poppystamps Pondering Layered Deer in the Iced Pine Trees Mini Slimline Card…

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a Winter Wonderland using NEW poppy dies and the NEW Memory Box Jolly 6×6 pattern paper pad.  The plaids in this pad are gorgeous!

I die cut and laid everything out before I cut the plaid paper.  I decided to go with the Mini Slim size, completed it is 3 ½ x 6 inches.

I used the NEW poppy Proper Merry Christmas die cut in TE Cherry Pop Red cardstock and Hammermill White cardstock.

The NEW poppy Pondering Layered Deer is die cut in TE Toffee cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

The scarf is colored with Copic E07 and the antlers with Copic E47.

The NEW Iced Pine Trees are cut in TE Toffee Cardstock also and Hammermill White for the snow. I colored the trees with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I used an older Memory Box die for the snowy hills,  Stitched Curves.

I mounted the sentiment and the deer with the thin mounting tape I like so well.  The hills and trees are taped and glued directly to the plaid and then the cardbase.

I’m linking to some Christmas Challenge blogs…

Holler if I forgot some info!  I’m sure I often do!  I have some more photos to work on and I need to pick a winner of the Halloween dies!  I didn’t forget, I have it ready to choose, I just need to put the phone holder on the table and tape myself choosing the winner! hehe

I will try to be back tomorrow with another card and the winner!

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate it!

poppystamps Cat Collage Card, Whittle Creatures Card and Jack O Lantern Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s Black, Orange and Purple season!  But isn’t this black NEW Cat Collage amazing die cut in Memory Box black glossy cardstock!  I love the thickness of it….I use a piece of copy paper folded in half for a shim when I die cut it.

Memory Box NEW Happy Halloween Posh Script die cut directly in the glossy card front panel then an orange die cut inlaid into it.  Be sure to keep the centers of the letters!

An easy alternative to gluing!  I put scor-tape on the back side, flip it over and inlay the die and letter centers. I use scor-tape a lot!

I had a scrap of brayered cardstock that wasn’t good enough to make the keep pile.  It worked perfectly for die cutting the background for the cat and the windows of the NEW poppystamps Twisted Houses die!

A2 size card.

Next up is a cute, cute card using the NEW poppystamps Whittle Creatures die set.

Aren’t they cute?  oh, I already said that! lol  They’ve got personality!

I die cut in white and copic colored.  So easy because the only little pieces are the faces. I put a little piece of scor-tape on the backs, then insert the little pieces with a pick up tool. Works great!

I decided to go postal!  Memory Box Postage Square Layers for the white layer, Stitched Square Layers for the bluish green layer.  I had to cut the black layer with a paper trimmer.

The broom is from the NEW Whittle Witch die.

Then I needed words!  I landed on this poppystamps Marzipan Greetings clear set.  A bunch of fun sentiments in this set.  Love it!

Mini Slimline size card.

My next card is CAS or QAE!

Mini Slimline size card again using the NEW poppystamps Jack O Lantern Frame die.

I die cut it in TE candycorn cardstock.  Colored with copics, the branches brown and the leaves green, coloring right over the orange cardstock.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Boo Pie Script die in Memory Box black glossy cardstock.  So fun!  A smiling Jack O Lantern just trying to scare you! ha!

I have TWO more Halloween cards to show you tomorrow!  Then….guess what?!  More NEW coming!  Be watching!

Thank you for clicking over and making it through my long post! I kinda got carried away with a three day cardmaking marathon this week. eek! I didn’t mean to scare you! lol

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Party!

Hi everyone!  I have some cards to post using the NEW for STAMPtember sentiment set called ‘Extra Talkative’.  So many sentiments in the set I ended up with five cards!  This is a big set with dies to match but I didn’t get the dies to use.  You’ll see how beautifully they ink up and stamp!

Here’s my first card…

I made three Mini Slimline cards and two A2 size cards…

What great words of encouragement!  Everyone can use that now and then!  I’m sending this one to myself! lol

Besides the Extra Talkative set I used two new sets from Memory Box.  Leafy Branch Oval and Fanciful Fall Leaves.

 

Next up…

How cute is this ‘Hi.’! So cute!  I cut some strips with a Waffleflower die, stamped four sentiments from the set on each strip with matching ink. ATG to the card…thin mounting tape to mount the HI circle.

Next…

Another CAS card.  Here I used a Gina K Designs die set, Botanical Duo.  I cut it in white and inked it with regular Distress Inks and ink blending brushes.  Scrap paper to protect each part from the other color.

