poppystamps Spring Pots Frame Cards and Shopping!

Hi everyone! More card ideas with the 2019 Spring poppystamps release today. Here I die cut the Spring Pots Frame in white 2x and black cardstocks, then  inlaid it into an A2 kraft cardstock panel that I also die cut with the Spring Pots Frame die.

I put scor-tape on the back so I could inlay the rest of the little pieces.  I colored the kraft cardstock frame pieces with a Copic sketch marker E43 and pieced them in.  The pot pieces I colored with YR18 and BG07. The little leaves I used YG25.

The teal frame is an ‘inbetween’ piece that falls out when you die cut the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames before you clip them apart.  I colored it with BG07 Copic Sketch marker.

The white outside frame is the largest die from the set of poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames.

The sentiment is from the poppy Birthday Blowout clear stamp set, embossed in white embossing powder. Such a great stamp set, I will use every stamp in the set!

No mounting tape on either of my cards today!  This one is perfectly flat-ish for snail mailing!

My second card…

This one, I die cut in white 2x, glued it to an oxide background, added some enamel dots, a die cut frame and two hours later it was done. haha

Where does the time go?!

Oxide inks I used are Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I blended them on with the mini ink blending tools.

The enamel dots are from Doodlebug and the white frame is the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames, cut 3x and glued together.

The sentiment is from the poppy Springtime Greetings clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for Easter and Spring!

Hope you’re getting some inky, papercrafting, cardmaking time too!  I should be outside working or washing windows or something but maybe I’m allergic! haha  Hey, it’s whatever you enjoy!  Make some time for it, right?!

3 Memory Box Nautical Cards…

Hi everyone!  hey, the sentiment on this card works for me and blogging too! hehe  I’m still here!  I got caught up on a house project and wouldn’t you know, it took longer than I thought!  I have a list of those projects. ugh.  Sure feels good when you get something accomplished though!

Hang with me today…keep scrolling…3 cards to share with you!

I really love this anchor frame!  It’s so intricate and so fun in any color! It’s a new Memory Box die called Sailboat Frame.  When you get down to my 3rd card, I used the Sailboat part of the set too.

Here it’s very basic…well all three are pretty basic….adding the kraft color rope frame was genius though.  I was stuck at what it needed and bam it hit me.  Oh, I’m so thankful when that happens, otherwise something can sit on my desk forever!

I wanted to use the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die again and thought it went so well with the frame.  I used a Memory Box Circle Basics die to cut out the Lighthouse Collage.

The sentiments on all three of my cards today are from the new Memory Box Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments stamp set.

I added the Memory Box Flying Gulls in the background, glued directly to the card.  The lighthouse and the circle part of the frame have mounting tape behind them. Nothing under the points/corners.

 

I actually started with this card, didn’t finish it, made the 3rd card, then made the blue card and finally made it back to this CAS white on navy blue card!

I used the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die and the wood dock pieces from the Memory Box Beachfront Seagulls die.  I love the detail on the wood.  I die cut, leave the pieces in the die and rub over the backside of the card-stock with a stylus so the embossing detail from the die is more pronounced.  Then I ink it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool. Love that wood detail!

I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die, matted it on an A2 size navy blue panel and then on an A2 white card-base.

 

And here’s #3!  I used pattern paper. Rather playful, don’t you think?!  This is October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad.  Starlitstudio.net has a few pieces left in the store HERE from the 12 x 12 collection. Otherwise it is discontinued.  I’m sure if you’re like me, you have something in your stash that would be fun for something like this!  😀

The Sailboat Frame die set, using all the pieces this time, super cute sailboat, waves and clouds!  I love the frame die cut in this red wood paper! I die cut the greenish square mat with the Memory Box Square Basics die set.

I love that you get so many sizes with these Basics Shapes die sets and they work with all the Memory Box dies.

I’ll stop at 3 cards today!  eek! lol  Hope you had fun scrolling through and if you’re a lighthouse, beach, water person, you’re sure to find tons to love from Memory Box!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m finally getting our oldest grandson’s birthday card posted!  There is a reason for the colors and the personalized license plate!  He just turned 19, so there’s 19 balloons,  the orange and green balloons represent the two robotics teams he’s been on and the black truck because he has a black car! lol

I had so much fun playing with this Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Die set.  So glad I bought it!  I can’t wait to use it for Christmas especially but this was really fun! I die cut 19 balloons and inked the edges with coordinating ink and the ink blending tool.

The light reflection pieces on the balloons are die cut vellum. The die cut for that comes with the Balloon die set linked below.

