Memory Box Floral Collage and Birch Press Design Crystal Lingo Cards…

Hello everyone!  Here’s to flowers blooming everywhere!

I combined some dies for this card…nothing stamped on this one!  I LOVE this Jumbled Line Collage die…new from Memory Box.

The flowers are from the release before this last one.  I used the Layered Daisies, Layered Fresh Flowers and Thank You Posh Script dies.

Five of the new Memory Box Fairy Jewels and two of the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads.  I love that there are three shades for each of the 4 colors in the pads.  I used Berry Red and Lush Green.

The Jumbled Line Collage lends itself to any card size.  I made this one in the Mini Slim Size, 3 ½ by 6 inches.

Oh the leaves and berry branches are from the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set.

My next card is Bright too! lol

Here’s a simple slim line card… I ink blended five colors of Distress Oxide onto a piece of cardstock using Taylored Expressions Ink blender brushes.  I let it dry overnight and heat embossed with white powder the slim line size stamp from Birch Press Design, Crystal Lingo.

The Happy and Birthday To You stamps are both from the same set and there are dies to cut out the big words.

I colored HAPPY with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used the Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layers dies to cut the stamped panel and the black layer.

It kinda reminds me of a box of crayons! lol

Some beautiful days this week here in Iowa.  We live in a big old house with two Central air units… the one for the 2nd and 3rd floor pooped out on us Tuesday. ugh ugh ugh.  I like being cool!  So, here’s hoping we can get a new unit in fast!  It could be challenging, especially sleeping.

I’ll get off and figure out what I need to do next without getting hot! lol

Some of the supplies I used to make these cards… and while I have you here… look at the June Clearance SALE at Scrapbook.com!  I found some things I needed for birthdays!  yay!  Tons of good stuff!

Cottage Cutz Gnome Sleeping in Hammock Card…

Hi everyone!  Something a little different this week…a sleepyhead!  A cute sleepyhead though!

I die cut this Gnome Sleeping in Hammock from Cottage Cutz, all in Neenah 110# white cardstock and colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers.  Easy coloring and I didn’t have to find cardstock scraps to die cut all the little pieces.  The only drawback is, you aren’t helping to use up your scraps stash! ho ho

Thinking about a sentiment… I grabbed a new set from My Favorite Things and used one of the sentiments.  I’m not sure who I’ll send this to!  It’s using that naughty B word that Tim and I didn’t let the girls use when they were growing up!  It was find something to do or I’ll find you something to do! lol

I made a grass stencil with a Memory Box Grass die.  Using a TE ink blending brush and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink, I did the grass.

Using a My Favorite Things cloud stencil, a TE ink blending brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, I did the sky.

This is an A2 size card….blank on the inside so far!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope this little guy made you smile!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows and MFT Spring Gnomes Card…

Truth – You’re a friend like gnome other!  Cardmakers just click!

I’m using the NEW Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows die today from the latest release, ‘All The Feels’….very fun to create three little scenes with the NEW My Favorite Things Spring Gnomes Stamp and die sets too!

I die cut the Windows die and backed it with Memory Box NEW Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  Such gorgeous papers!

The gnome, flowers and grass are die cut in Copic coloring cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Accented with a white Sakura gel pen.

I stamped the sentiments with the Misti stamping tool. On the inside I stamped the ‘I carrot about you so much’ sentiment and added a carrot. ❤

Hope it makes you smile and think Spring!

poppystamps Spring is a Time with Leafy Vines Slim Plate and Whittle Birds Card…

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying some nice days where you are!  The trees are budding and the grass is green!

I started today by cutting this new Leafy Vines Slim Plate in black…scrapped that.  lol  I die cut it in TE Toffee and colored the leaves quick with a Copic Sketch YG17 marker.  Then I inked the rest with the mini blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink pad. My go to brown for edging with ink.

Then I die cut a white cardstock panel with one of the New Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layer dies.  Using the light blue TE blending brush and Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass ink I brushed in the sky on this white panel.  I really like the look of some white space.

I die cut the poppystamps Whittle Birds from white cardstock and inked them with the red TE blending brush.  I didn’t add more ink, it already had oxide ink on it.

Then back to Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini blending tool for the rest of the bird.  I did the underside with a little brown too.

A black ink pen for the dot in the eyes.

