Inspiration everywhere…

Stampers are fans of the US Post Office for obvious reasons…..they deliver our precious creations to our intended recipients.  As Leigh Houston shows us, the US Post Office is also a place of creative inspiration!  Leigh posted on her Instagram this sweet card that she created. I was struck not only by its beauty, but also by how much it looked like the USPS Love Flourishes postage stamp, which I believe was her source of inspiration.  In her Instagram post, Leigh states that she used Simon Says Stamp Hope Blooms stamps and Hope Blooms dies.  She also used My Favorite Things More Rustic Wildflower stamps,  and More Rustic Wildflower  and Fab Foliage dies. For the postage stamp die, she used Avery Elle’s Postage Stamp Elle-ments.  I don’t know about you, but this card makes me want to head straight to the post office and get some of these stamps.  It also makes me what to head straight to Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things and order the adorable flower stamps and dies!  Remember,  there is inspiration all around you….even in things you  use regularly, like postage stamps!

Hugs and besos!

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away…so it’s time to display and share some heart and love cards.  I found this card on Instagram, created for Sizzix by Kathy Cano-Murillo, of Crafty ChicaSizzix, known for dies and die cutting machines, has spread its wings to offer other products, such as stamps, paper, jewelry findings, and much more.  Kathy used the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 3PK w/Stamps – Besos Hearts and Sizzix Paper – 6″ x 12″ Cardstock Pad, My Happy Life, to create this stunning card.  I love the background paper for this card, it appears as though it was actually stamped!  You can go to the Sizzix website, to get a look at all the products they offer to bring your creativity to life.  Be sure and check out Kathy’s website, Crafty Chica™, and see all the things she offers with regards to a Latina lifestyle!  Besos!
