MFT Stamps Pure Innocence ‘Start Each Day with a Whee’ Swing Card…

Hi everyone! When this cute gal came out awhile back I knew I had to have her!  We have one granddaughter that especially loves to swing and she loves cards too!  I love it when the idea for personalizing a card comes easy!

Here’s my version of the swinging ‘whee’ girl in action…she’s cute!  You can see it a lot better on You Tube, HERE

I basically followed MFT’s video but I used dies I already owned.  I added a tree trunk from the Memory Box Weeping Willow Tree Cutting Plate but I see it’s discontinued.  There are other tree dies though that would work… like this one HERE.  You could also hand cut one really easy.  I haven’t seen anyone else using a tree trunk but I think it makes it look more realistic… when I first saw the cards made up, I thought weird, green clouds! lol

I used poppystamps Stitched Cloudline dies and die cut them and the grass borders from Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock.  I’m really happy with how they turned out!

I stamped her in the MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and die cut her then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers. Hair E21, E43, 44, 47, Skin E000, YR000, E00, E01, R20, Shirt E02, 04, Shorts B 91, 93, 95, 97, Shoes T1,3, 5, Swing seat and rope E20’s, white space between the swing ropes is colored with B21.

I stamped the sentiment from the set in the MISTI with Black Archival ink.

My cardbase is Gumball cardstock from Bazzill or Taylored Expressions has it also. Links below…

Thanks for ‘swinging’ by today! Holler if you have any questions!

Here’s some links to stuff I used to make this card…thank you so much for supporting me and my blog!  I appreciate it!

Memory Box NEW Brilliant Sunflower Die Cards…

Hi everyone!  Here’s what I’ve been doing so far this week.  The new dies from Memory Box arrived and I got busy!

I’ve always liked sunflowers and holly hocks.  I suppose because they look free spirited! haha

For this card, I used the NEW Brilliant Sunflower and added the square frame from the Splendid Rose Frame from this year’s earlier release.  I LOVE how these mix and match!

I made a short video of how I emboss the detail in the sunflower head…watch it here or on You Tube.

 

I really like how embossing deepens the detail.

I inked edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini round ink blending tools.

I colored the center of the embossed yellow piece with color pencil and added white dots with a white gel pen.

Some quick die piecing in the corners….heat embossed sentiment is from the NEW Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set. It’s made to coordinate with some of the other new dies too so you’ll be seeing it used a lot! yay!

Stamped with Versamark, in the MISTI stamping tool.

You brighten my day!  It’s true!

I used the NEW Misti Cut Align tool to cut the sentiment strip… I REALLY like having that tool!  Tools are everything!

Some enamel dots…

So then, cuz I had experimented and cut so many sunflowers in different colors, I decided to use the white cut!

I dry embossed the yellow flower head that’s behind the white outline die… I love how it looks, it just gives it a little roundness.  I glue it just in the center so the petals can kinda look free-ish.

A Distress Oxide background in Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint using the cheap make up brushes to blend it on the card-base.  I’ll link to the ones the stamp company is selling but I’m using the cheap ones and love them!

A happy, cute card! 😀 We all need a little sunshine in-between rains these days!

The sentiment is from the same NEW set as above… I am loving this set! I had fun making these two cards!

Both cards are 4 ½ inches square.  You could mail this size in an A6 envelope or a 5 inch square one.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re enjoying the flowers in paper or in dirt!

poppystamps Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame Card…

Edited to Add… in case you noticed the double As in the sentiment… I added a bird over one!  Here’s the new photo…

Pam Sparks Greenhouse Potted Plants and Shelves BIRD added over A

Hi again! Another fun sidekick die from poppystamps.  I’m not sure I did it justice but I had fun!

I die cut the frame in a piece of woodgrain pattern paper. Colored over the flower pot parts with Copic markers, BG53, 57, YG 25, 17, YR18, E99 and the birds with BG53, 57, E57, E99. I die cut the frame from a piece of cardstock and glued the pattern paper to it, making it sturdier. Then adhered it to the cardbase.

I die cut the vines in white cardstock and colored them with the same greens, YG25 and YG 17.

