Our first designer today is Rose. She has created this lovely Hanukkah card today featuring our Happy Sentiments stamp set. We love her splashes of silver throughout and embossed sentiments. Here’s Rose sharing how she made her card.
 
I was in need of a few Hanukkah cards so of course I pulled out the perfect set from Inspired by Stamping and got to work. Happy Sentiments has a nice large Happy with lots of smaller words that work with almost every holiday. I also did some random stamping using a snowflake from the Elegant Christmas stamp set.
Here is a close up so you can see how everything
sparkles with the silver heat embossing.

Our second card today was created by me. I am all done creating Christmas cards this year and have begun creating for next years birthday cards. Today, I grabbed the Vintage Thread stamp set that was released last month and our latest digital paper and printables.
Inspired by Stamping Vintage Stamp Set and Card

I started out with kraft and white paper as my base for my card. I love polka dots with a kraft background to them. I distressed the edges around my card base pretty heavily today. And created another layer with some music from the Vintage Digital Paper. I didn’t want to cover up the flowers and bird from the paper so I moved my printables and thread to the other side of my card.

Inspired by Stamping Vintage Stamp Set and Vintage Printables

All our stamp sets come with free digital cut files on our website. Just head on over to our store and click on the “download now” button to receive them. I love using them because there is no more fussy cutting. I stamped my vintage thread in pink and then added some hemp twine around the thread. I also added this crystal stick pin.

Our digital printables have a couple of buttons to print too. After cutting them out, I threaded some hemp twine again through the buttons.For my finishing touches, I added this little floral frame and also a Vanilla satin ribbon to the corner.

Thanks so for stopping by crafty friends. We hope that you have enjoyed today’s inspiration. We will see you tomorrow with lots more inspiration from our designers! We hope that you stop by!
