Texas Long Horn birthday from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing another new release from Art Impressions.

This guy is called Long Horn Set (Sku#4686).

This fun guy is part of the new Texas ZooCrew line at Ai.

Masculine cards just might be my all time favorite type of cards to make so I was very excited to see the first two releases from this line.  Both would be perfect for the guy in your life. (as well as any girl too!)      Isn't that saying inside adorable!!

I Brake For Hagatha Crone!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a Halloween card that made.  I used Miss Hagatha Crone (rubber).
If you're someone that prefers digital she can also be purchased that way...digi Hagatha.

There are SO MANY fun and spooky Halloween images at IBFS.

I colored her with Copic markers and the bat border is from Martha Stewart.

Armadillo Birthday! from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!!

I'm so excited to be sharing a brand new release from Art Impressions with you!  They have a new line called TEXAS ZOO CREW.

The image I'm featuring is called ARAMADILLOS SET (sku#4685)
I decided to create a pull tab card.  One where you pull the top of the card up and it reveals the sentiment. 

For my first step I planned out my "gift box" bottom, top and ribbon.  I used glue dots to adhere the ribbon.  Make sure that the box bottom and the top are lined up when you place the ribbon or they won't be centered.

Next I needed to pop up the space behind the card where the tab 
would fit into and slide in and out of smoothly.

Once I had the foam dots in place I adhered them all being careful to line things up and center them.  The dots on top will keep the tab from going inside the package too far.  It will keep the box lid in place on top of the package.

Here's what it looked like all put together but with the tab slid out to read the verse.

It slides in and out so you can personalize it.

Lastly I colored up the image to match the papers I chose.  Aren't they adorable?!  I'm a huge animal lover so I adore this new line.  We don't have armadillos where I live so I was pretty fascinated by them when I saw them live in person in Florida.  I hope you love them too!

Gobble til you wobble!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a couple of Thanksgiving cards with you.  I know it's a little early for that but since the current challenge over at Art Impressions is Anything Goes I decided to take advantage of that and share them now.

I used Gobble Set (Sku#4369) and an Action Wobble (Sku#4266) on my card.
I did a bit of a fancy fold and used a button and some twine wrapped around it to keep the card closed.

The other one was similar but closed a little differently (less folds in the front) so I used a metal paper clip to keep this one closed.

I popped up the turkey with some foam dots and gave him some flat back pearls in brown for his eyes.
