Art Impressions Challenge #213 - I'll Text You


There's still a week left to play along with Art Impression Challenge #213. The challenge is called I'll Text You and the challenge is to use text only!!

For my card, I kept it some one simple!! It definitely helped that I had a MISTI!! So much that I had enough sentiments to make two cards!!

So I pulled a few colored card stock from my scrap bin and then pulled a ton of AI birthday stamp sets!! I can't find my list of sets used, but really just go to your AI stash and use as many as you can for this challenge!!

I stamped the sentiments on the scraps with watermark ink and then embossed them in white. The MISTI helped stamp multiple sentiments at once along with stamping them on different colored card stock too!

Then I just used some scissors and trimmed the sentiments into squares and rectangles. I pulled out two white card bases and started adhering the sentiments on the cards. Some hung over the edges and some didn't, I trimmed any that hung over.

Since my card fronts were all sentiments I decided to do a basic image on the inside of each card. So I stamped an AI cake and sentiment below. With my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored the cake, making sure my colors matched my colored cardstock! I just trimmed the stamped panel to a rectangle and adhered it to the inside of both cards!

Super easy and a great way to use up those scraps!! I hope you will play along with us at the Art Impressions challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by!!



  1. Wow this is incredible!! Lots of work and heat embossing but looks really cool!
