Die-Versions - Inspired By Stamping Blog Hop!!

* This is my second post of the day. For the Craftin' Desert Divas Stamp Release, click HERE *


Hi everyone!! Welcome to the Inspired by Stamping and Die-Versions Blog Hop. Twenty two talented designers have united to celebrate the new season and shake off the malaise of a snowy winter. Yay!! Inspired by Stamping, which designs and manufactures the highest quality of photopolymer stamps that bring superior stamping to all crafters, has teamed up with Die-Versions, makers of low profile metal dies which works with virtually every machine out there and cuts through most materials, to create this special eye candy of Spring themed projects.

One lucky "hopper" will get a total prize package of $100 in gift certificates, a $50 gift certificate from Inspired by Stamping AND Die-Versions, so you can stock up on some awesome products both of these companies have to offer.

For your chance to win the grand prize, visit all of the participating blogs, leaving a comment at each, then leave a comment telling us what you like the most about Spring at the Inspired by Stamping blog. All comments entered between now and April 28th at 10pm (Pacific time) will be eligible for the grand prize.


All of the papers, flowers and lace for my cards are from Inspired By Stamping. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All.


I used the new Die-Versions Good Times Sweet Frames for the centerpiece. It was cut once in the patterned paper and once in black cardstock and then offset for a subtle shadow effect. It was popped up with foam tape for dimension. Timeless Memories is from Inspired By Stamping's Arrows Stamp Set. The button in the center of the bow is a Die-Versions Button Wee Petite Die.


The papers, flowers and lace for the second card are also from Inspired By Stamping. The new Die-Versions Circles Background Die was used for the background. The Celebrate stamp on the bottom is from Inspired By Stamping's Chalkboard Birthday stamp set. The button in the center of the bow is a Die-Versions Button Wee Petite Die.


The sentiment was created from Inspired By Stamping's Chalkboard Birthday stamp set. It was heat embossed with white embossing powder and then shaded with chalk for a chalkboard look.


Here's a sneak of a project I have on the Die-Versions blog featuring the new Die-Versions Circles Background Die, the new Die-Versions Butterfly Punch Border Die and a Die-Versions Butterfly Kisses die.

Your next stop on the hop is Lori Kobular. If you ever get lost in the hop, you can always go back to the beginning, Die-Versions blog, for the complete order list.

My sweetest friend, these are beautiful beyond words! Those papers in the first card are quite literally my DREAM papers.. I never knew they existed! Elegant music, butterflies, flowers, and a stunning Eiffel Tower? I will definitely be frolicking over to IBS to peruse this weekend. :o) You have combined them so gorgeous with Die-Versions goodies. The frame is lovely and I just adore the sentiment you incorporated and the lovely lace. Stunning card!

As for the second card, it is so dreamy and elegant... just a perfect combo for that sweet sentiment. I love the background dies and papers, and the gorgeous border of flowers and sparkles couldn't be more lovely. The sweet polka dot butterflies fluttered straight into my sappy heart! :o) Another inspiring creation from you, my dearest friend! And as for the third... I'll flutter on over to the blog to tell you how much I love it. :o) Amazing work for this hop, Lisa!
