IBS Holiday Release Week - Build a Stocking

Happy Friday!


Welcome to Day Five of Holiday Release Week at Inspired by Stamping

Today the Build a Stocking stamp set is being released. This set features a stocking and three stocking toppers. The Build a Stocking stamp set is also chock full of adorable images that you can use for all your holiday cards and tags.



For my card today, I used the colors from IBSIC Challenge #87:


I stamped the stitched stocking from the Build a Stocking stamp set onto patterned paper and 'filled' it with the gingerbread man and lollipop from the Sugar & Spice stamp set. The sentiment is also from the Sugar & Spice stamp set and the pretty snowflake is from the Build a Stocking stamp set.

Here is the inside:


The double candy cane image is from the Build a Stocking stamp set.

IBS Holiday Release Week - Big Holidays and Christmas Wreath

Happy Thursday!  


Welcome to Day Four of Holiday Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. I am so excited--two stamp sets are being released today!

I have three cards today using the Big Holidays stamp set and the new free with $50 purchase Christmas Wreath stamp set.


First up is a window scene that includes a sneak peek of an image that is in the stamp set being released tomorrow.


The snowflakes and bow are images from the Christmas Wreath stamp set. This is a fun set with images to build a wreath. Of course, the images can all be used independently. The pretty Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Big Holidays stamp set, which includes two additional big holiday sentiments!

I carried the snowflakes to the inside as well:


The sentiment is from the Poinsettias stamp set, which was released yesterday.

Next up are two CAS cards featuring sentiments from the Big Holidays stamp set.



Just because the cards are CAS, doesn’t mean you can’t add a bit of bling!

Again, I stamped the snowflake from the Christmas Wreath stamp set on the inside of the cards.



I am having so much fun with the new Holiday stamp sets and know you will too!

Now it's time to visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Mynn and Joanna are sharing along with me today.

IBS Holiday Release Week - Sugar & Spice

Happy Monday!


Welcome to Holiday Release Week at Inspired by Stamping! Five holiday stamps sets and one free with purchase stamp set are being released this week.

The Sugar & Spice stamp set is being released today. This is an adorable build-a-gingerbread set that also includes five sentiments.  The set has so many fun possibilities.

Take a look at my card:


I created the gingerbread banner by stamping three gingerbread men from the Sugar & Spice stamp set and spelled out J O Y with the Fancy Alphabet stamp set. The candy canes and sentiment, die cut with the Fancy Labels Dies 2, are also from the new Sugar & Spice stamp set.

I kept the inside simple, but had to use the fun sentiment and candy image!

Creations by AR October Release and Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday!



Welcome to the Creations by AR October Release and Blog Hop. This month there are two templates being released, Card Armoire and Fragrance Bottle Set!

For today's hop, I used Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi, and retired DSP for the Card Armoire and Parfum Bottle from the Fragrance Bottle Set (there is also a Cologne Bottle).



The Card Armoire came together quickly and easily. It is designed to hold cards, but as I made mine in a Halloween theme, I will be putting chocolates in it.



Oh my, the Parfum Bottle is so cute:


When you open the Parfum Bottle, there is a box in the center with a removable/optional insert. By leaving the insert out, the box could holds treats or a small gift.



The templates come in both PDF and SVG formats. Detailed, step-by-step assembly instructions, with pictures, are included with all Creations by AR templates.

How about a chance to win one of these new templates! Please visit and comment on all the DT blog posts and the Creations by AR Facebook Page. Comments will be accepted until noon ET on Friday, Oct. 17. There will be two winners--the first one chosen will receive the Card Armoire and the second winner will receive the Fragrance Bottle Set. The lucky template winners will be announced on Saturday, Oct. 18 on Adela's blog and Facebook Page.

Now it's time to hop along to see what the other AR Girls created:

Adela - (owner)
Lyn
Julia
Sue
Lisa E. - (that's me!)
Monica

Happy hopping and good luck!

IBS Wine Tag

Happy Monday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I am sharing an idea for gifting wine. I chose the French Country and Small Fancy Labels 18 stamp sets for my project today. Please read on for all the details on creating my wine tag.


A portion of the sunflower, from the French Country stamp set, was stamped onto the corner of the patterned paper. A doily, pearls, and seam binding add feminine touches.


To create the tag, the card stock measures 3½ x 8½, scored at 2 and 4. The ‘side anchors’ measure 1 x 3, scored at ½ on both ends. The layers measure 3¼ by 4 and 3 x 3½.


As with the sunflower, the Happy Birthday sentiment, from the Small Fancy Labels 18 stamp set, was stamped directly onto the patterned paper.

The sentiments in the Small Fancy Labels 18 stamp set are classic. This was one of my very first Inspired by Stamping sets and it is well loved.

That’s it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my wine tag and are inspired to try one yourself. I’m looking forward to making holiday wine tags.

Please visit the Inspired By Stamping Blog to see what Kylie is sharing along with me today.

Next Monday starts Release Week. So excited!
