Beach Babes!

Hello Ai Fans!

Cheri here, and today I want to share with you two cards that I made with the Ai Set called "Beach Babes" that you can find exclusively at Michaels by Hampton Arts. I thought this set was the perfect way to celebrate our booking of a sunny destination getaway!

Hi Punkin' Pie by Sherry Eckblad

Hello Ai Fans!

Sherry here today sharing a fun little Halloween Treat I created using the newly released Punkin' Pie Set (4520).

(Copics Used: E00, E11, R20, R17,E15, E24, YR24, E41, E42,
 E43, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR18, YR15, YG03, YG09, YG17, N0, N1)

I colored the image and then fussy cut it out and applied it to the tag using foam tape to give it a little dimension. I used some of my Halloween papers and wrapped each of the mini chocolate bars and inserted them into the cellophane bag.

A quick and easy treat to hand out to a few friends.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Warm Your Heart Set by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have a Christmas card to share today using some fun, non-traditional papers with the Warm Your Heart Set (Sku #4519):
I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the pink poinsettia, and hilighted it with my clear Wink of Stella pen for a little glimmer.  Here's a closeup of my penguin:
And here is the inside message:

Don't forget to join in our Humorous/Punny challenge!  You can link up your creation here - there are always fabulous prizes to be won!

You're Incredi-BOWL! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today, to go along with the recent  Art Impressions release of new Ai People I'm sharing a card made with the Incredibowl Set (sku# 4530).

I usually bowl about once a year so she's probably better than me, plus I don't have a cute shirt like she does. (and I think that matters...I'd definitely bowl better if I looked the part!)

Here's the verse that comes with this stamp...
It says You're gutter-ly INCREDI-BOWL!
I just love puns!!
