Two Cards…a Birthday and a Snowman!

Hi cardmakers and friends!  It was Tim’s birthday the other day… I made him a card!  He was surprised! lol

This cute little raccoon is old, from Stampendous, the sentiment too.  I searched and didn’t find it anywhere but I thought it was fun enough to share and bring some smiles!

Colored with Copics on Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock.

 

Then our swap at club Friday was a snowman theme.  I made this…

It’s from a clear stamp set by Impressions Obsession.  I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on kraft and colored it with white and blue color pencil.  A Memory Box Postage frame die and a little red heart to jazz it up. Add a heart any time you can. lol

A jolly happy soul!  May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart and home!

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Box Scrollwork Heart Circle Frame…3 Cards

I do love hearts and it was so fun to use pink, green and kraft with this new Memory Box Scrollwork Heart Circle Frame die!

A 4 ¼ inch square card again…fits A2 or A6 envelopes for easy, one postage stamp mailing.

Mounting tape behind the hearts and the lace element make it easy to hold the pieces in place and adhere to the card base.

The sentiment is another from the new poppystamps Love and Friendship stamp set!

 

Next…

There has to be Cupids around shooting ppl with arrows for it to be love, right?! lol

Same Scrollwork Heart Circle Frame die on an A2 size card but I added the new MB Cupid Circle die in the center and the arrow from the new Cupid with Bow die at the bottom.  I love this little arrow!  It gets the ‘point’ across! lol

Traditional colors but the dot paper is more of a gray… fun!

The ‘love you’ sentiment is from the new MB Best Life Typewriter Sentiments stamp set.  I love the variety in this set. Something for every occasion!

 

Next…

A shape card!  Using the Basic Circles die set, I turned this one into a circle card!

YES!  Be Mine Valentine!  ❤

Such Fun!  I hope you get some new stamps and dies with your Christmas gift money and get to playing on this fine Winter day!  Our stamp club meets this afternoon so I have plenty of ‘show and tell’! lol

Take card (edited to ‘care’ I mean! lol) and I’ll talk to you again soon!  Thanks for letting me show and tell!

Three Valentines with the NEW Memory Box Woodland Heart Frame Die…

First up…oops… I said Valentines up there but I made this one a birthday card! oh well, it could easy be a Valentine too!   The Woodland Heart Frame die, the bike from the Neighborhood Heart Frame die and a sentiment from the new stamp set, Best Life Typewriter Sentiments.

I tore a piece of printer paper and inked the concrete and used a cloud stencil to ink the clouds.  A little bit of Copic marker to make the shadows under the bike tires.

I love the heart in the tree, don’t you?!

I inked the kraft die cuts with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Here you can see that I used mounting tape to raise up the center circle.  I just cut narrow strips…not hard at all!

 

Next…

It’s not Valentines Day unless I use some of this pool color, red and kraft! Oh and white!

The little heart flowers are from the new Scrollwork Heart Circle Frame die.

There’s that heart in the tree again!  😀

I used the new Love Jotted Script die too.  I love these sentiment dies like this… so easy to glue up and even a little mounting tape under the top of the ‘L’.

I used mounting tape strips again for the center circle.

These cards will all mail easy for one postage stamp….even though they’re square they are 4 ¼ inch so will fit in an A2 envelope easy.

Next…

No fear of getting bored creating with these dies…mix and match and just have fun!

The sentiment I used is from the new poppystamps Love and Friendship clear stamp set.  I’ll show another sentiment from the set on a card tomorrow.

I was going to post all 6 cards in one post but then I changed my mind…3 today and 3 tomorrow!  Then who knows what will be next!

It’s a beautiful, sunny day on this 10th day of January already!  Soakin’ up the sun sounds good!

Thanks for stopping by and check in tomorrow too because you know I love to show and tell!  (my favorite subject in school! lol)

Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers Ink blended background with some water spots and I’ll just link up what I used at the bottom of the post so not a lot of text today!

SSS Big Picture Book Puppy Birthday Card and 30% off SSS Brand Dies!!!

What a fun thing to wake up to this a.m.!  Made me blog! lol Fortunately I still have some pictures of our grandson Leo’s birthday card that I haven’t posted yet and I used Simon Says Stamp Brand dies for it! YAY!  Click on the ad to shop, it’s an affiliate link. Thank you for clicking from here!  ❤

Ranger products are also 25% off and there’s even more crazy, amazing sales HERE! A lot of stuff 99 cents!  HURRY!

This pup is so cute!  2018 was the year of dogs for our family!  3 Standard Poodles and 1 Doodle added to the 3 daughter’s families!  Ambitious girls! lol

So this card for Leo, the pup had to be black.  😀

I used two of the new Big Picture dies… I’ll link them below and an old Quickutz number die for the 5.  The sentiment is from a MFT stamp set.  I’ll try to find it to link to also.  Oh, I cut an extra body and used the legs for paws too!  😀

Two close ups and I gotta run shop too! lol

I layered up the eyes and nose 5 or so times to get them to stand out against the black.  I punched the white part of the eye.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Here’s to a wonderful week after Christmas of relaxing and papercrafting!  I finally started something yesterday. lol

Altenew Poinsettia and Pine…Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Friends and Cardmakers!  All the Best to you!

Here’s a big picture of the tags I made for the gift bags we used for stockings for the grandkids this year.  I’m going to keep the bags and reuse them every year!  Now you know what I’ve been up to!  We have a wonderful family celebration here yesterday…today I’m taking it easy!  😀

Take care!  Be back soon!

Memory Box Poinsettia Circle Frame and Nativity Circle…

It was a Holy Night…this card…was a challenge but nothing compared to what Mary and Joseph faced! A beautiful reminder of what Christmas is all about!

I painted the die cuts with Gansai Tambi watercolors and metallics. Layered them together and placed them on a red glitter die cut circle.  A little gold stickles for the centers.

The sentiment is from the Bold Holiday Greetings stamp set, stamped in Ranger Archival Black ink with the MISTI.

I hope you’ve had a beautiful season of creating Christmas cards…hard to believe we’re closing in on the month of December already!  I could make Christmas cards all year!

Thank you for supporting me and my blog and God bless you all!  P.S.  Shopping links in my right sidebar…
