Art Impressions Baby Critters Card

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card I am so excited to be showing you the brand new Art Impressions Baby Critters Stamp and Die Set (5400). This little set is just so adorable and includes a baby giraffe, elephant, hippo and lion…and the coordinating dies! It also has the cutest sentiments which coordinate with the images which are pictured below.

I chose the sentiment “I’m wild about you!” which is inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge – Love is in the Air!

Today we will be creating a jungle scene by doing a little ink smooshing to create a beautiful sky!

We will also include the lovely vines from the Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) and add a woodgrain texture to the frame using the Bible Journaling Wood Frames Set (5269)!

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!
