Boo!  Happy Saturday! Two more cute halloween cards to share today then it’s on to the NEW Christmas releases from Memory Box and poppystamps!  I hope you’re enjoying and creating with all the new releases! hehe

Here’s the Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock out to play again!  I used white glossy on the Boo but it’s hard to tell it in the pictures.  I should’ve used it on the ghost and cobweb too! lol

A2 size card…. links below to the dies I used.

Next up, some more purple and orange goodness!

Oxide inks came out to play… two purples and two oranges blended on white cardstock.  Then a cloud stencil with white pigment ink brushed on over the top of the purples and oranges.

Spatter on some black and white watercolor inks.

Die cut the ink blended panel with Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die before inking.

The ghost on this card is from the NEW Whittle Creatures die. (in my previous post also)

Sentiment is from Memory Box clear stamp set Halloween Pumpkin.

A2 size card.

poppystamps Cat Collage Card, Whittle Creatures Card and Jack O Lantern Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s Black, Orange and Purple season!  But isn’t this black NEW Cat Collage amazing die cut in Memory Box black glossy cardstock!  I love the thickness of it….I use a piece of copy paper folded in half for a shim when I die cut it.

Memory Box NEW Happy Halloween Posh Script die cut directly in the glossy card front panel then an orange die cut inlaid into it.  Be sure to keep the centers of the letters!

An easy alternative to gluing!  I put scor-tape on the back side, flip it over and inlay the die and letter centers. I use scor-tape a lot!

I had a scrap of brayered cardstock that wasn’t good enough to make the keep pile.  It worked perfectly for die cutting the background for the cat and the windows of the NEW poppystamps Twisted Houses die!

A2 size card.

Next up is a cute, cute card using the NEW poppystamps Whittle Creatures die set.

Aren’t they cute?  oh, I already said that! lol  They’ve got personality!

I die cut in white and copic colored.  So easy because the only little pieces are the faces. I put a little piece of scor-tape on the backs, then insert the little pieces with a pick up tool. Works great!

I decided to go postal!  Memory Box Postage Square Layers for the white layer, Stitched Square Layers for the bluish green layer.  I had to cut the black layer with a paper trimmer.

The broom is from the NEW Whittle Witch die.

Then I needed words!  I landed on this poppystamps Marzipan Greetings clear set.  A bunch of fun sentiments in this set.  Love it!

Mini Slimline size card.

My next card is CAS or QAE!

Mini Slimline size card again using the NEW poppystamps Jack O Lantern Frame die.

I die cut it in TE candycorn cardstock.  Colored with copics, the branches brown and the leaves green, coloring right over the orange cardstock.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Boo Pie Script die in Memory Box black glossy cardstock.  So fun!  A smiling Jack O Lantern just trying to scare you! ha!

I have TWO more Halloween cards to show you tomorrow!  Then….guess what?!  More NEW coming!  Be watching!

Simon Says Stamp/Memory Box STAMPtember Collaboration!

Welcome to my blog, it’s that time of year! STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp and a collaboration with Memory Box! I have two cards to share…

The stamp set has beautiful botanical images and sentiments! I hope you will love it too!

Beautiful images to color!  I used Copic Sketch Markers for my cards today. G21, 24, 28, 29 for the greens. R24, 37, 39 for the berries.

There’s a coordinating die for the set also.  I didn’t have it so I used my scan n cut to cut it out.

I always love coloring the reds and greens for Christmas.

I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI and Ranger Archival Black Ink. These stamps stamp beautifully!

Both of my cards are A2 size.

The next card is an Autumn card…

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers again.  I loved coloring these images… very easy open spaces which would work with all coloring mediums. E11, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19 for the flower.  YG91, 93, 95, 97 for the leaves. YR02, YR18, E07 for the berries.

I’ll link up below the other products I used on these two cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you click away, be sure to come back and click through my link again and I’ll get credit at no expense to you!  I appreciate it so much!

Enjoy STAMPtember!

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Party!

Hi everyone!  I have some cards to post using the NEW for STAMPtember sentiment set called ‘Extra Talkative’.  So many sentiments in the set I ended up with five cards!  This is a big set with dies to match but I didn’t get the dies to use.  You’ll see how beautifully they ink up and stamp!

Here’s my first card…

I made three Mini Slimline cards and two A2 size cards…

What great words of encouragement!  Everyone can use that now and then!  I’m sending this one to myself! lol

Besides the Extra Talkative set I used two new sets from Memory Box.  Leafy Branch Oval and Fanciful Fall Leaves.

 

Next up…

How cute is this ‘Hi.’! So cute!  I cut some strips with a Waffleflower die, stamped four sentiments from the set on each strip with matching ink. ATG to the card…thin mounting tape to mount the HI circle.

Next…

Another CAS card.  Here I used a Gina K Designs die set, Botanical Duo.  I cut it in white and inked it with regular Distress Inks and ink blending brushes.  Scrap paper to protect each part from the other color.

I stamped the sentiment in the MISTI…taped on another one of those strips, I cut too many, tied on the thin Mayarts twine and it was done!

Now for the two A2 size cards…

Brayering Kaleidacolor ink pad colors onto Hammermill Color Copy 100# cardstock.  I love how this cardstock keeps the color vibrant!

The Botanical Duo die in Glossy Black cardstock and two sentiments from the set again.

Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die for the brayered white panel.

