Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm Release and Copic Sale…

Welcome to my blog today!  I have a card to share with one of the new stamps sets from the NEW Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm Release! 

Since it’s February and all about hearts… I went with a heart presentation for this Get Well Card using the NEW Well Wishes stamp set.

I used the ‘feel better soon’ stamp to create a 5 ¼ inch square background by stamping it four times on gray with dark gray ink.

I love how easy it stamped!  I just used an acrylic block and it stamped beautifully!  I stamped it on a Honeybee Stacking Hearts Die die cut in red. Backed it with a Honeybee Scallop Hearts Die cut in white.

‘You are on my heart’ is from the new SSS stamp set also.  I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder on black.

I love how crisp it all looks…and cheery too!

It’s 5 ½ inches square so it will require the extra ounce postage to snail mail.  Worth it!  hehe

 

NOW for What’s on SALE at SSS! I need some refills so I better order!

Birch Press Design Adornment Peony Card…

Hi friends and papercrafters!  A CAS card to share with you today.

Inlaid die cutting with Birch Press Design’s New Adornment Peony die. I die cut the flower in white and ink blended Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink on the flower petals and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks on the leaves with Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. This is an awesome set…the solid dies for backing the die piecing parts is in included!

I die cut the top panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles Die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the poppystamps  Diamond Sentiments clear stamp set with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink in the MISTI.

I added a scatter of several Memory Box Clear Fairy Drops.

It’s lighter, pinker than my pictures show. ugh.  I tried. lol

It’s unusually warm here so far today…55˚ but suppose to go down to 12˚ before the day is over!  eek!  Guess I’ll stay in and keep working.

poppystamps Tall Curved Heart Arch Card…

Happy Valentines Day!  Here I am at the last minute sharing one more heart card!

I die cut the new poppystamps Tall Curved Heart Arch two dies from white cardstock and colored both with Copic Sketch Markers.  R24, G82, G85, E42 and E44.

I love this sentiment from poppystamps Marzipan Greetings.  I inked with Versamark in the Misti and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I die cut two poppystamps Tall Curve Background from a piece of Simple Stories woodgrain pattern paper and layered them on the poppystamps Oval Fold Frame die cut in Memory Box 6×6 Garland Stripes and Dots pattern paper pad.

I colored a scrap of white with R24 and die cut some small hearts using the small heart die that comes with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die. I glued them to the oval that is a die in the Oval Fold Frame set.

It’s an A2 size card that should mail easily with one postage stamp.

It turned out fun!  I always love kraft and paper hugs! ❤

Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch Card…

Hi everyone! Enjoying some sunshine today and warmer temps! yay!  I decided to use this new Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch die to make a love card!  It’s that time of year!

I die cut the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die in a white panel of cardstock. Then I ran it back through with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate die.

I die cut a red heart with the Double Stitch Happy Heart also.

I used Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Berry Red, Fresh Aqua and Lush Green.

For the sentiment I heat embossed the sentiment from the poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp set in white on black cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I added a few Christmas Fairy Jewels.

I adhered the bird and the sentiment with mounting tape.

Thank you for stopping by today! I’ll be back again soon!

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

Memory Box House Frame Background LOVE Birdhouse…

Hi everyone! I pulled out a bunch of dies and designed a Wood Grain LOVE birdhouse.  Valentines Day is coming…it’s hard to believe we’re already into the second week of 2022!

I started by die cutting the MB House Frame Background and the heart opening that comes in this die set.

Then I die cut the window and snow/frosting from the MB Gingerbread House Frame Die set.

I cut the MB Wood Grain Planks one time and used them to put siding on the house frame background. Then I ink blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress ink with the mini blending tool.

Then I glued everything together and wanted a sentiment and a branch!

I cut the branch from the MB Serene Bird and Branch die set and glued it flat to the background panel.

I used the MB Pinpoint Leaf Plate for the background panel.  This panel is larger than an A2 size which I really like!  It’s 4 ½ in. x 5 ¾ in. It will fit in an A6 or A7 envelope and still mail for one postage stamp. I inked the edges of the panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini blending tool also. I really like this die!

I added some natural narrow jute before I glued the house down.

I decided the heart opening could be the ‘O’ for the word LOVE.  I decided to use the new poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet Outline and Background stamp set and the coordinating dies.  Super fun alphabet set! ❤

I die cut in white cardsock and stamped the outline in Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.  I just used an acrylic block to stamp… I only had to stamp the L twice. lol 

I like it! YAY! lol  My favorite colors…or I should say my go to colors! haha

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy cardmaking New Year to you!

