Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello and happy Thursday!
Today the Inspired Stamps DT is creating projects using scripture.  I chose Psalm 119:50 from the His Word set.  I used some dies for making Project Life Journaling cards.  I embossed the Co'ordinations cardstock with circle flower embossing folder and sanded to bring out the green core.  I used the BoBunny Primrose 6 X 6 paper stack that will be available in the Inspired Stamps Etsy store very soon.  I die cut the flowers and layered using both sides of cardstock.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the other DT projects.  Stop by the Inspired Stamps blog to see what new stamps will be available for purchase on Friday.  Remember all these stamps can be purchased in the Etsy store and all purchases over $25.00 in the US are free when you use the code provided.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello and happy Thursday.  I have a new card using the Hymn Girl: Sitting Here Thinking stamp.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I fussy cut it out and then used foam tape to add to a die cut oval that I used distress inks to create a sky background.  I used a piece of brown cardstock embossed with woodgrain embossing folder, a piece of green Bazzill cardstock and a piece of the Madeline collection from BoBunny 6 X 6 paper pad.  The sentiment is from the Card Ministry Basic stamp set.

Please be sure to check out the Inspired Stamps blog for more card ideas using this Hymn Girl line of stamps and be sure to visit the new Etsy shop to purchase these sets and many others.  All US orders of 25.00 or more have free shipping with code 25freeshipping.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all having a great week.  I must admit I am feeling a bit under the weather.  Today's assignment for the DT is a "love" card.  I tried lots of different ideas, but I was just did not like how things were turning out, so finally due to my not feeling the best and my frustration I did a literal interpretation of this assignment.  I used the Typewriter text lowercase. I just stamped each letter and punched with a .75 inch square and then used Spellbinder dies (smallest) to do scallop square.  I added a button and some Coats metallic thread for the "o".  I embossed a piece of red cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder.

Please be sure to check the Inspired Stamps blog for more "love" cards from the rest of the talented DT and be sure to check tomorrow for new release stamps remember you can buy Inspired Stamps at the new Etsy location.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
P.S. The surgeon was very pleased with the progress my daughter is making but she must wait until the end of February to resume all normal activity.  This is to make sure that her bones have completely fused and she won't have any complications.  We have come this far so we will continue to wait.  God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello Everyone.  Inspired Stamps DT is back.  I have been gone longer due to my daughter's back surgery.  The Lord is good and she had a very good surgery and her recovery has gone quite well. We go back to the surgeon today to see how she is progressing and if she can be released for normal activity.  It was a scary thing but the Lord was with her and the rest of the family through it all.  It is this experience that inspired my choice of scripture for today's card.  What ever we might be going through we need to remember that God is always for us, if we are His children.

I made an easel card with the BoBunny Madeline Collection papers and the Romans 8:31 individual scripture stamp.  I punched out flowers from the same papers and leaves from some green textured cardstock.
Remember that Inspired Stamps has a new online location and all orders of $25.00 or more have free shipping in the US. Please visit the Etsy store to see all the scripture stamps available.  Make sure to visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration, with lots of card ideas and on new stamp releases every Friday.
Have a great day.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello everyone.  Hope you are having a great week.  Most of you are probably getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. Next week the DT does not have a post due to the holiday, but today we were asked to use more than one character and to create a scene.  I used Winter Boy HLO and Winter Girl HLO, Fir trees and 1.5 inch Christmas circles sets to create my scene.  I made a 4" wide stair step card.  The back panel I stamped with two different inks the fir trees (two sizes) and then inked the background with distress inks and added white dots with a gel pen (falling snow).

W#hen I took the picture with the card sitting, the camera wanted to focus on the front, so I took a picture with card folded shut below, so you could see the different characters positions in scene.
I colored the HLO's with Copic markers and fussy cut and popped up on the card.  I embossed the white panels with snowflake embossing folder.  Hope you enjoy the DT creations today and set your eyes and mind on things above and have things to be truely thankful.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello Everyone, It is Thursday and the Inspired Stamps DT is back with some new projects.  Today we were asked to make anything that included scripture.  My brain is still on Christmas projects since we are less than two months away.  I haven't placed stamped images on candles lately so I thought I would try with tea lights.  I used Inspired Stamps: Spring Sketches and Ephesians 5:20 individual scripture to decorate the tea lights and the the box.  

I cut out several circles of tissue paper with my Spellbinder circle dies.   I found it worked best if you cut several layers at a time with a piece of paper or cardstock on top.  This helps everything to cut nice and neat and release from the die.  I used the carstock piece as a template to find center to punch hole in tissue paper for the wick to come through.  I stamped on the tissue paper with Versafine ink and then turned each piece over to color with Copics (on the backside) and then punched the center hole using the cardstock template.  I then applied heat with my heat tool and melted the tissue paper to the top of the tea light.  I made the box and decorated with more Spring Sketches stamps and then added the scripture.  Voila, you are ready to give a small gift to a sweet friend.  You could leave the outside silver cup showing or wrap in decorative paper or do as I did and wrap with Washi tape.
I hope you enjoyed my project.  Make sure to check Inspired Stamps Blog for the rest of the DT projects and the continuation of the 12 weeks of Christmas posts each Friday for more inspiration.  Have a great day.
