Memory Box Poinsettia Watercolor Floral and Curled Script Video…


Hi everyone!  Look at these beautiful NEW dies!  I love the Curled Script dies and I have a video below to show you how I’m using them… WITHOUT GLUE!

This poinsettia!  SO GORGEOUS!  Memory Box illustrator Dave designs the most beautiful florals all year but I’m always so happy to see the NEW poinsettias every year! I LOVE this one too!

I kept my card clean and white so the designs would pop! White is so ‘Winter’! lol  For us that live in snow country anyway! lol

Again I used the envelope cover picture to put the poinsettia together.  It looks hard!  I even thought, oh, this looks hard!  IT IS NOT HARD AT ALL!  Yay!  I meant to show this in the video but I forgot. ugh

Just lay the largest piece on the envelope cover and layer up with a bit of glue and boom! it’s done!

LOOK at the detail!

Yes I sharpened the photo but it’s so much more beautiful in person!

The holly die… oh yes!  It’s NEW from poppystamps!  It’s called Layered Holly Branch… this die is going to be a staple in the stash! I love it!  I love holly anyway. lol  Tim and I got married in December and we had holly on all the pews and in the floral arrangements… oh, it was pretty and timeless!

I have to tell you….I have turned over a new leaf this year so to speak.  I’m am so bad about not finishing the inside of the card and stamping my name on the back.  So when it’s time to send, I’m hurrying to get cards in the mail… well, so far this year with Christmas cards, I have stamped the inside and my name on the back!  I’m shocking myself! lol  Kinda late for New Year resolutions. hoho

A2 size card…

ok – here’s my video on adhering this type of die…email me if you have any questions. Click on it to see it large.

Thank you so much for coming to see my card.  I hope you’ll try this method and let me know how it goes!

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!

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

Birch Press Design Adornment Santa Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s looking a little festive here today!  A super cute Santa in classic Memory Box style!  I love it!

This is the NEW Adornment Santa die from Birch Press Design.  Die cuts in white, a flesh color and red cardstocks.

I added a couple dies that aren’t available anymore, the holly and the postage frame.  I know we all have a collection though! hoho

Be Merry is heat embossed with white embossing powder and this sentiment from the BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings. There is a circle surrounding it but I didn’t ink it.

HOHOHO is from Poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet die set.

My plaid pattern paper is from Dashing Holiday Memory Box 6×6 paper pad.

My card turned out 4 ½ in x 6 ½ inches so it will fit in an A7 envelope and post for one forever postage stamp!

So happy with this card!  Yay!  I hope you like it too!

Tomorrow night at midnight EST, I’ll have a Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember post with a collaboration!  You can guess with who! lol

talk to you again soon!

NEW poppystamps Harvest Oval Frame and Fanciful Fall Leaves Card…

Hi everyone! Are you thinking of Fall colors these days?  Is this you?  There’s something about every season that I love but Christmas is my fave.  I truly miss the Summer nights when it’s light until almost ten though!

I started with a die cut A2 size piece of Canson Bristol from their orange pad.  Using ink blending brushes and regular Distress Ink pads I started with Peeled Paint at the bottom, added a little Forest Moss, then moved to Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge, then the top is Wild Honey!

Yes there is a pattern.  I took an old Memory Box stencil, Raymelle #88541, but any stencil would work,  laid it over my inked panel and with a wet paper towel I dabbed off the color through the stencil.  I LOVE it!  I kept it very subtle…didn’t take off much ink really.

I die cut the NEW Harvest Oval Frame four times from natural color cardstock and glued them together instead of using foam tape this time.  Glued them directly to the inked card panel

I die cut the leaves and acorns from the NEW Fanciful Fall Leaves die in the same Bristol cardstock and inked with the same ink pads that I did the card panel.

I forgot to say that I heat set the ink blended panel with my heat tool and heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder before I glued on the oval.

The sentiment is from the Memory Box Harvest Love and Kindness clear stamp set.  I inked it with Black pigment ink because I get a sharper image using black then using clear ink, in the MISTI so I could do it over and over a few times so I get a good coating but I don’t squish it to death when I’m stamping it. I have a press tool that our grandson 3D printed for me… I really like having it.  I know there are several out there on the market.

I think that’s it! This would be an easy card to make multiples of.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you’re enjoying the new releases from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Design!

NEW Memory Box Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Card and a storage tip…

It’s a beautiful day here in south central Iowa! I should’ve been out riding my bike this morning! lol  Do any of you have an e bike? Do you like it?  I’m sure tempted to go look and try one of them.

A clean and simple look to my card today.  I used a champagne colored foil to hot foil the sentiment but it looks black.  Figures.

