Inspired by Stamping Sneak Peek Blog Hop......

Hi there, I'm back today with some sneak peeks of this month's Inspired by Stamping new releases, as usual they are just gorgeous !!!! This month there are 5 new stamp sets, I'm going to kick off with the Fancy Alphabet. I don't think you can have to many alphabets and this one is beautiful with upper and lower case letters.
Jodie and Paige bought me a lovely Paris chest for Mothers Day, where I store all my handmade cards and for some time I've wanted to decorate the inside of the lid, as soon as I saw these stamps I knew they'd be perfect for what I wanted.


Fancy Alphabet






I covered the lid with the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden, to adhere it to the lid, I used Claudine Hellmuth matte medium so the paper doesn't lift or warp.
I stamped the letters onto some small tags, adding buttons to the top, to carry on the theme of Paris I stamped the clock face from the Paris stamp set. I then had fun embellishing with flowers, bling, ribbon, pins and the gorgeous MF crown.


Supplies
Stamps- Fancy Alphabet, Paris.
Papers- Pink Paislee.
Pretties- IBS Flowers, ribbon, lace, ribbon buckle, pins, Prima swirl, MF crown.

Tea Party


This set is just adorable, great for any occasion but perfect for invites, if you are planning a tea party or a vintage inspired wedding where a wedding afternoon tea is becoming very popular. I paper pieced the teapot, stamping onto some pretty paper and cutting out.

Supplies
Stamps- Tea Party, Fancy Labels 4.
Papers- The Girls Paperie.
Pretties- IBS Flowers.

Yummy Food Labels






What a great idea for a stamp set, you can make your own labels for all those lovely, vintage jars that are about at the moment. I went with a box of cookies to give as a gift, I made a very simple box, covering with pretty pattern paper, cutting out the centre and covering with acetate. I stamped the label and cookie onto some white card, then diecut out using the Spellbinder oval die. I made the fancy border edge with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Supplies
Stamps- Yummy Food Labels.
Paper- The Girls Paperie.
Other- MS border punch, Spellbinder Oval die, acetate.

Well, that's just three of the new stamp sets, the release day is on Friday and Joanna will be offering free shipping on Friday and Saturday.
