Memory Box NEW ‘All the Happiness’ Stamp Set…

Hi everyone! It’s time for a NEW release from Memory Box!  So fun for all that love to color and love beautiful lettering!

Today’s card is using the NEW All the Happiness stamp set with two coordinating dies for the florals in the set.

AND there’s *NINE* NEW Memory Box cardstock paper pads!!!  48 6×6 inch sheets. 4 each of 12 shades. Printed on 110lb. cardstock. 6 x 6 inches. So awesome!

I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink, watercolored with regular Distress Ink, Victorian Velvet and Rustic Wilderness and shaded with Caran ‘dAche dark Carmine and black colored pencils.

Heat embossed the sentiment with black pigment ink and black embossing powder.

For the frame I die cut the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles largest die, then to make it a frame I used one of the dies from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics Set to cut the center out.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ve been helping grands with Valentines… so fun. I need to make some for them!  I drank tea too late yesterday so I’m propping my eyelids open today. haha  Not responsible for spelling and sentence structure today!

Memory Box Small Fringed Peony, Scribble Leafy Branch Thank You Card…

HELLO!!!  Bright card today! No sunshine here today except on this card! lol

I tried using a Gel Plate for the Smooshed Background on this card.  I put drops of Distress Ink refills on the plate, spritzed it with water and then laid the piece of watercolor paper in it and smooshed!  Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers are the colors I used.  Added spatters with the extra ink.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Small Fringed Peony from three Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock colors and pieced them into a white cut. Then I die cut two more of just the white and glued them on top and liked it better.

I went in with some color pencils for some shadows on the flower petals.  Just enough colorbook therapy to make me happy!

I die cut the new Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background in Bazzill Cardshoppe cardstock and the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline in White cardstock. Layered and glued them together.

I stamped and embossed the images from the new Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set.  I used the MISTI and Gold Embossing Powder.

I added three Doodlebug pearls…sequins might’ve been fun too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your Summer is off to a great start!  Happy papercrafting!

Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Meets MFT BB Rain or Shine…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Starting out Monday right with a blog post! I have a birthday card to share that I made for our granddaughter Anya’s 13th birthday.  She loved it!  Now to get her over here to make one herself!  😀

I colored this cute gal and ducks from MFT’s Rain or Shine stamp set with my new color pencils on Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock…inked on the clouds with an MFT cloud stencil and the mini ink blending tool, oh and a little concrete in inked on the bottom and stamped with a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Sentiment stamp set.

It’s a cloudy day here so far…goes right a long with my card!  Thankful for the rain though, cuz… the trees you know! lol

I used the Speech Bubble Add on this time to make the window for the sentiments to show up in and four sentiments from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments set.

Here’s Lawn Fawn Kelly Marie’s video on making the Reveal Wheel card.  It’s an A2 size card and amazingly easy! yay!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy coloring, card making this week to you!

poppystamps Autumn Fairies and Brilliant Leaf Frame die…

Hi everyone! An Autumn card to share today. Colorbook therapy with stamping and pencils.

I die cut the frame in Kraft card-stock, colored the leaves and inserted them back in the frame from the back and used Scotch mounting tape strips/cut to fit, to hold the leaves in place.

She’s so cute! Yes, I did change her eyes a bit because I was outlining them with black after coloring and didn’t stay on the line, so I had to ‘fix’ them. I did glitter her wings with some glitter pen.

Don’t you love the acorn house? Tiny houses are all the rage! I could never live in one! eek! This set is so fun! I love it!

I inked the edges of everything with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I love how the leaves in the stamp and die sets match the Brilliant Leaf Frame die.  So many possibilities!   The Leaf Frame die is available now and the stamp and die sets are coming soon in the September release…arriving in stores Friday or this weekend!  yay!

The gold splats are Heidi Swapp metallic gold spray… link below.

Hope she made you smile!  Thanks for stopping by!  I love hearing from you and thank you so much for your visits and comments!  I appreciate it!

Paper Smooches Best Buds Flower card…

Here’s that second card I had the gals make at our stamp club party Friday.  I colored this one at home though with Distress Ink refills.

At the party, I had the gals use Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils and the blue waterbrush filled with water from this set HERE. These waterbrushes are really cheap but they hold up really well.  I buy them for the kids and end up using them myself! lol

The photo below is a close up of the watercolor pencil one. 

Very fun to color…love this sweet image from Paper Smooches Best Buds stamp set  HERE or HERE.  I don’t own the dies so I cut it with the My Favorite Things Inside and Out Rounded Rectangles Stax. If you want the dies to match, they are HERE.

The polka dot border is from the Geo-Graphic stamp set and the thanks sentiment is from the Sentiment Sampler stamp set HERE and HERE.

I stamped with Taylored Expressions Oreo Black ink and used Crafter’s Companion Watercolor paper.

Neat and Tangled Merry Bear Birthday Card…

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day-flat

Look at this adorable little snowman! It’s family birthday time again and our youngest grandson is turning two tomorrow!  Where does the time go?!

I wanted to play in the NBUS challenge with the option of color pencil on kraft.  I love how this almost looks like wood!

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day

I stamped with the MISTI, colored with pencil, then went back and using the MISTI again, I left the stamps where they were, inked with black pigment embossing ink, stamped them and heat embossed them with black powder.

So many times when you color with pencils you lose the strong black line.  We used to do this years ago when Stampa Rosa had the House Mouse stamps. We would stamp them their stamp positioner, color them with Tombow markers and then come back and emboss them over the top of the marker coloring.  Amazing the difference.

Next time I am going to color the image right in the MISTI without moving the card-stock.  There was enough ‘user error’ this time that I had to stamp the bear a few times and ended up with a thicker black line then the stamp really has. grrr   Still cute though!

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day-close

Hopefully we’ll get some snow for his birthday!  haha  It’s been a weird, rainy Winter for Iowa.  Not used to dark and dreary.  It’s usually bright with snow!  I’m sure we’ll get those Winters again.
