Happy Howl-oween!

Hi Ai Fans!
I have to tell you when I say this set I just burst out laughing! This just reminds me of my dogs! Yes I am that person that dresses up their pets for Halloween (much to my Hubby's dismay) LOL!! This is the new "Howl-oween" set from Art Impressions. I'm sure lots of you also do this to your pets!
Oh My gosh don't their faces just say it all!
See...... I am that person!!
I used one of the sentiments and image on the inside of my card. This sentiment rings true for me as well. If anyone knows my fur babies you know they get more treats than they need.

Copics Used:
Dogs: E40, E41, E43/ C0, C1, C3
Cat: C1, C2, C3, C5
Flower: YR04, YR07, YR09, Y32, Y35, Y38
Bunny: Y21, Y23, Y26
Cat outfit: BV02, BV04, BV08, YG23, YG25

Happy Stamping!

Quivery Quakey by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Halloween will soon be here and I wanted to share a project with one of my favorite sets of the Ai new releases. Today I am sharing a card using the new Quivery Mini Shaker set (4793) which includes matching dies!
How cute are these trick-or-treaters?

The image was cut out by hand but the bats, pumpkin, and pig & duck bodies are die cut.  The pig and duck are raised with a Mini Action Wobble for extra fun.

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

NEW VIDEO - Winter Barn Watercolor

Hello Ai Fans!

Welcome to a new Watercolor Wednesday and the start of our Winter Watercolor series! In this video Bonnie created this beautiful, snowy barn using our Old Barn Set. She masked some softly falling snow using the Molotow Masking Liquid (now available at and created a blue sky backdrop to set the scene. Mixing in another set, Bonnie grabbed the wreath from her Wooden Door Set and easily added berries and a ribbon with a red Marvy Marker. To finish the scene, Bonnie added some barren trees using the twig stamp from our WC Series 6 Set 1. This scene is perfect to send holiday wishes with a stunning Christmas card!

We hope you enjoy the first tutorial of our Winter Watercolor series. If you like this video, make sure to subscribe to our channel and give a "thumbs up" over on YouTube. We appreciate all your feedback and look forward to sharing more snowy scenes soon!

Happy Watercolor Wednesday!