I stamped the sentiment in the MISTI…taped on another one of those strips, I cut too many, tied on the thin Mayarts twine and it was done!

Now for the two A2 size cards…

Brayering Kaleidacolor ink pad colors onto Hammermill Color Copy 100# cardstock.  I love how this cardstock keeps the color vibrant!

The Botanical Duo die in Glossy Black cardstock and two sentiments from the set again.

Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die for the brayered white panel.

Next…

More encouragement from this card! These sentiments stamped so beautifully.  I used Ranger Archival Black ink.  It’s my favorite for stamping black sentiments.  I used the MISTI also.

I added a few black enamel dots on the berries… just enough to make it a little ‘extra’!

Just reading these cards is helping put the smile back on my face today!  Hope it’s an encouragement to you also!

Here’s a special code from SSS for an ‘extra’ to put a smile on your face today too! I’ll list the clickable links to the other products I used at the bottom of this post… Have fun shopping and if you click to another blog but want to shop through my links, just come back and click through one of my links again and it will track to me.  You know I appreciate it and wish I knew who to send thank yous too!

Have a wonderful extended weekend!  We always try to get something done around the house cuz…it’s Labor Day. ha! lol

Thank you so much for visiting my blog…talk to you again soon!

Winter Garden Release Letterbox Card…

Special Delivery!  All the fun things of the season right there!  Snail mail, snowflakes, jingle bells and snow!

I went with a Mini Slimline Card for this one.  I used Spellbinders Precision Layering Mini Slimline A and B sets to cut my layers.  I really like these dies because they are heavier and hold the rectangle shape better than the thin silver ones do. I don’t like it when I die cut layers and they’re wonky!

I tore a piece of white cardstock for the mailbox to stand in (snowdrift) and die cut it with the same layer die as the blue background size.  I used Prize Ribbon Regular Distress Ink to ink up the background this time.  I spattered on some water droplets.  I like to spray water into the palm of my left hand, then I rub both my hands together so they’re both wet, then I clap over the inked background to spatter the water drops. I let it sit a minute, then lay a paper towel over it to get the extra water.

Then I spattered on some diluted white acrylic paint.

I die cut the mailbox post from woodgrain cardstock and the mailbox from silver mirror cardstock.

I die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, then glued the gold on top of the white.

The jingles bells and ‘garland’ are from the NEW More Holiday Decor die set.  I love how cute the little bow is on the super cute jingle bells I die cut in silver mirror cardstock also.

I love that there’s just enough dimension to add perspective.  It’ll still mail in an envelope for one stamp.

I used the thin mounting tape, I’ll link below, behind the mailbox post and box on this card and yesterdays.

Finished size is 3 ½ in. x 6 ½ in.   So happy to have a start on Christmas cards!  I can’t believe we’re half way through July! I need to get more done!

I’ll be back soon….we have to keep making!

Memory Box NEW Lavender Bouquet and Posh Thank You Hot Foil…

Hi everyone! Have you had time to look at the NEW Memory Box release and see the NEW Hot Foil Plate and Cutting Die sets?  Today I used the NEW Posh Thank You set and I love it on the Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock!

I started with a mini slimline panel.  Then I was thinking backgrounds…I love Memory Box Collage dies and I grabbed the Jumbled Line Collage and found all the positive pieces from cutting a few times in the envelope!  YAY! Make my own tile/brick looking wall to show off the lavender!

I ran a couple stripes of ATG adhesive down the panel and just started placing the strips…they’re very random lengths.  I didn’t go by anything, just picked up and stuck them on.

I die cut the lavender in lilac and green cardstocks, trimmed off the stems from the lilac ones and glued the top to the green.

I glued the stems directly over the strips, then glued the thank you directly over the stems.  No mounting tape was used on this one!

The panel is glued directly on the mini slimline cardbase too!

Easy to make, easy to mail!  yay!

Thank you for stopping by!  Curious what your favorite new dies are from this release?!

Birch Press Design Flower Cards…

A couple cards to share with you this week…unusual colors for me! Not sure but posting them anyway!  lol

Light pink and bright green!  Do they work?

I really like this plaid paper from the Memory Box Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.

The flowers on this card are from the NEW Birch Press Design Eucalyptus Stem and Berries Contour Layers die set and the Tiny Tuft Flowers and LEaves Contour Layers die set.

