Instyle Stamps

HI All,

I received this adorable digi stamp called "Kissing Birds" from Instyle Stamps and I just couldn't wait to use it....I thought it would make the cutest wedding card since the male bird has a top hat....
I found this pretty black and white swirl paper and this is how the card ended up....

Hope you like it...

Until next time....have a great time crafting...

Instyle Stamps March Blog Hop

Hi all,
Yep, it is that time again....time for another fun blog hop.

Instyle Stamps is hosting their monthly blog hop full of inspiration, great images and did I mention fun?
The theme is Easter.
If you stumbled upon my blog the blog hop starts at the Instyle Stamps Blog here.
If you came to my blog from Jodi's blog, you are on the right track....
.....I used Instyle Stamps image of an Easter Basket to create my card. I did not use the typical Easter eggs in a basket, instead I chose to use (for the first time) Flower Soft. I purchased this about 6-8 months ago and this is the first time I used it. I thought I would make an Easter basket full of flowers.

Here is my card with using the Easter basket and Flower Soft:

Closer view:

Hope you enjoyed the blog hop.....Your next stop is at Joy's blog....
Have fun....

Instyle Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone....and welcome to another Instyle Stamps sketch challenge...

I used the Instyle Stamps Angelfish for my design team card. You can find the Angelfish here. I put Liquid Glass all over the angelfish after I colored him to make him look glossy and shiny. The background paper reminded me of it was blue, like water.

Here is my card using Angelfish...
Closer view of the Liquid Glass....

Have a fun filled week of crafts....
