Luigi Chalkboard counter decor from Art Impressions

Hello Ai Fans!
This is my second post today so please scroll down to see my other one too!
I guess I was in the mood to go masculine and to eat.  Then again, when am I NOT in the mood for food??

For this project I used Luigi (Sku#T2832).
He's from Art Impressions Bon Appetit line.
I don't think this line gets enough credit!  I have tons of these stamps and love them all.  Hey, it's not ALL about the girlfriends!! lol! (though I do so LOVE them too!)


I just love this robust little Italian guy!
I stamped him twice so that I could pop up the tray and bread. 


I found this adorable chalk board at Michael's (where you can also get Ai clear stamp sets)
and I just knew I had to turn it into something.  I thought it would make a great counter top decoration for a kitchen!  Chalk boards are very "in" right now and I don't think the whole food/wine/cheese theme EVER goes out of style.




The GRILLFATHER!!

Hello Ai Fans!

Today I'm sharing a fun, shaped card.
I love the Ai Heroes and was inspired by this guys chef hat.
The set is called The Grillfather.

I Brake For Mopeds!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Before you check out my card be sure to remember to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to get your IBFS coupon code.

Today I have a really fun birthday card to share with you.  My card features one of the Humorous Seniors from I Brake For Stamps.  She's called Moped Millie.


I haven't done a monochromatic card in a while and just got a new blue 6 x 6 pad I was excited to use.  I think blue suits her well.

On the inside I used Over The Hill and a
birthday verse from Every Day Phrases.


Here's a close up of her.  I dig her animal print pants!

Firefighter congratulations!

Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing a congratulatory card with you.
My friend's boyfriend's son is going to be graduating from the Firefighter Academy in a couple of weeks and she wanted a special card for him.  I only had very juvenile FF images so I had to get creative.


I went online and found the Fireman's Prayer and printed that out.  I found a metallic red ribbon to mimic some fire.  Then I used my Darice FLAMES embossing folder and the Cuttlebug DIAMOND PLATE folder.


The silver paper is Harley Davidson Diamond Plate Embossed paper and I used the Stampin' Up Slot punch and a Fastenator staple where I attached the red ribbon.

The fire hydrant is from Art Impressions and is part of the Pet Shoppe (Sku#3526) window set.
The Congratulations phrase is from I Brake For Stamps and it's from the Every Day Phrases sheet.

Copic colors:
RV00, RV34, R37, R85



My friend really liked the card.  I hope its recipient does too!

Fire Out Birthday Gift Bag

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a something extra fun with you!!  

I recently got a We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board and couldn't wait to use it!!
I figured it'd be perfect to make a birthday gift bag so I paired it with Art Impressions Ai People Fire Out Set 4371.  

I just love this image and verse!  


My bag measures 2 1/2" x 6".  You can adjust the height but not the width.  (at least the directions say you can't but I know some creative person out there will figure out a way to manipulate it!)

Copics used:
Y35, W1, W3, T5, B23, B24, B60, BG0000,
BG02, BG10, BG13, BG15, BG90, R22, R46,
RV29, E02, E35, E40, E50, E51, E93, E97

I Brake For Valerie's Birthday!

Hello and happy Saturday!!
Welcome to my I Brake For Stamps post for the week.
It's been rainy here lately so I wanted to make something bright and cheery to offset the dull gray outside.

Before you check out my card make sure you remember that I have a coupon code that you can use to save 10% off your IBFS order.  See the bottom of the post for the code and link.

Today I'm sharing a gift bag that I made for a co-worker.  We go back to school VERY soon. (insert big heaving sobs here) and her birthday is Sept. 25.  It's very crazy at the beginning of school so I thought I'd get ahead of the game and make this now.




I used my new We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag punch board to make this.  If you come back tomorrow you can see another bag that I made.  Tomorrow's is a little smaller than this one.  You can choose from 3 different widths of bags, small, medium and large as well as making it any height up to a 12" piece of paper.  This bag is about 8" tall.


Isn't this verse so funny and SO true?!
My little flower is from Wild Orchid.  It's a Champagne Pink Cosmo Daisy 10 pk.
