I Brake For.....Garden Still Life!

Hello stampers!  Nancy here today!!   Let's get ready for spring planting...

This darling little stamp is called Garden Still Life and can be found HERE.

I had intended this to be a "one layer card", but one layer led to another and it soon became multiple layers!  I kept the color scheme simple - red and green.  I love how the red pops out - and made the ribbon on the hat white with black polka dots!

I colored the image with copics, using a stitched square die and swiss dot embossing folder to frame it out.  I love red gingham ribbon and added a touch of it to the bottom.

This is a small, adorable stamp that still makes a statement on a card.  It is probably my most favorite from IBFS and this card is a little bittersweet for me.  This post is my last as a design team member for IBFS.  I used this stamp for my first DT card and thought it was fitting to use a my last.

I have absolutely loved being on this team!  The other designers are wonderful and the owner Della has been so generous. The  sheer variety of stamps is wonderful and the rubber is high quality, deep etched.   I'm taking a break from design team work because we have a bunch of things going on here at home - all good!  We've already started some long overdue home improvement projects, with more to do through the summer.  In between those, we are taking a couple of weeks next month for some traveling, and after that have family coming to visit.  We'll be busy throughout the summer and I hope to get a little stamping done in between.  

In the meantime, I hope you check out the thousands of stamps available at IBFS.   Thanks so much for stopping by today!


  1. It is still clean and simple even if it isn’t one layer. Very pretty and a great stamp for this time of year! I love it! Thanks for sharing and hope you get a lot done on your dt break.

  2. Gorgeous coloring and I love the stamp image. This is a wonderful card design.
