Inspired Stamps Grad Card

Welcome to an early Inspired Stamps post. I have several graduates in my life and wanted to share one of the cards I've made for them.  I used one of the adorable His Little Ones stamps today. There are several of these little cuties to choose from.  I also used 1 of the great scriptures from the His Plans stamp set.

Inspired Stamps Alphabet


It's almost Mother's Day and Inspired Stamps has versatile alphabet stamps that allow you to spell out any message.  I used the Colorable Alphabet Stamp set for this card.  Instead of coloring the inside though, I used Stickles to add sparkle to the letters.


I used my CTMH Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge to cut this card and this is the gorgeous inside.

Notepads w/Inspired Stamps


These fun little notepads, using Inspired Stamps 2x2 scripture stamps, are a result of my Spring purging frenzy.  My son and I have been cleaning out closets and scaring away dust bunnies all month! My scrap studio is definitely the most challenging because I hate to waste pretty scraps and bits and bobs of cute stuff ! I was about to toss some index cards from my old school supply stash since my youngest graduated a year ago. Then it hit me that I could save the cards AND some of my scrap stash by combining the two.  


I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the index cards, a piece of patterned paper and a solid piece of cardstock. Stacked them together, hole punched the corners, attached a ring and added a scripture and bits of ribbon and simple embellishments.  The stamps I used were Isaiah 40:31 and Psalm 28:7


Now I have a stash of cute gifts for any occasion!

Inspired Stamps Mother's Day Card


The design team at Inspired Stamps is sharing Mother's Day cards today. When I think of Mother's Day, I always think of purple because it is my dear 88 year old mom's favorite color. Any shade delights her as long as it is in the purple family.  She looks beautiful wearing any of her MANY purple outfits!

My card is elegant but simple and I used the lovely Uppercase Sketchy Alphabet Stamps set to add the word "Mom".

Spring with Inspired Stamps

Spring has finally sprung in N. TX. Although our Easter was a bit chilly! My irises and roses are blooming and the bees and birds are everywhere.  It is my favorite time of year. This card celebrates this wonderful Season.  I used February Hymn Girl Stampavailable at Inspired Stamps.

Inspired Stamps Flower Card


We are finally feeling the warmth of the Spring sun and it feels fabulous! It amazes me every year how a few days of sunshine in the Spring wakes up the flora and fauna! In celebration of the return of Spring I am using a floral stamp today from Inspired Stamps Butterflies and Blooms.

The inside scripture is from His Word stamp set.

Inspired Stamps "Belinda's Bokeh"


I have been wanting to try the "Bokeh" technique for some time. When Inspired Stamps' design team was asked to share a "green" card today, I thought it was a perfect time to experiment! To create circles, I used the BACK of one of the Inspired Stamps 1.5" Circle Sentiments Stamps and the solid circle stamp from the Card Ministry Stamp set. For the smaller white circles, I used a sponge dauber. I'm not sure my design does the technique justice so I will call it "Belinda's Bokeh"!

The word stamp is from the amazingly versatile Colorable Words set. For the inside scripture, I chose to use one from my new fave, Signature Scriptures.
