STAMPlorations Designer Spotlight - Dee's Artsy Impressions

Hello friends, today at the STAMPlorations blog we are spotlighting two of my newly designed sets for my stamp line Dee's Artsy Impressions. Please leave a comment here and on the STAMP blog for your chance to win.
Dee's Artsy Impressions
I am excited as I have one more set designed in my Kathryn series and its "Kathryn's Rainbow" besides this set I have a masculine set "Strongest Dad Ever", though Father was the main idea behind the design of this set but you can always use it for all kinds of masculine set and also for Coffee lovers designs :)

So let me show you the cards I made using these sets ...

To make this card, I took a water color card stock die cut a rectangular panel, added some masking tape at the lower edge and water colored it after stamping the cloud and the rainbow.  To get that dark sparkly background, I mixed pearl with black. On the card base I added rainbow stripes from colorful card stock and stuck it on black panel. To add more interest, I added a clothespin and twine :)

For my second card, stamped the image and water colored it. I also cut and added layers of patterned paper for this fun design :)

Now the other set...
This is a pretty simple card, I stamped the image in archival ink and water colored to create my mountains... that was free hand. I then went along the edges of the cup with a grey alcohol marker, it make the ink bleed giving the image some dimension :)
For this one I did some paper piecing and added a twine to indicate that the cup is a gift :) I just love the plaid... who doesn't :D So that makes for a Clean and Simple card
This one is more of a collage look, I did combine some patterned papers and stamps and dies for this design :) Just to showcase that you can do so much with this set :)

Let me first showcase my creations. I had so much fun playing with the new dies :)

For my first card I decided to make a baby card using the Shaker Balloon #2 Star dies. I used a blue patterned paper along with the neutral card stock to make my shaker. For the string I added some die cut circles (using ATC Tag Builder) and colored these with my Spectrum Noir Markers. To finish the card I assembled it all along with the Congrats word die after heat embossing the sentiment (from the Baby Bump set).
Here is a little closeup :) 

My second is a Thank you card, here I die cut a leaf from the die cut gift box for my focal image. On a kraft card stock I stamped the twig and leaves and berries in white ink and colored those with pencil colors. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment. I have used Gift Builder #1, Frames and Flowers, Friends and Flowers for sentiment and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
Coloring with Prisma color pencils is fun and I like how versatile my Frames and flowers set can be :) Here is a closeup. I used some wink of stella on the gift box. I couldn't capture it so well on camera.

For my third card I used the cupcake die in a unique way to make my floral basket. This one is pure assemblage of die cuts and a little inking :) I have used Friends and Flowers for sentiment. Cupcake Builder #1, Shaker Balloons #3 Oval, Shaker Balloons #1 Heart, Clustered Hearts Dies, Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and Trendy Spring Bloom Dies


Now to my final creation, this is simple stamping and coloring with Markers. The card panel is inked with distress inks :) I am showcasing the Blossom Sprays #1 in my floral cluster series :) For the sentiment I have used
Here are a couple of closeups! There will soon be another post where I will share cards using all of my Blossom series :) I am pretty excited about that one. You will see a lot of styles we can do with these :)
