My Favorite Things Birdie Brown Sittin’ Pretty and Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up Card…


Hi everyone! I LOVE cute!  I don’t make it near as much as I used to but I still love cute and coloring! 

This is the NEW Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up die and MFT Birdie Brown Sittin’ Pretty stamp and die set.

They’re small images so fast coloring!  Every girl should have a birdie singing happy birthday to her don’t you think?! 

Tim and I have three granddaughters that turned 17 already this year!  HOW?  Time flies indeed!  Just yesterday they were playing house!

This fits in an A2 size envelope.  If you used taller images, you’d need to use a larger or square envelope.

I used paper from my ancient stash…

The fence is from poppystamps.  Colored with Copic Sketch markers.

Thank you for clicking over! I’ll be back soon with NEW from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Design!!!  You can see the new at Starlitstudio.net and Simon Says Stamp!

Here’s what I used to make this card…I’m linking the platform pop up but it’s out of stock everywhere. ugh

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 Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so in love with this set!  I copied and made it like the photo on the package! lol  I was making it for card kits so I just copied to skip the design process… Thank you Dave/poppystamps for designing and inspiring our cardmaking! ❤

So much potential though, for beautiful Winter cards!  I know I”ll have to make it again and again with other dies too!  I can see a snowman in the picture, can’t you? a sleigh? laughing all the way… brrrr lol

I have a lot of pictures because my camera does better on an overcast day…or maybe it’s me that does better on an overcast day! haha

On the back of the packaging are pictures of how it goes together.  I’ve made a lot of easel cards but I still have to look to remember how these go together.  Very easy.

I love being able to display cards.  I use mine for decorating the mantel until I have to mail them!

The Warmest Wishes sentiment is from Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings clear stamp set.  So many good sentiment sets anymore from Memory Box and poppystamps…I love it when I can match the front with the inside!

The easel will lay down flat and then into an A2 envelope!  So nice!  I’m sitting here looking at it wishing I could show you IRL! lol

So festive and beautiful!  I love making for Christmas! I hope you’re inspired!  Have a good week and I’ll talk to you later!

My Scrap Chick Beach Box Card…

Hi everyone! Another end of Summer interactive card to share!  I guess I’m loving these box cards.  This file came from My Scrap Chick. com.

I use a Scan and Cut so I have to change the SVG file to work on it.  I follow a video that’s really easy!  I have to watch it every time though because I don’t cut files very often.  Mostly I use it to cut out stamped images if I don’t have matching dies.  Comment or email me if you want a link to the video.

This turned out so cute!  The file is actually called Guy Bird Tubing but I needed it to be a girl!  Simple fix… I cut a narrow strip of cardstock and put it through the holes on the light pink piece and made straps for her bathing suit!

We’re still having some hot days here in Iowa so that lemonade looks so refreshing!

hahahaha  I added some white lines and dots with a white gel pen.

I used some old Bazzil cardstock and some Taylored Expressions cardstock.  Cookie Monster for the bird and Confetti Cake for the box.

It folds flat so easily and slips into an A2 envelope.  The file comes with an envelope you can cut but I resized it way too big!  I was glad to find out it fit in a regular size A2.

Totally charming! lol  This file comes with a short assembly video too… amazing how the gal designed it to fit together seamlessly!

On the back I wrote, “we think you’re beachy keen”! lol

Thank you for stopping by today!

Yesterday was stressful…I had to update the operating system on this computer.  Safari cut me off to where I couldn’t log in to my blog!  Fortunately everything is working ok… I almost panicked because it didn’t look like photoshop elements was going to open but it finally did. whew.  I lost all the mail I had saved in folders in my mail program though.  I guess I was tooooo far behind in updating and it acted like it was a new computer!  So I will just type my name here today because I don’t have the html code saved in an email anymore in my blog folder.  Five years of stuff, gone. boo. I am working on another system for saving stuff!!!

ttul!

