Art Impressions Lovable Owl Birthday Card

Watch the video tutorial here!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In today’s video and card we will be creating a fun birthday scene using the cutest little owl from the Lovable Animals Set (5219). To create the background we will start by creating a tree for our owl by using a Woodgrain die and some distress inks!

To set the remainder of the scene we will create a circle opening for our owl to peek out of and a colorful birthday border of presents and flowers! And for a sweet sentiment we will use the Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346) which says “It’s your Bird-Day, just wing it”.

The coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens…and I will list all of those colors below.

For a finishing touch we will add a few gems to each of those flowers for extra texture and dimensions! These pretty gems just make this card pop!!!

Art Impressions “Batty” Halloween Spinner Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Todays card and video are inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is called “Going Batty”! I thought it would be fun to create a spinner card using the cute little bat from the Halloween Critters Set (5182) and the pumpkin border from the Pumpkin Flip Set (5352).

I will show you how easy it is to create a super fun interactive spinner card. This just requires a bit of clear thread and our bat will look like it is flying on its own! Just wind it up….and let it fly!!!

I really love to look at my stamp sets in a different way so that I can use them in multiple ways. So for this card we will trim away the little critters from inside the pumpkins and just use the pumpkin border on its own.

To set the scene for our card we will use some Distress Oxide Inks and then some beautiful Mica Spray for added shimmer! We will also add some trees and branches in the background with two different stamp sets from the Bible Journaling Sets – Bible Foliage (5073) and He Leads Me (5169).
