You're Toad-ally AWESOME!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made using 5283 – Frog Set from the Funny Farm line.  A while back I made a round shaker card using this set and I really liked the round look with these frogs.


I love all animals and these frogs are no exception.  It doesn't hurt that my favorite color is green too!  I used the Art Impressions Stitched Circles and 5133 – Flag Double Stitched Dies.

I Brake for Butterflies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made just to add to my stash.

I just received the set Things With Wings.

I used a large and a small matching butterfly from the set.


I stamped the images on some very thin pink handmade paper that had some gold metallic flecks in it and then added some detail with some Marvy markers.  They're so delicate and beautiful in person...like a real butterfly.

Happy 5th Birthday!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of the cakes
from the new 5255 – Birthday Cake Set.
I cut the 5 out of circles that I made using the 5064 – Circle Double Stitched Dies.


Since I chose to use the number 5 for a 5th birthday I wanted to keep the colors fun and bright.


I always have trouble getting Stickles to show up but their is some on the candles and it's pretty in person.


I used another cake from the set on the inside of my card.


Copics used:
R17, RV02, Y18, Y26, BG07,
BG53, V25, G14, E23, E29

There's one in every crowd!

Hello and happy Saturday!

This is one of my all-time favorite stamps.
My sister's birthday is next Sunday and I thought she'd enjoy this.  She prides herself on being unique.




The inside says "There's one in every crowd."
Happy Birthday!
I just love the "side eye" glances the fun bird is getting!

Cards for Kindness with Art Impressions and Scrapbook.com

Hello Ai fans!
The next two weeks Art Impressions is pairing with Scrapbook.com for their Cards for Kindness initiative.  This is something that's very important to me.  Since the Covid quarantine began I have made 66 cards (including these) to send to people that I've never met.




Here's How it Works

1. You send your handmade cards (blank inside - with no
personal message) to Scrapbook.com.
2. We organize and distribute the cards to cancer foundations,
hospitals, shelters, retirement homes, children's homes
and other organizations in need.
3. The cards are used by nurses, doctors, staff members,
counselors, parents and volunteers who add handwritten
messages of encouragement and love before giving them
to patients, children and other people in need.
For additional information, visit www.scrapbook.com/kindness


I made 12 total in 4 different versions. You need to make a minimum of 10 when you send them.  They can be one design or all different...just at least 10 total.


Check back in a coupe of weeks and you'll see another set of 4 cards I'm sending in with these.  These seemed feminine to me so I made 4 using the Ai Lighthouse Circlet that would be appropriate for men.


If you're able to help out so many people will be cheered by your work!

I Brake for Hydrangeas!

Hello and happy Tuesday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made using a hydrangea from
Half Sheet 137A.



I wanted to make this a very girly card so I added some sparkle and a ruffly ribbon along the bottom.




I also added some white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the center of the flower so when you touch them you can feel the texture.