I stamped a sentiment from the poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.  Then on the inside I’m going to stamp ‘celebrate your day’ and ‘happy birthday’ from the same set.  I LOVE it when there’s sentiments that work together in a stamp set!

I put Glossy Accents on the pots and left them to dry…then decided it needed something else, so I stamped in the white dots very carefully.  hmmm… not sure I should’ve but to late now! haha

Here’s an iPhone ‘before the dots’ picture.   WOW, we got new phones and man does this thing take good pictures!  All I did was crop, resize and put my name on it!  whoa! (a little different color tone)

Even as good as the photos are… it’s still better IRL!  😀

Memory Box update…There’s an even newer release now and mine just arrived!  Stores already have them in stock so be sure to check them out! HERE they are at Starlitstudio.net.  If you want to see the cards Memory Box has already made up for samples, go HERE and click on each item to see a sample, then back to shop… pretty cards!

poppystamps Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame Card…

Hi everyone! Playing with new poppystamps dies this week and a new stamp too!

I inked up the new poppystamps 5 ½ x 5 ½ inch Picnic Plaid stamp with three Distress Oxide Inks using the Tim Holtz travel stamp platform.  I used the panel inked with Forest Moss for this card. I like it a lot!  It stamped really well. Easy to clean up because the stamp platform cover comes off, I was able to take it directly to the sink to wash the ink off between changing ink colors. Dried with a clean, damp shammy.

I die cut the plaid panel with one of the Memory Box Rectangle Basics dies to match up behind the Sidekick frame.

Using the stencil that comes with the die, I inked up the poppies with regular Distress inks and the make up brushes that look like toothbrushes. I used Barn Red, Festive Berries and Fired Brick.  Then I went in with a color pencil and drew over the embossed lines from the die. I colored the stems with G95 Copic Sketch Marker. It matched the Forest Moss Oxide ink perfectly!

I die cut and colored a couple extra ‘parts’ from the complete die to embellish the sentiment.

‘Sending Happy Wishes’ is from the new poppystamps Springtime Greetings clear stamp set and stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink in a MISTI stamping tool.

Hope your Spring is shaping up all pretty and full of flowers! There’s an even newer release from Memory Box now and I’m hoping there’s some on the way to me as I type!  Stores already have them in stock so be sure to check them out! HERE they are at Starlitstudio.net  If you want to see the cards Memory Box has already made up for samples, go HERE and click on each item to see a sample… pretty cards!

Another card to share tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!

poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves and Memory Box Lilly of the Valley Sprigs Circle Cards…

Smiling today and enjoying the Worlds Robotics competition in Detroit via live streaming on my own computer!  It’s kinda funny racing between the stamp room and the computer room because I still need to get stuff done around here! haha  One of our grandson’s is on the team from here and the older one that was on the team last year is helping. Three of their brothers/grandsons are dressed in their mascot shirts that Heather, our daughter made them.  So, yep, I’m smiling.

This card makes me happy too!  I die cut the new poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves die in white cardstock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I will tell you the colors but yes, I often start out with one set of colors and end up coloring over with another set.  *cross your eyes* lol  I started out with YG63 and 67 for the vines but decided to change it after coloring the one pot YG17 and 25.  So I quickly went over the vines with YG17… a new green color! ;D  YG17 and 25 are pretty much my go to green.

For pink it was RV21 and 23 I think.  Yellow is Y15 and 18 but I think I put a little YR18 in the veins.  The terra cotta color is YR18, E07 and E99.  The tealish blue is BG02 and 05. The tan pot is Y28.  The Shelves are E35 and 37.

I used a little white gel pen here and there for accents.

The sentiment is from the Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments clear stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The dark blue panel is die cut with the largest die from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and glued to a top folding A2 white cardbase.  I added 5 of the smallest size Doodlebug Sprinkles.  I love them!  The card is pretty fun without them though if you want a completely flat card for snail mailing. It will still mail with the sprinkles for one stamp but I put a piece of that super thin packing stuff on top of it.

Next card…

Using some of the 6×6 paper pad stash this time…yes it’s older.  Carta Bella Flora No 1 it’s called.  Start digging, you probably have it! hohoho

I trimmed out the Lily of the Valley Sprigs from the Circle die after cutting it and the watering can from white cardstock.  Then I added a little Copic coloring again.  Pinks RV13 and 14.  Greens YG63, 67 and 99.  Gray is W2 and 3.

