Memory Box Bouquet Blooms and Leaves and Butterfly Coterie Collage Card…

Hi and hugs to everyone today!  Memory Box has lots of NEW flower dies and word dies too! I love how this hugs snugged up into the card design!

I started with an A2 cardbase in extra heavyweight kraft cardstock.  Next I die cut the NEW Butterfly Coterie Collage die in a white panel I cut a half inch smaller than A2 width and height.

Then I die cut the Bouquet Blooms and Leaves NEW dies in Canson XL watercolor paper and colored them with Distress reinkers.  I sprayed water on the cuts and then brushed on some of the refill and let it spread, added more until I was happy-ish.  I kinda like the brightness of the colors against the white and kraft!

I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac reinkers.

I die cut the NEW Hugs Daily Script dies in white cardstock and the New Memory Box Black Glossy Heavyweight cardstock.  I really like this glossy black.  I think I say that every post these days! lol

I tied on the jute before I adhered it with thin mounting tape to the kraft cardbase.

There is a stencil that you can buy separately that coordinates with this Butterfly Coterie Collage.  I’m thinking…what to make with them together!

Memory Box NEW RELEASE!!!

Hi everyone!  Have you tried Hot Foil plates yet?  I didn’t think I would but Memory Box has come out with a bunch!  So here I am, jumping in with both feet!  It’s really easy and look how beautiful the NEW Posh Happy Birthday Hot Foil Plate and Cutting Die set is in gold on Memory Box Glossy Black heavyweight cardstock!  WOW!

So I created a card with three other NEW dies, Sweet Poppy Stem, Ruffled Poppy Stem, Graceful Poppy Stems and Memory Box 6×6 cardstock paper pads.

This card came together easily!  The flower parts fit together so well… I just followed the picture on the front of the envelope/packaging.  I did mount them with really thin foam mounting tape.

The shine is so pretty in real life and not quite this gold in color.  I should’ve been thinking while snapping pictures to make sure I captured that but alas, I didn’t! ugh.

I used the Memory Box Stylish Rectangle Trio, the largest size die, to frame these beauties!

Have fun checking out the new release and if you ever have any questions about size or want a picture of a die, just holler at me!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  More to come!

Hi everyone! I LOVE cute!  I don’t make it near as much as I used to but I still love cute and coloring! 

This is the NEW Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up die and MFT Birdie Brown Sittin’ Pretty stamp and die set.

This fits in an A2 size envelope.  If you used taller images, you’d need to use a larger or square envelope.

poppystamps and Memory Box Flower Field Card…


Hi everyone!  Thinking ahead a little for some Mother’s Day inspiration.  I had fun ink blending a piece of bristol card and die cutting it with poppystamps Flower Field and Potpourri Flower dies!

I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink pads and TE Ink Blending Brushes.

The light really catches the gems and sparkles so beautifully!

I used the NEW poppystamps Flower Field Frame die to emboss a design on a white cardstock panel.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Flower Field Tall Curve Border die from the ink blended card two times and three of the flowers from the NEW Potpourri Flower Set from the leftover scraps of the ink blended card.

I die cut MOM from the Memory Box Wooden Alpha die set.

I trimmed the white panel down and layered it with thin mounting tape to a white A2 cardbase.

I adhered all the die cuts with Tombow mono multi glue and added a white heat embossed sentiment from poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp set with mounting tape.

Memory Box Fairy Jewels in Pastel added for the flower centers.  I love how it turned out!

Thank you for stopping by! May is coming for us in the midwest and there won’t be a shortage of flowers!

Birch Press Design Flower Cards…

A couple cards to share with you this week…unusual colors for me! Not sure but posting them anyway!  lol

Light pink and bright green!  Do they work?

I really like this plaid paper from the Memory Box Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.

The flowers on this card are from the NEW Birch Press Design Eucalyptus Stem and Berries Contour Layers die set and the Tiny Tuft Flowers and LEaves Contour Layers die set.

Sentiment is Memory Box Just a Note Posh Script die cut in the NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and white cardstock.

