Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends.  I have a fairly simple card to share with you… well, I kept adding things! lol

Today is the new release at Simon Says Stamp… it’s festive and Christmasy for the most part!  I’ll link you up below to what I used.

The new stamp they sent me to show is the background here, Leaves and Berries Cling Mount Stamp.

I gold heat embossed it and then blended on 3 colors of Distress Oxide Ink. Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac.  Weird… the Lilac kinda wiped of when I went over it to get the ink off the heat embossed gold. I barely used any lilac though… good thing! haha I spattered with water drops using the Tim Holtz mister water bottle.

Then I just painted in the leaves and berries with the Gansai Tambi watercolors that I still had out on my desk.  Oh, I stamped on Strathmore 400/Best the brown pad of watercolor paper.

I die cut the panel with SSS Stitched Rectangles.

I embossed in Ranger Detail gold, the background and the sentiment.  ‘Thankful for you’ is from the SSS Autumn Greetings clear stamp set.

I used three small circle cuts from the New Memory Box Stylish Frame Trio die set.  I die cut them in TE Premium cardstock, links below, Candy Corn, Granny Smith and Peapod.

I die cut leaves from the cardstocks too using the New poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set.  Then I added some small enamel dots.

And that’s it!

Check out the new release!  I’ll link below in the linkdeli links below, the first one.  I’m not sure the links in my written post work so I’ll try this.

Thank you for stopping by!

Two poppystamps and Memory Box Autumn Cards…

Hi everyone!  Some Autumn cards I’ve made and haven’t gotten posted yet!

The poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil is so pretty!  There’s also two die sets of leaves that match this die… I’ll link to them below in case you’re interested.

The sentiment I used this time is from poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear set.

I used Oxide inks to blend the rectangle I stamped on.

The leaves were blended with oxide inks but I wasn’t happy with them so I colored over them with Copics!

The background behind the frame I watercolored with regular distress inks.

My next card ended up being one thing after another! I watercolored a background with regular distress inks but it was pretty dark.  I tried stamping the leaves stamp from the Memory Box Grateful Autumn stamp set directly on it but I didn’t like it.  So I gold heat embossed a piece of vellum and adhered it to the background with teeny lines of glue.  I wasn’t thrilled with that either so I colored the leaves directly on the front of the vellum with Copics!  Copics to the rescue again! lol

I want to see what I can come up with this stamp set with another try!  It’s so pretty and so many amazing stamps and sentiments in the set!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy cardmaking to you!

poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil Card…

Hi everyone!  We interrupt the Christmas cards for a Fall card! It’s getting close to that time, when the leaves start changing and definitely dance in the wind!

I love this pretty NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame.  I laid the stencil over the die cut and inked the leaves with regular Distress Inks and the mini ink blender tools. The colors I used were Forest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

Then I laid the stencil over the actual thin metal die and using the ink pad, tapped some ink onto the leaf vein lines.  Then I put the die cut back in the metal die and pressed the paper into the lines…that’s how I ended up with ink in the veins here and there. They look like dying leaves! lol

I die cut a rectangle background piece to fit behind the frame with the Memory Box Basic Rectangles dies.  I inked it with Distress ink also and did some water spatters, let it dry and then gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear stamp set.

I was going to just add some gold cord and tie a bow but it hit me to try wrapping the cord up the side of the die cut!  I liked it a lot and thought it made the leaves truly look like they were dancing in the wind! YAY!

I hope you’re having fun being creative these days… it’s been all hot and muggy again here…makes it easy to stay inside!

Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box Ruffled Poinsettia and poppystamps Festive Noel Cards…

Hi everyone!!!  I’m so excited to get on here and start sharing the cards I’m working on with the NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!  YES!  My favorite time of year!

I had to use this gorgeous NEW Ruffled Poinsettia first!  I LOVE it!  So, so pretty!

I think it’s pretty straight forward but if you have any questions holler!  Nothing new as far as techniques go.

The sentiment is from the NEW clear stamp set called Mistletoe Swag.  I love the images and the name! lol

I die cut the largest shape from the NEW Stylish Frame Trio die set two times and off set them.  They are only glued under the poinsettia.  I’m in love with this set too!  😀

Then I die cut two of the NEW Silverdale Branch and trimmed them down to tuck under the petals.  Yes, I love this die too!

My next card…

This beautiful NEW Festive Noel die from poppystamps is the only die I used on this card!

I die cut it in Gold mirror/foil cardstock and in red glitter cardstock.

The pattern paper is from a few years ago but I’m going to link up some new patterns that I think would work beautifully also!

I used foam tape that I cut down to fit on the back of this… very easy to do because the letters are wide!  YAY!

I got carried away with pictures.. hehe

Noel is an A2 size card and the Ruffled Poinsettia is somewhere between in A6 and A7.  It fill fit in an A7 envelope for sure.

Bring out the Christmas CD’s and start your cardmaking!

Thank you for stopping by!  I’ve been sad to not post yet this week but we had a family deal we had to take care of…not pleasant but now I can make cards again. So thankful for cardmaking and cardmaker friends!  I’ll be back soon!

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,

A Lawn Fawn I Scream, You Scream, Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  I should be doing housework but here I am writing a post because I’m behind getting birthday cards posted and it’s time for new things!  ok – I wonder when there aren’t new things in this papercrafting industry!

Here’s a card for one of our grands that just turned 13!

I was inspired by Nancy’s card here. I don’t have the pattern paper but otherwise, I just plain copied her… such an awesome design!

I used oxide inks on Bristol Smooth card, some water splatters, die cutting and gluing… very straight forward!

I ended up with several photos so I’ll just post away…

So happy with the color combo… I think you could use any Summer colors though for this!

You are so cool, pretty much sums it up!

So go get inky!  lol

I’m going to link up to some challenges!

Happy Little Stampers – August, anything goes with dies
