“Hello there Inspired by Stamping friends. Today I’d like to share with you a card I created with beautiful products from the IBS store along with scraps from a previous project. As most of you know, last month IBS teamed up with Die Versions for a fun blog hop. I used the background die as a mask and created a one of a kind accent on my scrapbook page found here.

I loved the effect of the mist on the cardstock so much that I decided to use that as a background on this card. Because the paper had glittery mist on it, I decided to use a gold embossing powder for my sentiment to make the elements coordinate.

I added a satin trim and a yellow from, both from the IBS store to finish off this card.

What do you all think?

Looking for a soft and feminine Mother’s Day card? Nupur has created just that today. Our Mother’s Day Bouquet sentiment pairs up so beautiful with the die, details and softness on her card. Here is Nupur sharing her card today!

Hello friends…

Today I made a very feminine mother’s day card…

I have kept this card monochromatic with very soft color..

The front panel is made with clear acetate sheet with intricate die cut & inked borders…

I decided to add the sentiment on the inside as the front panel is see through …

I die cut & inked the cardstock & used a beautiful paragraph sentiment from Mother’s Day Bouquet to stamp in the center of this die cut. If you are looking for some beautiful sentiments for your mother then this is the perfect set complete with sentiments & floral bouquet stamp…

I decided to add some pearls on the die cut border to add a bit more sophistication… 🙂

Thank you for visiting today … see you soon with my next post…
