Art Impressions Recliner King Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

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!

I really pictured this guy sitting in his basement “man cave” enjoying his favorite television show with his little feline friend looking on!!! And…the chair had to be colored in the vintage 1970’s olive greens!

I’ll show you how to simply create a staircase by using some grid sheets or graph paper. We will add the cute little cat by using the Art Impressions Cats Mini Dies (5333). And we will add some fun elements to the walls by using the Art Impressions MB Wall Accessories (5323). I always love to look through all of my images for some other elements to add to my scene and these wall accessories were perfect!

All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens which are listed below and on the video as well.

Art Impressions – Mr. Hat’s Backyard BBQ Card

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!!!

This card was inspired by the new Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is to create a card with “Person-ality”! These would be projects with people and personality! Check out the link below!

Art Impressions Masculine Scene Card and Gift Card Holder

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!!

In today’s video and card I thought I would create a masculine scene card and matching gift card holder.

Shhhhh…don’t tell my husband that this is his Valentine Card Set! He loves the outdoors and takes long walks everyday….rain, shine or snow. So I thought that it would be fun to create a peaceful winter scene using the beautiful “As the Deer” stamp set (5128) and the sentiment “Life with you is Wonderful” from the “Enjoy the Ride” stamp set (5186)!

This is a very simple scene to create. So if you are little bit intimidated about trying an elaborate watercolor scene card then this might be just the card for you!

To set the scene I have used a wonderful Sizzix 3-D Textured Embossing Folder with Jeweled Snowflakes!

I think this could also be used for a retirement (which I show an example), birthday, anniversary, or even a sympathy card due to its peaceful nature!
