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!

Hello! I have a Simon Says Stamp card to share with you using the NEW from the HAPPY AND JOYFUL release, A2 Marquee Die!  Three dies in this set and I love it!  I kept this card pretty CAS but I can see some stitching happening with this set!

I die cut the bird in white three times, keeping the pieces intact, glued them together and then die cut one in blue/green and glued it on top I love all the detail in the leaves and the shapes!

The sentiments ‘hello’  and ‘Happiest of Birthdays to you’ inside are from the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for all occasions!

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

NEW Memory Box Riverbank Large Layered Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Dies Card…

Hi everyone! We’re far from flowers blooming in Iowa today…woke up to ice and now a little snow! haha

Paper flowers are always in season though!  YAY!

and this one is so pretty and easy to make!  It’s really a clean and simple card with Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads.  I used the 3 yellows from the Sunny Orange collection pad… prettier in real life!  The green is from the Green Lush pad.

I edged everything with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

When I glued the three petal sections together, I laid them on top of the envelope picture for placement… that sure works slick.  If I hadn’t thought of that last year, I would be fiddling for hours with placement. Insert eye rolling!

This is an A2 size card.

I die cut the Exquisite Leaf Frame, the three leaf image and single leaf image from the Exquisite Leaf Set for this card.  Gorgeous, gorgeous dies!!!  I love these leaves!  It’s gonna be fun playing with all the new dies.

I used a sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Colorful Life stamp set.  White heat embossed on Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock.  Another fabulous set full of great sentiments!  Wishing you Happiness on your special day….enjoy each Joyful moment…your sweet smile can change the world…Big Hugs…Hello Sunshine and tons more!

I die cut Hello Lovely with one of the rectangles from the poppystamps contempo Greetings set.

I think that’s everything!  A little Spring in your day today and this yellow is so pretty and I’m not a yellow person! haha

Thank you for stopping by and for all your encouraging words!  I got my Valentines all done for the family and I’ll be posting them soon… that’s where I’ve been!  We had our annual Valentine, pizza party Saturday evening. Super fun!  Whoever wants to, makes ATCs and we pass them out.  Lilli was super creative and made cookie boxes!  So fun and yummy!

I’ll be back soon with more NEW from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Designs!

Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch Card…

Hi everyone! Enjoying some sunshine today and warmer temps! yay!  I decided to use this new Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch die to make a love card!  It’s that time of year!

I die cut the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die in a white panel of cardstock. Then I ran it back through with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate die.

I die cut a red heart with the Double Stitch Happy Heart also.

I used Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Berry Red, Fresh Aqua and Lush Green.

For the sentiment I heat embossed the sentiment from the poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp set in white on black cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I added a few Christmas Fairy Jewels.

I adhered the bird and the sentiment with mounting tape.

Thank you for stopping by today! I’ll be back again soon!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Snowflake Window Stencil Card…

NEW Release from Simon Says Stamp! I received the NEW Snowflake Stencil and made a clean and simple mini slimline card. This one turned out to be 3 ¼ in x 6 ⅜ in. 

I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray glue, adhered it to Canson Smooth Bristol cardstock and inked with Distress Oxide stamp pads and blending brushes. Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid lagoon.

Let it Snow is a newer die from Memory Box, Let it Snow Posh Script, both layers cut from heavy white cardstock. I mounted it to the panel with pieces of mounting tape.

I embellished the snowflakes with Memory Box Clear, self adhesive Fairy Drops.

I love these pretty, sparkly, Winter colors!

I stamped the inside with a newer sentiment clear stamp set from poppystamps, Wintertime Sentiments with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. Some really fun sentiments in this set. “Thanks for Snow much fun”,  “Happy Winter Wishes to you”, Warm and cozy Winter greetings”, “You are One of a kind”, “Tis the Season to be freezin'”, “The world changes when it Snows”, and more!  

I’ll leave you with one more sentiment from this wonderful stamp set… “Friends warm even the coldest of days”.  I agree!  Thank you for stopping by!

Alexandra Renke Holly Branch Die CAS card…

Hi everyone! Glad tidings to you and your kin!  A clean and simple card to share with you today.  I saw a wreath card on Instagram made up like this so I had to try it!

I used the beautiful, elegant Alexandra Renke Holly Branch die and beautiful Memory Box stamps for the sentiments inside and out.

I die cut the holly branch three times, glued them together.  I think I colored the top one before I glued together.  I don’t know that it’d matter.

My pictures aren’t the greatest, I didn’t have time to set up like normal but I wanted to share anyway.

