Inspired By Stamping: Sending You + Van Life


Hello, friends!  Welcome to another release for the Inspired By Stamping online store!  Today we are sharing TWO fabulous new sets--Sending You and Van Life.  Both are SUPER fun and I know that you will need them in your stash soon!  Take a peek at the card I made using the Sending You set...


I stamped this sentiment from the Sending You set using red and black inks onto a focal panel.  I added some faux stitching, rhinestones, red cardstock, and ribbon to finish off this focal panel.


A doily, some digital patterned paper, and more red cardstock gussied up the card base and finished off the card.  I kept the colors simple and elegant--the fonts from the Sending You totally remind me of a 50's diner, and so do these colors!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Next up, the Van Life set!  This one is totally retro and SO MUCH FUN!  The images and sentiments are totally 60's!  Take a peek at the card I created using this set...


I decided that I wanted to make a fun scene using the images from the Van Life set.  I used a grass die and some gray cardstock to create the road, then added some flowers to add an anchor.  The flowers were punched out and have liquid pearls added to the centers.


The van image from this set was paper pieced, then popped up on the card base.  I added the sentiment as a banner up at the top then matted everything with black cardstock.


I am really happy with the way this cards turned out!  I LOVE the different patterns together, and I adore the way those flowers look, too!  I hope you agree--I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
