Memory Box and poppystamps Christmas cards…

Hi everyone!  Back today with two Christmas cards.  New Memory Box and poppystamps dies.  I love the nature-ish theme of both of these cards.  Kinda unusual colors.  Wish you could see them IRL!

I started out with a 4 ¼ in. x 5 ½ in. panel of kraft card-stock and cut the largest layer of the Spectacular Joy die set in it. I inked it a little with Distress Forest Moss and the ink blending tool. The next size smaller Joy is die cut from a piece of Memory Box Cranberry notecard.  The detail Joy die is cut in metallic gold card-stock.

The kraft panel is mounted with foam adhesive tape to an A2 kraft card-base. Then the JOY words are glued in the die cut JOY hole.

The Pine Needle Clearing die is cut from another  kraft panel and inked with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress inks and the ink blending tools.  I used one half a sheet of copy paper to shim while cutting this Pine Needle die… cut blades up and angle a bit and success!.

Mounting foam tape on the back of this panel too and adhered on top of the JOY panel.  I used the Scotch foam adhesive tape because it is pretty thin, it’ll be in the links below.

That JOY piece that I cut out of the first kraft panel?  I used that as a mask when I spattered the gold spray on. Because of course I didn’t think to do that until after I was done. ugh. lol

I die cut the largest Pointed Rectangle Frames die from Memory Box Cranberry card-stock and glued it on top of the Pine Needle Clearing panel.

The Holly Twig die is cut twice from kraft card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I love this Holly Twig die, pretty made up to match any style.

Next up…

 The Dancing Snowflake Oval die cut and embossed in white card-stock and layered over the top of the Tall Pine Oval that is die cut from a Parsley notecard. (I die cut the Tall Pine Oval in white too, left the little pieces in it so when I glued the Parsley cut over the top, it looked like snow in the holes) I did use strips of the Scotch foam mounting tape behind the Snowflake so there’d be just a hint of lift.

I die cut the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die from a Pool note-card, then taped it to a full Pool note-card.

I stamped one of the clear stamps from the Poinsettia Surprise Clear stamp set in the corners with Lawn Fawn Merman ink using the MISTI stamping tool.


I glued on some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and the sentiment die Warm Winter Wishes.  It’s two layers of white glued together and a few pieces of foam mounting tape cut thin on the back in a few of the wider places.

Then I sprayed the whole thing with Frosted Sheer Shimmer Spritz. It’s really easy to see IRL.  Hopefully this next picture shows it well.  All my photos enlarge if you click on them.

Colorful Rainbow cards to share today…

Hi everyone!  Two clean and simple cards I made for stamp club last Friday.  Annette had the program and she had rainbow for the theme.  These are the two cards I made…one to swap and one for Annette’s birthday card.

I used the poppystamps paintbrush die, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, a Taylored Expressions brush rubber stamp, You color my world is from a new poppystamps stamp set, inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped with the MISTI.  I stamped the brush stamp with Regular Distress Inks.  I centered the stamp on the lid of the MISTI and moved the card to stamp the different colors.  I did stamp each color two and three times to get the bold color.

Both cards are A2 top folding card bases, almost one layer!

The bike is a new Spellbinders die cut in heavy white card-stock…run it through with the tan mat a second time so it embosses nicely.

The street and the stitched rectangle are from a MFT blueprints die set, the butterflies are an old Marvy punch…sorry I didn’t have time to look for a die but I’ll see if I can find something similar to link to and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Thanks for stopping by on this fine Tuesday!  I’ll be back soon with more of you know what! lol  Have a creative, colorful week!

Memory Box Dashing With Reindeer Slider card…

Hi everyone!  Here to share this sweet little scene using the NEW Dashing With Reindeer stamp and die set from Memory Box.  Snow always looks so beautiful…too bad it’s usually cold too! hoho

I had fun inking a Distress Oxide Salty Ocean sky with the ink blending tool and then spattering with water and soaking it up with a paper towel.

TIP: I like to spray water in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and then clap over where I want it, to get the small size dots. I do that a few times.

I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the MISTI, then die cut the images with the Big Shot, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I don’t like to color first…cuz of the chance of messing up the die cutting.

TIP: If you don’t like handling that small of a piece…tack it with repositionable tape to a larger piece of card-stock so it doesn’t seem so fiddly while you’re coloring!  😀

I die cut the longest NEW Straight Slider Grooves die in the bottom snow bank that was cut with the NEW Stitched Curves die. I used a one of the other Stitched Curves dies for the snow bank behind.

Then the Quiet Cabin Landscape die in the background and the Fresh Pine Trio dies at the ends of the slider.

For Santa’s beard I drew squiggly lines with the white gel pen. The white parts of his hat are white dots with the white gel pen.  I do a layer of dots, let them dry, then do another layer of dots.

Rudolph’s nose is a tiny white pearl that I colored with a Copic Sketch Marker R89.

