  • Guest Blogger: Lisa Spangler - Day 2

    It's Day 2 with our guest blogger, Lisa Spangler! Merry Moose-mas is the theme for today and you will not be disappointed with what Lisa created using one of our new clear moose themed sets.
    merry-moosemas-overallmerry-moosemas-detail2

    I love how festive this card is and how Lisa used the stamps in this set to create different garlands. One of my favorite parts is how she used the Hero Arts neon pink ink pad to make the card pop. The other Fresh Ink colors (kale, peony and aloe) really go well together with the neon pink.

    Lisa also added detail to the holly and the centers of the flowers with the pink moonlight gelly roll pen.

    What a cute way to decorate an envelope! Love the added detail of using a few other gelly roll pens to make a polka dot mailbox or should I say moosebox and the neon pink tape.  Everything coordinates from the card to the finishing touches on the envelope.  Who wouldn't be excited to receive this in the mail?

    You are going to see some beautiful and creative cards this week. It's so inspiring to see someone create a realistic scene with just a few stamps. I love how the trees are stamped, the white snow hill and the beautiful watercolor lines on the trees.  Lisa stamped the birch trees using Momento gray flannel ink and then heat set it prior to watercoloring.  She said she wanted to use gray to make the lines softer, like real birch.

    The santa hat is a sticker and Lisa hand cut a piece of red felt for the scarf.

  • Guest Blogger! Lisa Spangler from Sideoats & Scribbles

    Hi all! We are beyond thrilled to be so lucky to have Lisa Spangler as our guest blogger for the entire week!  We love everything that Lisa creates and her eye for taking pictures.  We met Lisa several years ago when she was working for Hero Arts and knew instantly that she was someone that had a similar creative style as Impress. You can follow her on her blog, sideoats and scribbles or on her other social media outlets. We love everything she shares and you might even learn a few things about Texas!

    cork-bottles-overall

    These 3 cards are so adorable!  This clear set is called Holidays in a Bottle and we love how Lisa created all of these little scenes making each card different and unique.

    cork-stamping

    My favorite part is how she stamped the cork top onto a real cork coaster! She used a couple different colors but thought the Fresh Ink kale color worked the best since it's a little darker and has the most contrast.  First, you ink the cork stamp, then stamp into the coaster and it picks up the texture onto the back of the stamp so when you stamp on the paper you will end up with the pattern of the cork.  She used a cork coaster from IKEA, they are super inexpensive.
    cork-house-detail

    It's fun so see these cards up close to see all of the detail. She used Fresh Ink blush to stamp the bottle and used kale, peony and aloe for the other images.  The combination of colors look so well together against the green card stock.  It's a perfect combination of the stamped centerpiece design with the stitched frame around the edge, a hint of glitter, the simple happy holidays banner and some holiday twine.

    cork-mountains-detail

    I love the watercolor detail on the mountain stamp.  It's a perfect touch and adds so much depth to the card.

    This is just the start of a great week of amazing cards designed by Lisa! Join us each day and don't forget to leave a comment! We want to give Lisa a warm welcome and we will have a winner at the end of the week!  All you have to do is make a comment, each day - Monday through Friday and you will be entered to win a fun prize which will include a variety of the products she used for her cards!  We look forward to hearing from you!

  • FALL COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

    fall-hop-with-date

    Fall is in the air and we are excited to be participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! We have added 11 new colors to our Fresh Ink stamp pad line and they are perfect for the fall season.

    For this project, we started with a plain white card and I used one of my square dies to die cut a picture frame in the center of the card.

    step-1

    Next, I stamped this cute dancing fox onto watercolor paper.  I wanted to do a watercolor background to create a simple colored background because I was placing the fox inside the frame and I knew I needed some dimension to the white card.step-2

    I colored in the fox with my basic set of colored pencils.

    step-3 step-4

    Here are the 3 Fresh Ink colors that I used: Succulent, Aloe and Persimmon along with my well loved stamps. I love these colors and think they are beautiful together.  Perfect for fall!

    I was so excited when we added the small coffee stamp to the Impress holiday release this year!  I knew, if we were asked to participate again, then I would be using it for the next Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

    I glued the fox image behind the frame and positioned the fox so that when I glued the coffee cup, it would be on the other side of the frame.  The coffee cup was stamped on white and then on kraft paper and I cut out each and glued them together and used foam tape to tape onto the card.

    step-5

    As always, we've had so much fun participating in this blog hop!  Thank you Amy Tsuruta for the invitation! For more inspiration, go on over to the Coffee Lovers Cardmakers blog.
