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.

Thank you for clicking over again today!  I’ll link the products I used below. ❤

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

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a creative weekend if you can!  ❤

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!  ❤
