Inspired By stamping October Sneak Peeks

** Second post of the day...for my Halloween Inspirational Card click here Thank you so much **

Hi! Happy you could join me for the second day of sneak peeks for the Inspired By Stamping October Release.

This card shares a preview of Holiday Sentiments a great set to use for your holiday greetings. The sleigh was created using recycled materials and was embossed, painted and sanded and embellished with snowflake glitter for a touch of whimsical flair.  The Poinsettia is a new addition to the Inspired By Stamping store as well as the ribbon. IBS also has a great selection of crochet trim as you see above.

Next up is a card that uses some new goodies as well as previously released. 
Christmas Postcard is designed to coordinate with Vintage Postcards. So fun to mix and match to make this fun Christmas card. The greeting is from the new festive frames.  What do you think of that fun glittery blue ribbon?  Inspired By Stamping is now carrying Blue Glitter Ribbon Tape! How fun is that? In addition to the Red Poinsettia showcased above White will be carried in the store as well. 

For my final project, I created a Christmas Home Decor block to share. 
Featuring one of the new stamps from December 25th Labels shown above
I painted and sanded the edges. Next I cut and sized some coordinating patterned papers adhering before embellishing the block. 

I wrapped some red and cream  plaid ribbon around the block. I created a big fluffy bow embellishing with another satin ribbon from the IBS store. In the picture above you can see that a tag was stamped and created using a sentiment from Festive Frames
A Vintage image was added to the other side.
  
A snowflake was die-cut from glittered foam  and was
added for some dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed the sneaks for today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the design teams showcasing what's to come tomorrow. I am personally adding this to Crafty Sentiment Designs: Bows or Ribbons

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Love that sparkly sleigh! It's perfect on the burlap :) And those poinsettias (both colours) are just fab - I can't keep them alive, but I love them :)
And as for that present? Oh em gee, I love that great big ol' bow & the super sweet vintage image, and I'm wondering if the short stack has tried to open it yet? lol!
