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:

Art Impressions Windows to the World – Bridge Card!

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:
