Inspired by Stamping sneak peeks -- day one!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to the first day of peeks for the January Launch at Inspired by Stamping!  My great friend, Joanna, has created a bunch of new and amazing stamps and I can't wait to share a couple of cards that I created using some of the goodies from her shop!

I got to choose the {new} Sweet Sentiments stamp set for this month's designs and I couldn't love the beautiful sentiments contained in this set anymore!  They are so gorgeous, inspiring and heartfelt -- perfect for creating all your Valentine's Day cards and gifts!!

I first stamped an image from the Beautiful Ovals set onto white cardstock with turquoise ink.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments stamp set inside the oval in pixie pink!  I used a couple of Spellbinders dies to die cut the oval shapes and then finished the image off by adding teeny, tiny pearls all around the centers of the oval flourish images -- LOVE!!  The pretty patterned papers are from Girl's Paperie and the yummy turquoise bloomers are from Webster's Pages.

I just adore the way this bright and cheery card turned out ... great bits and pops of color to make someone special smile :)

Please be sure to check out all the amazing inspiration from the rest of the teamies:

I have another card to share today for January's release ... and I'll be back again tomorrow with a few more cards to share too!  Please stop back by and visit with me again tomorrow ... I so LOVE to hear your sweet comments!!
