Cuppa Blooms and Bird Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_6171

Hello everyone.  I have another simple birthday card to share today using previously released products.

The bird, stretched from a hummingbird by cutting down its beak with scissors, was in my stash.  It had been die cut from white cardstock and ink blended with two blue and a dark grey dye inks.  The cup, flowers and foliage were also die cut from white cardstock and ink blended with pink, yellow, green or dark grey dye inks.  

IMG_6172

Arranged and adhered the inked die cut pieces onto a white woodgrain panel then mount it onto the plaid pattern paper.  Picked this bright yellow design with gold foil lines to tie it in with the gold foil greetings tab.  Added clear shimmer to the flowers for some sparkle to finish

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today   Have a wonderful weekend.

Just a Note
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8479

Hello everyone!  I have a fun Spring themed card for you today featuring dies from the 2024 Gladiola release.

I began by die cutting the background panel, flowers and leaves from white cardstock.  

Next, I used a blending brush to apply blue ink to the background panel, and yellow and green inks to the flowers and leaves.

I spattered the background panel with plain water and heat dried the paper.  Next I spattered the background with white ink, dried it, and then adhered it to a white card base.

The flower petals were glued together to form the Gladiola.  I glued the leaves in place on the card front and then used foam adhesive to glue the flowers in place.

The sentiment was die cut from black cardstock and glued to the white cardstock shadow die cut using foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I added some clear Fairy Crystals to finish the card.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Exquisite Fanciful Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_6049

Hello everyone.  I have a super simple birthday card to share today to round out the last two remaining dies from the 2024 Gladiola collection that I have not used yet.

The Fanciful Gladiola and Exquisite Butterflies were die cut from white cardstock and ink blended with dye inks; turquoise for the flowers, green for the foliage and Wilted Violet/Blueprint Sketch distress inks for the butterflies.

IMG_6050

The sentiment was hot foiled with white foil on black cardstock then die cut out using the Modest Greetings 1 hot foil and die set from Poppy Stamps.  Arranged and assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

Easy-peasy… and that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Kindness Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8430

Hello everyone!  Today's card features stamps and stencils from the Spring Cheer release.

I started by die cutting the Vintage Tray Die from Gina K Designs masking magic paper.  I placed the mask on a white cardstock panel, and used a blending brush to apply light blue ink around the edges of the blocks.  This creates a nice shadow around the blocks.

IMG_8428

I left the mask in place and stamped the Cheerful Flower with black ink.  I used a heat tool to dry the image before using the coordinating layering stencils to add color to the stamped image. I used dye inks and blending brushes for the coloring.  I followed the steps on the stencil guide to add color to the stamped image.

To add some texture to the panel, I inked the back side of the Altenew Grip Mat with white ink and stamped it across my panel.  

Next, I spattered the background with white and gold inks.  Once the inks were dry, I removed the mask from the paper. I trimmed it and glued it to a thin black cardstock mat.  This was glued to a pink cardstock mat and then adhered to a white card base.

I stamped and die cut the word kindness from white cardstock and glued it to the card.  Underneath the word I stamped the words "changes everything".

IMG_8429

To finish the card I added some Fairy Drops for more texture, and that's it!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Just a Note with Exquisite Butterflies
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello there, it's Angie here today with a mini slimline card featuring the new Exquisite Butterflies die 94771, just released this month.  I also used some patterned paper from the new release called Glimmering Gladiola Paper Pad PP1028.  The sentiment was released last month and it's called Just a Note Daily Script die set 94663.  It's a really nice sentiment that has 3 parts that are cut with 2 dies.  A background die plus a 2nd die that cuts the outline of the words and also individual letters inside the outline, so there are many ways to use this sentiment die.  Here's a close up of my card:

Another really cool feature about the butterfly die is that it is just one die but it cuts all the parts for all five butterflies.  It's great because you don't have to try to keep up with tiny metal dies or lose them while your are doing your die cutting.   As you can see below, some of the butterflies have center bug parts and the smaller ones don't, so I added a jewel to those centers for some shine!  

