Art Impressions new Stackers & Slider Die and week two of challenge #187 Slide on By

Hello AI Fans!!

It's week two of the new Slide On By Challenge at Art Impressions. We're featuring the adorable new Stackers and they are SO CUTE!!  Today I'm showing you a card I made using the Dog Stackers #4740 and the new Slider Die #4764.

I used the Silhouette Cameo to create the dog house shaped card! I LOVE using my Silhouette for shaped cards!! It takes a little bit of work to get it all together with matted layers and such, but I believe it's totally worth it! After creating the card base with the fun papers, I cut a wavy arrow to point to the pull tab on the slider! For the final finishing touch, I added some wooden heart buttons tied up with some twine. Please be sure to visit the Art Impressions blog to check out all the amazing creations by the design team, and then hope you take advantage of having one more week to play along with us for a chance to win some amazing prizes!!! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have lots of time this weekend to get crafty!!

New Turtle Stackers and Slider Die from Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!!

Today I'm showing you another one of the new AI Stackers! They are so fun!! This card features the adorable Turtle Stackers
I also used the brand new Slider Die to hide the Stacker until you pull the panel down. I just punched a circle out of the panel so the top turtle could peek out at the recipient!