I used some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel Drops to make some droplets. I made them on my craft sheet and then glued them on.

Nothing real earth shaking but I like it!  But who do you send a ‘do something nice everyday’ card to?!  hmmmm

Holler if you have any questions!  Links below to what I used to make these cards.

Concord and 9th Crafty Turnabout Birthday Cards For Friends…

Hi everyone!  Here’s my first creating with Concord and 9th Turnabout stamps. It took me an afternoon to get everything figured out. The right ink on the right cardstock, etc.  I don’t like it when the ink bleeds and you can’t read the words, like the “sent with love”  and “hello”, no bleeding allowed!  So I soldiered on until I found cardstock and ink that performed! 

The other ‘trick’ is making sure to get the ink cleaned off the stamp before the next color.  I used my Tim Holtz Travel stamp platform.  I love that thing!  I use all my stamp platforms but some just work better for some things than others so I’m glad I have them all.

In this case, because the lid comes off, I could just take it to the sink with the stamp still on the lid and wash it under the running water with a little hand soap. Dried it with a towel. No ink color transfer!  yay!

The other thing I absolutely love about using the TH travel platform is that I added the Sizzix Sticky Sheet to the base of it and I don’t have to use the magnets then!  So amazing AND it shims just a tad bit and stamps better IMO.  YAY!  I’ll link to this below.  If you need a picture, email me and I’ll send you a picture from my iPhone.

You can kinda see a peek of the inside of the card.  You end up with a stamped 6×6 piece and it sure is hard to chop it down! lol  I took the  piece I cut off and glued it inside! lol 

Here’s a couple close ups.  I used two different colors for the base panel, that’s why I put in two close up photos. I love how they turned out and my fellow cardmaking friends loved them too! YAY!

I used Lawn Fawn inks on 80# Neenah Solar White Classic Crest smooth cardstock. A lot of times I use the heavier but in this case, there is a difference between stamping on the two and the 80# didn’t bleed like the 110# did!  Maybe that’s just an Iowa thing! lol

I’m curious what everyone else uses for this type of color with stamp pad stamping?! I’d love to hear what you like if you have time to comment!

So I stamped a few extra backgrounds while I was at it because I loved it so much when I finally succeeded. hehe

Such an awesome sentiment!  For the scissors I had some eyelet brads so I used them but an eyelet would’ve worked perfectly also.

Everything I used for these cards are from the Crafty sets… I’ll link below.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy paper crafting/cutting!

poppystamps Spring Pots Frame Cards and Shopping!

Hi everyone! More card ideas with the 2019 Spring poppystamps release today. Here I die cut the Spring Pots Frame in white 2x and black cardstocks, then  inlaid it into an A2 kraft cardstock panel that I also die cut with the Spring Pots Frame die.

I put scor-tape on the back so I could inlay the rest of the little pieces.  I colored the kraft cardstock frame pieces with a Copic sketch marker E43 and pieced them in.  The pot pieces I colored with YR18 and BG07. The little leaves I used YG25.

The teal frame is an ‘inbetween’ piece that falls out when you die cut the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames before you clip them apart.  I colored it with BG07 Copic Sketch marker.

The white outside frame is the largest die from the set of poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames.

The sentiment is from the poppy Birthday Blowout clear stamp set, embossed in white embossing powder. Such a great stamp set, I will use every stamp in the set!

No mounting tape on either of my cards today!  This one is perfectly flat-ish for snail mailing!

My second card…

This one, I die cut in white 2x, glued it to an oxide background, added some enamel dots, a die cut frame and two hours later it was done. haha

Where does the time go?!

Oxide inks I used are Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I blended them on with the mini ink blending tools.

The enamel dots are from Doodlebug and the white frame is the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames, cut 3x and glued together.

The sentiment is from the poppy Springtime Greetings clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for Easter and Spring!

Hope you’re getting some inky, papercrafting, cardmaking time too!  I should be outside working or washing windows or something but maybe I’m allergic! haha  Hey, it’s whatever you enjoy!  Make some time for it, right?!
