Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Let’s Watercolor” and we are featuring the fabulous new Art Impressions Watercolor Minis, Flowers, Foliage, and sentiments!  I’m so glad Bonnie added the sentiments to the line and the new Mini WC sets are so cute!

Today I used the Art Impressions 4875- Garden Wagon Mini Set, 4868- WC Flower Set 2, 4051- Foliage Set, 4867- WC Foliage Set 2 New, and 4903- WC Sentiments Set.

I don’t have the markers that Bonnie uses, but any water-based markers should work fine. I’ve been using my SU! markers since that is what I have in my supply. Here’s the colors that were used on my card.

hoppy Easter

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the 4754 – Hoppy Easter Set.  It has a few bunnies with eggs but it also has this cute little chick.

You may have noticed that my challenge card today has the same patterned paper. I found this piece of 12×12 paper that was cut into squares for a project a few years ago. I guess I thought the leftover pieces were too pretty to toss and left them in a box of unfinished cards.  The colors and fun floral pattern were perfect for my spring cards today.

I brushed some clear Wink of Stella onto the eggs for some sparkle and the chick’s arms & eggs were popped up!

I also have a sketch if you’d like to try this one.  :)

Good morning!  There’s some new stamps for March on the Sweet ‘n Sassy website.  If you haven’t seen them yet, go check them out.  I used a cute new set in the Creative Worship line today called Sing Loud.

I had a few scraps of patterned paper (left from a few projects that you’ll see on my blog later this week) and placed them together for a fun background.  The small banner and bird are popped with foam dimensionals.

Have a great day!

Can you spot the jewel image? With just a few added lines, I turned it into a pencil! ha!

Have a great day and enjoy the remainder of the weekend!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

hello bunny

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with another card using the new Ai Easter set, 4886-Easter Blessings. I love the sweet images in this set and this time I chose the cute bunny relaxing in the flower for my card today.  I wanted this to be a general “hello” card rather than an Easter one so I used the sentiment from 4759- Hello Friend MTF.

I decided to go with another CAS card with some vertical panels, using up a few patterned paper scraps.  It feels good to make use of them!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a CAS card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Pretty Potted Florals and Floral Greetings (for my sentiment) stamp sets from this month’s release.

I kept this clean and simple and used up some scraps of paper.  I pulled the colors from the paper to color with Copics.  The flower petals and pot were stamped again, colored, and popped with foam dimensionals.

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

who says teaching is stressful?

Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Playful People” and we are featuring the fabulous new Art Impressions Work & Play line of clear stamps! This new line is so fun and, of course, hilarious in true Ai style.  I was so excited to see these because my two daughters are a nurse and a teacher, and we have lots of fishermen in the family.  Plus, who doesn’t know someone that loves to golf?  All 4 sets are winners!

Here I used the 4901- Teachers Rule Set.

Easter blessings

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using a new Art Impressions Easter set (which is so darn cute), 4886-Easter Blessings.  This set has 4 sweet bunny images to choose from plus a few extras. I picked one of the smaller images to fit the style of card I was creating.

A good friend of mine recently made one of these Recessed Panel Cards with our local stamping group and I thought it would be perfect to make with this set. I made 2 very similar versions with a change of patterned paper and placement of the sentiment.

The left and right white panels are popped up with foam tape so that the patterned paper panel is “recessed”. This is a fun, easy way to create interest in your card front.

born to be wild

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the 4101- Mad Rider Set.  Here I used this fun lady on her scooter to create a shaker card.  She looks like she is having fun zipping by…I wonder what the cat is thinking?

mad rider 2a diane zechman

I dug through my little container of assorted sequins to get “just the right ones” that would match my card. How fun that was! (not…lol)  I bet you can imagine what it was like…those little pieces can be so static-y…haha!

If you haven’t tried a shaker card, they are a lot of fun.  Well worth fussing with little beads or sequins.  Give it a try!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

so thankful

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Floral Greetings stamp set in the Sweet ‘n Sassy website.  I originally started making this as a black, white, and gray card but decided to give it a pop of raspberry color.  I’m glad I did!

IMG_6368

I colored with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella to make the top butterfly and flower sparkle.  One butterfly was fussy cut and attached near the diecut corner. I have had that set of dies for a while and don’t think I’ve ever used them but it certainly adds to the card!

Have a happy Saturday!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!
