Inspired by Stamping Blog Hop....Day 1.

Hello there, today is the first day of sneak peeks from Inspired by Stamping March releases, Joanna will be releasing 8 new stamp sets and 21 new flowers this Saturday, also she'll will be giving away some BLOG CANDY each day of the blog hop and Free Shipping on Saturday only, just use this free shipping code MarchFree. I've got four of the new stamps set to play with so over the next three days I will show you what I've created with them..
The first set I'm using is the Easter stamp set, a set of 10 stamps featuring Easter sentiments and images.

I covered the front of the card with patterned papers, I machine stitched around the edges and clustered the stamped images and flowers on the fence.I love this fence die, my friend Maria let me borrow, thank you Maria. I think I'll be treating myself to one.

Stamps- Easter 6 x 4, Fancy Labels 3.
Flowers- Mix Colours of Small Flowers.
Papers- Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen.
Dies- Marianne Creatables.

The second set is called Cherish, this set is so pretty with the silhouette tree and some beautiful sentiments. I've seen a lot of embroidery hoop art about lately so decided to make my own version.

I stamped the tree onto white fabric using Versafine ink, pigment ink stamps better onto fabric as dye based inks tend to bleed. I cut out some bunting using some scraps of fabric and machine stitched them across the top onto the white fabric.

Stamps- Cherish
Other- fabric, buttons, embroidery hoop.

The next set is using the Small Fancy Labels 4.

I layered the papers and stitched around the edge then made a large double bow using Kraft seam binding.

Stamps- Small Fancy Labels 4
Flowers- Navy Blue Flowers
Dies- Spellbinders Labels 1 and 4
Other- SU Kraft seam binding, SU Scallop Punch

The last set is called Easter Blessings and I've made a clean and simple card, I've made a few of these cards to send through the post as they aren't bulky so cheaper to mail.

I stamped the cross and sentiment directly onto the card using Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
So that's the first look at these gorgeous stamp sets and flowers, why not hop over now to see what the other DT have created. Don't forget to check out Joanna's blog to see how you could win one of the new stamp sets and flowers.
