Inspired by Stamping Winter Birds Release


Christmas will be here sooner than we think!  Here's an idea for a Seasonal card. 
Inspired by Stamping, Crafty Colonel, Winter Birds, Christmas Card

The Cardinal is such a bright and cheery bird for a Christmas Card.  Especially when you team him up with some green and gold.  I shined him up with some Wink of Stella for a more frosty look.  

There are three other birds in the set and all of them would make wonderful cards!

Happy Crafting!

Sunshine and Smiles

I had fun playing with the new Inspired by Stamping Diamonds set and the Fancy Circles set.  It was very easy to put them together and make some sunshine!
I started by Stamping the diamond border Fancy Circle.  
I created a mask by cutting a 2 1/8 inch circle out of a sticky note and placed it over my stamped circle.
Using the solid diamond I stamped around the circle lining up the horizontal corners with the edge of the circle.  
Here's what it looks like when the mask is removed. 

Here's my finished card after cutting out the sun and stamping a sentiment using Inspired by Stamping Teeny Tiny Greetings.

Hallo-no-ween Card

I don't really have a use for Halloween cards as there are no small children in our family right now.  So I made this card a Hall-no-ween card.  The design and colors go with the season for a vintage love card.

Inspired by Stamping, Crafty Colonel, French Country, Teeny Tiny Greetings, Diamond Cover Plate Cut File, Love Card
I die cut the diamond background in black and orange using Inspired by Stamping's Diamond Cover Plate Cut File.  After mounting the black cut over  purple cardstock I interspersed orange cut diamonds in the spaces.  Many Halloween type decorations have a French Country feel to them.  So I used the Inspired by Stamping French Country Stamp set and cut file for the flourishes, keys and large label.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Greetings.  


Happy Crafting!

House of Cards October Classic & Elegant

It is time for another challenge over at the House of Cards Challenge blog.  This week it is the Classic & Elegant team's turn to post.  This month Mynn our challenge host is sharing a tutorial and asking us to make cards using a die or punch.  Here's my card for the challenge.


This is a CASE of a Sue Wilson card.  I loved her idea of the black Embossing Powder on Black paper.  Here's a closeup of it.


A little hard to see but truly elegant!  The banner is Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is Inspired by Stamping.   Die cuts are Spellbinders and Stampin'Up.  

Come join us at the House of Cards Challenge Blog and use your dies or punches!

Happy Crafting!

Inspired by Stamping Fall Card

Hi!  Donna here with a Fall inspired card.  Fall is in full swing here in Colorado.  The Aspen are turning gold and we already had our first snowfall in the mountains.

To make my Crochet trim on the card stand out against the light background I put a darker piece of ribbon behind it.

The beautiful leaf design of the Fancy Labels 18 accents the large sentiment from the Everyday Greetings Set.  


The gold color go right along with our Aspen turning in the Colorado mountains and the Inspired by Stamping Monthly Blog Challenge Gold.

Club Scrap Blueprints Bloghop

Blueprints Hop Revised photo 0914Blueprints_bloghop_REV2_zps5bc7c2b8.jpg

Welcome to the Club Scrap Blueprints Blog Hop.  If you got here from Annette's Page you are in the right place.  If you got here some other way and would like to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Blog here. I subscribe to the Club Stamp Digital Kit, the Art Nouveau StampClub Stamp Kit,  Unmounted Borders and Backgrounds Stamp, and the Embellishment Pack.  

The digital kits come at the first of the month so I played with my digital kit first.   I am in the process of re-organizing my craft room and came up with this page as my Rewards page for each task accomplished in the organization process.


Because the Club Stamp kits didn't ship until the 22nd of September I didn't get my stamps in time to play with them.  But I did have time to make this digital card face.



Thanks for joining us on the hop!  That's the bloghop for this month see you next month with more fun creations!   If you want to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap blog here.  


Happy Crafting!
