Inspired By Stamping: Birthday Lilacs


Hi, all!  I'm back with an unusually shaped card that uses gorgeous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store.  The reason it's shaped the way it's shaped is so I could use up some cardstock that just wasn't quite the right size. ;)  Come and take a look...


I stamped the flower and butterfly images from the Spring Lilacs stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto watercolor paper and then watercolored the image.


I then added a sentiment from the same Spring Lilacs stamp set, cut to look like a banner.  The bottom of the card was gussied up with a punched border, ribbon, and rhinestones for some shine.


I think that the use of the black and kraft card really helps to highlight the watercolored images, don't you?  The rhinestones and metallic stitched ribbon adds the perfect amount of shine, too.  I hope you agree that this turned out nicely!  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. :)


That's all for me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by--your visits make my day!  I hope you grab all these goodies from the Inspired By Stamping store today!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
