Windows to the World

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing two Windows to the World cards made with Art Impressions images.





This is the front of the card.  You're looking through the window to the beautiful lighthouse outside.


Aren't the curtains adorable?


On the inside of the card you see the lighthouse better.


In this shot you can see the front window and the inside view. The Windows to the World are such great sets!


You can choose just about any scene that you want to see out your window.

For this card I chose the Swan scene.



Are you sensing that I like to be around water?  I actually far prefer a pond or lake to the ocean.
Isn't this such a pretty image?


Here's the inside.

I Brake for Riley's Birthday!

Hello and happy Saturday!
Welcome to my weekly I Brake for Stamps post.

My niece just celebrated her 17th birthday.
Since she's a little older now I wanted to do something pretty, yet still fun.
I think this suits her perfectly.  She's quite mature now yet still very young at heart.

I used a birthday verse from EVERY DAY PHRASES.
Inside the shaker I used the blue and yellow BISTER STAINS.


This is the same blue bister that I used on a card a couple of weeks ago.
As you can see the original card was almost navy blue.  By simply adding more water to the powder I was able to get this teal look.  Add more powder for a darker look...less for lighter shades.  You can also use the stains to create a water color effect.  Pretty cool results for a tiny little container of powder.  And, although the container is tiny the powder lasts SUCH a long time.  It's so potent that you need only a tiny sprinkle to get some pretty grand results.


I mixed the blue bisters with water as you're supposed to.  I treated the yellow a little differently.  I have a shimmer spray that I thought would be interesting to mix with the Bisters.  I was right.  I sprinkled just a tad of the yellow powder into a plastic palette and then sprayed a bit of the spritz into the dish.  I "scooped" up the liquid with my paint brush and splattered it onto the paper.  I really like the look it created.  It's tough to see the metallic look in the photo but it's very cool in person.

Elephant PopCard...New interactive Art Impressions!!


Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing such fun new set from Art Impressions!
This new set is called Elephant PopCard set.


There is a whole new line of PopCards and they're all adorable!

I chose to make a little window so that you could get a sneak preview of the cute little elephant.


I tried to make the window frame look a little like the daisy that the elephant is holding.
