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!

Linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge… Use Dies and/or Punches

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!

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!

Memory Box Dies, Flower, Stems and More on Three Cards…

Hello!  I have three cards to share today…starting with the tallest and ending with the shortest! lol  For this card I was inspired by a challenge and a way to use the extra flower I had ready. Here’s a link to the challenge…(click on the logo).  I managed to keep it very CAS and complete the optional twist also with only die cuts!  yay! lol

#thank you so much to the AAA Cards blog for choosing my card as a winner!  HERE

I went with the Slimline card size so I could use the NEW Memory Box Slim Diagonal Collage die, the NEW Wildflower Stems die and the NEW Thank You Posh Script.

The flower is cut from watercolor paper and colored with Distress ink refills.  Definitely Clean and Simple!

Next card….

I absolutely love this mini slim line size card… 3 ½ inches by 6 inches.  I don’t know why but I find it charming! lol

I used the Memory Box NEW Lavender Stems,  the greenery from the NEW Daisy Stems and the greenery from the NEW Wildflower Stems.

I die cut from watercolor cardstock and painted with Distress Ink refills again.  I don’t know why I reach for these so much.  I have lots of other watercolor mediums. hehe

I used one of the NEW Memory Box cardstock pads… I love already coordinated paper!  The plaid is from the NEW Memory Box Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  This pad is so beautiful!  One side has gold foil accents and the back side is plain.  I used the plain this time but wow, the gold sides are so gorgeous!

Sentiments from poppystamps Springtime Fun and Memory Box Big and Little Spring stamp sets.

Next card…

This was my first card with the flowers I cut and painted.  From here they got simpler and taller! lol  This is a regular A2 size card.

Wildflower Stems, Seed Stems, Daisy Stems on top of the Stylish Rectangle Trio die.

Pattern papers from the Memory Box Garden Folly, Christmas Plaid and Garland Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pads.

The sentiment is from poppystamps Greeting Basics.

Give me a holler if you have any questions!  Thank you for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Puppy Birthday Card…

Meet Maggie! lol  There’s a new toy poodle at our middle daughter’s house. So I had to make our youngest grandson a cute Magic Iris Maggie card for his 6th birthday in January.  So fun!  Charley loves it!

I used the Memory Box Birdhouse die set for the doghouse because I don’t own the Lawn Fawn birdhouse die.

The dog dish and bone are an old big punch or were they an old Quickutz die…I can’t remember!  I looked through so much stuff to find something that would work! lol

The Lawn Fawn design team is so inspiring!  It’s nice as a card designer/maker not to always have to come up with a new idea!

Here it is closed… pull the arrow tab down and it opens like a camera lens, sorta kinda!  hehe

and a video… it’s bad but gives you an idea of how it works.

Memory Box All That Happiness meets poppystamps Woven Basket…

Truth!  and on the inside I used the word ‘hugs’ from the same new Memory Box All That Happiness stamp and die sets.

I’m having fun using the new Memory Box Slim dies too!

I stamped and die cut one of the floral stamps in the set….simple Copic Sketch Marker coloring, the R30’s and YG61 and 63.

I die cut the basket from TE Toffee cardstock then I remembered my new Memory Box cardstock pads and found the perfect green to die cut the berries.  Dies from the new poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set.

A little white glaze pen on the berries…

Some baby pearls…

Popped up on mounting squares…

White heat embossed sentiment on TE black cardstock…

My granddaughter Attie sent me some pictures of her flowers popping up from the bulbs she planted last year.  It’s so fun to have a 17 year old so excited about growing flowers and food!  Her watermelons were the most amazing things ever last year!  Huge and delicious!  Here’s hoping it’s a bumper crop this year! lol

Memory Box and poppystamps Slimline Cards…

Hi everyone! A post today showing more new dies from Memory Box and poppystamps!  Memory Box is known for it’s butterflies!

Two new ones… so pretty!   These could be made up so many different ways and here I am doing monochrome! lol 

Sylvan Butterfly is the larger die set and Glade Buttlerfly is the smaller die set.

I chose the new Memory Box Happy Easter Posh Script die for the sentiment at the bottom but there are a few other new sentiment dies that would be beautiful also… Thank you Posh Script, Just a Note Posh Script and Birthday Mail Posh Script.

I did some inlaying with the new poppystamps Slim Leafy Collage die.  I cut in two colors and stuck the pieces back in.  It’s pretty with them left out too.  Just something therapeutic about using the pieces laying there. lol

For both my cards today I used the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die set… this is a cool set.  I especially love the smallest two for sentiments!  Trim to length!

My next card is another slimline…

I used the new Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad!  Almost too pretty to use!  I’m proud to say I used two pieces! lol  It took courage I’m telling ya’! lol

The gingham piece I die cut with the new Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles.  The plaid panel is cut with the Slim Basic Rectangle Layers… kinda nice you don’t have to measure!

I LOVE the new Memory Box Wooden Alpha!!!  I used them for SPRING today but I’m thinking masculine next!  So fun!

The light is changing again and always throws me off for taking pictures.  If you want to get a better idea of what the green color is… I stamped ‘happy’ from the new Memory Box  Big and Little Reverse Words stamp set with Altenew Frayed Leaf stamp pad!  I tried several greens and this one was right on as far as matching this gingham paper.

The purple I used for the Wooden Alpha is from the new Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad.

What better to put on a SPRING card than flowers and this new Memory Box Gerber Stems die set is perfect for this card!  Sweet blooms that will be beautiful colored too!  Our middle daughter had beautiful Gerbera Daisies for her outdoor, wildflower setting wedding.  Good memories!

