I Brake For Flowers!

Happy Easter all, Kristen here with a card for you today.  I used the sunflower bucket stamp from I Brake For Stamps, and some new DP I have recently purchased, and came up with this card. Had I planned better, I would have used more Easter themed colors, but spring is here, so I think this should work. 
   I absolutely love the watering can in this stamp, as it looks so real, and I feel that it really makes the flowers pop, don't you think?  Well, I hope you all had a wonderfully holiday and enjoy the rest of you weekend!

I Brake For Beautiful Lighthouses!

Hello everyone.
 Today I'm sharing a sympathy card with you. I sell a lot of my cards and take orders locally. My second biggest request behind birthdays are sympathy cards. I sold 3 last week and when my sister called for one she was upset to learn that she had missed out on this one.  I'll make her another one of course but I couldn't get it done in time for the person she wanted when she called.

The beautiful image is from I Brake For Stamps and it's called LARGE LIGHTHOUSE.
I colored it with Copics.  Since there's minimal coloring with this image and it's so large this card came together very quickly...always a plus.

Cammy in the Wind

Hi everyone, it's Tuesday again so it's Marlena here to share a card with you.  Today I used another great image from Chelsea Le Designs, Cammy in the Wind.  This little cutie is perfect for our late March weather here in the northeast.  We have plenty of wind, which will hopefully mean that the warmer spring weather will be blown on in!  Let's hope so, I am ready for some fun in the sun!

I try to vary my colors as much as possible since I often create several projects every week.  This time around I used oranges and yellows.  Pretty early spring colors, don't you think?
I'm glad you stopped by,

Easter! It's not just for bunnies..

Hey Brake Fans!!
Today I'm sharing a super cute image called Daisy Pot Shy Bear
I got some new paper and embossing folders and have been dieing to use them.
I thought the yellow paper would be cute with this stamp.

The great thing about daisies is they look like so many other flowers.  I made them Brown Eyed Susans to match my paper.

 Inside I used HAPPY EASTER.

 There are TONS of Shy Bear stamps and you can find them all HERE.

Hi everyone, Marlena here to share with you a card I made using the I Brake For Stamps image, Lilies.  With Easter being right around the corner I thought this image would be great for a card.  We always have lilies on the altar at church at Easter time.  I wish spring were following along, we could use spring right about now!

I hope you are enjoying better weather in your neck of the woods than we are!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

I Brake For Cammy In The Wind!

Happy Saturday, Kristen here this afternoon with a Cammy card for you today.  If you haven't noticed, I just love these Chelsea Le Designs at I Brake For Stamps. I just think she is adorable, and in case you missed it earlier in the week, I brake for Stamps added 3 new images to their store ....Wahooo...
   For my card today, I used a simple sketch, and this beautiful red and blue DP, which I think really makes the image pop. You see, I am more of a bold brights, rather than a pastel kinda girl....LOL....Well, I have a few minutes to play, so I am going to take the opportunity to get inky. Have a great weekend and happy stamping :)

I Brake For the Easter Bunny!

Today I'm sharing an adorable stamp from I Brake For Stamps

The image is called LARGE RABBIT.
You can find it as an individual stamp or on  MS110 Full Plate which has lots of really sweet animals on it. 

This little sweetie is really making me wish it were Spring!

My dies are all from Spellbinders and I used Copic markers to color the image.

I Brake For Raspberry Blossoms!

                                                                  Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a beautiful new stamp that I just got from I Brake For Stamps.It's called Kerr Jar, which I have to admit I didn't understand the name until I noticed the brand of mason jar was Kerr.  (obviously I don't can)  The berries and flowers are so pretty.  I just had to have this stamp.

I stamped the image in a light gray ink so that the jar would look as clear as possible.

Fashion Lady #7

Hi everyone, Marlena here today with a project for you using Fashion Lady #7.  I used red and turquoise for my color combination on this project.  I liked the way these two colors looked together and I thought I would try them out for myself.  This color combination is of course inspired by Pinterest.  Thank you to my sister-in-law for pinning these fabulous colors!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Easter Bunny Bear

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here today.  Happy March 1st! =)  Easter falls on March 31st this year, so it's time to "brake" out those Easter/Spring papers and make some Easter projects.  I have an adorable little Bunny Bear stamp to share with you today.  He's all ready with his little basket of eggs.    This stamp comes already cut and mounted on cling foam, too!
I used my markers to color the bear, basket and eggs and paper pieced this cute polka dot patterned paper for the little bunny costume.   The card measures 5.5" x 5.5".

Hope this little guy inspires you.  You can find this stamp in the IBFS store HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful weekend!
