Memory Box and poppystamps class cards…

Pam Sparks Triptych Fence

Hi everyone!  Finally getting these posted!  You can tell it’s Spring when you start working on ‘things’ around the house!  Even if it is just putting your Copic refills in alphabetical order! lol

I used the poppystamps Triptych die and Memory Box Fence die and sentiment on this one.  The little flowers are from the Playful Petal Bundle.  The Triptych die cuts the three squares in the card base and cuts the 3 tree parts squares too.  I just cut the die once in the white card base and then once in kraft because I wanted the tree squares to be brown.  I used a Tombow brush marker to edge the squares to make them darker brown.  I stamped with a woodgrain stamp over the top of all three squares before I pieced them into the card base.  I stamped the fence with the woodgrain stamp too.


Pam Sparks Kaysen Oval Frame Scene

In these two cards you have the poppystamps Boddington Cottage in the background die cut in a rectangle piece of card-stock, then cut that with one of the new Memory Box Oval Layering dies. Die cut a larger oval in light green to mat the scene and a smaller oval to stamp the sentiment on. The poppystamps Kaysen Oval is cut in darker green and lightly glued to the Boddington Cottage Oval.  The flower is from the Memory Box Seraphine Laurel die set.

This card wasn’t part of the class but I thought I’d go ahead and show you what it looked like with a different card base color.

Here I die cut one of the dies from the Geo Fragments die set in green.  Love that set!  I used the curve die that comes with the Memory Box Pasture Grass die set, to cut the front panel.  The sprigs from the Memory Box Seraphine Laurel die fit the curve perfectly!  Sentiment is from Memory Box and the butterfly is Memory Box Pippi and Isabella.

Here I used the poppystamps Sylvan Frame over a watercolored panel. The Memory Box Marielle Butterflies die, a banner with the poppystamps classic ribbon die and the poppystamps happy Spring die.

  1. Well, Pam… I LOVE the colour green and these cards pretty much all have green in them. So guess what? I like them all 🙂 I do have one clear favourite this time though. Can you guess which one?

    1. I shall tell you if you can’t guess 🙂 Your Geo Fragments card! As far as making you smile goes… We all need people in our lives who can make us smile. Glad you did 🙂

  2. You really have been busy making cards. They make you think of Spring with all those beautiful colors.

  3. Each one is a treasure Pam – you always amaze me with how you combine dies!! Love them all, and the colors are so perfect!!!

  4. Such beautiful cards. I love the blue background behind the cottage!! More great ideas-just haven’t had any time to stamp!! Maybe today!!!

  5. These are all stunning, Pam!! Especially love your treatment of the tree on the first card, and the last card with the delicate butterfly and leaf die, WOW!

  6. Pam, I just love what you do with the Poppy Stamps & Memory Box ones! Had to pin all of these!
    They’re all beautiful!

  7. I really couldn’t choose which card I liked the best because they are all so unique. I love how you use all different kinds of dies together to make your beautiful cards. I would have loved to have taken your class. I can see why it took you so long to die cut everything as you were prepping for your class. Another set of inspiration cards! Going to order a couple of the dies you used, too.

  8. Oh, I really do wish I could take a class or two or three or more with you!! 🙂 I LOVE your cards, and I learn so much just by reading your blog. I could not imagine getting to craft with you in person!! Today’s projects are WONDERFUL!! You are SO CREATIVE!!

  9. Pretty pretty – love the first one the best – (I think)- wish you lived closer – I think you would have at least 2 maybe 3 more students. Maybe a road trip is in our future.

  10. Gorgeous cards, I need to get a wood grain stamp, love the look that gives! such lovely framing of the cottage, both cards are so pretty and I love the cut away card, I want to give this a try again, I have done it with stamps but never with a die cut as my border, I have been seeing so many pretty cards lately doing that! Beautiful colors you used on the last card and like how the sentiment pops against the colors and white of your dies!

  11. Oh, my gosh, I love what you do with your dies! Talk about inspiration, and I can use all the help I can get. Really love how you framed the little Boddington cottage. So cute and such a great idea! Great stuff!

  12. Wonderful cards – I have often called you the Queen of Die Cuts — my daughter and her 4 kids have been here for a week. Now I have to house clean and play catch up!!!
