Sending You Some Vitamin Sea!

Hi everyone! Check out the latest release from Memory Box, ‘June Island Vacation’!  I had fun playing with these products!

I embossed the fish with the NEW Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder, then I used the NEW coordinating Ocean Fish stencil set to color the fish!  It worked great!

I have no idea what colors these fish should be! lol  I used my mug of dye ink blender brushes!  I didn’t add any ink, I just used the ink that was in the brushes and used the green, blue and bluegreen brushes over yellow.  Orange and red together on the other!

The Ocean Fish Folder comes with matching dies, so I die cut the fish after coloring.

For the background piece, I used the Memory Box Underwater 3d embossing folder on white cardstock, then used my Distress Oxide blender brushes to add color.  Again, just the color that was in the brushes.  I guess I was too lazy to get out the ink pads!  Funny girl yesterday! lol

I used mounting tape to mount the fish to the background piece and added some clear Fairy Drops.

The sentiment is heat embossed from the Deep Blue Ocean clear stamp set released last year.  Awesome sentiments and images in this set.  Dies to match too!

I saw Memory Box Dave’s card on the Memory Box website using the Kelp Collage die, also from last year so I used it too!

The last thing I did was add some clear glitter pen to the fish.  I love how it makes it look like shimmery fish!

This will be a fun card to send to someone feeling under the weather.  I love vitamin C anyway… it’s a staple around this house! lol

BBQ Platform Pop up Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  We had a fun holiday weekend with a super muggy 4th!  whoa… super nice days and then boom…super high humidity and high temp.  Definitely know it’s Summer!

One of our son-in-law’s is a great cook!  So I made this card just for him.

I have two more pictures and I’ll post them.  If I had this card still I would retake the pictures because the back sign is blurry…f stop too low! lol I was in a hurry to get to the party! Good thing I’d snapped a phone picture!

 

I colored the stamped and die cut images with Copic Sketch Markers.  Then assembled the card just like the Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up video.  The Boss of the BBQ sentiment is from a discontinued Taylored Expressions set.

 

So fun…now it’s time for lunch!  This card makes me hungry!

One more birthday platform pop up to post, then it’s back to Memory Box cards!

Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up Birthday Beach Card…

I have a few of these interactive cards to share with you in the next few days.  The kids all have them now.  I forgot to take a picture to show that it fits in an envelope but it does!

I used some Lawn Fawn stamp sets for the images and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

I sure had fun coloring these.  I used Copic Sketch markers and a little white gel pen.

I had to make the sun because I didn’t have a big enough sun die.  I used a Memory Box slimline die and stitch circle die.

I use pattern paper for the interactive platform die cut.  It works better if it’s not a heavyweight cardstock, in my opinion.

I found a yo yo stamp in a Paper Smooches stamp set.  This card is for Henry and he’s quite the yo yo expert!  I love it!

Holler if you have any questions!  My last photo is a phone picture…a little bit different color wise.

Baseball Birthday Boy Card…

Hi everyone! Always birthdays happening around here! Rogan turned 8 June 1st and I’m just now getting this posted.  I don’t think I’ve gotten all the other birthdays posted either so this is probably good that I’m getting this one done!

I really liked this card!  Usually I like to do something interactive but there’s not enough sports stamps in my stash so the interactive part came on the inside.  I really like the sets I used though and am getting a lot of use out of them!

I had some baseball washi tape that kinda covered up the fact that this die has scallop edges.

I used An Altenew Alphabet set on the front and the stamps and dies from Sunny Studio and Waffleflower.  Here’s another card I used the Batter set for.

Rogan likes to keep busy playing sports or helping his dad.

I loved using the alphabet for his name and embellishing it… now I want to do it everytime but I probably better not. lol

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope your day is a HOME RUN! 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!

Memory Box Joy and Cheer, Large Pine Cone and Gentle Pine Needle Sprig Dies Card…

Hi everyone! How are you?  It’s cooling off here in Iowa and the days have been beautiful! I hope you’re enjoying the Fall where you are too!

My card today reminds me of the fancy ones you get from businesses with all the gold foiling and personalized touches!  I was tickled that this came out leaning toward a masculine feeling.  Sometimes Tim needs cards for business associates so this one would work great!

I used the NEW Memory Box Woodsy Plaid 6×6 double sided papers pad.  Gorgeous designs!

I don’t know why flat photos turn out different colors but the plaid is pretty anyway…somewhere between the colors in the photos! lol

Really straight forward card… die cut the images and sentiment from Bazzill Gold Foil cardstock, HERE… glue the pinecone together… die cut the sentiment backer from one of the blues from the Memory Box Stormy Blue 6×6 cardstock pad. 

