I'm combining a bit of old & new today. Last fall I painted up several images using WC Series 3 Set #1 (Sku #4056) and WC Series 3 Set # 2(Sku #4057) by Art Impressions. I had always thought of these as "harvest/fall" stamps... until I saw this watercolor tutorial by Kendra Krebs - and she used it as a spring/farmer's market theme. Here is one of the images that I painted, that I made up into a springlike card, along with the brand new WC Sentiments Set (Sku #4903):

Welcome to another week of Inspired By All The Little Things! I am the challenge hostess this week, and have chosen a dreamy night sky photo as our inspiration. I had a great time trying a new combo of distress inks to give me a colourful sky, and then I used my white Sharpie fine point marker to add my stars. I am using High Hopes Rubber Stamps on today's card - here is Blinky Owl, who I masked and then stamped the Tree Stump behind him:
The sky is a little darker/more navy-ish in real life, giving it a night sky look. *I have invited the talented Leanne Elliott as my Guest Designer this week, so head on over to the blog to see what she & our talented Design Team have come up with. Here is our inspiration photo:

I'm here with the March edition of Tuesday Threads with Karen... using the pretty Art Impressions Shop Hop fabrics designed by Bonnie Krebs, available through Henry Glass Co.
I have a needle case to share with you today! Both my Mother & Grandmother used to have these in their sewing rooms to keep all of their handsewing needles and pins organized, so I thought I'd make one for myself. Here's what I started with:
Therm O Web slightly larger than my base pieces, and sandwiched it between the two.
I absolutely love the effect! The Heat n Bond fleece is only about 1/8" thick - perfect for this project.
On the outside of the needle case, I used Heat n Bond Lite iron-on adhesive to attach two semi circles of contrasting fabric. I used a zigzag stitch around them to finish the edges.

The Art Impressions Design Team are showing off the new Ai Watercolor Mini sets, as well as two new flower/foliage sets, and a Watercolor Sentiments stamp set (you'll love this!)
A few weeks ago I had a very productive afternoon painting with a bunch of the new Ai Watercolor sets (so you'll be seeing a few more from me this spring!). Today I'm sharing a card made with Wooden Chair Mini Set (Sku #4876):

I have a trio of cards to share today using Art Impressions' Nuts About You (Sku #4885). This sweet set featuring some cute little squirrels was released as a Valentine's Day stamp set, but I wanted to show you how great it is for other occasions. I've had these acorn/fall themed papers for a while, and I knew they'd be perfect with this set:
Copic Markers: Browns - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E44, E43, E41
Greens - G21, YG11, YG00
Blues - B02, B00, B000, B0000
