I Brake For Stamps - BLOG HOP!!!

Welcome to the first ever I Brake For Stamps Blog Hop!!  

Today, we are hopping in honor of a BRAND NEW release from Rick St. Dennis.  These Rick St. Dennis Exclusive stamps are now available in the I Brake For Stamps store!  

If you haven’t started the hop from the I Brake For Stamps blog, you’re going to want to do so.  We are offering a $15 IBFS Gift Certificate to a random hopper.  In order to qualify, you must leave a comment on each designer’s blog including the IBFS blog.  Tell us which bear is your favorite AND anything else that might make our crafty hearts smile J 

You should have come here from the uber talented Robyn Correa.  Don't you just love her creations?? I know I do!  

I am super exited to join today's blog hop and these wonderfully talented women.  Thanks so much for letting me play along...onto my project and the deets!!

Don't you just love this cute little skating bear!!!  I was so excited to color her with my copics.  I think it will be valentines card for my Niece, she will love it.

I got to try out my new copic coloring skills for "fur" that I learned recently on my color me creative group classroom.  I used E59, E25, E33, E31, R85, R83, R81, B14, B02, B01, B0000, C02, C01, C00.  It's hard to tell but I used my sakura gelly roll clear star pen on her pom poms and skates for a little bling bling!  The background is a technique from the technique junkies newsletter called background whimsy - copic method.  I used the same copics that I used on her outfit.  The background stamp is from Impression Obsession.  I highlighted with my Sharpie White poster paint pen.

So enough about me, last stop on your tour is with the extremely talented Jane Bosi.  Thanks for joining us and GOOD LUCK!  Happy Crafting....
