Winter Scene Bridge Fold Card and two more Valentines…

Good Saturday to you!  This card is perfect for us this week!  A week of beautiful snow!  The glisten-y, sparkly kind!

When I saw these sledder dies at Starlitstudio…I KNEW I HAD to have them! hehe   All things Winter scene need to be mine! haha

I used a variety of companies for this… I’ll link up what I used at the bottom of the post.

The Bridge fold card is so fun…I love how you can use so many dies for the scene and it can be layered up with so much dimension but still FOLD FLAT for mailing!  YES!

Start with the base cut 4 1/4inches by 8 inches.  Score at 1 1/4 inch and 2 1/2 inches from both ends…fold them in how you see them in my pictures.  For the inside layers, I cut them 3 1/2 inches and score each end at 1/4 inch and they fit perfect every time!  I use 1/8 inch score tape to secure them in position.

Holler if you have any question!  😀

Linking up my Winter Bridge card to CAS on Friday Challenge – Dies

Next up a couple Valentines…

I’m getting a lot of mileage out of this Pinpoint Heart die and the Have a Heart die set. Panel cut with the Rectangle Basics die set.

Thank you ladies!

 

Here I made a little scene with the poppystamps Valentine Fairies stamp set and coordinating die set. I meant to color the blonde with a funky color hair but I forgot!  So used to doing ‘normal’ hair! hehe

Stamped in the MISTI, die cut in the Big Shot and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Bike is R46, the girls are the R0’s.  Memory Box notecards in a couple fun colors, Parsley and Pool!

poppystamps Bridge Fold Card and Memory Box tag…

Here we are at countdown week and I’m just ‘elfing” away here! Lots of fun to create still!  eek! I wanted to share a couple things today though and hopefully be back with more!

I love making these Bridge Fold cards with the poppystamps or Memory Box frames on the front.

For this one, I used poppystamps Pine Needle Clearing die cut from Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock and inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink and an ink blending tool.

I die cut the Memory Box Small Winter Sled from the same white cardstock and colored it with Copics (E40’s, E07) and a silver gel pen. I die cut poppystamps Poinsettia Mini from the same white cardstock and colored the largest with Copic YG67 and the smaller two with Copic R46.

The fence is from the Memory Box Open Studio Fanciful Fences die set. Again die cut in the same white and I just left it white.

The house is poppystamps new Classic Cottage die, cut from the same white and colored with Copics too, E07, E47, E81, E83, T3 and T5.

Two snow hills cut with the Memory Box Stitched Curves die set. Same white cardstock.

In the very back you’ll see the new poppystamps Tree Trunks die.  I cut it in white also and colored it with Copics E44 and 47.

Then there is this super cute new Surprise Deer die, new from poppystamps too.  I die cut it from kraft cardstock and inked the edges with Distress ink Gathered Twigs and an ink blending too.  I added a few white spot with a white gel pen.

here’s a photo of the layers..sorry, I forgot to change the F-stop to make it all in focus but I think you can still see….

The tree trunks cut is mounted directly to the cardbase with strips of  thin mounting tape. The fence and cottage are mounted to a snow hill. The deer (legs) are glued directly to a snow hill. The pine needles cut is glued directly to the card base and the fence is mounted to the top with thin mounting tape foam.

This is an A2 size card and folds flat to mail… I make sure it fits through the ¼ inch slot the PO requires for one postage stamp.

I mail my A2 cards in an A6 size envelope though.  I just feel like it protects them better… postage is the same.

One more photo!  A tag I made with the new Memory Box Build a Snowman die.

I played around with this last week and now I can’t remember what ink I used for the background.  I’m sure it was Distress but not sure if it’s oxide or regular.  Pattern paper for the hat and scarf.  Nuvo drops for his ‘coal’ eyes, nose and buttons.  I had a terrible time with the eyes, whew, good thing they can be coal cuz this was the third time! lol

Fresh Snowfall Nuvo on the snowflake from the new poppystamps Shiny Snowflakes dies.

The tag is an Avery Elle set.. I don’t usually mix other companies with ps or MB but one of the granddaughters had extra cut and it was just laying there and I didn’t even think! 😀

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my card/tag and are enjoying all the ‘making’ of the season!  I am!

Memory Box, poppystamps One Horse Open Sleigh Bridge Fold Card…

Hi everyone!  I’ve been playing with the Bridge Fold card again.  To see how I made this, scroll down to the post before my last post for the pictures and video.  YES!  It folds and fits in an A2 envelope to mail for one US postage stamp!

Three photo sessions and I still didn’t capture the sparkle like I wanted to!  I sprayed this with lots of Shimmer Sparkle spray.  When you hold it to the light…it’s magical!

Click on the pictures and they will enlarge…

I used the oddest colors together for this Distress Oxide background!  I ink blended Iced Spruce and then Lucky Clover!  I know… but I really like it!

All the dies I used are in the links below…here and here are cards I made last year with the House in the Woods die.

Memory Box Sleighing in a Winter Wonderland Bridge Fold Card…

Hi you guys!  I wish you could come over and see this card in real life!!!  I’m so excited to share it with you!

I made a video so I’m not going to cover every detail with text here…

I forgot to say in the video though, that I did a Distress Oxide ink background with Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot on the mail card-base.  Water Splatters and Frost Shimmer Spray splatters on it too!  I love it so much! lol

I used several dies and I cover that in the video and links below because yes, you do need these!  I use these dies over and over… for timeless creations. hehe

LOOK!!!  It folds flat to fit in an A-2 envelope!  So awesome and you don’t really need any embellishing because it’s so stunning on it’s own!

I added sparkle to the roof, trees and flakes but it’s still hard to see.  I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter brush pen.

This last picture is with my iPhone…at night under the Ott lite but oops…photo bombing stuff all around! lol  I love how you can see that one frost circle that looks like a moon?!
