Fun Floral Truck Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s feature card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Birds of a Feather” which is to incorporate a bird or birds on your card or project!

I thought it would be fun to create a scene where the Ai Floral Truck Set (5511) would look like a little pop-up floral shop. So, let’s begin by stamping the images from this set, as well as a few birds from the Ai Birds and Bugs Set (5561), and a pretty topiary from the Ai Front Porch Garden Set (5486). All of the coloring today will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Lilac, Lt Violet, Deep Red Grape, Deep Vermillion, Deep Red, Lt Gray, Gray, Cool Gray 6, Beige, Mid Brown, Haze Blue, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Persian Green, Blue Gray, Dk Agate, Lt Green, Green.

To ground the scene, we will be stamping a brick walk using the Sunny Studio Sprawling Surfaces Stamp Set. This set has three different images including this brick walk as well as wood planks and a stone path!

Once the brick walk is stamped and colored, we can add a pretty sky by ink blending some orange and yellow inks!

Next, we can assemble the card, popping up some of the items for added interest and dimension. Don’t forget to add those adorable little birds and bees! To layer up the card we will use some pretty polka dot paper from the Ai Easter S2 Paper Pack (5892).

We can also add some baker’s twine and tie a bow at the top of the card! And as you probably already know, I have been trying to complete my cards by adding a sentiment and an interesting element to the inside of the card. For this card, I added a sentiment from the Ai Mrs. Set (5405) which says, “Wishing you every Bloomin’ Thing!” and another cute flowerpot as well as a little bee!

Please check out the entire Ai Front Porch Series for lots of little elements that can be incorporated into your scene cards and also the Ai Rides Series which includes this floral truck as well as a Birthday Buggy, Christmas Truck, Spooky Wagon and some sweet add-ons!

Bunny Gift Card Holders – ***NEW*** Art Impressions

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun with the brand-new Ai Bunny Gift Card Set (5872) to create the cutest little gift card holders! This set is a great add-on product to use with your Ai Envelope Gift Card Holder (5344).

We will create two bunnies today… one with white cardstock and the other with some Kraft cardstock. We can go ahead and die cut all of the pieces. These dies are labeled for you on the back of the packaging so that you will know exactly which part of the bunny you are die cutting.

We will add some color to the bunny using some Distress Oxide Inks using a foam applicator tool. This way we can add some shadowing and color to the face, ears, paws and bow. For the bow we will be using some pretty glitter papers! Keep in mind that you could use some patterned papers if you prefer.

Next, let’s assemble the bunny and add a little heart in the bunny’s paws. This set does come with an Easter egg that can be placed here … but you could place a flower, sentiment or anything you like here if you wish. That way you could use this set all throughout the year for almost any occasion!

We can die cut the Ai Envelope Gift Card Holders and do a quick assembly and then next add some color to these as well.

Next, we will add some details with a permanent black pen. Let’s also add stitched lines to the ears, some lines on the paws, and some little whiskers!

You probably already know how much I like wiggly eyes … and I just had to add them to these bunnies! Let’s also add some dimension to the nose using a lacquer pen in pink. These little touches really add so much to the face and just make me smile!

Finally, I also wanted to add a cute fluffy tail to each of these bunnies using some sparkly pom-poms!

If you enjoyed this bunny add-on set, you may enjoy the other add-on products and videos using the Envelope GCH which I have done. Please feel free to check these out below:

***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!

Tim Holtz Sparkle and Wine Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s play with the brand-new Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades “Sparkle” Embossing Folder! We are going to “double” emboss this folder on our card today.

We will start by running the embossing folder through the die cutting machine as we would normally do. Next, we will use the Tim Holtz Embossing Pen and Embossing Glazes to add another layer of embossing. All we need to do is apply some embossing ink (from the embossing pen) to the high spots on the cardstock and then apply some embossing glaze in a variety of bright colors. Heat set this and check out the wonderful dimension, color and shine that you get!

Keep in mind that you could totally change the look of this embossing folder. For example, this would be beautiful with gold, silver and copper for a more elegant look! Have some fun with this!

Let’s ink up the card panel using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. Remember to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas because the ink just won’t dry on the embossing glaze.

