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 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

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!

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

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a creative weekend if you can!  ❤

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 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!

poppystamps Lattice Plate Card…

Hi everyone!  Bright card for you today!  Wake up if you’re not already! lol

I started by diecutting the NEW poppystamps Lattice Plate die…there’s just something about flowers with lattice!

I needed something to go with it and was inspired by something I saw and now I can’t remember where or what. Shoot me now! haha

I love this poppystamps Floral Stem Collage die and it makes me think of a pretty garden with a fence and gate.

I’m not sure how I ended up with these colors!  :O I used regular Distress Ink pads and the mini ink blending tools.

I know the background color behind the lattice cut is Blueprint Sketch. I think the color behind the flower is Tumbled Glass with Blueprint spatters. I made this Monday or Tuesday and moved on to the next thing without even thinking to remember.  It’s so out of my normal color scheme… I can’t even decide if they really go together!  If it’s totally ugly, just ignore me! hehe

I used a sentiment from the poppystamps Greeting Basics stamp set… really liking this set. Another sentiment in the set that would’ve worked is ‘friends are flowers that never fade’.  Pretty and so true!

That’s it for today… off to take pictures of another Valentine and a couple cards with SSS new releases.  I still have family birthday cards to make!  I am behind…glad they love me anyway!  ❤

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box Diagonal Stripe and Collaboration Flower Stamp Set…

Hi Friends and cardmakers! I made this card and even had the pictures taken before we had a family emergency and had to hurry out the door.

The sentiment on this card says it all though!  So thankful for all who prayed for our daughter, for us and even gave to support her!  It’s a miracle she is alive.  She had 6 hours of chemo on Friday and by Sunday they said she only had 2 hrs to 2 days to live.  I just couldn’t let her go.  I started telling her to breathe and live, her sisters got her bone broth and we started in on her.  By Wednesday she was back on living protocol and we were kicked out of the hospital much to my dismay!!!  Our hearts are with her and we chat with her on and off all day. 

Now about this card…I’d been wanting to use the new Memory Box Diagonal Stripe Collage die.  I love it!  I have another idea brewing in my head but not sure it will work. lol

Then I saw this new stamp set, Celebrate Us, awhile back that was a collaboration between Altenew and Pinkfresh Studio and I wanted it for fast colored flowers!  I’m really happy with how they stamped up and how well two of them fit together to make a bouquet.

I used Altenew mini ink cubes to ink up the flower stamps.  I’m gonna call this a CAS card because it wasn’t hard and I think you could make several of them fast and the white background just sets them off!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Once again…we covet your prayers and thoughts for our family right now…not sure what the journey will look like but the miracle has begun and we’re not giving up!  Nourish and Hope!
