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!  ❤

Memory Box Pine Tree Hill Card and Birch Press Design Splendor Bevel Card…

Hi everyone! Happy card Saturday! Can’t say happy winter yet!  whew! lol

I started out making a Distress Oxide background A2 size panel with Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot inks. I used the round foam mini blending tools for this because I put down a pretty heavy layer of each ink.

I let it dry, spattered it with water, spattered it with gold ink, let it dry again and die cut it with the new Memory Box Starry Burst die.

I die cut and embossed the new Memory Box Pine Tree Hill die from Classic Crest 110# cardstock, stamped happy Winter from the Memory Box Winter Greenery clear stamp set, with the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced Platform… love this set!

I attached the tree panel to the background panel with foam mounting tape.  That’s it!

 

Peace always makes me think blue and night sky-ish!  Here I went with blue glitter cardstock for the panel behind the new Birch Press Design Splendor Bevel Plate and Mini Splendor Bevel Plate sets… glam it up!

Die cut everything in white and then layer it up!

For the Holly, I grabbed a Memory Box die, Antique Holly Label and poppystamps Holly Outline for the berries. Die cut them from glitter cardstock too!

The beautiful Peace die is also new from Birch Press Design, Peace Honey Script.  I can’t wait to use it by cutting the background layer die from a cardstock panel and the word peace mounted on the card base inside the background cut.  Like I did on this card…

 

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back soon!

Embossing Paste With a Stencil…

Celebrate! Hello everyone! I watched a video by Shauna from the Foiled Fox and loved her cards.  I don’t have the same things but I want the stencil she used too! lol Her cards are so pretty…I just had to make some!  The theme for this months swap at stamp club was anniversary so I had added incentive to make!

I used a Memory Box stencil and had to tape off some of it like she did, so go through your collection and be amazed at what you come up with… like I was!

I won’t explain much because her video tells easier than I can write it up…

I’m really happy with my two cards… already used this gold one (for the card swap)!  I used gold glitter embossing powder from Judikins.

The celebrate die is from birchpressdesigns.

 

The next card is the same technique but using Silver glitter embossing powder…

I wish you could see them IRL…so pretty!

This one I used a Simon Says stamp die and stamp set for the sentiment.

Holler if you have any questions.  What’s old is new again!  Gotta love revisiting the old techniques.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hey before you click away…. be watching…NEW Memory Box and poppystamps coming very soon, like tomorrow! hehe

Birch Press Design Viva Layer Die Set Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  It’s a big day… it’s Friday and I’m celebrating that I get to write a blog post, finish a couple birthday cards and go to stamp club this afternoon!  I can’t believe another month has rolled around though!

I had fun making this card a few weeks ago and almost forgot to post it!  Crazy me!

So when you have little die cut dots all over your work surface what do you do?  Paper crafters make a background of course! haha

I love these colors together but I need to tell you, that is dark brown as in chocolate! lol  Not black.  Dark brown always looks black in photos to me.  Naughty child! haha  I used Memory Box Pool, Meadow, Vanilla Bean, white and kraft notecards for this card.

I love working with dies and these layering ones are so fun…kinda like people!  No two alike! Just keep cutting and playing with layering them together.

This Viva Layer Die set is three large intricate dies!  I think this one will be gorgeous made up as ornaments for Christmas!

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!  Hope you get some time to create today!  Be back soon!  I have more to share!

birch press design ADI layer die card…

 


Hi everyone! I’ve been playing with some of the birch press design dies!  I have some fun things to share and I’ll start with this early bird Christmas card!  Whoa! I know… it’s been a long time since I posted Christmas in May!

I grabbed some metallic gold card-stock and started cutting… I didn’t use all the layers…not sure I can even tell you what I did since I moved on to some other designs.  You’ll just want to die cut and see what you come up with by changing out the layers.

I kept it very simple…the background is two pattern papers from a 6×6 pad.  This one is a few years old but I’m sure you have some that will work just as stunningly!  A little gold cord ‘ties’ it all together.

It was a sunny day for taking pictures, so I moved around 3 times and have different looking photos from each spot. I stopped at posting 3 photos at least! lol I wish I could really capture how pretty it is in real life!

 

Hope everything is growing that you’re watering! Our trees are looking good. whew.  Leafing out and soaking up the water and sun.  Kinda scared to get the water bill.  I didn’t Winter over our 3 Endless Summer Hydrangeas that we planted last year right, I guess.  No buds on the old wood.  Fortunately there’s a lot of new coming from the bottom though!  I just hope we get some flowers!  I know….rolling my eyes at myself…Lilly of the Valley pips on the way…hope we can do those right!  We have a lot of shade on the east side of the house. I’d rather make cards but…sometimes you gotta go outside! lol

Thanks for stopping by!
