Spellbinders July Small Die of the Month Card…

Look at these cute kitties!  I had fun die piecing this set together for this card. It comes with the grass, the sentiment, everything!

I added their little whiskers from a teeny strip of black cardstock. Inked the die cuts with Distress Ink pads and the mini ink blending tool.

I made the ‘polaroid’ frame with a Spellbinders square die cut, then trimmed around it to make the frame.

This will be a birthday card for one of our granddaughters.  They kinda look like they ate too much! hehe

Spellbinders has several monthly clubs, you’ll find the link to join, HERE… so fun!  Great value!

This kit coordinates well with some previous kits and it’s so nice you can still buy them after their month!  I’ll link them up below.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy cardmaking to you!

Two Memory Box Perched Bird Die Cards…

Hi everyone…so many times we need a thinking of you card…when words aren’t enough, maybe a simple thinking of you card will help. Tragedy comes to everyone and when you can’t be there, a card is something tangible we can do.

This card is so CAS (clean and simple), truly lives up to the name and for once didn’t take any time to make!

I doubt that it even needs any explanation!  I did use a little foam mounting tape under the bird. The white die cut is glued directly to the A2 card base.

I stamped Thinking of You from the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp set in the MISTI with Archival black ink.  I’ll link everything up at the bottom of the post.

 

Then I die cut the Perched Bird again from Mixed Media card and watercolored it with Zig Real Brush Pens. The frame from the Splendid Rose Frame the same.

The sentiment this time is from the Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Archival black ink.

I added some twine to doll it up a bit…

See that blue-ish vase in the picture?  My daughter was going to toss it!  I love it! lol  It’s ceramic…perfect picture prop for this card! lol

Thank you for stopping by today. Happy July!

Memory Box Small Fringed Peony, Scribble Leafy Branch Thank You Card…

HELLO!!!  Bright card today! No sunshine here today except on this card! lol

I tried using a Gel Plate for the Smooshed Background on this card.  I put drops of Distress Ink refills on the plate, spritzed it with water and then laid the piece of watercolor paper in it and smooshed!  Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers are the colors I used.  Added spatters with the extra ink.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Small Fringed Peony from three Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock colors and pieced them into a white cut. Then I die cut two more of just the white and glued them on top and liked it better.

I went in with some color pencils for some shadows on the flower petals.  Just enough colorbook therapy to make me happy!

I die cut the new Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background in Bazzill Cardshoppe cardstock and the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline in White cardstock. Layered and glued them together.

I stamped and embossed the images from the new Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set.  I used the MISTI and Gold Embossing Powder.

I added three Doodlebug pearls…sequins might’ve been fun too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your Summer is off to a great start!  Happy papercrafting!

Memory Box Antique Garden Label Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends! I’m making my way through the new Memory Box release.

Today I revisited my Embedding Technique… it’s one of my faves for this type of die! My video explaining the process is HERE.  When I made the video though, we weren’t using as heavy a cardstock as we do now.  Today I used Canson Smooth Bristol in the orange cover pad.  I did it just like the video except that I ran it through my Big Shot and then back.

So cool, I just love the ease of adhering the die this way and the bit of dimension that looks so professional!

 

Some distress oxide inking on the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die cut panel. (die cut and ink this panel before you embed the die cut to it) I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Twisted Citron.

I spattered with water, white paint, spiced marmalade Distress Ink refill and twisted citron Distress Ink refill.

 

I die cut another panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangle and mounted the inked panel to it with mounting tape.

Then adhered it to an A2 card base.

I stamped a sentiment in the Label opening with the MISTI and the Archival Distress Spiced Marmalade Ink pad.  The sentiment is from the poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.

I added a few matte enamel dots.  I like it! lol  Sunshiny, Summery colors!

Thanks for stopping by! Keep making!

Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers Card…

Hi everyone!  A floral card with a big thanks to share with you today.

I stamped this beautiful floral image from SSS Sketched Flowers clear stamp set with Archival Black ink in the MISTI on watercolor paper.

