Garden Gnome card

Here is the third card I made using the new Work & Play set from Art Impressions: "Gotta Garden (Sku #5000).  I really LOVE this little gnome - I love that he's been drawn like a lawn statue.  Lots of fun possibilities for cards using him!
I kept my design simple, as he is fairly small, but I wanted the focus on him - so I gave him a large floral mat, and a contrasting background.

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:

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!
