Teacher Shy Bear

Hi everyone, it's Tuesday so I am back to share a card with all of you.  Today I am using the I Brake For Stamps image, Teacher Shy Bear.  This is the time of year that we all should take a moment to thank a teacher.  Being a teacher myself I can tell you that a thank you can go a long way.  I always try to take a moment to thank all of the teachers who have worked with my own children over the years.

This week's card is a clean and simple card.  Not my typical style of card but I thought this cute image spoke for itself.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

I Brake For Tween Birthdays!

Good day everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my friend's niece who is turning 13. Her only request was that it be bright and fun. I've always loved this verse and thought it would be perfect for her card.
 The verse from I Brake For Stamps is called When You Wish Upon a Star.

All of my dies were Spellbinders and I added some Stickles, silver paint pen and a crystal star.

I Brake For Tulips

Good morning everyone!  It's Tuesday, HOORAY!  That means we are one day closer to the weekend!  Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the I Brake For Stamps digital stamp, Tulip.  I really have some serious spring fever so this image seemed just perfect to fit my mood.

I hope you are enjoying a little spring weather where you are!  It seems to be all I can talk about lately so I hope it arrives soon so I can start talking about something else!

I Brake For Mothers!

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a Mother's Day card. 
These aren't colors I would normally think to put together but when I was looking through my designer paper I really liked this one.  I paired it with Stampin' Ups Pool Party and Real Red.

My verse is from I Brake For Stamps.
I love cursive writing and I really like how delicate this wording is.
The stamp is called Happy Mother's Day.

  Inside I used Strawberry Border.

I Brake For Prayers!

Hey all, Kristen here with a bit of a sad heart today, as I am sure many of you heard about the bombing at the Boston Marathon yesterday.  I am originally from Mass, and lived there most of my life, and as a little girl, and every year for years, my Grandmother and Aunt used to take me to the Boston Marathon.  It has always been a great memory for me, and it just saddens me that it is now tainted by a terrorist attack.  What has this world come to???? So, with the yesterdays news so fresh in my mind, I decided to put some of my emotions into my card today.  There were 3 people killed yesterday, and one of them was an 8 yo little boy, so that is what I had in mind today when I was getting creative.  I used the Boy Praying stamp from I brake for stamps, combined with my new authentique DP, and came up with this very simple card.  As I will be praying for all of the people of Boston, I hope you will too. Have a great evening!

Daisy Pot Shy Bear

Hi everyone!  How are you on this Tuesday.  Marlena here again to share with you a card I made using the Daisy Pot Shy Bear stamp.  This is my first time using a Shy Bear stamp but they sure are adorable.  It also gave me a little more practice at coloring fur with my copic markers, which is always a challenge for me.  This image could be used for a variety of reasons, including a Mother's Day card, which is coming up soon here in the United Stated.

See what I mean, isn't he a cutie!  There are so many other shy bear stamps, each cuter than the next.  You know where to find them, I Brake For Stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

I Brake for Fine Wine!

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card made with one of my new favorite stamps from I Brake For Stamps! 
I do so love my wine and a good friend of mine does too so this will probably be her birthday card.

The image is called Wine and Grapes  and can be purchased on it's own or HERE on a full sheet of beautiful fruit stamps. Happy Birthday is part of the verse called Good Example

And...(it took them long enough) I can tell you that the embossing folder is Poppy by Anna Griffin for Cuttlebug because they FINALLY are printing the names on the folder!  Yay!

The grape leaves were made with punches and the vines are raffia.  The tab is a McGill punch.

Sending Cheerful Thoughts...

Hi Everyone, it's Robyn here today.  I have a card to share with you that uses a stamp sheet that's perfect for mass producing cards of many different occasions.  The stamp sheet is called Inspirational Plate #2.  It has lovely sentiments for: thank you, thinking of you, friendship, encouragement, and quotes from inspirational people of days gone by.  I love sheets like this and the font on each of the different sentiments is just beautiful, not to mention versatile.  Hope it brings you a bit of cheer.

Thank so much for stopping by today.  =)

I Brake For Nurses!

Hi All, Kristen here with a crazy, silly card for you today. I haven't shared with you, but I am a Registered Nurse and I am crazy about medical and nursing images. The crazier, the better, and this Stella Nurse image is just hysterical....I made this card for my cousin who will be graduating nursing school. I tried to mix the school theme with the nurse image for the whole effect.  This would also make a great humorous get well card. Well, I hope you enjoyed the card and I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Happy Stamping!

I Brake For Really Cute Mice!

Hello everyone! 

 Today I'm sharing a super cute pair of stamps that I just love!  They're both from I Brake For Stamps as is the Happy Birthday verse.  The mice stamps are Mouse and Cheese Slide and Mouse and Cheese.  I stamped one of the mice twice and cut out the head so he could peek out of one of the Swiss Cheese holes.

 I used Spellbinders circle dies to cut the holes and make the circles and frame for the verse.

I printed words off my computer for the inside.

The border along the inside was made made with an EK Success border punch.

Celestial Fairy

Hi everyone, it's Tuesday so I'm back with another post using a great I Brake For Stamps image.  This week I am using the image Celestial Fairy and it is a cute one.  I often color any celestial images in deep blues and yellows, and that is what I did here as well.  If you would like a complete list of the colors I used when coloring this sweet image then click HERE to get to my blog, which is where you will find that list.

Of course all fairies must have plenty of sparkle and this fairy sparkles even more with her moons and stars!
