3 Cards from Memory Box… Let It Snow!

Three cards, three pictures of each, three snowflakes or four!  ❤

I’ll start with this Clean and Simple one…still loving this blue green pine needle color!

Just a strip of Memory Box plaid with gold foil lines in it…

poppystamps Shiny Snowflakes again…

Memory Box Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs die and Let It Snow sentiment from Memory Box Spirit of Christmas stamp set.

Card size 5 ½ inches square.

Next one is another wreath…wreaths are always in season!

Same Let It Snow sentiment, same snowflakes but I went back to the new Memory Box Bountiful Wreath.  Die cut and inked with a little Distress ink.

Some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink brushed on to shadow the die cut.

This one is 5 ¼ inches square…

The last one is a statement in contrast for sure! 😀

Bold plaid from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 pad…same sentiment…same snowflakes with the addition of Birch Press Design Frosty Flake Layer Die set…I used all three, A, B and C.

The day I was making these it snowed big time, then it didn’t snow the next day but it snowed again yesterday!  It’s nice and bright here! Now that I’m sitting here looking at the pictures, I kinda wish I’d tried black for the top, fine snowflake layer….hehe… next time!

Here it is January 2nd already.  It feels like we had three Saturdays this week!  Anybody else think that too?! lol

Thanks for stopping by today! All the best to you and happy cardmaking new year too!

Memory Box Large Vintage Sled Tag and Birch Press Design Pinpoint Snowflake…

Sleds always take me back to my youth and so many nights of going to Fairmont Park for sledding and ice skating.  The city closed off the perfect street for sledding.  So much fun!

This new die is perfect for cards and tags a like.  I used the Christmas Plaid paper pad paper and Christmas Quotes stamps and coordinating dies.

The mistletoe sprigs are from the new Mistletoe Wreath die set.  I cut two, added baby pearls and twine.

I posted a snowflake ornament on Instagram not realizing the die was discontinued.  So I decided to use this new die from Birch Press Design to make the same type… the pinpoint design of this Pinpoint Snowflake die makes it really easy to do… you don’t even have to score the center lines, you just fold right on the dots!  I used six die cuts in white cardstock and ink blended on the edges after it was glued together.

So pretty… I need to get it hung on the tree and see if the light shines through the dots!

Not the best pictures… my camera settings got off and I didn’t realize it. ugh.

and  little video…

I think I’m done getting the Christmas tree up…I want to get the garland on the stairway still…eek!  How are you doing?

Thanks for stopping by!

Three Cards with Birch Press Design Stamps and Dies…

Hi everyone!  I had some festive cardmaking time yesterday…no plan…just winging it! I started with the teal-ish looking ornament card using the new BPD Christmas Ornament and Labels stamp set and coordinating die set.  This could be made up so many different ways!  Here I did some oxide and regular distress ink blending in Peacock Feathers, Speckled Egg and Evergreen Bough.

First I heat embossed the stamp in Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder on white cardstock. Then I ink blended. Then I die cut the ornament from that panel. Stamped/heat embossed the label on gold metallic cardstock and die cut it.  The greens are from a die included in the coordinating die set. So is the ornament topper.  There is a stamp for the topper too but I missed stamping it first!

All three cards are A2 size and mailable.

Then I got out the Delicate Pastel Glitter 6×6 cardstock pad.

Birch Press Design is known for their layering dies… this one is the NEW Mini Snowflake Frame and I used all three layers in the three pink glitter colors in this cardstock pad. Glued them together and cut the rectangles with the Baiscs set.

The silver cardstock is a matte silver but it looks super gray here…it’s really prettier IRL!  Like the close up picture.

I die cut the BPD Joy Honey Script die… the bottom layer is three glued together.

 

This one, I just used Layer C from the BPD Mini Snowflake Frames and die cut it in the silver from the Polished Foil 6×6 Pad.  I glued it to a black glossy cardstock panel that I layered on to another layer of the silver foil paper.

I had a scrap of the glossy black so I glued the die cut Big Peace Sugar Script die to it and layered it over the top with mounting tape.Very CAS but be careful with your glue and glossy cardstocks!  eek! (I didn’t check on this Peace die before I made the card.  I don’t see that it’s available anymore, there are other peace dies that would work just as well!)