I stuck Santa and his reindeer on a piece of acetate so they’d slide together in the groove… yes, they are wireless reindeer!  Remote Controlled today! hohoho

poppystamps Autumn Fairies and Brilliant Leaf Frame die…

Hi everyone! An Autumn card to share today. Colorbook therapy with stamping and pencils.

I die cut the frame in Kraft card-stock, colored the leaves and inserted them back in the frame from the back and used Scotch mounting tape strips/cut to fit, to hold the leaves in place.

She’s so cute! Yes, I did change her eyes a bit because I was outlining them with black after coloring and didn’t stay on the line, so I had to ‘fix’ them. I did glitter her wings with some glitter pen.

Don’t you love the acorn house? Tiny houses are all the rage! I could never live in one! eek! This set is so fun! I love it!

I inked the edges of everything with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I love how the leaves in the stamp and die sets match the Brilliant Leaf Frame die.  So many possibilities!   The Leaf Frame die is available now and the stamp and die sets are coming soon in the September release…arriving in stores Friday or this weekend!  yay!

The gold splats are Heidi Swapp metallic gold spray… link below.

Hope she made you smile!  Thanks for stopping by!  I love hearing from you and thank you so much for your visits and comments!  I appreciate it!

Memory Box Beautiful Chancery Snowflake dies..

Hello everyone!  I love die cutting like this! Remember my wreath card HERE?!  I think I need to make it up in Christmas colors too! lol

Such a pretty way to send a festive card!

Here’s what these dies look like cut normally…

I used the Outline to cut the white top panel and the turquoise glitter card-stock. I die cut the Chancery Snowflake in gold glitter card-stock and glued it on top of the turquoise outline die cut.

The top white panel is cut with the new Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die too…the largest one is 4 ¼ in. x 5 ½ in.  I used 3mm thick mounting strips that I made with 3 mm white foam and scor tape, cut into strips.

TIP:  If you own a MISTI, you can take the black foam out of it, put your card base in the bottom corner, then put your top panel on top.  Using the MISTI corner helps get that top panel lined up and on straight! yay!

I used the new Brush Merry Christmas die for the sentiment.  Die cut 2 times in white and the top layer in white glitter card-stock.  Glued together with Lineco liquid glue in the little Ultrafine glue bottles with the pins in the top.  So far I like them! Links below.

Some baby size turquoise gems and that’s it for this card! I want to think of some more things to do with this snowflake duo!

SSS STAMPtember Carol Singers card…

Rockin’ the carols this morning cardmakers! lol  This cute trio is from the new set for STAMPtember from Simon Says Stamp. Oh what fun!

I stamped with the new Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut them out with the Scan and Cut 350 then colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  The kitty is the YR20 series… the bear is the E40 series and the bunny the T gray series. The bear’s jeans are the B90’s, his sweater is R46 and R89, the sweater trim is BG45 and 49 and the green in the sweater is YG03 and 17.  The bunny’s scarf is the YG0 series and the coat is R46 and R89 again.  The kitty’s dress is the YG0 series too.  The birdie is BG45 and 49 again.

The sky is Distress Oxide Salty Ocean applied with the mini ink blending tool and spattered with some water drops that I heat set with the heat tool.  I didn’t dab up the water.

The sentiment is from the same set. I stamped with the TH platform using Versafine Black Onyx ink.

The snowy background pieces are die cut with the SSS Stitched Slopes and Hills dies.

I trimmed the background and the snow borders to 4 in. x 5 ¼ in., adhered the sky and back border flat to the card base and mounted the front snow border with 3L mounting squares.  The characters are mounted with foam squares also.  The bunny with thin ones, the bear and kitty with regular ones.

Then I stamped on the music notes using an acrylic block. I still need to put a sentiment inside.  I always procrastinate stamping the inside. ugh.  I’m always sorry when I go to sending the cards out too! lol

I’m hoping to spend the day making cards! Lots of NEW from Memory Box/poppystamps and NEW from Printworks too!

Thank you for stopping by and oh, I didn’t use a wobble after-all.  They looked funny stuck out too far. oh well, maybe if I’d just used the bear…

ttul!

poppystamps Rudolph Collage, Greenery Bundle and a tip…

Hi everyone!  Have you seen this Rudolph Collage die yet?  What did you think of when you saw it?  Well, first thing I thought was ‘thumbprint’!  So that’s what I did. I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to print my thumb.

I die cut in white, kept the circles and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and coated them with Ranger Glossy Accents.

His glittery red nose is a glitter dome…linked below. I die cut a kraft color circle for behind and inked it with Distress Oxide inks, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and the ink blending tool.

Merry and Bright are from the Christmas Greetings stamp set.  I did stamp surgery, they go right back together.  : )  Inked, stamped with the MISTI and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I die cut the Ava Snowflakes and Greenery Bundle in white card-stock.  I colored the Greenery Bundle with Copic Sketch Markers and yes, I remembered to take a picture of the back to show how I placed the foam mounting squares!  This is how I hold the pieces in place.

Holler if you have any questions about it…

This is an A2 size card.
