Birch Press Design Banner Heart Layer Die Set Card…

Hi again!  Hearts a plenty!  Next it’ll be bunches of flowers! lol

Once you start cutting these layers, you wonder what it’d look like this way or that and end up with slimline cards!  Birch Press Design NEW Banner Heart Layer set….3 dies in the set.  I didn’t even try just using one or by twos!   How about little stars up in the right hump! Patriotic is good too! Hearts for all occasions really!

I like the pink and more card but you know…I’m partial to red!  ❤

Nothing out of the ordinary here…die cut and glue together.

I did get some stamping on this one though.  Using the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines stamp set… I curved the stamps on a block… they stamped great!  I stuck the cutouts that I threw away in the spot to test though.  I’m a tester stamper! lol  I suppose every once in a while I gamble but for the most part I’ve learned my lessons well! lol

one of the red close up…

For the this one, I used the Memory Box Slim Confetti Plate for the front panel/background… I thought it was playful and fun with the banner look.  Reminds me of that candy that came in dots on paper and you picked it off to eat it.  gag.  Can’t believe the stuff I ate as a kid!  Much better on a card!

The sentiment here is from the NEW Birch Press Design Sugar Script Sentiments 1 Hot Foil Plate and die set.  I foiled it in silver on Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock.

I placed the hearts on wonky and straight. I think they’ll mail fine.  I can’t believe postage is going up again. ugh

Happy Thursday to you and I’m on to the next birthday card.  Our youngest grandson turns 8 tomorrow!  Doesn’t seem possible! We are blessed!

ttul!

Memory Box Heart Ring Stack Card…

Hi everyone!  I always have to make some CAS (clean and simple) Valentine cards.  All my favorite things in an easy card!

I love traditional stamping and paper bits!  Using up some scraps…and the white border almost like white embossing on kraft!

I had good luck with photos today!  Another dreary day.  My Nikon likes dreary I guess…more than I do for sure! ugh

I always love adding this lightweight MayArts jute too…

The cardstock I’m using is from Hobby Lobby…their extra heavyweight kraft.  I love it but this ream must be cut wrong because it curves.  I need to put it under a stack of books!  I still love it though! ❤

What are your favorite colors for Valentines?  It’s kinda fun to mix it up a little but it seems I don’t stray far from kraft, white, black and of course RED!

That’s it for my pictures! lol  Holler if you have any questions.  oh, I did mount it with my favorite thin mounting tape.  I use scor-tape on the back to hold the pieces in place first.

Linking to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes

The Card Concept – Winter Cocoa

The Paper Funday Challenge – anything goes

Yay!  I have two more Valentine cards to post this week.  I’ll get ’em up tomorrow!

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope this sweet, simple card makes you smile!  oh, It’s A2 size!

Memory Box Plaid Winter Scene Birthday Card…

Hello to all, snow or no snow! The birthdays keep coming! 

I started with Memory Box Circle dies, cutting a smaller circle in black cardstock and using the panel, not the cut out circle.  Then I cut out a larger circle in a kraft A2 size panel with an eighth inch larger Memory Box die.  I’ll link the ones I used below.

I die cut the snow puffs with poppystamps Whittle Cloud Border die and white cardstock.

I used a square of Memory Box Woodsy Plaid paper to fit behind the circle panels.  I adhered everything together flat for mailing, except the sled.

Memory Box Little Trees dies cut from black cardstock and glued on flat.

Memory Box Feathery Snowflake Discs from white cardstock and glued on just in the centers.  (I just used the flakes)

For the sled I used Memory Box Vintage Sled #94495 from 2020.  Die cut in kraft and black cardstocks, then glued together and mounted to the card with the very thin mounting tape I’m always raving that I love!

The sentiment on the front is from Your Next Stamp set called Silly Monsters Chill Out.  At first I was going to use the images from the set and color but then I changed my mind and went with the sled.   

On the inside is a happy birthday sentiment.

It turned out CAS but I was happy with it!  I hope it inspires you to create something Winter-ish!

MFT Cash Card Kit Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Super fun birthday cards today.

I couldn’t resist using the cash card kit again.  This is the third one and I have a short video to share of it and I’ll post a picture of the first two I made with the kit also.

Here’s the back… I signed it back here and stamped the date.

Then I have this bag die that fits a card so I die cut it in heavy printer paper and decorated it with Doodlebug Washi Tape…it was hand delivered.  It fits all the way down in, I just left it up for the picture. 

