Easter Holiday Mansion

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing the Holiday Mansion set
along with the 4976 – HM Easter Set.

This Mansion is such a fun, interactive set with loads of accessories to make it even cuter!

When you open the doors and windows all sorts of surprises await!

Here's the inside of my green card.

I made another one, this time in pink.

I used a few different stamps and rearranged some of the Easter accessories on this one. 

Aren't these just the cutest!?

Antiques Window

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of Art Impressions Windows to the World.
This one's called Antiques Window.
You get a sneak peak of the old truck through the 4619 – Window Die.

I have a husband, 5 Brothers-in-law, a Father-in-law and a step-dad so I always like to have masculine cards on hand.  I've used this image before and I really love it.

I've done the truck in red, brown and this rust color and I think this one is my favorite.  I made the sky kind of dark and stormy.  How else did the truck get so rusty if it wasn't sitting out in the rain?

I brake for Bob's Birthday and Anchors!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Brother-in-Law's birthday card.  I have a TON of March birthdays in mine and my husband's family and need to get a jump start.  A bunch of them are southern "beach" people so I love nautical cards for them.

I've used the MS97 Full Plate from I Brake for Stamps for my card.

All of the die cuts are from Ellen Hutson and pair perfectly with this beautiful sheet of nautical images!

Here's the inside of the card.  I didn't stamp a birthday sentiment inside but I figured we could just write it in.  Bob lives on Hilton Head Island and this lighthouse reminded me of one we visited when we've gone to see them.

It seems ironic.  I don't like the beach due to my fair skin (previous bout with skin cancer) and my fear of things in the ocean.  Yet...if you asked me...nautical cards are one of my all time favorite cards to make and ocean creatures are some of my favorite animals on earth.  I don't know...go figure.

Love is in the Air!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a super sweet image from last Valentine's Day.
This set is called 4753 – In the Air Set.

I don't normally case cards and especially not for a DT post but I just fell in love with Mary's card and felt that layout would be perfect for Art Impressions sweet little skunk.

On the inside I used a verse from 4230 – Show the Love Set.

What special someone in YOUR life needs a card like this?

I Brake for Easter!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for two of my nieces.
I've used 3 images from I Brake for Stamps.

In case you're wondering about me using a wintery image on an Easter card I can explain... Although I know most of you out there consider Easter a Spring holiday there are many years our kids in upstate N.Y. have to put on their snow boots and trudge through several inches of snow to find their Easter eggs!  Of course I'll probably give this card to my nieces and this will be a year that it's 70 and sunny.  Not that that's anything to complain about!

This was Easter morning 2015 at my house.

Our chilly egg hunt at my sister's house.

I wanted the card to be very dimensional and appear like the bunny was on a hill behind her.  I love these soft colors with the sweet Chelsea Le image. I actually have a few of these sweet girls and they're always perfect for my sweet nieces.

Are you ready for a SWEET EASTER??

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm over on the Art Impressions Blog and I'm getting to feature a brand new Easter set for you.  The set is called Sweet Easter Set #5004. I've made three different cards and used every stamp from the set.  Hmmm...can you tell how cute I think it is??

On the inside I added some little tracks for the cute little chick with a fine point marker.

Don't you love that chubby little cutie?

On my second card I used the largest image in the set.  I just love this napping bunny.  Think of all the fun designs you could do on the pot.  I went traditional Terra cotta to pull in the colors from my designer paper.

On my last card I used the most stinking cute bunny popping out of an egg.  I accented the image with some of the adorable little decorated eggs in the set.

Here's the inside of my last card.  The frame actually comes blank and you can choose which sentiment you want to put inside of it.  It would probably be cute for little place cards at your Easter dinner as well!

Valentine Holiday Mansion

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a couple more Holiday Mansion cards with you.  These are featuring the 4977 – HM Valentine Set.  I decided to go pretty ornate with these.  After all, Valentine's Day only comes once a year right?

I love how the little doors and windows open and close.
I also love how you can rearrange the little accessories in any way you like. The possibilities are endless.

This is the inside of both cards. 

Here's my other version all in pink.

What surprises are hidden behind the doors??
Peek inside and see.

The little teddy is so cute!  And that weather vane!  And mailbox!!  As I said...the possibilities are endless.
