Art Impressions Llama Slider Card w/ Reverse Stamping Technique

Watch video tutorial here!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

I am really excited to show you todays slider card! We will be using the Slider Die (4764) to create the mechanism that will allow these two adorable llamas to have a sweet kiss!!!

In order to have these two images face each other, we will need to stamp the reverse image of our llama. I will show you a really simple way to do this which will give you a perfect reverse image every time!!!

Our images for this card are from the brand new Llama Set (5458), which includes several coordinating images and cute little sentiments that we will use to complete this fun scene!

We will do some ink blending using our Distress Oxide Ink Pads and off camera I did some simple coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens….but I have listed all of the colors that I used down below.

Art Impressions “Java” Valentine Gift Card Holder

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!

In today’s video we will be creating a special Valentine Gift Card Holder using the Java GCH Set (5343)! This set comes with all of the dies needed to create a take-out style coffee cup for the front of your Envelope Gift Card Holder (which does need to be purchased separately). But once you have the Envelope GCH Set you can then add any of the GCH Sets to this little pocket envelope.

We will be repurposing some left over Christmas/Holiday papers! This is a great time to look through your holiday paper stash and use up some of those leftovers. Many of the holiday papers include reds and pinks that are perfect for your Valentine cards. The paper pack that we are using today has some coordinating double sided papers that I thought would be perfect for my gift card holder. I did create this in a more masculine palette but you could certainly change out your pattern papers to get a more feminine look.

The GCH collection also includes the Santa Set (5339), Snowman Set (5340), Birthday Cake Set (5407), and the Black Cat Set (5341). If you really love these little gift card holders you may enjoy watching a few different videos I have done using these products, which are linked below:

Wedding/Birthday Cake Cards

Today’s card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is to create a fun and unique shaped card and I thought this “Java” cup would be perfect! Please join us in this super fun challenge by linking your card creations or just by checking out the cards submitted by your crafty peers!

Art Impressions Window to the World – “Swing” Card!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In todays video I will be showing you an adorable die set from the Windows to the World Collection! This collection is part of a series which will allow you to create a unique and beautiful shadowbox window on the inside of your card. We will be using the Swing Window Set (5452) which was part of the wonderful Fall 2021 release. There is a little girl on a swing and her faithful friend…a cute little dog! The set does include the die for this little pup!

I will show you how to create the shadowbox window on this card…but do keep in mind that you do need the Shadowbox Window Die Set (5408) in order to create the shadowbox feature.

As I mentioned in the video, if you love this shadowbox design, then you may want to check out this video as well:

To set the scene, we will create a stenciled heart with a beautiful starburst design! We will also add some stitching around the edges of the card…this will frame our images very nicely!

The coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and I will list all of the colors that I used down below in the supplies section. We will also add some little enamel dots for added dimension and interest!

Lawn Fawn Penguin Valentine Party – Z Fold Card

Hello and Welcome!!!

In todays video we will be creating a fun and unique Z Fold Card! I wanted to be able to create this card by using the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline Die as the card base so that I could have that beautiful stitched border all the way around the card. By doing this we will end up with a smaller sized card…but don’t worry…I will show you how to quickly and easily create this card and also how to make a pretty vellum envelope that will perfectly fit this smaller size card. This Z Fold design will allow us to create a super fun pop-up style card!!!

To set the scene, we will be using several images from the LF Penguin Party Sets and the LF Scent With Love Sets! We will be coloring in the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens which are listed below.

We will also be using the wonderful LF Lots of Hearts Stencil Set to create a whimsical pink sky!

This card was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #116 – Let’s Celebrate – which is picture below:

Tim Holtz 3D Snowflake Gift Card Holder

Hello and Welcome!

In todays video we will be creating some fun dimensional gift card holders! To do this, we will be using the Tim Holtz Stitched Slots Die, which is really meant to be used on your scrapbook or journaling pages. It is a great way to display a collection of tickets, photos or other ephemera. I must admit that I have had this die in my collection for quite some time and have never used it. So every now and again I like to look through my dies and use a die set that I have never used before. As I was looking at this set I thought it would be perfect for some holiday gift card holders! I will show you how to create a simple pocket for your slot die!