Next…

More encouragement from this card! These sentiments stamped so beautifully.  I used Ranger Archival Black ink.  It’s my favorite for stamping black sentiments.  I used the MISTI also.

I added a few black enamel dots on the berries… just enough to make it a little ‘extra’!

Just reading these cards is helping put the smile back on my face today!  Hope it’s an encouragement to you also!

Here’s a special code from SSS for an ‘extra’ to put a smile on your face today too! I’ll list the clickable links to the other products I used at the bottom of this post… Have fun shopping and if you click to another blog but want to shop through my links, just come back and click through one of my links again and it will track to me.  You know I appreciate it and wish I knew who to send thank yous too!

NEW poppystamps Harvest Oval Frame and Fanciful Fall Leaves Card…

Hi everyone! Are you thinking of Fall colors these days?  Is this you?  There’s something about every season that I love but Christmas is my fave.  I truly miss the Summer nights when it’s light until almost ten though!

I started with a die cut A2 size piece of Canson Bristol from their orange pad.  Using ink blending brushes and regular Distress Ink pads I started with Peeled Paint at the bottom, added a little Forest Moss, then moved to Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge, then the top is Wild Honey!

Yes there is a pattern.  I took an old Memory Box stencil, Raymelle #88541, but any stencil would work,  laid it over my inked panel and with a wet paper towel I dabbed off the color through the stencil.  I LOVE it!  I kept it very subtle…didn’t take off much ink really.

I die cut the NEW Harvest Oval Frame four times from natural color cardstock and glued them together instead of using foam tape this time.  Glued them directly to the inked card panel

I die cut the leaves and acorns from the NEW Fanciful Fall Leaves die in the same Bristol cardstock and inked with the same ink pads that I did the card panel.

I forgot to say that I heat set the ink blended panel with my heat tool and heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder before I glued on the oval.

The sentiment is from the Memory Box Harvest Love and Kindness clear stamp set.  I inked it with Black pigment ink because I get a sharper image using black then using clear ink, in the MISTI so I could do it over and over a few times so I get a good coating but I don’t squish it to death when I’m stamping it. I have a press tool that our grandson 3D printed for me… I really like having it.  I know there are several out there on the market.

I think that’s it! This would be an easy card to make multiples of.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you’re enjoying the new releases from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Design!

Memory Box NEW Halloween/Fall Release!

BOO! aka Hello! Time to get inky for Fall!  Sharing three projects I made with the NEW Memory Box release!

I’ll start with this cute BOO to YOU!  The Fancy Gate Globe is NEW.  I paired it with the Snowglobe Backer die to make this hanging or it stands too, tag.

The ghosts are from the NEW Ghosts in the Forest die set and the sentiment is the NEW Boo Posh Script!  So cute!

I inked a background piece I cut with the Nested Globes die set and inked with purple inks and an ink blending brush. (it’s a brighter purple IRL)

This was a quick tag to make!

Linking my tag to the Everybody Art Challenge – Tag

Next up is an A2 size card I made with the NEW Ghosts in the Forest die set.

I die cut the scene out of Memory Box’s black glossy cardstock and the ghosts out of white glossy cardstock.  I love how it looks IRL.

I inked an A2 size panel for the back with oranges and purples and spattered water, white paint and black paint on to it.

I added the NEW Rickety House die cut in the same glossy black cardstock.  For the windows, I die cut the house in white and left the windows in the cut, colored them with a Copic yellow marker, then glued the white to the back of the black house.

I used the NEW Happy Halloween Posh Script die for the sentiment.  Die cut in black glossy and an orange from my scraps.

Not really spooky but sure is cute!

Next up is the NEW Creepy Cabin die!  This one is really CAS and probably took me the longest because I couldn’t decide whether to color it or not! lol  In the end, leaving it white won out.

It’s not so creepy anyway! haha

I inked a purple-ish background, cut everything in white.

I used the Wooded Glen Collage die from a previous release for the top layer.  Then a few pumpkins I got inky from the Pile of Pumpkins die.  The stems I colored with a Copic marker.

Layered them up with that thin thin foam mounting tape I like.

Oh, I stamped Hello from the Halloween Pumpkin clear stamp set from a previous release.

This card is 5 ½ inches square. A nice size… I like it!

I’ll link everything below.

And thank you so much for clicking over.  I’ll be back…so much I want to make!

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!

Spellbinders August Small Die of the Month Club Card….

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with the NEW Spellbinders Small Die club of the month kit…all the dies for this come in the kit for one low price!  Super cute too!

I got to thinking…that slit!  What a cute money holder!  So I added 5 bucks to my photos. hehe

Sometimes the stash of old stuff really comes in handy…so glad I still have a couple packages of these old Basic Grey magnets. I’ll try to find some others to link up below.


I used TE cardstock and Lawn Fawn pattern paper for the accent papers on the backpack. Lawn Fawn ink to edge the backpack pieces and crayons.

The zipper and glasses are silver foil/mirror cardstock.

I even had a piece of old history outline paper!  I taped it to a piece of white cardstock because it’s so thin.

I took some more photos with a black background…just to make it hard for me to decide what to post!  urrrrgghhh haha  So just posting both flat and standing up pics today!

It’s an A2 size card and will mail for one forever stamp too! yay!

There’s another sentiment in the set too… You Rule…so cute…subscription price is just $12.50 a month!  Details HERE and how it works info. Be sure to check out all the clubs while you’re there.

One last photo…so many fun details and very easy to make.  I think this can be customized for any age too!

 

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by!
