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!!!

Pretty Poinsettia Card – Embossing using your dies!!!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today let’s create a pretty and elegant Christmas card using the brand-new Ai WC Poinsettia Set (5828). We will be using the three sizes of the poinsettia images to create some very dimensional flowers. I also want to show you how you can easily use your dies to emboss your cards. This technique can be used with any of your dies!

Let’s begin by stamping the poinsettias onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and then we can color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Wine Red.

Using our detail scissors we can cut these out and then we can add some dimension using a sculpting mat and tools. Now we can layer these flowers. For the larger flower we will use all three sizes and for the smaller ones we will layer the medium and small flowers.

Let’s add a gold center to each flower using the Hero Arts Pearls in gold!

We can also die cut some greenery and berries using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Merry & Bright set. By adding more of the Hero Arts Pearls in the White we can give these berries a touch of elegance! And to the sprigs we can add the Tim Holtz pretty Rock Candy glitter!

Let’s die cut the snowflake frame from the Ai Snowflake Frame Set (5782). We will layer this frame onto some vellum paper and a pretty snowflake paper from the Ai Christmas S2 Paper Pack (5812). We can also stamp the word “magic” onto to the vellum paper using the Ai Christmas Sentiments Set (5566).

The beautiful “Christmas” die cut sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Vault Series: Christmas 2021. We will die cut this from some pretty gold sparkle cardstock.

I’d like to show you a really fun and easy technique today. This technique will allow you to do some beautiful embossing using your dies! This is a great way to get more use from you dies! I’ll show you exactly how to do this in today’s video! I’ll be using the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting machine, but you should use the instructions for your specific machine.

Let’s do a quick assembly of all of these wonderful elements! You could totally change this card by changing the color of the poinsettias and greenery.

As I mentioned in the video, there is a Christmas Evergreen Bundle Set (c5854) currently available at a discounted price. If you buy all four sets, including the one we are using today, you will receive a 20% discount! This is a great deal, and you will find it listed down below for you as well.

Christmas Kitty Tree Card! (re-imagining our stamps)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s re-imagine our stamps today! We are going to take the Ai Christmas Kitty Flip Card Set (5183) and rather than creating a flip card we are going to create a Kitty Christmas Tree….why not…right?! I love to use my stamps not only in the traditional way, but also in unique and fun ways! It’s a great way to get more value from the stamps and dies that you purchase.

First, let’s stamp and color all of our little kitties. We will need to stamp two sets of the forward-facing kitties and one of the back facing kitties. All of the coloring today will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Deep Red, May Green, Deep Green, Turquoise Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray.

Once the coloring is done, we can start our cutting using a pair of detail scissors. We will keep all 4 kitties for the bottom of the tree and then 3 for the second layer and 2 for the top of the tree. This will take a little bit of time to cut out, but it is well worth the effort!

We will also die cut a small, stitched star out of some glitter paper for the tree topper. To this star we can add some sequins for added interest. For this we will use the Buttons Galore & More “Holly” Sequinz.

To set the scene for our card, we can use the Ai Mini Paper Pack (5835) and the Ai Valentines Paper Pack (5741). We will also add a snowy look by spattering this paper with the Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White. We can also ink the edges with the Tim Holtz Ground Espresso Ink.

Let’s add a few highlights using a white gel pen and add some foam squares for added dimension!

GNOMES – Bridge Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a unique style Bridge Card! We just need to make a few folds and cuts in order to create the base for our card. I will give you all of the measurements and cutting instructions in this video!

Our little gnome stamps and dies will come from the Ai Gnomes Set (5785) which is a brand-new set from the Summer 2023 collection. We can stamp them onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Deep Vermillion, Mustard, Evergreen, Smoky Teal, Lt Gray, Mid Brown. Let’s also die cut these using the coordinating dies.

Next, we can create the Bridge card base and add some decorative patterned papers from the Ai Gnomes Paper Pack (5832). Again, all of the measurements are included in the video!

Now we can die cut a beautiful frame using the brand-new Ai Journal Die Set. This will act as the bridge element for our card. We will add a few layers to this frame. The top layer will be used to create our sky and grass which will be inked up using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Speckled Egg and Peeled Paint. I’ll show you and easy way to mask off each of these areas on your card. We can quickly spatter this panel using some Bleed Proof White Ink.

Let’s assemble the card layers and add the bridge element to the card, being careful to glue the bridge element to only the right and left sides of the frame panel.

The sentiment for the inside of the card is from the same Gnome set and it says, “friends gnome matter what” and the sentiment for the front of the card will come from the brand-new Ai Little Sentiments Set (5797) and will say, “Hi Friend!”. The “Hi Friend” sentiment will be stamped onto a cute banner from that same Ai Journal Die Set.

We will add a few cute white stars to the banner from the Buttons Galore & More Sparkletz Firecracker embellishment set.

Finally, let’s add some highlights using our white gel pen. This will just make everything pop out a bit better!

If you love this little gnome set please feel free to check out my “Spinner Card – There’s GNOME one like you!” video which is linked here:

Art Impressions Halloween – Front and Back Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

https://youtu.be/YgitkMy1_B4

I’ve got some brand-new products to show you today including some new Front and Back images! These new images are just so cute, and we will be using the cute little FB Sitting Boy (5777) and FB Sitting Dog (5780) on today’s Halloween card!

