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!

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…

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!  ❤

Wreath Building, You’ve Been On My Mind Card…

Hi everyone! Today is my last post as a ‘fetti friend for Reverse Confetti.  It’s been fun creating with their January release for two months! I hope you’ve enjoyed it. ❤

I decided to use the new Butterfly Wreath stamp and dies set but just the three smaller images to make a wreath using the wreath builder technique and the MISTI.

I love the simplicity of it and that the message is what you see first. It’s not always possible to be with people in person but if you’re like me, we are thinking of them!

I stamped in green ink but just die cut the three little floral images and butterfly. I colored in the flowers and butterfly with Copic Sketch Markers.

For the card base, I ran the new Stitched Scallops cover plate die through the Big Shot with the embossing set up instead of die cutting it.  I really like the soft feel of this look for this card and message.

My other cards I made with these sets and dies are HERE and HERE.

So glad to have you visit today!  Thank you so much for stopping by! ❤

Memory Box Floral Bouquet Heart Card…

Hearts are just the best don’t you think? hehe I think it’s been awhile since I told the story of my blog name.  In 1994 I started a new venture as a stamp store owner.  In trying to decide what to name the store, I finally settled on ‘Expressions With Heart’.  The phrase ‘expressions with heart’ was used in the Hero Arts catalog that year.  Something about creating expressions with heart and it just hit home with me!  I closed the store after 12 years and started blogging in 2009. I used the name again because I loved it and still love it after all these years!

Here’s the new Memory Box Floral Bouquet Heart die cut three times and layered over some of the new Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut out dies.

I just love the outside the lines stitch lines and then to have them double… hehe…swoon!

I used some more of the Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad from the Christmas release… so fun how it crosses over!

The love die cut is from the Memory Box Love Jotted Script die… stamped sentiments are from the new Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set.

An A2 size card…pretty straight forward.

The Floral Bouquet heart would be pretty colored or cut and pieced!  So fun!

Thank you for stopping by today! Stay tuned… more hearts to come!  ❤
