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!
