Hello,

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.

New Release from Art Impressions April 20, 2022

 

Hello,

I hope everyone is as excited as I am for the Ai new releases! This set has four animals planters. So cute and fun to color up. There's an elephant that I can't wait to color up for a "Congrats on your new baby" card. To make this one, stamp the bunny planter from the 5521 Animal Planters Set in Tombow N79. Pull the color out then use N45 on the palette to watercolor some spots on the bunny. His ear, nose and cheek are colored with 873. Use a fine tip black pen to color in his eyes and whiskers. The planter is colored with 565 for the shadows and 177 for the lines. Use the viney flower from the 5474 Flower Set 5 inked in 173 and 755. Use the purple flowers from the same set inked in 665. Stamp the small vine from the 5126 Foliage Set 4 inked in 177. Stamp the tulips from the 5475 Flower Set 6 inked in 177 and 856. Stamp the grass from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 173 then in 177 under the planter and in front of the bunny. The sky is 476. Use the circle die from the 5064 to cut it out and the rectangle die from the 5062 Die Set for the background.

Ai Watercolor Weekend April 15, 2022


Hello,

I wanted to make a whimsical bunny couple on their way to Easter services for this last Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend post before Easter. I penciled in the glasses and bow on him (then used a fine tip black pen) and gave her a flower necklace. To make this, stamp the bunnies from the 4874 Bunnies Set inked in Tombow N79 which is such a great color for animals. Their ears and her cheeks are colored in 772. The flowers around her neck are just the mini dots from the 5009 Mini Flower set inked in 685 and the foliage is also from that same set inked in 192. The little basket is from the 5116 bunny holding the basket but I only inked the basket in the N79. The eggs are colored in with the 192, 685, 772 and 565. I stamped the small grass from 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 192 and then used the same colors as the eggs for the small dots to make the flowers. Stamp the small church from the 5058 Church Set inked in N79. Color the roof and door in 192 and use the fine tip of the Tombow TwinTone blue pen to darken the windows. The trees are inked in N79 and are also from the church set. Their leaves are from the 5372 Mini Foliage Set inked in 685. Stamp the fence from the 5371 Barn Set inked in N79. Use the small grass from the Mini Foliage set inked in 192 along the fence and church. Use 192 on the palette to color in the ground. The sentiment is also from the 5116 set. Use the 5062 Rounded Rectangle Die Set to cut out your paper. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
