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!

GNOMES – Bridge Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a unique style Bridge Card! We just need to make a few folds and cuts in order to create the base for our card. I will give you all of the measurements and cutting instructions in this video!

Our little gnome stamps and dies will come from the Ai Gnomes Set (5785) which is a brand-new set from the Summer 2023 collection. We can stamp them onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Deep Vermillion, Mustard, Evergreen, Smoky Teal, Lt Gray, Mid Brown. Let’s also die cut these using the coordinating dies.

Next, we can create the Bridge card base and add some decorative patterned papers from the Ai Gnomes Paper Pack (5832). Again, all of the measurements are included in the video!

Now we can die cut a beautiful frame using the brand-new Ai Journal Die Set. This will act as the bridge element for our card. We will add a few layers to this frame. The top layer will be used to create our sky and grass which will be inked up using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Speckled Egg and Peeled Paint. I’ll show you and easy way to mask off each of these areas on your card. We can quickly spatter this panel using some Bleed Proof White Ink.

Let’s assemble the card layers and add the bridge element to the card, being careful to glue the bridge element to only the right and left sides of the frame panel.

The sentiment for the inside of the card is from the same Gnome set and it says, “friends gnome matter what” and the sentiment for the front of the card will come from the brand-new Ai Little Sentiments Set (5797) and will say, “Hi Friend!”. The “Hi Friend” sentiment will be stamped onto a cute banner from that same Ai Journal Die Set.

We will add a few cute white stars to the banner from the Buttons Galore & More Sparkletz Firecracker embellishment set.

Finally, let’s add some highlights using our white gel pen. This will just make everything pop out a bit better!

If you love this little gnome set please feel free to check out my “Spinner Card – There’s GNOME one like you!” video which is linked here:

Spinner Card – There’s GNOME one like you!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

https://youtu.be/T5lJTwlxYPk

Today we will be creating one of my favorite card designs which is the super fun spinner style card! You just wind up the spinning element and then place the card in the envelope and when the recipient opens the card the cute little gnome will spin around!!! The cute front and back gnome images will come from the brand new Ai Gnomes Set (5785). This set includes this larger front and back image as well as several smaller gnomes that are simply adorable!

Let’s first create the card base using some Kraft cardstock. This square card will measure 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Next we can cut a layer of Dark Brown cardstock and the third layer will be a pretty patterned paper from the brand new Ai Gnomes Paper Pack (5832).

We will be die cutting the square openings for the card using the Ai Nested Square Dies (5725). In this video I will give you some tips and tricks for die cutting these square openings in all of the layers so that everything lines up perfectly!

So I thought it would be fun to use the Gnomes Paper Pack to do some paper piecing on our little gnome. We will stamp the image onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock…this will be the base of our gnome and then we will stamp the image a few more times onto the patterned papers that will become the hat, outfit, shoes and hands.

Next we can fussy cut these pieces and then glue them to the base image. That will just leave us to color the beard and nose and to do this we will use the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Gray Tint, and Blush.

Now we can assemble the spinner mechanism and I will give you very detailed instructions for doing this in the video. It’s super easy and fun to do!!!

For a few finishing touches let’s add some twine and a few sparkly red hearts!

I will be using the smaller gnomes in a cute card which will be coming out in the near future….so if you love these little gnomes you may want to keep and eye out for that card!

Sizzix “You are so cool” Card (using the Crazy Characters #2 Set)

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a super fun summer card to show you today! This sweet Popsicle card will be created using the Sizzix Thinlits w/ Stamps – Crazy Characters #2 Set. This cute set includes the popsicle, a volcano, and a beautiful sun!

Let’s start by inking up some cardstock for our Popsicle colors using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo. For the Popsicle stick we will be using Antique Linen.

What makes this die set so easy to use is that it cuts out the base of the Popsicle as well as the layers and sprinkles (aka shots!).

We will die cut the layers from all of the pretty pastel papers that we colored and then mix and match them for the little Popsicles. If you want to create the look of a little bite being taken from one of the Popsicles you can go ahead and do this now using a scalloped circle die from the Sizzix Framelits w/ Stamps – Circle Sentiments Set.

Next we can add the sprinkles and then add some clear glaze over the top to give them the look of being frozen. While the glaze is still wet we can add a bit of glitter for some added interest!

For the base of the card we will die cut two stitched panels from the Lawn Fawn Slimline Stackables Dies. The largest one will get colored using the same 4 pastel colors we used previously and then with the smaller panel we will emboss this using the Sizzix 3-D Textured Impresssions – Tropical Leaves embossing folder.

On this embossed panel we will be adding some baker’s twine in those same pastel colors and tying a knot on the front of the panel.

For the larger panel we can add a sentiment from this same stamp set that says “You are so” and next we can die cut the work “cool” from the Sizzix Thinlits – Essential Type alphabet set. We can add some of that same glaze to the letters to give them the same glossy shine as the Popsicles!

Let’s assemble our fun summery card! This card can be used for so many occasions including birthday, hello, and thinking of you cards!

I Hope are all having a great summer filled with family, friends and good times!!!

Shaker Card w/ Cozy Cat Cubbies!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a super fun shaker card to show you today! We will be using the adorable Ai Cozy Cat Cubbies Set (5098). This set has a fun cat tree/condo scratching post and several little cats, a ball of yarn, and several coordinating sentiments!

To get started let’s grab some pretty blue patterned paper and die cut the front panel for the shaker card. We will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063) and Ai Oval Double Stitched Dies (5065). This will give us a pretty stitched border around the rectangle and the oval.

Next we can stamp and color all of the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Rose, Haze Blue, Smoky Olive, Plum Gray, Mustard, Lt Brown, Beige, Sand, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown, Cool Gray 6, Mid Brown, Smoky Teal. (Note: Stamp plenty of balls of yarn and color them in a variety of colors!)

