Art Impressions | Pumpkin Spice

Hi-ya,

Today I’ve got a watercolor card to share with you using the Stamptember special edition AI Pumpkin Spice stamp set. This image is adorable – these ladies look like the best of friends chatting over their lattes. Don’t you just want to know what story she is telling? Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some still shots of the finished card:

Front

I followed the packaging art for where to add in the shadowing but added some brighter colors to my scene.

inside

Such a cute sentiment – it’s definitely pumpkin latte season.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope I was able to give some inspiration. xoxo, Sarah


13 Days of Halloween

13 Days of Halloween – Day 1 | Stamping Bella’s Oddball Frankenstein

Hello everyone,

I’m here today with my first Halloween card of the season. I saw these new oddball stamps from Stamping Bella and while I wanted each and every one, I narrowed it down to this guy. Isn’t he just delightfully grumpy?

I always love a reason to pull out my watercolors and Stamping Bella images are some of my favorites to use them with. I’ve left in most of the coloring process – if you’re just interested in putting the final card together you can skip to the 3-minute mark.

Here is the full video:

And here are still shots of the finished card:

front

Wasn’t sure what I would do with this sheet of glittery webbing when I picked it up but it was irresistible and I love how it looks as a background. The thick strands were easy to add glue to.

inside

I decided to keep the inside simple and just stamped a repeat of the monster using some Lawn Fawn Grape Jelly Ink.

I stamped this image on Fabriano 140# Hot Press paper with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink and heat set that with some Simon Says Stamp Fine Detail Clear embossing powder.

As always, thanks for stopping by. xoxo, Sarah
