A couple more Memory Box Aster cards…

Two cards today from the same dies but oriented differently…this one I used  the Stitched Aster Panel more like a frame and went horizontal so the words would fit. I really like this word die. lol

I die cut in Memory Box White notecards, colored everything with Copic Sketch Markers and mounted them to a Memory Box Chipboard notecard.

Oh, I cut more of each of the Stitched Aster Blooms die from white, colored them the same and layered them on top of the panel.

I die cut Wishing You Manuscript die three times, glued them together and adhered it in the center.

On the inside I die cut the Happy Birthday Friendship Script and layered it on a stitched rectangle

The heart was just laying on my desk leftover from Valentines Day I guess, so I stuck it on! hehe

Die Cut Divas – May Flowers

This next card is back to the White Aster similar to what I posted on Tuesday.

I embossed a piece of kraft card-stock with Hobby Lobby’s woodgrain embossing folder, taped it to an A2 Memory Box white notecard then glued on  two die cut and colored Stitched Aster Panels keeping the frame to the center on both.  Kinda gives the impression of a gatefold card and it could easy be a gatefold, I just didn’t want to make it that because it’s too hard to get a picture of. Excuses, excuses, haha  Die cut some Stitched Aster Blooms to add more petals to the flowers.

I cut the Dazzling Dragonfly die from vellum and white card-stock.  I colored the vellum pieces on the back side with Copic Sketch Markers. For the body I taped the vellum over the white cut and glued it to the wings.

I added Nuvo drops to the little buds. I think that’s it for these two cards…holler if you have any questions.

Simon Says Stamp May Release – Cherished…

Two cards to share with you today! Simon Says Stamp sent me their new Big Perfect Shapes stamp and die set to create with for this month’s release.

I die cut the hexagon shape in the die set several times and taped them to a piece of black 4.25 x 5.5 inch card-stock. Then I cut that piece using their Stitched Rectangles die.

I die cut the Painted Happy Birthday die from black and white card-stock and layered them up 3 deep.

The bee is one of Memory Box’s dies, Plush Baby Bumble die.  I double cut the body and wings from white and yellow card-stock, the the other pieces are a single layer from black card-stock. The eyes are Nuvo Drops.

A bit of black/white twine, some white dots with a Sharpie and PPP clear sequins and it was done!

My next card uses the square stamp and square die from the sets…

I stamped the squares with Altenew Coral Berry ink and overstamped the floral design from Roses for You stamp set with Altenew Ruby Red ink, then die cut the squares with the square die from the Big Perfect Shapes set .

Wishing is die cut and layered three times and the sentiment heat embossed in white powder on black card-stock and trimmed. Oh man, I forgot to try adding an enamel dot! lol

Pure Innocence Spring Friends and Rubiks cube birthday cards…

Family birthday time again…we had our party at the area lake yesterday afternoon for 4 family members.  Two of the cards I’ve already posted so here’s the other two!

I love this sweet Pure Innocence Spring Friend stamp set and die set from MFT stamps. It was perfect for our granddaughter Anya’s 12th birthday!

I used sentiments from Taylored Expressions Free Spirit stamp set, inked with TE Oreo ink pad and the MISTI stamping tool.

She’s colored with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set also from MFT stamps. I stamped her with the MISTI and Oreo ink too.

I mounted the images on an A2 Top fold card base.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – A Hint of Pink

Seize the Birthday  Challenge – Anything Goes

Next up is the card I made for our grandson Lane’s 15th birthday. A handsome guy that loves to do Rubiks cube and is very fast at it.  His fastest time is 20 seconds! Amazing!

I used the Memory Box Modern Tile die to get my cubes, die cutting from  black and trimming out the 9 squares to make the cubes. Then I die cut it 5 times with multiple colors.  I just cut squares of card-stock so I only cut the required number of squares.

The sentiment on the front and message (you’re awesome) on the inside are from the Taylored Expressions Bold Brushstrokes stamp set.  A perfect set for teens!  Stamped with the MISTI and TE Oreo stamp pad again…love the bold black image you can get with multiple inking and stamping.  YAY MISTI!

Memory Box Umbels dies birthday card…

Hello! These colors…just scream Spring, don’t they?  I’m sure you have it already figured out that I ink blended Distress Oxide inks for the background, the stems and butterfly on this card. The background is Broken China with a teeny bit of Cracked Pistachio here and there…love those two together…then the water drops.

