New Release Inspiration Blog Hop- Day 2

Today we are featuring three more fabulous stamp sets that were released a couple of weeks ago. So many of you already have these great stamp sets and are making gorgeous projects with them! And today, we want to provide you with even more ideas to make these sets go even further!

My first card today was from last month's release party presentation video and it showcases the new stamp set by Tami Mayberry called Lighthearted Wishes and the HUGE bold background stamp from Becky Oehlers new set, American Made.

The huge background stamp from American Made has become a new favorite of mine. Aside from making beautiful rays of light, one of my blog readers suggested that I use just the bottom part and create a farm scene because it resembles farmland ready for harvesting. Perfect for fall cards!!

And the assortment of lamps, bulbs and accents along with these adorable quips in the Lighthearted Wishes stamp set makes fun cards for friends, family, kids and more. I love how the rays of light work so well with that sweet little lamp image!

Another new set we are showcasing today is the new one by Beth Silaika called Stippled Nature. This new distressed style of stamp lends itself to stamping in rich autumn colors and works all throughout fall and beyond! I am in love with Silhouette style images but the stippled texture in these images give projects a kind of extra dimension that I love!


I adore the font Beth chose for the greetings in this set. It's a new one for Gina K. Designs and it can be both masculine and feminine. That makes this set more versatile. Stamp leaves in warm colors for masculine cards and flowers is brights and pastels for feminine backgrounds.

Now it's time to see what the team has created! As you hop through the blogs, make sure you leave a comment on each along the way. We have some HUGE grab bags full of stamps, embellishments and more waiting to give away and we will randomly select winners through the comments left on each of the blogs. The more you comment, the better your chances of taking home a huge bag of stamping goodness!
