Are you ready for a Halloween party? by Kerry

Hello hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
I can't believe it's already the end of August already.  I'm not ready for the summer to be over, but better yet, October is just around the corner, hehe!  Yes, yes, I'm thinking about Halloween, I love all things Halloween, it always WICKED fun.  And not to mention the candies and the cool costumes and the parties!  So, I'm sharing a card to kick off my Halloween fun using one of the Hobby Lobby clear sets which are now about at the Ai website, woohoo!  I used the Birthday Wishes set.

I colored him with all the WICKED cool Halloween colors. I think he is ready for a Halloween party?    And he even have a Halloween gift too!

Sally Swimmer says GOODBYE to Summer! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing my farewell to summer card.
Nothing says summer like Sally Swimmer!

Art Impressions has the cutest people!

Sally can be purchased on her own or as a set with this adorable sentiment.

Version number two...
Because who wouldn't love MORE Sallys?

I just changed up her colors slightly to match the papers on this card.

I'm here for the Booos!! Art Impressions Old Bat Set

Hello AI Fans!!! 

Today I made a super fun decoration for Halloween! This would be so awesome to hang by a bar if you have one!  I used the brand new Old Bat Set!!! FUN!!!  I picked this frame up at Michael's and didn't have to do a thing to it. It was already distressed perfectly for a Halloween decoration. I simply added a scalloped edge, some bats, and sentiment frame, all of them cut with the Silhouette. I stamped her on Cryogen white paper and colored her with Copic markers, then just fussy cut her out with my scissors. I popped her up from the background with mounting tape. 

I cut a small piece of white paper to adhere behind the bat's eyes so they would stand out. 

Do you love this sentiment as much as I do??

and I finished it off by adding a big silk bow centered with a green button to pull the green out of her. Oh gosh, you can really see my lack of fussy cutting skills in this closeup. UGH! It was pretty rough trying to get the inside of that chair with a clean cut. 

So that's it for me today! Hope you're joining the Too Cute to Spook Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!

Pain in the Rear!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I made a bit of a different card. It's called a swing card. I'm using the "Bloomer" set and an action wobble on her behind. 
This time the papers are from the Echo Park Party Time 6x6 collection. A few YNS Gumdrops in the corners and a bow finished off my card.
Not only will her behind wiggle and wobble but the card will swing open to show her other side. I inked all the edges of the paper with Vintage Distress ink for an added look.
I just love that sentiment and it's included in the set along with one action wobble. I decided to cut the sentiment carefully into bits so that I stamp it to fit inside my SSS Talk Bubble.
Here you can see the action wobble.
