poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel Whittle Pig CUTE Card…

Hi everyone! This little piggy cleaned up to bring you this special message today! lol  The new poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel set is SUCH a FUN die set! This is an A2 size.

I added in Memory Box new woodgrain cardstock, inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

poppystamps Whittle chickens die cut in white and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and Whittle Cloud Border dies cut with Memory Box new cardstock.

poppystamps Whittle Sunshine die die cut in Memory Box new cardstock.

poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set, Word Balloons die and Whittle Pig…I layered up three of the pig and then a couple more layers of just his snout!  I just love it!  I die cut him in white, inked him with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink and added in some shading with a Copic Sketch Marker R14.  A little white gel pen for accenting.

I stamped ‘Missing you Pig Time’ on white Neenah cardstock and die cut it with the narrowest die in the Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set.  I am using that die over and over!  Then I matted it with the next size up die and MB woodgrain cardstock again.   Yes, I have to cut one end to get the length but I just insert the cut back into the die, tape it and barely run over the end.  I use one of the Sizzix Sidekick cutting plates in my Big shot so I can just cut the very end!  Slick!  I should make a video.  ❤

This is one of those cards that just makes me happy!  I hope it makes you smile and inspires you to make something today!

Oh, there are several other animals that go with the barn and sentiments too!  A Goat even!  So fun!

See you again soon!

P.S.  The new AC is in and running wonderfully!  So thankful!  I have to be cool! lol

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!

Memory Box Ocean Collage Interactive Mini Slimline Shadowbox Card…

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!

poppystamps Whittle Collection Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have five little cards to show you today!  I had some fun this week making 4 Bar size cards… they’re 3 ⅜ in. x 4 ⅞ in.!  I’m a little worried the size will show correctly in the pictures so I wanted you to know right up front!  I’m afraid they’ll look bigger in the pictures than they actually are in real life!

I used all new dies and stamps from the latest release.

This one I had fun with the Whittle Fish Trio die, Word Balloons die and Whittle Sealife Sentiments.  I embellished it just a touch with the sea weed (not sure what they are) from the new Memory Box Deepwater Collage die.

I also used the new Memory Box cardstock pads.  I will link them below.

My husband and grandsons like to fish so I’m sure this will be a hit!

Isn’t this Dolphin cute?

I used Whittle Dolphin, Whittle Sunshine, Whittle Wave Background and sentiment from Whittle Sealife Sentiments.

I like using dies to cut out the sentiment strip.  For this one I used the smallest, narrow die from the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set.  I just run it back through to die cut the very end to get the right length.

I used Oxide inks on the doplhin and sunshine.  The new Memory Box cardstock pad for the background.

I made this card first and it got me going on this size!

Whittle Sealife Sentiment stamps again…so fun!  I love this sentiment!  My sea comes from a bottle or fruit though! lol

I used the Whittle Seahorse and Whittle Seascape Background dies for this card.

I see I saved this picture a different size…oops… oh well, I think you can still see how cute it is!

I inked the background with Speckled Egg distress oxide ink and the seahorse with my brown oxide blending brush.  I imagine it had vintage photo on it.  I have a set of Taylored Expressions blending brushes I use for the Distress Oxide inks.  I really, really like how they work for this kind of thing.

The next two cards don’t really coordinate with the first three. I didn’t have time to make more cards so there’d be sets yet, so be watching for more, I have some ideas!

Here I used Playful Happy Birthday and Whittle Snails! The sentiment is is ‘snail mail for you’ but I figured, why not use a snail instead of the word! hehe  It’s from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments.  Super, super fun sentiments in this set!

The cardstock I used is from the new Memory Box Cardstock pads again…love these pads!  Oh and NEW gems! Links below.

I’m welcoming the ladies to the blog today!  I like their advice! lol

Cute little Whittle Chickens, Whittle Wood Picture Frames, Word Balloons dies and more sentiments from the Whittle Wild Animals stamp set.

Memory Box has new woodgrain cardstock in light brown, cream and white!  I’ll link below.  I inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and spattered with a little water.

I hope I didn’t miss telling you anything but if I did, feel free to ask me!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Memory Box…a Spring Hello Card…

Hello! I was just looking out the window at the wonder of everything blooming so beautifully!  YAY for Spring!

A clean and simple card to share with you today…not so much white but simple layers and elements.

I covered a piece of white cardstock with Cornelia Variegated Wide Washi Tape from Memory Box and die cut it with a Memory Box Stitched Circle die but this Wrapped Circle die from Memory Box would be great too!

