Inspired Stamps April Release-Thursday DT post

Hello Everyone it is time for new releases at Inspired Stamps.  Each of the DT members has made projects using new sets that will be available in the Inspired Stamps Online store tomorrow at noon.  The new release set that I used for both of my projects is called Labelmaker verses. This set has verses as you see on my home decor house.  I cut apart Phil 4:13 to fit on my card.  I used individual word stamps for words on the roof and grass area.  

 I used a chipboard house to make my home decor project.  I inked with distress stains and then stamped words and verse and cut out each piece.  I inked the verse with distress inks.  I punched a grass border, bird and used Sizzix distress floral die to make the flowers.  I really like the way this turned out.  The word is relief and the background is what takes the ink, so when I stamped on white paper, the word stays white.  So you can easily change the look, with your ink and paper choices.  Awesome.

For the card, I was inspired by the Labelmaker verse to make the background out of paint chips.  I cut off the paint number and name and had a 1/4 inch strip to use on the card.  Notice how I reversed the order of the strip for repeated strips ( I started with darkest color to lightest, then lightest to darkest).  I cut apart the label verse to fit on the strips and added a clear acetate flower with a button as a pop of color. I didn't want to take away from the colorful background, so the clear flower (with polka dots) worked the best.  
Please make sure to check out the Inspired Stamps blog for the other ideas and new releases and then make sure to go to the Inspired Stamps Online store tomorrow at noon to buy these new sets.  Inspired Stamps are made in the USA.
