Reindeer Mini Shaker by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

They're so cute.  On my card I used...

I wanted the sweet little reindeer to be the focal point of my card so I just embossed some white paper with some Christmas verses.

E35, E42, E53, E77, R37, R46, R59

TriArt: P-11

Have a Wheelie Special Birthday!

Hello AI Fans!!

Today I'm showing a card that is featuring the brand new Mini Shaker #4794 Wheelie Mini Shaker! Isn't he just the cutest??!!  He looks just like I would if I got on a skateboard! LOL! Actually I take that back. I don't think I'd be able to stay upright on it long enough for you to capture an image like this of me! :)  So I stamped him on Cryogen white paper and then cut out the wobble portion of him with the included die after coloring him up with Copic markers. Don't forget about the mini wobbles!  That's the only ones I use now!! 

Copics used:
E000, E00, E11, R20
YG11, YG13, YG17
YR04, YR07, YR09
T1, T2, Blender
Y32, Y35, Y38
B00, B02, B04
E33, E35

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have time this weekend to get crafty!!

Come Let Us Adore Him!

Hi Ai Fans!
Happy Friday!! Today I am sharing with you one of the new Mini Tryfold stamps sets from Art Impressions. This one is called "Nativity MTF". This set was so easy to use as all the instructions, stamps and dies for how to complete your project come with the set! Having said that..... I followed along with the instructions but made my tryfold base smaller as I wanted to mount it on the front of my card. 
The size of my little white section is about 3x3". I used a ribbon to keep it shut and added a Tomboy fastener on the back for easy opening. That way the bow stays nice when you want to close it back up.
The Photoplay "Luke 2" 6x6 collection was the perfect choice for my papers!
I added some paper on the back of the layers as when you colour it with your Copics some of the ink bleeds through and this hides that problem.
On the inside of the card I used the Ai Sentiment called "The Season"
Copics Used:
BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99
W00. W01, W3, W5, W7, W8
E00, E11, E30, E31
Y00, Y15, Y17, Y26, Y28
R20, R59, B000

Don't be afraid to try the Mini Tryfolds! They are super easy and so much fun! You will wow your card recipient!

Happy Stamping!
