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!

Memory Box Riverbank Oval and poppystamps Best Wishes Folksy Script…

Hi everyone!  Happy Father’s Day to your families!

A masculine card to share with you today from the new MB/ps release. A panel of plaid paper…some textured cardstock to coordinate… the NEW Riverbank Oval die…cut first and then I put it in the Stitched Oval Layers die to run it through the machine again to get the stitch lines on it!  It’s a neat die either way but you know me… use as many dies as you can on a card Pam! haha

Shop the new release HERE… lots of pattern paper HERE

I die cut the NEW Best Wishes Folksy Script die in tan cardstock 3 times and glued them together…it’s nice when there’s wide spaces to put the glue.  I don’t put glue on every area.

I love the PVA glue Cindy sells. I put it in the Ultrafine tip bottles with the pin top for this. (links below)  Tombow Mono Multi comes in 2nd place right now!  I can’t give it up completely yet! hehe

So glad for a day to recognize Father’s.  My dad added so much to my life… so many good memories…a great man of God.  Thankful for the wonderful Father my husband is to our daughter’s too, Happy Dad’s day Tim!

Hope you had some fun creating masculine cards this weekend too! or earlier…for the ones of you that aren’t last minute looloos like me! haha

Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s some links to what I used for this card…(scroll down for the SSS sale post and link, today’s the last day!)

Memory Box Lighthouse Collage and Simon Says Stamp Mystery SALE!!!

Good evening if you’re reading email this late or good morning if you check in tomorrow! I got this card ready to post this morning but then Robotics started.  Two of our grandsons are big into Robotics and their teams made it to Super Regionals that started yesterday and goes through tomorrow afternoon.  Well, there’s life streaming and I tend to ‘get into it’!   So there went the afternoon! hehe

Then I found out about this sale @ Simon Says Stamp and as soon as I hit publish I’m going shopping! It’s my birthday month after-all!!!  I would love it if you click through my site!  As an affiliate I made a small incentive to keep linking to stores and it doesn’t cost the shopper/you any extra.

So here’s the deal…

I already did a test and one company I have a need list for is in the mystery brands!! YAY!  (Altenew and My Favorite Things)

ok – back to my boring card after hearing about this exciting sale. ha

Here’s a close up…

At first I didn’t like this card.  I’m not really a yellow person but it’s grown on me.  I used Squeezed Lemonade regular Distress ink and probably Salty Ocean for the blue…isn’t it crazy that I’d remember the yellow color! 😀

I’ll link up what I used below…

Thanks for stopping in and hope you have time to shop too!  Enjoy the weekend!  I envision some more live streaming in my day tomorrow or if the weather permits we’ll be driving to watch IRL.  It gets pretty intense!  😀

Memory Box Grand Stag Oval Frame , Pine Branch Oval Frame, Country Road Oval Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  I needed a masculine birthday card so I revisited some of the fabulous Memory Box nature dies that combine so well.

I love die cutting the Memory Box white notecards…a beautiful white card…just the right weight and die cuts beautiful.  I linked to the white A2 size notecards below. I used 3 for this card with scraps leftover that I keep and use for other cuts/cards.  Starlitstudio carries most of the colors.

The red plaid for happy birthday is from the Simple Stories Winter Wonderland 6×6 paper pad. (I couldn’t find it to link to)

I inked up the card base with a little Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool. I glued the Double Stitched Frame directly to the card. The oval dies were inked with Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs using a mini ink blending tool and raised up with mounting tape.  Happy Birthday was glued directly on the top.

A fun Winter, masculine birthday card that you could glam up to look like clean, sparkly snow.  I suppose, since it’s March, I’m not supposed to use that ‘snow’ word anymore this year. hehe  Really, this card could work for any season with a few changes.

Two boy birthday cards…

Hi everyone!  How’s your end of Summer going? I keep getting sidetracked! lol  Trying to make more room here and there and clearing out stuff but really not ending up with that much more room!  Why?!  I think I’m pretty good at it! lol Oh well….I’ll keep trying.

And the other thing…how come if you use one scrap it seems like two more appear! lol

This is Corrin’s birthday card for this year… He turned 8 years old!  and yes, he is a cute blonde…that Summer bleached blonde funky hair cut kind of boy, concerned about the frogs etc. lol

I linked up to this stamp below but it’s discontinued…sorry about that but I have to use my stash too and I have to show you anyway cuz it’s a cute card! lol

I stamped him with Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out by hand but hey, I got a really good deal on a Scan n Cut 350 machine and I really like it you guys!!!  Shirley has been telling me about it and you know how we influence each other!!!  Thank you Shirley! lol  So next time, I’m cutting these bad boys and anything else I don’t have the dies for, with this new toy!  I cut out some digital images and the granddaughters cut out some hand drawn images with it.  Gena’s clouds were super cute!

Here’s a picture of the digital images I cut out with it…

ok – back to birthday cards…

This is Henry’s birthday card for this year…he turned 11!!!  Doesn’t seem possible!  He loves games! He’s great driving the gator around too, mowing the lawn and loves to read.

Shoot me now! lol  This is another die set that is discontinued and so is the stamp set. boo.  The die set is called Game Controller and the stamp set is called Level Up, both by My Favorite Things…so don’t be mad at me! lol

I saw a card made up when I googled the stamp name,  I loved it so I made it very similar to Elaine’s!  Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!

Both boys liked their cards!  yay!  June and July are both big birthday months for our family…September we have 3 so a few weeks break from birthday cards!

Although, I made a card, copied myself, that a friend requested for her aunt’s 90th birthday.  She started dairy farming when she was 50 yrs old!  Click on over to my Instagram to see a super short video of it. I put the tractor on a wobble this time.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

Thanks so much for stopping by stamping friends!  I appreciate it so much!

I’m trying out the new LinkDeli links today…a trial to see if they will work on a wordpress.com blog….so click away! lol Pretty sure it won’t blow up! lol

MFT Warm and Fuzzy Birthday card…

Hi and welcome to a beautiful Summer’s eve campfire! This set is so cute, can’t believe it’s the first time I’ve used it.  The kids have used it but me, I’m the last one!  Now it’s retiring but we know there’s always more cute coming… You can still find it HERE and the dies HERE…hurry if you want them!

This was our grandson Cedryk’s 5th birthday card.  They live in the country and at night they’ll go visit the cows in the gator… the cows love to come talk to Cedryk! lol  Actually Ced talks to them and they listen!  lol

I used Distress Oxide inks for the sky and grass ink blendingwater dripped on and dabbed off for the faint spots in the sky.  Puffy cloud dies, you can find them HERE.

So cute!  Love that little hedgie!  I colored the images with Copic Markers on MFT  Sweet Tooth Card stock.  I have a little trouble with the copics bleeding on it but I like how easy it blends. A basic A2 size card.

Sharing my card on some challenge blogs…