The sentiment I used is from the poppystamps Springtime Fun clear stamp set.  It’s a beautiful sentiment but I cut it up for this card!  It fits back together though. Don’t panic!  ❤  You can almost hear the birds singing!

I heat embossed with VersaMark Ink and Lawn Fawn White Embossing powder on TE Oreo/black cardstock.

I had no idea what I was going to come out with when I started this card!   I guess that’s pretty normal for me. lol  I’m really happy with it!  I love it when I get a surprise like that! ❤

I hope you’ve had some time to be creative with paper and ink or out in the dirt! hehe

Thank you for stopping by! Keep me in your prayers… tomorrow was Breanna’s birthday.  My mom heart is weepy.  sigh.   Almost 6 months since she died.   I appreciate it! ❤

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Puppy Birthday Card…

Meet Maggie! lol  There’s a new toy poodle at our middle daughter’s house. So I had to make our youngest grandson a cute Magic Iris Maggie card for his 6th birthday in January.  So fun!  Charley loves it!

I used the Memory Box Birdhouse die set for the doghouse because I don’t own the Lawn Fawn birdhouse die.

The dog dish and bone are an old big punch or were they an old Quickutz die…I can’t remember!  I looked through so much stuff to find something that would work! lol

The Lawn Fawn design team is so inspiring!  It’s nice as a card designer/maker not to always have to come up with a new idea!

Here it is closed… pull the arrow tab down and it opens like a camera lens, sorta kinda!  hehe

and a video… it’s bad but gives you an idea of how it works.

Memory Box All That Happiness meets poppystamps Woven Basket…

Truth!  and on the inside I used the word ‘hugs’ from the same new Memory Box All That Happiness stamp and die sets.

I’m having fun using the new Memory Box Slim dies too!

I stamped and die cut one of the floral stamps in the set….simple Copic Sketch Marker coloring, the R30’s and YG61 and 63.

I die cut the basket from TE Toffee cardstock then I remembered my new Memory Box cardstock pads and found the perfect green to die cut the berries.  Dies from the new poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set.

A little white glaze pen on the berries…

Some baby pearls…

Popped up on mounting squares…

White heat embossed sentiment on TE black cardstock…

My granddaughter Attie sent me some pictures of her flowers popping up from the bulbs she planted last year.  It’s so fun to have a 17 year old so excited about growing flowers and food!  Her watermelons were the most amazing things ever last year!  Huge and delicious!  Here’s hoping it’s a bumper crop this year! lol

Hello Bluebird My Snowman Card…

Hi everyone!  yikes!  I’m thinking today I better get some cards posted I made for grands so far this year!  This might be the last snowman of the season for Iowa! Never know! lol  It snows in April some years.

Anyway… I know you’ll love the cuteness no matter what the season!

It was a good picture day whatever day I took these pictures so I have five pics to share! ❤

I used Hello Bluebird stamps and dies for this card.  I die cut the tree frame in kraft color cardstock…inked the brown trees, inked and then heat embossed the frame area with white embossing powder.

The background snow die is inked with Distress Oxide inks… ugh… I don’t remember the colors though.

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers… the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

So fun!  I always love making Winter scene cards.  This one is for our first red headed granddaughter that just turned 16 in January! We have two red headed granddaughters and five red headed grandsons!  My husband was a red head and two of our girls are red heads.  ❤

Hope this made you smile and bring back memories!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I always love hearing from you!

Memory Box Snow Much Fun Birthday Card…

Happy snow day if you live in snow territory like we do! Some years we don’t get much but this year we’re getting enough to keep it pretty and bright!

This is one of the birthday cards I’ve been working on…our boys love playing in the snow!

The bunnies, sentiment and snowballs are from the Memory Box Snow Much Fun stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.


The sled and presents are from the Memory Box Be Jolly stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.

I love that these sets can be used for Christmas and Winter… the candy cane could easy be switched out with the heart for Valentines Day! And there’s a die for all in the set!

I used the Memory Box Fresh Pine Curved Border die HERE for the snowy tree hill in the background.

Salty Ocean and a little bit of Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks for the background…then a spattering of white acrylic paint.

This card is the fabulous mini slim size that I am really loving!  3 ½ inches x 6 inches.  A few posts back I showed one this size but vertical using the new Memory Box Verdant Leaf Collage die, HERE.

