Tuscan TF Set by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
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:

Scratch by ReneƩ Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

I guess I should clean up my pile of scrap paper more often.  I was rummaging through it the other day and came across a half finished card.  I had started making a duplicate of THIS card and apparently never finished.  I changed things up a bit and came up with what you see here.

Hi, Got any cake???

Hello AI Fans!!

So are you having a fantastic weekend?? I know I sure am! It's supposed to be hot, which means I'll be spending some time indoors coloring my favorite stamps from Art Impressions!

Today I'm showing you those cute little rascals in the ANY CAKE SET which is from the Front & Backs Line !! Oh my gosh this was such a quick card to make! It went together in no time!! I used the ANY CAKE DIES and the Window Die!  Using the dies made this quite easy!

For the inside window, I simply die cut another window and cut he shutters off it! Voila! Instant indoor window!

So that's it for me today! Don't forget the current challenge we've got going on right now to make a card set! Can't wait to see what yumminess you create! Thanks for stopping by to see us today and hope you get a little time to be crafty!!

Copics used: W1, W3, and W5 (can you believe it???) :)

Style Is Everything!

Hi Ai Fans!
Isn't Lovelle one HOT BABE!! Lovelle on the couch (#2618) is such a cute stamp to use and Ai has so many sentiment sayings that you could put with her! I chose to use "Style is everything" on the front as Lovelle is rockin' those glasses. She just makes me smile every time I see a picture of her! 
The design of this card is really simple with paper from Bo Bunny's Zip-A-Dee-Doodle 6x6 collection with some layered cardstock. My card size is 4 x 5.5". I fussy cut Lovelle and paper pieced the couch using foam squares to adhere it to the card base.  I cut an extra cushion and popped it up with foam squares to add a bit more dimension.

On the inside I used another sentiment called "My Advice". Another great humorous sentiment from Art Impressions!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20, RV17
