Verve Inspiration challenge

I am happy that the Verve Inspiration challenge is back!  It's been on hiatus for a while, and though I didn't always get to play along, I followed it religiously every month in the past.  So tonight I decided to play with my oxide inks, and was inspired to use the Freshly Made Sketch for my design.  I went with a couple of different greens, and started out with white mugs like the inspiration photo, but ended up painting them to give them a little more life:
Distress Oxide Inks are Lucky Clover & Twisted Citron; Stamp sets are Borderline, One Cup and Simply Amazing by Verve; Verve pastel sequin mix.

Gardening card #2

Here's the second of my Gardening Cards... using the newly released Art Impressions Work & Play set: Gotta Garden (Sku #5000):

I loved using the pretty gingham & floral papers for this one, and dug out some floral ribbon that I've had kicking around for a while to finish it off.

Gardening card

Art Impressions just released their new Work & Play sets, including the fun Gotta Garden Set (Sku #5000).  I have one of the cards that I made for Creativation to share today:
I used spring-y colours to colour the fun couple using my Copic markers, added a few paper roses from my stash, and one of the six sentiments in the set as a banner.

New Art Impressions

Art Impressions is debuting four new Work & Play sets today, and I was lucky enough to make a few cards for them to take to Creativation back in January.  Here are two cards that I made with Office Party Set:
 This one is really cute, because the computer screen is actually blank, and there are a bunch of different sentiments sized perfectly for you to stamp what you want to fit the occassion.
And of course, I love coffee themed cards, so this was a fun one to put together.  I added a little gold metallic stitching with my sewing machine to both cards, and sprinkled a few gold sequins around as well.  Here's a peek at all the new sets:

I am playing along with the current Art Impressions challenge, which is "Watercolour Wonders"!  I got this stamp set a little while ago, and only just had a chance to paint it.  I've paired it up with (my favourite!) Lawn Fawn plaid papers, and made two of them for some bright & pretty spring cards:
Stamp sets are WC Series 5 Set 2 (Sku #4059), Flower Set (Sku #4052) and Foliage Set (Sku #4051) all from Art Impressions; Marvy Markers; Maya Road jute; MFT Dienamics, Wonky Stitched Square die; Lawn Fawn plaid papers.

Cupcake BFF's

And here is the final card from the Ai BFF trio that I put together this week.  Scroll down to see all three together.  Here is Cupcake BFF:
 I used the same paper pad for all three (Summer Dreams by Echo Park) so that they would coordinate together nicely, and I love the warm, bright colours!

Puppy Watercolour card

Here is the final card that we'll be painting at my Ai Watercolour class at The Workshop in April (details here!)  The puppy set is one of my favourites, so I had to include one in the class!  The nice thing is that by switching up the colours, you can easily make him resemble your favourite canine.
Art Impressions stamp sets used are: WC Dogs set, WC Bench set, Foliage set and Flower set.  Marvy markers.  Contact Sheri at The Workshop to book your spot, there are two different days - I'd love to have you join us!  Here is a photo of all four of the cards we'll be painting at the class:
