Cheers My Deers – Center Step Card

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s make a super fun and special card today! This card is called a Center Step Card and although it looks a bit complicated it is really quite simple! In the video today, I will give you all of the dimensions and cutting/scoring measurements to create this fun fold card.

For the focal image, we will be using an image from the Ai Cheers My Deers Set (5565) of two of the cutest little ladies, all decked out in their holiday best. The antlers are the perfect finishing touch for their outfits!

For our coloring today we will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Flesh Colour, Mustard, Beige, Ever Green, Moss Green, Deep Red, Mid Brown, Lt Gray.

The card base will be created using some kraft cardstock and for some festive holiday layers we will be using the Letters to Santa Collection from Carta Bella. Including some double-sided 12″x12″ Solids, a wonderful 6″x6″ Paper Pad and some pretty Enamel Dots. I have even included all of the measurements that you will need for all of these layering papers!

Let’s wrap some white cording around the top of the center portion of our card and tie a pretty bow!

I really hope this card inspires you to give this card design a try!

Front Porch Party Pop-up Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a fun pop-up card using a stamp and die set from the Ai Front Porch Collection. Today we will be using the Ai Front Porch Party Set (5491)…but keep in mind that you will need the Ai Front Porch Set (5512) in order to create the basic front porch design. This collection is just so much fun! The latest additions to this collection included a Harvest Set (5492), Christmas Set (5489), and a Halloween Set (5487).

Here are a few videos that you may be interested in that highlight this Front Porch series:

Front Porch Harvest Door Card https://youtu.be/5OUBDQVa_kY

Farmhouse Front Porch Door Card https://youtu.be/Nw1PQImFK7I

Halloween Goodie Bag/Party Favor https://youtu.be/NXDrc5YHKVc

For today’s card I will be showing you how to create a pop-up element for the inside of your card. Super easy to do and NO dies needed for this pop-up design…just a pair of scissors!

To get started we will be stenciling a festive confetti background using a set of stencils from the Lawn Fawn Collection and for our pastel palette we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in a variety of colors.

Next we can stamp and color all of these party elements for our front porch including presents, balloons, a birthday banner and so much more! I decided to color my front door in a pretty pink…it just made me happy…but you can have fun coloring it in your favorite color!!! All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Yellow, Lt Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Lt Gray, and Platinum Brown.

We will add a sentiment for the front of the card using the Ai Baby Critters Set (5400) and the Ai Oval Double Stitched Dies (5065). We will ink the stamp use our sponge daubers so that we can add one color at a time to give our sentiment a rainbow of color. This is a great way to change up the look of your sentiment stamps.

Finally, I will show you how to create this pop-up element and how to assemble this simple pop-up card!

***New Release*** Art Impressions Matchbook Nursery/Baby!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using another brand new add-on set to the Ai Matchbook Series! This one is the Ai MB Nursery/Baby Set (5495) and it is just so adorable. This set includes all of the images you will need for your little nursery scene including a crib, rocker, baby toys, a chest and many cute sentiments! This set also includes the coordinating dies!

Let’s start by stamping and coloring all of our little images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Shadow Pink, Aquamarine Blue, Orange, Beige, Lt Gray, Mid Gray.

Next, we can create the base of our matchbook using the Ai MB Template Set (5317) and we can use the Ai MB Envelope Set (5318) to create the coordinating envelope. For paper will use a pretty double-sided pattern paper with dots and stripes in a pretty yellow/white color combination.

Now we can die cut two windows for our nursery using the dies from that same Ai MB Template Set (5317). We can also die cut all of our images. Once these are cut, we can fold on all of the score lines. I will give you a few tips and tricks for easy assembling our matchbook scene!

Let’s also add a few cute little buttons to the front of the matchbook and the envelope using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543)!

Art Impressions/Simon Says Stamp Exclusive – Christmas Train Pop-up Card

Hello!!!

Today I will be showing you the brand new exclusive stamp set from Art Impressions which was created in conjunction with Simon Says Stamp!!! It is called the Christmas Train Set (SSE21B) and it comes with the coordinating dies. This little set has an adorable little train that you can fill with all of these cute little elves, presents, candy canes…and there is even a Santa and a sign to lead you to the North Pole and Santa’s Workshop!

This set is being offered for a limited time only….so if you really love it be sure to order it right away!!!

To set the scene for our little train we will create a fun pop-up element inside the card so that our train will actually look like it is riding on the tracks! I will show you how to easily create this pop-up mechanism and how to create the adorable little train tracks. I’ll also show you how to cut your cardstock to create a snowy border for the inside of your card so that it fits around your pop-up mechanism. It sounds complicated….but it is super easy!

We will also create a beautiful snowy sky using some Distress Oxide Ink and we will spatter it for a snowy effect!

All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and I will show you how I colored the train in order to get the most dimension.

We will keep the front of the card pretty simple because the inside of the card is the “show stopper”!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

It’s going to be a great day! I have another new matchbook for you today and it is the MB Nativity Set (5443)! This is absolutely my favorite set so far….although I do love them all!

If you haven’t seen the matchbooks in action yet you should know that they have little scenes that are tucked inside a matchbook 3D pop-up. This set includes the cutest little critters for our manger scene and two sentiments which include “O Holy Night” and “Joy to the World”.

Please note that in order to create any of the matchbooks you will need the MB Template Die Set (5317) and to create the coordinating envelope you will need the MB Envelope Die Set. Once you have these two sets you will be able to create any of the matchbooks in the series.

We will be coloring in all of our images with the Tombow Dual Tip Markers and I will list all of the colors that I used down below. We will also be using some double sided patterned paper to create the matchbook and envelope. This is a great time to look through your stash of double sided papers for some great designs.
