Inspired Stamps January Release Sneak Peek

Welcome to the Inspired Stamps January Release Sneak Peek!  Today, Amber and I will be sharing some sneaks of a new set called "Draw Near".  It's a beautiful set with very useful sentiments including Scripture sentiments and a gorgeous image.  The sneak peeks are happening the whole of this week and Friday noon time, all the new releases will be available on the Inspired Stamps store.

I am excited to share with you 2 projects from the "Draw Near" set.  The first is a slightly more elaborate card with colouring.  I stamped the girl image using the X-press It Blending cardstock and coloured her with copic markers (Skin - E000, E11, E31, R21; Lips - R32; Eyes - E21, YG23; Hair - E21, E35, E37, E57; Attire - V000, V12, V15, B41, B45).  The image was cut out using Spellbinders Circle die and I sponged some Distress Ink Tumbled Glass around the edges, and layered it on the two of the Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs diecuts.  The patterned papers are from BasicGrey Picadilly 6x6.

My second card is simple, it's a card which you can make in about 15 minutes or less.  Just choose a pretty patterned paper and let the sentiment be the main focal image.

There are just so many possibilities with these scripture sentiments and they are so great for encouragement cards.  I had such fun with it and I hope you'll check it out.  The patterned papers are from Fancy Pants Summer's End 6x6.

Thank you for coming by today.  Remember to visit Amber's blog to see her gorgeous project too and the Inspired Stamps blog for more info.

Kary these are beautiful projects - I love the way you have used a patterned paper for one of the die cuts on the first card. :-)

Kary, gorgeous as usual. Beautiful job.

Christine Ang said...

Both of the cards are outstanding. I am already encouraged just by reading the scripture verses.

Your coloring is amazing, Kary, and I think I was meant to happen by your blog today for that verse! Thanks for the encouragement! :)

Very pretty, Kary! That star shape is beautiful around this image, she looks like an angel! Just read Jen her comment, so lovely you encouraged her!
Wishing you a lovely day!
Hugs, Wendy

What a lovely project, Kary. I just adore this little prayerful girl and your sentiment is a perfect reason why we need to go to our knees more often. Thanks for sharing this great project!