So, let’s getting started by stamping and coloring the boy and dog using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Flesh Colour, Lt Gray, Cool Gray #6, Dark Agate, Orange, Dark Peony, Deep Violet, Mid Brown, Olive Green, Dark Green.

Next, we can die cut these images and glue them back-to-back….and they will line up perfectly!

To set the scene we will be creating a spooky night sky and moon. Let’s grab some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. But first we need to mask off the area for our moon using the Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) Layering Moon Mask. This is a two-part mask which will give us the details on the moon. We will use the TH Distress Oxide Ink in Hickory Smoke.

Next, we can spatter the background with some sparkle and also some white ink!

Let’s also stamp and die cut some leaves, pumpkins and a little bench for our scene using the Ai Halloween Slimline Set (5460), the Ai Peek-a-boo Set (5506) and the WC Sitting Places Set (5055).

Now, we can take the brand-new Ai WC Journal Halloween Die Set to create the spooky fence opening for the card and a raven, bats, and spider web using some black cardstock. This set will give you the rectangle that will cut the exact size of the opening needed to perfectly fit your spooky fence. I will give you some more detailed instructions in the video for aligning and assembling this frame very easily!

Next, we can die cut some Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders out of that same black cardstock. At this time, we can also stamp the sentiment which simply says, “Happy Halloween”.

We can do our card assembly…making sure to line up the boy and dog so that they show through to the inside of the card. Let’s add our pumpkins, leaves, raven and spider web to our scene! And keep in mind that when you die cut the little pup there are slits under his paws so that he can hold a variety of objects…we will place our jack-o-lantern in his paws!

Finally let’s take a white gel pen and add a few highlights here and there!!! So don’t be FRIGHTENED to give this card a try!!!

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!

Shaker Card w/ Cozy Cat Cubbies!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a super fun shaker card to show you today! We will be using the adorable Ai Cozy Cat Cubbies Set (5098). This set has a fun cat tree/condo scratching post and several little cats, a ball of yarn, and several coordinating sentiments!

To get started let’s grab some pretty blue patterned paper and die cut the front panel for the shaker card. We will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) and Ai Oval Double Stitched Dies (5065). This will give us a pretty stitched border around the rectangle and the oval.

Next we can stamp and color all of the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Rose, Haze Blue, Smoky Olive, Plum Gray, Mustard, Lt Brown, Beige, Sand, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown, Cool Gray 6, Mid Brown, Smoky Teal. (Note: Stamp plenty of balls of yarn and color them in a variety of colors!)

Since this set does include all of the coordinating dies so we can go ahead and die cut everything!

Let’s assemble the shaker element for the card and add some chunky glitter and a bunch of the little balls of yarn! I’ll give you some tips and tricks for assembling the shaker element of the card in today’s video!

Next, we can stamp the sentiment for the card using the same set and it says “sending warm fuzzy felines”! We can die cut a small banner for the sentiment using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). Let’s pop this up for a bit of added dimension!

Finally, we can add a few pretty light blue heart gems!

This is just so cute and fun when you shake those little balls of yarn and that pretty glitter!

If you really love the “cubbies” images you may want to check out another video that I recently released: Birdhouse Cubbies Slimline Card – Adding Dimension without Pop-Dots, Gems or Bows!!!

Birdhouse Cubbies Slimline Card – Adding Dimension without Pop-Dots, Gems or Bows!!!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge and that was to create a birthday card to celebrate Bonnie’s birthday! Please feel free to join us in this blog challenge by posting your card or project that has a birthday theme….any birthday theme will do! I’m sure Bonnie would love to see what you create to celebrate her special day!

Today we will be creating a fun slimline card using the Ai Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346). This adorable set includes a beautiful birdhouse, birds, flowers, a vine and several fun sentiments! An added bonus is that this set does include the dies! You will love how the birdhouse die cuts out the window openings and the doors on the birdhouse which make this image very interactive!

For this card I decided to add an additional challenge for myself which was to create a one layer card that would have lots and lots of texture, dimension and interest without adding any ribbons, bows, gems or pop-dots! I will give you some tips and tricks for doing this in today’s video.

Let’s get started by stamping and coloring all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Orange, Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Mid Green, Dark Green, Aquamarine Blue, Smoky Teal, Beige, Gray Brown, Mid Brown, Lt Gray. Once the coloring is complete we can die cut all of the images.

Next let’s create a frame for the decorated card panel to sit inside by using the Ai Slimline Dies Set (5463). To set the scene for this card panel we will add some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Speckled Egg and then we will spatter the panel with the same ink and also some teal colored metallic watercolor paint!

Going back to the same stamp set we will stamp our cute sentiment on the front of the card and this says “A little birdie told me it was your birthday”. This set has several cute coordinating sentiments!

Let’s cut off the post on the birdhouse so that it looks like it is hanging from a tree branch. We will use a black permanent marker to create the ribbon for the birdhouse and then draw on a cute little bow. Now we can add all of our little birds, flowers and vines….again gluing everything flat….but you could certainly pop some items up if you wish!

So hopefully you can see how easy it is to add lots of interest and dimension to your cards by using a variety of fun and creative techniques!

Please join me in wishing Bonnie a blessed and beautiful birthday!!!
