Memory Box Pine Candle Oval Frame…

Hey everyone! I didn’t think I could do this alcohol thing! At stamp club Friday, Linda from club did a demo and we played. This morning I did this by myself!  The ink really spreads on yupo though…I wanted to try little dots of ink…hmmmm… lol  Big dots worked though! lol Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Lettuce and Oregano are the colors I used.  Then a little gold foil.  I just gambled on getting the foil on there.  If any of you know a video you can point me too on getting the foil on there… email it to me.

This is about as artsy as I get! lol

I had the die cut white to begin with, then a friend told me to put gold foil around the flame and I was like, “no way” am I going to get glue near that! lol  So I die cut the Pine Candle Oval Frame die in gold foil cardstock then and glued it over the white ones.  There are two white ones in the stack because I got a smudge on the first one so I had to cut another and glue it on. lol  Oh the trials! haha

Linking my alcohol ink card to some challenges…

CAS Christmas Card Challenge 

This next one is a Distress Oxide background…

A lot of pictures today!  This one, I die cut an oval with the Sudio Oval Layers die set… it matches the size of the Pine Candle Oval Frame die.  Using the mini Ink Blending tools, I inked on the NEW Distress Oxide Ink pad colors, starting at the top with Mustard Seed, then Barn Door (I brought it up and around the Mustard Seed a little, then came back in with Mustard Seed, back and forth a little to get them blended) then Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive on the buttom!  I was really happy with how the colors blended and worked with this die cut!

I stamped peace on earth on a strip of white cardstock that I inked with Barn Door Oxide and let dry.  Then stamped on it with Archival black ink in the MISTI.

A few little sequins to finish it off… oh wait,  I did spatter it with Barn Door regular Distress ink.  I just swiped a little ink from the pad onto my Tonic craft mat, one spritz of water and a #4 soft paintbrush to spatter it.  TIP: I don’t know about you but spattering seems like an art to me too!!!  grrr  BUT  I think I’m finally on to something with this #4 soft bristle paintbrush!  It works the best of any I’ve tried so far and I’ve tried a lot!   SO don’t give up!  Find a brush that does what you want it to do.  I’m convinced it’s all about the brush!

The white spatters are a spray… I’ll link to it below.  I just poured a little on my craft mat and picked it up with that wonder paintbrush (hehe) and spattered it on.  I probably should’ve heat set my oxide inks first.  I wonder if the white would’ve stayed whiter? SO, the saga continues as to what is what!

p.s. my paintbrush is a #4 US Artquest paintbrush.   I love my US Artquest brushes.  I will look and see if I can find them to link to. (EDA – found them, link below! I love the other brushes in the set too!)

Linking my Oxide card up to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Distress it (I used Distress Oxide inks)

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Sprinkles and Splatters

ABC Christmas Challenge – P, Q & R are for?  (mine is P for plain)

Well, I’m gonna shut up.  If you have any questions holler!

Thank you again for coming over! Are you going to try these? hehe  I hope so! I jumped in, so now you gotta jump in! lol

Here’s some links to what I use to make cards and what I used to make these two in particular!  Have fun!

Waffle Flower Sandy Toes, Neat and Tangled Hello Summer Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Switching it up completely today with a Summer birthday card.  When I saw this Waffle Flower Sandy Toes stamp set I HAD to have it cuz it’s so much like our kids boating and swimming.  Then I saw Channin’s video using this set and I was thrilled with her card and wanted to sit down and make it right away! I didn’t have the paints she used at the time and used Oxide inks instead.  Excuse to go shopping, which I did, but then life happened and I just finally finished this up with the sentiments and gluing it together yesterday. Thank you so much Channin!

How triumphant this flippin’ flip flop guy is that it’s Summer!  (I don’t like hot and humid, so just send me pictures of the fun, thank you! lol)

I painted the characters with Zig Clean Color Brush markers on watercolor paper.  Contrary to most that love painting on Bristol with these,  I prefer coldpress watercolor paper, figures huh. lol

Such fun… this card just makes a person celebrate living, you know!  I’m trying to learn…Summer is a state of mind. haha hehe

This is an A2 size card and will be a very belated birthday card.

Linking up below to what I used and thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of this fleeting Summer!  I feel like the year is dashing by at warp speed, whatever that is!  Where’s the time to feel the sand between your toes, I gotta make cards! haha

3 Memory Box Wrapped Holly Circle Frame Cards With NEW Holiday Dies!


Hi everyone! I couldn’t decide what card to post first!  So I went with the ‘glam’! lol

Here’s the NEW Wrapped Holly Circle Frame die from Memory Box with the NEW Three Candle Circle die in the center!  There’s several dies in the release that can be used as centers!

I couldn’t resist using the NEW Candlelit SHINE die on the bottom.

TIP: I worked on a 4 ¼ inch x 5 ½ inch panel so I could die cut the SHINE die right in the bottom of the panel.  I left the white letters in the panel, scotched taped them in on the back, that gave me an easy, perfect way to line up the individual letters when I glued the gold glitter die cut letters on top of the white ones!

