Inspiration Hop, Day 2: Love is All You Need, All Star, and Free set

Welcome back, it's Day 2 of our January Release Inspiration Hops! Today we are sharing ideas for Beth Silaika's All Star  and Emily Loggans' Love is All You Need stamp sets. Be sure to comment on the blogs as you hop through, Gina will select a winner randomly from the comments on Friday for a $50 gift certificate to the store for some crafty shopping. You are not required to comment on every blog to enter, but the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.  Let's get to it!

Here is sample I made with Beth's set All Star  and my Open Book set. This fun, colorful star layout reminds me not just of picture books, but of old my sticker collection!  (Lots of Lisa Frank and Mrs. Grossman, remember those??) This card just makes me feel like a kid again, I always had my nose in a book.  Honestly I don't read quite as often now because if I'm going to sit down I need to be crafting, but I'll always love books for the stories that have been read to me, the joy they've brought me and the places they've taken me.
I stamped the different stars in Gina K. Sea Glass, Red Velvet and the line art ones in Jet Black Amalgam, then colored them with alcohol markers.  I had a LARGE bookmark collection as a kid, but dog-eared my pages like this, too (unless they were library books). I love the fonts Beth chose and how these different greetings you can customize fill up the card (or the page in this case) Star stamps are so versatile for holidays, gift wrap, when you need just a bit of something on your card even if it isn't star-themed. I cut it all out and popped it up for dimension. Base is Pure Luxury Warm Cocoa, to represent a desk.
    


I don't have Emily's set or the incentive yet, but they are on the way!  I look forward to using both of them very much and will post samples when I do. Her writing is so beautiful and handwritten sentiments really add a personal touch to your projects.  Here are both sets to see what each include.

Lovely Words-free with purchase of $75 or more!
