poppystamps Perfect Posies Bouquet Card…

Hi everyone! Another floral card to share today.  I need to glue pink paper flowers to my three hydrangea bushes!  No flowers on them yet!

I die cut the poppystamps NEW Perfect Posies Bouquet die two times in white.  I inked up one in green distress oxide colors using an ink blending brush and the other I trimmed off some of the flowers to ink up in pink distress oxide colors.

There are a few blooms on this Posies die that match up with the blooms in the NEW poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set, so I used the two smaller sizes of those for pink blooms.

I cut an A2 size panel of white cardstock, die cut it with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate, then embossed it with the Memory Box Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder.  The dots make it look like a bee has been buzzing around! lol

I used a white Posca pen to color the little green blooms white on the green Perfect Posies Bouquet die cut.

Memory Box has come out with a lot of Foil and Cut die sets this time.  This is a new to me technique but I’m getting the hang of it.  I really like how pretty and elegant they make a card sentiment.

For this card I used the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings 1 Foil and Cut die set.  Gold foil on white cardstock.  I love having a die to just cut one sentiment.  I’m not one to make a bunch of stuff ahead.  I just make as I go along to go with what I’m making.  It’d be fun to do a survey and find out how many make a bunch of elements and then sit down and make cards.  I wish I could.  It overwhelms me to have too much to choose from.  Interesting… I bet there’d be a lot of creative ways to go about making cards!

There’s a NEW Memory Box Intricate Mini Butterflies die so I had to add one to my card.  I die cut it in white and inked it with Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide ink.

I added some Fairy Drops and it was done.  YAY!  It’s kinda vintagey looking in a modern way!

I can’t believe it’s Friday already!  Hope you’re getting some Summer things done…eek!  It’s time I did! lol

Memory Box Charlotte Blooms and More…

Are you a fan of lime?  This is one of the sheets from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad!  It turned out fun!

Love this sentiment set from Poppystamps too! I stamped it directly on the panel, then on white and cut out the banner and mounted it over the stamped banner. Say It Big is the stamp set and it has coordinating dies too!  Love that!

For this card I die cut the NEW Memory Box Charlotte Blooms dies in white cardstock and with the mini ink blending tool, colored the centers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I die cut the Leaves from the Charlotte set in the same green as the background.

I glued the flowers and leaves directly to the green card panel.  The only thing popped up a bit is the banner.

This is an A6 size card.

The first card I made using the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die set is the one below…I die cut in the yellows from the Memory Box 6×6 Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  The flower centers from the Earth Neutral pad. The leaves from the Lush Green pad.

For the butterfly I used the Memory Box Gloriosa Butterly Duo Outlines die, the smaller one from the set and the underneath butterfly is the NEW Memory Box Ava Butterflies die, die cut from the Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  Fun!  It you use Ava on it’s own, you can fluff up the sections I think.  I still have to try it. lol

I wanted to tie in the foiled New Memory Box Posh Birthday Wishes hot foil and die set so I used the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die cut in Woodsy Plaid 6×6 pad and NEW Polished Foil 6×6 pad.

Kraft cardbase and A2 size.

Birch Press Design Prime Peony Duo Contour Layers Card…

Hi everyone!  This week has zoomed by me! But it’s Peony time of year and a perfect time to showcase this beautiful new die from Birch Press Design.

I watercolored these blooms with the newest set of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens Set A. Die Cut with Strathmore watercolor Brown pad.

Then I added a frame from the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die set.

I ink blended an A2 size panel of Strathmore Best Mixed Media cardstock (the brown pad).  Wow it blends nice.  I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the first time! and Peacock Feathers. I still use the mini round ink blending foams a lot and that’s what I used here.

Hugs is a new hot foil plate and die set from Birch Press Design also.  Hugs Sugar Script is the name of it.

I used silver hot foil and Bazzill Card Shoppe Robin’s Egg for Hugs.

I glued everything flat except for hugs.  It has thin mounting tape on the ends. Starlitstudio has it in stock!  I’ll link below!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it and hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather has been amazing here this week! YAY!

