Memory Box Ocean Collage Interactive Mini Slimline Shadowbox Card…

Hi everyone!  “water you up to?”  A very wet week and now for some sunshine and a water card! YAY!

I had to show you the inside first… I love how it turned out! lol

The front…

It’s like a book style, shadow box, interactive, slim line size, dimensional card!  3 ½ x 6 inches but it’s really a box that you’ll see in my little short video below.  I wish I knew how to keep the resolution so the quality was still here when I upload.  There must be some trick! I’m not ambitious enough to take the time to learn.  I’d rather make cards! You can smash it to mail it… It’ll probably need the 2 oz postage stamp.

I used a bunch of the new dies from Memory Box,  Distress Oxide Ink pads for all the coloring and Taylored Expressions ink blender brushes.  So fun… I like coloring dies this way.  I hope you can see that I added some white pigment ink/Sugar Cube from Taylored Expressions,  down the centers of the front background piece and the inside background piece… like there’s some light glowing in.

I spattered with water.  After it dried I spattered with some white watercolor paint.

I forgot to add some of the new Memory Box Fairy Drop Clear Domed adhesive embellishments!  They would’ve been a really cool!  Check them out HERE!

I got carried away with pictures… I cut out two though! lol

To make this, I added 1 ½  inch to my card base measurement, then scored so I would have  ½ inch for the spine and the ½ inch piece to glue my top panel to and a ½ inch for the side.  You can kinda see the white in the picture above…bottom right corner.  I did have to trim out some of it so the white didn’t show behind the bubbles and curves.  If you made this A2 size, you probably wouldn’t need to do that.

The two inside pieces I made/cut a scant 3 ½ in plus an ⅛ in for both sides so be sure to add a ¼ in to whatever size you make your card.

The top panel is only scored on the left side to glue to the spine.  The right side glues to the top ½ inch of the cardbase.

Sorry, I’m one of those wing it card makers that can figure out stuff as I go.  Hope you can figure it out too!

Linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge… Use Dies and/or Punches

poppystamps Whittle Collection Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have five little cards to show you today!  I had some fun this week making 4 Bar size cards… they’re 3 ⅜ in. x 4 ⅞ in.!  I’m a little worried the size will show correctly in the pictures so I wanted you to know right up front!  I’m afraid they’ll look bigger in the pictures than they actually are in real life!

I used all new dies and stamps from the latest release.

This one I had fun with the Whittle Fish Trio die, Word Balloons die and Whittle Sealife Sentiments.  I embellished it just a touch with the sea weed (not sure what they are) from the new Memory Box Deepwater Collage die.

I also used the new Memory Box cardstock pads.  I will link them below.

My husband and grandsons like to fish so I’m sure this will be a hit!

Isn’t this Dolphin cute?

I used Whittle Dolphin, Whittle Sunshine, Whittle Wave Background and sentiment from Whittle Sealife Sentiments.

I like using dies to cut out the sentiment strip.  For this one I used the smallest, narrow die from the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set.  I just run it back through to die cut the very end to get the right length.

I used Oxide inks on the doplhin and sunshine.  The new Memory Box cardstock pad for the background.

I made this card first and it got me going on this size!

Whittle Sealife Sentiment stamps again…so fun!  I love this sentiment!  My sea comes from a bottle or fruit though! lol

I used the Whittle Seahorse and Whittle Seascape Background dies for this card.

I see I saved this picture a different size…oops… oh well, I think you can still see how cute it is!

I inked the background with Speckled Egg distress oxide ink and the seahorse with my brown oxide blending brush.  I imagine it had vintage photo on it.  I have a set of Taylored Expressions blending brushes I use for the Distress Oxide inks.  I really, really like how they work for this kind of thing.

The next two cards don’t really coordinate with the first three. I didn’t have time to make more cards so there’d be sets yet, so be watching for more, I have some ideas!

Here I used Playful Happy Birthday and Whittle Snails! The sentiment is is ‘snail mail for you’ but I figured, why not use a snail instead of the word! hehe  It’s from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments.  Super, super fun sentiments in this set!

The cardstock I used is from the new Memory Box Cardstock pads again…love these pads!  Oh and NEW gems! Links below.

I’m welcoming the ladies to the blog today!  I like their advice! lol

Cute little Whittle Chickens, Whittle Wood Picture Frames, Word Balloons dies and more sentiments from the Whittle Wild Animals stamp set.

Memory Box has new woodgrain cardstock in light brown, cream and white!  I’ll link below.  I inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and spattered with a little water.

I hope I didn’t miss telling you anything but if I did, feel free to ask me!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn On the Beach Birthday Card….

