Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello Everyone.  Christmas is next week.  How many of you are still trying to "craft up"  some Christmas presents?  I am.  Every year I tell myself I will be ready and not doing things at the last minute and guess what?  Every year I am doing stuff at the last second, not even the last minute.

I have posted these Chipboard houses before, but I loved them so much I made several versions to give to my sweet friends.  I used the Label Maker verses stamp set.  I used the individual words for the roof and ground.  I painted the chipboard with distress stains by Tim Holtz and the flowers were also cut from a Tim Holtz die.  The bird was a punch that I dyed as well with the distress stains.  I love these cute pieces of inspiration.

I also made more wreath ornaments using the Vintage Christmas set, inked, added greenery around the edge (Martha Stewart punch) and red sequins for the berries and various red ribbons on top.  These are fantastic teacher gifts (school, Sunday school, AWANA etc...).  Each wreath ornament is double sided, so you have image on front and verse on the back.  I love them.  I hoped I have inspired you to make some blessings for those around you this holiday season.  Make sure to check out the other fabulous DT creations and the Inspired Stamps blog.  Remember if you have a crafter on your list, getting them a gift certificate to the Inspired Stamps store so they can purchase their favorite verses and images would be a great gift.