So fun…Be watching!  More new stuff coming!  Thanks for stopping by!

NEW poppystamps Whittle Unicorn and Whittle Tree Border Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Back today with a birthday card using the NEW poppystamps Whittle Unicorn and Whittle Tree Border dies.  It turned out cute!

I die cut everything in white cardstock…colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers…I wish I’d inked the background before I adhered the die cuts but I didn’t so I ended up coloring around the images with a Copic Sketch Marker.  Normally I would ink with stamp pad ink and an ink blending tool!

 

A close up…I used the poppystamps Whittle Clouds and Double Stitch Rectangle Frames dies for this card also.  Maybe the unicorn should’ve been standing on clouds?  So much for my imagination!  I always had trouble coming up with stories for school. lol

The Whittle Unicorn comes with these cute heart dies… I didn’t get them worked on to the front so I used them inside!

Sentiment from poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.

Back to cards! Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box NEW Pine Tree, Wooded Glen and Little Orchard Collage Dies and Snowmen Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a card to share today using some of the new dies from the newest Memory Box release.  I tried to achieve a tunnel card look but thinner! hehe  I kinda succeeded.

Next time I think I need to add another ¼ inch crease on each side though.  Here’s a picture of the fold I used.

This piece is 5 ¾ inches wide, 5 ½ inches tall.  Next time I make it, I’m going to make it 6 ¼ inches wide.  This 5 ¾ in. piece has 3  ¼ in. scores, then it’s 4¼ in. then 3 more ¼ in. scores.

For 6 ¼ inches wide, you would have 4  ¼ inch scores, then 4¼ in. and 4 more ¼ in. scores.  I hope this makes sense…I will keep you posted it how it works!

Here’s what the ends look like.  A2 size.

I glued the panels to the folds and the top Pine Tree Collage die cut glues on top of the last ¼ in. fold on both sides.

I used the snowmen from the Snowmen and cloud from the Snowmen Snowglobe die.

Aren’t the cute!  I used Sakura Black and White glaze pens to embellish them and the green, red and brown are Copic markers.

The blue background is Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink that I brushed on with TE blending brushes. Spattered with water, white and black acrylic inks

Season’s Greetings message is from the new Christmas Greetings stamp set.  So many neat sentiments and varying sizes too in this set.

That’s it for today…thank you all so much for your cards and emails and comments.  I had no idea how much family and friends carry you when you’re suffering. I appreciate it.  Makes me teary talking about it and I know if you were here you’d cry with me!  ❤

Memory Box Spirit of Christmas…

Hi everyone! Here it is a beautiful day in October and I’m inside typing up a blog post!  My priorities. lol

I have stamps that need used though, so it’s so easy to keep busy and forget to get a supper plan! oops!

Today I’m using two stamps from the new Spirit of Christmas stamp set and coordinating die set.  The Poinsettia and the sentiment.

I stamped the poinsettia, leaves and berries (from the Holiday Greenery stamp set) in Memento Tuxedo Black on Copic X-press it cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I die cut the poinsettia and cut the leaves and berries by hand, then I colored them.  I used the R24 and 27,  YG93 and 95, T7 for the shadow.

I cut a x-press cardstock white panel 4 x 5 ¼ inches and stamped some branches from the Winter Greenery stamp set in Olive ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Spirit of Christmas set in Lawn Fawn Lobster ink.   I love this set… the perfect sentiment for the inside is in the set also.  “Wishing you a Merry Christmas”.  I like how the Copic x-press it cardstock takes the stamp pad ink.

I made an A2 card base from Taylored Expressions Sweet Basil cardstock. Taped on the white panel and mounted the leaves and berries and poinsettia with foam mounting tape.

That’s it… fun to color!  Holler if you have any questions!

Memory Box Snowmen Snowglobe and Snowglobe Backer…

I’m back with two more snowglobe tags/ornaments!  These two are glitteriffic and SO CUTE!

I took a phone picture with my hand in it so you’d get an idea of the size of these delightful things!

Pictures do not do them justice… they are just so cute!

I used all four of the new dies for this Snowman one.

Close up of the snowgirl!  I used the Santa hat and ear muffs for her… colored the glitter card with Copics.

