I Brake For….Gloriosa Daisy!

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to Wednesday with I Brake For Stamps!  Spring is about a month away – are you all ready for it to show up?  We’ve had a mild February here in Florida, contrasting with a colder than normal January and I am ready for spring to make its mark.

My planters in the front yard took a hit this winter and I’ll have to do a bit of work next month in replacing a number of plants that did not survive.  Looking forward to it because it looks terrible right now!

So, with that in mind I have a pretty floral card for you…

The image is called Gloriosa Daisy – it can be found here.

These daisies have a bold dark red/orange center and yellow petals, so I kept with that color scheme – using copics to color the image.  I really think this would look pretty in shades of blue or pink as well. I stamped and colored the main bloom, cut it out and popped it up on top of the stamped image.

The sentiment is from a set called Florals Sheet, which can be found here.

Hop on over to the IBFS store – you will find thousands of stamps there.  There are many flower/floral stamps to choose from – I know you will find something you like!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I Brake For…Florals Sheet

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday with I Brake For Stamps.  My last two cards were all about fall, so this week I decided to go in a different direction and use this great floral set…

The stamps are part of a set called Florals Sheet that can be found here.  The great thing about this set is that not only does it include these open images in three sizes, but also has the same flower in solid images as well.   Additionally it includes several sentiments and a bouquet stamp.  It’s a great deal for the cost.

I went with a clean and simple design for the card.  Stamping all three sizes of the flower along the side of the card.   Breaking from my normal use of copic markers, I decided to use prisma pencils here – choosing a color scheme of blues and purples.

For the blue flowers I used :  Cloud Blue, Blue Violet Lake, Cerulean Blue, and Indanthrone Blue

For the purple flowers I used:  Greyed Lavender, Imperial Violet and Dioxazine Purple Hue

The centers were shaded with Black and Cool Grey.

The birthday sentiment is one of the stamps included in this set.

Hop on over to the IBFS store – there are thousands of stamps to choose from and  you are sure to find something to your liking!

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…….. 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.

The Greenhouse Society

Hello friends.  I’m back in my craft room – and it feels great!!  I want to share a card I made with an image from the Greenhouse Society Club at Technique Tuesday.  Do you know about this club?  When you join, they will send you a limited edition stamp set each month.  They are all floral/plant designs with a few sentiments.  They offer a few sets to people who are not members of the club (at a higher price) but there is a limited stock available.  This card was created using the first issued set – it is no longer available.  The sentiment is from Papertrey. Thanks for stopping by today!
