Time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp…. Dream Big!

Hi everyone!  Bringing you everything ‘dreamy’ with this release in Summery July!  Check it all out HERE

I received the Tropical Leaf Bunch die to play with.  It’s from Simon Says Stamp but designed by Memory Box!  I love it when I get the designs by MB!

You deserve a break but I don’t mean at Mc Donalds! lol   I’m not a beach person but I’ve probably not been at the right beach to appreciate it! 

Here I kept it very CAS (clean and simple). 

I die cut a rectangle out of copy paper so I could ink blend an area centerish on the front of my A2 size cardbase.

I blended oxide inks with my blue and brown brushes without putting on more ink because I wanted it very light.

Then I did some splattering with Prize Ribbon and Ground Espresso Distress inks and then a little white acrylic after the ink splatters were dry.

I die cut three of the Tropical Leaf Bunch, glued them together and then directly to the cardbase.

The beach chair is from last months SSS release.  I stamped it and fussy cut it by hand, colored it with Copics and glued it directly to the cardbase. Details about this set in my post HERE

Then I stamped the sentiment from the beach stamp set and added Memory Box Fairy Jewels from the Pastel set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Hope you enjoy the new release and here’s the 

code for $5 off through 8/15…  5BUCKS

Have a great weekend!  Do any of you have an ebike?  We’re going to go looking at them this afternoon.

ttul,

p.s. links to the new products are in bold and the SSS picture in my post!  Thank you for looking/shopping through my links!  I appreciate it!

Winter Garden Release in a Summer Way Card…

Hi everyone!  How fun is this NEW die set called Letterbox from Spellbinders Winter Garden Release!  I made it up in a Winter Scene card too but I think I’ll post it separately because I have so many pictures of this one.

I die cut everything and put them together before I adhered them to a Distress Oxide ink blended A2 size cardbase. I used Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass with a torn piece of copy paper to separate the sky and grass.

I used a NEW die set called Winter Evergreen Foliage behind the Be Bold flowers.

I love these sweet blooms with the mailbox!

The die cut sentiment is from the NEW Mix and Match Holiday Greetings Die set.  I die cut it twice in white cardstock, glued them together and glued them directly to the card.

I used woodgrain cardstock for the post and a matte silver metallic cardstock for the box.

I hope you like this as much as I do!  I’m anxious to show you the Winter version too!  ❤

Sending You Some Vitamin Sea!

Hi everyone! Check out the latest release from Memory Box, ‘June Island Vacation’!  I had fun playing with these products!

I embossed the fish with the NEW Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder, then I used the NEW coordinating Ocean Fish stencil set to color the fish!  It worked great!

I have no idea what colors these fish should be! lol  I used my mug of dye ink blender brushes!  I didn’t add any ink, I just used the ink that was in the brushes and used the green, blue and bluegreen brushes over yellow.  Orange and red together on the other!

The Ocean Fish Folder comes with matching dies, so I die cut the fish after coloring.

For the background piece, I used the Memory Box Underwater 3d embossing folder on white cardstock, then used my Distress Oxide blender brushes to add color.  Again, just the color that was in the brushes.  I guess I was too lazy to get out the ink pads!  Funny girl yesterday! lol

I used mounting tape to mount the fish to the background piece and added some clear Fairy Drops.

The sentiment is heat embossed from the Deep Blue Ocean clear stamp set released last year.  Awesome sentiments and images in this set.  Dies to match too!

I saw Memory Box Dave’s card on the Memory Box website using the Kelp Collage die, also from last year so I used it too!

The last thing I did was add some clear glitter pen to the fish.  I love how it makes it look like shimmery fish!

This will be a fun card to send to someone feeling under the weather.  I love vitamin C anyway… it’s a staple around this house! lol

NEW Memory Box Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Card and a storage tip…

It’s a beautiful day here in south central Iowa! I should’ve been out riding my bike this morning! lol  Do any of you have an e bike? Do you like it?  I’m sure tempted to go look and try one of them.

A clean and simple look to my card today.  I used a champagne colored foil to hot foil the sentiment but it looks black.  Figures.

I  didn’t think to try to catch the light when I was taking pictures but it really is foil! poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil and Cut Die Set.

