Inspired by Stamping Release!

Hi! So excited to be with you today as it's the start of the Inspired By Stamping release! We've got 4 lovely new sets for you so be sure to stop by each day to see the new stamps. Today's set is free with a purchase of $50 or more. It's a great new sentiment set called You Are.


I love all the different sentiment combos you can create and I chose one of my favorites for my card today.


I wanted to use this sentiment as it's what I feel about all my kids :) I used a paint brush and clear water and painted on the sun and rays and then used the Ken Oliver Color Bursts in Red and Yellow to create the loose watercolor effect. I blended out where needed and let it air dry.


I added some machine stitching to accent it but wanted the sentiment and watercolor to be the focus. I hope you'll stop by the Inspired By Stamping blog to see what other great creations the DT came up with. Thanks for stopping by!
