Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Snowflake Window Stencil Card…

NEW Release from Simon Says Stamp! I received the NEW Snowflake Stencil and made a clean and simple mini slimline card. This one turned out to be 3 ¼ in x 6 ⅜ in. 

I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray glue, adhered it to Canson Smooth Bristol cardstock and inked with Distress Oxide stamp pads and blending brushes. Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid lagoon.

Let it Snow is a newer die from Memory Box, Let it Snow Posh Script, both layers cut from heavy white cardstock. I mounted it to the panel with pieces of mounting tape.

I embellished the snowflakes with Memory Box Clear, self adhesive Fairy Drops.

I love these pretty, sparkly, Winter colors!

I stamped the inside with a newer sentiment clear stamp set from poppystamps, Wintertime Sentiments with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. Some really fun sentiments in this set. “Thanks for Snow much fun”,  “Happy Winter Wishes to you”, Warm and cozy Winter greetings”, “You are One of a kind”, “Tis the Season to be freezin'”, “The world changes when it Snows”, and more!  

I’ll leave you with one more sentiment from this wonderful stamp set… “Friends warm even the coldest of days”.  I agree!  Thank you for stopping by!

Doodlebug Winter Wonderland Snowglobe Mini Shape Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  A little more snow here today so a good day to post a cute little snowglobe card I made for one of our grands birthday.

These super cute images are from the Doodlebug Winter Wonderland stamp set and coordinating die set.

The card looks big in my photos but it’s really only 3 x 3 inches!  ❤  The images are small but so cute and easy to color.  I used Copic sketch markers. The largest snowman is 1 ½ inches tall.

I stamped the snowglobe, colored the base, then die cut another snowglobe for the card back.  Scored the back at the top so it would open…glued it above the score line to the card front.

I love how it turned out… charming! It would be a cute tag too.

Hope it made you smile!  I’m going to link it to the #SnowmenOfJanuary event on social media right now.

Thank you for stopping by!

poppystamps NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn (horse today) Barn Easel Card…

Hi everyone! It’s freezin season but the sun is shining and it’s warm enough for me in the house! haha

poppystamps came out with this NEW Whittle Happy Unicorn die and I wasn’t in a unicorn mood after I die cut in white I guess. I decided to try an inked Distress Ink unicorn that ended up a horse! lol

Then I remembered the poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel die set and I was off after two other starts!

I had some fun with the Memory Box Heart Streamer Globe die.  It was one of my starts but I decided not to use it this time but then I decided to cut the streamers off and use them on the barn!  Barns always need embellished, right?!

I’m pretty tickled with how it turned out.  I took a bunch of pictures hoping they show what I did.

I made a little stand for the tufts of grass die cuts cut in TE Peapod cardstock and that whole piece with the horse lays down on the inside when you fold it up.

The horse is kinda like a second easel…

A strip of cardstock that I scored at ¼ in, glued the grass and then the horse to the ¼ inch part.

The sentiment, from the poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments clear stamp set, is heat embossed on Taylored Expressions Cherry Pop cardstock with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I put the easel together just like it shows on the back of the package.  I have to look every time! lol

It folds flat to fit in the envelope…

I’m not sure who I’ll send this too but hopefully someone that loves horses!

Holler if you have any questions!

Now back to the other two starts and see if they go anywhere!  There’s another new unicorn set with smaller unicorns and rainbows.  Cute!

Thank you for stopping by today! We’re headed toward Valentines Day at a gallop! haha

NEW Memory Box Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral Card…

Hello Friend! How is your January going?  I woke up to HUGE snowflakes coming down…living in a snowglobe for a few hours!

I don’t have a snow card ready to post though! lol

This flower is a NEW die from Memory Box…isn’t it pretty?  I added three die cuts of the MB Gentle Pine Needle Sprig behind it.

I used MB 6×6 cardstock pads and the gingham is from the MB Christmas Plaid 6×6 pad. Links below. (I don’t see the pattern paper anymore so I linked to a poppystamps stamp that makes a similar pattern)

This card ended up 5 ½ inches square. 

The sentiment is the NEW Memory Box Hello Friend Posh Script die.  I love it!  Love how it cuts out the inner pieces and looks so nice!

It feels like a little bit of Christmas coming into the new year here but I’m sure it could be a beautiful Spring floral card too, for any occasion!

I didn’t use a lot of foam mounting tape.  I glued the pine directly to the card panel, the floral has thin foam mounting tape under the center and the word die is on foam mounting tape. 

Very easy dies to work with!  Could be quick and easy!  I had to walk away for a bit to decide how to bring in the pattern paper and then it hit me to add the pine! It just needed something…I’m thinking there are other dies in the MB collection that would be excellent additions to this flower.

