I Brake for One More Flower...

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  I would like to share a card today using a combination of stamps from different sets.  I started out knowing that I wanted to make a card using a dark card base and I knew what basic layout I was going to use.


I first stamped the lattice stamp from the Bubble Wrap, Lattice and Flowers sheet on kraft cardstock and used gold embossing powder.  This stamp is about ATC sized, so it is a nice starting point for a card layout.  I then stamped and colored flowers from the Floral Half Sheet set.  I started with two, and then kept stamping “just one more” and adding it to the card until I had five flowers total.  I added a few little sequins to add some extra shine to the card.  The Hello sentiment was also heat embossed in gold.




Thanks for stopping by!  Know that the I Brake for Stamps store is always open, and that we will be back soon with more stamping inspiration from the design team.  Have a crafty day!

I Brake for October’s Flower of the Month!

Hello from design team member, Heidi.  October’s Birth Flower is the Calendula.  This is also called the English Marigold and comes in shades of yellow, orange and peach.  It is a really pretty flower, and goes well with fall colors.



I colored the flower with alcohol markers and fussy cut it out. I paired it with a lovely plaid paper and added a birthday sentiment to finish off the card.  

This stamp is available in the regular size, that I used, and a jumbo size!  They both can be found HERE.  The birthday sentiment is part of this great sentiment set.  



Thanks for visiting today!  Happy Crafting!

I Brake for Florals!


Hello from design team member, Heidi!  I never get enough of floral stamps!  I really like the style of these ones from the Floral Half Sheet - I used two of the stamps from that set in my card. 

I did do some simple masking over the smaller stamp before I stamped the tulip pot.  I then colored it in with alcohol markers before composing this layout with patterned papers.  



Do remember that the I Brake for Stamps store is always open - they have over 3000 images. Please come back again soon to see more inspiration from the design team!

I Brake for Lions!

Hello from designer, Heidi!  If you are looking for a stamp that makes a statement all on its own, you might be interested in the Lion Face stamp I am using today.  I enjoyed making this card so much, this stamp has amazing detail that stamps so easily!


I first made a loose watercolor background.  I stamped the lion right over it and hand cut it out.  I had this cool paper from a camping patterned paper pack that it happened to coordinate perfectly.  I thought this sentiment circle, from this sentiment set, looked like something that might be stamped onto a box for your safari trip - so that worked out great, too.  


If you like this style of stamp, also check out the coordinating Prowling Cougar & Bear Square stamps!   The I Brake for Stamps store is always open for your to browse!

I Brake for Morning Glories!

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  Did you know that one of the September Birth Flowers is Morning Glory?  It makes sense to me, as you see them blooming in late August and through September where I live.  They are one of my favorite flowers, they are so showy!


I used the Morning Glories Border stamp on my card.  I stamped it twice and colored it with alcohol markers, adding Nuvo Glitter drops to the centers.   I hand cut them on one side then applied them over my blue cardfront, already stamped with the Rising of the Sun sentiment.  I then trimmed off the excess white cardstock on either side.

I had practiced my coloring on another image first, so I cut one of those flowers out and added it as a little embellishment. 


Thanks for visiting the I Brake for Stamps blog!  Come back often to see what the entire design team is up to!  The store is always open!

I Brake for Dragonflies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made using the beautiful image from I Brake for Stamps called Dragonfly Stained Glass Large.



I completely hooked on the stained glass series.
This is one of my newest additions to my collection.
I used Stickles on the wings to give them shimmer like a real dragonfly.


For now the inside is blank because I didn't need it for any special event.  Who knows...it may wind up a birthday card, get well, sympathy...maybe just a "hello" I miss you.

I Brake for Clueless!


Hello from design team member, Heidi.  I have a funny card to share today.  I really did laugh out loud when I saw the sentiment in this set called Clueless.


I found a card on Pinterest with a fun way to use up scraps. I altered this layout to work for my stamped image and using an embossing folder for the kraft background.  I actually had so much fun coloring this stamp, I just can’t wait to color it again in different ways.  


Hope you have time for stamping today!
