Winter Garden Release in a Summer Way Card…

Hi everyone!  How fun is this NEW die set called Letterbox from Spellbinders Winter Garden Release!  I made it up in a Winter Scene card too but I think I’ll post it separately because I have so many pictures of this one.

I die cut everything and put them together before I adhered them to a Distress Oxide ink blended A2 size cardbase. I used Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass with a torn piece of copy paper to separate the sky and grass.

I used a NEW die set called Winter Evergreen Foliage behind the Be Bold flowers.

I love these sweet blooms with the mailbox!

The die cut sentiment is from the NEW Mix and Match Holiday Greetings Die set.  I die cut it twice in white cardstock, glued them together and glued them directly to the card.

I used woodgrain cardstock for the post and a matte silver metallic cardstock for the box.

I hope you like this as much as I do!  I’m anxious to show you the Winter version too!  ❤

Sending You Some Vitamin Sea!

Hi everyone! Check out the latest release from Memory Box, ‘June Island Vacation’!  I had fun playing with these products!

I embossed the fish with the NEW Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder, then I used the NEW coordinating Ocean Fish stencil set to color the fish!  It worked great!

I have no idea what colors these fish should be! lol  I used my mug of dye ink blender brushes!  I didn’t add any ink, I just used the ink that was in the brushes and used the green, blue and bluegreen brushes over yellow.  Orange and red together on the other!

The Ocean Fish Folder comes with matching dies, so I die cut the fish after coloring.

For the background piece, I used the Memory Box Underwater 3d embossing folder on white cardstock, then used my Distress Oxide blender brushes to add color.  Again, just the color that was in the brushes.  I guess I was too lazy to get out the ink pads!  Funny girl yesterday! lol

I used mounting tape to mount the fish to the background piece and added some clear Fairy Drops.

The sentiment is heat embossed from the Deep Blue Ocean clear stamp set released last year.  Awesome sentiments and images in this set.  Dies to match too!

I saw Memory Box Dave’s card on the Memory Box website using the Kelp Collage die, also from last year so I used it too!

The last thing I did was add some clear glitter pen to the fish.  I love how it makes it look like shimmery fish!

This will be a fun card to send to someone feeling under the weather.  I love vitamin C anyway… it’s a staple around this house! lol

NEW Memory Box Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Card and a storage tip…

It’s a beautiful day here in south central Iowa! I should’ve been out riding my bike this morning! lol  Do any of you have an e bike? Do you like it?  I’m sure tempted to go look and try one of them.

A clean and simple look to my card today.  I used a champagne colored foil to hot foil the sentiment but it looks black.  Figures.

I  didn’t think to try to catch the light when I was taking pictures but it really is foil! poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil and Cut Die Set.

I used Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles…it’s my go to for cutting panels it seems.  I like it!

I embossed the new 3D folder and die cut the leaves with the included dies, glued them to the white A2 panel except for the top middle leaf, I used the thin mounting tape that I’ll link to below.

I made some pretty little flowers with poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set from the most recent release.  The smallest die cut, cut two times for each flower and layered together and glued in the center directly to the panel.

I used the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers die from the most recent release and made some pretty tropical dragonflies to land on the card!

Straight forward die cutting and gluing…no inking even! BOOM! lol  Two non inked cards in a row!

Tip: The next two pictures are how I decided to store the 3D folders and dies using the packaging that they come in!  I think it’s really slick!

I take the heavyweight clear piece off of the sturdy cardboard backer they come with and cut the top off of the plastic with a scissors so it becomes a slot when you put it back over the cardboard backer and you can slip the folder and the dies in and out of!  No additional plastic sleeve needed for storage! Perfect!

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

poppystamps Grand Whittle Ice Cream Card…

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year when we’re all trying to keep cool! This card makes me smile because Breyers Natural Neapolitan Ice Cream is a favorite around here!

I made this card before I made the flower cards the other day and without even realizing I used strips again! lol   I love how it turned out!

So cute and screams SUMMER!

I’ll link up what I used below…straight forward for the most part.  I made the narrow frame by taping two of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies together.  (I leave them taped together just in case I need to make another before I need them apart!)

I stamped the sentiments then used the sentiment die that comes in the NEW poppystamps Modest Greetings set. 

