I stamped the image with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.


I used water color pencils to color it in.  I also went over the flowers with Wink of Stella but it doesn't show up in the photos.

You're one in a Melon!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a thank you card with you. 
Caution...bragging mom moment! lol!  My daughter won several scholarships at Senior Award night and I need to make a thank you card for each individual/organization that gave her money.

For one of the cards I used 4970 – Produce Stand MTF from Art Impressions.



Although this set is meant to be a Tri-fold card I only made it 2 layers since I needed 7 cards. I couldn't spend TOO much time on one card.  I still think it's quite special and the recipient will appreciate it!  The photo above shows the awning closed.  You then open the "window" to show the sweet little raccoon inside the card.


Then, you open it up and you can see the little guy that you got the sneak preview of.  I made this card for a woman named Melanie ... because she gave my daughter an award for digital art ... and ...she's one in a MELON... get it?? "Melon-ie"??  Cheesy, I know!

I Brake for Circles!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing 2 thank you cards that I made for people/organizations that gave my daughter scholarships at her Senior Awards.

I've used


I colored all the little circles with Copic markers and then highlighted them with two different shades of Stickles.


There are little dots around the ring and I placed a rhinestone in varying sizes on each one.


The insides are both blank right now but I will stamp a simple thank you and my daughter can write a personal note to each person.

Thanks a whole SLOTH!

Hello Ai fans!
We're starting week 2 of the Odd Animals challenge over at Art Impressions so that means it's time for me to play along!
I've used the new Sloth-some set from the Funny Farm line.

Every year my sister's fertility doctor rents out the Syracuse Zoo for his patients.
My sister and her girls always go and they always take him a little thank you gift.
This year I used a clear plastic take out container to create a gift box.  She's not sure what she's going to put in it yet, but it's ready when she figures it out!

How cute is this little guy??

I decorated the inside of the container as well.

I Brake for Birthday Chrysanthemums!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a floral birthday card that I made using two products from
I Brake for Stamps.

I've used November Chrysanthemum -Jumbo
and
Old Gold Fusible Glitter Sheet

I stamped the flower with Versa Mark ink and embossed it with detail white powder.  I then used a re-inker to color in the image.

I only wanted the flower and the leaves so I did a little trimming.
I know that mums are generally a fall flower but I wanted to make this bright and summery for any birthdays that might pop up over the next few months.

NEW! Art Impressions Happy Camper MTF

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a sweet new set from Art Impressions.
If you've never seen them before, the mini tryfolds are a series of stamps that are interactive.  You can see through parts of the first two layers into the inside of the card.


My card is for the Ai Challenge, door openings.
You can click the banner to be taken to the blog and see the other designers' cards or to enter the challenge yourself!


Here's the front with the hatch open.
You can see into the cute little napping fox.



When you open the first panel you see the inside of the camper.


Then open one more panel and there he is!


These are so much fun to use.
People get a real kick out of them when I give them out.
