Christmas Light Hanging

I sure wish these cute little House-Mouse guys could help me with my decorations! These little guys are so cute and fun to color.  Here is how my card was made;

1.  The stamp is a House-Mouse stamp called Hanging Lights and was colored with colored pencils.
2.  Blue decorative chalk was used to color behind them with a flat brush.
3.  The Holly Background stamp was stamped on a green card with Mowed Lawn Distress ink.
4.  The sentiment was stamped on the card with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and embossed with clear powder.
5.  Fitted Frames were used to diecut the frame from red and white paper and for a little accent Red Dot Sparklers were used.

Going Shabby Chic

For today's I Brake For Stamps post, I'm going with a shabby chic style card.  I have a Prima pad of paper and thought it would be perfect for this style of flower stamp, from the Fruit and Flowers Sheet set. Here's how my card was made;

1.  The flower was stamped with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, the edges were sponged with Tea Dye and Worn Lipstick.
2.  The word flowers was randomly stamped with Tea Dye ink, stamping twice before reinking.
3.  The bottom was die cut using a Spellbinders die and pink pearls were placed in the centers.
4.  This was layered onto brown cardstock and tied with pale pink ribbon.
5.  Then it was layered onto pink cardstock and glued onto a dark brown card.

This week the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing Christmas cards to inspire those of you who haven't started on your cards yet. You'd better get started, time has a way of flying by!

I used the Painting Stripes stamp, colored it with watercolor pencils and shadowed it with blue chalk.  The row of candy canes at the bottom, is  a portion of the Peppermint Plenty which is a larger stamp.

Birthday Time!

Happy Sunday!  And that means it's time for my,  I Brake for Stamps post. I used the  Party Balloons and  Dot Letter Happy Birthday to make a fun and festive birthday card.  I made a card using these same stamps a few weeks ago and it looks completely different, you can see it HERE.

The Party Balloons were stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  They were then colored with Zig Clean Color pens. I stamped Happy and Birthday separately even though they are one stamp. Happy was stamped on a tab that was punched from orange paper and Birthday was stamped in black below the balloons.  The whole stamp was stamped with blue to make the background.

All Occasion Note Cards

Some of my favorite cards to make are clean and simple, they look so fresh and pretty.  That's the style I used to make some note cards using stamps from I Brake For Stamps.  The roses and words are from the Fruit and Flowers Sheet set, and I really like the Victorian look that they have.

To make the green card, the roses were stamped on a white panel with Peeled Paint Distress ink. A thin strip of Scor-Tape was placed below the roses, Beautiful was stamped below that three times and then more Scor-Tape was placed below that.  The liner was then removed and ultra fine gold glitter was rubbed on the tape.  This as then layered onto a green panel and mounted to a white card. As a finishing touch a few gold Dot Sparklers were added around the roses.
