Floral Garden Card

  Today I am excited to share this stamped floral garden card I created.

I love spring and summer and always spend way too much on my annual flowers for my deck and yard (Just ask my hubby!) but I just love the look of a floral garden. 


 I decided to recreate that look with my stamps to send cheer to someone else! 

This card features the I Brake for Stamps Half Sheet 138B

Just look at all the possibilities with this set.

To recreate this card you will need:


Start by coloring your stamp with water color markers.  It is helpful to use a stamping platform as you will be repeat stamping. Stamp onto papers from the paper pack. 
Repeat stamping layering colors often. 


You can see how this creates such a pretty but subtle little garden. 


Repeat stamping layering colors as desired. 


Stamp Fence on right side of papers .Mask off the left side of the fence post. 

Repeat stamping of fence. 



Finish your card by trimming and matting your stamped image onto your card base. I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to get creative!

Silhouette Stamped Cards

 Hello from design team member, Heidi.  

I recently was playing with this set of stamps from the I Brake for Stamps store simply called Silhouettes #1.  It has a variety of old-timey, maybe Victorian silhouette images. I find them so charming!  I had out this set of watercolor-looking modern patterned papers, and I decided they were going to work together!  I think they did!


The sentiments are from Half Sheet 138B.

I simply stamped the images over top of the patterned paper.  Some I die cut and some I added a little sponged ink.   The green card was put over a background that I created with the flourish stamp in the set. 



The purple card was put over top of a watercolor background I had made with Shimmer Colorbursts. 


This last card I decided to make a mini Slimline card and the image was just the perfect size!  I also added some bakers twine as trim.


 So cute! I really like how these turned out!



It was fun to create several cards all at once using the same set!  Which one do you like best?

Happy Birthday Wishes

 Hi Everyone!

Today I am excited to share with you this floral card I created -



The stamped florals look so pretty on top of the Sweet Passion - Paper Pack 




Start by stamping with thelarge flower onto the masking papers.  Cut out your the flowers. 

Next, stamp the flower repeatedly over the plaid papers from the paper pack, using the flower masks you created earlier. 
The masks allow you to layer the stamps to create a dimensional design.
Use double stick tape to hold them in place while stamping.
Continue stamping until your entire background is filled up. 


Addd some highlights to the flowers using dimensional paint. Matte the stamped background onto your choice of paper from the paper pack and adhere to a card base. 

Stamp the Birthday greetings onto a strip of paper from the paper pack.


Adhere greeting strip to card. 

Finish your card by adding a punched butterfly. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to get creative.

It's Never Just Black or White!

 HI IBFS Fans!

Today I'm sharing a mixed media art journal page combining products from IBFS and BPM!

To create my journal page background I used a stencil designed by DeadSeaToons and available at the BPM Store along with ink sprays, charcoal pencil & posca pens.


The main focal image of my page is a stamp available at the IBFS Store which I stamped onto an old book page covered with gesso.


***Remember to us the code BPMSharon at the store for 15% off ***
So many fab stamps to choose from!
Note: you can use the code at either the IBFS Store OR the BPM Store - why not do an order from each and increase your stash!


Pop over to My Blog and you can see all my stamping creations!

Larkspur Floral Card

  Hello from design team member, Heidi.

 I would love to share with you, this pretty floral stamp!

  The I Brake for Stamps store carries stamps that I call Flower of the Month Stamps.  This Larkspur is for July.  Each of the Flower of the Month stamps comes in a regular size and a Jumbo size.  


The stamp I used for this card is the regular size, but if you often make cards that are larger than A2, or if you like to fill up most of the card front, you may prefer the jumbo size as well.   

Both stamps can be found in the  HERE .


As I stamped and colored my image with alcohol markers, I did emphasize the flower centers with a white gel pen.  My background is a gelli print made with an embossing folder.  I didn’t put the sentiment on this card yet because I think it can be used for anything and I don’t yet know to whom I will send it.
