Simon Says Stamp KISSES January Release!

Hi everyone! Lots of paper hearts, hugs and kisses coming your way! Check out this NEW release at Simon Says Stamp!

Here’s the NEW stamp set that was sent to me to show off!  It’s called Swoopy Flowers!  I don’t know if I did it justice but I gave it a good try, coloring with Copic Sketch Markers!

I stamped and cut the images out on the Scan and Cut but there are dies to coordinate! There’s also a stencil for coloring!  Fun!

I used the R80s, the YR00s and the G20s. 

I made the rectangle frame with Waffleflower A2 Layers and Additional A2 Layers die sets. 

Die cut black cardstock with the smaller rectangle and the white with a larger rectangle so it’s picture framed or matted like a picture!

I love this look!  I did it with a circle die also and I’ll show that card in the next day or two.

The Happy Valentines Day sentiment is from the Love and Valentines Word Mix 2 stamp set.  I stamped in clear embossing ink, sprinkled with Lawn Fawn White Embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Some Cupcake Doodlebug Sprinkles for a little embellishment.

Other sentiments that would’ve worked here are from the Love Greetings Mix… fun.  I’ll link it below even though I’m not showing it today. 

I hope you can dash over and check out the new release.  It’s a colorful Valentine season I’m sure!  Have fun making some paper art today! 

Linking to some challenges…

4 Cards with the NEW poppystamps and Memory Box Releases…

Hi everyone!  How are you?  December was a wild month for me, glorious but busy! ❤  Here I am, back on the blog!  lol

Big Hugs to you and I hope you had a Beautiful Christmas and are looking forward to a happy cardmaking New Year!  I am!

I love hearts!  No surprise since my blog name!  This NEW Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame from poppystamps makes me happy!  I cut strips from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock paper pad scraps.  I loved that I was able to use some of the strips that are left after making A2 size cards!  It was really easy to use the different tones to inlay the hearts and I love how it turned out!  YAY!

Two lengths of 2 inch Scor-tape on the back to hold the hearts in place.

I kept it really clean and simple because I didn’t want to cover up the hearts!

For the sentiment I used the poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Dies from the Spring release.

I added some brown twine to finish it off and adhered it to a white A2 size cardbase with my favorite thin mounting tape.

This NEW poppystamps release has three coordinating products in it. My first card uses the die, my second the stencil.  There’s also a Hot Foil Plate but I didn’t get that used for this post.

Now I’m thinking I should’ve embossed this next card’s panel with the die after I stenciled!  I liked it so well after I inked it though, I was happy! lol

 

Here I used the NEW poppystamps Criss Cross Heart Stencil that coordinates with the Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame die.

I used the NEW poppystamps Vintage Scalloped Heart dies on top of the NEW Memory Box Pinpoint Burst Heart die.

I used watercolor papers that I’d painted with Fired Brick and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks.

The LOVE sentiment is the NEW Love You Gallery Script die from Memory Box.

Let’s Connect is from poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp and die set.

From cute to cuter!  The hearts needed some critters!  I love the cute fox and beaver additions!

I couldn’t help but add a little strip of one of the plaids I haven’t used yet from the Memory Box Jolly Christmas 6×6 pad  I love this one for Valentines!

 

I used two whittle stamp sets for the sentiment on this card…Whittle Everyday for the all you need part and Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments for the word fox.

I trimmed the Whittle Tree Border die to get the three trees.

Whittle Happy Fox and Whittle Sleepy Fox are die cut in white, colored with Copics and edges inked with inky ink blending brushes.

Black multiliner in the crease lines.

 

 

Beavers are always popular for Valentines, have you noticed?  I guess they go around stealing heart! hoho

I used the Whittle Beaver for this card…die cut in white and colored and ink the same as the fox.


I had to embellish it with one of the NEW poppystamps Teardrop Butterflies!  What charming images they are!

The NEW poppystamps Vintage Scalloped Heart used again here with Red and White cardstocks.

Sentiment from Contempo Greetings again, white heat embossed on Memory Box Black glossy cardstock.

 

All four cards are A2 size.

I hope I didn’t forget too much!  Email me if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I still have some Christmas to post and some birthdays too!  eek!  And January is a big birthday month for our family.

I hope I’m not the only one shaking my head that 2022 is already moving right a long into 2023!  I have so many things I want to make…is that you too? ❤

Simon Says Stamp Warm Christmas Card….super fun!

Hi everyone!  If you even have time to read my post on this busy week of being thankful!  I can tell you I’m thankful for a warm Thanksgiving!  I’m gonna head out and wash a few windows as soon as I finish this post! lol

I’m sharing my card for the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle release today!  How cute is this delightful tree and snowman!  I love this set!  I used one more image on the inside…I remembered to take a picture so it’s down below, keep scrolling! hoho  Oh, there’s a relaxing Santa in the set also but I didn’t get him into the composition! lol

Click on the picture ^ to shop the release…beautiful products to create with!

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide ink…tore off the bottom sand part and covered the water and sky with vellum.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Sunbeam Frame die in white and glued it over the top.

Trimmed down the sand and glued it to the bottom of the rays!

I’m tickled with how it turned out but if I was doing it again, I would cut another white die cut and ink blend it and fit the pieces into the top sunbeam frame die cut.   How cute!  ok – I love it!  lol

I colored with Copics…that always makes me happy…just an all around fun stamp set to create with!  There is a coordinating die set also!  yay!

