Memory Box Elegant Succulent Sentiments Card…

Hi everyone! This is a new stamp set from Memory Box with gorgeous succulent floral images and beautiful sentiments that are actually ones you would use!  ‘best wishes on your special day’, ‘wishing you the happiest birthday’, ‘just a little note to let you know I am thinking about you’, ‘when times are difficult let hope sustain you’ and the one I used on my card.

I did some distress ink smooshing with a piece of scrap acetate.  I like that it’s a little easier to control doing it this way.  Acetate to watercolor paper instead of laying the watercolor paper flat on the inky craft mat. I used Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers and Forest Moss regular Distress Ink pads.

I stamped the succulent bouquet with Ranger Archival ink onto the dried inked watercolor paper.  I used a stamp platform so I could ink it a few times.

Then I die cut it out with the coordinating die.

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold powder on TE Oreo cardstock and cut around it with a scissors.

There is another new sentiment and die set from Memory Box that does have coordinating dies. You can see it HERE.

I glued the negative piece to a piece of TE Oreo cardstock, then using mounting tape I fit the die cut back in the space.

I mounted to another piece of TE Poblano Pepper cardstock….I know it’s dark here, hard to tell but it’s there! hehe

To add a little glam, I added some Memory Box Fairy Jewels!

I really like how it turned out. That’s what keeps us making, right?!  When we like something!  I’m working on birthday cards for boys… Corrin turned 12 on the 7th,  Cedryk turned 9 on the 18th and Henry is 15 TODAY!!!  How in the world!  These kids just keep getting older!   I love ’em!  For a mom of girls to have 11 grandsons, it’s pretty amazing! lol  6 granddaughters too!

  1. Love how you did the smooching the card looks great. Sun is out today maybe it will dry thing out we have had so much rain this month it’s all or nothing. Not much rain in May and June and everything in July I wish I could send it to all the places that are fighting wildfires. Don’t the grandkids grow so fast.

  2. Oh your smooshing is fabulous! Those colors are so pretty and the way you die cut it and added it back to the same piece looks really neat! Fun card!!