I used the Memory Box Gloriosa Butterly Duo Outlines and Background smaller butterfly of the set.  Die cut in Memory Box Glitter Cardstock.

The Memory Box Antique Leaf Label die cut in white and partially inked so I could stamp the hello from the Memory Box Sunflower Wreath stamp set on the label part.

The cardbase panel and the panel under the circle are both die cut with Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle dies out of Taylored Expressions cardstock.

Layer everything up for this A2 card. I only used mounting tape for the label.

Here’s another card I made with this Antique Leaf Label…

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope all your flowers are budding or blooming! ❤

poppystamps Spring is a Time with Leafy Vines Slim Plate and Whittle Birds Card…

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying some nice days where you are!  The trees are budding and the grass is green!

I started today by cutting this new Leafy Vines Slim Plate in black…scrapped that.  lol  I die cut it in TE Toffee and colored the leaves quick with a Copic Sketch YG17 marker.  Then I inked the rest with the mini blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink pad. My go to brown for edging with ink.

Then I die cut a white cardstock panel with one of the New Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layer dies.  Using the light blue TE blending brush and Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass ink I brushed in the sky on this white panel.  I really like the look of some white space.

I die cut the poppystamps Whittle Birds from white cardstock and inked them with the red TE blending brush.  I didn’t add more ink, it already had oxide ink on it.

Then back to Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini blending tool for the rest of the bird.  I did the underside with a little brown too.

A black ink pen for the dot in the eyes.

The sentiment I used is from the poppystamps Springtime Fun clear stamp set.  It’s a beautiful sentiment but I cut it up for this card!  It fits back together though. Don’t panic!  ❤  You can almost hear the birds singing!

I heat embossed with VersaMark Ink and Lawn Fawn White Embossing powder on TE Oreo/black cardstock.

I had no idea what I was going to come out with when I started this card!   I guess that’s pretty normal for me. lol  I’m really happy with it!  I love it when I get a surprise like that! ❤

I hope you’ve had some time to be creative with paper and ink or out in the dirt! hehe

Thank you for stopping by! Keep me in your prayers… tomorrow was Breanna’s birthday.  My mom heart is weepy.  sigh.   Almost 6 months since she died.   I appreciate it! ❤

poppystamps Happy Easter and Memory Box Blossom 3D Embossing Folder Cards…


Made you smile!  I know, I know!  Thank you Jan for reminding me to add the puffy tail!  Keep scrolling for the pretty floral embossing folder card.

Grab a grass die cut it in green….add washi tape to white cardstock and die cut eggs…stamp some words…heat emboss some other words…layer it all up and you’ve got a cute card!  I’ll link what I used below.

I love using washi tape… it just adds a little bit of homespun or something!  The cute sentiments add the whimsy!

Hippity hoppity to the next card…

Here I used the NEW 3D embossing folder. I lightly spritzed the panel of Memory Box Watercolor paper with water on both sides before I ran it through my Big Shot.  Using blending brushes I blended ink on the panel with Distress Oxide inks.  I used one of the finger daubers to do the green.  I used my water droplet, clap on technique to get the white spots.  Spray water into your hand, then rub them together and clap over the panel.  I got a little green on the edges of the flowers so I went around the flower edges with a white gel pen. Oh and a few white gel pen dots on the flower centers.

The detail on this type folder is amazing!  My pictures do not do it justice!

I die cut the NEW Glade Butterfly and NEW Just a Note Posh Script dies from white cardstock and vellum.

I layered the panel onto black cardstock and then to a light yellow A2 size cardbase.

I’m really happy with how it turned out… it almost went in the trash! lol

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a fun week creating!  I might be outside some!  After a dreary week last week, it looks like we’re in for some sunshine!  YAY!

poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set and Spring Bunnies Card…

Hi everyone!  It almost feels like Spring in Iowa today!  43˚!  Next up… happy Easter!

I started out with the NEW poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set with every intention of making an easel card! lol   I glued the back on wrong so all of a sudden I had an A2 basket shape card so I went with it! lol

I used all NEW Memory Box cardstock except for the white card base.  I’ll link up the pads I used below.  I love the colors!

I did add a little Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink with the mini ink blending tool, to the background piece. The basket is inked through the die with Distress ink Gathered Twigs.  I used some other inks to edge the die cut pieces.

It’s so great to get so many fun dies in a set.  I love the grass, foliage and berries in the set.  I used two of the green cardstocks.  The bow comes in the set too!

