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

Spring Birthday Card with Distress Ink Coloring…

It’s been some time since I colored with Distress Ink Pad Refills.  I got the notion last week or was it the week before?!  ugh… time gets away from me.  Anyway, I finally finished her over the weekend and finally got some pictures taken to post.

The image is from hÄnglar Wings in Sweden. The stamps I own are unmounted rubber but they do have clear stamps now also!  So cute! I stamped her with Ranger Archival ink on Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper.

I color skin with Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo.  Her coat and hat are PIcked Raspberry and Dusty Concord.  Her jeans are Faded Jeans.  Her hair is Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

I used a Hello Bluebird die for the tree background.  The grass die is from Lawn Fawn.  The little leaves are from an old CC Designs die that I cut up and glued on.

The sentiments are from Taylored Expressions Sentiment Strip stamps and die system.  Pretty cool and fun messages!

I hope she makes you smile!  Thanks for stopping by!

3 Letterboard Cards…

Hi everyone!  Did you see the Splitcoast Stampers recent email talking about Letterboard cards? oh, I keep calling them this but I think the email called them Marque cards. Here’s the tutorial!

My first one is a birthday card for our oldest grandson.  I used an old alphabet die set from Quickutz called Diesel.  The birthday wishes postal circle is from Inkadinkado.

I will link up a bunch of alternative, similar alphabet die sets in my linkdeli collection at the end of the post.  They would all make awesome cards like this too!

This one is ¼ of an inch taller than a regular A2 card.  I mailed it in an A7 envelope.

The little bit of coloring is with Copics.

The next one is the card I made for Tim/husband.  Four family birthdays in January! Two more to go! hehe

This one I used a different alphabet.  It’s Parker from Memory Box. (my link below is to Parker lower case, upper isn’t available anymore)  The little candle is from a Quickutz die set and the heart was on my desk.

I scored lines this time with my scor-pal instead of making ¼ inch strips and foam mounting tape like I did for the others.

Harder to see the scored lines in that picture…

There you can see them again.  This card is A2 size and the cardbase is Cookie Monster cardstock from Taylored Expressions.

Glossy Accents on the candle and heart.

My third cards are thank yous!  I need several right now!  ❤

I really had fun with this card style… but I quit for now because I need to do other stuff! lol

This is Quickutz Diesel alphabet again.  The heart is from Honeybee Stamps.

The red and black cardstocks are from Taylored Expressions also.  The envelopes I made for these is a digital cut from Kerri Bradford.com.  I cut them on the Scan and Cut cm350.   I’ve been experimenting to use it more!  yay!  It’s like a coin envelope style… I should’ve taken a better picture of just the envelopes.  You can find it HERE.

A2 size and I used two Pool notecards from Memory Box for the card bases.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ll be back real soon with another Reverse Confetti card, then more Memory Box and poppystamps coming your way! Hope the new year is finding you with time to make.  I can’t believe this month is almost history!  :O

$5 off code for SSS right now is LVEYU842  (good ’til 3/1)

Then there’s a grrreat sale at Taylored Expressions!  You know I love their cardstock and I received the blending brushes for Christmas!!!  Link below and get the brushes, caddy and cleaning tool now while they are 30% off!!!  (hmmm, do I need another set?!) lol Sale today, 9 a.m. CST the 23rd through tomorrow 9 a.m. CST the 24th!  HURRY!  😀

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!

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!

Masculine Birthday with Taylored Expressions BBQ Grill…

We’ve had a series of birthdays again in the family.  Here I was inspired by a buffalo plaid card I saw out there in card land.  I know, super simple but I like it!  Pretty self explanatory!

You could easy add to it.  Below, I linked up the BBQ tools too.

I used the Cut Align Rulers set from My Sweet Petunia to cut the Happy Birthday saying.  I do like them but I’m fairly savvy with a craft knife. I can cut a straight line a long a ruler! lol

Well, thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back with more birthday soon!

Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club Cards…

Hi everyone! I’ve been working on these two cards this week using the NEW Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club set. (link at the bottom of this post)

Two kinds of stained glass/quilt looking cards!


In the June kit there are three sets of dies that stack/coordinate.  A hexagon set, a circle set and a fan looking set. All for a great deal!

I used one layer of the hexagon set for this first card. I die cut a lot of the black one (popped out the waste), then I die cut two of each color cardstock from Taylored Expressions, linked below, all from the same die. The color ones held together well so that made it easy to tape the back (to hole the pieces in) and then glue the black cut on top.

This ended up a ‘Hallmark’ size card.  If I was doing it again, I would cut the panel in half and make two cards! 😀

The ‘For You’ sentiment die cut is from the Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons die set.

 

My next card is using the circles from the club set.

