IBSIC 88 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday!

For today's Inspired by Stamping Sunday Designer Feature, I have a card based on the IBSIC 88 Sketch Challenge:


Here is my take on the sketch:


I used the October Release Build a Stocking, Christmas Wreath, and Big Holidays stamp sets.  


I die-cut a star from the top layer and added three trees, using dimensionals, that were stamped with the tree image from the Build a Stocking stamp set. The large bow is from the Christmas Wreath stamp set, which you can get free with a $50 purchase!


The festive sentiment is from the Big Holidays stamp set. In addition to the Happy Holidays sentiment, the Big Holidays stamp set includes a Christmas and a Hanukkah sentiment. 

I stamped the small and large stars, from the Build a Stocking stamp set, and placed them with dimensionals around the sentiment and upper star cut-out.


I stamped a few of the small and large stars on the inside of the card as well.

The IBSIC 88 Challenge runs through December 15 and includes a color and a theme challenge (tags) as well as the sketch inspiration. You may use one, two, or combine all three inspirations. I hope you play along--one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to receive a $30 gift certificate to the Inspired by Stamping Shop!

IBS Aster Easel

Happy Mondayi! 

For my Inspired by Stamping DT post today I have a special easel card using the Flower of the Month: Aster stamp set. The ‘special’ part is that this easel card is designed to be used on your desk throughout the year. I have included a tear-off full-year calendar and pack of post-it notes.


So, let’s get started!


My easel card is a generous size, measuring 5½ x 5½. After stamping and coloring the beautiful Aster image, I used dimensionals to attach it to the easel.


The ‘On This Day’ sentiment is from the versatile Pretty Planners stamp set. It seemed an appropriate sentiment to go along with the calendar.


The post-it notes hold the easel upright.


Now comes the tough part—do I keep this for myself or give it to a dear friend whose birthday is in January?!?!?

I hope you enjoyed my special easel card. This is a great project to make as a gift (or to keep for yourself!). 

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

Until next time…

IBS Saturday Designer Spotlight -- Thanksgiving Place Cards

Happy Saturday!


Welcome my Inspired by Stamping friends. I am excited to be featuring my first Saturday Designer Spotlight! Today I am sharing a set of Thanksgiving place cards that I created with the partial die-cut technique along with the Happy Fall stamp set and Fancy Labels Dies 2.

So, let’s get started:

The card stock for the place cards was cut at 3 3/4 wide by 3 3/10 high.

I first put the medium-sized die from the Fancy Labels Dies 2 over the coordinating stamp from the Happy Fall stamp set and made two pencil marks on the die where the top of the pattern on the stamp ended.

You can see the pencil marks here:


Next, place the die in the center of the card stock and start your die cutting sandwich:



Place the top cutting plate up against the top of the pencil marks:



Once you have run this through your die cutting machine, you will have a partial die-cut of the Fancy Labels Dies 2.

Next you will need to score along the sides of the cuts:



Now you are ready to stamp (don’t fold on the scores until you have all your stamping completed).


I stamped each frame in a different Fall color (to coordinate with my Green, Orange, Red, and Yellow Fall dishes!). The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment was stamped in dark brown on each place card. I then stamped the small oak leaf in both brown and green. The large oak leaf was first inked in yellow and sponged with orange along the edges before stamping.

Here are all four place cards:


Now all I need to do is write the names!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Designer Spotlight featuring the partial die-cut technique. If you have any questions regarding this technique or today’s project, please leave a comment and I will answer your question(s) as quickly as possible.

Thanks for stopping by!
