What a Bird Brain with Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans! 

Do you love plain and simple cards?  It doesn't get much simpler than this one!!  I used a scalloped circle die to make the card base, then used AI Double Stitched Circle Dies to make the layers. The stamp is from Spring Chicken Set and I colored her with Copic markers. 





Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and until next time - stay crafty!!

I wet my plants! With Art Impressions


Hello AI Fans!

My card today features #SC0650 His and Hers Gardeners. This set contains everything you would want for the favorite gardener in your life! The potted plants are separate stamps, as well as that cute little bee! I just set them up the way I wanted them on my stamp positioner, and stamped away! Added a few little clouds and voila!!

The sky's the limit with Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!! 

Today's card features SCO649 His and Hers Flying High Stamp Set. This was such a quick and easy card to make! I just grouped the images together on a stamp platform and then cut them out with a circle die. That's why I love Art Impressions stamps!

Art Impressions Challenge 259 Shaker Cards week two!

Hello AI Fans!!

It's week two of challenge# 259 Shaker Cards over at Art Impressions Blog! I had so much fun making this card! I don't know why I don't make more shakers! I grabbed 4858 Gator PopCard   (He's on sale right now!!!) for the feature image for the card.  All the PopCards can just be layered together for a super cute stamp set.  I just use mounting tape or pop dots on the different layers so it's very dimensional! On top of that, I put him on an Action Wobble, so it makes this card even MORE fun!! For the shaker window, I grabbed two of the Rounded Rectangle A2 Double Stitched dies and put them through the die cut machine together.  I then took the size that was between those two and cut out two clear windows from acetate. For the shaker part, I used Doodlebug Sequins in different colors, and for the sentiment, I used the Flip Card Dies!  




The Design Team really knocked this challenge out of the park in my opinion. So I sure hope you pop over to check out all their wonderful creations!! Thanks so much for stopping by today and until next time, stay crafty!!
