poppystamps Flower Patch card and Memory Box Poppy card…


Good Monday to you! I have a couple cards to share with you today…flowers again! Just thinking of you and thank you wishes.

I started with the poppystamps Flower Patch stamp and die set…the leaves are stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with Distress Inks.  I stamp, die cut, then color the images.

The flowers are stamped with the MISTI stamping tool on white card-stock with Altenew inks then die cut..

I die cut a Square Basics square die and lightly ink blended on some Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks. I read this morning that there are 12 more colors of Oxides coming soon!  oh no, make room for more!  help! lol

I die cut the next size up Square Basics die in an olive green-ish card-stock and matted the inked square on it.

The sentiment is from the So Many Things to Love stamp set. I stamped it with the MISTI stamping tool onto white cardstock, then die cut it with the smallest Rectangle Basics die.

I mounted the panel with craft foam to a 5 ½ inch square card-base.

 

Next up…Memory Box famous Poppy dies!

Here I combined the Tall Poppy Right Corner, the Tall Poppy Left Corner with the older Prim Poppy in the center.  I die cut in white card-stock and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. (Dick Blick link in sidebar)


I die cut white card-stock with the Shaker Rectangle Frames, put strips of mounting tape behind the frame.

The center cut from the die, I ink blended on some Fozzilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and spattered it with water droplets.

I glued the corners behind the frame and the stems are glued directly to the panel.  The poppy heads have the thin mounting squares behind them to give a little dimension.

The Thank You Manuscript die is cut three dies, glued together and glued to the front over the stems.

A little bit of Doodlebug Washi tape on the left side of an A2 card-base, just cuz I like/love black and white stripes! hehe

I’m linking my poppy card to some challenges…

Memory Box Forest Branch Collage and Enchanted Deer Collage Card and Video…

Hi everyone! A card and a video to share today. I love all the dies Memory Box has come out with for layering die cuts and these two really lend themselves to the tunnel card look!  I’m always so happy when I get to use kraft and brown ink too! lol

Here’s a couple close ups of the dimension you can achieve with just the 2mm craft foam between the two layers…still perfectly mailable in an A2 envelope!

Here’s a sped up video with no sound. hehe I tried adding music but it wasn’t long enough for the video and I couldn’t figure out how to add more. You Tube’s video manager threatens to add ads to your video if you use it. ugh. sigh. They have to pay for all the HUGE and I mean HUGE buildings they are building north of us for Google and all things connected, Facebook etc. If you’re traveling across Iowa ever on Interstate 80, you won’t miss them!

Now for the not fancy video! lol  Hey, at least it’s in living color! hoho

 

Holler if you have any questions…

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.

Memory Box Stitched Aster Corner and Blooms…

Hello!  The sentiment on this card describes this time of your perfectly, agree? It’s so green here and the few flowers I have, in pots, are looking good! hehe

Ugh, I couldn’t just use this Stitched Aster corner die in the corners…oh no, I had to tip one upside down and use the other standing, dancing on it’s slender stem! lol

I die cut more petals with the Stitched Aster Blooms die to get a sweet daisy look.

I colored the white die cuts with Copic Sketch Markers and mounted them to the chipboard card base with mounting squares just under the flowers. The card edges are inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

The sentiment is stamped and embossed with white embossing powder on a strip of black card-stock.

Linking up to some wonderful challenge blogs…

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.

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, Lawn Fawn and Stampin Up cards…

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with 3 cards to share.  This first one features a sky writin’ airplane from the Flying High Stamp set!  So cute…colored it with Copic Sketch markers. The clouds are from the coordinating Flying High die set. I just used the cloud dies from the set without stamping them.

The background is the new Cool Cloud Collage die.  So many ‘cool’ ways to use it!

The banners are the new Birthday Pennant die…I die cut in white card-stock and colored with a few of the T series Copic Sketch markers.

Sweet Stampin’ Challenge – I wish I could fly (airplane is stamped and colored)

 

Next up is a scene that I started when these stamps came out…I just ‘unearthed’ it on one of my desks I was cleaning off.  It just needed colored and put together!  yay

I fell in love with this You Make Life Fun stamp set and coordinating die set. The grass is inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the ink blending tool and the sky is inked with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress ink and the ink blending tool. (I must’ve used another green ink on the grass too because Peeled Paint is a better green than this. lol  Next time I’ll use Mowed Lawn!)

I colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers… so easy and fun… click on the pictures to see it full size.  This card fits in a business size A10 envelope.

I love these cute new cloud dies!  I stamped the sentiment on the front with Lawn Fawn Walnut ink in the MISTI stamping tool.

Memory Box Watching the World Bloom Wreath…

Hi friends! I see so many photos and read so many posts/threads here and there right now, of all the excitement of new life that Spring brings, the blessing of why we have Easter which brings me to why I love this card!

Happiness is watching the world bloom around us!

I colored the wreath with some quick, basic Copic coloring…die cut the wreath, from the coordinating die set, in a square rectangle layers panel. I mounted it with foam tape so there would be a fair amount of dimension but still be snail mail friendly.

I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and wrapped it over the top square layer and adhering it on the back side.

One of my favorite cards I’ve made so far this year!
