Today I have a thank you card that is quick and easy. I applied texture paste through the Birch Trees Stencil onto White cardstock. Stamp the fox and the bunny on watercolor paper and color the images. Cut out each of animals. Die cut the word Thank from Bubblegum cardstock. Stamp the word "you" from the Smile clear stamp set. Assemble card as shown.
As I write this post, it's another rainy Sunday in Maine. We seem to be stuck in a pattern of weekend rain. Hence, another rain card! This might make a good "sorry you're under the weather" card to send to a friend. This is just one of the cards we'll be making at the Memory Box Catalog Party I'm hosting Monday the 29th.
I've titled this post "the giant watering can in the sky" and it features the GARDEN WATERING CAN (die 98859) along with some STITCHED CLOUDS (die no. 30053) which are creating the SPLASHING PUDDLES (die no. 99062).
The SPLASHING PUDDLES background is cut from a piece of 12X12 Rolling Hills Memory Box paper from the Brioche line that I've been hanging onto. (I only have one piece left!) It is mounted on a Pool notecard.
The STITCHED CLOUDS are cut from Pool Distressed Dots paper and the smaller one is popped up with a dimensional foam dot.
The GARDEN WATERING CAN is cut/embossed in gold shimmer cardstock and mounted on a Wobble so it can move as if it is pouring down the rain from the sky.
All of this rain really helps the garden to grow...and the weeds, too!
Shake It Up features some of the latest Memory Box and PoppyStamps products (clear stamp sets with matching dies, doily dies and patterned papers)! You'll make three (3) A2-sized (4.25" x 5.5") cards and learn how to make shaker cards.
NOTE: This is NOT a coloring class, so you will need to bring your own pens, markers, Copics, colored pencils, etc. to color the images.
You can plan a BBQ even if it's not your birthday though! Pam here to celebrate birthdays and Summer with a fun scene card!
I cut a white piece of card-stock 4.25 in. x 11 in., scored and folded it for a top fold card base. Top fold cards are the easiest to photograph and another photo tip, if you're using natural light, be sure to pull up the blinds! Open blinds let in light but you'll be amazed how much better it is when you pull them all the way up and out of the way! Your camera will thank you! lol
oops! Got off track there for a minute, back to the card!
I die cut the Circle Forest Scene parts from cold press watercolor paper. Then I watercolored them, the grass/trees with Peerless and the grill, houses and clouds with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens.
I wish I'd used the Celebrate from this set because it's just enough larger. I didn't see it until I'd already stamped this one from poppystamps Into the Words set. 'It's your birthday' is from the same set.
Welcome to the blog today! Pam here to share a pretty floral border thank you card with you.
I started by stamping the beautiful Blooming Sketch Borderstampwith Ranger Archival Black ink on watercolor paper and coloring with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens.
After it was dry, I die cut the panel with the largest rectangle die from the Cross Stitched Frame Bordersdie set and layered it to an A2 card base.
I embossed the poppystamps Thank You sentiment with super fine white embossing powder on a black banner and stamped the friend sentiment directly on the watercolor paper with the MISTI stamp tool. Both are from the Hope and Thanks set.
I die cut the Pennington Rose Borderdie in white card-stock but just used the right end and one other rose from the cut to embellish above the banner. I added a few enamel dots in green. I love the fun touch the dots add to the mix.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a creative, relaxing Summer weekend!
Hello everyone from sunny southern California! Sherry here with a summery card for you today.
The water colored background was created using Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. I then sponged Peeled Paint through the Texture Scraped Paint stencil over one area of the background, and turned it once to create the cross hatch. I am loving this stencil!
I trimmed this background piece down and splattered some watered down Peeled Paint over the entire top before adding the Happiness stamp and the Flllipa Corner. I had some leftover background, and used it to cut the solid layer of the butterfly from the Cascadia Butterfly Trio set. The top layer is one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Exhibit Die which I snipped from the entire die cut piece, and it happens to match the solid butterfly.
The card was completed with a scattering of pink, green and yellow sequins. I adhered the assembled piece to a piece of warm white card stock that was cut smaller than the card base, then added that to the card base using foam tape.
This was a fun card to make, and I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by today!
Good Morning Happy Thursday! Today I am mom to an official 15 year old! EEEEK when did that happen? I swear she was just 3 years old and her sister was a baby. Time flies while your running around that is for sure!
It's officially summer so I'm bringing you a fun ocean card today. First I created the background with Distress Inks then added the Diving Dolphins 99134 and Sketchy Circles 99149 to create their splashes. The Dolphin is water color paper colored with Distress Ink and shimmered. The Breezy Waves 99164 finish off the scene along with some strategic Stickles and sequin usage. The gingham patterned paper is Memory Box as well. I've added a little twine at the top of the card to add a bit more nautical.
Hope everyone is having an Amazing Summer! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back daily for tons more amazing inspiration.

Have you joined our Butterfly Challenge? View the details - and post your project soon - the deadline is 11:59 PM EST on June 28th. Jean Okimoto here - let's combine our popular Reverse Butterfly Collage with a quick, spritzy, inky technique.
Watercolored backgrounds are quick and easy. To "D" or not to "D" - ??? - distress inks work for this technique, but so do the beautiful colors of Memento DewDrops. Just splotch the DewDrops onto the Craft Mat from Imagine Crafts and spritz it with water. Let the colors blend for several seconds - then pick them up with watercolor paper. Pretty cool, always unique and perfectly random for butterflies!