I did make the license plate myself.  I printed the name out on the computer and it is his actual license plate.

Quite a bit of dimension but it still fits in an A2 envelope.  I would use an A6 envelope if I was putting it in the mail.

The Birthday Pennant die is discontinued but the Birthday Letters are still available…link below.

The sky is definitely the limit with this set! So many great things ahead for Ethan.  Exciting but so hard to believe 19 years have gone by since he was born! So proud of him!

Thanks for stopping by!

Up To Snow Good! Last Snowmen for this Winter…

Hi everyone!  I say this every month don’t I?  How’d it get to be _________!  In this case, March!  I still have Winter new stuff to stamp and play with! haha  Add it to the stuff from other years, right?!  Anyway, this is to cute not to post quick!

This card and the tag coming up are from the Snow Buds set by Essentials By Ellen.

Pattern Paper is from Lawn Fawn.

Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles are a staple for me!  You can find them at Starlitstudio.net, HERE. (it looks like they’re out of stock, the link to contact Cindy is at the very top of the page, if you want to order them)

Doodlebug Twine, another staple… HERE.

I just love snow and snowmen and cute snowman sentiments!  AND in this case paper snowballs! ha

Then I cut so many, I made a tag quick too…still have a bunch for another go ’round.  ❤

I’ll just call him pail head!  I guess all the hats are being used. haha I had to add hearts for buttons.

The love tag is from poppystamps.

It’s almost that time of year to say good-bye Winter.  These guys are gonna melt! lol  Thanks for stopping by and hope we made you smile!

poppystamps Masculine Card Today…

Hello! How about a Spring-y looking man card today!

I had some inky fun with this poppystamps Mountain Hills Plate.  I love that you get the ⅛ inch frame that cuts separate with this die!  And really, you could use any of the 3 scene parts by themselves too, the middle section – just partial die cut it then trim with the paper trimmer the rest of the way down.  😀

TIP:  If you have trouble lining up your panel on the front of your card evenly, just lay down this ⅛ inch frame cut on your A2 card base and eyeball that panel right down inside it!  My eyeballs need a lot of help! lol

I die cut it in white heavy cardstock, inked it with distress oxide inks, spattered with a little water (I like to spray a puddle of water in the palm of my left hand, then rub my hands together and clap over the card so the blobs aren’t huge) then adhered the panels to a card base.

The top blue sky is glued directly to the base.  The middle panel is adhered with thin mounting squares.  The bottom panel is adhered with regular mounting squares.

It’s not quite time for dandelions here but I love putting them on cards! lol  Which is crazy because in my mind, I don’t like yellow.  I use it but sparingly it seems. lol

I grabbed some old paper punches…I’ve kept all of mine.  I used to use them a lot for paper piecing, so fun!  I can’t part with my collection! Who am I kidding?!  No one would want them anyway! lol oh, back on track.  I used a mini flower and mini branch for these dandelions.

The little flowers from this die would work! Flower Meadow Background

Several stems from floral dies would work too! Florals

Then a few little puffy Memory Box clouds in the sky!  A beautiful day in the neighborhood!  If you live in Alaska. hehe

I love the new poppystamps Birthday Blowout stamp set… fab sentiments, this birthday one, enjoy your day, sending birthday wishes, for a very special someone and SIX MORE!  Really nice set!

Something for a guy in your life!

Little Boy Birthday Card and Some Valentine ATCs…

Family Birthday time Sunday afternoon!  This is our youngest grandson Charles. hehe. He doesn’t like his picture taken any better than Grandma does!

He loves playing in his kinetic dirt with this big machinery so I had to make a fitting birthday card for him. So cute!

I tore and inked (Gathered Twigs Distress ink) some kraft cardstock for the hills.  I sponged the clouds with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and a cloud stencil, it’s an old one, I think from Rosie’s Roadshow stamp co.

The panel is ATC size, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  I matted it with black cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink.

Loads of Love is from a Taylored Expressions stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink also.

I used two Memory Box dies, one is still available, the Mighty Dump Truck.  The Little Dozer die is from 2016 and is now discontinued.  For some reason I ordered 3 of that die! ugh.  So I have one to sell if someone wants it $4. (EDA – SOLD)  Email me at the contact tab under the blog title at the top of the page. I can send it in a 5×7 envelope for one postage stamp I bet, unless you want tracking. Dump truck, links below.

We had a super fun party. Youngest and Oldest grandson’s birthdays and Valentines!  I’ll be back with oldest’s card another day.
