Let me show you the cards I created...
For my very first card, I stamped, colored (Prisma Color) and fuzzy cut the image. I then layered it on sentiment stamped die cut tag which was further layered on blue tag (Luggage Tags Nesting Dies) and that in turn on patterned paper. To embellish I added twine and clothespin

For this card, I went with more neutral and subtle colors. I stenciled the heart (Zen Hearts Stencil) using white ink on a kraft paper. Cut that in angles and layered it on a panel. I stamped the sentiment on a frame die cut (Pierced Curly Frames. Tags Nesting dies)and layered it with some twine and clothespin.

I had loads of fun creating these, the possibilities are endless with this set. I hope you enjoyed my creations and liked my newest set. This set is available in store at a 10% Instant Discount, HERE

STAMPlorations Mini Release Blog Hop - You & Me!

Hello everyone and welcome to yet another STAMPlorations Mini Release Blog Hop. I am pretty excited and have been waiting for this release eagerly. I have a Newest set called the "You & Me" under my stamp line "Dee's Artsy Impressions" I was inspired by Ampersand for this one. I guess its a must have stamp set for us all... there is something about ampersand that is so intriguing ;)
I made this set with a focus on using ampersand as a design element that would go perfectly with the sentiments. It has three variations of ampersand which would allow you to create a whole array of cards :) Leave a comment here, STAMP blog and on the designers' blogs for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. And if you want another chance at winning, link up any project you have with a love theme or red in it to the February Challenge - Paint It Red.

I went a little over the board in making inspiration cards for this set and ended up creating quite a few :) Here's the inspiration parade.
For my very first card, I stamped, colored (Prisma Color) and fuzzy cut the image. I then layered it on a black  die cut frame (Pierced Curly Frames Dies) and that in turn on patterned paper. Clean and Simple.
For this card, I stamped the image in a light ink and colored it with Prisma Color Pencils using the no line coloring technique :) and then layered the panel on a patterned paper.
For this card, I heat embossed the image in gold on a patterned paper with a gold foiled sentiment. To add more interest I added a die cut vellum butterfly (Flutter Zen - 2 Layering dies)
In this card, I did some color blocking using variations in card stock and stamped the image and simply colored it with Prisma Color Pencils.

I had loads of fun creating these, the possibilities are endless with this set. I hope you enjoyed my creations and liked my newest set. This set is available in store at a 10% Instant Discount, HERE

STAMPlorations Mini Release Blog Hop - Little Love Birthday Wishes!

Hello everyone and welcome to yet another STAMPlorations Mini Release Blog Hop. I am pretty excited and have been waiting for this release eagerly. I have a Newest set called the "Little Love - Birthday Wishes" under my stamp line "Dee's Artsy Impressions" I was inspired by my son (who just turned "Two" on the 29th of January) and motivated by Shery to design this set :) Thank you Shery for being the most amazing person I have ever worked with :)
I made a Birthday theme set, cause birthday cards are the most that I need :) Here is a preview of this set.  There are a few images to make the focal point of your card, some sentiments and little cluster of confetti and star stamps to make your card more of a celebration :) If you would like a chance to win this set don't forget to leave a comment here and on STAMP blog :) 
I went a little over the board in making inspiration cards for this set and ended up creating quite a few :) Here's the inspiration parade.
For my very first card, I inked the panel with Distress inks and stamped some solid circles to create a bokeh effect for the illusion of light from the candles. I stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the image for the focal point of the card. Coloring was done with Prisma Color Pencils. Besides the new set I used Retro Mod shapes for stamping the circles. 
For this card, I diecut the coordinating balloon die of Kathryn's Birthday wishes Coordinating die set and stamped the images on each, colored those in Spectrum Noir makers, stamped some confetti on the background and added a background of black patterned paper.
For this card, I stamped fuzzy cut and colored the images using Prisma Color pencils. I masked the base panel with the post it notes to make my inked sun burst background. To finish I added splatter of black ink and stamped the sentiments :) 
 In this card, instead of creating a birthday card I made a congrats card, using just the gifts. That images was stamped twice by masking and then fuzzy cut along the stamp line to make the image extend all along the base. This was also colored with Prisma Color Pencils. To finish I die cut the Congrats Word Art Die twice and layered it to create some dimension.
This one uses the magic of Distress inks and tone on tone stamping of the tiny stars for the background. Image was stamped colored and fuzzy cut and adhered on the base panel. 
For my final card, I used some colored card stock and cut out strips of those to make a panel with diagonal stripes. I stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the image and adhered it along with the Birthday  Word die.

I had loads of fun creating these, the possibilities are endless with this set. I hope you enjoyed my creations and liked my newest set. This set is available in store at a 10% Instant Discount, HERE
