Art Impressions Friends Forever – Easel Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using another brand new stamp set from the Ai Spring 2022 Collection! This set is from the Girlfriends Collection and is called the Ai Friends Forever Set (5516). This wonderful stamp of these lovely ladies enjoying a girls day out includes many sweet friendship sentiments which all work so well with this particular stamp but would also be great with so many other sets!

This super fun easel card design is a favorite because it becomes a little keepsake that can be kept on your desk or tabletop. This design is very simple to create and I will show you how to create this easel card with a bit of a twist.

We will add some sparkly clouds with a pretty glitter paper, a sun, and a cute grassy border!

The coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Lt Carmine, Flesh Color, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Orange, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Mid Green, Lt Violet, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown, Mid Gray, Beige, Brown

Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze w/ Distress Crayons

Hello and Welcome!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating two mixed media tags using the Tim Holtz Embossing Glazes, Distress Crayons, Collage Papers and a bit of Texture Paste!!! Let’s start by adding the beautiful TH Botanical Collage Paper. What is really wonderful about the products that we are using today is that the beautiful pattern on the collage paper will still show through all of the layers of color that we will be adding!

Now we can add some color to our background using the TH Distress Crayons in a variety of colors. To spread these colors onto the tag, we will use a baby wipe. This will allow us to moisten our finger, which will in turn, allow us to easily blend out our crayons.

Next we will add some of the TH Distress Glazes by adding some clear embossing ink using the Ranger Emboss It Dabber. This will allow us to be very specific about where we are adding our ink and glazes. Once the ink has been applied we can sprinkle on the Embossing Glaze and tap off the excess. You will want to do one color at a time so that you don’t contaminate the embossing powder with one another. The glaze again will allow the pretty pattern of the collage paper to show through since the powders are very translucent, yet super shiny!

Let’s also add some TH Texture Paste using the Stampers Anonymous Mini Stencils (Set 35)! This will add lots of texture and dimension.

Now we can select some butterflies from the TH Transparency Wings Collections and we can shape these a bit by carefully folding down the centers. Then we will add some pretty gems to the center of each of the butterflies.

More texture and interest will be added by using the TH 3-D Texture Fades Embossing Folder (Intertwine) and adding some paper pieces to the bottom of the tags.

Let’s take a few fun sentiments from the TH Label Stickers (Thoughts) and cut them up to give the tags a more whimsical look!

Finally, we can add some beautiful TH Velvet Trims for a finishing touch!

As I mentioned in this video, I had previously done a video using the TH Embossing Glazes and the TH Sizzix Thinlits Perspective Butterfly Die and if you are interested you can watch the video tutorial here – “Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze – Perspective Butterfly Cards”

Mixed Media Tag Card – Sassy Lady!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I can’t wait to show you one of my absolute favorite stamp sets from the Art Impressions Spring 2022 Collection! This lovely lady is from the brand new Ai Sassy Laugh Lines Set (5517) which is part of the always popular Girlfriend Collection! This set contains the funniest sentiments that a sassy lady would say … and there are tons of them!

As soon as I saw this image I thought she was just screaming out to be on a mixed media project! I thought it would be so much fun to put her on a tag card….and I will show you how to easily create this card using your Ai Tag Stitched Die Set (5132). She would also be great in a journal, scrapbook page, or altered book project.

I will show you how to create a fun leopard print background using a stencil, some Distress Oxide Inks, a Sponge Dauber and a Detail Blending Brush!

We will be using a ton of different products today including some Mica Spray, Antique Crystal Gems, Heirloom Roses, Gilding Polish, Gold Thread, Velvet Ribbon, Metallic Cardstock and so much more! All of these products will add lots and lots of texture, dimension and interest to our tag. I will link a few videos that I have previously done using the Metallic Gilding Polishes if you are interested.

To color the image we will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Color, Lt Pink, Lt Brown, Lt Gray, and Black.

This tag card is just perfect for Ai’s current blog challenge which is called “Tickle Our Funny Bone”. Please feel free to join in our current challenge… we would love to see your funny and silly cards that are sure to make us smile!

Art Impressions Blooming Window Shadowbox Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today I’m really happy to be showing you a brand new release from the Ai Spring 2022 Collection! This beautiful new Ai Blooming Window Set (5450) includes a separate die which will cut out the little potted plant. This little planter can be popped up inside the shadowbox window! However, we will be using it in a slightly different way today by stamping it twice and adding those planters to the bottom of our card! The sentiment that goes all around the image says ” May the coming year be blooming with happiness and many moments to remember”….so pretty!

We will die cut a rectangle using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Die Set (5063) from some pretty plaid paper. Now using a standard A2 size top folding card we can cut out the opening for the shadowbox window. Next, 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.

The best part about this shadowbox feature is that it folds flat when the card is closed for easy mailing!

We will do all of our coloring today using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers as follows: Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Spiced Marmalade.

Now we can die cut the sentiment that is included in the Shadowbox Window Set which says “Hello”. We will die cut this three times and stack these up to create a thick embellishment which we will then add some clear glitter pen. This will give our sentiments some dimension and sparkle!

Next let’s add a few enamel dots in a pretty coral color!
