Old Glory Cards

I hope you like the cards as much as I did! I loved her use of the Postage Assemblage dies as stripes on the flag...very creative don't you think?! Then the use of the Starry Night Background die as an element on one card and using the stars for the other card....versatility and no waste! I never would have thought of using the Ferrand Heart die in a patriotic card but I love the simplicity of layering the white on the red and blue background....just beautiful! I hope to see you in class!

You Make Me Smile!

Meet Patient Benjamin Fox...looking at him just makes me smile.  Benjamin is one of the newest stamp designs from Memory Box's Spring Collection and one I will keep close at hand. I can create friendship, get well, congratulations or birthday cards---really any occasion with him!

Smiling Fox

 A  few of the Open Studio dies came into play with this card...that big, happy word "Smile" from the A Lovely Smile set, the awesome triangle border from the Geo Fragments set and the cute zig-zag border from the Stitched Country Borders.  The great thing about the Open Studio dies is that they are die SETS.  You get a set of dies that coordinate with one another.  Click on any of the links I just highlighted to see these wonderful die sets.  

By the way, after I die cut the blue note card with the triangle Geo Fragments die, I layered a white card stock panel behind it---one that I colored with lavender, green, pink and yellow Copic markers---just thin stripes of color horizontally across the paper so when adhered to the note card, the colors show through the tiny triangles.  

Don't you love the stamped sentiment?---Memory Box cleverly designed clear sentiment stamp sets to coordinate with several Open Studio die sets---the one I used pertains to SMILES--genius!  Click on this link to see the Smile stamp set I used. 

Speaking of smiles....here are some wonderful ladies I met at Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs, Co when teaching Memory Box classes there a few weeks ago.  Everyone was so welcoming and fun!

We created several cards with the latest and greatest Memory Box stamps, dies, papers and stencils---and watercolors!  Many thanks to Cathy, owner of Simple Pleasures, and to Angie and Beckie (next time let's wear our Prom dresses to dinner too!).  Hee Hee, right after I left a snow storm moved it---missed it by that much!

Thanks for stopping by today...Happy Friday!

Scraped Paint Poppies

Good Morning,  Marnie here today!  Spring is here and with all of the rain comes the lush green of everything bursting into bloom.  Today I have recreated that in a card.  The Row of Poppies 99137 was cut from white cardstock and colored with Distress Inks.  I then used the negative of the Poppies to stencil a shadow and added some texture with the Scraped Paint Stencil 88584 and some random inking.  Once everything was complete and the Poppies were added to the mat on the card I used some Viva Decor Gel to create the dots or stamen. 

 

This has turned out to be one of my favorites as of late.  I will be teaching this technique and 3 others in my Die Cut Discovery Class at CraftFancy on May 21st.     

 

Hope your having a Wonderful Day and staying dry.
