Birch Press Design Piped Icing Star Merry Christmas Slimline Card…

Hi everyone! Getting festive here on the blog today!  I love this folky Christmas ‘look’!  I’ve never been a cookie decorator but now I can with paper! lol

Die cut the star in TE Toffee Cardstock and ink with Vintage Photo. Die cut the icing in white and copic color the star center border.

Same idea with the new BPD Handwritten Merry Christmas and Outline.

I added holly leaves and berries from the new BPD Herbarium Plate Layer A.  TE Cherry Pop and Sweet Basil cardstocks inked with Vintage Photo ink also.

hmmm…now I’m looking at it and wondering if it needed some fairy glitter glue highlights?! lol

I used the thin mounting tape that I love so well to mount everything to the Cherry Pop panel.

I’m linking to some Christmas Challenge blogs…

Birch Press Design Adornment Santa Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s looking a little festive here today!  A super cute Santa in classic Memory Box style!  I love it!

This is the NEW Adornment Santa die from Birch Press Design.  Die cuts in white, a flesh color and red cardstocks.

I added a couple dies that aren’t available anymore, the holly and the postage frame.  I know we all have a collection though! hoho

Be Merry is heat embossed with white embossing powder and this sentiment from the BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings. There is a circle surrounding it but I didn’t ink it.

HOHOHO is from Poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet die set.

My plaid pattern paper is from Dashing Holiday Memory Box 6×6 paper pad.

My card turned out 4 ½ in x 6 ½ inches so it will fit in an A7 envelope and post for one forever postage stamp!

So happy with this card!  Yay!  I hope you like it too!

Tomorrow night at midnight EST, I’ll have a Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember post with a collaboration!  You can guess with who! lol

Birch Press Design Herbarium Plate and Adornment Dove Card…


I’m back!  I didn’t put the glitter cardstock pads away! 

Another die cut and glue fast and easy card you could mass produce! 

Using the NEW Birch Press Design Herbarium plate Layer A and NEW Adornment Dove dies!

I die cut layer A in the blue green and green.  I had to shim the blue green layer with a folded piece of copy paper to completely cut it (the glitter cardstock is thick) so I knew when I ran the green piece through, it wouldn’t completely cut out the design.  When you layer the green under the blue green it really adds to the depth if it has the design partially cut into it.  I should’ve taken a picture!  I hope that makes sense! 

I added two strips of 2 inch scor-tape on the back of the green layer to make sure all the pieces stayed in it and then I just used that to adhere it to a white A2 cardbase.

I glued the blue green layer over the green layer with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue.

I die cut the solid backer Adornment Dove die in the champagne-ish color glitter cardstock and the outline Adornment Dove in white glitter cardstock.  

I LOVE that there’s a backer die for this dove!


Die cut the berries with scraps of red glitter cardstock… there are only three sets of berries, so easy to glue in if you put small pieces scro-tape on the back of the blue green layer before adhering it to the green layer. 

Die cut the Peace Honey Script die from red and white glitter cardstock and glue it on.  I used small pieces of mounting tape on the leg of the ‘p’ and behind the ‘c’.

Easy! yay!  Another card done…almost… I didn’t stamp the inside yet!  I’ll be sorry later! haha

Thank you for stopping by to see this.  It’s so pretty IRL.  I wish I was a professional photographer that could capture the true glitter and sparkly of this cardstock! 

I’m thinking this dove could be made into an ornament and even layered on a gift loosely with a tag!  So pretty!

Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone! Welcome to my attempt to show how glittery amazing this glitter cardstock from Memory Box is and how fun to use it with this new BPD release!  I’m sitting here looking at the real card wishing I could just show it to you IRL because it is so sparkly and pretty!!!

This was a fast card to make…all die cutting and so easy with a pad of 6×6 glitter cardstock!

Here it is from the side.  I die cut a white cardstock base with the easel die in the set, then I die cut from the glitter paper and glued it to the white card die cut.  Because of the 6 x 6 size of the glitter cardstock, I had to make it in two pieces.  It worked fine, you really can’t tell it. 

I’m going to say it again… it was so easy to make! lol  Cut and glue!  This would be a great card for a class or a cardmaker get together!

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the BPD Christmas Ornament and Labels stamp and die set but I couldn’t decide if I wanted on the card for the pictures!  So it’s laying off to the side.  I will glue it on when I send it.

