I Brake For….Elegant Pumpkin!

Hello stampers – it’s time for another Wednesday with I Brake  For Stamps – and today I have a card that is all about October!  Take a look…

This beautiful pumpkin filled with fall foliage is called Elegant Pumpkin and can be found here.

There are many pumpkin stamps out there but the reason I LOVE this one is that it is not a jack-o-lantern, or cute, but has a nice elegance to it.  Look at the luscious blooms that fill this pumpkin!   Everything screams fall and this is perfect for a fall birthday or even a wedding card.  It’s a really nice size too –  about 3.5 x 3.75 – enough to make a statement on a card.

I enjoyed coloring this up – I used copic markers and went to town with the colors of autumn.  Lots of orange, yellow and green with touches of red and brown.    I found some old Basic Grey paper in shades of orange and love the bottom design – a perfect elegant pattern for this stamp.

Even though I used patterned paper and a fancy edge tag, I can see this image on a clean and simple card as well,  The overall design is so nice it can stand on its own.

I hope you will hop on over to the IBFS store and take a look at this and all the fall/winter stamps that are available.  I’m sure you will find something to your liking! Use code SAVE10NANCY and get 10% off your order!

I Brake For…..Acorn Wreath!

Hello stampers and Happy Fall!  I hope you are all welcoming this beautiful season with an abundance of color!  I have a very nice fall card to show you today – using a lovely stamp from I Brake For Stamps.

The image is called Acorn Wreath and can be found here.  I just love wreath stamps and this one can be used in a variety of ways – fall birthday, welcome, thank you or even fall weddings.

I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with copics.  I kept it a bit clean and simple, letting a strip of patterned paper and a leaf embossing folder do the work.  And the colors really pop against the crisp white cardstock.

Take a look over at the IBFS store  – they have a wonderful selection of wreath stamps  (I think I counted about 15!), along with some great fall and winter holiday images.

leaves

It’s “hot and humid” season here in Florida!  Time to stay in the air conditioning or head to the beach.  So, here in my craft room I want to cool down by coloring some fall leaves.  Here is my latest card..

 

The leaves are from Creative Visions called Two Leaves shown here.  They are beautifully drawn and nicely detailed.  I colored them with copic markers in shades of red/purple to coordinate with the basic grey paper.  The brad is from Nunn Designs.

clean and simple monday

A quick and easy card to start the week off.  It is now officially fall, but the weather down here is still like summer!  All the craft stores have their halloween/thanksgiving/christmas product on the shelves and many of my crafty friends are splitting their time between the three holidays.

The card was made using the wheat branch from Papertrey and sentiment from Flourishes.  The white cardstock in Neenah, the red from SU and the patterned piece from Papertrey.  Memento Inks were used to stamp the images.

bright poppies

I’ve always loved the bright colors of poppies.  When we lived in California each spring some of the hillsides would be covered with pretty orange poppy blooms and we would  drive up the coast to take in natures splendor.  Those orange poppies set against a bright green field of grass was so pretty, but many people know poppies only in bright red.  I made this card for a recent sketch challenge at SCS.

The poppy image is from Technique Tuesday and was colored with copics.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey’s Indian Summer line – my favorite line of from them.  I only have a few sheets left and will be sad when it is gone!  The sentiment is from Papertrey and both it and the poppy were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  The red cardstock is from Bazzill and the white from Neenah.
