These wonderful stamps come from some of the new and some my favorites from the I Brake for Stamps websiteThis adorable Fairy is one of the newly carried images from Embossing Arts (click HERE to see her).

I love Autumn...

The changing of Summer to Autumn has always been one of my favorite times of the year. The rich colors, the return of routine, the cooler weather, anticipation of the holidays...ahhhh nostalgia! I suppose that is one reason why I love the Fall-Half sheet from I Brake for Stamps so much. I think each of the images has so much that you can create with them, and the gorgeous images make you want to reach for them and use them...frequently!

For this card, I've used the small pumpkin from the set and have masked it to create a row of three. I especially love their plump shape and the fact that they have leaves and vines; which I've not seen elsewhere. This set is sure to stay a favorite set of mine for a long, long time!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Happy Creating,
Robyn

"Sew" Sweet of You...

This card was created using the Vintage Sewing stamp sheet from I Brake for Stamps. I used the dress form, the measuring tape, the hook-n-eye, and the word "sew". I created this for my eldest daughter as a "thank you" for being such a sweet blessing. :c) I just love it when my kiddos do something helpful without being asked. :c) Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.

Bingo!

{Jane Bosi} Happy almost middle of October! I love October for so many reasons--Halloween is just one of them! I made this card a few days ago using Girl On Pumpkin and a few other goodies from IBFS!

The background panel features the Cuttlebug Smoosh techninque and the Tim Holtz Bingo embossing folder. I'm not 100% on the connection between halloween and bingo, but I think it works!! LOL!

How are you using that folder??? Get inky and give us a show!
TTFN--Jane

Beautiful Fairy

Here's one of the beautiful new fairy stamps from one of the new stamp lines that I Brake for Stamps recently started selling, Embossing Arts. I just love this Fairy. She's so dainty and gentle looking. You can find her on this page (click HERE) on the website. I used a great saying with her that comes from a sheet of stamps full of gnomes and fairies. I also used a cute paisley stamp in the background. It's hard to see on this image from the scan as it was stamped with a very light ink but it shimmers in same color as the cardstock so its shiny and eye catching in person. If you haven't visited the on-line store lately, you need to check it out, they have been adding new goodies all the time. Be sure to use they coupon when you go to get 10% off anything you purchase: SAVE10HOLLEY

Paper Pumpkin Patch...

Hi Ladies, for today's card I've used the gorgeous Fall - Half sheet available from I Brake for Stamps. I've used the large pumpkin, small pumpkin, and acorn stamps from this sheet. I masked several of them to make them look like a little pumpkin patch. :c)
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great week.

Feeling Gnomey?

Hee Hee! I've {Jane Bosi} been gnomey for about a week now! I created this card for the TJNL Blog Hop, but just couldn't resist sharing it here, too! If you've ever struggled with large images, this card is a good example of "making it fit"--who hasn't tried to stuff their size 12 into a 10 a time or two? Same concept applies here, but with much better results!

I really wanted a Gnome image to go with this technique piece (Pencil Highlights) and thought myself a bit brainy by making it work. One of the things I love best about these little dwarfy images are the facial features--rosy cheeks and the eyes! This sketch was a great way to spotlight this adorable fellow! My sentiment, also true and a fun favorite, is from IBFS and can be found here. (Called "Wonderful")
Have a wonderful Monday and, as always, get inky!~

I am enjoying the new layout and I love looking through the new format and seeing all the new stamps being added. Be sure to use the coupon code next time you go shopping to get 10% off your order, code is: SAVE10HOLLEY

Hope you have a great weekend!

So Thankful

I love this Autumn stamp sheet from I Brake for Stamps called "Fall half sheet." You can find it HERE. I embossed the leaves using copper embossing powder and then colored them in using my ink pads and aqua painter. I LOVE this time of year!
