Welcome to the Inspired by Stamping Blog Hop , the DT are choosing two of their favourite IBS stamp sets to work with today.

It was a hard decision, choosing just two sets, as I love them all but after much deliberation I decided to showcase Oh Baby and Mason Jars.
I went with the Oh Baby as my good friend, Maria, became a Grandma for this first time so wanted to make a card for the proud parents.
I stamped the pram and cut around it, adding some buttons for the wheels and a bit of lace to the hood.
A few of the sentiments are separate, so you can create your sentiment to suit what you need. I stamped the 'Welcome' in blue and 'bundle of joy' in red to match the rest of the card.
I also made a matching tag, as I'm knitting him a little All in One Teddy Romper, this time I used the bib from the set. I adore the sentiment 'cute as button'.
Stamps- Oh Baby.
Papers- Prima, Authentique.
Pretties- bakers twine, buttons, IBS Crochet Trim.
Tools- Spellbinders Nestabilities, SU Pennant punch.
The next set I choose was the Mason Jar set, I went for a festive feel, filling the jar with baubles and glitter.
I used the Holiday Ornaments to create the dangling baubles, the lid I stamped onto the IBS Silver Glitter Tape, adding some lace, baker twine, a jingle bell and then stamped 'Xmas' from the Vintage Postcard Add On 1, punching out with a mini tag. I added some glitter in the bottom of the jar.
Stamps- Mason Jar, Holiday Ornaments, Vintage Postcards Add On 1.
Papers- Stampin' Up.
Pretties- seam binding, lace, bakers twine, jingle bell, glitter.
Now, hop on over to our next designer, Irit of Irit Shalom Designs, to see her wonderful creations using her two favourite sets.
