Now on to our inspirations today! Mynnette has created such a soft and feminine card today featuring our Words of Inspiration & Spring Lilacs Collection! We love her beautiful coloring and her gorgeous layering. Here is Mynnette sharing her gorgeous card with us!
“Hello again, friends, and Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back again with another creation using products from the fabulous Inspired By Stamping store! Today I’ve got a card to share with you. Come take a peek!
I started by taking some paper from the Spring Lilacs Paper Pad and layer them onto two separate panels. I then stamped my sentiment from the Words of Inspiration set directly onto the patterned paper.
I then colored and stamped the beautiful lilac image and the sweet butterfly image from the Spring Lilacs stamp set, fussy cut it out, and added it and some embellishments to the card.
That’s all for me today! I will be back soon with another project featuring more gorgeous products from the Inspired By Stamping store! ~Mynnette”

This weekend we are celebrating another birthday. My son, Brayden, turns 11 on Sunday! He loves pirates. He inspired me to create the Pirates stamp set last year and I was so excited to make him today’s card for his big day!
Today’s card is a 5×5 size, and extra large card for the slightly larger image of my pirates ship. I started with creating 2 layers, one in navy blue and the other again in white card stock. I then stitched around the edges in kraft colored thread to match my background images from the Background Basics IV stamp set.
I stamped my image on 3×4 white card stock using Navy blue ink. This image is from our Pirates stamp set. I then used some light blue and water colored my image. Click Here to see Nicole’s great techniques on coloring.
To create my sun, I punched out a circle on a piece of scrap paper and placed the paper in the corner and daubed three different yellow inks. I kept going over the circle with my daubers until I created the desired color that I wanted with the sunshine. I then rolled the corner and added a orange brad to match the sunshine.
Here’s the inside of my card. I love the Birthday Greetings stamp set for these occasions! I also stamped this great pirates flag from the Pirates set and adhered it with a little piece of sticky tape.
I hope that you have enjoyed today’s card! We will be celebrating this weekend in Pirates style! Brownies and lasagna are on the dinner menu! It will be another fun filled weekend ahead!
A special thank you to Mynnette for creating with us! We hope you have a wonderful weekend and Valentine’s Day! We look forward to seeing you on Monday! With love, Joanna & the IBS team xoxo