It’s a very striking card in person.  I was thinking while working on this that I’ve always done some gold/silver/glossy black cards in the past. What a pretty combo… I need to do it again this year too! lol

I started decorating a little around the house for company over the weekend. I love Christmas and being with family and friends…what I need right now!

God bless your Thanksgiving this year. I am thankful even in the midst of hard. We’ll just keep papercrafting ok?! ❤

Birch Press Design Autumn Breeze Plate Card…

Hi everyone!  Fall is definitely in the air here in Iowa! kachoo!  I had fun making some inside Fall with this card!

I die cut all three Autumn Breeze Plates in white cardstock, then I inked them with Distress Ink pads and ink blending tools.

I used Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs, Peeled Paint, Carved Pumpkin and Rusty Hinge ink pads.

My cardbase is Taylored Expressions Sweet Basil cardstock. That’s the darkest green showing through.

Fall is in the air sentiment and die is from the NEW BPD Pumpkin Lacework stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Memory Box NEW Snowglobe Dies and Sales!

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy to start sharing Christmas creations with the NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!!!

I love snowglobes and I have 4 ready to share.  I was going to put them all in one post but I got to thinking it might be confusing so I think I’ll do them one at a time.  Rest assured, you will want all four of the dies though. hehe

I want to escape to here! The roaring fire, the peaceful snowfall… my soul says yes!

The blog post right before this one, I posted a video on how these dies go together…click HOME and scroll down to see the video in the previous post.  Very easy to put together!

Here’s how I put this together…

*die cut the Snowglobe Backer die in heavy white cardstock

*die cut the Snowmen Snowglobe in heavy white and TE Blue Corn cardstock (back layer)

*stamp and heat emboss in white embossing powder the Birch Press Design Celestial Waves stamp that looks like snow on the Blue Corn sky, then inlay the sky into the white Snowmen background die cut

*die cut the Radiant Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock, I just used the frame part (middle layer)

*die cut the Cabin Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock (top layer)

*die cut the cabin from TE Toffee cardstock and the snow from Memory Box glitter cardstock pad

*die cut the smoke from a piece of vellum

*hand cut a square of vellum to go behind the cabin and color it yellow on the backside to mimic light in the windows of the cabin

*I die cut the cabin in TE Cherry Pop to get the door and the chimney

*I die cut Santa and his reindeer in shiny black cardstock, if you don’t have that, you could heat emboss it with black embossing powder or color it with a black glaze pen or cover it with glossy accents to get a shiny die cut

I use a piece of  ⅝  inch scor-tape on the inside bottom of the Snowglobe Backer die cut. That holds each layer in place.

I’m so happy with how this turned out!  Perfect little gift, or tag or I can see these all over the Christmas tree as ornaments!

Thank you for clicking over and I’ll be back with the other three I’ve made so far.  ❤

Birch Press Design Snowflake Card Series Day Five…

Welcome back to Day Five of my 2019 Snowflake Card Series!  Today we’re going homespun with this look! Joy pretty much sums it up for me! I love this big splash of ‘snow’ in the center of my card! 😀

I die cut all three layers of the Birch Press Design Glitz Snowflake dies and glued them together.  It’s not hard to line them up at all!

I didn’t use any mounting tape, everything just glued or taped. yay!  Easy to mail!  This is an A2 size card but I would use an A6 size envelope, same cost to mail but that gives you room for the little bow at the top!

I stamped and heat embossed the words ‘to the world’ with white embossing powder on Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock.  You have to be picky about black cardstock for embossing. Some brands just don’t work well.

A band of TE Cherry Pop across the center…the Big Joy Sugar Script die cut in TE Oreo and Toffee and start gluing.

The pattern paper is from my stash but there are stamps that stamp a similar pattern!  In fact I think there is one from poppystamps! I wish I’d thought of that while I was making! I’ll link it up. I linked to another buffalo plaid paper too.

I inked up all the paper edges and die cuts with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs and the mini Ink Blending tool.  I like the mini foam for edges when I don’t want a lot of ink everywhere.  So don’t toss those minis just because you bought the brushes!  😀

A fun card and really pretty much clean and simple.  A little May Arts jute tied around the top and tada!

Two more days to go!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog all week and I hope you will make it back for the next two days! It’s been so fun to share and to hear from you too! I’m smiling as I type this!  ❤
