Memory Box Floral Bloom Oval Frame Twofer!

Welcome to my blog today! So happy with this color combo for this Spring, sure to cheer you colors, card today.

I ink blended regular Distress inks with the mini ink blending tools using Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio on Hobby Lobby Masterstouch watercolor cardstock.

I seem to be using the mini pads the most these days and I put the ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with water and spattered the card with the same four colors.

I made the white enamel dots with Nuvo drops…and added a Memory Box butterfly.  I changed out the cap on my white and black Nuvo drops to the Darice Ultrafine tips that I link to below and use for the PVA glue also.  Work much better for me.

I die cut the Memory Box Floral Bloom Oval Frame die twice, gluing them together cuz I just like them that thick sometimes!

Linking my first card to the following challenges…

Simons Says Stamp – Easter inspired

Bastel-traum – Spring

Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies March challenge

Just Add Ink – inspiration photo

 

 

Next card…because I want to enter the Twofer Card Challenge.  (I didn’t realize I was supposed to photograph the cards together until the post was done, I’ll do better next time! )

 Here I used some of Lawn Fawn’s plaid papers…I know…wild when you mix them up this much!  Kinda unusual for me to put 3 plaids together… it’s much softer looking in person.  Good thing! lol

I adhered the oval to the cardbase with mounting tape.

I left the ‘parts’ in and glued the plaid pieces over the top…it’s almost tulip time… well, another month for Iowa! lol  Maybe I should say it’s always tulip time somewhere!

 Oh, I wanted to try out the new poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames on this card too… I like how it finishes off a card.

The happy birthday sentiment is from the clear set Birthday Sentiments, inked with Lawn Fawn ink in the MISTI stamping too.

Linking my birthday card to some challenges…

  1. Your designs are gorgeous for spring, Pam! Such great creations with the tulip die and all the others, too! I love the splatters and I love the plaid! You have brought tulips to Iowa early at your house!! Thanks so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #3! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Definitely is a gorgeous die, just perfect for spring! And I love both versions that you’ve created! Never thought plaid could look this good with flowers!! What a fantastic display of your talent!! 🙂

  3. Your cards are like a breath of Springtime! Such pretty, happy colors, and that die is fantastic. There’s just something special about tulips, isn’t there?!! Great blending and splatters on your first card, and I love the plaid within plaid design of your second card. Delightful! Thanks for joining us at The Twofer Challenge.

  4. LOVE your ovals takes on our sketch – and what a fun die-cut, too – great way to play with mixing colors and papers – remind me of crocuses! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  5. Dang, I’ve been wanting some of those fine tips but didn’t know where to find them. On the wish list now! As for your cards… I was loving on the watercolor, thinking how pretty it is with the die, and then along came your plaid card and WOW! Two very different looks from one die. You know how I feel about designer paper. Love how you mixed up the plaids — green for the leaves, yellow for the blossoms, and that little bit of blue to suggest some sky in the background. Genius!

  6. Hi Pam, your playing with the die lead two wonderful and so elegant Easter cards. One die and with great ideas and creativity two unique cards!

    Thank you very much for joining us at the bastel-traum Challenge.

    Hugs and good luck

  7. I bought that tulip die when it first came out. Your cards are lovely and an inspiration. They are both very different but oh so pretty for spring. Great job!

  8. Your flower die cut is perfect over your purple and green background, great use of the inspiration pic! Thanks for joining in with our 400th challenge this week at Just Add Ink!

  9. Both of your cards are stunning, Pam! I love the delicate, inky background you’ve created – it shows off your elegant tulip die and the colours of Spring so beautifully. Thanks for joining us for our 400th Challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

  10. What a wonderful tulip die and I love the fantastic way you used it on both of your cards. They are so gorgeous! Thanks for joining in on the Twofer Challenge #3.

  11. Two amazing creations! I totally love all things plaid, so that is my favorite, but both are beautiful. Thanks for the great inspiration!

  12. This is a great die and I love how you got two different looks from one die. Love them both, but was really amazed by the plaid one. The soft color on the first one are just like a new spring day. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday Challenge. Looking forward to seeing you again.
