Art Impressions “Java” Valentine Gift Card Holder

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!

In today’s video we will be creating a special Valentine Gift Card Holder using the Java GCH Set (5343)! This set comes with all of the dies needed to create a take-out style coffee cup for the front of your Envelope Gift Card Holder (which does need to be purchased separately). But once you have the Envelope GCH Set you can then add any of the GCH Sets to this little pocket envelope.

We will be repurposing some left over Christmas/Holiday papers! This is a great time to look through your holiday paper stash and use up some of those leftovers. Many of the holiday papers include reds and pinks that are perfect for your Valentine cards. The paper pack that we are using today has some coordinating double sided papers that I thought would be perfect for my gift card holder. I did create this in a more masculine palette but you could certainly change out your pattern papers to get a more feminine look.

The GCH collection also includes the Santa Set (5339), Snowman Set (5340), Birthday Cake Set (5407), and the Black Cat Set (5341). If you really love these little gift card holders you may enjoy watching a few different videos I have done using these products, which are linked below:

Today’s card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is to create a fun and unique shaped card and I thought this “Java” cup would be perfect! Please join us in this super fun challenge by linking your card creations or just by checking out the cards submitted by your crafty peers!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

It’s another great day!!! I’ve got another video of the brand new matchbooks in the Ai matchbook series to show you today! This one is called the MB Santa Christmas and it includes all of the elements needed to create an adorable Christmas scene…including the sweet Santa, the fireplace with Christmas stockings, a beautiful little Christmas tree, wreath and two lovely sentiments!

Today we will be coloring in our images using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers and we will do some simple coloring and blending using a blender pen. For a bit of sparkle, we will use the Wink of Stella Glitter Gloss Pen. We will also use some beautiful double-sided papers from the Tim Holtz idea-ology Collection.

We will be using a traditional Christmas color palette for a bit of a vintage look!

Art Impressions Vintage Christmas Wreath Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

For todays card and video I’m excited to show you this elegant vintage Christmas Wreath Card! This was created using the Christmas Wreath Set (4791). This is just such a beautiful wreath set which includes a lovely bow, sentiment and holly/berry sprig! We will be using all of the elements of this stamp set for this card today!

I will show you how to easily create this archway shaped card! To add some dimension we will be using a 3-D Textured Embossing Folder and we will stack up several of the bows for some nice visual interest!

To give this card a vintage vibe, we will add some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. For even more dimension we will add some Crystal Glaze to the little berries in our wreath!

We will also finish the inside of the card by adding another archway and decorating it with the holly and berry sprigs and we will stamp the “Merry Christmas” sentiment with some Red Geranium ink!!!

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!
