ISBIC 99 Blog Challenge - Design Team


Hi All, Welcome to today's blog post for the Inspired By Stamping IBSIC Blog Challenge. Hope you find inspiration from my card.  

I love the silver, rich blue and crisp white colour combination for Christmas as an alternative from the red and green usual combo.

All silver has been heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Silver embossing powder. To add extra pizzazz I have used silver foil behind each postage punch out square and the oval punch out too.

The fabulous Inspired By Stamping stampset used for today is the Festive Greetings set.

See below for the instructions from Inspired By stamping in entering into the blog challenge.

Create a card or project on your blog using one or more of the options above!*
Please note: If you see a color from the photo inspiration that we didn’t use, please go ahead and use it in place of one of the chosen colors. Only want to use 2 colors from above, that’s o.k. too! Don’t forget to flip the sketch if you’d like! :)
