Home is where you park it! from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a card made with one of the images from the SC0651 Ai His and Hers Campers from Art Impressions. Ai clear sets are available at Michael's (through Hampton Art)

The front of the card says "Home is where you park it."

The inside says Congratulations from the Graduation Hats Off Set (Sku#4289)

I thought this card would be great for someone who is retiring and moving or maybe for when someone new moves into the neighborhood or a housewarming party.

Always & Forever wedding card

Hello and happy Wednesday!!

Today I'm sharing a near carbon copy of a card I made just a little while ago.  I had a co-worker request a wedding card with little notice so I went the CASE myself route since I've been swamped lately.  You can see the original card HERE.

This is my new creation.

I just LOVE dies.  I think you can add such a level of elegance to a card with them.  The background is a Martha Stewart punch (which is just as good as a die only  much chunkier to store)

The flower was made with the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies and the mattes are from Sizzix.  The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.

Art Impressions Tweeter Set for Halloween!

Hello Ai fans!

This is my second post today so please scroll down to see my other post.  My card features one of the new Halloween sets from Art Impressions.  The set is called Tweeter Set (Sku#4523).

I also used the cute little bats from the Air-Hag Set (Sku#4309)

The verse on the inside is called Trembley, Shakey (Sku#I1787). 
I also used the cute little Hanging Spider (Sku#F1771).

Here's a view of all the layers.

I'm not sure if Ai planned this or not but the eyes on the costume are the perfect size for googly eyes.

Girlfriends at a winery! Lucky them!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite GIRLFRIENDS images from Art Impressions.

Bear with me...there are A LOT of pictures in this post!  I spent nearly a full day assembling two copies of this card and I want to be able to remember it when it's gone!! lol!!  I had to fussy cut 8 barrels, 8 tiny mice, two cheese platters, two sets of Girlfriends, 10 wine bottles and two wine glasses!!  I'm takin' lots of pictures!!

The cheese platter is actually from Luigi (Sku#T2832).
What a happy coincidence that his platter fit perfectly on top of the "wine" barrel.
If you look closely at the Luigi image you'll see that what I've used as a tablecloth is actually his hand holding up the tray.  Pretty cool huh? 

Here's a close up of the Girlfriends and their shiny wine glasses.

The mice may have been a challenge to trim but they were worth every second!  Aren't they the cutest thing ever!  I know no self respecting winery would really let mice run around the tasting rooms but they made this card extra special.  Furries TF (Sku#4208)

Check out the shiny "glass" window with the grapevines hanging from it!

The wall art and the wine bottles were all just printed off the internet. The Wine Taster piece is actually a sign that you can order for your house! I just shrunk it down...WAY down... Cute huh?

This is one of the verses that comes with the Wine Taster Girlfriends set.
