poppystamps and Memory Box Flower Field Card…


Hi everyone!  Thinking ahead a little for some Mother’s Day inspiration.  I had fun ink blending a piece of bristol card and die cutting it with poppystamps Flower Field and Potpourri Flower dies!

I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink pads and TE Ink Blending Brushes.

The light really catches the gems and sparkles so beautifully!

I used the NEW poppystamps Flower Field Frame die to emboss a design on a white cardstock panel.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Flower Field Tall Curve Border die from the ink blended card two times and three of the flowers from the NEW Potpourri Flower Set from the leftover scraps of the ink blended card.

I die cut MOM from the Memory Box Wooden Alpha die set.

I trimmed the white panel down and layered it with thin mounting tape to a white A2 cardbase.

I adhered all the die cuts with Tombow mono multi glue and added a white heat embossed sentiment from poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp set with mounting tape.

Memory Box Fairy Jewels in Pastel added for the flower centers.  I love how it turned out!

Thank you for stopping by! May is coming for us in the midwest and there won’t be a shortage of flowers!

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 Potpourri Flower Set Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have a floral duo to share today.  Almost got off the kraft path but notice I managed to bring in some on one card! lol

I die cut a bunch of the NEW poppystamps Potpourri Flower Set dies and played around with different colors and ended up with a lot left over!

I used a stylus and old mouse pad to give the flower petals some poof and then added an enamel dot in the centers.

I used the NEW Memory Box Daisy Blossom Stem die for the some of the leaves on both.  The pink card has additional leaves from the NEW Memory Box Layered Impatiens die and Memory Box Seed Stems die.  I added white paint pen to the circles at the end of the stems.

I liked poppystamps Penelope Pinpoint Frame die for the background on the pink card and poppystamps Simple With Sympathy die for the sentiment.

Here I used poppystamps Lattice Plate die for the background, die cut in white cardstock and poppystamps New Freestyle Hugs die for the sentiment in black and vellum.

I didn’t get the lavender background panel captured very well for color so I tried holding up in the hallway! lol

It’s a pretty color IRL!

Well crazy here!  It snowed yesterday! It didn’t last though. It’s really not unusual as I think back.  One year in April I was headed back to where I grew up and got caught in a blizzard!  It did last! eek!  Not fun driving!

Some place it’s tropical right now! lol  Not here!  Have a beautiful weekend. Looking forward to celebrating and time with family.

poppystamps Potpourri Flower, Freestyle Smile, Whittle Snail Card…

You’ve got mail!  It’s always so fun to get mail! Here’s mail and a smile from this cute blushing snail! lol 

I die cut the NEW Potpourri Flower Set in white and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I didn’t look at any pictures for coloring…flying by the seat of my pants again! haha

I layered the NEW ps Penelope Pinpoint Frame on top of Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue cardstock A2 size panel.  Then I adhered those two, to a purple from the Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad. 

First I laid the flowers out down the left side of the panel from the top.  Took a picture of them with my phone and put the snail down to see how it looked, it was too close to the right side of the card!  I didn’t like it there!  So I picked the flowers up with a piece of press and seal and reversed them to the right side bottom corner instead.  Much better! 

Then I die cut the NEW ps Freestyle Smile all in white, it was ok, so I die cut the top in black, too bold, so I die cut it in purple, nah, so I die cut it in yellow and that was it!  I’m a terrible decision maker! lol 

The sentiment is from ps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set.  Stamped in the MISTI with versamark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I glued the flowers down, then the snail and sentiments with mounting tape.  Then I pulled up a couple of the flowers to put one on her head and one right close to the body. 

I added yellow Fairy Gems last. 

I forgot to talk about the snail!  It’s die cut in kraft cardstock and edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.  I went over the mouth, eyes and added eyelashes with a micro black fine point pen. 

It’s a bright card and more fun in real life.  I like it!  That’s saying a lot of me cuz I don’t love yellow and purple! lol

It’s a rainy, dreary day here so we need bright!  Have a good one anyway!  ttul!

Memory Box Floral Birthday Card and poppystamps Floral Miss You Card…

Hi everyone! I did a little flower coloring with Copics Monday. Colorbook therapy!  It’s been so nice here, I hope the flowers don’t come up to soon!