I used foam mounting tape on the cone and the sentiment.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I finished it with a piece of lighter blue from the same Stormy Blue cardstock pad and stamped an image/Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from the Yuletide Moments stamp set… I love this set!  Beautiful images for the front and inside of the card!

 

The gorgeous pearls are new from Starlitstudio!  I love having the smaller sizes!  Thank you Cindy!  She has them in other colors also… HERE… there are so many in the little bottle, it doesn’t look like I used any!

This card is 4 ⅜ in x 6 ¼ in so it will fit in an A7 envelope with room to spare, no corners ruined in mailing.

The pinecone is so pretty… it really catches the light and shows the dimension that Dave designed into the die!

Memory Box You Anchor Me Card…

It’s always fun to have a masculine card in the stash!  Today’s card is the new Memory Box You Anchor Me stamp set and coordinating dies!

I stamped the anchor in TE’s Blue Corn ink, it’s a dark blue….love it!  Not black. hehe  Die cut it with the coordinating die, popped it up on a Memory Box die cut Wrapped Circles die cut, then matted it with a Circle Basics die cut in dark brown. 

I got out the Memory Box End of My Rope set… don’t you love that name?! lol  Decided I liked one, die cut it in white cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 

Some woodgrain pattern paper…two sentiments stamped in the MISTI in Ranger Coffee Archival Ink from the You Anchor Me set.

Then on the inside, a couple more sentiments.

I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die set. I should’ve stamped one of the little fish (in the set) inside with the words too!

I popped the anchor and rope up with a little 3M foam mounting tape, the 1/16th inch stuff so It’s still CAS and mailable!

Thank you for stopping by and come back!  Christmas is coming soon!  Can’t wait!

Memory Box Eucalyptus Collage and Thanks Cursive Script Circle Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have two Clean and Simple (CAS) cards to share with you today!  When I saw this new MB Eucalyptus die I immediately thought it’d be good for sympathy/thinking of you cards, which I never have enough of.

I die cut Eucalyptus Collage in one of the greens from the MB Lush Green 6×6 Cardstock Collection pad. The background paper is from the MB Garden Folly 6×6 pattern paper pad.  I love the little flower with the pink centers behind the collage! The green panel is cut with one of the MB Rectangle Basics die set.

Now that I’m posting this, other ideas come to mind. lol Remember MB Dave’s napkin watercoloring technique and how you add gold to it?!  Yes!  I think touches of gold on simple watercoloring would be so pretty!

I used 3m foam mounting tape to lift the collage panel.  It’s the big roll and not very thick…

I heat embossed the sentiment in white powder with a sentiment from the poppystamps Diamond Sentiments stamp set. A ton of great sentiments in this set.

A2 size card…

My second card is a mini slim size… 3 ½ in. x 6 in.

I was struggling with what to do with this circle die… the first card I made was UGLY! lol  Now I wish I’d taken these pictures with a black background! ugh

Very simple composition.   I die cut MB Thanks Cursive Script Circle and Stained Glass Floral in white, then trimmed out the floral part from the square.

I’m giving the MB new Banner Sentiment Trio die set a work out this release!  I die cut the middle size, folded it in half and stapled it onto the circle.

Then I stapled on the floral die cut.  The Tim Holtz mini stapler at work again!

It’s a sweet, cute card IRL!  I suppose I should’ve tried a third time to get better pictures! ha.  It’s been one of those picture weeks… I can always tell when the season is changing!  I’ll quit whining and finish up! lol

Thank you for stopping by today!  ‘preciate it!

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!

poppystamps Whittle Dies Series Day Two…

Welcome back to the 2nd day of Whittle cuteness!  My first card today I decided to make a slimline card and use the NEW Memory Box Twiggy Alphabet too!

I used one of the pattern papers from the pretty Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim pad and two Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Ocean Blue and Fresh Aqua for the die cut letters.

Then I proceeded to create a little scene below with Whittle Dies…

So cute!  I die cut Memory Box cardstock 6×6 paper pads again using Sunny Orange, Berry Red, Earth Neutral and Lush Green.  The background/sky/water is from Fresh Aqua.

Nothing hard, I didn’t even do any inking on these die cut pieces!  Stayed with the clean look.  A little white gel pen at the end.

Next up…moo…bleat! Look at these fun sentiments! poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments.

I hope you laughed outloud! hahahahahaha  I made one barn… cut it in half and made two mini slim cards!

Look at this cutie goat!  It’s so encouraging! lol

I die cut the Whittle Goat in white Neenah Classic Crest and using my TE gray blending brush for oxides,  I just went around it with the brush, no added ink. Then I colored the nose and ears with a pink Copic.  This was my third try at coloring the goat. I liked it the best.

