Art Impressions – Butterfly Beauty w/ Resist and Ink Blending Techniques

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Todays feature card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge which is to create a project that features something that flies or floats….think birds, butterflies, airplanes, balloons, kites or anything else you can think up! Just have fun!

We will be creating an elegant square butterfly card! Let’s start with the beautiful butterflies from the Ai Butterfly Set (5200). We will be stamping and embossing these butterflies using a super fine detail white embossing powder. This will give our butterflies and elegant look! In todays video I will be showing you a simple and fun watercolor technique to color these butterflies by using our Distress Oxide Inks. Today we will be using the brand new Distress Oxide Ink in Saltwater Taffy along with some Picked Raspberry. These two colors will combine beautifully!

Next, with those two Distress Oxide ink colors we will do our background. To start, we will use some clear embossing ink with a gorgeous floral stencil and then apply that same super fine detail white embossing powder. Once the stenciling and embossing is done, we will then do some ink blending with our blending brushes.

For a bit more elegance we will add some pretty gold metallic layers and some delicate two-tone pearl gems!

I’ll show you how to create a matching square envelope using an envelope punch board! I love coordinating a beautiful envelope to go with my card creation…and your friends and family will love it too! Just keep in mind that these square cards do cost a bit more for postage…but I plan on hand delivering mine to a special friend!

Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze – Perspective Butterfly Cards!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun with the Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glazes!!! These embossing powders are unique in that they are a translucent powder…so that anything that is underneath will show through! When it is embossed it creates this beautiful super shiny glazed look…and what is really beautiful is when the colors overlap and create another unique color. We will be using an embossing ink with a sponge dabber for a more precise inking and blending. I’ll be showing you some tips and tricks for blending these embossing colors!

For our focal image, we will be using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Perspective Butterfly, which is a super sized die! It measures approximately 6 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and will completely fill the front of your card. This would also be great for an art journal page as well!

To set the scene for our card, we will be using the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Lumber embossing folder. This will give us a beautiful rustic backdrop for these bright and shiny butterfly cards. We will ink up this panel with some Distress Oxide inks using some blending brushes. I wanted to keep the butterfly as the focal point and keep the rest of the card very simple.

Finally, we will add some beautiful pearls and sequins for a little bit of dimension and a sentiment using the Tim Holtz Label Stickers (Thoughts and Sentiments).

Art Impressions Grapevine Slimline Card w/ Glitter Pens

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!

Let’s make an elegant slimline card today using the beautiful Art Impressions Grape Border Set (5375)!

For our coloring today, I thought it would be fun to do what I call a Faux Glitter Technique, but is really just some simple coloring using some beautiful gel pens. These gel pens will actually stay wet long enough for us to to some gorgeous blending! This technique makes it look as thought you applied glue and glittered each of these images! I’ll give you a few tips and trick for coloring with these pretty pens!

We will frame our image by adding some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Ink around the edges of our lavender card panel.

We will be embossing with white embossing powder on some Kraft cardstock and then layering this onto some textured dot cardstock!

And then…let’s stamp on some pearlescent vellum paper and add a few delicate sequins and a bit of twine for some added dimension!

In todays video and card we will be creating a super fun masculine card using the brand new Art Impressions Sit Back Laugh Lines (5421) Set! This set has so many great sentiments which will help you create the perfect masculine card for any occasion!

Art Impressions Submarine Cubbies Slider Card w/ Distress Sprays

Hello Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will be using the brand new Submarine Cubbies Set (5397)!!! This set is part of the Critter Cubbies Collections which also includes the new Hen House Cubbies Set (5396). These wonderful new images include the coordinating dies!!!

We will be creating a fun interactive slider card! I will show you how to create a slider card with a larger focal element, like the submarine, so that it won’t flop around on your card. We will stabilize it so that it slides back and forth evenly and steadily!

To set the scene for our underwater scene we will use the beautiful Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays. I will show you how easy it is to use these sprays to create the textured water and sand backgrounds!

We will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to do all of our coloring today!
