Art Impressions Wedding/Birthday Cake Cards w/ Embossed Stencil Technique

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In todays video we will be creating two cards! The first card will be a 3-tiered wedding cake with some beautiful flowers and vines! We will be using the brand new Ai Birthday Cake GCH (5407) to create the cake and frosting and we will also be using the Ai Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) to stamp and die cut some flowers and vines to decorate our fancy cake! We will use some beautiful Rose Gold Embossing Powder to make some yummy frosting!

I will also be showing you how to emboss your cardstock by using your stencils. This is really easy to do and is another fun way to use your stencils to add texture and dimension to your cards!

This Birthday Cake GCH set is designed to work with the Envelope GCH Die set to create and little gift card holder pocket/envelope. Just a reminder that these sets will need to be purchased separately and there are several cute die sets that coordinate with this Envelope GCH Set ( Java, Snowman, Black Cat, Pumpkin, Santa)…so be sure to check those out as well!!!

For our second card, we will use the leftover flowers to quickly and easily create a matching Birthday Cake Card with some simples stenciling and a birthday candle!

Art Impressions Mini Slimline Slider Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In today’s video and card we will be creating a fun mini slimline slider card using the Art Impressions Slider Die (4764)! We will also add a hidden sentiment behind the slider using a sweet sentiment from the Mrs. Set (5405) which says “If friends were flowers I’d pick you!”.

We will create a potting shed for our little lady using the Miss Set (5404), Potting Shed MTF (5028), and the Wood Frames Set (5269). I will show you how to easily select elements of these stamps to create our scene.

We will add some adorable little birds and some potted flowers using the HM Garden Set (5096). The best part is that the recipient of this card could use the slider insert as a fun bookmark!!!

I will show you all of the coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens!

Art Impressions Mini Slimline Perfect Partners w/ Metallic Gilding/Opal Polish

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will use the Flamingo Twist Ties Set (4984) in a new way to create a fun mini slimline card!!! So rather than create a twist card I thought that we would create an anniversary card with a beautiful tropical background.

To create this textured background we will be using the Sizzix 3D Textured Impressions Tropical Leaves embossing folder. And to give this background a little bit of shimmer and interest we will use the beautiful metallic gilding/opal polish from Creative Expressions. I will show you my Creative Expressions Gilding/Opal Polish sample booklet in this video and if you would like to learn a lot more about this product you can click here Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades Cards with Metallic Gilding Polish

Finally, we will add some floral sequins, pearlescent vellum, and Nuvo Dream Drops to finish the look!