Now we can stamp and color the wine bottle and wine glass and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Deep Red, Yellow, Mustard, Beige, Mid Brown, Haze Blue. These images are from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous – Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set – Wine Blueprint and Strip sets. Although these images have been around for a bit, they are absolute classics and make a great addition to your crafty stash.

We will add the sentiment using the Tim Holtz idea-ology Theories Quote Chips which will say “love with all your heart”. Just ink the edges a bit to finish off this quote chip.

Next, we can assemble the card panel onto a black card base, and we will also add a few sparkly hearts to each of the wine glasses using the Buttons Galore & More Red Hearts.

This card would be great for New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Wedding, Congratulations, Birthday and so much more!!!

Clean & Simple Vellum Overlay Cards using the Ai Scenic Foundations (PART 3 of 3)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today is Part 3 of our Scenic Foundations series and we will be creating a set of note cards by stenciling a pretty sunburst background with a vellum overlay by using the remaining four sets from the Summer of 2023 release (SF Wooden Cabin, SF Stone Bridge, SF Cottage Creek, SF Picket Fence)! These are clean and simple cards that are very easy to mass produce!

In Part 1, we used the SF Beach Cabin Set (5749) to create a beautiful background using some masking tape and the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. This is a simple and easy way to set the scene for our Scenic Foundations stamps.

Masking An Easy Background using the Ai Scenic Foundations (PART 1 OF 3)

In Part 2, we will be creating a mixed media tag card using the SF Village Set (5746) and a water coloring technique using the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Pads.

Mixed Media Tag Card using the Ai Scenic Foundations (PART 2 OF 3)

We will be using all of the Scenic Foundations in the three part series…so for a 15% savings you may be interested in the entire collection bundle deal listed and linked here:

5796 – 6pc Scenic Foundations Bundle – https://shrsl.com/45ia8

To set the scene for today’s cards we will be using the Lawn Fawn Sunray Background Stencil on each of the cards using some the Hero Arts Reactive Ink Pads in Fruit Punch, Lemon Drops, and Creamsicle and the Hero Arts Blending Brushes.

Next we can die cut a rectangular frame for each of the cards using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724). We will place one smaller rectangle inside the larger one to create the frames. We will use the larger rectangle die to cut the vellum paper that we will then place behind each of the frames!

Let’s go ahead and stamp each of our four Scenic Foundations stamps onto the vellum rectangles using the Staz-on Jet Black Ink Pad.

Now we can attach the vellum to the frames and pop these up using some foam strips. Now when you look through the vellum you will see a softer version of the sunray background and around the edges you will see the more vibrant pattern. I just love how this looks!

Using the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735) or the Ai Friend Sentiments Set (5734) we can add a simple sentiment to each of the note cards using the Ai Journal Template Dies (5543) banner die.

As a finishing touch let’s add some Ombre’ Glitter Drops from the Pinkfresh Studio Sparkle and Shine collection!

If you are giving these as a gift you can add some envelopes, maybe a pretty pen, and some postage stamps to complete the gift!

Hot Foiling and Resist Stenciling – Elegant Fall Card

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Fall card with stenciling, embossing and foiling! This card will have lots and lots of beautiful layers which will add so much interest to our card!

We will die cut a Hero Arts Infinity Heart Die and then we will stencil it with the Echo Park Designer Stencil from the Fall Fever Collection and this one is called Leaf Pile.

To begin the stenciling, we will use a variety of Distress Oxide Inks in some pretty Fall colors. And then….for a bit of added interest and dimension we will lay the stencil back down over the colored leaves and ink it up with some clear embossing ink and then add clear embossing powder. Now we can add some ink around the edges of the heart and the embossed area will resist the ink. Next we can spatter the entire heart and add some metallic pearls!

For one of the background layers and the sentiment, we will add some gold foiling using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and some Glimmer Plates. I’ll give you some tips and tricks for doing some easy foiling!

The card and layers are from the Welcome Fall – Carta Bella Coordinating Solids Paper Pack. Next we can quickly layer up the card on a top folding card base from some Kraft cardstock.

This card was created as a Congratulations card but could certainly be easily adapted to become a Thanksgiving or Fall card!

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!
