Inspired Stamps DT choice

 Hello everyone, we are back for an Inspired Stamps DT choice post.  I have two projects to show you today, both using a similar technique.  I used Phil 4:8 from Guard Your Heart, Inspired Stamps, as my main image stamped in tuxedo black and then I stamped the heart with Versa mark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and inked with antique linen, tattered rose and fired brick (Distress inks).  I wove a piece of shear ribbon through the frame and added some punched flowers.  I love this verse and I love the way this card turned out.

 This little "goody" bag was made for my children's Sunday school teachers and AWANA table leaders for Easter.  It contained some chocolates as a "thank you" for their service with our children.  I used the His Cross, Inspired Stamps set and did the same technique as above.  Stamped the verse in black and over stamped the cross in Versa Mark and clear embossed and then inked with antique linen, dusty concord and vintage photo.  I embossed the back panel (both front and back panels were cut with Spellbinder dies) and embossed with embossing folder and inked the same as the front.  I used a small brown paper bag cut down to size and attached the front and back panels.  I punched a slot in top of "bag" and tied with ribbon.  Very easy to make and a way I could show my appreciation to those who serve my children.  I took the pictures outdoors on Easter morning and the sun washed out the photos a bit, but I hope you enjoy the project anyway.
 Please check out the other DT blogs for their creations by clicking their names in the side bar under Inspired Stamps DT. Remember you can find these stamp sets as well as many others at the Inspired Stamps online store. Inspired Stamps are made of a clear polymer here in the USA.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