It’s Friday and somebody’s birthday somewhere! haha  This card was for a grandson that has a hammock in the backyard and loves it!  As close to a beach as you can get in Iowa! lol

Some faux sand and water on this card but the sky is real! We’ve had some beautiful blue skies the last month.   I inked them all with Distress Oxide inks.  I haven’t figured out the trick to doing spatters over oxide inks, to keep the spatters smallish.  I even let the ink dry before I spattered.   The kinda black spots were Hero Arts liquid watercolor paint, I’ll have to try something else for black next time. If you have a good black method, let me know!  Holler if you want to know what colors I used and I”ll try to remember.

So fun… the ‘shades’!

Here’s what I used… shopping links in the right sidebar if you want to look for these products at Scrapbook.com (15% off cardmaking supplies today) or Simon Says Stamp.  Thank you!  I appreciate it!  I have stamp club today and I’m almost ready…I made some card kits for the gals to make up.  It’ll be fun but there went my time! hehe

It feels good to be using some of the stash!  So I challenge you to make a card with your stash before you go shopping!  I have two more birthday cards to show and I’m working on a poppystamps Christmas card!  It’s really turning out cool, if I do say so myself so stay tuned! ttul!

Boy Birthday Card with Lawn Fawn’s Pivot Pop Up Die and Waffleflower Batter Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Back with another boy birthday card!  I saw the idea for this card on a fb group.  I bought a cut file from the Silhouette store for the front.  I cut it on my Scan and Cut machine.

I used a combination of Waffleflower stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiments.  The cute ball players are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

The pivot pop up card mechanism die is from Lawn Fawn.

 

The cloud is the smaller of the Memory Box Marshmallow cloud set.  The hill border from Lawn Fawn.

I’ve always loved silhouettes… so fun to be able to cut my own!

A couple more inside shots and then a video of how it works….

These pattern papers are from my stash.  Oldies but perfect for this, from Lasting Impressions for Paper.

 

 

 

Linking up to the SSS Wednesday Moving Parts Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Summer card!  It was a shame the boys didn’t get to play this year.  I’ll link up what I used below.

Lawn Fawn Fishing Birthday Card…

Happy Summer Monday to you!  Family birthday card show and tell time again!

This one is for a boy that loves to fish and pretty much most things outdoors!  Lawn Fawn stamps and dies except for the cattails… they’re from Hello Bluebird.

I inked the mountains with Espresso oxide ink and barely on the dirt borders.  The pond is die cut from white and inked with Peacock Feathers I think.   The sky is a Rosie’s Roadshow cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.

Here’s what I used…

5 Memory Box Die Cards….

I’ve been working on cards!  This is a long post so keep scrolling!  

I wanted to make something cool with this NEW Leafy Tree die… it looks Summery anyway!  I also used the NEW Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set… I like it a lot!  I die cut the Leafty Tree Frame in TE Peapod cardstock and colored the tree trunk with a dark brown Copic Sketch Marker!  It covers the green really well!

The sentiment is from the NEW poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.  So many good sentiments in this set.  I’m going to get a lot of use out of it.

I love how the leaves can be embossed with this Leafy Tree Frame die and then inked with a little stamp pad ink.  I used TE Peapod ink to match the cardstock. The background is Tumbled Glass Oxide ink brushed on to a Toffee/kraft piece of cardstock…same as the card front. I like the look it gave as compared to using it on white.

 

The next card…same dies… but I cut the Leafy Tree Frame in Brown, then in a scrap of green and trimmed off the frame and trunk parts..

Sentiment from the same poppystamps set…

 

Next I played with the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle…

This card is greener IRL… the pictures turned out more blue… it looks ‘beachy’ here! lol  I think I might have to switch back to east windows for Summer pictures.

I used the NEW Stylish Rectangle Trio die and the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle for this card and inlaid them both in the card panel that I pieced together with three Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstocks, HERE

The happy die was new last year… then some enamel dots and why did this card take me hours! lol   I guess that’s pretty normal around here. lol


Next two cards I used the same Birthday circle die, just cut it out from the frame but one is the NEW pattern paper pad Garden Folly, HERE and the other TE cardstocks.  I used the NEW Scribble Rose Trio and Background die also.

 

I’m not sure about these colors at all!  I debated even showing the card! lol  But here it goes.

I used TE Dijon and Peapod cardstocks and ink pads  I know…interesting! lol  Taylored Expressions has been so good to tell us what Copic markers match their ink pads and cardstock too!  So I colored the die cut with matching Copics!

Oh, I used the NEW Gracious Leaves 3D Embossing folder too!  It’s really pretty made up and inked for accent.

