Forget Me Not Blooms with Everglade Collage Hello Card…

Hellooooooo!  I didn’t melt off the face of the earth!  It’s hot and humid here though.. I easy could! lol

A clean and simple card to share with you today… I fell in love with this Forget Me Not Blooms die when I saw it made up… so whimsical and cute! I bought the flower pots too but they didn’t make it on this card.  Next time!

A really straight forward card.  I used thin mounting tape from Starlit Studio (link in the sidebar) to adhere the top panel to the kraft cardstock A2 size card base.

Flowers (available at Starlit Studio also) were die cut and mounted with a few pieces of mounting tape that I cut to fit…just random pieces, not a lot.

I cut the strips with a Tim Holtz Tonic trimmer and stapled them together with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

A ‘lightweight’ Summer card to wish a simple hello to someone you care about.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Simon Says Stamp NEW Release Good Vibes!!!

Cute or what?!!!  This pup has the right idea for staying cool this Summer!

Simon Says Stamps sent me this super cute stamp set to create with from their new release Good Vibes. So I set to Copic coloring!

The name of this set is Summer Cuddly Critters, you can check it out HERE.

I just had to grab the mirror silver cardstock for the ‘shades’.  So funny… when you hold the card up, you can see yourself in them, just like the real thing!

Super easy card really… a Lawn Fawn Stitched sun die… the MFT Beach die set and the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die that I love to use!

I stamped in the MISTI with Ranger Archival black ink for the sentiments and Memento Tuxedo Black for the images I colored.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy shopping the new release HERE!  Some fab stuff again!  yay!

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!

Embossing Paste With a Stencil…

Celebrate! Hello everyone! I watched a video by Shauna from the Foiled Fox and loved her cards.  I don’t have the same things but I want the stencil she used too! lol Her cards are so pretty…I just had to make some!  The theme for this months swap at stamp club was anniversary so I had added incentive to make!

I used a Memory Box stencil and had to tape off some of it like she did, so go through your collection and be amazed at what you come up with… like I was!

I won’t explain much because her video tells easier than I can write it up…

I’m really happy with my two cards… already used this gold one (for the card swap)!  I used gold glitter embossing powder from Judikins.

The celebrate die is from birchpressdesigns.

 

The next card is the same technique but using Silver glitter embossing powder…

I wish you could see them IRL…so pretty!

This one I used a Simon Says stamp die and stamp set for the sentiment.

Holler if you have any questions.  What’s old is new again!  Gotta love revisiting the old techniques.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hey before you click away…. be watching…NEW Memory Box and poppystamps coming very soon, like tomorrow! hehe

Memory Box Cheery Flower Collage Meets Carta Bella Spring Market…

Hi everyone! I was inspired to join in the fun at CAS(e) This Sketch card challenge.  I loved the sketch and the inspiration from the team.

So I headed from my computer/library room,  down to the other end of the hall to my stamp room and got to work… somewhere between the rooms, I guess my brain didn’t quite remember the sketch exactly.  Glad this isn’t a test! lol

I had fun using this die again and this fun 6×6 paper pad that is new to me this Spring.

I copic colored the flowers, leaves and stems, added a little bit of white gel pen and yellow dots in the flower centers.

I used mounting tape to layer up the top panel that I die cut a circle out of with the Memory Box Circle Basics die set.

Then I thought, add a border and this new poppystamps Pierced Borders die was delighted to be used again!  The paper and border remind me of the old Susan Branch stamp and paper lines from years ago.

Just enough dimension to add interest but still be A2 size and mailable.  I had to tie on some kraft twine…sometimes it just calls to me. lol

The longest part of making the card was deciding what sheets of paper to use from the pad! lol  I changed my mind a few times. 😀

Linking to some challenges…

Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge – favorite thing (dies)

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – All Things Bright and Beautiful

Word Art Wednesday Challenge – anything goes

Happy Little Stamper June anything goes with dies challenge

Cropstop June Link Party #40 – use product from a co. they sell

Birch Press Design Viva Layer Die Set Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  It’s a big day… it’s Friday and I’m celebrating that I get to write a blog post, finish a couple birthday cards and go to stamp club this afternoon!  I can’t believe another month has rolled around though!

I had fun making this card a few weeks ago and almost forgot to post it!  Crazy me!

So when you have little die cut dots all over your work surface what do you do?  Paper crafters make a background of course! haha

I love these colors together but I need to tell you, that is dark brown as in chocolate! lol  Not black.  Dark brown always looks black in photos to me.  Naughty child! haha  I used Memory Box Pool, Meadow, Vanilla Bean, white and kraft notecards for this card.

I love working with dies and these layering ones are so fun…kinda like people!  No two alike! Just keep cutting and playing with layering them together.

This Viva Layer Die set is three large intricate dies!  I think this one will be gorgeous made up as ornaments for Christmas!

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!  Hope you get some time to create today!  Be back soon!  I have more to share!
