The set includes all of the dies needed to create the card base…. but the best part is that it includes the dies to create the layers for the card, as well as a couple of dies to create a pretty little flower arrangement! I’ll show you a little trick for adding a card label to the center of the card!

We will also be using the brand-new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Scorched Timber. This color is just perfect for this vintage style card, and we will use the Tim Holtz Tiny Blending Tools to blend this color perfectly.

To add even more dimension and interest we will be adding a beautiful bow using the Sizzix Thinlits – Tim Holtz – Vault Series: Christmas 2021 Die Set.

Tim Holtz Layered Stripes – Mixed Media Card!

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!

STAMPtember 2023 – SSS Exclusive Apple Cider Set!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

https://youtu.be/Sh9AtYcaRV8

It’s that time of year again and I’m so excited! The brand new exclusive STAMPtember set has been released in conjunction with Art Impressions! It is this adorable Apple Cider Set (SSE23A) which includes this wonderful little lady with her basket of apples, as well as, a glass of cider and several perfectly coordinated sentiments. There is even a little candle that can be placed in the apple to create a cute birthday card.

This is a limited edition set which once sold out will not be available again….so don’t wait….if you love it be sure to place your order as soon as possible. I think this set is going to go fast since it is just so unique and simply adorable!!!

We will stamp this little lady onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and color her using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Flesh Colour, Deep Vermillion, Apple Green, Ever Green, Blue Gray, Lt Gray, Beige, Lt Brown, Mid Brown.

To set the scene we will be stenciling a pretty sunray using the Lawn Fawn Sunray Background Stencil. We will be using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to do this and then we can spatter the background using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.

Next we can die cut the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop (Portrait) several times to create our dimensional tree. The top wood grain layer will be die cut using the brand new Art Impressions Gnome Paper Pack (5832). We can ink up the tree and frame with our sponge dauber and some Ground Espresso ink. To finish the tree we will ink up the greenery using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. We can also die cut and ink up our grassy borders this same way using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Dies. On the smaller grassy border we can stamp our adorable sentiment. We will be using the sentiment that says “Always look on the Bright Cider Life”.

Let’s also stamp and color in the “Apple Festival” banner using the Art Impressions Floral Truck Set (5511) and then add the lettering using a permanent black pen. Again we will go back to the Zigs to color these banners using Deep Vermillion, Lt Gray and Yellow.

Now we can create the leaves and the super cute little rake using the Art Impressions Harvest Journal Die Set (5592). To color in the leaves we will be using an ink smooshing technique to apply several ink colors. We will be using the Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pads in a variety of Fall colors.

Now for the fun part….assembling this fun Fall scene!

Spinner Card – There’s GNOME one like you!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

https://youtu.be/T5lJTwlxYPk

Today we will be creating one of my favorite card designs which is the super fun spinner style card! You just wind up the spinning element and then place the card in the envelope and when the recipient opens the card the cute little gnome will spin around!!! The cute front and back gnome images will come from the brand new Ai Gnomes Set (5785). This set includes this larger front and back image as well as several smaller gnomes that are simply adorable!

Let’s first create the card base using some Kraft cardstock. This square card will measure 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Next we can cut a layer of Dark Brown cardstock and the third layer will be a pretty patterned paper from the brand new Ai Gnomes Paper Pack (5832).

We will be die cutting the square openings for the card using the Ai Nested Square Dies (5725). In this video I will give you some tips and tricks for die cutting these square openings in all of the layers so that everything lines up perfectly!

So I thought it would be fun to use the Gnomes Paper Pack to do some paper piecing on our little gnome. We will stamp the image onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock…this will be the base of our gnome and then we will stamp the image a few more times onto the patterned papers that will become the hat, outfit, shoes and hands.

Next we can fussy cut these pieces and then glue them to the base image. That will just leave us to color the beard and nose and to do this we will use the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Gray Tint, and Blush.

Now we can assemble the spinner mechanism and I will give you very detailed instructions for doing this in the video. It’s super easy and fun to do!!!

For a few finishing touches let’s add some twine and a few sparkly red hearts!

I will be using the smaller gnomes in a cute card which will be coming out in the near future….so if you love these little gnomes you may want to keep and eye out for that card!

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!

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

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s video is Part 2 of a three part series using the wonderful Ai Scenic Foundations stamp sets….but we are going to be doing them in a completely different way! I want to show you how to change up the way that you use your images or the way the were intended to be used! Also, if you are a bit intimidated by the watercolor stamping techniques this three part series will give you some fun alternatives!

Today we will be creating this mixed media tag card using the Ai Scenic Foundations Village Set (5746)! As soon as I saw this image I knew it had to be used as a travel or adventure style card. My stamping friends and I always say that the stamps speak to us and tell us what to do…lol!

In Part 1, we will use 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. If you haven’t seen Part 1 yet, and you would like to, it is linked here:

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

And in Part 3, 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!

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 Bundle8

For today’s card we will start by die cutting a tag from the Scrapbook.com Yay Tag Set. Next we can stamp this beautiful scene onto the tag.

For the coloring we will be using the Tim Holtz Mini Dye Ink Pads in the following colors: Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge, Gathered Twigs, Black Soot, Aged Mahogany, Crackling Campfire Speckled Egg, Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky, and Rustic Wilderness.

We will be applying a small amount of each of these colors on to our glass media mat and picking up the colors using a #0 paint brush. Keep in mind that we want to give the images a rustic or vintage look….so we don’t want the coloring to be perfect! This combination of colors will be perfect for this aged/vintage affect.

