Hello crafty ladies and gents! It’s Thursday already?! Wow! It went by in a blink of an eye for me.

February is such a busy month for me. Two birthdays next week and Valentine’s day! Yikes! My little Lizzi will be 8 years old on Monday and her birthday party is Saturday. A princess party too.I can’t believe my littlest is 8 soon. That means I have an 11 1/2 yr old, an almost 10 yr old and an almost 8 year old too. Wowza!

We have a new Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge for you today! It features another Valentine’s Day combination of colors. Please feel free to make something other than a V Day card. It does not have to be Valentine’s.

Here are our colors this week…


Our designers created the MOST BEAUITUFL projects this week to inspire you! While typing the challenge up this week, I was sooo overwhelmed with gratitude to have such amazing talent creating cards using IBS products! Lots of swooning from the computer today!

Here is my card…

Inspired by Stamping

Have I told you how much I love my Silhouette?? Hehe! I do. Most amazing machine ever. It cut out this little box out for me and I didn’t have to do anything but tape it together and add some embellishments! Wow!

Inspired by Stamping 3D Box

I cut it out using some new Prima paper called Tea Time. Gorgeous paper! I also used the remaining paper for the front of my card too.

TIP: Yesterday, I shared with everyone how I create my bows. Click Here to view the video. Today, I used the same technique from the video and then tied the ends behind the box with a little knot.

Inspired by Stamping Flowers and Ribbon

I then cut out the Fancy Tags SVG from the store and stamped the pretty tag from that set. My sentiment comes from Mason Jar Add On II and an IBS pink and white flower.

Inspired by Stamping Fancy Tags

After cutting out the Fancy Tags SVG, I left this tag without the stamped image and just stamped the Mason Jars Add On II sentiment on to it. These tags are the perfect size without stamping the images on them too.

Inspired by Stamping Tiny Leaves and Crochet Trim

Here is a close up of my rolled roses. I also used Tiny Green Leaves from the IBS store.

I mentioned in the video yesterday about looping a bow four times around…Well I did it with this bow! Wow! It is more beautiful than I ever thought possible! What do you think???

I hope you have time to create with us this week! We sure do look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!

Now stop on over and have a peek at our amazing designers!

Have a lovely day and weekend too!

    Stunning box and card. I just made some boxes but I’m thinking yours was easier to make than mine using the Silhouette. I must check into that machine. Your card is awesome with the pretty paper, ribbon, and flowers…every detail!!!

    Breathtaking, going to have to get my Cameo off the shelf and have that baby do me some boxes, love the one you made. TFS and will definitely check out the video.

    Oh Joanna, these projects are gorgeous! The vintage look makes me positively MELT. I watched that bow video yesterday and saved it – so helpful, and yes, the four loops makes the PERFECT “messy” bow!! Can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing these projects – they inspire me to make something vintage today!
