You should be arriving here from Diane Zechman's blog.  I have a fun group of gals to show you from the Dare To Be Fabulous set:
I went with some sweet, "little old lady" papers for my background, and coloured the gals with my Copic markers to match them.

Red, White & Blue Challenge

We are having a Red White & Blue Challenge on the Art Impressions blog - so I'm using one of the Vintage Vixen stamp sets - Bathing Suit Set (Sku #4589)
I made it into an easel card... I think this is the first time that I've done a circle version, and I quite like it!  I'm in a bit of a polka dot phase right now.
The inside sentiment is hilarious:  My bathing suit told me to go to the gym, but my sweatpants said, "Nah, you're good."  Now I also couldn't decide whether to add a bow or not, so here are a couple of shots including the bow... I actually like it both ways?

Head on over to the Ai blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has to share with you today, and be sure to link up your creation - there are always wonderful prizes to be won!
Copics used: Skin tones - E11, E00, E000, R20

This week, the Art Impressions Design team is hopping with Chameleon Pens and Perfect Paper Crafting!  From June 15th-21st we will host a mini blog hop each day between the three company blogs to showcase our products.  

 Today I am sharing three cards made with the Boy & Girl Mini Set (Sku #4403):
 I love how their little faces peek through the open window (I'm using Art Impressions Window Die Sku #4619).  The inside of my card shows the off Chameleon pens, and the wonderful gradiation of colour you can achieve with them:
I am using the 5 Pen Cool Tones set of Chameleon markers - and these are absolutely amazing!  Each pen comes with it's own infusing chamber that allows you to control the amount of colour in your pen.  To see videos of these pens in action - head on over to the Chameleon website.  Here are the gorgeous Cool Tones:
I made two additional cards using just the boy, and just the girl:
 I used two new products from Perfect Paper Crafting on today's projects - the Perfect Little Cutting Mat, and the Perfect Layers Mini Border Tool Set.

 These were SO helpful on this particular card - the border tools come with 8 different measurements.  I simply glued my striped paper onto a piece of black cardstock, and selected the 1/16" tool, placed it up against the striped paper, and when I used my exacto knife - it cut a perfect 1/16" mat around my paper!  These make perfect mat cutting a breeze... and the cutting mat has measurements around the rim, and a grid that I used to cut the perfect 2" squares with my exacto, that I needed for the window openings below:
 Your next stop today is the Chameleon blog - keep hopping to see what everyone has to share today!  And don't forget to enter our giveaway below.

Mood Swing

 I'm back using some of the brand new Art Impressions Vintage Vixens today - here is a card made with Mood Swing Set (Sku #4593):
I wanted it to have a bit of a Country Fair feel to it - which is why I chose these papers.  I stamped the gals, and coloured them with Copic markers, then fussy cut them out, quite close to the image.  I added pop dots to give the card a bit of dimension.
 Happy stamping, everyone!  Copic markers used:
Blues - B97, B95, B93, B91
Reds - R59, R24, R22, R20
Greens - G46, G43, G41
Browns - E57, E55, E53, E51
Greys - W7, W5, W3, W1
Skin tones - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E18, E07, E02, E55, E53, E51
