Rustic Cardinal Ornament – using your Art Impressions FREEBIE Stamp!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Maybe you need a few last-minute Christmas ornaments or gifts for your friends and family. I thought this beautiful cardinal would be perfect! And the best part…. this stamp is part of the FREEBIE series from Art Impressions. There are several FREEBIES available … you can select one free stamp with a $30 purchase! I’ll show you all of the FREEBIES in this video. You will definitely have a hard time choosing one… but don’t wait too long if you are interested because these FREEBIES choices are only available for a limited time!

Let’s go ahead and stamp and color the cardinal image using some alcohol markers. I’ll be using the Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I’m using these because this will allow the coloring to be fade-proof and permanent and this is especially important on an ornament that we will want to last a long time!

I will be decorating a round paper mâché ornament that I purchased at my local craft store. We will add a little ink to this using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Ground Espresso. I want this circle to look like a slice of wood….so we will add some woodgrain paper from the Ai Christmas S2 Paper Pack (5812).

We will die cut the woodgrain paper from the largest circle in the Ai Nested Circle Dies (5726) set. Let’s also grab a few more papers from this same paper pack and die cut some pretty hearts using the Ai Nested Heart Dies (5721) set.

Now we can stamp and color a few of the little holly and berries from the Ai Christmas Mice Set (5459) and use the coordinating die to cut these out. We will add a bit of glaze to each of the berries for some added dimension!

Let’s create a sentiment for the back of the ornament by recreating the same stack of woodgrain and hearts and then die cut a smaller heart out of some white cardstock. We can stamp the sentiment with some red ink using the sentiment that says, “Winter Kisses and Christmas Wishes” from the Ai Chubby Snowmen Set (5351) set.

Finally, lets assemble the ornament and add a few matte gold gems to complete the look!

Joyful Snowman Card w/ Pearl Paste

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a brand-new stamp and die set to show you today….and you are going to love it! It is the Ai Joyful Snowman Set (5802) and it include three of the most adorable festive snowmen and many coordinating sentiments.

Let’s get started by stamping and coloring the joyful snowman using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Haze Blue, Sky Blue, Lt Gray, Sugared Almond Pink, Carmine, Wine Red, Orange, May Green, Green.

Next, we can create the background for our scene card using the beautiful White Pearl Paste from Hero Arts and the Lawn Fawn Snowy Sky Stencil. This will give us some pretty pearl snowflakes!

Now we can add some ink blending to this background using the Hero Arts Core Inks in Mist, Periwinkle and Aegean using a small blending brush.

Next, we will die cut a frame for this card using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724) and some snowy borders from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Dies.

Let’s also stamp and color in some pretty packages and some berry and holly leaves from the Ai Christmas Mice Set (5459) in the same colors we used on our snowman.

For the sentiment we will use the “Warmest Holiday Wishes” along with a scallop circle from the Ai Journal Oval Frames (5588). The patterned papers are from the Ai Valentines PP (5741). Let’s also cut the red and white striped paper for the front of the card.

Next, we can add a few highlights with a white gel pen and now we can quickly assemble this fun holiday card!! You can easily switch the snowmen from this set using this same design…so I hope you have as much fun as I did with this wonderful new set!
