Hello sweet friends and welcome! I'm so, so super excited that today has finally arrived. It's been weeks since Joanna from Inspired by Stamping made the official announcement of her new design team and I was beyond excited to see my name on the list!!!
Joanna is a blog friend of mine who I 'met' through this wonderful world of cyber space that we all share and love and we became fast friends! Joanna currently lives in Australia (I dream to vacation there some day!), so she and I have only had the pleasure of Skyp-ing back and forth to date. One of these days I hope I can surprise her with a real life visit in Australia -- it's my hubby's dream destination!!
Both Joanna and all the Inspired by Stamping teamies have been doing lots of 'behind the scenes' work to bring you some fabulous inspiration for the official December launch party! Over the next three days, I'll be showcasing projects I've designed using one of the stamp sets launching this month -- I couldn't be more excited about all of this fun and exciting news. Without further ado, let me introduce you to ...
The Sky's The Limit
This whimsical and fun set of 15 images is absolutely adorable! It's filled with sweet hot air balloons and wonderful sentiments for a variety of occasions! I stamped the hot air balloon image on a sheet of Melissa Frances graph paper from the Attic Treasures collection using aqua ink and then glittered it - yum! The 'thank you' sentiment fit perfectly on one of my favorite Spellbinders label dies, and then I added a couple of rhinestones for that bling factor!
In my true shabby style, the addition of a couple of pretty blossoms, a pink glittered chipboard heart, some crepe paper ruffled up, a snipett of vintage trim and a paper doilie complete the look! The vintage seam binding is Paradise Aqua Mist and Vintage Winter White from my Etsy Shop.
Please be sure to visit the other teamies' blogs for lots more wonderful inspiration today ...
... and then hop on back tomorrow to peek at the next card I'll have to share with you!
Until then, happy stamping my friends!
