Art Impressions make stamps full of whimsy and humor that allow me to create individualized cards that leave the recipient with a smile and a giggle.  To create this set of cards I combined the Art Impressions stamp “stress, chaos, and mayhem” (#4158)With Amy Tangerine watercolor paints by American Crafts Simples Stories, “I Am” collection Glue Dots Adhesives Chameleon Detail Pen Here are the details on how I created these cards. Watercolor your lady. Stamp the ‘tired’ lady on watercolor paper with permanent ink. This prevents the ink from bleeding when you wet the paper and add paint. I used Amy Tangerine’s watercolor set to paint my ladies. It has a good assortment of colors that can be mixed to create even more colors. To achieve the graduated watercolor effect I used the wet-on-wet technique. I fill in an area (like the pants) with a thin layer of water. Then I…

Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp. I stamped it to the left side of a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. My sentiment was stamped separately and cut with a circle punch. I colored the image with my NEW Chameleon Fineliner Pens, I adore them! Like their big sisters, the Chameleon Pens, the Fineliners can provide tonal, colour transitions like magic! Think how beautiful your journals and planners can be! Here, however I have coloured my image using dots and lines – it is such a FUN way to colour smaller images! I’ve added a narrow strip of patterned paper to…

Hello, dear Creative Scrapbookers! I am Jayme Loge –  a writer for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and I am delighted to provide some inspiration for you today as I play with my Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper and Alcohol inks!

Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol ink Yupo paper and alcohol inks were at the top of my list to play with, and I had a lot of fun creating some simple cards with cool alcohol ink backgrounds.

Happy Summer everyone, Cathy Caines here today playing with the Wildly Happy Cling stamp set by Stampin’ Up! It seems that I have some news to share! My family and I are so excited to announce to the world that we are growing our family with baby number three coming soon in January!
