Today I say good bye to fussy cutting ..lol , I love the cut out look but if you are doing a bunch I have the answer  , I have a Silhouette and have created a cut file so I can cut out the die shape  , how I did this is I stamp my image on cardstock and scan into my computer and then I open the file in my silhouette design studio and create and offset cut  and then I tighten it closer to my stamped lines  I can cut 6 per page so I set it up and cut 6 at a time

humorous witch 001

next I created a stamp positioner out of old legos , I line a plastic sheet up to the corner of my lego stamp my image onto the plastic

humorous witch 003

next I use a bit of tape to hold the die cut into place and then slide my clear stamped sheet over the cut to line up then you put the L shape positioner back on the corner and remove the plastic sheet and then stamp my image

humorous witch 003

tah -dah , this is so easy and love the results

humorous witch 004

if you leave me a commit and sent me an email requesting the cut file to go with your witch stamp  I will send it to you for free  ( only works in the Silhouette ) , send the request to Crystal@thelopezcrew.net and in subject title IBFS Witch cut file , don't forget to commit and if you like the idea of cut file to go with you IBFS images let me know and ill make more to give away .

I Brake For Fall Flowers


{Jane Bosi}

I just needed to color!  I adore this image called, Kerr Jar, from I Brake For Stamps!  Choosing the right colors makes it an incredibly versatile image!

Way back when, I did this one:




It's all springy with a fresh flower feel, bright colors that say sunshine!

This past weekend, it was barely above freezing in my little neck of the woods.  The air is crisp and the smells of fall are all around.  I'm not sure how, exactly, to describe the smell of falling leaves, but I am sure you can use your imaginations.

The flowers, in today's sample, were colored with Copic markers in a more fall like color scheme--can you feel it?

Thanks for looking!

TTFN, Jane

I Brake For Skelly Tonn!

Hello and happy Saturday!

I have to apologize for missing last Saturday...which I believe is my first time since joining the team on March 3, 2012.  My computer charger cord broke and I had no way of uploading my photos or posting to my blog.  Wow!  Before you know it I'll be coming up on my 3rd anniversary!

Today I'm sharing a really fun Halloween image!  This one is called Skelly Tonn.  It's from the Rick St. Dennis line at I Brake For Stamps.


I used a variety of dies and punches to accent this amazing stamp.  The window was made with a Spellbinders Grand die.  The fence is from Martha Stewart, the spider web is Memory Box and the bats and sign post are from Quickutz.


I used Copic markers to color them.

I Brake for Halloween ..

Hello I Brake for Stamps fans !!!

It's Crystal here and today's card is using the Vampire from the Humorous Seniors Halloween stamp set and you will find it at the I Brake for Stamps online store , it comes with 4 images and two inside sentiments . I made my sentiment go further by stamping it and cutting it apart to build a sentiment for my speech bubble on the front of my card , I used vellum for this you can see thru and not lose any of my background and speaking of background , just look at this 6 x 6 sheet of paper I loved the trees and bats and decided to use it  , I then colored my vampire and fussy cut him out . And lets not forget to stamp the envelope .. Eye Candy ....so anyone who sees it is wonder what the inside holds .

I Brake For Floral Silhouette Bouquet

Good morning peeps I know I have used this stamp previously and hope you don't mind seeing it again as this as always been one of my all time favorites.


For todays card I have used the Floral Silhouette Bouquet from IBFS and the sentiment It's Your Day  from Half Sheet 138B
I saw a similar card on Pinterest by Scrappin and Stampin loved her layout and card with this stamp I changed mine around a little by using purples instead of yellows and black and also used a different embossing folder.....but must say very pleased with the outcome.

Hope you have enjoyed my post this week will be back next Tuesday with something new....have a great week.

Hugs Beth
