Art Impressions Thankful Slimline Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

This card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is called “I’m thankful for…”! Please join us in this fun challenge or check out the wonderful cards that your crafty peers have created!

So I dug through my stash and found the perfect leaf images from the Ai Halloween Slimline Set (5460) which is part of Ai’s new Slimline Collection! This set has the individual leaves as well as a beautiful leaf border! This set comes with the stamps and coordinating dies…love that!!!

We will be doing some quick and easy inking to color in all of these leaves! For this, we will use some mini dye ink pads in many pretty fall colors.

Then I decided to make the “Thankful” sentiment the star of the show for our slimline card! The Ai Block Letters Die Set (5072) was the perfect alphabet set for this sentiment. These letters are nice and large and measure approximately 1 1/2″ tall…so they will definitely make a statement!

We will use some beautiful copper colored glitter paper to die cut the letters. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks for perfectly lining up your letters!

We will also finish off this card by completing the inside of the card with a beautiful sentiment and some more leaves! We will do some simple masking to create a custom sentiment!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fun and crafty day!!!

Lawn Fawn Triple Spinner “Big Acorn” Slimline Card

Hello!!!

Today we will be creating a triple spinner card!!! I have created many spinner cards in the past but I have never made a card with three spinners. I’ll show you how easy it is to create the spinner mechanism. We will be using the “Big Acorn” from the Lawn Fawn collection as our spinner and it was perfect for this concept!

We will also create a beautiful background of Fall leaves by using the Lawn Fawn Falling Leaves Stencils. This is a two part stencil and I will give you a few tips and tricks for lining this up on a slimline card. I’ll show you some simple coloring for the acorns and then we will also complete the inside of the card with some special sentiments! Then we will add a few sparkly gems for a finishing touch!

I thought it would be so much fun to have not only the acorns spinning around but to also have a sentiment on each one of them which was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #112 which is to make the sentiment the star of the show!

Art Impressions Birthday Buggy Slimline Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Welcome to another brand new image in the Art Impressions collection! This Birthday Buggy Set (5455), which we will be using in todays video, is part of the new “Ride” series of images. This series is meant to be interactive…so that all of the images can be mixed and matched to create an unlimited number of designs!

This set includes the car/buggy, presents, balloons, candy, streamers, party hat, and a cute Happy Birthday sentiment! The set also includes the coordinating dies and even includes a little banner die which is designed to perfectly fit the sentiment!

The other sets in this series include the Christmas Truck Set (5457) and the Spooky Wagon Set (5456)! These also come with all of the coordinating images and dies to create a wonderful card.

To set the scene for our little buggy we will create a beautiful sunny sky using a stencil and some Distress Oxide Inks. I will also show you how to give your stencil a bit of added dimension by using a baby wipe!

We will also add some sparkle to the sky using a Sheer Shimmer Spritz and then we will add some little hearts to complete the scene.

Art Impressions Mini Slimline Perfect Partners w/ Metallic Gilding/Opal Polish

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will use the Flamingo Twist Ties Set (4984) in a new way to create a fun mini slimline card!!! So rather than create a twist card I thought that we would create an anniversary card with a beautiful tropical background.

To create this textured background we will be using the Sizzix 3D Textured Impressions Tropical Leaves embossing folder. And to give this background a little bit of shimmer and interest we will use the beautiful metallic gilding/opal polish from Creative Expressions. I will show you my Creative Expressions Gilding/Opal Polish sample booklet in this video and if you would like to learn a lot more about this product you can click here Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades Cards with Metallic Gilding Polish

Finally, we will add some floral sequins, pearlescent vellum, and Nuvo Dream Drops to finish the look!
