Grannies Gone Wild

I Brake For Stamps has so many of these adorable images I never seem to be able to stop creating fun cards with them! Meet Granny, she's Gone Wild!! (Now that I think of it, maybe I DID see her in one of those videos~!!). So fun! Her hair is done with Liquid Applique which was applied and then heated with a heat tool. Strands of beads are from JoAnn's and the image was painted with Stampin' Up! markers. Enjoy!!

Martinis and Olives

I Brake For Stamps has turned me into an embellishing maniac with these images. I am having so much fun with these girls. You can find these on the IBFS website under one of their many companies, "The Merry Stamper". There is no end to the possibilites when it comes to embellishing these ladies! I thought this young lady was in desperate need of an olive or two for her martini so I did my part and made a couple for her. This image was colored with Marvy Inks and I added some sparkle to her drink with a 2-way glue pen and some glitter. The olives were made from circle punches and glued onto a round tooth pick. Cheers!! (Be sure to click on the photo for a larger version and you can really enjoy the bling on her drink!)

Tulle Lady

A fun and fabulous "I Brake For Stamps" image( I watercolored the image with Marvy Ink Pads and a paint brush. These stamps just BEG for embellishments and I did my best to due them justice. This lady has a small piece of tulle wrapped around her hips~I cut small slits alongside of the image and thredded it through each side and tied it in the front! Easy peasy. The strand of beads are from a.muse~I purchased them at Red Rubber Stamps in Glendale, AZ (602-298-8600). They are so cool because although they are individual colored rhinestones, they peel off in a strip making them SO easy to stick onto a small image like you see here. Silver and white cardstock is embossed with Cuttlebug folders and the rhinestone brads from Stampin' Up!
