Beach Village Scene Card w/ NEW Art Impressions FREEBIES!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new Ai FREEBIES Village Series Stamps! The little village FREEBIES collection includes several different village houses/shops including a schoolhouse, cafe, hotel, candy shop, bakery and pet shop. Here’s the fun part …there are three add-on sets that will coordinate with these FREEBIE stamps and they include the Village Vehicles (5889), the Village Accessories (5890) and the Village Signage (5891).

One of these FREEBIES will be free with each $30 purchase and the add-on sets can be purchased as a bundle or individually. The bundle set will be at a discounted price. I will list all of these options for you down below!

Let’s start by creating the front panel for our card using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Die Set (5063) using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock.

Next, we can create the background for our scene. We will be using a two-part stamp to create the ocean and it is called the Hero Arts Beach Heroscape. For inks, we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. For added interest, we will use the white bleed proof ink and a small brush to tap some white ink onto the tops of the waves.

Once the water is stamped let’s add a bit of sand using the Oxide Inks in Antique Linen and Tattered Rose. We can also spatter the sand with a little bit of ink.

Next, we can stamp three of the little shops along the top of the sand and stamp a second time onto some Gina K Masking Magic paper. Let’s then mask the houses to that we can stamp a pretty tree in-between each of the shops … this tree image is from the Ai Village Accessories Set (5890). This will make the trees look like they are tucked in behind the houses.

Now we will have to stamp the trees again onto the same masking paper. Now all of our images will be masked so that we can ink blend the sky. For the sky, we will ink blend some more Oxide Ink using the Scattered Straw and Wild Honey.

Let’s remove the masks and color in all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Yellow, Lt Blue, Turquoise Green, Lilac, Lt Violet, Haze Blue, Lt Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Gray.

For some added interest and fun, we can use the Ai Village Signage Set (5891) to stamp the signs on each of the buildings … love this little set so much!!!

Let’s add a beach fence to the corner of the card using the Ai WC Seagull Set (5473) and with this same set let’s add some birds in the sky! We can also add a bit of foliage around the fence using the Ai WC Foliage Set 4 (5126).

Going back to the same rectangle die set let’s die cut the larger panel for the card using some woodgrain cardstock from the Ai Gnome PP 6″x6″ (5832). We will use this same paper to stamp the sentiment from the Ai Gull-friends Set (5399) that will say “Seas the Day”. To die cut the sentiment we will use the Ai Flag Double-Stitched Dies (5133) and then attach it to the front of the card.

Finally, we can assemble the card and for a finishing touch we will add some pretty gold dust gems!

Fun Floral Truck Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s feature card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Birds of a Feather” which is to incorporate a bird or birds on your card or project!

I thought it would be fun to create a scene where the Ai Floral Truck Set (5511) would look like a little pop-up floral shop. So, let’s begin by stamping the images from this set, as well as a few birds from the Ai Birds and Bugs Set (5561), and a pretty topiary from the Ai Front Porch Garden Set (5486). All of the coloring today will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Lilac, Lt Violet, Deep Red Grape, Deep Vermillion, Deep Red, Lt Gray, Gray, Cool Gray 6, Beige, Mid Brown, Haze Blue, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Persian Green, Blue Gray, Dk Agate, Lt Green, Green.

To ground the scene, we will be stamping a brick walk using the Sunny Studio Sprawling Surfaces Stamp Set. This set has three different images including this brick walk as well as wood planks and a stone path!

Once the brick walk is stamped and colored, we can add a pretty sky by ink blending some orange and yellow inks!

Next, we can assemble the card, popping up some of the items for added interest and dimension. Don’t forget to add those adorable little birds and bees! To layer up the card we will use some pretty polka dot paper from the Ai Easter S2 Paper Pack (5892).

We can also add some baker’s twine and tie a bow at the top of the card! And as you probably already know, I have been trying to complete my cards by adding a sentiment and an interesting element to the inside of the card. For this card, I added a sentiment from the Ai Mrs. Set (5405) which says, “Wishing you every Bloomin’ Thing!” and another cute flowerpot as well as a little bee!

Please check out the entire Ai Front Porch Series for lots of little elements that can be incorporated into your scene cards and also the Ai Rides Series which includes this floral truck as well as a Birthday Buggy, Christmas Truck, Spooky Wagon and some sweet add-ons!