This card I cut a circle from the embossed panel and mounted it to the card base with foam mounting tape.  The Rose Trio die is recessed a little then… I really like how it looks. The word ‘wishes’ is from the  Big and Little Words clear stamp set

I’m gonna stop now before your eyes cross from this crazy variety of cards! lol

Thank you so much for stopping by and scrolling forever!  I appreciate it and hope I made you smile!

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

MFT Hop, Flip and a Jump Interactive Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a birthday card for one of our grandsons that just turned 7 the end of September.  He’s a tramp lovin’ boy for sure and can run like the wind!

I used some newer My Favorite Things stamps and dies… perfect for our grands who all love the tramp.  I had a $25 gift certificate that I’d won on a challenge that helped me buy the awesome Interactive Up Down Die set!  We’ll need to use it a lot!

I followed the MFT Design Team gal Laura’s instructional video on how to do it.  I reinforced the mechanism by gluing 3 die cuts together though, it really needed the strength!  I haven’t asked but I’m hoping it’s still working on the card! hehe

Super cute and easy to color!  I was so happy with how it turned out!  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut the images out with the Scan and Cut 350, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. There are coordinating dies, I’ll link them up below.

Then it was just assemble like Laura’s video! You can find it on the MFT You Tube Channel. Here’s my video of it in action! Click HERE to see it BIG… much better on the You Tube channel.

It’s an A2 size card…

Lawn Fawn Beam Me Up (aliens) Slider Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  I have a cute card for you today!  This alien has landed at the farm and demands cake!  This card was for our grandson Cedryk’s 7th birthday.  He loved it!

Pull the tab at the top up and the cake rises into the space ship!  I have a little video showing how it goes.  If you pull the tab out, it’s no problem, just stick it back in and the cake will stick to it again.  The cake piece comes off the card.  Really cute and so fun!

On You Tube HERE

 I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I inked the grass in the front with Distress oxide inks.

The characters are from the Lawn Fawn Beam Me Up stamps and die set.  The farm background is from a clear set by Miss Ink Stamps.  I’ll link them up below…

A weird angle to see that I glued the piece of die cut vellum to the bottom of the spaceship.

A little closer to see the cake behind the vellum…

Have you ever seen cuter aliens? haha  They seem to like birthday parties! lol And they bring presents!  Gotta love that! haha

The inspiration for the slider is from a video I saw on Simon Says Stamp blog HERE.

I stamped the sentiments on black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed them with Lawn Fawn White embossing powder.  I used the MISTI Cut Align Ruler to cut the strips.  So far I like it a lot!

Glue on the googly eyes and we’re ready to land!

A Lawn Fawn I Scream, You Scream, Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  I should be doing housework but here I am writing a post because I’m behind getting birthday cards posted and it’s time for new things!  ok – I wonder when there aren’t new things in this papercrafting industry!

Here’s a card for one of our grands that just turned 13!

I was inspired by Nancy’s card here. I don’t have the pattern paper but otherwise, I just plain copied her… such an awesome design!

I used oxide inks on Bristol Smooth card, some water splatters, die cutting and gluing… very straight forward!

I ended up with several photos so I’ll just post away…

So happy with the color combo… I think you could use any Summer colors though for this!

You are so cool, pretty much sums it up!

So go get inky!  lol

I’m going to link up to some challenges!

Memory Box Underwater Scene Birthday Card…

Aren’t these fish cute?! lol  Compared to the real thing, I’ll take paper fish any day!

I love this intricate frame from the Sailboat Frame set too… I didn’t have any trouble cutting any of these.

TIP: I do cut with the cutting blades of the dies facing up…try it if you have any trouble cutting your intricate dies. Be sure to angle your dies into your machine too.  Eliminate the ‘speed bump’.

I layered/glued together 3 of the Underwater Scene.  The fish are one layer but adhered with foam mounting tape.

In the background you’ll see I inlaid the Family of Fish die… fun look I thought…almost looks like a net but I like it a lot!  (Even better in person)

I inkblended with Gather Twigs and the mini ink blending tool on the circle and the fish.

This photo shows the levels a little better. A2 size…it’s not thick, it will mail for one forever postage stamp! yay!

Linking to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – add a die cut

August Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies

Scrapyland – anything goes with dies they sell

I’ll link to what I used below my name and thank you so much for stopping by and if you shop or comment, I thank you extra for that!  I appreciate it!

Spellbinders August Small Die of the Month Club Card….

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with the NEW Spellbinders Small Die club of the month kit…all the dies for this come in the kit for one low price!  Super cute too!

I got to thinking…that slit!  What a cute money holder!  So I added 5 bucks to my photos. hehe

Sometimes the stash of old stuff really comes in handy…so glad I still have a couple packages of these old Basic Grey magnets. I’ll try to find some others to link up below.


