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!
