Inspired By Stamping: Designer Spotlight!


Hello, crafty friends and followers!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I'm excited to share that today I am the weekend spotlight designer for Inspired By Stamping! :)  These spotlights come directly to your inbox if you've signed up for the newsletter, so make sure you do that!  I've got a shabby card to share with you using LOTS of fun products from the Inspired By Stamping store, come and see...


I started this card by stamping the banner from A Lovely Birthday onto gray card.  I then heat embossed a sentiment from the Cute Circles stamp set in a light pink color.


This was added to the card base that was made using paper from the Vintage Floral Paper Pad, gray card, and some added stamping of the "LOVE" postage stamp image from A Lovely Birthday.  The patterned paper was distressed before adding it to the gray card for added texture.


For embellishments, I added some Cherry Blossoms, buttons, pearls, liquid pearl dots, lace trim, and sequin trim.  I also added some punched leaves and bright pink seam binding for added texture and to make the design more cohesive.



The end result is so much prettier than I had in my mind as I began this card!  I am very happy with it--what are your thoughts about this creation?  I hope you let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by today to look at my creation!  I hope you like it and that it's inspired you to create something of your own today!  If you do, please join in the fun with these fabulous challenge, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
