Watercolor Weekend October 20, 2018




Hello Watercolor Friends,

Who doesn't love a tree house? My son Scott has been promising to build my granddaughters a tree house and I know they would love it! I created this card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend  using the tree from the brand new 5056 - WC Fairy Doors Set and a cabin from the 4963 - WC Rustic Cabins Set. The pine trees in the background are from the 5010 - WC Tree Set 1. The flowers are from the 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set. I drew the ladder in using the sepia marker.

5056 - WC Fairy Doors Set

5009 - WC Mini Flower Set

Watercolor Weekend October 6, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

I was blessed with three sons and three grandsons.  So the inspiration for my card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend is a Fall fishing scene with my three grandsons - Conor, Caide and Charlie, using the brand new 5054 - WC Little Boys Set.  Both the little boys and little girls are must have sets!  I used the bucket and log from the brand new 5055 - WC Sitting Places Set for two of the boys to sit on.  The trees are from the 5010 - WC Tree Set 1 and the 4960 - WC Fir Tree Set.  I used the grass and tree foliage from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1. I made the fishing poles from the 4964 - WC Branches Set.

Watercolor Weekend September 15, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

I used two of the little girls from Art Impression's brand new 5053 - WC Little Girls Set to make my card for the bi-monthly Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend Roundup. This scene is reminiscent
of my own granddaughters in their yard. I put one of the girls inside the 4703 - Flower Cart. She would be pink loving Brinley, the youngest, and the older one in the hat, would be Aubrey, my awesome softball player. Their blue house on the hill is from the 4961 - WC Mini Cottages Set. The flowers in the cart are from the 5008 - WC Flower Set 3 and the "lavender" on the ground is from the 4875 - Garden Wagon Mini Set.  The grass is from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1.  Ai has just come out with the greatest steel dies in all the usual shapes and sizes perfect for card making!  I used the 5062 - Rounded Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies to make my card.

Bookmarks & Tags August 30, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

Be sure and join in on the new Art Impressions Bookmarks & Tags challenge on the Ai blog. You could win a stamp set of your choice and there are a lot of wonderful new stamps now available!

My tag for this launch was made using the tractor from the brand new 5059 - WC Harvest Set. My oldest son who lives on five acres in Colorado, actually has chickens and an old blue tractor. This would be the perfect tag to put on a present for him. I used the chicken from the 4207 - Feathers TF stamp set. The flowers are from 4868 - WC Flower Set 2.

The bookmark was created with my best friend in mind. Her name is Jamie and she goes by J. She loves to read and her daughter has blonde hair. I'm sure she will love it!  I used the brand new 5053 - WC Little Girls Set.  It's probably my favorite stamp set from this new release!  The stool she is sitting on is from another one of the new sets 5055 - WC Sitting Places.  The letter J is from another must have 5071 - WC Serif Letters Set. The flowers are from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set.
