CAS Inspired Stamps Card

thinking card 2


Today I am sharing my Inspired Stamps  “Designer’s Choice” card with you with a bit of trepidation!  “Clean and Simple” is not usually my style but I felt like stretching myself and doing something I usually don’t!  The actual design started completely differently in my mind but after I punched out the scallop, I left it alone to do the 2 smaller circles.  When I looked back at it, I thought it would be fun to just leave it in its original spot but pop-dot it for interest.

I kinda like it, do you?  For all stamping, inside and out, I used the wonderful Card Ministry Basic stamp set.


Keep reading for the inside-I couldn’t leave it alone and had to fancy it up since the outside was so plain!





 inside thinking

One fabulous feature I love about Inspired Stamps is   the clear photopolymer material that allows me to manipulate long phrases into curves.  And these stamps are all created and manufactured in the USA!

The flower, stem, leaves and pot are all separate stamps which allow for ultimate creativity.  In addition to coloring my flower with Copics, I added a bit of dimension and gloss to the petals with a gel-type liquid that I can’t remember the name of!



Be sure you check out the rest of the team’s projects-they are just gorgeous!  The links are on the side.


  1. Great job. I love using crystal color lacquer (that is what my gel coloring is called). It gives such a gloss with transparent color. Card basics looks like a very versatile set.

  2. Belinda, this card is gorgeous!! Love the sweet paper and how you curved the sentiment on the inside. Great idea!!

  3. Lovely, and love that ribbon.

  4. Belinda,
    The front of your card is SO CLEVER! Great job!

  5. Love your card. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love your card, and how you punched out the scallop but left it there just popped up a little. Thanks for Sharing
