Snow Place Gift Card Holders

Happy Thursday!

I had a lot of fun playing with the Snow Place/Snow Friends bundle during the holiday season and am so glad it carried over to the Occasions Catalog. Today I have the gift card holders I made for Christmas place settings.  


These cute gift card/Hershey Kiss holders were cut with a file from the Silhouette Store.


The large banner die from the Bitty Banners Framelits was perfect to die cut the sentiment. Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and a retired Snowflake Sizzlit were used for the snowflakes, plus I used retired Brights DSP in coordinating colors for each holder.


'Dressing' the girl and boy penguins was fun-like paper dolls for crafters! The Snow Friends Framelits make it quick and easy to die cut the pieces. I used a Pumpkin Pie Marker to color the beaks and feet. Notice how the Kisses coordinate with the holders? Super cute!

The Snow Place/Snow Friends bundle is $45-add an ink pad, pack of paper, or spool of ribbon and you have a Sale-a-bration purchase!

Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies used:  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White CS, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Window Sheets, Melon Mambo, Old Olive Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Pumpkin Pie Marker, Bitty Banners Framelits, Snow Place/Snow Friends PP Bundle

IBS Dimensional Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today I have a card using two of the new release stamp sets, Cherry Blossoms and Wishing You. I’m going to show you an easy way to add dimension to the Cherry Blossom image.


Let’s take a look at my card:


I started by stamping and water coloring the Cherry Blossoms   image twice. I fussy cut one image and then fussy cut just two of the cherry blossoms from the second image. A bone folder was used to gently curl the petals and leaves. Next, I stamped the  image on patterned paper and added the water colored images with dimensionals.

Here is a look at the dimension:


I followed through with the lace trim, from the Spring Lilacs Ribbon Collection, and pearls on the inside:


The Wishing You build-a-sentiment stamp set is FREE with a $50 purchase! This set includes nine sayings to build on Wishing you. You will definitely want to add this versatile set to your stamping collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

IBS Release Week Day Four - Easter Bunnies

Happy Thursday!

Welcome to Day Four of Release Week at Inspired by Stamping! Today's stamp set is Easter Bunnies, a set of 12 adorable images and sentiments.

Here is my pastel Easter egg card:



I stamped and water colored the Easter egg image, then die-cut it using the oval die from Fancy Labels 3 Dies. I ran a piece of luscious ribbon from the Spring Lilacs Ribbon Collection through another die cut and added a sheet of polka dot paper from the Spring Lilacs Paper Pad.

Here's a look at the inside:



I stamped the greeting and two Easter eggs, then added a strip of polka dot paper to finish the inside.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog for more Easter Bunnies inspiration and to get details on the Release Week Blog Candy that Joanna is generously offering.
