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!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

I’m so excited to be sharing with you today one of the brand new stamps sets from the Hats Off Series from Art Impressions! We will be creating a fun backyard BBQ scene using the brand new Mr. Hat Set (5406)!

It also comes with some great sentiments and additional items that coordinate perfectly with this set. If you are struggling with ideas for masculine cards..like I do…then this is the perfect set to add to your collection!

Then we will create a beautiful night sky with some twinkling lights using the Happy Trails Set (5187), a lovely railing around the patio with the WC Arbor Set (5363), and a pretty patio wall using a fun brick stencil!

There are also two more Hats Off Sets available as well, which include Miss Hat (5404) and Mrs. Hat (5405) and I will be doing a video on each of these in the upcoming weeks!!!
