Inkspirational Challenge - Thank You with Something New


Our new challenge at Inkspirational is to make a thank you card using something new.

My new thing is the girl stamp, which is from a set by Personal Impressions/ Lindsay Mason. I bought these just before Christmas.  As she is hugging ('feeling') a heart, I thought it's be fun to team it with the Clearly Besotted sentiment 'Heartfelt Thanks'.

On this card I used two of my favourite 'techniques'. First I cropped the stamped image - she is full length, but I cut her off at the thighs. The other is paper-piecing, which I did on the heart.

At Inkspirational this challenge we are joined by an amazing Guest Designer, Maaike , so I hope you'll come over and see what she, and the DT have made, and join in the challenge.

I'd like to enter:

  10. What a fun new stamp! I really like that sentiment stamp. I feel like it is difficult to find something unique for a 'thank you' sentiment. Love the blue color and I am glad you mentioned the paper piercing because it is a bit hard to see in the photo.
    Happy New Year!