Simon Says Stamp Arched Greens and SALE!

Back again today with a NEW stamp from the latest Simon Says Stamp release

I received the rubber stamp Arched Greens to create with.  The center Arch section is removable!

I stamped it all in the MISTI on Canson XL watercolor paper with regular Distress inks.  I inked up the stamp and spritzed it and stamped it.  I used two different greens and the new prize ribbon blue.

It needed some flowers so I got out the NEW Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers die set.  I die cut in the same watercolor paper and smooshed the cuts into Worn Lipstick Distress Ink that I’d spritzed with water.

I die cut the center out with the Memory Box Nested Globes die… it was a little short so I had to use the mat to keep it from cutting the bottom straight line, then readjust the die to lengthen the cut. SSS does have a die set that coordinates with this stamp!

The sentiment is a new poppystamps hot foil plate and die set with several sentiments.  I’ll link it below too.

I’m linking to some challenge blogs…

Memory Box Bouquet Blooms and Leaves and Butterfly Coterie Collage Card…

Hi and hugs to everyone today!  Memory Box has lots of NEW flower dies and word dies too! I love how this hugs snugged up into the card design!

I started with an A2 cardbase in extra heavyweight kraft cardstock.  Next I die cut the NEW Butterfly Coterie Collage die in a white panel I cut a half inch smaller than A2 width and height.

Then I die cut the Bouquet Blooms and Leaves NEW dies in Canson XL watercolor paper and colored them with Distress reinkers.  I sprayed water on the cuts and then brushed on some of the refill and let it spread, added more until I was happy-ish.  I kinda like the brightness of the colors against the white and kraft!

I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac reinkers.

I die cut the NEW Hugs Daily Script dies in white cardstock and the New Memory Box Black Glossy Heavyweight cardstock.  I really like this glossy black.  I think I say that every post these days! lol

I tied on the jute before I adhered it with thin mounting tape to the kraft cardbase.

There is a stencil that you can buy separately that coordinates with this Butterfly Coterie Collage.  I’m thinking…what to make with them together!

Birch Press Design Flora Plate and Make a Wish Cards…

Hi everyone!  Yikes, it’s Thursday already!  I almost didn’t buy this NEW Saltwater Taffy ink color!  I caved and bought regular, regular refill and oxide.  Sometimes I think I need the sprays but maybe I could make a spray with the refill if I needed to make a mess! haha

I used the ink pad to color my cardstock.  Hammermill Color Copy Smooth 100# Cover is what I used for all the parts of this card. I use it some for copic coloring too.

I inked up two A2 panels, one with Saltwater Taffy and one with Abandoned Coral regular distress and blending brushes and or tools.  Then I did three smaller pieces with  Saltwater Taffy, Abandoned Coral and Bundled Sage.  You can pretty much tell what I die cut with what from my pictures.

I die cut the leaves in the same white from the NEW Memory Box Layered Impatiens die set and inked them up also.  I love these leaves!

The flowers were the waste from cutting layer A, they were white so I inked them too.

It’s a really pretty, feminine color and card in real life! I had to add some pinkish Memory Box Fairy Jewels to the flower centers. 

I made this next card first to get a feel of how the layers looked together.  I hadn’t planned on finishing it at first because, weird colors! lol  Not Spring at all but I like it so I’m gonna throw one picture of it on here! lol 

This is the Flora Plate layers AB and C again with a sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  This is such a gorgeous set!  I love it for front and inside sentiments. 

Holler if you have any questions!  Both cards are A2 size. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box Enchanting Poppy Stems Card…

Hello!  I had the urge to make more of a pastel card yesterday but I also wanted to use the Nested Globes die set and make a shape card.

Well, a long the way, it ended up that the shape, cut to have a fold at the top, from white cardstock that opens to reveal the message inside. Then I decided to mount it on an A2 Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die cut from one of the lightest greens in the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Fun for a change! I stamped the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  It’s a gorgeous stamp set! I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide for this in the MISTI, inked and stamped 3 or 4 times.

