Lawn Fawn 3D Floral Basket Easel Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

In todays card and video we will be creating a lovely springtime 3D floral basket!! We will also add an easel to make this an extra special birthday treat!

To create this adorable basket we will be using the Lawn Fawn Build-A-Basket Die Set! We will also use some other elements from this set to create our floral arrangement. We will use the Hero Hues Reactive Ink Pads in some beautiful colors like Fruit Punch, Lemon Drop and Grape Slush to create some watercolor background which will then be used to make our flowers!

Using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Small Easel Die we will turn this 3D panel into a beautiful easel design! This really steps up the design to a new level. Not just a card….but a gift as well!

Art Impressions – Mr. Hat’s Backyard BBQ Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

I’m so excited to be sharing with you today one of the brand new stamps sets from the Hats Off Series from Art Impressions! We will be creating a fun backyard BBQ scene using the brand new Mr. Hat Set (5406)!

I absolutely love this guy and all of the fun hats that come with this set which include a chef’s hat, trapper’s hat, and a hunting hat! It also comes with some great sentiments and additional items that coordinate perfectly with this set. If you are struggling with ideas for masculine cards..like I do…then this is the perfect set to add to your collection!

To set the scene for our backyard barbecue we will use the Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) to add some feathered friends. Then we will create a beautiful night sky with some twinkling lights using the Happy Trails Set (5187), a lovely railing around the patio with the WC Arbor Set (5363), and a pretty patio wall using a fun brick stencil!

There are also two more Hats Off Sets available as well, which include Miss Hat (5404) and Mrs. Hat (5405) and I will be doing a video on each of these in the upcoming weeks!!!

This card was inspired by the new Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is to create a card with “Person-ality”! These would be projects with people and personality! Check out the link below!
