Stay fabulous and carry a big tumbler featuring brand new Art Impressions!!

 Hello AI Fans!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and celebrated all the wonderful Fathers in your life! I have a card today that features the adorable brand new set #5928 Stay Hydrated! How fabulous is she??!! I love that there are a lot of different skins you can use for your tumbler, and she is just amazing! LOVE her!! Because I used the paw print skin on the tumbler, I decided she needed a little fur baby beside her. So I grabbed the Dog House Cubbies and used the little pooch from that set. I made a simple little scene by making a sky using a cloud stencil and some Distress Oxide ink. Grabbed a piece of polka dotted paper to create the grass with a die from my stash, and then just plopped her on top! Voila! It really was a pretty quick card to make. The images are stamped onto Copic friendly paper using the Misti and then colored with markers which are listed below. 





Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today! Until next time - stay crafty!!

Seas the Day featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans! 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and it was full of fabulous weather! For those of you lucky enough to either live close enough to, or were able to visit the beach, I'm totally jealous! LOL! I had a fun time coloring up this colorful car from #5455 Birthday Buggy Set from the line of Rides at Art Impressions. And instead of using all the Birthday stamps that comes with it, I chose to grab #5509 Beach Accessories set. I might have given away my age by the way I colored it. LOL! Who remembers all the cute bugs around the 60's and 70's with flowers painted on them? I couldn't resist, so I grabbed #5739 as it had the perfect sized flowers for the car door. For the sentiment, I used #5399 Gull Friend Set. I started by stamping all the fun images onto Copic friendly paper and then colored them with Copic markers which are listed below. I created a beach scene by just grabbing some dies from my stash.

I'm here for the party featuring Art Impressions!

 Hello AI Fans!


Happy Memorial Day! If you're so inclined, I hope you  take a moment to say a prayer for all of our fallen soldiers that paid the ultimate price so that we may enjoy the freedoms that we cherish. I personally thank every one of them and their families for their service and sacrifice. 

My card today is a fun one featuring the adorable Llama Set. They are so dang fun, and they definitely look like they are here for the party! I stamped the fun image onto alcohol ink friendly paper and colored it with Copic markers which are listed below. I then cut it out using AI's Nested Circle Dies. The fun sentiment which fits them so well is from the Never Too Old Laugh Lines Set, and the fun confetti swirls are from the Harvest Journal Die Set. The links to all the sets I used are listed below. Just click on the picture of it and it will take you right to the AI shop! The sun and balloon dies are from my stash. I also added lots of Stickles, so it works for our current challenge, All That Glitters. 



  


That's it for me for today! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! Until next time - stay crafty!!

You Glow Girl! Featuring Art Impressions Matchbooks

 Hello AI Fans!

So do you love the Art Impressions Matchbook Sets? They are so cute and so tiny!! I just really love how you can tuck them into a lunch pail or a jacket pocket!! For my post today, I used 5498 MB Salon Set to create this adorable little card. How perfect to treat your stylist or to accompany a cute gift card to someone's favorite salon! I stamped the images onto alcohol ink friendly paper and colored them with Copic markers which are listed below. I also added the clock and lamp sconces from 5323 Matchbook Wall Accessories. I used some digital salon paper to create the wallpaper for the shop and the envelope. I also cut out some cute accessories using glitter paper and the adorable 5334 Salon Mini Die set.  



I added some clear Nuvo Crystal Drops to the front of the mirror. Unfortunately it dried making it look like the mirror was cracked. Sure hope I don't get seven years of bad luck! LOL! Look at that adorable bobby pin!!!

Never Too Old featuring Art Impressions Laugh Lines and Lawn Fawn Give it a Whirl die set

 Hello AI Fans!

I've got a fun interactive card to show you today that features a couple sets from the Art Impressions Laugh Lines. If you're not familiar with the Laugh Lines, they come with an amazing image along with a TON of great sentiments that match! I actually used two different sets for this card, and I put it together with a Give it a Whirl die set. FUN! Who doesn't love interactive cards!! This was actually the first time I've made one of these cards, and learned a few things that will help me a lot with my next one. But it really does go together quite easily. You just grab the tab and spin the image around and voila! There's a super short little video below the pics so you can see how it works. The images are stamped onto cryogen white paper with Memento ink and then colored with Copic markers which are listed below. 





You can see in the next picture I messed up my pearl drops trying to take pictures of the card. I was able to remove those and replace them without any problem. So it's all good now! :) 









Isn't that so much fun??!! I didn't line it up very well on the front, so I learned it's necessary to use a template to make sure it gets lined up correctly. But other than that, it was pretty easy to assemble and it works like a charm! So that's it for me today and until next time - stay crafty!!