I colored the berries with Copic Sketch Markers R24, 29 and 89.  The little dot is in the die and I just put a dot of white gel pen on it.

I heat embossed the sentiment in Ranger Detail Gold Embossing powder on a strip of red cardstock and die cut it with the long narrow die from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas set.

An A2 size card…

Thank you for stopping by today!  I always appreciate your visits and I want to wish you a blessed Christmas. So much to be thankful for.

I just remembered I might be back with the cards I made for the grandkids!  We’ll see how pictures go!  Down to the wire and I haven’t started wrapping yet!  eep!

poppystamps Whittle Friendly Snowman and Double Joy Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy with this card!  I probably could’ve added more and tried to bling it up but this time I just left him to say JOY to the world! ❤

This is a new poppystamps snowman die… so whimsical and fun!  Oh you know a little holly might’ve been nice… I always think of things after! lol

I put him on a bed of snow from the new poppystamps Layered House Globe die set.

He just melts your heart, doesn’t he?! ❤  Oh…a heart on his belly to represent the O for joy would’ve been super fun too!

I used a plaid paper from last Winter’s 6×6 plaid paper pad called Christmas Plaid!  I’m not finding it to link to anymore but I’ll link to this year’s pad that would work too! ugh.  Sorry about that.  I don’t know why I grabbed this one instead of the new one.

I die cut him from heavy white cardstock and colored his parts with Copic Sketch Markers.  I backed the circles with a smaller punch circle so I would have something to glue his eyes and carrot too.  Then I used mounting tape behind his top part, mounting tape behind the snow hill and mounting tape behind the top parts of the letters J and Y.

I die cut the plaid with the largest Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die. Then I matted it with black cardstock and adhered them to a 5 ½ x 5 ½ piece of green from the Memory Box 6×6  Lush Green cardstock pad. It matches perfectly with this plaid! yay!

‘To The World’ sentiment is from the new Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings again… this is such a good set!

I love this new poppystamps Double Joy die too… you get so many options with the two dies included in the set!

Mr. Frosty is 5 ½ in. x 5 ½ in. square. So cute!  I need to make some more of these and vary them a little as I go! hehe

Thank you so much for stopping by and your comments and for shopping through my links!  I appreciate it!

Memory Box Layered Poinsettia, Slim Confetti Plate, Holly Bundle, Pine Needle Trio and Joy Posh Script Card…

Hello!  Hope you are having a beautiful Saturday! Here’s a little festive holiday in paper finally!  Where did this week go?! 

I used some of the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads for the poinsettias, pines and holly… I love having the different tones of reds to combine!  I didn’t add any inking to the petals but I think that would really take these petals up a notch!

Isn’t this NEW Joy Posh Script die beautiful!  I love it in the foil gold cardstock!

I die cut the NEW Slim Confetti Plate in heavyweight white cardstock and left some of the circles in place for fun!

I die cut a piece of gold cardstock with a Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die and layered it behind the Confetti panel.

I adhered both panels to a slim line cardbase.

I used pieces of foam mounting tape to adhere the poinsettias on first, making sure there was room to stick the holly and pine under the petals.  The Holly leaves are adhered with foam mounting tape also.  The Pine Needle Trio dies, I glued directly to the cardbase.

Here’s a couple more process photos…

I used the die package for constructing the poinsettias. In the pictures you see the two main pieces, then you glue the three separate leaves on matching them up too… anyway, that’s what I did! lol

Then I played with placement a little and took a picture with my phone so I would know where to put them when I transferred to the cardbase! 

My pictures are all on different days!  Different weather conditions every day… so much for natural light! lol 

You know the dies are beautiful though because Memory Box dies make the prettiest Christmas cards!  You will have fun with these festive dies and they all cut beautifully!

I’m going to go out and enjoy some sunshine for a little while!  yay!  Take care and I’ll be back here soon!

Memory Box Florentina Wreath and Merry Christmas Posh Script Card…

Hi everyone! Have you started on your Christmas card stash yet?  I’m working away dreaming of all the fun stuff there is out there to make!

Today’s card is a couple new dies and a sentiment from a new stamp set that I used on a previous card.

I die cut the new Florentina Wreath in heavyweight white cardstock and colored it with Copics.

Then I decided to inlay it back into the white panel that I die cut it from!  I love how it looks!  Hopefully you can see it in some of my pictures.

I wish I’d used a lighter brown for the branch so the red berries would’ve shown up better but the dot of white gel pen did help!

Very easy to inlay back in because there’s only the outside panel and the inside panel pieces to piece the wreath back into!  Super easy and classy looking!  That word gives me another idea… die cutting the wreath and then using embossing ink, gold embossing powder and heat embossing to make the wreath gold!

