Peeking Easter Bunny – Box cards!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating some fun and adorable “Box Cards” using the brand-new Ai Peeking Bunny Set (5870). This cute set includes an adorable bunny and bunny tail, as well as, a basket of eggs, a flowerpot with tulips, and a fun little cart filled with chicks and eggs. We are going to be using all of these images today to create three cards!

Let’s start by creating the card base for this box card design. I have designed this to be a 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ box card when folded. I will give you all of the instructions and dimensions for the box card base and all of the layering pieces in today’s video. I’ll also give you the complete instructions for the box assembly!

For the pretty patterned papers, we will use the Ai Easter Paper Pack (5742). This is a double-sided paper pack and will allow us to easily mix and match some patterns in the same color combinations. We can go ahead and add all of these papers to the cards.

Now we can stamp and color all of our sweet little images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Lt Carmine, Peach Pink, Yellow, Pale Orange, Bright Yellow, Orange, Pale Green, Lt Green, May Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Lt Violet, Violet, Dk Green, Beige, Lt Brown, Brown, Mid Brown, Platinum Brown, Lt Gray, Warm Gray 6, Dk Gray.

This set does include the coordinating dies, which will make cutting out these images very easy to do. Another wonderful thing about these dies is that they also cut a slit in the top of the pot, cart, and basket and it also cuts the paws on the bunny so that he/she can hold an egg, or sentiment or anything you like!

We will also die cut a scallop border for each of the boxes using the Ai Journal Template Set (5543). This can be glued onto the front panel of the box card.

Next, let’s stamp a couple of sentiments for the front and back of the card using the Ai Easter Sentiments Set (5733) and this new stamp set. To frame these sentiments, we will use the Ai Journal Rectangle Frames (5591). This little scallop square will coordinate nicely with the scallop border that we die cut!

Let’s go ahead and assemble all of the pieces onto the cards. The bunny will be holding the sentiment in its little paws…. which is just so much fun!

Using a white gel pen we can add some details to the eggs and highlights to the other images.

Finally, we can add a few iridescent sequins for some added interest and sparkle!

MINI SHAKER – using your paper scraps!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s use up some of our pretty paper scraps and create a mini shaker element for today’s card! We can begin by die cutting a rectangle panel using the Ai Nested Rectangle Die Set (5724). Now let’s grab some of our leftover paper scraps…I’m using my scraps from the Ai Easter Paper Pack (5742). We will be cutting these papers into 1/2″ strips and attaching them to the front of this rectangular panel. You can place your strips either horizontally or vertically or even on an angle. By using a pretty paper pad like this one, you can be sure that all of your paper strips will coordinate very nicely with each other!

Now we can die cut a larger rectangle with that same die set using the Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cardstock in Pixie Dust and then layer these panels onto the front of our card base.

Next let’s stamp and color our little pup. This image is from the Ai Birthday Journal Set (5722) which is part of the newer Watercolor Journal Series! This sweet image was colored in using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Tea Rose, Aquamarine Blue, Lilac, Lt Gray Platinum Brown. We will fussy cut this image with our detail scissors.

Now we can build the MINI SHAKER element…so much fun! We will be using the Ai Journal Oval Frames Set (5588) for the scallop circle and the Ai Nested Circle Die Set (5726) to create the scalloped frame. In this video I will show you how to assemble this little shaker element for your card! It’s very simple and easy to do!!!

Next we can die cut several flowers from the Ai Journal Oval Frames Set (5588) and some little white sprigs from the Ai Journal Rectangle Frames Set (5591).

Let’s assemble the shaker with the flowers and sprigs for a pretty little arrangement at the bottom of the shaker. And we can repeat the sparkly gems that we used inside the shaker on the center of each of the flowers!

Going back to the Birthday Journal Set we can die cut the “Celebrate” sentiment that is included with this stamp set. We will use the same sparkle cardstock and attach this to a delicate piece of vellum paper. This will give our sentiment a more elegant look!

GLOSSY GLAZE – Stenciled Birthday Cards!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a set of birthday cards using a brand new set of stamps from the Ai Watercolor Series. We will be using the slice of birthday cake image for our cards and this image is from the Ai Birthday Journal Set (5722). This small image will be simple and easy to color which is exactly what you want when you are creating multiple cards.

Let’s stamp this little slice of cake along with the sentiment. We will stamp all of these at the same time and create a little production line!

Next we can color in all three of the cakes using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Lilac, Bright Yellow, Beige, Lt Gray, Gray.

Now we can do some stenciling using the Hero Arts Lacy Floral Stencil Square. This is just so pretty and delicate. But the show stopper will be the Cosmic Shimmer Glossy Glazes that we will be stenciling with today. These are a translucent glaze that dries so shiny and beautiful. Once this glaze is dry you can cut it with your paper trimmer or you can even die cut with it….just be sure the glaze is completely dry!

To frame up the image and sentiment we will be using the Ai Journal Rectangle Frames (5591). These little scalloped squares are going to frame everything nicely. These frames will be in a medium gray and we will use this same gray cardstock as a layer on the cards.

Let’s go ahead and assemble the cards and add a bit of Baker’s Twine in coordinating colors! For a finishing touch we can add some Pinkfresh Studio Ombre’ Glitter Drops in Twilight, Pixie Dust, and Sparkle & Shine!

Now you have a fun set of birthday cards to give as a gift or just to have ready to go when you need them!

Center Flap Valentine Card – Nuts About You

Happy New Year!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

In today’s card we will be creating a fun “Center Flap” card! In the video I will be giving you all of the dimensions to create this unique fun flap card.

For our focal image we will be using this cute little squirrel from the Ai Nuts About You Stamp Set (4885). We will be stamping and coloring in this little critter using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Lt Carmine, Deep Vermilion, Lt Gray, Oatmeal, Beige, Mid Brown, Dk Brown. We can also stamp and color some little acorns to adorn our card!

We will be using a pretty striped patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn “All the Dots” Paper Pack. And also from Lawn Fawn we will be using the Guava and Paper Bag 100lb weight cardstocks for the card base and some layering.

To create the beautiful scalloped frame for our image we will be using the Ai Journal Rectangle Dies. Now we will die cut this several times and layer these together to give us a nice thick frame!

Next, to create the pretty scallop borders we will be using the Ai Journal Pocket Set Dies. I’ll show you how to extend this die in order to create a longer border. This is a great technique for extending the use of your small border dies!

Again, I will show you how to easily cut your cardstock in order to create this flap design. Now let’s add all of our layers and images. We can stamp our sentiments and heart banner from the same stamp set.

Finally, we can add some pretty pink sequins for added sparkle and shine!