I used NEW poppystamps Spring Bunnies and Splendid Happy Easter dies also.

On the inside a sentiment from the NEW Memory Box stamp set All the Happiness.

I added white dots and colored the berries white with a white glaze pen.  I love using them.  I do two or three layers.

Holler if you have any questions!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!

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!

NEW Memory Box Dies…Sweet Bay Collage and Verdant Leaf Collage…

Hi everyone! Two clean and simple cards to share today and I like them!  YAY!  I made a regular A2 size card with the NEW Sweet Bay Collage die, using it on a fold on the inside, as a pop up!

So pretty with this popular pattern paper from Hobby Lobby!  For the two bluegreen cuts, I die cut, then trimmed at the top and the bottom of the stem, then added/adhered the two leaves that completely cut out.  So pretty with the white contrast!

But then you have to decorate the front! haha  I just used the Rectangle Basics die set and die cut rectangles to fit the sentiment from poppystamps Friendship and Kindness clear stamp set.  I heat embossed in black detail powder on the bluegreen cardstock from TE.

I should’ve turned it toward the light better to catch the shine of the embossing powder!

My second card, I was inspired by a friend who sent me a card in the new mini slim card size 3 ½ x 6!  The new Verdant Leaf Collage is the perfect size for it!  I have another idea to try with this die but I wanted to go ahead and post because otherwise I just get too many pictures and the post gets too long!

The green turned out kind of blah. ugh. eek!  It’s Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness Oxides, then water and gold spatters.

Sentiments from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set and Friendship Floral Heart stamp set. I black heat embossed the Thank You on vellum.

Before I go, I want to tell you the measurements for the pop up inside piece on the first card.

  • For the first card cut your 8 ½ x 11 piece of white cardstock in half, exactly 5 ½ inches.  Leave one but cut the other one down to 8 inches, so it’s 5 ½ x 8.
  • Die cut the Sweet Bay Collage die centered in the 5 ½ x 8 piece, then score that piece at 4 inches… that will be your mountain fold.
  • Then I scored 1 ⅜ inches from both sides of that center score line and those will be your valley folds.
  • Then all that’s left is to finish everything and glue the longer sides to the inside of your regular A2 size card base with a side fold.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thank you for stopping by!  Make something today!  Copy or try something new! hehe  I have a collection of ideas I want to copy…we need a national copy day so I get some made! lol  ttul!

3 Cards from Memory Box… Let It Snow!

Three cards, three pictures of each, three snowflakes or four!  ❤

I’ll start with this Clean and Simple one…still loving this blue green pine needle color!

Just a strip of Memory Box plaid with gold foil lines in it…

poppystamps Shiny Snowflakes again…

Memory Box Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs die and Let It Snow sentiment from Memory Box Spirit of Christmas stamp set.

Card size 5 ½ inches square.

Next one is another wreath…wreaths are always in season!

Same Let It Snow sentiment, same snowflakes but I went back to the new Memory Box Bountiful Wreath.  Die cut and inked with a little Distress ink.

Some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink brushed on to shadow the die cut.

This one is 5 ¼ inches square…

The last one is a statement in contrast for sure! 😀

Bold plaid from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 pad…same sentiment…same snowflakes with the addition of Birch Press Design Frosty Flake Layer Die set…I used all three, A, B and C.

The day I was making these it snowed big time, then it didn’t snow the next day but it snowed again yesterday!  It’s nice and bright here! Now that I’m sitting here looking at the pictures, I kinda wish I’d tried black for the top, fine snowflake layer….hehe… next time!

Here it is January 2nd already.  It feels like we had three Saturdays this week!  Anybody else think that too?! lol

Thanks for stopping by today! All the best to you and happy cardmaking new year too!

Memory Box Winter Scene Collage Tunnel Card…

Hi everyone! The forecast is…brrrrr…looking at this card!  A tunnel card using new Memory Box dies. Evergreen Sky Collage is the top layer, next down the Lamplight Tree Collage, next down Tall Fir Collage, next down Small Pine Tree Collage and next down the Cabin Snowglobe. I used the new Snowy Forest 3D Embossing Folder for the background.

I inked up the trees with Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Inks and the mini round ink blending tools.  I find these easier to keep the ink where I want it.  I did mask off a few places with post it tape.

I added a little Memory Box Fairy Sugar Dewdrop glitter glue to the clouds, lamp post, smoke and roofline.  I really like this stuff, it’s thinner than the other glitter glues.  I squirt out a blob and paint it on… I like having that control and it covers nice.

