poppystamps Meadow Flower and Stitch Wreath CAS card…

Here with a special delivery!  This simple sweet flower makes a statement against this stitch flower wreath.  I love it!  A little Copic Sketch Marker coloring with the G40’s and a Y15.  The little white dots are from a Signo White Gel Pen.

I think I could make this card next time in 30 minutes!  A record! lol  I have to tell you though, this washi tape was discontinued some time ago…like a couple years.  October Afternoon is the brand.  Some things are just timeless!  Other tapes or a sentiment on a card-stock strip would work just as well.  Check out SLS’s selection of new Alexandra Renke tapes… whoa, so cool!

I keep looking for buds on our new trees.  Tim says not to expect much but I want much! lol

Here’s some pictures of them… click to see them big.

Here he is bringing the first tree after he made the hole with the same truck…then back and forth until all 3 were in the ground.

 

 

 

We have a red oak from several years ago on the other side of the white oak in the front.  Grow trees grow! Now the ground is tilled up and all new seed planted…lots of watering happening!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hang on to the little bit of April that’s left!  haha  Our oldest two grandsons are in Detroit at Worlds First Tech Robotics competition. I’m watching the live streaming…glued to the computer!  Anybody else have ppl there?  120 teams from 60 countries! While the big boys are competing, the two youngest are collecting buttons from the teams!  So fun!

poppystamps Rose Stem Collage card…

Hi everyone!  This is the only kind of flowers I have growing here! lol  I’ll have some hanging pots in a couple weeks though!

I love how this card turned out.  I’m don’t feel like I’m very good with color schemes but I’m drawn to this coral/pink color this year.

It’s just charming!  I didn’t put a sentiment yet because I loved it plain first of all but I think it’d be a lovely Mother’s Day or any occasion really.

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers,  R20, 21 and 22 for the pink/coral color, G40, 43 and 46 for the green.

I added some Doodlebug Limeade Pearls…classy little things. hehe  Shoot me now!  These pearls aren’t in the stores anymore!  So, I would tell you to color your white baby pearls with Copic markers or better yet, color them with alcohol ink.

The frame is the between part of the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames…don’t throw that part away!

Holler if you have any questions…this is an A2 size top folding card.

Alexandra Renke Poppy Flowers and More…

Hi everybody! Hottest topic these days?  yep, STILL the weather! lol  Spring/Winter/Spring/Winter/Spring/Winter…keepin’ us guessing!  As long as our new trees can handle it I’m ok! lol

So I’ve been playing with the stamp shammy on distress ink blending technique…not sure who came up with it but I bet it was somebody that made a beautiful ink blended background and then accidentally dropped their stamp shammy on it and magic happened! lol

I’ve made several with regular Distress ink but this one is Distress Oxide on Canson Smooth Bristol paper pad.  Orange cover pad, be sure it says smooth.   I started with Twisted Citron on the bottom, then Peacock Feathers with Broken China on the top/last.  After you’re done blending on the color with your ink blending tools, use your damp stamp shammy bunched up to make a few folds in the wad and pounce it on your inky background!

Oh it’s fun!  AND with the oxides, if you pounce on the darker and move to the lighter it transfers the ink and layers it on top… so cool…you can see it on the Twisted Citron here.

I die cut the Poppy Flowers with the same card and inked them with Oxides too.  Candy Apple, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.  I did come back in with matching Distress Markers for the little dots in the petals and leaves.

I did water spattering on the background and the die cuts.  I spray water (a puddle) into the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and clap over the pieces I want spattered.  Not so many big blobs that way.

I die cut the panel with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die…then embossed the sentiment from Neat and Tangled, So Many Sentiments stamp set on a strip of vellum using the MISTI to stamp, white pigment ink pad and white super fine embossing powder.

I’ll link everything below.  It was fun playing around… this was the 2nd card I made with these Poppy Flower dies…I had to get warmed up first with a ‘safe’ CAS card… lol!

Linking to some challenges…

Happy Little Stampers April Anything Goes With Dies Challenge

Less Is More – Bring Something Back – vellum and embossing on it

 

 

 

This card is basically self explanatory! 😀  So very clean and simple but I like it!  I die cut the Poppy Flowers dies and hello in white.  Glued the flowers down flat with Lineco PVA glue in the Darice fine tip bottles.  Well, first I die cut a red A2 size panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die…jazzed it up a bit…knowing me, I would’ve liked it plain too! lol  A few Doodlebug enamel dots, hello glued directly on black and then mounted to the card with thin mounting tape.

These Alexandra Renke dies are beautiful…wait until you click over and see all the other products!  The washi tape is to die for and the pattern paper is just gorgeous!  Beautiful floral and other designs… check it all out HERE Fun to change things up now and then. hehe

OH… I said ‘more’ up there in the title didn’t I?!  I almost forgot!  I have a sweet silhouette card to share that is perfectly Spring!

This is the Alexandra Renke Panorama Easter Girl die…I really think you could use it any time of year though, don’t you?  I just die cut her and her chicks in black, mounted her with thin foam mounting tape to an ink blended textured watercolor paper and spattered it up!

There are several other super sweet die borders from AR too…you’ll see them when you click to the link above.  I want more of course! haha!

I’ll leave you with this wish for a happy Spring. I’m a realist…reality is that Spring ain’t all it’s cracked up to be! lol  So we’ll just keep making our pretty cards and pretending that Spring isn’t a wet mess! If the sun comes out…HURRY and take advantage of it! lol

Thanks for stopping by and aren’t we fortunate we can make cards on the yukky days!

Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release!

