My summer garden inspired the big floral explosion on this card. This was the first time I’ve used these watercolor stamps by Art Impressions. It was very addictive. Watching the bouquets come to life is magical.  Creating depth with a mask. To create the row of stamped pots I made a mask out of the pot and used it to create depth. The first pot I stamped was the third on from the left. After I stamped the middle pot I laid down the mask on top of it and then stamped a pot to the left, overlapping the image a bit. Then I put the mask down on that second pot and stamped the far left, over lapping again.  The pot on the far right was stamped last. Build a bouquet. Using the Art Impressions foliage and flower sets I created the bouquets inside my pots. Layering the branches…

I am Party Puffin obsessed!! Okay, okay, you caught me. Being from Newfoundland, Canada and puffins being our official bird and all, the second I saw the word “puffin” I said “Yes, please!” It’s just icing on the cake that these puffins are in a party mood. You are looking at one of the new products available in the newly released annual Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 catalogue (May 4th release date). This stamp set is called Party Puffins and I can’t get enough of it! I mean, look at that little fish wrapped up in a bow! Am I right? Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I got my hands on some of the new product available including the black and white paper you are seeing here from the Pattern Paper Designer Series Paper pack. This paper actually comes in a pack of 40 pages 12×12”. It has a little bit of…

This new collection of stamps and coordinating dies, called the Hats Off-Line, from Art Impressions is FABULOSA! The new collection has three sets of stamps that include the coordinating dies to make cutting the bits and pieces a breeze. The names of the sets are pretty easy to remember – Miss Set, Mrs. Set, and Mr. Set! PERFECTION! How adorable are all those HATS!!!! Here is a gorgeous little card I found over on the Art Impressions Facebook page created by Tasha Jorgensen. Tasha’s card features the Mrs. Set. LA LA LOVE IT! Pop on over the Art Impressions website for all the details! (PS- do you see those little face mask stamps?!?!?!?) Happy Monday Friends!

Using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush is the absolute easiest way to color detailed stamped images. Adding shading and highlights using this technique has never been easier! I like to use a fine tip waterbrush pen and I dip it in water rather than filling it up with water.  So really you could use a fine tip paintbrush instead! Here is the card I created. I am SERIOUSLY in love with this stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. Cottages are super trendy right now in the crafting world and this is one of my favourite designs. To create this card… Using the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Cottage stamp, stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used Ranger Archival ink so that the ink doesn’t run when I add water. Stamp the image using a stamping platform.  Do not remove the stamp from the platform as you will re-stamp the image once…

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a pretty little card to share today featuring Gateway Dies and the Cascading Wisteria collection from Heartfelt Creations. Here are all of the details. First I used my Heartfelt Creations Gateway dies to cut my layers from white and Luxe Gold Cardstock. To create my card base I folded a piece of white cardstock in half and die cut it using the largest die from the set, making sure to keep the card’s fold intact. I stamped and die cut all of the Wisteria images using Ranger Archival Ink- Coffee onto white cardstock, and added colour to the branches and flowers using Zig Clean Color Markers and a waterbrush. I added colour to the leaves using Ranger Distress Oxide Ink and  Heartfelt Creations Stack and Store Daubers. I shaped all of the flowers and leaves slightly using my shaping tool and…

First off, I bought this stamp set from Stampers Anonymous awhile ago and just haven’t had the chance to play with it.  I finally pulled it out the other night and started to design with it.  I had a smile on my face the entire time. How adorable are those little guys? Am I right or what?! LOLOL! Great job Tim Holtz! I ended up creating a number of little tags that I love! Here are the basic steps to create the tags 1. Using a Scrapbook.com Nesting Tag die and reinforcement circle, cut out a tag from a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. 2. Place your tag in your stamp positioner along with the little bunny stamp. 3. Using a post-it note, cover up the sentiment on the bottom of the stamp so it doesn’t stamp on the tag. 4. Ink the stamp with Ranger Archival ink and…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here! Have you ever thought about how you start a layout? Are you consistent or do you mix it up? I mix it up! Sometimes I love to start with a sketch or a particular photo may inspire me and sometimes I like to choose the product first. The project I’m sharing today was all about using my stash of Stampers Anonymous stamps! Please note…no patterned paper was harmed in the process! I pulled out a sheet of CSM Super Stock [primed with a thin layer of gesso] and brayered on some with some Distress Inks. I love the texture the brayer creates! I then removed some of the ink with a stencil and baby wipe.Next, I layered on some stamps of various patterns. This process of making a background is so fun and very relaxing. In the wise words of Seth Apter…if you don’t love…

I am obsessed. You scream I scream, everybody wants ice cream! Stampin’ Up!’s new Ice Cream Corner Collection is adorable and I can’t stop playing with it! The collection comes with the Sweet Ice Cream stamp, Ice Cream Cone Builder punch, Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper, Blackberry Bliss ribbon, and the super sweet Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles. You can actually create projects with a stamp or simply use the images from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper as I have in the card below. I love this kind of versatility. It’s a bonus that the images look like watercoloured delicious-ness. Of course, you can also use the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set for a simple tag as can be shown here. While I didn’t, you can use the Ice Cream Builder punch to pop off the images and create dimension on any of your projects. I love the…
