Interactive Fishing Boat (New Addition to the Ai Rides Series!)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got the greatest brand-new set to show you today! This set is the Ai Fishing Boat Set (5926) and is a wonderful new addition to the Ai Rides Seres! The Ai Ride Series are interactive sets that currently include the Floral Truck Set (5511), Christmas Truck Set (5457), Spooky Wagon Set (5456), Birthday Buggy Set (5455) and a few additional add-on sets! I will link a few of the previous videos down below that I have done using these sets if you would like to check those out.

This new Fishing Boat Set includes the coordinating dies and sentiments. When you die cut the boat it creates a slit in the side of the boat where you can slide in the cute little fishing net, oars, cooler, fishing pole, bucket of fish, and anchor! This is a super fun interactive set that can easily be combined with your others sets from the ride series!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Ai “Stars and Stripes” Blog Challenge, which is to incorporate anything red, white and blue. For this card we will grab the American Flag from the Ai Front Porch Patriotic Set (5494) as a fun addition to our boat!

Let’s stamp and color all of the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Lt Pink, Geranium Red, Yellow, Haze Blue, Lt Blue, Blue, Beige, Brick Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Warm Gray 6. Using the coordinating dies we can cut these out.

For the background layers we will use the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies to cut the blue/white striped layer. This paper is from the Ai Christmas Magic (5853) Paper Pack. Next, we can cut two more smaller panels for the water and sky. One of these panels will create the waves and we will create these using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Simple Wavy Borders Dies.

Now we can do some ink blending for the water and waves using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. For the water we will also spatter the waves using both the blue ink and some white ink.

Let’s also stamp one of the sentiments from this same set. Now we can assemble the boat and all of the fun little pieces and add it to our layered card base!

I added so many items to the boat that I really hope it doesn’t sink…lol…but I just couldn’t stop myself!

Here are a few of the other Interactive Ride Series videos that I mentioned earlier:

Staying Hydrated Layered Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a super fun layered card today using…my favorite…circle shapes!!! We will be using the brand-new Ai Stay Hydrated (5928) Set. This adorable set includes this lovely lady with her favorite tumbler. The best part is that the tumblers can be customized by using the tumbler insert stamps. There is an animal print, camouflage, geometric patterns, and paw prints! Pick the pattern that suits you the best! There are also several coordinating sentiments, and we will be using three of them on today’s card. And finally, the dies are included!

Let’s stamp this cute little lady and stamp the camouflage on our tumbler. I’ll show you a little trick for easily lining up the tumbler pattern inserts.

Next, we can color the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Lt Pink, Pale Rose, Yellow, Ice Blue, Sea Green, Gray Tint, Brick Beige, Beige, Mocha Brown.

For the card layers we will use the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) to cut some kraft cardstock and striped paper. The pretty patterned papers will all be from the Ai Easter Paper Pack (5892). With these papers we will cut a variety of circles using the Ai Circle Double Stitched Dies (5064).

Let’s quickly stamp some sentiments on these circles. Now we can assemble the layers and circles, popping up some of our layers for added interest.

To add a bit of sparkle we can use the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and add it to the tumbler, shoes and sunglasses!

As a finishing touch, let’s add some pretty gems in pink, clear and white!

So Sweet Armfuls of Honey w/ Hexagon Shaped Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Ai “Panda-Monium!” Blog Challenge which is to create black and white cards! But you can certainly add an additional pop of color as we will be doing today! So, I thought it would be fun to create a hexagon style card using the brand-new Ai So Sweet Armful Set (5904). This little set includes the sweet bear that we will be using today as well as an elephant and a few items for these critters to hold which include a cupcake and a heart. There is also sentiment that says, “You’re so sweet!” and we will be using that on the inside of the card. You will love these “armful” images because they come with the coordinating dies that will cut a slit above and below the arms so that they can hold the cupcake or heart…or anything else you would like!

There are two new “Armful” sets available now and they include this set that we will be using today as well as Ai Treasured Armful Set (5903). The Treasured set includes a beautiful mermaid and a cute little pup as well as a treasure box and seashell. The sentiment for this set says, “You’re a treasure”. You can easily mix and match these two brand-new sets for some additional card possibilities!

Let’s start by creating our hexagon card base using the Ai Hexagon Double Stitched Dies (5135) and black 100lb cardstock. I’ll give you a few tricks and tips for creating this fun shaped card design in today’s video!

Let’s also die cut some smaller hexagons out of some white 100lb cardstock. For the smaller one we will be adding some beautiful yellow Vicki Boutin texture paste with a hexagon pattern using the Lawn Fawn Honeycomb Stencil. This will add so much texture and interest to our card. After the paste has dried completely, we can add some Distress Oxide in Wild Honey around the edges of our two layers.

Now that our card base and layers are complete, we can stamp our “armful” bear and some little bees from the Ai Birds and Bugs Set (5561). We can also stamp a vase from the Ai WC Small Container Set (4869) to hold some sweet honey!

Now we can color in all of these images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Pink Haze, Haze Blue, Yellow, Mustard, Lt Brown, Blue Gray, Lt Gray, Warm Gray 6. All of these images have coordinating dies so we can easily cut them out! Don’t forget to add a bit of sparkle to the wings of the bees using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.

Let’s go ahead and add the little pot of honey to our bear and add some Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in Sunshine to the top of the pot. This will give the look and dimension of some honey in the jar!

We can pop-up the bear and bees and add some black and white baker’s twine to bring in the challenge color combination a bit more!

For a finishing touch, we can add another small hexagon on the inside of the card, add a bit of ink around the edges, stamp the sentiment, and add one more bee!

We hope you join us in this fun challenge…we would love to see what you create!

Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Root Beer Add-on Cards!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today let’s create two fun interactive Flop-Cards using the new Lawn Fawn Build-a-drink Root Beer Add-on Dies. This fun die set is a wonderful addition to the “Build-a-drink” series. The original sets included the LF Build-a-drink and the LF Build-a-drink Cocktail Add-on. Keep in mind that these sets can all be mixed and matched to create some wonderful projects! I have done videos on both of these original sets which I will link here for you:

Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Shaker Card!

Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-on Card!

In today’s video I will show you exactly how to cut and score your cardstock to create this fun interactive card design. Once we have created the card base, we can add some fun stenciling using the LF Paint Spatter Background Stencil. This will make it look like the root beer and beer have splashed across our cards.

Next, let’s grab these fun new dies and die cut them from some white smooth cardstock and then we can color them using a blending brush and a variety of inks. For the liquid we can splatter these with a bit of water to create the look of bubbles!

With a few layers of coordinating cardstock, we can layer some plaids and solids and a pretty woodgrain pattern to set the scene for the cards.

For the sentiments, we can use the LF Berry Special Stamp Set for the “Have a Happy Birthday” and let’s use an alphabet die set to die cut the letters for the word “beer-y” out of some coordinating cardstock.

For a finishing touch we can add a few clear gems to enhance that bubbly look!

These cards are so quick and easy to make that you will want to create several of them and keep them in your stash for future birthdays!