I did some cloud inking… die cut and colored a fence…die cut some grass and the sun.

Next card….maybe I should stamp, “You’re Kind Of A Big Deal” on the inside! Actually it would work for both cards! lol  Same sentiment stamp set.

Here I colored the cow the same way as I did the goat, with the TE blending brush I have reserved for Oxide inks in brown. I just used the dirty brush, no added ink.

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on TE Oreo cardstock.

I think she’s barn with it…don’t you?! ❤

Well happy barn day and week to you!

poppystamps Whittle Dies Two Day Series…

Hi everyone!  We’ll start with food Whittles! lol There are so many of these cute little dies! I need a two week series! (not just two days) lol  Christmas is coming though!  I’m getting anxious to see what Memory Box/poppystamps/Birchpress Designs will have for us!

My three cards today are a 4 bar size, 3 ⅜ in x 4 ⅞ in.  I love this smaller size for the Whittle dies!

We’re a taco lovin’ family so I had to use the sentiments in the Life is Sweet stamp set.  “You guac my world” !  The Happy Birthday from the new Marzipan Greetings stamp set and dies ended up being the tomato! lol Time for lunch! haha   I love the play on words though!  So FUN!

I used one of the Memory Box Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out dies to make the center frame.  I used two greens from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Whittle Avocado and Whittle Taco and Nacho cuts from the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads also, Sunny Orange and Lush Green.

I used a pink Copic marker for cheeks and white gel pen for accents. A yummy birthday card! lol

Next….”Heres the scoop” Sentiments from the same Life is Sweet stamp set.

I kept this one CAS, clean and simple.  I cut off the tail of the word balloon from the poppystamps Word Balloons die set… I’m using this die a lot!

Stamped it with the sentiment from Life is Sweet in coffee Ranger Archival ink and inked the edges with Distress Gathered Twigs ink and a mini ink blending tool.  This ink and tool are always out on my table.

I love the detail on this cone!  poppystamps Whittle Ice Cream Cone, die cut in kraft cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs.  The ice cream I cut in kraft also and colored dark chocolate with Copic Sketch Markers.

A radio talk show host I listen to sometimes,  always says “living the dream” if someone asks him how he is.   The last couple years have been closer to living the nightmare in our lives! lol ugh. Some young gal pulled out in front of me on the four lane last night, trying to kill us all!  My horn works, didn’t do any good…she was oblivious!  So I’ll stop worrying about deer running out in front of me and start worrying about dumb drivers!

I adhered them to the card with foam mounting tape.  Oh, the white panel is a Memory Box die from the Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles Set. (I see it’s no longer available, I added some other options to the links below)

The pink cardstock is from the Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Cardstock pad.

Next…”Do all things with Love” from the Marzipan Greetings set.

The only thing food related on this cutie card is the color!  Orange! lol  From the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pad Sunny Orange. (yellows in it too)

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment, “this is a paper hug”!

I die cut a heart in the two colors with the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die.

I die cut the poppystamps Heart Tag Trio in two colors.  Heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder and put the card together.

I think this would be a fun card to make in any color and send off to friends, kids, grands or family!

I was going to put my two other cards in this post too but that’s so much!  I’m gonna post again tomorrow with those two.

So this is all for today! hehe  See you tmr!

Memory Box Deep Blue Ocean and Bubble Border…

Hi everybody!  Working through the Memory Box release…. thinking of you and I had to use this Vitamin Sea sentiment again!  Many of you know me and I’m a vitamin C user!  hehe

I started by inking a mini slim line panel with Tumbled Glass oxide ink, lightly marked where the circles were with a pencil, then stamped the school of fish stamp from the Deep Blue Ocean stamp set randomly over the larger circles.  Then I stamped the ocean greenery images from the same set in dark greens.

Then I covered the panel with a piece of vellum…like you’re looking through glass…

I inked the top panel with Oxide inks, Salty Ocean and my Peacock Feathers brush without adding more ink. Spattered it with water.

Let it dry, then stamp the sentiments from the set using the MISTI and Ranger Archival Black ink.

I colored and die cut the cute little fishy with Copic markers but then I decided I didn’t like the white around it so I fussy cut it and mounted it on the panel with mounting tape.

On the inside I stamped the Feel Better Soon stamp from the set.

This is a great set… it can go for any occasion with the variety of sentiments!  Birthday, Just Because, Sympathy and get well!

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful how can it be the end of August day!!!

ttul,

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

Thank you for stopping by! ttul
