Thanks A Latte


Merry Christmas, hope everyone is having a wonder day!  After opening Christmas gifts, you might need thank you cards.  I really love the full sheet Coffee, Coffee Beans and Sayings set from I Brake For Stamps, so I used it again this week for this Thanks A Latte card.

The coffee cups were stamped with black and embossed with clear.  It was then colored with Zig Clean Color pens.  Those cute little coffee beens were stamped with blue ink.  A button was added to the center cup and another was glued over the jute cord.

Sending Smiles


Winter's just beginning and I'm ready for Spring, so I'm sharing a Spring inspired card.  I really like this saying, Sending Smiles, from I Brake For Stamps, it's pretty versatile.  I paired it with the Large Fritillaria stamp which is one flower that I stamped multiple times with VersaMark ink and embossed with clear powder.  Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks were sponged over the flowers, then the embossed area was rubbed with a paper towel to remove the ink.  Some diluted Abandoned Coral was splattered over the card the Sending Smiles was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink. A gold gem was placed in the center of one of the flowers and gold stickers were placed randomly around the sentiment.  The panel was then glued to an orange card.

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.

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.
