Welcome crafty friends to a great day of inspirations. Happy May! We are so glad you are here! Today we have the talented Irit and Evgenia here sharing beautiful cards! First, Irit has a fun and adorable kid card to share. Next, Evgenia is sharing her first card with us featuring our Fancy Circles stamp set!


Before we get started we’d like to say thank you to our Facebook fans! We are up to 3,170 fans! Whoo Hoo! Hop on over to check out our site for more Inspired by Stamping inspirations and beautiful cards from our designers!

Our first card is from our talented designer Irit. She has created a fun-filled black card with bright features throughout! What a great card for a grandbaby or child. Here is Irit sharing her card with us!

Usually, in my non crafty life, I am not a trendy person, but then, when I craft, the sky is a limit and I can try some trends I would never try out of crafting.

This Happy Birthday card I made for IBS blog post is this mix trends card with quite a nice final result. I stamped Happy Birthday title from Happy Sentiments set with fluorescent embossing powder (trend #1 is Fluorescent) using black cardstock as my base (trend #2 is black backgrounds). Then I stamped a lot of flowers and leaves using IBS Little Flowers set heat embossed with the same green fluorescent powder and 2 shades of fluorescent pinks (trend #1 again, but different color).

I made two flower cluster over the card (trend #3 is clusters) and added Owl sticker in the middle (trend #4, the pretty old and never ending, are owls). As the final touch I added some paint splashes with bright paints (trend #5 is adding splashes/paints/mists even if you don’t need them) and some crystals (trend #6 is blings all over, the more the better). As I said, I do like my card, but let’s be clear: you can make your own art and not to follow all trends. But then, if you don’t, most probably you wouldn’t get much “Likes” when you post it on your FB page/Instagram/Pinterest (lucky #7 trend that we all use)

Happy Sentiments

Next up, we have Evgenia sharing a shabby chic card with us. We love how she used the circle stamp with the doily. The colors are so soft and elegant too. Here is Evgenia with her card.

I have prepared a shabby chic card for you,using the vintage sepia ink for stamping my sentiment, i just love that its more muted and maintains the shabby look of a card even more.
