Happy Thursday! We hope you are having a wonderful week. Our suitcases are almost packed and ready. You can follow what’s happening with me on my personal Instagram page!  It is the hardest thing to decide which craft things to bring and which ones to leave behind. Yikes!

Today, Leah and Calypso are with us bringing gorgeous inspirations! But first, just a reminder about our fabulous blog candy that is currently underway!

Leah has created a set of beautiful bookmarks that will leave you swooning! These are just fantastic! Here is Leah!

Hello friends! I love to read good books and usually have a couple going at one time. I was just starting one the other day when I realized I needed more bookmarks. So I whipped up a few using some lovely Inspired By Stamping goodies.

I started by die cutting some bookmark bases and then die cutting the oval from Fancy Labels 3 Dies. I then stamped each oval using the coordinating Fancy Labels 3 stamp set. I knew I wanted a flower in each of the oval frames so I chose three different ones for variety.

For my first one I chose the pretty Crocus image from Garden Seed Packets. I colored all my flowers with Copic markers.

I did a bit of masking on this one because the original image is far to large to fit in the oval, but it wasn’t hard to use the lovely Flower of the Month Lily of the Valley.

For my last one I used the beautiful rose spray in the Fancy Labels 3 stamp set. For my lacey trims I used Delicate Doilies II. I hope you enjoyed my project and maybe you’ll be inspired to make some new bookmarks for yourself or a friend! Have a beautiful day.

Good morning….Calypso here and I am so happy to be posting for IBS this week.

When I returned from my vacation, I was happy to find May release stamps in my mailbox!! I have been swooning over what the rest of the team has created thus far with them!!   So today it’s my turn to sprinkle a bit of inspiration.

Isn’t this lovely?  My card is a standard A2 size, so this should provide you with some indication of how big the stamp is.  I wanted to make the flowers pop. So I colored them with a white color pencil. I was not too pleased with the results, because the black line was now every faint.  I could not locate a sharp pencil to trace over the lines, so I had to come up with plan B.

Since color pencils leave a waxy smooth finish, this prevented me from trying any other type of medium.  Instead of starting all over, I turned to fussy cutting!!  🙂  Nothing like a like patience and a good pair of small scissors can’t fix!

Here is a closer look at the flowers. Now it POP’s like I wanted it to!!  Love coloring on kraft cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.