Here’s a video of it…tap/click to enlarge to get the full resolution/sharpness!  ❤  It’s better quality on Instagram if you want to click over… It should let you watch without making an account.  

HERE

ok – I see what the deal is with the video… you have to click the sliders and choose high quality after you click the outside bracket symbol to the far bottom right to enlarge it. ugh.  I wish it would just load it at a decent size and quality to watch without clicking!  But that’s tech for you, always thinking they’re making it better and we’re just clicking, clicking!  waaahhh! rme.  Then you have to hit the play arrow in the bottom left corner and if you want to replay it, hit the curved arrow in the same corner!  That’s my computer anyway. I’ll check it on the phone.

Here’s a picture of the first two I made for the two of our grandsons with birthdays in December.  I didn’t even take a picture of the back I guess.  December turns into a blur around here!

The kids are loving these cards!  I’ll link to what I used below!

Thanks for stopping by and holler if you have any questions!

Thank you for shopping through my links!  I truly do appreciate it!

I used an old Memory Box die from 2016, Snowflake Ring #99494.  It’s 3.3 x 3.3 inches.  This die, HERE, would work, you could cover the flowers with snowflakes!  It’s the same size.  HERE’S the Circle Category if you’d want to check out the possibilities!  or this new one HERE might work!

Washi Tape HERE

Memory Box Blissful Heart and Cuppa Love Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have two cards to share with you today…Memory Box hearts, hearts and more hearts!

I love hearts and you probably love coffee!  I’m a black tea girl… ugh… so I don’t get those swirly heart things in my cup! lol

The NEW Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate is a stunner!  So gorgeous!

I used silver hot foil with it on the lavender cardstock from the Memory Box Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  6×6 cardstock… wow, it takes the foil so nice! So many beautiful colors of mirror card in this pad!

After foiling, I die cut the heart with the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Fits perfect!

I used the Memory Box 3D embossing folder Heart Bouquet for the card panel layer…another gorgeous design by Dave from 2019 but still available… I’ll link below.

The sentiment is NEW from Birch Press Design…You Are Loved Noted Script hot foil plate and die set.  I used Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and silver hot foil.  This picture it looks more champagne – ish color but it’s silver!

So pretty!  Clean and Simple but elegant!

Back to the NEW Memory Box Cuppa Love card… this die is so cute!  I love the heart steam, don’t you?!

I used the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die on this card also.  I cut the largest heart in my cardbase, then I had to back the cardbase on the inside but that’s alright… it turned out nice with white on the inside.  I love the double stitch lines.

Another NEW heart die, Pinpoint Burst Heart from Memory Box for the background insert… I love how they all fit with each other! 

Cuppa is cut in white cardstock, the liquid in kraft and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending took and the heart and saucer in red cardstock.  Super simple die inlaying… love simple puzzles! lol

I used this cute sentiment, ‘It’s the little things’,  from the poppystamps Marzipan Greetings stamp set.  On the inside… ‘this is a paper hug’. 

I love that paper hug sentiment!  Stamped with Archival ink pad Potting Soil.

So fun!  I made these on Monday, took pictures yesterday and made two loaves of bread! It turned out so good!  I’m happy! lol  No stamps for happy bread hugs though! ha!  It must be a two thing kind of week! lol

Memory Box Luxe Peony For You Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s been a week so far…some anxiety here…our internet provider is discontinuing their email service which I’ve had forever!  So I’ve had to spend hours changing log ins in all the places I used that email address over the years.  Fingers crossed everything still works after January 6th which is the day they’re cutting it off!  eek!

Thankfully I’ve gotten one card made in there to keep my sanity! haha

A brand NEW Peony die from Memory Box.. very fun and easy to use… I die cut in white and inked with two Altenew ink cubes and mini ink blending tools.   The leaves/stems come with it too and I inked them the same way.  I’ll link the colors below.

For You Posh Script is a NEW Memory Box die also.  I die cut it three times and glued them together.  I didn’t use the mat behind it this time, I just used the top outline part.

I wanted to bring in a heart so I used the largest heart from the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die set.

I didn’t add a lot of thickness… just the thin mounting tape I love so well behind the heart. I use this pair of scissors, HERE, to cut it because it is sticky. 

I inked around the edge of the A2 size top panel with Simon Says Stamp Deep Purple and an ink blending brush.

A Clean and Simple card by design with simple coloring too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope your week doesn’t have major tech changes too! Insert the crazy face!
