poppystamps Happy Easter and Memory Box Blossom 3D Embossing Folder Cards…


Made you smile!  I know, I know!  Thank you Jan for reminding me to add the puffy tail!  Keep scrolling for the pretty floral embossing folder card.

Grab a grass die cut it in green….add washi tape to white cardstock and die cut eggs…stamp some words…heat emboss some other words…layer it all up and you’ve got a cute card!  I’ll link what I used below.

I love using washi tape… it just adds a little bit of homespun or something!  The cute sentiments add the whimsy!

Hippity hoppity to the next card…

Here I used the NEW 3D embossing folder. I lightly spritzed the panel of Memory Box Watercolor paper with water on both sides before I ran it through my Big Shot.  Using blending brushes I blended ink on the panel with Distress Oxide inks.  I used one of the finger daubers to do the green.  I used my water droplet, clap on technique to get the white spots.  Spray water into your hand, then rub them together and clap over the panel.  I got a little green on the edges of the flowers so I went around the flower edges with a white gel pen. Oh and a few white gel pen dots on the flower centers.

The detail on this type folder is amazing!  My pictures do not do it justice!

I die cut the NEW Glade Butterfly and NEW Just a Note Posh Script dies from white cardstock and vellum.

I layered the panel onto black cardstock and then to a light yellow A2 size cardbase.

I’m really happy with how it turned out… it almost went in the trash! lol

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a fun week creating!  I might be outside some!  After a dreary week last week, it looks like we’re in for some sunshine!  YAY!

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

Memory Box and poppystamps Slimline Cards…

Hi everyone! A post today showing more new dies from Memory Box and poppystamps!  Memory Box is known for it’s butterflies!

Two new ones… so pretty!   These could be made up so many different ways and here I am doing monochrome! lol 

Sylvan Butterfly is the larger die set and Glade Buttlerfly is the smaller die set.

I chose the new Memory Box Happy Easter Posh Script die for the sentiment at the bottom but there are a few other new sentiment dies that would be beautiful also… Thank you Posh Script, Just a Note Posh Script and Birthday Mail Posh Script.

I did some inlaying with the new poppystamps Slim Leafy Collage die.  I cut in two colors and stuck the pieces back in.  It’s pretty with them left out too.  Just something therapeutic about using the pieces laying there. lol

For both my cards today I used the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die set… this is a cool set.  I especially love the smallest two for sentiments!  Trim to length!

My next card is another slimline…

I used the new Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad!  Almost too pretty to use!  I’m proud to say I used two pieces! lol  It took courage I’m telling ya’! lol

The gingham piece I die cut with the new Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles.  The plaid panel is cut with the Slim Basic Rectangle Layers… kinda nice you don’t have to measure!

I LOVE the new Memory Box Wooden Alpha!!!  I used them for SPRING today but I’m thinking masculine next!  So fun!

The light is changing again and always throws me off for taking pictures.  If you want to get a better idea of what the green color is… I stamped ‘happy’ from the new Memory Box  Big and Little Reverse Words stamp set with Altenew Frayed Leaf stamp pad!  I tried several greens and this one was right on as far as matching this gingham paper.

The purple I used for the Wooden Alpha is from the new Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad.

What better to put on a SPRING card than flowers and this new Memory Box Gerber Stems die set is perfect for this card!  Sweet blooms that will be beautiful colored too!  Our middle daughter had beautiful Gerbera Daisies for her outdoor, wildflower setting wedding.  Good memories!

Holler if I missed something.  I’m not sure what the standard size, if there is one, is for a slimline card.  These both ended up 8 ⅝ ths long and 3 ⅝ ths wide. I finally wrote down what size to cut the base so I don’t have to keep figuring it out every time!  ❤

Have a creative Friday afternoon!  Thank you for visiting my blog this week!

Memory Box Egg Basket Frame Happy Easter Card…

I’m back and editing to add more photos!  I decided to take off the Happy Easter and stamp hello!  So keep scrolling for the original post text!  lol

The sentiment ‘hello’ is from the New Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments Clear stamp set, HERE.

Which one do you like better?   Don’t count that I changed the white balance on the camera so the color  is different for the two cards…some days I shouldn’t be allowed to have a camera! lol

 

A very Happy Spring and Easter to you! These Memory Box Forget Me Nots are such sweet, little, whimsical flowers to add to the new Memory Box Egg Basket Frame.

There’s a little bit of green coming up at the base of our hydrangea bushes.  Whew… it was a fierce Winter so you never know!  There’s hope!

I die cut the Egg Basket Circle 3 times from kraft color cardstock and glued them together.  I left one cut in the die and embossed the basket weave by going over the basket area with a stylus.  Then I inked the whole thing with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

I die cut the Frame part of the set from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock.  I don’t use the metal shim for these dies but because they are intricate, I die cut them with the blades up.  I crank a third of the way, then crank back to start, then crank to the middle, then crank back a little but not back to start, then I crank the rest of the way but stopping and going back toward the middle and back to all the way again.  Hope that makes sense.  I can’t stand my cutting plates getting all warped. And this works most of the time.  If I have an area that didn’t cut all the way, I change to a sidekick cutting plate, the small 2 inch wide plate and try to just cut in that area.  I don’t like to try to cut the whole thing again.  It makes a mess!  I hate those paper hairs too. ugh.

Otherwise, just use 80# cardstock and it’ll cut without any extra maneuvering!

I backed the Frame with a Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die cut in a little darker purple cardstock.

I inked up the area behind the basket with a little Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and a mini ink blending tool.

To top it off, I die cut the new Memory Box Happy Easter Premiere die from Gold Foil Cardstock.   I love this gold!

The card is 4 ¾ inches square.  You can easy mail it in an A7 envelope!

I’ve got a card to mail today, it’s so nice, I’m gonna walk it to the Post Office! yay for Spring!

Memory Box Cottage Flower Circle Frame Card…

Hi everyone! Hope it’s a lovely day wherever you are!  I’m using some new Memory Box/poppystamps products today.

I started by die cutting the NEW Cottage Flower Circle and Egg Basket Frame dies in white cardstock. (I forgot to emboss the Cottage Flower Circle Frame cut… oops, normally the leaves and flowers would have some vein lines in them from the die)

I only used the Square Frame portion of the Egg Basket Frame die and adhered it directly on the Bazzill Mint Julep A2 card base.

I die cut a solid circle from the Memory Box Circle Basics Die set and inked it with three Oxide inks, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean. Then spattered with water.

I mounted the white Cottage Flower Circle, with small pieces of mounting tape behind the flowers and leaves, to the Oxide circle, then adhered the circle directly over the Egg Basket Frame already on the card base.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Doodle Happy Easter die three times, glued them together and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Memory Box Typewriter Sentiments stamp set on white cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder,  inked it with the three oxide inks I mentioned above, then trimmed it out with the NEW My Sweet Petunia Cut Align ruler.  I LOVE it!  It works great!

The flower sprig by the sentiment is a die that’s included in the Cottage Flower Circle Frame Die.  I used little pieces of foam mounting tape behind the flower and leaf but glued the ends of the stems directly to the card base.

For some reason, I really like these colors together!  Here’s hoping for more Easter cards since Easter is late this year.  Sometimes the holidays come to close together for me to keep up! lol

Stempelgarten Challenge and Memory Box Springtime Tulips and Wildflower Circle Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been here on the blog!  EEK! It’s been a busy family February for me, all good!I’m excited to share that I’m a guest at the Stempelgarten Challenge blog this month.  I bet you can guess the theme just by looking at my card! If you said, Spring, you’re right!

My card uses two new Memory Box dies, Springtime Tulips, Wildflower Circle and the new stamp set, Springtime Typewriter Sentiments.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress inking in the background, then the dies cut in white and colored with Copic Markers. I did cut an extra frame (tulips) to help the Wildflower Circle be a little higher on the card.  I hand trimmed the tulips off the extra one though because I just wanted the frame.

