Memory Box Florentina Wreath and Merry Christmas Posh Script Card…

Hi everyone! Have you started on your Christmas card stash yet?  I’m working away dreaming of all the fun stuff there is out there to make!

Today’s card is a couple new dies and a sentiment from a new stamp set that I used on a previous card.

I die cut the new Florentina Wreath in heavyweight white cardstock and colored it with Copics.

Then I decided to inlay it back into the white panel that I die cut it from!  I love how it looks!  Hopefully you can see it in some of my pictures.

I wish I’d used a lighter brown for the branch so the red berries would’ve shown up better but the dot of white gel pen did help!

Very easy to inlay back in because there’s only the outside panel and the inside panel pieces to piece the wreath back into!  Super easy and classy looking!  That word gives me another idea… die cutting the wreath and then using embossing ink, gold embossing powder and heat embossing to make the wreath gold!

This is an A2 size card… the wreath panel is 4 x 5 ¼ in. then the black mat layer is just a teeny border and the cardbase is 5 ½ x 8 ½ in. folded and scored.

Very traditional again but festive and CAS too!

The sentiment is white embossing powder on TE oreo cardstock and from the new Festive Christmas Greetings stamp set.

Holler if you have any questions…I’m sure I forgot something. lol

OH!  The die cut Merry Christmas is a beautiful new die, Merry Christmas Posh Script!  I die cut it in TE Cherry Pop and white cardstock.

I cut narrow pieces of foam mounting tape for the back and adhered it over the inlaid wreath.

Thank you for stopping by!  Thinking….what to make next!

poppystamps Whittle Dies Two Day Series…

Hi everyone!  We’ll start with food Whittles! lol There are so many of these cute little dies! I need a two week series! (not just two days) lol  Christmas is coming though!  I’m getting anxious to see what Memory Box/poppystamps/Birchpress Designs will have for us!

My three cards today are a 4 bar size, 3 ⅜ in x 4 ⅞ in.  I love this smaller size for the Whittle dies!

We’re a taco lovin’ family so I had to use the sentiments in the Life is Sweet stamp set.  “You guac my world” !  The Happy Birthday from the new Marzipan Greetings stamp set and dies ended up being the tomato! lol Time for lunch! haha   I love the play on words though!  So FUN!

I used one of the Memory Box Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out dies to make the center frame.  I used two greens from the Memory Box Lush Green 6×6 cardstock pad.

Whittle Avocado and Whittle Taco and Nacho cuts from the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads also, Sunny Orange and Lush Green.

I used a pink Copic marker for cheeks and white gel pen for accents. A yummy birthday card! lol

Next….”Heres the scoop” Sentiments from the same Life is Sweet stamp set.

I kept this one CAS, clean and simple.  I cut off the tail of the word balloon from the poppystamps Word Balloons die set… I’m using this die a lot!

Stamped it with the sentiment from Life is Sweet in coffee Ranger Archival ink and inked the edges with Distress Gathered Twigs ink and a mini ink blending tool.  This ink and tool are always out on my table.

I love the detail on this cone!  poppystamps Whittle Ice Cream Cone, die cut in kraft cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs.  The ice cream I cut in kraft also and colored dark chocolate with Copic Sketch Markers.

A radio talk show host I listen to sometimes,  always says “living the dream” if someone asks him how he is.   The last couple years have been closer to living the nightmare in our lives! lol ugh. Some young gal pulled out in front of me on the four lane last night, trying to kill us all!  My horn works, didn’t do any good…she was oblivious!  So I’ll stop worrying about deer running out in front of me and start worrying about dumb drivers!

I adhered them to the card with foam mounting tape.  Oh, the white panel is a Memory Box die from the Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles Set. (I see it’s no longer available, I added some other options to the links below)

The pink cardstock is from the Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Cardstock pad.

Next…”Do all things with Love” from the Marzipan Greetings set.

The only thing food related on this cutie card is the color!  Orange! lol  From the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pad Sunny Orange. (yellows in it too)

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment, “this is a paper hug”!

I die cut a heart in the two colors with the Memory Box Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die.

I die cut the poppystamps Heart Tag Trio in two colors.  Heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder and put the card together.

I think this would be a fun card to make in any color and send off to friends, kids, grands or family!

I was going to put my two other cards in this post too but that’s so much!  I’m gonna post again tomorrow with those two.

So this is all for today! hehe  See you tmr!

poppystamps Geometric Deco Plate Card and Tag…

Hi everyone!  A week can sure go by fast when you have company….even when you have good intentions to get a blog post in!

Today I’m sharing a card and tag using poppystamps new Geometric Deco Plate and Art Deco Birthday Greetings clear stamp set!

Need to whip up a card in a hurry?  poppystamps and Memory Box to the rescue!

I needed a piece of copy paper to shim this plate die…angle it into the machine so you’re not bumping over a straight line!

I embossed the light green card panel underneath the cut with the same die to give it a little dimension… that little ‘extra’.  You don’t want the sandwich too tight though, the paper will crack.  I used the debossed side this time.

Memory Box Fresh Aqua 6×6 cardstock pad!  I love that the papers are already color coordinated for me!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m off to help Amanda put up peaches this afternoon.  We’ve been making yummy peach cobbler…. a great recipe HERE!  My mom used to make this one with rhubarb.  It says use a 9×9 pan but we use 9×13.

Below are links to what I used! All the stores are getting in new stuff!  Cindy is back from vacation and shipping @ starlitstudio.net.  SSS has a $5 off code good through 8/15  YUM521.  Scrapbook.com always has specials!

