Tim Holtz Ephemera Card w/ NEW Sizzix – Card Label Die Set!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s play with some of our Tim Holtz idea-ology ephemera, papers, and stickers today! And to best highlight these items we are going to be using the brand-new Sizzix Thinlits – Jen Long – Card Label Die Set! This new die set will create the perfect interactive element for our card. 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!

I’ll give you all of the instructions for easily assembling this fun interactive card in today’s video!

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. This bow is so easy to assemble… just two dies needed! Let’s also add a pretty border using the Sizzix Thinlits – Tim Holtz – Crochet Border Die Set.

Finally, let’s add some pretty matte gold gems to tie everything together!

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!!!

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!

Art Impressions Blooming Window Shadowbox Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today I’m really happy to be showing you a brand new release from the Ai Spring 2022 Collection! This beautiful new Ai Blooming Window Set (5450) includes a separate die which will cut out the little potted plant. This little planter can be popped up inside the shadowbox window! However, we will be using it in a slightly different way today by stamping it twice and adding those planters to the bottom of our card! The sentiment that goes all around the image says ” May the coming year be blooming with happiness and many moments to remember”….so pretty!

We will die cut a rectangle using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Die Set (5063) from some pretty plaid paper. Now using a standard A2 size top folding card we can cut out the opening for the shadowbox window. Next, I will show you how to create the shadowbox window on this card…but do keep in mind that you do need the Shadowbox Window Die Set (5408) in order to create the shadowbox feature.

The best part about this shadowbox feature is that it folds flat when the card is closed for easy mailing!

We will do all of our coloring today using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers as follows: Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Spiced Marmalade.

Now we can die cut the sentiment that is included in the Shadowbox Window Set which says “Hello”. We will die cut this three times and stack these up to create a thick embellishment which we will then add some clear glitter pen. This will give our sentiments some dimension and sparkle!

Next let’s add a few enamel dots in a pretty coral color!

Art Impressions – Create Your Own Custom Window Garden Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

In today’s video we will be creating our very own Custom Window Garden Card! It’s really fun and easy to create…and it is a great way to stretch your stamps and dies.

We will start by die cutting a large rectangle from the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) from some white 100lb cardstock. Then we will use a few of the smaller rectangles from this set, as well as, a few square dies from the Ai Square Double Stitched Dies (5061) to create our custom frame openings.

For stamps we will be using the Ai MB Garden Set (5444) … and these small images will fit perfectly into our little openings. Don’t forget to mix and match your stamp sets to create your unique custom windows!!!

Let’s use some pretty polka dot paper for the front of the card and a beautiful yellow variegated paper for the inside of our frames. I’ll give you some tips for perfectly lining up the frames on the polka dot paper with the frames that you have already cut from your white cardstock.

Now we can stamp and color all of our images! The coloring was done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Peach Pink, Dk Pink, Lt Violet, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Lt Blue, Cornflour Blue, Turquoise Green, Lt Green, May Green, Gray Brown, Olive Green, Mid Green, Green, Beige, and Mid Brown.

We will add a few little enamel dots to fill in some of the open areas of the windows and then we will add a few flowers to the front of the card using the Ai Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346)!

Please note……this card could easily be turned into a fun shaker card with a few modifications!!!

This card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge – Fun with Flowers which is linked below. Please feel free to enter a card or project of your own into our challenge or just check out all of the inspiration from you crafty peers!

Art Impressions – New Release – Farmhouse Front Porch Door Card!!!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

For todays video I have another wonderful new stamp and die set from the Art Impressions Spring 2022 Release!!! We will be using the Ai Front Door Porch Set (5512) and the Ai Farmhouse Front Porch Door Set (5490). Do keep in mind that these two sets are sold separately…but once you have purchased the Front Porch Door Set you will be able to use it with all of the other add-on sets including the Easter Set, Garden Set, Party Set, and Farmhouse Set!!!

Let’s start by coloring in all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Yellow, Mustard, Brick Beige, Lt Gray, Mid Green, Olive Green, Green, Mid Brown, Blue Gray, Peacock Blue, Deep Red. This set contains some beautiful potted plants, a wreath, a cute “Hello” sign, a lantern, some cute sentiments, and so much more!

To create a beautiful woodgrain background we will be using a Wood Plank 3D Embossing Folder. We will add some color to this by inking up the embossing folder and running it through the die cutting machine. This will apply the ink and do the embossing all at the same time!!! This is a simple and fun technique for your embossing folders!

Let’s turn this into an easel card so that the recipient can display this on a tabletop! This is a simple, yet fun way to add extra interest to your card! I’ll show you how to easily turn a basic card design into an easel card.

I had previously done a card using the Front Porch Easter Set which is linked below!!! This Easter set contains some lovely flowers, and egg wreath, and Easter basket, a few cute little birdhouses, a cart full of bunnies, and much more!

This collection is part of a series which will allow you to create a unique and beautiful shadowbox window on the inside of your card. We will be using the Swing Window Set (5452) which was part of the wonderful Fall 2021 release. There is a little girl on a swing and her faithful friend…a cute little dog! The set does include the die for this little pup!

I will show you how to create the shadowbox window on this card…but do keep in mind that you do need the Shadowbox Window Die Set (5408) in order to create the shadowbox feature.

As I mentioned in the video, if you love this shadowbox design, then you may want to check out this video as well:

To set the scene, we will create a stenciled heart with a beautiful starburst design! We will also add some stitching around the edges of the card…this will frame our images very nicely!

The coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and I will list all of the colors that I used down below in the supplies section. We will also add some little enamel dots for added dimension and interest!

Lawn Fawn Try-Fold Card w/ Stencil Alignment Technique

Hello and Welcome!

In today’s video and card we will be creating a tropical try-fold tunnel card! To create our background we will be using the brand new LF Tropical Leaves Background Stencils. I will show you how to make sure that this stencil is exactly the same on the first and second layer of your card! I’ll show you how to do some simple blending the that will give some amazing results!

We will also add a layer of color to our window openings by reimagining our square dies! And finally, we will add a simple pineapple and flower to complete the card.

This fun tropical card can be used for any occasion or just a note to say “Aloha”. There is plenty of room inside the card to write a nice note or to add another stamped sentiment if you wish!

This card was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #104 – Summertime Fun which is pictured below!
