Lawn Fawn Shutter Card – Life is Good

Hello and Welcome!

In todays card and video we will be creating this amazingly fun Shutter Card!!! I have had this die set in my stash for a little while now and I finally got a chance to pull it out and use it to create this special card! Literally all of the hard work has been done for you with the way the dies are created. The set includes the die that cuts the card base and the shutter card mechanism dies, as well as the belly band dies…love that!!!

We will keep the front of the card fairly simple with our lovely lighthouse….but when you open the card you will get this explosion of color in our tropical scene! And when the shutter opens up you will see this beautiful tropical island!

I’ll show you much of the coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and also some ink blending to create the woodgrain texture as well as the sky and ocean.

This card was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #101 – travel destination/favorite place – which is linked to below.

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will be creating a super fun masculine card using the brand new Art Impressions Sit Back Laugh Lines (5421) Set! This set has so many great sentiments which will help you create the perfect masculine card for any occasion!

I really pictured this guy sitting in his basement “man cave” enjoying his favorite television show with his little feline friend looking on!!! And…the chair had to be colored in the vintage 1970’s olive greens!

I’ll show you how to simply create a staircase by using some grid sheets or graph paper. We will add the cute little cat by using the Art Impressions Cats Mini Dies (5333). And we will add some fun elements to the walls by using the Art Impressions MB Wall Accessories (5323). I always love to look through all of my images for some other elements to add to my scene and these wall accessories were perfect!

All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens which are listed below and on the video as well.

Art Impressions Birthday Gull-Friends Card!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In this weeks video and card I wanted to show you what I created with the brand new Gull-Friend Set (5399)! This is the second brand new set that is part of the Funny Farm Collection! Last week I created a card and video using the new Sheep Set (5398) which is  the “Dancing in the Rain Card”, linked here if you missed it!

This Gull-Friend Set is so adorable and includes pelicans as well as seagulls and many fun and funny sentiments! I thought it would be fun to create a beach scene with the cluster of seagulls and layer up the card with some stenciling and a woodgrain panel. I will also show you how to create this realistic ocean effect using a layering stamp set and three different colors of ink!
