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.

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.

Christmas is right around the corner and many of us are still looking for Christmas card and project ideas. Well at the Inspired Stamps blog you will find a new idea each week, this week it is my turn to share a project tutorial. Today I created a "card in a box" using the Shepherd boy and the standing sheep stamp and laying sheep stamp. I stamped the sheep several times on cardstock and watercolored the images using distress markers. There are several different versions of this "card in a box" on the internet, but I like this one the best because you can get two out of one 8.5 X 11 inch piece of cardstock. You cut the 11 inch side in half, to get two pieces of 8.5 X 5.5 inches.

I have wanted to make a coaster home decor item for a while and decided to make something for the Christmas season to go along with our 12 weeks of Christmas. Tomorrow I am the guest designer for the 12 weeks of Christmas post and I will have a special card project with instructions, so please be sure to check back.
Today I used 3 different shaped coasters. I look for these when they go on clearance since I know I will be covering them with my own designs, I don't worry about what is on them.
I used several Inspired Stamps sets for this project: 1.5 inch circle Christmas, Ask, Seek and Knock, Isaiah 9:6, Perfect Christmas Sentiments,Christmas verses and Typewriter text lowercase.
I covered the coasters with Christmas papers and stamped images and colored with Copic markers. I added embellishments such as, white enamel paint for snow on tree, colored pearls, punched corregated stars, rosette snowflake, etc...
Have a great day and be sure to check with the Inspired Stamps Online store for all of these sets and the Inspired Stamps blog for all the wonderful creations by our DT and to follow the 12 weeks of Christmas posts. Remember I will be back tomorrow with a special project for the 12 weeks of Christmas. Thanks for stopping by.

Fall is in the air. Most schools are taking Fall breaks, so at Inspired Stamps we are making Fall cards. Today I used the Flower Value Pack set for the sunflowers and stems and Perfect Sentiments for all the sentiments.
Inspired Stamps Online Store.
I colored and fussy cut all the sunflowers and stems.I added glossy accents and glitter to the center of each flower. I love the extra sparkle each flower provides to the card, but the glitter will not flake off because it is embedded in the glossy accents. I used dies for the label and the flower pot and the Fiskars grass border punch for the grass around the pot. I also used a Sizzix die to create the pop up element.
I thought it would be fun to open to a bouquet of flowers.
Please check out the other DT creations by visiting their websites and check out what is new for this weeks post as well as to follow the 12 weeks of Christmas posts over at the Inspired Stamps Blog.
Have a great day and be safe.
