Memory Box cards and ‘stamps only’ blog blitz…

It’s ‘stamps only’ Blog Blitz week over on the Memory Box Blog this week, HERE!  Be sure to click over and comment for a chance to win from the NEW stamp release!

I ❤ the chalkboard look and thought this NEW  ‘Butterfly Study’ stamp would work great with it!  I inked up the study stamp with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder on MB Licorice card-stock.

I stamped the NEW Happy Birthday Background on MB White card-stock with MementoEspresso Truffle ink  and a stamp a ma jig. I layered the image with MB Cranberry and Kraft card-stocks and cut the mats with the Perfect Layers Rulers.  I used MB Licorice Distressed Dots card-stock and mounted the finished piece on a 5 1/2 in. x 5 1/2 in. card.  It’s for the artist in the class!  : )

Thank you Kitty for mentioning me in the SCS Weekly Favorites thread!  I appreciate it!

It’s that time of year when everyone loves to see flowers blooming! This card features the NEW Luminous Poppies stamp.  I inked it with waterbase markers and then moistened it with just a very light spritz of water before I stamped it. I stamped the Butterfly stamp, from the end of the NEW A Very Happy Hello combo with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, on a tag and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers warm grays.

The sentiments are from the NEW April Showers combo.  I have them in the NEW cling option, so I cut the two lines apart (they fit right back together), inked them with Versafine Onyx Black ink and positioned with the Stamp a ma jig.

MB White, Licorice, Dots and Gingham card-stock and red paper cord to tie on the tag. The layers are cut with the Perfect Layers Rulers. Finished card is A2 size.  I ❤ this color combo!

For this card I used the NEW Branches Background stamp, the NEW Just Thinking of You Today stamp and the top line from the NEW Happy Birthday Background stamp.  I used the Spring Branch stamp on the MB parchment card-stock, punched circle.  The sentiments and branch on the circle are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

I played around inking the Branches Background stamp and I liked this result the best with these MB pattern papers, the awesome Bill of Sale 12×12 card-stock and the 6×6 packBrioche card-stock.  I inked the Branches Background with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress inks, a light spritz of water, then stamped on watercolor paper.  Then I went over the stamped areas with a water filled waterbrush.  When it was dry,  I aged it with Antique Linen Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

The birdie square is punched from the Bill of Sale pattern paper. The butterfly is stamped from the NEW Butterfly Study stamp and then cut out.   The MB Juniper and Thistle card-stock layers are cut with the Perfect Layers Rulers.   A little hemp, a couple snips with the scissors for the fish tail banner, the paper edges aged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.  A 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch square finished card.
THANKS for the visit!   sorry for the long post!  I got carried away with cards… hehe

  3. So beautiful….I saw some card samples yesterday at my LSS using these stamps and they were so pretty. Your take on them is equally as beautiful even though a totally different color/technique from what I saw done with them. I love seeing different “takes” on how you can use stamps and dies. Great cards today, as always.

  4. Oh, beautiful. I really working with black, white and red…….love it.
    Your creations are simple and awesome.

  5. I can’t decide which is my favorite. Each of them is a little mini work of art. If I had to choose, though, I think it would be the first one. It’s just so striking!

  6. Hi Pam;
    Great job…love the chalk look of the Butterfly study…the tiny circle tag with the butterfly is a nice touch on the second card and on the third card, I liked best the layout…
    happy to have you as a co- DTM…
