poppystamps Cat Collage Card, Whittle Creatures Card and Jack O Lantern Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s Black, Orange and Purple season!  But isn’t this black NEW Cat Collage amazing die cut in Memory Box black glossy cardstock!  I love the thickness of it….I use a piece of copy paper folded in half for a shim when I die cut it.

Memory Box NEW Happy Halloween Posh Script die cut directly in the glossy card front panel then an orange die cut inlaid into it.  Be sure to keep the centers of the letters!

An easy alternative to gluing!  I put scor-tape on the back side, flip it over and inlay the die and letter centers. I use scor-tape a lot!

I had a scrap of brayered cardstock that wasn’t good enough to make the keep pile.  It worked perfectly for die cutting the background for the cat and the windows of the NEW poppystamps Twisted Houses die!

A2 size card.

Next up is a cute, cute card using the NEW poppystamps Whittle Creatures die set.

Aren’t they cute?  oh, I already said that! lol  They’ve got personality!

I die cut in white and copic colored.  So easy because the only little pieces are the faces. I put a little piece of scor-tape on the backs, then insert the little pieces with a pick up tool. Works great!

I decided to go postal!  Memory Box Postage Square Layers for the white layer, Stitched Square Layers for the bluish green layer.  I had to cut the black layer with a paper trimmer.

The broom is from the NEW Whittle Witch die.

Then I needed words!  I landed on this poppystamps Marzipan Greetings clear set.  A bunch of fun sentiments in this set.  Love it!

Mini Slimline size card.

My next card is CAS or QAE!

Mini Slimline size card again using the NEW poppystamps Jack O Lantern Frame die.

I die cut it in TE candycorn cardstock.  Colored with copics, the branches brown and the leaves green, coloring right over the orange cardstock.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Boo Pie Script die in Memory Box black glossy cardstock.  So fun!  A smiling Jack O Lantern just trying to scare you! ha!

I have TWO more Halloween cards to show you tomorrow!  Then….guess what?!  More NEW coming!  Be watching!

Thank you for clicking over and making it through my long post! I kinda got carried away with a three day cardmaking marathon this week. eek! I didn’t mean to scare you! lol

Simon Says Stamp/Memory Box STAMPtember Collaboration!

Welcome to my blog, it’s that time of year! STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp and a collaboration with Memory Box! I have two cards to share…

The stamp set has beautiful botanical images and sentiments! I hope you will love it too!

Beautiful images to color!  I used Copic Sketch Markers for my cards today. G21, 24, 28, 29 for the greens. R24, 37, 39 for the berries.

There’s a coordinating die for the set also.  I didn’t have it so I used my scan n cut to cut it out.

I always love coloring the reds and greens for Christmas.

I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI and Ranger Archival Black Ink. These stamps stamp beautifully!

Both of my cards are A2 size.

The next card is an Autumn card…

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers again.  I loved coloring these images… very easy open spaces which would work with all coloring mediums. E11, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19 for the flower.  YG91, 93, 95, 97 for the leaves. YR02, YR18, E07 for the berries.

I’ll link up below the other products I used on these two cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you click away, be sure to come back and click through my link again and I’ll get credit at no expense to you!  I appreciate it so much!

Enjoy STAMPtember!

Spellbinders Blooming Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m feeling festive on this second Friday of August already!  This is such a pretty hot foil plate set! Easy and fast to add some touches of color too!

I used the Plaid Tidings Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on the top layer.  While I was deciding what I was going to do for this card, I also just embossed this plate through my machine… it worked great!

After I foiled the Plaid, I die cut one of the Essential Arches Dies in the panel.  I used mounting tape to raise it up on the cardbase.

I hot foiled a sentiment from the Christmas Magic Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set.  I haven’t tried embossing these yet but I want to.  I hope it works!

The smallest die in the Precision Layering Mini Slimline B die set works perfect for cutting out these sentiments! YAY!

A2 size card…one more for the stash!

That’s all there is to it!  Holler if you have any questions!  Have a wonderful weekend!

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!

Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up High Five Birthday Card…

Two more cute pop up cards!  The last two for this round of family birthdays! These critters are having a grand time celebrating!  Today is Corrin’s 12th birthday and the other is for Cedryk who will be 10 later this month.  They grow up so fast!

I die cut Happy Birthday in blue and backed it with a white die cut, then added three clouds to the back.  I love how that turned out with the balloons! (I used clouds from a couple companies)

Close up… I stamped, die cut and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Our oldest daughter has a big, nice tramp and the kids have so much fun on it!  We were over there the other day and after they jumped awhile they moved to the slides!  They greased them with dish soap and soon there was a competition happening! So funny!

close up… I did different balloon colors on this one.

I used Doodlebug pattern paper for the pop up and TE cardstock for the grass.

