Frosted Pine trees and Maple Leaves…

A couple cards I posted on the Memory Box blog today…


No, I’m not ready for the sparkly, fluffy stuff but I sure like it on cards! lol

For the starry background, I applied Imagine Crafts Delicata Silver ink through the Stardust Stencil with Imagine Crafts large round ink Dauber onto a Memory Box A-2 Sapphire Notecard.

I die cut and embossed the Frosted Pine die five times in Memory Box Dill card-stock.  I went over the embossed snow areas with Dries White glue, shook on and tapped off the glitter and let it dry.

Merry is die cut from a Memory Box White notecard.

The word Christmas is left over from the Grand Merry Christmas Script die card I made and posted last week HERE.

I used two of the holly leaves from the HO HO Holly Leaves die and a couple red glitter domes finish it off.
Now for some Fall colors!


Very simple but maybe a nice, easy to mail, ‘flat’ card! Gotta love that once in awhile! lol

The card base is a Memory Box Lagoon A-2 Notecard with a 5 1/4 inch x 4 inch panel from a Memory Box Parchment Notecard layered on top. I used Gathered Twigs Distress ink to edge the panel and all the leaves, letters and the Woodland Branch die.

I used the new Marvelous Maple Leaves die and cut the small leaf in 3 Memory Box card-stock colors, Meadow, Sweetcorn and Jack O Lantern. The large leaf is cut once out of Jack O Lantern.

Upper and lower case Classic Alphabet dies for happy FALL.


Our daughters call their baby diaper inserts ‘flats’, so I can call my flat cards ‘flats’!  lol  Children are a blessing even when they create a lot of laundry!  I guess we big people make a lot of laundry too!  Now how did I get off on that! lol

I’ll link up to some challenges and call it a post!  ttul!  TFL!

  1. Your background is awesome with all those gorgeous trees. And, no! I’m not ready for the flaky stuff yet either. Yikes!
    I am a BIG leaf stamp and die lover and I’m drooling over all those colorful leaves. I love how you put the large leaf behind the A in Fall.
    Very nicely done on both cards!
    Thanks for the challenge links. I participate in the Paper Players and Pals Paper Arts. Splitcoasters picked my Fall Heart Pouch as a Favorite this week! YaHooooooo! Anyways, when the flaky stuff does start to fly, I may participate in more challenges so the links are appreciated!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh I’m loving both of these. I always get a super charge when I see that you’ve used something that I have in my supplies. Got some new MB dies I need to try, but I especially enjoyed that you had a beautiful card for each separate season today. TFS & Hugs

  3. Oooooh these are both beautiful!! I love the snowy trees with the Merry Christmas and the Happy Fall with the colorful leaves is so pretty! Funny on the diapers and laundry! I know all about that! haha!

  4. You did a super job on both cards. I especially love the branch and leaves. The leaves are the right size for the branch and the coloring is great. Love how you inked the support panel. Looks awesome.

  5. These are both awesome, as always! I love the way you used the leftover “Christmas” on your first card! Great idea! The fall leaves card is stunning! LOVE that large leaf behind the “A” ….another great idea!

  6. Love the fall card especially-simple and perfect. Not too hard is what I really like. I think I really need that branch too!!!!

  7. Your fall card is wonderful! Love those leaves. So simple yet so stunning! Thanks so much for joining us over at the 2 Cute Ink “Fall” challenge. Good luck and I hope you will come back and join us again!
    Hugs, Sarah T

  8. Beautiful, Pam! I love your stenciled background with Delicata! Truly perfect with the Christmas trees! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Create Your Own Background Challenge!

  9. I’m not ready for the fluffy stuff either but love it on cards too! Your card DOES make one feel the spirit though. It IS so beautiful when it falls on the pine trees. Sorry, have to admit that. I love clean and simple cards that I can do and I think I just may be able to pull the fall card off! I’m not good with cards needing perfectly straight so the falling leaves will really help me out. I like them both very much Pam. 🙂

  10. Pam these are simply amazing cards. Really like the sparkly Christmas one & how you used the leftover word to create it. LOVE the fall one with those wonderful leaves & the alphabet letters. In all my dies I have no alphabets. After seeing these beautiful cards now I just need to decide which ones to get. This alphabet looks like a good place to start.
    Hugs, Janie

  11. Hi ,Pam! I love both cards! The snow on the trees is fun! Never ready for Christmas as far as gifts go. Sure is fun making cards all year long . Your fall card is also beautiful!

  12. Oh my gosh!! I just love your Fall card. Fantastic sponging of the edges with the feel of the falling leaves, and adding the bigger leaf under the word “fall”. Just love everything about this card. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