Spring Tulips Frame Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

One day recently, I just couldn’t get my creative juices flowing so I sat and colored and cut out several of the Ai Small Easter Tulips (5894). I colored many more than I needed for this card, but it did help to get me out of my slump. Sometimes I find that I just need to do something easy and calming…which for me is coloring and fussy cutting with my detail scissors. Once these tulips were all colored, I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter and set them aside to dry. I came back to these a few days later and they inspired me to make today’s card!

Next, let’s stamp the pup using the Ai FB Sitting Dog (5780) and the little bees from the Ai Birds and Bugs Set (5561) and then we can do some quick coloring.

All of the coloring today was done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Lt Green, Green, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Lilac, Lt Violet, Deep Red Grape, Haze Blue, Lt Pink, Beige, Mid Brown.

To make the images really pop I thought we would create a beautiful frame using the Ai Decorative Journal Page 1 Set (5768). However, this die was a solid die, so we need to cut out the center using the rectangle dies. I will show you exactly how to do this in today’s video. This is a great way to extend the use of your dies in a new and fun way!

For paper today we will be using the brand-new Ai Easter S2 Paper Pack (5892). To die cut these backgrounds we will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) and to cut out the rectangle frame in the center we will be using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724).

Let’s assemble the card and add a few cute little sentiments using the Ai Mini Birthday Sentiment Set (5866). Lately, I have really been trying to do something a bit special on the inside of my cards as well. For this card, I added a cute little envelope using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and that gave me a fun way to add the sentiment, some tulips, and a few bees!

For a finishing touch, we can add a few sparkly embellishments around our little pup!

Gardening Girlfriends Set – ***NEW*** Art Impressions

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun today creating a fun card using the brand-new Ai Girlfriends Gardening Set (5798). This adorable set includes three different images of these wonderful gardening ladies and the perfect coordinating sentiments!

We will begin by stamping this little lady with the gardening pots and we will also stamp and color some strawberries from the Ai Berries Set (5795). Then we will be coloring all of the images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Pale Yellow, Bright Yellow, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Geranium Red, Brown, Mid Brown, Beige, Blue Gray, May Green, Deep Green.

Next, we can create the card base with this fun lattice flap! I will show you exactly how to do this in today’s video! For the flap we will be using the Ai Decorative Journal Page Set 2 (5809). This card will measure 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard A2 size).

Now we can grab some pretty patterned papers from the Ai Gnome Paper Pack (5832) and die cut the front panel with the same Ai Decorative Journal Page Set 2 (5809) we used to create the flap. Using our paper trimmer, we will cut the floral paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Let’s assemble the card and add a fun sentiment from the Ai Little Things Sentiment Set (5797) that says ” Life is short, make it sweet!”. I thought it would be fun to have some extra strawberries falling from the basket as she was walking along. We can pop-up a few of these with some small adhesive foam squares.

This fun flap card is great for a birthday, best wishes or a friendship card!

Fun with Tim Holtz Oxide Sprays, Dies and Embossing Folders!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun today playing with our Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays to create a few backgrounds! I’ll be using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock for the card panels. This cardstock will allow the ink to flow and blend nicely and is heavy enough to avoid too much warping.

I thought I would create a loose pastel rainbow effect on each of the panels. However, for one of them we will allow a lot more blending and for the other one we will try to keep the colors a bit more separate to get more of a rainbow look.

To do our spraying we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays in the following colors: Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, and Salvaged Patina. I’ll show you in the video how I created the two different looks!

Once these panels are dry, we can grab the beautiful Tim Holtz Sizzix “Tapestry” Texture Fades embossing folder. This will add a beautiful pattern and wonderful texture to each of these panels. Although this embossing folder was released for the Fall/Halloween season, you will be amazed at how perfect it is for this card background!

Next, we can add a vintage look to the high spots on the embossed areas and some ink around the edges using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Scorched Timber.

Let’s take a look at the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Bloom, Colorize Die Set. There are two wonderful leaf sprays that we can die cut in some white cardstock. We will layer them using this white cardstock and then add some color by spattering the leaves with the various colors of Distress Inks. Let’s also add some Scorched Timber in around the edges.

For our sentiments, we will use the Tim Holtz idea-ology Quote Chips “Labels” set. This set has so many wonderful sentiments that it will be very hard to choose! We can ink around the edges of these quote chips as well.

