Inspiration day with Carolyn..

Hi ya peeps! 
It's my inspiration day and I wanted to share my take on triptych art.
I've been wanting to "cut up" a scene on a card for awhile now
and I finally did it but it's in four pieces and not three.
It's the thought that counts so I am pleased with the results.
I may have to create a couple of cards in the future to perfect
the technique. It's all about spacing, framing and choice of art.
The stamp I used is called F555 Bucket of Flowers.
I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and used
typed words for the sentiment.

Easter in White

       Today I'm sharing a classic Easter tag using E747 Easter Greetings.  It's another of my favorite Easter stamps.  It works inside or on the outside of a card.  


     I stamped E747 Easter Greetings 4 times and colored then popped the different layers using dimensional tape.   After mounting it on beautiful Egg shaped die I added lots of sparkle with Stickles; I wish you could see how it absolutely shimmers in the light. Finally a pretty bow was added and now it's ready to be attached to a chocolate bunny or Easter Basket.

Autism Awareness

Hi, friends!  I'm back with another card featuring stamps from the Great Impressions store!  This time I have a card that is for a cause that is near and dear to my heart--Autism Awareness.  April is Autism Awareness month and since I have worked with and am finishing my degree to be able to teach these kiddos, I felt I needed to bring attention to it this month somehow--and this image is PERFECT because the Autism Awareness symbol is a puzzle piece. :)

Here's the card~

Wonderful Wednesday with Joni


It's Joni.
Well it is finally warming up here in NH. 
So maybe we can Enjoy the Day.
 I stamped the main focal image: H196 Garden Shed with Tuxedo black ink and colored it in with copics. 
 I used part of the G483 Tags Rubber greeting to make the sentiment. 
With some dies I created the background scenery.

Inspiration Tuesday with Carolyn

Happy Tuesday!
Today I am going to share a project with you
that is simple and sweet.
I've always loved stamps that have floral
images. But sometimes I find that some of the 
stamps are way too busy to try to color.

I like easily colorable...is that a word and this
stamp is one I LOVE.
This stamp is called Watering Can Bouquet G302. I like the variety of different
types of flowers and that the image also includes a watering can. It's picture perfect!
I colored this up using Prismacolor pencils and a turpenoid solution.

Easter Tag

Here's a pretty little Easter Tag using Great Impressions C389 Fresh Eggs which is a darling little stamp that looks lovely on a tag or in the enter of a medallion of a card or even used as a all over background stamp.  This stamp is versatile too.  It can be used for Easter or for a country theme.



I really enjoyed coloring all the little eggs for this one.  They remind me of those little plastic eggs that children love hunting on Easter morning.

Shabby Easter Greetings

Hi, friends!  I'm back with another card featuring stamps from the Great Impressions store!  This time I have a vintage/shabby Easter card!  Make sure to grab these images from the store as soon as possible so that you can make a few of these before the holiday hits! :)

Here's the card~
More details on my personal blog HERE.

Products used: E747 Easter GreetingsG452 Easter Lily.

I stamped the lily image onto some patterned paper before distressing the paper and inking the edges of it.  The egg image was stamped onto white natural card and then colored in with light inks.  I distressed and inked the edge, added some Crackle Accents, and paper pieced the banner.  I layered the egg panel on top of some gauze and then added a fun floral spray in the corner to top it all off.

Inspiration Tuesday with Carolyn

Happy Tuesday GI fans! Today is my day to bring you 
a little inspiration. I couldn't resist making a little
Spring card for a little encouragement to Mother Nature!

This stamp is called Spring Boots F545 and can be found here. I decided
to pair it up with some checked paper that reminded me of a picnic cloth
and I added some bling, ribbons and a wee little lady bug.
I colored up the boots with Prismacolor pencils and the flowers I used
Copic markers.

Kendra from Luv 2 Scrap 'n Make Cards here today to share a Easter package with you!

With our current Spring Celebrations challenge in mind, I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Package for one of my kiddos for Easter!
I used the Cursive Happy Easter (C430) sentiment!
I then stamped the Basket of Bunnies (F543) image, and just cut out the eggs to add to my banner!

A fun little project!

Easter Basket

It's another fabulous Friday and I have another Easter Card for you today.  This time I used the beautiful F518 Easter Basket stamp.   I am having a ball with this charming stamp.  It's one of those stamps that works well in many different styles of card.  I have used it on kraft paper for a country look, with fancy dies for an elegant look and here I have used a little design paper and a simple egg die cut to keep the focus on the image.



The different layers of this card are each individually popped and the basket image is colored twice. One layer was die cut on the egg and then embossed and the second was fussy cut and popped on top of the first image.  This really creates a nice three dimensional effect.  To finish off this card, all the edges of each layer were outlined in crystal stickles and all the eggs were also covered in stickles.

Until next week.

Spring Flowers!

Hello, all!  I hope your week is going well!  :)  Today I've got a lovely springtime card that uses stamps from the Great Impressions store.  Come take a peek!  I think you'll love the blue jars I created! :)

Here's the card~

Detail~

Product used: G363 Spring Floral Jars.

To create the blue mason jars, I stamped the image onto my white cardstock and then colored in the images with Sakura glitter gel pens.  I then stamped the image a second time onto some vellum, colored the vellum blue with china ink (a Faber Castell marker), cut out the jars, and added them to the image!  Voila!  I LOVE the way this turned out! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek!  Hop over to the blog for a video tutorial on how to achieve that watercolor look with your stamps! :)  Next week I'll be back with another creation for your viewing pleasure!  I hope you'll participate in our monthly challenge and if you use GI stamps, make sure to add it to our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
