I love cards that have a unique movement to them.
I love Art Impression Stamps.
Put them together and you have this fun stacker card.
The hardest part was choosing which stamp to buy!
I went with the dogs since the top dog looks like my little Ace!

Too cute huh!

So I couldn't decide on the sentiment, so I will bring the one
 that came with the set and you can stamp it on the inside of your card
 if you would like.

Please bring your basic class kit including
navy edger
color medium of you choice and any tools you may need
I will bring my water color pencils
you will need a brush & water
non stick craft mat

See you Thursday!

Paris in the springtime.
I have had this Tim Holtz stamp and die set for quite some time now.
I have made several attempts in the past to use it unsuccessfully. 
Well today I was determined.
I went through several versions before I settled on this one.
I don't know why I am having so much difficulty with this set.
Maybe I need a trip back to Paris, it's been a while.

Today I will share a neat trick with giving the Eiffel Tower dimension.

Please bring your basic class kit including
black edger

Hope you're enjoying this weather!

Today I tried my hand at 
"Water coloring the Art Impressions way"
I have watched several of their videos
 and have been collecting their various stamps.
Today's card is a very simple version of their technique.
I was quite surprised of the outcome of my first attempt.
They really do break it down for you.