This is an A2 size card… the wreath panel is 4 x 5 ¼ in. then the black mat layer is just a teeny border and the cardbase is 5 ½ x 8 ½ in. folded and scored.

Very traditional again but festive and CAS too!

The sentiment is white embossing powder on TE oreo cardstock and from the new Festive Christmas Greetings stamp set.

Holler if you have any questions…I’m sure I forgot something. lol

OH!  The die cut Merry Christmas is a beautiful new die, Merry Christmas Posh Script!  I die cut it in TE Cherry Pop and white cardstock.

I cut narrow pieces of foam mounting tape for the back and adhered it over the inlaid wreath.

Thank you for stopping by!  Thinking….what to make next!

Memory Box Joy and Cheer, Large Pine Cone and Gentle Pine Needle Sprig Dies Card…

Hi everyone! How are you?  It’s cooling off here in Iowa and the days have been beautiful! I hope you’re enjoying the Fall where you are too!

My card today reminds me of the fancy ones you get from businesses with all the gold foiling and personalized touches!  I was tickled that this came out leaning toward a masculine feeling.  Sometimes Tim needs cards for business associates so this one would work great!

I used the NEW Memory Box Woodsy Plaid 6×6 double sided papers pad.  Gorgeous designs!

I don’t know why flat photos turn out different colors but the plaid is pretty anyway…somewhere between the colors in the photos! lol

Really straight forward card… die cut the images and sentiment from Bazzill Gold Foil cardstock, HERE… glue the pinecone together… die cut the sentiment backer from one of the blues from the Memory Box Stormy Blue 6×6 cardstock pad. 

I used foam mounting tape on the cone and the sentiment.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I finished it with a piece of lighter blue from the same Stormy Blue cardstock pad and stamped an image/Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from the Yuletide Moments stamp set… I love this set!  Beautiful images for the front and inside of the card!

 

The gorgeous pearls are new from Starlitstudio!  I love having the smaller sizes!  Thank you Cindy!  She has them in other colors also… HERE… there are so many in the little bottle, it doesn’t look like I used any!

This card is 4 ⅜ in x 6 ¼ in so it will fit in an A7 envelope with room to spare, no corners ruined in mailing.

The pinecone is so pretty… it really catches the light and shows the dimension that Dave designed into the die!

Memory Box You Anchor Me Card…

It’s always fun to have a masculine card in the stash!  Today’s card is the new Memory Box You Anchor Me stamp set and coordinating dies!

I stamped the anchor in TE’s Blue Corn ink, it’s a dark blue….love it!  Not black. hehe  Die cut it with the coordinating die, popped it up on a Memory Box die cut Wrapped Circles die cut, then matted it with a Circle Basics die cut in dark brown. 

I got out the Memory Box End of My Rope set… don’t you love that name?! lol  Decided I liked one, die cut it in white cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 

Some woodgrain pattern paper…two sentiments stamped in the MISTI in Ranger Coffee Archival Ink from the You Anchor Me set.

Then on the inside, a couple more sentiments.

I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die set. I should’ve stamped one of the little fish (in the set) inside with the words too!

I popped the anchor and rope up with a little 3M foam mounting tape, the 1/16th inch stuff so It’s still CAS and mailable!

Thank you for stopping by and come back!  Christmas is coming soon!  Can’t wait!

Memory Box Eucalyptus Collage and Thanks Cursive Script Circle Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have two Clean and Simple (CAS) cards to share with you today!  When I saw this new MB Eucalyptus die I immediately thought it’d be good for sympathy/thinking of you cards, which I never have enough of.

I die cut Eucalyptus Collage in one of the greens from the MB Lush Green 6×6 Cardstock Collection pad. The background paper is from the MB Garden Folly 6×6 pattern paper pad.  I love the little flower with the pink centers behind the collage! The green panel is cut with one of the MB Rectangle Basics die set.

Now that I’m posting this, other ideas come to mind. lol Remember MB Dave’s napkin watercoloring technique and how you add gold to it?!  Yes!  I think touches of gold on simple watercoloring would be so pretty!

I used 3m foam mounting tape to lift the collage panel.  It’s the big roll and not very thick…

I heat embossed the sentiment in white powder with a sentiment from the poppystamps Diamond Sentiments stamp set. A ton of great sentiments in this set.

A2 size card…

My second card is a mini slim size… 3 ½ in. x 6 in.

