“Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me…”  Welcome to another post from me using amazing products from the Inspired By Stamping store.  This time, I’ve created a scene using some fabulous new stamps from our most recent release…come take a peek!

I started the creation of this scene by layering some white cardstock onto some snowflake printed glitter paper.  I added some Stickles to the snow drifts to add shine and dimension.

I then stamped some trees and a deer from the Build a Stocking stamp set and fussy cut them out.  I added a bit more texture with a bit of ultra thick embossing enamel.  I then added them to the scene and put some liquid pearls onto the trees to create faux ornaments.

The last step was to stamp and emboss a sentiment from the Festive Frames set onto the same specialty paper I used on the images.  I cut and punched the sides to make it look like a banner and then I added it to the card.

This panel was then added to the card base that also had some of the same snowflake printed glitter paper.  I love the final effect–the dimension looks amazing in real life!

Next up is Jo with three beautiful cards! Take it away Jo!

Hi fellow paper crafters Jo here, today I have made some cards using all New Arrival stamp sets  from Inspired By Stamping.

To create my own background I have repetitive stamped the Poinsettias on Naturals Ivory Cardstock. I have used Crumb Cake Ink as it is a light enough ink without taking away the focus of the centre Poinsettia.  The paper used for all cards is from Teresa Collins ‘Tinsel and Company’. To stamp I used Momento Luxe Inks pear tart for the leaves and Rhubarb stalk for the sentiment. To cut the bottom border I have used Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border #1 Die.

For the poinsettia  I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum card stock. The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2.

For the base I have used the star stamp from the Build a Stocking set with Gold & Silver Encore Ink.

The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2. I have inked using my Ranger mini ink tool with Peeled Paint & Peacock feathers.  Washi tape has been placed along the centre of the card along with gold sequins. For the bow I used a Satin Ribbon close to the peacock feathers ink as possible.

    Really lovely cards by both ladies. Fabulous images and work.

    I am not a FBer, but thanks for the insight into why companies are always asking people to like their page or photo or post. I never really understood it before. I am always disappointed when there are FB only comment contests, since that excludes me, but it makes more sense now.

    Thanks for sharing all the magnificent inspiration!!!
