My muse is the October's Inspired By Stamping Sketch Challenge. Click on the picture to take you over to the other inspirational pictures for the blog challenge.

Cardstock used is Whisper White & Shimmer Silver.

Ink - Smokey Grey Versafine Ink

I have used  the Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company Designer 6 x 6 paper pad.  I added extra glitter to the poinsettia but brushing my Wink of Stella clear pen on the flower. 

I coloured in the bow on the stamped label with the red wink of stella pen then added glossy ascents to to add dimension to the bow.

Hope you all have a wonderful paper crafting day!

Gingerbread Milk Carton Box

I had some fun playing with today's new stampset release "Sugar & Spice".

Instead of a traditional card I have made a milk carton as a gift box to fill with some lollies. I have used my Cameo Silhouette to cut the bx template out. The Designer Series paper is a retired SU that I found in my hoard vault.

This stampset is a great builder stampset, the opportunity to layer the gingerbread with so many features is endless.

The sweet connotations of the sentiments makes this even more fun to play and create with.

I have stamped the small images with white Staz on as I find this a great white ink to leave a crisp stamped image.

I have used Ruby Red Liquid Pearls as the button embellishment as a 3D element on the Gingerbread man and have added texture with glossy accents on the hat.

Hi all, I have created a vintage style stocking card with the Build a Stockings stamp set and paper pieced with the Kaiser Craft "Christmas Collection" pack. 

Ink used to stamp the images was Versafine Vintage Sepia. 
For the sponging around the edges I used Baked Brown Sugar. 

My card base is a normal standard A2 Size Card the colour is choc chip and the embossed spellbinders die cut and punched out cardstock is Baked Brown.

For the embellishment I have used Inspired By Stamping Poinsettia flower and one layer of Inspired By Stamping crochet trim. I have layered my ribbon my adding SU choc chip tafetta ribbon.

Joanna's Birthday Blog Hop

Surprise!  I'm here today, along with other gals on the Inspired By Stamping design team, to wish the Inspired By Stamping store's owner, Joanna, a happy 3rd anniversary for the store and an early happy birthday!  You should have arrived her from Irit Shalom blog.  If not, and you'd like to join in the fun, please start at Joanna's blog and hop along with us to wish her many happy returns!  We've all made birthday creations to share using Inspired By Stamping products.  
Come and take a peek at mine!

I have done a two step stamping process where I first stamped with Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink then a white staz on for the pearls and corset.  Two step stamping is a fun way to layer your stamping and adding more dimension to your image.
I added some light touches of sponging with blushing bride pink ink and crumb cake ink from SU.

Papers used are from the Inspired By Stamping  Vintage Floral Collection.

I have done both the front and inside of the card.

All products in today's card is from Inspired By Stamping.

Build a Stocking Stampset - Inspired By Stamping

Stockings Set

Hi all, Jo here, I am so in love with the new "Build a Stockings" stampset.
This stampset has so much versatility that I could have played with it all day. It is not only great for stamping layers upon layers but to paper pierce with layers also is an awesome way to stretch your stampset and get more value out of them.
The set I have made consists of a centre step card and coordinating box. For those that have an electric cutter Inspired By Stamping has also  made available a coordinating cut file so you wont have to fussy cut.

 The colour combination is inspired from the October colour challenge. I have used Crumb Cake card base and strips of Soft Suede for the matting.  To embellish the set I have used the Teresa Collins " Tinsel and Company"  sequins and red stickles in the centre of the bow.
 I have stamped on Webster Pages "It's a Christmas" paper collection with Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink on both the Christmas stocking and stitched bow from the " Christmas Wreath" FREE stamp set of the month. This stamp set comes FREE with every $50 order.
 The tag is also from another popular stampset " Holiday Tags" which is currently a Sale item in our Inspired By Stamping Shop. Click on the pictures below which will take you to the stampset directly.


To created this box I pulled out my new We R Memory Keepers Gift Box punch board. I have used a 12 x 12 crumb cake cardstock and the XL setting on the board. This box measures 4 x 4 x 4. Great box to put some Christmas Teacher gifts into :)
