Inspired Stamps: Do Not Fear

Can I just say I'm having a blast being part of the Inspired Stamps team? These stamps are top notch. I don't think I've ever worked with clear stamps that have been this crisp. And I'm not just saying that! These are pretty awesome and I highly recommend checking them out. And if you don't have it in your budget to get your own set, don't worry, I have a solution for you. :)

But first I want to share with you a card I made using one of the scripture stamps:

Supplies: Paper: Lily Bee Design, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Button: Chatterbox, Stamp Ink: Versafine, Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up!, Pen: Zig Memory Systems, Stamp: Inspired Stamps, Tool: Silhouette SD, Other: raffia
Silhouette Shape: 25-card_kit_ornate_flower

For the stamped scripture I embossed it using the Onyx Black Versafine Ink and Crystal Clear Embossing Powder from Stampin' Up! I found that simply stamping with the blank ink on the kraft didn't stand out like I wanted. But simply adding some clear embossing helped to make it pop a little bit more. And I learned that you can, indeed, emboss with Versafine. So yay!

Here are a couple of close-ups:
