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!

Simon Says Stamp Memory Box Exclusive Stamp and Die Set…

Hi everyone!  It’s a busy, busy time with tons of new stuff this month at Simon Says Stamp!  I have a card to share today I made with the new Memory Box Exclusive clear stamp set , True Friend.

I stamped the main floral image from the set with Distress Anitque Linen ink and no line colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Y11, 13, 15, 18 and YG11, 13, 17.  If you haven’t tried no line coloring yet, this would be a great set to start out with! 

Here’s a picture of it just colored and before I cut out the innards. lol

I die cut the brown card panel from the Memory Box Garland Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pad with Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles.

I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Banner die with a yellow from the Memory Box Sunny Orange 6×6 cardstock pad.

I was surprised how easy it was to color!  It reminded me of coneflowers so that’s what I went with.

Here’s a picture of the set and the coordinating die…

I love it!  I’m going to have to order the die set! It looks like it cuts out the white between the flowers!  I love the sentiments too.

It’s Simon Says Stamp 12th Anniversary of STAMPtember!  There’s a big SSS release and collaborations with different companies all month!  So check in often and order quick because they do go fast!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I love hearing from 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!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoyed my cards!

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!!!

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 Floral Chain Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m seeing so many posts with flowers these days!  It was fun to die cut this NEW die from Memory Box, Floral Chain, in watercolor paper and paint it up!

I used the small tropical palette from Prima to paint the flowers and butterfly.

I used a lavender cardbase, then a black A2 size panel, poppystamps Lattice Plate cut in Neenah 110# Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, poppystamps Orchard Leaves die cut in watercolor paper and colored with the same palette and Memory Box Glade Butterfly die cut in watercolor paper and colored with the same palette.

Dewdrop Fairy Sugar glitter glue on the flower centers and butterfly wings.

On the inside I stamped this sentiment from Memory Box Joyful Moments clear stamp set with Ranger Archival Black ink.

On the front I used one of the banners from the new Memory Box Banner Sentiment Trio die set. I stamped the Happy Birthday from the new Memory Box Deep Blue Ocean clear stamp set and Ranger Archival Black ink.

This card screams Summer!  I hope the recipient will enjoy it!

Thank you for visiting my blog today… happy almost weekend to you!

Memory Box Flowering Cactus Slimline Card…

Hi everyone!  I had some fun coloring yesterday. Right now there’s a 30 day coloring challenge going on and I’m so glad I had this to color!

I stamped the NEW Memory Box Flowering Cactus in the MISTI with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, die cut it and colored it with these copics…

I stamped and die cut the sentiments from the Signature Greetings sets.  I cut just the die a couple more time so I could glue them together to get some lift. Easy gluing when the dies are like this!

I die cut the largest and next largest of the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slimline dies in TE Oreo cardstock and Neenah 110# white cardstock and layered everything up.

I used mounting foam tape behind the cactus to adhere it to the panels.

Succulents are so fun and popular right now!  Maybe sometime I’ll get to see then in the desert!

Thank you for stopping by! ttul!

poppystamps Geometric Deco Plate Card and Tag…

Hi everyone!  A week can sure go by fast when you have company….even when you have good intentions to get a blog post in!

Today I’m sharing a card and tag using poppystamps new Geometric Deco Plate and Art Deco Birthday Greetings clear stamp set!

Need to whip up a card in a hurry?  poppystamps and Memory Box to the rescue!

I needed a piece of copy paper to shim this plate die…angle it into the machine so you’re not bumping over a straight line!

I embossed the light green card panel underneath the cut with the same die to give it a little dimension… that little ‘extra’.  You don’t want the sandwich too tight though, the paper will crack.  I used the debossed side this time.

Memory Box Fresh Aqua 6×6 cardstock pad!  I love that the papers are already color coordinated for me!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m off to help Amanda put up peaches this afternoon.  We’ve been making yummy peach cobbler…. a great recipe HERE!  My mom used to make this one with rhubarb.  It says use a 9×9 pan but we use 9×13.

Below are links to what I used! All the stores are getting in new stuff!  Cindy is back from vacation and shipping @ starlitstudio.net.  SSS has a $5 off code good through 8/15  YUM521.  Scrapbook.com always has specials!

Memory Box Fantasy, Imperial, Stone Keep Castle Collage Dies Card…


Hi everyone! More new dies from Memory Box!  Check out these new dies to make a magical card for that special someone! I can see these being used for so many occasions and for both children and adults!

There are three new collage dies, top one is Fantasy Castle Collage, middle one is Imperial Castle Collage and bottom one is Stone Keep Castle Collage.  Fun names! I used 3 shades of gray from the Memory Box Earth Neutral Collection 6×6 cardstock pad.

I layered them on an A2 size card.  I wanted a little separation but not a lot so I could stick it in the mail.  So I took a piece of chipboard and put score-tape on both sides and made my own mounting strips but they aren’t foam or thick. It just gives a little bit of lift.  I really like how it looks IRL.

The peachy pink colors are from the Memory Box Berry Red Collection 6×6 cardstock pad.

I die cut the background pink color with the Memory Box Pinpoint Burst Plate die.

The sentiment is from the new Memory Box Majestic Achievements stamps and die set. I stamped it on the peachy pink color and trimmed it and layered it on the white die cut.  You wouldn’t need to do this but I did a lousy job stamping it on the die cut piece so I cut it out! lol  Super cute castle stamp, sentiments and banners.


Maybe you can see the dimension a little bit better in this picture.

 

and here’s the inside….I used the castle stamp and one of the sentiments in the stamp set.  Super cute!  Still room to sign!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy Summer weekend to you!

Memory Box Elegant Succulent Sentiments Card…

Hi everyone! This is a new stamp set from Memory Box with gorgeous succulent floral images and beautiful sentiments that are actually ones you would use!  ‘best wishes on your special day’, ‘wishing you the happiest birthday’, ‘just a little note to let you know I am thinking about you’, ‘when times are difficult let hope sustain you’ and the one I used on my card.

I did some distress ink smooshing with a piece of scrap acetate.  I like that it’s a little easier to control doing it this way.  Acetate to watercolor paper instead of laying the watercolor paper flat on the inky craft mat. I used Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers and Forest Moss regular Distress Ink pads.

I stamped the succulent bouquet with Ranger Archival ink onto the dried inked watercolor paper.  I used a stamp platform so I could ink it a few times.

Then I die cut it out with the coordinating die.

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold powder on TE Oreo cardstock and cut around it with a scissors.

There is another new sentiment and die set from Memory Box that does have coordinating dies. You can see it HERE.

I glued the negative piece to a piece of TE Oreo cardstock, then using mounting tape I fit the die cut back in the space.

I mounted to another piece of TE Poblano Pepper cardstock….I know it’s dark here, hard to tell but it’s there! hehe

To add a little glam, I added some Memory Box Fairy Jewels!

I really like how it turned out. That’s what keeps us making, right?!  When we like something!  I’m working on birthday cards for boys… Corrin turned 12 on the 7th,  Cedryk turned 9 on the 18th and Henry is 15 TODAY!!!  How in the world!  These kids just keep getting older!   I love ’em!  For a mom of girls to have 11 grandsons, it’s pretty amazing! lol  6 granddaughters too!

I better get back to those cards!  ttul and shopping links below!  Cindy/Starlitstudio is on vacation but will be back shipping Monday. SSS $5 savings code is YUM521 through 8/15.

Hi everyone!  This new cling stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s newest release is almost 6×6 size.  I stamped it up, heat embossed it in gold, painted it with Karin watercolor markers and cut it in half!  eek!  That was hard to do! lol   It’s perfect for two mini slimline cards though!

The sentiment die is from Memory Box.  On the top card I used a vellum layer and on the second I used a mirror gold layer.

Here you can see the gold the way it looks in real life!

Here the sentiment is die cut in the mirror gold cardstock… so pretty!

The top card is the right side of the stamp, second card is the left side!   I kept with a simple method of watercoloring on Strathmore Best watercolor, the brown pad.  I put the darkest color ink marker down on dry paper, then moved it out with a lighter color ink marker, then a wet paintbrush.  I made myself just keep going, not going back and back! lol

I love this mini slim line size but I’m not stuck here! lol

Thank you for stopping by…check out the new release from Simon Says stamp and use the code YUM521 through 8/15.

Memory Box and poppystamps ‘anything is popsicle’ Shaker Card!

Do you agree? Such a cute sentiment!  A Summer shaker card with poppystamps Whittle Popsicle die, Memory Box Nested Globes, Memory Box Grain Planks (cut to be narrower),  NEW Banner Sentiment Trio die and NEW poppystamps  Life is Sweet Clear Stamp set!

Here’s a video to show how it works…it’s not deep so they don’t move around a lot. It looks a lot better when you click watch on You Tube.  lol

I made this mini slim size… 3 ½ in x 6 in.  It works so well for some things!

I die cut everything from Neenah 110# Solar White Smooth Classic Crest cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

I added dots to the inside background piece with the same Copics also.

I only used one layer of mounting tape around the perimeter of the globe.  I used the thin strips you can buy, but cutting your own would work too!  I’ll link below.

Super cute little popsicles…the die comes with two on it, one with the cute face and stitch lines and the other solid.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside!  ugh.  But there’s a new poppystamps sentiment set called Marzipan Greetings that’s so cute and the sentiment  ‘it’s the little things’ is perfect for the inside! I like some of the other ones for this too!

I don’t know who I’m going to send this to yet!  Here we are in the middle of Summer already though!  Wow, this year is going by fast!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  I’m going to go make some more and see what I can come up with!  Have you checked out the new Memory Box/poppystamps release?  hehe  I’ll link below.

Two Memory Box 4th of July Cards…

Hi everyone!!! How do you celebrate the birthday of America? We meet at our middle daughter’s and watch the fireworks. Always good for a few mosquito bites.  grrrr

This CAS card is the 2nd card I came up with, scroll down for the 1st.  I had the idea to use this Vertical Line Collage in a flag way.  I didn’t realize that I wanted it CAS though until after I was almost done with the one below! lol  So there’s a card for both styles today!  CAS and CAS plus! lol

God Bless America!

 

The stars and stripes for this birthday wish!  I planned on using a big star but when I took my dies out of my star category, I saw this one and some others and got sidetracked from my plan! lol

Which one do you like better?  I almost think this one could be two cards… the stripes with USA on it and the star border with the sentiment! lol

I had fun anyway… I kept thinking I needed to add some of those star brads I have in the stash!  I had to tell myself, no that would be another card! lol

I like this last picture the best…funny how tipping just a bit shows the dimension.  I wish I’d had them done sooner so I could mail them to someone!  Such a last minute looloo!