I  didn’t think to try to catch the light when I was taking pictures but it really is foil! poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil and Cut Die Set.

I used Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles…it’s my go to for cutting panels it seems.  I like it!

I embossed the new 3D folder and die cut the leaves with the included dies, glued them to the white A2 panel except for the top middle leaf, I used the thin mounting tape that I’ll link to below.

I made some pretty little flowers with poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set from the most recent release.  The smallest die cut, cut two times for each flower and layered together and glued in the center directly to the panel.

I used the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers die from the most recent release and made some pretty tropical dragonflies to land on the card!

Straight forward die cutting and gluing…no inking even! BOOM! lol  Two non inked cards in a row!

Tip: The next two pictures are how I decided to store the 3D folders and dies using the packaging that they come in!  I think it’s really slick!

I take the heavyweight clear piece off of the sturdy cardboard backer they come with and cut the top off of the plastic with a scissors so it becomes a slot when you put it back over the cardboard backer and you can slip the folder and the dies in and out of!  No additional plastic sleeve needed for storage! Perfect!

Thank you for stopping by…holler if you have any questions!

poppystamps Grand Whittle Ice Cream Card…

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year when we’re all trying to keep cool! This card makes me smile because Breyers Natural Neapolitan Ice Cream is a favorite around here!

I made this card before I made the flower cards the other day and without even realizing I used strips again! lol   I love how it turned out!

So cute and screams SUMMER!

I’ll link up what I used below…straight forward for the most part.  I made the narrow frame by taping two of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies together.  (I leave them taped together just in case I need to make another before I need them apart!)

I stamped the sentiments then used the sentiment die that comes in the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings set. 

This last shot is a little too pink… I didn’t try to change it but it’s Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake cardstock, I’ll ink below.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!  I can’t believe it’s almost the 4th of July!  I haven’t made a 4th card yet this year but I love making patriotic cards.  I made a card to share next with Memory Box NEW Release.  Then I have a bunch of birthday cards to share so I hope you don’t get tired of me blasting you with blog posts!  😀

Birch Press Design Tropical Hibiscus and Star Flowers Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Working with new products from Birch Press Designs for my two cards today.  I made a card using them the day before I made these but I didn’t like it so I brought out the strip CAS card design again!  I’ve used it before HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Two for one when you cut two colors of cardstock. The flowers are cut from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Lush Green and Fresh Aqua.

I used poppystamps NEW Modest Greetings 2 Foil and Cut Die Set and Silver Foil.

The sentiment on this card is from the Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.

The NEW BPD Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers die set is so pretty with the layered look for the flower and the leaves.  When you die cut it scores the area where you add the layer so you know exactly where to glue the pieces.  Super easy!

The NEW BPD Star Flowers Contour Layers die set and the BPD Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die set (smaller branch) on this card… same as the Hibiscus.  You can see the marks where to place the layers… love that! No guessing or wondering if you got it in the right place.

Both cards are A2 size. The Hibiscus card I used a little bit of thin foam mounting tape, the one I’m linking below.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Make some strip cards!

poppystamps Perfect Posies Bouquet Card…

Hi everyone! Another floral card to share today.  I need to glue pink paper flowers to my three hydrangea bushes!  No flowers on them yet!

I die cut the poppystamps NEW Perfect Posies Bouquet die two times in white.  I inked up one in green distress oxide colors using an ink blending brush and the other I trimmed off some of the flowers to ink up in pink distress oxide colors.

There are a few blooms on this Posies die that match up with the blooms in the NEW poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set, so I used the two smaller sizes of those for pink blooms.

I cut an A2 size panel of white cardstock, die cut it with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate, then embossed it with the Memory Box Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder.  The dots make it look like a bee has been buzzing around! lol

I used a white Posca pen to color the little green blooms white on the green Perfect Posies Bouquet die cut.

Memory Box has come out with a lot of Foil and Cut die sets this time.  This is a new to me technique but I’m getting the hang of it.  I really like how pretty and elegant they make a card sentiment.

For this card I used the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings 1 Foil and Cut die set.  Gold foil on white cardstock.  I love having a die to just cut one sentiment.  I’m not one to make a bunch of stuff ahead.  I just make as I go along to go with what I’m making.  It’d be fun to do a survey and find out how many make a bunch of elements and then sit down and make cards.  I wish I could.  It overwhelms me to have too much to choose from.  Interesting… I bet there’d be a lot of creative ways to go about making cards!

There’s a NEW Memory Box Intricate Mini Butterflies die so I had to add one to my card.  I die cut it in white and inked it with Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide ink.

I added some Fairy Drops and it was done.  YAY!  It’s kinda vintagey looking in a modern way!