I started with an A2 size cardbase. Topped it with a panel of the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock.  It’s heavyweight and die cut so nice for the Happy Birthday sentiment too!

Then I die cut and glued together, three for each side, the NEW Hex Half Pinpoint die.  Don’t you love how it makes the perfect base for the NEW floral dies?!

Here’s a picture of the dies I used and for the flowers and leaves I colored.

Here’s a picture of the Copic Marker colors I used.

It didn’t take a whole lot of cuts!  I was surprised.  After coloring, I used black and white glaze pens to add some accents.

 

Look at this NEW Memory Box stamp set!!!  (Full picture lower in the post)  It matches the font of this Happy Birthday Posh Script die and the Miss you Posh Script die on my next card!  I absolutely love matching fonts for the inside of my cards! ❤

 

This picture I’m trying to show a little of the dimension.  I didn’t use any foam mounting tape and it will still go in the mail under ¼ inch thick for one forever stamp!  YAY! 

My second card for today is just plain floral fun!

The Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Paper pad came out for this card.  I love having 3 shades of each color to coordinate!  It sure saves time digging through cardstock to find matching pieces!

I started with an A2 size kraft cardbase. I die cut the NEW poppy Penelope Pinpoint Frame in white, glued it on.  I die cut the poppy Lattice Plate in white and glued it on.

Next came the NEW super pretty poppy Flower Field Frame die cut in one of the pinks in the Berry Red 6×6 pad and glued on.

Then some Memory Box Fairy Jewels for the flower centers.

Here’s the dies I used for this card…

and here’s the NEW stamp set that matches these posh script dies!  and the Berry Red 6×6 pad.

Haha!  Isn’t she the cutest! Look at that snout!  I added a couple more layers to it. lol  

I added the eyelashes with a color pencil!  I also went over the partial cuts at the ears, eyes, snout and legs with the same color pencil. 

Miss piggy is just one cut and I edged her with a little gathered twigs distress ink so she wouldn’t look too clean! haha  The thought did cross my mind that she’d be super cute in a mud puddle! 

She’s super cute…not sure who I’ll send it to but usually when I type that as soon as I hit publish I think of someone! 

Thank you all for hanging in here for this long post!  I promise not to make long a habit! lol

NEW Memory Box Riverbank Large Layered Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Dies Card…

Hi everyone! We’re far from flowers blooming in Iowa today…woke up to ice and now a little snow! haha

Paper flowers are always in season though!  YAY!

and this one is so pretty and easy to make!  It’s really a clean and simple card with Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads.  I used the 3 yellows from the Sunny Orange collection pad… prettier in real life!  The green is from the Green Lush pad.

I edged everything with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

When I glued the three petal sections together, I laid them on top of the envelope picture for placement… that sure works slick.  If I hadn’t thought of that last year, I would be fiddling for hours with placement. Insert eye rolling!

This is an A2 size card.

I die cut the Exquisite Leaf Frame, the three leaf image and single leaf image from the Exquisite Leaf Set for this card.  Gorgeous, gorgeous dies!!!  I love these leaves!  It’s gonna be fun playing with all the new dies.

I used a sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Colorful Life stamp set.  White heat embossed on Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock.  Another fabulous set full of great sentiments!  Wishing you Happiness on your special day….enjoy each Joyful moment…your sweet smile can change the world…Big Hugs…Hello Sunshine and tons more!

I die cut Hello Lovely with one of the rectangles from the poppystamps contempo Greetings set.

I think that’s everything!  A little Spring in your day today and this yellow is so pretty and I’m not a yellow person! haha

Thank you for stopping by and for all your encouraging words!  I got my Valentines all done for the family and I’ll be posting them soon… that’s where I’ve been!  We had our annual Valentine, pizza party Saturday evening. Super fun!  Whoever wants to, makes ATCs and we pass them out.  Lilli was super creative and made cookie boxes!  So fun and yummy!

I’ll be back soon with more NEW from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Designs!

Birch Press Design Adornment Peony Card…

Hi friends and papercrafters!  A CAS card to share with you today.

Inlaid die cutting with Birch Press Design’s New Adornment Peony die. I die cut the flower in white and ink blended Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink on the flower petals and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks on the leaves with Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. This is an awesome set…the solid dies for backing the die piecing parts is in included!