The beautiful snowflake is a Tim Holtz 3D Impresslits Embossing Folder. This folder not only embosses the image but also die cuts it at the same time! We will be adding some beautiful foiling to the snowflakes with just a glue pen and some Deco Foil. This is a great technique for those of you who don’t have a foiling machine and for those who just want to do some foiling in a specific area. No heat is required for this foiling technique!

We will also be doing some fun stenciling using the Tim Holtz Layering Stencils. These stencils will allow us to use two different colors for our stripes and dots. These are lots of fun to use!!!

We will add a handle for our gift card pocket using some pretty tinsel! Let’s add a few sparkly gems to finish off this project!

If you really love these 3D Impresslits then you may want to check out the videos listed and linked below!

Tim Holtz 3D Cathedral Window Ornament

Hello and Welcome!

In todays video we will be creating an elegant 3D Cathedral Window Ornament! We will be using the Tim Holtz Sizzix BIGZ Cathedral Window steel rule die! This elegant window will set the scene for our vintage Christmas ornament. The little scene will include a beautiful fireplace, Christmas tree, stockings, presents, and glittery tinsel garland! All of these elements will come from a collection of Tim Holtz Die Sets which are listed and linked below.

We will add a snowy texture using some texture paste and some icicles to give it an even more wintery look! We will add a lovely wreath, a cute sentiment, velvet ribbon and a jingle bell for added interest and dimension!

This could easily be made into a shaker ornament if you prefer or just simply be attached to a card. Just have fun with this window by adding whatever you like to your little scene!

Elegant Sizzix 3D Poinsettia Card

Hello and Welcome!

In todays video we will create this elegant card with a very dimensional poinsettia! This beautiful flower is from the Sizzix 3D Impresslits Embossing Folder! This embossing folder not only embosses the flower but also die cuts it at the same time! And….the embossing is extremely dimensional and detailed!

We will die cut this poinsettia from a pretty pink Metallic Confections Kraft-Stock from the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection. We will also emboss the card itself using the Spellbinders Detailed “Forevergreen” Embossing Folder. The beautiful pine branches on this folder will perfectly set the scene for this holiday card.

To pull this card together, we will be using the DCWV 6×6 Paper Pack in Frosted Peppermint. This paper pack is filled with lovely papers in soft pinks and reds and also includes some beautiful metallic papers as well.

We will add a large elegant sentiment and some greenery on the front and inside of the card using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Merry and Bright Die Set.

For a finishing touch, we will add some sparkly gems from the Pinkfresh Studios Essentials Jewel Mix!

Art Impressions Snowman Flip-Flop Card w/ Pastels

Hello and Welcome!!!

I’ve got a really fun Flip-Flop winter card to show you in todays video!

We will be using the Snowman Pop-ups Set (5358) a little bit differently today. Rather than making the pop-up for the inside of our card we will use the stamp and the die to create this flip-flop card! I will provide you with step-by-step instructions on cutting this die in order to create the flip-flop mechanism. And….I’ll show you why this particular die makes creating this style of card even easier!!!

The coloring will be done using the beautiful Palette Pastels from the Jane Davenport collection. I’ll show you some easy blending and shadowing techniques.

To create the beautiful snowflakes we will be using the Lg Snowflake Dies (5353) and we will be cutting them out of some beautiful sparkly glitter cardstock!

If you love this little snowman and you want to see how it is used to create the pop-up feature then please click here to watch the Art Impressions Snowman Pop-up Card.

Hello and Welcome!

In today’s video we will be creating an cute little shaker ornament using the Tim Holtz Cozy Winter Die Set! This set includes the adorable bear and a sweet bird, branch, and some little snowflakes.

This set would be perfect for creating a fun winter scene but I thought it would be such fun to turn this into a shaker ornament by cutting out the tummy section and adding some beautiful sequins and gems.

Hello and Welcome!

In todays video we will be using several wonderful products from the Tim Holtz Collection including the Darling Deer and Woodlands Thinlits Die Sets! We will create a dramatic sky for our scene using the brand new Villainous Potion ink pad along with the pretty pink Kitsch Flamingo ink pad. We will be using our sponge daubers to apply the ink in small sections to get this unique looking sky!

For added texture and dimension we will do some spattering with water and paint and by adding some beautiful snowflake sequins!

The special sentiment will come from the Tim Holtz idea-ology “Christmas/Noel” Label Stickers which look a lot like using your Dymo Sticker Maker….only easier! The package contains two sheets of these wonderful sentiments.
