Birch Press Design Banner Heart Layer Die Set Card…

Hi again!  Hearts a plenty!  Next it’ll be bunches of flowers! lol

Once you start cutting these layers, you wonder what it’d look like this way or that and end up with slimline cards!  Birch Press Design NEW Banner Heart Layer set….3 dies in the set.  I didn’t even try just using one or by twos!   How about little stars up in the right hump! Patriotic is good too! Hearts for all occasions really!

I like the pink and more card but you know…I’m partial to red!  ❤

Nothing out of the ordinary here…die cut and glue together.

I did get some stamping on this one though.  Using the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines stamp set… I curved the stamps on a block… they stamped great!  I stuck the cutouts that I threw away in the spot to test though.  I’m a tester stamper! lol  I suppose every once in a while I gamble but for the most part I’ve learned my lessons well! lol

one of the red close up…

For the this one, I used the Memory Box Slim Confetti Plate for the front panel/background… I thought it was playful and fun with the banner look.  Reminds me of that candy that came in dots on paper and you picked it off to eat it.  gag.  Can’t believe the stuff I ate as a kid!  Much better on a card!

The sentiment here is from the NEW Birch Press Design Sugar Script Sentiments 1 Hot Foil Plate and die set.  I foiled it in silver on Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock.

I placed the hearts on wonky and straight. I think they’ll mail fine.  I can’t believe postage is going up again. ugh

Happy Thursday to you and I’m on to the next birthday card.  Our youngest grandson turns 8 tomorrow!  Doesn’t seem possible! We are blessed!

ttul!

Memory Box Blissful Heart and Cuppa Love Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have two cards to share with you today…Memory Box hearts, hearts and more hearts!

I love hearts and you probably love coffee!  I’m a black tea girl… ugh… so I don’t get those swirly heart things in my cup! lol

The NEW Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate is a stunner!  So gorgeous!

I used silver hot foil with it on the lavender cardstock from the Memory Box Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  6×6 cardstock… wow, it takes the foil so nice! So many beautiful colors of mirror card in this pad!

After foiling, I die cut the heart with the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Fits perfect!

I used the Memory Box 3D embossing folder Heart Bouquet for the card panel layer…another gorgeous design by Dave from 2019 but still available… I’ll link below.

The sentiment is NEW from Birch Press Design…You Are Loved Noted Script hot foil plate and die set.  I used Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and silver hot foil.  This picture it looks more champagne – ish color but it’s silver!

So pretty!  Clean and Simple but elegant!

Back to the NEW Memory Box Cuppa Love card… this die is so cute!  I love the heart steam, don’t you?!

I used the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die on this card also.  I cut the largest heart in my cardbase, then I had to back the cardbase on the inside but that’s alright… it turned out nice with white on the inside.  I love the double stitch lines.

Another NEW heart die, Pinpoint Burst Heart from Memory Box for the background insert… I love how they all fit with each other! 

Cuppa is cut in white cardstock, the liquid in kraft and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending took and the heart and saucer in red cardstock.  Super simple die inlaying… love simple puzzles! lol

I used this cute sentiment, ‘It’s the little things’,  from the poppystamps Marzipan Greetings stamp set.  On the inside… ‘this is a paper hug’. 

I love that paper hug sentiment!  Stamped with Archival ink pad Potting Soil.

So fun!  I made these on Monday, took pictures yesterday and made two loaves of bread! It turned out so good!  I’m happy! lol  No stamps for happy bread hugs though! ha!  It must be a two thing kind of week! lol

Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament Easel Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have four easel cards to share with you today.  As I was making these, thinking about how fun and easy, it hit me how cute they would be for table place cards!  They would be beautiful just using the ornament part and hanging on a tree or used for a gift tag with a beautiful bow!

They’re so easy to make…I started with the black one and just kept going trying to use up the pieces!

The NEW Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament is a Layering Set.  I used all three layers for all but one.

The easel part is the Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel die set. I didn’t use the ornament that comes with the set this time but I did HERE in this post.  I’ll link everything below.

Here’s what I did inside this black glossy one.

I used Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock and the NEW Memory Box 6×6 Vintage Pastel Mirror cardstock pad.

The happy Christmas sentiment is from BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings clear stamp set and die set.  I love this set!

So from the black one I carried on to three other variations!

I just got to playing using the same dies and stamp set.  I know…I brought in pink!  A contrasting color!  Out of the box for me! hehe

I spent the afternoon yesterday trying to take pictures and get them light enough.  It just kept getting darker and darker outside as the temperature kept dropping!  So there’s only one picture of the card with pink pastel metallic that was useable.

Here’s the gold with teal…

 

and they fit easily into an A2 size envelope

I love this teal one that I used the pieces from the waste of cutting layers A and B from the teal cuts.

for this one I used the poppystamps Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil and cut die set for the Just For You and With  Love sentiments.

Do you have a favorite?  I think I do but then I change my mind! lol

Thank you for visiting today and hope there’s some inspiration here! I have so much I still want to make but I must start shopping and decorating too!  eek!

ttul!

poppystamps Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit Card and Leaf and Tentril Hot Foil Card…

Hello! How is your Holiday creating going? I cannot believe it’s November can you! Keep scrolling for card #2.

Now this cutie reindeer is going to make you smile!  Isn’t he adorable in his plaid hat!

I love this new die kit and NEW Wintertime Snowflake Frame from poppystamps!

