More Exquisite Butterflies Gladiola Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_6210

Hello everyone.  I had some die cuts left over from my cards featuring the 2024 Gladiola collection, so I put them to use onto a card. 

The completed pink Whimsical Gladiola was from this post (you can see it lying beside the card in the photo).  The untouched butterfly pieces from this post was ink blended with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Black Soot distress inks (DI).  

IMG_6211
 
An oval mask was then die cut from acetate using the Oval Basics die from Poppy Stamps.  Masked the center of an A2 size Bristol panel and ink blended Spun Sugar DI starting in the middle and fading outwards.  The Lattice Plate, also from Poppy Stamps, was die cut from Bristol.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then added the gold foil greeting tab and clear shimmer to the flowers and butterfly for some sparkle to finish.  The butterfly was popped up on foam tape for even more dimension. .

My second card has the same design, but reversed.   An untouched Sensational Gladiola from this post was ink blended with Wilted Violet DI.  

IMG_6213
 

Rather than masking the center with the positive die cut oval mask, the negative oval acetate piece was used as a stencil.  The Lattice Plate was die cut from acetate to use as a stencil, too.  Placed it over the oval opening then ink blended Shaded Lilac DI.

The butterfly here was a newly die cut from yellow Sunrise paper and ink blended with Mustard Seed and Black Soot DI.

Stamped the sentiments from Bold Cheerful Floral in black then assembled the card onto a white card base.  Repeated the clear shimmer application as above for some sparkle to finish.

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

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.

Blooming Anemone Slimline by Jean Okimoto

P1033504

Combine the Blooming Anemone with a Poppystamps frame background on a floral thank you card.  Hi, Jean here with a slimline  for any occasion.  A basic design and just a few colors make it easy to re-create and personalize this for anyone who deserves a special thank you.

P1033520

Cut Blooming Anemone from a bright red 6x6 in the Blush Collection.  Color the stem and sepal with a black marker.  Cut the largest petal again.  Cut an extra set of petals from Black Glossy Paper (cardstock) to create leaves.  Cut the pointy stamens twice from Black Glossy Paper.

Cut about 1-½" of the Poppystamps Circling Frame from the bright red 6x6.  Cut black cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut Kraft Woodgrain Paper with the 1-¼" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Cut a pearlescent moon from the white Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 with the 1-¼" Circle Basics die.

P1033530

Attach the diecuts to a woodgrain kraft slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the tips of petals which are now leaves.

Add a simple thank you from the Thank You Foil Greetings Tabs.  

Cut a piece of the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6 with a portion of the Circling Frame to create shiny gold accent confetti.   Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing. 

Thanks for visiting our blog...Happy Mother's Day to everyone celebrating on Sunday!

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.

Spring Bloomers and a Bunny by Jean Okimoto

Stenciled blossoms and a popular new bunny from Poppystamps are great for all-occasion cards.  The bold flowers and sweet poufy bunny are more than ready for spring...are you?  

Hi, Jean here finally after many hours of home security, modem and electrical issues.  Imagine loud warning chirps at exactly 25 minutes past the hour, every hour, 24/7!

Stenciling is quick, precise and forgiving when necessary.  Stenciling on the reverse side of a stamped image is even better.  Here's another design featuring Spring 2024's Cheerful Floral Clear Stamps and Cheerful Floral 6x6 Art Stencils.

Prep white vellum with the embossing powder tool to eliminate stray flecks of powder.  Stamp the floral image with VersaMark.  Heat-emboss it with detail white powder.  Flip both the stencils and the stamped, cooled image over to the backside and stencil the reverse side with Brilliance Inks - Pearlescent Lime, Lavender, Purple and Sunflower Yellow.  The stencils are numbered for sequential coloring and can create the look of layered colors. Cut it with the die included in the stamp set.

Reverse-stenciling keeps the white embossing clean + white and eliminates scratched, scraped embossing. 

Cut two pieces of white cardstock with the second-largest Nested Globes die.  Layer them for dimension, then attach the floral diecut with narrow strips of doublestick tape - it won't be visible under the opaque inks.

Sweet, poufy Poppystamps Cuddle Bunny will make you smile!   Cut him from the horizontal textured side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  The light horizontal lines add more character to this already-sweet bunny.  Color the ears and the nose area of the solid head piece with pink ink - Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid was used here. Color the eye areas with a black marker.  Attach it behind the other head diecut.  Assemble the bunny.

Attach a 1-½" x 4-½" piece of ScorTape to white cardstock. Cut it with the Thank You Daily Script background die.  Cut the detailed top layer of the greeting from a pale blue/lavender Ocean Blue Collection 6x6.  Before removing the diecut - carefully remove and save the  teardrop shapes for the "a" and "y" and the open oval for the "o."  Attach the top layer - and the tiny saved pieces.  Use the tape liner like a presscloth to press all of the pieces firmly onto the adhesive-covered background.  Cover the exposed adhesive with Imagine's Iridescent Embossing Powder, tap the excess off and heat-emboss.  Attach it inside the card.

Thanks for visiting our blog...Happy Easter to everyone celebrating on Sunday.  See you in April!

