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).
