Happy Birthday-Fall Style

Inspired Stamps Design Team is sharing Fall birthday cards today.  I have used 2 of the sentiment stamps from the great Birthday stamp set and leaves from the charming  Leaves stamps. The wonderful Apple Cider papers are from Bo Bunny and are available in the Inspired Stamps on-line store.

Inspired Stamps Fall Card

Inspired Stamps has beautiful Fall stamps you should certainly add to your collection!  I used my favorite pumpkin from Fall Gratitude,  Hymn Girls: January (just covered the heart with a pumpkin) and a sentiment from More Perfect Sentiments. The yummy Fall papers are from the new Bo Bunny papers in the IS on-line store.

Quick post today.  My crafting has had to go  into high gear this week due to my DIL's baby shower, son needing a last minute Homecoming mum, an order for 3 gifts and more! Definitely the season.

New Inspired Stamps!

Today begins OCTOBER and NEW STAMPS AND BO BUNNY PAPER PACKS IN THE INSPIRED STAMPS ONLINE STORE!!! Thank you for joining us for the 30 Days of Christmas Cards Showcase, if you liked the cards, you will LOVE our 12 Weeks of Christmas Card tutorials starting on Friday at the Inspired Stamps Blog!!
I get to share the adorable new Hymn Girl Sitting with Sign.  She is so sweet and so versatile.  I can see using her on a Christmas card with a Christmas message or scripture. When I first saw her, I knew I wanted to use her in a scene card.  I added dimension to the scene by adding foam tape to some of the ivy, a cloud, her legs and the extra cut rocks from the cute Bo Bunny paper. The scripture I used on her sign is from the His Word stamp set and all the paper is from a couple of  Bo  Bunny paper packs now stocked by Inspired Stamps

Christmas Showcase at Inspired Stamps

This card is so much better in person.  It just was difficult to photograph! This is my last post for the 30 Days of Christmas Showcase at Inspired Stamps but there will be 3 more days of cards at the IS Blog and 3 more days to purchase Christmas stamps on SALE!

This card was fun to put together! I started with a red base and then "sandwiched" together a background paper, acetate and the glitter paper.  Before sealing it all closed, I attached the HLO:Christmas Girl and sprinkled in some glitter. The sentiment is from Christmas Poinsettia.
