ANNOUNCING......

I have a wonderful announcement to make......


Yes, you read that correctly! I have joined the 2013 Inspired by Stamping Design Team! A while ago a friend referred me to this company and I fell in love with some of the stamps, but I never got around to ordering anything. In December, another friend told me that IBS was looking for new designers...I applied...and here I am!

Here is a lookie-lou at the new 2013 Team!

Gloria Stengel - THAT'S ME!
I am super excited to play with the stamps and other goodies from IBS! I will be sharing projects from new stamp releases throughout the year and will be participating in the weekly stamp challenges!

Here is a peeky at the card I designed for the DT Call.


We were given a photo for inspiration and asked to make a new card based on the photo.


This is what I came up with. I was inspired by the flowers and by the band tied around the corks. I also tried to pick out the tan and pink from the photo.The photo had a very romantic vibe to me, so I made a Valentine's Day card. (Please note: I did not use IBS stamps, since I don't yet have any.)


There is a vintage trinket peeking out from my triple bow!

Please make sure to visit the rest of the NEW team and tell them CONGRATULATIONS!
