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!

Memory Box Antique Corner Rose Label and Antique Leaf Label Thank You Card…

Hi eveyone!  Are you enjoying the NEW Memory Box release this time?  So many fun flower dies!  yay!

Today I die cut everything in white and colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers.  The flower pieces from the Antique Corner Rose Label die are colored with R81, 83 and the center dots on the two largest with R85.  The leaves on both the Antique Corner Rose and Antique Leaf Label die are colored with G24.

I pieced the dies together with the right side face down so I could put mounting tape over the back sides. Small pieces…I always check to make sure there isn’t any hanging over and if there is, I trim from the front and cut the excess at a slant so it doesn’t show.  On this one, I left the pieces hanging over on purpose so they’d catch the frames, then trimmed them all… works great!

I used the medium size of the new Pinpoint Butterfly Trio and left it white!

I stamped thank you and terrific from the new Big and Little Words clear stamp set on the label using the MISTI with Ranger Archival black ink.

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers ink.  I started out with the mini ink blending tool but then changed to the make up brush oval type brush to get the edges feathered out better.

Spattered it with water, dried it with the heat tool, spattered on some Hero Arts White Watercolor paint, then some black paint, drying in-between colors.

I’m really happy with it and will close with telling you all thank you for being so terrific!  Cardmakers are the best!

It’s a sunshiny day here!  A rare thing this Spring.  Maybe I can get out for a walk! Take care and thanks for stopping by!

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!

SSS ‘Celebrate You Release’ Filigree Message Circle Die with MB Flower Dies…

It’s time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp! They sent me their new Filigree Message Circle die to play with.  Kinda fitting since it was designed by Memory Box.

So I set to work and used a couple Memory Box flower dies too!

I used sentiments from the SSS last release, Tiny Words Encouragement clear stamp set. Links below…

I wanted to embellish the circle so I diecut the NEW Memory Box Daisy Silhouette die in white and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

YG17 Matches Taylored Expressions Peapod cardstock perfectly!  I’ll link below.

Here’s a top view because there is dimension to the card! 😀

The top layer is Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock.

A close up…I think this picture captures the sweetness of the card the best! 😀

Next photo, the cards together…a variety of things you can do with this die.  Use your other circle dies to frame it etc. My white die cut panel is popped up to the card base with foam mounting tape and the kraft die cut panel is adhered directly to the card base.

I have this Lawn Fawn Inside Out Circle die set and love how it framed this Filigree Message Circle die.

I wanted to embellish with flowers again and liked the idea of tulips cuz it’s May and tulips are big in the area we live.

This is the Memory Box Springtime Tulips die. I clipped out the tulips and used them without the circle they come with.

A top view… I ink blended the flower parts that come with the die to back the tulips, with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I ink blended the card base with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink.

The leaves are inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.


Sweet, feminine cards that anyone would enjoy receiving.  YAY!

Now for a bit of shopping info too… this is like an after Mother’s Day present to oneself!  Gotta love that!

Memory Box NEW Brilliant Sunflower Die Cards…

Hi everyone!  Here’s what I’ve been doing so far this week.  The new dies from Memory Box arrived and I got busy!

I’ve always liked sunflowers and holly hocks.  I suppose because they look free spirited! haha

For this card, I used the NEW Brilliant Sunflower and added the square frame from the Splendid Rose Frame from this year’s earlier release.  I LOVE how these mix and match!

I made a short video of how I emboss the detail in the sunflower head…watch it here or on You Tube.

 

I really like how embossing deepens the detail.

I inked edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini round ink blending tools.

I colored the center of the embossed yellow piece with color pencil and added white dots with a white gel pen.

Some quick die piecing in the corners….heat embossed sentiment is from the NEW Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set. It’s made to coordinate with some of the other new dies too so you’ll be seeing it used a lot! yay!

Stamped with Versamark, in the MISTI stamping tool.

You brighten my day!  It’s true!

I used the NEW Misti Cut Align tool to cut the sentiment strip… I REALLY like having that tool!  Tools are everything!

Some enamel dots…

So then, cuz I had experimented and cut so many sunflowers in different colors, I decided to use the white cut!

I dry embossed the yellow flower head that’s behind the white outline die… I love how it looks, it just gives it a little roundness.  I glue it just in the center so the petals can kinda look free-ish.

A Distress Oxide background in Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint using the cheap make up brushes to blend it on the card-base.  I’ll link to the ones the stamp company is selling but I’m using the cheap ones and love them!

A happy, cute card! 😀 We all need a little sunshine in-between rains these days!

The sentiment is from the same NEW set as above… I am loving this set! I had fun making these two cards!

Both cards are 4 ½ inches square.  You could mail this size in an A6 envelope or a 5 inch square one.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re enjoying the flowers in paper or in dirt!

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!

Here’s some more great shopping! This is good through Sunday. Penny Black, Ranger, Lawn Fawn,  Sizzix, just to name a few.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Cardmaking Day! (I know, it’s supposed to be Scrapbooking Day! lol  Every day is cardmaking day!)

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!
