Hey there crafty friends and welcome to Thursday. Before we get started we are saying goodbye to two designers today, Calypso and Rebecca. Both ladies have brought us gorgeous inspirations this past year and are stepping down to focus on other things. We want to wish them the best. Thank you for a wonderful year creating with our stamps!

Today, Leah is showcasing an adorable Kleenex box using our Princess set! Toooo cute! Oh I just can’t wait to share this one with you! Here is Leah!
Hello stamping friends! Leah here today:) My daughter is a total girly girl which I am so thankful and happy for as I am too! She loves pink, polka dots and all things princess so I thought I’d add a fun new decoration for her room by fancying up her box of tissues for her room. I pulled out the fabulous Princess set from Inspired By Stamping to get started with.
I chose some pretty floral paper to stamp the princess dress on and trimmed it out. I did the same thing for the wand and tiny crown. I then die cut a Fancy Labels 1 and stamped the coordinating frame in pink. I punched a tiny flower and added a rhinestone to the middle and layered them all together onto my aqua background that I had stamped the little sparkles onto in white ink.
For my polka dot top I pulled out Background Basics III and stamped the entire thing before assembling it. For my chevron borders I used the sweet Chevrons set. The template for the tissue box cover was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. A few sequins and a border with some tiny rhinestones finish my tissue box fit for a princess. 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful day!
Next up is Rebecca featuring her last card with us. We adore her Vintage Dress with the beautiful purple paper, rhinestones and pearls. Here is Rebecca with her last card.
Hello everyone and welcome. A year has past since I joined the Inspired By Stamping design team. It has been a wonderful experience, working with such talented women. Joanne kindly invited me to remain for year two, but I have become a CASA (court appointed child advocate) this past year and advocating for children who are under the protection of the Department of Child Safety has struck a deep cord in me. For that reason, I’m paring back on some of my other commitments. My sincere thanks to you Joanna and the entire team for such a terrific year.
Today’s card uses another one of my many favorite stamp sets from the past year, Vintage Dress Form…
I stamped the dress form and heat embossed the strings of white pearls before cutting it out. An offset patterned paper in the background and a leafy die cut create the setting for the mannequin. Some extra pearl and aurora borealis flourishes that were packed into my traveling, crafting suitcase were layered on top, along with some extras rhinestones that filled the neckline of the dress form. Sometimes, more can be better!..
The beautiful font of the birthday sentiment that’s included in this set, is so lovely. The i is dotted with another left over crystal. This was a quick and easy card to create, especially because my choices were limited! It’s one of the advantages to crafting while traveling!
Thanks for stopping in and I’ll be popping into your mailbox very soon~
Sending blessings and hugs on my way to Devon in England,
A special thank you to Rebecca and Leah for creating with us. And thank you for stopping by today. We appreciate your support and continual support! We will see you tomorrow for our Friday post!
With paper hugs, Joanna
