Need a masculine card idea?

Happy Wednesday!  It's Robyn here today with 3 masculine cards using the Under Par stamp from IBFS.  I have varied the theme to give you an idea of how versatile this stamp can be.  Of course, many more themes could have been used with this great stamp.  Hope you like seeing them and to get a closer look at this stamp, you can click HERE to go directly to the store page.

I've colored in the image using my Letraset Promarkers.  The paper collection on all 3 cards is from the Et Cetera line by BoBunny.

 This next one, I've paper pieced together.  So, if you don't fancy coloring...this is a fabulous option!

Okay, that's it for me for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  We always appreciate it.

Several cards to share...

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here today.  Boy, have I been having a card making fiesta!  I love it!  I was going to space these cards out over several weeks, but decided...nope!  Share them all today!  Hope you enjoy seeing them.

 This stamp is one of the Wee stamps stocked by I Brake for Stamps.  This one is called Wee Suzy.  She's so cute!  There are a lot more Wee stamps on the IBFS website.  You can see them all HERE.
 Here is a second card that I made using the Wee Suzy (by Designer Sylvia Zet) and carried by I Brake for Stamps.

 This gorgeous little S.W.A.L.K. stamp is called Grandma.  She's lovely isn't she?  I love this image and couldn't wait to color it in using my Promarkers.

Moving down to this one (below).  Well, I have to say that it just warms my heart.  What a great stamp to brighten someone's day.  It's so precious!
 It is called "Mummy" and would you believe that this little cutie is on the Clearance Rack?  Yup, sure is and you can find it (while supplies last) right HERE.

 Below, is another of the S.W.A.L.K stamps...can you tell they're some of my faves?  So cute!  This one (below) is called The Present.  You can see it HERE.

I sure hope you've found a bit of inspiration here today.  These images as with all the images from IBFS stamp beautifully and make wonderful additions to your cards and projects.   Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We always appreciate it so much!

Cute Couple...

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here on this cold Michigan Wednesday.  If you have a little sunshine and warmth to spare would you send some my way?  Burrrr!  Hopefully, this will brighten things up a bit; I have an anniversary card to share with you today.  I've used the Bride and Groom Couple stamp from IBFS and some purdy Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

The card measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".  I've used my largest rectangle nestie to cut the image out and then cut a black mat with my paper trimmer.  I've added some seam binding and a vintage-looking brad and a bit of bling.  Hope you enjoy seeing it.

Thanks for popping in to see what we've been up to.  I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week.

Hi! TGIF- time for a new Card Design!

Hi, Elsa here with another card. By the time I was done using all side punches and nestablility dies on this card it turned out to be a huge card measuring 7x6! I added just a lil' teal in with the black and white to add hint of color.  The hat stamp "Vintage Hats"  -on its own is not a really big stamp but inside the nesty it took a life of its own, ain't it just beautiful? I love this stamp!  The rosettes across the base of the card you can also find at the I BRAKE FOR STAMPS site, they are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
For more details on this card come visit my blog at Just a Few Designs.

Easy Peasy!

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here today.  I've had such a good time mass producing cards this week.  This card is just one set of cards that I created.  This is such a simple card so it was really easy to make a number of them in a short period of time.  They are flat as well, so perfect for sending through the mail.
Once again, I've used my favorite stamp sheet from IBFS.  It's called Inspirational Phrases and it's one I reach for over and over - SO versatile!  

Thanks for stopping by today.  We always appreciate you checking out what the DT have been up to.  Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Design Team Call....And, A Little Something....

{Jane Bosi} Today, I have a cute little dressy number! This is my favorite "fashion" image from I Brake For Stamps. I just love how the dress flows.... I'm not a very dressy person in my real life, but if I had a little black (or yellow) dress like this, I'm sure I'd love it! I've completed my card with a few Technique Junkie techniques--the background is called Faux Washi and the image is done with Out of the Box--a simple, yet effective technique. If you'd like more information about these techniques, feel free to visit my blog!

BY THE WAY!!! Have you heard IBFS is having a Design Team Call??? Follow this link for all of the information! And, have yourself an INKY day! TTFN, Jane

Be Mine Valentine

Good morning! Are you ready for a new challenge from the I Brake for Challenges blog? Today's theme is Love, and it's perfect for making some Valentine cards. Can you believe Valentine's Day is only two weeks from now?

For my card, I stamped this gorgeous scalloped heart five times onto a kraft card base. Each heart is paper pieced with a different patterned paper, and I added a few embellishments to several of the hearts. The beautiful sentiment is from I Brake for Stamps' MS102 Full Plate set - a wonderful collection of love-themed sentiments.

Head on over to the I Brake for Challenges blog to see what my fellow DT ladies created. Share your love-themed cards with us while you're there! :-)

Stamps: MS81 Full Plate (scalloped heart), MS102 Full Plate (Be Mine Valentine sentiment) --- I Brake for Stamps

CS: Kraft, Crazy Love (Bo Bunny)
Other: flowers, button, brad, pearls

Get Well Wishes...

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here today.  I have a Get Well card that I made for a friend of mine.  I hope it brightens her day and lets her know how special I think she is.  I've used 3 different stamp sheets; which happen to be all 3 on my favorite's list.  The outside sentiment came from Every Day Phrases, the lovely butterflies came from Butterfly Kisses, and last but not all-time favorite sheet...Inspirational Phrases.  I use that sheet, it seems, for every card I create!  Very versatile!
I fussy cut the butterflies and only adhered them to the card along the thorax so the wings would be dimensional.

Hope you enjoy seeing it.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  We always appreciate your time.  Have a great rest of your week!

Crafty Hugs,
