I'm here for the Booos!! Old Bat Set from Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!!! 

Today I made a super fun decoration for Halloween! This would be so awesome to hang by a bar if you have one!  I used the brand new Old Bat Set!!! FUN!!!  I picked this frame up at Michael's and didn't have to do a thing to it. It was already distressed perfectly for a Halloween decoration. I simply added a scalloped edge, some bats, and sentiment frame, all of them cut with the Silhouette. I stamped her on Cryogen white paper and colored her with Copic markers, then just fussy cut her out with my scissors. I popped her up from the background with mounting tape. 

I cut a small piece of white paper to adhere behind the bat's eyes so they would stand out. 

Do you love this sentiment as much as I do??

and I finished it off by adding a big silk bow centered with a green button to pull the green out of her. Oh gosh, you can really see my lack of fussy cutting skills in this closeup. UGH! It was pretty rough trying to get the inside of that chair with a clean cut. 

So that's it for me today! Hope you're joining the Too Cute to Spook Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!

You spin me right round with Art Impressions Spinners!

Hello AI Fans!

My card today features one of the awesome AI Spinners called Love Spinner #4571 with the matching dies which makes it sooooo much easier to cut this adorable couple out!  I wanted to do something a little different than my normal bright colors. So for this card, I only used my cool grey Copics and colored them in black and white using black and white pattern paper. Taking pictures of the cool greys drives me crazy cause the blue tones in the grey really come out in the picture and it no longer looks to be black and white. They don't look this blue in person. 

Copics used: C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!!
