Memory Box Summer Meadow Collage and poppystamps Plumed Peacock cards…

Hi everyone! I’ve only made two cards this week and I’m gonna put them both in this post! lol  I’ve had this background piece laying on my desk for over a month, finally using it!  Always fun to use an unusual color combo…it’s a Distress Oxide background with Channin’s Shammy technique.  Ink blend on the ink and then hit it with your bunched up stamp cleaner shammy.  Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers are the ink colors I think I used here.

 

I die cut a piece of black cardstock with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die, then die cut the New Memory Box Summer Meadow Collage in it.

I die cut the New Memory Box Floating Swan in the inked panel and in a piece of black cardstock.  I wanted the water movement in the inked panel.  Very cool die!

The sentiment is from poppystamps Peony Stems and Blossoms stamp set.  I added an extra black butterfly die cut with the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die.

Then some Doodlebug and Echo Park Enamel Dots placed randomly.  I did use mounting tape to adhere the Summer Meadow Collage to the inked background, then glued that directly on an A2 white cardbase.

Linking my Summer Meadow Collage card to the Crop Stop Anything Goes link party…

Next up… the New poppystamps Plumed Peacock and Delicate Branch Collage….

This is when you need a professional photographer…when you use mirror cardstock! lol  My pictures don’t do the card justice.  It’s quite striking IRL.

I die cut the Delicate Branch Collage die in a piece of gold mirror cardstock, then trimmed the panel down to fit on an A2 size panel of black cardstock.

I die cut the Plumed Peacock in glitter cardstock and pieced them in.  I just put scotch tape on the back, then flip it over and put the pieces in.

I used mounting tape to adhere the gold panel to the black panel, then a little mounting tape strategically placed on the peacock so none of it would hit the branch collage die cut panel but still be popped up the same height as the panel.

I didn’t add a sentiment or anything to this card…I’m kind of a CAS girl but usually I at least have to have a sentiment!  I was ok with this though.  It’s very classy and elegant.

Thanks for stopping by today! I love hearing from you too!  Links below if you want to see what products I used.  See ‘ya later!

Simon Says Stamp Leafy Circle Cards…

Hi everyone! WOWzer it’s a hot day in May for IA!  93˚!  eek!  So I’m inside writing a blog post.  I wanted to go on a walk but not if it means melting!

My cards today feature Simon Says Stamp’s new Leafy Circle die.  It’s from the latest fabulous release called ‘Sending Sunshine’.

What I did…I die cut a piece of 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock with SSS Stitch Frame die.  Then instead of cutting the die in the panel, I embossed it using the tan mat, shims and the multi purpose platform in my Big Shot like you would do an embossing folder.

Using the ink blending tools and 3 Distress ink colors, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint, I added color.  I thought it was so cool, I did the same technique (embossing/inking) for my next card but added a kraft color panel with the Leafy Circle cut in it over the top of the ink blended piece.  whew… run on sentence.

Hey, talking about inks made me remember this… 25% off Ranger right now at SSS, use code RANGER25

 

I stamped the sentiment on vellum with Ranger Archival ink, trimmed it and used the Glue Dots Vellum adhesive on the back, just gotta tell you, that worked slick.   Then I stamped explore nature on the white panel with the same ink.  Stamping for both using the MISTI.

 

I matted the white panel with a green rectangle die cut from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics set.  I love that teeny border.  Mounting tape on the back of that and placed on a top folded kraft color cardbase that I edged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

Linking my Explore Nature card to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – use more than one stamp

Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies

 

Next card…same wreath but I CASEd myself…brought back that Meadow Flower… can’t get enough of it I guess!


This time I ink blended with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks.  Colored the flower head with Copics and added three Nuvo White drops. I used mounting tape behind the flower, the flower stem leaves and the sending die cut.

Both of these cards are A2 size and good for snail mail!

birch press design ADI Spinning Snowflake Card and Video…

hey! Another Christmas card…knockin’ ’em out of the park this week!  Little league baseball lingo there…you can tell where we’ve been two evenings a week! lol

Here’s where my brain took me next working with this ADI layer die set… this is the B layer paired up with the largest snowflake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die set.

 

Then I die cut the Memory Box Warm Christmas Wishes die twice, trimmed off the word warm and glued them together.  I kept the dots for the i’s, even glued them together but in the end, they were lost, bah haha, so Nuvo drops in white to the rescue!

A close up… I die cut two of the outer circle from Layer B and two of the snowflakes.  The DMC metallic thread is sandwiched between the twos.

