Memory Box Snowy Forest 3D Embossing Folder…

I have two cards to share with you after playing around with this folder a couple days.  It’s very pretty!  I will show you the sparkly pics I took with my phone first! 😀

I inked the raised sky side with teal ink on this first one…after embossing I sprayed both cards with Sparkle spray.  Can you say shimmery?!

This one I inked with brown first, then green on the side where the trees are raised.  Pretty cool… it’s tricky keeping the ink off where you don’t want it but what I finally ended up doing was using a white Posca pen over the ink marks, letting it dry before I sprayed it with Sparkle spray and then the vellum heat embossed gold sentiment over the top… disguised and pretty!

Here’s some more pictures…I took too many…lol

Weird how the color changes laying down… same exact location as the standing up pictures!

Truly CAS cards after getting the hang of what you want the result to be.  It just dawned on me that I didn’t make a plain ole white one!  Oh… I will have to do that! Sprayed with Sparkle or Frost spray, it’ll be gorgeous!  YAY!  Easier yet! haha

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I feel like a fish out of water here.  Not keeping up with anything.  My heart is with all my friends out there and know I think about you and I am emailing you in my head and so thankful for you all!  Back to shopping… it’s fun this year…our older grands have ideas so it’s serious shopping and challenging!  More education for grandma and grandpa! lol

ttul!

Here’s some links to what I used to make these two Winter wonderland cards!

Printworks Collection LE Snowman Sweet Jill, new release and free shipping!

Hi everyone!  We’re warm here today…talk about extremes in Iowa…we have that with temperatures for sure!  The snow ppl population would all be extinct here this week! lol

Fortunately Printworks has tons of snowmen for us to stamp and color!  AND a special running right now (through the 28th) with free shipping when you order $30 or more!  BE SURE to use code “PAM5” in the comment section of your order for 5% off.

Here’s some more pictures of Sweet Jill

I stamped her with Ranger Archival Black ink and watercolored her with Prima Tropical watercolor set.  I only have one of these sets but what fun colors!

A poppystamps snowflake die cut in white and painted with the same paints. A hot pink Doodlebug Sprinkle enamel dot  and washi tape to finish it off.

On the inside I used the new stamp Warmest Winter Wishes…I meant to take a picture of the inside but I forgot. ugh.  Here’s the stamp image though and I used the other two poppystamps snowflakes from the die set on the inside too.

 

Fun to get some coloring in today…I keep jumping in on the daily marker 30 day coloring challenge when I can.  Need that colorbook therapy now and then you know! hehe

Printworks Collection New Friendship Release …

Hi everyone!  I’ve been making Christmas cards for Printworks!  Now I get to show them to you!  If you want to see them all at once, you can, here, here and hereThere are some of my Thanksgiving cards from years past here.

This cute little kitten is called Morris Kitty… isn’t he cute! The convertible is called Muggles Morris!

Well, I just had to make them up Christmas like!  All kittens carry around mistletoe in a convertible at Christmas don’t they?! hoho  They do on cards anyway!

Such cute sentiments too!

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Shoot me now, I didn’t write the numbers down.  I always think I’ll remember!  What!  I rarely remember. ugh.

I die cut the panel with one of Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangle dies and the kraft panel with one of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies.

Funny what you see in pictures and too late!  The cards are already winging their way to be at the convention in California in November.  If you’re going, be sure to stop by the Printworks Collection booth!   Anyway,  I missed coloring the heart in red!  😀

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

Printworks Collection 2016 LE Snowman, Little Rascals…

pam-sparks-le-snowman-2016-vs2

Could this pair be any cuter?  The ‘snow play‘ sentiment fits the image to a ‘t’!  This is the NEW 2016 Limited Edition Snowman from Printworks Collection.  Part of their latest release which includes more snowmen and wonderful Winter/Snow sentiments. You just can’t get any cuter than Annette’s super cute snowmen!

I stamped the snowflake stamp in the background on Strathmore 140# Mixed Media Card-stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Distress ink pads and the ink blending tools blend wonderfully on this Mixed Media card-stock. I blended over the embossed snowflakes with a couple different blues and spattered some blue ink and then white with a paintbrush.

I painted/colored the snowman and pup with a combination of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and Distress Inks. Stamped on watercolor paper with Ranger Archival Black ink and cut out by hand.

The snow border is a new poppystamps die, Dotted Curve.

Wow, the last few weeks…where did they go?!  I’ve been making cards, just can’t show them! waaahhh   In the meantime, my camera just up and quit one morning!  Did you hear me scream? A new camera was not on my radar! If you know me, you know I like to research and develop so to speak. lol

Yes, I lost sleep! Thanks to a generous husband, a very knowledgeable friend and a great salesman at the camera store I have a new camera and now if the sun would just shine…. hehe   I’ll figure it out!  I have to! lol

Tomorrow is our area stamp club so I’m going to escape from home for a few hours.  I am probably the only person that still hasn’t taken their Christmas tree down.  I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get a fake tree!  Quit laughing at me!  haha  I’ve been very busy! lol

I’ve missed coming here and chatting through comments.  I always appreciate hearing from you and thank you so much to those that sent me Christmas cards!  I LOVED them all!

I’ll be back!
