Cozy Cottage Circlet from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Art Impressions just released a new bunch of circlets so in honor of that I decided to break out one from the last release that I hadn't used yet.
My card goes along with the latest challenge too...stripes and circles.

This one is called



These sets are designed to be trifold cards.  You can accomplish that in many different ways.  For mine I made the first two panels both open on the left to reveal panel 3 on the inside.


I used
to cut out each circle.

This is the second layer.


Here's the inside which you can partially see when it's all closed.


These sets are so much fun!

I Brake for Poppies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card that I made for my husband's aunt.  His uncle passed away a few days ago and we wanted to send her a pretty card.

I just got a new set that I was anxious to use.  It's called
HALF SHEET POPPIES
The verse is from the full sheet called
EVERY DAY PHRASES.


I used one more flower from the set on the inside along with the sentiment called WITH SYMPATHY.


I fussy cut the poppies and popped the up on dimensional foam.



The verse is stamped on a die cut from Art Impressions called
5133 – Flag Double Stitched Dies.

Born to MOW!

Hello Ai fans!

You all know how much I love making masculine cards so I love the 5044 – Born To Ride Set.

I apologize for the for the sentiment in the photo...it doesn't look that way in real life.  On the actual card it's clear and crisp.


I think we all know this guy.  (or at least have seen him on our street! lol!)
Throw some headphones on him and he'd be my husband.  Well, whoever he is he makes an awfully darn cute birthday, Father's Day card etc.
