IBS feb sneak peek #1...


DSC_0010_edited-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 and flowers... YAY!!!! (Since I was only given some of them to work with, you'll want to hop through all the blogs to get a sneak peek at them all!)

*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...
This card features the new Inspired by Stamping "Friends"(the phrase), "Small Fancy Labels 3" (the frame), and "Fancy Labels 18" (the very hard to see in the photo edging on the top). You may notice that the stamp "thinking of you" is actually all on one line... but who says you have to stamp it that way?  Just ink up one part, stamp, clean the stamp, then repeat with the rest of the stamp. Simple!
Like the flower?  Yeah, so do I!  And great news... Inspired by Stamping will be carrying them!!! Yay! They are called Large White Curly Flowers and you get 5 for $1.99.

Next...
This bright b-day card features the new Inspired by Stamping "Fancy Labels 18" (the frame and the bottom border), "Sweet Aviary" (the birds), and an old favorite "The Sky's the Limit" (the phrase).
"Fancy Labels 18" is designed to fit the Spellbinders "Labels 18" die set.  Fabulous, huh! However, you will notice that you don't have to have the die to enjoy this set!  I only used the die as a mask for this card.

Moving right along we have...
This pink beauty features the new Inspired by Stamping "Cupcake Wishes" (the phrase) and "Fancy Labels 18" (the frame and the corners).  Isn't that a fabulous phrase for so many different occasions? Love it!

Up next...
Love the background??? It was stamped using the new Inspired by Stamping "Sweet Aviary".  The tree branch makes a great "off the page" kind of stamp for the edges of things. The phrase is from an older Inspired by Stamping set "Butterfly Wings".

And finally (for today...)
The blue tag and phrase is from the new Inspired by Stamping "Small Fancy Labels 3". This set is designed to fit the Spellbinders "Labels 3" dies... Don't have them? Honestly, neither do I.  The simple shape is easy to fussy cut after you've stamped! The butterfly is from "Butterfly Wings".
The flowers on this card are also new ones that will be available through Inspired by Stamping. The are  the "Medium Daisies" (inked and folded in fourths), and "Medium Puffy Daisies" (inked and cut apart for leaves).   

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