Here I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink cardstock and Bazzill Card Shoppe Easter Grass cardstock.

The flower and leaf in the corner are the NEW Birch Press Design Pimpernel Contour Layers die set.

I decided to use the NEW Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Frame die with it because the leaves are similar and I love this die anyway!  It’s so pretty!

The sentiment is from poppystamps Colorful Life stamp set and stamped with Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink ink in the MISTI. It’s very subtle but I kinda like that for a change.

The berries are a bit bluer in real life…pretty sure it’s Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock and the flowers are Taylored Expressions Candy Corn cardstock.

Just a Note is a Mini Slimline card and the Wishing You strength card is an A2 size card. Both will mail for one forever postage stamp in the USA.

Thank you for coming to visit today!  More new stuff coming and I have some cute to share soon too!

Have a good cardmaking week or organizing week… I’ve been doing that too!  I went on a shopping spree!  oops!  If you ever get the chance to go to Cedar Rapids, IA, be sure to go to Scrapmania and tell Stacy, the owner I sent you!  I promise you, you will NOT be sorry you took the time to go there!

poppystamps Potpourri Flower Set Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have a floral duo to share today.  Almost got off the kraft path but notice I managed to bring in some on one card! lol

I die cut a bunch of the NEW poppystamps Potpourri Flower Set dies and played around with different colors and ended up with a lot left over!

I used a stylus and old mouse pad to give the flower petals some poof and then added an enamel dot in the centers.

I used the NEW Memory Box Daisy Blossom Stem die for the some of the leaves on both.  The pink card has additional leaves from the NEW Memory Box Layered Impatiens die and Memory Box Seed Stems die.  I added white paint pen to the circles at the end of the stems.

I liked poppystamps Penelope Pinpoint Frame die for the background on the pink card and poppystamps Simple With Sympathy die for the sentiment.

Here I used poppystamps Lattice Plate die for the background, die cut in white cardstock and poppystamps New Freestyle Hugs die for the sentiment in black and vellum.

I didn’t get the lavender background panel captured very well for color so I tried holding up in the hallway! lol

It’s a pretty color IRL!

Well crazy here!  It snowed yesterday! It didn’t last though. It’s really not unusual as I think back.  One year in April I was headed back to where I grew up and got caught in a blizzard!  It did last! eek!  Not fun driving!

Some place it’s tropical right now! lol  Not here!  Have a beautiful weekend. Looking forward to celebrating and time with family.

Baby Boy Card…

It’s been a long time since I made a baby card!  Years ago I saw a card made up with this turtle die and I kept it for inspiration! 

The turtle is an old Provo Craft die set… the snips and snails and 100% boy is from an older Close To My Heart clear stamp set. 

The pattern paper is old Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper!  Somewhere in the 2003 ish time! eek!   

It makes me smile!  So it was use NEW/OLD stuff last week finally!

One of our granddaughter’s has a Beeswax Candle making business… so I die cut a take out box and added this cute little duckie in with the check/gift. 

This picture was before I was finished, had to make sure it’d fit first! I added ribbon and tissue paper and the check! lol 

Another miracle from God!  A precious baby boy!  ❤

Thanks for stopping by today!  ttul!

Hello Friend! Memory Box NEW Ruffled Blooms and More Card…

Everyone is all about flowers right now!  It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! lol 

I started with an A2 card base, I cut the Hello Friend shadow part of the die directly in the card base. Then cut the shadow in white and the outline in NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock.  Love this stuff!   I very very lightly put a little Tombow Mono Multi glue on the top, bottom and side edges and inlaid it into the cardbase.  When you open the card you can see through and between some of the letters.  I like it!

I die cut the NEW Memory Box dies, Ruffled Blooms and Riverbank Large Layered Blooms, from the Memory Box 6×6 Fresh Aqua cardstock pad.

I die cut the New Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Set dies from the Memory Box 6×6 Lush Green cardstock pad.  The leaves in this die set are a must have!  So beautiful and good with all the flower dies!

