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!

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. 😀

Stampendous Hydrangea Garden Tri-fold Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends! How about some paper hydrangeas to hold me over until we have some real life ones! I have to tell you, it’s looking good for some flowers from our 3 new bushes we planted last year though.  whew.

So a simple thinking of you card using Stampendous Hydrangea Garden stamp and die sets.

I used a piece of Smooth Bristol card from a 9 x 12 pad, cut to 4 ⅝ inches x 12 inches.

Stamp and heat emboss the Hydrangea, in white, at one end, then die cut stopping at the wide part of the flower stamp.  The leaves are separate from the flower head, so I did have to glue them on underneath.

I stamped and die cut 2 extra of the single flower in the set and popped up one on the front and used the other inside… I love it there! Looks like it just landed there! hehe

I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a little water.

The sentiment is gold embossed and from the Stampendous Fresh Peony Cling Stamp set.  Sorry the sentiment is blurry…It was hard to get a picture because the flower end kinda sticks up a bit. It’s so pretty IRL!

Simon Says Stamp Leafy Circle Cards…

Hi everyone! WOWzer it’s a hot day in May for IA!  93˚!  eek!  So I’m inside writing a blog post.  I wanted to go on a walk but not if it means melting!

My cards today feature Simon Says Stamp’s new Leafy Circle die.  It’s from the latest fabulous release called ‘Sending Sunshine’.

What I did…I die cut a piece of 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock with SSS Stitch Frame die.  Then instead of cutting the die in the panel, I embossed it using the tan mat, shims and the multi purpose platform in my Big Shot like you would do an embossing folder.

Using the ink blending tools and 3 Distress ink colors, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint, I added color.  I thought it was so cool, I did the same technique (embossing/inking) for my next card but added a kraft color panel with the Leafy Circle cut in it over the top of the ink blended piece.  whew… run on sentence.

Hey, talking about inks made me remember this… 25% off Ranger right now at SSS, use code RANGER25

 

I stamped the sentiment on vellum with Ranger Archival ink, trimmed it and used the Glue Dots Vellum adhesive on the back, just gotta tell you, that worked slick.   Then I stamped explore nature on the white panel with the same ink.  Stamping for both using the MISTI.

 

I matted the white panel with a green rectangle die cut from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics set.  I love that teeny border.  Mounting tape on the back of that and placed on a top folded kraft color cardbase that I edged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

Linking my Explore Nature card to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – use more than one stamp

Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies

 

Next card…same wreath but I CASEd myself…brought back that Meadow Flower… can’t get enough of it I guess!


This time I ink blended with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks.  Colored the flower head with Copics and added three Nuvo White drops. I used mounting tape behind the flower, the flower stem leaves and the sending die cut.

Both of these cards are A2 size and good for snail mail!

poppystamps Meadow Flower and Stitch Wreath CAS card…

Here with a special delivery!  This simple sweet flower makes a statement against this stitch flower wreath.  I love it!  A little Copic Sketch Marker coloring with the G40’s and a Y15.  The little white dots are from a Signo White Gel Pen.

I think I could make this card next time in 30 minutes!  A record! lol  I have to tell you though, this washi tape was discontinued some time ago…like a couple years.  October Afternoon is the brand.  Some things are just timeless!  Other tapes or a sentiment on a card-stock strip would work just as well.  Check out SLS’s selection of new Alexandra Renke tapes… whoa, so cool!

I keep looking for buds on our new trees.  Tim says not to expect much but I want much! lol

Here’s some pictures of them… click to see them big.

Here he is bringing the first tree after he made the hole with the same truck…then back and forth until all 3 were in the ground. (I took the pictures from inside our house)

 

 

 

We have a red oak from several years ago on the other side of the white oak in the front.  Grow trees grow! Now the ground is tilled up and all new seed planted…lots of watering happening!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hang on to the little bit of April that’s left!  haha  Our oldest two grandsons are in Detroit at Worlds First Tech Robotics competition. I’m watching the live streaming…glued to the computer!  Anybody else have ppl there?  120 teams from 60 countries! While the big boys are competing, the two youngest are collecting buttons from the teams!  So fun!

poppystamps Rose Stem Collage card…

Hi everyone!  This is the only kind of flowers I have growing here! lol  I’ll have some hanging pots in a couple weeks though!

I love how this card turned out.  I’m don’t feel like I’m very good with color schemes but I’m drawn to this coral/pink color this year.

It’s just charming!  I didn’t put a sentiment yet because I loved it plain first of all but I think it’d be a lovely Mother’s Day or any occasion really.

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers,  R20, 21 and 22 for the pink/coral color, G40, 43 and 46 for the green.

I added some Doodlebug Limeade Pearls…classy little things. hehe  Shoot me now!  These pearls aren’t in the stores anymore!  So, I would tell you to color your white baby pearls with Copic markers or better yet, color them with alcohol ink.

The frame is the between part of the poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frames…don’t throw that part away!

Holler if you have any questions…this is an A2 size top folding card.

poppystamps Sending Scribbles Birthday Wreath card…

Last week I was playing around with stamps to make wreaths. I die cut a 3 ¾ inch circle, stuck the negative in the MISTI, marked the area where the first image kinda landed and then I kept moving my inner circle focal piece around to stamp the complete wreath.

Here’s a picture that might possibly live up to the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words! lol

I did have to mask off part of one to fill in a space.

I colored/painted the flowers with Distress Oxide inks. I don’t know that I would use this ink to color very often.  It tends to cover the black line you stamped if you’re not careful.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used the coordinating die set to cut out the word sending. I did use the thin mounting tape behind the die cut word. Another set I love!

A little Lawn Fawn Trimmings twine and some black Nuvo drops and the piece was pretty much done.  I cut a black piece of card-stock to 4 x 5 ¼ inch and mounted it to a top folding A2 card-base.

Linking my birthday wishes card to the following challenges…

Inspired by All the Little Things – photo inspiration

Stempelgarten Challenge – Spring

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Occasions

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Add some texture (nuvo drops and twine)

The Crazy Challenge – Spring

Addicted to Stamps and More – Make Your Mark

 

 

This card I stamped it the same way in the MISTI with the circle template I made but I stamped it so the black lines touched.  There was a little bit of space left at the bottom so I punched a couple 1/8th inch holes, added a piece of ribbon and tied a bow.

This one I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush pens doing wet on wet.  You can see what happens with that in the close up below! lol  It flows! No artist here! lol

 

I didn’t use a very good quality watercolor paper…just use the good stuff Pam! haha

The sentiment is from a neat Memory Box set called Prayers Sentiments…I really like how you can put the words together to say what you want.  There are several of these small sets.  Good deal! ok – I’ll shut up!

Linking thoughts and prayers card to the following challenges…

Word Art Wednesday – anything goes

Crafting From the Heart – anything goes

 

Thanks for stopping by! I think we’re supposed to be getting a perfect Spring day today! YAY!
