Tim Holtz Sweet Cookie Basket

Hello and Welcome!!!

In todays video we will be creating a “sweet” little cookie basket using some wonderful cookie dies from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Collections! We will be using the Christmas Cookies Dies Set and the Fresh Baked #1 Dies Set.

As I was putting away my Christmas and Holiday Dies, I noticed that there was a cute little heart cookie die in each of these die sets. That inspired me to create this fun cookie basket….which I think could be used for an Anniversary, Birthday or a Valentine’s card!

The dies will cut out all of the layers needed to create these cookies. I used a variety of colors to create a nice collection of cookies…but in the end I decided to use the pinks and reds to do this particular card. I will keep all of the other cookies for another project! It is really fun to just sit and create a whole bunch of these cookies and then you will have extras if you need some to create a quick card!

We will add some “frosting” and “glaze” to our cookies by using some Nuvo Dream Drops and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze. We can also use the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to add even more sparkle! You could any fun embellishments that you may have such as sprinkles and sequins. Look through your stash and see what you can come up with!!!

To create the basket we will be using the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades – Intertwine – Embossing Folder. This will give us that beautiful basketweave pattern and add lots and lots of dimension.

For the background, we will be using the Tim Holtz Doily Stencil. This will give us a sweet delicate pattern! We will also use the Tim Holtz Crochet Die to create a topper for our basket.

Have fun with these little cookies by changing out your colors and embellishments! I hope this has inspired you to give this a try!

Art Impressions Happy Anniversary Easel Card w/ Brayering Technique

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Hello and Welcome!!!

I have a super special anniversary card to show you today! For our main focal point we will be using the adorable couple from the Ai Love Birds Stamps (AiCS27) Set. I just love this couple sitting on a park bench…it is just the sweetest image!

I will show you how to quickly and easily create a fun heart shaped easel card! This takes a simple anniversary card to a whole new level and will make our card more of a keepsake for displaying on a tabletop!

To set the scene for our couple, we will be brayering a beautiful background using an ombre’ ink pad. I will show you lots of tips and tricks for getting a perfect brayered background. I’ll also show you how to create this rainy look using and image from the Ai Bible Foliage Set 2 (5418). This little dotted image might be something that you might overlook….but you will see how much fun this image can be!

We will pop-up a sentiment on the inside of the card which is also from the Ai Love Birds Set and this will create the easel mechanism for our card.

As a final step, we will add some pretty sparkly gems to the front of the card!

For the coloring today I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens as listed here: Blender, Lt Gray, Gray Brown, Mid Brown, Black, Beige, Flesh Color, Lt Blue, Turquoise Green, Dull Blue, Deep Violet

Art Impressions Wedding/Birthday Cake Cards w/ Embossed Stencil Technique

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In todays video we will be creating two cards! The first card will be a 3-tiered wedding cake with some beautiful flowers and vines! We will be using the brand new Ai Birthday Cake GCH (5407) to create the cake and frosting and we will also be using the Ai Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) to stamp and die cut some flowers and vines to decorate our fancy cake! We will use some beautiful Rose Gold Embossing Powder to make some yummy frosting!

I will also be showing you how to emboss your cardstock by using your stencils. This is really easy to do and is another fun way to use your stencils to add texture and dimension to your cards!

This Birthday Cake GCH set is designed to work with the Envelope GCH Die set to create and little gift card holder pocket/envelope. Just a reminder that these sets will need to be purchased separately and there are several cute die sets that coordinate with this Envelope GCH Set ( Java, Snowman, Black Cat, Pumpkin, Santa)…so be sure to check those out as well!!!

For our second card, we will use the leftover flowers to quickly and easily create a matching Birthday Cake Card with some simples stenciling and a birthday candle!

Art Impressions Mini Slimline Perfect Partners w/ Metallic Gilding/Opal Polish

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will use the Flamingo Twist Ties Set (4984) in a new way to create a fun mini slimline card!!! So rather than create a twist card I thought that we would create an anniversary card with a beautiful tropical background.

To create this textured background we will be using the Sizzix 3D Textured Impressions Tropical Leaves embossing folder. And to give this background a little bit of shimmer and interest we will use the beautiful metallic gilding/opal polish from Creative Expressions. I will show you my Creative Expressions Gilding/Opal Polish sample booklet in this video and if you would like to learn a lot more about this product you can click here Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades Cards with Metallic Gilding Polish

Finally, we will add some floral sequins, pearlescent vellum, and Nuvo Dream Drops to finish the look!

Art Impressions Masculine Scene Card and Gift Card Holder

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!!

In today’s video and card I thought I would create a masculine scene card and matching gift card holder.

Shhhhh…don’t tell my husband that this is his Valentine Card Set! He loves the outdoors and takes long walks everyday….rain, shine or snow. So I thought that it would be fun to create a peaceful winter scene using the beautiful “As the Deer” stamp set (5128) and the sentiment “Life with you is Wonderful” from the “Enjoy the Ride” stamp set (5186)!

This is a very simple scene to create. So if you are little bit intimidated about trying an elaborate watercolor scene card then this might be just the card for you!

To set the scene I have used a wonderful Sizzix 3-D Textured Embossing Folder with Jeweled Snowflakes!

I think this could also be used for a retirement (which I show an example), birthday, anniversary, or even a sympathy card due to its peaceful nature!
