I am just loving this Fall/Winter Collage Set! It's just gorgeous!
I popped up my snowman and also used glittered chipboard letters to make my "frosty" pop.
Image is from Holiday Squares by I Brake For Stamps. I colored it with Copics. Click on the picture below for a close-up of that sparkly frost!
You can read more about this card on my blog. Have a great day!

Hello Everyone, it's Robyn here with a gorgeous image from IBFS called 1902 Cottage. Such a nice all-occasion stamp that works well for projects for either guys or gals. I love the quaint cottage and the lovely yard, it puts me to mind of the thatched cottages I sometimes see here in Ireland. More details of what I used on this card are on my blog.
LARK image stamped with rubber from I BRAKE FOR STAMPS. Image stamped on Basic Grey cardstock with ColorBox Moss Liquid Chalk and colored with chalk. Brass brads sprayed with rust spray paint and paper flowers from Prima.

I needed to play with some non-Christmassy papers today, and the first package that jumped into my hands was October Afternoon's Thrift Shop papers. These looked like they would be fun to pair up with the Sweet Stop's sketch, so all I needed to do was find a stamp to fit with the papers and the sketch. This sentiment from I Brake for Stamps was perfect.
These papers reminded me of my grandmothers, and I wanted to convey a distressed, old-timey feel without sponging a lot of brown inks over these gorgeous papers. I found the Distressed Papers technique from Technique Junkies and that was the exact technique I needed. Once I made that decision, this card came together in less than ten minutes. Don't you just love it when the mojo hits ya? :-)
Stamps: I Brake for Stamps
Ink: Soft Suede, Antique Linen distress
CS: Soft Suede, Thrift Shop (October Afternoon)
Other: sponge, Bazzill Half the Edge strips, prima flowers, button (PTI), linen thread, Soft Suede ribbon, oval dies (Spellbinders), sandpaper
Technique: Distressed Paper

I colored the adorable little Jester Bear from I Brake for Stamps with Copic markers and I paper pieced his hat and collar. I then decided to do the same thing for the little jester-on-a-stick so it looks just like the big bear.
The little bells are colored with a silver glitter pen and they match the silver brads that I used on the pocket. This card is one of the techniques, called the Attached Pocket Notecard, on the new Fancy Folds & Motion CD from Technique Junkies. Keep checking the I Brake for Stamps store - Della just might have these cd's for sale soon!

Writing Stamp and then a floral flourish into texture paste. I then used my Vintage Santa, I absolutely adore this stamp. Of course all the stamps used are from I Brake For Stamps, where else could you find such a vast variety to choose from and such fab prices.
If you would like the deets please pop on over to my blog.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year.
See you again soon.

I used Large Snowman Post from I Brake For Stamps and colored it with Copics. I then added Spica Glitter pens to the whole image - I wish I could get it to show in the picture, because it is so sparkly!
I love this image and it was so much fun to color. You can see more about this card on my blog HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Have you seen the "Ladies" over in the I Brake for Stamps store? There is a lady for each season, and they are all gorgeous! I bought all four of them and after coloring this Lady of Winter, I can't wait to color the other three.
I used Copic markers to color in the flowers, leaves, pinecones, lady, and the tiny little birdie in her hand. I also used some Creative Inspirations Paint - yellow in the centers of the flowers and a bright red for the berries. Look over in the lower left hand corner at that poinsettia. I used the Paper Tole technique (from Technique Junkies) on that flower for a little dimension.

It's Holly posting today. I gave this card to my Mom for Christmas this year. She loves flowers and ribbons and fancy, feminine, detailed cards like this, so I knew this would be perfect for her. :-)
The sentiment, JOY, comes from the Every Day Phrases sheet at I Brake for Stamps. I love this versatile sheet of sentiments - it makes my cardmaking so easy. The rest of this card uses patterned paper from Memory Box and May Arts ribbon and a glittery Prima flower.

I had to stop with the Christmas images---not that I don't love them---but these clowns have been enticing me for waaaaayyyyy too long! All week, on my blog, I'll be sharing a clown and a technique! Today's technique is called Sepia (TJNL October 2009) and it really makes the image pop! Don't you think? Speaking of images, if you haven't already seen these amazing clowns by Rick St. Dennis, check them out!
Cute, cute, cute!!! Have an amazing, circus like day :) TTFN, Jane
