Hello Papertakers and happy Tuesday!! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week Dawny says it's Two by Two! So interpret how you may...use two images, two papers, two of anything. We are sponsored this week by the fabulous folks over at The Hobby House!
Today I'm showing you a card I created for a recent wedding I attended. I've always loved this image. It just screams romance, don't you think? The image is from Mo Manning colored with Copic markers. The sentiment stamp was just loose in my stash, so I have no idea who it's made by (sorry!). The bow is May Arts silk ribbon topped with a pretty Prima lace flower. I added a few flat backed pearls and called her done!
So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the amazing creations by the design team, and then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!
Yay! We made it to the weekend! Today I wanted to show you a card I made using one of the new AI Shakers called My FeetSet! He's so cute! I altered him by simply fussy cutting him out and cutting off his pumpkin! Voila! A little monster you can use year round!
We're all super excited today as we're having a Reunion Blog Hop at Art Impressions! Veteran Design Team members are joining in with the current Design Team members to celebrate the release of the brand new AI Spinners and the launch of a new challenge!
You should have arrived here from my amazingly talented and creative DT sis, Renee! But if you just happened to stumble on this Reunion hop, it all starts right HERE at the Art Impressions Blog! There is also a list of the links below in case you need it!
So as I was saying, Art Impressions has released SEVEN brand new Spinner Sets!! And yes, I have to have every single one of them!! LOL! Today I'm featuring the adorable too cute to spook Witch Spinner Set(#4679) and I also used the Witch Spinner Dies(#4698). Isn't she so CUTE??!! ! I don't think she would scare anyone at all, but her candy bucket would be full from being so adorable! I also used the Giant Jack-o-lanterns to decorate the front fence. I made a 5x7 shutter card Silhouette cut file which turned out to be perfect for a spinner. It allows room to decorate the front of the card without hindering the spinning action. But you don't have to cut one with the Silhouette. It would be fairly easy to score, fold, and cut one of these by hand.
Here's a nice close up view of this cutie pie!
And here's a kind of sideways pic to show you the dimension of the card. All the decorative elements of the card were cut with Silhouette files.
And a little action shot of the card!! You simply wind up the spinner and close the card. When the recipient gets it and opens it, they see this
Do you want a chance to win one of SEVEN awesome prizes??? Art Impressions is giving away Seven stamp and die sets!!!! One of each of the new release!! WOOHOO!!!! Be sure to sign up!!
Hey everyone! We've started another brand new week and we've now got Monday under our belt! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and the first Tuesday of the month means it's anything goes and we're sponsored by the awesome folks over at Lili of the Valley!
There is an option of making a Halloween treat holder, so that's what I did this week! It just so happens that this adorable cut file is on sale over at My Scrap Chick. FUN!! I downsized mine so I could fit two of the treat boxes on a 12x12 piece of cardstock. Isn't he a cutie??
Please be sure and pop over toPapertake Weekly to check out all the hauntingly awesome creations by the design team, and then I hope you join in the challenge with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
Happy Weekend and can you believe it's the first of October already? Wow!! Have you seen all the awesome new Shaker Sets that Art Impressions just released? So CUTE and FUN!!! Today I'm featuring the adorable Bells Ring Set! This is just the cutest snowman I think I've ever seen!! And to add another layer of cuteness, I added jingle bells to his little behiney. Could he be any more adorable?
When I'm using bright colors, I like to shade my white with blue. When I'm using more muted tones in my card, I then turn to my Copic Toner grays to shade the white.
And a little wonky look at the shaker
And a little video so you can see and hear him in action!
It's week two of the Shake It Off Challenge at Art Impressions! We are celebrating the release of the brand new AI Shakers!! They are so much FUN!!! They're fun to color, and they are sure to bring a huge smile and some chuckling! So for my card today, I'm featuring Jingle Set! He is the cutest Reindeer and he loves to Jingle his bells!!
I loved these papers with him cause they remind me of the barn where Jingle would probably stay.
And a little action shot of the card
Sure hope you join us in the challenge to "Shake It Off" over at the Art Impressions Blog! And please be sure to pop over there to see all the amazing creations by the DT!
Hey everyone!! It's the last Tuesday of the month, and that means two things...the first is that the challenge at Papertake Weekly is "Take your pick!". And the second is that we are sponsored by the amazing folks over at Simon Says Stamp!! For my card today, I made another one of the Peek-a-boo cards! These are so much fun!
Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the gorgeous creations by the DT and then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
