Sponsor Spotlight: Inspired By Stamping

Well, I had hoped that my package from Inspired By Stamping would be here by now, but I just KNOW that shipping is crazy with the holiday!  So, instead of seeing a creation that I have made with these stamps, take a peek at a creation by my cohort, Ellen, that she made using gorgeous stamps from this amazing sponsor!

Here's Ellen's card~

Ellen described this card by saying, "That gorgeous red flower is one that is available (in white) from Inspired by Stamping. I sprayed it with Crimson Tattered Angels and added the three leaves, also available at IBS. Under the IBS sentiment on the SB is a Memory Box flourish and two more SB.  I wove ribbon through the lace, yep IBS lace lol, and used the same ribbon to fashion a bow under the flower. Martha Stewart came to the rescue on the paper. I used her Doily Edger Punch on three of the papers, two at the bottom and the red at the top."

Thanks, Ellen, for helping me showcase this AMAZING sponsor--stay tuned to win a prize from them in either March or September!  A very Merry Christmas to all of you and happy stamp{ink}!!!

Sponsor Spotlight: A Day For Daisies

Like I told you yesterday, I'm highlighting products from our 2013 FABULOUS sponsors here at Inkspirational-!  Tonight I've got a card made with an image from the wonderful A Day For Daisies!  They are actually our first sponsor and will be sponsoring us in January as well as in July! 

I've used part of an image called Freehand Bird 1 on my card.  It's a fabulous buy because you get two beautiful bird images in one purchase!  It's also so versatile--I've used it for a holiday card but it could easily be used on a birthday or just because card!

Here's the card I've made with this image~
More details on my personal blog HERE.
Don't forget that we're going to be doing a follower give away soon, so please follow us!  Also, feel free to LIKE our Facebook Page as this will also play a part in our give away!  More information will be forthcoming soon!!! Merry stamping, friends!

WooHoo! December is here and that means we will be announcing our new Design Team soon! Please bear with us for a couple of days though. The lovely Mynnette has gotten sick and her computer decided to get sick too! Well, her computer is being fixed and we hope that she is feeling better soon. As soon as she is feeling better and her computer is fixed, we will be emailing everyone who applied.

Thank you all so much for the wonderful entries. We had many beautiful designers to choose from, so we are trying to make those final agonizing decisions now.  Please bear with us a day or two and we promise to get the word out!

Happy Tuesday!
