Holiday Mansion from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Did you see the big announcement about a week and a half ago??
Art Impressions was on Home Shopping Network!

just as much as we do!



I have loved this series since day one. I'm glad Bonnie keeps adding more accessories for the house.


You might be thinking...I don't know...it looks pretty complicated.
Don't be intimidated!  It comes with dies to cut all those little pieces which makes them a snap to assemble!

The windows and doors open to reveal hidden surprises.
How cute is that?!

I Brake for Dreams!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my friend.  I've worked with her for 12 years and she's now moving to the Middle School.  I wanted to wish her well.
Her family owns a marina and I know she loves nautical things so I think she'll like this.

The Live Your Dream verse is from the Sea set and the verse inside is from the Phrases set.


I wanted it to look like the turtles were swimming and there were bubbles all around them so I made a shaker card.  The paper with the coral inside the shaker it a pretty shimmery metallic paper.


I love Sting and my card makes me think of his song Dream of the Blue Turtles. (Just the title...not the actual song)

Wobbly Bear Birthday card

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card with you.
except that I thought it would be fun to put him on an action wobble!

You can find the entire Slider series here.  The slider die can also be used with the Stacker series.



My card is pretty dimensional. The plane and several of the clouds are popped up on foam tape and the bear is on an action wobble.


Here you can see him popped up on the action wobble.  Give it a tweak and he wobbles! I tried to take a video but my camera has a stabilizer on it so it slows it down to the point where he barely (bear-ly...ha ha!!  I love puns!) looks like he's wobbling.


Bye all!  See you next week!

A little birthday reminder help!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing
over at Art Impressions.

Do you have trouble remembering special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries?  I know I do!  I came up with a solution.


I made a desktop calendar that works for any year.
I put the dates and months on it but no days of the week or years so it can be used over and over again. You simply write each persons name or names on the dates. Then as the date approaches you should be able to get their card mailed out on time!

I supported the calendar with the 4699 – Square Easel Die from Ai.
I cut two of them to be sure my calendar was sturdy.


The months are all held inside and can be swapped out to put the current month in the front.


Here it is when it's empty.


You can see inside that there's room for the pages. I popped up the front on foam tape to make a "pocket" for them to go in.

Hope this helps you get your cards out on time!

Happy Birthday Sophia!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made for a little girl's 6th birthday.
I thought she'd have fun with an interactive card.

I've used 4801 – Panda Slider Set



This panda is actually part or the Slider/Stacker line.  He's meant to go on a slider card using the Ai Slider die.  I wanted Sohpia to have a little more interaction that just pulling the straight slider die. (don't get me wrong... I LOVE that die!)

I really think she'll have fun sliding the plane back and forth.

I Brake for Poppy Silhouettes!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a silhouette card.



I stamped it in black and then added just a touch of color here and there.
I left it blank for now.  I think it'll make a pretty birthday or get well card.


I can't wait to try the other stamp from this set!

UnBEARable! from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a card from the 5113 – Pand-tastic Set.
Since bamboo is green I decided to go with a very basic color combo.
I love black and white with a pop of color.


I also used 2 die sets from Art Impressions.
and


I just love how wiped out this little guy looks.
The set comes with 5 verses but I think this one is the sweetest!

I Brake for Irises!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a floral card.
I think I'll use it as a birthday card but we'll see.
I think it would be a pretty sympathy card as well.



I highlighted the image by framing it with a vine die.
My irises are currently blooming.  I have two different varieties and they look so beautiful right now!

Woodland Tree Cubbies! New Ai Critters

Hello Ai fans!

Did you see the amazing new release over at Art Impressions last week?
The new line is called Critter Cubbies.


Just like the Holiday Mansion there are lots

On the inside I used two of the verses that come with the set.


The set comes with dies to cut all of the animals, the tree and the leaves so NO FUSSY CUTTING!!  Hooray!
