Art Impressions Birthday Gull-Friends Card!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In this weeks video and card I wanted to show you what I created with the brand new Gull-Friend Set (5399)! This is the second brand new set that is part of the Funny Farm Collection! Last week I created a card and video using the new Sheep Set (5398) which is  the “Dancing in the Rain Card”, linked here if you missed it!

This Gull-Friend Set is so adorable and includes pelicans as well as seagulls and many fun and funny sentiments! I thought it would be fun to create a beach scene with the cluster of seagulls and layer up the card with some stenciling and a woodgrain panel. I will also show you how to create this realistic ocean effect using a layering stamp set and three different colors of ink!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

I’m so excited to be sharing with you today one of the brand new stamps sets from the Hats Off Series from Art Impressions! We will be creating a fun backyard BBQ scene using the brand new Mr. Hat Set (5406)!

I absolutely love this guy and all of the fun hats that come with this set which include a chef’s hat, trapper’s hat, and a hunting hat! It also comes with some great sentiments and additional items that coordinate perfectly with this set. If you are struggling with ideas for masculine cards..like I do…then this is the perfect set to add to your collection!

To set the scene for our backyard barbecue we will use the Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) to add some feathered friends. Then we will create a beautiful night sky with some twinkling lights using the Happy Trails Set (5187), a lovely railing around the patio with the WC Arbor Set (5363), and a pretty patio wall using a fun brick stencil!

There are also two more Hats Off Sets available as well, which include Miss Hat (5404) and Mrs. Hat (5405) and I will be doing a video on each of these in the upcoming weeks!!!

Art Impressions Windows to the World – Bridge Card!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

For todays video and card, I am so excited to be sharing a brand new Art Impressions product with you today! We will be creating a Windows to the World Card which is a wonderful shadowbox on the inside of our card!!! I will be giving you a few tips on how to easily and quickly create this shadowbox design!

We will be using the brand new Bridge Window Accessory Set (5412) to create our little scene. However, there are several new designs available. They include the Deer Window (5411), Mailbox Window (5410) and Boat Window (5409) Accessory Sets. These are all so beautiful and each one comes with the coordinating die for the pop-up element on your shadowbox as well as a sentiment around each of the images! Please keep in mind that you will need the Shadowbox Window Set (5408) in order to create any of these shadowbox cards!

I decided to go with a simple yet elegant black, gray and white color scheme but you can certainly go as colorful as you wish. That is the fun of these little scenes….they are fun on their own or as part of this shadowbox design.

Art Impressions Easter Bunny Cards w/ Acrylic Block Stamping

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In today’s card and video we will be using the adorable little Easter Bunnies Stamp Set (5274)!

We will be doing some easy and fun acrylic block stamping. If you haven’t tried this yet you will definitely want to give it a try. To apply the ink to our acrylic blocks we will be using the water based dual tip markers from Tombow. You will see that just by using different size acrylic blocks or different shapes you will get a fun variety of looks! I will give you fair warning…this is a very addicting technique!!!

I have intentionally not colored in the images to show you how you can quickly create several cards with this technique! And if you don’t love coloring then you will love the simplicity of the black stamping on white cardstock!
