NEW!! Whisk It Set from Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!!

Today I'm sharing a really fun new set from Art Impressions Work and Play line.  This set is called Whisk It Set #5001!

I'm more of a cook than a baker but I love anything that puts me in the kitchen.  Except of course the dishes!!

Look what I did!!  I took the front of the oven and cut it out.  I then masked off the towel and stamped the bread to put inside of the oven.  I used a piece of acetate so that you could see the bread inside baking.  I drew in the rack since I didn't want the bread to be floating when you open the oven door.

All of the phrases that come with the set are so much fun.  On this inside I found some kitchen themed paper.  I stamped the cupcakes and oven mitts and place them in the "kitchen."  Life is what you bake it!

Sweet Easter from Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one final Easter card made with Art Impressions adorable new set called 5004 – Sweet Easter Set.

My card is very dimensional.  I popped up the little critters and then cut the front panel to fit over them. 

I used a couple more of the stamps from the set on the inside.

I Brake for Golf!

Hello and happy Saturday!

I have a card to share that's going into a basket for a benefit.  My husband's friend is battling cancer and there is a benefit coming up to help him.  We put together a golf themed basket with a box of Titleist balls, a GC for a local sporting goods store and 6 handmade golf cards made by me.

I've used GOLFING EDNA from I Brake for Stamps.

Today I'm sharing a golf card that I made for a raffle basket.

This is a retired set called Golf Nut from Cornish Heritage Farms.
I'll be sharing several other cards over the next few weeks.

I Brake for Bellatrix!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a super fun card with you.  I had a co-worker order a birthday card for her daughter's birthday.  She loves Harry Potter and especially Bellatrix Lestrange!  I couldn't wait to get started!

It never expires and can be used over and over again.

Her only request was that it say "for my daughter" even if I had to print it on my computer.  Then I remembered that I Brake for Stamps has almost that exact verse but PRETTY!  I used ...


The front has a cut out so you can see Bella on the inside.

When you open it you can see her Azkaban inmate # and her in all her black lace.

The photo is a little dull.  It was tough to capture all the different shades of black in a photo and create the bold real life image I could see. 

On the backside of the card I left an area for my friend to personalize the card for her daughter.

I tried to sketch her to look as much like Bellatrix as I could.  Truth be told... I think she looks a little like Roseann!  LOL!!  I know a lot of people who think she's pretty evil too so I guess it's all good.  Personally, I'm looking forward to the reboot of her show.

The mansion is a fun, interactive set with see through windows and doors that open.  There are so many possibilities.

Here's the inside of my card.

I made a second version here.

Don't you love the little 4967 – WC Fence Dies combined with this set?

I used an acrylic glaze over vellum on the windows to give them a more realistic glass look.
