Lovely Fruit


Hi stamping friends, today sharing a sparkly, fruity, love card made with stamps from I Brake For Stamps. To make my card, I colored the strawberry from the I Brake For Stamps Fruit and Flowers Sheet set, with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and stamped it on a white die cut panel. It was then colored with Prisma pencils.  The panel was sponged with Tea Dye ink and layered onto brown and blue papers. This was then glued to a tan card that was randomly stamped with Love and a small strawberry, from the same set using Tea Dye Ink. Tea Dye Ink was sponged around the card and blue glitter washi tape was added to the side. To add a bit more interest, gold Dot Sparkler stickers were added to the stamped panel.

Stop by the I Brake For Stamps website and take a look at the large variety of stamps they carry.  Be sure to use the coupon code SAVE10JAMIE to get 10% off your order.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to Stamp This!

Christmas Love


Hi and welcome to my first post as a Design Team Member for the new
Season's Greetings Challenge Blog!


It's Christmas all year long, so whether you're a procrastinator or not you'll want to join in on these challenges.  At the end of the year you'll already have a bunch of your Christmas cards done!

I'm on team Kangaroo and we post the 2nd Tuesday of the month and team Koala posts a new challange the 4th Tuesday of the month if you're in Australia.  Since I'm in the USA and Season's Greetings posts from Australia, my posts will go live at 3 pm the day before which will be the 2nd Monday of each month at 3:00 pm.

Here's how I made my card;
1.  Diecut and oval from a white panel a little smaller than a card.
2.  Stamp the panel with Peppermints Plenty from with VersaMark ink.  Emboss with white embossing powder and sponge with Fire Brick Distress Ink. After sponging, wipe off the embossing powder to remove ink from the embossed area.
3.  Center your panel on a white card and with a pencil put a couple of marks around the opening so when you remove the panel, you will know where to stamp your image.
4.  Stamp Candy Can Kiss from Stampendous, on your card in the enter of the pencil marks with Onyx Black VersFine ink.
5.  Color image with Prisma colored pencils and use decorative chalks to shade around the image with blue.
6.  For the snow, I sprinkled Spoonful of Snow embossing powder at the bottom of the image and wiped off the snow from the image with a brush.  The embossing powder was then heated from underneath the paper so it wouldn't blow off.
7. Foam tape was placed on the back side of the Peppermints Plenty panel and attached to the stamped card.
8.  Merry Christmas as stamped on a small tag, tied with cord and popped up on the card.

Supplies
Stampendous- Peppermint Plenty, Candy Cane Kiss, Spoonful of Snow, White Embossing Powder ( click HERE to go to the Stampendous Store Locator to find a store near you)
Inks-VersaMark Ink, Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, Fire Brick Distress Ink
Pencils- Prisma colored pencils

Ombre Birthday Card


Happy Sunday, today I'm sharing an ombre birthday card using the resist technique.  I made this using the Large Fritillaria and Dot Letter Happy Birthday stamps from I Brake For Stamps. The ombre look is really popular right now and I can see why, it's a beautiful! 

To make this card-
1.  I repeatedly stamped Large Fritillaria on a white panel with VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear.  
2.  Then I started off by sponging Tumbled Glass ink, from the top working my way down.  When I sponge, I used the round foam sponges and cut them into quarters.  I have the sponging tools but if find that I'm always reaching for the sponges.
3.  Next Salty Ocean was sponged to about the middle of the panel.  
4.  Lastly Faded Jeans was sponged at the top. When done I rubbed the embossed areas with a paper towel to remove any remaining ink.
5.  Dot Letter Happy Birthday was stamped on a black strip of paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  This was then glued onto the ombre panel with Zip Dry Glue.
6.  Dot stickers were added to the panel and it was then glued to a larger black panel to make the colors pop and mounted onto  a white card.

Head on over to the I Brake For Stamps website and take a look at all of the stamps that they have.  If you order, be sure to use the coupon code SAVE10JAMIE to save 10% off your order!

I hope I have inspired you to Stamp This!

Some Things Are Better Rich


Happy Sunday, that means it's time to post a card made with stamps from I Brake For Stamps.  Today I'm sharing a fun and funny card to give to a friend, just because. Sometimes you want to send a card for no specific reason other than to put a smile on their face.

To make this card;
1.  Stamp the sentiment (all stamps from MS79 Full Plate of Coffee and Sayings Set) on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
2.  Now it's time to layer.  Layer the stamped panel onto a white panel that is slightly smaller than a card, then layer that panel onto a white card.
3.  Holding the panels firmly in place, randomly stamp the coffee beans with Sepia VersaFine Ink, on all 3 panels being sure to have the coffee beans stamped off the edge of all panels.
4.  Heat set to dry ink then sponge the edges of all panels and card with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
5.  Layer the two panels on black paper and glue to card with Zip Dry Glue.

I hope I have inspired you to Stamp This!

Obsessive Cat Disorder


Stampendous is now carrying Laurel Burch line of stamps and the Stampendous Design Team has a bunch to show you this week.  The Laurel Burch style is vibrant, primary colors which is beautiful and I love looking at her fun and creative creations.  Primary colors aren't my specialty and this is about as primary as I can get.

1.  The cat and butterfly from the Cling Indigo Cats Set, are colored with Staedtler Watercolor Pencils and matching die from the Indigo Cats Die Set were used to cut them out.
2.  To make the background, Leather Flowers was stamped on watercolor paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Different colors of Gelato's were scribbled on the flowers.  A baby wipe was used to spread the color and a dry paper towel was wiped across the top to remove any remaining Gelato's from the embossing powder.This was glued to a larger black and white panels then glued to a blue card. Set aside.
3.  The sentiment from Cat Sayings Perfectly Clear Set was stamped on acetate with black StazOn Ink then cut out.
4.  The diecut pieces were glued to the card with Zip Dry Glue and the sentiment was attached to the card with Blue Dot Sparklers.  Additional Dot Sparklers were placed down the left side of the card.
