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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Peaceful Peonies stamp set from this month’s release.  I also used some butterflies from Floral Greetings.

The flower was stamped onto the background and then stamped again onto white cardstock, colored with Copics, and layered over the tag.  The butterfly has only one wing attached so it flutters off the card a bit.  I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly and flower center.

Have a great day!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

Are you keeping warm? I am staying inside so far…doing some laundry and a little bible journaling on this cold, windy weekend.  A music video that was shown in the beginning of a recent worship service was the inspiration for today’s page.  This page was done with the song “Magnify” by We Are Messengers in mind on Psalm 119:18.

Psalm 119 18 diane zechman

I traced the detective from a Googled image and colored him with Inktense pencils.  The background was sponged with Distress inks and the words were printed with some detective-y fonts I found- Fingerprints Inside and Earwig Factory.

I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Worthy King, Sing Loud, and Music To My Ears stamp sets.

Have a great weekend!
