Inspired by Stamping March Releases.......Beautiful Iris.



It's the start of the Inspired by Stamping March releases and I'm kicking off with the Beautiful Iris set. I love this set, it's perfect for my preferred style of vintage/shabby chic.


I started off by stitching around the pattern paper and adhering to the card, I then took a piece of white card and with Pan Pastels, added various shades of green and lilac, stamping the Iris and Friend in grey ink.

I made a frame using glitter card and dies, layering onto patterned paper and kraft card, lastly die-cutting some tiny butterflies. I think this is my favourite card I've created using this months release.

This Inspired by Stamping beautiful 4x4 stamp set has the gorgeous Iris image and five sentiments, available to purchase from the 10th March.

Check out, what the other DT have created using some of this month's releases.


 Joanna will be giving away a $25 gift card, today and each day until the 10th March, just leave a comment on Joanna's blog post, to be eligible. One comment per person, each winner will be randomly selected and the winner will be announced daily the following day.

All the stamp sets will be available to purchase from the 10th March with free shipping on orders of $25 or more, for 24 hours only. All stamp sets will be offered as a bundle for a 10% discount.

Thanks for taking the time to look, come back tomorrow and see more creations using this month's releases.

Happy Crafting.
