Fa La La


     It's definitely the time to be stocking up on your Christmas card makes.  Today I'm sharing one of Art Impressions new PopCard sets, Singing Snowmen.


     I have them peeking through the front of may card with an aperture, but when you open it up the fun really gets started.  The popcard design allows those jolly singers to pop out of the card for lots of dimension.


     I'll be sharing lots more of the new Christmas releases from Art Impressions.  Several clear stamp sets were just released in the store today.
     Have a blessed day!

Cozy in front of the tree


     I'm back today with another Art Impressions Mini Tryfold set, Winter Window.  I used the images to layer again on top of the card base.  Doesn't this look like the coziest winter home.  Kitty thinks so.


Have a blessed weekend!

Fall foliage


     It's two-fer Tuesday!  LOL  I'm behind in getting my projects posted so you get two Purple Onion Designs creations today.
     First up is Cinnamon Squirrel who is thankful for all his acorns.  I stamped the leaves and acorns (Autumn Fallings) several times and added them to the Hang in There tree branch.  One of the sentiments from the Thanksgiving Feast sentiment set finishes off the stamping.


     Next up is some loose watercoloring over images from the Doodle Foliage set.  I just used several Distress inks to add fall colors and LOTS of splatter.


     For those of you wondering, the benefit for my friend went very well this past weekend.  God blessed and on top of the money we were able to raise we got to know lots of her family who came over from New Orleans and Atlanta to help.  Amazing people and now people we can call friends.
     Have a blessed week!

Who's behind door #1


     Art Impressions has some new Mini Tryfold sets out and today I'm sharing the Magical Christmas set.
 
     I like using the stamps and dies to create layers for dimension as well as interaction.  Isn't it amazing how Santa fits in every chimney no matter what size.  LOL


     I'm neck deep in preparations for a fundraising benefit this weekend for a beautiful young single mother of five kids under 8 who's battling cervical cancer.  Please pray that everything goes well and me and my church family can bless this treasure and her family.
     Have a blessed day!

Yeehaw


     Do you remember the fun skeleton I shared with you last week.  Well he's just one of the five new Wiggle Wobble sets from Art Impressions.  Wiggle Wobbles combine the fun of an action wobble with brad jointed legs for lots of movement.
     Today I'm sharing a card made with the Cowboy Wiggle Wobble set.


     For the card front I cut out and framed a peek-a-boo window revealing part of the cowboy.  I used one of the two accompanying sentiments and stamped some extra boots.


     The inside is the dance hall.  hee hee  This guy really does kick up his heels when you give him a flick on the action wobble.  Legs are flyin' everywhere.


     Weekends almost here.  Enjoy!

What's in the cabinet?


     One last Halloween card for you.  This one uses Art Impressions Halloween Treats Mini Tryfold set.
     You can use the tryfold sets in so many different ways.  For my card I just used the different layers of the stamp set to create a dimensional focal point on the front of my card.


     I think the little cat found a really "sweet" place to take a catnap.  LOL
