“I love the Fancy Label dies II. It is perfect in layering papers over each other. I decided to heat emboss the title of my card on the green paper to make it stand out better. I just so happen to have some pattern paper with house prints on them so I added that in the card to match the theme.

Up next, is a canvas that I have been working on over the last month. I made the bases for these two canvases and hung them up on my wall, knowing that one day I will feel inspired to finish them. Well today is the day! Here’s all the details on how I made them.

These canvases measure 6×8 and fit perfect with our 6×6 Vintage Digital Paper. Because the canvas was a bit bigger, I added some IBS crochet trim to cover up where the two pieces join.

I just adore the first canvas. It is just filled with Inspired by Stamping goodies. Everything on this is from our store. It is so exciting! For the postcard, I stamped it on white cardstock using our Vintage Postcards & Summer Postcard Add On stamp set. I distressed all around the edges with distress ink. I then flipped the white cardstock over and stamped some French Script from our Background Basics III stamp set on the back. I love this effect! Next, I curled the edge that shows the script.

These three pieces are from our Vintage Printables. I distressed the edges and lifted each one with foam dimensions. My butterflies are from our free cut files from the Butterfly Wings Stamp set. I used our Vintage Paper to cut them out with and added rhinestones to each. For my final touches, I added lots of IBS flowers from our store in pinks, hot pink and creams.

My second canvas was first layered with some more Vintage Paper. I then added this frame that I had in my stash and distressed the edges with distress ink. I then added some rhinestones around the edges. This beautiful quote can be found from our Vintage Printables.

After gluing my sentiments on my canvas, I added some more Inspired by Stamping flowers to the corner. I also added some Vanilla Satin Ribbon with a triple bow on the top left corner.
