Art Impressions are having an Orange and Purple Challenge.  For some reason I thought it was Orange and Black.  So I have 2 cards to share today.  I used the Howl-oween stamp set.  There are so many fun not spooky images on this set.  I stamped the images onto watercolor paper with Stayz-On ink.  Then I watercolored them using Marvy Markers.  The papers are Minds Eye "Halloween Basics" The ribbon and twine are from The DL.ART Store.

Cookie, The Stamps of Life dog, is so darn cite.  I have many Cookie stamps in all sizes. Recently I purchased the Doggone Cute stamp and die set.  I decided to paint the scene then inset the dies.  The clouds are dies by My Creative Time.  I began by cutting a 4X6 mat.  Then I cut out the dog, dog house and clouds.  I water colored the dies using Mary Markers.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to create the background.  Then I put all of the pieces back in the scene.

I have been playing around with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks.  For this background  I used Broken China and Wilted Violet.  The flower stamp is by Penny Black-I heat embossed it with Recollections Detail Embossing powder. Then I water colored the image with Marvy Markers.  I tried something new-outlining the image.  The background paper is Bazzill Marble Cardstock.  I added A "thank You" die by Anna Griffin.  The matting dies are My Creative Time.

I thought I would try mixing it up a little.  At the Scrap Book Expo I got this fun Photo Play "Party girl" pad.  I picked two papers that I normally would not of put together.  Then I added a ruffle of Purple ribbon from the DL.ART Rainbow Bundle.  The stamp is Art Impressions Greatest Gift Window.

This is my second entry into the Art Impressions Showered With Love Challenge.  For this entry I watercolored the animals with Marvy markers.  Then I framed them using Sizzix Dies.  The sentiment is from Welcome Little One Mini Try fold.

Three Baby Shower Projects one set of Stamps

Art impressions are having a "Showered With Love" challenge.  The challenge requires a baby or wedding shower project.  For this entry I made a tag, a giftcard holder and a card.  I used the Art ImpressionsMini Tryfold Welcome Little One stamp and die set.  I began by making the tryfold card.  I  watercolored the images using Marvy Markers and a brush. Secondly, I made a matching gift card holder using portion of the stamp.  I used a Sizzix dies to frame the image.  The gift card holder die and the tag die are by My Creative Time.  The beautiful lavender ribbon is from the Spring Bundle by DL.ART.  It was fun using all of the stamps and dies from this set in different ways.
