Perfect Paper Crafting and Art Impressions Blog Hop…





Hi everyone! I have a card to share here and a card on the PPC blog today. There’s a blog hop happening there this week!




What a fun set to color!  I love these Try” folds stamp sets form Art Impressions!  The one I used for my card is Shoppes TF-4339.

I stamped with Ranger Archival Black Ink on watercolor paper and colored with Distress Markers.  I add color to an area and move it around with a paintbrush and water.  Love how easy it is and that I’m happy in the end! lol

I didn’t do the try fold for my card… I just turned it into a scene by cutting and layering with 3D mounting squares.

Of course I had to mat the focal piece with my 1/16th inch Perfect Layer Tools… I will never quit using them! : ) They work so slick and what a time saver.  None of the back to the trimmer thing going on!  YAY!  Link to shop in the sidebar and don’t forget to use the coupon code for 10% off.




I don’t remember all the colors I used but you can’t go wrong with these stamps!  So much fun!  I have a few other sets too…thinking they could work up fun for Christmas!  You know…when you start getting tense as the holidays approach, you can always use a little color book therapy!  I know it’s good for me!

Now, if you would like to see the other card I made with Art Impressions, Chameleon Pens and Perfect Paper Crafting… hop over to the Perfect Paper Crafting blog HERE!  From there you can hop to the Art Impressions and Chameleon Pens blogs for chances to win prizes!

Thanks for stopping by today… if only we lived close enough we could run across the street for show and tell now and then!  Wouldn’t that be fun!  : )  Happy creating for Father’s Day.  I’m working on birthday cards for two of the grandsons also. Always cards to be made!  Take care!

  7. Now how fun is this!?! I love that you watercolored it-gives it such an ‘artistic’ feel. I love that you just layered the outside flap stamps instead of making it open up like that…I am going to give that a try too! Thanks for the great inspiration!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
