Hedgehog Fall Window Scene


Hey everyone! It's Janet here and today I want to show you how you can expand the use of Art Impressions ShadowBox Window Die Set. This die is made to work perfectly with all their Windows to the World stamp and die sets but there's no reason you can't also use them with other images. In fact, I've got a winter window with Santa waving hello in mind to do for a Christmas card very soon!

In this project, I chose the adorable hedgehog from #5191 Feast Mode Set. There are many cute characters and sentiments in this set that are perfect for fall. Three of the four critters in the set could be used in the ShadowBox die. I cut the shadow box piece and stamped on it. Then I colored this cutie with Copic markers. This is a really simple and quick image to color up. I have put the Copic colors I used at the bottom of this post.

Please stop by my channel to see how this was colored and constructed. Click on the thumbnail below.

In addition to the ShadowBox Dies, I used the Rectangle Double-Stitched Dies to cut out the pretty patterned paper for the front of my card. The sentiment I chose from the Feast Mode set is very touching. It fit nicely on the white space of the patterned paper.

Voila! Cupcakes Are Served!


Hello! It's Janet here to show you another card using the new Swirl Cupcake brads. This is a clean and simple card (CAS) that shows off the yummy looking cupcakes and one of the pink hearts from the Heart Brad Set. Sometimes the simplest things are the best things! 

The jolly chef comes from an old Stampin' Up stamp set called Voila! I found set while thrift shopping two years ago and FINALLY used it. It's super simple to color since it's almost all shades of gray. He's really a cheerful fella isn't he? 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your Sunday is restful and peaceful! It may be one of the last easy going weekends left before the Christmas season hits so eat up!

It's Lla-Mazing! New Llama Set You're Gonna Want to See!

Ll'amazing things are happening at Art Impressions right now! Not least of which is the super fun new Llama set that was released this week. This set includes several llamas and accessories that can be used together or alone. There are many fun sentiments in this set too. They are hilarious in fact!

Today's card shows of the pair of llamas with the stack of presents and cake as well as the basket of flowers. These are only a few of the accessories that are designed to be used separately as I did. Optionally the accessories are designed to fit perfectly on the back of a single llama also in the set! There's a lot of flexibility in this one and soooo many great images and sentiments.

This set also includes matching dies so you can quickly cut out the images for your cards. I sure do appreciate that! I'm not a fussy cutting fan though I know many say they find it relaxing. On this card I colored up the llamas with Copic markers and added a little texture into their fur. I also added designs to the presents to make them my own also.  

I've got a video on this set and how I made two cards using this set.

Of course no card can be awesome without good cardstock. I chose to use 65# Pop Tone Gumdrop Green for this one and a fun green patterned cardstock from my stash. Pop Tone cardstock is a great brand of quality cardstock. It has a very economical price point and is one of my favorites lines! 

On the other side of this slimline, I used a semi-circle cut with the double stitched circle set for the sentiment from the set and enhanced it with the basket of flowers. All the accessories are nicely sized and could easily be used as a single image on a clean and simple card. I love that about this set! I also used a strip of champagne colored long zig-zag bling from Eyelet Outlet at the top of the card. It has a middle-eastern flair that felt right for this card. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a fantastic week!

 Happy Creating Everyone!

Minty Fresh Reindeer Stackers!

What sights and smells trigger your holiday traditions and memories? Peppermint candies always bring me back to holidays at my grandparent's home. No Christmas went by without a bowl of peppermint candies on the table. Even though I don't eat them, their smell and sight always bring back good memories. My project today honors that memory. It's got a "peppermint twist" and includes lots of dimension and a cute stack of baby reindeer.
