Rustic Cardinal Ornament – using your Art Impressions FREEBIE Stamp!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Maybe you need a few last-minute Christmas ornaments or gifts for your friends and family. I thought this beautiful cardinal would be perfect! And the best part…. this stamp is part of the FREEBIE series from Art Impressions. There are several FREEBIES available … you can select one free stamp with a $30 purchase! I’ll show you all of the FREEBIES in this video. You will definitely have a hard time choosing one… but don’t wait too long if you are interested because these FREEBIES choices are only available for a limited time!

Let’s go ahead and stamp and color the cardinal image using some alcohol markers. I’ll be using the Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I’m using these because this will allow the coloring to be fade-proof and permanent and this is especially important on an ornament that we will want to last a long time!

I will be decorating a round paper mâché ornament that I purchased at my local craft store. We will add a little ink to this using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Ground Espresso. I want this circle to look like a slice of wood….so we will add some woodgrain paper from the Ai Christmas S2 Paper Pack (5812).

We will die cut the woodgrain paper from the largest circle in the Ai Nested Circle Dies (5726) set. Let’s also grab a few more papers from this same paper pack and die cut some pretty hearts using the Ai Nested Heart Dies (5721) set.

Now we can stamp and color a few of the little holly and berries from the Ai Christmas Mice Set (5459) and use the coordinating die to cut these out. We will add a bit of glaze to each of the berries for some added dimension!

Let’s create a sentiment for the back of the ornament by recreating the same stack of woodgrain and hearts and then die cut a smaller heart out of some white cardstock. We can stamp the sentiment with some red ink using the sentiment that says, “Winter Kisses and Christmas Wishes” from the Ai Chubby Snowmen Set (5351) set.

Finally, lets assemble the ornament and add a few matte gold gems to complete the look!

Art Impressions Feline Snuggle Slimline Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Todays card is inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is called “Feline Crazy”. You are welcome to participate in this fun challenge if you wish by creating a card of your own and submitting it to the challenge. Oh and….there are PRIZES involved here….yay!!! We can’t wait to see what you create!

So the idea is to create a project in any cat theme….just keep in mind that you do want the cat to be the focal point of the project.

So for my card and video I have created a fun winter scene with the little snowman from Art Impressions Chubby Snowman Set (5351) and the precious cat from the Art Impressions Feline Set (5369). We will alter the snowman image slightly so that we can place our adorable little cat in his arms for a winter snuggle!

I was thinking that maybe for some of you the thought of filling an entire slimline card might be a little too time consuming or intimidating. So I’ve created todays card to inspire you to look at these a little differently and to show you how you can create a fun card by just leaving some “white space”.

We will do some simple masking to create the sky section on this card! We will also add some paw prints in the snow which will fill in some of the space on the bottom section of the card. We will then add a sentiment, some vellum snowflakes, and some sparkly embellishments to complete our scene!

Art Impressions Chubby Snowman Shaker Card

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In today’s card and video I will be showing you how I made this fun and interactive shaker card using the brand new Chubby Snowmen Set!

This card was inspired by the current Blog Challenge which is to create a card that reflects the “Reason for the Season”. My reason for the season is LOVE…and this little snowman and his little feathered friend just reflect that sentiment so perfectly!

We will also be creating an embossed background using the new Large Snowflake Dies! This is just another fun way to use your dies in a different way!!!

If you want to see another video I did previously where I had “Jesus is the reason for the season” as my sentiment then please click here for my video on the Animal Nativity Card! https://youtu.be/aUqlWNyR5wQ
