Memory Box Pumpkin Card…

After making the stamp video the other day, I was in the mood to stamp and color this new pumpkin!  No great technique or anything… just stamping on MB watercolor card, coloring with Distress Ink Refills (I need to clean off my desk and get out a different coloring medium, lol).  I enjoy how the Distress ink refills work for watercolor though and the colors are so nice for this time of year!

I think this pumpkin would make a great shape card or place cards or what else?

For the cardbase, I used TE Sweet Basil cardstock and stamped poppystamps Picnic Plaid stamp on it with TE Sweet Basil Ink.

I didn’t want Halloween words so I used Grateful for our friendship from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set.

This stamp set with the pumpkin has great words for the banner though.

This turned out an odd size but it will still fit in an A6 envelope for a regular forever stamp!  YAY!

Thanks for clicking over!  We so appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for our family.  Breanna is making progress.  We’re so happy and so grateful! ❤

Memory Box Sunflower Wreath Card…

Happy Friday! Switcheroo today!  Going country!  Some fun watercoloring with Distress Ink Refills again and Memory Box stamps on watercolor paper. (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo)

This card was easier to photograph so it’s a picture heavy post today. lol

I stamped the Sunflower Wreath stamp on watercolor paper and die cut it with the coordinating die. Then started painting.  I don’t know about you but I never finish in one sitting.  I lost track of how many times I sat and colored on it.  Stretch out the pleasure I guess! lol

I stamped poppystamps Picnic Plaid stamp in blue on white cardstock and inked on gathered twigs distress ink around the outside edges of the panel.

I used 3M mounting tape to adhere the wreath to the picnic plaid panel.

I tied some Lawn Fawn cord around the panel and then adhered the panel to the A2 cardbase with more mounting tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunflower Wreath stamp set with Versamark ink on a piece of Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I love TE Oreo for white embossing on black cardstock!

My mother in law loved sunflowers and had tons of sunflower stuff in her kitchen… this card reminds me of her and her Corelleware Sunflower dishes! ❤

That’s the last picture! I tucked the sentiment under the wreath a little bit with mounting tape on the left side and glue on the right side.

Tim and I spent the evening at one of our daughters, watching the grands pick peaches and play.  The boys showing off for us on the zip line and dirt bike…we almost thought we saw neowise but it was too early and just an airplane reflecting off the sun setting! lol  Lots of smiles and happiness. YAY!

Thanks again for stopping by and your comments! Hope you have some cardmaking time this Summer too.  It’s busy I know, going by fast and almost time for Christmas!  Be watching….the 27th!

Memory Box Clementine Border and Celebrate dies…

Hi everyone! My goal this week was to work with Memory Box’s new Glitter cardstock 6×6 pads. For this card I used the NEW Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad.  (my photos don’t do it justice, taking photos took longer than making the card, ugh)

I die cut the new Clementine Border die in two colors but left all the pieces in the bottom color.  The pieces all stayed in… amazing cardstock! The top color is the same as the card panel and the pieces popped out fine. I just glued it over the top of the bottom darker cut.

The new Celebrate die is cut from the darker of the two also (I just used one cut)… really pretty soft color.


I glued the borders on the sides of an A2 size glitter panel, glued the sentiment to a strip of vellum and wrapped it around the panel and glued it on the back.  Then I adhered the panel to an A2 size cardbase.

This card is ready for any celebratory occasion!  Nice and sparkly!

Thank you for clicking over today! A couple more cards to share this week and then be ready because the Christmas Memory Box and poppystamps release is coming the 27th!  I’m so excited!  You are going to LOVE it!

Lawn Fawn On the Beach Birthday Card….

It’s Friday and somebody’s birthday somewhere! haha  This card was for a grandson that has a hammock in the backyard and loves it!  As close to a beach as you can get in Iowa! lol

Some faux sand and water on this card but the sky is real! We’ve had some beautiful blue skies the last month.   I inked them all with Distress Oxide inks.  I haven’t figured out the trick to doing spatters over oxide inks, to keep the spatters smallish.  I even let the ink dry before I spattered.   The kinda black spots were Hero Arts liquid watercolor paint, I’ll have to try something else for black next time. If you have a good black method, let me know!  Holler if you want to know what colors I used and I”ll try to remember.

So fun… the ‘shades’!

Here’s what I used… shopping links in the right sidebar if you want to look for these products at Scrapbook.com (15% off cardmaking supplies today) or Simon Says Stamp.  Thank you!  I appreciate it!  I have stamp club today and I’m almost ready…I made some card kits for the gals to make up.  It’ll be fun but there went my time! hehe

It feels good to be using some of the stash!  So I challenge you to make a card with your stash before you go shopping!  I have two more birthday cards to show and I’m working on a poppystamps Christmas card!  It’s really turning out cool, if I do say so myself so stay tuned! ttul!

Boy Birthday Card with Lawn Fawn’s Pivot Pop Up Die and Waffleflower Batter Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Back with another boy birthday card!  I saw the idea for this card on a fb group.  I bought a cut file from the Silhouette store for the front.  I cut it on my Scan and Cut machine.

I used a combination of Waffleflower stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiments.  The cute ball players are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

The pivot pop up card mechanism die is from Lawn Fawn.

 

The cloud is the smaller of the Memory Box Marshmallow cloud set.  The hill border from Lawn Fawn.

I’ve always loved silhouettes… so fun to be able to cut my own!

A couple more inside shots and then a video of how it works….

These pattern papers are from my stash.  Oldies but perfect for this, from Lasting Impressions for Paper.

 

 

 

Linking up to the SSS Wednesday Moving Parts Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Summer card!  It was a shame the boys didn’t get to play this year.  I’ll link up what I used below.

Lawn Fawn Fishing Birthday Card…

Happy Summer Monday to you!  Family birthday card show and tell time again!

This one is for a boy that loves to fish and pretty much most things outdoors!  Lawn Fawn stamps and dies except for the cattails… they’re from Hello Bluebird.

I inked the mountains with Espresso oxide ink and barely on the dirt borders.  The pond is die cut from white and inked with Peacock Feathers I think.   The sky is a Rosie’s Roadshow cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.

Here’s what I used…

 

Thanks for stopping by! Keep cool! ha!
