Happy Occasions

Welcome to this month's Inspired By Stamping release! You are in for another great release with several new stamp sets that are just plain fun. Today I am showcasing Happy Occasions and Happy Occasions Sentiments. Isn't that big "happy" just lovely? I started by stamping the big sunflower from French Country onto my card base and layered the sentiment from Happy Occasions on top. I don't usually do anything to the inside of my cards but this set just begged me to, so I finished it off with a partial image of the sunflower and one of the sentiments from Happy Occasions Sentiments.

Did you know all the stamp sets have FREE Silhouette cut files for you on the IBS store? Find them with the coordinating stamp set.
