Inspired by Stamping June Sneak Peeks.....

Hello my lovely blog friends, I'm back today to show you some sneak peeks from this month's releases from Inspired by Stamping.
I'm super excited as Joanna gave me the great honour of helping her design one of this month's stamp sets. It all started back in January when I emailed J and asked if she'd thought of designing a cross stitch stamp set. She thought it was a great idea and next thing I knew she'd asked if I would like to help with it, to say I was thrilled was an understatement, thank you Joanna for giving me that opportunity.
So here is my first project using the new Cross Stitch  stamp set.

I've loved making this little shadow box, it started out as a cheap plastic frame which I got from Primark at a bargain price of £1.50 and covered it using Crate paper and Tim Holtz tissue tape. I found the best adhesive to use is Ranger Glue n' Seal, it stuck down on the plastic no problems.
I stamped the cross stitch label and sentiment, diecutting out with Spellbinders Labels 3, I also cut a few out using chipboard, glued them together and painted it white, it gives the label some dimension in the box. Lastly I added all the other cute embellishments.

Stamps- IBS Cross Stitch
Papers- Crate Paper, Prima.
Pretties- Crate Paper Restoration chipboard button card, TH tissue tape, Melissa Frances vintage embellishment, East of India tape measure and ribbons, cotton reels, pins and buttons.
Tools- Spellbinders Label 3.

Basic Backgrounds & Birthday Greetings.

These background stamps are fab, each stamp is 4.5cm square, they are so easy to line up and create any size background you want or like I've done, create a border, very versatile.
The Birthday Greetings are great for the sentiment inside your card but I like using them on the front too.

Stamps- Basic Backgrounds, Birthday Greetings, Fancy Labels 18.
Papers- Prima
Tools- Marianne Creatable cup cake die, Spellbinder Label 18.

Elegant Flowers & Little Phrases II

These vintage style flowers are so pretty, I left this card very simple, I think the flower says it all.

Stamps- Elegant Flowers, Little Phrases II
Paper- Pink Paislee London Market
Pretties- SU ribbon, lace, tulle and button.

That is just a few of this month's new releases, check out what the other girls have done with these gorgeous stamp sets.

It's release day on Friday and there'll be free shipping on Friday and Saturday using the code "freeshipping" at checkout. Also if you pop over to Joanna's blog she is giving away some blog candy this week to one lucky person.

Happy Stamping
