Beach Village Scene Card w/ NEW Art Impressions FREEBIES!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new Ai FREEBIES Village Series Stamps! The little village FREEBIES collection includes several different village houses/shops including a schoolhouse, cafe, hotel, candy shop, bakery and pet shop. Here’s the fun part …there are three add-on sets that will coordinate with these FREEBIE stamps and they include the Village Vehicles (5889), the Village Accessories (5890) and the Village Signage (5891).

One of these FREEBIES will be free with each $30 purchase and the add-on sets can be purchased as a bundle or individually. The bundle set will be at a discounted price. I will list all of these options for you down below!

Let’s start by creating the front panel for our card using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Die Set (5063) using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock.

Next, we can create the background for our scene. We will be using a two-part stamp to create the ocean and it is called the Hero Arts Beach Heroscape. For inks, we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. For added interest, we will use the white bleed proof ink and a small brush to tap some white ink onto the tops of the waves.

Once the water is stamped let’s add a bit of sand using the Oxide Inks in Antique Linen and Tattered Rose. We can also spatter the sand with a little bit of ink.

Next, we can stamp three of the little shops along the top of the sand and stamp a second time onto some Gina K Masking Magic paper. Let’s then mask the houses to that we can stamp a pretty tree in-between each of the shops … this tree image is from the Ai Village Accessories Set (5890). This will make the trees look like they are tucked in behind the houses.

Now we will have to stamp the trees again onto the same masking paper. Now all of our images will be masked so that we can ink blend the sky. For the sky, we will ink blend some more Oxide Ink using the Scattered Straw and Wild Honey.

Let’s remove the masks and color in all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Yellow, Lt Blue, Turquoise Green, Lilac, Lt Violet, Haze Blue, Lt Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Gray.

For some added interest and fun, we can use the Ai Village Signage Set (5891) to stamp the signs on each of the buildings … love this little set so much!!!

Let’s add a beach fence to the corner of the card using the Ai WC Seagull Set (5473) and with this same set let’s add some birds in the sky! We can also add a bit of foliage around the fence using the Ai WC Foliage Set 4 (5126).

Going back to the same rectangle die set let’s die cut the larger panel for the card using some woodgrain cardstock from the Ai Gnome PP 6″x6″ (5832). We will use this same paper to stamp the sentiment from the Ai Gull-friends Set (5399) that will say “Seas the Day”. To die cut the sentiment we will use the Ai Flag Double-Stitched Dies (5133) and then attach it to the front of the card.

Finally, we can assemble the card and for a finishing touch we will add some pretty gold dust gems!

If you enjoyed this Village collection you may want to check out the video that I did last week where I used the Ai Village Vehicles Set (5889) in a fun and different way and I will link that below:

Gardening Girlfriends Set – ***NEW*** Art Impressions

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun today creating a fun card using the brand-new Ai Girlfriends Gardening Set (5798). This adorable set includes three different images of these wonderful gardening ladies and the perfect coordinating sentiments!

We will begin by stamping this little lady with the gardening pots and we will also stamp and color some strawberries from the Ai Berries Set (5795). Then we will be coloring all of the images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Pale Yellow, Bright Yellow, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Geranium Red, Brown, Mid Brown, Beige, Blue Gray, May Green, Deep Green.

Next, we can create the card base with this fun lattice flap! I will show you exactly how to do this in today’s video! For the flap we will be using the Ai Decorative Journal Page Set 2 (5809). This card will measure 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard A2 size).

Now we can grab some pretty patterned papers from the Ai Gnome Paper Pack (5832) and die cut the front panel with the same Ai Decorative Journal Page Set 2 (5809) we used to create the flap. Using our paper trimmer, we will cut the floral paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Let’s assemble the card and add a fun sentiment from the Ai Little Things Sentiment Set (5797) that says ” Life is short, make it sweet!”. I thought it would be fun to have some extra strawberries falling from the basket as she was walking along. We can pop-up a few of these with some small adhesive foam squares.

