sending hugs through the mail Art Impressions style!

Hello AI Fans!! 

Just a really quick card from me today showing off the adorable 4363 Tweetheart Set from the Shakers line at Art Impressions. I just love this image to send someone a hug through the mail.  The top half of her is on a mini wobble. Too precious! 

And in this next pic, you can see the mini wobble. 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today, and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!

Hello AI Fans!!

I'm soooo excited to introduce you to one of the brand new Girlfriends Stamp Sets!! I used #4890 Crafty Girls and they are celebrating the 30th Birthday of Art Impressions!! Doesn't get any more fun than that!!! If you're a crafter, you know exactly how much fun they're having sitting around that table and catching up on life as well as their crafting needs. There's nothing like crafting with your Girlfriends!! 

To start my cards, I always pick the stamp first, and then go with some paper that I think matches the feeling I'm trying to portray with the card.  I usually pick two or three matching papers so I can create my different layers. Then I get ready and start coloring the stamp to match the colors in the papers. As you can see, I didn't just limit myself to only the colors in the papers I simply picked some coordinating colors and tones and had fun with it. 

I then started cutting my layers with mats. I do indeed like to use several layers of paper in my cards. :)  

I added some Glossy Accents onto the cutting machine under the table.

Then I added some Diamond Stickles onto the papers the Girlfriends are working on.

Next step is to go ahead and adhere all the individual layers together, and then place the layers onto the card, one by one.  I usually always pop the image layer up.  I finished it off by adding a little bit of bling with some Viva Decor Pearl Pens in different sizes on opposite corners. And I can hardly make a card without adding a bow. LOL! 

I can't wait to see what you come up  with for the new Girlfriends Stamp Sets!! Thanks so much for visiting and hope to see you joining the challenge!
Stay crafty!!

Art Impressions PopCard featuring Oldie!

Hello AI Fans!

Today I'm showing another PopCard! This one is sooooo much fun!!! I used #4859 Oldie PopCard (don't forget you need #4862 PopCard Template too).  She comes with a wine bottle or a cupcake that you can put in her hand. I chose to let her hide inside without putting a window in the front. So it's a super fun surprise when you open the card and she pops up to you! So the front is just decorated with a simple doily die cut with the sentiment popped up in the center of it. 

So have you tried the PopCards yet?? If you have, I 'd love for you to put a link in the comments so I can take a peek! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today, and hope to see you again soon! Until then - stay crafty!!