I die cut the top panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles Die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the poppystamps  Diamond Sentiments clear stamp set with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink in the MISTI.

I added a scatter of several Memory Box Clear Fairy Drops.

It’s lighter, pinker than my pictures show. ugh.  I tried. lol

It’s unusually warm here so far today…55˚ but suppose to go down to 12˚ before the day is over!  eek!  Guess I’ll stay in and keep working.

poppystamps Tall Curved Heart Arch Card…

Happy Valentines Day!  Here I am at the last minute sharing one more heart card!

I die cut the new poppystamps Tall Curved Heart Arch two dies from white cardstock and colored both with Copic Sketch Markers.  R24, G82, G85, E42 and E44.

I love this sentiment from poppystamps Marzipan Greetings.  I inked with Versamark in the Misti and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I die cut two poppystamps Tall Curve Background from a piece of Simple Stories woodgrain pattern paper and layered them on the poppystamps Oval Fold Frame die cut in Memory Box 6×6 Garland Stripes and Dots pattern paper pad.

I colored a scrap of white with R24 and die cut some small hearts using the small heart die that comes with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die. I glued them to the oval that is a die in the Oval Fold Frame set.

It’s an A2 size card that should mail easily with one postage stamp.

It turned out fun!  I always love kraft and paper hugs! ❤

Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch Card…

Hi everyone! Enjoying some sunshine today and warmer temps! yay!  I decided to use this new Memory Box Serene Bird and Branch die to make a love card!  It’s that time of year!

I die cut the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die in a white panel of cardstock. Then I ran it back through with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate die.

I die cut a red heart with the Double Stitch Happy Heart also.

I used Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Berry Red, Fresh Aqua and Lush Green.

For the sentiment I heat embossed the sentiment from the poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp set in white on black cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I added a few Christmas Fairy Jewels.

I adhered the bird and the sentiment with mounting tape.

poppystamps NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn (horse today) Barn Easel Card…

Hi everyone! It’s freezin season but the sun is shining and it’s warm enough for me in the house! haha

poppystamps came out with this NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn die and I wasn’t in a unicorn mood after I die cut in white I guess. I decided to try an inked Distress Ink unicorn that ended up a horse! lol

Then I remembered the poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel die set and I was off after two other starts!

I had some fun with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die.  It was one of my starts but I decided not to use it this time but then I decided to cut the streamers off and use them on the barn!  Barns always need embellished, right?!

I’m pretty tickled with how it turned out.  I took a bunch of pictures hoping they show what I did.

I made a little stand for the tufts of grass die cuts cut in TE Peapod cardstock and that whole piece with the horse lays down on the inside when you fold it up.

The horse is kinda like a second easel…

A strip of cardstock that I scored at ¼ in, glued the grass and then the horse to the ¼ inch part.

The sentiment, from the poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments clear stamp set, is heat embossed on Taylored Expressions Cherry Pop cardstock with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I put the easel together just like it shows on the back of the package.  I have to look every time! lol

It folds flat to fit in the envelope…

I’m not sure who I’ll send this too but hopefully someone that loves horses!

Holler if you have any questions!

Now back to the other two starts and see if they go anywhere!  There’s another new unicorn set with smaller unicorns and rainbows.  Cute!

Thank you for stopping by today! We’re headed toward Valentines Day at a gallop! haha

poppystamps Whittle Friendly Snowman and Double Joy Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy with this card!  I probably could’ve added more and tried to bling it up but this time I just left him to say JOY to the world! ❤

This is a new poppystamps snowman die… so whimsical and fun!  Oh you know a little holly might’ve been nice… I always think of things after! lol

I put him on a bed of snow from the new poppystamps Layered House Globe die set.

He just melts your heart, doesn’t he?! ❤  Oh…a heart on his belly to represent the O for joy would’ve been super fun too!

I used a plaid paper from last Winter’s 6×6 plaid paper pad called Christmas Plaid!  I’m not finding it to link to anymore but I’ll link to this year’s pad that would work too! ugh.  Sorry about that.  I don’t know why I grabbed this one instead of the new one.

I die cut him from heavy white cardstock and colored his parts with Copic Sketch Markers.  I backed the circles with a smaller punch circle so I would have something to glue his eyes and carrot too.  Then I used mounting tape behind his top part, mounting tape behind the snow hill and mounting tape behind the top parts of the letters J and Y.