This fun flap card is great for a birthday, best wishes or a friendship card!

Fun with Tim Holtz Oxide Sprays, Dies and Embossing Folders!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun today playing with our Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays to create a few backgrounds! I’ll be using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock for the card panels. This cardstock will allow the ink to flow and blend nicely and is heavy enough to avoid too much warping.

I thought I would create a loose pastel rainbow effect on each of the panels. However, for one of them we will allow a lot more blending and for the other one we will try to keep the colors a bit more separate to get more of a rainbow look.

To do our spraying we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays in the following colors: Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, and Salvaged Patina. I’ll show you in the video how I created the two different looks!

Once these panels are dry, we can grab the beautiful Tim Holtz Sizzix “Tapestry” Texture Fades embossing folder. This will add a beautiful pattern and wonderful texture to each of these panels. Although this embossing folder was released for the Fall/Halloween season, you will be amazed at how perfect it is for this card background!

Next, we can add a vintage look to the high spots on the embossed areas and some ink around the edges using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Scorched Timber.

Let’s take a look at the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Bloom, Colorize Die Set. There are two wonderful leaf sprays that we can die cut in some white cardstock. We will layer them using this white cardstock and then add some color by spattering the leaves with the various colors of Distress Inks. Let’s also add some Scorched Timber in around the edges.

For our sentiments, we will use the Tim Holtz idea-ology Quote Chips “Labels” set. This set has so many wonderful sentiments that it will be very hard to choose! We can ink around the edges of these quote chips as well.

Next, let’s assemble these items onto our card base which will be created using the Tim Holtz Distress Kraft Heavystock.

For a finishing touch, let’s add some beautiful Metallic Matte Gold Pearls!

Sweet Wishes Window Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a sweet window card today using the Ai Sweet Wishes Set (4848) and the Ai Easter Chicks Set (5401). We can stamp our images using a white pigment ink and then emboss them with the Hero Arts White Satin Pearl powder. The pearl embossing powder gives this wreath and the other images such a soft elegant look!

Using the coordinating die from the Sweet Wishes set we can die cut out the center of the wreath to create an opening for the front of our card. We will need to cut the opening in the front panel and the card itself. I will show you exactly how to do this in today’s video!

Next, we can color the images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Tea Rose, Lt Carmine, Yellow, Mustard, Pale Green, Lt Green.

Now we can use the coordinating dies, our detail scissors, a Xacto knife and cut our images. Let’s also cut a little slit in the chick so that we can place the individual rose in the chick’s hand/wing! We will be using some foam squares to pop-up the bow which will really complete this wreath nicely.

For a pretty background we will use a Hero Arts Blending Brush and the Hero Arts Key Lime Fizz ink to add some color around the edges of the panel. We will also spatter this panel with that same ink!

Let’s also cut another panel for the inside of the card using some Kiwi cardstock. We can blend this and spatter it the same way.

Our sentiment will say “Wishing you every bloomin’ thing!” and we will die cut this using the Ai Nested Square Dies (5725). The sentiment is from the Ai Mrs. Set (5405). We can add some white stitching around the sentiment using a white gel pen. This will give our sentiment a cute look! I’ll tell you a little secret about the sentiment choice and change in the video…shhh!

Finally, let’s add some Hero Arts White Pearls to the wreath for added bling and dimension. This white pearl matches the white satin pearl powder perfectly!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Don’t put your Christmas dies away yet!!! We are going to be using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Layered Stripes die set on today’s card. This fun striped die was released as part of the Christmas 2023 collection from Tim Holtz. However, we are going to completely change the look of this die by creating a vintage mixed media card!

Let’s start by selecting a few pretty papers from the TH idea-ology – Backdrops #5 paper pack. We will only be using two of the dies in this set to cut the back panel from some yellow/mustard paper and the wider stripes from a pretty floral paper.

