Art Impressions Lift the Flaps Slimline Graduation Shaker Card!

Hello and Welcome!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

In todays video we will be creating a fun graduation shaker card with some cute interactive flaps that will reveal our sweet giraffe, owl and elephant images! This set is the Ai Graduation Set (5277) and also includes several coordinating sentiments such as Hey smarty pants, Nothing is beyond your reach, Welcome to the real world, Hats off to you, and many more!

So lets get started by stamping the front panel of the card using ALL of these wonderful sentiments. This is a great way to create a simple and easy background for any card. Now we can blend some ink around the edges of this card panel using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean.

Next we can stamp our graduation critters! We will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens – Sugared Almond Pink, Yellow, Haze Blue, Cornflour Blue, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Brown, Brown, Lt Gray, Gray. We will then use our detail scissors to cut out these images…leaving a little white border all the way around.

Next we can cut the Lift the Flaps openings from our card. Next I will show you how we can easily turn this into a fun shaker card using some clear acetate and some tiny gold stars!

Let’s add our images into each of the windows and then let’s also add some shiny gold metallic stars to the center of each flap!

Finally, we can stamp, cut and color some little grad caps for the center of each of the stars!

Keep in mind that you could easily use the school colors to personalize it for your special graduate!

Art Impressions – New Release – Beach Truck Slimline Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Today we will be using the brand new Floral Truck Set (5511) and Beach Accessories Set (5509) which are from the fun and fantastic Rides Collection! This collection also includes the Birthday Buggy Set (5455), Spooky Wagon Set (5456), and Christmas Truck Set (5457). And as if that wasn’t enough…there are two additional accessories sets that can be mixed and matched with all of your other sets….and that includes a Travel Accessories Set (5508) and Sports Accessories Set (5510)!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

To set the scene for our beach inspired card, we will be creating a beautiful sky using a combination of Distress Oxide Ink Pads. And to create the water we will use a wonderful color layering stamp set and finally we will add a sandy beach using additional Distress Oxide Inks! Let’s also spatter the sky with a little bit of water to add texture and interest to the sky!

Now we can stamp and color all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens as follows: Blender, Yellow, Orange, Geranium Red, Lt Violet, Cobalt Blue, May Green, Emerald Green, Green, Lt Gray, Dk Gray, Black, Beige, Mustard, Mid Brown.

Let’s also stamp a few palm trees from the Happy Trails Set (5187), a pretty sun from the Beach Babes Set (SC0653), and a few birds in the sky from the Gull-Friends Set (5399)! All of these elements will help to bring the eye up to the top of our card and will finish off this fun scene!

Going back to the Beach Babes Set we can add a cute little sentiment and die cut this from the Flag Double Stitched Dies (5133).

We will attach all of our images to the front panel of our Slimline Card! This finished card will measure 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

As I mentioned in the video, I have previously done a Valentine Card using the Spooky Wagon Set….don’t worry its not spooky at all….I promise you that it is a pretty Valentine card! I created this card to show how flexible these images are and how you can totally change the look with just a few simple changes! Click here to watch!

Art Impressions/SSS Exclusive Stamp Set – Home & Heart

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’m so excited to be showing you a brand new stamp set from Art Impressions in conjunction with Simon Says Stamp! This EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION stamp set is called “Home & Heart” and includes many adorable images, several sweet sentiments and the coordinating dies! This set will only be available for a limited time….so if you love it don’t wait….get yours today!

This set has a bit of a Mother’s Day and Get Well theme to it so I thought it would be fun to create a sweet get well card today! The wonderful sentiments include Some bunny loves you, First a Mom then a forever friend, Home is where your Mom is, You are Beary special, Take good care, Sending big hugs, and the one we will be using today…Feel better soon!

Lets get started by creating a beautiful embossed background. We will keep this mostly white but for a little bit of color we will add some ink around the edges using a blending brush and the Tim Holtz Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and we will spatter the background with this color as well.

Then let’s color in all of our cute little images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens listed as follows: Blender, Lemon Yellow, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Sugared Almond Pink, Pink, Haze Blue, Lt Blue, Lt Gray, Mustard, Oatmeal, Beige, Dk Oatmeal, Mid Brown, Turquoise Green.

Now we will die cut several hexagons from the Ai Hexagon Double Stitched Dies (5135) in a variety of sizes using some pretty pastel patterned papers! Let’s also add some cute little bees from the Ai Christmas Bee Set (5042). Although this is a Christmas stamp set, there are several images that can be used all throughout the year! It’s always fun to find ways to use all of your stamps in many different ways!!!

By adding the bees and a few pretty gems we can add lots of additional texture, sparkle, and interest to our sweet card!