Next, let’s assemble these items onto our card base which will be created using the Tim Holtz Distress Kraft Heavystock.

For a finishing touch, let’s add some beautiful Metallic Matte Gold Pearls!

Bunny Gift Card Holders – ***NEW*** Art Impressions

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun with the brand-new Ai Bunny Gift Card Set (5872) to create the cutest little gift card holders! This set is a great add-on product to use with your Ai Envelope Gift Card Holder (5344).

We will create two bunnies today… one with white cardstock and the other with some Kraft cardstock. We can go ahead and die cut all of the pieces. These dies are labeled for you on the back of the packaging so that you will know exactly which part of the bunny you are die cutting.

We will add some color to the bunny using some Distress Oxide Inks using a foam applicator tool. This way we can add some shadowing and color to the face, ears, paws and bow. For the bow we will be using some pretty glitter papers! Keep in mind that you could use some patterned papers if you prefer.

Next, let’s assemble the bunny and add a little heart in the bunny’s paws. This set does come with an Easter egg that can be placed here … but you could place a flower, sentiment or anything you like here if you wish. That way you could use this set all throughout the year for almost any occasion!

We can die cut the Ai Envelope Gift Card Holders and do a quick assembly and then next add some color to these as well.

Next, we will add some details with a permanent black pen. Let’s also add stitched lines to the ears, some lines on the paws, and some little whiskers!

You probably already know how much I like wiggly eyes … and I just had to add them to these bunnies! Let’s also add some dimension to the nose using a lacquer pen in pink. These little touches really add so much to the face and just make me smile!

Finally, I also wanted to add a cute fluffy tail to each of these bunnies using some sparkly pom-poms!

If you enjoyed this bunny add-on set, you may enjoy the other add-on products and videos using the Envelope GCH which I have done. Please feel free to check these out below:

Geo Arch – Foiling and Stenciling – Pinkfresh Studio!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will create two cards by doing some stenciling and foiling using the Pinkfresh Studio “Geo Arch” products. By combining the Hot Foil Plate and the coordinating three-part stencil set, we will get some absolutely beautiful results!

Let’s get started by using the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System to foil the Geo Arch Hot Foil Plate. We will use some pretty silver foil. This creates a gorgeous background which could be used with a sweet sentiment for a simple yet gorgeous card!

Next, we will using the coordinating three-part stencil set to add some color and dimension to this background. I’ll show you how to add some shadowing and spattering for added interest! We will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks for some beautiful blending.

Now we can add a strip of silver metallic cardstock to the left side of the card and some velvet trim in coordinating colors.

For the sentiments, we will be using some fun foiled ephemera pieces from Pinkfresh Studio. These ephemera sentiments and florals are fun to combine together for a unique look on your card! You could certainly foil your own sentiments using your Hot Foil Plates.

Finally, we will add some Pinkfresh Studio Silver Metallic Pearls on the ribbon and around the sentiments!

If you like the Geo Arch series, you may like this video I did using the stencil set on some masculine cards:

Slimline Shaker Card w/ Ai Hot Air Balloons!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Shake it Up!” and asks you to create a shaker card or have something that shakes, moves or even wobbles!

Let’s start by creating the basic design of our slimline card. To do this we will die cut a frame and center panel using the Ai Slimline Die Set (5463).

Now let’s get to the brand-new Ai Hot Air Balloon Set (5789) that we will be using today. This fun set includes several different sizes of the hot air balloons so that you can create some beautiful scenes with lots of perspective and interest.

We will stamp three of the large balloons onto the inside panel of our card. Let’s also stamp one more onto some Gina K. Masking Magic and cut this out using our detail scissors. This mask will be used when we stencil the clouds in the background. It will keep us from getting any color onto the balloons.

Next, we can temporarily place these two pieces back together so that we can stencil some pretty clouds in the background using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil. We will be using the Lisa Horton Crafts – Cloud 9 – Metallic Interference Ink Pad in Teal Twist for the clouds. This ink pad is so unique because of the interference nature of it which causes it to change color depending on the cardstock color it is place on. I will show you these differences in today’s video!

To add a bit more interest to the background we can add a few birds using the Lawn Fawn Beach Sunset Stencils and some Tim Holtz Black Soot ink.

Now we can color in the balloons using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Bright Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Aquamarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Smoky Teal, May Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Cool Gray 3.