I was struggling with what to do with this circle die… the first card I made was UGLY! lol  Now I wish I’d taken these pictures with a black background! ugh

Very simple composition.   I die cut MB Thanks Cursive Script Circle and Stained Glass Floral in white, then trimmed out the floral part from the square.

I’m giving the MB new Banner Sentiment Trio die set a work out this release!  I die cut the middle size, folded it in half and stapled it onto the circle.

Then I stapled on the floral die cut.  The Tim Holtz mini stapler at work again!

It’s a sweet, cute card IRL!  I suppose I should’ve tried a third time to get better pictures! ha.  It’s been one of those picture weeks… I can always tell when the season is changing!  I’ll quit whining and finish up! lol

Thank you for stopping by today!  ‘preciate it!

poppystamps Whittle Dies Two Day Series…

Hi everyone!  We’ll start with food Whittles! lol There are so many of these cute little dies! I need a two week series! (not just two days) lol  Christmas is coming though!  I’m getting anxious to see what Memory Box/poppystamps/Birchpress Designs will have for us!

My three cards today are a 4 bar size, 3 ⅜ in x 4 ⅞ in.  I love this smaller size for the Whittle dies!

We’re a taco lovin’ family so I had to use the sentiments in the Life is Sweet stamp set.  “You guac my world” !  The Happy Birthday from the new Marzipan Greetings stamp set and dies ended up being the tomato! lol Time for lunch! haha   I love the play on words though!  So FUN!

I used one of the Memory Box Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out dies to make the center frame.  I used two greens from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Whittle Avocado and Whittle Taco and Nacho cuts from the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads also, Sunny Orange and Lush Green.

I used a pink Copic marker for cheeks and white gel pen for accents. A yummy birthday card! lol

Next….”Heres the scoop” Sentiments from the same Life is Sweet stamp set.

I kept this one CAS, clean and simple.  I cut off the tail of the word balloon from the poppystamps Word Balloons die set… I’m using this die a lot!

Stamped it with the sentiment from Life is Sweet in coffee Ranger Archival ink and inked the edges with Distress Gathered Twigs ink and a mini ink blending tool.  This ink and tool are always out on my table.

I love the detail on this cone!  poppystamps Whittle Ice Cream Cone, die cut in kraft cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs.  The ice cream I cut in kraft also and colored dark chocolate with Copic Sketch Markers.

A radio talk show host I listen to sometimes,  always says “living the dream” if someone asks him how he is.   The last couple years have been closer to living the nightmare in our lives! lol ugh. Some young gal pulled out in front of me on the four lane last night, trying to kill us all!  My horn works, didn’t do any good…she was oblivious!  So I’ll stop worrying about deer running out in front of me and start worrying about dumb drivers!

I adhered them to the card with foam mounting tape.  Oh, the white panel is a Memory Box die from the Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles Set. (I see it’s no longer available, I added some other options to the links below)

The pink cardstock is from the Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Cardstock pad.

Next…”Do all things with Love” from the Marzipan Greetings set.

The only thing food related on this cutie card is the color!  Orange! lol  From the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pad Sunny Orange. (yellows in it too)

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment, “this is a paper hug”!

I die cut a heart in the two colors with the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die.

I die cut the poppystamps Heart Tag Trio in two colors.  Heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder and put the card together.

I think this would be a fun card to make in any color and send off to friends, kids, grands or family!

I was going to put my two other cards in this post too but that’s so much!  I’m gonna post again tomorrow with those two.

So this is all for today! hehe  See you tmr!

poppystamps Geometric Deco Plate Card and Tag…

Hi everyone!  A week can sure go by fast when you have company….even when you have good intentions to get a blog post in!

Today I’m sharing a card and tag using poppystamps new Geometric Deco Plate and Art Deco Birthday Greetings clear stamp set!

Need to whip up a card in a hurry?  poppystamps and Memory Box to the rescue!

I needed a piece of copy paper to shim this plate die…angle it into the machine so you’re not bumping over a straight line!

I embossed the light green card panel underneath the cut with the same die to give it a little dimension… that little ‘extra’.  You don’t want the sandwich too tight though, the paper will crack.  I used the debossed side this time.

Memory Box Fresh Aqua 6×6 cardstock pad!  I love that the papers are already color coordinated for me!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m off to help Amanda put up peaches this afternoon.  We’ve been making yummy peach cobbler…. a great recipe HERE!  My mom used to make this one with rhubarb.  It says use a 9×9 pan but we use 9×13.

Below are links to what I used! All the stores are getting in new stuff!  Cindy is back from vacation and shipping @ starlitstudio.net.  SSS has a $5 off code good through 8/15  YUM521.  Scrapbook.com always has specials!

ttul!
