IBS Release Week Day 5 - Watercolor Sentiments and Polka Dots

Happy Friday!

Welcome to Day Five of May Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Watercolor Sentiments, plus the new free stamp set of the month (with a $50 purchase), Polka Dots.

Here is my birthday balloon card:



I die-cut a circle and stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card so it would show through, then added baker's twine to turn it into a balloon. I stamped three of the Polka Dots images and turned them into a bundle of balloons. The Happy Birthday sentiment and a few sequins finish off the front of the card.

Here is inside:

IBS Release Week Day Four - Seaside Sentiments

Happy Thursday!

Welcome to Day Four of May Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Seaside Sentiments. This is a 14-piece stamp set.

Having grown up on the East Coast, I spent what seems like every waking minute at the beach. I love everything beach-related and this fun sentiment set is no exception.

Let’s take a look at my fun beach house card:



How fun is this flip flop saying?!?!? As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a beach house card (I have a tutorial here on how to create the wood grain background).


After stamping the sentiment, I die-cut it using Fancy Label Dies 2 and lightly sponged the die cut while it was still inside the die. The flip flops, from the Summer Fun stamp set, were cut on my Portrait using the coordinating Summer Fun cut file. I then stamped and assembled the flip flops (after I took the picture I realized I forgot the bling in the center of flowers!).

Now for the inside of my card:


I carried the same patterned paper that I used for the ‘curtains’ to the inside and stamped another fun saying from the Seaside Sentiments stamp set.

IBS Release Week Day Three - Seaside

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to Day Three of May Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Seaside, which contains nine images. I love this new set!

On to my card:


I stamped and fussy cut the piling image, then tied twine around it. The small seagull was cut with the coordinating Seaside cut file, then stamped. Both were popped up on the card with dimensionals.

The banner shows a sneak peek of tomorrow's stamp set!

Let's take a look at the inside:


I added a strip of the same patterned paper from the front, then simply stamped the seagull images.

IBS Release Week Day Two - Sun Ripened Pear

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to Day Two of May Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Sun-Ripened Pear. This new stamp set contains one image and four sentiments.

Here is my shaker card:


When I first saw the Sun-Ripened Pear stamp set, I thought 'shaker card!' I used the Sun-Ripened Pear cut file to cut the pear in the patterned paper. I cut a second pear, colored the leaves and stem with alcohol markers, cut off the pear, and fit the stem into the stem opening in the patterned paper. After stamping the pear on the yellow card base, I added some micro beads and popped the patterned paper layer on the card. The sentiment was also cut on my Portrait before stamping the thank you.

Here is inside:


I kept the inside simple by adding an angled strip of the same patterned paper from the front of the card along with another sentiment from Sun-Ripened Pear.

IBS Release Week Day One - Big Wonderful

Happy Monday!

Welcome to Day One of May Release Week at Inspired by Stamping. Today's stamp set is Big Wonderful. This is a 21-piece build-a-sentiment stamp set.

Let's take a look at my card:



I stamped my sentiment in two different inks and die-cut it with the Fancy Label Dies 3 set. A few vellum flowers complete this quick and easy card. Perhaps I should give it to one of my nieces to give me for my birthday!