Next we will add a bit of color around the edges of the tag using TH Gathered Twigs and Black Soot. Then let’s spatter the tag using the TH Gathered Twigs ink.

Now we can emboss background for the card using the TH Sizzix 3-D Texture Fades in the Cracked Leather….love this embossing folder! We will add some more ink to this background and spatter it as well.

To create even more texture and interest let’s take a piece of corrugated cardboard and tear the top edge and add some ink.

For some shine we will be adding the TH Distress Embossing Glaze in Fired Brick to the corrugated cardboard and the bottom of the tag! This powder is so great because it is translucent and allows the colors and images to show through!

We will also add a lovely TH Quote Chip which says “Travel the world to find the beautiful” and we will also add another sentiment which says “Adventure Awaits” from the TH Metallic Stickers.

Let’s add a few gems in a vintage looking matte gold color!

Keep an eye out for Part 3 next Wednesday!

Sizzix “You are so cool” Card (using the Crazy Characters #2 Set)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a super fun summer card to show you today! This sweet Popsicle card will be created using the Sizzix Thinlits w/ Stamps – Crazy Characters #2 Set. This cute set includes the popsicle, a volcano, and a beautiful sun!

Let’s start by inking up some cardstock for our Popsicle colors using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo. For the Popsicle stick we will be using Antique Linen.

What makes this die set so easy to use is that it cuts out the base of the Popsicle as well as the layers and sprinkles (aka shots!).

We will die cut the layers from all of the pretty pastel papers that we colored and then mix and match them for the little Popsicles. If you want to create the look of a little bite being taken from one of the Popsicles you can go ahead and do this now using a scalloped circle die from the Sizzix Framelits w/ Stamps – Circle Sentiments Set.

Next we can add the sprinkles and then add some clear glaze over the top to give them the look of being frozen. While the glaze is still wet we can add a bit of glitter for some added interest!

For the base of the card we will die cut two stitched panels from the Lawn Fawn Slimline Stackables Dies. The largest one will get colored using the same 4 pastel colors we used previously and then with the smaller panel we will emboss this using the Sizzix 3-D Textured Impresssions – Tropical Leaves embossing folder.

On this embossed panel we will be adding some baker’s twine in those same pastel colors and tying a knot on the front of the panel.

For the larger panel we can add a sentiment from this same stamp set that says “You are so” and next we can die cut the work “cool” from the Sizzix Thinlits – Essential Type alphabet set. We can add some of that same glaze to the letters to give them the same glossy shine as the Popsicles!

Let’s assemble our fun summery card! This card can be used for so many occasions including birthday, hello, and thinking of you cards!

I Hope are all having a great summer filled with family, friends and good times!!!

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

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I am starting a three part series using the wonderful Ai Scenic Foundations stamp sets….but we are going to be doing them in a completely different way! I want to show you how to change up the way that you use your images or the way the were intended to be used! Also, if you are a bit intimidated by the watercolor stamping techniques this three part series will give you some fun alternatives!

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

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.

And in Part 3, 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!

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

Let’s first stamp the image onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock in a light gray ink. This light inking will allow us to determine where to place our masking tape and where to apply ink for the sky, beach and water. Next we can mask off sections of the card panel and ink one section at a time.

Now we can stamp the images onto some pretty patterned paper from the Ai Easter Paper Pack to create our cabin, beach umbrella, hat and sailboats! We will do some fussy cutting and then we can attach these to some white cardstock.

Once these items are assembled, we can attach the items onto the background using the original stamping to line up the images.

Now we can take the pretty scallop die from the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and die cut the scene and a white scallop panel as well. We can glue these two together by offsetting them a bit to create a white edge on the top and left side.

Next we can use the Sizzix 3-D Embossing Folder – Tropical Leaves to add some dimension to the card panel. Let’s also ink this up with the Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers ink. This will highlight the details of the embossing!

We can now wrap some pretty violet/white twine around the card panel and tie a bow!

Let’s assemble the card and add a few pretty gems to tie everything together!

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!

Tim Holtz Road Trip … w/ Mountain Scene Layering Stencil!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’m so excited to be showing a couple of great products! We will be using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Road Trip Colorize die set today! This set is absolutely fantastic and includes the dies needed to create this fun car and some clouds, trees and a cute little sign! If you haven’t used these colorize dies yet you will see how easy it is to do….and it is so much fun!

And I’m equally as excited to show you this amazing 4-part Layering Mountain Scene Stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop! I’ll give you a few tips for stenciling this in today’s video. This stencil is so versatile and could be used with so many of our stamp sets.

To do all of the coloring today we will be using several of the TH Distress Oxide Ink Pads! We will quickly spatter the background of the scene using the Dr Ph Martin’s Bleed Proof White Ink. This will just bring everything together.

We will be creating a woodgrain frame for the scene using the Th Distress Woodgrain Cardstock. I’ll show you some tips for coloring this cardstock and creating a realistic woodgrain look! And for the road at the bottom of the card we will be using the TH 3-D Texture Fades Embossing Folder – Cobblestone #2. This will add lots of texture and dimension! We can a bit of ink to this panel for a more realistic look!

Now we can die cut all of the pieces needed to create the car and sign. I’ll show you how to easily assemble these in the video.

Finally we can wrap some twine around the bottom of the card and add a little charm from the TH idea-ology – Word Tags. Let’s also add a metal star to the sign which is from the TH idea-ology Adornments – Stars and also add the “good life” sentiment to the sign using the TH idea-ology Remnant Rubs – Tiny Text.

I hope this video will show you how easy it is to use these COLORIZE die sets and the fantastic results you can get!
