Hopefully, your Sunday is already blessing you in measures of oodles!
Today, I have some projects to share that feature Antoinette's beautiful creations from Inspired Stamps. When Antoinette asked me to be a Guest Designer for the day, to help celebrate their 1st Birthday, I was thrilled! I had purchased a set or two, and had won a set or two, and had fallen hopelessly in love with their sweet stamp line. I'm thankful to have been asked!
This first card features the "Fall Gratitude" set. Don't you just LOVE it when the DP does all the hard work?
Coloring was done with colored pencils and mineral spirits.
|Supplies: Simple Stories "Generations" DP, Stampin'Up Ribbon, Amuse French Roast Ink, Bazzill CS.|
Next up is a very simple note card, using the set "Vintage Christmas".
|Supplies: Amuse Note Card, Amuse French Roast Ink, Ribbon from Hobby Lobby|
Again, the DP has done the tough work here! The stamps are from the "Choir Boy/Angel" set.
You have the choice of using the wings and halo, or leaving them off and using musical notes.
|Supplies: My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" DP, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, Copic Markers, Sparkly Fluff (Our Craft Lounge), Memory Box Frosty Border Die (Joan's Gardens), Diamond Stickles, Nestabilities Dimensional Squares|
This is another small note card, using stamps from the "Vintage Christmas" set.
I nearly stood on my head, but could not get rid of the shadows...sorry!
|Supplies: Stampin' Up White Ink, Diamond Dust Glitter, May Arts Ribbon, Amuse Note Card|
Having a son that is military, and has been twice deployed, and a future son-in-law who has been twice deployed (and is going again in 2012), this little guy captured my heart. Our son's eyes are almost exactly this color of blue! This is a center step card, and uses the "Military Solder" stamp.
|Supplies: BoBunny Snowfall Collection DP, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, Copic Markers, Nestabilities, Bazzill CS|
Last, is the "Nativity Set".
A while back, I had seen a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for a Pop-Up Stage Card, (by Kim Score) and decided that this sweet little Holy Family needed their own stage!
Here is the card closed with a belly band.
When the card opens, look what pops up!
|Supplies: Bazzill CS, Recollections Snowflakes, Echo Park DP, EK Success Border Punch, Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Copic Markers, Amuse Woodgrain DP, Sparkly Fluff (Our Craft Lounge), Killer White Tacky Tape (Creative Cuts & More).|
I hope that Antoinette's stamps have brought you a smile, today!
Hop on over to Inspired Stamps, and help them celebrate their 1st Birthday!
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs and Smiles!
