poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil Card…

Hi everyone!  We interrupt the Christmas cards for a Fall card! It’s getting close to that time, when the leaves start changing and definitely dance in the wind!

I love this pretty NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame.  I laid the stencil over the die cut and inked the leaves with regular Distress Inks and the mini ink blender tools. The colors I used were Forest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

Then I laid the stencil over the actual thin metal die and using the ink pad, tapped some ink onto the leaf vein lines.  Then I put the die cut back in the metal die and pressed the paper into the lines…that’s how I ended up with ink in the veins here and there. They look like dying leaves! lol

I die cut a rectangle background piece to fit behind the frame with the Memory Box Basic Rectangles dies.  I inked it with Distress ink also and did some water spatters, let it dry and then gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear stamp set.

I was going to just add some gold cord and tie a bow but it hit me to try wrapping the cord up the side of the die cut!  I liked it a lot and thought it made the leaves truly look like they were dancing in the wind! YAY!

I hope you’re having fun being creative these days… it’s been all hot and muggy again here…makes it easy to stay inside!

Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box Winter Greenery Meets Wreath builder and Snowflake Marquee Cards…

A little more festive to share with you today! One of the smaller branches in the NEW Winter Greenery stamp set was calling my name, wanting to become a wreath! I love how it worked out!

Using the MISTI and the Wreath builder template this is what I came up with.

I stamped the branch around with Taylored Expressions Peapod Premium Ink Pad on Neenah 110# Solar White Cardstock.

Then I stamped with an acrylic block, the set of three circles from the NEW Mistletoe Swag stamp set, with Versamark ink and Judikins gold embossing powder.

The sentiments I stamped in the MISTI and gold embossed also.  I really like this card…my first try, I made the circles red and that’s pretty too! lol  Me and red berries lately! lol  I love that it’s festive and flat for mailing!

 

This glittery, festive card is flat also!  Great for mailing! I tried to capture the sparkle of the glitter cardstock but even though it’s sparkly here, it is so much more sparkly in real life!

I die cut the NEW Marquee Snowflake die in both colors, inlaid the pieces, taped it on the back, die cut the panel with the Memory Box postage rectangle frame and glued it to the red glitter A2 size panel.

The word die Peace Cheshire Script is layered three times and I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW Tidings Wreath stamp set on a strip of vellum.

I love this NEW Snowflake Marquee die…gotta see what else I can come up with using it!

Memory Box Mistletoe Swag and Winter Greenery…

Hi everyone! Pull out some plaid and stick on some greenery!  I was inspired by the sketch on one of the current card challenges, link at the end of my post.

I die cut two of the circle from the NEW Stylish Frame Trio set, in Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock. I inked them a little with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.  I just kinda ‘stomped’ color onto them.

The plaid is from a couple years ago…I’ll try to find some current plaid to link to.

I stamped 4 of the smaller branch in the NEW Mistletoe Swag clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic x-press it coloring cardstock using the MISTI stamping tool. There aren’t any dies for this stamp set so I used my scan and cut machine but you could easy cut them by hand.  I like to cut by hand but the S and C works really nice with the grandkids…I can’t cut fast enough for them! lol

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers…some bright greens!  YG03, 06, 09 and 17.  The berries are R14, 17, 29 and 59.

I stamped up a bunch of branches from the NEW Winter Greenery stamp set using Lawn Fawn’s Jalapeño ink pad.  Then I die cut them all out with the coordinating dies.  They matched up and cut really easy and nice.  I have some left over for a couple more cards!

The ‘warm wishes’ sentiment is from the Winter Greenery set also… I love this scripty font!  So festive!  I cut the sentiment with the MISTI Cut Align Ruler and the plaid mat behind it with the ruler also.

 

Here’s the sketch I was talking about…fun cards/inspiration!

I’m linking my card to the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

Memory Box Mistletoe Swag Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Have you seen the new stamp sets from Memory Box?  So fun to stamp and color!  I started out with this new Mistletoe Swag set but I had red on the brain and you’ll have to excuse my lapse in coloring the berries red here.  It is now some kind of Winter red berry!  I know…. I’m rolling my eyes at myself too.

I colored with Distress Ink reinkers…festive berries and peeled paint. The background is Tumbled Glass.

I spattered with white and blue ink, then sprayed the whole thing with Frost Shimmer Spray.

