welcome little one

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using one of the new Art Impressions Mini TryFolds4852- Welcome Little One MTF.  This set is one of my absolute favorites…it is just adorable!

The set includes two dies to cut out the openings in the two layers of the tri-fold card, allowing for a sneak peek of the images inside.  The largest image (the crib here) goes on the outside of the card.

When the second fold is opened, you see the sweet little sleeping baby.

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using one of the new Art Impressions Work & Play line of clear stamps…this one is 4899- Proud Nurse Set.  I’m sure many of us know a nurse who can totally relate to this!

crutches, anyone?

Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Wish You FELT Better” (use felt on your project) and we are featuring the fabulous new Art Impressions People stamp sets.

Today I used the 4865- Crutches Set.  These new “Get Well” style of people sets are so fun!

crutches diane zechman

The top of the crutches have an animal print drawn on them so I pulled out some wild purple animal patterned paper for my background.  It goes pretty well with the sentiment too!

Since the challenge is to use felt somewhere on the card, I stamped the foot bandage image with black Stazon ink onto some white felt, cut it out, and adhered it with Scor-Tape.

hello girl

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

This week on the Art Impressions blog  we are doing another product swap with Thermoweb!  Today I have a card to share using the Ai 4403- Boy & Girl Mini Set and the 4536- Boy & Girl Mini Dies.  I also used the following products by Thermoweb:  Decofoil foam adhesive, Gold Foil Transfer Sheets, and Zots Bling Adhesive Dots.

I had fun die cutting a little circle frame for the girl from the foam adhesive. I also cut the sentiment die from the foam and applied the gold foil to both.  For a few accents, I adhered some tiny glue dots and more gold foil!

Ai and Thermoweb pair well for some crafty fun, for sure!

fill ‘er up

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Ai Hobby Lobby Set- AiCS32 Hot Java Mama.  If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, it is also available on the Ai website!

fill er up diane zechman

I am not a coffee drinker but I do like to make coffee themed cards.  I just love that “fill ‘er up” sentiment and it fit perfectly on my cardstock tab!  I stamped her onto a wonky panel because a lot of us feel a bit like that in the morning, right?  I paper pieced her a heart patterned nightgown and gave her a blue robe (haven’t we all had a blue robe at some point in life?).

Grab some caffeine, wake up, enjoy your day, and… happy stamping!

Matthew 11:28

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a different project than I normally make with my Ai images. I started bible journaling a year ago and I’ve had Ai’s Madge (1549) in mind all year to use for the Matthew 11:28 verse…“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11 28 close diane zechman

Madge is perfect for this verse…she illustrates how we all, at times, feel.  We simply need to put our trust in Him.  He gives what no one else can give- rest from our daily problems and the burden of our sins.

I stamped Madge with Stazon Black ink (no page prep done) and colored her with Prismacolor pencils, blending them with Gamsol. She was stamped again onto patterned paper and I cut out her shirt to paper piece it. I also used a small scrap of the same paper to make a little “tab” at the top of the page.

Here’s my full page… I also used used the following Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets.

All Your Heart, Decorative Banners, Words of Life- Common Words 1, Words of Life- Collection 1, Perfect Faith, Message of Hope.

I hope you liked this different Ai project today and it inspires you to try some bible journaling too!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

wear it in style

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the 4373- Birthday Hat Set.

wear it in style diane zechman

This lady is another Ai image that is fun to paper piece…her dress is perfect for it and so easy to do!  I decided to put her in a black & white dress and let the cake and her accessories be pops of color.

Have a great day and… happy stamping!
