Art Impressions Sunny Shades Copic Coloring

Hello Ai Fans!


I have birthdays on my mind so I thought that this Sunny Shades stamp would be loads of fun to color. I'm turning another year older, soon and I'm feeling the pains of last year when I loaded my husbands cake full of candles. Ha! What goes around comes around!?


I first stamped these cool gals on a piece of Neenah 80lb card panel and colored them in using Copic Markers. I have the colors I used listed below. After using the color blender to add the highlights to the dark background I painted gold stripes with Liquid pearls. 


I love how that background shines! Using the Rounded Rectangle Stitched die (Second to larges) and a Big Shot I cut 4 Neenah 110lb panels then the pattern paper with the blue splatter. I glued all those frames together which made a nice hefty stack and attached those to a card base. 


I used the same round rectangle die to die cut the colored girl friends image and glue that to the inside. The sentiment was created with a dark coral pink color and die cut using the Hexagon Stitched Die set that I cut in half to create a more banner look. 


For the inside I used one of the pieces left over from cutting out the border frames and stamped the inside sentiment with the overflowing candles on the cake. I bet my cake will look just like that one! Haha!!


Copic Markers Used:

Valentine Critters | Fur Copic Marker & Colored Pencil Coloring

Hello Ai Fans!

There is just a little less then a week left until Valentine's Day and I wanted to create another card using the, oh so cute, Valentine Critter set. Plus I've been wanting to work on coloring animal fur and this was perfect!

Watch the video here!


I thought it would be cute if the happy beaver was holding out a heart for the cute little mouse to fly in on his balloon to grab, they just look like they would be having some fun valentine day shenanigans.


I first stamped the beaver and the mouse with Copic friendly ink and colored them in. I used Copics first and then added some shading in with Prismacolor Pencils.


I used a stencil and some Tonic Mousse on the red cardstock for the background. I also utilized the large tag die from the Tag Stitched Dies set to cut out the critters and a piece of shimmery silver cardstock. I wanted this to have a bit of glitz!


I used the one of the smaller tag dies, from the Tag Stitched Dies set, to die cut some black cardstock and white heat emboss the sentiment that coordinates with the mouse. (yes I did notice that I forgot to color a bit of the balloon... oops!)   We'll just leave that between you and I. 😅


The inside I kept simple, and stamped the beaver again but in a light gray ink and the coordinating sentiment in red.

New Circlets from Art Impressions | How to

New challenge (stripes and circles) happening over on the Art Impressions blog which also mean we are featuring some of the new products in the Art Impressions Circlet line! I made a few cards using the brand new Pasture Circlet stamps and dies.


This one has a serine country look with a large barn, lots of grassy area and 2 beautiful horses behind a wooden fence. When I was little I loved horses (❤ My Little Pony, anyone else?) so this appealed to that old obsession of mine. 

Before making these, I had never used any of the products in the Circlet line before. So I decided to make the more "traditional" tryfold circlet cards. 

I know it always helps me to SEE how something is put together. Here is a video of how I made these circlet cards.

Not only was it easy to put these together but decorating was fun too. I used some Tonic Gilding flakes, Stick It adhesive and Art Impression Stitched Circle Dies, for the copper ring on this one.


This one I ink blended Distress Oxide Black Soot ink over a Kindred Stamps Zebra stencil to get those lovely stripes. I love the simplicity of B&W. For the inside of a few I used a couple of the Art Impressions Circle dies to make a ring, I did have to trim the inner circle a little more since it was not a perfect fit. Then I heat embossed the sentiment around the 3rd circlet with white embossing powder. For one of them I used my ATG adhesive and glued the second fold over so that it would still open like a traditional card instead of a tryfold. The possibilities are endless with these Circlet stamps and dies!

There is some amazing inspiration, showing how you can use these in other ways, from the other designers over on the Art Impressions blog. So, once you are done here I suggest checking those out, if you haven't already. 😉

That you so much for stopping by and please say hello in the comments! I love hearing from all of you.

Whisking you a Happy Birthday | 2 Ways

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm working on a couple of birthday cards. February is my birthday month ❤ Since I have birthdays on my mind (and cake, yum!) I thought I would use the Whisk It set to help curve some of those sweet cravings. HA!



I started off by stamping the cute baker lady and masking the cupcakes so I could stamp the oven. I did this twice so that I could use this set two different ways. Then I started coloring with Copic Markers, using blue/violet, pink and yellow as my main accent colors. Copic colors are listed below. 


For this first card I used a ruler and drew in the floor and cupboards. Just a basic grid and line work. I also kept the colors very neutral for the background so that the stamped images will stand out. For both of these I also stamped the sentiment with some bright pink ink. I layered it over a piece of black cardstock cut slightly larger then the white. Then I added some light gray lines, to mimic a letterboard style. 

This second one I stamped and colored the images from the Whisk It set the same way as I did the first. Instead of drawing in the background, this one I kept simple and fussy cut my stamp images then used some pattern paper for the floor and colored cardstock for the background. I did the same with the sentiment for this one too.


The inside I used some strips of the pattern paper and a bit of the colored cardstock. I stamped the, oh so cute, whisk birthday pun and add the little whisk beside it. 

This delicious set was a lot of fun to color and I adore the punny sentiments included!


Copic Markers Used:
W0, W1, W3, W6, W9
C7, C5, C3, C1

No Line Pencil Coloring | Art Impressions Ole Buck

Hello Ai Fans!

I hope you all are having a great day! Today I'm working on the some general male themed cards and I have this one to show you. I used the Ole Buck set and did some no line colored pencil coloring.


First I used a couple of different colors of Distress Oxide Ink to create the gray to green fade. I also stamped the sentiment and die cut it with the smallest hexagon die. That die is part of the new Hexagon Double Stitched Dies set.



I used some light gray ink to stamp the "camping supplies" along with the binoculars then colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils, to get the no line coloring effect. I used just a few Copics for the sky and ground colors. Using two of the Hexagon Double Stitched dies I cut a white frame to go around my images and also through the ink blended cardstock. 



The Tag Stitch Dies set has some great small circle dies to be used for the hole protectors on the tags but I use them to create the die cut circles on this card. I did have to run them through several times to get the cluster that I wanted, but it didn't take much time at all. I also used several of the negative pieces to group together with some of the smaller stamps in the Ole Buck set. After popping up the ink blended cardstock on a A2 card base I glued everything together and added white Nuvo Drops for a added accents. 


Prismacolor Penicls Used;
PC1058 90% Warm Gray
PC1054 50% Warm Gray
PC1060 10% Cool Gray
PC105 Cobalt Turquoise
PC905 Aquarmarine
