Sending love featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans! 

My card today is showing you how I used the Sending Love Cubbies, and I really love how this one turned out. I don't know how many of you are old enough to remember there used to be mail boxes all over town. It's one of those things that just slowly disappear, kind of like telephone booths. LOL! I'm really dating myself! Anyway, I wanted to show this fun mailbox just absolutely overflowing with joy for the birthday recipient! So I just stamped, colored, and die cut a whole bunch of the accessory stamps that come in this set. I also added a few little birds from the Birdhouse Cubbies Set that are delivering more goodies. 

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

Home is where you park it! featuring Art Impressions stamps

Hello AI Fans!!

What's your favorite vacation? Do you love traveling and taking advantage of every minute running around and doing everything you possible can? Or are you like me...give me a lawn chair with a cocktail and some great music. I could sit there until the cows come home. LOL! For my card, I used #5187 Happy Trails Set and #5543 Journal Template Die Set for the sentiment. I stamped them onto Cryogen white paper and colored them with Copic markers which are listed below. If you haven't joined our V is for Vacation Challenge yet, I hope you do! 

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

Happy Birthday Bonnie Krebs, owner and artist of Art Impressions Stamps!!

 Hello AI Fans!!

Today is our Queen Bee Bonnie's Birthday!! I know how much she is loved and cherished by all, so I feel VERY fortunate that it's my day to post. Bonnie, I know I speak for all when I tell you that we wish you the very best Birthday and hope your day is filled with love and laughter with friends and family! Thank you so much for enriching all of our lives and blessing us with your amazing talents! God bless you and we love you!!

The card I'm showing you today is one I made for Bonnie (I hope she's received it by now) and for the current challenge we've got going on right here on the AI blog! I used the fabulous #5042 Christmas Bee Set, but I used some Post It Tape to mask out her stocking cap and tried my best to turn it into a Birthday hat. You can see I'm definitely not an artist! LOL!  I also cut my little bee away from the word merry and the bow so I could use it by itself. This helps extend the uses of your stamps because you can always stamp them together again if you want! I love that there's so many stamps in this set you can use for occasions other than Christmas! I loved the little quote I added on the bottom right side of the card. It was in the paper I used and thought it was so fitting for Bonnie!  I stamped my images onto Cryogen white paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored them with Copic markers which are listed below. 


And this is the inside of the card. 

Thank you so very much for stopping by today, and please be sure to wish Bonnie a very Happy Birthday today! Until next time - stay crafty!

Wanna Play Around featuring Art Impressions

 Happy July AI Fans!

The year seems to be flying by! Today I have a fun card featuring #4902 Par-Tee Golfers Set. I stamped her onto Cryogen white paper and colored her with Copic markers which are listed below.  I also used the pin which is an accessory stamp in this set. I thought the digital question mark paper was perfect for this card, so matted it with some red cardstock.  A super simple card! 

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