I can’t believe it’s Friday already!  Hope you’re getting some Summer things done…eek!  It’s time I did! lol

Memory Box Charlotte Blooms and More…

Are you a fan of lime?  This is one of the sheets from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad!  It turned out fun!

Love this sentiment set from Poppystamps too! I stamped it directly on the panel, then on white and cut out the banner and mounted it over the stamped banner. Say It Big is the stamp set and it has coordinating dies too!  Love that!

For this card I die cut the NEW Memory Box Charlotte Blooms dies in white cardstock and with the mini ink blending tool, colored the centers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I die cut the Leaves from the Charlotte set in the same green as the background.

I glued the flowers and leaves directly to the green card panel.  The only thing popped up a bit is the banner.

This is an A6 size card.

The first card I made using the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die set is the one below…I die cut in the yellows from the Memory Box 6×6 Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  The flower centers from the Earth Neutral pad. The leaves from the Lush Green pad.

For the butterfly I used the Memory Box Gloriosa Butterly Duo Outlines die, the smaller one from the set and the underneath butterfly is the NEW Memory Box Ava Butterflies die, die cut from the Sunny Orange cardstock pad.  Fun!  It you use Ava on it’s own, you can fluff up the sections I think.  I still have to try it. lol

I wanted to tie in the foiled New Memory Box Posh Birthday Wishes hot foil and die set so I used the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die cut in Woodsy Plaid 6×6 pad and NEW Polished Foil 6×6 pad.

Kraft cardbase and A2 size.

Birch Press Design Prime Peony Duo Contour Layers Card…

Hi everyone!  This week has zoomed by me! But it’s Peony time of year and a perfect time to showcase this beautiful new die from Birch Press Design.

I watercolored these blooms with the newest set of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens Set A. Die Cut with Strathmore watercolor Brown pad.

Then I added a frame from the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die set.

I ink blended an A2 size panel of Strathmore Best Mixed Media cardstock (the brown pad).  Wow it blends nice.  I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the first time! and Peacock Feathers. I still use the mini round ink blending foams a lot and that’s what I used here.

Hugs is a new hot foil plate and die set from Birch Press Design also.  Hugs Sugar Script is the name of it.

I used silver hot foil and Bazzill Card Shoppe Robin’s Egg for Hugs.

I glued everything flat except for hugs.  It has thin mounting tape on the ends. Starlitstudio has it in stock!  I’ll link below!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it and hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather has been amazing here this week! YAY!

Simon Says Stamp Arched Greens and SALE!

Back again today with a NEW stamp from the latest Simon Says Stamp release

I received the rubber stamp Arched Greens to create with.  The center Arch section is removable!

I stamped it all in the MISTI on Canson XL watercolor paper with regular Distress inks.  I inked up the stamp and spritzed it and stamped it.  I used two different greens and the new prize ribbon blue.

It needed some flowers so I got out the NEW Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers die set.  I die cut in the same watercolor paper and smooshed the cuts into Worn Lipstick Distress Ink that I’d spritzed with water.

I die cut the center out with the Memory Box Nested Globes die… it was a little short so I had to use the mat to keep it from cutting the bottom straight line, then readjust the die to lengthen the cut. SSS does have a die set that coordinates with this stamp!

The sentiment is a new poppystamps hot foil plate and die set with several sentiments.  I’ll link it below too.

poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set Easel Card…

Hi everyone! I haven’t purchased my red geraniums yet!  I need to get shopping!  Today’s card I brought out the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set to plant my flowers in!

I die cut and edged all my pieces with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I love this NEW poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set! I used an old mouse pad and stylus to do a little flower shaping also.

Here’s a close up of the HELLO from the NEW poppystamps Birthday Wishes Poe Script Hot Foil Plate and Dies set.

I used Gold Hot Foil but I didn’t get a great picture that shows the goldness! lol

I backed the basket and used a strip on the base of a plaid from the Memory Box Woodsy Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

Memory Box Fairy Dewdrops for the flower centers…

Showing how it fits in an envelope.  I will use an A6 size when I mail this.  My flower is up to high for an A2.

It didn’t want to lay completely flat without me holding it down, but it does go completely flat.

I put the flowers together like they’re shown on the front of the package.  I put the easel card together just like it shows on the back of the package!  That helps so much to have pictures!

Addicted to Stamps and More – Die Cuts and/or Stencils

Everything is super green here!  I have ferns for the front porch, now I just need a couple red baskets for the back porch.  Let the watering begin!

Do any of you have Boston Ferns?  How do you water them?  Mine are always so full, it’s hard to get water to go in from the top, so I fill up a pail of water, take the fern down and sit the pot in the pail of water and let it soak up.  I’ve had really good luck with that in the past but I wonder if there’s a faster way?!

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll talk to you later!
