NEW poppystamps Peony Bouquet Thinking of You Card…

Hi everyone!  Switching gears from cute to floral!  I love this new clear stamp set from poppystamps!  So pretty gold embossed and watercolored with Karin Markers, water and a paintbrush.

I stamped the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp using the Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform on Hobby Lobby Masters Touch watercolor card.  I love using this stamp platform for big stamps because I can leave the stamp on the lid then take just the lid/stamp to the sink to wash it after stamping!  So easy to clean up that way.

I stamped the plaid with Taylored Expressions Premium Dye Ink, first in Pink Champagne and then to get it a little pinker, I inked and stamped it again with Cupcake.  I was trying to match the Karin markers I used for watercoloring.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment with gold embossing powder. Then started coloring!

My Karin Markers (from Poland) were a gift from an amazing, dear, friend back in March. (the dreaded birthday was awesome this year) It looks like Simon Says Stamp is bringing them in but nothing in stock yet.  To see my other card I colored with them, select my Karin Markers category over on the right.  You can use any watercolors to color stamp images though and I plan to do some more with this beautiful image!

Karin Markers are Brush Pens and beautiful for Modern Brush Calligraphy!  I’ve been practicing on that when I sit down at night… pretty fun!  I’ve always enjoyed lettering but have only pursued it a couple times and never kept up with it.  Here’s hoping I do better this time.  It’s fun to do with the grandkids also.

ok – well, I’ll wrap this up and say, thanks for coming over! Hope you feel like coloring now!  I need to keep coloring/practicing! Don’t look at my coloring to close! lol

ttul,

Memory Box Daisy Flower Frame Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! There’s just something about a daisy that makes a gal happy! I kept this simple but the black and bits of color make it so sweet!

I die cut the frame three times and glued them together.

I embossed a white cardstock panel with the frame die, multi purpose platform and tan mat. That makes it easy for placement and gluing the frames over the top. Just take away the top tab of the platform when you run the die through the Big Shot to emboss.

I used scraps of Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock for the leaves and a scrap of TE Lemon Meringue for the flower centers.

I heat embossed the sentiment from poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set on TE Oreo cardstock.  TIP: When you’re white heat embossing on black, the cardstock really matters. TE and Bazzill work the best of the ones I’ve tried so far.  On others, the powder like soaks into the cardstock and it’s not white anymore! ugh

I embellished the card with the 3 butterflies from the Memory Box Butterfly Trio die.

Then I die cut the largest die in the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames two times, glued them together and glued them directly to the card panel.

A cherry birthday card with a little feminine touch!

Two Memory Box Perched Bird Die Cards…

Hi everyone…so many times we need a thinking of you card…when words aren’t enough, maybe a simple thinking of you card will help. Tragedy comes to everyone and when you can’t be there, a card is something tangible we can do.

This card is so CAS (clean and simple), truly lives up to the name and for once didn’t take any time to make!

I doubt that it even needs any explanation!  I did use a little foam mounting tape under the bird. The white die cut is glued directly to the A2 card base.

I stamped Thinking of You from the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp set in the MISTI with Archival black ink.  I’ll link everything up at the bottom of the post.

 

Then I die cut the Perched Bird again from Mixed Media card and watercolored it with Zig Real Brush Pens. The frame from the Splendid Rose Frame the same.

The sentiment this time is from the Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Archival black ink.

I added some twine to doll it up a bit…

See that blue-ish vase in the picture?  My daughter was going to toss it!  I love it! lol  It’s ceramic…perfect picture prop for this card! lol

Thank you for stopping by today. Happy July!

Memory Box Small Fringed Peony, Scribble Leafy Branch Thank You Card…

HELLO!!!  Bright card today! No sunshine here today except on this card! lol

I tried using a Gel Plate for the Smooshed Background on this card.  I put drops of Distress Ink refills on the plate, spritzed it with water and then laid the piece of watercolor paper in it and smooshed!  Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers are the colors I used.  Added spatters with the extra ink.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Small Fringed Peony from three Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock colors and pieced them into a white cut. Then I die cut two more of just the white and glued them on top and liked it better.

I went in with some color pencils for some shadows on the flower petals.  Just enough colorbook therapy to make me happy!

I die cut the new Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background in Bazzill Cardshoppe cardstock and the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline in White cardstock. Layered and glued them together.

I stamped and embossed the images from the new Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set.  I used the MISTI and Gold Embossing Powder.

I added three Doodlebug pearls…sequins might’ve been fun too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your Summer is off to a great start!  Happy papercrafting!

Memory Box Antique Garden Label Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends! I’m making my way through the new Memory Box release.

Today I revisited my Embedding Technique… it’s one of my faves for this type of die! My video explaining the process is HERE.  When I made the video though, we weren’t using as heavy a cardstock as we do now.  Today I used Canson Smooth Bristol in the orange cover pad.  I did it just like the video except that I ran it through my Big Shot and then back.

So cool, I just love the ease of adhering the die this way and the bit of dimension that looks so professional!

 

Some distress oxide inking on the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die cut panel. (die cut and ink this panel before you embed the die cut to it) I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Twisted Citron.

I spattered with water, white paint, spiced marmalade Distress Ink refill and twisted citron Distress Ink refill.

 

I die cut another panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangle and mounted the inked panel to it with mounting tape.

Then adhered it to an A2 card base.

I stamped a sentiment in the Label opening with the MISTI and the Archival Distress Spiced Marmalade Ink pad.  The sentiment is from the poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.

I added a few matte enamel dots.  I like it! lol  Sunshiny, Summery colors!

Thanks for stopping by! Keep making!

Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers Card…

Hi everyone!  A floral card with a big thanks to share with you today.

I stamped this beautiful floral image from SSS Sketched Flowers clear stamp set with Archival Black ink in the MISTI on watercolor paper.

I used the most amazing markers to watercolor with!  Have you heard of the Karin Markers?  They’re from Poland. Just WOW! So cool! I was so surprised and delighted when the pkg arrived at my front door!  A birthday present for me?!  YES!  From an awesome friend!!!  😀 Best Birthday ever!!!  😀

A story I made on Instagram about them… HERE.

They are awesome markers for lettering too.  I’m still working on that… practice, practice!

I spattered and after everything was dry, I die cut the word ‘thanks’ from Altenew’s lower case alphabet set right out of the colored floral piece!  :O

That took a couple weeks for me to get up the nerve! lol  No big deal after all. haha whew!


I added mounting tape to the back of each of the letters and placed them back in after I backed the piece with black cardstock.

I’ve seen a lot of cardmakers do this and have always loved it.  So glad I finally did it!  The simple ‘with heartfelt’ is from a Memory Box clear stamp set.

Links below to what I used…

THANK you so much for stopping by and supporting my cardmaking and blogging!  I appreciate it so much!  YES, with heartfelt thanks! Have a beautiful day!  It cooled off here and I even opened the windows because the humidity is low…so unusual!  So happy about it! lol

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
