I Brake For…Cows!!!

Hello stampers.  It’s Wednesday and another day where I am doing double duty with this post.  It’s my turn on the I Brake For Stamps blog and it is also the start of a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog.

Today’s post features a new and super cute set from IBFS …

The stamp and sentiment are called Cow Set and can be found here.  It is also part of a larger set called  Animals Complete Set which includes five cute animal stamps and a bunch of coordinating sentiments.  That full set can be found here.

A number of different elements went into this card.  The base was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.  Next, a semi circle cross stitched edge die was used for the sky, a cloud die for the cloud, the fence is a silhouette cut file and the grass was created with an EK Success punch.

The cow was colored with copics. The head was stamped again, colored, cut and popped up over the original image.

Now…over at the Sisterhood of Crafter Blog today is the start of a new challenge called …Anything Goes!!  It’s up to you to decide what to make!  You can find all the details here.

I hope you stop by the IBFS store – there are many new stamps available, as well as thousands more.  Use code SAVE10NANCY and save 10% off your order.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

clean and simple monday – tall tales

Today’s clean and simple challenge at SCS is to use humor on your card.  As a stamper I am not really “funny”.  Some people have a knack for taking any image and creating something witty or hilarious.  Not me.  I did, however, have these stamps from Viva Las Vegas stamps – they have lots of funny images – and made this card:

Now we all know someone, either a relative or close friend, who can tell a tall tale.   And everytime they tell it, it gets bigger and bigger!  That’s deja moo – the feeling that you’ve heard this bull before.

Sometimes it’s your parents telling you how rough things were in their day:

“When I was a kid we walked three miles to school in two feet of snow.  Uphill.  Both ways.”

Or maybe it’s a friend who likes to “embellish” their life:

“I was up for a Nobel Peace prize for my work in saving the sand flea, but they gave it to Nelson Mandela instead.  I have no hard feelings though.  He seems like a nice enough fellow”.

Or it could be war stories or tales of the large fish that got away.   Either way, we smile and nod and chuckle as the tale gets bigger and bigger.

Thanks for stopping by today.  And on a totally unrelated topic  – I was offered $5000 to publish this card in a well known craft magazine but turned it down because I wanted to share it with you here for free! 

Have a great day!
