Art Impressions at Michaels Blog Hop

 
                         
The Art Impressions Design Team and some very special guests are having an amazing Blog Hop today to announce the launch of 5 brand new Ai sets that are being carried in Michaels Arts & Crafts stores! Be sure to scroll down through my post to see a list of all the hoppers today, as well as a link to FAQ's regarding the Michaels sets.  You should be arriving here from Tracy MacDonald's blog... and without further ado, here's my creation using SC0651 Ai His & Hers Campers:
The camper set is so much fun!!  There are four images and four sentiments - perfect for a retirement card or just a fun friendship card.  I've made a gift bag and matching tag for a retirement gift.  Here's a closeup of my tag that I coloured with Copic markers and tied with some tulle, twine & a button:
And here's a closeup of my gift bag.  Since I was using a plain kraft bag, I wanted to jazz it up a bit by adding strips of brightly patterned papers in varying lengths behind my image.  The sentiment reads: "Still young at heart... slightly older everywhere else"
Here's a picture of all five of the new stamp sets:

 
If you haven't seen all the posts along today's hop, head on over to the Art Impressions Blog which is the first stop on today's hop (you just might see a few more of my projects over there!!).  Your next stop is Angela Boutiller's blog - have a great day everyone!

I think my favorite thing about AI stamps is how well you can interchange sentiments and such. These cards are wonderful, and I am looking forwards to the new sets.

I dont see a lot of stamping on bags so I like this idea.

Thank you for making and sharing!
