Lovely View

I really love that rustic looking window stamp set 4274 from Art Impressions so I made this card and used the Small Container set to add the pots of flowers.  My favorite color is red but my second favorite color is that light aqua color I put on the wooden window covers.  I also love to put animals of any kind in these scenes so I added a bird from the Birds set 4872.

If you haven't tried the Art Impressions watercolor stamps - you SHOULD!  They are so easy and all scaled to go together so the possibilities are endless.  I love creating new scenes by changing out the animals or some other parts or even just by using different colors.  There are new ones coming out soon and I can't wait to get them all!  I love laminating the cards that come with them and then the stamps just cling to them.  I store them in this awesome fridge container from Marshall's.  See below.

Beach Cottage

I made this card using the Art Impressions watercolor stamp set 4606 Cottage by the Beach and Bonnie's favorite pens.   I get most of my supplies from the Art Impressions website.

Ever since I was a little girl (a long, long, time ago) I wanted to go to Hawaii.  I think it was from watching Elvis' Blue Hawaii that made me think it would be paradise.  I made it to my dream vacation thanks to our eldest son, Scott who bought us a package deal for our 25th wedding anniversary.  The place was on the island of Kauai and it truly was paradise!  I'm so grateful to Scott for that amazing week.

Anyway, every summer, I wish I could go back to Hawaii to explore another island and this beach cottage would be a lovely place to stay, wouldn't it?

Watercoloring Fun

July 2017



I'm going to figure out this blog thing. Suggestions welcome.

I made this card using Art Impressions watercolor stamps.  They are the funnest, easiest, best stamps that all work together to make so many different scenes!  I learned how to use them watching Creator Bonnie Kreb's Watercolor Wednesdays tutorials on YouTube.  Check them out.  So much fun!
