Halloween Circlet


     Today I have one of Art Impressions fun Circlet Mini Tryfolds to share.  This one is the Halloween Circlet MTF.
     I saw this amazing card by AI Guest Designer Diane Zechman and I just had to use her instructions for the construction of the card.  I added a belly band to mine. Everything was colored up with Prismas.

Pumpkin stack


     I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was waiting on a box of goodies from Art Impressions for the newest release.  Well it made it and I have been busy making cards.
     The first one I am sharing is from the Halloween Magic Set.  Art Impressions always lets the retailers who carry their products sell them first before adding them in their own store so you can find this set and the others I will share at online stores like Simon Says Stamp now.

Age appropriate




     What does that mean?  LOL  They say you're only as young as you feel. Welllll..sometimes I feel pretty darned old and other times I feel like a kid (my body won't let me act like one though LOL).
For these two girlfriends from Art Impressions it means a night out on the town.


     The card was made using a recent tutorial posted by Jennifer Maguire for an Inside Shadow Box card and AI's Crazy Friends set.  The birthday cake on the front of the card comes from the Sunny Shades set.  
     I used my stitched rectangle dies to cut out the opening and then created a background for the party girls with a city scape die, some Distress inks and a little white paint splatter.  The ladies were fussy cut and added to the top of the frame.


     If these two look familiar it may be because you saw them at CHA last January or on the videos Art Impressions shot there.  I colored them up for an emergency display card and sent the images via email to AI so they could create cards for the show.  Their version was awesome so here's mine..
     Happy Wednesday all!