Sentiment is Memory Box Just a Note Posh Script die cut in the NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and white cardstock.

Here I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink cardstock and Bazzill Card Shoppe Easter Grass cardstock.

The flower and leaf in the corner are the NEW Birch Press Design Pimpernel Contour Layers die set.

I decided to use the NEW Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Frame die with it because the leaves are similar and I love this die anyway!  It’s so pretty!

The sentiment is from poppystamps Colorful Life stamp set and stamped with Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink ink in the MISTI. It’s very subtle but I kinda like that for a change.

The berries are a bit bluer in real life…pretty sure it’s Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock and the flowers are Taylored Expressions Candy Corn cardstock.

Just a Note is a Mini Slimline card and the Wishing You strength card is an A2 size card. Both will mail for one forever postage stamp in the USA.

Thank you for coming to visit today!  More new stuff coming and I have some cute to share soon too!

Have a good cardmaking week or organizing week… I’ve been doing that too!  I went on a shopping spree!  oops!  If you ever get the chance to go to Cedar Rapids, IA, be sure to go to Scrapmania and tell Stacy, the owner I sent you!  I promise you, you will NOT be sorry you took the time to go there!

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!

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!!!

Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release Cup of Love Card…

Hi everyone!  I have another mini slimline card to share with you today!  This size is so much fun!

I just received my order with a few of the new products from this release… Cup of Love stamp set and die set and this new slimline size Organic Dots stencil.

I’m not a coffee drinker but lots of family and friends that are!  This should get used!

I simply inked through the stencil with Gathered Twigs Distress ink using the Make-Art Stay-tion that comes with four strong magnets to hold the stencil in place…very helpful!

Then I spattered with black watercolor, dried it and then white watercolor.

To cut the panels I used the new Waffleflower Mini Slim Line die set!  I am going to get the use out of this set… I’ll link it below too.

I stamped, die cut, colored and assembled.  The card ends up 3 ½ x 6 inches.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa stamp pad for the coffee.

I stamped the sentiment with Ranger Archival Coffee ink pad.

I’ll link you up to this new release and the $5 off your next order code is good until the 15th!

Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box Floral Collage and Birch Press Design Crystal Lingo Cards…

Hello everyone!  Here’s to flowers blooming everywhere!

I combined some dies for this card…nothing stamped on this one!  I LOVE this Jumbled Line Collage die…new from Memory Box.

The flowers are from the release before this last one.  I used the Layered Daisies, Layered Fresh Flowers and Thank You Posh Script dies.

Five of the new Memory Box Fairy Jewels and two of the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads.  I love that there are three shades for each of the 4 colors in the pads.  I used Berry Red and Lush Green.

The Jumbled Line Collage lends itself to any card size.  I made this one in the Mini Slim Size, 3 ½ by 6 inches.

Oh the leaves and berry branches are from the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set.

My next card is Bright too! lol

Here’s a simple slim line card… I ink blended five colors of Distress Oxide onto a piece of cardstock using Taylored Expressions Ink blender brushes.  I let it dry overnight and heat embossed with white powder the slim line size stamp from Birch Press Design, Crystal Lingo.

The Happy and Birthday To You stamps are both from the same set and there are dies to cut out the big words.

I colored HAPPY with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used the Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layers dies to cut the stamped panel and the black layer.

It kinda reminds me of a box of crayons! lol

Some beautiful days this week here in Iowa.  We live in a big old house with two Central air units… the one for the 2nd and 3rd floor pooped out on us Tuesday. ugh ugh ugh.  I like being cool!  So, here’s hoping we can get a new unit in fast!  It could be challenging, especially sleeping.

I’ll get off and figure out what I need to do next without getting hot! lol

Some of the supplies I used to make these cards… and while I have you here… look at the June Clearance SALE at Scrapbook.com!  I found some things I needed for birthdays!  yay!  Tons of good stuff!

Hi everyone!  “water you up to?”  A very wet week and now for some sunshine and a water card! YAY!

I had to show you the inside first… I love how it turned out! lol

The front…

It’s like a book style, shadow box, interactive, slim line size, dimensional card!  3 ½ x 6 inches but it’s really a box that you’ll see in my little short video below.  I wish I knew how to keep the resolution so the quality was still here when I upload.  There must be some trick! I’m not ambitious enough to take the time to learn.  I’d rather make cards! You can smash it to mail it… It’ll probably need the 2 oz postage stamp.