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you have had a chance to check out all the lovely gladiola dies and papers that were released by Memory Box this month.  They are truly gorgeous and go well with these butterflies that were also just released.  Thanks for stopping by!

Gladiola Globe Thank You
by Trina Pham

IMG_5874

Hello everyone.  I have a straight forward thank you card today featuring three of the beautiful Gladiola dies from the current 2024 Gladiola release. 

All flower and foliage pieces were die cut from white paper and the respective pieces were ink blended with gradient colors of dye inks in pinks and greens.  For some sparkle, added clear shimmer to the flowers/buds then put them together.

IMG_5875

Used the Nested Globes dies next to die cut an opening from a white woodgrain panel and a frame from Bristol paper.  To give the background through the opening dimension, the Pointy Lattice Plate from Poppy Stamps was die cut from white and adhered directly onto the white card base. Assembled the card and added the Thank You Foil Greeting white tab to finish.

That does it for my card today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8241

Hello everyone!  Once again, today's card features products from the new 2024 Gladiola Release. 

I began by die cutting the Celeste Plate from one of the foil papers from the new Glimmering Gladiola paper pads.  I glued that to a black cardstock mat, and adhered it to a white card base.

I die cut the Whimsical Gladiola from white cardstock, and used Distress Ink to add color to the die cuts. 

Flowers: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries

Leaves: Peeled Paint and Forest Moss

Once the die cuts were dry, I glued them together and used foam tape to adhere it to a white cardstock panel that I spattered with gold and black ink.  That panel was glued to a gold metallic cardstock mat and adhered to the card front.

IMG_8240

To finish the card, I adhered a Happy Birthday Circle Tab to the card, and that's it!

I hope you were inspired by today's card!  Thanks for stopping by!

by Trina Pham

IMG_5784

Hello everyone.  I am sharing another super quick CAS (clean and simple) card today, but without the drama. 😂  It features the new Budding Gladiola Stem die from the current 2024 Gladiola release.

The Budding Gladiola Stem was die cut twice from red Blush and green Greenery color papers.  Ink blended the respective pieces with Lumberjack Plaid and Rustic Wilderness distress inks for dimension.  Glued the layers together to form the flowers and foliage.

IMG_5785

The white woodgrain background panel was scored at 3/4” intervals.   Added three gold cords across the panel, then adhered the flowers and foliage.  Attached the foiled circle greeting tab on top to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Sensational Gladiola Stem Hello
by Trina Pham

IMG_5689

Hello everyone.  I am sharing a super simple yet dramatic card today.  It features the new Sensational Gladiola Stem die from the current 2024 Gladiola release.  I think that when a product is this beautiful, it doesn’t need much.  

The Gladiolas were die cut three times from light green Leafy Greenery and white Bristol papers   Green and dark gray dye inks were applied to the respective pieces with detailed blending brushes to add shading and give dimension.  

IMG_5690

Arranged and glued the flowers to an A2 size black panel then lightly splattered with diluted white gouache paint.  The Hello Daily Script sentiment was in my stash.  It had been die cut from black glossy paper and Bristol paper.  Adhered the panel to a white card base to finish.

IMG_5691

Easy-peasy and that was all for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8146 (1)

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today's card features more new products from the Spring Cheer Release.  

I began by creating a background for my card, by die cutting a circle in the middle of a piece of masking paper.  I used Gina K Designs, Masking Magic Paper and Masking Magic Strips.

I placed the die cut masking paper over a white cardstock panel and then adhered 1/8" masking strips across the circle.  I used a blending brush to apply purple inks to the circle. I started with the lightest purple on the top and ended with the darkest purple.

IMG_8143

I removed the strips of masking paper, leaving the die cut circle mask in place and lightly inked around the edge of the circle.

I removed the masking paper and glued the background panel to a gold metallic mat.  Next, I used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

I die cut the Clara Blooms from white cardstock and used a blending brush to add color to the flowers and leaves.

I arranged the flowers and leaves around the circle and glued them in place.  

IMG_8145

To finish the card, I glued a Happy Birthday Foil Strip to the canter of the circle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
