Penguin Christmas Card

I have an Art Impressions Christmas card to share today using some fun, non-traditional papers with the Warm Your Heart Set (Sku #4519):
I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the pink poinsettia, and hilighted it with my clear Wink of Stella pen for a little glimmer.  Here's a closeup of my penguin:
And here is the inside message:

Cupcake Shaker card

Everyone should have a sparkly child.  Mine just happens to be turning 17 today.  Ever since she was little, she would always be attracted to anything glittery, sparkly or glitzy.  I'm pretty much the complete opposite, so when I'm cardmaking, she's always trying to get me to sparkle things up a little.  She is also an amazing cupcake baker, which is why I purchased this stamp set immediately when Verve brought it out in September.  I knew a shaker card was the way to go, since I could fill it with tons of glittery sequins.  Here's what I came up with:

I used my pink Wink of Stella pen on the cherry, so it's sparkly, too.
Have a great day :o)
Patterned papers are Molly, Bella Blvd; Cardstock is Outdoor Denim, Bubblegum & White Daisy - CTMH;  Ink is Outdoor Denim, Bubblegum, Whisper & Baby Pink - CTMH;  Stamp set is Cupcakes, Verve;  Sequins, Verve.

New Ai People!

The Art Impressions design team is helping to launch the latest collection of Ai People now available on the Art Impressions website today!  I've made two 5 1/2" square cards using Don't Sweat It Set (Sku #4528):

The inside sentiment is "another year... Don't Sweat It!"

I thought these fun Spellbinders arrow dies made cute accents.  We are launching four new stamp sets today, so head on over to the Ai blog to see what the rest of the design team has to share.  We are also starting a new challenge today - "Humourous/Punny cards" since that's what Ai People are all about.
Happy stamping!

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!
