“Hi there stamping friends. Today I’m sharing a card set I created with this stamp set as my inspiration…
I also used the new Fancy Labels Die 3 set
I wanted to create a set that is cohesive but that each card would have it’s own personality. I used the same design for all of them plus the same background and stitching. To add personality to each one, I used different colors for the ink and also the ribbon that went with that particular card. I enjoyed created this set and it allowed me to use some supplies that I wouldn’t normally do.
I heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder to make it stand out against the background better.
I added some rhinestones to add some “shine” to the cards.
So there you have it. I hope my project inspired you to create a card set today.
Till next time,

Next up is our talented designer Irit with a lovely chalkboard gift bag! We love her black bag with the contrasting white with a lovely burst of blue! It is so lovely! Here’s Irit!
“My latest love is this Chalkboard paint and direct stamping over the chalkboard paint.
The best results are when you paint the bare wooden piece and then stamp with a clear embossing ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. This was the way this stamped gift bag was made: painted wooded bag from kids craft store, chalkboard cheap paint, clear ink and a lot of work.
I stamped all sides and then added some pearls as my flower centers. The stamp set used was this new May release one and then I added the sentiment using IBS new die set too.
You can also color the stamped images if you wish; I like this “bare chalkboard” affect more.”
A special thank you to Irit and Grace today for creating such lovely projects with our products. Thank you for stopping by and visiting us today! We have a great week ahead with lots more inspirations and tutorials!