The JOY sentiment is from the beautiful new stamp set with coordinating dies, Spirit of Christmas. Gorgeous sentiments and images to color!  So many cards I want to make! hehe  ❤

Ink your cardstock with the same Distress Oxide inks I used on the trees or Taylored Expressions Spearmint cardstock is a great match.  I die cut the poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames die and added it over the top with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

On the inside I used one of the awesome sentiments from this new poppystamps stamp set, Joyous Christmas Wishes.  I love it so much!  Beautiful verses for the inside of our cards this year!  YAY!

I’m excited to be making Christmas cards!

Have a great rest of the week and thank you so much for stopping by!

p.s. All of the dies I used today are so versatile! Use them alone or with other dies you already own! So many possibilities!

poppystamps Proper Brick House Card…

Hi everyone! I had fun last week playing with some new dies.  I thought, this house needs smoke!  So it turned into a tall Christmas card!

O Holy Night, Starry Burst and Pine Tree Hill dies came out last year in the Christmas releases.  I did use a little bit of sparkle pen in the burst die cut. The Cottage Picket Fence is from this year.

The house and parts are inked with Distress Oxide inks.  I die cut the house again in white and cut out the door and window frames.

I found the stamped sentiment in an old Memory Box set Wintertime Fairies. Linked below too.

This house makes me smile… I grew up in a red brick house.  ❤

Thank you for stopping by today! Talk to you again soon!

Lawn Fawn Fishing Birthday Card…

Happy Summer Monday to you!  Family birthday card show and tell time again!

This one is for a boy that loves to fish and pretty much most things outdoors!  Lawn Fawn stamps and dies except for the cattails… they’re from Hello Bluebird.

I inked the mountains with Espresso oxide ink and barely on the dirt borders.  The pond is die cut from white and inked with Peacock Feathers I think.   The sky is a Rosie’s Roadshow cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.

Here’s what I used…

 

Thanks for stopping by! Keep cool! ha!

5 Memory Box Die Cards….

I’ve been working on cards!  This is a long post so keep scrolling!  

I wanted to make something cool with this NEW Leafy Tree die… it looks Summery anyway!  I also used the NEW Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set… I like it a lot!  I die cut the Leafty Tree Frame in TE Peapod cardstock and colored the tree trunk with a dark brown Copic Sketch Marker!  It covers the green really well!

The sentiment is from the NEW poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.  So many good sentiments in this set.  I’m going to get a lot of use out of it.

I love how the leaves can be embossed with this Leafy Tree Frame die and then inked with a little stamp pad ink.  I used TE Peapod ink to match the cardstock. The background is Tumbled Glass Oxide ink brushed on to a Toffee/kraft piece of cardstock…same as the card front. I like the look it gave as compared to using it on white.

 

The next card…same dies… but I cut the Leafy Tree Frame in Brown, then in a scrap of green and trimmed off the frame and trunk parts..

Sentiment from the same poppystamps set…

 

Next I played with the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle…

This card is greener IRL… the pictures turned out more blue… it looks ‘beachy’ here! lol  I think I might have to switch back to east windows for Summer pictures.

I used the NEW Stylish Rectangle Trio die and the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle for this card and inlaid them both in the card panel that I pieced together with three Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstocks, HERE

The happy die was new last year… then some enamel dots and why did this card take me hours! lol   I guess that’s pretty normal around here. lol


Next two cards I used the same Birthday circle die, just cut it out from the frame but one is the NEW pattern paper pad Garden Folly, HERE and the other TE cardstocks.  I used the NEW Scribble Rose Trio and Background die also.

 

I’m not sure about these colors at all!  I debated even showing the card! lol  But here it goes.

I used TE Dijon and Peapod cardstocks and ink pads  I know…interesting! lol  Taylored Expressions has been so good to tell us what Copic markers match their ink pads and cardstock too!  So I colored the die cut with matching Copics!

Oh, I used the NEW Gracious Leaves 3D Embossing folder too!  It’s really pretty made up and inked for accent.

This card I cut a circle from the embossed panel and mounted it to the card base with foam mounting tape.  The Rose Trio die is recessed a little then… I really like how it looks. The word ‘wishes’ is from the  Big and Little Words clear stamp set

I’m gonna stop now before your eyes cross from this crazy variety of cards! lol

Thank you so much for stopping by and scrolling forever!  I appreciate it and hope I made you smile!
