Elegant Succulent Thank You
by Michelle Bala

31

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a card I created using Elegant Succulent Stamp Set from the newest Summer Daydreams Release.  I randomly stamped the succulents onto a piece of cardstock. I used gray ink. I colored the florals with Copic Markers in shades:

Blueish Succulent- BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, BV23; Green Succulent- G20, G21, G24, G46, BV23, RV93; Green leaves- YG23, YG25, YG17, BV25; 

Blueish Leaves- BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78; Red Branch- RV69, RV99; Background- RV91 
31

Next, I used the Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out Die and die cut the colored panel. I splattered some white paint and allowed to dry. Than I chose a piece of dark gray paper from the Earth Neutral 6x6 Paper Pack. I trimmed it to fit the card base than used the same die to cut the stitched frame. 
31

For the sentiment, I die cut the Thank You Streamlined Script Die two times. I used the Holiday Glitter Pad and a piece of cardstock I colored with the BG75.  I layered the sentiment. I assembled the card than added some clear jewels.

Hope you give it  a try! Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Things with Flowering Cactus
by Angie Cimbalo

Cactus WM main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this lovely cactus stamp and die set called "Flowering Cactus" from the newest Memory Box release.  It's a pretty large image with lots of gorgeous details.

Here's a closer look at my card:

Cactus WM main

I stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white on watercolor paper. I watercolored it with Distress Inks and re-inkers. Once it dried, I added colored pencils to it for more depth.

Cactus WM main

Next I used the coordinating die and cut the watercolored image out and added it to a piece of Memory Box cream color woodgrain paper.  The woodgrain paper comes in white, cream, and kraft and has a very subtle texture that adds so much to your cards without distracting from the main focal image.  Below you can see the woodgrain pattern better:

Cactus WM main

I heat embossed the sentiment and the 2 butterflies from the set in white on black card stock.
I used a black mat cut slightly larger than my woodgrain paper and then added that to a 5" by 7" card base.
Lastly I added Pastel Fairy Jewels, also from Memory Box. Here's one last look at my card:

Cactus WM main

I had a lot of fun stamping and coloring this image and creating this card. The new release is full of amazing products, including dies, stamps, and embossing folders. I hope you will check them all out HERE!

I'll link my products below and thanks so much for stopping by!

Thinking of You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_3317

Hello everyone! Today I have a CAS card for you featuring the new Eucalyptus Collage Die.

I started by die cutting the Eucalyptus die in the center of a green cardstock panel.  I sponged Forest Moss Distress ink on the stems and lower portion of the leaves to add some depth to them.

IMG_3319

 I adhered a white piece of cardstock behind the die cut and mounted that on a lighter green cardstock mat.  Next, I used foam tape and mounted it on white and black cardstock mats.

On a strip of black cardstock, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment. Using foam tape, I glued it to the card.

IMG_3318

I adhered the card front to a white card base and used some fairy drops to finish the card.

That's it for today! I hope you have a great weekend!

Ahoy Matey
by Trina Pham

DA2DF372-769A-4030-A75D-6639F4A64877

Hello everyone.   Have you played along in this month’s Ahoy There Nautical challenge yet?   As you can see, that was the inspiration for my mini slimline card today.

CF6453A2-66EC-4D78-8692-1E6ABD0DB39E

I find mini slimline cards can range in size anywhere from 3”x6” to 3.5”x6.5”, depending on who you ask. 😂  I have mini slimline envelopes that measure 3.5”x6.5”, so to ensure my card fits, my mini slimline cards are either 3”x6” for bulky cards or 3.25”x6.25” for flat cards.  For here, I trimmed a piece of mixed media paper to 3.25”x6.25”.  Using blender brushes, ink blended Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks (DI) for the water and a gradient of brown dye inks for the sand.  Spritz with water and blot off with a paper towel to give it some texture.  For even more texture on the sand, splattered with diluted Black Soot DI.  Used a sponge dauber and dabbed white gouache paint along the shoreline where the water and sand meet.  Set aside to dry.

BDD55071-46B1-4A05-9E86-5F96A284D860

The castle from the new Majestic Achievements stamp set was then stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink onto the lightest color paper from the Earth Neutral paper pack.  Colored it with Copic markers to transform it into a sandcastle, then fussy cut it out.  Used a brown marker to color the edges to cover the white and give it a finished look.  The sailboat was die cut twice from Bristol paper and once from the Springtime Bouquet pattern paper and stacked for dimension.  Black heat embossed the sentiment from the new Deep Blue Ocean stamp set onto Bristol paper then die cut out with the new Banner Sentiment die.

BF81B83D-38A1-4755-9AAA-952DB95150D3

Trimmed off the left fishtail and drew in the “flag pole” with a black marker before assembling the card onto a white 3.25”x6.25” card base.  Added waves with a white gel pen to finish.

You have till July 30, 11:59 pm EST, to enter the challenge.  Thank you for joining me today.  Enjoy your day.

Happy Birthday
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_3285

Hello everyone!  Today's card features products from the new Memory Box Summer Daydreams Collection.  I saw a fun technique that Gina K demonstrated on her Youtube channel called Emerging Watercolor.

I taped a piece of watercolor paper to my surface and colored the background using two colors of Tombow Markers.  You can use any water based markers, watercolor or inks for this technique. 

IMG_3281

Once my background was colored, I used a paintbrush and plain water to blend the color.  I dried the background completely, then used embossing ink to stamp the fish on the background.  I used clear embossing powder to heat emboss the stamped fish.

IMG_3282

Next, I sprayed the background with water and used a dry paper towel to pick up the color. I did this several times to remove as much color as I could.  The embossing powder acts as a resist and the end result is almost a batik look to your background.

IMG_3283

Once the background was dry I used the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles to die cut my paper.  I glued two strips of orange cardstock to the background and used foam tape to adhere the die cut anchor to the card. 

I die cut the banner from white cardstock, stamped "Happy Birthday" in orange ink and used foam tape to glue it to my card.

IMG_3286

I used foam tape to adhere the card front to a white card base and glued some Fairy Drops to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Succulents
by Trina Pham

1178C18F-E270-44BB-83C7-A918E62510B9

Hello everyone.  The new Summer Daydreams collection is officially live today and it’s another fabulous release.  I used the new Elegant Succulent Sentiments stamp set to do some light watercoloring on color paper and create a simple card.

Started by trimming a piece of aqua paper from the Fresh Aqua paper pack to A2 size (4.25”x5.5”).  Stamped the succulent image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Used Zig markers to color and only a tiny bit of water with a watercolor brush to help blend the colors.  This paper may be nice and thick, but it is not watercolor paper.

699CFADE-8835-48A5-96D1-C5F3F22F1A14

Next, die cut the new Hello Streamlined Script sentiment from silver Polished Foil paper and from black cardstock to offset them for a drop shadow.  Die cut the Stylish Rectangle frame from Bristol paper, then assembled the card onto a white card base.  Clear shimmer on the image and a few clear jewels finished it off.

067C8624-B065-4224-9D0C-300A12DB7BD9

And that does it for today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful day.