We will do a bit of inking around the edges of these panels using the TH Distress Oxide Ink in Gathered Twigs. This will give everything a vintage look!

Let’s also create the card base using the TH Distress Kraft Heavystock and ink this around the edges as well.

We will die cut a beautiful butterfly from the TH Sizzix Thinlits – Scribbly Butterflies die set. Now we can spatter both the panel and the butterfly using the Gathered Twigs ink and some Mica Stain in Crooked Broomstick (from the Halloween collection). This will tie everything together and the mica gives these a pretty shimmer!

Next, we will be adding some TH Rock Candy Glitter and a TH idea-ology Antique Gem to this butterfly.

Finally, let’s assemble the card with some pretty velvet ribbon from the TH idea-ology Velvet Trims and a wonderful sentiment from my favorite TH idea-ology – Quote Chips – Labels. The sentiment says, “There is Beauty in Simplicity”. This vintage card can be used for almost any occasion!

***NEW*** Art Impressions Watercolor Roses!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the new Art Impressions “You’re a Gem” Blog Challenge!  The challenge is to use a bit of bling on your card or project. I’m honored to be the featured artist for this fun new challenge!

I’ve got a beautiful brand-new watercolor set to show you from Art Impressions called WC Roses (5831). This set contains several different roses and a few leaves and sprigs. I love this little set because it is so versatile and can be used with so many of your other sets!

We are going to do a bit of simple water-coloring today using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Pink, Geranium Red, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Lt Green, Green. However, we will be using a water-brush and the Zigs together for a very loose watercolor look! I love this coloring technique because it is so easy and doesn’t have to be perfect.

While we have our Zigs at hand, we can add a few spatters in the pinks and yellow/red colors. This will tie everything together!

Let’s start by die cutting two panels using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724) in white and pink cardstock. We will stamp and emboss several roses from this new set using one of my favorite embossing powders in Liquid Platinum. We will stamp the two panels at the same time using the MISTI stamp positioner. This will make the stamping so much quicker and easier. But most importantly it will allow the two panels to be exactly the same and this will be important when we cut the pink cardstock at an angle.

Let’s cut the pink panel … and I will show you exactly how I measured and cut these angles for a fun and unique look on our card!

Now we can pop-up the pink onto the white panel using some 3D Foam Tape for some added interest and dimension.

Next we can add a layer of pretty metallic silver cardstock and attach this whole piece to a white card.

Let’s add a cute little tag using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and a sentiment using the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We can also stamp this tag with another rose using the same WC Roses set.

Finally, let’s add more bling by adding a few shiny silver metallic pearls and a few dots of silver using the Signo Gel Pen!

Please join in on this new blog challenge…. I would love to see what you create!

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

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

https://youtu.be/-D6hqfXTcdY

Today we will be creating another fun tropical drink card using the Lawn Fawn Build-a-drink Cocktail Add-on set! This set compliments the original Lawn Fawn Build-a-drink set and includes a fun shaped glass as well as fruit, foliage, cherry and pick!

If you would like to check out the first video where we created a fun shaker card and I will link that here:

To set the scene for today’s card we will be using the Lawn Fawn Beach Sunset Stencil Set! This stencil set will allow us to create the most beautiful beach scene complete with the ocean, sky, sun and sand!!! It also includes the ability to create some palm trees…which we will not be using today…but would be perfect for your tropical scenes.

Let’s begin with the background using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads. For the water we will use Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, and Villainous Potion. Be sure to take your time blending these colors for the best results. Next, for the sun let’s grab the Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Squeezed Lemonade. And the sand will be done using the Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso. The liquid in the drink will be created using the Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron. I’ll show you some easy tricks and tips in the video for using your stencil to get the best results!

We will do a bit of spattering to add some interest to the sea and sand.

Let’s add a lime, cherry and foliage for color, interest and dimension. We will also grab a starfish, sand dollar and clam shell from the Lawn Fawn Life is Good stamp set.

