New Parrot Twister from Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!

Have you seen the latest new line from Art Impressions?
It's a super fun Twister line and they're so easy to make!

There's a die to cut the frame and then each Twister image comes with a die to cut that specific shape out.

When the card is open you can twist the bird back and forth to see his front and back.  He's so CUTE!!

Art Impressions Coffee Gift Card Holders!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing another card that I made using the 5222 – Coffee Gift Card Holder.

How cute is this set?? 
When you grab the cap and pull, out comes the gift card!

I've added a coffee gift card to my card but even though it's coffee themed you could put any gc in here.  I don't drink coffee but I would still enjoy receiving this card with say...a Michael's or Hobby Lobby GC! Ha ha!

I used another of the stamps from the set on the inside.
The stars were also cut from a die in the set.

The coolest thing is that you can mount it on a card or just use the GC holder on it's own.  This is the other version that I made to share with you.

Which do YOU prefer?  Placing it on a card or leaving it "as is?"
I can't decide!

I Brake for Beautiful Daisies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card Spring-like card.  
I don't mind winter but around this time of year we occasionally get a nice 50-60 degree day and it makes me long for Spring.

I really like this sheet of stamps because it's a nice selection of Flowers and Fall stamps.  I can't wait until my daisies come up.  It's usually around 4th of July.

I haven't finished the inside because this card could be used for so many occasions.  I'll wait until something comes up and do it then.

Hoot Hoot Hooray!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a masculine birthday card.
I was recently inspired by the Art Impressions Challenge to combine sets.

I used the owls and verse from the 5179 – Autumn Owl Cubbies
and the leaves from 5100 – Woodland Tree Cubbies.
The branches are from 4964 – WC Branches Set.

The sentiment actually says Hoot Hoot Hooray Halloween is here!  Since I only wanted the Hoot Hoot Hooray part I only inked up that portion of the stamp.

On the inside I used the verse from the 4972 – Owl Flutter Set.

I Brake for Birthday Roses!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card with you.

I've used June Rose.

I think I'll send this to my sister-in-law.
She's the next birthday up in our family.

The sentiment is from the Every Day Phrases set.  The most useful set I've EVER owned!!  I believe there are over 40 verses in the set.  You'll grab it nearly every time you make a card.

Welcome Baby! from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a fairly new set to Ai.
This adorable image comes from the set called

 I wanted to put together a shaker that reflected something sweet and feminine.  I used some seed beads, sequins and tiny little safety pins.

A friend of mine has requested a baby card for her friend who is due this spring.  She doesn't yet know the sex of the baby so if it's a girl...I'm ahead of the game. If it's a boy...I'll need to get busy with THIS set instead!

I used one of the sentiments and a small
image from the set on the inside of the card.

Happy new baby!!

I Brake for Elvis!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day card.
I used half sheet Elvis Part 2.
The sentiment was printed from my computer.

Inside I used Every Day Phrases.
There are so many wonderful sayings in this set.  It's probably my biggest "go to" set I own!

My husband and I are going to a dinner and wine pairing at a winery to celebrate this year.  What are your plans?

New Gift Card Holders from Art Impressions!

Hello, Ai Fans!

Get ready for the release of these perfectly giftable Art Impressions Stamp & Die Sets!

I hope you all love this new set as much as I do.  How many of us has a friend... or 10 that are obsessed with coffee??  Even if they aren't, this is such a cute way to give a friend a gift card of any sorts!

When you first give the card it looks just like that...a card.  Then your friend realizes that the lid pops off and they have an extra special gift inside!

I created two versions, both very similar.

For some reason I felt like twine really went with this set.  I know everyone has a different vision for stamp sets but I saw twine.  I can't wait to see what you all create with this amazing new set!

The second addition for this week is our Mailbox Gift Card Holder Enjoy this special delivery--a stamp and die set that is a gift-card holder with decorative elements for any occasion. Ten dies and 8 stamps are included with this versatile and sweet set. 
The brand new Small Alphabet Set is a great companion to add an address, recipient, or name on the mailbox!

I love this new mailbox.  It has SO many possibilities!
When I made this I didn't have the instructions and had never seen on put together so I kind
of "winged" it.  My flag and closure arrow are not being used the way they were
meant to be but they still look cute to me and got the job done!

When you open up the mailbox it reveals your gift to your friend.  Mine was a GC to my mom and pretty much my best friend.  We love to go out to lunch and shopping when I have a day off.  (she's retired...darn her!  But she deserves it!)  I have to wait for a holiday or weekend! lol!

You can find these three new sets at

We want to see how you create cards or gift tags with any recipient in mind!
