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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

 

I Brake For….Wine And Grapes!

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday and I Brake For Stamps.  My card today features the beautifully drawn Wine And Grapes stamp..

The stamp can be found here on the IBFS store. It’s also part of a larger set called MS58 Full Sheet – found here.

I really enjoyed coloring this one up.  I’ve been taking an online class using colored pencils and wanted to try out what I learned on this image.  One thing I’ve learned from the class is patience.  I am not a patient crafter – I think it goes back to the days when I first started stamping and it seems like every class or get together was focused on how many cards we could make in the time we had together.  That created a rush mentality for me that has carried on throughout the years.  However this particular class I am currently taking focuses on different parts of a stamp and taking your time to color each section.

It’s been a real eye opener for me and I find that taking the time to just get one card done, and done well, is much more satisfying than getting three cards done in the same time that may not turn out as nice.  That being said, I still like those “stamp and go” cards.  Especially around the holidays when I need to get a few clean and simple cards out.

I used a bunch of prisma pencils for this image:

Grapes:  Dioxazine Purple Hue,  Dark Purple, Imperial Violet, Lilac and a touch of Lime Peel on a few of the grapes

Leaf and Stems – Prussian Green,  Kelp Green, Moss Green

The Wine bottle and Glass use the same colors.  For the Wine Bottle, I combined some green and purple pencils to try and mimic the look of a green wine bottle filled with red wine.  For the label on the bottle of wine I scribbled a name and framed it out with a bronze pencil.

I went back and forth as to how to use the image on a card and decided on framing it within a stitched rectangle die with a purple mat on green cardstock.

This image would be great for a birthday card for wine lovers, a thank you card, or house warming gift card.   If you are heading out to a party this holiday season this image would look great paired with a bottle of wine!

petunias times two

Good morning crafty friends!  Are you enjoying your spring?  Everything is bursting with color here in north Florida.  The azaleas are blooming all around with shades of pink, purple and white.  We’ve been busy over the past month – planting a vegetable garden (tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and onions). We’ve also added a new weeping plum tree and two hydrangea bushes.  I am looking forward to watching everything grow.

Here are two springtime cards using a lovely Petunia stamp from Creative Visions (found here) – this red rubber image comes in two different sizes.

On this first card I embossed the image in white and sprayed colorwash inks to get a bright watercolor effect.  The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart.  The stitching on the white panel was done on my silhouette machine.

On the second card I take the same image and color it with prisma pencils and sponged with memento ink for the background.  The background paper is basic grey and the ribbon is from May Arts.

Happy Easter!

Good morning and I hope your Easter Sunday is glorious!  Here is an Easter card for you.

The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and colored with prisma pencils.  And embossing folder was used to add some nice texture for the frame, basic grey paper and may arts ribbon finish it off.

This image is from Creative Vision stamps – called Easter Egg in grass –  and can be found here.  You get two sizes of this stamp – this is the smaller of the two.

I’m just about finished with my Christmas cards – here are my latest two.  I used the same stamp set for both with just a few changes.

In this first card the main image – colored with prisma pencils -is  mounted on a tag created in Silhouette.  Snowflakes on the blue cardstock are embossed in white.  The coloring was quick and easy.

The hills are made a bit more festive by adding some Martha Stewart glitter – here is a close up

The main image and sentiment are from Papertrey, and the snowflakes are from Hero Arts.

The second card uses the same image but is mounted on a white base.  I drew the hills in on the base card.

Glitter was also used here – both on the main panel as well as on the hills drawn on the base card.
