Marzena starts today with a gorgeous journal book filled with antique pages of our new Sweet Pea stamp set! The distressed pages are amazing and brings out the beauty of our images. Here is Marzena sharing this lovely journal with us.

Hi there, Marzena here!

I have made an album/notebook/folder for collecting memories, pieces of anything what makes you remember the beautiful moments. Every page has a pocket for this type of regards as photos, coupons, tickets, etc…

My album is very vintage with a retro feeling. In some of the pages I used the great IBS newest stamps:

Our next project is from Irit. She is sharing a beautiful altered cross stitch loop featuring our Mother’s Day Bouquet stamp set. This would make a beautiful Mother’s Day gift. Here is Irit sharing her project with us!

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first post with IBS delicious March release.

This is the time we all think about Mothers day (takes time to buy products and to make some projects, so usually those releases are around March). So here is my fancy altered cross- stitch hoop and my very much stamped finished project.

Inspired by Stamping, Irit Shalom, Mother's Day Bouquet Stamp Set, altered cross stitch hoop

I stamped over the patterned paper with clear embossing ink and black embossing powder and colored the stamped flowers with distress markers. Then I arranged the colored piece into the hoop and made the stamped and die cut with IBS dies set sentiment. Another sentiment from the same set was added on the corner of the large one. I didn’t embellish this piece a lot, but with some lace, trims and a few pearls only. I wanted my stamped flowers to be the star of this project and not to add more embellishments around. ~ Irit”
