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 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!

Art Impressions Masculine Scene Card and Gift Card Holder

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!!

In today’s video and card I thought I would create a masculine scene card and matching gift card holder.

Shhhhh…don’t tell my husband that this is his Valentine Card Set! He loves the outdoors and takes long walks everyday….rain, shine or snow. So I thought that it would be fun to create a peaceful winter scene using the beautiful “As the Deer” stamp set (5128) and the sentiment “Life with you is Wonderful” from the “Enjoy the Ride” stamp set (5186)!

This is a very simple scene to create. So if you are little bit intimidated about trying an elaborate watercolor scene card then this might be just the card for you!

To set the scene I have used a wonderful Sizzix 3-D Textured Embossing Folder with Jeweled Snowflakes!

I think this could also be used for a retirement (which I show an example), birthday, anniversary, or even a sympathy card due to its peaceful nature!