I used Antique Linen Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool to ‘age’ the edges and around the flame.

Then I glued that panel to the A2 size card base.

I used Mark Richards 3mm red glitter domes for the berries.

 

Next one…I used the same dies but inked the pieces with the NEW Distress Oxide ink colors.

Barn Door on the outer ring and candles.  I did use a Copic R27 to color the outline of the candle so there’d be more contrast.

Mowed Lawn and a little Crushed Olive smooshed on for the Holly Frame.  White and Gold gel pens for the berries and flame.

I die cut a circle with the Circle Basics die set and inked it with Tumbled Glass, then smooshed on a little Peacock Feathers.

Glue the Holly to the circle, then I mounted it with foam mounting tape to the kraft A2 size card base.  The outer ring is glued flat with PVA glue and the pin top Darice glue bottle.

The sentiments are from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments clear stamp set!  LOVE it!  Inked and stamped with Ranger Archival black ink pad.  Edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.

 

My 3rd card using this NEW Wrapped Holly Circle Frame die is a 4 ½ inch square card.

This die is so classy die cut in Gold Foil cardstock!  I love it this way.  I embossed the holly circle frame in the teal cardstock, inked it a little with Distress Peacock Feathers ink pad and the mini ink blending tool then glued the gold foil diecut holly circle frame over the embossing.  Hard to capture in a photo but it just tweaks it and gives a feeling of depth.

For the center on this card, I die cut the NEW Pine Tree Deer Collage die in the gold foil/mirror cardstock, then using a matching center size circle from the Circle Basics die set, I die cut the head and antlers of the deer so they’d fit perfectly in the center!  Cool beans! hahahahahaha

The teal square is die cut with the Stitched Square Layers die set and the red square is die cut with the Square Basics die set.

I die cut the NEW Peace Cheshire Script die in gold foil and red cardstock.  I glued them together offsetting just a bit so some of the red would show.

I added some Want 2 Scrap red gemstones here and there on the berries.

The layers were adhered to a 4 ½ inch square card base.

Whew, this was a lot for one post, but I wanted you to see all three at one time. 😀  I’m excited to use all the NEW Holiday release.  I can’t wait to see what everyone else makes too!

Here’s the NEW Holiday release at Starlitstudio.net and Simon Says Stamp.com

Folk Dance Die from SSS Friendly Frolic New Release…

Hi everyone!  AWESOME new release up at Simon Says Stamp!  They sent me the Folk Dance die to create with…here’s what I came up with this time around!

I die cut a piece of copy paper to make a stencil…

Used the stencil to ink up a card panel with Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint  Distress Oxide Inks and the mini ink blending tools. Sprinkled on Clear Embossing powder and heat set.

Then I die cut a card panel of 110# Neenah Solar White and layered/glued it over the top of the inked panel.

Tied on some pink twine…glued that to a top folded card base.

Die cut a Double Stitch Rectangle from poppystamps…inked the interior cut with Peeled Paint Oxide ink…

Die cut SSS Painted Thanks die two dies from the same white and glued them together and mounted them to the rectangle with mounting tape.

Have fun checking out the NEW RELEASE HERE!  

A big thanks for visiting my blog today and thanks for your wonderful comments too!  I appreciate them so much and love hearing from you!

poppystamps Tall Sketch Daisies Card…

Hi awesome cardmakers and friends!  I started out with the new poppystamps Tall Sketch Daisies and of course I needed words to go along… the new Memory Bos Awesome Jotted Script fit the bill!  The cut apart clear stamped and embossed accessory sentiments came from the poppystamps Sentiments of Hello clear stamp set.

Here’s a side view and you can see I popped up the flower heads with a little foam mounting tape, the words too.

The pattern paper piece is from Carta Bella, the Spring Market 6×6 paper pad.  The die cut frame is from poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames.  I like it a lot!

A close up of the top… a little white gel pen detail here and there.  A few matte enamel dots…

Memory Box Astro Suit and Starry Sky Border Dies Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m kinda late getting in on the galaxy background trend!  One of our granddaughters made this one for me one day when she was over playing with Color Burst Powders!  So fun she made me one to use!  You know how it is parting with stuff you make sometimes!  😀

This little Astro Suit die makes up so cute.  I kinda got carried away with silver embossing powder… I really like the card though.  A lot of silver but it gets the message across!  You are a star, in case you didn’t know that! haha

I did add some of the clear Goosebumps Spray, I’ll link it up below if I can find it somewhere.  Mirror card for the die cut Deep Space Planets that he’s standing on and the Starry Sky Border die cut into the Galaxy Background watercolor piece.

The Border die is the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die from poppystamps.

I die cut the flesh in card-stock and a piece of acetate.  Adhered them together with a squish of Ranger Glossy Accents.

Some spatters of Heidi Swapp Gold Spray and I finally quit!  hehe

Not my usual card making style but fun and I’m sure I’ll use it at some point…everyone needs to know they are a star!

Thanks for stopping by! and thanks Lilli for the background! Happy soaking up the sun to you!
