I Brake For …..Tulips!

Hello fellow stampers and thank you for joining me this Wednesday as I show another new stamp from I Brake For Stamps.

The image is called Tulip and can be found here as a single stamp, or part of a larger set called Lovely Florals, found here.  The sentiment called Be The Change can be found here.

I stamped the tulip once then masked it and stamped it again two more times.  It’s a beautifully drawn image and was easy to color up -I used copics in the RV and Y ranges for the blossoms and YG for the leaves.

I wanted the image to take center stage so I used primarily white cardstock with just some darker orange for the mat.,  An embossed background adds just enough texture.

So, it’s been quite a week here in Florida.  I am happy to report that since we live in the far northwest part of the state we did not see any of Hurricane Irma here.  It’s probably the only part of the state that did not.  Having been through two significant hurricanes since moving here I feel for those who have suffered losses from this storm.  It will take a long time for many people to recover and I am hoping for the best outcome for everyone.

Thank you so much for stopping by today .  I hope you will hop on over to the IBFS store to check out these new stamps in addition to the thousands of other stamps available there.

I Brake For…..Bass Fish

Hello stampers – it’s Wednesday and time  to show you another  great stamp from I Brake For Stamps.  This one is called Bass Fish,  Here is my card.

 

Let me tell you that I love the size of this image.  Big enough to fill a card and great for coloring.  When I first saw this image I thought it would make a great masculine card – and perfect for Father’s Day for those men who love to fish.  Then I thought….I know several women who love to fish as well – just as much as the guys.  This would make a great card for those women!  It made me realize that I have to get past the old traditional “if it’s a fish its masculine, if it’s a flower its feminine” thinking.  In fact, I used to work with a guy who had the most amazing flower garden in his backyard.  I could definitely send him a floral card and not feel funny about it.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics.  I sponged some Memento Cantaloupe ink around the edges.  On the base card the text “GO FISH” is computer generated.

The Bass Fish stamp can be found here. I hope you hop on over to the IBFS store and take a look at the thousands of stamps available.  Use the code SAVE10NANCY and get 10% off your order.

I Brake For…….. Kerr Jar

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope all is going well with you.  Are you ready for spring?  it is right around the corner and I can’t wait to see the pops of color as the flowers start to bloom.  We planted our annuals in the front last week and it was so nice to see something other than brown in the flower beds.

I have a wonderful spring like card to show you today.  A burst of color in some flowering blackberry /raspberry stems all delightfully placed in a Kerr mason jar:

The image is call Kerr Jar and can be found here in the IBFS store.

It’s a wonderful image to color.  I used a mix of copics and prisma pencils for the coloring, sticking with purples and pinks.  The blackberries have a touch of green on them to show they are not quite ripe yet.  I used a pierced oval die for the main image and an EK Success punch for the scallop portion on the bottom.  The paper is from Basic Grey and I had to add a little bling with green rhinestones.

it’s one of those days…….

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go right?  Hopefully it does not happen often but there are times when it’s just not your day.  And this stamp and sentiment from I Brake For Stamps says it all..

 

The stamps are from the Carmen Medlin Curiosities line at IBFS.  This set of the monster and the sentiment is called Some Days Set and can be found here.  It is also available in the Curiosities Set 2 which includes 5 other cute monsters and sentiments.  That set can be found here.

I stamped the image with memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with copics.  The grass is an EK Success punch.  The polaroid frame is a silhouette file.

The patterned paper has stitch lines in the design and I wanted to carry that onto the card so I cut the paper and some white cardstock with a curved lines stitch die – here is a close up.

I have to say that I just love these little monster stamps and especially like that they are paired with funny sentiments.  Be sure to stop by the IBFS store to check them out.  You can get 10% off your order with the code SAVE10NANCY.

I Brake For….Curiosities!

Hello friends!  I have something a little outside my comfort zone today.  In going through my inventory of stamps I’ve found that I don’t really have any “cute” or “funny” stamps.  Until today, that is!  Just look at the cute face on the monster stamp used on this card.

The stamp and sentiment are part of the Carmen Medlin line at I Brake For Stamps and I have to tell you when I first saw them I thought they were just so cute.  This particular stamp and sentiment combination can be found here called Monster Chill Set,  but it is also available as a set with four other cute monsters and sentiments found here, called Curiosities Set 1.

As soon as I saw this little guy I knew he should be purple.  Don’t know why, it just seemed like it fit.  But I wanted him to be a bit more colorful so I added orange to his palette.  I used the following copic markers:  V01, V12, V15, V17, YR01, YR14 and YR15.  I have him sitting in a field of grass contemplating deep subjects.  The grass was created using an EK punch and some patterned paper. Green and purple cardstock and purple grosgrain ribbon finish it off.

I hope you will check out the Curiosities line and all the other stamps at IBFS.  Remember – you can save 10% on your order when you use code SAVE10NANCY.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