I used Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles…it’s my go to for cutting panels it seems.  I like it!

I embossed the new 3D folder and die cut the leaves with the included dies, glued them to the white A2 panel except for the top middle leaf, I used the thin mounting tape that I’ll link to below.

I made some pretty little flowers with poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set from the most recent release.  The smallest die cut, cut two times for each flower and layered together and glued in the center directly to the panel.

I used the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers die from the most recent release and made some pretty tropical dragonflies to land on the card!

Straight forward die cutting and gluing…no inking even! BOOM! lol  Two non inked cards in a row!

Tip: The next two pictures are how I decided to store the 3D folders and dies using the packaging that they come in!  I think it’s really slick!

I take the heavyweight clear piece off of the sturdy cardboard backer they come with and cut the top off of the plastic with a scissors so it becomes a slot when you put it back over the cardboard backer and you can slip the folder and the dies in and out of!  No additional plastic sleeve needed for storage! Perfect!

Thank you for stopping by…holler if you have any questions!

poppystamps Grand Whittle Ice Cream Card…

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year when we’re all trying to keep cool! This card makes me smile because Breyers Natural Neapolitan Ice Cream is a favorite around here!

I made this card before I made the flower cards the other day and without even realizing I used strips again! lol   I love how it turned out!

So cute and screams SUMMER!

I’ll link up what I used below…straight forward for the most part.  I made the narrow frame by taping two of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies together.  (I leave them taped together just in case I need to make another before I need them apart!)

I stamped the sentiments then used the sentiment die that comes in the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings set. 

This last shot is a little too pink… I didn’t try to change it but it’s Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake cardstock, I’ll ink below.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!  I can’t believe it’s almost the 4th of July!  I haven’t made a 4th card yet this year but I love making patriotic cards.  I made a card to share next with Memory Box NEW Release.  Then I have a bunch of birthday cards to share so I hope you don’t get tired of me blasting you with blog posts!  😀

Birch Press Design Tropical Hibiscus and Star Flowers Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Working with new products from Birch Press Designs for my two cards today.  I made a card using them the day before I made these but I didn’t like it so I brought out the strip CAS card design again!  I’ve used it before HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Two for one when you cut two colors of cardstock. The flowers are cut from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Lush Green and Fresh Aqua.

I used poppystamps NEW Modest Greetings 2 Foil and Cut Die Set and Silver Foil.

The sentiment on this card is from the Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.

The NEW BPD Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers die set is so pretty with the layered look for the flower and the leaves.  When you die cut it scores the area where you add the layer so you know exactly where to glue the pieces.  Super easy!

The NEW BPD Star Flowers Contour Layers die set and the BPD Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die set (smaller branch) on this card… same as the Hibiscus.  You can see the marks where to place the layers… love that! No guessing or wondering if you got it in the right place.

Both cards are A2 size. The Hibiscus card I used a little bit of thin foam mounting tape, the one I’m linking below.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Make some strip cards!

poppystamps Perfect Posies Bouquet Card…

Hi everyone! Another floral card to share today.  I need to glue pink paper flowers to my three hydrangea bushes!  No flowers on them yet!

I die cut the poppystamps NEW Perfect Posies Bouquet die two times in white.  I inked up one in green distress oxide colors using an ink blending brush and the other I trimmed off some of the flowers to ink up in pink distress oxide colors.

There are a few blooms on this Posies die that match up with the blooms in the NEW poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set, so I used the two smaller sizes of those for pink blooms.

I cut an A2 size panel of white cardstock, die cut it with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate, then embossed it with the Memory Box Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder.  The dots make it look like a bee has been buzzing around! lol

I used a white Posca pen to color the little green blooms white on the green Perfect Posies Bouquet die cut.

Memory Box has come out with a lot of Foil and Cut die sets this time.  This is a new to me technique but I’m getting the hang of it.  I really like how pretty and elegant they make a card sentiment.

For this card I used the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings 1 Foil and Cut die set.  Gold foil on white cardstock.  I love having a die to just cut one sentiment.  I’m not one to make a bunch of stuff ahead.  I just make as I go along to go with what I’m making.  It’d be fun to do a survey and find out how many make a bunch of elements and then sit down and make cards.  I wish I could.  It overwhelms me to have too much to choose from.  Interesting… I bet there’d be a lot of creative ways to go about making cards!

