A little birdie told me


Today I'm sharing one of the brand new Cubbies sets from Art Impressions.  This one is called Woodland Tree Cubbies.

     This one is super fun to play with.  As you can see there are lots of different critters with the accompanying dies.  You can make as many as you want.  Then the main image also has dies to cut out all the little doors and windows for you to pop the critters in any way you want.
     I used my Prismas to color.  I find them easier to use on these small images.
     This was my daughters birthday card.


     Remember, Art Impressions allows their retailers to sell their stamps first before you will find them in the AI store.  So if they aren't there yet check your favorite online stores like Simon Says Stamp.
     Thanks for all the well wishes.  I am doing lots better.
     Have a blessed day!

Miss me?


     Hi all!  Yes, I've been missing in action for quite a while.  A huge thanks to those of you who checked on me.  I suffered a rather large bout of crafty burnout.  I've been papercrafting since 2010 on blog and YouTube and never really had a break from it in all those years.  It just kind of crashed on me and I had to step away for a while.
     I have several cards I made in December to share with you that went to Creativation 2019 with Art Impressions and I am working on the huge stack of new stamps and dies they sent me for the latest release.
     I'm still not up to speed, especially since I have been fighting the flu and it's aftermath for the last two weeks, but I am slowly working on new projects to post.
     Today's card features one of the adorable hedgies in the Hedgehog Set.

Art Impressions HEDGEHOGS Funny Farm Clear Stamps 5112 zoom image

      I used a combination of Copics and Prismas to color him up and used a white gel pen to give him some quills.


     Hope you have a great day.  I'm going to try to see if I can get in to see the doctor and get some relief.
     Be blessed!
Tracy

Thanks a mushroom


     I bought this Reverse Confetti tag die during Black Friday sales and couldn't wait to use it.  I've stamped this gorgeous mushroom from Purple Onion Designs onto some watercolor paper and used my Distress inks to color it.  I first tried using my Derwent watercolor pencils, but I just couldn't get the richness of color you get with the Distress inks.  I used my Krylon gold leafing pen to go around the edge of the tag.  I also added a drop shadow to the sentiment with some gray ink.


     Can't believe 2019 is almost here.  Wonder what this year will hold.
