Inspired By Stamping – Designer Stripes

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to today’s blog post. I think you all are getting to know me well enough to know that I love creating my own backgrounds and finding ways on what stamps to use to help stretch them that little bit further.




For the background I have placed all the Background Lines stampset on one huge acrylic block which I stamped twice on the white cardstock to cover the whole piece of cardstock. I blended each cardstock with the same colour ink that was used to stamp the stripes.

I also blended the inner circle stitched die cut & small tag the same shade of the distress inks.

Each dear & sentiment has been stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink which has been coloured in with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Each colours are listed below.
To finish off the card I have accented with enamel dots.
Hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and don’t forget to visit the Inspired By Stamping Blog.

Inspired By Stamping : Winter Friends

 Hi All, I have made some gift tags for you today with the Winter Friends September release stampset. I wanted to show you that this stampset is not just for Christmas but can also be used for birthdays & babies as well. I just love how versatile this stampset is and how much fun you can have with it.
I have created my own faux designer series paper by repeatedly white heat embossing the cute little images from the stampset. I have water coloured the stamped animal images in with watercolour pencils.
Each little tag has been stamped with sentiments from the Creative Tags stampset.
 To embellish the cards I have used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching and some decorative dots. Some fun ribbon has also been added to each tag to add some pop of colour to the grey and white cardstock.

Hope you enjoyed today’s creations. Happy Paper crafting peeps.
Hugs Jo