This last shot is a little too pink… I didn’t try to change it but it’s Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake cardstock, I’ll ink below.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!  I can’t believe it’s almost the 4th of July!  I haven’t made a 4th card yet this year but I love making patriotic cards.  I made a card to share next with Memory Box NEW Release.  Then I have a bunch of birthday cards to share so I hope you don’t get tired of me blasting you with blog posts!  😀

Birch Press Design Tropical Hibiscus and Star Flowers Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Working with new products from Birch Press Designs for my two cards today.  I made a card using them the day before I made these but I didn’t like it so I brought out the strip CAS card design again!  I’ve used it before HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Two for one when you cut two colors of cardstock. The flowers are cut from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Lush Green and Fresh Aqua.

I used poppystamps NEW Modest Greetings 2 Foil and Cut Die Set and Silver Foil.

The sentiment on this card is from the Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.

The NEW BPD Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers die set is so pretty with the layered look for the flower and the leaves.  When you die cut it scores the area where you add the layer so you know exactly where to glue the pieces.  Super easy!

The NEW BPD Star Flowers Contour Layers die set and the BPD Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die set (smaller branch) on this card… same as the Hibiscus.  You can see the marks where to place the layers… love that! No guessing or wondering if you got it in the right place.

Both cards are A2 size. The Hibiscus card I used a little bit of thin foam mounting tape, the one I’m linking below.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Make some strip cards!

Birch Press Design Prime Peony Duo Contour Layers Card…

Hi everyone!  This week has zoomed by me! But it’s Peony time of year and a perfect time to showcase this beautiful new die from Birch Press Design.

I watercolored these blooms with the newest set of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens Set A. Die Cut with Strathmore watercolor Brown pad.

Then I added a frame from the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die set.

I ink blended an A2 size panel of Strathmore Best Mixed Media cardstock (the brown pad).  Wow it blends nice.  I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the first time! and Peacock Feathers. I still use the mini round ink blending foams a lot and that’s what I used here.

Hugs is a new hot foil plate and die set from Birch Press Design also.  Hugs Sugar Script is the name of it.

I used silver hot foil and Bazzill Card Shoppe Robin’s Egg for Hugs.

I glued everything flat except for hugs.  It has thin mounting tape on the ends. Starlitstudio has it in stock!  I’ll link below!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it and hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather has been amazing here this week! YAY!

poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set Easel Card…

Hi everyone! I haven’t purchased my red geraniums yet!  I need to get shopping!  Today’s card I brought out the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set to plant my flowers in!

I die cut and edged all my pieces with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I love this NEW poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set! I used an old mouse pad and stylus to do a little flower shaping also.

Here’s a close up of the HELLO from the NEW poppystamps Birthday Wishes Poe Script Hot Foil Plate and Dies set.

I used Gold Hot Foil but I didn’t get a great picture that shows the goldness! lol

I backed the basket and used a strip on the base of a plaid from the Memory Box Woodsy Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

Memory Box Fairy Dewdrops for the flower centers…

Showing how it fits in an envelope.  I will use an A6 size when I mail this.  My flower is up to high for an A2.

It didn’t want to lay completely flat without me holding it down, but it does go completely flat.

I put the flowers together like they’re shown on the front of the package.  I put the easel card together just like it shows on the back of the package!  That helps so much to have pictures!

Everything is super green here!  I have ferns for the front porch, now I just need a couple red baskets for the back porch.  Let the watering begin!

Do any of you have Boston Ferns?  How do you water them?  Mine are always so full, it’s hard to get water to go in from the top, so I fill up a pail of water, take the fern down and sit the pot in the pail of water and let it soak up.  I’ve had really good luck with that in the past but I wonder if there’s a faster way?!

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll talk to you later!

Memory Box NEW Lavender Bouquet and Posh Thank You Hot Foil…

Hi everyone! Have you had time to look at the NEW Memory Box release and see the NEW Hot Foil Plate and Cutting Die sets?  Today I used the NEW Posh Thank You set and I love it on the Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock!

I started with a mini slimline panel.  Then I was thinking backgrounds…I love Memory Box Collage dies and I grabbed the Jumbled Line Collage and found all the positive pieces from cutting a few times in the envelope!  YAY! Make my own tile/brick looking wall to show off the lavender!

I ran a couple stripes of ATG adhesive down the panel and just started placing the strips…they’re very random lengths.  I didn’t go by anything, just picked up and stuck them on.

I die cut the lavender in lilac and green cardstocks, trimmed off the stems from the lilac ones and glued the top to the green.

I glued the stems directly over the strips, then glued the thank you directly over the stems.  No mounting tape was used on this one!

The panel is glued directly on the mini slimline cardbase too!

