Memory Box Pine Wreath and Snowberry Sprigs Card, Meadowtree Frame and Countryside Fence Frame Flip Card…

Hi everyone! I meant to get cards posted on Saturday and here it is Tuesday already!  I’m just going to put these two in one post.

I saw the ‘wreath’ challenge at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and had to play along!

I die cut one of the Memory Box Stitched Square Layers dies in a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, then embossed the next larger square die by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat (link below).  I use the multi purpose platform and take away the first layer to do the embossing.

I colored a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with 3 different green Copic Sketch markers and then die cut the NEW Pine Wreath die (4 branches) on each color.  Then I die cut one of the NEW Snowberry Sprigs die in Solar White and colored the berries red and the stem brown with Copic Sketch markers too.

Use a 1.6 inch circle frame from the Memory Box Stitched Circles dies for the wreath base, then adhere the pine branches onto the base.

Then I cut the NEW Snowberry Sprig into little sprigs and just glued them in, here and there very randomly.  Fun! Christmas is a time for greens and berries for sure! Glad Tidings is from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments stamp set.

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything Christmas

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – pop it up (3d mounting tape)

The swap for stamp club Friday was a card with a different fold… so I made this next card at the last minute!  The pictures aren’t the greatest cuz, last minute loo loo was hurrying!

Here’s the front… I layered up the NEW Meadowtree Frame with the Horse Sleigh Landscape die…cut both in Solar White 110# cardstock and ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spattered on some white ink. I colored the horse and sleigh with a Copic Sketch black marker trimmed it to fit and mounted it to the scene.

When you pull both sides, it flips the square.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the flip part of the card it’s an older one that’s not available anymore #657591.  It’s really easy to make this fold yourself though.  I’ve done it before.  Holler if you want me to find a tutorial for it or draw up the measurements for you. I need to make another one and make a video of it flipping!   There is also a new thin die from Sizzix.  I’ll link up to it below and the square looks like it’s * close to the same size.

I used the NEW Countryside Fence Frame die and the NEW Meadowtree Frame on the flip side.  I ink blended the sky with Chipped Sapphire Regular Distress ink and white ink splatters.

The Seasons Greetings sentiment is from the NEW Be Jolly stamp set and let it snow is from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Memory Box Delicate Pine Frame, Pine Forest Frame Masculine Scene Christmas Card…

Hi everyone! I always like to have a few cards ready for Tim to send at Christmas…a touch masculine but still pretty! lol  I need to add some glitter here and there! hehe   At Christmas you can get away with glitter on scene cards for men I think!

Basic card here…die cut everything in white, except the sky piece, I cut it in blue with the older Speckled Background die. (you can always spatter with white ink for the look of snow) Ink the die cuts with Distress Inks and stick it together!  yay! Stitched Hill, NEW Delicate Pine Frame, NEW Pine Forest Frame,  New Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame and the sentiment from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.

Now that I’m looking at this in photos, I’m thinking, hmmm… I need to add a scrap of red plaid! lol  Isn’t that the way of it, all done, pictures taken, writing the post and bam…I should’ve.  NO!  I will on the next card! lol

So fun all the things you can do with Memory Box and poppystamps dies.  I have so many cards started.  Fortunately I do finish them eventually!

This is an A2 size top folding card.

Holler if you have any questions.  I haven’t been sleeping the best, makes me feel like I’m forgetting details!

Thank you so much for stopping by and all your encouraging words here and on FB and IG.  I appreciate it so much! ❤

Memory Box Country Church Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  I don’t know about where you are but it was anything but a silent night here!  Rain, lightning and sounded like hail once. Drama all night!  This snowy scene looks so peaceful and a silent night sounds wonderful! lol

We’re in for a rainy holiday weekend according to the weather stats. Hoping for a little dry Monday so we can have a birthday party!

My card today is using the new gorgeous Memory Box Country Church Frame die, die cut from silver metallic cardstock and some elements from other new Memory Box dies… I love mixing and matching and that little touch of red!

