poppystamps Poinsettia Delights and Outline Joy Card…

Hi everyone! I wish that was my truck IRL!  So cute…there’s a Christmas tree in the bed. I found that at Menards last year in their Christmas scene decoration section of the store.

The card!  This is one of the poinsettia cards that I told you last week that I had to get finished!  One more to go!  Well probably more than one but another one that is already started.

I stamped the images from this NEW poppystamps Poinsettia Delights stamp set and heat embossed them with white powder on Kraft cardstock.  Then I watercolored them with Tombow Dual Brush markers and Stampin Up’s Real Red Marker.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Joy Outline die in woodgrain paper and black cardstock, then inked the edges of both with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I tied on this cotton cord… it’s from the grocery store!  It was so fun to buy something for stamping at the grocery store! lol

I roughed up the edges of the pattern papers with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool, then inked around with Gathered Twigs too… love that color!

This ended up being an A7 size card.  5 inches x 7 inches.

Hello Bluebird Birthday Card…

 

Hi everyone…it’s been a fun Summer with our kids and g-kids. This is the card I made for Cedryk who turned six in July.  He loves to fish with his dad and gpa and loves his kitties and dog and everything on wheels! lol

I had so much fun with this… I die cut the Pond Builder Set in Strathmore 400 BEST coldpress watercolor paper and watercolored the pieces with Gansai Tambi 36 color wc set.  I mixed color right on my Tonic craft mat and then spattered on the extra with my favorite brush for spattering… I’ll link it up below… it’s the round #4 in the set.

I stamped the colored images on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, die cut them, then colored them with Copic Sketch markers. TIP: I always die cut before I color… if you need something larger to hold on to, use a temporary adhesive and stick the cut to a larger piece of paper or cardstock.

Isn’t he just the cutest and that kitty!!!

 

It was hard to narrow down the photos for this one…this scene just made me photo happy! lol

I hope it makes you smile too!  We were having some super hot and humid days but wow, now it won’t stop raining and being humid.  Yep, I’m from Iowa, we’re always talkin’ ’bout the weather!  I don’t like to go places in the rain people! lol  I came up the front stairway last night and bam… the roof is leaking. ugh.  Water is supposed to stay outside and in ponds you know!  So I’m feeling whiny baby.  sigh

Thank goodness for cute cards!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and see you soon…bring on the snow! haha

Waffle Flower Sandy Toes, Neat and Tangled Hello Summer Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Switching it up completely today with a Summer birthday card.  When I saw this Waffle Flower Sandy Toes stamp set I HAD to have it cuz it’s so much like our kids boating and swimming.  Then I saw Channin’s video using this set and I was thrilled with her card and wanted to sit down and make it right away! I didn’t have the paints she used at the time and used Oxide inks instead.  Excuse to go shopping, which I did, but then life happened and I just finally finished this up with the sentiments and gluing it together yesterday. Thank you so much Channin!

How triumphant this flippin’ flip flop guy is that it’s Summer!  (I don’t like hot and humid, so just send me pictures of the fun, thank you! lol)

I painted the characters with Zig Clean Color Brush markers on watercolor paper.  Contrary to most that love painting on Bristol with these,  I prefer coldpress watercolor paper, figures huh. lol

Such fun… this card just makes a person celebrate living, you know!  I’m trying to learn…Summer is a state of mind. haha hehe

This is an A2 size card and will be a very belated birthday card.

Linking up below to what I used and thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of this fleeting Summer!  I feel like the year is dashing by at warp speed, whatever that is!  Where’s the time to feel the sand between your toes, I gotta make cards! haha

Memory Box Astro Suit and Starry Sky Border Dies Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m kinda late getting in on the galaxy background trend!  One of our granddaughters made this one for me one day when she was over playing with Color Burst Powders!  So fun she made me one to use!  You know how it is parting with stuff you make sometimes!  😀

This little Astro Suit die makes up so cute.  I kinda got carried away with silver embossing powder… I really like the card though.  A lot of silver but it gets the message across!  You are a star, in case you didn’t know that! haha

I did add some of the clear Goosebumps Spray, I’ll link it up below if I can find it somewhere.  Mirror card for the die cut Deep Space Planets that he’s standing on and the Starry Sky Border die cut into the Galaxy Background watercolor piece.

The Border die is the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die from poppystamps.

I die cut the flesh in card-stock and a piece of acetate.  Adhered them together with a squish of Ranger Glossy Accents.

Some spatters of Heidi Swapp Gold Spray and I finally quit!  hehe

Not my usual card making style but fun and I’m sure I’ll use it at some point…everyone needs to know they are a star!

Thanks for stopping by! and thanks Lilli for the background! Happy soaking up the sun to you!

Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release!

Hi everyone!  I’m excited to be sharing two cards I made with a die that Simon Says Stamp sent me to play with from their new release Fluttering By!

Here I combined the NEW Flickering Butterflies die and SSS Sending and Wishing stamp and die sets with Memory Box Devonshire Wreath and Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies.

I made a Distress Ink smooshed background on watercolor paper, kept it very simple with one color of ink!

Pretty sure it was Peacock Feathers ink and a Memory Box Pool notecard for the card-base

A little thin foam mounting tape cut to fit under the flowers on the wreath and a little black gem in the centers.

Here the Flickering Butterflies took to the forest! Using three pieces of brown textured card-stock I die cut one with SSS Birch Tree Window die and adhered it directly to the white card-base.  Next up is the Memory Box Everglade Collage die cut and mounted with thin foam mounting tape. The top piece is cut with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die and the Woodland Glimpse Collage die. It is mounted on top with thin foam mounting tape also.

I die cut the NEW SSS Flickering Butterflies from a Memory Box Pool notecard and the poppystamps Brush hello is die cut from a Memory Box Sage notecard.

It’s close but this will still go through the mail with one postage stamp!  yay!  I wish you could see it IRL!  😀

Thanks for stopping by and have fun looking and shopping this fabulous NEW release!

Here’s what I used and thank you so much! Linking to the MB Catalina wreath because SSS doesn’t have the Devonshire right now.

Memory Box Painted Flower Stems…

Hi everyone! I’m sure this Spring is finding you hustling to get stuff done!  That’s the way it is here anyway.  I think I told you that we lost 3 trees Nov. 6, 2107.  They were in what the city calls their right a way, so they cut them down… Emerald Ash bore. Sob.  So it’s been crazy trying to figure out and find replacement trees!  We did it though and now have 3 new trees that we paid big bucks for in what they consider their property. sigh.  oh well… gotta have trees!  Shade!!!  Cuz HOT is coming! lol

I did get some cards made to share here though!  yay!

This one is using the new Memory Box Painted Flower Stems die... I went CAS (clean and simple) again… die cut in watercolor paper and used Zig Watercolor brush markers. Do you remember Memory Box Dave’s watercolor dip video?  Thinking this die would be fun for that technique too!  True, you could do this up a million ways! lol  and for a lot of occasions!

I went with sympathy this time because I need to get some in my stash.  The sentiment I used is from the poppystamps Peony Stems and Blossoms set.  Love this set!  I stamped it in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  That’s my go to black right now.

Hobby Lobby watercolor paper for the cardbase and die cut.  I just ink blended on some Distress ink in the background.  I think it was Broken China.  Then spattered on some of the watered down Zig color that I scribbled on my craft mat.

I did use the thin mounting tape that I link to below, to adhere the die cut. Placing it behind the flowers and the base.

Thanks for stopping by today and HEADS UP!!!  BIG SALE going on at Starlitstudio.net!  click over, click on clearance in the sidebar on the left.
