I die cut the jumbo tag from white card stock and again from some chipboard. I don't buy chipboard, instead save it from cereal boxes or packaging!

On the card stock i stamped Crafter's Companion Sheena Douglass Monarch Butterfly stamp with versamark ink several times on the tag. I used a copper embossing powder and heat embossed the butterflies. I colored the butterflies with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens, Smoke Quartz, Harvest Moon, Soft Jade, Blue Topaz.

Next i stamped the Friends sentiment from the Kimono Lotus Flower stamp set. I trimmed it to a strip and then notched one end at an angle. I added it to the tag with foam tape.

Then i just used double sided tape to adhere the card stock tag to the chip board tag. Last i used some brown ribbon to finish it off!

Hello!!

I'm popping in with a card featuring paper piecing!! Art Impression has a challenge going on right now called Paper Piecing Party, i hope you will get your paper piecing on and play along with us!!

I started by picking out a 6 x 6 pattern paper pad, that way i know everything matches. I stamped the lady in a big coat form the Hobby Lobby exclusive clear stamp set Dare to Be Fabulous, many times on different patterns.

I stamped her one more time on white card stock and after fussy cutting all the pieces i adhered them on the white image. Then i used my Spectrum Noir markers to color her skin and hair. Next i fussy cut her out of the white card stock.

Next i dry embossed a flowery pattern and adhered it to a white card base. I cut a strip of another pattern and added it across my card.

Then i cut a stitched oval from white card stock and then stamped the Dare To Be Fabulous sentiment from the stamp set on the oval. Last i added the lady with foam dots. I decided against enamel dots or sequins because it was already busy enough with the patterns and the embossing!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope to see you play along with us at the Art Impressions Paper Piecing Party Challenge!!

When i plan to paper piecing i pick out a 6 x 6 paper pad and use patterns from that pad. This way everything matches!! For this card i stamped Celeste one a couple didn't patterns and fussy cut out the couch and her pants. And of course i stamped the image on white card stock.

I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color her skin, hair, jewelry and wine. Then adhered the pattern paper to the couch and pants. Since her top already has an animal print i just colored it tan.

Ahh!

Hello AI Fans!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog with a card featuring one of the new AI People sets! I paired the Ahh Set with a stenciled background! Using stencils can help if you cant find matching pattern papers!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions

I started by stamped the Ahh women and then i used Copic markers to color her. Then i fussy cut her out leaving a small white border around her. 

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions

Next i placed a stencil over a white card base, using washi tape to secure it. Then i used the same copic markers that i used to color the women, to color in some of the spaces of the stencil. The ink of the marker will bleed a little, but i like the look!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions

Next i cut a strip of white card stock and adhered it to the card base. At the right side i stamped the Ahh! sentiment. I added the women with foam tape and last a few sequins!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

With Love

Hello!

Happy Tuesday!! Did you have a long weekend? If you did, it was great, right!! I got a lot of crafting done and some studying!!

Today i'm sharing a valentinish card with you! It dosen;t mention valentine's day, but it could work for the holiday!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Crafter's Companion
I started with a white card base and i placed the Sheena Douglas Wildflowers stencil over the bottom part of the card. Then i used Black Soot Distress Ink and an ink applicator to lightly color the in the stencil. I wanted the first layer to be grey, so i was light on the application. Then i moved the stencil down a little and inked it again, but this time with a heavier hand to color in the stencil black.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Crafter's Companion

Next i flipped the stencil and placed it over the top part of the card and did the same stencil i did for the bottom of the card. Then i cut two thin strips of black card stock and adhered them to the top and bottom of the card.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Crafter's Companion

For some color, i stamped and then cut out a few Anemone flowers from white card stock. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the flowers and leaves. I used CG2 DG2, DG3, DR1, DR5, DR6.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Crafter's Companion
From my stash i found some gold, glitter brads and after punching a hole in the center of each flower, i layered the petals to create two flowers. I used some liquid glue to adhere the flowers and leaves to the card. Last i stamped the With Love sentiment from the Stamp It Australia Dreamy Daisies stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