Cutest Birthday Card of the Year….One of Them Anyway…hahaha

Hi everyone! This box card makes me so happy!  I love it so much!  So fun to color and put together!  Making a card like this is like starting out on a journey and you’re not quite sure where you’ll end up! lol ❤

This card was for one of our grandsons, Cedryk. Not curly blonde hair but just as cute! ❤

Our grandsons found the new show Adventure Agents a year or so ago and boy have they had fun!  When I asked Ced what he wanted for his birthday card this year he told me a boy cutting down trees!  I said, “ok”…told myself not to panic yet… lol  Came home and started looking through the stash and thinking! This is where I ended up and I was thrilled! YAY!  So thankful to have this cardmaking challenge to keep me smiling!

So here’s some more pictures!

I stamped, cut him out by hand and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Timber!!!!

from the side… I had to trim down the MFT grass dies to fit.

a little bit more of the perspective/depth…

It folds flat to fit in an envelope!  YAY!

I hope he made you smile… thank you for stopping by my blog!  I love sharing my cards with you!

P.S.  be watching…tonight central time… 11 p.m. (12 a.m. Eastern) is the NEW Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release!  I have a card to share on Thursday for the StAMPtember Blog Party… it’s a Christmas card!  So come back and I appreciate it so much when you shop through my links!  THANK YOU!

Hello Bluebird Fishin’ Hole Shadowbox Card…

Meet me at the fishin’ hole!  It’s a beautiful day! lol Here’s the card I made for our grandson Corrin who just turned 12!  He loves to fish with Grandpa!

I saved this idea from Instagram/designs by mommajean when I saw it last year.  So much fun!  I made the video after I gave it to Corrin and he showed me that it looked like the fish were swimming when you bend it back and forth!  ❤

I didn’t have a shadowbox die set that would work for what I wanted to do so I had to make this up as I went.  No instructions, just some Math! lol

Stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird,  Memory Box and Lawn Fawn. I’ll link below.

I stamped, die cut the images and colored with Copic Sketch markers. Since alcohol marker ink saturates through to the back side, I die cut a piece of white cardstock to glue behind the colored images.

Bushes and grass dies in the background from Hello Bluebird…

I took a lot of pictures!

Memory Box dies for the greens and coral in the water…

I used a piece of acetate to cover the opening…

Distress Oxide inks for the blues and sandy shore…

Corrin really liked it and the money in the envelope too! lol

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!

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Puppy Birthday Card…

Meet Maggie! lol  There’s a new toy poodle at our middle daughter’s house. So I had to make our youngest grandson a cute Magic Iris Maggie card for his 6th birthday in January.  So fun!  Charley loves it!

I used the Memory Box Birdhouse die set for the doghouse because I don’t own the Lawn Fawn birdhouse die.

The dog dish and bone are an old big punch or were they an old Quickutz die…I can’t remember!  I looked through so much stuff to find something that would work! lol

The Lawn Fawn design team is so inspiring!  It’s nice as a card designer/maker not to always have to come up with a new idea!

Here it is closed… pull the arrow tab down and it opens like a camera lens, sorta kinda!  hehe

and a video… it’s bad but gives you an idea of how it works.

NEW Memory Box Dies…Sweet Bay Collage and Verdant Leaf Collage…

Hi everyone! Two clean and simple cards to share today and I like them!  YAY!  I made a regular A2 size card with the NEW Sweet Bay Collage die, using it on a fold on the inside, as a pop up!

So pretty with this popular pattern paper from Hobby Lobby!  For the two bluegreen cuts, I die cut, then trimmed at the top and the bottom of the stem, then added/adhered the two leaves that completely cut out.  So pretty with the white contrast!

But then you have to decorate the front! haha  I just used the Rectangle Basics die set and die cut rectangles to fit the sentiment from poppystamps Friendship and Kindness clear stamp set.  I heat embossed in black detail powder on the bluegreen cardstock from TE.

I should’ve turned it toward the light better to catch the shine of the embossing powder!