Anemone Bird House
by Trina Pham

IMG_4946

Hello everyone.  It may be Valentine’s Day, but my card is not. 😂   I have a simple card with all the spring feels to share today using  Anemone Blooms and Elegant Anemone dies from the Anemone collection with the Woodgrain Bird House and Leaf Bunches  dies from the 2023 Christmas collection.  

All pieces were die cut from white cardstock paper and ink blended with dye inks using blending brushes.  Wilted Violet and Stormy Sky distress inks (DI) were used for the anemone flowers, Black Soot DI was used for shading on the bird house and two gradient green color dye inks from Altenew were used for the leaf bunches. 

IMG_4958

Trimmed a 3/8” strip from white woodgrain paper for the bird house post and added shading to it as well using Black Soot DI.  Lightly ink blended Milled Lavender DI to the bottom of an A2 size Bristol panel before assembling the card onto a white card base.  I was going to leave the card blank, but went digging in my bits bag and found this Poppy Stamp gold foil Modest Greetings 1 sentiment that works nicely for many occasions.  

IMG_4959

Well, that does it for my card.  Get ready for a brand new release tomorrow.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Snow Fairies…Inspired by a TV Show by Jean Okimoto

International TV shows don't often inspire card designs - but the Snow Fairies documentary on Japan's NHK TV inspired today's card.  They're adorably fluffy, rare long-tailed birds  - and the Poppystamps new Nordic Bird Bunch set has the perfect die for this little bird (they just needed longer tails).  Hi, Jean here with a  ScandinAsian Valentine idea.

Cut Birch Tree Trunks from Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  The diecut is very detailed, but it's easy to remove.  Start at the bottom of the trunks and wiggle the offcuts away instead of trying to pull the trunks out. 

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to wool-blend white felt and red felt.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and prevents adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the second-largest heart of the Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out set.

Cut the Nordic Bird bases from white felt.  Cut the 2 larger wing pieces from Open Studio Watercolor Paper (instead of felt) to highlight the Nordic details. Cut the combined beak/eye sections and the left bird's wings from black cardstock. Some Snow Fairies are all-white, some have darker sections - we'll have one of each type.

They have very long tails. We're using 2 branches from the tree trunk (shown on the left side of the packaging) to create special felt tails for them.  Trim the original tails, then attach the tree branch sections.  Cover the area with a wing!

Glue 2 pieces of gray cardstock together for dimension and diecut the new Hugs Debut Script background. Cut the detailed top layer from red cardstock.  Cut the background from red cardstock too, for more dimension.

Assemble the birds and greeting.  Attach everything to a gray A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Add bronze Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Looking for more ideas?  Search Snow Fairies NHK TV - the show is available on demand until March 31st.  Not sponsored or anything like that...I just think you'll enjoy it too!

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!

Sending Blooming Anemone Hugs
by Trina Pham

IMG_4635

Hello everyone.  I have a QACAS (quick and clean and simple) card to share today featuring the Blooming Anemone and Hugs Debut Script dies from the current Anemone release.

The anemone was die cut from white cardstock and its pieces were ink blended with Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Shabby Shutters and Black Soot distress inks (DI).

IMG_4636

The Poppy Stamps stitched envelope was then die cut from white cardstock, followed by the “hugs” sentiment, which was die cut three times also from white, to stack for dimension.  Ink blended the top layer with Seedless Preserves DI, then adhered the stacked sentiment onto a pale plum cardstock piece that was trimmed down to fit the envelope.  Assembled the card onto a black A2 size panel, then added clear shimmer to the flower for some sparkle to finish.

IMG_4638


Not gonna lie, this ended being more dramatic than intended. 🤷🏻‍♀️   And that does it  for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Holiday wishes of peace, love and joy from Memory Box to everyone celebrating today!  Hi, Jean here with a mix-and-match holiday greeting.  The ornament trio combines classic favorites, Christmas '23, and some extras from Poppystamps and Birch Press Design. 

The sweet Layered Hummingbird - with a few alterations and minimal layering - becomes a peace dove here.  He's perched on a Birch Press Design diecut that (I hope!) resembles a young olive branch.

Cut the Frilling Snowflake Ornament background from three shades of green cardstock.  Punch holes at the top and attach gold cord.  Curl the cord with the side of the flower burnishing tool or a bonefolder - follow the curve of the cord for best results.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to white wool-blend felt and cut the main section of Layered Hummingbird.  Cut the top of the head/beak section from orange cardstock.  Color the eye area with a black marker.  Attach it behind the felt diecut, then trim the long hummingbird's beak to resemble a dove's beak.  Cut two of the big wings from a white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.  Trim the little point from one wing. Attach the wings.

Cut the branch - from the Birch Press Design Jovial Blooms and Leaves Contour Layers set - from darker green cardstock.

Cut the Poppystamps Heart Jumble hearts from the red Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.

Cut the largest Alpine Snowflake from the white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.

Glue two pieces of white cardstock together and diecut them with the 2" x 7" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

P1029102 2

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝"  8-½") - use foam tape for the bird.  Stamp the greeting - from the Shining Star Clear Stamp Set - on lime green cardstock with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it with one end of the 1.1" x 6.1" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die, then trim the excess with an edge of a larger die.

Attach the greeting with foam tape.  Add red Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog - see you again tomorrow!
