In-Color Treat Bag

Happy Monday!

Today I have a treat bag using 2013-2015 In-Colors and the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies:


In addition to the two dies for making the treat bag, there are 10 accessory dies included in the set! The banner and enjoy are two of them.

I stamped the honeycomb image, from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, on the banner before adhering the enjoy die cut. A scrap piece of Thick Baker's Twine make antennae for the butterfly, from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.

As this was a gift for my friend, Jean, I packaged it in a cello bag and added a tag:


This was a 'real' treat bag as it contained a chocolate chip cookie and a tea bag!

Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies used:  Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe CS, Lullaby DSP, Crisp Cantaloupe Ink, Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine, Pearls, Bitty Butterfly and Decorative Label Punches, Butterflies and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, and Butterfly Basic Stamp Set.

IBS Release Week Day Five - Spring Bouquet and Big Hello

Happy Friday!

Welcome to Day 5 of Release Week! For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I am showcasing two new stamp sets-Spring Bouquet and Big Hello.

I chose ‘Springy’ colors for my card:


Using shimmery card stock, I stamped the bouquet, from the new Spring Bouquet stamp set, lightly sponged the die cut while it was still in the die, then colored the flowers. In addition to this pretty floral image, the Spring Bouquet stamp set includes buildable sentiments!


Hello, from the new Big Hello stamp set (free this month with your $50 purchase!), was stamped directly onto the card stock. I then inked up just Sweet from the Sweetie sentiment and Friend to create tags.


I kept the inside simple:


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

I hope you have enjoyed Release Week as much as we have enjoyed showcasing the new stamp sets. All new sets are available in the Inspired by Stamping Shop.

IBS Release Week Day Four - Tropical Paradise

Happy Thursday!

Welcome to Day Four of Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Tropical Paradise.

I made a shaker card:


I started by stamping my scene with the rocks, small sailboat, and sea gulls (three of the seven images include in the new Tropical Paradise stamp set). Next I sponged the sun, then masked it and the sailboat. I then sponged the scene with blue, pink, and yellow inks. The rocks and sailboat were colored with markers.


I die-cut a frame with two dies from Fancy Labels 3 Dies and mounted it on acetate. A little bit of sand was poured on the image before assembling the card with mounting tape.

IBS Release Week Day Three - Australian Birds

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to Day Three of Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Australian Birds.

I created a masculine card:



After stamping and coloring the Rosella image, from Australian Birds, I trimmed around the tail, die cut the image, and very lightly sponged the die-cut while it was still in the die.



The neutral background papers seemed perfect for a masculine card and for accentuating the Rosetta image. Even though it is a masculine card, I couldn't help adding Fabric Tape and Bling!

Here's the inside:

IBS Release Week Day Two - Hummingbirds

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to Day Two of Release Week at Inspired by Stamping.  Today's stamp set is Hummingbirds.