Birch Press Design Kinsley Heart Layers Card…

Back today with a heart card…when I looked at this die pkg, I got the idea to try it in succulent colors…

I wanted some texture so I started with the new Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Plate die for the background in TE Sweet Basil cardstock, regular A2 size.

Then I decided I wanted to use the new Memory Box Woodgrain Heart die to layer the heart layers, die cut in TE Toffee and inked with Distress Gathered Twigs ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I always like to have a sentiment so I used the new Memory Box Sending Love Posh Script again… three layers of cardstock, the top layer is inked with regular Distress inks… some purples.

The new Birch Press Design Kinsley Heart layers are die cut, Layer C in white and inked for the purple,  Layer B in TE Peapod cardstock and inked in TE peapod ink and Layer A in TE Sweet Basil and inked in TE Sweet Basil ink.

I tied it up with that fun May Arts twine and it was done.

Valentines with NEW Memory Box Dies…

Lots of pictures to share with you today!  You can tell by the colors here, it’s my usual Valentine ‘look’! ❤

I started with the black/plaid card and ended up with so many heart pieces by the time I cut the new Sprinkle Heart collage die in a few colors!

That led to the next card, then that card led to the next…you know how it goes when you have pieces and dies spread around! lol

I used the new Memory Box Sprinkle Heart Collage in kraft color and red cardstock.  The two complete hearts are from the smallest heart in the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die set.

The sentiments are from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set.

I used one of the plaid papers from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

 

Here’s the heart cuts in white from the Sprinkle Heart Collage.  I really liked how this turned out.  I had cuts from the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out too.  So I just messed around til it pleased my eyes!

I used a sentiment from the poppystamps Greeting Basics set for inside the heart.

I don’t know about you but I’m still using up all the twine!  I like Valentines day as a carry over for using red.  It’s my favorite color! lol

This card was inspired by an old card that I have sitting out on my book shelves in my office. It’s older than my blog! But I still love the card, so here’s this year’s addition! lol

Do you have any of the Memory Box 3D embossing folders yet?  They are all gorgeous!  This one is called Gracious Leaves.

Then more plaid paper from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

I die cut and inked the new Memory Box Woodgrain Heart and then die cut the new Sending Love Posh Script 3 times in red, glued them together and adhered to the heart.

I layered the plaid on to a piece of black cardstock also.

These 3 cards are all A2 size and flat to mail!

This last card is a small card, 3 ½ x 3 ½ inches.

I used some more pieces from all the die cuts I was making.  ❤  It makes me happy!  lol

The sentiment is from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set again.

I hope you’re inspired to make some fun CAS valentines to give to friends and family this year. ❤

More to come!  Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box Floral Bouquet Heart Card…

Hearts are just the best don’t you think? hehe I think it’s been awhile since I told the story of my blog name.  In 1994 I started a new venture as a stamp store owner.  In trying to decide what to name the store, I finally settled on ‘Expressions With Heart’.  The phrase ‘expressions with heart’ was used in the Hero Arts catalog that year.  Something about creating expressions with heart and it just hit home with me!  I closed the store after 12 years and started blogging in 2009. I used the name again because I loved it and still love it after all these years!

Here’s the new Memory Box Floral Bouquet Heart die cut three times and layered over some of the new Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut out dies.

I just love the outside the lines stitch lines and then to have them double… hehe…swoon!

I used some more of the Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad from the Christmas release… so fun how it crosses over!

The love die cut is from the Memory Box Love Jotted Script die… stamped sentiments are from the new Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set.

An A2 size card…pretty straight forward.

The Floral Bouquet heart would be pretty colored or cut and pieced!  So fun!

Thank you for stopping by today! Stay tuned… more hearts to come!  ❤

Memory Box Champagne Heart and Leafy Heart Cards…

Valentines….bring back memories of sitting on the living room floor cutting out cute images from dime store Valentine booklets.  I remember being so thrilled when they made them punch out! lol  That dates me! lol

Now we’ve gone from blah punches to die cutting and all sorts of amazing crafting!

On my first card today I used the NEW Memory Box 3D Heart Bouquet Embossing Folder for the background panel. WOW!  It is so pretty!

I decided to just cut some dies to see what I could put together on top of the panel.  I love the Champagne Heart in gold glitter cardstock.

I die cut the Leafy Heart in Mint Julep cardstock… swiped on some Versamark ink and heat embossed it with glitter gold embossing powder.  I really liked the unusual, soft color of this green with the gold.

