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!!

{Trick or Treat} by Lesley Croghan

Happy Friday! One week left until Halloween! WOW!


Lesley Croghan here, sharing a "spooky" but super sweet Halloween image from Art Impressions simply called Mice and Sweet Sku #4310! I fell in love with the cute little mice in this set and couldn't wait to ink them up!! They look like they are having a ball, trick or treating!


I used the following products on my card today:

Ghouls & Goodies 6x6 Paper Pad-Doodlebug
(I used last year's paper but this year they have something just as cute!)

Charcoal Solid Twine from The Twinery

Eat, Drink and Be Scary!

Hello Ai Fans!

Question: Why can you never trust spiders?
Answer: because they post stuff on the web! (hee hee)

Today I am "posting on the web" this adorable card using the Be Scary Set (#4521) from the Halloween 2014 release. The sentiment is included with the set. I think she is super cute and it was fun to colour her up with my Copic markers. 


I added some Glossy Accents on the spider eyes and Stickles on the pumpkin to add some
 fun elements to this card.


(Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, E00, E11, R20, RV17, YR12, YR14, YR16)

Happy stamping!
