Art Impressions Challenge - Red, White, and Blue!

Hello AI Fans!!

So have you seen the new challenge going on right now over at Art Impressions Blog? It's getting very close to Independence Day, and the challenge is to use Red, White, and Blue for your project! For my card today, I'm featuring a new Art Impressions /Hampton Arts set that is exclusive to Michael's. The set comes with two different images and six different sentiments!!!  (this is soooo me and my friends!!!) :)


I stamped the image onto Cryogen White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic markers. I then cut out the image with Spellbinders dies.


The papers are digital from Nitwit Collections and I added a punched border that was created with a Martha Stewart punch. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and used more Spellbinder dies to cut it out. Both the image and the sentiment are raised off the card base with foam tape.


Please be sure to pop over to the Art Impressions Blog to check out all the amazing creations by the design team. Then we'd love it if you'd show us your version of Red, White, and Blue! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Art Impressions blog hop with Chameleon Pens and Perfect Paper Crafting!

Hello AI Fans!!
 
Welcome to day 6 of our blog hop with Chameleon Pens and Perfect Paper Crafting! We hope you're enjoying this week long adventure and are getting lots of inspiration from all the amazing creations!  You should have arrived here from the Perfect Paper Crafting Bog!


 
 
Today I'm showing you a new Art Impressions Stamp Set that is exclusive to Hobby Lobby called Live Laugh Love. It comes with 7 stamps!
 
 
So have you tried the Chameleon pens yet? It's amazing that you can get so many different shades of color out of one pen! From highlights all the way down to deep shadows!  I used the Primary Color Set for my card today, using YL2, GR3, RD4, and BL6.
 
Many years ago, I purchased a Perfect Layers set, but for this card I used the Perfect Layers Mini Border Tool Set which is perfect for making cards or matting photographs! What I really love about it is that with a paper trimmer, you have to have at least one straight edge in order to easily trim your paper straight.  With the Perfect Layers tools, you can use any piece of scrap paper that is large enough for what you want! It doesn't matter how crooked the edges are! I adhered my image to a piece of black scrap paper and trimmed it perfectly all the way around!
 
 
Then I adhered it to a scrap piece of the yellow polka dot papers and trimmed that with a nice wide border, then again with the black mat! Easy peasy!!
 
 
Simply added my sentiments, a flower with a silk bow, and some Viva décor pearls!
 
 
 
Your next stop in the hop to CHAMELEON PENS BLOG!  Thanks so much for hopping along with us and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!!  And don't forget to enter to win!!