I lined up the 3 circle dies in a row on top of an A2 card size panel.  Taped them in place with removable tape and die cut…repeated it for the next row.  It worked slick.  I didn’t even measure this time. eek! lol   I had six holes in the panel then.

I used mounting tape on the back of the panel and adhered it to a TE Granny Smith A2 size panel so that color would show through when I pieced in the circles.

I die cut the 3 circle dies from white and Taylored Expressions color cardstock. Adhered them together and glued them into the holes in the panel.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and the MISTI tool.  I cut out the word sympathy with the MISTI Cut Align ruler.

I hope I didn’t make it sound complicated because it’s just a matter of cutting enough pieces, after you decide what colors you want to use, gluing and putting them in place. 😀

I wish you could see them in person… so much better! hehe

Thank you for stopping by and holler if you have any questions!

SSS ‘Celebrate You Release’ Filigree Message Circle Die with MB Flower Dies…

It’s time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp! They sent me their new Filigree Message Circle die to play with.  Kinda fitting since it was designed by Memory Box.

So I set to work and used a couple Memory Box flower dies too!

I used sentiments from the SSS last release, Tiny Words Encouragement clear stamp set. Links below…

I wanted to embellish the circle so I diecut the NEW Memory Box Daisy Silhouette die in white and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

YG17 Matches Taylored Expressions Peapod cardstock perfectly!  I’ll link below.

Here’s a top view because there is dimension to the card! 😀

The top layer is Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock.

A close up…I think this picture captures the sweetness of the card the best! 😀

Next photo, the cards together…a variety of things you can do with this die.  Use your other circle dies to frame it etc. My white die cut panel is popped up to the card base with foam mounting tape and the kraft die cut panel is adhered directly to the card base.

I have this Lawn Fawn Inside Out Circle die set and love how it framed this Filigree Message Circle die.

I wanted to embellish with flowers again and liked the idea of tulips cuz it’s May and tulips are big in the area we live.

This is the Memory Box Springtime Tulips die. I clipped out the tulips and used them without the circle they come with.

A top view… I ink blended the flower parts that come with the die to back the tulips, with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I ink blended the card base with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink.

The leaves are inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.

Winter Scene Bridge Fold Card and two more Valentines…

Good Saturday to you!  This card is perfect for us this week!  A week of beautiful snow!  The glisten-y, sparkly kind!

When I saw these sledder dies at Starlitstudio…I KNEW I HAD to have them! hehe   All things Winter scene need to be mine! haha

I used a variety of companies for this… I’ll link up what I used at the bottom of the post.

The Bridge fold card is so fun…I love how you can use so many dies for the scene and it can be layered up with so much dimension but still FOLD FLAT for mailing!  YES!

Start with the base cut 4 1/4inches by 8 inches.  Score at 1 1/4 inch and 2 1/2 inches from both ends…fold them in how you see them in my pictures.  For the inside layers, I cut them 3 1/2 inches and score each end at 1/4 inch and they fit perfect every time!  I use 1/8 inch score tape to secure them in position.

Holler if you have any question!  😀

Linking up my Winter Bridge card to CAS on Friday Challenge – Dies

Next up a couple Valentines…

I’m getting a lot of mileage out of this Pinpoint Heart die and the Have a Heart die set. Panel cut with the Rectangle Basics die set.

Linking up the heart/music card to Less is More Challenge #364 Music

Thank you ladies!

 

Here I made a little scene with the poppystamps Valentine Fairies stamp set and coordinating die set. I meant to color the blonde with a funky color hair but I forgot!  So used to doing ‘normal’ hair! hehe

Stamped in the MISTI, die cut in the Big Shot and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Bike is R46, the girls are the R0’s.  Memory Box notecards in a couple fun colors, Parsley and Pool!

Colorful Rainbow cards to share today…

Hi everyone!  Two clean and simple cards I made for stamp club last Friday.  Annette had the program and she had rainbow for the theme.  These are the two cards I made…one to swap and one for Annette’s birthday card.

I used the poppystamps paintbrush die, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, a Taylored Expressions brush rubber stamp, You color my world is from a new poppystamps stamp set, inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped with the MISTI.  I stamped the brush stamp with Regular Distress Inks.  I centered the stamp on the lid of the MISTI and moved the card to stamp the different colors.  I did stamp each color two and three times to get the bold color.

Both cards are A2 top folding card bases, almost one layer!

The bike is a new Spellbinders die cut in heavy white card-stock…run it through with the tan mat a second time so it embosses nicely.

The street and the stitched rectangle are from a MFT blueprints die set, the butterflies are an old Marvy punch…sorry I didn’t have time to look for a die but I’ll see if I can find something similar to link to and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Thanks for stopping by on this fine Tuesday!  I’ll be back soon with more of you know what! lol  Have a creative, colorful week!

