Love, Love, Love Challenge

The current Art Impressions challenge is "Love, Love, Love" - you guessed it, we want to see your Valentines!  Ai has two newly released sets available on the Ai website, so the Design Team are all sharing projects today to inspire you.  Here are a couple of cards using In The Air Set (Sku #4753):
 These skunks are the cutest little guys to colour and create with!  The set comes with three different main images, some small accent images and three sentiments.  If you scroll down to see my Tuesday post, you'll see the third skunk done with a watercolour background.
 Head on over to the Ai blog to see what the rest of the team is showing us, and be sure to link up your own creation for a chance to win a prize.  Copics used: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, R20, R37, R35, R32, R30, R85, R83, R81.

Watercolour Valentines

 Have you seen the newest Art Impressions release of several Valentine sets??  One of them is a clear acetate set featuring the cutest little skunks, several sentiments and some additional accent images.  I am featuring a couple of cards with the cute skunk couple from In The Air Set (Sku #4753):

 I made a watercolour background using three different distress inks, on some Ranger watercolour paper.  The paper has both a textured side, and a smooth side, so I tried one of each, and don't really have a preference?  They were both easy to work with.  I kept things simple and mounted them onto a plain white card base, added some Baker's twine and popped up the fussy cut image over the sentiment.
Copics used: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, R20

Not One to Brag

This is my second post for today - please scroll down to see my One Crazy Stamper card!
I am having loads of fun colouring up the latest Ai People from Art Impressions  - today I'm sharing a couple of cards using One to Brag Set (Sku #4668):
We actually got a few degrees above zero this weekend, so most of our snow has melted!  It put me in a springy mood... (even though winter is farrrr from over!), so I pulled out some pretty pastel papers that I've had for eons!

There is still time to link up your creation with our "Paper Piecing Party" challenge - and we'll have a brand new one for you on Thursday - we'd love to have you play along over on the Ai blog.  Happy stamping!
Copics used: G46, G43, G41, BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, Y38, Y35, Y32, E31, E34, E37, E79, E77, E75, R85, R83, R81, E53, E51, E11, E00, E000, R20, B02, B01, B00, B000, Y26, Y23, E50

Let's Celebrate!

Happy Groundhog Day!!  Let's hope that he doesn't see his shadow :o)  I spotted these sweet baking themed papers when I was at the One Crazy Stamper store recently, and I knew they'd look great with one of the Vintage Vixens stamps from Art Impressions so here is Six Layer Set:
 The sentiment says: "Let's celebrate the end of bathing suit season with a six layer chocolate cake."  I love it!  I added a large loopy die cut behind her, as well as some tiny baking dies at the bottom.  I used pop dots on the sentiment and the baking bowl for a little dimension.  We started a brand new challenge on the OCS blog yesterday - anything goes, so we hope you'll play along and link up your creations.  There'll be all kinds of inspiration there all month long, so if the groundhog does happen to see his shadow, and we have 6 more weeks of winter... we'll just all have to stay indoors and make cards!  Works for me.

Paper Piecing Party

Our current challenge on the Art Impressions blog is called Paper Piecing Party!  We want to see your paper pieced creations.  I have one of the fun Ai Girlfriend's sets to share today: Cheer Set (Sku #4547):
 It's best to use smaller scale patterns for paper piecing, and even still, I opted to only piece two of their tops, for fear of it getting a bit busy!
 Head on over to the Ai blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has to share with you today, and we hope you'll link up your own creation - there are always wonderful prizes to be won.
