IBS New Release - Vintage and Lovely


Today is the final day that we are showcasing the projects we've made with this month's Birthday Bash release in honor of Inspired By Stamping's second birthday!  Two stamp sets are being featured, Vintage Birthday and A Lovely Birthday, both of which will be available for sale tomorrow, October 10.

I've kept this card pretty simple to let the sentiment strut its stuff and embossed the base layer with a houndstooth pattern to match that of the Girl Digital Paper and Printables, also available tomorrow. 

I absolutely LOVE the Vintage Birthday stamp.  It's large and makes a statement all by itself without needing a lot of additional decorations, and if you'll check the additional information below you'll see how you can get this stamp for FREE.

The little LOVE postage stamp is from A Lovely Birthday and was printed on the new digital paper, which I reduced in size to fit the stamp.  Both that stamp and the sentiment stamp (and mats) were printed on shapes that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo from the FREE cut files that Joanna so generously offers with many of her stamp sets.

I used some hand-dyed seam binding, some pearls and a Two-tone IBS Flower to finish the front of the card.

The inside was finished with a sentiment from today's featured set as well as a stamped-off image of the LOVE stamp.

Thank you for joining me and I hope you'll go visit the rest of the Design Team to see their lovely creations.
