Memory Box Egg Basket Frame Happy Easter Card…

I’m back and editing to add more photos!  I decided to take off the Happy Easter and stamp hello!  So keep scrolling for the original post text!  lol

The sentiment ‘hello’ is from the New Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments Clear stamp set, HERE.

Which one do you like better?   Don’t count that I changed the white balance on the camera so the color  is different for the two cards…some days I shouldn’t be allowed to have a camera! lol

 

A very Happy Spring and Easter to you! These Memory Box Forget Me Nots are such sweet, little, whimsical flowers to add to the new Memory Box Egg Basket Frame.

There’s a little bit of green coming up at the base of our hydrangea bushes.  Whew… it was a fierce Winter so you never know!  There’s hope!

I die cut the Egg Basket Circle 3 times from kraft color cardstock and glued them together.  I left one cut in the die and embossed the basket weave by going over the basket area with a stylus.  Then I inked the whole thing with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

I die cut the Frame part of the set from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock.  I don’t use the metal shim for these dies but because they are intricate, I die cut them with the blades up.  I crank a third of the way, then crank back to start, then crank to the middle, then crank back a little but not back to start, then I crank the rest of the way but stopping and going back toward the middle and back to all the way again.  Hope that makes sense.  I can’t stand my cutting plates getting all warped. And this works most of the time.  If I have an area that didn’t cut all the way, I change to a sidekick cutting plate, the small 2 inch wide plate and try to just cut in that area.  I don’t like to try to cut the whole thing again.  It makes a mess!  I hate those paper hairs too. ugh.

Otherwise, just use 80# cardstock and it’ll cut without any extra maneuvering!

I backed the Frame with a Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die cut in a little darker purple cardstock.

I inked up the area behind the basket with a little Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and a mini ink blending tool.

To top it off, I die cut the new Memory Box Happy Easter Premiere die from Gold Foil Cardstock.   I love this gold!

The card is 4 ¾ inches square.  You can easy mail it in an A7 envelope!

I’ve got a card to mail today, it’s so nice, I’m gonna walk it to the Post Office! yay for Spring!

Memory Box Cottage Flower Circle Frame Card…

Hi everyone! Hope it’s a lovely day wherever you are!  I’m using some new Memory Box/poppystamps products today.

I started by die cutting the NEW Cottage Flower Circle and Egg Basket Frame dies in white cardstock. (I forgot to emboss the Cottage Flower Circle Frame cut… oops, normally the leaves and flowers would have some vein lines in them from the die)

I only used the Square Frame portion of the Egg Basket Frame die and adhered it directly on the Bazzill Mint Julep A2 card base.

I die cut a solid circle from the Memory Box Circle Basics Die set and inked it with three Oxide inks, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean. Then spattered with water.

I mounted the white Cottage Flower Circle, with small pieces of mounting tape behind the flowers and leaves, to the Oxide circle, then adhered the circle directly over the Egg Basket Frame already on the card base.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Doodle Happy Easter die three times, glued them together and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Memory Box Typewriter Sentiments stamp set on white cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder,  inked it with the three oxide inks I mentioned above, then trimmed it out with the NEW My Sweet Petunia Cut Align ruler.  I LOVE it!  It works great!

The flower sprig by the sentiment is a die that’s included in the Cottage Flower Circle Frame Die.  I used little pieces of foam mounting tape behind the flower and leaf but glued the ends of the stems directly to the card base.

For some reason, I really like these colors together!  Here’s hoping for more Easter cards since Easter is late this year.  Sometimes the holidays come to close together for me to keep up! lol

Stempelgarten Challenge and Memory Box Springtime Tulips and Wildflower Circle Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been here on the blog!  EEK! It’s been a busy family February for me, all good!I’m excited to share that I’m a guest at the Stempelgarten Challenge blog this month.  I bet you can guess the theme just by looking at my card! If you said, Spring, you’re right!

My card uses two new Memory Box dies, Springtime Tulips, Wildflower Circle and the new stamp set, Springtime Typewriter Sentiments.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress inking in the background, then the dies cut in white and colored with Copic Markers. I did cut an extra frame (tulips) to help the Wildflower Circle be a little higher on the card.  I hand trimmed the tulips off the extra one though because I just wanted the frame.

The sentiment is stamped on the front with Ranger Archival black ink using the MISTI stamping tool.