There’s a NEW Memory Box Intricate Mini Butterflies die so I had to add one to my card.  I die cut it in white and inked it with Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide ink.

I added some Fairy Drops and it was done.  YAY!  It’s kinda vintagey looking in a modern way!

I can’t believe it’s Friday already!  Hope you’re getting some Summer things done…eek!  It’s time I did! lol

Simon Says Stamp Let’s Chill Release…

Welcome to my blog today…feel the sand between your toes!  Some of you can I bet!  I’m feeling the chill but it’s in the house! lol

I have the opportunity today to post for Simon Says Stamp Let’s Chill Release using the new ‘Let’s Get Away’ clear stamp set. Lots of great stuff in this release!  It’s always fun to make Summer scenes so I stamped them up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers.

Then I made my background by stamping the wave lines stamp with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink, ink blending it above the waves and painting it in between the waves of the stamped image.  I smeared some of the splatters so I had to go in with a damp paint brush to fix them. ugh.

I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink pads and ink blending brushes for the beach below the waves.

I made the drink into lemonade, personalized to me!

Fun stamp set with several fun sentiments!

Take a look at the rest of the release HERE and thanks again for stopping by!  I appreciate it and hope it helps you stay cool!

Spellbinders 20th Birthday Celebration and SALE!

Hi everyone! Time to celebrate another birthday!  It’s hard to believe Spellbinders has been around 20 years!  I can remember when they first started in the papercrafting business! Remember the Wizard?  We’ve come a long way! lol

I had the opportunity to post for them today and you know I’m always up for an interactive die design! 

I’m showing my take on the Pick Your Greeting Slider Die set, the Slider Bar Accents die set and the Complimentary Slider Greetings stamp set. They’re all a part of the Birthday Celebrations Collection.

As you pull the tab, the arrow moves up and down the sentiments…

So cute! I think this would be super fun with stickers also for a quick and easy card…last minute…although just die cutting is fast too.

Just looking at these pictures makes me want cake! haha

I put a little white pigment ink on the die and pressed the die cut back in the die to get the letters ‘PULL’ to show up more.

I die cut the white tab frame in white cardstock and used mounting tape strips on three sides and small pieces on the top for the stopper.

On the inside it’s very clean and simple but a GREAT BIRTHDAY message!

And back to the top!  I love easy to make interactive cards.  Super cute sets… check them out at the links below! If you’re like me, you always need more birthday cards! Enjoy the celebration!

p.s. I added a reel with another slider made with stickers on Instagram… go see it HERE and turn up your volume!  ❤

Memory Box Charlotte Blooms and More…

Are you a fan of lime?  This is one of the sheets from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad!  It turned out fun!

Love this sentiment set from Poppystamps too! I stamped it directly on the panel, then on white and cut out the banner and mounted it over the stamped banner. Say It Big is the stamp set and it has coordinating dies too!  Love that!

For this card I die cut the NEW Memory Box Charlotte Blooms dies in white cardstock and with the mini ink blending tool, colored the centers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I die cut the Leaves from the Charlotte set in the same green as the background.

I glued the flowers and leaves directly to the green card panel.  The only thing popped up a bit is the banner.

This is an A6 size card.

The first card I made using the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die set is the one below…I die cut in the yellows from the Memory Box 6×6 Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  The flower centers from the Earth Neutral pad. The leaves from the Lush Green pad.

For the butterfly I used the Memory Box Gloriosa Butterly Duo Outlines die, the smaller one from the set and the underneath butterfly is the NEW Memory Box Ava Butterflies die, die cut from the Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  Fun!  It you use Ava on it’s own, you can fluff up the sections I think.  I still have to try it. lol

I wanted to tie in the foiled New Memory Box Posh Birthday Wishes hot foil and die set so I used the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die cut in Woodsy Plaid 6×6 pad and NEW Polished Foil 6×6 pad.

Kraft cardbase and A2 size.