Here’s my phone picture…shows the detail of the giant Happy Birthday better! I know I already said this but the clouds! ❤

 

Thank you for clicking over for the backyard playtime…reminds me of a meme I saw on instagram… we had some good times didn’t we! Bug bites and all!

BBQ Platform Pop up Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  We had a fun holiday weekend with a super muggy 4th!  whoa… super nice days and then boom…super high humidity and high temp.  Definitely know it’s Summer!

One of our son-in-law’s is a great cook!  So I made this card just for him.

I have two more pictures and I’ll post them.  If I had this card still I would retake the pictures because the back sign is blurry…f stop too low! lol I was in a hurry to get to the party! Good thing I’d snapped a phone picture!

 

I colored the stamped and die cut images with Copic Sketch Markers.  Then assembled the card just like the Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up video.  The Boss of the BBQ sentiment is from a discontinued Taylored Expressions set.

 

So fun…now it’s time for lunch!  This card makes me hungry!

One more birthday platform pop up to post, then it’s back to Memory Box cards!

Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up Birthday Beach Card…

I have a few of these interactive cards to share with you in the next few days.  The kids all have them now.  I forgot to take a picture to show that it fits in an envelope but it does!

I used some Lawn Fawn stamp sets for the images and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

I sure had fun coloring these.  I used Copic Sketch markers and a little white gel pen.

I had to make the sun because I didn’t have a big enough sun die.  I used a Memory Box slimline die and stitch circle die.

I use pattern paper for the interactive platform die cut.  It works better if it’s not a heavyweight cardstock, in my opinion.

I found a yo yo stamp in a Paper Smooches stamp set.  This card is for Henry and he’s quite the yo yo expert!  I love it!

Holler if you have any questions!  My last photo is a phone picture…a little bit different color wise.

Simon Says Stamp Let’s Chill Release…

Welcome to my blog today…feel the sand between your toes!  Some of you can I bet!  I’m feeling the chill but it’s in the house! lol

I have the opportunity today to post for Simon Says Stamp Let’s Chill Release using the new ‘Let’s Get Away’ clear stamp set. Lots of great stuff in this release!  It’s always fun to make Summer scenes so I stamped them up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers.

Then I made my background by stamping the wave lines stamp with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink, ink blending it above the waves and painting it in between the waves of the stamped image.  I smeared some of the splatters so I had to go in with a damp paint brush to fix them. ugh.

I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink pads and ink blending brushes for the beach below the waves.

I made the drink into lemonade, personalized to me!

Fun stamp set with several fun sentiments!

Take a look at the rest of the release HERE and thanks again for stopping by!  I appreciate it and hope it helps you stay cool!

Platform Pop Up Hat’s Off To YOU Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s a happy time of year for so many kids! I made several grad congrats cards but this is the only one I took pictures of.

I used the popular Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up die set!  I have made so many of these already!  It’s so fun and easy too!

I used an older Avery Elle stamp and die set for the images and the congrats, graduate strip is from Taylored Expressions. I’ll link to a newer version of the images below.

Super fun images… I didn’t think to get a picture of it flat.  It fit into an A6 envelope.

Because I used Copic Sketch Markers to color, I die cut an extra piece of white cardstock to put on the back of the images to cover up the coloring.  It worked great for the hats because then I could sandwich the acetate strips inbetween the colored hat and the plain hat die cuts.

Here’s the back… I used a two tone 12×12 bo bunny 65# cardstock for the base and the add on backdrop.  The colors are kinda weird in the pictures but they matched much better IRL!

I stamped the sentiments from the set with Ranger Archival Black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping in today! I’m off to make some more flower cards!

Hi everyone! I LOVE cute!  I don’t make it near as much as I used to but I still love cute and coloring!

I used paper from my ancient stash…

The fence is from poppystamps.  Colored with Copic Sketch markers.

Thank you for clicking over! I’ll be back soon with NEW from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Design!!!  You can see the new at Starlitstudio.net and Simon Says Stamp!

poppystamps Potpourri Flower, Freestyle Smile, Whittle Snail Card…

You’ve got mail!  It’s always so fun to get mail! Here’s mail and a smile from this cute blushing snail! lol 

I die cut the NEW Potpourri Flower Set in white and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I didn’t look at any pictures for coloring…flying by the seat of my pants again! haha

I layered the NEW ps Penelope Pinpoint Frame on top of Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue cardstock A2 size panel.  Then I adhered those two, to a purple from the Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad. 

First I laid the flowers out down the left side of the panel from the top.  Took a picture of them with my phone and put the snail down to see how it looked, it was too close to the right side of the card!  I didn’t like it there!  So I picked the flowers up with a piece of press and seal and reversed them to the right side bottom corner instead.  Much better! 

