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

ttul!

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.

Thank you for stopping by!

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!
