WHITE SPACE

ART IMPRESSIONS are having a "White Space is Nice Space" Challenge.  This is a real challenge for me because I love patterned papers.  For this challenge I used  Flower Set 2Foilage Set 1Water Color Cat set and Wooden Gate set.  I used Marvy markers on the stamps then softened them with a wet brush.
The white damask papers are Recollections.  The beautiful white ribbon is Chalk White from the Newspaper Bundle by DL.ART.

GOOD MORNING.  Today marks the beginning of a new Thankful Thursday Challenge over at DL.ART.  This time the Challenge is "Boys or Men" .  You can always substitute a Thank You card.  Oh boy Fathers Day is around the corner.  I haven't started creating for that event yet.  My friend, Celeste is throwing a baby shower for her son and his wife who are expecting a baby boy in July.  She held the shower a beautiful home in Lake Tahoe.  We decided on a Woodland themed baby shower.  I hope to post those pictures after the shower.  I made this fun gift card holder that is the shape of a diaper.  Fir this project I used 2 beautiful white buttons from the Elegant Buttons collection.  I tied bows with Blue Basic Twine.   I love this twine the colors are perfect for baby projects.  Diana generously offers my reader a 10%discount.  Just use the code K34510 at checkout.
I used the new Anna Griffin Giftables Cricut cartridge to make the gift card holder.  There is an envelope. an inside holder shaped like a diaper and a folder to put the gift card in.  I decorated the outsides of the envelopes with cuts from Create A Critter.  The papers are Cor'dinations and Heidi Grace.

I can't wait to see your projects.  Head on over to DL.ART for more inspiration.

HOW MANY DOTS AND STRIPES ARE THERE

Here is my second entry for the Art Impressions Dots and Stripes Challenge.  I got the inspiration for this card from Sharon who is on the AI DT. Click Here.  After I started this card I got more inspiration from Renee on the Art Impressions blog.  I colored Marvy Markers on my pallette and used them as paints to watercolor the image from Art Impressions Get Well set.  The papers are Echo Park

HAPPY TAILS TO YOU

Good Morning.  Today I have a card for you that I made for the current Art Impressions Challenge-Dots and Stripes.   I used the Dog Stackers stamp set and the crate from the hRustic Container set.  I began by inking up the outer edges of the container stamp and stamped it upside down a few times until the stack was hight enough for the sentiment to fit.  Then I added the stamp and water colored the crates using Marvy Markers. I stamped the main image onto of the crates, then watercolored it.  I cut out the colored image and adhered it to some dotted paper by DCWV .  The dark brown crinkle ribbon is Espresso from the Coffee House bundle 2 over at the DL.ART Shop.
 I am thinking of adding little graduation caps to some of the dogs.  I thought it would be fun for an 8th grader who has promotion coming up. What do you think?
