Challenge 131 - "Take a Peek" Window/Opening Cards

Hello Ai Fans!

Welcome to a brand new challenge with some BRAND NEW product!!!
We're excited to launch some of our newest product, but first we want to announce our winners from last week's "Sheer Perfection" challenge.

Our TOP SPOT goes to …

Our honorable mentions go to …
Karen did a fabulous job with our Celeste Set. Love that vellum window and how you fussy cut part of the image on the inside!

Crystal Lopez
Crystal, we LOVED your very fun card! She did an amazing technique with the vellum … you should really head over to her blog and check it out!

Congratulations Karen and Crystal! Email me at with your address and stamp set of choice!

One more quick announcement! We are so excited to add Sherry Eckblad to our DT today! Keep scrolling down for her first Thursday morning post! 

Now onto our BIG mini launch!

That's right! We have FIVE new Mini Front and Back sets!
These little sets are so fun and have endless possibilities on how you 'peek' them through cards.

So to kick off our fun launch, our challenge this week is 'Take a Peek!'
For this challenge, we're looking for window or something opening to see to the inside of your card. For our Mini Front & Back stamps, we use a 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" square or circle, but you can use any sort of shape you would like! I love cutting up cards for my Minis on my Silhouette, makes it SO easy!

For a sneak peek this week, our DT Karen Day has brought to you TWO fabulous cards! We'll also be featuring a fun blog hop next week with TONS of inspiration from our DT. It's good … trust me!

We're excited for these new releases and excited to see your fun cards this week! Make sure to stop back next week for our fun blog hop and some more fun announcements!

Here are the challenge rules …
✻ Please make a new card or creation. You can make any crafty item you wish; this is not limited to cards!
✻ Limit two submissions per person. You will receive extra votes if you use Art Impressions stamps!
✻ Include a link back to the Ai Blog or grab our button on the top right of our sidebar!
✻ Share the Ai love by clicking and commenting your fellow crafters.
