New Christmas Reindeer PopCard from Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I'm sharing a sweet new PopCard from Art Impressions.
This one is called Reindeer PopCard.


The reindeer goes on the inside of the card and you can see him through the window on the front of the card.


Isn't he cute?!
He's peeking through 4619 – Window Die.


When you open the card he springs to life popping up to make a 3-D deer.


Here you can see just how much he "pops."
Don't you love that glittery nose?  I used a Red Fusible Glitter Sheet.


Don't forget to check out all the other DT members cards.  Some have featured new PopCards and some feature some new Girlfriends.

Holiday Mansion winter scene

Hello Ai fans!
Today I'm sharing the Art Impressions Holiday Mansion and HM Accessories.
I also used the Ai Snowflake Dies.


I fell in love with Diane's idea to use a tea light behind the mansion and just had to give it a try.
Since she made a Halloween card I thought I'd make a Christmas version.
You can see her card I was inspired by HERE.



I used an acetate card base so that the tea light would glow more.  I liked feeling like the house was set in it's yard and you could see the front and back yards making it more dimensional.

Open the front door and you see the verse.


Here's the inside.


I also made a coordinating gift box with some more of the HM Accessories.



One little pointer if you decide to try something like this. I wanted the house to be all silver because I thought it was festive.  You can't see the lines enough for them to matter but you can see them enough to bug me...Next time I'll probably stamp the image on cardstock first.  Then I'll cut it out and use it as a template to cut out the specialty paper.

Happy Christmas from Santa Paws!! New set from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a set of tags to hang on a doorknob. (or on the wall)
I've used the new 4937 – Santa Paws Set from Art Impressions.


I've had some wood spools lying around that I've been wanting to use for something and I thought they'd be perfect for this project.  I just spray painted them white and wrapped some designer paper around them.


Wouldn't something like this be adorable hanging on all the knobs in your house?

This little pug cracks me up!



Copics used:
E31, E33, E41, R12 R27, YG03, G24

I have two dogs and I don't dress them up but I'm pretty sure that if I tried to this would be the look that I would get from them.



Copics used:
YG03, R27, G24, W00, W1, T1, E33, E41

The little docksie just screams "happy!"  Can't you see him bounding through some new fallen snow with this smile on his face?


I think this is one of my all time favorite Christmas sets.  I love my dogs so much and know so many people that have dogs and would LOVE a card made with one of these little cuties!

You're the Life of the Party!

    Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite Art Impressions stamps.
Are any of you Everybody Loves Raymond fans?  These two remind me of Marie and Frank.  They're always scowling at each other but deep down you know how much they love each other.




I used a verse from 4237 – At the Movies Set



On the inside I used an image and verse from two
Ai Shakers Sets.



Copics used:
W1, BG0000, B04, B34, B52, B97, E25,
E29, E33, E51, E57, E93, YG00, YG11, G43

Here's his bottom in motion.
