Duck Stackers

 I hope you're loving the newly released Ai Stackers from Art Impressions as much as I am!  They're a hoot to colour, and the die makes assembly so easy.  Here is Duck Stackers (Sku #4738):
 I made a flip version of my card, and switched up the stripes:
 And here it is with the pull tab pulled out of it's slot:
 Copics used: Y38, Y35, Y32, Y13, Y11, R30, R20, YR18, YR16, YR15, B000, B0000

Texting BFF

Hello Ai fans!
I have a couple of fun birthday cards to share today, using the clear set Hot Java Mama (Sku # AiCS32) which is available exclusively at Hobby Lobby stores:
This is the perfect image for me... being a late December baby, literally all of my friends from school are older than me!!  I can hardly wait to send a few of these cards out to them (grin)!  I used some kraft cardstock for my base & mats, and added some pink zigzag stitching with my sewing machine.  Here are close up views of each of them:

 This is a wonderful stamp set with two large images, two small images, and seven sentiments!  Check it out at Hobby Lobby.
Copics used: Skin tones - E11, E00, E000, R20
Greens - YG05, YG03, YG01, YG00
Pinks - R35, R32, R30
Yellows - Y38, Y35, Y32
Browns - E55, E53, E51, E50
Greys - C1, C00, C3

There's nothing like opening up your mailbox and finding a little package of new Verve goodies waiting for you!!  And the day before the Postal strike is supposed to happen, too (lucky me).  So of course I had to pull them out and make a little something - here is my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

Patterned papers are Spring by Echo Park; Cardstock is Cocoa, Glacier & White Daisy, CTMH; Stitched Circle, Square & Pennant STAX dies by My Favorite Things; Stamp set is Simply Amazing by Verve; Amazing Adjectives die, Verve; Black ink CTMH; Pastel Sequin Mix, Verve.

Flaunt It Girlfriends

 I have a wacky Art Impressions Girlfriends card for you today, using one of the recently released sets - here is Flaunt It Set (Sku# 4756):

 I wanted a little glimmer, so after colouring the image with Copic markers, I added some Wink of Stella to the tiara, hatband, glasses and hair tie.  I popped the sentiment up with pop dots and added my favourite enamel Gum Drops!

 There are three sentiments in the set, and I used another one on the inside, with a pair of glasses that I die cut from some brown glitter paper:
Copic markers used: Skin tones - E37, E34, E31, E00, E000, E11, R20
Hair - Y26, Y23, E50, E15, E13, E18, E07, E02
Pinks - RV19, RV17, RV14, RV13, RV10
Oranges - YR18, YR16, YR15, YR12
Greens - G28, G24, G21

New Ai Stackers!

Art Impressions has just released a new line called "Stackers" that are now available on the Art Impressions website!

The Design Team are all sharing cards made with the five new images and the Slider die.  Today, I'm sharing Dog Stackers (Sku #4740):
 This is what the card looks like when the recipient receives it - I created a sliding tab with some taupe cardstock, rounded the bottom edge and stapled on a piece of ribbon to act as a pull tab.  The green frame was cut with the Slider Die (Sku #4764).  Here is what the card looks like when the tab is pulled out:
Our current challenge on the Ai blog is "Slide On By" - we want you to have a hidden element on your card, like a slider or a flap, etc.
