Fun Fold Card with Art Impressions Twist Ties

Hey everyone! This week for Art Impressions I'm using the Dog Twist Ties stamp set. I was really inspired by the sentiment "sending you a teenie weenie hug", So cute! I am a dachshund lover. I wanted a color combination of purple, green and teal, fun but calming colors. 

The fun thing about these Twist Tie style of stamps and dies, is that they lock together. The directions on the back of the package are easy to follow and give you the measurements to create your own tryfold card base. Art Impressions does carry tryfold bases but I found it simple to create my own. 

Stamping and Die Cutting
Stamps and dies: Art Impressions Dog Twist Ties
Ink: Gina K Amalgam Obsidian Black
Card Stock: Neenah Solar White 110lb
Coloring: Copic Markers 

Following the directions on the back of the packaging I scored a 9 1/2'' x 5 1/2'' card base at the 2 3/4'' and 7'' marks. The flaps are where you will stamp the weiner dog stamps. Each one has a little L on the bottom corners that you don't ink up but align that with the corner of your panels. 

After stamping each dog on their panels, I used the coordinating dies and sent them through my die cutting machine. Now That I have everything cut and stamped, I can start coloring. I colored one of the dogs black and tan like my little weiner dog Sobe and the other in brownish reds. Copics colors listed below.

The rest of the card
Stamps: Art Impressions Doggy Kisses Set (Paw Print, inside sentiment) Dog Twist Ties (sentiment)
Dies: Art Impressions Rectangle Double Stitch die
Distress Oxide Inks:  Lucky Clover, Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers
Ink: Versafine Clair Nocturne 

Using a small acrylic block I stamped the paw print in two different colors all over the front of this card. The paw print is from a different Art Impressions stamps set. I also used one of the sentiments from that set on the inside. First though, I used a Distress Oxide ink to ink blend the inside and stamped the sentiment from the Dog  Twist Ties. 

The second sentiment on the inside is stamped on a small rectangle die cut. My way of covering up my very crooked first attempt at stamping that sentiment. lol. 

Copic Markers
