Well duh!! Featuring Art Impressions Crown Set

 Hello AI Fans! 

There's a new challenge over at the Art Impressions Blog that is asking for diamonds and/or pearls. How fun is that??!!  The card I'm showing you today fits right in with that challenge. I used #4370 Crown Set. I stamped her onto Cryogen white paper and then colored her up with Copic markers. She's a fun one to color and she just looks like she'd be dripping in diamonds and pearls, doesn't she? 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope to see your entry in the diamonds and pearls challenge!!

Windows to the World from Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

Can I have all the Windows to the World fans raise their arms? Woah! I felt that gush of wind all the way in Reno!  So if you have a collection of Windows to the World stamps and are looking for something else to do with them, you can stop right here.  Bonnie came out with a Shadow Box Window Die Set that works with every single Windows to the World stamp you have! Every single one! I don't know about you, but I absolutely love shadow boxes!! So I took one of my WTTW stamps that I had to have cause it reminds me of my little Shih Tzu, M4584 Day Spent WTTW.  I stamped it onto Cyrogen White paper and colored it with Copic markers. Then used the Shadow Box Window Die Set to cut it out.  It actually cuts out the stamp leaving the sentiment surrounding the image behind. I love how it looks!!  There are new stamp sets that go with the new die set that contains an extra image, but it also works with all your old WTTW images too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope you have a great week!

Happy Halloween featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

Happy Halloween!! I have one more Halloween card for you today! Have you heard that Art Impressions has come out with two brand new paper packs??!! And the papers are gorgeous! There is #5606 Harvest Journal Paper Pack, and the one I used here, #5605 Halloween Journal Paper Pack. Along with the adorable #5506 Peek-a-Boo Set and Halloween paper pack, I used #5462 Spider Web Dies,  #5456 Spooky Wagon Set for the adorable spider and the Booo sign, #5133 Flag Double Stitched Dies,  And #5543 Journal Template Die Set for the scalloped edge mat under the star paper. This card was also created for the current masking or stencil challenge that is going on over at Art Impressions Blog! When you use the masking technique, It's always so fun when you pull the masks off to see the finished scene! I stamped all the images onto Cryogen White paper and colored them with Copic markers. I used my Viva Decor Pearl Pens to finish the spider webs off with just a small dot at the ends of the points. I used black, purple, and orange. 

I wanted the spider to look like he was dropping down from the web above, so just used my black Copic Multiliner to draw a line from him up to the top of the panel. 

Here is the stamped images on top of the masked off jack-o-lanterns and Booo sign. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope you have a spooktacular Halloween!!

 Hello AI Fans!!

Well Fall is definitely in the air here in Reno! I just came back inside from filling my bird feeders and thank goodness the fireplace was going! BRRR!!! LOL! We are getting a high of 50 degrees today, and it's a little cloudy too. So I just had to feature these beautiful Girlfriends all dressed up in their fall clothes. I used #5516 Friends Forever Set from the AI Girlfriends line of stamps. I stamped them onto Cryogen White paper and colored them up with Copic markers. Hello Fall!! 

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're able to get crafty today!

Art Impressions Hats Off Mr Set

Hello AI Fans!

My card today is for the Let's Hear it for the Boys challenge! I will admit I am terrible at masculine cards! I'm too big of a buttons and bows girl! LOL! So I kept my card super simple and just used the adorable #5406 Mr. Set from the Hats Off line at Art Impressions. I loved that Trapper hat and just had to use it with the Stay Cool sentiment! I added a strip of die cut grass and used a cloud stencil for the sky. Can't get much simpler than that! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a great day!

Harvest Together Stamp Set from Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!!

I've got a card today that fits in with the It's Fall Y'all Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog! My favorite colors are the bright, cheery colors of summer. But there's just something about the beautiful colors of fall that call to me when September hits. I made a super simple card using this adorable scarecrow from #5507 Harvest Together Set from Art Impressions. These are the cutest scarecrows I've ever seen! They are NOT going to scare away anything! :)  For the trees, I used an old tree die and some fall patterned paper along with grassy hill die cuts. Hmmm...just had a thought that I should have put some apples on one or more of the trees. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

New Front Porch Harvest Set from Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

How many of you are in love with the Front Porch Series from Art Impressions? I know I've got my hand raised! This series makes truly beautiful cards! For my card today, I used the brand new Front Porch Harvest Set. I stamped the images onto Cryogen white paper and colored them with Copic markers. I also used quite a bit of mounting tape for dimension. I have always loved fall with it's beautiful colors and crispness in the air. This card would also fit the Woodn't it be Nice challenge that's going on right now over on the blog. Have you entered yet?? 

So what is fall without a big pile of leaves in your front yard? This set has a wonderful image of a few leaves clustered together. So I just stamped a number of them and piled them up in front of the porch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have a crafty day!
