Ai - Coffee BFF's

Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!

I am over on the Art Impressions blog today sharing a card I made using the Coffee BFF's stamp set from Art Impressions. Head over to the blog and give them some love.  
 I started by picking my paper I wanted.  I thought this pretty pattern paper went well with the green I wanted for my background and the mat for my main image.  I also had the perfect green and white bakers twine that matched perfect.I tied my bow double for extra loops.
Once I had my paper picked out I could start coloring my gal pals.  I trimmed them to the size I wanted and instead of a straight on mat I decided to shift the green paper for a little variety. 

Here is one more look at the finished card.  I love the "generic" format of this card.  You really can use this for absolutely ANY occasion you needed.  I love cards that are versatile to any occasion.
I absolutely LOVE this color combo and papers together so be on the look out for these papers in the future. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and spending a little time with me.  Make sure you come back soon here or to the Ai blog and see what I has been up to.

Ai - you're The Cherry On Top!

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!

I am over on the Art Impressions blog today sharing a card I made using the Cherry stamp set from Art Impressions that is being sold exclusively at Scrapbook.com.  
This card came together rather quickly but I LOVE how it turned out. 
I stamped the cherry image in the bottom right corner of my card.  I Copic colored it.  I added my sentiment above the cherry image to the right of the card. I decided it needed a little more pop so I went around it with my C1 & C3 Copic marker to give it a shadow like its popping off the screen. I added some clear droplets around the image to even out my my card front.  
I added some black and white plaid/gingham to a strip of paper and trimmed it to fit the front of my card.  I glued it to the left side of the card.  I also added some of my Copic marker to a strip of paper so I knew it matched my leaves. I added that to my card front. And ... voila ... DONE ... didn't it turn out cute??? 
Here is one more look at the card ... 

Thank you so much for stopping by and spending a little time with me.  Make sure you head over soon to the Ai blog and see what the team has been up to.

Ai - Spring Celebrations Challenge

Thursday, March 19, 2020
Hello!!

I am back again sharing another card for the Art Impressions 
Challenge ... This week it is; Spring Celebrations Challenge
I am using the new Graduation Set



I started by using black for my card base and a smaller piece of red card stock.  I then used a frame die I had in my stash and applied it on to of my white stamped piece.


I Copic colored my globe and my graduating elephant. I stamped my sentiment that fits perfectly ... LOOK OUT WORLD! I stamped yellow stars as if they were shooting outward in excitement.


As you can see above I used some Crystal Effects on the globe to really make it pop and look as if it is really water.  



Here is one more look at my finished card.  I hope you have enjoyed my take on the Spring Celebrations Challenge. I had so much fun with this card.  I will definitely be making more things with this set. Please head over to the Ai blog and play along ... you could win a fabulous prize.  Have a great day!

PBP - Light Up Card HOP using EZ Lights

Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Happy Wednesday everyone!!! Guess what day it is ...
I am SO excited to be part of the Pear Blossom Press Light Up Card Hop using her EZ Lights. Please hop along with us ... below is all the information needed to win your very own EZ Lights pack.  

I knew as soon as I ordered the new Mondo OMG die from Ellen Hutson that I wanted to use it for this card.  I used my Copics to make an ombre' effect in yellow and I cut out my OMG from my top layer of white card stock.  I added a tiny strip of black and white paper along the bottom.  I stamped the word "your" above the thin strip of black and white paper. I added two banners to the top left of my card.  I colored a light bulb digi I had and applied it with foam tape.  I finished off the front with some clear gems.
Here is the inside of my card.  I colored two more of my light bulb digi's and set them aside until I knew where I wanted them.  I stamped my "Smile" sentiment from Altenew and then die cut it with the coordinating die.  I Copic colored it with the same yellow ombre' effect. I stamped my sentiment "lights up my world" with black ink below my die cut.  I added a strip of the black and white paper to offset the blank spot on the bottom. I stamped and colored my "press here" circle to match the rest of the card. I raised my "Smile" sentiment with two layers of foam tape so that there was a gap showing the inside.
 Now for the magic ... the "Smile" is illuminated from underneath.  I like that it is on the inside of the card so it is unexpected.  How AWESOME is a card that reads "OMG your smile lights up my world" and it lights up??  Wait until you see how easy it is to create ... Keep reading below and I will show you ...
 So being my card is actually made I am now starting on my "box" and the light component. I have my white card base and a black piece I cit a 1/4' smaller to fit inside to help the light shine more.  I then cut 8 pieces of the white card base which is a standard size of 4.25"x5.5" .  I used my new Essential Rectangle dies from Ellen Hutson to make my frames.  I glued all 8 pieces together to create a box frame. I then glued it to my white and black piece.  
Now to add the EZ Light.   Everything comes together in the pack. All you have to do is insert the battery and glue the white logo side down.  See why I needed the 8 pieces to create my frame?  It is sturdier than foam tape.  
 Before you start gluing everything down and attach your card front make sure the EZ lights work :-)
So from here I taped my wired down and figured out where I wanted the EZ lights.  I glued my card down and then finished it by adding my word "Smile" with the foam tape. Easy peazy right????  
Here is one more look at the completed card. Once you start with these EZ Lights by PBP you will not want to stop. 
Doesn't it light up so bright?  The three lights attached really makes a difference. It just makes me happy to look at this card.  Makes me smile for sure!! 
I had so much fun with this card.

Ai - Birthday Gang

Hello!!

I am over on the Art Impressions blog today sharing a card I made using the 
Dog House Cubbies stamp and die set 
from Art Impressions.  
I started by placing a black piece of paper across the front of my card base. I added two small blue strips of paper to the top and bottom of my black strip.  Here is a little secret I will share with you ... It is quilling paper.  I buy quilling paper because it is already cut for you and you can use your Copic markers to make any color  you wish.
I colored all of my images. Look at all of those dogs!  Usually I like to color double of everything in case I ruin one, which has been known to happen LoL.  This way I also have extra to make another card next time.  
Here is one more look at the finished card. I added my Copic colored images to my card front.  I then added some matching pale green confetti sequins to my card front for some depth. Aren't these dogs and their houses just the cutest?
Thank you so much for stopping by and spending a little time with me.  Make sure you come back soon here and over to the Ai blog and see what we have been up to.

Ai -Thin Enough

Wednesday, March 11, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!

I am stopping by today to share a card I am sharing over on the Art Impressions blog using the Thin Enough stamp set from Art Impressions.  There is a larger set called Pamper Yourself which has this stamp set along with a few others. 
It came together rather quickly.  I stamped the woman and the sentiment first and Copic colored her.  I added the panel to my glitter background.
 I finished off my card by adding a shadow for my lady.  I also added some matching sequins for added dimension to my card.  That was it. The card came together rather quickly.
Here is one more look at the card.  I love how it says what a lot of us women are thinking.
Thank you so much for stopping by and spending some time with me.  It is always fun hanging out with all of you.  Stop back soon and see what I have been up to. Also make sure you head over to the Ai blog an give them some love.
