CAS card and Clearance SALE @ Startlitstudio!

Happy day after Valentines Day to you!  Hope you enjoyed some sunshine like we did here!

Here’s a quick card I made yesterday morning before our area stamp club in the afternoon. Just a phone picture but I decided to go ahead and post it because I really like it! lol  And I’m grateful for my friends here and wanted to share that too! 😀

Then I checked email and saw that Cindy @ Starlitstudio.net has added a lot to her clearance section!  Hurry and check it out!

Here’s some cards with dies that are part of the clearance…

3 Memory Box Nautical Cards…

Hi everyone!  hey, the sentiment on this card works for me and blogging too! hehe  I’m still here!  I got caught up on a house project and wouldn’t you know, it took longer than I thought!  I have a list of those projects. ugh.  Sure feels good when you get something accomplished though!

Hang with me today…keep scrolling…3 cards to share with you!

I really love this anchor frame!  It’s so intricate and so fun in any color! It’s a new Memory Box die called Sailboat Frame.  When you get down to my 3rd card, I used the Sailboat part of the set too.

Here it’s very basic…well all three are pretty basic….adding the kraft color rope frame was genius though.  I was stuck at what it needed and bam it hit me.  Oh, I’m so thankful when that happens, otherwise something can sit on my desk forever!

I wanted to use the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die again and thought it went so well with the frame.  I used a Memory Box Circle Basics die to cut out the Lighthouse Collage.

The sentiments on all three of my cards today are from the new Memory Box Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments stamp set.

I added the Memory Box Flying Gulls in the background, glued directly to the card.  The lighthouse and the circle part of the frame have mounting tape behind them. Nothing under the points/corners.

 

I actually started with this card, didn’t finish it, made the 3rd card, then made the blue card and finally made it back to this CAS white on navy blue card!

I used the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die and the wood dock pieces from the Memory Box Beachfront Seagulls die.  I love the detail on the wood.  I die cut, leave the pieces in the die and rub over the backside of the card-stock with a stylus so the embossing detail from the die is more pronounced.  Then I ink it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool. Love that wood detail!

I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die, matted it on an A2 size navy blue panel and then on an A2 white card-base.

 

And here’s #3!  I used pattern paper. Rather playful, don’t you think?!  This is October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad.  Starlitstudio.net has a few pieces left in the store HERE from the 12 x 12 collection. Otherwise it is discontinued.  I’m sure if you’re like me, you have something in your stash that would be fun for something like this!  😀

The Sailboat Frame die set, using all the pieces this time, super cute sailboat, waves and clouds!  I love the frame die cut in this red wood paper! I die cut the greenish square mat with the Memory Box Square Basics die set.

I love that you get so many sizes with these Basics Shapes die sets and they work with all the Memory Box dies.

I’ll stop at 3 cards today!  eek! lol  Hope you had fun scrolling through and if you’re a lighthouse, beach, water person, you’re sure to find tons to love from Memory Box!

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box Grand Maple Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m sneaking in a Fall card today!  Last Friday our area stamp club had a card party and this is the card I had the gals make. I have the instructions all typed up if you want to email me, I can email them to you. It was a super fun day…there were 12 of us.  I still need to finish a couple of the cards!

This really isn’t complicated to make at all, you just have to remember to put the glue in the right places! Ask me how I know! lol

The NEW Memory Box Grand Maple Frame die is gorgeous! I love how it made up in this Circle Gatefold Type card…kind of interactive…

I die cut the center leaf/circle die in 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock and blended on 3 Distress Oxide ink pad colors, Forest Moss, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey. I tried using watercolor paper for this but the spatters seemed to spread too much on it so I went back to regular cardstock.  The spatters are a drop of Gathered Twigs regular Distress ink mixed with a few drops of water and spattered on with a paintbrush.

Adhere the leaf/circle to a matching size Circle Basics die cut from coordinating green cardstock.

The card base is a 4 ¼ in. x 8 ½ in., scored at 2 ⅛ in. in from the length ends. Fold on the scores and crease well.

Cut two of the Frame die and sandwich them in the left ‘gate’ of the card with liquid glue.

Adhere the finished leaf/circle to the right ‘gate’ of the card.

 

On the inside I stamped two sentiment stamps from the poppystamps Autumn Fairies stamp set using Ranger Archival Black ink and the MISTI stamping tool.

This card brought back memories.  Remember years ago when Magenta came out with all the circle and square frame stamps?  We were head over heels for them!  There were several different folds we did with those stamps and this fold was one.  Such a fun presentation!

Memory Box Be Jolly and Alphine Trees Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Look at this cute bunny from the new Memory Box Be Jolly stamp set. I had fun with it and am looking forward to using the rest of the set and the other new set… a great size for coloring!

I love all the nature dies from Memory Box but I might have to say that this Alpine Trees dies is one of my very favorites of the trees!  I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite, favorite though! lol

I colored with the Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set for the first time.  I like it!  Even spattered with the white paint in the set and that paint brush I was telling out about in my post before this one.  I did mix a couple greens to get that tree color, oh and a blue and green to get the water, scarf and present colors.  Rather fun and easy to use.

The sentiment is from the set and I stamped it with the MISTI and Ranger Black Archival ink… Happy with this sweet scene!

Linking up to some challenges…