So pretty too… just glam it up!

It could easy be made into an ornament to hang on the tree or a gift tag!

It folds up so nice and will easily fit in an A2 envelope and mail for one postage stamp.

I added a Memory Box Christmas Fairy Drop in red on the bow.  Boom!  Done!  Taking pictures, trying to capture glitter cardstock took longer! 

***Bonus – None of this glitter comes off!!!  Thank you Memory Box! lol

Thank you for visiting today!

NEW Memory Box Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Card and a storage tip…

It’s a beautiful day here in south central Iowa! I should’ve been out riding my bike this morning! lol  Do any of you have an e bike? Do you like it?  I’m sure tempted to go look and try one of them.

A clean and simple look to my card today.  I used a champagne colored foil to hot foil the sentiment but it looks black.  Figures.

I  didn’t think to try to catch the light when I was taking pictures but it really is foil! poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil and Cut Die Set.

I used Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles…it’s my go to for cutting panels it seems.  I like it!

I embossed the new 3D folder and die cut the leaves with the included dies, glued them to the white A2 panel except for the top middle leaf, I used the thin mounting tape that I’ll link to below.

I made some pretty little flowers with poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set from the most recent release.  The smallest die cut, cut two times for each flower and layered together and glued in the center directly to the panel.

I used the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers die from the most recent release and made some pretty tropical dragonflies to land on the card!

Straight forward die cutting and gluing…no inking even! BOOM! lol  Two non inked cards in a row!

Tip: The next two pictures are how I decided to store the 3D folders and dies using the packaging that they come in!  I think it’s really slick!

I take the heavyweight clear piece off of the sturdy cardboard backer they come with and cut the top off of the plastic with a scissors so it becomes a slot when you put it back over the cardboard backer and you can slip the folder and the dies in and out of!  No additional plastic sleeve needed for storage! Perfect!

Thank you for stopping by…holler if you have any questions!

Birch Press Design Tropical Hibiscus and Star Flowers Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Working with new products from Birch Press Designs for my two cards today.  I made a card using them the day before I made these but I didn’t like it so I brought out the strip CAS card design again!  I’ve used it before HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Two for one when you cut two colors of cardstock. The flowers are cut from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads, Lush Green and Fresh Aqua.

I used poppystamps NEW Modest Greetings 2 Foil and Cut Die Set and Silver Foil.

The sentiment on this card is from the Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.

The NEW BPD Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers die set is so pretty with the layered look for the flower and the leaves.  When you die cut it scores the area where you add the layer so you know exactly where to glue the pieces.  Super easy!

The NEW BPD Star Flowers Contour Layers die set and the BPD Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die set (smaller branch) on this card… same as the Hibiscus.  You can see the marks where to place the layers… love that! No guessing or wondering if you got it in the right place.

Both cards are A2 size. The Hibiscus card I used a little bit of thin foam mounting tape, the one I’m linking below.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Make some strip cards!

Birch Press Design Prime Peony Duo Contour Layers Card…

Hi everyone!  This week has zoomed by me! But it’s Peony time of year and a perfect time to showcase this beautiful new die from Birch Press Design.

I watercolored these blooms with the newest set of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens Set A. Die Cut with Strathmore watercolor Brown pad.

Then I added a frame from the poppystamps Scalloped Stitch Frames die set.

I ink blended an A2 size panel of Strathmore Best Mixed Media cardstock (the brown pad).  Wow it blends nice.  I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the first time! and Peacock Feathers. I still use the mini round ink blending foams a lot and that’s what I used here.

Hugs is a new hot foil plate and die set from Birch Press Design also.  Hugs Sugar Script is the name of it.

I used silver hot foil and Bazzill Card Shoppe Robin’s Egg for Hugs.

I glued everything flat except for hugs.  It has thin mounting tape on the ends. Starlitstudio has it in stock!  I’ll link below!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it and hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather has been amazing here this week! YAY!

Simon Says Stamp Arched Greens and SALE!

Back again today with a NEW stamp from the latest Simon Says Stamp release

I received the rubber stamp Arched Greens to create with.  The center Arch section is removable!

I stamped it all in the MISTI on Canson XL watercolor paper with regular Distress inks.  I inked up the stamp and spritzed it and stamped it.  I used two different greens and the new prize ribbon blue.

