Art Impressions Windows to the World – Bridge Card!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

For todays video and card, I am so excited to be sharing a brand new Art Impressions product with you today! We will be creating a Windows to the World Card which is a wonderful shadowbox on the inside of our card!!! I will be giving you a few tips on how to easily and quickly create this shadowbox design!

We will be using the brand new Bridge Window Accessory Set (5412) to create our little scene. However, there are several new designs available. They include the Deer Window (5411), Mailbox Window (5410) and Boat Window (5409) Accessory Sets. These are all so beautiful and each one comes with the coordinating die for the pop-up element on your shadowbox as well as a sentiment around each of the images! Please keep in mind that you will need the Shadowbox Window Set (5408) in order to create any of these shadowbox cards!

I decided to go with a simple yet elegant black, gray and white color scheme but you can certainly go as colorful as you wish. That is the fun of these little scenes….they are fun on their own or as part of this shadowbox design.

The sun will pop-up from behind our grassy border and provide a big smile! We will create an adorable picnic scene with the Lawn Fawn Crazy Antics Stamps and Die Set.

Art Impressions Easter Bunny Cards w/ Acrylic Block Stamping

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In today’s card and video we will be using the adorable little Easter Bunnies Stamp Set (5274)!

We will be doing some easy and fun acrylic block stamping. If you haven’t tried this yet you will definitely want to give it a try. To apply the ink to our acrylic blocks we will be using the water based dual tip markers from Tombow. You will see that just by using different size acrylic blocks or different shapes you will get a fun variety of looks! I will give you fair warning…this is a very addicting technique!!!

I have intentionally not colored in the images to show you how you can quickly create several cards with this technique! And if you don’t love coloring then you will love the simplicity of the black stamping on white cardstock!
