Inspired Stamps Baby Card

Today we were asked to do an Inspired Stamps wedding or baby card. I had planned on doing a wedding card until my son and daughter-in-love shared some amazing news with us...they're having their first baby and I'm going to be a "Mimi" by Christmas!!! WOO HOO!!!!

OK, back to the card-this will be sent to the mommy and daddy-to-be to congratulate them on the news!


For the sweet owl family, I used the versatile Owls stamp set
 and for the sentiment, the multi-functional More Perfect Sentiments. Now excuse me while I go start turning the guest room into a grandbaby nursery-lol!

Inspired Stamps Thursday and a Giveaway!!


Welcome to Inspired Stamps Thursday! Today I am sharing the beautiful new Hymns: Wings and Feathers stamp set. The peacock feather is just 1 of the several stamps in this set.  I used pencils ( a rarity for me!) to color the image and then covered it  with Rock Candy Stickles for some sparkle.  It's hard to capture the sparkle in a picture but I think you can see a bit of it in this closeup.

I also used one of the scripture stamps from the His Word stamp set. The paper is Bazzil and you can find several selections of it in the Inspired Stamps online store.

Now, if you're still reading, let me tell you about our exciting giveaway to be held APRIL 10th! There will be a drawing in celebration of having 100,000 views of the Inspired Stamps blog.

Inspired Stamps New Release

Lots of gorgeous new stamps at Inspired Stamps TODAY!  We are introducing the new Hymns stamp collections. I used the Wings Stamp Set which includes yummy feathers, angel wings, butterfly wings and more. All are backed/filled with hymns.  You can color them or stamp them on colored paper as I did. You must go to the Inspired Stamps Blog to see the different creations using the Hymns stamps sets-some of my favorites are the lovely Hymn Girls.

I chose to make a wall hanging for a friend of mine.  I used a set of wings stamps to transform the figure into an angel and used another pair of wings for the butterfly.  The scripture is from the Psalm 91 Stamp Set.

Inspired Stamps Tag


I had not made a tag in a while so this assignment from Inspired Stamps was fun!  I started with a manila tag, used a stencil and a Heidi Swapp spray for the background.  The adorable 
Scripture Holder Girl w/Curls is holding one of my favorite scriptures Isaiah 40:8 from the versatile Flowers Value Pack. The "ribbon" is actually a piece of washi tape folded over a twist tie so it can be curled.
