IBS New Release - Octagons and Arrows

Hello!

Today we are showcasing two new Inspired By Stamping sets, Octagons and Arrows, which will be available for purchase on July 10!

My card uses the super cool cut files that Joanna includes (for FREE) with many of her stamp sets.  The Octagon background, Arrow, and sentiment (from the Arrows set) were all cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  No fussy cutting for me!  So if you have a die cutting machine, just know that these stamp sets, which are already uber versatile, become even more so with their FREE cut files.

And did I say the files are included for FREE?  Heh.


I heat embossed the little octagons (which are the punch outs from the background piece) as well as the arrow.

Here's another view which includes one of the little hearts that I painted with red shimmer paint.  I LOVE that the sentiment also has a cut file because I didn't have a paper punch that would have fit it properly.

A couple of rhinestones finish this simple but sweet card off.

Thank you so much for joining me today, and I urge you to go visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have prepared for you using these wonderful stamp sets!

Such a sweet card, Shea! I haven't seen a card remotely similar in design - and it really is a heartfelt card with the design and sentiment. I love when the artwork in the card "matches" the sentiment so beautifully. Very sweet. hugs, de
