Ai Watercolor Weekend April 1, 2022

 

Hello,

I love this row of bunnies stamp and wanted this to look like they were lined up on the bench and excited for the egg hunt! The row of bunnies is from the stamp set 5116 - Basket of Blessings which is one of my favorite Easter stamp sets. To make this card, stamp the bunnies inked in Tombow N79 which is the most perfect color for animals. Cover them with post it tape then using a stamp positioner, stamp the bench inked in 565 and 969 on the right side, then stamp it again after you clean off the edge you don't need to make it long enough for all the bunnies to fit. Color the bench in with 407 mixed with 177 which really makes the bunnies look white. Stamp the bunny from the 5425 Peeking Animals set. Use 772 for the ears and cheeks of all of the bunnies. Use a fine tip black pen to darken the eyes, noses and whiskers. Stamp the rocks from the 5055 Sitting Places inked in 565 and 969 under the bench so the bunny has something to stand on. Stamp the bush from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 173 and 177. The purple flowers are from the set 5007 inked in 636. Use the larger grass from set 4051 inked in both 173 and 177. Stamp the pink and yellow flowers from the 5009 Mini Flower Set inked in 177, 725 and 026. Use 526 for the sky. The sentiment is from the same set as the row of bunnies and it's cut out with the 5132 Tag Stitched Dies set. Cut the entire thing out with the 5063 Double Stitched Dies Set and use a Waffle Flower Shaker Cover which fits an A2 card size.

Three Bunnies March 17, 2022


Hello and happy St. Patrick's Day!

Yesterday, Bonnie Krebs, Owner/Creator of Art Impressions Stamps did a tutorial on Facebook and here's my version. I needed three bunnies so I could make this for my son Chad and his wife Chrissy who have three sons like I did. Three has always been my favorite number.

Hello,

I definitely need to make some Easter cards, don't you? This was a fun one. You can definitely change it up with any colors and any flowers. To make it, start by using the second largest of the 5065 Oval Dies to cut out the masking paper and stick it to your watercolor paper. You can then use the largest die to cut out your scene afterwards and it will have that pretty white border. Stamp the girl from the 5053 Little Girls Set inked in Tombow 969. Use a pencil to draw the egg under her. Use the stamp positioner to stamp the bunny from the 5425 Peeking Animals Set inked in 969 on her lap. Color the bunny with 969 and his ears and cheeks with 885. Color the girl's hair with 969 and her skin with 850. Her cheek, overall and headband are colored with the 885 but use some Molotow to make the dots first on the headband. Her shirt is 173, The egg is colored with 526 and 173. Use a little 565 for the shadow under the girl. Darken the eyes of the bunny and the girls eyelash with a fine tip black pen. Use the foliage from the 5126 Foliage Set 4 inked in 173 then inked in 177 to make the tree branches above the girl. Use the same colors on the vine from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 to make the leaves on the other side. Use the flowers from the 4868 Flower Set 2 inked in 177 and 885 for the flowers under the egg. Use the flowers from the 5475 Flower Set 6 inked in 526 and 177. They are my most favorite new flower. Awesome set. The sky is 526. I hope you give this one a try and tag me in it if you do.

Sorry For Your Loss March 7, 2022

 


Hello,

I used my Art Impressions stamps to make a sympathy card for a friend. Stamp the vase from the 5123 Ornate Containers Set inked in both 969 and 565. Stamp it off on scrap paper first. Next stamp the design inked in 565 onto the vase. Pull the color out of the lines, then color it with the Tombow 312 pen. Leave a highlight in the middle since the vase would be round. Make a stamp of the vase and cover it so you can stamp the flowers inside. Use the flower from the 5475 Flower Set 6 inked in 177 and yellow 055. Stamp the other flowers from that same set inked in 249 and purple 636. Stamp one on its side below the vase like it fell out. Take the mask off and add some water to the leaves and flowers. Stamp the vine from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 177. Use some blue 565 to add the shadows.