Then I just played around deciding what to use and this is how it ended up! I wish you could see it IRL!  I need to send it to one of you!  😀  Somebody claim it! ❤

Be My Valentine is a sentiment die from last year’s release.  So pretty!  I love how vintage but still elegant it looks for this card.

The next card is one I made a few weeks ago using the New Memory Box Happy Heart Collage Die again.  I got a little carried away with it but hey, it’s nice to use a die three times right off the bat! lol

Here I layered, with foam mounting tape, the Happy Heart cut panel over a Leafy Heart cut. I stamped Valentines Day on it first though.

I went over the ‘Happy’ with a metallic paint pen. Then I added little dots with Ranger Liquid Pearls, gold pearl.

A totally different look than the first card! I need to send it to someone too! Somebody claim it?  I think I need to use this Leafy Heart die some more!

Memory Box and poppystamps Valentine Cards…

Hello everyone! I die cut the new poppystamps Confetti Heart Plate die in white twice and red cardstock once and made three cards.

The red panel I adhered to a white cardbase and stamped the XO  from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines stamp set. So cute!

I die cut the new Memory Box Antique Heart Label die in white and red cardstock too.  For this card I used parts of both cuts as you can see in the pictures. I did a little more XO stamping and stamped i love you in the label cut from the same stamp set.

I die cut a vellum heart using the new Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die set and using foam mounting tape, I adhered the Label cut to the vellum. Then I used Tombow Mono Multi glue to adhere the vellum to the card front. Keep the glue hidden.  😀

The red hearts from this red panel die cut, I used on the next card…

When you die cut these heart dies, there are surrounding stitch lines.  So I used the largest size to get the largest heart cut and using the next size down heart, I die cut in the vellum again and cut the double stitch lines!  I cut again in the pattern paper.  I love this pinstripe looking paper pad! This gives you an idea what the die looks like. (not actual sizes)

Then I had the poppystamps Stitched Envelope laying on my desk too…there went my brain speeding away… haha  I’m not sure which version I like the best? So I took pictures of it both ways!

It does add some ‘heart’!  ❤  Special Delivery indeed… from the same stamp set.

Now I’m thinking the little tag would be super cute sticking out of the envelope too! :O

It’s from the new poppystamps Heart Tag Trio die… I’m thinking it’s a must have… I used it on a card last week too that I haven’t posted yet… I will!

I think I want to make a CAS card using the envelope and the tag now. lol

I better finish this post first, right?!  Here’s card #3…

Are you like me and love ink blending?  It’s so nice to use all these color ink pads that we buy! I have so many ink pads from my 24 years of stamping!  I always want to buy more though… it’s nuts! I know I’m not alone! haha Raise your hand!

Here I used Distress Oxide inks and the Taylored Expressions ink blending brushes.  I was so fortunate to receive them for Christmas! They are so nice!  The handles are nice and sturdy and they are just so colorful and fun!  Every card making session is an inky party!

I used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn and Wilted Violet.  I stamped the sentiment on a heart from the same heart die set and using the same clear sentiment stamp set using Mowed Lawn.

Matte Doodlebug Sprinkles to embellish the heart and sentiment.

Holler if you have any questions! Thank you so much for clicking over and the Valentine Countdown is on!  More cards coming!

Memory Box Friendship Floral Heart Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends…back again today with a card for Memory Box.  I’ve been wanting to get this NEW Floral Heart colored up from the Friendship Floral Heart stamp set and finally did this week!  YAY!

I stamped and heat embossed with versamark ink and Ranger Gold Detail embossing powder. *TIP: I recommend stamping clear stamps several times with different inks on scrap paper to get them stamping good…maybe it’s just me but after stamping 7 practice times or so, I’m much happier when I stamp the real deal.

Oh, I stamped on Canson Smooth Bristol… the orange pad. I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush markers… photo below of the colors.

I used water and a paintbrush to move the color around…basic watercoloring, drying between layers.

Then a little spritz of water, some white and gold spatters. I wasn’t very heavy handed with them this time.

The background is Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink blended on with a TE brush then some Peacock Feather Oxide spatters, some gold spatters and some black TE watercolor spatters over that.

It’s a 5 ½ inch square card.

I was tempted to place it off the page and made an A2 size card but I resisted and left it complete this time… next time! lol

I stamped the sentiments from the same set on vellum… don’t die of shock but I used an acrylic block this time to stamp! I’m gonna experiment… I love all my stamp positioning tools but I struggle with heat embossing sentiments with a positioner!  :O  I know… do you have an opinion?  curious!

I’m gonna let you go and get on with your Saturday!  Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me show and tell!
