Memory Box Pine Wreath and Snowberry Sprigs Card, Meadowtree Frame and Countryside Fence Frame Flip Card…

Hi everyone! I meant to get cards posted on Saturday and here it is Tuesday already!  I’m just going to put these two in one post.

I saw the ‘wreath’ challenge at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and had to play along!

I die cut one of the Memory Box Stitched Square Layers dies in a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, then embossed the next larger square die by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat (link below).  I use the multi purpose platform and take away the first layer to do the embossing.

I colored a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with 3 different green Copic Sketch markers and then die cut the NEW Pine Wreath die (4 branches) on each color.  Then I die cut one of the NEW Snowberry Sprigs die in Solar White and colored the berries red and the stem brown with Copic Sketch markers too.

Use a 1.6 inch circle frame from the Memory Box Stitched Circles dies for the wreath base, then adhere the pine branches onto the base.

Then I cut the NEW Snowberry Sprig into little sprigs and just glued them in, here and there very randomly.  Fun! Christmas is a time for greens and berries for sure! Glad Tidings is from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments stamp set.

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything Christmas

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – pop it up (3d mounting tape)

The swap for stamp club Friday was a card with a different fold… so I made this next card at the last minute!  The pictures aren’t the greatest cuz, last minute loo loo was hurrying!

Here’s the front… I layered up the NEW Meadowtree Frame with the Horse Sleigh Landscape die…cut both in Solar White 110# cardstock and ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spattered on some white ink. I colored the horse and sleigh with a Copic Sketch black marker trimmed it to fit and mounted it to the scene.

When you pull both sides, it flips the square.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the flip part of the card it’s an older one that’s not available anymore #657591.  It’s really easy to make this fold yourself though.  I’ve done it before.  Holler if you want me to find a tutorial for it or draw up the measurements for you. I need to make another one and make a video of it flipping!   There is also a new thin die from Sizzix.  I’ll link up to it below and the square looks like it’s * close to the same size.

I used the NEW Countryside Fence Frame die and the NEW Meadowtree Frame on the flip side.  I ink blended the sky with Chipped Sapphire Regular Distress ink and white ink splatters.

The Seasons Greetings sentiment is from the NEW Be Jolly stamp set and let it snow is from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Memory Box Delicate Pine Frame, Pine Forest Frame Masculine Scene Christmas Card…

Hi everyone! I always like to have a few cards ready for Tim to send at Christmas…a touch masculine but still pretty! lol  I need to add some glitter here and there! hehe   At Christmas you can get away with glitter on scene cards for men I think!

Basic card here…die cut everything in white, except the sky piece, I cut it in blue with the older Speckled Background die. (you can always spatter with white ink for the look of snow) Ink the die cuts with Distress Inks and stick it together!  yay! Stitched Hill, NEW Delicate Pine Frame, NEW Pine Forest Frame,  New Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame and the sentiment from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Now that I’m looking at this in photos, I’m thinking, hmmm… I need to add a scrap of red plaid! lol  Isn’t that the way of it, all done, pictures taken, writing the post and bam…I should’ve.  NO!  I will on the next card! lol

So fun all the things you can do with Memory Box and poppystamps dies.  I have so many cards started.  Fortunately I do finish them eventually!

This is an A2 size top folding card.

Holler if you have any questions.  I haven’t been sleeping the best, makes me feel like I’m forgetting details!

Thank you so much for stopping by and all your encouraging words here and on FB and IG.  I appreciate it so much! ❤

Memory Box Holiday Lamp Post Frame and Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame Christmas Cards…

Peace… we talk about it so much at Christmas but I couldn’t help but think of it today, being 9/11.  I truly don’t see it ever being humanly possible because of  fallen man but peace in your soul works for me.  My daughter just shared this with us and it spoke to me too!

I hope I remember this quote!

Some more about this card…The NEW Memory Box Holiday Lamp Post Frame die…So beautiful!  I tucked in the NEW poppystamps Tree Line Hill behind it… so versatile.  I die cut two of the Lamp Post Frame…green and white.  Cut the white one apart so I could adjust the white to show a wee bit behind the green.  Then I went ahead and glued the rest of the white circle behind for the extra dimension…why waste the cut you know! *smile*

The little red bird is from the NEW Memory Box Delicate Pine Frame die.  Cut in white and colored with a Copic R46 marker. A little yellow on the lamp post glass too. (I think these little birds are going to show up a lot around here! lol)

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Peace Cheshire Script die 3 times and glued them together and then glued it to a strip of white cardstock that I mounted over the snowflake from the NEW Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame die.  It’s a beauty!

Another shot of it… I must say I love this card and hope you do too! lol  It’s an A2 size and will mail for one postage stamp.

TIP: I’ve been mailing my A2 size cards in A6 envelopes.  I think they hold up better traveling in that larger size, the corners don’t get bent going through the machine and from being dropped.  Still only one stamp to go!

I have another card to share with the NEW Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame but I used the square frame from the New Memory Box Holiday Lamp Post Frame die too.  These sets all mix and match beautifully!

A simple 4 ¼ inch square card. Easy to mail for one stamp in an A2 or A6 envelope.

Here’s the peace word die again too…a silver foil cut on top of two white cardstock cuts… glued together and then glued to the card.  I did mount the circle with Scotch foam mounting tape.

IRL these cards are a little more blue-ish…

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing a little ‘peace’ with me.  Take care.

