Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new Ai So Sweet Armfuls Stamp and Die Set (5904). This little set includes the cute bear that we will be using today, as well as, an elephant, heart, cupcake and a sentiment! When you die cut these little “Armful” images it will create a little slit above and below the arms so that they can hold the heart or cupcake or anything else you may want to place in their arms!

We can die cut the Ai Rounded Rectangle Double Stitched Dies (5062) panel using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock.

Now we can create a stenciled flower background using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, and Festive Berries. We will add layers of ink using some blending brushes. Starting with the lightest color and adding the two darker colors. Once we have completed stenciling the flowers we can remove the stencil and spatter the background. Let’s set this aside to dry completely and then we will come back to it later.

While we are waiting let’s go ahead and stamp and color the little bear using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Pink Haze, Beige, Mid Brown, Gray Tint. To color the heart, we will use the Distress Oxide Inks and then we will use those same inks to add some polka dots to the heart and the overalls on the bear.

Next, we can die cut the bear and heart. You will see the little slits that I talked about earlier. This is where we will slide in our polka dotted heart.

Now that the background panel is dry let’s add the pretty glitter paste using that same flower stencil. This will add lots of texture and sparkle to this panel!

Now we can grab the Ai Gift Card Pocket Set (5811) to die cut the pieces we need to create pretty bow and the “Thank You” sentiment.

Let’s quickly assemble the card and add a few pearls that have the pink and brown mix which will just bring everything together!

For the inside of the card, let’s stamp the sentiment that came with the stamp set and emboss it using some detail white embossing powder. Now we can die cut the sentiment using one of the heart dies from the Ai Nested Heart Dies Set (5721).
