Happy Thanksgiving!

I cannot believe it is Thanksgiving already tomorrow!  I have my turkey sitting in a brine in the fridge and I am ready for the cooking frenzy to begin.

I know the holidays are hectic, which is why I am offering my customers a “Holiday Helper”.  I did this last year and a lot of people really loved it!  If you would like to receive my emails, please email me at BrookeStamps@gmail.com and I will add you to the list.



Card: PPA166 – Pals Paper Arts Challenge

I have never participated in a Pals Paper Arts challenge before, but I really wanted to try it out when I saw this color combination!



I really love these colors together, so last night I got to work, and this is what I came up with.



I’m not usually a “bling” type of girl, but I thought this card was screaming for a little sparkle!  Note the Silver Sparkle dazzling details around the smaller pennant.

Card: Simple Butterfly

Simple Butterfly


Simple.  Beautiful.  Stunning.

I have fallen in love with this Swallowtail butterfly stamp.  Seriously, this handmade card is amazing and SO simple to make!

I used Staz On ink to stamp the butterfly, and put a little pearl on his body for some effect.  The sentiment came from the Petite Pairs set.

Simple Butterfly inside


This inside is a perfect compliment to the front of the card.  Simple and stunning.

I made this card for my Stamp Club.  If you would like to be a part of my monthly Stamp Club, please contact me for more details!

Card: Worth the Wait

I absolutely love the colors and simplicity of this card!  The colors used are Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black and Whisper White.  The cherry came from the stamp set Button Buddies (122737).  Instead of using buttons as the cherry (which you can do if you choose!), I just colored in the cherry with Real Red (100052) and Old Olive (100079) markers.  The star paper came from the Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper pack (122348).  I stamped “So worth the wait” in Real Red, Old Olive and Basic Black (100082) markers and it comes from the stamp set Word Play (120651).
