Before we begin, we’d like to say a special thank you to all our Instagram friends!  If you are not on Instagram, you must! It is such a great community of crafters and friends and filled with lots of inspiration! It’s our new hangout spot here at Inspired by Stamping!

We begin today with a lovely card by Nupur featuring our Aster set! I adore how she paired it up with the Teeny Tiny Greetings and placed the sentiment on an angle! What a great idea. Here’s Nupur!

Hello Friends…

How have you been ? Here is a card I made with IBS goodies…

First I stamped the Aster flower stamp from Asters stamp set on a water color cardstock with black archival ink & colored them with distress inks. I cut the colored piece as a tag, matted it with black cardstock & added some faux stitching & some black & white twine…

Next I stamped checkers patterns from Autumn Blessings stamp set in pale green ink & the diamonds from the Diamonds stamp set in baby pink & grey ink on strips of white cardstock… I adhered them on black cardstock & cut them diagonally & adhered on my card base…

Lastly I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Greetings on my card base along the pattern paper that I had previously stamped… My tag went on top of this with foam tape & then I added some bling for that sparkle on my clean & simple card…

Thank you for visiting…

Next up is the talented Vicki with a beautiful card! Isn’t that sponging just superb!?! Take it away, Vicki!

Hi all – Vicki here.  Lately in blogland,  I have been seeing sponging behind images.  I love the way it draws your eye to the focal image.

It does help when you use the beautiful image from Flower of the month; Asters.  I sure enjoy trying different ways of coloring this lovely flower.  I think the partial coloring makes for an interesting effect.

That’s it for me today — I’ll be back in a couple of weeks~
