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.

poppystamps Spring Pots Frame Cards and Shopping!

Hi everyone! More card ideas with the 2019 Spring poppystamps release today. Here I die cut the Spring Pots Frame in white 2x and black cardstocks, then  inlaid it into an A2 kraft cardstock panel that I also die cut with the Spring Pots Frame die.

I put scor-tape on the back so I could inlay the rest of the little pieces.  I colored the kraft cardstock frame pieces with a Copic sketch marker E43 and pieced them in.  The pot pieces I colored with YR18 and BG07. The little leaves I used YG25.

The teal frame is an ‘inbetween’ piece that falls out when you die cut the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames before you clip them apart.  I colored it with BG07 Copic Sketch marker.

The white outside frame is the largest die from the set of poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames.

The sentiment is from the poppy Birthday Blowout clear stamp set, embossed in white embossing powder. Such a great stamp set, I will use every stamp in the set!

No mounting tape on either of my cards today!  This one is perfectly flat-ish for snail mailing!

My second card…

This one, I die cut in white 2x, glued it to an oxide background, added some enamel dots, a die cut frame and two hours later it was done. haha

Where does the time go?!

Oxide inks I used are Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I blended them on with the mini ink blending tools.

The enamel dots are from Doodlebug and the white frame is the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames, cut 3x and glued together.

The sentiment is from the poppy Springtime Greetings clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for Easter and Spring!

Hope you’re getting some inky, papercrafting, cardmaking time too!  I should be outside working or washing windows or something but maybe I’m allergic! haha  Hey, it’s whatever you enjoy!  Make some time for it, right?!

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!

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

Linking up to some challenges….

poppystamps Poinsettia Delights and Outline Joy Card…

Hi everyone! I wish that was my truck IRL!  So cute…there’s a Christmas tree in the bed. I found that at Menards last year in their Christmas scene decoration section of the store.

The card!  This is one of the poinsettia cards that I told you last week that I had to get finished!  One more to go!  Well probably more than one but another one that is already started.

I stamped the images from this NEW poppystamps Poinsettia Delights stamp set and heat embossed them with white powder on Kraft cardstock.  Then I watercolored them with Tombow Dual Brush markers and Stampin Up’s Real Red Marker.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Joy Outline die in woodgrain paper and black cardstock, then inked the edges of both with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I tied on this cotton cord… it’s from the grocery store!  It was so fun to buy something for stamping at the grocery store! lol

I roughed up the edges of the pattern papers with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool, then inked around with Gathered Twigs too… love that color!

This ended up being an A7 size card.  5 inches x 7 inches.
