We are thinking of SUMMER as June is about to begin, but here at Inspired Stamps we are already thinking about our CHRISTMAS STAMP sets!! We LOVE to make some of YOUR ideas into stamps, and try to do a stamp set every few months, that contains input from YOU!
CONTEST: Leave us ONE comment per household here OR on our Facebook page between now and Sunday midnight letting us know:
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN A CHRISTMAS STAMP?
Is there a Bible verse, some INSIDE the card sentiment, a character, an object or scene you'd like to see?
BEFORE YOU POST!! Please click HERE to see all the Christmas stamps we ALREADY HAVE (we don't want to make duplicates!)
WINNERS will have their suggestion made into a stamp and when it's produced, we will send you that stamp set FREE!! We will announce our winners next week on the blog and Facebook page!
Ok, now let's get back to summer and the beautiful DT creations!
Kary starts us off with His Little Ones: Summer Girl:
SHARE our contest with your blogging or facebook friends and have them mention you in their comment! If THEY are chosen to win, we'll send YOU that new Christmas Stamp set TOO, as a thank you for getting the word out about us!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Antoinette and the Thursday DT!!

Here is the tutorial followed by the cards:
To make the background paper:
1. RANDOMLY stamp your largest image, trying to make a 'triangle' each time you have your stamp down. So here is the first set of 3 I stamped in a triangle manner using a stamp from the Psalm 91 Protection stamp set:
I used Copic Markers shown below for the His Little Ones Characters (HLO: Soldier with helmet and HLO: Soldier Boy): E 33 & 37 for the uniforms and one pair of boots, E 30, 34, 55, and YR17(not shown) for the hair; E000, 01, and 02 for the skin; C8 & C2 for the 'black' boots (not shown)
MORE PERFECT SENTIMENTS stamp set.
May God bless you!

First you stamp your bride (because she will be in front of his hand...whatever you want to appear IN FRONT is stamped first):
Place the trimmed sticky note EXACTLY upon the original stamped paper (right on top of her on the white paper).
Have a great day!
