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

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!

MFT Stamps Pure Innocence ‘Start Each Day with a Whee’ Swing Card…

Hi everyone! When this cute gal came out awhile back I knew I had to have her!  We have one granddaughter that especially loves to swing and she loves cards too!  I love it when the idea for personalizing a card comes easy!

Here’s my version of the swinging ‘whee’ girl in action…she’s cute!  You can see it a lot better on You Tube, HERE

I basically followed MFT’s video but I used dies I already owned.  I added a tree trunk from the Memory Box Weeping Willow Tree Cutting Plate but I see it’s discontinued.  There are other tree dies though that would work… like this one HERE.  You could also hand cut one really easy.  I haven’t seen anyone else using a tree trunk but I think it makes it look more realistic… when I first saw the cards made up, I thought weird, green clouds! lol

I used poppystamps Stitched Cloudline dies and die cut them and the grass borders from Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock.  I’m really happy with how they turned out!

I stamped her in the MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and die cut her then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers. Hair E21, E43, 44, 47, Skin E000, YR000, E00, E01, R20, Shirt E02, 04, Shorts B 91, 93, 95, 97, Shoes T1,3, 5, Swing seat and rope E20’s, white space between the swing ropes is colored with B21.

I stamped the sentiment from the set in the MISTI with Black Archival ink.

My cardbase is Gumball cardstock from Bazzill or Taylored Expressions has it also. Links below…

Thanks for ‘swinging’ by today! Holler if you have any questions!

Here’s some links to stuff I used to make this card…thank you so much for supporting me and my blog!  I appreciate it!

poppystamps Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame Card…

Edited to Add… in case you noticed the double As in the sentiment… I added a bird over one!  Here’s the new photo…

Pam Sparks Greenhouse Potted Plants and Shelves BIRD added over A

Hi again! Another fun sidekick die from poppystamps.  I’m not sure I did it justice but I had fun!

I die cut the frame in a piece of woodgrain pattern paper. Colored over the flower pot parts with Copic markers, BG53, 57, YG 25, 17, YR18, E99 and the birds with BG53, 57, E57, E99. I die cut the frame from a piece of cardstock and glued the pattern paper to it, making it sturdier. Then adhered it to the cardbase.

I die cut the vines in white cardstock and colored them with the same greens, YG25 and YG 17.

I stamped a sentiment from the poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.  Then on the inside I’m going to stamp ‘celebrate your day’ and ‘happy birthday’ from the same set.  I LOVE it when there’s sentiments that work together in a stamp set!

I put Glossy Accents on the pots and left them to dry…then decided it needed something else, so I stamped in the white dots very carefully.  hmmm… not sure I should’ve but to late now! haha

Here’s an iPhone ‘before the dots’ picture.   WOW, we got new phones and man does this thing take good pictures!  All I did was crop, resize and put my name on it!  whoa! (a little different color tone)

Even as good as the photos are… it’s still better IRL!  😀

Memory Box update…There’s an even newer release now and mine just arrived!  Stores already have them in stock so be sure to check them out! HERE they are at Starlitstudio.net.  If you want to see the cards Memory Box has already made up for samples, go HERE and click on each item to see a sample, then back to shop… pretty cards!

poppystamps Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame Card…

Hi everyone! Playing with new poppystamps dies this week and a new stamp too!

I inked up the new poppystamps 5 ½ x 5 ½ inch Picnic Plaid stamp with three Distress Oxide Inks using the Tim Holtz travel stamp platform.  I used the panel inked with Forest Moss for this card. I like it a lot!  It stamped really well. Easy to clean up because the stamp platform cover comes off, I was able to take it directly to the sink to wash the ink off between changing ink colors. Dried with a clean, damp shammy.

I die cut the plaid panel with one of the Memory Box Rectangle Basics dies to match up behind the Sidekick frame.

Using the stencil that comes with the die, I inked up the poppies with regular Distress inks and the make up brushes that look like toothbrushes. I used Barn Red, Festive Berries and Fired Brick.  Then I went in with a color pencil and drew over the embossed lines from the die. I colored the stems with G95 Copic Sketch Marker. It matched the Forest Moss Oxide ink perfectly!

I die cut and colored a couple extra ‘parts’ from the complete die to embellish the sentiment.

‘Sending Happy Wishes’ is from the new poppystamps Springtime Greetings clear stamp set and stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink in a MISTI stamping tool.

Hope your Spring is shaping up all pretty and full of flowers! There’s an even newer release from Memory Box now and I’m hoping there’s some on the way to me as I type!  Stores already have them in stock so be sure to check them out! HERE they are at Starlitstudio.net  If you want to see the cards Memory Box has already made up for samples, go HERE and click on each item to see a sample… pretty cards!

Another card to share tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
