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 Holiday Lamp Post Frame and Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame Christmas Cards…

Peace… we talk about it so much at Christmas but I couldn’t help but think of it today, being 9/11.  I truly don’t see it ever being humanly possible because of  fallen man but peace in your soul works for me.  My daughter just shared this with us and it spoke to me too!

I hope I remember this quote!

Some more about this card…The NEW Memory Box Holiday Lamp Post Frame die…So beautiful!  I tucked in the NEW poppystamps Tree Line Hill behind it… so versatile.  I die cut two of the Lamp Post Frame…green and white.  Cut the white one apart so I could adjust the white to show a wee bit behind the green.  Then I went ahead and glued the rest of the white circle behind for the extra dimension…why waste the cut you know! *smile*

The little red bird is from the NEW Memory Box Delicate Pine Frame die.  Cut in white and colored with a Copic R46 marker. A little yellow on the lamp post glass too. (I think these little birds are going to show up a lot around here! lol)

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Peace Cheshire Script die 3 times and glued them together and then glued it to a strip of white cardstock that I mounted over the snowflake from the NEW Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame die.  It’s a beauty!

Another shot of it… I must say I love this card and hope you do too! lol  It’s an A2 size and will mail for one postage stamp.

TIP: I’ve been mailing my A2 size cards in A6 envelopes.  I think they hold up better traveling in that larger size, the corners don’t get bent going through the machine and from being dropped.  Still only one stamp to go!

I have another card to share with the NEW Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame but I used the square frame from the New Memory Box Holiday Lamp Post Frame die too.  These sets all mix and match beautifully!

A simple 4 ¼ inch square card. Easy to mail for one stamp in an A2 or A6 envelope.

Here’s the peace word die again too…a silver foil cut on top of two white cardstock cuts… glued together and then glued to the card.  I did mount the circle with Scotch foam mounting tape.

IRL these cards are a little more blue-ish…

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing a little ‘peace’ with me.  Take care.

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 Holly Flourish and Peace Circle…

Happy first day of the week to you! I was inspired to make this card for the Muse Christmas Visions Challenge this week!  I loved the inspiration card and I want to make more because it was just that inspiring of a card!  ETA – my card was a star!  Thank you ladies!

Pretty straight forward card… I die cut the Peace Circle in the piece of black cardstock, cut to 5 x 3 ¾.  Then I die cut the Peace Circle and the Holly Flourish out of watercolor paper and painted them with Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I spattered them with the gold paint in the set before piecing it into the card and gluing the holly on top.

I don’t think the bow die is available anymore but I wanted some more gold on it…hopefully you have another die or even a piece of gold ribbon if you want to recreate this card.

Dies I used to make this card….

Holly Flourish and Peace Circle

I taped the black panel to an A2 size piece of gold metallic cardstock.

An extra fun challenge cuz, it’s Christmas themed!

Memory Box Be Jolly and Alphine Trees Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Look at this cute bunny from the new Memory Box Be Jolly stamp set. I had fun with it and am looking forward to using the rest of the set and the other new set… a great size for coloring!

I love all the nature dies from Memory Box but I might have to say that this Alpine Trees dies is one of my very favorites of the trees!  I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite, favorite though! lol

I colored with the Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set for the first time.  I like it!  Even spattered with the white paint in the set and that paint brush I was telling out about in my post before this one.  I did mix a couple greens to get that tree color, oh and a blue and green to get the water, scarf and present colors.  Rather fun and easy to use.

The sentiment is from the set and I stamped it with the MISTI and Ranger Black Archival ink… Happy with this sweet scene!

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…