Window Scene for Inkspirational Challenges…

Hello weekend and friends! I’m delighted to be a guest for this week’s challenge over at Inspirational Challenges. The theme this time is ‘windows’.

A little ink smooshing and die cutting, oh and white heat embossing on black and this card could really be used for a lot of occasions.  I went with belated birthday because that is something I need but rarely have made ahead.

I used Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks for my inky background, just on regular card-stock this time.

I die cut Taylored Expressions In the Garden die from black card-stock three times, layering/gluing them together to get that fun dimensional look we all love.

I layered/taped the smooshed panel to an A2 card-base, Then glued on the black silhouette scene.  I die cut the Memory Box Modern Tile die from white card-stock, then added foam mounting strips on all four sides, on the back and adhered it on the top.

I white embossed the sentiment from Taylored Expressions Some Like it Hot stamp set on a black card-stock strip and glued it on last..

I made two enamel dots with Ranger Caribbean Coast Enamel Accents, let them dry and glued them on the sentiment strip.

Thank you so much to Marina and her team for inviting me to guest design for this post. I enjoy challenges and love participating with the Inkspirational challenges when I can. I hope you will take the window challenge!  Can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

I’m linking my card to some challenges…

A snow-globe kind of birthday card…

pam-sparks-penguins-could-talk

I had fun using some Papertrey Ink dies and Taylored Expressions stamps to make this card.  A Distress ink background with ink spatters…some copic coloring and fussy cutting and it was ready to put together.

pam-sparks-penguins-could-talk-side

A very fun shape card and the first time for me to use this stamp set!  So I’m linking up to Darnell’s NBUS challenge #10!  yay!

The challenge at Stamping Sensations Challenge blog is Animal Magic so I’m linking up there too.

The challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges blog is a card with an animal too…count me in!

Over at Jingle Belles Challenge the theme is ‘let the flakes fall where they may’  So cute!

Here’s a close up…

pam-sparks-penguins-could-talk-flat-close

It could’ve easy been a shaker but I like it a lot this way too!  Just making paper snow this year!  I think the snow is all going north of us. hehe  Sorry northerners!

Thanks for stopping by!  ‘preciate it and no I won’t ask you to go count how many snow-globe stamps and dies you own already. #chuckle

Neat and Tangled Merry Bear Birthday Card…

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day-flat

Look at this adorable little snowman! It’s family birthday time again and our youngest grandson is turning two tomorrow!  Where does the time go?!

I wanted to play in the NBUS challenge with the option of color pencil on kraft.  I love how this almost looks like wood!

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day

I stamped with the MISTI, colored with pencil, then went back and using the MISTI again, I left the stamps where they were, inked with black pigment embossing ink, stamped them and heat embossed them with black powder.

So many times when you color with pencils you lose the strong black line.  We used to do this years ago when Stampa Rosa had the House Mouse stamps. We would stamp them their stamp positioner, color them with Tombow markers and then come back and emboss them over the top of the marker coloring.  Amazing the difference.

Next time I am going to color the image right in the MISTI without moving the card-stock.  There was enough ‘user error’ this time that I had to stamp the bear a few times and ended up with a thicker black line then the stamp really has. grrr   Still cute though!

pam-sparks-charleys-2nd-b-day-close

Hopefully we’ll get some snow for his birthday!  haha  It’s been a weird, rainy Winter for Iowa.  Not used to dark and dreary.  It’s usually bright with snow!  I’m sure we’ll get those Winters again.

Two CAS Christmas cards…

pam-sparks-ha-nativity-cas

Hi everyone! I have to get some posts in while it’s snowing here on the blog! lol Sharing the two cards I had the gals make at our stamp club Christmas party a couple weeks ago.

I stamped the silhouette image and sentiment from Hero Arts in black multiple times with the MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink, then using clear embossing powder I embossed it on a periwinkle color card-stock. The stamp set is, Greatest Gift CL559 if you want to google it.

Then I inked it with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and an ink blending tool.

The pretty Avery Elle pierced postal frame die cut and mounted with strips of craft foam. I covered both sides of a piece of craft foam with Scor-tape and cut it into strips. Thank you Cindy for that technique! It’s awesome!

pam-sparks-snowflake-bkgrd-noel

Here I used a snowflake background and word from Taylored Expressions and Crafter’s Companion watercolor paper. It’s really white. The holly and berries from Reverse Confetti.

Very easy A2 size and flat for mailing cards!  I hope you’re enjoying this creative and busy season!  It is going by way too fast for me! The tree is up and decorated and some of the other decorative things are out. yay!

oh presents…well…we’re working on it! lol

Take care! Thanks for stopping by today!

P.S. I have one TE Christmas Card class kit left if anyone is interested! I’d love to sell it!  Photo and price on the ‘For Sale’ page, a tab under my blog title.
