Under my umbrella by Kerry

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!  
How's the weather?  Any April showers?
It might be raining... but nothing will stop these loving Girlfriends looking absolutely fabulous!
I just adore the Under My Umbrella set, and their raincoats are just totally awesome!
And of course, their stylish boats and shoes.  Love it!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Party People! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of the fun FRONT and BACKS sets from Art Impressions.
The set is called Maturing (sku #4570)

Now...I made this card a little while back before it was available in rubber.  I had a "sample" set and my image is backwards...the back and front didn't line up.  Due to this my card isn't a true F & B.  I've since received the actual rubber and can't wait to try them with the matching dies!

Shake your grass! by Sharon Caudle

Hello AI Fans!!
Happy Weekend everyone! Hope you're enjoying your day and getting to play with your paper and glue! I wanted to show you a fun card I made for my girlfriend's Birthday. I used the Hula Set (sku# 4306) Gotta love it when you get to Shake Your Booty in celebration!!  :) 

You want to stamp the inside portion of the stamp twice, and color the entire stamp for the base. You'll then want to color and  cut out only the booty portion of the other one. That's the one you'll put on the action wobble.  Then you can Shake Your Booty all you want! 
Copics used: E04, E11, E00, E000, R20, B00, B02, R22, R24, R27, E17, E99, E97, Y32, E33, B41, E50, E51, E53, E55
Thanks so much for visiting and hope you get some time this weekend to be crafty!

Quick And Easy!

Hi Ai Fans!
Sometimes you just need a quick and easy way to whip up a card. The Ai Pop Ups are the perfect choice! This set is called "Deco Set 1"and comes with 2 designs with 4 sheets per pack. Both sets are from the "Girlfriend" collections, "Beauty In Progress" and "At The Movies". 

What I love is the quick way you can make a card. All you have to do is punch out the images and layer them with foam squares or dots onto your card. Instructions are included in the package and each image is numbered in the order you are to layer them. What is simpler than that? The price is right at $7.35(USD) especially when you can make four projects with the set!

Don't forget to enter in our current Challenge "Make Me Smile" and check out the online store!
Happy Stamping!
