Mini Squirrel & Raccoon Spinners

 We know you all love the line of Ai Spinners... so that means you're going to adore the new Mini Spinners!!  These are so cute, and they make up in a jiffy.  Here are Mini Squirrel Spinner Set (Sku #4735) and Mini Racoon Spinner Set (Sku #4733):
 Now, the mini's all come with a front and back image, a small image and a sentiment.  The small images are symmetrical, so they can be used as both the front and back.  The set includes dies to cut out both of the images.  So EVERYTHING you need to make adorable spinner cards is included!  You also might notice that the images are all drawn so that they are reaching up, so I've made it that my squirrel is reaching for his acorn, and my raccoon is reaching for the cupcake.
For the raccoon card, I used one long piece of sewing thread to sandwich between both images, again - so that he is reaching for the cupcake.  It's quite fun, because the two images don't spin exactly the same, so it really looks like he's chasing the cupcake.  Since the images look great front or back, I always make my spinner cards pretty on the inside as well:
 You wouldn't believe how hard it is to photograph these!!  They don't sit still - I'm sure it would be quite funny to watch me struggle to get a good photo.  There are six new spinners available in the Ai store - you can find them all here.
Copics used: Browns - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E47, E44, E43

A Wedding Card

Wedding season is upon us!  This sweet High Hopes image is called Just Married #TT026  and is perfect to customize with each couple's wedding colours.  I chose a champagne/grey combo with touches of peach and green.  You can't tell in the photo, but the papers and banner have a great shimmer to them, to dress up the card considerably:
 I coloured the image with Copic markers, and made up a few 3D flowers that I cut with my Cricut.  A few champagne coloured pearls, and a bit of twine finished it off nicely.
Found in the One Crazy Stamper store: High Hopes Just Married # TT026

May Challenge at One Crazy Stamper

We're kicking off a brand new month over on the One Crazy Stamper blog, with some High Hopes stamp inspiration from their most recent release.  We are also starting a brand new challenge for May, which is "Anything Goes" - so be sure to link up your creation.  Today I'm using the fun Shopping Divas #TT027:
I wanted to make my own cell phone to show the selfie pic of our shoppers, so I cut the shape in some navy cardstock, and added a clear gumdrop, and I thought that this paper from Imaginisce was a good choice! The sentiment is also from High Hopes - Girl Talk #FF002
Available in the One Crazy Stamper store:

Hello!  The Art Impressions Design Team are all showing off the 3 new stamp sets that are available in Michaels this spring - they're super cute!  You saw the bowlers here on my blog last week, so today I am sharing the Get Well set.  I love that these work perfectly for a male or female:
This is the no-nonsense nurse image that comes in the set:

Cat Lady Try Fold Card

 I haven't made a try-fold card in a while, and have been dying to use the Cat Lady TF (Sku #4340) from Art Impressions, so I had fun doing some colouring this weekend:
 Here is the finished card, tied and ready to send... I tied a length of white organdy ribbon around the lower third of the card to hold it closed, and when it's untied, here is what it looks like:

 Since the Copic markers bled through the white cardstock a little, I backed the inside with some fun polka dot paper, and fussy cut around the edges before mounting it all on some coloured cardstock.  There are quite a few Try-Fold sets to choose from in the Art Impressions store, you can find them all here.
