Birthday Blog Candy Day 4 - Innovative Stamp Creations

It’s day 4 in the countdown to my birthday! Anyone want to guess how old I'll be?

Today's Birthday sponsor is Betsy Griffin at Innovative Stamp Creations. ICS not only carries beautiful deeply etched rubber stamps, they also carry product by Tim Holtz , Zutter and Teresa Collins to name a few! Oh yeah, if your a TJNL subscriber Betsy also has the Shimmer Sheetz I used in the Aged Metal Tutorial I wrote for February's issue.

Here's a card using one of my favorite sheets from ISC - Beautiful Flowers


I used the Aged Metal Technique for the background using Yellow Shimmer Sheetz - but substituted a Fiskars Embossing plate for the Cuttllebug Folder. I also did a morphed version of Smackin' Acetate - as I didn't want a ton of color, but more of a sublte look, so I stamped my image in stazon, then colored with markers, spritzed a piece of acetate with water and pressed it onto my image and removed.








Today's birthday giveaway is the new All About Me Stamp Sheet from Innovative Stamp Creations!

ETA - if you're looking to do some shopping at Innovative Stamp Creations - use code lscag for 10% off ALL items- good through 3/16/08

I'd love a chance at the giveaway. Is this the collage sheets that were on site yesterday? I like floral & animals the best, and prefer colored. As far as people, it depends on the type. I like ATC or larger size. I've never used them before and really should try them. Thank you

It is a fun week of celebration. Thanks again for the chance to win some wonderful blog candy. After looking at the ISC site I really like the New Flair of Summer rubber sheet. They have some awesome women sheets too.

Oh yes, yes, please enter me. I love the stamp set that you're giving away. Your card is incredible. It gives the impression of looking through a stained glass window. Gorgeous. Let's see...a fave? Uhm...I think it might be the sheet you're giving away.

I was gonna say you were 39-I dont know why other than when I was 39, it was a pretty good year. Many moons ago.....

Thank you for sharing all the fun with us this week and introducing me to fun websites. One of the standouts for me at ISC is the Watercolor Flowers elements.

Lisa Bohler said...

Lisa! This is such a fun way to celebrate! I think I can guess how old you will be but that's cause we're so close in age...so I'm not saying a word! I like the Flowers & Elements set from ISC but if I could pick a favorite from the new sheets, it would be either the All about me set or Flair of Summer sheets! Keep the party going, my friend!

Linda said...

I love their rubber stamp sheets---the prices are great and there is a wonderful selection.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Please consider nme for the day 4 giveaway. I like the ISC flair of summer sheet next to the two sheets I already own from ISC. Their stamps are sharp and well defined.