I used the smallest Nested Globes die to stamp ‘Hello’ on. The HELLO stamp is from the Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath stamp set.

I die cut the Memory Box NEW Enchanting Poppy Stems from a white cardstock that has a little bit of texture.  Then I inked the pieces with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for the leaves and stems.  I inked the poppies with Altenew Cotton Candy Ink and then a little bit of Taylored Expressions Lavender Glaze ink.  It’s tricky getting the right pink to match the plaid paper.   I hope I got close! lol

I added a video directly from my phone, I wish they let me change the size but this is all I get for my money!

I die cut the plaid from the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad and edged the cut with the same Shabby Shutters Distress ink.  Regular Distress ink.

Basically a very non traditional poppy!  I will have to do a red one next time!

Last week I posted the poppystamps Grand Whittle Pig card and after I got to thinking it’d make a cute shape card to be used on a gift!  So here’s a quick snapshot of how that turned out when I tried it.  Cute! oink!

Sure you could ‘doll’ it up too!  How about a red bandana at the neck! lol

Another quick video…

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Snowflake Window Stencil Card…

NEW Release from Simon Says Stamp! I received the NEW Snowflake Stencil and made a clean and simple mini slimline card. This one turned out to be 3 ¼ in x 6 ⅜ in. 

I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray glue, adhered it to Canson Smooth Bristol cardstock and inked with Distress Oxide stamp pads and blending brushes. Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid lagoon.

Let it Snow is a newer die from Memory Box, Let it Snow Posh Script, both layers cut from heavy white cardstock. I mounted it to the panel with pieces of mounting tape.

I embellished the snowflakes with Memory Box Clear, self adhesive Fairy Drops.

I love these pretty, sparkly, Winter colors!

I stamped the inside with a newer sentiment clear stamp set from poppystamps, Wintertime Sentiments with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. Some really fun sentiments in this set. “Thanks for Snow much fun”,  “Happy Winter Wishes to you”, Warm and cozy Winter greetings”, “You are One of a kind”, “Tis the Season to be freezin'”, “The world changes when it Snows”, and more!  

I’ll leave you with one more sentiment from this wonderful stamp set… “Friends warm even the coldest of days”.  I agree!  Thank you for stopping by!

poppystamps NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn (horse today) Barn Easel Card…

Hi everyone! It’s freezin season but the sun is shining and it’s warm enough for me in the house! haha

poppystamps came out with this NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn die and I wasn’t in a unicorn mood after I die cut in white I guess. I decided to try an inked Distress Ink unicorn that ended up a horse! lol

Then I remembered the poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel die set and I was off after two other starts!

I had some fun with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die.  It was one of my starts but I decided not to use it this time but then I decided to cut the streamers off and use them on the barn!  Barns always need embellished, right?!

I’m pretty tickled with how it turned out.  I took a bunch of pictures hoping they show what I did.

I made a little stand for the tufts of grass die cuts cut in TE Peapod cardstock and that whole piece with the horse lays down on the inside when you fold it up.

The horse is kinda like a second easel…

A strip of cardstock that I scored at ¼ in, glued the grass and then the horse to the ¼ inch part.

The sentiment, from the poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments clear stamp set, is heat embossed on Taylored Expressions Cherry Pop cardstock with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I put the easel together just like it shows on the back of the package.  I have to look every time! lol

It folds flat to fit in the envelope…

I’m not sure who I’ll send this too but hopefully someone that loves horses!

Holler if you have any questions!

Now back to the other two starts and see if they go anywhere!  There’s another new unicorn set with smaller unicorns and rainbows.  Cute!

Thank you for stopping by today! We’re headed toward Valentines Day at a gallop! haha

poppystamps Whittle Dies Series Day Two…

Welcome back to the 2nd day of Whittle cuteness!  My first card today I decided to make a slimline card and use the NEW Memory Box Twiggy Alphabet too!

I used one of the pattern papers from the pretty Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim pad and two Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Ocean Blue and Fresh Aqua for the die cut letters.

