Tim Holtz Retro Oven Mixed Media Clipboard

In todays video we will be creating a festive holiday mixed media mini clipboard! We will be using the fun Tim Holtz Sizzix Retro Oven die set for our focal point and to create a fun shaker element for our clipboard. We will be using several other items from the Tim Holtz Collection including snowflakes, silverware, mirrored hearts, confections, quote chips, collage paper and many, many other wonderful items!!!

We will add lots of texture and dimension using some texture paste with stenciling, mica spray, garland glitter and again….so much more!

Then we will add some beautiful greenery with a snowy texture to add even more visual interest. I really love when you add lots of fun and interesting items to your mixed media projects for the recipient to discover!

This video is just a little bit longer but I really wanted to include all of the information that I could so that you could easily create one of your own if you wish!

This would make a great gift for a friend or relative….especially one that enjoys baking. You could print out your favorite cookie recipe and attach it to the clipboard for added interest and to personalize this special project!

Also…..keep an eye out….I’ll be putting out another mixed media mini clipboard video in the very near future!!!

Spellbinders Autumn Leaf Border w/ Glimmer Hot Foiling

Hello and Welcome!

Today we are going to have some fun with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System! We will be creating a gatefold birthday card with a pretty velvet belly band. And to add some additional interest, we will add a Tim Holtz metal “word band”.

I’ll show you how we will use the Metallic Gilding Polish to add color to the metal “word band”. Then we will highlight the lettering by using a Distress Crayon!

We will be using the Spellbinders Autumn Leaf Border Glimmer Plate! I’ll show you how quick and easy it is to apply this beautiful foiling to your projects! We will also use the Spellbinders Cannetille Rectangle Die to give this card a unique border and angled edge….which is so elegant!

After we have done the foiling, we will then apply some subtle color to the leaves using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in a variety of Fall colors. These work great on colored cardstock!

I know that a lot of us have a hard time creating masculine cards and sympathy cards…and this style would be great for either of those occasions!

Art Impressions Thankful Slimline Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

This card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is called “I’m thankful for…”! Please join us in this fun challenge or check out the wonderful cards that your crafty peers have created!

So I dug through my stash and found the perfect leaf images from the Ai Halloween Slimline Set (5460) which is part of Ai’s new Slimline Collection! This set has the individual leaves as well as a beautiful leaf border! This set comes with the stamps and coordinating dies…love that!!!

We will be doing some quick and easy inking to color in all of these leaves! For this, we will use some mini dye ink pads in many pretty fall colors.

Then I decided to make the “Thankful” sentiment the star of the show for our slimline card! The Ai Block Letters Die Set (5072) was the perfect alphabet set for this sentiment. These letters are nice and large and measure approximately 1 1/2″ tall…so they will definitely make a statement!

We will use some beautiful copper colored glitter paper to die cut the letters. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks for perfectly lining up your letters!

We will also finish off this card by completing the inside of the card with a beautiful sentiment and some more leaves! We will do some simple masking to create a custom sentiment!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fun and crafty day!!!

Art Impressions/Simon Says Stamp Exclusive – Christmas Train Pop-up Card

Hello!!!

Today I will be showing you the brand new exclusive stamp set from Art Impressions which was created in conjunction with Simon Says Stamp!!! It is called the Christmas Train Set (SSE21B) and it comes with the coordinating dies. This little set has an adorable little train that you can fill with all of these cute little elves, presents, candy canes…and there is even a Santa and a sign to lead you to the North Pole and Santa’s Workshop!

This set is being offered for a limited time only….so if you really love it be sure to order it right away!!!

To set the scene for our little train we will create a fun pop-up element inside the card so that our train will actually look like it is riding on the tracks! I will show you how to easily create this pop-up mechanism and how to create the adorable little train tracks. I’ll also show you how to cut your cardstock to create a snowy border for the inside of your card so that it fits around your pop-up mechanism. It sounds complicated….but it is super easy!

We will also create a beautiful snowy sky using some Distress Oxide Ink and we will spatter it for a snowy effect!

All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and I will show you how I colored the train in order to get the most dimension.

We will keep the front of the card pretty simple because the inside of the card is the “show stopper”!

Tim Holtz 3D Oak Leaf Card w/ Distress Sparkle Glitter

Hello!

In todays card and video we will be using the beautiful Tim Holtz 3D Impresslits Oak Leaf Die Set! This product not only die cuts the leaves but also embosses them at the same time…which I just think is amazing!

We will also be using the Tim Holtz Kraft-Stock in the Warm and Cool colors. These papers have a beautiful color on one side and a kraft color on the back side. What I love about these papers is that we can sand off some of the color on one side in order to reveal the kraft color underneath. This will create some fun texture to the leaves!

For a bit of sparkle, we will be using the new Tim Holtz Sparkle Set which includes both the Tinsel Glitter and the Garland Glitter. These glitters are so gorgeous and I will give you a closer look at these in the video.

To set the scene for our leaves we will spatter the background using some metallic watercolors. This will add a beautiful sparkle to our background!

We will then add a dimensional sentiment using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Shadow Script #2 and then for an additional sentiment we will use the Tim Holtz Metallic Quotation Stickers.

Art Impressions Matchbook Nativity w/ Envelope

Hello Ai Fans!!!

It’s going to be a great day! I have another new matchbook for you today and it is the MB Nativity Set (5443)! This is absolutely my favorite set so far….although I do love them all!

If you haven’t seen the matchbooks in action yet you should know that they have little scenes that are tucked inside a matchbook 3D pop-up. This set includes the cutest little critters for our manger scene and two sentiments which include “O Holy Night” and “Joy to the World”.

Please note that in order to create any of the matchbooks you will need the MB Template Die Set (5317) and to create the coordinating envelope you will need the MB Envelope Die Set. Once you have these two sets you will be able to create any of the matchbooks in the series.

We will be coloring in all of our images with the Tombow Dual Tip Markers and I will list all of the colors that I used down below. We will also be using some double sided patterned paper to create the matchbook and envelope. This is a great time to look through your stash of double sided papers for some great designs.

If you want to check our some other matchbook projects that I have created please click on one of the links below…and….keep and eye out….I have another matchbook coming soon!!!

Lawn Fawn Triple Spinner “Big Acorn” Slimline Card

Hello!!!

Today we will be creating a triple spinner card!!! I have created many spinner cards in the past but I have never made a card with three spinners. I’ll show you how easy it is to create the spinner mechanism. We will be using the “Big Acorn” from the Lawn Fawn collection as our spinner and it was perfect for this concept!

We will also create a beautiful background of Fall leaves by using the Lawn Fawn Falling Leaves Stencils. This is a two part stencil and I will give you a few tips and tricks for lining this up on a slimline card. I’ll show you some simple coloring for the acorns and then we will also complete the inside of the card with some special sentiments! Then we will add a few sparkly gems for a finishing touch!

I thought it would be so much fun to have not only the acorns spinning around but to also have a sentiment on each one of them which was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #112 which is to make the sentiment the star of the show!
