*IBS October Release: Celebrating 2 Years & Create A Cupcake

Good morning.....Good morning!!
Today and for the next few days, we are celebrating Inspired by Stamping 2nd Birthday!!
I am proud to be on this team and to be among some amazingly talented ladies. 
Joanna is an amazing leader/owner/artist/woman and friend.
I can't say enough about her and I am over the moon excited to be on this journey with her and to celebrate her continually success with Inspired by Stamping. 

So today, we have some beautiful stamps being released this week and with this release we have some fun challenges for you to play along with!!  I promise you, you will want to play along cause the prizes are crazy AMAZING!!!  

Let's get started with today's release.
We are showcasing two new stamp sets today.
The first set is Create A Cupcake
LOVE...LOVE this set!!!
Our first stamp set is Create A Cupcake, a 4×4 stamp set filled with 19 adorable images. You get to choose what cupcake wrapper and topper you would like plus adorable confetti to decorate! A fun filled set that will be perfect for your stamp collection!
I have so many ideas for this stamp and I can't wait to create more beautiful cards.
Do you do see the beautiful patterned paper?
That is also beautiful paper created by Joanna, that are also part of this release.
Is it not just delicious looking!?!?!  
I had so much fun creating this card and I love all the buttons and glitter!!!
I had to take a low light picture, just so that you can see the glitter on the card. 
Now, this card was created off of one of the sketches created by Joanna.

Okay....onto the next stamp.
This is set is SUPER fantastic!!
With Inspired by Stamping celebrating 2 years, we thought it would be fun create a stamp set with all our IBS favorite images from previous sets! This 4×4 contains a few of our favorites that we just know you will love!
I just love the little banners that this set comes with!
I stamped doilies from an older IBS stamp.
Also included are beautiful Boy Birthday Bash Digital Paper
Again...Beautiful right!!!?!
