***NEW*** Art Impressions Watercolor Roses!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the new Art Impressions “You’re a Gem” Blog Challenge!  The challenge is to use a bit of bling on your card or project. I’m honored to be the featured artist for this fun new challenge!

I’ve got a beautiful brand-new watercolor set to show you from Art Impressions called WC Roses (5831). This set contains several different roses and a few leaves and sprigs. I love this little set because it is so versatile and can be used with so many of your other sets!

We are going to do a bit of simple water-coloring today using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Pink, Geranium Red, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Lt Green, Green. However, we will be using a water-brush and the Zigs together for a very loose watercolor look! I love this coloring technique because it is so easy and doesn’t have to be perfect.

While we have our Zigs at hand, we can add a few spatters in the pinks and yellow/red colors. This will tie everything together!

Let’s start by die cutting two panels using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724) in white and pink cardstock. We will stamp and emboss several roses from this new set using one of my favorite embossing powders in Liquid Platinum. We will stamp the two panels at the same time using the MISTI stamp positioner. This will make the stamping so much quicker and easier. But most importantly it will allow the two panels to be exactly the same and this will be important when we cut the pink cardstock at an angle.

Let’s cut the pink panel … and I will show you exactly how I measured and cut these angles for a fun and unique look on our card!

Now we can pop-up the pink onto the white panel using some 3D Foam Tape for some added interest and dimension.

Next we can add a layer of pretty metallic silver cardstock and attach this whole piece to a white card.

Let’s add a cute little tag using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and a sentiment using the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We can also stamp this tag with another rose using the same WC Roses set.

Finally, let’s add more bling by adding a few shiny silver metallic pearls and a few dots of silver using the Signo Gel Pen!

Please join in on this new blog challenge…. I would love to see what you create!

Tim Holtz Sparkle and Wine Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s play with the brand-new Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades “Sparkle” Embossing Folder! We are going to “double” emboss this folder on our card today.

We will start by running the embossing folder through the die cutting machine as we would normally do. Next, we will use the Tim Holtz Embossing Pen and Embossing Glazes to add another layer of embossing. All we need to do is apply some embossing ink (from the embossing pen) to the high spots on the cardstock and then apply some embossing glaze in a variety of bright colors. Heat set this and check out the wonderful dimension, color and shine that you get!

Keep in mind that you could totally change the look of this embossing folder. For example, this would be beautiful with gold, silver and copper for a more elegant look! Have some fun with this!

Let’s ink up the card panel using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. Remember to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas because the ink just won’t dry on the embossing glaze.

Now we can stamp and color the wine bottle and wine glass and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Deep Red, Yellow, Mustard, Beige, Mid Brown, Haze Blue. These images are from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous – Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set – Wine Blueprint and Strip sets. Although these images have been around for a bit, they are absolute classics and make a great addition to your crafty stash.

We will add the sentiment using the Tim Holtz idea-ology Theories Quote Chips which will say “love with all your heart”. Just ink the edges a bit to finish off this quote chip.

Next, we can assemble the card panel onto a black card base, and we will also add a few sparkly hearts to each of the wine glasses using the Buttons Galore & More Red Hearts.

This card would be great for New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Wedding, Congratulations, Birthday and so much more!!!

Tim Holtz Road Trip … w/ Mountain Scene Layering Stencil!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’m so excited to be showing a couple of great products! We will be using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Road Trip Colorize die set today! This set is absolutely fantastic and includes the dies needed to create this fun car and some clouds, trees and a cute little sign! If you haven’t used these colorize dies yet you will see how easy it is to do….and it is so much fun!

And I’m equally as excited to show you this amazing 4-part Layering Mountain Scene Stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop! I’ll give you a few tips for stenciling this in today’s video. This stencil is so versatile and could be used with so many of our stamp sets.

To do all of the coloring today we will be using several of the TH Distress Oxide Ink Pads! We will quickly spatter the background of the scene using the Dr Ph Martin’s Bleed Proof White Ink. This will just bring everything together.

We will be creating a woodgrain frame for the scene using the Th Distress Woodgrain Cardstock. I’ll show you some tips for coloring this cardstock and creating a realistic woodgrain look! And for the road at the bottom of the card we will be using the TH 3-D Texture Fades Embossing Folder – Cobblestone #2. This will add lots of texture and dimension! We can a bit of ink to this panel for a more realistic look!

Now we can die cut all of the pieces needed to create the car and sign. I’ll show you how to easily assemble these in the video.

Finally we can wrap some twine around the bottom of the card and add a little charm from the TH idea-ology – Word Tags. Let’s also add a metal star to the sign which is from the TH idea-ology Adornments – Stars and also add the “good life” sentiment to the sign using the TH idea-ology Remnant Rubs – Tiny Text.

I hope this video will show you how easy it is to use these COLORIZE die sets and the fantastic results you can get!

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!

Art Impressions “Cruise Control” Center Step Card

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Let’s create a fun Center Step Card today using the wonderful images from the Ai Pack Your Bags (4932) stamp set. This set includes all of the images that you will need to create a great scene! It includes this adorable couple all decked out in their floral print shirts and enough bags for a long relaxing vacation!

I wanted to create some unique dimensions to accommodate the different sizes between the man and woman images. He is carrying a lot of bags…so I wanted the left side of the Step Card to be a bit wider and the right side to be a bit narrower. I will give you all of the dimensions and instructions to create this unique sized Center Step Card!

We will also create a beautiful sky using the Distress Oxide Ink Pads in Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral, and Mustard Seed. These three colors will make the perfect blend for our sky! For the ocean, we will be using the Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean inks.

To create the dock for our vacationers, we will be using a 3D Embossing Folder which will create the look of woodgrain with lots of dimension!

These cards are so much fun to make….I hope you give it a try!!! This card would be great for a birthday, retirement, or a vacation celebration card!!!

This card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge – Oceans of Fun! The challenge is to create a card with a fun water element…this can be anything you want including rain, ponds, oceans, puddles, or anything else you can come up with…just have fun!!! Please join in on this fun challenge by creating your own project or just by checking out all of the fun cards that your crafty peers have created!

Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box – Happy Retirement

Hello and Welcome! In today’s video we will be creating this fun Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box using Lawn Fawn products! I thought that this beach theme would be fun for a retirement theme…but I also think that this would be a great Party Favor for a beach themed wedding. It would be fun to have two sets of flip flops in the sand creating a Mr. and Mrs. scene. Also, if you are making a lot of party favors this is pretty simple to mass produce!

This Party Favor was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #54 – Perfect for Parties (pictured below).
