Hot Java Mamas by Art Impressions!

Hey, all!  Today I'm sharing this card on the Ai Blog.  Be sure and stop by daily for inspiration from the design team, contests, and general awesomeness!

These Hot Java Mamas are from the Girlfriends Blend set which comes with 3 (count 'em!)...3 fabulously hilarious sentiments!  It's a perfect set to create cards for all the coffee lovers in your life.  Find it in the Ai Shop and be sure to take a look around while you're there, because there are tons of wonderful images to see!

This is the first of 2 posts I'm putting up today, so pop back in to see another card in a couple of hours!

Until then, stay crafty!

Hey all!  Back today sharing a card I made with the Art Impressions Pop Ups.  These new designs are not yet available in the Ai Shop, but I encourage you to check your local craft and stamp stores, because there's a good chance that they have them.  If not, ask your local stores to carry them, because they are super fabulous!

Need a quicky card that takes about 10 minutes to make?  Look no further!  These cards come together almost by themselves and their added popped up details make them extra special.  LOVE their 3 dimensional feel and so will your lucky recipient.  These sheets are perforated to create a larger square card, but I wanted to create a smaller A2 card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I cut the sides of my pop up sheets to fit this card and managed to not lose any details by fussy cutting around the sun and the wine glass.  Fun, fun, fun!

The other great thing about these sets is that they come with a number of sentiments.  Use them on the front, use them inside, use them wherever you need them.  Find some of the Ai Pop Ups in the Ai Shop along with LOTS of other fabulous images!  Check out the Art Impressions Blog daily for inspiration from the Design Team!    

Dang, I could get use to making cards this way! ;)

Until next time, stay crafty!

Art Impressions...Pop It Up!

Hey, all!  Back today bringing you the latest and greatest challenge on the Art Impressions blog.  Our theme this go round is Pop It Up!  Create a card with some sort of dimension and a fabulous Ai image and enter it!

For my card, I went the quick and easy route and opted to use one of the brand new Ai Pop Ups designs.  No need to color, no need to fussy cut...Ai has done all of the heavy lifting!  Just punch out the different layers, affix with dimensional tape or foam dots, add you own favorite accoutrements, and voila!  The new designs are not listed in the shop just yet, so you're getting a treasured sneak peak from some of the DT members, but watch the shop because they'll be listed soon.  

We can't wait to see your Pop It Up creations!  Until next time, stay crafty!

As always, check out the Art Impressions Blog for daily inspiration from the DT.  I better get to bed, I'm about to pass out on my keyboard.

Until next time, stay crafty!
