Last Minute Gift with Inspired Stamps

Wow! This is my last post before Christmas.  Are you feeling the pressure??  Never fear, the Inspired Stamps Design Team is sharing last minute gifts with  you today.   My project can hopefully be made without trying to wade through crowds of shoppers.  The only thing you might  have to purchase is the mini clothespins (Wal-mart office supply dept)  but if you bought some a few weeks back when I showed you the ribbon calendar, you just may have a couple laying around!

For the scripture card, I used a beloved scripture from Inspired Stampers Favorites #1 set.  I love vintage wooden spools and that is the base of this project.  The one I used is about 2" high.  just remove the old thread and adhere scrapbook paper around the spool.  If desired, cut a circle the size of the top and adhere it as well.  Decorate the spool as desired and then use a strong liquid adhesive to attach ONE side of the mini clothespin to the top.  If you glue both sides, you won't be able to open the thing!  ask me how I know-LOL!

For your recipient, you could give them a set of scripture cards to change out.  They can also be used to display a photo.  As I sign off for the holidays, let me say Have a Blessed Christmas!

Inspired Stamps Ornaments

Today I am sharing ornaments I made using wonderful Inspired StampsCould your tree use a few more ornaments?  These were super easy and quick to create starting with inexpensive, plain paper maiche ornaments. The 1st one I made uses the beautiful Vintage Christmas Stamp Set.

 The next ornament uses one of the great 1.5" Circle Christmas stamps. 
My final ornament is my favorite!  I utilized most of the 1.5" Circle Christmas stamps on this block ornament. The ornament itself is covered with musical paper and then embossed with gold on all sides.

Inspired Stamps Christmas Decor

The Design Team is using Christmas Stamps from Inspired Stamps this week. I challenged myself to make a home decor item from supplies on my desk.  The result was a Christmas decoration that can be hung on a wall, the tree, a bedpost or even a door handle.

For the scripture, I used the Blessed Little Christmas stamp set.
I stamped the scripture on a decorative journaling card that's been in my stash for probably 3 years!.  The base of my project is a 7Gypsies vintage book cover that I bought ages ago and never made a book out of-
LOL. The star clip, burlap and evergreen wire are all this year's purchases and seemed to just "fit".  Hope you enjoy!  Why not clean off your desk and make something pretty for Christmas?
