Birch Press Design Herbarium Plate and Adornment Dove Card…


I’m back!  I didn’t put the glitter cardstock pads away! 

Another die cut and glue fast and easy card you could mass produce! 

Using the NEW Birch Press Design Herbarium plate Layer A and NEW Adornment Dove dies!

I die cut layer A in the blue green and green.  I had to shim the blue green layer with a folded piece of copy paper to completely cut it (the glitter cardstock is thick) so I knew when I ran the green piece through, it wouldn’t completely cut out the design.  When you layer the green under the blue green it really adds to the depth if it has the design partially cut into it.  I should’ve taken a picture!  I hope that makes sense! 

I added two strips of 2 inch scor-tape on the back of the green layer to make sure all the pieces stayed in it and then I just used that to adhere it to a white A2 cardbase.

I glued the blue green layer over the green layer with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue.

I die cut the solid backer Adornment Dove die in the champagne-ish color glitter cardstock and the outline Adornment Dove in white glitter cardstock.  

I LOVE that there’s a backer die for this dove!


Die cut the berries with scraps of red glitter cardstock… there are only three sets of berries, so easy to glue in if you put small pieces scro-tape on the back of the blue green layer before adhering it to the green layer. 

Die cut the Peace Honey Script die from red and white glitter cardstock and glue it on.  I used small pieces of mounting tape on the leg of the ‘p’ and behind the ‘c’.

Easy! yay!  Another card done…almost… I didn’t stamp the inside yet!  I’ll be sorry later! haha

Thank you for stopping by to see this.  It’s so pretty IRL.  I wish I was a professional photographer that could capture the true glitter and sparkly of this cardstock! 

I’m thinking this dove could be made into an ornament and even layered on a gift loosely with a tag!  So pretty!

ok – talk to you again soon!

Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone! Welcome to my attempt to show how glittery amazing this glitter cardstock from Memory Box is and how fun to use it with this new BPD release!  I’m sitting here looking at the real card wishing I could just show it to you IRL because it is so sparkly and pretty!!!

This was a fast card to make…all die cutting and so easy with a pad of 6×6 glitter cardstock!

Here it is from the side.  I die cut a white cardstock base with the easel die in the set, then I die cut from the glitter paper and glued it to the white card die cut.  Because of the 6 x 6 size of the glitter cardstock, I had to make it in two pieces.  It worked fine, you really can’t tell it. 

I’m going to say it again… it was so easy to make! lol  Cut and glue!  This would be a great card for a class or a cardmaker get together!

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the BPD Christmas Ornament and Labels stamp and die set but I couldn’t decide if I wanted on the card for the pictures!  So it’s laying off to the side.  I will glue it on when I send it.

So pretty too… just glam it up!

It could easy be made into an ornament to hang on the tree or a gift tag!

It folds up so nice and will easily fit in an A2 envelope and mail for one postage stamp.

I added a Memory Box Christmas Fairy Drop in red on the bow.  Boom!  Done!  Taking pictures, trying to capture glitter cardstock took longer! 

***Bonus – None of this glitter comes off!!!  Thank you Memory Box! lol

Thank you for visiting today!

Time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp…. Dream Big!

Hi everyone!  Bringing you everything ‘dreamy’ with this release in Summery July!  Check it all out HERE

I received the Tropical Leaf Bunch die to play with.  It’s from Simon Says Stamp but designed by Memory Box!  I love it when I get the designs by MB!

You deserve a break but I don’t mean at Mc Donalds! lol   I’m not a beach person but I’ve probably not been at the right beach to appreciate it! 

Here I kept it very CAS (clean and simple). 

I die cut a rectangle out of copy paper so I could ink blend an area centerish on the front of my A2 size cardbase.

I blended oxide inks with my blue and brown brushes without putting on more ink because I wanted it very light.

Then I did some splattering with Prize Ribbon and Ground Espresso Distress inks and then a little white acrylic after the ink splatters were dry.

I die cut three of the Tropical Leaf Bunch, glued them together and then directly to the cardbase.

The beach chair is from last months SSS release.  I stamped it and fussy cut it by hand, colored it with Copics and glued it directly to the cardbase. Details about this set in my post HERE

Then I stamped the sentiment from the beach stamp set and added Memory Box Fairy Jewels from the Pastel set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Hope you enjoy the new release and here’s the 

code for $5 off through 8/15…  5BUCKS

Have a great weekend!  Do any of you have an ebike?  We’re going to go looking at them this afternoon.

ttul,

p.s. links to the new products are in bold and the SSS picture in my post!  Thank you for looking/shopping through my links!  I appreciate it!

NEW Memory Box Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Card and a storage tip…

It’s a beautiful day here in south central Iowa! I should’ve been out riding my bike this morning! lol  Do any of you have an e bike? Do you like it?  I’m sure tempted to go look and try one of them.

A clean and simple look to my card today.  I used a champagne colored foil to hot foil the sentiment but it looks black.  Figures.

I  didn’t think to try to catch the light when I was taking pictures but it really is foil! poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil and Cut Die Set.

I used Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles…it’s my go to for cutting panels it seems.  I like it!

I embossed the new 3D folder and die cut the leaves with the included dies, glued them to the white A2 panel except for the top middle leaf, I used the thin mounting tape that I’ll link to below.

I made some pretty little flowers with poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set from the most recent release.  The smallest die cut, cut two times for each flower and layered together and glued in the center directly to the panel.

I used the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers die from the most recent release and made some pretty tropical dragonflies to land on the card!

Straight forward die cutting and gluing…no inking even! BOOM! lol  Two non inked cards in a row!

Tip: The next two pictures are how I decided to store the 3D folders and dies using the packaging that they come in!  I think it’s really slick!

