Friends Forever

Hello friends...

Have you seen the latest IBS  release ???
This time they have released some very pretty stamps...
I have made today's card using the floral stamp from Friends Forever  that was released last week...
 I have colored this image with distress inks & drew the lines with a black pen to make the frame around the flowers...

I mounted it on some dimensionals & added a green stamped strip to add some interest... The dots stamp is from  Background Basics 3
I hope you liked my card

Water Lily

Hello Friends...

Today we are releasing Water lily stamp set at Inspired By Stamping..
& I have made this bright & cheerful card with this set...
I Stamped the waterlily on heavyweight watercolor card stock with archival ink, colored it with distress inks & fussy cut it..
For the background I used the same watercolor card stock & inked it with several blue shades of distress inks & add blue & silver splatters as I wanted the background to somewhat resemble water... & I love how it turned out...
The top white layer of the card & the waterlily was popped up on foam adhesive...
I have stamped the Hello from Summer Fun stamp set...
Have I told you how much I love this stamp  :D

Artsy Watercolor :)

Hello friends...

 I hope you have been enjoying the July release week at Inspired By Stamping...
Today  we are releasing Friends Forever  & I am sharing a new card I made with this stamp set...

I just love this pretty floral stamp from the set... 
You will see me use this stamp in my future card too...  :)
I wanted to do the artsy watercolor look for this card...

I stamped the floral image on to a heavy weight watercolor cardstock  with archival ink & colored it with distress inks & added some colorful splatters in the background...
I kept the card very simple to highlight the image & coloring ...

I have use the big hello stamp from the Summer Fun stamp set release yesterday for my sentiment & stamped it twice for the shadow effect..
I just love this big & bold hello stamp... & I can see myself using it on many of my future cards...

Masculine Birthday Card

Hello Friends…
How are you all doing?
I always have difficulty in making masculine cards & projects & so I try to avoid them…lol…
But this time I thought of giving it another try…
I had some great IBS Guitars stamps on hand that I wanted to play with…

 I started with partially inking one of the guitar stamps with red ink & stamped it on my white card stock…
Then again I inked the remaining area with my black ink & carefully aligned it on top of the stamped image & stamped it again which gave me a two color stamped image…
I distressed it with light brown ink slightly & highlighted some parts with gold perfect pearls…


I have used a die from Fancy Labels 3 Die  & a stamp from Fancy Circles to make my base layer for the sentiment…
For the top layer of the sentiment I stamped the music stamp from the Background Basics 3 in light ink & then stamped the birthday sentiment from Big Wishes 2 on top… I just love the big bold sentiments in this set…

The background of this card was also made with the same music stamp, stenciling, inking & some gold perfect pearl splatters… I think I went a little overboard with the gold splatters…  :)   but I still love the effect...
I hope you like my attempt at masculine card… Do leave some love & have a great weekend….

Pretty Treat Bag

Hello Friends...

How are you all...
I like to make pretty gift boxes & treat bags to give my gifts in...
I think beautiful packaging and presentation with a handmade touch increase the value of the gift & brings a smile on the recipients face  :)
& I am always on a look out for new & innovative gift bag & boxes ideas...
Today I am sharing a cute little treat bag I made with envelope punch board...
It can hold little gifts or sweet treats & looks super cute...
This was made with 1 sheet of 8" square double sided pattern paper..
After I assembled the box I decorated it with die cuts & rhinestones...
I have used the sentiment from Fancy Labels 3 for the front...
I love this sentiment because it can be used for a lot of occasions...

I hope you like my treat box...
