I Brake For Men Who Cook

Hi Everybody!  Regina here and I have to tell you that I Brake For Stamps has just about any stamp that you could possibly be looking for.  They have over 4,000 stamps so that's to be expected right?  I needed to make a birthday card for my boyfriend and I found the perfect stamps.  He is an awesome cook, grills so good and is on a BBQ team that competes. We are going to St. Louis toward the end of the week so we'll be there during his birthday so wait until you see the stamps I used. 

Here is a link to I Brake For Stamps and I used these two stamps, Kiss The Chef and St. Louis Arch.

This is a pretty straight forward card.  I colored the image with Copics and cut the image out using a Spellbinders die. The Let's Eat Y'all is a cut file from the Silhouette Store, design # 13324.  I used a Lawn Fawn Die for the Happy Birthday sentiment.  I cut out stars with a Spellbinders die to match the patterned paper.  I have a 6x6 paper pad with burlap paper so I used that to make the ribbon banners.  I added the copper nailheads in the corners.  

On the inside I used a Spellbinders die that matches the front die but larger and used the Silhouette Sketch Pens to write inside.  I am horrible at writing in cards and my handwriting isn't so great anymore so I love using the Silhouette pens.  These are the ones I have...  Silhouette Pens Starter Kit and Silhouette Glitter Sketch Pens and Silhouette Starter Kit.  Not sure how I acquired all of these but I love the glitter ones.  I have written in many cards with the black glitter pen.  All you do is figure out what size paper you are going to put in your card and put those measurements in the silhouette on the screen where you put your paper size and then you put your text where you want it on the paper and it will write it out there.  

I used Versamark and embossed the St. Louis Arch stamp with black embossing powder and colored the Arch with a Sakura glitter pen.
