I Brake for Beautiful Days

Hello everyone,
So today I have a super SIMPLE & Easy card to make using I Brake For Stamps "How Beautiful a Day" stamp. How beautiful this stamp is, I LOVE it!!!!

 I love when you need a quick card and when they come together in less than 10 minutes. This one I cut the white card stock at 4 1/2" x 9" then scored at 4 1/2" to create my card. Next I took a piece of scrap dp I was using on another project and layered it on the pink card stock that was also a scrap. LOVE that I use them up! The beautiful frame I had already cut, and all I had to do was stamp my sentiment in memento black ink, and cut out an oval shape, airbrush, and added some ribbon and flowers using hot glue!
I hope you enjoy my post today, and thank you for stopping by! To see all the BEAUTIFUL I Brake For Stamps, please visit HERE!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

I Brake for Pelicans!


My bird day card features the pelican from the Always Time for Friendship Half Sheet (Stampinback), available at I Brake for Stamps.

The pelican from the Always Time for Friendship Half Sheet was stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with a dark marker. When I was done, some Clear Gelly Glaze pen was added to the pelican's eyes, beak, and feet, which added dimension and shine to those elements and didn't hurt him a bit!

I Brake for Stamps is where you'll find great selections of Stampinback stamps plus lots of other stamps from other stamp companies. Click on my badge below to be whisked over to I Brake for Stamps to check out all of the goodies!

I Brake for a Howling Wolf!

If you've reached a certain age, birthdays are a good reason to...


Wolf (I Brake for Stamps) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. White gel pen was used to add stars to the night sky. The image panel was die-cut with a small Polaroid style die, which was also used to die-cut black cardstock.

White cardstock was die-cut to spell out the word "Howl", which is what I'm gonna do on my next birthday 'cause I'm getting so old.

Patterned paper from a very old 6x6 pad was edged with Distress inks (Ranger), layered, and adhered to a kraft card. The image panel was adhered and I called the card done!

I Brake For Cats

{jane bosi}  Happy Monday, Brakers!!  I've been out of the stamping game for a few weeks due to crazy kids and their schedules.  With yesterday being Mother's Day, I decided it was high time for me to claim some Studio time.  That's just what I did and, just in time to make this kitty card for my friend's birthday!

I really love the expressions on each of the kitty faces on this great image from the Cats and Buildings Sheet.  I've never actually had a cat for a pet, but I have lots of friends who do and they all seem to be strong in the personality department, just like the image suggests.

I started with a piece of water color paper and stamped the image.  Using, distress markers and water color paints, I singled out one cat to resemble my friend's pet and the rest are shaded with her favorite color, purple.  I added a hand drawn frame, sentiment and some star stickers to finish it off.

Enjoy!  TTFN, Jane

I Brake For Beautiful Mums

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today's card was created for I Brake for Stamps using the Beautiful "Large Mums" stamp, and the "Bouquet of love stamp". I also entered my card into todays Splitcoaststampers Sketch challenge. Ok I have to admit, doing clean and simple is a challenge in itself, as I LOVE doing lots of layers....hehehe
For My Mums I stamped those in Back Memento ink, and then colored with copics E57 Light walnut, Y08Acid Yellow, and YR31 Light Reddish Yellow(flowers), Next I used YG03 & G24 (greenery).
 
Bouquet of Love was stamped in SU! Craft Brown ink and then I sprinkled some clear embossing powder over it. Now this is a new clear embossing powder its suppose to be fine, but its large to me, as my old powder was so thin you could hardly see each grain. Oh well. Next I heated it. Not sure I care for how the clear spreads with this new powder.
 
Layers- card stock in cream was cut at 5 1/2" x 11" and then scored at 5 1/2" . Next the brown was cut at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4", then the blue bazzill at 5 x 5, and the Prima design paper at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4", then add sewing.
 
Circles- I used dies to cut out my circles, and then added some white gel dots around the edges of the scallop's
Embellishing- I used a brown gingham to wrap around the front of my card, and then tied my bow. Next I added some dew drops in green to the 4 corners.
 
My card for today was super FAST & EASY to make!
