Sneak Peek Week at Inspired Stamps with Random Stamping

This Friday at noon the Inspired Stamps online Store will be releasing New Stamps.  So this week Antoinette and the rest of the Design Team are giving you a sneak peek at the upcoming New Releases on the Inspired Stamps blog. So make sure you check in everyday so you can get a sneak peek at all the new stamps. 

Today I am showcasing the new Label Maker Words and Journal Shapes.  When I first saw these stamp sets my creative brain immediately screamed Random Stamping (RS).  The wonderful thing about stamping is that if you can't find a paper to fit your mood, you can instantly create your own using a couple of stamps, your favorite colors and a sheet of cardstock.  Here are the 2 background papers I created using random stamping.

For this background paper I individually stamped each word from the Label Maker Words Stamp Set on the Card stock, making sure to intentionally stagger each row to give it a brick like appearance. If you notice all the words are the same color with an exception of three that I wanted to stand out.

Here is the Simple Valentine/Love Card I created using this RS Background Paper. 

On this next piece of RS cardstock, I stamped some of the shapes from Jounal Shapes in different colors on the page.  This paper looks very busy now but once it is on the card the other elements will help tone it down.

Here is the simple Birthday card I created using this RS background cardstock.  I also used Deuteronomy 31:8, 1" Circle Sentiments, and Label Maker Alphabet to complete this card.

 For this next background paper is made using a process I call wordblocking, I took my acrylic block and placed all my stamps I wanted to use on the block and the inked them all up at once and stamped on my cardstock, alternating the direction of the block to change up the design some.

Here is the block showing how I placed words from both the Label Maker Words  and Journal Shapes stamp sets on my acrylic block.

Here is the Hi! card I created using this background paper.  If you notice the blue squares are also random stamped, the Sky pieces were stamped using the wordblock, used on the background.  the Pacifica pieces were random stamped using the swirl stamp from Journal Shapes.  I used More Perfect Sentiments to finish of this card.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of the Inspired Stamps New Releases.  Remember this is going on all week so make sure you keep checking out the Inspired Stamps Blog, and the rest of the Design Teams blogs linked in the left hand bar of my blog.  If you see any stamps you like they will be on sale here starting at noon on Friday January 13.
