Celebrate by Sherry Eckblad

Hello Ai Fans!

Sherry here today and I am sharing with you one of my favorite images from the newest ZooCrew release.

(copics used: E50, YR000, R20, R05, Y02, Y11, Y15, YG05, YG07, YG13,
BG13, BG15, N1, RV13, RV23, RV25, YR07, YR15, E57, E59)

I love paper piecing, so decided to do that with her dress after I colored and fussy cut the image.

The shaker card was fun to create. I used a Polaroid  frame that I had in my stash and a piece of acrylic packing from a stamp set to create the shaker portion of my card.

I added glossy accents to her hat, glasses and frosting on the cupcake.

A quick birthday card that is fun to make.

Art Impressions Air Hag Wall Hanging!

Hello Ai fans!
Happy Sunday!
I hope you all enjoyed the Halloween releases from Art Impressions.
The challenge this week is to make a creation with Orange, Purple and Black.

I decided not to make card this time but a Halloween decoration.

I made a large rosette and then pretty much accessorized it as I would a card.
Now I have a cute little scene to hang year after year.

Although, ultimately I think Christmas is the best holiday but Halloween definitely wins for the sheer fun factor!!  Our family loves dressing up and trick-or-treating every year.

I used two different sets on my rosette.
The image is called Air-Hag set and the verse is from the Witch Wanda set.

My rosette is about 8 inches in diameter.
That gave me plenty of room to create my "midnight ride" scene.

Copics used:
T1, T3, T5, C3, C5, C7, Y02, YG05, RV66,
E00, E13, E33, E42, E43, E51, E93