Then I proceeded to create a little scene below with Whittle Dies…

So cute!  I die cut Memory Box cardstock 6×6 paper pads again using Sunny Orange, Berry Red, Earth Neutral and Lush Green.  The background/sky/water is from Fresh Aqua.

Nothing hard, I didn’t even do any inking on these die cut pieces!  Stayed with the clean look.  A little white gel pen at the end.

Next up…moo…bleat! Look at these fun sentiments! poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments.

I hope you laughed outloud! hahahahahaha  I made one barn… cut it in half and made two mini slim cards!

Look at this cutie goat!  It’s so encouraging! lol

I die cut the Whittle Goat in white Neenah Classic Crest and using my TE gray blending brush for oxides,  I just went around it with the brush, no added ink. Then I colored the nose and ears with a pink Copic.  This was my third try at coloring the goat. I liked it the best.

I did some cloud inking… die cut and colored a fence…die cut some grass and the sun.

Next card….maybe I should stamp, “You’re Kind Of A Big Deal” on the inside! Actually it would work for both cards! lol  Same sentiment stamp set.

Here I colored the cow the same way as I did the goat, with the TE blending brush I have reserved for Oxide inks in brown. I just used the dirty brush, no added ink.

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on TE Oreo cardstock.

I think she’s barn with it…don’t you?! ❤

Well happy barn day and week to you!

Memory Box Ocean Collage Interactive Mini Slimline Shadowbox Card…

Hi everyone!  “water you up to?”  A very wet week and now for some sunshine and a water card! YAY!

I had to show you the inside first… I love how it turned out! lol

The front…

It’s like a book style, shadow box, interactive, slim line size, dimensional card!  3 ½ x 6 inches but it’s really a box that you’ll see in my little short video below.  I wish I knew how to keep the resolution so the quality was still here when I upload.  There must be some trick! I’m not ambitious enough to take the time to learn.  I’d rather make cards! You can smash it to mail it… It’ll probably need the 2 oz postage stamp.

I used a bunch of the new dies from Memory Box,  Distress Oxide Ink pads for all the coloring and Taylored Expressions ink blender brushes.  So fun… I like coloring dies this way.  I hope you can see that I added some white pigment ink/Sugar Cube from Taylored Expressions,  down the centers of the front background piece and the inside background piece… like there’s some light glowing in.

I spattered with water.  After it dried I spattered with some white watercolor paint.

I forgot to add some of the new Memory Box Fairy Drop Clear Domed adhesive embellishments!  They would’ve been a really cool!  Check them out HERE!

I got carried away with pictures… I cut out two though! lol

To make this, I added 1 ½  inch to my card base measurement, then scored so I would have  ½ inch for the spine and the ½ inch piece to glue my top panel to and a ½ inch for the side.  You can kinda see the white in the picture above…bottom right corner.  I did have to trim out some of it so the white didn’t show behind the bubbles and curves.  If you made this A2 size, you probably wouldn’t need to do that.

The two inside pieces I made/cut a scant 3 ½ in plus an ⅛ in for both sides so be sure to add a ¼ in to whatever size you make your card.

The top panel is only scored on the left side to glue to the spine.  The right side glues to the top ½ inch of the cardbase.

Sorry, I’m one of those wing it card makers that can figure out stuff as I go.  Hope you can figure it out too!

Memory Box Dies, Flower, Stems and More on Three Cards…

Hello!  I have three cards to share today…starting with the tallest and ending with the shortest! lol  For this card I was inspired by a challenge and a way to use the extra flower I had ready. Here’s a link to the challenge…(click on the logo).  I managed to keep it very CAS and complete the optional twist also with only die cuts!  yay! lol

#thank you so much to the AAA Cards blog for choosing my card as a winner!  HERE

I went with the Slimline card size so I could use the NEW Memory Box Slim Diagonal Collage die, the NEW Wildflower Stems die and the NEW Thank You Posh Script.

The flower is cut from watercolor paper and colored with Distress ink refills.  Definitely Clean and Simple!

