Inspired Stamps Sneak Peek Week

It is New Release time over at Inspired Stamps, all this week the members of the Design Team will be giving you a "Sneak Peek" of the New Inspired Stamps that will be released for sale this Friday Aug 17 at Noon.  

Today Chere, Patty and I are giving you a Sneak Peek of the New Inspired Stamps "Feel Better".  I had lots of fun playing with this set, and I created 3 very different cards with it.

Last week, when we were to say what we felt our style was, I said "my style" changes depending on my mood.  Well last week was Clean and Simple, but this week is Whimsical, and Shabby.

For my first card, I decided that the Band-Aid look would be perfect for a "Feel Better" stamp set.  Just think back when we were kids and had a scrapped knee usually all it took to make us feel better was a hug from Mom and a Band-Aid to show off.  So I pulled out my stamps, Cuttlebug, and card stock and this is what I came up.  
To create the band-aid holes I used my Swiss dots embossing folder and \
used the back side of the embossed cardstock.

My next card I decided to go a little shabby with, I was in a "De-Stressing" mood.  I also wanted to use the cute little band-aid stamp in the set to cover a paper tear. 

 These two cards remind me that while a band-aid and hug will help heal most physical wounds, God's love will heal all wounds!!! 

My next card looks like it has been through the wringer, It is tattered, distressed and completely a mess, but it still looks beautiful in my eyes.  This card for me represents that even though you may feel like the whole world is stomping on you, there is always that little bright spot of life showing through.  And that no matter what you always have someone "God" in your corner.

For this card I created my Flower image using emboss resist method on glossy cardstock. I first inked up my cardstock in yellows and oranges, then I stamped my flower image with Versa Mark ink and coated with embossing powder. Once my image was embossed I inked over the cardstock again with black creating the orange flowers with a black background, as the embossed image resisted the ink. After I had my black as dark as I wanted it, I covered the whole piece in Versa Mark and heat embossed it several times, to give it a Glassy look.

Now Jump on over to Chere and Patty's blogs to see what they have created using Inspired Stamps Feel Better Stamp Set.

Until Next Week 
Happy Scrappin
