For a Reel Great Campground owner!

My 10 year Art Impressions anniversary and GIVEAWAY!

Hello Ai fans!

Today is a big day for me, or at least the next couple days are.

How long have YOU been an Art Impressions fan?
For me it's been about 12 years.

Back when there were land lines in houses I can remember walking in from work and hearing my phone ring.  I answered the call and was invited to be a part of the Art Impressions Design Team.

I accepted the invitation and have never looked back.

Tomorrow is my 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!
How lucky am I??!!

For my 10 year anniversary I have a couple things...

First off... I have a giveaway!
Be sure to scroll all the way past my cards for the giveaway.

Secondly, I've had some medical issues the last few months. 

My cards are Thank You cards for my medical team.

I made a few different versions because I have quite the staff!
Don't I sound fancy?? lol!

This set comes with several different adorable verses and
accessory stamps like the cute band-aid.

On my last card I modeled the black and white dotted mug over one that I have and love.
I'm planning on taking a goodie basket to them as well.  I hope they enjoy it!

For my third card I switched up the colors and paper.

I accessorized with some enamel dots and a button nurses hat.

Now...for the REALLY fun part.  For my anniversary I have a gift for YOU!
Since it's July I figured I'd give away a Christmas set because who doesn't love Christmas is July?

5353 – Large Snowflake Dies

These dies are so beautiful and are perfect for any winter craft even if you don't make cards.  You can use them on scrapbook layouts, ornaments and any other craft you love to do.

In order to be eligible all you need to do is leave a comment telling me if you like or don't like snow, or, maybe you've never even seen snow in person?  I know Art Impressions has fans from all of the country and the world so that's possible too!

I'll announce the randomly drawn winner next week on the blog.
Good luck!

I'll leave you with this...
This was my very first Design Team post way back on July 5th, 2011.

Exclusive Cherry and Roses from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing two cards with you.

For my first card I used 

I stamped the roses several times, fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape to add lots or dimension.  The butterfly is from 5200 – Butterfly Set.

The inner frame was cut using 5061 – Square Double Stitched Dies.

See all the fabulous layers?  This makes this card so interesting in person.

My second card also uses one of the exclusive floral sets.

I stamped the verse on 5064 – Circle Double Stitched Dies.

Hey there! Thanks a Bushel!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a first with you.  I've 
made plenty of easel cards through the years but
never a sideways easel card.

I've used one of the Critter Cubbies on my card.

to mount my main image.

The verse is stamped on 5133 – Flag Double Stitched Dies.

The above photo is when the card is closed and the photo below is what it
looks like when it's opened.  The large cow by the door is a fun freebie!
Just order $30 or more and one of the sweet farm animals will be on their way to you!

Though I didn't use them, this set comes with some fun dies that cut open the door and window so the critters can peek out of them!  How fun is that?

Ahoy there Birthday Gull!

Hello Ai fans!

My very sweet niece just turned 21 and I needed a card.  She's not your traditional 21 year old.  When asked what she wanted for her birthday?  Dinner and a night at a local casino with me, her mom, grandma and her other aunt!

The Funny Farm series at Art Impressions is one of my favorites!!
For her card I used the new 5399 – Gull-Friends Set.

I used several of the "stitched die" sets from Art Impressions.

I also used the gull from the 5325 – Sail Mini Dies.

On the inside I used one more stitched die...

For those of you who are curious... my niece came out about $60 ahead!
We'll consider that a big, birthday win!!