We will now add some pretty metallic accents using the Signo Gel Pens in Silver and Gold!

We can build our shaker card by adding some clear acetate to the frame and then adding some 3D Foam Tape (remember to double this up) around the edges of the center panel. Let’s place some pretty clear sequins inside the shaker area and assemble the card and add a few extra sequins to the outside of the shaker to bring everything together!

Next, we can add a few sentiments using the brand-new Ai Mini Birthday Sentiment Set (5866) and the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We will stamp the sentiments onto some black cardstock and emboss with white embossing powder. We will die cut these sentiments using the Ai Flag Double Stitched Dies (5133). I’ll show you a little trick for adjusting your dies to fit your sentiment!

This new challenge is so much fun so please join us in this new blog challenge…. we would love to see what you create!

Picket Fence Studio Sequins – On a Cloudy Day


Sunny Studio Puddle Jumpers Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

We will be playing with the most adorable little stamp set in today’s video! It’s the Sunny Studio Puddle Jumpers Stamp Set and it includes all of the images that you need to create a fun spring, rainy day birthday card!

Let’s start by stamping all of our images and coloring them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Tea Rose, Yellow, Orange, Green, May Green, Turquoise Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Beige, Lt Gray, Dk Gray, Dk Brown.

Now we can cut these images out using our detail scissors. However, there is a coordinating die set and I will link that below for you. The cutting was a bit time consuming with the scissors. Therefore, I would suggest the coordinating die set if you don’t love cutting these out by hand.

We will cut the scallop frame two times using the Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Lattice Dies. One will remain as die cut and for the other one, we will cut off the scallops. This will allow us the keep the pretty stitched lines around the edges.

Let’s take the one where we cut off the scallops and stamp the Sunny Studio Sprawling Surfaces (the rocks) on the bottom of this panel. Apply a strip of masking tape above this stony border so that we can color the stones. To do this we will use the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and our Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker.

Now we can place a new mask over the stone border and do the sky. We will be creating rainy sky using some Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks. We will stamp the raindrop stamps included in the set and emboss these with some clear embossing powder. I’ll show you how to apply the inks directly to the cardstock for this textured sky. It’s a fun direct-to-paper technique that is fun and easy to do!

Let’s add a pretty cloud to the top of this panel using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border Dies. We will stamp a sentiment on this cloud that says, “Waddle You Know?” and we can also stamp the inside of the card, and this will say “It’s your birthday”.

Finally, we will assemble the card using some pretty yellow cardstock for the card base. We can pop up the cloud with some 3D Foam Tape … and don’t forget to add some cute items to the inside of the card!

Double Flap Gatefold Birthday Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a “Double Flap Gatefold” card! When you open the card, one of the flaps will go to the left and the other goes to the right! It’s a unique variation on a gatefold card that is lots of fun!

For our focal image we will be using the Ai Practically Perfect Set (5280). These adorable ladies are really going all out for this birthday celebration with cake, gifts, party hats and lots of confetti! There are also three perfectly coordinated sentiments included in this set.

We will first die cut the scallop ovals out of some lavender cardstock and the plain ovals from some white 100lb cardstock. These dies are from the Ai Journal Oval Frames (5588) Set.

Let’s start by stamping these ladies onto the largest white oval and the sentiment onto the smaller white oval. Now we can do some coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Flesh Colour, Yellow, Pale Violet, Lilac, Pale Green, Lt Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Haze Blue, Lt Gray, Beige, Gray.

Let’s assemble the ovals and add a strip of green plaid paper underneath the sentiment for a bit more interest. We will also add some pretty lavender gems to this strip of paper for some sparkle!

Now we can create the gatefold card base using the lavender cardstock and we will add some patterned paper panels from the Mini Birthday Paper Pack (5873) to the inside of the card and onto the flaps on the front of the card. I will show you exactly how to create this gatefold and give you all of the measurements in today’s video!

We will also add a scallop border to the left and right side of the inside of the card using the Ai Journal Template Set (5543). This will coordinate nicely with the scallop ovals on the front of the card.

Finally, we can glue the ovals to the two front flaps of the card. We will glue half of the oval with the ladies to the left panel and half of the oval with the sentiment to the right panel. This cute sentiment will say “A year older and still RIDICULOUSLY FABULOUS”!

This birthday card will bring a smile to anyone’s face, and it is so easy to create!
