Inspired by Stamping Fancy Labels 3

My first card showcases the Sweet Valentine’s and Fancy Labels 3 stamp sets with some IBS Washi Tape.

Inspired by Stamping Sweet Valentine's

I used some scrappy pieces of paper for this card. I then cut some washi tape as a banner and added a IBS flower. After cutting out my sentiment and frame, I popped it up using some foam dimensionals.

Inspired by Stamping Heartfelt Greetings

I made my second card for my MIL. Her best friend passed away yesterday and we are heading to the funeral tomorrow. So I made this for her using the Heartfelt Greetings and Elegant Flowers stamp set.

Inspired by Stamping Elegant Flowers

I gently stamped pink flowers for the Elegant Flowers set on white card stock for the background. I then stamped my sentiment with brown ink. I used IBS flowers and crochet trim for a vintage feel.

Inspired by Stamping The Sky's The Limit

The Sky’s The Limit takes center stage with my 3rd card. I really enjoyed making this card filled with bright colors!

I used the free .svg files for the balloons that we offer with each IBS stamp set. After cutting them out, I stamped the balloons using different colors. I love how quick and easy these are to use! I used two different IBS ribbons along the bottom of my card with a little red bow under my sentiment.

Inspired by Stamping Big Notes

Big Notes, IBS Flowers and Leaves, and some IBS crochet trim were used for my last card today. I made a ruffle border along the middle of my card with some crochet trim. Next, I used my Silhouette to cut the gorgeous borders for my card.

“Thinking of You” sentiment was cut on a 1-1/2” piece of cream card stock. I then used the square punch to cut the end of the paper to make a banner. Three red flowers and two leaves were glued next to the sentiment.