I die cut the plaid with the largest Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die. Then I matted it with black cardstock and adhered them to a 5 ½ x 5 ½ piece of green from the Memory Box 6×6  Lush Green cardstock pad. It matches perfectly with this plaid! yay!

‘To The World’ sentiment is from the new Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings again… this is such a good set!

I love this new poppystamps Double Joy die too… you get so many options with the two dies included in the set!

Mr. Frosty is 5 ½ in. x 5 ½ in. square. So cute!  I need to make some more of these and vary them a little as I go! hehe

Thank you so much for stopping by and your comments and for shopping through my links!  I appreciate it!

poppystamps Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so in love with this set!  I copied and made it like the photo on the package! lol  I was making it for card kits so I just copied to skip the design process… Thank you Dave/poppystamps for designing and inspiring our cardmaking! ❤

So much potential though, for beautiful Winter cards!  I know I”ll have to make it again and again with other dies too!  I can see a snowman in the picture, can’t you? a sleigh? laughing all the way… brrrr lol

I have a lot of pictures because my camera does better on an overcast day…or maybe it’s me that does better on an overcast day! haha

On the back of the packaging are pictures of how it goes together.  I’ve made a lot of easel cards but I still have to look to remember how these go together.  Very easy.

I love being able to display cards.  I use mine for decorating the mantel until I have to mail them!

The Warmest Wishes sentiment is from Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings clear stamp set.  So many good sentiment sets anymore from Memory Box and poppystamps…I love it when I can match the front with the inside!

The easel will lay down flat and then into an A2 envelope!  So nice!  I’m sitting here looking at it wishing I could show you IRL! lol

So festive and beautiful!  I love making for Christmas! I hope you’re inspired!  Have a good week and I’ll talk to you later!

Simon Says Stamp Handmade Holiday Release…

A snowy hello to you today!  Simon Says Stamp sent me one of their new embossing folders, Snowy Path, to play with for this release.

I hadn’t use the new poppystamps Snowman and Trees die set yet so I thought it would be perfect in this shimmery snowy scene.

oh dear… it just dawned on me that I colored the path as if it was ice! lol  Oh well, you can see it can be a path or a stream!  A Winter Wonderland!

I inked everything with Blender Brushes and Distress Oxide Inks. The carrot nose is a Copic Sketch Orange Marker.

I spritzed with some Frost and Sparkle sprays and Winter Blizzard glitter glue.

A sweet, super shimmery, Winter scene A2 size card.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Inside Christmas Greetings clear set and stamped in Ranger black archival ink.

There are several new embossing folders in this release and stencils and stamps and dies… festive and beautiful!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’m working on some other cards and hope to show another one on Saturday!   See you again soon!

Here’s what I used to make this card…

Memory Box Christmas!!!!! It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas Card…

Hello and happy days to you and me!  It’s beginning to look like Christmas here on my blog! YAY!  It’s always challenging to decide what to start with but I guess I felt like coloring because I started with a stamp set and coordinating die first!

Festive Christmas Greetings is the name of this set…

Traditional, traditional, traditional! lol  Red, Green and Gold!  What can I say! lol

I used the NEW Pine Needle Trio die to back the oval, colored piece…

and the NEW poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames to set it all off!

I cut the Pine Needle Trio in Taylored Expressions Sweet Basil cardstock…

I stamped and heat embossed the main image and watercolored with Tombox Dual Brush markers and a #4 Silver Black Velvet watercolor brush.  Links below…. Holly – 177 and 249.  Leaves – 126 and 098.  Berries – 847.

The cardbase is Taylored Expressions Cherry Pop cardstock.

I used Neenah Solar White 110# for all the white.

Back to basics!  This is the kind of stamping I did back in 1994 when I started making cards!  Makes me smile… back then we could only wish for punches that weren’t stars, hearts or circles! lol  Now look at all we have!!!

Craft away everyone and I’ll be back with more fabulous from the Memory Box/poppystamps release!  Thank you for clicking over!

Here’s what I used to make this card!

Starlitstudio.net has the release in stock and as always, super, super fast shipping and awesome prices!  Simon Says Stamp has their $5 off code again CZY444 Good Oct 1 – Nov 20
