Ai - Enjoy The Day

Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!
I am over on the Art Impressions blog today sharing a card I made using the Baby Boy stamp set from Art Impressions. I wanted to show that this can also be used for a masculine card and not just a baby boy card.
I started by layering my card base with a white piece I used an embossing folder on.  I then layered a blue framed sentiment strip across the center with the sentiment "Enjoy the day" in the center. I finished it off with yellow Nuvo Drops.
From here I Copic colored four of my sailboats identically.  I fussy cut them out.  It's weird because sometimes I enjoy fussy cutting instead of dragging out my Scan N Cut.  I added a sailboat to each corner of my card with foam tape to give some dimension. 
Here is one more look at the finished card.  I really like the polished look of it and how it could be really for any occasion for anyone from a young boy to an older gentleman. 
What do you think of the card being masculine and not a "Welcome Baby" card.  I need more masculine cards in my stash!  

Copics used:
B12, B14, B16
C0, C1, C3
R35, R37, R39
Y13, Y15, Y17

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please come back soon and see all of the wonderful creation by myself and all of the Ai team over on the blog!

Until next time ... Hugs & inky fingers!


Ai - Happy Retirement!

Wednesday, January 8, 2020
Hello Ai fans!!

 I am over on the Art Impressions blog today using the newly released stamp set called Happy Trails.  This stamp set is so much fun. Tomorrow you will see another card using this set for the current challenge going on.
I knew as soon as I saw this set I wanted a chill, laid back retirement card.  I think I achieved it with this card; wouldn't you agree??
I started by stamping the images all at the same time with my Misti. I lined up the palm tree, the sentiment, and beach bum and stamped them at once.  I then stamped them a second time onto my masking paper and covered up my palm tree and beach bum.
Ok, here is where the magic happens.  I took another piece of masking paper and made a horizon line.  So I have the bottom portion of my card covered along with my palm tree and beach bum.  I ink blended some blue in to emulate the sky. From there I reversed the direction of my straight piece of masking paper and covered up the blue I just applied.  I ink blended some brown to emulate the sand. Peel off all your masking paper and reveal the magic scene and ares to Copic color. From here you Copic color your images and that's it, you are done.

Here is the full card again.  Isn't a simple one layer card all you need sometimes? I am so please with how this turned out.  You know you can save your cut out masked images to reuse another time, right?

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by please come back again soon and see what I have been up to.