That’s it for now.  I have to get in the groove.  A bunch of birthday cards need to be made before I’m late for all of them instead of just two! ha

Have a great weekend…it looks like someone here will be blowing and plowing and it’s not me! ha

Memory Box House Frame Background LOVE Birdhouse…

Hi everyone! I pulled out a bunch of dies and designed a Wood Grain LOVE birdhouse.  Valentines Day is coming…it’s hard to believe we’re already into the second week of 2022!

I started by die cutting the MB House Frame Background and the heart opening that comes in this die set.

Then I die cut the window and snow/frosting from the MB Gingerbread House Frame Die set.

I cut the MB Wood Grain Planks one time and used them to put siding on the house frame background. Then I ink blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress ink with the mini blending tool.

Then I glued everything together and wanted a sentiment and a branch!

I cut the branch from the MB Serene Bird and Branch die set and glued it flat to the background panel.

I used the MB Pinpoint Leaf Plate for the background panel.  This panel is larger than an A2 size which I really like!  It’s 4 ½ in. x 5 ¾ in. It will fit in an A6 or A7 envelope and still mail for one postage stamp. I inked the edges of the panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini blending tool also. I really like this die!

I added some natural narrow jute before I glued the house down.

I decided the heart opening could be the ‘O’ for the word LOVE.  I decided to use the new poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet Outline and Background stamp set and the coordinating dies.  Super fun alphabet set! ❤

I die cut in white cardsock and stamped the outline in Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.  I just used an acrylic block to stamp… I only had to stamp the L twice. lol 

I like it! YAY! lol  My favorite colors…or I should say my go to colors! haha

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy cardmaking New Year to you!

Sweet Little Stockings Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have another Christmas card post to share before I move on!  I spent some of my spare time the last couple months making 18 of these cards for grandkids! They’re all cat and dog loving kids!

I got the fronts put together and adhered to the cardbases and it was what will I put inside to go with the greeting on the front?!

Very Merry Christmas Greetings… and a meowy New Year!  hehe  Thanks to Lawn Fawn for that part and the Peace, Love and Paws is from My Favorite Things. Very happy with how they turned out!

Then there’s the dog one…I had to color a variety of colored dogs to fit the ones in the families!  I didn’t try with the cats…they’re all outdoor cats.

So fun… I varied the stockings a little bit too.

I wanted to be clever with the saying inside the dog cards too… came up with this…

Very Merry Christmas Greetings…and a Yappy New Year!

So cute…they make me smile!  Love and good cheer to you all!  Thank you so much for supporting me and my cardmaking!  I appreciate it!

Stamped in the Misti, die cut in a Big Shot and Colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Have a meowy and yappy New Year if you have critters!  I have to settle for a Happy New Year! lol

ttul,

 

 

 

p.s. I wanted to let you know about this great SALE at Simon Says Stamp! ❤

Alexandra Renke Holly Branch Die CAS card…

Hi everyone! Glad tidings to you and your kin!  A clean and simple card to share with you today.  I saw a wreath card on Instagram made up like this so I had to try it!

I used the beautiful, elegant Alexandra Renke Holly Branch die and beautiful Memory Box stamps for the sentiments inside and out.

I die cut the holly branch three times, glued them together.  I think I colored the top one before I glued together.  I don’t know that it’d matter.

My pictures aren’t the greatest, I didn’t have time to set up like normal but I wanted to share anyway.

I colored the berries with Copic Sketch Markers R24, 29 and 89.  The little dot is in the die and I just put a dot of white gel pen on it.

I heat embossed the sentiment in Ranger Detail Gold Embossing powder on a strip of red cardstock and die cut it with the long narrow die from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas set.

An A2 size card…

Thank you for stopping by today!  I always appreciate your visits and I want to wish you a blessed Christmas. So much to be thankful for.

I just remembered I might be back with the cards I made for the grandkids!  We’ll see how pictures go!  Down to the wire and I haven’t started wrapping yet!  eep!

Memory Box Twiggy Alphabet Tags…

Good morning!  The weather outside was frightful yesterday! lol  I didn’t blow away so I’ve got some tags to share!

I LOVE this new alphabet die set from Memory Box…here I used the main letters, die cut in the tag and inlaid the white die letters in the tag then.  I used scor-tape on the back of the tag to hold them in and another tag so the back looks nice.

I used Sizzix Sticky Sheet Grid to line up the dies for die cutting.

Here’s what they look like if you use both the main letter and the backer piece.

I had fun!  I wanted to make the light bulbs more colorful but I made them to match the wrapping paper I have.

I had to paint the beads but it wasn’t a big deal… I used skewers and toothpicks! Acrylic paint dries fast.

Lawn Fawn’s light bulb die set worked perfect for me.

So fun!  I love doing stuff like this!

