Happy Easter featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

I've got a card to show you today that features the adorable #5504 Happy Spring Set. This is the absolute cutest stamp set! I know, I say that all the time. But it's true!! LOL! I stamped these cuties onto Cryogen white paper and then colored them with Copic markers.  The dies to this set are amazing! I love it when they cut close and don't have a big white border around them. I also used #5728 Mushroom Cubbies for that adorable caterpillar, and #5486 Front Porch Garden Set for that cute pot of flowers. I love mixing and matching all my sets to create a card! The sun and cloud die are just from my stash.  My card fits the Inside Out challenge over on the blog. Hope you're entering so you have a chance to win an awesome prize! 

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

Front and Back Bunny Set from Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!!

Is it starting to feel like Spring in your neck of the woods?  If it is, would you PLEASE send some my way?? LOL!  We woke up to more snow on Saturday morning! I'm trying to bring more Spring our way by making this fun easel card featuring 5792 Front and Back Bunny which is a new release at Art Impressions. Isn't he the cutest??!! I also used 5719 FB Fence and Window Set and 5723 Journal Cover and Bookmark dies. I sandwiched the fence die in between two of those beautiful frames from 5543 Journal Template Die Set. The sentiment is from 5733 Easter Sentiments Set.  I stamped this cutie onto Cryogen white paper and colored him with Copic markers which are listed below. I decided I wanted to make an easel card so you can see both the front and back of this cute little guy!  I really love how all the Journal dies work perfectly when making cards too!!  

So you just stand up the top of the card and the Happy Easter sentiment keeps the card standing for display. 

And this is how it looks when you have it on display. 

This is what it looks like when it's all closed up.  It folds flat for mailing or storing. I had to stand it on its edge to grab a picture, so it looks like it's poking out a bit in the middle. It doesn't look like that when it's laying flat.

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

Peek a Boo pop up card featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!!

Have you created your card or project for the Green Galore Challenge?  Today, I'm showing you the card I made using #5283 Frog Set from the Funny Farm line at Art Impressions.  This Frog Set is so much fun to play with! I got a  peek a boo pop up die set in January, and I've been wanting to use it. I think interactive cards are my favorite because they make a handmade card so fun! I've always leaned toward bright colors and fun or funny cards. They just make my heart smile!! So that's what I set out to do. There is the cutest leaping frog in this set and I knew exactly how I wanted to use him.  Take a peek at this video and make sure to listen with sound! LOL!  We definitely have a photo bomber on our hands!! heehee 

These cards are really pretty easy to make and there will be a link to the peek a boo pop up die in the LinkDeli list below. So for my card, I just cut a piece of blue and a piece of green cardstock and then used a hillside die to cute the green piece.  I stamped the Frog Set with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and colored them with Copic markers and then fussy cut them out. and glued the party of three to the front of the card. I then cut serveral fence pieces out of white paper and glued them along the top of the green cardstock on the card front. To finish it up, I cut the sun and clouds, and used some images from #5561 Birds and Bugs Set to finish it off. This was s super fun card to make and I really hope the recipient enjoys it as much as I do! 

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

Don't you love this time of year when Art Impressions is revealing all their new sets?!  It's so much fun!! Today I'm showing you the brand new #5730 Cat Matchbook Set. If you haven't tried the Matchbooks yet, I don't know what you're waiting for! They are so cute and you can tuck them anywhere!! Slip one into a jacket pocket. Tuck one into a lunch box. Hide one behind the salt shaker in the cabinet. They are so little, you can hide them anywhere! I will say that when Bonnie presented these during her Water Color Wednesday video, she gave us a tidbit stating that dog lovers has their own Matchbook Set coming!! How exciting!  All of the images were stamped onto Cryogen white paper and colored with Copic markers.

Live life in full bloom featuring Art Impressions Easter Chicks Set

 Hello AI Fans!!

Today I'm showing you the card I created with the Bloom Where you are Planted challenge going on right now. I love this challenge as it's reminding me that spring is getting closer every single day! YAY!! So for this card, I used #5401 Easter Chicks Set which I am so in love with! These are the cutest chicks EVER!! And this set comes with the most adorable hats, bunny ears, and ribbons you can put on their heads to dress them up for Easter or any occasion! Or you can just leave them plain. It's completely your choice!! I also used #5588 Journal Oval Frames Die Set for the sentiment banner and those cute little flowers on the front of the platform. The cute sentiment was stamped using the brand new #5734 Friend Sentiment Set.  And then in the back, I used #4967 WC Fence Dies. I think that fence is so adorable in front of the trees. The trees, cloud, and grass dies are from my stash.   I stamped the images onto Cryogen white paper using my Misti stamp platform and then cut them out using the dies which are included in the set. I don't know about you, but I really love the fact that a lot of Art Impressions Sets include the dies. It makes it soooo much easier than having to fussy cut! 

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

Interactive card with magnetic pieces featuring Art Impressions Castle Cubbies Set!

 Hello AI Fans!

The card I'm showing you today was made for my granddaughter for her 4th birthday. This was so much fun to make! I used #5225 Castle Cubbies. I took inspiration from one of my very talented besties, Dori Mendiola, and made the castle and accessories magnetic so she can play with it on the fridge or anything else a magnet will stick to! Isn't that so fun?! I just used some magnet sheets that I bought from Amazon and the dies cut right through them. The magnet sheet had a sticky backing, so I peeled it off and stuck the pieces to my card base. Now in order to make the pieces stick to the fridge (and to the card) and not repel from it, I had to actually turn the magnet sheet over to cut out all the pieces that would stick to the images that I colored and cut out! Which ended up perfect cause then I just peeled off the sticky backing of the magnet sheet and attached to all the individual colored and die cut pieces! So fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! If you have any questions about how I made this card, just leave a comment with how to contact you and I'll get in touch. Until next time - stay crafty!!