Then I die cut the NEW ps Freestyle Smile all in white, it was ok, so I die cut the top in black, too bold, so I die cut it in purple, nah, so I die cut it in yellow and that was it!  I’m a terrible decision maker! lol 

The sentiment is from ps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set.  Stamped in the MISTI with versamark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I glued the flowers down, then the snail and sentiments with mounting tape.  Then I pulled up a couple of the flowers to put one on her head and one right close to the body. 

I added yellow Fairy Gems last. 

I forgot to talk about the snail!  It’s die cut in kraft cardstock and edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.  I went over the mouth, eyes and added eyelashes with a micro black fine point pen. 

It’s a bright card and more fun in real life.  I like it!  That’s saying a lot of me cuz I don’t love yellow and purple! lol

It’s a rainy, dreary day here so we need bright!  Have a good one anyway!  ttul!

Memory Box Floral Birthday Card and poppystamps Floral Miss You Card…

Hi everyone! I did a little flower coloring with Copics Monday. Colorbook therapy!  It’s been so nice here, I hope the flowers don’t come up to soon!

I started with an A2 size cardbase. Topped it with a panel of the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock.  It’s heavyweight and die cut so nice for the Happy Birthday sentiment too!

Then I die cut and glued together, three for each side, the NEW Hex Half Pinpoint die.  Don’t you love how it makes the perfect base for the NEW floral dies?!

Here’s a picture of the dies I used and for the flowers and leaves I colored.

Here’s a picture of the Copic Marker colors I used.

It didn’t take a whole lot of cuts!  I was surprised.  After coloring, I used black and white glaze pens to add some accents.

 

Look at this NEW Memory Box stamp set!!!  (Full picture lower in the post)  It matches the font of this Happy Birthday Posh Script die and the Miss you Posh Script die on my next card!  I absolutely love matching fonts for the inside of my cards! ❤

 

This picture I’m trying to show a little of the dimension.  I didn’t use any foam mounting tape and it will still go in the mail under ¼ inch thick for one forever stamp!  YAY! 

My second card for today is just plain floral fun!

The Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Paper pad came out for this card.  I love having 3 shades of each color to coordinate!  It sure saves time digging through cardstock to find matching pieces!

I started with an A2 size kraft cardbase. I die cut the NEW poppy Penelope Pinpoint Frame in white, glued it on.  I die cut the poppy Lattice Plate in white and glued it on.

Next came the NEW super pretty poppy Flower Field Frame die cut in one of the pinks in the Berry Red 6×6 pad and glued on.

Then some Memory Box Fairy Jewels for the flower centers.

Here’s the dies I used for this card…

and here’s the NEW stamp set that matches these posh script dies!  and the Berry Red 6×6 pad.

Haha!  Isn’t she the cutest! Look at that snout!  I added a couple more layers to it. lol  

I added the eyelashes with a color pencil!  I also went over the partial cuts at the ears, eyes, snout and legs with the same color pencil. 

Miss piggy is just one cut and I edged her with a little gathered twigs distress ink so she wouldn’t look too clean! haha  The thought did cross my mind that she’d be super cute in a mud puddle! 

She’s super cute…not sure who I’ll send it to but usually when I type that as soon as I hit publish I think of someone! 

Thank you all for hanging in here for this long post!  I promise not to make long a habit! lol

Happy Valentines Day!  Here I am at the last minute sharing one more heart card!

I die cut the new poppystamps Tall Curved Heart Arch two dies from white cardstock and colored both with Copic Sketch Markers.  R24, G82, G85, E42 and E44.

I love this sentiment from poppystamps Marzipan Greetings.  I inked with Versamark in the Misti and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I die cut two poppystamps Tall Curve Background from a piece of Simple Stories woodgrain pattern paper and layered them on the poppystamps Oval Fold Frame die cut in Memory Box 6×6 Garland Stripes and Dots pattern paper pad.

I colored a scrap of white with R24 and die cut some small hearts using the small heart die that comes with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die. I glued them to the oval that is a die in the Oval Fold Frame set.

It’s an A2 size card that should mail easily with one postage stamp.

It turned out fun!  I always love kraft and paper hugs! ❤

Stay tuned!  More NEW coming! ttul!

Doodlebug Winter Wonderland Snowglobe Mini Shape Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  A little more snow here today so a good day to post a cute little snowglobe card I made for one of our grands birthday.

These super cute images are from the Doodlebug Winter Wonderland stamp set and coordinating die set.

The card looks big in my photos but it’s really only 3 x 3 inches!  ❤  The images are small but so cute and easy to color.  I used Copic sketch markers. The largest snowman is 1 ½ inches tall.

I stamped the snowglobe, colored the base, then die cut another snowglobe for the card back.  Scored the back at the top so it would open…glued it above the score line to the card front.

I love how it turned out… charming! It would be a cute tag too.

Hope it made you smile!  I’m going to link it to the #SnowmenOfJanuary event on social media right now.

Thank you for stopping by!
