Pain in the Rear!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I made a bit of a different card. It's called a swing card. I'm using the "Bloomer" set and an action wobble on her behind. 
This time the papers are from the Echo Park Party Time 6x6 collection. A few YNS Gumdrops in the corners and a bow finished off my card.

Not only will her behind wiggle and wobble but the card will swing open to show her other side. I inked all the edges of the paper with Vintage Distress ink for an added look.
I just love that sentiment and it's included in the set along with one action wobble. I decided to cut the sentiment carefully into bits so that I stamp it to fit inside my SSS Talk Bubble.

Here you can see the action wobble.

 Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20, RV17, B01
Jacket and curlers: RV32, RV34, RV17
Top and Bloomers: BG13, BG15, BG18

Happy Stamping!

Happy Meol-oween!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the second week over on the Art Impressions Blog of our "Too Cute To Spook" Challenge! We want to see your Halloween creations! 
Halloween cards are one of my favourites to make! There are always such cute images and paper to work with! My card today is featuring the newly released "Meol-oween" set! This adorable set has 4 images and 5 sentiments that come with it. Wow... great value for your money!
I decided to use my MFT Peek-a-boo die and cut out a window of sorts to display a few of the images. I fussy cut the 2 cats with the pumpkin and popped them up with some foam squares. The paper and ribbon are from my stash and a few enamel dots finish off my card!
I also popped up the the circle images for some added dimension as well
Here's the inside and another one of the sentiments!