Next card….

I absolutely love this mini slim line size card… 3 ½ inches by 6 inches.  I don’t know why but I find it charming! lol

I used the Memory Box NEW Lavender Stems,  the greenery from the NEW Daisy Stems and the greenery from the NEW Wildflower Stems.

I die cut from watercolor cardstock and painted with Distress Ink refills again.  I don’t know why I reach for these so much.  I have lots of other watercolor mediums. hehe

I used one of the NEW Memory Box cardstock pads… I love already coordinated paper!  The plaid is from the NEW Memory Box Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  This pad is so beautiful!  One side has gold foil accents and the back side is plain.  I used the plain this time but wow, the gold sides are so gorgeous!

Sentiments from poppystamps Springtime Fun and Memory Box Big and Little Spring stamp sets.

Next card…

This was my first card with the flowers I cut and painted.  From here they got simpler and taller! lol  This is a regular A2 size card.

Wildflower Stems, Seed Stems, Daisy Stems on top of the Stylish Rectangle Trio die.

Pattern papers from the Memory Box Garden Folly, Christmas Plaid and Garland Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pads.

The sentiment is from poppystamps Greeting Basics.

Give me a holler if you have any questions!  Thank you for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Botanical Split Background Slimline Card…

Hi everyone! Today’s card I’m using the center section of this new stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s latest NEW release ‘Hello Beautiful’. It’s a cool 6×6 background stamp but it splits into three pieces and you can use it all or just parts!

I started with Strathmore Best Watercolor paper pad, the brown one, taped it down, spritzed with water good and dropped in distress ink pad refill inks. Then I used that camera lens cleaner puffer tool.  I think that’s what it is anyway.  To move the inky water around.

Then I dried it with the heat tool.

After it was good and dry, I used the powder tool on it before I heat embossed the stamp in white on the watercolor background.

Then the question was, what to do with it! lol

I wanted to bring in some color, so I picked a light yellow from my stash.

Heat embossed a couple sentiments on vellum from SSS Sending and Wishing stamp set. Trimmed it down, folded it around the watercolor panel, taped it on the back, die cut the label and glued it on.  Nothing complicated at all!

I’ll link up what I used below…hopefully they’re all still available!  Have you tried making slimline cards yet?  What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box NEW ‘All the Happiness’ Stamp Set…

Hi everyone! It’s time for a NEW release from Memory Box!  So fun for all that love to color and love beautiful lettering!

Today’s card is using the NEW All the Happiness stamp set with two coordinating dies for the florals in the set.

AND there’s *NINE* NEW Memory Box cardstock paper pads!!!  48 6×6 inch sheets. 4 each of 12 shades. Printed on 110lb. cardstock. 6 x 6 inches. So awesome!

I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink, watercolored with regular Distress Ink, Victorian Velvet and Rustic Wilderness and shaded with Caran ‘dAche dark Carmine and black colored pencils.

Heat embossed the sentiment with black pigment ink and black embossing powder.

For the frame I die cut the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles largest die, then to make it a frame I used one of the dies from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics Set to cut the center out.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ve been helping grands with Valentines… so fun. I need to make some for them!  I drank tea too late yesterday so I’m propping my eyelids open today. haha  Not responsible for spelling and sentence structure today!

Memory Box NEW Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate Valentine…

Good Thursday to you! Another inky Valentine today.

I die cut in Neenah 110# solar white cardstock with the NEW Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate.  I inked with regular Distress inks and the mini foam ink blending tools.  Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry.

Then I needed something to do with it!  So I stamped words like conversation hearts from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines stamp set.

I added the new Memory Box Sending Love Posh Script die.  I inked up a scrap of white with Picked Raspberry and die cut the top cut from it… the underneath two layers are just white.

The sweet cupid dotting the ‘i’ with a teeny heart is the Memory Box Cupid with Bow die.  There’s also a bow and arrow with the cupid and teeny heart.  It’d be great on ATC’s.

I’ll stop talking and get back to birthday cards!  The sun is shining here…thankful!