I used TE cardstock and Lawn Fawn pattern paper for the accent papers on the backpack. Lawn Fawn ink to edge the backpack pieces and crayons.

The zipper and glasses are silver foil/mirror cardstock.

I even had a piece of old history outline paper!  I taped it to a piece of white cardstock because it’s so thin.

I took some more photos with a black background…just to make it hard for me to decide what to post!  urrrrgghhh haha  So just posting both flat and standing up pics today!

It’s an A2 size card and will mail for one forever stamp too! yay!

There’s another sentiment in the set too… You Rule…so cute…subscription price is just $12.50 a month!  Details HERE and how it works info. Be sure to check out all the clubs while you’re there.

One last photo…so many fun details and very easy to make.  I think this can be customized for any age too!

 

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box Daisy Flower Frame Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! There’s just something about a daisy that makes a gal happy! I kept this simple but the black and bits of color make it so sweet!

I die cut the frame three times and glued them together.

I embossed a white cardstock panel with the frame die, multi purpose platform and tan mat. That makes it easy for placement and gluing the frames over the top. Just take away the top tab of the platform when you run the die through the Big Shot to emboss.

I used scraps of Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock for the leaves and a scrap of TE Lemon Meringue for the flower centers.

I heat embossed the sentiment from poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set on TE Oreo cardstock.  TIP: When you’re white heat embossing on black, the cardstock really matters. TE and Bazzill work the best of the ones I’ve tried so far.  On others, the powder like soaks into the cardstock and it’s not white anymore! ugh

I embellished the card with the 3 butterflies from the Memory Box Butterfly Trio die.

Then I die cut the largest die in the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames two times, glued them together and glued them directly to the card panel.

A cherry birthday card with a little feminine touch!

Thank you for stopping by!  Links below to the products I used. Happy cardmaking!

Simon Says Stamp Believe In You Release Cards…

Hello!  I have two cards to share with you using a new die, Today Will Be Awesome, from Simon Says Stamp’s new release, Believe In You. Check out the release!  It’s huge and lots of beautiful stamps and dies!

I’m also using their Nautical Stripe Stencil that was new with their last release.  Here I used it straight up and down on Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock, inkblending on Cookie Monster ink with a mini ink blending tool. I love the tone on tone look!

I die cut the stenciled panel with a Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.

I die cut the new die in TE’s Toffee cardstock and since it’s thicker the letters stayed in the cut.  Then I die cut it in Cookie Monster and glued the letters over the Toffee die cut.  Easy placement that way..

The die comes with a rectangle die to back it too… that’s handy. I cut it from TE’s Confetti Cake cardstock.

I embellished with the Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background die cut from TE’s Granny Smith cardstock and a few Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles.

For some reason I really like how this turned out! lol  It’s not like me to have such a contrast of colors!

My next card…

Same die and stencil, I just did the stencil diagonal both directions, with Lawn Fawn Merman and Cilantro inks and Confetti Cake and Granny Smith cardstocks.

I used the next size down of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies and added the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline die to the leaves this time.

I like this one too.  I should mail them! Imagine that! lol

oh and here’s a picture of a couple backgrounds I made last month with this stencil but didn’t get anything made up.  Too bad, they would’ve been great patriotic cards!  So the stencil, 3 different ways!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate it and always hope you enjoy and are inspired by my cards!

Hello Bluebird Maverick Birthday Card and New Simon Says Stamp Release!

So this cute little pup found an old army plane. hehe   Mercy this stamp set is CUTE!  I had fun making this card for our grandson Corrin… 10th birthday for him already!  Man, these kids grow up fast!

I die cut in white…stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black in the MISTI or TH Platform, can’t remember which… I use them both all the time… and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

A TIP for you if you buy this Sunshine background die…emboss the die on a panel so you have something to go by for placement.  This is a die that all falls apart when you die cut it.  So like a puzzle, you need the impression in a panel so you know how to put it back together, like a puzzle!

The Sun and rays are ink blended with Oxide inks. The edges of the clouds with regular Distress ink.

A little white gel pen and the sun and bottom cloud layer are mounted with foam tape.

A fun message on the inside…

Before I sign off… I’ll be back tomorrow with my cards for this new Simon Says Stamp release but I wanted to go ahead and link it up today in case you haven’t seen it yet! 😀

Some neat things for every kind of card you might need this time of year! New stamps and dies… dies to go with previously released stamp sets too!  So check it out!

Then… there’s THIS!  CHRISTMAS IN JULY at Scrapbook.com!!!  Through July 29th… details HERE

and here’s what I used to make this cute Maverick card!

Thanks for stopping by!