I take the heavyweight clear piece off of the sturdy cardboard backer they come with and cut the top off of the plastic with a scissors so it becomes a slot when you put it back over the cardboard backer and you can slip the folder and the dies in and out of!  No additional plastic sleeve needed for storage! Perfect!

Thank you for stopping by…holler if you have any questions!

poppystamps Grand Whittle Ice Cream Card…

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year when we’re all trying to keep cool! This card makes me smile because Breyers Natural Neapolitan Ice Cream is a favorite around here!

I made this card before I made the flower cards the other day and without even realizing I used strips again! lol   I love how it turned out!

So cute and screams SUMMER!

I’ll link up what I used below…straight forward for the most part.  I made the narrow frame by taping two of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies together.  (I leave them taped together just in case I need to make another before I need them apart!)

I stamped the sentiments then used the sentiment die that comes in the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings set. 

This last shot is a little too pink… I didn’t try to change it but it’s Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake cardstock, I’ll ink below.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!  I can’t believe it’s almost the 4th of July!  I haven’t made a 4th card yet this year but I love making patriotic cards.  I made a card to share next with Memory Box NEW Release.  Then I have a bunch of birthday cards to share so I hope you don’t get tired of me blasting you with blog posts!  😀

Birch Press Design Tropical Hibiscus and Star Flowers Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Working with new products from Birch Press Designs for my two cards today.  I made a card using them the day before I made these but I didn’t like it so I brought out the strip CAS card design again!  I’ve used it before HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Two for one when you cut two colors of cardstock. The flowers are cut from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Lush Green and Fresh Aqua.

I used poppystamps NEW Modest Greetings 2 Foil and Cut Die Set and Silver Foil.

The sentiment on this card is from the Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.

The NEW BPD Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers die set is so pretty with the layered look for the flower and the leaves.  When you die cut it scores the area where you add the layer so you know exactly where to glue the pieces.  Super easy!

The NEW BPD Star Flowers Contour Layers die set and the BPD Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die set (smaller branch) on this card… same as the Hibiscus.  You can see the marks where to place the layers… love that! No guessing or wondering if you got it in the right place.

Both cards are A2 size. The Hibiscus card I used a little bit of thin foam mounting tape, the one I’m linking below.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Make some strip cards!

Baseball Birthday Boy Card…

Hi everyone! Always birthdays happening around here! Rogan turned 8 June 1st and I’m just now getting this posted.  I don’t think I’ve gotten all the other birthdays posted either so this is probably good that I’m getting this one done!

I really liked this card!  Usually I like to do something interactive but there’s not enough sports stamps in my stash so the interactive part came on the inside.  I really like the sets I used though and am getting a lot of use out of them!

I had some baseball washi tape that kinda covered up the fact that this die has scallop edges.

I used An Altenew Alphabet set on the front and the stamps and dies from Sunny Studio and Waffleflower.  Here’s another card I used the Batter set for.

Rogan likes to keep busy playing sports or helping his dad.

I loved using the alphabet for his name and embellishing it… now I want to do it everytime but I probably better not. lol

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope your day is a HOME RUN! haha

Memory Box Charlotte Blooms and More…

Are you a fan of lime?  This is one of the sheets from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad!  It turned out fun!

Love this sentiment set from Poppystamps too! I stamped it directly on the panel, then on white and cut out the banner and mounted it over the stamped banner. Say It Big is the stamp set and it has coordinating dies too!  Love that!

For this card I die cut the NEW Memory Box Charlotte Blooms dies in white cardstock and with the mini ink blending tool, colored the centers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I die cut the Leaves from the Charlotte set in the same green as the background.

I glued the flowers and leaves directly to the green card panel.  The only thing popped up a bit is the banner.

This is an A6 size card.

The first card I made using the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die set is the one below…I die cut in the yellows from the Memory Box 6×6 Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  The flower centers from the Earth Neutral pad. The leaves from the Lush Green pad.

For the butterfly I used the Memory Box Gloriosa Butterly Duo Outlines die, the smaller one from the set and the underneath butterfly is the NEW Memory Box Ava Butterflies die, die cut from the Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  Fun!  It you use Ava on it’s own, you can fluff up the sections I think.  I still have to try it. lol

I wanted to tie in the foiled New Memory Box Posh Birthday Wishes hot foil and die set so I used the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die cut in Woodsy Plaid 6×6 pad and NEW Polished Foil 6×6 pad.

Kraft cardbase and A2 size.

Thank you for stopping by today!  We’re watching the grass grow, thankful for rain!

Memory Box NEW Lavender Bouquet and Posh Thank You Hot Foil…

Hi everyone! Have you had time to look at the NEW Memory Box release and see the NEW Hot Foil Plate and Cutting Die sets?  Today I used the NEW Posh Thank You set and I love it on the Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock!

I started with a mini slimline panel.  Then I was thinking backgrounds…I love Memory Box Collage dies and I grabbed the Jumbled Line Collage and found all the positive pieces from cutting a few times in the envelope!  YAY! Make my own tile/brick looking wall to show off the lavender!

I ran a couple stripes of ATG adhesive down the panel and just started placing the strips…they’re very random lengths.  I didn’t go by anything, just picked up and stuck them on.

I die cut the lavender in lilac and green cardstocks, trimmed off the stems from the lilac ones and glued the top to the green.

I glued the stems directly over the strips, then glued the thank you directly over the stems.  No mounting tape was used on this one!

The panel is glued directly on the mini slimline cardbase too!

Easy to make, easy to mail!  yay!

Thank you for stopping by!  Curious what your favorite new dies are from this release?!

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 also used the NEW from the last release Stained Glass Bird die and from a release before that, the Fine Textured Leaf die 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!

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.

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!