So many fun words to combine for sentiments in these sets too.  I stamped in white ink on black and embossed with white powder.

I die cut the smaller snowflake from the new Bauble Snowflake die set and glued them on. Several small clear sequins glued on for sparkle too.

And look at this!  A limited editionSky Blue Big Shot!  I know…swooning over a Big Shot. lol  Well, it’s a beauty! ❤

AND there’s this offer too!

Welp, back to cards for me…hope this finds you all rested up after a labor free weekend. ha.

Thanks for stopping by!

BF-Holiday-Blog-Hop-Social-1200x1200.jpg

If you’ve arrived from Varada Sharma, you’re on the right track! Keep reading to find out about the giveaway and my card!

A chance to win!
To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, September 1st, 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Tuesday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

I’m using the Grand Holiday Cabinet Card die set along with one die from the Layered Thinking of You Woodland Scene die set.

This was fun to make and so beautiful when finished.  I used a cardstock that has a little bit of silver glitter in it.  I watched a couple videos so I’d know how to use the sets to get the layers…I’m amazed at how many ways you can change this up!

I love the dimension…I used a silver and gold metallic pen to accent two of the frames.

The illusion of a Winter Wonderland!

Memory Box Ruffled Poinsettia and poppystamps Festive Noel Cards…

Hi everyone!!!  I’m so excited to get on here and start sharing the cards I’m working on with the NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!  YES!  My favorite time of year!

I had to use this gorgeous NEW Ruffled Poinsettia first!  I LOVE it!  So, so pretty!

I think it’s pretty straight forward but if you have any questions holler!  Nothing new as far as techniques go.

The sentiment is from the NEW clear stamp set called Mistletoe Swag.  I love the images and the name! lol

I die cut the largest shape from the NEW Stylish Frame Trio die set two times and off set them.  They are only glued under the poinsettia.  I’m in love with this set too!  😀

Then I die cut two of the NEW Silverdale Branch and trimmed them down to tuck under the petals.  Yes, I love this die too!

My next card…

This beautiful NEW Festive Noel die from poppystamps is the only die I used on this card!

I die cut it in Gold mirror/foil cardstock and in red glitter cardstock.

The pattern paper is from a few years ago but I’m going to link up some new patterns that I think would work beautifully also!

I used foam tape that I cut down to fit on the back of this… very easy to do because the letters are wide!  YAY!

I got carried away with pictures.. hehe

Noel is an A2 size card and the Ruffled Poinsettia is somewhere between in A6 and A7.  It fill fit in an A7 envelope for sure.

Bring out the Christmas CD’s and start your cardmaking!

Thank you for stopping by!  I’ve been sad to not post yet this week but we had a family deal we had to take care of…not pleasant but now I can make cards again. So thankful for cardmaking and cardmaker friends!  I’ll be back soon!

NEW poppystamps Peony Bouquet Thinking of You Card…

Hi everyone!  Switching gears from cute to floral!  I love this new clear stamp set from poppystamps!  So pretty gold embossed and watercolored with Karin Markers, water and a paintbrush.

I stamped the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp using the Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform on Hobby Lobby Masters Touch watercolor card.  I love using this stamp platform for big stamps because I can leave the stamp on the lid then take just the lid/stamp to the sink to wash it after stamping!  So easy to clean up that way.

I stamped the plaid with Taylored Expressions Premium Dye Ink, first in Pink Champagne and then to get it a little pinker, I inked and stamped it again with Cupcake.  I was trying to match the Karin markers I used for watercoloring.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment with gold embossing powder. Then started coloring!

My Karin Markers (from Poland) were a gift from an amazing, dear, friend back in March. (the dreaded birthday was awesome this year) It looks like Simon Says Stamp is bringing them in but nothing in stock yet.  To see my other card I colored with them, select my Karin Markers category over on the right.  You can use any watercolors to color stamp images though and I plan to do some more with this beautiful image!

Karin Markers are Brush Pens and beautiful for Modern Brush Calligraphy!  I’ve been practicing on that when I sit down at night… pretty fun!  I’ve always enjoyed lettering but have only pursued it a couple times and never kept up with it.  Here’s hoping I do better this time.  It’s fun to do with the grandkids also.

ok – well, I’ll wrap this up and say, thanks for coming over! Hope you feel like coloring now!  I need to keep coloring/practicing! Don’t look at my coloring to close! lol
