IBS New Release - Just Because and Vintage Thread


Today we begin showcasing the new Inspired By Stamping stamp sets, and the two sets being featured today are Just Because and Vintage Thread, both of which I have combined into one card. 

I loved making this card because I also used Joanna's new Vintage Digital Paper which coordinates so beautifully with the vintage images.  All stamp sets and papers will be available November 10.

I used the new digi paper with script as the base for the sentiment panel, on top of which I stamped a frame from the Fancy Labels 2 set.  On top of that I stamped the large sentiment "Just Because", then fussy cut around the entire image and inked the edges.

The spool was also stamped on the script digi paper, fussy cut, then inked on the edges before I wrapped it with a bit of pink 1/8" ribbon.  If you don't like fussy cutting (and I usually don't), Joanna offers FREE cut files with many, if not most, of her stamp sets.

I added stitching in soft pink thread to the floral corner panels and some IBS Flowers as well as some soft blue pearls (which I colored with alcohol markers).

On the inside I stamped many of the sentiment "completions" from the Just Because set, first stamping off twice so they'd be very faint, then stamped the main sentiment in deep rose ink.

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