Have you seen the new 5522 Country Village Stamp set from Ai? There are two stamps in the set and I combined them to make a slim line card. It will be fun to make this in the winter for a Christmas card.
I made this card like the packaging on this new Art impressions 5522 Country Village Stamp Set. I used the trees and grass from the 5372 Mini Foliage Set and the fence from the 5371 Barn Set. The colors are a little bit different than the packaging but you could use whatever colors you want or have to use.
Have you seen the new 5520 SW Village Set? It's a must have! I used it along with the new 5525 SW Simple Scene to create this card. I stamped the scene first after inking it in Tombow 969 and then in 565 and stamping off first. Next, I stamped the little village inked the same way. Then I stamped the cactus inked in 177. I pulled the color out of all the lines then added some 925, 969, 565, 947, & 177 on the palette to give the mountains, rocks, village and road some color. I mixed a lot of the colors and tried to make the right facing sides darker on all of the houses. I used 249 to darken areas of the cactus. The foliage is from the 5196 Desert Set inked in 026. The sky was colored in streaks of 555 and 569. I used the TwinTone fine point blue to darken the windows. I used both the blue and brown TwinTone fine points to put back some of the lines that were washed out. I used the 5062 Rounded Rectangle Dies to cut out the watercolor paper and background paper. Hope you give this a try!
Have you seen the brand new 5546 - Exclusive Ai Stamp Set available only at Simon Says Stamp? It's so cute with lots of great sentiments. I watercolored these up using Tombow Pens after stamping them in Memento London Fog ink for that no line look. The flowers are from my favorite 5475 WC Flower Set 6. That fifth bunny is from the 4874 Bunnies Set because my Mom-in-law has 5 bunnies, oops, I mean kids and I thought she would love that card for Mother's Day. The tag would be great for one of my sons or grandsons. Don't have regret by missing out of this exclusive set as it will surely sell out fast!
Have you seen the Art Impression's tutorial by Kendra Krebs on Facebook using these brand new 5519 Mini Critter Pots? So fun!

Did you catch the tutorial on Facebook yesterday by our Queen Bee, Bonnie Krebs, Owner/Creator of Art Impressions? It was so fun. This new house in set 5524 Cape Cod Houses is so pretty colored up with flowers and trees. Try it out!
How wonderful are these Cape Cod houses and Village new stamps from Ai? I love them. One of these days, my husband Tad and I are supposed to go explore the upper Eastern coast. If you would like to make this card, stamp the house from the 5524 Cape Cod Houses Set inked in Memento London Fog ink. The fence is from the 5473 Seagull Set inked the same way, then colored with Tombow 992 and a little N45. Use a ruler and pencil to draw the water line. Use the pencil to draw in the sand line. Use the pencil to draw rocks on the chimney, shutters on the windows and lines on the roofs. Draw a flag pole and flag with the pencil then color the blue in with the 526 and 856 for the red stripes. Stamp the dots from the 5009 Mini Flower set inked in 856. The foliage is from the same set inked in 249. I drew little pots under the porch flowers using the pencil then colored them with N45. Use the grass from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 249 by the fence and around the bottom of the house. Use the dots and 856 and 569 to stamp flowers above the grass. Use 992 to color the sand and 569 to color the water. The sky is colored with 526. The birds are stamped from the 5473 Seagull Set inked in 569. Color the shutters, door and roofs with N45. Use a fine tip black pen to draw lines on the shutters. Use 992 to color the house. Use the blue TwinTone fine tip to color in the windows. Use 569 to add shadows under the eaves of the house and under the flowers and fence. Cut it out with the 5062 Rounded Corner Rectangle Dies.
