Aging Is Mandatory!

Hi Everyone!
WOW...the last Saturday of August post over at One Crazy Stamper! Where did August go?? Today I am sharing with you a cute interactive swing card using the Art Impressions stamp set called "Maturing set". I love this set and it would also make a perfect card to give as a group to someone!

I made this swing card with my Silhouette machine and then added the images to the base. This stamp set is perfect for anyone who loves to colour! There is a lot of detail to it and I find it super relaxing when I can just sit and colour!

I am using paper from the Simple Stories "So Rad" collection. I also cut out some balloons and popped up two of them. I attached them to the sentiment that comes in the set with some twine.

The Maturing set  comes with the front and back images and there is a matching die set that makes it super easy to match up your images perfectly!

I used a black gel pen on their eyes and buttons and Crystal Stickles on the balloons.

The Lawn Ranger!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I am sharing with you the oh so cute Lawn Ranger set from Art Impressions. He's a perfect image to use for a birthday card for that special guy in your life!

I decided on papers from the Echo Park's "A Boy's Life". I used Pretty Pink Posh's  Stitched Borders 3 to cut my image and paper down the middle. I inked up some YNS puffy clouds with Memento Summer Sky ink and added a sun I made using my Silhouette machine. I stamped the sentiment that is included in the set and cut it apart for a little different look this time!

On the inside of my card I am using the sentiment called "Chronologically Gifted". And of course decorated the inside with the leftover paper from cutting my sun. Nothing goes to waste in my craft room LOL.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Shirt & socks: T1
Shorts & hat: YR14, YR16, YR18
Mower: YG21, YG23, YG26, T1, T3, T5, T7
Chair & well centers: Y21, Y23, Y26
Shoes: E43, E44, E47, E49
Grass: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97

Happy Crafting!

Just Hanging Out!

Happy Tuesday!
Well Fall is on it's way and Halloween is right around the corner, so I am getting a head start on my "Halloween Stash"! I just love this little vampire from High Hopes Stamps called "Just Hanging Out". He's just adorable and the Bat is super cute too!

I used some Halloween themed paper from my stash and layered it with green cardstock to match his pants. I used my new Silhouette machine to make the adorable little card base.

Isn't the base so cute! I love how you pull up on the bat for a surprise Halloween greeting! The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Trick or Treat Greeting"!

Copics Used:
Face: E00, E11, R20
Head, shoes and cape: T3, T5, T7
Bat: W3, W5, W7
Branch: E43, E44, E47

Have a great day!
Happy Crafting
