IBS designer sneak peeks—June Release Summer Flowers set

Today our talented Inspired by Stamping designers are creating with the new Summer Flowers set. I used four of the flowers (there are seven, plus a leaf stamp) on this door card. I stamped the flowers on colored paper and fussy cut them.

I stamped the decorative square from IBS's All Year Wishes II set directly on each "door" of the card and placed a flower on top. I adhered the flowers with foam pads to give a bit of lift.

I took the four words from the IBS Vintage Sayings set—Love, Wish, Dream, Hopeand stamped them on white cardstock, placed to appear behind each opened door (I love the vintage look typeface of this set and it's only $4!).

I finished up the inside of the card with IBS's Big Notes II "Wishing you a Beautiful Day" sentiment (I use the heck out of this set!).
