Inspired Stamps Alphabet Cards

Hello and welcome here.  Today the Inspired Stamps DT are showcasing alphabets!

Card Sizes:  4.25" x 5.5"
I used Solid Alphabet Lowercase for the word 'birthday' and Labelmaker Alphabet for the 'Happy'.  I stamped the birthday 3 times using different ink, leaving a bit of an extra space between the last 2 to make room for the word 'Happy'.  I stamped 'Happy' and then outlined it using a black felt pen.

Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS-Solid Alphabet Lowercase & Labelmaker Alphabet, Bazzill CS-Mono Ivy, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Gypsy, Dutch Blue, Topiary & Black, Rhinestones, Black Felt Pen.

For this card I used Solid Alphabet Lowercase for 'happy' and for 'birthday' I cheated and used the one from Perfect Sentiments.  I had planned to use this card for another week but thought it showcased 'happy' in a fun way using the alphabet stamps.

Recipe:  Solid Alphabet Lowercase, Perfect Sentiments & Flowers Value Pack, Bazzill CS-Mono Ivy, Mono Arctic & yellow, CTMH White Daisy, Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork Die, CTMH Ink-Gypsy, Dutch Blue, Topiary, Sunkiss Yellow, Autumn Terracotta, Cranberry, Sky & Black, Foam Squares, Copics-B000, B00.

Inspired Stamps Spring Card

Hello and welcome here!  The Inspired Stamps DT are sharing Spring cards with you today!

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
Spring is the time for new flowers!  I used Flowers Value Pack for my card today.  To colour my flower and the background behind it I inked up my acrylic block with pink ink and then spritz it with water.  I then quickly stamped my white cardstock with the block.   I let it dry and then stamped my flower, and fussy cut it out.  I did the stem the same way, but using green ink.  The background I inked both colours onto the block and let the water mix the blue and green slightly.


Inside:
Inspired Stamps SS-Flower Value Pack, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Sweet Leaf, Sky, Topiary, Blush & Black, Spellbinders-Fancy Lattice, Labels 10 & Labels 17, Ice Stickles-Cherry Ice, Foam Squares.

I added Stickles to the flower petal edges and the center.
