I started by stamping the squirrel and nets along with the Nuts About You sentiment. With my Spectrum Noir markers, I color the image and then fussy cut it out. I used dr1, EB1, EB2, EB5, EB6, TN9.

From some Crate Paper paper pad Kiss Kiss, I die cut a heart out of a text pattern, I also trimmed a heart pattern for my card base. I added the heart pattern and then the text heart dies to card base. From kraft, I trimmed a strip and added it to the card with foam tape.

I added the squirrel and nuts so it looks like he is sitting on the kraft. With a small heart, I die cut the sentiment and added it to with foam tape. Last I added some wood dots.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Art Impressions Challenge #223 - Anything Goes

Hello!

It's the second week of Art Impressions Challenge #223! Anything goes so no excuses!! February is right around the corner so I thought a Valentine card is appropriate!

I used the Windows to the World Valentine Mail, stamping it on watercolor paper. Then I used Distress Markers to watercolor the image.

From pattern paper, I die cut a big heart. To the right, I stamped Happy Valentine's Day from the In The Air set. Then I trimmed the window panel to fit and adhere it to the card base.

The heart panel is added over the window and adhered with foam tape. I also added a small twine bow and heart sticker to the right edge of the heart window.

Cold Noses Warm Hearts

Hello!

Happy New Year!!! I'm on the Art Impressions blog today! Since it's so cold out I thought this card was fitting for this time of year. My card features the snow couple from Merriest Christmas

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps
I started by stamping the couple and then using my Spectrum Noir Markers to color it. I used AG1, AG3, AP1, AP2, AP3, BT7, BO4, BT9, CR8, CR10, EB5, EB6, GY1, GY2, IG2, IG6, IG9, RB1, RB2, RB3. When I was done coloring cut the image out with a circle die.

Next, I stamped the sentiment next to the light post. From my stash, I found some wooden snowflakes and used Marvy Snow Maker for the first time! It is soo cool! You color the snowflake or image with the white ink (but not too much!), then hit it with a heat gun!! It just poofs up!

On some grey cardstock, I stamped and embossed the snowflake that is on the stamp set. I used some glitter embossing powder so the snowflakes have a nice sparkle to them!

Last I added the stamped circle to the card base with foam tape. Then I added the snowflakes. Oh and can't forget to round the corners!
