A bright and sunny card for Art Impressions

Hi everyone!

Although I still see so much snow when I look out my window, I know spring is right around the corner. Or at least, I like to believe it. :) So to cheer me (us) up, I made a very bright and sunny card this week.

For the background I used a stencil that I ABSOLUTELY love and a sponge to ink it up. I stitched a grass border and placed my rabbit right on top of it. The rabbit was colored with watercolor. 

Thanks for looking!!
Happy Stamping!

A glitter-y and fun page

Hi everyone!!

Today I'd like to show you a page that I made in 2 steps:

1st step: in Anaheim, at the Big Picture Play Event in May Flaum's workshop.

I assembled pretty much all the paper and embellishment with some removable adhesive. I didn't have a picture with me at that time but I knew I wanted to make a page about what Stacy Julian had just said about "plaing more" and I knew I would have enough photos to pair my journaling with. So I layered and sponged and layered again. :)

2nd step: home. I took every pieces apart and assembled them again, this time with my sewing machine. it was awesome! And just as it was planned, I found the perfect picture of me and Tracey Clark to complement the text. The colors of the pictures don't match the colors of the papers? Who cares? really…! :)

Thanks for stopping by you guys! It is truly appreciated!!

Mini Front and Back Launch - Art Impressions Blog Hop

Hello Ai Fans!
Hi everyone!

Today Art Impressions is launch their new Mini Front and Back stamps collection and they are just SOOOOOOO CUTE!!!

For CHA I got to play with the owl, the duck and rabbit and the little monkey too and I just adored them. :)

Today, for the launch I made some cards with the little crab and the little frog. The sentiments are just so cute.

Here are my cards:

I stamped the crab on watercolor paper and colored it with some water base ink from stampin'up. The circle was made with a 1 1/4' circle punch. For the sand I tear the edge of the kraft cardstock and I added some stickles.

I stamped my little frog with some Memento ink and colored it with Copics markers. For the whole, I punched the front panel with a 1 3/8' circle punch and was planing on using a 1 1/4' circle punch for the base of the card but I couldn't reach that far with my punch so I used a smaller circle of my Colluzle cutting system. I used a circle stamp and some cookie crumb ink from Stampin'UP! to stamp around some circles on the front of the card and I than add some stickles to them. The sentiment is adhered with some foam adhesive. I hand drew and cut the little banner and mounted it on a green patterned paper from one of the Amy Tangerine's line.

Go take a look at the rest of the collection and the gorgeous cards my DT colleagues have made! You will find really fun ideas! :)

Now hop over to my friend Renee's blog.

Thanks for stoping by today!!

A card full of love - Tweetheart from Art Impressions

Hi everyone!! 

I really got into this little bird as I was working on the Valentines for my daughter's classmates this February and I made a couple more cards with him because I feel like he's not only made for Valentine's Day, but also for a friend or a loved one who could need a hug. :)

Happy Stamping!