Hello Bluebird Birthday Card…

 

Hi everyone…it’s been a fun Summer with our kids and g-kids. This is the card I made for Cedryk who turned six in July.  He loves to fish with his dad and gpa and loves his kitties and dog and everything on wheels! lol

I had so much fun with this… I die cut the Pond Builder Set in Strathmore 400 BEST coldpress watercolor paper and watercolored the pieces with Gansai Tambi 36 color wc set.  I mixed color right on my Tonic craft mat and then spattered on the extra with my favorite brush for spattering… I’ll link it up below… it’s the round #4 in the set.

I stamped the colored images on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, die cut them, then colored them with Copic Sketch markers. TIP: I always die cut before I color… if you need something larger to hold on to, use a temporary adhesive and stick the cut to a larger piece of paper or cardstock.

Isn’t he just the cutest and that kitty!!!

 

It was hard to narrow down the photos for this one…this scene just made me photo happy! lol

I hope it makes you smile too!  We were having some super hot and humid days but wow, now it won’t stop raining and being humid.  Yep, I’m from Iowa, we’re always talkin’ ’bout the weather!  I don’t like to go places in the rain people! lol  I came up the front stairway last night and bam… the roof is leaking. ugh.  Water is supposed to stay outside and in ponds you know!  So I’m feeling whiny baby.  sigh

Thank goodness for cute cards!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and see you soon…bring on the snow! haha

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release Party!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog post for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Party!  You’re invited to join the fun…visit all the blogs linked on the Simon Says Stamp blog HERE!  Click to shop and use your code choice to receive an exclusive gift (several options) with your order!  How awesome is that!!!

I have two cards to share with you today using the NEW exclusive SSS stamp set, Your Greatest Dreams.  I love the variety of scripts used and beautiful quotes and sayings!

I couldn’t resist using this one with the SSS Picture Book Snowman!

When I started looking through my SSS stamp and die sets and saw this cute guy and the snowflakes I thought of Frosty!

I created a background by white heat embossing the Lots of Snowflakes stamp set and inking it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I had to give him a heart. lol  I die cut him in white, colored the parts with Copic Sketch markers and edged his body with Tumbled Glass ink also.

 

My next card uses another sentiment from the same new set…

What a good reminder to enjoy every day!  As I’m writing this post it’s storming and raining but it’s too late to go out in the rain!  I’m tired! lol

Here I white heat embossed one of the clouds from the SSS Cloudy Sky’s stamp set multiple times.  Then stamped one of the outline stamps from the same set with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and die cut them with the coordinating die set.  I masked off the area for the sentiment and using the mini ink blending tool, I blended on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the clouds and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink on the bottom.

Isn’t that a gorgeous script though!  I love it!

A clean and simple card with a powerful sentiment/reminder!

Thank you so much for visiting my party blog post today! Enjoy the rest of the party stops! What fun!

Memory Box Country Church Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  I don’t know about where you are but it was anything but a silent night here!  Rain, lightning and sounded like hail once. Drama all night!  This snowy scene looks so peaceful and a silent night sounds wonderful! lol

We’re in for a rainy holiday weekend according to the weather stats. Hoping for a little dry Monday so we can have a birthday party!

My card today is using the new gorgeous Memory Box Country Church Frame die, die cut from silver metallic cardstock and some elements from other new Memory Box dies… I love mixing and matching and that little touch of red!

The little red bird is from the MB Delicate Pine Frame die (cut in red cardstock), the holly sprig is from the MB Elegant Holly Double Frame die, then I used the new MB Snowy Circle die in the background (ink blended with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink).

The sentiment is from the new MB Typewrite Holiday Sentiments set and I heat embossed it with Ranger silver embossing powder on silver metallic cardstock.

The church and trees are two layers of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.

The card is 4 ½ inches square but would fit in an A6 or A7 envelope so you can mail with a regular postage stamp!

Linking to some challenges…

Watercooler Wednesday – anything goes

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – sketch

 

And my card was a winner!  Thank you so much ladies!


 

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow with two cards using a stamp set that Simon Says Stamp sent me to use for their STAMPtember release! It was a challenge coming up with cards because it was a sentiment stamp set they sent!  So come on back!  I need your encouragement! lol

Lawn Fawn Screen Time Reveal Wheel Birthday Cards…

Hi everybody!  Two more Reveal Wheel Die cards today…I always am needing boy cards!  Grandsons Henry turned 12 and Corrin turned 9 in July!  Growing up fast!

The Lawn Fawn Screen Time stamp and die sets worked for both boys! I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Sketch markers. The background on this one is Distress Oxide inks, Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs.  Lawn Fawn plaid pattern paper.

Linking this card to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 35 – Coffee, Tea and Treats  (treats in the window)

and Seize the Birthday – anything goes birthday

My next card is the same stamp and die sets from Lawn Fawn with a piece of woodgrain pattern paper for the floor, I  drew in some more lines so the planks weren’t so wide, then using a black calligraphy marker I went over the top edge to get the look of baseboard trim. I used the drink, chips, pizza and popcorn bowl in the windows of both cards.

Distress Oxide Twisted Citron is the wall color.

The Reveal Wheel Cards are so easy to make with the die set… Lawn Fawn has really good videos to walk you through it.  I don’t do the step anymore where you pencil in where to put the sentiments on the circle.  I just stamp one sentiment, turn it and stamp another directly across from it, turn it and stamp the other two sentiments just by eyeballing.  It’s really easy to get them stamped right.

Both are A2 size cards and mailable!  yay!

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with more Memory Box and poppystamps!
