Mini Front and Back Launch - Art Impressions Blog Hop

Hello Ai Fans!
Hi everyone!

Today Art Impressions is launch their new Mini Front and Back stamps collection and they are just SOOOOOOO CUTE!!!

For CHA I got to play with the owl, the duck and rabbit and the little monkey too and I just adored them. :)

Today, for the launch I made some cards with the little crab and the little frog. The sentiments are just so cute.

Here are my cards:



I stamped the crab on watercolor paper and colored it with some water base ink from stampin'up. The circle was made with a 1 1/4' circle punch. For the sand I tear the edge of the kraft cardstock and I added some stickles.



I stamped my little frog with some Memento ink and colored it with Copics markers. For the whole, I punched the front panel with a 1 3/8' circle punch and was planing on using a 1 1/4' circle punch for the base of the card but I couldn't reach that far with my punch so I used a smaller circle of my Colluzle cutting system. I used a circle stamp and some cookie crumb ink from Stampin'UP! to stamp around some circles on the front of the card and I than add some stickles to them. The sentiment is adhered with some foam adhesive. I hand drew and cut the little banner and mounted it on a green patterned paper from one of the Amy Tangerine's line.


Go take a look at the rest of the collection and the gorgeous cards my DT colleagues have made! You will find really fun ideas! :)

Now hop over to my friend Renee's blog.


Thanks for stoping by today!!
