Kangaroo Mouthfuls from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

My niece just turned 11!!
Happy Birthday Brynn!

As soon as I saw this sweet new 4947 – Kangaroo Mouthful Set set from Art Impressions I couldn't wait to make a card for her.  There are lots of accessories with this set and many different combinations you can try.  I chose the noise maker and the gift box. Both Mama and Joey are wearing a party hat.


This mom and joey are just the cutest combo!
Baby can fit in her pouch but I chose to use the gift in her pouch and put the little one beside her.


I used two verses from the set...one on the front and one inside.


I made a second version to have on hand just in case someone's birthday pops up that I forgot about.


Here's mama kanga with the gift outside of her pouch.

I Brake for Poppies

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that a coworker requested for her step-mom.  She wanted something pretty...just something to brighten her day.



I stamped the image on the printed paper and also on white cardstock.  I cut out the 3 main flowers from the white cardstock and popped them up on foam tape to give the card some dimension. I thought the border punch from Martha Stewart reminded me of one of those garden borders so I added that to my card.


Don't forget you can always SAVE 10% when you use my coupon code SAVE10RENEE.

It never expires and can be used over and over again at I Brake for Stamps.

Be Joyful Window from Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a sweet window card with you.
The window I used is 4749 – Window Deco Die.


When you open the window panes up you can see a sneak preview of what's inside...


Open them a little wider and there's kitty!
There are so many different Windows to the World to choose from.  Each time I use one I think that one's my favorite and then I use a different one and I love that even more!


I think to date I have 11 of the windows if I'm remembering correctly.
I can't wait to order some more!
Here is the inside of my card.


Do you have any of the WTTW?  
Which one is your favorite?

You're Ribbiting!

Hello Ai fans!
4954 – Toad Wiggle Wobble

This is my first post of the new year so I thought it would be fun to start out with something "Toadally Fabulous!"

You can see the little toad peeking out of the window on the front.


When you open it up she dances.
When I made her I didn't yet have the cute little bitty brads that Ai offers so I improvised.  You can find the tiny ones HERE. They come in white and silver.


Isn't she the cutest thing??


Here she is on her WOBBLE dancing.
Because I used the wrong brads she doesn't wiggle quite as much as she should but you get the idea.

I Brake for Babies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Happy 2018!
This is my first post of the new year for I Brake for Stamps and I figured what better way to start the new year than with a new baby card.




The cross spins around if you wind it up.


We have some friends whose daughters both had their first baby only a month apart.  Both girls... I doubled up on this card and gave them each the same one.


Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!

Winter Snowmen from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing my final Christmas card with you.  I got a last minute request from my friend at school for a card for her son's teacher so this is what I came up with.


The snowmen are meant to be on the inside of the card and they POP up when you open it.  I was pressed for time and decided to use them on the front with some 3-D foam tape.  I thought it turned out really nice like this.  I tend to "pop" up most of my images anyways and these little guys are already perfect for layering.


On this inside I used the tall snowman from the back of the group and a verse and little bird that also come with the set.

You can see the dimension on my card in this photo. They really come to life being layered like this.


Merry Christmas all!

Winter Snowmen from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a Christmas card with you that I didn't get around to posting before Christmas.  You know how busy things can get.  I got a last minute request from my friend at school for a card for her son's teacher.  I still needed to make one for my In Laws so I doubled up and just changed the color.  

This is the one I gave my In Laws.  I'll share the teacher's card tomorrow.
