Santa Shake!

I'm on a Christmas card roll these days... so I've used the fun Santa Shake Set (Sku#4348) from Art Impressions to make a 5 1/2" square card with an Action Wobble on the inside:
For me, classic red & green never gets old on holiday cards... and I love the strong contrast provided by the black base.  I carried the papers through to the inside of the card, and Santa's derriere is popped up on an Action Wobble so that his booty shakes when you give it a little flick!  The sentiment is "Jingle Bell ROCK!"

You can find all of the Ai Shake Your Booty sets here on the Ai website.  There is still time to join in with our Fancy Folds challenge - you can link up your creation on the Ai blog for a chance to win a prize.  Happy stamping!

Mojo Monday #367

I got a lovely package of happy mail today... a few weeks back, I won Verve's entire October release for one of my coffee cards (yay me!).  I could hardly wait to open it up and start creating.  Two of the stamp sets are perfect to make cards for someone fighting breast cancer, and with October being Breast Cancer Awareness month - I wanted to make and post a few cards.  Here is, I'm sure, the first of many using this week's Mojo Monday sketch:
The October Verve Diva Dare is "Pink Power", so I am entering this there as well!
Patterned papers are Sweetheart, CTMH; Cardstock is Grey Wool, Cotton Candy & White Daisy, CTMH; Inks are Black & Cotton Candy, CTMH; Stamp sets are Pink Power & Better Together, Verve; Dies are Pennant Trim and Ribbon, Verve.

New Art Impressions Note-Ables!

Art Impressions is launching a brand new line of stamps today on the Ai website, called "Note-ables"!  I am sharing a notecard and bookmark today using Elle Note-able (Sku #4510):

You write your little note on the inside of the card, and then tuck the edge up under his feet!  Here's a view with the note opened up:

And this is what the sweet bookmark looks like when he's holding your page:

There are four new Note-ables (see below!) and each one comes with the main image, a sentiment, and a 'doo-dad' to decorate the inside.
Check out this wonderful how-to video done by Kate from Art Impressions to show you how fun they are to put together:

We have a Fancy Folds challenge going on for another week on the Art Impressions blog - you can link up your creation here.

Old Guys Rule

 I have a masculine card for you today... using the wonderful Old Guys Rule set (Sku #4474) from Art Impressions:

Blues - B39, B37, B34, B32

Graphic Birthday

Just another quick card that I made this week for a family birthday.  I'd had the zigzag die cuts sitting on my desk for a while - they're negative die cuts from a card that I made a while ago.  I just received the "happy" die, and thought that they'd all work well together:

Zigzag die, My Favortie Things; Happy die, Avery Elle; Stamp is Say It In Style, CTMH; Cardstock is White Daisy, Black, Moonlight, Tulip, Sorbet & Creme Brulee - all CTMH; Enamel Dots, Your Next Embellie.