Hi everyone!  I’m excited to be sharing two cards I made with a die that Simon Says Stamp sent me to play with from their new release Fluttering By!

Here I combined the NEW Flickering Butterflies die and SSS Sending and Wishing stamp and die sets with Memory Box Devonshire Wreath and Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies.

I made a Distress Ink smooshed background on watercolor paper, kept it very simple with one color of ink!

Pretty sure it was Peacock Feathers ink and a Memory Box Pool notecard for the card-base

A little thin foam mounting tape cut to fit under the flowers on the wreath and a little black gem in the centers.

Here the Flickering Butterflies took to the forest! Using three pieces of brown textured card-stock I die cut one with SSS Birch Tree Window die and adhered it directly to the white card-base.  Next up is the Memory Box Everglade Collage die cut and mounted with thin foam mounting tape. The top piece is cut with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die and the Woodland Glimpse Collage die. It is mounted on top with thin foam mounting tape also.

I die cut the NEW SSS Flickering Butterflies from a Memory Box Pool notecard and the poppystamps Brush hello is die cut from a Memory Box Sage notecard.

It’s close but this will still go through the mail with one postage stamp!  yay!  I wish you could see it IRL!  😀

Thanks for stopping by and have fun looking and shopping this fabulous NEW release!

Here’s what I used and thank you so much! Linking to the MB Catalina wreath because SSS doesn’t have the Devonshire right now.

poppystamps Sending Scribbles Birthday Wreath card…

Last week I was playing around with stamps to make wreaths. I die cut a 3 ¾ inch circle, stuck the negative in the MISTI, marked the area where the first image kinda landed and then I kept moving my inner circle focal piece around to stamp the complete wreath.

Here’s a picture that might possibly live up to the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words! lol

I did have to mask off part of one to fill in a space.

I colored/painted the flowers with Distress Oxide inks. I don’t know that I would use this ink to color very often.  It tends to cover the black line you stamped if you’re not careful.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used the coordinating die set to cut out the word sending. I did use the thin mounting tape behind the die cut word. Another set I love!

A little Lawn Fawn Trimmings twine and some black Nuvo drops and the piece was pretty much done.  I cut a black piece of card-stock to 4 x 5 ¼ inch and mounted it to a top folding A2 card-base.

Linking my birthday wishes card to the following challenges…

Stempelgarten Challenge – Spring

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Occasions

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Add some texture (nuvo drops and twine)

The Crazy Challenge – Spring

Addicted to Stamps and More – Make Your Mark

 

 

This card I stamped it the same way in the MISTI with the circle template I made but I stamped it so the black lines touched.  There was a little bit of space left at the bottom so I punched a couple 1/8th inch holes, added a piece of ribbon and tied a bow.

This one I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush pens doing wet on wet.  You can see what happens with that in the close up below! lol  It flows! No artist here! lol

 

I didn’t use a very good quality watercolor paper…just use the good stuff Pam! haha

The sentiment is from a neat Memory Box set called Prayers Sentiments…I really like how you can put the words together to say what you want.  There are several of these small sets.  Good deal! ok – I’ll shut up!

Memory Box Painted Flower Stems…

Hi everyone! I’m sure this Spring is finding you hustling to get stuff done!  That’s the way it is here anyway.  I think I told you that we lost 3 trees Nov. 6, 2107.  They were in what the city calls their right a way, so they cut them down… Emerald Ash bore. Sob.  So it’s been crazy trying to figure out and find replacement trees!  We did it though and now have 3 new trees that we paid big bucks for in what they consider their property. sigh.  oh well… gotta have trees!  Shade!!!  Cuz HOT is coming! lol

I did get some cards made to share here though!  yay!

This one is using the new Memory Box Painted Flower Stems die... I went CAS (clean and simple) again… die cut in watercolor paper and used Zig Watercolor brush markers. Do you remember Memory Box Dave’s watercolor dip video?  Thinking this die would be fun for that technique too!  True, you could do this up a million ways! lol  and for a lot of occasions!

I went with sympathy this time because I need to get some in my stash.  The sentiment I used is from the poppystamps Peony Stems and Blossoms set.  Love this set!  I stamped it in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  That’s my go to black right now.

Hobby Lobby watercolor paper for the cardbase and die cut.  I just ink blended on some Distress ink in the background.  I think it was Broken China.  Then spattered on some of the watered down Zig color that I scribbled on my craft mat.

I did use the thin mounting tape that I link to below, to adhere the die cut. Placing it behind the flowers and the base.

Thanks for stopping by today and HEADS UP!!!  BIG SALE going on at Starlitstudio.net!  click over, click on clearance in the sidebar on the left.

Karen Burniston Coffee Cup Pop-up Card…

Here’s that cup of Joe you said you needed! 😀 This was so fun to make!

The white piece of card sticking out the side on the right of the mug is a gift card… I know, I know… we were at WM but I forgot to pick up a gift card!  We were thinking Easter stuff!  hehe

Here’s a close up of the sentiment… I just used a piece from the paper pad…

And here’s the front!

More pieces of the 6×6 patter paper pad and a stamped sentiment from a Hero Arts stamp set.  I used Carta Bella Flora No 1 6×6 pad that isn’t available anymore, so I linked below to Carta Bella Flora No 2.  Same type of look to it.

AND, the most important thing…here’s Karen’s video on how to put this together!  She is awesome…easy to follow and so good at walking a person through the process.  If you ever get a chance to go to her classes…GO!  I taught at the same event with her a few years ago and it was so nice to meet her and chat about die cutting/cardmaking.  She has a lot of fun dies for pop up cards.