I used the NEW Memory Box Jolly Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad…Memory Box Lush Green and Earth Neutral 6×6 cardstock pads.

such a cutie!

The sentiment is part of the stamp set included in the kit.  I heat embossed in white and die cut with one of the rectangle dies from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas Greetings die.

I love how it turned out!  I hope you love it too! hehe

On the inside I stamped a greeting from the NEW poppystamps Christmas Sparkle stamp set, ‘You make every day seem like Christmas’.  I love this set!   I used Wendy Vecchi English Ivy Archival ink pad to stamp it.  I just bought her English Ivy and Red Geranium Archival ink pads.  I love them too! lol

TIP: I tell you a lot I love this thin big roll of mounting tape that I link to at the bottom of my posts…I always forget to tell you about cutting it though!  I use the non stick scissors that I finally remembered to link to today!  I’m really glad I went ahead and purchased the scissors from Cindy because it makes a difference with sticky tape.  I love that it’s sticky because I’m assured that my card won’t fall apart after the receiver gets it! I love that it’s easier to mail too!  Win! Win!

Next Card…

NEW poppystamps Leaf and Tendril Hot Foil Plate!  Sooo pretty!  This green cardstock is from my stash but now I’m thinking there’s probably a similar green in the Memory Box Cardstock pad.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Keep Christmas Curled Script die in gold foil/mirror cardstock.

Then I die cut it in a piece of white cardstock and inlaid the gold into the white so I didn’t have to glue all the lines!  Scor-tape on the back, flip it over and put in the insides of the letters… that’s easier imo. I also love how it looks!  So professional!

I’m not a big bow person but I love it on this card!  The NEW Memory Box Dreamy Bow die in TE Cherry Pop cardstock.

A mess of sparkly trim behind it.  Gold pearls added to dot the ‘i’s and in the corners. I love these gold pearls from starlitstudio.net.  The perfect sizes!

Both of my cards in this post are A2 size.

Birch Press Design Snowy Circle Layer Set – Two Cards

Hi everyone! I had a little fun with ink blending Distress Oxides and Dies for this A2 size card!

Kitsch Flamingo stamping for the snow and edging with a bit of Picked Raspberry added on the perimeters.

The snow scatter is from an older BPD Celestial Waves stamp set.

I used all three layers of the NEW Birch Press Designs Snowy Circle Layer set.  I inked Layer B with a little bit of the pinks.

Skates are super easy to put together! They’re a NEW Memory Box die that I used already a couple weeks ago with a sled and a few other new dies.  I loved using them as an embellishment on this card.  A little knit cro-sheen for lacing them up.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I did finish it!  I stamped it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink in the MISTI with the ‘May the JOY you find this Christmas follow you throughout the year’ sentiment stamp from the NEW poppystamps Christmas Sparkle set.

I got up early this morning to make this pink card!  I’d already thought it through and it worked!  yay!

Linking to some Christmas Challenges…

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenges – Anything Christmas Goes

Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge – Anything Goes Christmas

Winter Wonderland Challenge – Let It Snow

I made the next card the other day using the same Snowy Circle set but adding the New Memory Box Nested Globe Bases die to turn it into a snowy snowglobe!

Here I used the NEW Birch Press Design Felicity Snowflakes dies and some Fairy Drops for the background.

I used some Lindy’s Magicals powders to ‘paint’ the snowy circles.  I die cut from Smooth Bristol cardstock, spritzed with water and tapped on the powders.  The top layer I just painted with the white and water.

I love the sparkle/shimmer it gives the die cuts!

The JOY on both of my cards is trimmed from the NEW BPD Find Joy and Outline die.  I just used the JOY part.

The foil cardstock I used is from the Memory Box 6×6 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  This pad has metallic and pearl cardstocks.

On the inside of this second card, I used the same sentiment set but different stamps.  This one says ‘May your Christmas truly Sparkle’ and ‘With much Love’.  I stamped with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink in the Misti and it turned out beautiful.  To bad I didn’t take a picture of it! 

I didn’t try this for a shaker card but I’m thinking it’d be really pretty made up as one!

Thank you for sticking with me for this long post!  I appreciate you stopping by!

Birch Press Design Crochet Snowflake Card…

Hi everyone!  Some snow in our future I’m sure but paper snow you don’t have to scoop or blow!  Depending on how many bits fall on the floor I guess! haha

I love the plaids in Memory Box 6×6 pads!  This is one from the new Jolly Christmas PP1019 pad.  I wish I could show it to you in real life.  I love these colors together but once again I struggled for hours to get pictures to show the right colors and I didn’t succeed!  So buy the pad!  You won’t be sorry!

It’s a tealish, more grayish, greenish blueish color IRL.  More like the first picture, but darker.

I used the NEW Birch Press Design Crochet Snowflake Layering Die set… so pretty!  I love it!

I die cut layer C in the plaid paper, then in gold and inlaid the gold into the plaid.

Glued Layer B die cut in black on top of the gold.

Glued Layer A die cut in this teal/gray/bluegreen cardstock I have in my stash on top.

I used the NEW poppystamps Joy Freestyle Script die for the sentiment!

Not a hard card at all but I did cut the layers in all the colors before I decided which ones to use. lol

I added some gold pearls and I almost added more but I wanted that color to show through, so I stopped.

And here’s the inside!  I stamped it with a sentiment from the Memory Box NEW Sweet Christmas set that I love!  It stamps up great and lots of good words!

It’s a square card 5 ½ x 5 ½ inches.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Talk to you again soon!