The little red bird is from the MB Delicate Pine Frame die (cut in red cardstock), the holly sprig is from the MB Elegant Holly Double Frame die, then I used the new MB Snowy Circle die in the background (ink blended with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink).

The sentiment is from the new MB Typewrite Holiday Sentiments set and I heat embossed it with Ranger silver embossing powder on silver metallic cardstock.

The church and trees are two layers of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.

The card is 4 ½ inches square but would fit in an A6 or A7 envelope so you can mail with a regular postage stamp!

Memory Box Pine Candle Oval Frame…

Hey everyone! I didn’t think I could do this alcohol thing! At stamp club Friday, Linda from club did a demo and we played. This morning I did this by myself!  The ink really spreads on yupo though…I wanted to try little dots of ink…hmmmm… lol  Big dots worked though! lol Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Lettuce and Oregano are the colors I used.  Then a little gold foil.  I just gambled on getting the foil on there.  If any of you know a video you can point me too on getting the foil on there… email it to me.

This is about as artsy as I get! lol

I had the die cut white to begin with, then a friend told me to put gold foil around the flame and I was like, “no way” am I going to get glue near that! lol  So I die cut the Pine Candle Oval Frame die in gold foil cardstock then and glued it over the white ones.  There are two white ones in the stack because I got a smudge on the first one so I had to cut another and glue it on. lol  Oh the trials! haha

Linking my alcohol ink card to some challenges…

CAS Christmas Card Challenge 

This next one is a Distress Oxide background…

A lot of pictures today!  This one, I die cut an oval with the Sudio Oval Layers die set… it matches the size of the Pine Candle Oval Frame die.  Using the mini Ink Blending tools, I inked on the NEW Distress Oxide Ink pad colors, starting at the top with Mustard Seed, then Barn Door (I brought it up and around the Mustard Seed a little, then came back in with Mustard Seed, back and forth a little to get them blended) then Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive on the buttom!  I was really happy with how the colors blended and worked with this die cut!

I stamped peace on earth on a strip of white cardstock that I inked with Barn Door Oxide and let dry.  Then stamped on it with Archival black ink in the MISTI.

A few little sequins to finish it off… oh wait,  I did spatter it with Barn Door regular Distress ink.  I just swiped a little ink from the pad onto my Tonic craft mat, one spritz of water and a #4 soft paintbrush to spatter it.  TIP: I don’t know about you but spattering seems like an art to me too!!!  grrr  BUT  I think I’m finally on to something with this #4 soft bristle paintbrush!  It works the best of any I’ve tried so far and I’ve tried a lot!   SO don’t give up!  Find a brush that does what you want it to do.  I’m convinced it’s all about the brush!

The white spatters are a spray… I’ll link to it below.  I just poured a little on my craft mat and picked it up with that wonder paintbrush (hehe) and spattered it on.  I probably should’ve heat set my oxide inks first.  I wonder if the white would’ve stayed whiter? SO, the saga continues as to what is what!

p.s. my paintbrush is a #4 US Artquest paintbrush.   I love my US Artquest brushes.  I will look and see if I can find them to link to. (EDA – found them, link below! I love the other brushes in the set too!)

Linking my Oxide card up to some challenges…

Folk Dance Die from SSS Friendly Frolic New Release…

Hi everyone!  AWESOME new release up at Simon Says Stamp!  They sent me the Folk Dance die to create with…here’s what I came up with this time around!

I die cut a piece of copy paper to make a stencil…

Used the stencil to ink up a card panel with Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint  Distress Oxide Inks and the mini ink blending tools. Sprinkled on Clear Embossing powder and heat set.

Then I die cut a card panel of 110# Neenah Solar White and layered/glued it over the top of the inked panel.

Tied on some pink twine…glued that to a top folded card base.

Die cut a Double Stitch Rectangle from poppystamps…inked the interior cut with Peeled Paint Oxide ink…

Die cut SSS Painted Thanks die two dies from the same white and glued them together and mounted them to the rectangle with mounting tape.

Have fun checking out the NEW RELEASE HERE!  

A big thanks for visiting my blog today and thanks for your wonderful comments too!  I appreciate them so much and love hearing from you!

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.

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!
