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

Simon Says Stamp Release….Send Happiness…3 Cards!

Happy Monday to you!  Simon Says Stamp has a new release and they sent me this flower die to play with…I was already doing napkin die cutting so I went ahead and did this new Etched Flower die the same way!  Scroll down to THIS post for a link to the technique/how to video.

I stamped the background for the flower die with the tone on tone look and the SSS Damask Background cling stamp.  I die cut three panels, a white one, the stamped one and a dark pink one with the SSS Frames die, then inlaid pieces from each and taped them together on the back side.  I mounted this panel with Mounting tape.

The sentiment is a stamp from the SSS Sending Sympathy clear stamp set and die cut with the SSS Stitched Rectangles die set.  I had to recut it to get it the right size.

 

The NEW Etched flower die cuts two connected flowers…so I had this single flower left over and parts from the Frames die cuts so I made another card!

The sentiment is also from the Sending Sympathy stamp set.  I taped the pieces together on the back side of the panel and used foam mounting tape to mount it to the cardbase.

My third card…I had an idea but this isn’t anywhere near what I was trying to do! lol  I like it though! lol

I debated whether to stick with a thank you or make it a sympathy card… it could easy go for any occasion!

There’s the NEW Speckled Egg Distress ink is what I used on the white Etched Flower die cuts this time… peeled paint for the stems.

Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad for the three papers.

A thank you stamp and some cotton cord and I stuck it all to a white cardbase.

All three cards are A2 size.

Have fun checking out this new release and thank you for shopping through my links!  I appreciate your support so much!

poppystamps Leafy Garden Border Die, Napkin Die Cutting and Painting Technique…

Hi everyone! June is flying by just like these butterflies!  I had so much fun revisiting the napkin die cutting and painting technique by Memory Box owner, Dave.

You’ll find the video HERE.

I did it just like he did except this time I used Distress Ink refills for the paint.  I used a drop of refill ink and drops of water, sometimes more, sometimes less.

Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss.

I used Gansai Tambi gold watercolor for the gold accents, I’ll link everything below.

The A2 cardbase doubles as the background.  I inked it with the NEW Speckled Egg Distress Oxide with a little Tumbled Glass Oxide brushed on also.

Then water droplets, dried with the heat tool, then spattered with White Distress Oxide Spray.  I just unscrew the bottle and tap the ink off the tube with a paintbrush a few times.  I dried again with the heat tool because I wanted to finish putting the card together.

I used the thin mounting squares cut in half to mount the frame die cut and a few behind the leaves.

The sentiment from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set is heat embossed on black TE Oreo cardstock and cut out with the Scan and Cut machine.

I’m linking to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes

Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge for June – Ink blending

Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies

This card is perfect for this time of year!  We’ve had plenty of rain and everything is so GREEN!  The sky is so blue! Still no hydrangeas on my three bushes though. hmmmm  I hope you don’t tell me I have to go talk to them! lol

Fun to be back sharing with you… I have a couple more cards coming soon! Thank you for clicking over!

Memory Box Birthday Rose Corner Shape Card…

Hi everyone! I’ve been coloring with Distress ink refills and water again.  So fun… I stamped on watercolor paper…MB has watercolor paper now and I keep forgetting to use it!  I have to remember!

I die cut with the coordinating die… then I partial cut into the front of my card base so it’d be a shape card of sorts!

Here’s a look at the inside so you can see.

I stamped the Happy Birthday from the new poppystamps Friendship and Kindness stamp set.  This happy birthday is part of a larger sentiment but I cut it apart.  just make one cut and so you can fit them back together precisely.

I love how this looks in real life when you open it.

I used Peeled Paint and a teeny bit of Pine Needles,  Milled Lavender and a teeny bit of Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet is the pink,  Antique Linen and Vintage Photo for the roses and berries.

I spattered with gold paint. The cardstock is Taylored Expressions Pink Champagne… I’ll link it up below.

An A7 size card that’s light and flat and will mail for one stamp!  YAY!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy stamp shopping… so many NEW good ones to color!  Beautiful dies, embossing folders, washi tape and pattern paper too!  oh my!  hehe

Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a new Memory Box stamp and die set card to share today… just because.  Isn’t that a pretty script?  It’s hard to believe it’s Memorial Day weekend.  It looks like it’ll warm up here but still cloudy.  We’re getting anxious for some sunshine!  I guess the sunshine today is this bright Picked Raspberry Distress Ink color that I painted with!

I stamped the new wreath on watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. I die cut with the coordinating die, then I watercolored with regular Distress Ink pad refills.  I just put a drop of the refill on my craft mat and pick it up with a wet paintbrush.  I did put water on the paper first so it was wet on wet.

I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled paint, Peacock Feathers and a little bit of Mowed Lawn ink refills for coloring the wreath.

I die cut white cardstock twice and used that to layer the wreath for a little depth instead of foam mounting tape.

I used Taylored Expressions Confetti Cake cardstock for the background square adhered to a white top fold cardbase. My card is 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have some peonies in your life.  I’m glad I had these to color!

Spring Birthday Card with Distress Ink Coloring…

It’s been some time since I colored with Distress Ink Pad Refills.  I got the notion last week or was it the week before?!  ugh… time gets away from me.  Anyway, I finally finished her over the weekend and finally got some pictures taken to post.

The image is from hÄnglar Wings in Sweden. The stamps I own are unmounted rubber but they do have clear stamps now also!  So cute! I stamped her with Ranger Archival ink on Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper.

I color skin with Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo.  Her coat and hat are PIcked Raspberry and Dusty Concord.  Her jeans are Faded Jeans.  Her hair is Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

I used a Hello Bluebird die for the tree background.  The grass die is from Lawn Fawn.  The little leaves are from an old CC Designs die that I cut up and glued on.

The sentiments are from Taylored Expressions Sentiment Strip stamps and die system.  Pretty cool and fun messages!

I hope she makes you smile!  Thanks for stopping by!

poppystamps Cottage Window Scene Card…


Hi cardmakers and friends…welcome to my Country Winter Wonderland on a card post today!

I pulled out some scene dies from last year to use with this NEW poppystamps Cottage Window die. The house is from the NEW poppystamps Village Houses die and I embellished the card with the NEW poppystamps Holly Outline die.

This could easy be a Winter thank you card or any occasion card for after Christmas!

I left the holly cut in the die, turned it over and inked it through the holes in the die, similar to stenciling… pouncing and adding color with the mini ink blending tools. Fun to do something a little different.

I stamped the sentiments from the Memory Box Mistletoe Swag stamp set using the Precision Press Advanced Stamping Tool.

For the scene behind the window I used poppystamps Open Hillside and Sloping Hillside dies.  There are so many Memory Box or poppystamps dies that would work though. YES!

The two tree pieces are glued together flat and the house is glued together and then glued to the scene flat.  Then using mounting tape around the window frame I adhered the scene pieces to the window, then I added another layer of mounting tape to the frame to stick it to the A2 cardbase.  It will still go through the mail for one stamp, it’s not to thick. 😀

I added the Holly Outline die cut with mounting tape also, just one layer though.   That’s it!  I really love this! I didn’t spray it all sparkly or frosty but you sure could!  I debated whether to or not! lol  I wish you could see it in person!

Thank you all for stopping by today!  It’s so fun to show and tell!  I hope it inspires you and if you ever want to send me pictures of what you make or link me up if you’re posting, I love to see other’s show and tell too!  I love inspiration!

Take care and have a beautiful, thankful week! I am thankful for you!
