. =) *

First up we have this...
 Doing masculine cards can be tough for me... However, I think these stamps work nicely for it, don't you? The phrase is from the new Inspired by Stamping "Cupcake Wishes". As much as I personally love the swirly fonts, it is nice to have some greetings that are a little less frilly. The frame is from the new Inspired by Stamping "Fancy Labels 18". And do you recognize the balloons?  They are cut out hot air balloons (minus the baskets) from "The Sky's the Limit".  

Next...
This small gift tag is the perfect size to slip inside a gift bag. I stamped the frame from the Inspired by Stamping  "Small Fancy Labels 3" set right on the folded edge of the cardstock. I then fussy cut it out to form a shaped card. The phrase is part of a stamp from the new Inspired by Stamping "Friends" set. And the flower... I'm thrilled to say will be carried by Inspired by Stamping.... You can get just the "Dark Pink Flowers" or you can get a mixed bag of these cute roses in various colors!

and moving on...
Another sample using the amazing new Inspired by Stamping "Sweet Aviary" set. I love the vine and the birds! They make such cute borders!  The phrase (which works perfectly, don't you think?) is from "The Sky's the Limit"

and finally... 
This is a post-it note holder. It opens up and has a 3x3 post-it note pad inside. Isn't the phrase perfect for this? =)   The phrase is from the new Inspired by Stamping "Friends" set, and the cute little underscore design is from the new Inspired by Stamping "Fancy Labels 18"

Wow! Awesome stamps and flowers being released this month!  Don't forget to visit the other team members' blogs for more sneak peeks!

Great cards! So pretty! Love the colors you used on each of them! Love the added die on the last one to look like the edge of paper.