Easy to make, easy to mail!  yay!

Thank you for stopping by!  Curious what your favorite new dies are from this release?!

Memory Box Bouquet Blooms and Leaves and Butterfly Coterie Collage Card…

Hi and hugs to everyone today!  Memory Box has lots of NEW flower dies and word dies too! I love how this hugs snugged up into the card design!

I started with an A2 cardbase in extra heavyweight kraft cardstock.  Next I die cut the NEW Butterfly Coterie Collage die in a white panel I cut a half inch smaller than A2 width and height.

Then I die cut the Bouquet Blooms and Leaves NEW dies in Canson XL watercolor paper and colored them with Distress reinkers.  I sprayed water on the cuts and then brushed on some of the refill and let it spread, added more until I was happy-ish.  I kinda like the brightness of the colors against the white and kraft!

I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac reinkers.

I die cut the NEW Hugs Daily Script dies in white cardstock and the New Memory Box Black Glossy Heavyweight cardstock.  I really like this glossy black.  I think I say that every post these days! lol

I tied on the jute before I adhered it with thin mounting tape to the kraft cardbase.

There is a stencil that you can buy separately that coordinates with this Butterfly Coterie Collage.  I’m thinking…what to make with them together!

Simon Says Stamp A2 Marquee and Stained Glass Bird Card…

Hello! I have a Simon Says Stamp card to share with you using the NEW from the HAPPY AND JOYFUL release, A2 Marquee Die!  Three dies in this set and I love it!  I kept this card pretty CAS but I can see some stitching happening with this set!

I also used the NEW from the last release Stained Glass Bird die and from a release before that, the Fine Textured Leaf die set. I die cut the bird in white three times, keeping the pieces intact, glued them together and then die cut one in blue/green and glued it on top I love all the detail in the leaves and the shapes!

The sentiments ‘hello’  and ‘Happiest of Birthdays to you’ inside are from the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for all occasions!

Hello Friend! Memory Box NEW Ruffled Blooms and More Card…

Everyone is all about flowers right now!  It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! lol 

I started with an A2 card base, I cut the Hello Friend shadow part of the die directly in the card base. Then cut the shadow in white and the outline in NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock.  Love this stuff!   I very very lightly put a little Tombow Mono Multi glue on the top, bottom and side edges and inlaid it into the cardbase.  When you open the card you can see through and between some of the letters.  I like it!

I die cut the NEW Memory Box dies, Ruffled Blooms and Riverbank Large Layered Blooms, from the Memory Box 6×6 Fresh Aqua cardstock pad.

I die cut the New Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Set dies from the Memory Box 6×6 Lush Green cardstock pad.  The leaves in this die set are a must have!  So beautiful and good with all the flower dies!

I wasn’t quite sure where I was headed with this design but I love these colors and I’m really happy with how it turned out!  I will need to use an A6 envelope for presentation though because I left some petals and leaves over the edge a bit.

Pretty simple and all die cuts again! 

Whimsical and you know I always love kraft!  The cardstock I use for kraft cardbases is from Hobby Lobby… their Extra Heavyweight cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a good rest of the week and a lovely Spring weekend!  Spring in Iowa means rain. (how come there’s not a let it rain sentiment like let it snow?! haha) So stay dry if you can! ha

Memory Box NEW Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch Card…

Hello friends!  So thankful for all my cardmaker friends everywhere! You make me smile a lot!

Simple card today….I die cut this new Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch die from watercolor paper and colored with the new Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  They are so pretty!

I used three arches for this card, three of the medium size flower and three of the small size flower.

I used watercolor paper for the A2 size panel that I inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool. I stamped a couple sentiments around with the same ink from the NEW Memory Box Friends and Family stamp set. The center sentiment is stamped with Ranger Black Archival ink.

I used liquid glue to attach the three arches together and just on the circle to glue to the panel.  Then the flowers are glued just in the center to the wreath so I could ‘fluff’ the petals and leaves.

I added Memory Box small clear Fairy Drops, some Mayarts twine and glued the panel to a kraft color cardbase.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Holler if you have any questions!

poppystamps Potpourri Flower, Freestyle Smile, Whittle Snail Card…

You’ve got mail!  It’s always so fun to get mail! Here’s mail and a smile from this cute blushing snail! lol 

I die cut the NEW Potpourri Flower Set in white and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I didn’t look at any pictures for coloring…flying by the seat of my pants again! haha

I layered the NEW ps Penelope Pinpoint Frame on top of Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue cardstock A2 size panel.  Then I adhered those two, to a purple from the Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad. 