I masked the white tops and butterfly with scrap paper while I was inking the stems.  In the end though, I went over the blooms with the white signo gel pen!  If you were in a hurry you could easy skip the coloring with ink pads and just die cut with colored card-stock! lol  You know, like we used to before we went ink crazy! lol

I love this new wishing you manuscript die.  I cut it three times in black and glued them together.  The happy birthday sentiment is from the poppystamps Ornamental Butterfly stamp set.

I know I’m gonna take some flack for this next picture! hehe  These flowers on this card remind me of dandelions when they’re ready to ‘poof’! lol  Anyway, I was over at one of our daughter’s a couple weeks ago and snapped this picture when the granddaughter’s showed me this irregular dandelion.  I thought is was so cool! It’s like a pom pom!  And since pom poms are so popular right now… I thought I’d share! Shoot me now… I kinda like dandelions! lol

I better tell you what dies I used for the flowers and corners on this card! From left to right I used Tall Umbels Left Corner, Adelaide Stem, Umbel Butterfly and Tall Umbels Right Corner.

This is a 5 inch square top fold card. Almost one layer…should mail easy! yay!

5 Memory Box and poppystamps Spring cards…

Hi everyone!  Five cards to share today with a variety of dies from the January release

The first card is the Backyard tree die…I made it up on the new chipboard card base with gesso and distress paints… the grass is really greener in real life.  I don’t have the card anymore so I couldn’t take the picture over.

This is the Sketch Floral die and Thank you Manuscript die.

Doodlebug White Enamel Dots for accent…

 

 

For this card I used the Ring a Ding Corner die and Happy Bday Pop Culture Cut Out die…

Distress ink blending on Mixed Media card…

For this card I used the Palma Curve die, Stitched Bloom Trio die and Happy Birthday Pop Culture die…

and the last card…

I always have a terrible time taking pictures of pink cards!  So strange!  sorry…they are pretty IRL!

I used the Floral Dotted Border die and Scribble Hello die…

Lots of beautiful dies!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Simon Says Stamp New Release Flora Background Stamp…

Hello! I was so happy to find this new Simon Says Stamp Flora Background stamp from the Mothers, Fathers, and Floral release in my mail box last week!  So pretty and fun to play with!

I have a couple things in mind for it but I ended up here, using the ‘old school’ chalkboard look again! I inked the Flora Background stamp with Versamark ink, in the MISTI and heat embossed it with Ranger Detail White Embossing Powder on black card-stock. I distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz Distressing tool and went around the edges with Picket Fence Distress Paint.

I die cut the Single Roses, Banner and Painted Happy Birthday dies from heavy white card-stock.

I used three of the new Distress Oxide Inks. Pressed the pad to my craft mat, spritzed it with water and smooshed the flowers, leaves and banner in the different colors. I dried them in between smooshes with my heat tool.  I know…that sounds funny! lol

I looked through my Doodlebug Sprinkles and ended up using three of the matte colors…I like the matte finish with the oxide ink.

I attached the Birthday cuts to the banner with skinny cuts of foam mounting tape.  I love that the letters are thicker and you don’t have to cut and glue multiples together, you can just use mounting tape or squares! yay!

Then I attached the banner to the card with 3L thin mounting squares.  The flowers and leaves were next, 3L regular mounting squares for them.

I adhered the black finished panel to a 5 ½ inch square white card base.

Memory Box Budding Peony and Blooming Peony Stem…

A Happy Birthday Flower card to share with you today! I die cut both flower dies from Mixed Media card-stock twice.  That way I could leave the petals in the cut to ink them with Distress Ink and a Mini Ink Blending Tool. Then I glued the second cut, without the petals though, right over the top! If you have the Distress Markers, they work really good for the small flower center circles.

The background is a Mixed Media card panel that I die cut with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set.  I love that the largest rectangle is A2 size!

Also inked with Distress Inks and the Mini Ink Blending Tools.

Isn’t this Happy Birthday Friendship Script die lovely?  I die cut it a couple times in black card-stock, glued them together and then glued to the card.  Easy to glue with the thicker line weight too!  Score!

Several Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins… the clear are my favorite but you can tell, right?! lol
