Elegant Party Favor Box w/ Texture Paste and Stenciling!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

We are going to use this fun Ai Mini Journal Box Die Set (5805) today to create and elegant box design. This box could be used for a wedding, shower, anniversary party, or even for Mother’s Day! You could place some sweet treats in the box…as I will do for mine. But you could also put some money, jewelry, or any other small gifts inside. However, keep in mind that this box was designed to hold your Mini Journals. The possibilities are endless!!!

These party favor boxes were inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge – Just for You – which is to create GC holders, pockets, gift bags, or boxes!

Let’s die cut a couple of boxes with some white 100lb cardstock. We can fold on the score lines and tape this together using some 1/8″ double-sided tape.

Now let’s add a beautiful liner to the inside of the boxes using some pretty Hero Art’s Gold Stencil Paste and using the Hero Arts – Leaf & Floral Ornate Stencil. This will add some texture, shimmer, and elegance!

While those liners are drying, we can die cut the Heart Clasp Die which is included in the Ai Slim Journal Template Dies (5806). We will die cut the clasp using some pretty metallic gold paper. We can easily assemble the clasp and we will be gluing it together to give the illusion of a faux clasp. Let’s center the clasp on the front of the box and trim away and excess. But….keep that excess because we are going to add this to the side of the boxes. This just finishes the look perfectly!

Going back the Ai Mini Journal Box Set we will die cut the lattice border 4 times. We will add these to the front and back panels of each of the boxes.

For a few finishing touches, let’s add a pretty white heart on the center of the hearts and then a few gold dust gems for added sparkle!

Please join us in this fun new challenge…we would love to see what you create!

Beautiful Swans Secret Garden Window Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using a brand-new stamp set from Art Impressions! This is called My Favorite Bird Set (5820) and includes the two beautiful swans that we will be using on our card. It also includes a lovely pelican, heron, two different sizes of owls, some tiny ducks, a few cattails and tiny rocks!

Let’s start by stamping the swans using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Tea Rose, Bright Yellow, Scarlet Red, Lt Gray. Now we can cut these out leaving a little white border all the way around.

We will cut two large, stitched panels using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063). Now let’s grab the beautiful Lawn Fawn Secret Garden Window Die Set and die cut the window from the first panel and die cut the arch from some Gina K Masking Magic.

We can mask off the secret window and stamp over top using the Hero Arts Bold Prints Cling Stamp – Bursting w/ Love and emboss this using some beautiful white satin pearl powder.

Next, let’s add some inking using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Speckled Egg. Be sure to wipe off any excess with a clean, dry towel and remove the mask. We can stamp the second large panel as well and also spatter this inside panel.

Let’s add some water for the swans and ink this panel using the Speckled Egg and Peacock Feathers ink!

We can assemble the two panels with the water and swans using some 3D Foam Tape for added dimension.

Going back to the same Secret Garden Die Set we can die cut several flowers from the white cardstock and add these to the frame. For the centers of the flowers, we can add some pretty turquoise sequins!

Next, let’s add the sentiment that says “Better Together” from the Ai Friend Sentiments Set (5734) and emboss it using some detail white embossing powder. Let’s also pop this up with some foam squares and add another flower and leaves to this banner. This little banner is from the Ai Decorative Journal Page 2 (5809) die set.

This elegant card would be wonderful for an anniversary, wedding or Valentine’s Day!!!

Tim Holtz Sparkle and Wine Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s play with the brand-new Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades “Sparkle” Embossing Folder! We are going to “double” emboss this folder on our card today.

We will start by running the embossing folder through the die cutting machine as we would normally do. Next, we will use the Tim Holtz Embossing Pen and Embossing Glazes to add another layer of embossing. All we need to do is apply some embossing ink (from the embossing pen) to the high spots on the cardstock and then apply some embossing glaze in a variety of bright colors. Heat set this and check out the wonderful dimension, color and shine that you get!

Keep in mind that you could totally change the look of this embossing folder. For example, this would be beautiful with gold, silver and copper for a more elegant look! Have some fun with this!

Let’s ink up the card panel using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. Remember to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas because the ink just won’t dry on the embossing glaze.

Now we can stamp and color the wine bottle and wine glass and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Deep Red, Yellow, Mustard, Beige, Mid Brown, Haze Blue. These images are from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous – Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set – Wine Blueprint and Strip sets. Although these images have been around for a bit, they are absolute classics and make a great addition to your crafty stash.

We will add the sentiment using the Tim Holtz idea-ology Theories Quote Chips which will say “love with all your heart”. Just ink the edges a bit to finish off this quote chip.

Next, we can assemble the card panel onto a black card base, and we will also add a few sparkly hearts to each of the wine glasses using the Buttons Galore & More Red Hearts.

This card would be great for New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Wedding, Congratulations, Birthday and so much more!!!

Happy Dance Window Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a fun birthday window card using the Ai Perfect Duet Set (4999). To set the scene for our dancers we will be using the Ai Valentines Journal Paper Pack. We will use the pretty plaid for the front of our card and the happy little hearts paper for the inside of the card. Let’s die cut these panels using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies Set (5063). We can also die cut just a small portion of some of the pinkish/red paper for the floor in our scene.

Next we can stamp and color the couple and the boom box! All of today’s coloring was done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Wine Red, Haze Blue, Aquamarine Blue, Emerald Green, Lt Gray, Gray Brown, Mid Brown, Beige.

Now let’s go to the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and grab the window frame die. We can die cut this frame from the front of the card panel and the plaid paper at the same time. I’ll show you a little trick for getting this to line up perfectly! Remember to die cut an extra window frame for the inside of your card.

Now we can cut a piece of acetate to the size of the card and tape it to the front of the card. Now let’s add the plaid paper over the top of the acetate. Also, add the frame to the front of the card and add the second frame to the inside of the card. This will hide the adhesive nicely!

Next we can add a sentiment for the front of the card which says “Get your happy on!” and a sentiment for the inside which says “You don’t stop dancing when you get old…you get old when you stop dancing!”. These sentiments are from the Ai Be Happy Laugh Lines Set (5279). We will die cut theses two sentiments using the banner die from the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). I’ll show you a fun trick for using this smaller die for your larger sentiment!

Let’s go ahead and do the final assembly and then add a few pretty pink pastel hearts to the front of the card!

See-through Acetate Tent Fold Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a fun See-through Acetate Tent Fold Card! I just couldn’t resist using this adorable Ai Love Thing Set (4752)! This sweet couple is enjoying a delicious box of chocolates and they just look like they are in absolute heaven! Once I had that thought in my head I just felt like they had to be floating in and on some beautiful puffy clouds!

To get started let’s stamp and color our focal image using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Rose, Deep Red, Flesh Colour, Haze Blue, Smoky Teal, Lt Gray, Oatmeal, Beige, Mid Brown, Gray Brown.

Next we can cut out this image using a pair of detail scissors….leaving a small white border all the way around.

Now we can create our puffy clouds using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackable Dies. I’ll show you how to line up the die in order to create the top tab for our card. I’ll also give you a few tips for sandwiching the clear acetate between this cluster of clouds. This acetate will create a nice sturdy yet see-through cover for our card. This creates a really unique and special look on your card!

For some additional clouds we will use the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil and the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad in Stormy Sky. Next, we can add some additional interest by using the Lawn Fawn Falling Hearts Stencils to add some pretty hearts to the sky.

We will be stamping the coordinating sentiment from this same stamp set and this says…”It’s a love thing”. So true!!!

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!
