I Brake for Belly Dancers!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing the card that I made for my friend's birthday yesterday.

I used Belly Dancer Gracie from the Humorous Seniors Line.

The verse is from the very large set

I have used this set about a million times!


My friend has taken belly dancing classes for a few years now to help keep herself in shape.  We have added some classes to our 5th grade curriculum that are areas the kids were interested in that we don't normally teach in school.  My friend is teaching a belly dancing class to some of the girls...at a 5th grade appropriate level...lol...and I thought this card would be perfect for her.  All of the images and verses can be found at I Brake for Stamps.


I used Wink of Stella on her outfit to add some shimmer.

Warmest Winter Wishes!

Hello Ai fans!
Today I'm sharing another Christmas card.
I've used the new set 5193 – Woodland Holiday Set.

I love all of these adorable animals in this set.

I Brake for Stained Glass Irises!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a pretty, pastel card that I made using
Stained Glass Iris #2.


If you follow my IBFS posts at all, you'll know I'm fairly obsessed with their stained glass line.
On this piece I used some Nuvo clear drops to add some gloss to the iris.

I Brake for the Spotlight!

       Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I'm sharing a card made with one of the funny images from Carmen Medlin found over at I Brake for Stamps!

This one's called Spotlight.


He can be purchased individually or in the Curiosities Set 4.
Since he looks like he's dancing I decided to use some paper with music notes on it.  I also placed him in a "star-studded" frame.


I used the verse on the inside of the card.
You can find the entire line of Carmen Medlin stamps at IBFS.

Thankful from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a Thanksgiving card that I made using the set
5039 – Grateful Hearts Set

I love making holiday cards with less than traditional colors.  For some reason I immediately thought "yellow and polka dots" when I picked this set up this time.


I also used two of the Art Impressions Stitched Dies sets...


If you like making Fall themed cards then you should check out the other sets available at Art Impressions.

I used my Fantasia watercolor pencils to color them.

At least you don't need a cone!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing my mom's get well card.
She recently had surgery and I wanted to lighten the mood a bit. I think she enjoyed her card a lot.



For the sentiment I used 5134 – Banner Double Stitched Dies.


On the inside I used another sentiment and a few
of the smaller stamps from the set.


I made an alternate version to have on hand just in case.

Art Impressions Gardening Circlet Tag

Hello Ai fans!

It's the second week of the tags or ornaments challenge over at Art Impressions so I'm sharing what I made using the new 5172 – Gardening Circlet MTF.



These new Circlets are some of my favorites!  You can do so many different things with them.


I think at some point I want to create a sort of shadow box with these.
