New Release Week at Inspired by Stamping

It is New Release time over at Inspired by Stamping!!

The whole team is so excited to bring you the new sets that will be available to you. 

Today we are concentrating on the Australian Nature I set. A set very close to my heart as an Aussie girl :)

Firstly I started off by inking up my Cooktown Orchid. These orchids are spectacular! 

I have tried to capture the pretty pink colours by using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I couldn't go past adding a couple of butterflies! I was also a little bit naughty – I have added a sentiment from one of the new releases coming up later in the week – I just couldn't help myself!

Once I had coloured my butterflies, I wanted to create a panel to matt my orchids onto. I also wanted to match the colours in my panel the best I could. 

I cut three panels and then used my markers to colour the edges with blue, green and pink so I could see which one would look the best with my card. I went for the blue :)

This way I could perfectly match my backing panel with my top panel.

I would like to enter my 1st card into the following challenges -

One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes with a Flower
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge - must use pink

Now onto my next card – for this one I have used the Ulysses Swallowtail butterfly stamp. 

I took a small liberty with the colour of the butterfly. This particular butterfly is usually a brilliant blue in the center and then solid black around the outside. I decided that I would like my butterfly to be completely blue :)

For this card I have used two of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 set (circle and label). Once I coloured my butterfly and fussy cut it out, I mounted it onto a piece of corrugated cardboard (very Australiana – just like the corrugated tin roofs you will see on a lot of homes) and then onto the second die cut panel. 

I secured some jute string onto my embossed panel and then placed everything right on top. The sentiment is from the Petite Banners set and also has a co-ordinating die in this set. 

There you go, my cards to celebrate the new release here at Inspired by Stamping. You had better stay tuned because you have to see what the girls are coming up with over the next few days. Amazing cards and new stamps for you to feast your eyes on!