It needed some flowers so I got out the NEW Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers die set.  I die cut in the same watercolor paper and smooshed the cuts into Worn Lipstick Distress Ink that I’d spritzed with water.

I die cut the center out with the Memory Box Nested Globes die… it was a little short so I had to use the mat to keep it from cutting the bottom straight line, then readjust the die to lengthen the cut. SSS does have a die set that coordinates with this stamp!

The sentiment is a new poppystamps hot foil plate and die set with several sentiments.  I’ll link it below too.

I’m linking to some challenge blogs…

Birch Press Design Flower Cards…

A couple cards to share with you this week…unusual colors for me! Not sure but posting them anyway!  lol

Light pink and bright green!  Do they work?

I really like this plaid paper from the Memory Box Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.

The flowers on this card are from the NEW Birch Press Design Eucalyptus Stem and Berries Contour Layers die set and the Tiny Tuft Flowers and LEaves Contour Layers die set.

Sentiment is Memory Box Just a Note Posh Script die cut in the NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and white cardstock.

Here I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink cardstock and Bazzill Card Shoppe Easter Grass cardstock.

The flower and leaf in the corner are the NEW Birch Press Design Pimpernel Contour Layers die set.

I decided to use the NEW Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Frame die with it because the leaves are similar and I love this die anyway!  It’s so pretty!

The sentiment is from poppystamps Colorful Life stamp set and stamped with Taylored Expressions Cupcake Pink ink in the MISTI. It’s very subtle but I kinda like that for a change.

The berries are a bit bluer in real life…pretty sure it’s Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock and the flowers are Taylored Expressions Candy Corn cardstock.

Just a Note is a Mini Slimline card and the Wishing You strength card is an A2 size card. Both will mail for one forever postage stamp in the USA.

Thank you for coming to visit today!  More new stuff coming and I have some cute to share soon too!

Have a good cardmaking week or organizing week… I’ve been doing that too!  I went on a shopping spree!  oops!  If you ever get the chance to go to Cedar Rapids, IA, be sure to go to Scrapmania and tell Stacy, the owner I sent you!  I promise you, you will NOT be sorry you took the time to go there!

Birch Press Design Flora Plate and Make a Wish Cards…

Hi everyone!  Yikes, it’s Thursday already!  I almost didn’t buy this NEW Saltwater Taffy ink color!  I caved and bought regular, regular refill and oxide.  Sometimes I think I need the sprays but maybe I could make a spray with the refill if I needed to make a mess! haha

I used the ink pad to color my cardstock.  Hammermill Color Copy Smooth 100# Cover is what I used for all the parts of this card. I use it some for copic coloring too.

I inked up two A2 panels, one with Saltwater Taffy and one with Abandoned Coral regular distress and blending brushes and or tools.  Then I did three smaller pieces with  Saltwater Taffy, Abandoned Coral and Bundled Sage.  You can pretty much tell what I die cut with what from my pictures.

I die cut the leaves in the same white from the NEW Memory Box Layered Impatiens die set and inked them up also.  I love these leaves!

The flowers were the waste from cutting layer A, they were white so I inked them too.

It’s a really pretty, feminine color and card in real life! I had to add some pinkish Memory Box Fairy Jewels to the flower centers. 

I made this next card first to get a feel of how the layers looked together.  I hadn’t planned on finishing it at first because, weird colors! lol  Not Spring at all but I like it so I’m gonna throw one picture of it on here! lol 

This is the Flora Plate layers AB and C again with a sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  This is such a gorgeous set!  I love it for front and inside sentiments. 

Holler if you have any questions!  Both cards are A2 size.

Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Slimline Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends…I’m so glad I can grow flowers with paper!  I had fun die cutting and layering these together. There are marks on the cuts so you know where to put the layers!  WOW!  That helps so much!  I use Tombow Mono Multi glue.  My tip for using it is to keep the container laying down at all times.  Do you have any tips to share for gluing?  I’d love to hear them!

I cut a cardbase, 7 x 8 ½ inches and scored the 7 in side at 3 ½ inches for this Slimline Card.

I die cut a white cardstock panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim die set.

Hello is diecut in the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock with the Birch Press Design Hello Topper die.  I didn’t use the backer that comes with it but I need to, it’s cool!

