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!

Simon Says Stamp Magnolia Branches Embossing Folder…

Hi everyone!  I was trying for a vintage look with this NEW embossing folder… it turned out pretty and feminine!

This folder is from the NEW Born to Sparkle release

It’s easy to get a variety of ‘looks’ with this folder!

Using a piece of Memory Box watercolor cardstock in the folder, I ran it through the Big Shot.

Then using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and a blender brush, I lightly inked over the entire surface of the panel.

I liked it plain but finally decided to add some color with a palette of chalks.  I don’t know if they even make them anymore! 

I tied on some thin jute cord…

I die cut the Memory Box Thank You Posh Script die, added mounting tape to the back, distressed the edges of the panel with the Tim Holtz Distress Edge tool, inked around the edges and adhered it to a cardbase.

I used natural color Neenah cardstock for the thank you die and the cardbase. 

It should’ve been a fast card but since it was an indecisive day… lol   It’s important to be happy with the card when done though, so I persevered!  lol

Linking up my card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Check out the new release!  I bought a couple more things from it that I need to make up!  I’m running out of May though! lol

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! ❤

Cottage Cutz Gnome Sleeping in Hammock Card…

Hi everyone!  Something a little different this week…a sleepyhead!  A cute sleepyhead though!

I die cut this Gnome Sleeping in Hammock from Cottage Cutz, all in Neenah 110# white cardstock and colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers.  Easy coloring and I didn’t have to find cardstock scraps to die cut all the little pieces.  The only drawback is, you aren’t helping to use up your scraps stash! ho ho

Thinking about a sentiment… I grabbed a new set from My Favorite Things and used one of the sentiments.  I’m not sure who I’ll send this to!  It’s using that naughty B word that Tim and I didn’t let the girls use when they were growing up!  It was find something to do or I’ll find you something to do! lol

I made a grass stencil with a Memory Box Grass die.  Using a TE ink blending brush and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink, I did the grass.

Using a My Favorite Things cloud stencil, a TE ink blending brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, I did the sky.

This is an A2 size card….blank on the inside so far!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope this little guy made you smile!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows and MFT Spring Gnomes Card…

Truth – You’re a friend like gnome other!  Cardmakers just click!

I’m using the NEW Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows die today from the latest release, ‘All The Feels’….very fun to create three little scenes with the NEW My Favorite Things Spring Gnomes Stamp and die sets too!

I die cut the Windows die and backed it with Memory Box NEW Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  Such gorgeous papers!

The gnome, flowers and grass are die cut in Copic coloring cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Accented with a white Sakura gel pen.

I stamped the sentiments with the Misti stamping tool. On the inside I stamped the ‘I carrot about you so much’ sentiment and added a carrot. ❤

Hope it makes you smile and think Spring!

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!

Simon Says Stamp Botanical Split Background Slimline Card…

Hi everyone! Today’s card I’m using the center section of this new stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s latest NEW release ‘Hello Beautiful’. It’s a cool 6×6 background stamp but it splits into three pieces and you can use it all or just parts!

I started with Strathmore Best Watercolor paper pad, the brown one, taped it down, spritzed with water good and dropped in distress ink pad refill inks. Then I used that camera lens cleaner puffer tool.  I think that’s what it is anyway.  To move the inky water around.

Then I dried it with the heat tool.

After it was good and dry, I used the powder tool on it before I heat embossed the stamp in white on the watercolor background.

Then the question was, what to do with it! lol

I wanted to bring in some color, so I picked a light yellow from my stash.

Heat embossed a couple sentiments on vellum from SSS Sending and Wishing stamp set. Trimmed it down, folded it around the watercolor panel, taped it on the back, die cut the label and glued it on.  Nothing complicated at all!

I’ll link up what I used below…hopefully they’re all still available!  Have you tried making slimline cards yet?  What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by!

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!

Thank you so much for shopping through my links!  I appreciate it! We all need encouragement these days…I am so thankful for my cardmaking followers, friends and papercrafters.

We’re warming up, the sun is shining! YAY!  I need that and some tea! lol

Memory Box NEW ‘All the Happiness’ Stamp Set…

Hi everyone! It’s time for a NEW release from Memory Box!  So fun for all that love to color and love beautiful lettering!

Today’s card is using the NEW All the Happiness stamp set with two coordinating dies for the florals in the set.

AND there’s *NINE* NEW Memory Box cardstock paper pads!!!  48 6×6 inch sheets. 4 each of 12 shades. Printed on 110lb. cardstock. 6 x 6 inches. So awesome!

I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink, watercolored with regular Distress Ink, Victorian Velvet and Rustic Wilderness and shaded with Caran ‘dAche dark Carmine and black colored pencils.

Heat embossed the sentiment with black pigment ink and black embossing powder.

For the frame I die cut the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles largest die, then to make it a frame I used one of the dies from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics Set to cut the center out.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ve been helping grands with Valentines… so fun. I need to make some for them!  I drank tea too late yesterday so I’m propping my eyelids open today. haha  Not responsible for spelling and sentence structure today!

Memory Box Birthday Rose Corner Shape Card…

Hi everyone! I’ve been coloring with Distress ink refills and water again.  So fun… I stamped on watercolor paper…MB has watercolor paper now and I keep forgetting to use it!  I have to remember!

I die cut with the coordinating die… then I partial cut into the front of my card base so it’d be a shape card of sorts!

Here’s a look at the inside so you can see.

I stamped the Happy Birthday from the new poppystamps Friendship and Kindness stamp set.  This happy birthday is part of a larger sentiment but I cut it apart.  just make one cut and so you can fit them back together precisely.

I love how this looks in real life when you open it.

I used Peeled Paint and a teeny bit of Pine Needles,  Milled Lavender and a teeny bit of Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet is the pink,  Antique Linen and Vintage Photo for the roses and berries.

I spattered with gold paint. The cardstock is Taylored Expressions Pink Champagne… I’ll link it up below.

An A7 size card that’s light and flat and will mail for one stamp!  YAY!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy stamp shopping… so many NEW good ones to color!  Beautiful dies, embossing folders, washi tape and pattern paper too!  oh my!  hehe
