Art Impressions at Michaels Blog Hop

Everyone that reads my blog knows I love Art Impressions stamps, so I was thrilled when they invited me to join their blog hop this week as a guest designer.  What's so special about this blog hop?  AI has released 5 new stamp sets at Michaels Arts & Crafts stores!  They are all super cute and contain several images & sentiments in each set.  So I hope you have the time to check out the great work the design team has come up with this week.   

Here's a peak at these super cute sets.

SC0652 Ai Crazy Cat Lady
SC0653 Ai Beach Babes
SC0651 Ai His & Hers Campers
SC0650 Ai His & Hers Gardeners
SC6049 Ai His & Hers Flying High

I have a couple of cards I made using two different sets.  The first is a birthday card using "AI His & Hers Flying High".  The images were stamped & colored with Copics.  The paper was from American Crafts "Mayberry" collection & the cloud die is from MFT's Cloud Trio Die-namics.


My next card uses the AI set called "His & Hers Gardeners".  The papers are from Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection & I think they go perfectly with these images.  The gate is from Spellbinders Die D-Lite line called "Garden Gate" and the oval & scallop punch for the sentiment was from Stampin Up.  


I'm the last stop on the hop, but if you missed any of the great creations from the design team you can start at the Art Impressions blog & follow the links to each of the design team members or just click on any of the links below you might have missed.
