Inspired by Stamping and Die Versions Blog Hop

Hi everyone! 


Welcome to the Inspired By Stamping and Die-Versions Blog Hop.  Twenty-two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. Yay!!! Inspired by Stamping, which designs and manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters, has teamed up with Die-Versions, makers of low profile metal dies which work with virtually every machine out there and cuts through most materials, to create this special eye candy of Spring themed projects.

One lucky "hopper" will get a total prize package of $100 in gift certificates, a $50 gift certificate from Inspired by Stamping AND Die-Versions, so you can stock up on some awesome products that both of these companies have to offer.

For your chance to win the grand prize, visit all of the participating blogs, leaving a comment at each, then leave a comment telling us what you like the most about Spring at the Inspired By Stamping blog. All comments entered between now and April 28th at 10 PM (Pacific time) will be eligible for the grand prize.

Today I have an altered canvas to share:


I used the back side of an artist's canvas. The paper was fussy-cut, sponged, and then glued to the frame. Another sheet of the same paper was cut and adhered on the inside. I love the vintage look and Spring feel of this paper.


Isn't the 'I Love you more!' sentiment beautiful? It is from the Big Wishes II  stamp set. The sentiment was first layered on tulle and then on a hand-crafted rosette. 

How about the romantic 'Thinking of You Always' ticket? It is from the versatile Vintage Tickets stamp set (there is a coordinating Vintage Tickets Cut File!). A Small Flower finished off the pretty corner embellishment.


I created the commemorative wording in Word and used two sizes of the Fancy Label Dies 1 to cut and mat.



The Anniversary banner was die cut twice and slightly overlayed.


I created a frame using the Memories Express Edge die.


Tulle and pearls add to the romantic look and feel of my altered canvas.

That's it for my post today. I hope you liked my altered canvas and that it gave you some ideas for using Inspired By Stamping and Die-Versions products! It's time now to hop along for more inspiration.

Your next stop on the hop is Kendra Sand's blog, and if you ever get lost in the hop you can always go to the Die-Versions blog for the complete order list.

Happy hopping!  Don't forget to leave some love along the way. 

Good luck in the Grand Prize Drawing!