My second card, I was inspired by a friend who sent me a card in the new mini slim card size 3 ½ x 6!  The new Verdant Leaf Collage is the perfect size for it!  I have another idea to try with this die but I wanted to go ahead and post because otherwise I just get too many pictures and the post gets too long!

The green turned out kind of blah. ugh. eek!  It’s Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness Oxides, then water and gold spatters.

Sentiments from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set and Friendship Floral Heart stamp set. I black heat embossed the Thank You on vellum.

Before I go, I want to tell you the measurements for the pop up inside piece on the first card.

  • For the first card cut your 8 ½ x 11 piece of white cardstock in half, exactly 5 ½ inches.  Leave one but cut the other one down to 8 inches, so it’s 5 ½ x 8.
  • Die cut the Sweet Bay Collage die centered in the 5 ½ x 8 piece, then score that piece at 4 inches… that will be your mountain fold.
  • Then I scored 1 ⅜ inches from both sides of that center score line and those will be your valley folds.
  • Then all that’s left is to finish everything and glue the longer sides to the inside of your regular A2 size card base with a side fold.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thank you for stopping by!  Make something today!  Copy or try something new! hehe  I have a collection of ideas I want to copy…we need a national copy day so I get some made! lol  ttul!

Memory Box NEW Pine Tree, Wooded Glen and Little Orchard Collage Dies and Snowmen Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a card to share today using some of the new dies from the newest Memory Box release.  I tried to achieve a tunnel card look but thinner! hehe  I kinda succeeded.

Next time I think I need to add another ¼ inch crease on each side though.  Here’s a picture of the fold I used.

This piece is 5 ¾ inches wide, 5 ½ inches tall.  Next time I make it, I’m going to make it 6 ¼ inches wide.  This 5 ¾ in. piece has 3  ¼ in. scores, then it’s 4¼ in. then 3 more ¼ in. scores.

For 6 ¼ inches wide, you would have 4  ¼ inch scores, then 4¼ in. and 4 more ¼ in. scores.  I hope this makes sense…I will keep you posted it how it works!

Here’s what the ends look like.  A2 size.

I glued the panels to the folds and the top Pine Tree Collage die cut glues on top of the last ¼ in. fold on both sides.

I used the snowmen from the Snowmen and cloud from the Snowmen Snowglobe die.

Aren’t the cute!  I used Sakura Black and White glaze pens to embellish them and the green, red and brown are Copic markers.

The blue background is Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink that I brushed on with TE blending brushes. Spattered with water, white and black acrylic inks

Season’s Greetings message is from the new Christmas Greetings stamp set.  So many neat sentiments and varying sizes too in this set.

That’s it for today…thank you all so much for your cards and emails and comments.  I had no idea how much family and friends carry you when you’re suffering. I appreciate it.  Makes me teary talking about it and I know if you were here you’d cry with me!  ❤

Memory Box Evergreen Sky, Lamplight Tree, Small Pine Tree and Tall Fir Collage Tunnel Card and Video…

Happy World Cardmaking day to all my cardmaking friends and paper crafters!

My last post inspired me to attempt to turn the same dies into a tunnel, diorama, shadow box card that collapses and is mailable!

So here’s the video, click this link to watch it in High Definition which is so much better! And I did get the tree glued back together and you can’t even tell! YAY! lol

I tried to get pictures of the sparkle but it’s really hard to capture glitter paper and do it justice. You’ll just have to believe me on how beautiful this cardstock is! ❤

Here I held it under the light trying to show how light shines down through it…

Memory Box NEW Snowglobe Dies and Sales!

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy to start sharing Christmas creations with the NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!!!

I love snowglobes and I have 4 ready to share.  I was going to put them all in one post but I got to thinking it might be confusing so I think I’ll do them one at a time.  Rest assured, you will want all four of the dies though. hehe

I want to escape to here! The roaring fire, the peaceful snowfall… my soul says yes!

The blog post right before this one, I posted a video on how these dies go together…click HOME and scroll down to see the video in the previous post.  Very easy to put together!

