INSPIRED BY STAMPING-JANUARY NEW RELEASE AND BLOG HOP-DAY 1




Hello crafty friends !!!!

Welcome to Inspired by Stamping’s our first 2017 release! We are so happy you are here. This week Inspired by Stamping is releasing 2 new stamp sets and one sentiment die to their store. All new products are already available in the store! 
You can visit us by clicking here!

Here is my card made with the New Release Blessed Stamp. I have coordinated it with the Easter Lily stamp set.


To make this card, I first stamped the Easter Lily stamp with Versamark Embossing ink and used Superfine white embosssing powder. Then I heat set it with my heat gun. Then, I distressed the card panel with Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress inks. To lessen the tone, I picked up the colour from the flowers with my brush and clear water.
I stamped the Easter /lily stamp with Archival Jet Black ink and coloured it with my Zig markers. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on a white stitched die cut strip with foam tape.
Then, I stamped the sentiment from the Blessed Stamp set and added vellum on top. The card is finished with some sequins.

My second card is a favourite of mine.



For this card, I have used the Blessed stamp in combination with the Vintage Floral Paper. I love the subtle tones on this paper. I  stamped the image on a die cut tag and then heat set it using black embossing powder. I have added some sequins from the new release and decorated my card with a crochet lace trim, jute twine and two pretty rose buds tied with twine.

I am a floral person so my cards are always adorned with flowers. Here too, I have loaded my card with flowers. I love these mini flowers and a pretty bunch adds so much beauty to the card.

This is a heart shaped easel card and I have added pictures to help you guide as to how I constructed this card.

But first, have a look at my card!!!






 

To make this Easel card, Place the Stitched Heart die on white card stock that has been scored and folded at 1/2 inch. Cut through the machine so that you get a hinged heart shaped card. Cut another piece and add this as a backing.



Score the top layer at 3 inches and fold. All the die cut hearts will be adhered on to this front.


Cut two more Stitched die heart die cuts and adhere to the front and at the base.
 

Add two more die cuts that is smaller in size and pop it up with foam tape.



Add the two Leafy Lace Heart at the top and bottom and add another layer of small hearts that has been scored on the score board.



For the flowers, I have used the Bunch of Flowers 2 in three shades. The centres have been dipped in prills . The leaves are from the New Release die Leafy Branch 4. All the flowers and leaves have been embossed on the molding pad.




The card is finished by adding words from the Love Sentiments Die set. I have glittered them up using ECD silk microfine glitter power-Cool Diamond.

INSPIRED BY STAMPING -LILIES FOR YOU

Hello Everyone.

Happy New Year to all. My year has begun on a happy and exciting note. I am now a design team Member with Inspired By Stamping. Colouring and stamping has always been my first love and all the stamps here are so beautiful that using them will be really awesome.

For my card today, I am using the most beautiful Easter Lily stamp.  It was super fun to create a card with this stamp.


To make this card,
I have used  Water Colour Pencils to colour my image after I stamped it with Archival Jet Black ink on white card stock. Then I used small pointed scissors to fussy cut my images and gave it a 3D effect by using 3D foam tape.


The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx black.  I have used the Vintage Floral Paper Pad and the Crochet lace Collection 1.  Tear two strips of pattern paper roughly and add to the left of the card. Then add the flowers as shown and pop them up using 3D foam tape. . I have added the sentiment on a stitched die cut from stash.


The finished card



Here is a list of all the products used







Other products-3D foam tape, Versamark Onyx Black ink, White card stock, black card stock
