Welcome Crafty Friends! Thursday is here already and Mother’s Day is just a few days away! Any fabulous plans? Today, Leah and Mynnette are here sharing gorgeous inspirations.

Our May release is just around the corner! Starting next Monday we will be bringing you sneak peaks and inspirations with 5 new stamp sets & a brand new die! There will also be prizes everyday! We can’t wait for the fun to begin!
Leah is sharing a beautiful Mother’s Day box filled with beautiful and stunning details! Here is Leah with her project!
One of the things I am most thankful for in my life is my mom. We’ve had our rough spots but thankfully have worked through them and she is one of my best friends. I needed a box to house a little gift for her so this is what I made.
I started by cutting my box and wreath using my Silhouette Cameo and then got to stamping. I pulled out Happy Sentiments for my sentiment that I placed inside the wreath. I just love that big, scripty “happy” and since it’s such a versatile set it had “mother’s day” which of course was perfect. I then pulled out Delicate Doilies II for my borders. I love how it added such a lacey feel with just stamping. For my butterflies I used Butterfly Wings and colored each with a Copic marker.
For more dimension I added some rolled roses, a bit more Copic coloring and some glitter to my wreath, oh and of course some pearls. Pearls make everything better 🙂 I hope you’ll take some time to make your mom or someone who has been like a mother to you something special to say how much you love them. Have a wonderful day!
Next up is Mynnette with this bright and cheery birthday card! This would brighten up anyone’s day! We love how she created a shaker card with our Vintage Roses too! Take it away, Mynn!
“Hi, friends! It’s time for another post from me for the Inspired By Stamping store! I’ve decided to do something a little bit different and totally new for me–I’ve made my first ever shaker card! Take a peek!
I started by stamping the smaller rose from the Vintage Roses set and coloring it with Spectrum Noir markers. I then punched it out and layered it to create the shaker piece. I used various sequins from my stash as the filling! 🙂
Next, I punched out a border, layered some polka dot papers, some red satin ribbon, and added some rhinestones that were also colored in with Spectrum Noir pens. I finished up with a sentiment from the Just Because set.
That’s it for me today! I hope you enjoy my bold and bright first ever shaker card! Hop over to the store to buy some fabulous products! Next week will be our newest release–EEK!–so stay tuned for more! HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