You are invited to join in the challenge with a Spring creation until March 31st!   Click on over AND there’s a prize involved!  Here’s a picture and a link to the Stempelgarten online store.  So CUTE!

I think Spring is around the corner!  hehe  I know it is even though it was minus one when I got up this morning! lol

Memory Box Spring Bunnies Card…

Happy Spring!  The rain has started so the flowers will be popping up and the bunnies will be hopping!  I fell in love with the bunny with the scarf though and I love the carrots in this set!  SO CUTE!

I did some regular Distress Ink blending with the mini ink blending tools using  Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron and spattering with water for the background.

The fence is from the Fanciful Fences Memory Box die set and the Oval is from the Stitched Oval Layers die set but the Studio Oval Layers die set would work too.

Colored with Copic Sketch Markers… E40’s, YR10’s, YG20’s.

I stamped the sentiments from the set with the MISTI stamping tool using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink.

A card sure to bring smiles…and bring on a carrot binging snack! lol

Memory Box Sweet Bunny Happy Easter Card…


Memory Box new Sweet Bunny hoppin’ your way today.  I placed him in a little scene, no camouflage there!

I started with the Forest Branch Collage die, die cut from a MB Kraft notecard, inked the inside edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool. I colored the branches and leaves with Distress Markers Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs.

Next layer called the Forest Collage and the top layer called the Everglade Collage…both die cut in MB Kraft and inked the same as the Forest Branch Collage.

I didn’t use mounting tape this time but you sure could…the thinnest is what I’m linking you to below. I just made double cuts of the Forest and Everglade Collage and glued them together to get a bit more thickness.


I die cut the bunny in Hobby Lobby’s Mastertouch Watercolor paper. This is the old version…it’s a little different now but still cool texture. I colored his bunny ears with a Spun Sugar Distress marker. Oh and added a little to his cheeks!

I die cut some teeny flowers from a discontinued die but I linked up below to another die that has teeny flowers in it that would work the same way. I used an embossing stylus to shape the flowers and poked them in the center with a piercing tool.

For the kraft strip, I used the Stitched Divider die and glued the die cut Happy Easter on it.

The top panel is die cut with one of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress ink blended on to the Memory Box White notecard with the mini ink blending tool.

I think that’s it!  Holler if you have any questions.

poppystamps Powell & Corden Butterflies and Egg Swoosh Easter…

Just a note…a pretty gold embossed butterfly on my first card today.  I die cut a white card-stock panel with the Rectangle Basic die set, then die cut the Corden Butterfly die in the panel.

I die cut the Powell Butterfly die, inked it and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I only glued it to the card base in the very center so the wings can be lifted and shaped a little.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment…layered the panel onto a Memory Box Lagoon A2 notecard and glued on a few 4 mm gold sequins.

An easy CAS card that lets the gold make the statement!

Next card…

For this Happy Easter card I die cut the Egg Swoosh die in metallic gold card-stock, adhered it to the white panel that I die cut with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set and stamped happy easter in mint green ink.

I die cut and colored the Stitched Eggs with Distress inks and the mini ink blending tools. Then glued them on.

I mounted the white panel to the card with a piece of craft foam that I die cut with the same Rectangle Basics die set.  I just use ATG tape on both sides to adhere to the panel and then to the Memory Box A2 notecard.

Another CAS (clean and simple) card ready for the next holiday!

Memory Box Spring and Easter cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Some Memory Box dies and Distress Ink Smooshing on my first card today. Have you done this technique yet? I’m sure I’ve described it on other posts and if you google, lots will come up.  It is so fun!  I used Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet on  watercolor paper.

I die cut the egg a couple times and glued it together with Tombow Mono Multi glue.  The sentiment is just one layer glued carefully to a piece of vellum. I used the Rectangle Basics die set for the layers.

I know the Nuvo drops are really fun but I still tend to reach for the Doodlebug Sprinkles/enamel dots.  I love the colors and sizes.  I’ll link to everything below.

Linking my card up to challenges…

Next card…

I die cut the Gift Basket die from a kraft notecard and ran it back through the Big Shot with the tan mat and shims to get the embossed effect.  While it’s still in the die, turn it over and ink it through the holes in the die with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the ink blending tool!  Adds so much to a simple card.

The Petite Flower Bunch die fits perfectly in the basket. I used white Nuvo drops for the flower centers.

The light is weird on this photo but I liked it for some reason. lol  A sweet card IRL.  One to use for any occasion.