Here’s how I put this together…

*die cut the Snowglobe Backer die in heavy white cardstock

*die cut the Snowmen Snowglobe in heavy white and TE Blue Corn cardstock (back layer)

*stamp and heat emboss in white embossing powder the Birch Press Design Celestial Waves stamp that looks like snow on the Blue Corn sky, then inlay the sky into the white Snowmen background die cut

*die cut the Radiant Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock, I just used the frame part (middle layer)

*die cut the Cabin Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock (top layer)

*die cut the cabin from TE Toffee cardstock and the snow from Memory Box glitter cardstock pad

*die cut the smoke from a piece of vellum

*hand cut a square of vellum to go behind the cabin and color it yellow on the backside to mimic light in the windows of the cabin

*I die cut the cabin in TE Cherry Pop to get the door and the chimney

*I die cut Santa and his reindeer in shiny black cardstock, if you don’t have that, you could heat emboss it with black embossing powder or color it with a black glaze pen or cover it with glossy accents to get a shiny die cut

I use a piece of  ⅝  inch scor-tape on the inside bottom of the Snowglobe Backer die cut. That holds each layer in place.

I’m so happy with how this turned out!  Perfect little gift, or tag or I can see these all over the Christmas tree as ornaments!

Thank you for clicking over and I’ll be back with the other three I’ve made so far.  ❤

Boy Birthday Card with Lawn Fawn’s Pivot Pop Up Die and Waffleflower Batter Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Back with another boy birthday card!  I saw the idea for this card on a fb group.  I bought a cut file from the Silhouette store for the front.  I cut it on my Scan and Cut machine.

I used a combination of Waffleflower stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiments.  The cute ball players are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

The pivot pop up card mechanism die is from Lawn Fawn.

 

The cloud is the smaller of the Memory Box Marshmallow cloud set.  The hill border from Lawn Fawn.

I’ve always loved silhouettes… so fun to be able to cut my own!

A couple more inside shots and then a video of how it works….

These pattern papers are from my stash.  Oldies but perfect for this, from Lasting Impressions for Paper.

 

 

 

Linking up to the SSS Wednesday Moving Parts Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Summer card!  It was a shame the boys didn’t get to play this year.  I’ll link up what I used below.

Waffleflower Tumble On Spinner Card…

Today I’m sharing one of the birthday cards I made for our oldest granddaughter Atalyssa, aka Attie.  She is an amazing gymnast so I had to use this new at the time Tumble on set from Waffleflower.  Sooo fun!

This party was for five of our grandkids and Lizzie, who’s birthday is the day before Attie’s planned a Masquerade party.  It was so much crazy fun!  😀

Here’s Attie making her card spin…

Fortunately she was able to get a few competitions in this year and we’re so proud of her!  All around 2nd place at this one.  YAY Attie! (she’s the girl that looks like she’s behind the number one block)

Here’s the card sliding by itself.  There was a gal on Instagram that shared her card for Waffleflower and I basically copied her.

I stamped, die cut, colored and paper pieced her leo with black glitter cardstock.

I gave her a wood floor and brick wall because of the gym she goes to.

Thanks for stopping by to see this cutie in action!

Here’s a few of the things I used to make this card…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Whatever the Weather…

Hi everyone!  It’s time for a new Challenge at SSS Wednesday today!  The company we’re featuring on our blogs is Lawn Fawn and the theme is ‘whatever the weather’!  So fun!  It’s a pretty, sunny day on my card today!

I made a short video so you can see the action…

I used the new Magic Iris dies, Dandy Day stamp set, Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments, Simple Grassy Hillsides dies and Stitched Rectangles dies.

Here it is closed…

Here it is open…

Aren’t they cute?!  ❤

Distress Oxides for the background.  Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn and ink blending brushes. I did some water drop spattering on the yellow and green spatters on the grass pieces.

Closed again…

Open again…

These dies are an investment but I can see myself using them over and over again. Two of our grandsons have made cards with them so far. They really enjoyed it too!  😀
