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!

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Puppy Birthday Card…

Meet Maggie! lol  There’s a new toy poodle at our middle daughter’s house. So I had to make our youngest grandson a cute Magic Iris Maggie card for his 6th birthday in January.  So fun!  Charley loves it!

I used the Memory Box Birdhouse die set for the doghouse because I don’t own the Lawn Fawn birdhouse die.

The dog dish and bone are an old big punch or were they an old Quickutz die…I can’t remember!  I looked through so much stuff to find something that would work! lol

The Lawn Fawn design team is so inspiring!  It’s nice as a card designer/maker not to always have to come up with a new idea!

Here it is closed… pull the arrow tab down and it opens like a camera lens, sorta kinda!  hehe

and a video… it’s bad but gives you an idea of how it works.

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

Hello Bluebird My Snowman Card…

Hi everyone!  yikes!  I’m thinking today I better get some cards posted I made for grands so far this year!  This might be the last snowman of the season for Iowa! Never know! lol  It snows in April some years.

Anyway… I know you’ll love the cuteness no matter what the season!

It was a good picture day whatever day I took these pictures so I have five pics to share! ❤

I used Hello Bluebird stamps and dies for this card.  I die cut the tree frame in kraft color cardstock…inked the brown trees, inked and then heat embossed the frame area with white embossing powder.

The background snow die is inked with Distress Oxide inks… ugh… I don’t remember the colors though.

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers… the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

So fun!  I always love making Winter scene cards.  This one is for our first red headed granddaughter that just turned 16 in January! We have two red headed granddaughters and five red headed grandsons!  My husband was a red head and two of our girls are red heads.  ❤

Hope this made you smile and bring back memories!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I always love hearing from you!

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.

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!

Birch Press Design Kinsley Heart Layers Card…

Back today with a heart card…when I looked at this die pkg, I got the idea to try it in succulent colors…

I wanted some texture so I started with the new Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Plate die for the background in TE Sweet Basil cardstock, regular A2 size.

Then I decided I wanted to use the new Memory Box Woodgrain Heart die to layer the heart layers, die cut in TE Toffee and inked with Distress Gathered Twigs ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I always like to have a sentiment so I used the new Memory Box Sending Love Posh Script again… three layers of cardstock, the top layer is inked with regular Distress inks… some purples.

The new Birch Press Design Kinsley Heart layers are die cut, Layer C in white and inked for the purple,  Layer B in TE Peapod cardstock and inked in TE peapod ink and Layer A in TE Sweet Basil and inked in TE Sweet Basil ink.

I tied it up with that fun May Arts twine and it was done.

The bunnies, sentiment and snowballs are from the Memory Box Snow Much Fun stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.


The sled and presents are from the Memory Box Be Jolly stamp and die sets HERE and HERE.

I love that these sets can be used for Christmas and Winter… the candy cane could easy be switched out with the heart for Valentines Day! And there’s a die for all in the set!

I used the Memory Box Fresh Pine Curved Border die HERE for the snowy tree hill in the background.

Salty Ocean and a little bit of Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks for the background…then a spattering of white acrylic paint.

This card is the fabulous mini slim size that I am really loving!  3 ½ inches x 6 inches.  A few posts back I showed one this size but vertical using the new Memory Box Verdant Leaf Collage die, HERE.

So fun…Be watching!  More new stuff coming!  Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box NEW Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate Valentine…

Good Thursday to you! Another inky Valentine today.

I die cut in Neenah 110# solar white cardstock with the NEW Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate.  I inked with regular Distress inks and the mini foam ink blending tools.  Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry.

Then I needed something to do with it!  So I stamped words like conversation hearts from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines stamp set.

I added the new Memory Box Sending Love Posh Script die.  I inked up a scrap of white with Picked Raspberry and die cut the top cut from it… the underneath two layers are just white.

The sweet cupid dotting the ‘i’ with a teeny heart is the Memory Box Cupid with Bow die.  There’s also a bow and arrow with the cupid and teeny heart.  It’d be great on ATC’s.

I’ll stop talking and get back to birthday cards!  The sun is shining here…thankful!

ttul,
