Wine Diva! by ReneƩ Matarese

Hello Ai fans! 

Today I'm sharing a set that I just got at my local Michael's craft store.  It's one of the Hampton Art clear stamp sets that Art Impressions is now offering.

This set is called Wine Diva sku# SC0677 and it's a set of 8 stamps.
You get 2 images and 6 sentiments.

I made a little gift set using an old take out container.  My friends and I are all wine drinkers so this makes a cute little gift to take to a lunch or as a hostess thank you.  It's a cute birthday gift too.

Don't you just love that fun little verse...Wine a little, you'll feel better!
I know I always do!

The other verse...You had me at Merlot comes from the Ai Girlfriends Wine Tasters Set (Sku#4383).  You can also buy it as a single stamp here...Merlot (Sku#F4393)

Copics used: B0000, B21, B93, YG00, Y21, Y28, YR0000,
C00, E25, E50, E51, E57, E81, E89, E93
Tri-Art Markers: O7

Laughter is the Best Medicine!

Good Morning Ai Fans!

I just love a good laugh! It just makes you feel wonderful and it's so contagious! I've had many a great laugh over the years with my girlfriends! I just love this stamp set that is part of the Girlfriend series from Art Impressions called "Laughing set" (sku#4385). This stamp set has great value as it comes with the image and 3 different sentiment stamps! 

I added some fun elements to their clothes by making one of the tops polka dotted and one pair of pants into  a cheetah print. Wink of Stella is my new best friend, so of course I used the clear glitter pen on the blue pants and shoes.

Copics used: 
E00, E02, E8, E11, E18, E19, E50, R20, R24, R27, R29, R81, R83, R85
B32, B34, B37, RV17, Y21, Y26, Y28, C2, C3, C5. C7

It's been said that "Laughter is the best medicine"! I know when I have a good laugh it sure makes me feel great and puts that spring back in my step! Art Impression has so many stamps that will make you laugh, so don't forget to check out their online store and get ready to laugh!

Happy Stamping!
