If you are a fan of interactive cards, this might be up your ally! In the special, you will get the Circle Centre and the Shutter Card (will be showing this one this weekend!) along with a couple circle sentiment dies and pre-cut cardstock!

My card features the Circle Centre die and the pre-cut cardstock that comes in the bundle! The cardstock is thick and that's the key with this die, the thicker, heavier weight the better! These dies also come with great instruction on how to use them, there are a lot of different options with the dies and the instructions cover them all!!

For this card, I used the sold pieces to cut the polka dot pattern paper, from dark blue cardstock I cut the sentiment From Me To You. With adhesive tape, I adhered the matt pieces along with the circle sentiment.

I got the pattern paper from Sara Davies Signature Collection - Birthday Party and it has some great matching punch outs. I added a present and hat to the card with foam tape. I added the banner punch outs after adhering some twine to make a banner.

When you open the card you can see the back circle panel and I added Birthday Wishes punch out to that. You can really make this card as easy or as complicated as you want!!

Baseball is Like .....

Hello!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog with a card featuring one of the new AI People! The Baseball Set is perfect for a baseball lover who is on the mend!! And it dosesn't have to be a guy either! When with a nice pink baseball uniform the player!

I started by stamping the baseball image and using my Spectrum Noir Markers to color her. I used: CR4, CR6, DR6, EB1, EB2, EB6, EB5, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG10 and the Blender. When I am coloring white I use a little bit of the light grays and the blender to blend them out to the white of the cardstock.

For a background, I found some patterned black and gray paper from Doodlebug and adhered it to a white card base. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card stock and adhered that across the card.

After fussy cutting the image, I added it with foam tape and last added a few pink and gray enamel dots!

Thanks for stopping by!

Art Impressions Challenge #206 - Make it Mini!

Hello!!

Well, I goofed up! Totally didn't think that today was Thursday and that I had plenty of time to work on my AI Challenge post! Wrong!! LOL!! I'm sorry if you stopped by and found very empty post! Let's try this again!!

It's the second week of AI Challenge #206 - Make It Mini! And it's to help celebrate the 5 New Mini Tryfolds!! And they are adorable!! My card today features the Everything Wonderful set!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions

To start I stamped the three images on white card base and used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to color them. I used: AB1, AB3, AP1, AP3, BG2, BG6, EB7, GB2, BG4, BG7, BG9, LG3, LG4, IG2, IG6. Then I used sharp scissors to fussy cut them out.

Next I picked out some pattern papers and planned which ones I would use for each image. In the end I used some pattern paper for the first two images. To make things easier I first used the little dies that come with the set to cut out the openings for the first two images.

Then I added the pattern paper to the card base, all the Tryfolds come with instructions and followed them to create my cardbase. Then starting with the first and largest image I adhered it to the front of the card. Then with the die cut out the inside oft he present. I did the same thing for the second image on the next flap. For the 3rd image I added the cup cake and stamped the sentiment below it.

Find Me Irresistible

Hello!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card featuring one of the new AI People stamps, Irresistible Set. These new AI People are so funny!!

I stamped the image on white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color it. if you happen to use SN Markers too, I would suggest using Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth Cardstock, it really works the best with SN Markers! The colors I used are as follows: CR4, CR6, CR10, EB5, EB6, FS4, FS6, FS9, GB1, GB4, GT2, GT3, IG2, IG4, IG6, PP5, TB1, Blender. After coloring I fussy cut the image out.

Next, I picked out some fancy pattern paper that I thought would look kind of like wallpaper and added the yellow pattern to a white card base. To break up all that yellow I added the pattern paper strips across the card.

Then I stamped the sentiment and trimmed it down to a rectangle. I added the sentiment and image to the card with foam tape.  With the busy pattern paper, I decided not to add enamel dots or sequins! A little hard for me to do!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
