I Brake for Birthdays and BINGO!!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing the card that I made my niece for her birthday.
She will be 12 in January. I'm getting a jump start!

I used the adorable 


I love bees and I've had this bee die from Sizzix for just about forever!


I drew in the "B 12" on the heart that I added.
Although you can't see it there is Wink of Stella on the bees transparent wings.  I really pretty in person.

I Brake for Sweater Weather!

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  I wanted to share a card today that is inspired by chilly evenings.


I first created a background with Distress inks which I smooshed on my craft mat and added water. I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans and I smooshed my paper into the pool of ink, drying in between layers. I had a scrap of card in my pile, which I think was mixed media paper, so it gave a different look than I would have gotten with watercolor paper.

I then stamped the Trees Background stamp over this with black Versafine Ink.  Finally, I cut a strip of white vellum and added a glitter sticker sentiment over top.


Thank you for visiting today! Hope you have time for stamping today and remember that the I Brake for Stamps store is always open.

I Brake for 61st anniversaries!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing the anniversary card that I made for my In-Laws.

I used two stamps from I Brake for Stamps on my card. One is an image and one is a sentiment.




Anyone who follows me at knows
how much I love the stained glass line at IBFS!

The pretty numbers are from Spellbinders.


Here's the inside with the verse from IBFS.

Can you IMAGINE being married for 61 years??
My husband and I just hit 23 last weekend and that blows my mind.

I Brake for Turtles!

Hello again, from design team member, Heidi!  I am using this adorable turtle stamp set today.


I colored the turtle with alcohol markers and trimmed it out.  I attached a little cupcake charm under his flipper with a brad, so it can turn and move freely.  I decided to use some fun water themed patterned paper for the background and stamped the sentiment right on it.  I used fun dots repeated both in the card front and the ribbon.  



Hope you have a wonderful day, and hopefully with some time for stamping squeezed in!  The I Brake for Stamps store is always open for you!
