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:

Watercolour Wonders challenge

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:

Another Ai Watercolour

Here is the second card that I will be teaching at The Workshop in April (details here!).  This is a variation of a card that I made last summer.  The watercolour stamps are typically used for containers of flowers, or cottage type scenes, and I wanted to use the branches to just show a birdhouse and a bird - perfect for a birthday, thank you or thinking of you card:
Stamp sets used are Art Impressions: WC Branches Set, WC Birds Set, WC Foliage Set 2, WC Sentiments & half of the birdhouse from WC Series 7 Set 2.  Inks are Marvy & Tombow markers.

Inspired By & Sketchy Saturdays

Laurel Seabrook has two great challenges on the go right now... and I am playing along with both of them.  She has started Sketchy Saturdays on her blog, so I took the sketch and squished it down to make a horizontal card.  For her Inspired By challenge... I don't own any fox images, and my kitty ones weren't really the right fit, so I went with the graphic patterns and colours shown in the photo.
My brother-in-law likes to have a stash of cards on hand, so I'm sending him this one that'll work as a valentine or a general card that he can give to my sister!
Patterned papers are Photoplay & Papermania by Docrafts.  Dies are Verve (heart) and CTMH (love).  Coloured staples are CTMH.