The NEW Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Contour Layers I die cut with four of the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads.  I was brave with color today! lol

I also used the NEW Birch Press Design Tiny Tuft Flowers and Leaves Contour Layers die set.  Die cut in the same cardstock colors.

I used mounting tape behind the roses and everything else is glued directly to the panel.

My pictures feel huge but I sized them 200 pix smaller than I usually do. eek! lol  I hope they show up on your screen ok! The first four are the same size as the card when I hold the card up to my computer screen. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this touch of Spring!  It’s supposed to get up to 70˚ here today!  YAY!  ttul!

Memory Box Enchanting Poppy Stems Card…

Hello!  I had the urge to make more of a pastel card yesterday but I also wanted to use the Nested Globes die set and make a shape card.

Well, a long the way, it ended up that the shape, cut to have a fold at the top, from white cardstock that opens to reveal the message inside. Then I decided to mount it on an A2 Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die cut from one of the lightest greens in the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Fun for a change! I stamped the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the NEW Birch Press Design Kind Hearts stamp set.  It’s a gorgeous stamp set! I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide for this in the MISTI, inked and stamped 3 or 4 times.

I used the smallest Nested Globes die to stamp ‘Hello’ on. The HELLO stamp is from the Memory Box Peony Garden Wreath stamp set.

I die cut the Memory Box NEW Enchanting Poppy Stems from a white cardstock that has a little bit of texture.  Then I inked the pieces with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for the leaves and stems.  I inked the poppies with Altenew Cotton Candy Ink and then a little bit of Taylored Expressions Lavender Glaze ink.  It’s tricky getting the right pink to match the plaid paper.   I hope I got close! lol

I added a video directly from my phone, I wish they let me change the size but this is all I get for my money!

I die cut the plaid from the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad and edged the cut with the same Shabby Shutters Distress ink.  Regular Distress ink.

Basically a very non traditional poppy!  I will have to do a red one next time!

Last week I posted the poppystamps Grand Whittle Pig card and after I got to thinking it’d make a cute shape card to be used on a gift!  So here’s a quick snapshot of how that turned out when I tried it.  Cute! oink!

Sure you could ‘doll’ it up too!  How about a red bandana at the neck! lol

Another quick video…

Birch Press Design Adornment Peony Card…

Hi friends and papercrafters!  A CAS card to share with you today.

Inlaid die cutting with Birch Press Design’s New Adornment Peony die. I die cut the flower in white and ink blended Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink on the flower petals and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks on the leaves with Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. This is an awesome set…the solid dies for backing the die piecing parts is in included!

I die cut the top panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles Die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the poppystamps  Diamond Sentiments clear stamp set with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink in the MISTI.

I added a scatter of several Memory Box Clear Fairy Drops.

It’s lighter, pinker than my pictures show. ugh.  I tried. lol

It’s unusually warm here so far today…55˚ but suppose to go down to 12˚ before the day is over!  eek!  Guess I’ll stay in and keep working.

Memory Box House Frame Background LOVE Birdhouse…

Hi everyone! I pulled out a bunch of dies and designed a Wood Grain LOVE birdhouse.  Valentines Day is coming…it’s hard to believe we’re already into the second week of 2022!

I started by die cutting the MB House Frame Background and the heart opening that comes in this die set.

Then I die cut the window and snow/frosting from the MB Gingerbread House Frame Die set.

I cut the MB Wood Grain Planks one time and used them to put siding on the house frame background. Then I ink blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress ink with the mini blending tool.

Then I glued everything together and wanted a sentiment and a branch!

I cut the branch from the MB Serene Bird and Branch die set and glued it flat to the background panel.

I used the MB Pinpoint Leaf Plate for the background panel.  This panel is larger than an A2 size which I really like!  It’s 4 ½ in. x 5 ¾ in. It will fit in an A6 or A7 envelope and still mail for one postage stamp. I inked the edges of the panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini blending tool also. I really like this die!

I added some natural narrow jute before I glued the house down.

I decided the heart opening could be the ‘O’ for the word LOVE.  I decided to use the new poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet Outline and Background stamp set and the coordinating dies.  Super fun alphabet set! ❤

I die cut in white cardsock and stamped the outline in Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.  I just used an acrylic block to stamp… I only had to stamp the L twice. lol 

I like it! YAY! lol  My favorite colors…or I should say my go to colors! haha

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy cardmaking New Year to you!
