poppystamps Floral Cluster CAS Birthday card…

Hi cardmaker friends! I’ve missed getting on here and sharing! Here’s a clean and simple birthday card, well, cuz, the birthdays just keep coming faster and faster!!!

Some die cutting…distress oxide ink blending/coloring, a stamped sentiment and done! yay!

Almost like back to the basics with these punch looking flowers but I love how they’re scattered and such happy colors!

A few mat enamel dots and it’s a sweet birthday card.

Question for you…have any of you received cards made with the do it yourself enamel dots?  How did they travel through the mail?  Did they squish/flatten?

ok – links to what I used below…have a great weekend! I have some more birthday cards to finish and I know…valentines! lol  Our family Valentine/Birthday party is Sunday night so I’ll be back with more next week!  Take care!

poppystamps Heart Confetti Collage and Memory Box Heart Gift Box…

I love this non-traditional color combo for hearts!  I started near the top of a 4 x 5 ¼ panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cover Classic Crest Smooth card-stock blending on Distress ink pad colors with the foam ink blending tool. Spiced Marmalade first, then Carved Pumpkin, then Picked Raspberry and ending with Spun Sugar.

I die cut the poppystamps Heart Confetti Collage die in a panel of the same card-stock that was die cut first with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die that is the same size as an A2 card.

I stamped the sentiment from the new poppystamps Valentine Fairies stamp set, with the MISIT stamping tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I added a couple Doodlebug matte sprinkles on each end. Definitely a CAS card!

I love this new little Memory Box Heart Gift Box… super cute.  I die cut it once in pink and once in white.  The smaller heart is from the collage die I used on the card.  I cut the white die cut down to use behind the hole.

The arrow is from the Memory Box Cupid’s Tools die.

fun!  You could cut six of these Heart Gift Boxes and make a flower!

Memory Box and poppystamps Christmas!

Hello! This brand spanking new kitty is ready to come to your house to play!  Isn’t it adorable?! We have so many kitty loving grandkids that I need to make a bunch of these! hehe

Snow Kitty is part of the newest release from Memory Box…there are several ‘deep edge’ dies.  These dies work great with paper but will also cut other materials too!

I die cut my kitty from regular card-stock, edged the pieces with Distress Gathered Twigs ink, layered her/him up on pattern paper then adhered to a little brown paper sack.  A stamp pad fits in here perfectly or a die envelope…perfect for gift giving…definitely a wonderful gift card presentation.

yes I love it! lol  Hey, the panel is perfect for an A2 size card too!

I’ll link below to what I used…

Christmas Card Challenges #25

Scrapyland Challenges – Anything Goes (with dies sold in their store)

Then I have a card to share that I copied!  I know… but I loved Dave’s card in this video and had to have this tree die!

I pretty much did everything like he did… Iced Spruced Distress Oxide ink in the background.  I don’t have any bleach so I used the Frost Shimmer spray to splatter on and Nuvo Fresh Snow for the glitter on the trees and snow line.

There you can see the spatters better… I didn’t realize the ink bled from the deer until I started editing the pictures.  The retouch tool wouldn’t let me remove it either, it just did weird things so you’re getting to see it! bummer. hehe

I love deer on cards…not so much in real life… too many deer/car accidents in Iowa. ugh.

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!

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

Linking my card to some other challenges…

Memory Box Graceful Cattails, Dragonfly Stems and Tall Grassy Stems Corners…

Monday greetings everyone! Back with a masculine birthday card…very Summer-ish!

I had fun playing with the Distress Oxide inks again on Mixed Media card-stock.  I blended the ink on with the ink blending tool and then spritzed it with a mister bottle of water.

At first I didn’t like it so it’s taken me a few weeks to finish this.  I’m glad I persevered! lol  Always nice to have a man card in the stash!

I used the following dies…the Dragonfly Stems Corners are layered on top of the Grassy Stems Corners.

Graceful Cattails

Dragonfly Stems Left Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Left Corner

Dragonfly Stems Right Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Right Corner

Scribble Happy Birthday

I die cut everything from Mixed Media Card-stock and colored them except for the happy birthday sentiment.  I cut it from black 2mm craft foam and black card-stock. I glued the card-stock cuts to the foam and then glued them to the card after I assembled all the scene pieces.

This ended up a little over a 5 ½ inch square card. I get my square envelopes HERE.

MFT Birdie Brown Party Like a Pirate Birthday Card…

I think I know what they mean by the lazy days of Summer…you feelin’ it? hehe

This birthday card was for Jace, Rogan’s big brother, turned 7!  This pirate looks like him too… a ginger that loves baseball! I used the matching die set to cut the pieces.

I love it that Torico had this card in one of the MFT release classes, I just had to make it! There’s a pdf file and photos on the MFT website.

I used different card-stock for coloring this time and kept forgetting that it bleeds…so excuse the bloody mess here and there! lol

I colored the water, land and tree with Distress Oxide inks.  The sky with the MFT cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

oh, the wave cuts in the water are a Lawn Fawn die

Torico’s images are so fun to color!  Four more birthday cards to share and then I’ll get back to some die cutting and yes, CHRISTMAS!
