Inspired by Stamping April Release - Day 2

It is time for the Inspired by Stamping April Release! Every 1st-5th of the month IBS shares "teasers" of the new release. Then, the 6th-9th of each month the design team will share project "peeks" of the release. The FULL release is shared on the 10th!

I get to share my project using Creative Tags, set of 24 stamps. 
I used my current favorite color: purple! 


 I love this delicate purple and white combination!


I stamped the script tag from the Creative Tags set onto purple cardstock with white ink. I also stamped the "for you" sentiment from the set. I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the tag and sentiment, then I fussy cut it out with scissors.


To crate the mini banners under the ribbon, I stamped the banner tag from the Creative Tags set onto white cardstock with purple ink, then fussy cut them and trimmed them down to fit under the ribbon.


For the inside of the card I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from Creative Tags with purple ink onto the white cardstock. To create the flower, I used the Spring Blossoms set. I stamped the flower and the stem  once onto scrap paper to tone down the ink, then stamped onto my card. The result is a soft, watercolor look.

I hope you enjoyed peeking at the new Creative Tags set (and the new Spring Blossoms set)!

Go and see what the other DT members are sharing today!
