Happy Birthday Hydrangeas December 19, 2019


Hello,

I am not good at coloring flowers but after watching a different method thanks to Bonnie Krebs - the owner/creator or Art Impressions Stamps #watercolorwednesday video on YouTube, I was excited to try this one! I actually love how it came out and I can't wait to try this method with all of my flower stamps, now. I agree with Bonnie about liking my coloring fast and easy. This stamp set 5229 - SBC Exclusive Hydrangeas Set is only available at Scrapbooks.com. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from this same stamp set and don't you love that font? I will be using all of the sentiments on my future cards. I used Tombow 379 for my flowers but the other colors are the same ones Bonnie used in her tutorial.  Give it a try!

Sparkle December 14, 2019


Hello,

I made this card using Art Impressions stamps and dies then watercolored it with Tombow pens.  Instead of using a white pen for the snow, I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen which sparkles.  I love the dimension the pompom adds to the little girl's hat.  I painted a checkered pattern on the little girl's scarf but didn't like it so I painted it with green and it really came out dark but I like it.

Poinsettia Set from Art Impressions and Scrapbook.com




Hello,

Bonnie Krebs, Art Impressions owner/creator designed this large, beautiful 5209 - SBC Exclusive Poinsettia set which is available exclusively from Scrapbooks.com. I stamped the image in versa mark and then heat embossed it with Wow Metallic Platinum Sparkle Embossing Powder. The pictures do not do justice to the brilliant shine.  I watercolored the poinsettias first using Ranger Distress ink in candy apple on a palette. After the poinsettias were dry, I used 757 to make the darker areas.  I used 249 on the holly leaves and then after they dried, I added 026 to the holly. I watercolored the berries in 827 and after they dried, I added 606 to darken them. I used the 5063 - A2 Rectangle Double Stitched dies to cut out the picture and the frame around it. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and cut out the banner for it from the 5133 - Banner Dies.

Watercolor Weekend December 7, 2019





Hello,

My favorite artist Bonnie Krebs, Art Impressions owner/creator designed this large, beautiful 5209 - SBC Exclusive Poinsettia set which is available exclusively from Scrapbooks.com. I love using the sentiments on all of my Christmas cards. I made this one by stamping the wreath in Memento Desert Sand on Bristol smooth paper. I watercolored the poinsettias first using Ranger Distress ink in candy apple on a palette. I didn't use the usual #4 brush, I used the #1 brush as the images are pretty small. After the poinsettias were dry, I used 757 to make the darker areas. I used 993 on the centers of the poinsettias then after they dried, I added 026 for the darker areas. I used 249 on the holly leaves and then after they dried, I added 026 to the holly. I watercolored the berries in 827 and after they dried, I added 606. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the wreath using leaf green Archival ink. I stamped the sentiment on the inside with the same ink. I cut out the circle using the 5064 - Circle Double Stitched Dies and cut out a frame for it of that rose gold die paper. I cut out the background pieces using the A2 Rectangle Double Stitched Dies.

Winter Scene December 4, 2019


Hello,

I just made this card for the Simon Says Stamp Instagram Winter Challenge.  Instagram has the most wonderful card making community!  Make something with a winter theme and use the hashtag #sssigchallenge and you could win $50 in supplies from SSS. I used my Art Impressions stamps to make this scene. I stamped the tractor first, watercolored it then I masked it off and stamped the barn.  I watercolored it and then I stamped the mountains and pulled the color out of the lines, the way Bonnie Krebs, owner/creator of Ai does on her Watercolor Wednesday tutorials on YouTube.  I stamped the little boy and watercolored him then cut out the scene with my A2 Rectangle Dies.

Day 17 of #thedailymarker30day Coloring Challenge


Hello,

Its Day 17 of the fabulous Kathy Racoosin's coloring challenge. It's half way over but you can still participate. Just spend some time coloring using your favorite method, take a picture of it, and then post it on your social media with the hashtag #thedailymarker30day.

I am still having fun with my favorite new stamp set from Art Impressions 5197 - WC Winter Kids Set. You can change the colors to change the entire look! This would make a cute winter birthday card. I usually don't add the sentiment to the inside until I decide who the recipient will be. I watercolored the image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper - my favorite paper! The colors just blend so nicely on it. I used some Penny Black dies from Scrapbook.com for the background. The A2 die for the striped background is from Art Impressions.
