Memory Box Poinsettia Pillar and Radiant Frame cards…


Hi everyone! I’ve been making cards…just not doing a good job of getting them posted! I finish one and get excited about something else laying there and have to make! lol  Then my camera setting got changed and I didn’t realize it and couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my pictures!  Finally saw the problem this a.m.! SCREAM!

I have posted a couple videos on instagram though…click the link in my side bar and you can see them even if you don’t have an account. Be sure to click the like button while you’re there!  It’s amazing how much that encourages a gal!  I love hearing from you if you can comment too!

My cards today are using the Memory Box Poinsettia Pillar, Radiant Frame dies and the poppystamps cottage platform and Swirled Love dies.  I cut the platform twice in one 4.25 x 5.5 piece of card-stock.  This was not what I intended to do with it at all! lol  I’ll still have to do the other soon! That’s what happens when you leave a piece laying around not finished!

American Crafts Glitter card-stock and Bazzill Gold Foil card-stock from Starlitstudio 


I die cut everything for this card from white card-stock and inked with Distress Ink pads and the ink blending tools. Festive Berries, Candied Apple, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Fossilized Amber.

Wishing Script is a poppystamps die that coordinates with the poppystamps Christmas Greetings clear stamp setI die cut Wishing three times and glued them together with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

OHHHHH – don’t forget the enamel dots I made myself with the NEW Nuvo Drops and Ranger Enamel Accents!  Move over sequins! lol (I make the dots on scrap release paper from scor-tape, then glue them to my card when they’re dry, cuz I could easy mess up my card I’m sure!)

This last picture is of three cards I started and never finished with these same dies.  I thought I’d go ahead and show them so you could see more color schemes…the sky is the limit!


Thanks for stopping by again!  I’ll be back real soon because I have more and will be showing the ‘even more’ NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!  So many beautiful dies!  TFL! and TTUL!

  1. oooh, ahhh, these are all so beautiful pam! i love the glitter paper; and here i’ve been messing, literally, with loose glitter. now i have to add the no drops to my shopping list; i love the look of a tiny embellishment that doesn’t detract from the focal point. looking forward to seeing what you create with the new release too.

  2. Love them all Pam….looking forward to the others…Just ordered the Hour Glass because I loved your card and the Prills….how do you like spending my money? LOL

  3. Wow you have been busy and creating such gorgeous cards! Love all the inlays on the candel cards! I need to know what changed on your camera I’m having trouble with white…uggg. Love the new drops !

  4. Incredible details – oh I love the enamel drops!!! Brilliant cards from a brilliant lady!! Just beautiful Pam!!!

  5. Gorgeous cards, Pam. It continues to amaze me how you use all kinds of different dies and put them into an elegant card. The first one is my favorite with the pillars.Love the glitter. I just started to use those Nuvo dots. They are amazing! Great job, Pam! Hope your camera is okay now.

  6. What gorgeous cards Pam! I really like that first one! So elegant! I, too love those Nuvo drops! I have several colors! I like how you can make any size you need and they are so bright and shiny! Love them! 🙂

  7. Oh, my gosh, where to start? Let me just say they are both so incredibly beautiful! All that fabulous colored glitter paper and gold on the first card and your expertly applied sponging on the second. I don’t dare look at any new dies, but I did, anyway. Cindy has a great collection in her shop! I’ve heard about those Nuvo drops before. I don’t know if you’re simply expert at applying them, or if they’re really that fantastic, but I absolutely love how they look. Interesting that you make them separately and then apply. Good idea! I love non-lumpy accents. And the Ranger Enamel Accents… hmmm… ‘spose I’ll have to go check them both out. They don’t take up much room…

  8. WOW Pam, your cards are gorgeous! All are beautiful but your first card is my favorite–just stunning with all the gold and the sparkle! I bet the stores sell out every time you post your cards. Great inspiration Pam, TFS!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