First I laid the flowers out down the left side of the panel from the top.  Took a picture of them with my phone and put the snail down to see how it looked, it was too close to the right side of the card!  I didn’t like it there!  So I picked the flowers up with a piece of press and seal and reversed them to the right side bottom corner instead.  Much better! 

Then I die cut the NEW ps Freestyle Smile all in white, it was ok, so I die cut the top in black, too bold, so I die cut it in purple, nah, so I die cut it in yellow and that was it!  I’m a terrible decision maker! lol 

The sentiment is from ps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set.  Stamped in the MISTI with versamark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I glued the flowers down, then the snail and sentiments with mounting tape.  Then I pulled up a couple of the flowers to put one on her head and one right close to the body. 

I added yellow Fairy Gems last. 

I forgot to talk about the snail!  It’s die cut in kraft cardstock and edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.  I went over the mouth, eyes and added eyelashes with a micro black fine point pen. 

It’s a bright card and more fun in real life.  I like it!  That’s saying a lot of me cuz I don’t love yellow and purple! lol

It’s a rainy, dreary day here so we need bright!  Have a good one anyway!  ttul!

Memory Box Floral Birthday Card and poppystamps Floral Miss You Card…

Hi everyone! I did a little flower coloring with Copics Monday. Colorbook therapy!  It’s been so nice here, I hope the flowers don’t come up to soon!

I started with an A2 size cardbase. Topped it with a panel of the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock.  It’s heavyweight and die cut so nice for the Happy Birthday sentiment too!

Then I die cut and glued together, three for each side, the NEW Hex Half Pinpoint die.  Don’t you love how it makes the perfect base for the NEW floral dies?!

Here’s a picture of the dies I used and for the flowers and leaves I colored.

Here’s a picture of the Copic Marker colors I used.

It didn’t take a whole lot of cuts!  I was surprised.  After coloring, I used black and white glaze pens to add some accents.

 

Look at this NEW Memory Box stamp set!!!  (Full picture lower in the post)  It matches the font of this Happy Birthday Posh Script die and the Miss you Posh Script die on my next card!  I absolutely love matching fonts for the inside of my cards! ❤

 

This picture I’m trying to show a little of the dimension.  I didn’t use any foam mounting tape and it will still go in the mail under ¼ inch thick for one forever stamp!  YAY! 

My second card for today is just plain floral fun!

The Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Paper pad came out for this card.  I love having 3 shades of each color to coordinate!  It sure saves time digging through cardstock to find matching pieces!

I started with an A2 size kraft cardbase. I die cut the NEW poppy Penelope Pinpoint Frame in white, glued it on.  I die cut the poppy Lattice Plate in white and glued it on.

Next came the NEW super pretty poppy Flower Field Frame die cut in one of the pinks in the Berry Red 6×6 pad and glued on.

Then some Memory Box Fairy Jewels for the flower centers.

Here’s the dies I used for this card…

and here’s the NEW stamp set that matches these posh script dies!  and the Berry Red 6×6 pad.

Haha!  Isn’t she the cutest! Look at that snout!  I added a couple more layers to it. lol  

I added the eyelashes with a color pencil!  I also went over the partial cuts at the ears, eyes, snout and legs with the same color pencil. 

Miss piggy is just one cut and I edged her with a little gathered twigs distress ink so she wouldn’t look too clean! haha  The thought did cross my mind that she’d be super cute in a mud puddle! 

She’s super cute…not sure who I’ll send it to but usually when I type that as soon as I hit publish I think of someone! 

Thank you all for hanging in here for this long post!  I promise not to make long a habit! lol

Birch Press Design Adornment Peony Card…

Hi friends and papercrafters!  A CAS card to share with you today.

Inlaid die cutting with Birch Press Design’s New Adornment Peony die. I die cut the flower in white and ink blended Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink on the flower petals and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks on the leaves with Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. This is an awesome set…the solid dies for backing the die piecing parts is in included!

I die cut the top panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles Die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the poppystamps  Diamond Sentiments clear stamp set with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink in the MISTI.

I added a scatter of several Memory Box Clear Fairy Drops.

It’s lighter, pinker than my pictures show. ugh.  I tried. lol

It’s unusually warm here so far today…55˚ but suppose to go down to 12˚ before the day is over!  eek!  Guess I’ll stay in and keep working.

NEW Dies/cards on the horizon!
