Art Impression Gordon Golfer-Father's Day

I had so much fun making this card!

 I enlarged the little golf cart from a small embellishment piece on a box card purchased from the Silhouette Store. I did an offset of the cart on my Silhouette to make the card base. I also cut a piece of cloud paper to adhere to the front of the card base. I also cut a piece of green "grass" with a  my Lawn Fawn hill die to mimic a rolling golf course green!  The golf cart was added on pop dots and then Mr. Gordon was added on top of the card on pop dots as well.  I love Gordon's stylin' golf attire-don't you?

Inside is the companion sentiment that comes with the set--- Always golf with extra socks, in case you get a hole-in-one!

Michael's brown and green cardstock, SU! pink, misc pearls

I made a couple pretties with my Silhouette cutting machine this week...I saw them in the store and made them just as displayed, no need to reinvent the wheel as they were so pretty. I love the simplicity of the first one and the pretty see through open flowers.

The second card has lots and lots of layers...4 on top of the base card! I used a ton of pop dots, but the layering adds so much fun to the card-this one is going to my Mom! Note: I did resize this file to 98% so that I could cut 2 cards out of 2 12x12 pieces of cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping in today!

Hi Hunny Bunny and Lucky Ducky!

 Here are a couple cute little cards I made for the Art Impressions Make and Take at my local stamp store-Urban Paper last week.  I love those little critters peeking out! This is a cute front and back set from Art Impressions.  Again, it does come with a matching die to cut them out, but I don't have those darn it! I chose to cut them out close to the lines and line them up-old style LOL.  I cut out the card base with my Silhouette and used a couple dies from Inspiration Emporium/Lawn Fawn for the grass and ground.  I used a new little Impression Obsession flower die-it cuts out like a gazillion flowers with one cut-love it! The card base is a pretty powder  blue polka dot from Bo Bunny.   (Unfortunately, the pictures below do not show the pretty blue of the cardstock so I took a couple outside today)

These little cards are sized at 3x4 so they are perfect for a quick little note! I must say...I made a bunch of these because they are so darned cute!

You've Gotta Spin

 Yep...sometimes you just have to go with flow...or spin as in this sentiment!  All you have to do is twist this image around several times and then slip the card into  an envelope. When it is pulled out-the happy Art Impression lady spins like crazy-very fun(Ha! Her name is probably Kate)!A great front and back stamp set! I did not buy the coordinating die to cut her out, sure wish I had, but you can make it happen without it like I did if you want.  I must say, I bought the birthday bunch with the matching die...oh boy do they cut amazing!  It is all colored, but is not made into a card yet.

I have been playing with all my new Art Impression stamps as my Local Stamp Store (Urban Paper) had an Art Impressions make and take day last Saturday and I made a few quick samples and also a few super easy cards for the make and takes. What a fun day it was too! So...there are more quick and easy  Ai cards coming your way LOL!

I started by using my new stitched square Stackable dies made by Lawn Fawn  that I got through Inspiration Emporium. Oh I love those stitched dies! I tacked the print cardstock  and the white cardstock together and then cut out the oval with a Sizzix oval die. The string is stuck between the design paper and the card base. The sentiment was stamped on  circle stitched die from My Favorite Things.  The flowers are a paper punch I have had for ages.


I am entering in the following challenges:

Happy Birthday Sweetums!

Hellooooo!!!  Did you think I got lost?   So sorry!  Unfortunately, both my Brother and Father have been very sick...but are on the upswing now and I am so thankful! Sorry-I just had to step back and take care of family...

It is hard to get "back into it"-you know what I mean?

When I am away from my crafty area, it seems it is so hard to get my mojo started again. I just have to force myself to jump back in!

Wondering how you get jumpstarted?  I either CASE some other amazing crafter or do some serious coloring or fire up my Silhouette machine!

For this card I used my Silhouette and did some easy coloring too!

 This polka dot 'bum' is on an action wobbler. When you open the swing card, it catches his shoe and makes it wobble like crazy. Sure makes me smile! This is such a fun Art Impression stamp-perfect for my Sweetum's birthday yesterday! Obviously, he would never be caught in such wild pants(he is known as the wear Brown every Wednesday guy) LOL!  I used Basic Grey papers and Art Impressions  Shake Your Booty from Inspiration Emporium. 

The fun swing/flip card is and svg file from the website Birds Cards. I had to google for a flip card that had a rectangle wide enough for the man holding the Happy Birthday sign. That's the  great thing about the Silhouette, you can resize your card base to fit as needed!

Well thanks for stopping in today...I have some very fun Art Impression creations coming your way...I got some fun front and back stamps, a twirly one and one of the new Big Mouth stamps. Can
you tell I love Ai Stamps???

I hope you can join our April Challenge at Inspiration Emporium Blog...the theme this time is Everything Goes! You could be the winner of $50 IE Dollars!

I also want to thank all of you who joined in the blog hop Light It Up For Autism Awareness (see my post HERE)

The winner of my blog candy stamp is Jessi Fogan from OneCraftyMama.

HMFMC 192 April Showers

Glitter Text Generator
or Anything Goes

Welcome to the newest House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-April Showers...
Now I must confess...I had it in my mind that the challenge was I guess this card will have to fall in to the Anything Goes category in the challenge this go round.

I have been waiting to color this image-it is so darned cute!!!! It did take a while to color it up though-lots of details! I did originally color the baby buggy a different color and I did not like it so I paper pieced the buggy with some Graphic 45 paper-and liked that much, much better! I made this into an easel card, using some little punched flowers to hold up the easel. 

In the spring theme that I was going with...I had the perfect little Happy Spring stamp I had planned on using...a nice clear little Inky Antics stamp, but my oh my--it is stuck to something somewhere and not where it is suppose to be!


Here are the details for this challenge:
