Memory Box – Hello Spring…


Spring is around the corner!  Yesterday we stopped at my mother-in-law’s and sure enough, her daffodils are coming up!

I started this step card with the Orchard Tree Frame die.  I cut it three times and layered/glued them together.  If you get a little glue where you don’t want it,  I linked below to the adhesive pick up I use… it’s the best one, in my opinion!  The background piece is Memory Box Morroccan Bluebird card-stock,  I ran it through the big shot with the frame die but I didn’t shim it, that way it didn’t cut clear through. The pieces that did cut completely I pieced them back in.  The next layer up was cut in black and the top layer in white.  The white layer I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.


I used the Summer Border die for the bottom.  I cut it out of Memory Box color card-stock and pieced it together.  I cut two green pieces, cutting the flowers and stems completely off of one.  Then I sanded them, just a touch!


I LOVE the Parker lower case alphabet!  I die cut it in white and mounted the words ‘hello spring’ with thin mounting squares that I cut into strips.  I used Poppystamps Picket Fence die and Memory Box Puffy Clouds, Set of Swings, Lavish Branch and Vintage Bicycle dies. I cut the swing out of white card-stock and colored it with Copics to look like rope and a tire.


Step cards are easy to make and so fun to create a scene with!    There’s a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, HERE.

  6. Wow girl, you are so creative, this card is fabulous! I think I could just sit and watch you work all day, wish we lived close by. You’re so precise even down to coloring the rope–thought you used twine. While looking at your recipe, I noticed the Memory Box Metal Adapter Plate. I have one of their trees that just won’t cut out entirely. Maybe I need that plate? Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. You’re such an inspiration and a bad enabler, hee hee–I just bought my MS siver bell punch today 😉 Have a great Sunday! Hugs!
