You Rule! by Dana Warren

Hello, AI fans!! 

It's Back to School time of year, whether it's grade school, high school or college, lots of students are going back to school soon! (I'm one of them! But my first day isn't until August 28th! I had classes over the summer that ended this past week so I am now enjoying my 2-week summer vacation!!)

AI's Teacher Rule clear set is the perfect Back to School stamp set! Send a note to a new or experienced teacher! 

I started with some red pattern paper and a ruler stencil by Tim Holtz. I used Black Soot Distress Ink to ink two rulers. I had originally inked four rulers across a panel, but as I put my card together decided to trim the panel so the white card base would show. 

Next, I stamped the standing teacher and then colored her with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used BP1, BT3, BT4, BT5, CR7, CR11, EB5, EB6, GT2, GT3, JG4, TN3, TN5, TN7, PP2, PP4, PP5, PP6.   Then I fussy cut her out.

I added the two stenciled rulers to the left side of a white card base and then stamped the You Rule sentiment at the top right corner. With foam tape, I added the teacher.

This stamp set is also good during the school year and at the end of the school year. Happy Stamping!!

Baseball Set by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I'm sharing a couple of cards made with one of the new Get Well stamp sets - here is Baseball Set (Sku #4904):
 These are fairly quick and fun - I let the patterned paper do the talking.
 These are just a little larger than a regular A2 sized card - I made them 6" x 4 3/4".  That oval die is a pretty good size, and I wanted to see more of the patterned paper.  I coloured them with my Copic markers and cut the sentiment into a speech bubble before adhering it with Pop Dots.
 Copics used - Skin tones: E11, E00, E000, E34, E31, R30, R20
Hair: Y26, Y23, E50, E18, E07, E02
Blues: B97, B95, B93, B91, B02, B01, B000, B0000
Oranges: YR07, YR04, YR02, YR00
Greys: W5, W3, W1
Browns: E55, E53, E51

chews to party by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
Today I am sharing a card using the AICS37 Old Goat Set from the Funny Farm line.  Bonnie hit it with the cute goats and I love the sentiment...

The top banner is popped up on the side and I diecut a cute striped frame to showcase him. I know how much goats like to jump on top of things and this guy looks like he gets into all kinds of mischief, doesn't he? lol.
Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!

Dance like no one's watching! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing another of the dance teacher cards I made this year.
This one features the super hilarious 3580 – Dancers Set from Art Impressions Girlfriends line.

This card was for Sue, the office manager, who has a fun side. I thought this would be perfect for her.

We always joke that the moms should do a dance.  Maybe this will be me someday! NOT!! Trust me, NO ONE wants to see THAT!
