Inspired Stamps: Spring 2013 New Release

Happy Friday, blog friends! I'm coming to you today to showcase one of the new Spring releases from Inspired Stamps called Spring Sketches! Be sure to check the blog to see all the other new releases my fellow design team members will be showcasing today. This stamp set as well as the other new releases will be live in the Inspired Stamps store today!

I made two cards, one using the Ecclesiastes 3:11 scripture included in this set and two of the flowers. For the pink rose, for purposes of symmetry, I layered it on top of the same flower stamp that the blue flower was from, but trimmed it down some. On the card with the butterfly, I chose to shadow stamp it to make it a frontal view of the whole butterfly instead of a side view. A great versatile stamp indeed! The side view is great too, especially if you don't have as much room in your card design! I love theses sketch stamps, they stamp beautifully and look almost as if you had drawn them yourself.

Here's the full stamp set, isn't it gorgeous?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
 Inky and glittery fingers for all!

  • Ribbon Carousel Blog's Spring is in the air challenge.
  • Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog: By the numbers challenge. When crafting with my mom as a young girl in late the 80's (eeek), my mom always said embellishments needed to be in odd numbers or else hey didn't look as good.  I tend to agree, so for the jewels on my flower card I did groups of three, and for my butterfly card I used seven jewels semi-clustered in odd numbers .