I used Taylored Expressions cardstocks…

Hemp twine to tie on the beads… black eyelets in the holes.

I glued the electrical wire on and used mounting tape to mount the bulbs.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you’re having fun making too… it’s down to the wire!  Tomorrow is the homeschool Christmas party my granddaughters and I are doing tag make and takes for.  We have six different tags ready…25 of each.  Probably too many. lol  Fun! Fun!

Memory Box Layered Poinsettia and Pinpoint Daisy Background Card…

Hi everyone!  I’ve been a little MIA but rest assured I’ve been ‘elfing’! hohoho!  The granddaughters and I are doing make n takes for the home education group Christmas party here next Friday.  Of course we couldn’t just do one thing! ha!  Good for grandma’s heart to spend time with the grands!  Sometimes you need a good excuse! lol 

So this morning I made a card!  Checking to see if I still remembered how! 

I hadn’t used this Pinpoint Daisy Background yet so I had to play with it a minute.  First thing I did was run it through the machine with a piece of red foil to see if it would transfer!  It did!  I didn’t use it though because I didn’t use a full sheet of red foil. lol  Then I couldn’t decide if it would work with this card so I went with white. 

I love this new Layered Poinsettia die so I used it again. 

This card went together pretty quick compared to some I make.

Taylored Expressions cardstock in Cherry Pop, Cilantro and Poblano Pepper.  Metallic gold for the sentiment.

The gold pearls are from Starlitstudio… love these pearls!  So easy to apply with the mini Nuvo Embellishment tool!

This ended up a little larger than an A2 size because I didn’t cut down the Pinpoint background cut.  It will fit easy in an A7 envelope and travel on one postage stamp. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Season’s Greetings to you and happy last minute cardmaking!  eek!  ❤

It’s That Time of Year… Diecember at Simon Says Stamp!

I have a card to share with the die Simon Says Stamp sent to me to make with.  Fine Textured Leaf die, designed by Memory Box. 

You can see the two dies that come in the set off to the sides in the pictures.  I used the smaller one to make the wreath on my card.

I die cut it 11 times in watercolor paper and then painted it with Distress Ink Reinkers.  They look really dark in the pictures, not sure why, but they aren’t this dark IRL. 

I used one of the plaids from Memory Box new 6×6 paper pad called Woodsy Plaids.  

I die cut the Memory Box new Merry Christmas Posh Script in white and colored them with the E 80’s copics.

I die cut the bow with a die from the Sizzix Festive Greens set #662425, a Tim Holtz set. I used watercolor paper again and colored it with a copic B93.

Very non traditional colors… I attempted to add some red.  Couldn’t do it. lol

This wreath would’ve been striking on white if I’d realized how it was going to photograph! and red!

Lots of potential for a million cards with this die set!  Very fun making wreaths! and that big leafy die! 

This card ended up 5 ½ x 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today! I’ll get back to my house… I’ve made a mess getting all the decorations out.  This nine foot tree takes  a lot of stuff! haha

Enjoy this new release!  Lots of beautiful dies!  Here’s to shopping!  Links below.

Memory Box Oval Snowman Collage Tunnel Card…

Hi everyone! I’m sure you’re all having a marvelous time of thanksgiving, shopping and decorating for the season these days!  I started shopping…a way to go for sure! hohoho

I wanted to share this card I’ve had done for a few days before I get back to shopping.

I used this new Memory Box Oval Snowman Collage die.  When I saw it, I knew it would work with some of last years dies!  So I started die cutting.


I will link all the dies I used below.

Then I realized the Memory Box Snowy Forest 3D Embossing Folder would be perfect in the background!

So I inked up the folder with ink and ran it through the Big Shot.

There’s my night sky!  I love it!

I used Mirror cardstocks in gold and silver and glossy black for his hat!

I used Memory Box Fairy Drops for snow on the tree branches but it’s hard to capture.

 

The next three pictures I added the new Memory Box Let it Snow Posh Script die to the mix… which do you like better?  With the words or without?!

I love the words!  oh, here I go again with the I wish I would haves. lol  But maybe the top let it snow needed die cut in white glitter cardstock?!

I like that it’s not taking the center stage though…

decisions, decisions! Who knew being a cardmaker would be so many decisions! lol

The sun is shining beautifully this afternoon… I’ll finish this up and talk to you all next week!

poppystamps Whittle Friendly Snowman and Double Joy Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy with this card!  I probably could’ve added more and tried to bling it up but this time I just left him to say JOY to the world! ❤

This is a new poppystamps snowman die… so whimsical and fun!  Oh you know a little holly might’ve been nice… I always think of things after! lol

I put him on a bed of snow from the new poppystamps Layered House Globe die set.

He just melts your heart, doesn’t he?! ❤  Oh…a heart on his belly to represent the O for joy would’ve been super fun too!

