Yesterday, I received one of the biggest surprises of my business career. My beautiful designers all got together and made beautiful birthday cards for me! What an amazing surprise! I was watching t.v. last night and thought I’d better just check my emails one more time as it was a busy weekend with our customers because of release week. And there pops up on my ipad a post from IBS. And my first thought was, oh dear what did I just do??? Thinking that I accidently posted something and then I started reading. Oh the tears that started flowing! My kids and hubby kept asking me if I was o.k.! And I just couldn’t stop crying! My heart is so full of love, appreciation and I am so touched by the beautiful cards and posts that they all created!
I just want to say a special thank you to my amazing designers! I wouldn’t be who or where I am without these gorgeous ladies. They are what helps create Inspired by Stamping and bring beautiful inspiration with the stamps that I draw!

Today, we have some gorgeous inspirations using our new Big Holidays stamp set! We begin today with the talented Irit! Isn’t this just the neatest card! For all us book lovers this would be a great card to receive, not only during the holidays but for a birthday card too! Take it away, Irit!
“Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to show you my first card made with new Inspired by Stamping October release.
I used Big Holidays sentiment set here and this is the best ever sentiment set! You have sentiments for Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year in great size with lovely fonts and it’s just one set you need for all of those Holidays crafts.
I made the book shape card from a think cardstock, then added dry embossed and painted piece as my book front and spine and then added a few thin chipboards painted into some gold shade. Then I made the sentiment panel with IBS die cut and one of the sentiments, stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with gold. It looks kind of a simple card, but then it was done with inks, paints, die cutting, heat and dry embossing and even with embellishments. Try it! Book shaped cards are lovely!
Next up is Marzena with gorgeous Christmas tags! These are soooo pretty! And we love how she omitted the bottom sentiment of this stamp! What a great idea! Take it away, Marzena!
Hi everyone, Marzena with Christmas gift tags!
I have made a set of two gift tags which could be used as an Christmas ornament as well. The project is very light and with a lot of free spaces.
Is done in shabby chic style which gives it a winter touch.
I used one of the Big Holidays stamp set only stamping the big phrase just to save the space and not to cover all the composition.
Hope you like my card and will share with us your projects with the Big Holidays stamps as well 🙂
See you soon!
