 Leah brings us such a beautiful Water Lily card today. We adore her lovely coloring and how she incorporated the paint splash from the Friends Forever set! Take it away, Leah!

Hello! Leah with you today and I want to share with you how lovely the new Flower of the Month:Water Lily from Inspired By Stamping looks paper pieced. I chose several different patterns, stamped and trimmed out all my pieces. It’s fun to piece them all back together and see the image come to life.

For my blue background I used the paint brush stroke image from Friends Forever and the label is stamped from that set as well after die cutting the double ended banner from Fancy Labels 3.

Here is a closer look at my paper pieced water lily and that fun frog. I added some bits of twine around my bow and some machine stitching and sequins finish it off. I hope you like it! Thanks so much for joining me today.

Supplies:

Flower of the Month: Water Lily

Friends Forever

Fancy Labels 3

Next up is Kendra! We love her 3D gift box featuring all sorts of IBS goodies! The colors are just perfect and her details are simply amazing! Here is Kendra!

Hello, Kendra here to also share a beautiful project with you!

I just love creating 3D projects!

So for today’s project, I decided to create a fun 3D Gift Box to give someone for their birthday:

How pretty!

I just LOVE the collection of stamps I used for this project!

The “for you” and “happy birthday” sentiments are part of the Creative Tags set!

In which I die cut using one of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die set! (I LOVE this die set!!)

For my main image, I used the hydrangea from the beautiful Graceful Hydrangea set!!

Such a beautiful image!!

Behind the image, on the green paper I clear embossed one of the pretty Vintage Background stamps!

Now for a look inside:

I didn’t realize I don’t currently have tissue paper, otherwise I would have had some in the box!

Anyway, here is a close-up of the sentiment inside:

Again I used the Fancy Labels 3 Die for this layered label, along with a sentiment that  is part of the Birthday Greetings set!!

I also added two butterflies from the Butterfly Wings set!

Such a fun package to give some!

Hope you have a lovely day!!

Supplies Used:
