The new Art Impressions challenge is a fun one called "Cutting Edge." I recently bought the new Art Impressions stamp set called Never Too Old.
I LOVE this set stamp set with its funny sentiments and woman image. I can see making lots of humorous cards with it.
I used Sizzix Card Basic Step-Ups die to create my card. I cut the card from a bright green cardstock. The patterned paper is by Die Cuts With A View from a stack in my stash.
I stamped four sentiments with black ink on white cardstock. I stamped the image on white cardstock with black ink and colored it with alcohol markers (Copic and Spectrum Noir). I fussy cut out the image and then adhered all to the card as shown. A twine bow and a few sequins were all it needed for the finishing touches.
I had this card sitting on our kitchen island when my husband came home. He had lots of compliments for it. He thought I had designed the card with its cuts and folds. I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm not that talented plus I was enjoying the praise. ;) I'll tell him "later." (Big wink.)
I went a head and stamped an envelope for it too. One of my friends has a birthday coming up in April and I think it will be perfect for her. We like sending funny cards to each other. :) This partying lady is joining these challenges:
