Memory Box Berry Wreath Thinking Of You…

Hi everyone! A thinking of you card today using the NEW Berry Wreath stamp set and coordinating die set.  It just made me think of bittersweet!

I stamped with Archival Coffee ink on Memory Box watercolor card, die cut the wreath and colored with Distress Ink Pad Reinkers.  I have some palettes I made with the reinkers so I worked with oranges/reds, greens and Vintage Photo for the brown.

I made an A2 cardbase with Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock and inked the edges with the foam ink blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I mounted the wreath and sentiment with foam tape and tied on some thin jute to add that little bit extra!

I wasn’t careful painting at all… as you can tell! lol  I spritzed the wreath with water in an area, then added the ink from a brush, then moved on to the next area.  I didn’t worry too much about going outside the lines.

It feels like Fall!

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!  We have three birthdays for grandkids this week so I’m working on birthday cards too.  WOW!  They grow up fast! ❤  I will try to share the cards here too!

Memory Box Pumpkin Card…

After making the stamp video the other day, I was in the mood to stamp and color this new pumpkin!  No great technique or anything… just stamping on MB watercolor card, coloring with Distress Ink Refills (I need to clean off my desk and get out a different coloring medium, lol).  I enjoy how the Distress ink refills work for watercolor though and the colors are so nice for this time of year!

I think this pumpkin would make a great shape card or place cards or what else?

For the cardbase, I used TE Sweet Basil cardstock and stamped poppystamps Picnic Plaid stamp on it with TE Sweet Basil Ink.

I didn’t want Halloween words so I used Grateful for our friendship from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set.

This stamp set with the pumpkin has great words for the banner though.

This turned out an odd size but it will still fit in an A6 envelope for a regular forever stamp!  YAY!

Thanks for clicking over!  We so appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for our family.  Breanna is making progress.  We’re so happy and so grateful! ❤

Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends.  I have a fairly simple card to share with you… well, I kept adding things! lol

Today is the new release at Simon Says Stamp… it’s festive and Christmasy for the most part!  I’ll link you up below to what I used.

The new stamp they sent me to show is the background here, Leaves and Berries Cling Mount Stamp.

I gold heat embossed it and then blended on 3 colors of Distress Oxide Ink. Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac.  Weird… the Lilac kinda wiped of when I went over it to get the ink off the heat embossed gold. I barely used any lilac though… good thing! haha I spattered with water drops using the Tim Holtz mister water bottle.

Then I just painted in the leaves and berries with the Gansai Tambi watercolors that I still had out on my desk.  Oh, I stamped on Strathmore 400/Best the brown pad of watercolor paper.

I die cut the panel with SSS Stitched Rectangles.

I embossed in Ranger Detail gold, the background and the sentiment.  ‘Thankful for you’ is from the SSS Autumn Greetings clear stamp set.

I used three small circle cuts from the New Memory Box Stylish Frame Trio die set.  I die cut them in TE Premium cardstock, links below, Candy Corn, Granny Smith and Peapod.

I die cut leaves from the cardstocks too using the New poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set.  Then I added some small enamel dots.

And that’s it!

Check out the new release!  I’ll link below in the linkdeli links below, the first one.  I’m not sure the links in my written post work so I’ll try this.

Thank you for stopping by!

Two poppystamps and Memory Box Autumn Cards…

Hi everyone!  Some Autumn cards I’ve made and haven’t gotten posted yet!

The poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil is so pretty!  There’s also two die sets of leaves that match this die… I’ll link to them below in case you’re interested.

The sentiment I used this time is from poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear set.

I used Oxide inks to blend the rectangle I stamped on.

The leaves were blended with oxide inks but I wasn’t happy with them so I colored over them with Copics!

The background behind the frame I watercolored with regular distress inks.

My next card ended up being one thing after another! I watercolored a background with regular distress inks but it was pretty dark.  I tried stamping the leaves stamp from the Memory Box Grateful Autumn stamp set directly on it but I didn’t like it.  So I gold heat embossed a piece of vellum and adhered it to the background with teeny lines of glue.  I wasn’t thrilled with that either so I colored the leaves directly on the front of the vellum with Copics!  Copics to the rescue again! lol

I want to see what I can come up with this stamp set with another try!  It’s so pretty and so many amazing stamps and sentiments in the set!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy cardmaking to you!

poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil Card…

Hi everyone!  We interrupt the Christmas cards for a Fall card! It’s getting close to that time, when the leaves start changing and definitely dance in the wind!

I love this pretty NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame.  I laid the stencil over the die cut and inked the leaves with regular Distress Inks and the mini ink blender tools. The colors I used were Forest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

Then I laid the stencil over the actual thin metal die and using the ink pad, tapped some ink onto the leaf vein lines.  Then I put the die cut back in the metal die and pressed the paper into the lines…that’s how I ended up with ink in the veins here and there. They look like dying leaves! lol

I die cut a rectangle background piece to fit behind the frame with the Memory Box Basic Rectangles dies.  I inked it with Distress ink also and did some water spatters, let it dry and then gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear stamp set.

I was going to just add some gold cord and tie a bow but it hit me to try wrapping the cord up the side of the die cut!  I liked it a lot and thought it made the leaves truly look like they were dancing in the wind! YAY!

I hope you’re having fun being creative these days… it’s been all hot and muggy again here…makes it easy to stay inside!

Thank you for stopping by!