I used a plaid paper from last Winter’s 6×6 plaid paper pad called Christmas Plaid!  I’m not finding it to link to anymore but I’ll link to this year’s pad that would work too! ugh.  Sorry about that.  I don’t know why I grabbed this one instead of the new one.

I die cut him from heavy white cardstock and colored his parts with Copic Sketch Markers.  I backed the circles with a smaller punch circle so I would have something to glue his eyes and carrot too.  Then I used mounting tape behind his top part, mounting tape behind the snow hill and mounting tape behind the top parts of the letters J and Y.

I die cut the plaid with the largest Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die. Then I matted it with black cardstock and adhered them to a 5 ½ x 5 ½ piece of green from the Memory Box 6×6  Lush Green cardstock pad. It matches perfectly with this plaid! yay!

‘To The World’ sentiment is from the new Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings again… this is such a good set!

I love this new poppystamps Double Joy die too… you get so many options with the two dies included in the set!

Mr. Frosty is 5 ½ in. x 5 ½ in. square. So cute!  I need to make some more of these and vary them a little as I go! hehe

poppystamps Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m so in love with this set!  I copied and made it like the photo on the package! lol  I was making it for card kits so I just copied to skip the design process… Thank you Dave/poppystamps for designing and inspiring our cardmaking! ❤

So much potential though, for beautiful Winter cards!  I know I”ll have to make it again and again with other dies too!  I can see a snowman in the picture, can’t you? a sleigh? laughing all the way… brrrr lol

I have a lot of pictures because my camera does better on an overcast day…or maybe it’s me that does better on an overcast day! haha

On the back of the packaging are pictures of how it goes together.  I’ve made a lot of easel cards but I still have to look to remember how these go together.  Very easy.

I love being able to display cards.  I use mine for decorating the mantel until I have to mail them!

The Warmest Wishes sentiment is from Memory Box Festive Christmas Greetings clear stamp set.  So many good sentiment sets anymore from Memory Box and poppystamps…I love it when I can match the front with the inside!

The easel will lay down flat and then into an A2 envelope!  So nice!  I’m sitting here looking at it wishing I could show you IRL! lol

So festive and beautiful!  I love making for Christmas! I hope you’re inspired!  Have a good week and I’ll talk to you later!

Simon Says Stamp Handmade Holiday Release…

A snowy hello to you today!  Simon Says Stamp sent me one of their new embossing folders, Snowy Path, to play with for this release.

I hadn’t use the new poppystamps Snowman and Trees die set yet so I thought it would be perfect in this shimmery snowy scene.

oh dear… it just dawned on me that I colored the path as if it was ice! lol  Oh well, you can see it can be a path or a stream!  A Winter Wonderland!

I inked everything with Blender Brushes and Distress Oxide Inks. The carrot nose is a Copic Sketch Orange Marker.

I spritzed with some Frost and Sparkle sprays and Winter Blizzard glitter glue.

A sweet, super shimmery, Winter scene A2 size card.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Inside Christmas Greetings clear set and stamped in Ranger black archival ink.

There are several new embossing folders in this release and stencils and stamps and dies… festive and beautiful!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’m working on some other cards and hope to show another one on Saturday!   See you again soon!

Memory Box Bennet Alphabet Merry Christmas Card…


Hi everyone! I challenged myself to use the new Memory Box Bennet Alphabet for a Christmas card this week…then I thought, I’m going to use unusual colors!  I always say I’m not a ‘pink’ person but we had three daughters and I dressed them in pink frequently! So…here’s some pink for you!

A Slimline card I wish I could show you in real life!  It’s a softer pink, I used Taylored Expressions Pink Champagne cardstock for the pinks and Mint Julep!  There are Copic markers to match these cardstocks also.  I colored the alphabet layer, die cut from Pink Champagne, with RV32.  


I used the Pine Needle Trio dies again.  They seem to be making an appearance on my cards a lot these days! lol  I die cut them in Mint Julep cardstock then colored them with a Copic G21 to match.  The Holly Bundle dies were cut from Mint Julep also, I ran around the outside edge of each holly leaf with the same marker. I die cut the berries from Pink Champagne and colored them with the RV32 and a little dot with a white gel pen.

I die cut a panel from Pink Champagne with one of the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim die set.  Then I die cut a panel from Mint Julep with one of the Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set. I went around the edge of this panel with the chisel tip of the G21 marker to make the panel show up a little more. 

I layered the panels on a white slimline size cardbase.  Several Memory Box Fairy Drop clear domes and it was done. 

Have you tried the Slimline and Mini Slimline card sizes yet?  It’s fun!  Now to make something with kraft, turquoise and red! lol

Have a beautiful weekend! I need to get some shopping done!  

Thank you for stopping by!
