New Release Inspiration Blog Hop Day 3

 Hello! It's our third day blog hopping and today we are featuring that last new stamp sets from our last release, Seasonal Labels and Primitive Blessings. First up is Seasonal Labels, the new Free With Three stamp set, that you get free with the purchase of three other stamp sets. I used mine to make a tag to go on a Christmas present. I love to make gift tags.

Next is a fun new set, from Gina K, called Primitive Blessings. You'll love the cute, folksy images in this set. I made a CAS scene using the cows and tree.

You can find a lot more inspiration from the rest of the team, so be sure to hop along…





 My tag is pretty simple, but I did snap a few step by step photos. First I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock using Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Labels Eighteen. Then I sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves while still in the die template. 

 Sponged Memento Olive Grove.

 Stamped the label image using Memento Love Letter.

 Stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then stamped a little flourish using Memento Bamboo Leaves.

 I layered a piece of Cheery Red card stock, cut using Spellbinders Fancy Labels, then adhered to a piece of Fresh Asparagus cut using Spellbinders Tags and Flags.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
