Slimline Card Challenge

Hello and welcome here. I decided to make a second card for the Art Impressions Slimline Challenge found HERE, using the instructions from THIS video by Bonnie Krebs.  THIS is the video I first saw, and bought my stamps based on this project!!!

I used 5261 Large Birdhouse Set, 4052 Flower Set, 4051 Foliage Set, and 5258 Flowers Set 4.

This was my first attempt at watercolouring the Ai way, and so I copied the flower placements etc. used by Bonnie in the video, so that I could focus on the watercolouring part.  I had so much fun, and learned sooooo much...enough to design the first card today all on my own.

Watercolour Slimline Cards

Hello and welcome here.  A few weeks ago I discovered an Art Impressions watercolor stamp video.  I am hooked!!  I ordered the Watercolor Starter Bundle and Flower Set 4, which allowed me to create these 2 cards...and the wreath I used on a wedding card a couple of posts ago.

Card Size:  3.5" x 8.5"
I am new to these slimline cards, and I saw that the Art Impressions Blog is having a Slimline Card Challenge.   You can find it HERE.  I thought I would challenge myself to give it a go.

I used 5123 Decorative Jar, 4051 Foliage Set, and 5258 Flower Set 4 for this card.

Baby Cards

 Hello and welcome here.  The summer has passed us by and the leaves are changing and falling here already.  I have some baby cards that I made in the summer to share with you today.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I pieced the starburst pattern using patterned paper.  It's difficult to see but the white paper piece is embossed.  I made a girl version and a green version, changing up the sentiment for each.

I cut a rectangular piece of paper 1.5" x 6", I then cut the paper diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner to get the triangular shape.

Thanks for stopping by.

Heart Shaped Wreath Card

 Hello and welcome here.  I recently saw a video using a birdhouse stamp from Art Impressions Rubber Stamps, and watercolouring flowers and foliage.  I immediately ordered the stamps, lol.  I don't know how I missed their watercolouring technique before, but I am DOWN with it now!!!  

Card Size:  5.5" x 5.5"
The next video I just happened to watch was one from their FB page, where Kendra shows how to stamp wreaths.  You can find that video HERE...the heart wreath starts at approx. 36:00.  

Well lucky me, my stamps arrived 4 days before a wedding I was going to and I decided to try my hand at the wreath!  This is my attempt. 

This is a better view of the wreath.  I will definitely be making more of these!!!  So simple and quick.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bicycle Ride Birthday Cards

Hello and welcome here!  This is my last card I'm sharing that I created this summer, after being away from crafting for 2 years. I'm back to work now and so my creative time is cut down drastically, but never fear, I am still creating.  I will try to post at least once a week cards I have completed.

Card Sizes:  4.25" x 5.5"

Both cards were inspired by this bicycle card found on Pinterest HERE.  I loved the cute frame she used, but I had to just go with a plain one since I don't have the same one.  I used My Favorite Things Inside/Out Stitched Rectangles die to create my frame, the bicycle is from BoBunny, and the wavy hill is Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders 1 die.

Thanks for stopping by!

White on White Wedding Cards

 Hello and welcome here! I needed some wedding cards and love the white on white look.

I was inspired by this card found on Pinterest HERE. I kept the focal point the same and changed up the embossing folder and sentiment.  I would go a little lighter on the grey next time, but it was all I had on hand at the moment and I was inspired. I used Blossom Sprig from Memory Box, and Quilted embossing folder from WeR Memory Keepers, and Quattrafoil embossing folder from CTMH.

Happy Birthday Cards

 Hello and welcome here. I hope you enjoy the cards inspired by Pinterest today.

Card Sizes:  4.25" x 5.5"

These cards were totally scrap lifted by the one I found HERE on Pinterest. I don't usually like so much white space, but I really like the feel of it with this card.  I added a strip of matching glitter paper just to give it a finished look.  The happy die was from Simon Says Stamp. and the thanks die was called Scripty Thanks from Lawn Fawn.  I used Martha Stewart edge punches.

Thanks for dropping by!

Sympathy Cards

 Hello and welcome here.  I needed so make some Sympathy cards and headed over to Pinterest for some inspiration.

All three cards were inspired by this card on Pinterest found HERE.  For the first card, I didn't have a feather stamp or die, so I used the Honey Blossom Sprig die from Memory Box.  The Sympathy die is from Simon Says Stamp. The second card I used Decorative Labels 8 from Spellbinders and the poppy is called Prim Poppy from Memory Box.  And for the final card, I used Arbescello Tree die from Memory Box.