I used the Mandala Card die set so the circle would be perfectly placed in the card front panel. Die cut it in Canson Bristol Smooth card, inked it all over with Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers) and made the fun mottled look with a wet shammy… call it Shammy Lift if you want a name!  I did it back a few posts with an AR poppy die, after seeing others doing it.  Then I used another cut of the same Mandala Card die for a template and the matching size Circle Basics die to die cut the circle in the card-base.  That worked slick for getting the circles lined up.

A flat photo…just cuz it turned out pretty good! hehe   Oh, that’s a Memory Box pool notecard cut in half on the inside…love how it matches the Peacock Oxide ink.

Here’s a very short video so you can see it spin!  You can click to You Tube to see it larger HERE

 

Thanks for stopping by today… I have two more cards to show you with this ADI layer set… see you tomorrow!

poppystamps Blooming Rose Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Two cards made with the poppystamps Blooming Rose die as the focal point.  I always like to see what other dies I can use with a die  too!

This is a flat, A2 size card.  No stress… it’ll mail…no foam and only little white Nuvo drops!  So inlay die cutting and ink blending make this card.

 

Die cut the poppystamps Blooming Rose die in green and in pink.  I used Memory Box notecards for this…Sage and I’m not sure what the pink is but it matches Altenew’s Cotton Candy ink pad.  Piece the two together (I do this right side down on my table) and scotch tape the pieces in on the back side. Lay this aside for now.

Die cut the front panel with the largest rectangle from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangle die set.  Then die cut a circle in the same panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Circle die set.

Do your ink blending on the edges, fit the circle back in the panel and use scotch tape on the back to hold it in place.

Die cut the poppystamps Blooming Rose die in the panel next…you’ll need to keep a few of the pieces for putting the ‘puzzle’ back together so don’t throw anything away.

Place the color Blooming Rose piece into the hole you cut in the panel…piece in the pieces you saved. Tape on the back.  Adhere to the card-base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Memory Box Birthday Sentiments set, I used the MISTI.

My next card is inlay too…no little pieces though.

 

I had a hard time deciding which front picture to use so you have two! RME

First I die cut the border from the poppystamps Pierced Borders set in a white card-stock panel.  Then I die cut the poppystamps Blooming Rose in the panel.  You can go as far down or as far up as you want into the border you already cut, because you’re just cutting the hole to place the gold piece into.

In another piece of card-stock die cut the Blooming Rose again, ink it with Versamark ink or any pigment ink pad and emboss it with gold embossing powder.

Piece it into the white panel, I work with the right side down and then use scotch tape in a few places to hold the rose in place.  On this one it was pretty much just the branch and swirl things off the side that got the tape on the back.

Then I glued the white panel to a purple piece and then to a white A2 size card-base.

A clean and simple card that you could add any sentiment to before you send or gift it!

Nothing spectacular today but just some fun things to do with dies, ink and paper!  So glad you clicked over!

Stampendous Build a Bouquet Card and SALES!!!

Such fun! I can only hope that one day our 3 Hydrangea bushes that we planted last year will give me a jar full! lol  I see green coming up though, so there’s hope!

I had fun playing with this stamp and coordinating die set from Stampendous.

Inking/daubing directly on the stamp with Distress Stains in the MISTI, like I’ve seen others doing, pull the color around with a waterbrush and paint in some details with the same waterbrush. No two alike!  ***Just discovered this though while making the links for what I used.  Distress Stains aren’t available anymore…they are in spray form now.  So I linked to some dauber bottles to put the Distress Sprays in.  Sorry about this but easy fix!

I stamped the jar in Ranger Archival black ink….my go to black for everything other than Copic coloring right now.

I stamped the plaid background with a Concord and 9th set using coordinating Distress Oxide ink pads.  That was fun…a gal could make plaid all day! lol

I decided the jar needed to sit on something…so those ovals…they come in so handy for that!

I think I need to try some other techniques with this set too… so many flowers and even a butterfly in the set and another vase! Even a pop-up with the Stampendous pop up die!

It’s a flower time of year for sure!  YAY!

AND it’s SALE time!  Check these out! Copics on sale at Simon Says Stamp!

 

AND at Scrapbook.com it’s an EXTRA 10% off everything!  Coupon expires Sunday, May 6th at midnight, PST.  They have these stamps and dies!

Alexandra Renke Poppy Flowers and More…

Hi everybody! Hottest topic these days?  yep, STILL the weather! lol  Spring/Winter/Spring/Winter/Spring/Winter…keepin’ us guessing!  As long as our new trees can handle it I’m ok! lol

So I’ve been playing with the stamp shammy on distress ink blending technique…not sure who came up with it but I bet it was somebody that made a beautiful ink blended background and then accidentally dropped their stamp shammy on it and magic happened! lol

I’ve made several with regular Distress ink but this one is Distress Oxide on Canson Smooth Bristol paper pad.  Orange cover pad, be sure it says smooth.   I started with Twisted Citron on the bottom, then Peacock Feathers with Broken China on the top/last.  After you’re done blending on the color with your ink blending tools, use your damp stamp shammy bunched up to make a few folds in the wad and pounce it on your inky background!

