Inspired Stamps - Easel Card

Welcome to Inspired Stamps Thursday!  This week, we are showcasing Easel cards with Scripture.  I have never tried to make a shaped Easel card, and was keen to try it.  

The Shaped card was cut using Spellbinders Labels 20 (largest die).  I used the scripture from the Thank You set, and stamped it on patterned paper.  This is one of my favourite verses, and to add a little interest to the card, I made a rolled paper flower and leaves and adhered them to the top corner of the card.

Thank You 

Here's how the card looks when it's closed:

and  when opened, I reckon it looks, sort of like an oyster? ;-)
Thank you for stopping by.  Please check out the Inspired Stamps blog for more awesome Easel cards from the team.  And don't forget you have a few more days to take advantage of this special :

Have a fabulous day!

Inspired Stamps - Shaped card

Happy Thursday!  This week's Inspired Stamps project is a Shaped Card. I'm sure you'd want to check out all the fabulous ideas the Design Team has in store - see them all on the Inspired Stamp's blog.

I used the new Christmas Poinsettia set once more - I really love this set.  I stamped and coloured the poinsettia, fussy cut it out and adhered it with foam dots on the card.  The sentiment was stamped on the die-cut patterned paper.  Hope you like the idea.

Here's another view of the card:

Have a great day!

Inspired Stamps - September Sneak Peek

Welcome to the September Inspired Stamps Release Sneak Peek!  If you have been following the Sneak Peeks, I'm sure you are excited about the new sets due in the Inspired Stamps store end of this week.  Today, Jamie and I are showcasing the set Christmas Poinsettia.  This has to be my new favourite Christmas set!!  The Poinsettia looks gorgeous and there are so many beautiful sentiments in this set.

The poinsettias are coloured with Copic Markers R32, R24, R35, R39 and the leaves G43, G94, G99.  I decided to have a white on white card, and to add some interest, I added stitching all around the image piece. Yupe, I got myself a new sewing machine ;)

Here's some closeups on the image and sentiment..

and here's the gorgeous sentiment, love the font.

I hope you'll be as excited about this set as I am.  Make sure you check Jamie's blog and also the Inspired Stamps blog for more info and inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by.

Inspired Stamps - Prayed for you

Hello Friends!  Today, at Inspired Stamps we are sharing a Design Team project of our choice.  I used the stamp set "Thinking of You" on this simple card.  The flowers & leaves image was stamped on white cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers (flowers R32, R35 and R37, R81, R83, R85 and leaves G40, G43, G46, and background B10).  The sentiment was stamped directly on the patterned paper.  I apologise for the poor lighting of the photo, it's always dark by the time I get home.

Thinking Of You 

There is a SALE happening right now at Inspired Stamps, 40% off the highest priced item!  What a special deal!

Please visit the Inspired Stamps Blog for more ideas and amazing projects from the Design Team.

Thanks for visiting me.  I'm trying to be more organised, work has been busy but I look forward to some stamping this weekend.

Have a great day!
