Sending Cheer your way featuring Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!

I like being able to combine stamp sets to make them whatever I want, don't you?  So for this card, I took some of the embellishments and a sentiment from the fun #5192 Penguin Cheer Set along and added them to #5181 Mailbox Cubbies. It was fun stuffing all those mailboxes full of Holiday fun and then decorating them with lights and ornaments! On the paper scroll that comes with the mailboxes, I turned it into Santa's list by just writing on it with a super fine tip pen.

A Teenie Weenie hug featuring Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!

Today's card features one of the fun Twist Ties Sets #4987 Dog Twist Ties. Love these Weenie Dogs! LOL!  And the sentiment is perfect for this set!  Art Impressions makes it sooooo easy by selling sets of the Twist Tie Cards! The stamp set comes with the heart shaped die too! All I did was glue on my decorative paper on top of the Twist Tie Card, stamp the dogs onto the card, then die cut out around them.  For the dogs, I simply stamped them onto the cryogen white paper to color them, then cut them out and glued them on top of the stamped image on the decorative paper. Super easy!