Oh it’s fun!  AND with the oxides, if you pounce on the darker and move to the lighter it transfers the ink and layers it on top… so cool…you can see it on the Twisted Citron here.

I die cut the Poppy Flowers with the same card and inked them with Oxides too.  Candy Apple, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.  I did come back in with matching Distress Markers for the little dots in the petals and leaves.

I did water spattering on the background and the die cuts.  I spray water (a puddle) into the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and clap over the pieces I want spattered.  Not so many big blobs that way.

I die cut the panel with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die…then embossed the sentiment from Neat and Tangled, So Many Sentiments stamp set on a strip of vellum using the MISTI to stamp, white pigment ink pad and white super fine embossing powder.

I’ll link everything below.  It was fun playing around… this was the 2nd card I made with these Poppy Flower dies…I had to get warmed up first with a ‘safe’ CAS card… lol!

Linking to some challenges…

Happy Little Stampers April Anything Goes With Dies Challenge

Less Is More – Bring Something Back – vellum and embossing on it

 

 

 

This card is basically self explanatory! 😀  So very clean and simple but I like it!  I die cut the Poppy Flowers dies and hello in white.  Glued the flowers down flat with Lineco PVA glue in the Darice fine tip bottles.  Well, first I die cut a red A2 size panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die…jazzed it up a bit…knowing me, I would’ve liked it plain too! lol  A few Doodlebug enamel dots, hello glued directly on black and then mounted to the card with thin mounting tape.

These Alexandra Renke dies are beautiful…wait until you click over and see all the other products!  The washi tape is to die for and the pattern paper is just gorgeous!  Beautiful floral and other designs… check it all out HERE Fun to change things up now and then. hehe

OH… I said ‘more’ up there in the title didn’t I?!  I almost forgot!  I have a sweet silhouette card to share that is perfectly Spring!

This is the Alexandra Renke Panorama Easter Girl die…I really think you could use it any time of year though, don’t you?  I just die cut her and her chicks in black, mounted her with thin foam mounting tape to an ink blended textured watercolor paper and spattered it up!

There are several other super sweet die borders from AR too…you’ll see them when you click to the link above.  I want more of course! haha!

I’ll leave you with this wish for a happy Spring. I’m a realist…reality is that Spring ain’t all it’s cracked up to be! lol  So we’ll just keep making our pretty cards and pretending that Spring isn’t a wet mess! If the sun comes out…HURRY and take advantage of it! lol

Thanks for stopping by and aren’t we fortunate we can make cards on the yukky days!

poppystamps Sending Scribbles Birthday Wreath card…

Last week I was playing around with stamps to make wreaths. I die cut a 3 ¾ inch circle, stuck the negative in the MISTI, marked the area where the first image kinda landed and then I kept moving my inner circle focal piece around to stamp the complete wreath.

Here’s a picture that might possibly live up to the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words! lol

I did have to mask off part of one to fill in a space.

I colored/painted the flowers with Distress Oxide inks. I don’t know that I would use this ink to color very often.  It tends to cover the black line you stamped if you’re not careful.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used the coordinating die set to cut out the word sending. I did use the thin mounting tape behind the die cut word. Another set I love!

A little Lawn Fawn Trimmings twine and some black Nuvo drops and the piece was pretty much done.  I cut a black piece of card-stock to 4 x 5 ¼ inch and mounted it to a top folding A2 card-base.

Linking my birthday wishes card to the following challenges…

Inspired by All the Little Things – photo inspiration

Stempelgarten Challenge – Spring

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Occasions

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Add some texture (nuvo drops and twine)

The Crazy Challenge – Spring

Addicted to Stamps and More – Make Your Mark

 

 

This card I stamped it the same way in the MISTI with the circle template I made but I stamped it so the black lines touched.  There was a little bit of space left at the bottom so I punched a couple 1/8th inch holes, added a piece of ribbon and tied a bow.

This one I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush pens doing wet on wet.  You can see what happens with that in the close up below! lol  It flows! No artist here! lol

 

I didn’t use a very good quality watercolor paper…just use the good stuff Pam! haha

The sentiment is from a neat Memory Box set called Prayers Sentiments…I really like how you can put the words together to say what you want.  There are several of these small sets.  Good deal! ok – I’ll shut up!