I used a bunch of the new dies from Memory Box,  Distress Oxide Ink pads for all the coloring and Taylored Expressions ink blender brushes.  So fun… I like coloring dies this way.  I hope you can see that I added some white pigment ink/Sugar Cube from Taylored Expressions,  down the centers of the front background piece and the inside background piece… like there’s some light glowing in.

I spattered with water.  After it dried I spattered with some white watercolor paint.

I forgot to add some of the new Memory Box Fairy Drop Clear Domed adhesive embellishments!  They would’ve been a really cool!  Check them out HERE!

I got carried away with pictures… I cut out two though! lol

To make this, I added 1 ½  inch to my card base measurement, then scored so I would have  ½ inch for the spine and the ½ inch piece to glue my top panel to and a ½ inch for the side.  You can kinda see the white in the picture above…bottom right corner.  I did have to trim out some of it so the white didn’t show behind the bubbles and curves.  If you made this A2 size, you probably wouldn’t need to do that.

The two inside pieces I made/cut a scant 3 ½ in plus an ⅛ in for both sides so be sure to add a ¼ in to whatever size you make your card.

The top panel is only scored on the left side to glue to the spine.  The right side glues to the top ½ inch of the cardbase.

Sorry, I’m one of those wing it card makers that can figure out stuff as I go.  Hope you can figure it out too!

Guesting at AAA Cards Challenge…

Hi everyone! It’s my privilege to play along with the AAACards Challenge blog today!  We would love to have you join us! Here’s what you need to know…

I do enjoy making CAS cards and I’m always inspired by challenges!

I just woke up the other morning thinking about my speech bubble stamps and dies, so I got them out and started.  This was first out of my brain and I liked it and even though I thought I’d try another I didn’t.  I always think I’ll do more than I do! ha

Here’s a picture of the card I made and entered into one of the AAA challenges and won with my card for this new challenge.  Click ‘home’ and scroll down a few posts and you’ll find the thank you card.

I’m thinking this CONGRATS card is especially fitting for this time of year and could be switched up easily for many occasions.  Blue for a baby boy sentiment, pink for a baby girl, it doesn’t have to be just graduations! But you could use the school color!

I really like it and I hope you’ll take up the challenge!  Once you get started making CAS cards it’s so fun! 😀

I took a close up picture of this cute washi tape that I’m gonna use to close the envelope… perfect! ❤

This is the mini slimline size card…3 ½  x 6 inches.

Thanks for stopping by today and I apologize for accidentally hitting the publish button earlier which ended up in you receiving an email too early!  ugh!  I had made a change and normally it would say ‘update’ but because I’d already saved this post as a ‘draft’ it says publish instead of update!  OH GOOD GRIEF! (Charlie Brown)   Yes, blogging is a challenge too! lol

Have a good rest of the week and try making a CAS card and linking it up!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows and MFT Spring Gnomes Card…

Truth – You’re a friend like gnome other!  Cardmakers just click!

I’m using the NEW Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows die today from the latest release, ‘All The Feels’….very fun to create three little scenes with the NEW My Favorite Things Spring Gnomes Stamp and die sets too!

I die cut the Windows die and backed it with Memory Box NEW Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  Such gorgeous papers!

The gnome, flowers and grass are die cut in Copic coloring cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Accented with a white Sakura gel pen.

I stamped the sentiments with the Misti stamping tool. On the inside I stamped the ‘I carrot about you so much’ sentiment and added a carrot. ❤

Hope it makes you smile and think Spring!

Memory Box Snow Much Fun Birthday Card…

Happy snow day if you live in snow territory like we do! Some years we don’t get much but this year we’re getting enough to keep it pretty and bright!

This is one of the birthday cards I’ve been working on…our boys love playing in the snow!

The bunnies, sentiment and snowballs are from the Memory Box Snow Much Fun stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.


The sled and presents are from the Memory Box Be Jolly stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.

I love that these sets can be used for Christmas and Winter… the candy cane could easy be switched out with the heart for Valentines Day! And there’s a die for all in the set!

I used the Memory Box Fresh Pine Curved Border die HERE for the snowy tree hill in the background.

Salty Ocean and a little bit of Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks for the background…then a spattering of white acrylic paint.

This card is the fabulous mini slim size that I am really loving!  3 ½ inches x 6 inches.  A few posts back I showed one this size but vertical using the new Memory Box Verdant Leaf Collage die, HERE.

So fun…Be watching!  More new stuff coming!  Thanks for stopping by!
