Art Impressions Challenge #219 Stamp a Scene Week Two!


Hello AI Fans!! It's week two of  the Stamp a Scene challenge at Art Impressions!  The whole design team is showing you their creations using the three new Mini TryFolds! My card today features the amazing 4930 Magical Christmas Mini TryFold.  It comes complete with the dies needed to cut everything out! How cool is that??!!  I love that the door is cut where it swings open to reveal the scene inside!!  I've got a few pics for you here, so grab your favorite cuppa and hope you enjoy!






Open the front panel of the card and you get to see the living room scene....so cute!!


And then open up to the inside of the card and you get to see all of this adorable Santa! 



I mounted the TryFold card onto the front of a regular card. This is the first time I've done the Mini TryFolds this way, and I think it's pretty cool! 


Please be sure to pop over to Art Impressions Blog to check out all the gorgeous TryFolds from the design team! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today and hope to see you back again soon. Until next time - stay crafty!!

Shake Rattle and Roll with Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!!

Today's card features the adorable 4952 Skeleton Wiggle Wobble from Art Impressions brand new Wiggle Wobble line! He's perfect for Halloween or even "over the hill" types of Birthday cards! I just adore him! Don't forget to keep your brads loose when you attach his limbs.  I used my needle nose pliars and just bent them kind of up and then over so they wouldn't be flat against the paper. 





I positioned him to look like he was doing the robot! LOL! I thought it worked out pretty well. I just tightened down the brad that is holding his shoulder together so it wouldn't wiggle when he wobbles. :)  So his lower arm just rocks back and forth. 


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope to see you back again soon! Until then - stay crafty!
