You light up the room featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

Today I'm showing you a card I made that fits the Dynamic Duo challenge that is going on right now over on the Art Impressions Blog! Have you entered yet? You still have time!  You just need to use two different stamp sets to create your card or project. For my card, I used #4371 Fire Out Set. I have always loved this set and have used her a number of times for some fun birthday cards. I also used #5255 Birthday Cake Set, and #5115 Birthday Laugh Lines for the sentiment. I stamped them onto Cryogen white paper and colored them with Copic markers. I kept the card super simple by just fussy cutting them out and adding a frame of some fun polka dot paper. 

Thanks for stopping by to visit today and hope you get to have a crafty day!

I have a prescription featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

Hope you're having an awesome start to your week! My card today features #4899 Proud Nurse Set from the Work and Play line at Art Impressions! There are so many wonderful stamp sets in this line! Be sure to pop over to Art Impressions and check them out! I stamped her onto Cryogen White paper which has a very subtle hint of glitter in it from Mica that is added to the paper. When I say subtle, I have to hold it up to my Ott light and move it around at different angles to make sure I've got the correct paper. However sometimes it can show up in your pictures if you use a flash.  I just love how the markers take to the paper. I then colored her up with Copic markers which are listed below. 

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

"At least I wore a cardigan!" featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

I'm here with you today to show you the card I created for the Pretty in Pink challenge going on right now on Art Impressions Blog.  I don't know if any of you watch Tik Tok, but a while back, I saw a video where some friends thought it would be really funny to dress up their husbands in matching shirts for a party (without the men knowing about it of course). So while I was thinking about what I wanted to create, I came across my #4474 Old Guys Club Set and the light bulb came on! I just love the grumpy look on these guys, so I thought I might as well give them something to be grumpy about, right? LOL!  I stamped the image onto Cryogen white paper and then colored them us using Copic markers. I made the card super simple by using the largest #5062 Rounded Rectangle Double Stitched Die set.  I simply folded my cardstock in half and then placed the top of the die just above the seam of the fold and ran it through my die cut machine.  Voila - a folded shaped card!  I always cut another full piece of either the same cardstock or the patterned paper I want to use and glue it to the front of the card base.  Doing that hides that flat fold that doesn't have stitching. Then I used the next size down to cut out my image panel. The sentiments were created with my computer and then cut out with some word bubble dies from my stash.   

Hope I gave you a little chuckle today! Sometimes we need that on Monday! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a crafty day!

Happy Halloween featuring Art Impressions Peek-a-Boo Set!!

 Hello AI Fans!!

So I'm sure you've seen the adorable new sets just released by Art Impressions! Today I'm showing you the oh so cute Peek-a-Boo Set #5506!! These are the cutest little Halloween characters ever!! I also added one of the little ghosts from 4927 Holiday Mansion accessory set which contains both Halloween and Christmas images! These were all stamped onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers which are listed below. I love coloring little Draculas with a white face.  In order to accomplish that, I leave the face uncolored and then used a warm gray marker to create some shadows. I also added pale pink cheeks and think it gives them a true vampire look.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon!

High Maintenance featuring Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!

My card today features 5405 Mrs. Set from the Hats Off line at Art Impressions! She's so fun and comes with a bunch of different hats you can dress her up with. I used the fun hair in curlers. How many of you are old enough to remember wearing curlers? LOL! (my hand is definitely raised) I stamped her onto some Cryogen White paper and then colored her up with Copic markers. I added one of the sentiments included in the set to the middle circle of the background die. 

 Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today and hope to see you again soon!
