The card front has a bookshelf image with a die cut opening, which reveals portions of the other images inside!  The second panel has more books…

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!

I made a Gate Fold card and added some layers to the front…the top layers are attached to the left side and the bottom layers are attached to the right.  I started with 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock and scored @ 2 1/8 and 6 3/8.

My top layers are 1 3/4 x 4, 1 1/2 x 3 3/4, and 1 1/4 x 3 1/2.

My bottom layers are 3 1/2 x 4, and 3 1/4 x 3 3/4.

celebrate big

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Fly High stamp set from this month’s release.

celebrate big diane zechman

I decided to make a tall card with the balloons flying up and then I thought I’d add the elephant hanging off the bottom. The balloons were paper pieced and I added Crystal Effects to make them shiny.

This card measures 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 (start with 7 x 6 1/4) and fits into a regular No. 8 envelope.  Most of us have those lying around to pay an occasional bill so why not use them to make a different size card?

Have a great day!

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.

hello girl decofoil diane zechman

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!

painted flowers

Good morning!  Today I have a card that was “just for fun” using Altenew’s Painted Flowers set that I picked up at The Craft Shack.  I’ve loved this set since it was first released. It is so pretty with it’s painted look!  The sentiment is an older wood block from Penny Black.

painted flowers 1 diane zechman

Each flower was stamped in 2 colors plus the black outline (3 layers) so making a set of 4 cards took a bit of time but was well worth it. The Misti tool makes it so easy!

Have a great Wednesday!

an anniversary card

Good afternoon!

Just popping in to share a card I recently made for an anniversary. The pretty flowers from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Floral Greetings set are perfect for the occasion!

floral greetings anniv diane zechman

I stamped one of the flowers a few times for the background and kept it black & white. Then I stamped, colored, and cut out a single flower from the cluster and popped it up with dimensionals. The center of the flower has some clear Wink of Stella and I added a few tiny drops of Pale Gold Nuvo Drops around it.

Have a great day!

shout of His glory

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Sing Loud stamp set from the Creative Worship line.

sing loud 2 diane zechman

This little bird seemed to beg for some bright, fun patterned papers so I used up some scraps I had and layered them behind a leftover piece of black with a circle window in it. Sometimes those scraps come in handy!  The word Glory was also stamped on some scrap paper and cut out.

Have a great day!

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!
