Inspired by Stamping and Die-Versions Blog Hop

Hi everyone! 

Welcome to the Inspired by Stamping and Die-Versions Blog Hop.  
Twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. Yay!!! 

Inspired by Stamping, which designs and manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters, has teamed up with Die-Versions, makers of low profile metal dies which works with virtually every machine out there and cuts through most materials, to create this special eye candy of Spring themed projects.

One lucky "hopper" will get a total prize package of $100 in gift certificates, a $50 gift certificate from Inspired by Stamping AND Die-Versions, so you can stock up on some awesome products both of these companies have to offer.

For your chance to win the grand prize, visit all of the participating blogs, leaving a comment at each, then leave a comment telling us what you like the most about Spring at the Inspired by Stamping blog.  All comments entered between now and April 28th at 10pm (Pacific time) will be eligible for the grand prize.  

Look at all of the amazing products that I was lucky enough to create with!
There was so much Die-Versions and Inspired by Stamping goodness, that I hardly
knew where to begin!


For this first card, I die cut the Amazing frame, and actually used the trimmed to fit outside piece as a background for my focal panel.  Since I really wanted the Inspired by Stamping Designer papers to be seen, all three of my cards are pretty clean and simple.
Die-Versions DVSF-005 Sweet Frames 'Amazing' Die, Inspired by Stamping 'It's Your Birthday' , Spring Lilacs 6 x 6 Designer Paper Pad, and Crochet Lace.  Other supplies: Kraft cardstock, Bazzill Cardstock, Tombow adhesive, Amuse Studio Ink.

For this card, the background was stamped with several of the stamps from the 'It's Your Birthday' set.
The beautiful Teardrop border punch was used to add some dimension.
Die-Versions Whispers DVW-351 'Teardrop Punch Border', Inspired by Stamping 'It's Your Birthday' and 'Arrows', Crochet Lace. Other supplies: Black and blue cardstocks, Baker's Twine, Dimensional Foam, Tombow Adhesive, Amuse Studio Ink. Also used my wonderful Mini Rulers from Perfect Paper Crafting to get my nice, even mats. See my sidebar for details!

For this card, I wanted the die and paper to be the focal point!
Die-Versions DVB-013 Express Banners 'Hooray' , Inspired by Stamping Spring Lilacs 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Crochet Lace, and Pink Roses. Other Supplies: Kraft Cardstock, Bazzill Cardstock, Dimensional Foam, Tombow Runner and Mono Adhesives. Again, my Mini Rulers from Perfect Paper Crafting were used for this nice straight mat! See my sidebars for details!
Your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented Grace Tolman.  If you ever get lost in the hop, you can always go back to the beginning, Die-Versions blog, for the complete order list.

Thanks for stopping by!
Patti J.
