AiDT Reunion Blog Hop + Ai Spinners Release

Ai Reunion-1

Hi! Welcome to the reunion blog hop for Art Impressions! You should have arrived from Isha Gupta‘s blog. If this is your first stop, please start at the beginning, you won’t want to miss out on the awesome inspiration and prizes!

Spinner Graphic

Today I’ve used 4679 – Witch Spinner & 4698 – Witch Spinner Dies to create this little treat bag for a Halloween party! I want to tell you what I used to color my image, however, I’m more curious to know what you THINK I used. Being a certified Copic Instructor, you would likely guess Copics, however, I actually used Sharpies! I used yellow, orange, red, purple, green, brown and silver. I used Glue Lines to adhere the bling to the bag and Pop-Up Glue Dots to adhere the rosette, the Witch from Ai and the banner that says “Happy Halloween!”

Papertrey Ink June


Good morning!!

Here is Papertrey’s June inspiration…

And here is my take…

I used roses. I sprayed a bundle with three different Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays.

Tainted Love Teal (*NEW*)

Rhododendron Red Rose

Amaryllis Burgundy

Cosmopolitan Pink (*NEW*)

I stamped using VersaFine in Onyx Black and Spanish Moss.

Pattern Paper is October Afternoon.

Happy hopping friends!!

Now, with out further ado, my project! (You can click on the photos to see the detail better.)

This was very simple. First, I picked a stamp. Then I used a piece of foam cut and dry to apply duo to the stamp itself. I then stamped the image on the piece of white cardstock. Once the duo was dry (but sticky) I laid down the Gildenglitz over top of the stamped areas and then used the textured sponge to rub away the Gilding.

Now hop on over to Jan Hennings, and make sure you leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway!
