Inspired by Stamping Flower of the Month Asters Cards

Hello crafty friends. Im  here today to share with you a couple of cards I made using the Flower of the Month: Aster stamp set that was released this month over at Inspired by Stamping. I had so much fun coloring up this beautiful flower.

Since fall officially began on the 22nd of September here in the States I decided to use fall colors for my card. I started with a white card base measuring 4.25" by 5.5". I layered a few pattern papers using Webster pages.

I stamped the Asters using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto white cardstock and colored in this beautiful flower using my Copic markers. After the image was all colored in, I used a spellbinders circle die to cut out the image, layered it onto a beautiful paper doily I had in my stash, and adhered it to the center of my card. I have noticed a lot of beautiful butterflies flying around our yard the last few days so it inspired me to add a couple of them to my card. To finish off the card, I added a sweet sentiment from the same stamp set.

My second card:

Can you tell I am having alot of fun playing with this stamp? 
To create this card:
Plum cardstock and pattern paper: Stampin up
Stamps: Inspired by stamping "Flower of the month- Aster"
Dies : Inspired by stamping Fancy label 3 Dies
Spellbinders die
Inks: Distress ink/ Stampin up ink pad
Pearls: my stash

Thats it for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a beautiful week.

Here's the hop order
Shan (you are here)

Now for my card:

To create this card I started with a white card base that measures 4.25"x5.25". I took a piece of light blue card-stock, used my scorboard to score diagonal lines 1 inch apart to create this diamond checkered pattern and glued it to the card base. I then heat embossed the Welcome little angel sentiment. This beautiful stamp is from the Inspired by Stamping Big Notes III Stamp set. I cut out 2 stars on white card-stock and added some crystal stickles to the stars. To finish off the card, I added a piece of white ribbon and some flat back pearls. I just love the way this turned out. 

Grace, Congratulations on your new bundle of joy!

Shabby Chic heart wall hanging

Good morning all. I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. As for myself, I have the flu. It came on rather quickly Thursday night and will be sooo glad when it is gone. I did manage to craft for a couple hours yesterday morning. 

A while back I was online shopping online looking for some fiber trim and ran across this absolutely gorgeous trim. When I purchased it I had thought about making some cute fuzzy crochet hearts for my projects. Well that was a real bust for me as I am a beginner and the fibers are so thick that I couldn't find my work thru it all. Lol. So I decided to take some floral stems and shape them into a heart. I then wrapped the fuzzy trim around the heart and this is the outcome.

Isn't it beautiful? I made this for a dear friend who is always so supportive of all my work. I really hope she likes this. 

Well it's 2 am. I am off to try to get more rest. Thank you so much for stopping by.

My first post for Inspired by Stamping

Hello crafty friends.I hope you all had a wonderful week. Im here today to share with you  a starburst card I made using one of the beautiful sentiment stamps in the Big notes in French stamp set. I absolutely love the big notes stamp sets as there is always a perfect sentiment for any occasion and they are all so elegant.

To create this card, I layered black and pink card stock then created the starburst pattern using papers from Bo Bunny. I then stamped the sentiment with memento black tuxedo ink. I then added some pink and black trim to the bottom of the starburst. To embellish the card I fussy cut a couple of butterflies out of the paper collection I used and bent the wings up to give it a bit of dimension.
