Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a new Memory Box stamp and die set card to share today… just because.  Isn’t that a pretty script?  It’s hard to believe it’s Memorial Day weekend.  It looks like it’ll warm up here but still cloudy.  We’re getting anxious for some sunshine!  I guess the sunshine today is this bright Picked Raspberry Distress Ink color that I painted with!

I stamped the new wreath on watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. I die cut with the coordinating die, then I watercolored with regular Distress Ink pad refills.  I just put a drop of the refill on my craft mat and pick it up with a wet paintbrush.  I did put water on the paper first so it was wet on wet.

I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled paint, Peacock Feathers and a little bit of Mowed Lawn ink refills for coloring the wreath.

I die cut white cardstock twice and used that to layer the wreath for a little depth instead of foam mounting tape.

I used Taylored Expressions Confetti Cake cardstock for the background square adhered to a white top fold cardbase. My card is 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have some peonies in your life.  I’m glad I had these to color!

Here’s what I used…

Simon Says Stamp Luck and Hugs Cards…

Hi everyone!  Simon Says Stamp sent me this stamp set to play with for their newest release ‘Sunny Days Ahead’!  I’m behind but working on catching up! I made two cards to share so be sure to scroll down for the second… 🙂

This set has a ton of images and sentiments! I stamped several in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, die cut them out and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used a landscape A2 size white cardbase and stamped one of the border images directly on the base using the MISTI.

After coloring, using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, I adhered the flowers directly to the cardbase.  HUGS is adhered with foam mounting tape overlapping a little bit of the flowers.

A card to cheer I hope!

Next card will be a congrats graduation card…

I went clean and simple here…you know I love this style! hehe  I stamped and gold heat embossed good luck from the set, then die cut, popped it up with black mounting squares on a Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock A2 size cardbase.  I stamped the little sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed it and layered it over the top with mounting foam on the left end and liquid glue on the right end.

This could work for so many occasions!  Such a fun set…some of the other sentiments… “Can’t wait to see you soar”, “You’re going to be Amazing”, “You’re going to rock this” and so many more!

I used Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder or maybe it’s called super fine.

Thank you so much for clicking over to see my post today!  A new release is coming soon so be watching!

Memory Box Happy Puzzle Letters and poppystamps Whittle Monkey Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  Long card today…3 ⅞ x 9…will fit in a #10 business size envelope.  These monkeys make me think… you too?  Monkeys jumping on the bed! haha

Happy Monkeys!  I used the Happy Puzzle Letters from the next to the last release from MB.  So cute with this poppystamps Whittle Monkey…the stitched detail makes it so easy to create a CAS card with.

I die cut the Happy die in five colors of Taylored Expressions cardstock and used all the letters by mixing them up and adding white gel pen dots.  I die cut five monkeys from TE Toffee cardstock, added a white gel pen dot on their cheeks, then mounted them with foam mounting tape to the card after I glued the Happys on the card front.

I wasn’t picky about what colors I used…a great way to use scraps! A cheerful, fun card!  On the inside I stamped ‘birthday’.  I forgot to take a picture of it but I’ll link the stamp set the birthday stamp came from below.

This will go to one of our grandkids I’m sure… thank you for stopping by today!

Waffleflower Tumble On Spinner Card…

Today I’m sharing one of the birthday cards I made for our oldest granddaughter Atalyssa, aka Attie.  She is an amazing gymnast so I had to use this new at the time Tumble on set from Waffleflower.  Sooo fun!

This party was for five of our grandkids and Lizzie, who’s birthday is the day before Attie’s planned a Masquerade party.  It was so much crazy fun!  😀

Here’s Attie making her card spin…

Fortunately she was able to get a few competitions in this year and we’re so proud of her!  All around 2nd place at this one.  YAY Attie! (she’s the girl that looks like she’s behind the number one block)

Here’s the card sliding by itself.  There was a gal on Instagram that shared her card for Waffleflower and I basically copied her.

I stamped, die cut, colored and paper pieced her leo with black glitter cardstock.

I gave her a wood floor and brick wall because of the gym she goes to.

Thanks for stopping by to see this cutie in action!

Memory Box Small Cosmos and Jovial Wreath CAS Card…

Hi everyone!  A clean and simple card to share with you today with a wish for you to enjoy your day!

I almost got away with a completely die cut card. There is something about stamping a sentiment simply in black though! ❤

I die cut three of the Jovial Wreath in TE Granny Smith cardstock and glued them together with Tombow Mono Multi glue.  I die cut two of the Small Cosmos, popped the pieces out of the top one but left them in the bottom one and added just a touch of coloring!  I only glued them together around the very center and then glued the flower to the wreath and the wreath to the die cut in TE Confetti Cake and sentiment stamped panel using one of the sentiments from the Birthday Blowout stamp set.

I used mounting tape to adhere the panel to the A2 TE Toffee cardbase.  I make my cardbases top folding because it’s easier to take pictures of them. Book fold cards are so nice and traditional though.  I miss that sometimes!  😀

I imagine a lot of you already have flowers in your yards.  Our temps are still too low in Iowa but it won’t be long!  In the meantime, I’ll enjoy my day and my paper flowers!

I don’t have any of the new Memory Box/poppystamps release but Cindy @starlitstudio.net has all the NEW stuff and is shipping like normal!  YAY!  Simon Says Stamp has the new also but shipping is slower right now. Links below…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes with Gina K Designs…

Hi everyone!  It’s that time of the week!  This is my last post as a guest for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this month.  Whew, this year is whizzing by!

This week, we’re using Gina K Designs and the theme is ‘anything goes’!

I stamped Gina K Designs Massive Peony Stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I die cut before I colored with the coordinating die.  I also die cut two pieces to glue my colored floral piece to for depth, instead of foam mounting squares or tape.

The background panel is cut 4 x 5.25 inches and randomly stamped with Simon Says Stamp Damask Background stamp and Antique Linen Distress Ink.   I was going for a vintage look.

The sentiment is from the same floral set, heat embossed with Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder on vellum, trimmed and wrapped around the damask stamped background panel.

I adhered to an A2 size metallic gold panel and then to an A2 size cardbase.

I hope you’ll be able to join us and link up your creation for this week’s challenge ‘anything goes’!  We’d love to see Gina K but you can use anything. 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this weeks prompt and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of the challenge blog post!

Memory Box Single Daisy Stem Card…

Happy Friday everyone! A CAS die cut card to share today.  Our area stamp club meets this afternoon and I have the program.  This is one of the two cards I’ll have them make.

The Single Stem Daisy comes with a backer die for the flower.  I die cut it in TE Lollipop cardstock, put the cut into the full flower die and embossed it with a stylus.

Then I inked the flower head with TE Strawberry Milkshake ink and a little make up brush.

I die cut the complete flower in TE Granny Smith cardstock and inked it with TE Granny Smith ink and a little make up brush.

I glued the layers together. You might want to clip off some of the green flower bottom layer if it shows.

I popped up the flower head with mounting foam tape just in the center.

I stamped the panel with a sentiment from a poppystamps sentiment set, links below.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink on the background panel.  Some jute and it’s done…A2 size!

I changed the wrap up this time and wrapped an A2 size stitched panel die cut in TE Toffee cardstock. Then I just made the bow separate and glued it on the stem.  I used mounting tape to adhere the white panel to the Toffee panel because of the jute.  I didn’t want a hump!  😀

Thanks for stopping by today!  I love the message on this card…a good thing to remember everyday!  ❤
