I coloured these up a few weeks ago, thinking I'd use them for winter birthdays, but decided to make them into Christmas cards instead. This is "Snow Happy" from the Colorado Craft Company - illustrated by the amazing Anita Jeram.

Each month, Art Impressions features a throwback set - something from years ago that they re-release for just a few days. This is 5868 - Daffodil & Tulip Set from January (there's a new one out this Tuesday... and it's rumoured to be more flowers!). I loved painting this - and went for total spring vibes. Same goes for the paper and ribbon choices when I was assembling my card.

I took this idea from one of the Spellbinders designers, this is the Floral plate that comes with the Betterpress kit, along with the You are Everything Sentiment plate. I used Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Blueprint sketch to ink blend on the cotton cardstock, and used Peacock Feathers again to impress the floral images onto the background.
All supplies were from the Papercrafter's Workshop.

I was thrilled to purchase this Betterpress Plate from the Papercrafter's Workshop this week... and got it pressed as soon as I could! This is the Floral Square Frame from Pinkfresh Studio, pressed onto watercolour paper.

This set was released on the Ai website today, a lovely set with all different kinds of birds - designed by Bonnie's daughter Kim. This is not my favourite card - I'm not quite happy with my execution, the splatters aren't perfect, nor are the hand drawn hearts... but I really love the concept. When I first saw the swans, I had a love/anniversary/valentine type of card in mind. So while it's not my favourite, I wanted to share it in the hopes of inspiring someone else to create something similar.

I decided to make Galentines cards for a couple of girlfriends this year, and have been dying to use this little envelope die from Art Impressions. It's part of 5543 - Journal Template Die Set (one of a ton of dies that come in the set!), and I pulled out two of the Ai Paperpacks, mostly 5741 - Valentines Paper Pack, with a few sheets from 5835 - Mini Journal Paper Pack.
Happy Galentine's Day!
