Stampendous Build a Bouquet Card and SALES!!!

Such fun! I can only hope that one day our 3 Hydrangea bushes that we planted last year will give me a jar full! lol  I see green coming up though, so there’s hope!

I had fun playing with this stamp and coordinating die set from Stampendous.

Inking/daubing directly on the stamp with Distress Stains in the MISTI, like I’ve seen others doing, pull the color around with a waterbrush and paint in some details with the same waterbrush. No two alike!  ***Just discovered this though while making the links for what I used.  Distress Stains aren’t available anymore…they are in spray form now.  So I linked to some dauber bottles to put the Distress Sprays in.  Sorry about this but easy fix!

I stamped the jar in Ranger Archival black ink….my go to black for everything other than Copic coloring right now.

I stamped the plaid background with a Concord and 9th set using coordinating Distress Oxide ink pads.  That was fun…a gal could make plaid all day! lol

I decided the jar needed to sit on something…so those ovals…they come in so handy for that!

I think I need to try some other techniques with this set too… so many flowers and even a butterfly in the set and another vase! Even a pop-up with the Stampendous pop up die!

It’s a flower time of year for sure!  YAY!

AND it’s SALE time!  Check these out! Copics on sale at Simon Says Stamp!

 

AND at Scrapbook.com it’s an EXTRA 10% off everything!  Coupon expires Sunday, May 6th at midnight, PST.  They have these stamps and dies!

Memory Box, poppystamps, Hero Arts and Concord & 9th Valentine cards…

Hi everyone! Yikes…going from one card in a post to 7…I’m crazy!  Valentine crazy that is! haha This first card is a Clean and Simple (CAS) Valentine, made with Hero Arts Floral Heart Stamp and Cut set.

Links to everything will all be at the bottom of this post.  😀

Another CAS card using the new die set from Memory Box called Distressed Heart Collage.  The sentiment is from poppystamps Valentine Fairies stamp set.

This is one of my ‘how many dies can you get on a card’ card! hehe

Memory Box, poppystamps and that stripe heart is from Concord and 9th.

This one and the one below are from the Concord and 9th die set called Layers of Love…Black Nuvo drops on one and baby pearls on the other.

Sentiment is from poppystamps Valentine Fairies set again.

Here I’ve mixed Memory Box and poppystamps dies with Photoplay ‘So Loved’ paper collection/stickers.  See the dots around the heart above?  That’s the MB Pinpoint Heart die.

I used a heart embossing folder on this one.

Concord & 9th Ornamental Card and Stamplorations A Child is Born Card…

Hi cardmakers! I’m making more cards then I’m getting blogged so I need to step up my act!

This card is using Concord & 9th’s Ornamental die set… I love the detail in the cuts and that the pieces can be used individually!   First I had to use it all in one! lol (Pattern paper is My Minds Eye, Comfort and Joy, Evergreen and Holly, from last yer)

Very straight forward card and flat for mailing. If you don’t want to mail for square card postage (2 oz. stamp) use one of those gold 6×9 envelopes for one forever postage stamp!

For a few years when I colored all the time, all my cards were square… I got creative with mailing. hehe

Another, yes I can mail this CAS card.  Stamping and die cutting all in one card! lol

I stamped with a Hero Arts Ombre stamp pad in the MISTI so I could ink it a couple times.

Then I die cut the stamped panel with a nativity die and used thin ¾ in. mounting tape that I cut pieces to fit behind the die cut.

I love this look…hoping to find some more stamps and dies to try it with.

Thanks for stopping by today! Click over to Instagram if you want to see one of our new trains! hehe  Link over in the sidebar too.  Grandson Henry emailed me last night and said, make a video and send it to my mom so she can see how fast it goes! So  shared it on IG too. We’ve had trains before but they wear out! Two out of three worn out so we replaced two this year. Kind of memory trains…my Dad worked for the Chicago Northwestern RR, so both of these new ones are CNW trains.  I was so excited to find them and share a little about my Dad with our grands. 😀

Links to what I used to make these two cards!
