Hi Everybody, Cathie Allan here today to share with you a card I made for myself. Yes …. for me! I love making these types of cards because it allows me to get my photos off of my phone or my computer and share them by displaying some of my favorites in my home.  I make cards like this all year but most of them “go away” to a new home as I am always creating them for someone’s birthday, graduation, wedding etc. How I love creating one of a kind, very personal cards … I tend to always add photos in my cards …. for my special peeps but today …. that special peep is “me”. This “Me card” focuses on some amazing photos sent to me of my youngest “Grandhandsome son” Max. They simply could not just be on my phone …. they needed to be out and…

Art  Impressions stamps capture real life for so many women. The confident ladies strutting their stuff in the Girlfriends Make the Best Accessories stamp reminds me of me and my friends when we go for lunch. I wanted to make the ladies a bit glitzy so I used the paper piecing technique on their sunglasses and purses. A little glitter goes a long way! I also tried something different for me, I applied Ranger Tim Holtz Oxide inks onto foiled Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates paper. It turned out really well. The inked and foiled background looks like a Vegas night sky. Here’s how I created this look: 1. Stamp the Art Impressions Girlfriend stamp on watercolor paper and fussy-cut the ladies. 2. Stamp the Ranger Oxide Inks on a non-porous surface and add water, using a paintbrush paint your stamped image 3. Stamp the image a second…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with two cards featuring  the Art Impressions Succulents stamps and dies set.  These stamps are so pretty and succulents are so trendy right now! I stamped them with Ranger Archival Black Ink , coloured them with Chameleon pens. Next I cut them out with the coordinating dies and stuck everything together with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares are perfect for adding dimension to a row of succulents.  I put a coat of Glossy Accents on a few of the flowers to add some gloss and dimension and dabbed some Stickles glitter glue on some of the foliage.  Small details but it’s the little things that make cards extra special. The background patterned paper is from this wood and gingham basics paper pad from Simple Stories.  This paper pad is HUGE and has awesome colors and patterns. Thanks for…

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of Christmas cards featuring the Christmas Carolers Art Impressions stamp set.  Where I live, the days are very short right now as we approach the winter solstice and I like to keep busy during the long evenings.  One of my favourite things to do is putz around with my craft supplies and make cards.  I often listen to an audiobook while I am crafting.  It’s a great way to multi-task if you can ‘read’ and create at the same time.  Forgive the artificial light on these photographs – as I mentioned, the days are short and it is dark when I go to work and dark when I come home.Here’s the stamp set I used.  I notice that it’s no longer available from the Art Impressions website, but you can buy it from many other retailers.  Alternatively, Art Impressions has other beautiful…

Can you smell it …. can you feel it ….. ? Fall is here and that means Christmas is right around the corner. Oh, for a card/tag maker this is the “funnest” time of the year. Break out ALL your Christmas stamps and your favorite mediums and create until the reindeer fly. This is what I have started my “Christmas card/tag journey” with, for 2019. I pulled out 3 of my favorite “Art Impressions”,  Christmas sets then pulled out some of my favorite mediums, some paint, fiber, and ribbon. First I stamped and colored my images. Yes, because I love the light fastness of pigment ink I pulled out my “VersaFine” quick-dry pigment ink and stamped the images that I wanted to color. Coloring was easy with my artist quality pencil crayons and I used Gamsol to blend. Now for the tag background …. this was easy & crazy quick!…

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…