Holler if I missed something.  I’m not sure what the standard size, if there is one, is for a slimline card.  These both ended up 8 ⅝ ths long and 3 ⅝ ths wide. I finally wrote down what size to cut the base so I don’t have to keep figuring it out every time!  ❤

Have a creative Friday afternoon!  Thank you for visiting my blog this week!

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 NEW Stained Glass Butterfly, poppystamps NEW Double Diamond Lattice Plate and SSS Birthday Sale!

HEY!  Happy Birthday! Just kidding but it’s nice to have Clean and Simple birthday cards in your stash ready to go! Dies help!

I used the NEW Memory Box Fresh Aqua 6×6 heavyweight cardstock 6×6 paper pad. Gorgeous papers! (My pictures turned out too blue :O)


I die cut the poppystamps Lattice Plate and NEW Double Diamond Lattice Plate from heavyweight white cardstock, glued them together and adhered them to an A2 panel of the new cardstock. Then adhered to an A2 white cardbase.

I love the depth and texture these lattice dies used together bring to the card front without extreme thickness.  This will mail for one postage stamp.

I die cut the NEW Stained Glass Butterfly in heavyweight white cardstock and layered it on a stitched square die cut of the NEW cardstock.

I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Memory Box Cherry Blossom Wreath stamp set on Taylored Expressions black cardstock. Cardstock makes a difference with white powder… this is Lawn Fawn’s white powder over Versamark ink.

A few enamel dots and done.  Sorry about the color, I wish I’d realized that before I edited the pictures. ugh. The card is actually the color of the new Memory Box die envelope.

Here’s a phone picture with the dies…

Have a fun weekend! If you’re up for shopping, here’s the link to Simon Says Stamp’s 19th birthday sale!

poppystamps Lattice Plate Card…

Hi everyone!  Bright card for you today!  Wake up if you’re not already! lol

I started by diecutting the NEW poppystamps Lattice Plate die…there’s just something about flowers with lattice!

I needed something to go with it and was inspired by something I saw and now I can’t remember where or what. Shoot me now! haha

I love this poppystamps Floral Stem Collage die and it makes me think of a pretty garden with a fence and gate.

I’m not sure how I ended up with these colors!  :O I used regular Distress Ink pads and the mini ink blending tools.

I know the background color behind the lattice cut is Blueprint Sketch. I think the color behind the flower is Tumbled Glass with Blueprint spatters. I made this Monday or Tuesday and moved on to the next thing without even thinking to remember.  It’s so out of my normal color scheme… I can’t even decide if they really go together!  If it’s totally ugly, just ignore me! hehe

I used a sentiment from the poppystamps Greeting Basics stamp set… really liking this set. Another sentiment in the set that would’ve worked is ‘friends are flowers that never fade’.  Pretty and so true!

That’s it for today… off to take pictures of another Valentine and a couple cards with SSS new releases.  I still have family birthday cards to make!  I am behind…glad they love me anyway!  ❤

Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s what I used and a free die offer below!

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!

NEW poppystamps Whittle Unicorn and Whittle Tree Border Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Back today with a birthday card using the NEW poppystamps Whittle Unicorn and Whittle Tree Border dies.  It turned out cute!

I die cut everything in white cardstock…colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers…I wish I’d inked the background before I adhered the die cuts but I didn’t so I ended up coloring around the images with a Copic Sketch Marker.  Normally I would ink with stamp pad ink and an ink blending tool!

 

A close up…I used the poppystamps Whittle Clouds and Double Stitch Rectangle Frames dies for this card also.  Maybe the unicorn should’ve been standing on clouds?  So much for my imagination!  I always had trouble coming up with stories for school. lol

The Whittle Unicorn comes with these cute heart dies… I didn’t get them worked on to the front so I used them inside!

Sentiment from poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.

Back to cards! Thank you for stopping by!

Valentines with NEW Memory Box Dies…

Lots of pictures to share with you today!  You can tell by the colors here, it’s my usual Valentine ‘look’! ❤

I started with the black/plaid card and ended up with so many heart pieces by the time I cut the new Sprinkle Heart collage die in a few colors!

That led to the next card, then that card led to the next…you know how it goes when you have pieces and dies spread around! lol

I used the new Memory Box Sprinkle Heart Collage in kraft color and red cardstock.  The two complete hearts are from the smallest heart in the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die set.

The sentiments are from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set.

I used one of the plaid papers from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

 

Here’s the heart cuts in white from the Sprinkle Heart Collage.  I really liked how this turned out.  I had cuts from the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out too.  So I just messed around til it pleased my eyes!

I used a sentiment from the poppystamps Greeting Basics set for inside the heart.

I don’t know about you but I’m still using up all the twine!  I like Valentines day as a carry over for using red.  It’s my favorite color! lol

This card was inspired by an old card that I have sitting out on my book shelves in my office. It’s older than my blog! But I still love the card, so here’s this year’s addition! lol

Do you have any of the Memory Box 3D embossing folders yet?  They are all gorgeous!  This one is called Gracious Leaves.

Then more plaid paper from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

I die cut and inked the new Memory Box Woodgrain Heart and then die cut the new Sending Love Posh Script 3 times in red, glued them together and adhered to the heart.

I layered the plaid on to a piece of black cardstock also.

These 3 cards are all A2 size and flat to mail!

This last card is a small card, 3 ½ x 3 ½ inches.

I used some more pieces from all the die cuts I was making.  ❤  It makes me happy!  lol

The sentiment is from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set again.

I hope you’re inspired to make some fun CAS valentines to give to friends and family this year. ❤

More to come!  Thanks for stopping by!
