I used Pumpkin, Nectarine, Denim Blue, Royal Blue, Pink Blush, Vivid Pink, Pewter, Black, Mustard, Saffron, Cherry Red, Saddle Brown, Paprika, Amazon Green, Forest Green, Spice Brown, Bark, Yellow Ochre, Espresso, Admiral Blue, Anemone. After coloring I fussy cut the image out.

If you are strapped for time the Kraft Foil paper pad from Bazzill is great to have on hand! It has Kraft cardstock with gold foil in a bunch of different patterns! A great way to have a cool background without the work!!

I picked out the polka dot pattern and added it to a white card base. From a leftover strip, I flipped it over and stamped the sentiment Take Life One Cup at a Time. Then I added it to the card base and then the ladies with foam tape.

Art Impressions Challenge #224

Hello!

It's the second week of Art Impressions Challenge #224 - Feel the Love! AI has new Mansion stamps and Valentine stamps and dies!!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions
My card features the Valentine Mansion and of course the Holiday Mansion set. Both come with matching dies so it makes these cards easy and customable. I started by stamping all the images on watercolor cardstock. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Aqua pencils and watercolor brush to color all the images. With the matching dies I cut everything out, the house just needed some simple fussy cutting!

I picked out some pattern paper from We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard for the background and a different yellowish pattern for the ground.

For the Mansion I added it to white cardstock and trimmed around it, in hind sight I would have used foam tape so I could better add images to the windows, like I wanted but you live and learn!! LOL!!

I stamped the sentiment and cut it out adding it, the Mansion and mailbox to the card. Kept it simple since you can open the doors to see the bear and heart flowers.

I'm on the Art Impressions blog with a card featuring the Elephant Pop Card stamp set! These sets are sooo fun!! A great interactive card anyone would want to receive!

I started by stamping all the pieces, don't forget to stamp the ears twice!! Then I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color everything up. I used AG1, AG3, AG5, AP1, AP3, AP4, DP1, DP3, DP4, IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6. After I used the matching dies to cut everything out.

I'm not going to go into the details on how I assembled everything. You can see this great video that Kate from Art Impression did, it explains everything a lot better then I could!!

I created a window on the card front so you can see the elephant peeking through. First I added a pattern paper to the front and used a rectangle die to cut the window. Then I used a different pattern paper and two dies to create a frame. Then I added the frame to the front.

From white cardstock, I die cut a small rectangle and stamped the sentiment. I added it to the card at the bottom of the window.

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!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions
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! 

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps

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!
