Inspired by Stamping - Have a Sweet Day

Hi everyone! How are you today? It is the end of September! Holy guacamole.... Where has the year gone?

Today I am going to share with you a card I have made using one of the New Release sets from Inspired by Stamping. Even though I have used a set called Autumn Blessings, I am going to show you how to really change up your stamping to give your card a whole new look. 

I was going for a Spring / Summer picnic sort of look with this card. What do you think?

I have done a lot of stamping for this card. I used the 'checkerboard' looking stamp from this set to create my 'tablecloth'. I masked off the top and bottom of the card first and once I was finished my repetative stamping, I put score lines to give the stamping more definition.

I stamped my apples and fussy cut them out. The middle apple has an embossed flower (from the same set). 

The sentiment is from the Petite Banners set. They come with co-ordinating dies. I LOVE co-ordinating dies. 

One of the girls from IBS said this would make a great card for a teacher! I tend to agree :)

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

Timeout - Stamping with a twist of Apples

Thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Fab stamping, I thought it was DSP! Great idea to add the score lines, will have to remember that one. I love the fresh Spring feel of this card, with all the Autumn cards around at the moment this makes a refreshing change. Thanks for playing at TIME OUT Challenges x

  2. Great way to stretch your stamps, Kylie! I love the red and white checked tablecloth and how you added score lines on the panel! I also love these charming apples and fab color combo! Cute card, and perfect for a teacher!

  3. Yep, very picnicy. Love the way you made that tablecloth. the green mounts make the red sing out. :)

  4. LOVE your spring version of this Autumn stamp set!! The bright red and green together as very spring-y and fun. Love the checkerboard "tablecloth"! :) Loll xx

  5. Love the fresh colour combo and checked table cloth! Such a fun and bright card - the trio of apples are perfect for our challenge at Time Out. Thanks for joining us, Kylie :)