I used the most amazing markers to watercolor with!  Have you heard of the Karin Markers?  They’re from Poland. Just WOW! So cool! I was so surprised and delighted when the pkg arrived at my front door!  A birthday present for me?!  YES!  From an awesome friend!!!  😀 Best Birthday ever!!!  😀

A story I made on Instagram about them… HERE.

They are awesome markers for lettering too.  I’m still working on that… practice, practice!

I spattered and after everything was dry, I die cut the word ‘thanks’ from Altenew’s lower case alphabet set right out of the colored floral piece!  :O

That took a couple weeks for me to get up the nerve! lol  No big deal after all. haha whew!


I added mounting tape to the back of each of the letters and placed them back in after I backed the piece with black cardstock.

I’ve seen a lot of cardmakers do this and have always loved it.  So glad I finally did it!  The simple ‘with heartfelt’ is from a Memory Box clear stamp set.

Links below to what I used…

THANK you so much for stopping by and supporting my cardmaking and blogging!  I appreciate it so much!  YES, with heartfelt thanks! Have a beautiful day!  It cooled off here and I even opened the windows because the humidity is low…so unusual!  So happy about it! lol

Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club Cards…

Hi everyone! I’ve been working on these two cards this week using the NEW Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club set. (link at the bottom of this post)

Two kinds of stained glass/quilt looking cards!


In the June kit there are three sets of dies that stack/coordinate.  A hexagon set, a circle set and a fan looking set. All for a great deal!

I used one layer of the hexagon set for this first card. I die cut a lot of the black one (popped out the waste), then I die cut two of each color cardstock from Taylored Expressions, linked below, all from the same die. The color ones held together well so that made it easy to tape the back (to hole the pieces in) and then glue the black cut on top.

This ended up a ‘Hallmark’ size card.  If I was doing it again, I would cut the panel in half and make two cards! 😀

The ‘For You’ sentiment die cut is from the Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons die set.

 

My next card is using the circles from the club set.

I lined up the 3 circle dies in a row on top of an A2 card size panel.  Taped them in place with removable tape and die cut…repeated it for the next row.  It worked slick.  I didn’t even measure this time. eek! lol   I had six holes in the panel then.

I used mounting tape on the back of the panel and adhered it to a TE Granny Smith A2 size panel so that color would show through when I pieced in the circles.

I die cut the 3 circle dies from white and Taylored Expressions color cardstock. Adhered them together and glued them into the holes in the panel.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and the MISTI tool.  I cut out the word sympathy with the MISTI Cut Align ruler.

I hope I didn’t make it sound complicated because it’s just a matter of cutting enough pieces, after you decide what colors you want to use, gluing and putting them in place. 😀

I wish you could see them in person… so much better! hehe

Thank you for stopping by and holler if you have any questions!

Memory Box Antique Corner Rose Label and Antique Leaf Label Thank You Card…

Hi eveyone!  Are you enjoying the NEW Memory Box release this time?  So many fun flower dies!  yay!

Today I die cut everything in white and colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers.  The flower pieces from the Antique Corner Rose Label die are colored with R81, 83 and the center dots on the two largest with R85.  The leaves on both the Antique Corner Rose and Antique Leaf Label die are colored with G24.

I pieced the dies together with the right side face down so I could put mounting tape over the back sides. Small pieces…I always check to make sure there isn’t any hanging over and if there is, I trim from the front and cut the excess at a slant so it doesn’t show.  On this one, I left the pieces hanging over on purpose so they’d catch the frames, then trimmed them all… works great!

I used the medium size of the new Pinpoint Butterfly Trio and left it white!

I stamped thank you and terrific from the new Big and Little Words clear stamp set on the label using the MISTI with Ranger Archival black ink.

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers ink.  I started out with the mini ink blending tool but then changed to the make up brush oval type brush to get the edges feathered out better.

Spattered it with water, dried it with the heat tool, spattered on some Hero Arts White Watercolor paint, then some black paint, drying in-between colors.

I’m really happy with it and will close with telling you all thank you for being so terrific!  Cardmakers are the best!

It’s a sunshiny day here!  A rare thing this Spring.  Maybe I can get out for a walk! Take care and thanks for stopping by!
