I Brake For….Heart Quilt!

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday with I Brake For Stamps!  Now that we are done with Christmas and New Years celebration, the next holiday on the horizon is Valentine’s Day.  You are already seeing hearts and flowers all over the place, but how about a nice warm quilt?


The stamp is called Heart Quilt and can be found here.  

I love the homespun look of the image.  And while I used it for a Valentine’s Day card here, I can see this being used for a wedding card, or even a birthday card for a quilt maker.  My sister makes quilts and this image would be perfect for a card for here.

The color scheme possibilities are endless here.  I pulled out an old pad of Basic Grey paper that I love and used it as the inspiration for the colors of the quilt.  The pinks and reds work well for a valentine, and the touch of green softens it up.  I can see this done in a red, white and blue palette for patriotic days and how about a crisp red and white for Christmas?

Hope on over to the IBFS store – there are many love/valentine themed stamps for you to choose from.   I know you will find something there to your liking! Use code SAVE10NANCY and save 10% off your order.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Sisterhood Of Crafters challenge

Happy New year everyone!  Today starts the first 2018 challenge at the Sisterhood Of Crafters Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is Frames!  Put on your crafting hats and let’s see what  you can do!  All the details are here:

Here is my card:

An unusual one for me, no stamps were used, only dies.  I made a wintery scene and framed it out with stitched rectangle dies.    Are you all tired of the bitter cold weather we are having?  Even here in Florida we experienced the cold – temperatures in the 20’s at night and even had SNOW!! I hop it warms up soon!

Another first for me is that this is the first Christmas card for the 2018 holiday season – At this rate I won’t be scrambling in November to finish my holiday cards!

Thanks for playing along with us!