I grabbed what I thought was a clear glaze pen and colored over some of the pieces only to find out when they dried it was the white glaze pen! lol  It left them looking snowy and I used them anyway.  I used a black glaze pen on Frosty’s hat.

Close up of Frosty snowguy! Such personality!

Close up of the layers…

The NEW Glitter pads from Memory Box are SO beautiful and die cut wonderfully!  I die cut with blades up and one printer paper shim on top of the cutting plate when I ran through my Big Shot.

Next up, the penguin takes the show.  He’s from the Snowglobe Backer die. Now that I look at my pictures, I wish I’d put some text on this one… like ‘let it snow’!  I think I will do that! ❤  Or a teeny heart on his chest… oh my… why do the ideas come after pictures! ha

I copic colored his feet and nose…his eyes are little black gems…his body and hat are glitter cardstock and his black outline body is black cardstock colored with a black glaze pen.

I used all four dies again for the layers…silver glitter cardstock.

I just realized I haven’t written in the finished size yet!  They are all 3 inches wide and 4 ⅛ inches tall.  So adorable!

I’m excited to see how they sparkle hanging on the Christmas tree!

A closer look at the layers again…

A lot of pictures today…hope they all loaded for you and you get the idea of how special they are! A keepsake to get out every year!

I’ll link up everything below…thank you for shopping through my links.  I really appreciate it.

I changed to paying for my blog awhile back so I don’t have other advertisements in my posts…that should really help if you’re looking at my blog on your phone.  I also have to pay monthly for the link up service for products I use and it takes so much time to take pictures, write posts and make product lists.  So I’m here working for you!

More to come…Christmas is my favorite and it’s August already my dear cardmaking friends!  EEK!  Don’t panic, don’t panic. lol

I’ll be back soon with more sparkle and shine! ❤

Memory Box Snowglobe Backer, Radiant Snowglobe and Cabin Snowglobe…

Hi everyone!  Back with #2 in the Snowglobe series with these new dies.  Look at this cute deer…such personality! lol The beautiful sky…pretty trees… I love it so much!

I have a lot of pictures of this one… showing the layers …

I die cut the trees from scraps of TE Pea Pod cardstock and glued them on top of the TE Toffee cardstock Radiant Snowglobe die cut.

I die cut the Cabin Snowglobe die twice, once in woodgrain and once in Toffee.  I cut the trees off the woodgrain die cut.

I die cut a little piece of TE Pineapple cardstock to get the stock… I used a ⅝ in. circle punch. A winter day without snow!  We have a lot of those in Iowa. hehe

Here’s the back… I just use scotch tape to tape it in because the backer die cuts it out.  On the inside the Radiant Snowglobe die cut in TE Sprinkles cardstock, covers up the tape.

So sweet… I love how these hang!

From the side again. I folded these forward at the score lines instead of backwards like the snowglobe I posted yesterday.

So be sure to click home and scroll down to see my two previous posts.  The first is a video showing how they go together so easily!

Holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for clicking over and I’ll be back with two more!  I might put both of them in one post. hehe  I have two cards ready to post too… I hope you don’t get tired of me! lol

Lawn Fawn On the Beach Birthday Card….

It’s Friday and somebody’s birthday somewhere! haha  This card was for a grandson that has a hammock in the backyard and loves it!  As close to a beach as you can get in Iowa! lol

Some faux sand and water on this card but the sky is real! We’ve had some beautiful blue skies the last month.   I inked them all with Distress Oxide inks.  I haven’t figured out the trick to doing spatters over oxide inks, to keep the spatters smallish.  I even let the ink dry before I spattered.   The kinda black spots were Hero Arts liquid watercolor paint, I’ll have to try something else for black next time. If you have a good black method, let me know!  Holler if you want to know what colors I used and I”ll try to remember.

So fun… the ‘shades’!

Here’s what I used… shopping links in the right sidebar if you want to look for these products at Scrapbook.com (15% off cardmaking supplies today) or Simon Says Stamp.  Thank you!  I appreciate it!  I have stamp club today and I’m almost ready…I made some card kits for the gals to make up.  It’ll be fun but there went my time! hehe

It feels good to be using some of the stash!  So I challenge you to make a card with your stash before you go shopping!  I have two more birthday cards to show and I’m working on a poppystamps Christmas card!  It’s really turning out cool, if I do say so myself so stay tuned! ttul!
