Inspired By Stamping - Day one of June peeks!

Hello crafty friends,

Today is the first day to the June Inspired By Stamping countdown festivities.  We are kicking off the countdown with sneaks at some of the sets being released on Friday.  

So let's get to some projects shall we!
This card uses 6 new stamps from this wonderful set called Cross Stitch which was inspired and co-designed by our lovely design team member Deb Hickman. I love the homespun feel to it! I stamped the small cross stitched hearts twice at the top portion of my card leaving the center open for the  cross stitched sentiment With Love.  The cross stitched bluebird you see in the center was fussy cut and applied with foam adhesive to give dimension. 
The focal cross stitched heart coordinates nicely with the Spellbinders standard heart dies.  I created a hand-cut sentiment banner for the Happy Birthday greeting (which are two separate stamps in this set) 

Below shows you the inside of my card stamped with a greeting from a set called Birthday Greetings.  It's a set that will be incredibly useful for stamping the inside of all those birthday cards you create!

Up next is a coordinating card and home decor frame using Elegant Flowers. This set focuses on gorgeous floral images.
I took an already beautiful frame and dressed it up a bit. I created a background paper starting with kraft cardstock stamping the rose image in red ink. I added s strip of burlap to the center. A die-cut of cream cardstock was used to serve as a mat for the rose images and sentiment (which you will see more from this set tomorrow from other Inspired By Stamping design team members)
The rose was stamped and fussy cut and mounted with foam tape for dimension. 

This card as well as the frame uses a technique I like to use a lot called repeat stamping. This allows you to create your own designer paper. I simply took the rose and rotated my stamp as I stamped my cardstock. As with the frame, a single rose was stamped and fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesive for added dimension. The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from Cross Stitch.

My final sneak I have for you today is a card using some background patterns called Background Basics

I created a banner across the top using the images from Background Basics.  The possibilities are endless with this set. 
The focal sentiment is from a previously released set called Small Fancy Label 4. The flowers can also be found in the IBS store. 

I hope you have enjoyed todays projects, and please pop over to see what the other talented Inspired By Stamping Design Team gals have created for your viewing pleasure.

These are all so gorgeous Tammy I don't know where to start!!
I love the first card, with the bright knoitted style patterns, so jolly and cheerful!
I love the toile de jouey style card, with the monochrome colour, and beautiful floral theme, and the little button is the perfect embellishment.
and I love your last but not least banner card too! Love the papers, and the happy bunting, sweet little roses and fab seam binding, a real treasure!
