Slimline Shaker Card w/ Ai Hot Air Balloons!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Shake it Up!” and asks you to create a shaker card or have something that shakes, moves or even wobbles!

Let’s start by creating the basic design of our slimline card. To do this we will die cut a frame and center panel using the Ai Slimline Die Set (5463).

Now let’s get to the brand-new Ai Hot Air Balloon Set (5789) that we will be using today. This fun set includes several different sizes of the hot air balloons so that you can create some beautiful scenes with lots of perspective and interest.

We will stamp three of the large balloons onto the inside panel of our card. Let’s also stamp one more onto some Gina K. Masking Magic and cut this out using our detail scissors. This mask will be used when we stencil the clouds in the background. It will keep us from getting any color onto the balloons.

Next, we can temporarily place these two pieces back together so that we can stencil some pretty clouds in the background using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil. We will be using the Lisa Horton Crafts – Cloud 9 – Metallic Interference Ink Pad in Teal Twist for the clouds. This ink pad is so unique because of the interference nature of it which causes it to change color depending on the cardstock color it is place on. I will show you these differences in today’s video!

To add a bit more interest to the background we can add a few birds using the Lawn Fawn Beach Sunset Stencils and some Tim Holtz Black Soot ink.

Now we can color in the balloons using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Bright Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Aquamarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Smoky Teal, May Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Cool Gray 3.

We will now add some pretty metallic accents using the Signo Gel Pens in Silver and Gold!

We can build our shaker card by adding some clear acetate to the frame and then adding some 3D Foam Tape (remember to double this up) around the edges of the center panel. Let’s place some pretty clear sequins inside the shaker area and assemble the card and add a few extra sequins to the outside of the shaker to bring everything together!

Next, we can add a few sentiments using the brand-new Ai Mini Birthday Sentiment Set (5866) and the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We will stamp the sentiments onto some black cardstock and emboss with white embossing powder. We will die cut these sentiments using the Ai Flag Double Stitched Dies (5133). I’ll show you a little trick for adjusting your dies to fit your sentiment!

This new challenge is so much fun so please join us in this new blog challenge…. we would love to see what you create!

Birdhouse Cubbies Slimline Card – Adding Dimension without Pop-Dots, Gems or Bows!!!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge and that was to create a birthday card to celebrate Bonnie’s birthday! Please feel free to join us in this blog challenge by posting your card or project that has a birthday theme….any birthday theme will do! I’m sure Bonnie would love to see what you create to celebrate her special day!

Today we will be creating a fun slimline card using the Ai Birdhouse Cubbies Set (5346). This adorable set includes a beautiful birdhouse, birds, flowers, a vine and several fun sentiments! An added bonus is that this set does include the dies! You will love how the birdhouse die cuts out the window openings and the doors on the birdhouse which make this image very interactive!

For this card I decided to add an additional challenge for myself which was to create a one layer card that would have lots and lots of texture, dimension and interest without adding any ribbons, bows, gems or pop-dots! I will give you some tips and tricks for doing this in today’s video.

Let’s get started by stamping and coloring all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Orange, Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Mid Green, Dark Green, Aquamarine Blue, Smoky Teal, Beige, Gray Brown, Mid Brown, Lt Gray. Once the coloring is complete we can die cut all of the images.

Next let’s create a frame for the decorated card panel to sit inside by using the Ai Slimline Dies Set (5463). To set the scene for this card panel we will add some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Speckled Egg and then we will spatter the panel with the same ink and also some teal colored metallic watercolor paint!

Going back to the same stamp set we will stamp our cute sentiment on the front of the card and this says “A little birdie told me it was your birthday”. This set has several cute coordinating sentiments!

Let’s cut off the post on the birdhouse so that it looks like it is hanging from a tree branch. We will use a black permanent marker to create the ribbon for the birdhouse and then draw on a cute little bow. Now we can add all of our little birds, flowers and vines….again gluing everything flat….but you could certainly pop some items up if you wish!

So hopefully you can see how easy it is to add lots of interest and dimension to your cards by using a variety of fun and creative techniques!

Please join me in wishing Bonnie a blessed and beautiful birthday!!!
