Art Impressions and Julie Nutting Prima Stamp


Happy Labor Day!
I have enjoyed the long weekend- spending time with family and friends!  I managed to squeeze in a little time at my LSS Absolutely Everything and purchased some new stamps and more paper! I was going to live without the paper but Paige was with me and I told her to pick out some paper and she did a fabulous job!

I used a recent OWH sketch for the first card made with the Prima stamp. I love that these stamps are also sized for A-2 cards...even without a face- I love the images!  I rotated the sketch... this is one I will use again! I used Copic X-press it for my image, tuxedo black Memento ink and papers from American Crafts 'spooky'.  Clear glaze from Sakura on the bat and her shoes added some shine.

I could not resist the sweet images from Art Impressions Mini Front and Backs...Elf and Reindeer set along with the matching dies. And this was perfect for the challenge posted at AI
My photo is crooked since the reflection from my light kept showing on the acetate window. I used papers from Jillibean Soup; winter tortellini and spinach soup 6x6 pad. The window, drapes and tree dies are all by Memory Box. I perched the cute deer on top of a snow his face!


I continue to make cards for OWH-even though they need less cards- that is a great thing! I feel like I now have more time to make cards for special people in my life.... I have a care package ready for the post office and I will be adding some cards to that box...with the hopes that the recipient sends the cards to someone very special! I do not to post too much and ruin the surprise but I will post more information soon! LOL
Have a wonderful week,


  1. Great cards; love the deer peeking out the window. Too cute!

  2. Three fantastic cards, Diane. I think it was a good idea to take Paige with you shopping because she did pick out some great papers. Your first card is perfect for a teen and your second card made me smile immediately. I adore that way yo finished off the inside. Wishing you a great week ahead.

  3. Awesome cards, Diane!!! Love the reindeer peeking in the window!! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talents with us at Art Impressions!