The sentiment is stamped on the front with Ranger Archival black ink using the MISTI stamping tool.

You are invited to join in the challenge with a Spring creation until March 31st!   Click on over AND there’s a prize involved!  Here’s a picture and a link to the Stempelgarten online store.  So CUTE!

I think Spring is around the corner!  hehe  I know it is even though it was minus one when I got up this morning! lol

Memory Box Spring Bunnies Card…

Happy Spring!  The rain has started so the flowers will be popping up and the bunnies will be hopping!  I fell in love with the bunny with the scarf though and I love the carrots in this set!  SO CUTE!

I did some regular Distress Ink blending with the mini ink blending tools using  Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron and spattering with water for the background.

The fence is from the Fanciful Fences Memory Box die set and the Oval is from the Stitched Oval Layers die set but the Studio Oval Layers die set would work too.

Colored with Copic Sketch Markers… E40’s, YR10’s, YG20’s.

I stamped the sentiments from the set with the MISTI stamping tool using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink.

A card sure to bring smiles…and bring on a carrot binging snack! lol

Memory Box Sweet Bunny Happy Easter Card…


Memory Box new Sweet Bunny hoppin’ your way today.  I placed him in a little scene, no camouflage there!

I started with the Forest Branch Collage die, die cut from a MB Kraft notecard, inked the inside edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool. I colored the branches and leaves with Distress Markers Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs.

Next layer called the Forest Collage and the top layer called the Everglade Collage…both die cut in MB Kraft and inked the same as the Forest Branch Collage.

I didn’t use mounting tape this time but you sure could…the thinnest is what I’m linking you to below. I just made double cuts of the Forest and Everglade Collage and glued them together to get a bit more thickness.


I die cut the bunny in Hobby Lobby’s Mastertouch Watercolor paper. This is the old version…it’s a little different now but still cool texture. I colored his bunny ears with a Spun Sugar Distress marker. Oh and added a little to his cheeks!

I die cut some teeny flowers from a discontinued die but I linked up below to another die that has teeny flowers in it that would work the same way. I used an embossing stylus to shape the flowers and poked them in the center with a piercing tool.

For the kraft strip, I used the Stitched Divider die and glued the die cut Happy Easter on it.

The top panel is die cut with one of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress ink blended on to the Memory Box White notecard with the mini ink blending tool.

I think that’s it!  Holler if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!  Links below to what I used…thank you, thank you to you that shop through my links… I appreciate it so much! Happy making!

poppystamps Powell & Corden Butterflies and Egg Swoosh Easter…

Just a note…a pretty gold embossed butterfly on my first card today.  I die cut a white card-stock panel with the Rectangle Basic die set, then die cut the Corden Butterfly die in the panel.

I die cut the Powell Butterfly die, inked it and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I only glued it to the card base in the very center so the wings can be lifted and shaped a little.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment…layered the panel onto a Memory Box Lagoon A2 notecard and glued on a few 4 mm gold sequins.

An easy CAS card that lets the gold make the statement!

For this Happy Easter card I die cut the Egg Swoosh die in metallic gold card-stock, adhered it to the white panel that I die cut with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set and stamped happy easter in mint green ink.

I die cut and colored the Stitched Eggs with Distress inks and the mini ink blending tools. Then glued them on.

I mounted the white panel to the card with a piece of craft foam that I die cut with the same Rectangle Basics die set.  I just use ATG tape on both sides to adhere to the panel and then to the Memory Box A2 notecard.

Another CAS (clean and simple) card ready for the next holiday!

Memory Box Spring and Easter cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Some Memory Box dies and Distress Ink Smooshing on my first card today. Have you done this technique yet? I’m sure I’ve described it on other posts and if you google, lots will come up.  It is so fun!  I used Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet on  watercolor paper.

I die cut the egg a couple times and glued it together with Tombow Mono Multi glue.  The sentiment is just one layer glued carefully to a piece of vellum. I used the Rectangle Basics die set for the layers.

