Floral Theme - Paper Flowers from IBS

Hi All, today's cards are all about paper flowers.
Inspired By Stamping have the the most amazing array of flowers, they are so beautiful and pretty. Go over to the Inspired By Stamping  Store and have a squizzy by clicking the link below.

I have used the Medium Burgundy and Yellow Flowers for this card collection.
The Paper Collection is from Kaiser Craft 'Be-YOU-tiful' - 12 x 12 pack.
Inks used are Momento Luxe pigment inks - Pear Tart, Rhubarb Stalk  &
Versafine - Vintage Sepia. I have been playing with inks and the best type to use with polymer stampset and am finding that the Momento Luxe inks are producing fabulous results. These are pigments ink so do allow extra time for drying.

Christmas Cards - New Arrival Stampsets

Hi fellow paper crafters Jo here, today I have made some cards using all New Arrival stampsets  from Inspired By Stamping.

To create my own background I have repetitive stamped the Poinsettias on Naturals Ivory Cardstock. I have used Crumb Cake Ink as it is a light enough ink without taking away the focus of the centre Poinsettia.  The paper used for all cards is from Teresa Collins 'Tinsel and Company'. To stamp I used Momento Luxe Inks pear tart for the leaves and Rhubarb stalk for the sentiment. To cut the bottom border I have used Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border #1 Die. 


For the poinsettia  I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum card stock. The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2.

 Christmas Wreath

For the base I have used the star stamp from the Build a Stocking set with Gold & Silver Encore Ink.
The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2. I have inked using my Ranger mini ink tool with Peeled Paint & Peacock feathers.  Washie tape has been placed along the centre of the card along with gold sequins. For the bow I used a Satin Ribbon close to the peacock feathers ink as possible.

Gift Packaging - Stamping on Ribbon

Hi all, I am here today to show you how I package my presents using craft paper and stamps.

Today I have stamped on ribbon with black Staz on ink. I have used Staz On ink on the ribbon as I found this is a suitable ink for fabric. 

The craft wrapping paper I purchased from my local super market from the stationary section. I have used 1 inch white satin ribbon from Lincraft.

The stampset I have selected to to use for this project is Delicate Doilies II. I especially love the borders of this stampset as it very intricate and delicate.  You also have the option to create your own border by selecting the smaller single doilies and stamping repetitively in a line.

I have adhered paper doilies on the wrapped gifts to form a base which I then embellished with left over ribbon strips and twine.  I used Rhubarb Stalk Momento Luxe & Verafine Onyx Black ink to stamp the doilies. 

To label the presents I have stamped using the Holiday Tags stampset. 

Hope this inspires you to think outside the square for packaging by adding an extra hand made element to your presents.

December IBS

Hi All thanks for stopping by, today I have for you another Christmas Card to share.

I love layering this poinsettia stampset to have the 3D effect on my cards. To contrast the poinsettia I have used Gold Embossing powder on Real Red cardstock.  
To hold the layers together I have placed a antique brad in the middle.

I have added some sparkle by using Gold Glittered cardstock to match with the embossing powder.

Happy 55th Birthday - Inspired By Stamping

Today's easel card uses a of fun technique called  "Blocking". 
To get the yellow background I used my clear block and place that directly on the daffodil delight ink and sprayed water to saturate the clear block which I then stamped on the whisper white cardstock. 

To get the corner borders I stamped with the Fancy Labels stampset with daffodil delight to do tone on tone stamping.

For the rose I copic coloured in a deep red to contrast with the yellow. I added some light gray shading around the centre panel as well to soften the start white cardstock.
Hope you enjoyed today's card. happy paper crafting peeps.