Here’s the surprise on the inside!  You know what?!  This flamingo needs a red gem on the end of it’s beak! lol

Super cute!  A2 size card.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week and preparing for time with family and friends.  We’ll all gather tomorrow at one of our daughter’s.  Can’t wait!

Simon Says Stamp has some specials and a beautiful new card kit and so much more!  Have fun shopping in your spare time!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog… all the best to you and yours!

Birch Press Design Snowy Circle Layer Set – Two Cards

Hi everyone! I had a little fun with ink blending Distress Oxides and Dies for this A2 size card!

Kitsch Flamingo stamping for the snow and edging with a bit of Picked Raspberry added on the perimeters.

The snow scatter is from an older BPD Celestial Waves stamp set.

I used all three layers of the NEW Birch Press Designs Snowy Circle Layer set.  I inked Layer B with a little bit of the pinks.

Skates are super easy to put together! They’re a NEW Memory Box die that I used already a couple weeks ago with a sled and a few other new dies.  I loved using them as an embellishment on this card.  A little knit cro-sheen for lacing them up.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I did finish it!  I stamped it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink in the MISTI with the ‘May the JOY you find this Christmas follow you throughout the year’ sentiment stamp from the NEW poppystamps Christmas Sparkle set.

I got up early this morning to make this pink card!  I’d already thought it through and it worked!  yay!

Linking to some Christmas Challenges…

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenges – Anything Christmas Goes

Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge – Anything Goes Christmas

Winter Wonderland Challenge – Let It Snow

I made the next card the other day using the same Snowy Circle set but adding the New Memory Box Nested Globe Bases die to turn it into a snowy snowglobe!

Here I used the NEW Birch Press Design Felicity Snowflakes dies and some Fairy Drops for the background.

I used some Lindy’s Magicals powders to ‘paint’ the snowy circles.  I die cut from Smooth Bristol cardstock, spritzed with water and tapped on the powders.  The top layer I just painted with the white and water.

I love the sparkle/shimmer it gives the die cuts!

The JOY on both of my cards is trimmed from the NEW BPD Find Joy and Outline die.  I just used the JOY part.

The foil cardstock I used is from the Memory Box 6×6 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  This pad has metallic and pearl cardstocks.

On the inside of this second card, I used the same sentiment set but different stamps.  This one says ‘May your Christmas truly Sparkle’ and ‘With much Love’.  I stamped with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink in the Misti and it turned out beautiful.  To bad I didn’t take a picture of it! 

I didn’t try this for a shaker card but I’m thinking it’d be really pretty made up as one!

Thank you for sticking with me for this long post!  I appreciate you stopping by!

Memory Box Layered Polar Bear Snowglobe Card…

Hi everyone! There’s a chill in the air so time for a polar bear!  This guy is so cute enjoying the polar weather! lol

More NEW dies from Memory Box.  Layered Polar Bear, Alpine Snowflakes, Layered Birds, Nested Globe Bases and the scarf from Tall Bundled Snowman.

So fun.  I love dies that can be mixed and watched for a variety of designs!

I used a scrap from one of last year’s MB paper pads, Woodsy Plaid.

The sentiment is from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas Greetings clear stamp and die set.

I used the thin mounting tape that I like so well.  You get just enough dimension but still easily mailed.

A beautiful sentiment from the NEW Sweet Christmas sentiment clear stamp set.

The check pattern paper is from the same paper pad.

He’s cute! Black Glossy cardstock for his nose and eyes and a little ink on his tummy.

Copic on his paws. The gray background is one of the pieces I did on a Saturday afternoon following Jill Foster’s video. I had so much fun making them!  HERE is the video if you want to make some!

I couldn’t get my camera to focus right on this guy so I ended up with phone pictures. Sorry for my hand being in them. ugh.

thank you for visiting! I appreciate it and I will be back soon!

Back To School Box Card…

Hi everyone! I’m going to work on getting some stuff I’ve made for grands posted!  We’ll see how it goes. 

Last week one of my older sisters passed away, funeral was Saturday.  So hard but good to visit with family and friends I haven’t seen for a long time.  So I’m behind posting for Memory Box too but I’ll be making this week!

I made these three box cards for our three grands that attend school.  Our others are home educated. 

It was fun to use the library cards that I bought from Starlitstudio.net. I love to read so of course I needed them in my stash!  They worked out perfectly in these box cards!

The box card is a file I cut with my Scan n Cut from Lori Whitlock HERE

My Scan n Cut doesn’t print so if you want to print the numbers you have to get a pdf by emailing for it… or I can send you what they sent me.

The paper bags I put money in are also from Starlitstudio.net

The library card and the bag slide in the box, then it collapses and will fit into an envelope! So cute!

I have some post it notes that are all over sticky on the back so I die cut them and stamped the sentiment for the bag.  The push pin is part of the card file.

It was fun to make something different! 

I can’t remember now if I inked the apples or colored them with Copics! 

I used a Lawn Fawn alphabet set for their names, a date stamp and another sentiment on the library card.  I printed the grandma and grandpa.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a beautiful week…we’re trying not to blow away… so windy this Fall here in Iowa.  Before long the leaves will be dropping and blowing all over the place!

Here’s a pretty picture of the bluffs in the Missouri River area of Iowa…

ttul!