Next we can add the “Let’s Celebrate” sentiment using the Lawn Fawn Elephant Parade Add-on stamp set. I’ll show you and easy technique for stamping this in an arched shape on your card.

Finally let’s do a quick assembly of all of our pieces and sit back and dream of summer!!!

Pretty As A Picture! (Creating A Polaroid Style Card)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge called “V is for Vacation”. This challenge is to create any summer related card or project which can include beaches, travel, picnics or anything else that makes you think of summer!

I thought it would be fun to create this “pretty as a picture” card with a beach theme since my absolute happy place is the beach. Although, I have to admit that I love the beach anytime of the year! It is especially pretty after the first snowfall of the winter season! But let’s not think about winter yet!!!

I would like to start by saying that I know that Nina, who is a fellow Design Team Member, is currently doing a beautiful series using this Polaroid theme and I did not know that at the time I created this card and video. Sometimes this can happen….so I really recommend that you check out what she has been doing….she is amazing and I know you will love her new series! Hopefully this card will just add to the fun and inspiration!

Our focal image will be from the Ai Sailboat Window Set (5448). This is a beautiful summer scene!

For the coloring today we will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Lt Violet, Yellow, Haze Blue, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Turquoise Green, May Green, Green, Lt Gray, Green Gray, Beige, Mid Brown. Once the coloring is complete we can cut and assemble our little polaroid.

Now let’s create the pretty background using the sea shells from the Ai Gull-Friends Set (5399). We will be stamping a variety of shells using the Staz-on Snowflake Ink Pad onto some Scrapbook.com Warms Smooth Cardstock.

Next we can add some sparkle and shine using the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. To do this we will place some of the ink onto our glass media mat and spritz it with a bit of water and use a small paint brush to spatter the entire panel. You really have to see this in person to see how beautiful it looks! We will also spatter this same panel with the Bleed Proof White Ink for added interest.

We can add a nice mauve colored velvet ribbon using the Tim Holtz Velvet Trims. After we add the ribbon we can pop-up this panel onto our card base. This card base is created using the Scrapbook.com Warms Smooth Cardstock.

Let’s add the “Seas the Day” sentiment using that same Ai Gull-Friends Set (5399).

Finally, we can add some pretty pink sequins from the Picket Fence Studios “all about the pinks” Sequin Mix.

This card design is so easy and fun and can be used with any of your Ai Shadowbox Window Stamp Sets….and there are so many of these to chose from…it will be difficult to decide which ones to use!

Shaker Card w/ Cozy Cat Cubbies!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a super fun shaker card to show you today! We will be using the adorable Ai Cozy Cat Cubbies Set (5098). This set has a fun cat tree/condo scratching post and several little cats, a ball of yarn, and several coordinating sentiments!

To get started let’s grab some pretty blue patterned paper and die cut the front panel for the shaker card. We will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) and Ai Oval Double Stitched Dies (5065). This will give us a pretty stitched border around the rectangle and the oval.

Next we can stamp and color all of the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Rose, Haze Blue, Smoky Olive, Plum Gray, Mustard, Lt Brown, Beige, Sand, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown, Cool Gray 6, Mid Brown, Smoky Teal. (Note: Stamp plenty of balls of yarn and color them in a variety of colors!)

Since this set does include all of the coordinating dies so we can go ahead and die cut everything!

Let’s assemble the shaker element for the card and add some chunky glitter and a bunch of the little balls of yarn! I’ll give you some tips and tricks for assembling the shaker element of the card in today’s video!

Next, we can stamp the sentiment for the card using the same set and it says “sending warm fuzzy felines”! We can die cut a small banner for the sentiment using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). Let’s pop this up for a bit of added dimension!

Finally, we can add a few pretty light blue heart gems!

This is just so cute and fun when you shake those little balls of yarn and that pretty glitter!

If you really love the “cubbies” images you may want to check out another video that I recently released: Birdhouse Cubbies Slimline Card – Adding Dimension without Pop-Dots, Gems or Bows!!!