I know the Nuvo drops are really fun but I still tend to reach for the Doodlebug Sprinkles/enamel dots.  I love the colors and sizes.  I’ll link to everything below.

Next card…

I die cut the Gift Basket die from a kraft notecard and ran it back through the Big Shot with the tan mat and shims to get the embossed effect.  While it’s still in the die, turn it over and ink it through the holes in the die with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the ink blending tool!  Adds so much to a simple card.

The Petite Flower Bunch die fits perfectly in the basket. I used white Nuvo drops for the flower centers.

The light is weird on this photo but I liked it for some reason. lol  A sweet card IRL.  One to use for any occasion.

It’s been so fun to have you following me with this rash of blog posts! hehe  I promise I won’t always post like this!

poppystamps Floral Stem, Tulisa and Ring Collage dies and Happy Easter Egg die…

Hi everyone…a big pop of color to brighten your day right off the bat! Two cards today.

I loved Shari’s video HERE. I just had to try her technique!

Coloring with Distress inks on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. The Rectangle Basics die set for the layer…

Emboss the Ring Collage die with your die cutting machine…

Add some super cute matte Doodlebug Sprinkles…link below.

Cindy from Starlitstudio gave me this tip and I love using it. You know how it is with adhesives…it takes a half a dozen to make a card! lol I have different mounting options for different reasons.  On a narrow frame like this, I love using Cindy’s mounting technique.

Take a piece of craft foam and put scor-tape on both sides. Then you can cut strips whatever size you need!  First I cut them ahead but now, I just cut strips with a scissors in the moment to what size I need right then.  Love it!

Cindy has White craft foam 3mm HERE, Black craft foam 3mm HERE and Scor-tape HERE. I use the 2 ½ inch size for this.  I love scor-tape, well right after Tombow Mono Multi and ATG. lol  Oh and 3L mounting squares.  See…takes a lot of adhesives! lol  You can also use the 2mm fun foam from the chain stores.

Here I die cut the Tulisa Collage die in a white card-stock panel that I die cut with the Rectangle Basics die.  I love that the largest rectangle in this set is A2 size! This panel is mounted to the card base with mounting foam strips.

I die cut the Happy Easter Egg die and the grass die from white card-stock. I like to leave or put the die cut back in the waste to do the coloring/inking.  Helps it stay in shape and prevents bending too. I inked the words and the grass with Distress inks and the mini ink blending tools.

I glued the sentiment, grass and a few clean sequins to the card front with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Holler if you have any questions!

Here’s what I used to make these cards…

Memory Box Easter Eggstravaganza Frame, Springtime Floral Egg, Happy Easter Journal Script, Hippity Hoppity, Bunny Silhouette and Delphinium Circle Dies…

Hello card makers and friends! Maybe I should’ve saved this one for Easter Sunday! Maybe I’ll take a blogging break that day! hehe

Another ink blended background using Distress inks on Mixed Media card-stock.  I really like using this stock because it blends so easy and is very forgiving…any marks blend out and the colors move together so well. My arm gets tired, so easier and faster is good! A few water drops is all…kept this pretty simple.

I die cut the Easter Eggstravaganza Frame in white card-stock and ran it back through the Big Shot using the Multi-Purpose platform on Tab 2, the tan mat and  5 pieces of 65# card-stock for extra shimming. That gets the detail embossed nicely.  If it doesn’t emboss as deep as I want, I turn it to the back side and using an embossing stylus I rub in the spots that are meant to emboss. Bummer I didn’t get better pictures of the embossing but I think you know what I mean.

I love this long bladed grass die though… I don’t have the solid egg dies that fit behind but I think I would’ve liked them too.  I’ll put them in the link up below in case you’d want a solid layer behind your decorative eggs.

This picture shows I die cut 3 of the Happy Easter sentiment.  I added a few dots of white gel pen too.

I inked the top Happy Easter before I glued them together.  I left it in the negative cut while I was inking to keep it from bending out of shape.  You could ink your card-stock and then die cut too.

