Little Man layout *Inspired by Stamping*

Although my Ipod photos are not the best quality, I love how I can easily capture everyday moments and those special time that I would have never been able to photograph because my big camera was not easily accessible at that time. Such was the case when my son came home from scouts with a made up mustache. He was funny and I love how he was open to being silly. Definitely shows that this little dude has come a long way from the time where everything stresses him out. 

Little Man Layout
I used some Inspired By Stamping stamps to add some fun elements on this page. I love how the chevron paper background brings in some "trendy" look to this page.

I added some of the fun hexagon stamps on three different parts of the page. I used different inks to add the designs to each of the hexagon shape.

I then used some white embossing powder to add the stamped phrases to the page. It easily conveyed what I feel for my little man!

I added some sprinkling of orange mist on the page to add some grunge and a bit of everyday imperfection to the page.

So there you have it. Thank you for stopping by.

I love you because card *Inspired By Stamping*

Hello blog friends. Today Inspired By Stamping is sponsoring the latest challenge for  Cute Card Thursday. The theme for the challenge is Springtime and when I grabbed by Springs Lilac Paper from IBS, I knew instantly that I wanted to showcase that for my card. 

I love you because card
I used some green solid paper as a background for all the purple in my papers. I added a pink flower to break off some of the monochromatic look in this card. I used some purple rhinestone to create a visual triangle in the card. 

The sentiment is so pretty and perfect to give to that special someone that is always there for you.

Thinking of you always card *Inspired By Stamping*

One of my favorite things to do when creating cards is figuring out how to add and layer elements without making it look busy. I think I was able to pull that off with this card, what do you think?

Thinking of you Always card
I used a white cardstock as a base. Then I layered it with some beautiful papers from the Vintage Floral pad. I stamped some Ticket stamp images on white cardstock, trimmed and then used colored pencils to add some color to the design. I then layered a scallop purple die cut circle with another paper from Vintage Floral paper and then topped it off with a paper flower.

To create a visual triangle in the card, I added some rhinestone that matched the color of the flower. 

So there you have it. Thank you for joining me today.

Vintage Floral Paper Pad, Inspired By Stamping
Vintage Tickets, Inspired By Stamping
Cardstock- (white) Walmart; (purple) WorldWin papers

Sending you best wishes card *Inspired By Stamping*

Hello friends. Sorry I've been extremely quiet in the blog. Life is taking over. 

Anyways, today I'm sharing a birthday card I created using some Inspired By Stamping Vintage Floral papers and a greeting from the Trendy Circle Sentiment stamp set. 

Sending you best wishes card
I love the designs and color palette of the Vintage Floral. It's so dainty. I used it to cover most of my card. I added some leaves to add texture to it. I punched out a white circle from scrap cardstock and added my sentiment to it. I created some pen stitching around the inside edge of the circle to direct the eye more to the birthday greeting.

Cardstock- White, Walmart; (others) WorldWin Papers
Pattern papers- Vintage Floral, Inspired By Stamping
Stamp- Trendy Circle Sentiment set, Inspired By Stamping