Birch Press Design Prime Peony Duo Contour Layers Card…

Hi everyone!  This week has zoomed by me! But it’s Peony time of year and a perfect time to showcase this beautiful new die from Birch Press Design.

I watercolored these blooms with the newest set of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens Set A. Die Cut with Strathmore watercolor Brown pad.

Then I added a frame from the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die set.

I ink blended an A2 size panel of Strathmore Best Mixed Media cardstock (the brown pad).  Wow it blends nice.  I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the first time! and Peacock Feathers. I still use the mini round ink blending foams a lot and that’s what I used here.

Hugs is a new hot foil plate and die set from Birch Press Design also.  Hugs Sugar Script is the name of it.

I used silver hot foil and Bazzill Card Shoppe Robin’s Egg for Hugs.

I glued everything flat except for hugs.  It has thin mounting tape on the ends. Starlitstudio has it in stock!  I’ll link below!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it and hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather has been amazing here this week! YAY!

Simon Says Stamp Arched Greens and SALE!

Back again today with a NEW stamp from the latest Simon Says Stamp release

I received the rubber stamp Arched Greens to create with.  The center Arch section is removable!

I stamped it all in the MISTI on Canson XL watercolor paper with regular Distress inks.  I inked up the stamp and spritzed it and stamped it.  I used two different greens and the new prize ribbon blue.

It needed some flowers so I got out the NEW Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers die set.  I die cut in the same watercolor paper and smooshed the cuts into Worn Lipstick Distress Ink that I’d spritzed with water.

I die cut the center out with the Memory Box Nested Globes die… it was a little short so I had to use the mat to keep it from cutting the bottom straight line, then readjust the die to lengthen the cut. SSS does have a die set that coordinates with this stamp!

The sentiment is a new poppystamps hot foil plate and die set with several sentiments.  I’ll link it below too.

poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set Easel Card…

Hi everyone! I haven’t purchased my red geraniums yet!  I need to get shopping!  Today’s card I brought out the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set to plant my flowers in!

I die cut and edged all my pieces with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I love this NEW poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set! I used an old mouse pad and stylus to do a little flower shaping also.

Here’s a close up of the HELLO from the NEW poppystamps Birthday Wishes Poe Script Hot Foil Plate and Dies set.

I used Gold Hot Foil but I didn’t get a great picture that shows the goldness! lol

I backed the basket and used a strip on the base of a plaid from the Memory Box Woodsy Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

Memory Box Fairy Dewdrops for the flower centers…

Showing how it fits in an envelope.  I will use an A6 size when I mail this.  My flower is up to high for an A2.

It didn’t want to lay completely flat without me holding it down, but it does go completely flat.

I put the flowers together like they’re shown on the front of the package.  I put the easel card together just like it shows on the back of the package!  That helps so much to have pictures!

Everything is super green here!  I have ferns for the front porch, now I just need a couple red baskets for the back porch.  Let the watering begin!

Do any of you have Boston Ferns?  How do you water them?  Mine are always so full, it’s hard to get water to go in from the top, so I fill up a pail of water, take the fern down and sit the pot in the pail of water and let it soak up.  I’ve had really good luck with that in the past but I wonder if there’s a faster way?!

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll talk to you later!

Hi everyone! Have you had time to look at the NEW Memory Box release and see the NEW Hot Foil Plate and Cutting Die sets?  Today I used the NEW Posh Thank You set and I love it on the Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock!

I started with a mini slimline panel.  Then I was thinking backgrounds…I love Memory Box Collage dies and I grabbed the Jumbled Line Collage and found all the positive pieces from cutting a few times in the envelope!  YAY! Make my own tile/brick looking wall to show off the lavender!

I ran a couple stripes of ATG adhesive down the panel and just started placing the strips…they’re very random lengths.  I didn’t go by anything, just picked up and stuck them on.

I die cut the lavender in lilac and green cardstocks, trimmed off the stems from the lilac ones and glued the top to the green.

I glued the stems directly over the strips, then glued the thank you directly over the stems.  No mounting tape was used on this one!

The panel is glued directly on the mini slimline cardbase too!

Easy to make, easy to mail!  yay!

Thank you for stopping by!  Curious what your favorite new dies are from this release?!

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!
