IBSIC #49 and a little sneak peek at Inspired by Stamping's new Beautiful Iris set

You're in for a treat! Not only is there another beautiful IBSIC photo for you to play along with today (and don't forget each week's winner receives a $15 gift card to the IBS store), but we're in day two of a four day designer sneak peek fest for Inspired by Stamping's new March release. There are 6 new sets coming out. Be sure and scroll down to the end of this post for special offer and contest info during the release and follow the links to see what the other IBS designers are up too.

This little card on on a canvas frame has been designed using the new Beautiful Iris set.

This set reminds me of old botanical prints so I just had to give it a vintage, shabby look.

In addition to the Iris image there are 5 sentiments. I love the positive tone of this one—Hope Happens!

I really raided the vintage paper stash, none of the paper used here is new. I found an old French postage stamp in just the right color. The ribbons at the bottom are also vintage.

Here's our photo for this week:

There will be special offers and goodies up for grabs at the Inspired by Stamping store during the new release.