Any Easter-y Distress ink colors will work!

Next card…

This is my second make of this card.  The first one I glued the words on hoppity hippity!  Go Pam! lol  Funny thing is, I didn’t even notice it for a couple weeks! That’s scary! lol

I die cut the Delphinium Circle in Mixed Media paper and likely inked it with Wild Violet I think. Then I die cut it with the new Square Basics dies. I inked a piece to go behind the circle too…again with Distress ink and the ink blending tools.

Hippity Hoppity was die cut from MM card-stock and inked with Wild Violet Distress ink too.  I dropped water droplets on it to get that distressed look. Really nice size sentiments…easy to glue on with my favorite Tombow Mono Multi glue.

I die cut and embossed the Bunny Silhouette die, left it in the die, turned it over and inked it with Hickory Smoke Distress ink and an ink blending tool being careful to not get any on it’s tail.

I added dots to the flowers with Nuvo Drops.

I mounted it with foam tape…love that stuff, don’t you? I did add an eye to the bunny with a black pen.  Which reminds me I need to order some more! hehe

poppystamps Happy Easter Curve, Elegant Easter Lily, Ring Collage, Easter Egg Party and Tomei Branch dies…

Hello! Here’s the card I used the leftover watercolor piece from yesterday’s card on.  I embossed the Ring Collage die in the watercolor background by running it through the Big Shot with the Multi Purpose Platform on Tab 1, a tan mat, the cutting plates and a couple card-stock shims.

I’ve been thinking about this background and I’m pretty sure I used Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint for the watercoloring. I didn’t use this piece for what I originally wanted because I didn’t like the Peeled Paint in there but I don’t mind it for this card.  Tip: don’t throw anything away. lol

I like the Lilly as a silhouette in white!  The other card-stock colors are Memory Box A-2 Notecards.

Another close up.  The spatters are the same distress inks I used for the background, use less water for darker spatters.

Here I used the new Easter Egg Party and Tomei Branch dies. I die cut them in white and colored with Copics. The rectangles are cut with the Rectangle Basics die set.

An ink blended background with some spatters everywhere!  And I mean everywhere…how do they get on my glasses and the floor?! ugh

Some of those sweet little sequins and a few gel pen white dots to finish it off.

Oh and a sweet happy easter greeting from the Easter Excitement Clear stamp set, inked in black.

Hi everyone! Here comes Peter Cottontail! I’m not sure the best way to show all the Easter cards I have…getting close to the wire. Do you have an opinion?  Two cards in a post?  Two posts a day? There are a lot of pictures. I know I need to get them out there so you can shop if you want!

I made a watercolor background with Distress inks and cut the Happy Easter Curve die out of it…in the card I’ll post tomorrow, you’ll see what I did with the negative of the cut.

I die cut the Freida Curve die from White card-stock.

The Rabbit is die cut from white card-stock and inked with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs and the ink blending tool.  I masked off his tail so it wouldn’t get too dirty! hehe

The Mixed Media card panel is cut from the Rectangle Basics die and ink blended with Distress Inks and the ink blending tools and spattered with some water droplets. The rectangle panel is taped with ATG to an A-2 size card base.

Two sizes of Pretty Pink Posh sequins glued here and there finish it off.

Penny Black Easter Bunny Mimi…

Pam Sparks PB Mimi Bunny Easter

Happy Easter weekend everyone! I have a cute card to share and then for the real reason for Easter, a video to share…they’ll both make you smile and celebrate!

Mimi is from the Mimi and Miles clear stamp set from Penny Black.  I stamped her Hammermill Color Copy Cover card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection and inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Both images were stamped with the MISTI stamping tool.

Pam Sparks PB Mimi Bunny Easter Close

I die cut the stamped panel with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies.

Very basic A2 size card but she’s so cute she stole the show and didn’t need any embellishing IMO!  lol

and here’s the video I wanted to share… super cute kids with the Easter story. This little gal is like a real life Mimi!

 

Thanks for the visit today!