I wasn’t quite sure where I was headed with this design but I love these colors and I’m really happy with how it turned out!  I will need to use an A6 envelope for presentation though because I left some petals and leaves over the edge a bit.

Pretty simple and all die cuts again! 

Whimsical and you know I always love kraft!  The cardstock I use for kraft cardbases is from Hobby Lobby… their Extra Heavyweight cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a good rest of the week and a lovely Spring weekend!  Spring in Iowa means rain. (how come there’s not a let it rain sentiment like let it snow?! haha) So stay dry if you can! ha

Memory Box NEW Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch Card…

Hello friends!  So thankful for all my cardmaker friends everywhere! You make me smile a lot!

Simple card today….I die cut this new Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch die from watercolor paper and colored with the new Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  They are so pretty!

I used three arches for this card, three of the medium size flower and three of the small size flower.

I used watercolor paper for the A2 size panel that I inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool. I stamped a couple sentiments around with the same ink from the NEW Memory Box Friends and Family stamp set. The center sentiment is stamped with Ranger Black Archival ink.

I used liquid glue to attach the three arches together and just on the circle to glue to the panel.  Then the flowers are glued just in the center to the wreath so I could ‘fluff’ the petals and leaves.

I added Memory Box small clear Fairy Drops, some Mayarts twine and glued the panel to a kraft color cardbase.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Holler if you have any questions!

Birch Press Design Flora Plate and Make a Wish Cards…

Hi everyone!  Yikes, it’s Thursday already!  I almost didn’t buy this NEW Saltwater Taffy ink color!  I caved and bought regular, regular refill and oxide.  Sometimes I think I need the sprays but maybe I could make a spray with the refill if I needed to make a mess! haha

I used the ink pad to color my cardstock.  Hammermill Color Copy Smooth 100# Cover is what I used for all the parts of this card. I use it some for copic coloring too.

I inked up two A2 panels, one with Saltwater Taffy and one with Abandoned Coral regular distress and blending brushes and or tools.  Then I did three smaller pieces with  Saltwater Taffy, Abandoned Coral and Bundled Sage.  You can pretty much tell what I die cut with what from my pictures.

I die cut the leaves in the same white from the NEW Memory Box Layered Impatiens die set and inked them up also.  I love these leaves!

The flowers were the waste from cutting layer A, they were white so I inked them too.

It’s a really pretty, feminine color and card in real life! I had to add some pinkish Memory Box Fairy Jewels to the flower centers. 

I made this next card first to get a feel of how the layers looked together.  I hadn’t planned on finishing it at first because, weird colors! lol  Not Spring at all but I like it so I’m gonna throw one picture of it on here! lol 

This is the Flora Plate layers AB and C again with a sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  This is such a gorgeous set!  I love it for front and inside sentiments. 

Holler if you have any questions!  Both cards are A2 size.

poppystamps Potpourri Flower, Freestyle Smile, Whittle Snail Card…

You’ve got mail!  It’s always so fun to get mail! Here’s mail and a smile from this cute blushing snail! lol 

I die cut the NEW Potpourri Flower Set in white and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I didn’t look at any pictures for coloring…flying by the seat of my pants again! haha

I layered the NEW ps Penelope Pinpoint Frame on top of Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue cardstock A2 size panel.  Then I adhered those two, to a purple from the Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad. 

First I laid the flowers out down the left side of the panel from the top.  Took a picture of them with my phone and put the snail down to see how it looked, it was too close to the right side of the card!  I didn’t like it there!  So I picked the flowers up with a piece of press and seal and reversed them to the right side bottom corner instead.  Much better! 

Then I die cut the NEW ps Freestyle Smile all in white, it was ok, so I die cut the top in black, too bold, so I die cut it in purple, nah, so I die cut it in yellow and that was it!  I’m a terrible decision maker! lol 

The sentiment is from ps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set.  Stamped in the MISTI with versamark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I glued the flowers down, then the snail and sentiments with mounting tape.  Then I pulled up a couple of the flowers to put one on her head and one right close to the body. 

