Butterfly Clasp w/ Center Gatefold Design!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Easter card using the beautiful Ai Butterfly Clasp Die Set (5590). This clasp was designed to work with the Ai Journal Series. It is perfectly sized to provide the ideal closure for your Ai journals. However, we are going to use it in a fun and different way today!

We will start with the card base using some white 100lb cardstock and for patterned paper we will be using some pretty lavender stripes for the card base, and we will be using the lavender florals for the gatefold portion of this card.

I will give you all of the measurements for the layers and gatefold in today’s video. Also, for the front flaps of the gatefold we will be using the Ai Journal Cover & Bookmark Dies (5723) to create the pretty scalloped edge.

Now for the inside of the gatefold we will use the Ai Nested Heart Dies (5721) and then we will add the “Easter Blessings” sentiment to a fun little banner using the Ai Journal Template Dies (5543). This set has several fun dies for all of your card making needs!

Finally, to complete the elegant look of this card let’s add a few sparkly lavender gems!

This card would be wonderful for a wedding, thank you and sympathy card as well!

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!

How to make a cascading card – using the Front and Back Snowman!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a super fun Cascading Card today! Today’s video will contain all of the measurements for cutting and scoring your cardstock to create this interactive card! Although this design looks quite complicated, I have filmed the video so that you can follow along and pause the video as needed in order to complete each section of the card very easily.

For our focal image we will be using the brand-new Ai FB Snowman (5779). This set will contain the front and back of the cutest little snowman as well as the coordinating dies. These front and back images are perfect for your spinner, acetate and window cards.

We can stamp and die cut our snowman. All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Sugared Almond Pink, Turquoise Mint, Blue Green, Bright Yellow, Haze Blue, Warm Gray 4.

Next, let’s die cut several pretty snowflakes with some sparkle paper using the Ai Lg Snowflake Dies (5353). We need to cut two of each so that we can glue them back-to-back. Let’s also add some teal opalescent sequins to the center of each of these snowflakes.

For our sentiments we will be using the Ai Nested Heart Dies (5721) and the Ai Chubby Snowman Set (5351) and Ai Christmas Sentiments Set (5566). The scallop heart will be in the same sparkle cardstock and then for the middle heart we will be using the pretty heart paper from the Ai Valentine Paper Pack (5741). The smallest hearts will contain our sentiments and one will say “Snow place like home for the holidays!” and the other will say “Let it snow”.

Again, for the assembly and all of the instructions please click on the video above. I hope you give this fun interactive design a try!