Since this set does include all of the coordinating dies so we can go ahead and die cut everything!

Let’s assemble the shaker element for the card and add some chunky glitter and a bunch of the little balls of yarn! I’ll give you some tips and tricks for assembling the shaker element of the card in today’s video!

Next, we can stamp the sentiment for the card using the same set and it says “sending warm fuzzy felines”! We can die cut a small banner for the sentiment using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). Let’s pop this up for a bit of added dimension!

Finally, we can add a few pretty light blue heart gems!

This is just so cute and fun when you shake those little balls of yarn and that pretty glitter!

If you really love the “cubbies” images you may want to check out another video that I recently released: Birdhouse Cubbies Slimline Card – Adding Dimension without Pop-Dots, Gems or Bows!!!

SPOTLIGHT TECHNIQUE – Queen of Craft!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a fun and crafty card using the Ai Queen of Craft (5563) stamp set. This set is just perfect to create cards for your fellow stampers and scrapbookers! We will be using a simple spotlight technique in order to highlight just a small section of this image. This will reduce the amount of coloring that is needed….especially for those of you who don’t love the coloring process…or for those of you who are looking for a quicker way to use your large images or backgrounds.

We can start by stamping the image twice and then cutting the full image out using the Ai Nested Square Dies (5725) and the Ai Nested Oval Dies (5727) to cut out the area that is going to be in the spotlight!

Next we can color in the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Orange, Yellow, Peach Pink, Lilac, Turquoise Green, Lt Green, Lt Gray, Beige.

We can go back to the nested square dies to create the layers of pink and green for our card and for the sentiment on the inside of the card. These nested die sets have a large selections of sizes which is great for layering your cards as well as creating frames of various sizes!

Now let’s use the fun and festive Lawn Fawn Splatter Stencil to create a colorful background using several pastel colors of the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. We will also use this stencil to create a matching envelope!

Next we can die cut the “Crafty” sentiment die that is included in the stamp set. I die cut this in several colors but did decide on the pink one….of course!

Let’s glue all of our layers on to the card and then add a bit of baker’s twine in pink/white around the bottom of the card and tie it into a pretty bow.

We can add some sparkle to the sentiment with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and we can add this to some of the other images as well.

Let’s add a few heart gems in a pastel pink from the Dress My Craft collection. The final step will be to stamp and assemble the sentiment for the inside of the card and add the little cluster of paint brushes (included in the stamp set) underneath the sentiment.

This finishes off our simple spotlight design. I hope you decide to give this fun technique a try!

Tim Holtz Papercut Cafe Card w/ Acrylic Block Stamping!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a fun background for our card using a round acrylic stamping block! This is so much fun and so easy to do! With this technique you’ll be able to create lots of backgrounds in a very short period of time!

We will be inking up the round acrylic block with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, and Ripe Persimmon. Now we can spritz the ink with a bit of water and then press onto the cardstock. I like to let it sit for a second or two…this allows the ink to make a nice transfer. I will talk about this a bit more…and show you some tips and techniques in the video!

Now for a bit more interest, let’s do some stenciling using the Stamperia Create Happiness Stencil using the Gathered Twigs ink. To bring everything together we can spatter this background using some white ink and then the Gathered Twigs ink again!

We can also add this same ink around the edges of this panel using a blending brush. Now we can die cut a panel from this background using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Vintage Label dies. We will die cut this label and ink around the edges and then place it back onto the card by popping it up with some foam tape. This will highlight our coffee cup a bit more!

Let’s go ahead and die cut the coffee cup and all of its layers using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Papercut Cafe’ dies. For the layering papers we will be using the Scrapbook.com Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad in the Warms. In the video I will show you how these dies are labeled and how easily you can die cut and assemble the pieces of the cup and steam.

Let’s start layering the card with a pretty floral panel from the Tim Holtz idea-ology Backdrops Volume #1 Paper Pad and we can add a coordinating velvet ribbon from the Tim Holtz idea-ology Velvet Trims Warms collection.

Finally, we can add a few gems using the Tim Holtz Halloween Droplets!

NEW RELEASE – Cat Matchbook w/ Matching Envelope!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card and video were inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge which is called the “Green Galore Challenge”. For this challenge we need to create a card or project using lots of green…in honor of St. Patrick’s Day…but any green will do. Just have fun with the color green!

I really wanted to challenge myself so I decided to use the BRAND NEW Matchbook Cats Set (5730). So our walls, furniture, pillows, rug, etc. will be done in a variety of greens. I would never have used this combination on my own without this challenge. That is why these challenges are so great…they really help you get inspired to look at your supplies in a whole new way…and maybe combine things together that you may not normally think of doing.

Just keep in mind that you will need the MB Template Dies (5317) to create the base of the card and you will need the MB Envelope Dies (5318) to create the coordinating envelope.

I will give you all of the instructions for assembling the little matchbook and envelope! These are so much fun to create and collect. There are LOTS AND LOTS of matchbook designs to choose from but this little cat set is brand new and just so very cute!

The new release also includes the following Matchbook Sets: MB Chicken (5731), and MB Tool Shed (5729)! These new sets are just so cute and will be a great addition to your Matchbook collection!

We will be using some absolutely beautiful papers today from the 49 and Market 6″x8″ Spectrum Sherbet Collection Pack – Tidal Wave set. These papers have all different shades of greens and turquoise greens which are perfect for this project!

All of the coloring was done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Emerald Green, Turquoise Green, Ever Green, Lt Green, Deep Green, Moss Green, Brick Beige, Beige, Lt Brown, Brown, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Cool Gray #6.
