Inspired by Stamping Designer Feature

Happy Saturday everyone. 

We have a new feature over at Inspired by Stamping.

Every Saturday there will be a special newsletter showcasing our Designers. To make sure you don't miss out on anything, you need to head on over to IBS and sign up to receive the newsletter.

Today I am concentrating on using particular images from a set that are pretty much specifically for a certain theme but could be used other ways. Make sense?

Take for example our new release Autumn Blessings set -

This set is just beautiful! It is so perfect for those Thanksgiving cards! In Australia, though, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving but that doesn't mean I love this set any less! With all these beautiful choices, there are many things I can think of to use this set for.

Take Christmas for example. I knew that wreath would be perfect!

Here is a card that I have come up with -

I don't usually photograph my cards turned towards the left but I needed a bit more light for this one. I added stickles to my berries to give them a little more texture.

Can you see how versatile this set is? 

The sentiment is from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set

I then decided a second card using the wreath would be nice. This time I wanted to use the stamp in a completely different way.

I embossed the wreath and sentiment (also from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set) with silver powder. On the grey cardstock, I felt this created a very elegant card and something completely different to the first one.

There you go! A couple of ways to get a completely different look with one of the stamps and also a different theme for a specific set. 

Thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Beautiful cards Kylie. What a great set of stamps. Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs, Flo xx

  2. very cool idea and both work perfectly-that first one would be good for our challenge at Time Out challenges. The second card I adore-the grey background so unusual but it looks fabulous x

  3. Two fabulous CAS cards Kylie. Great use of the Autumn-themed set of stamps ... always good when you can use them in different ways to stretch your stamps. Loll xx

  4. Your Christmas wreath is lovely. So creative.

  5. Both your cards are gorgeous - love them! xx

  6. First one caught my eye on the email, but now that I see the silver wreath, I love it too!
    Both are lovely, the stamp set is so versatile.

  7. LOVE that set & your cards are beautiful!

  8. WOW! Two really gorgeous cards, Kylie! I love how you created Christmas cards with this set...such a great way to stretch your supplies! Love your CAS design on both cards, too!
