I Brake for Lighthouse Shakers!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a thank you card that I made using
MS97 Full Plate.

I Brake for Stamps has many beautiful nautical images (and I own most of them) but I think this sheet is my favorite!

There are so many gorgeous images on this sheet. 
I've many of them several times.

My daughter just had her high school graduation and two days later she turned 18.  Her best friend's dad and girlfriend took her out to dinner for graduation, cooked her her favorite meal that they make for her birthday, gave her a beautiful necklace and a generous cash gift.

They also invited her to go to Myrtle Beach with them.  She wasn't able to tag along on the vacation due to the fact that she was a featured artist at a local art gallery that week.  I decided to make their card with a nautical theme.

I printed a verse on my computer to thank them.

I Brake for More Birds!

A happy hello from designer, Heidi!  Hope you are doing well and have had some time for stamping recently!  This week, I have another lovely bird stamp to showcase for you from Sheet 141A - Birds.  The stamp is so detailed, it was easy to color.  

I used a coordinating patterned paper to stamp the sentiment on.  I think this is a cute saying to send to a good friend who really gets you.  

You can find this stamp set at the I Brake for Stamps store!  Have a great day!

I Brake for Happy Birthdays!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made using a set that I just received 
and what a fun set it is!!

I don't have anyone in mind for this card yet but I always like to have a few birthday cards lying around just in case.

On the inside I used the music notes from the set and a verse from an old, retired set that I've had for years.

I Brake for Birds...

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  This is a fun post because I really do brake for birds.  I am a bit of a birder (aka birdwatcher) so I naturally am drawn to wonderful bird stamps like this.

I colored my birds with alcohol markers to resemble an American Robin.  These birds strike me as being fledglings about to leave the nest for good.

I was listening to a birding podcast the other day and they said that there are really only a few weeks of summer for birds.  The entire breeding season is their Spring and then migration starts in late July for some birds, so they don’t get much rest!

I stamped the branch ink light beige ink onto vanilla cardstock for the background.  After die cutting, I added the sentiment tag on with a brad and popped the center panel up on fun foam.  

Thank you for your visit to the I Brake for Stamps blog.  Come back often for more inspiration from the team.
