Meow-lloween! by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
By now I'm sure you've seen the fabulous new Halloween images that Art Impressions has come out with for 2016, and I have a few of them to share today!  Here are three cards using Meow-lloween Set (Sku #4786):

These were such fun images to colour!  I used a mix of patterned papers, cutting a couple of rectangles on the diagonal, and using them for a couple of cards.

 And this is what I call a 'Simple Spinner Card' - unlike the Ai Spinners that have a front and back image that spin around, this is just a single image that I cut out with an oval die, and then mounted some patterned paper onto the backside, after sandwiching a piece of thread down the middle.  I used my next largest oval die to cut an opening in my card base, and suspended my little oval in the middle of it.  (So you can turn just about any image into a spinner!)


 Now is a great time to check out all of the Halloween images that are available in the Ai store, and get started on your Halloween crafting!

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.