I added yellow Fairy Gems last. 

I forgot to talk about the snail!  It’s die cut in kraft cardstock and edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.  I went over the mouth, eyes and added eyelashes with a micro black fine point pen. 

It’s a bright card and more fun in real life.  I like it!  That’s saying a lot of me cuz I don’t love yellow and purple! lol

It’s a rainy, dreary day here so we need bright!  Have a good one anyway!  ttul!

Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Slimline Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends…I’m so glad I can grow flowers with paper!  I had fun die cutting and layering these together. There are marks on the cuts so you know where to put the layers!  WOW!  That helps so much!  I use Tombow Mono Multi glue.  My tip for using it is to keep the container laying down at all times.  Do you have any tips to share for gluing?  I’d love to hear them!

I cut a cardbase, 7 x 8 ½ inches and scored the 7 in side at 3 ½ inches for this Slimline Card.

I die cut a white cardstock panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim die set.

Hello is diecut in the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock with the Birch Press Design Hello Topper die.  I didn’t use the backer that comes with it but I need to, it’s cool!

The NEW Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Contour Layers I die cut with four of the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads.  I was brave with color today! lol

I also used the NEW Birch Press Design Tiny Tuft Flowers and Leaves Contour Layers die set.  Die cut in the same cardstock colors.

I used mounting tape behind the roses and everything else is glued directly to the panel.

My pictures feel huge but I sized them 200 pix smaller than I usually do. eek! lol  I hope they show up on your screen ok! The first four are the same size as the card when I hold the card up to my computer screen. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this touch of Spring!  It’s supposed to get up to 70˚ here today!  YAY!  ttul!

Impression Obsession Chicken Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  Just ‘chick’en in on the blog scene! We celebrated middle daughter’s birthday last week… her current flock of new chickens is white!  Her first flock was a variety.

The sentiment on the front and the one on the inside are from Printworks Collection.

This super cute hen and chick are from Impression Obsession and designed by Anna Wight. I cut them in natural white linen cardstock and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool. The red and oranges pieces are scraps of cardstock.

I was digging through 6×6 pattern paper pads with our granddaughter Anya and saw this old Cosmo Cricket pad called Early Bird and went with it!  So cute!

A couple stitched rectangle die cuts and everything adhered and it was done!  Only took me 15 minutes to decide what color button to use! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by!  ttul!

Memory Box Enchanting Poppy Stems Card…

Hello!  I had the urge to make more of a pastel card yesterday but I also wanted to use the Nested Globes die set and make a shape card.

Well, a long the way, it ended up that the shape, cut to have a fold at the top, from white cardstock that opens to reveal the message inside. Then I decided to mount it on an A2 Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die cut from one of the lightest greens in the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Fun for a change! I stamped the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  It’s a gorgeous stamp set! I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide for this in the MISTI, inked and stamped 3 or 4 times.

I used the smallest Nested Globes die to stamp ‘Hello’ on. The HELLO stamp is from the Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath stamp set.

I die cut the Memory Box NEW Enchanting Poppy Stems from a white cardstock that has a little bit of texture.  Then I inked the pieces with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for the leaves and stems.  I inked the poppies with Altenew Cotton Candy Ink and then a little bit of Taylored Expressions Lavender Glaze ink.  It’s tricky getting the right pink to match the plaid paper.   I hope I got close! lol

I added a video directly from my phone, I wish they let me change the size but this is all I get for my money!

I die cut the plaid from the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad and edged the cut with the same Shabby Shutters Distress ink.  Regular Distress ink.

Basically a very non traditional poppy!  I will have to do a red one next time!

Last week I posted the poppystamps Grand Whittle Pig card and after I got to thinking it’d make a cute shape card to be used on a gift!  So here’s a quick snapshot of how that turned out when I tried it.  Cute! oink!

Sure you could ‘doll’ it up too!  How about a red bandana at the neck! lol

Another quick video…

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a Birthday card!
