Live Laugh Love

 I am posting on the Art Impressions blog today!  The summer is ending... so I found myself reaching for fall tones when I was choosing my papers and markers for today's card.  The outfits worn by the ladies just made me think of cooler days.  I have a square card today, featuring one of the images from the Live Laugh Love set #AiCS15 that is available at Hobby Lobby stores:
 This was fun to colour - their expressions just make you want to smile :o)
 I used two of the five sentiments in the set on today's card, here's the fun one that I put on the inside:

More Candles

 I have a bright & bold birthday card to share today, using one of the new Art Impressions wood-mounted stamps that is available in AC Moore stores, More Candles:
 I kept my card fairly simple (those bright papers do all the work!), just adding a scalloped die cut, some zigzag stitching and a few buttons.  The finished card is 5 1/2" square.  Happy stamping!

Mojo Monday #409

I am so happy to be playing along with Mojo Monday today... it's been a little while, so I was happy to have some time to make a card this afternoon - and even happier that it's a Christmas card!  See that little running total over on my side bar?  It's been at "7" Christmas cards for months now...so I need to get a move on.  Now, I tweaked the sketch a little - sort of squashed it down to be a horizontal card, but I quite like how it turned out:
Patterned papers are Elf Magic by Bo Bunny; Stamp sets are Glad Tidings and Merry & Bright by Verve; Inks are Black, Pacifica, Topiary and Cranberry, CTMH; Cardstock is Topiary, White Daisy & Pacifica, CTMH; Enamel Dots are Cranberry & Olive Gumdrops by Your Next Embellie.

Tuscan Try-fold

I am sharing a couple of cards made with one of the Art Impressions 2015 Try-fold sets: Tuscan TF Set (Sku #4580):
I remember the first time that I was making a Try-fold card, thinking how difficult it was going to be (NOT!) and now they're one of my favourite cards to make.  The cutting & stamping instructions are all included with the packaging.

 I often give wine as a gift, so was thrilled when Ai came out with this set!  The inside sentiment says "Wishing you everything under the Tuscan sun"
Try-fold stamps are so versatile, in that each of the three image stamps can be used individually.  I stamped and die cut just the villa image to make an all occasion card below:
 Have you entered our Card Set challenge yet?  You've still got plenty of time - we'd love to see what you come up with!  Happy stamping!