Two Memory Box 4th of July Cards…

Hi everyone!!! How do you celebrate the birthday of America? We meet at our middle daughter’s and watch the fireworks. Always good for a few mosquito bites.  grrrr

This CAS card is the 2nd card I came up with, scroll down for the 1st.  I had the idea to use this Vertical Line Collage in a flag way.  I didn’t realize that I wanted it CAS though until after I was almost done with the one below! lol  So there’s a card for both styles today!  CAS and CAS plus! lol

God Bless America!

 

The stars and stripes for this birthday wish!  I planned on using a big star but when I took my dies out of my star category, I saw this one and some others and got sidetracked from my plan! lol

Which one do you like better?  I almost think this one could be two cards… the stripes with USA on it and the star border with the sentiment! lol

I had fun anyway… I kept thinking I needed to add some of those star brads I have in the stash!  I had to tell myself, no that would be another card! lol

I like this last picture the best…funny how tipping just a bit shows the dimension.  I wish I’d had them done sooner so I could mail them to someone!  Such a last minute looloo!

Enjoy the festivities this weekend! I do enjoy fireworks…except the booms! haha  Shopping is quieter!

Memory Box and poppystamps Slimline Cards…

Hi everyone! A post today showing more new dies from Memory Box and poppystamps!  Memory Box is known for it’s butterflies!

Two new ones… so pretty!   These could be made up so many different ways and here I am doing monochrome! lol 

Sylvan Butterfly is the larger die set and Glade Buttlerfly is the smaller die set.

I chose the new Memory Box Happy Easter Posh Script die for the sentiment at the bottom but there are a few other new sentiment dies that would be beautiful also… Thank you Posh Script, Just a Note Posh Script and Birthday Mail Posh Script.

I did some inlaying with the new poppystamps Slim Leafy Collage die.  I cut in two colors and stuck the pieces back in.  It’s pretty with them left out too.  Just something therapeutic about using the pieces laying there. lol

For both my cards today I used the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die set… this is a cool set.  I especially love the smallest two for sentiments!  Trim to length!

My next card is another slimline…

I used the new Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim paper pad!  Almost too pretty to use!  I’m proud to say I used two pieces! lol  It took courage I’m telling ya’! lol

The gingham piece I die cut with the new Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles.  The plaid panel is cut with the Slim Basic Rectangle Layers… kinda nice you don’t have to measure!

I LOVE the new Memory Box Wooden Alpha!!!  I used them for SPRING today but I’m thinking masculine next!  So fun!

The light is changing again and always throws me off for taking pictures.  If you want to get a better idea of what the green color is… I stamped ‘happy’ from the new Memory Box  Big and Little Reverse Words stamp set with Altenew Frayed Leaf stamp pad!  I tried several greens and this one was right on as far as matching this gingham paper.

The purple I used for the Wooden Alpha is from the new Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad.

What better to put on a SPRING card than flowers and this new Memory Box Gerber Stems die set is perfect for this card!  Sweet blooms that will be beautiful colored too!  Our middle daughter had beautiful Gerbera Daisies for her outdoor, wildflower setting wedding.  Good memories!

Holler if I missed something.  I’m not sure what the standard size, if there is one, is for a slimline card.  These both ended up 8 ⅝ ths long and 3 ⅝ ths wide. I finally wrote down what size to cut the base so I don’t have to keep figuring it out every time!  ❤

Have a creative Friday afternoon!  Thank you for visiting my blog this week!

NEW Memory Box Dies…Sweet Bay Collage and Verdant Leaf Collage…

Hi everyone! Two clean and simple cards to share today and I like them!  YAY!  I made a regular A2 size card with the NEW Sweet Bay Collage die, using it on a fold on the inside, as a pop up!

So pretty with this popular pattern paper from Hobby Lobby!  For the two bluegreen cuts, I die cut, then trimmed at the top and the bottom of the stem, then added/adhered the two leaves that completely cut out.  So pretty with the white contrast!

But then you have to decorate the front! haha  I just used the Rectangle Basics die set and die cut rectangles to fit the sentiment from poppystamps Friendship and Kindness clear stamp set.  I heat embossed in black detail powder on the bluegreen cardstock from TE.

I should’ve turned it toward the light better to catch the shine of the embossing powder!

My second card, I was inspired by a friend who sent me a card in the new mini slim card size 3 ½ x 6!  The new Verdant Leaf Collage is the perfect size for it!  I have another idea to try with this die but I wanted to go ahead and post because otherwise I just get too many pictures and the post gets too long!

The green turned out kind of blah. ugh. eek!  It’s Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness Oxides, then water and gold spatters.

Sentiments from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set and Friendship Floral Heart stamp set. I black heat embossed the Thank You on vellum.

Before I go, I want to tell you the measurements for the pop up inside piece on the first card.

  • For the first card cut your 8 ½ x 11 piece of white cardstock in half, exactly 5 ½ inches.  Leave one but cut the other one down to 8 inches, so it’s 5 ½ x 8.
  • Die cut the Sweet Bay Collage die centered in the 5 ½ x 8 piece, then score that piece at 4 inches… that will be your mountain fold.
  • Then I scored 1 ⅜ inches from both sides of that center score line and those will be your valley folds.
  • Then all that’s left is to finish everything and glue the longer sides to the inside of your regular A2 size card base with a side fold.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thank you for stopping by!  Make something today!  Copy or try something new! hehe  I have a collection of ideas I want to copy…we need a national copy day so I get some made! lol  ttul!

Valentines with NEW Memory Box Dies…

Lots of pictures to share with you today!  You can tell by the colors here, it’s my usual Valentine ‘look’! ❤

I started with the black/plaid card and ended up with so many heart pieces by the time I cut the new Sprinkle Heart collage die in a few colors!

That led to the next card, then that card led to the next…you know how it goes when you have pieces and dies spread around! lol

I used the new Memory Box Sprinkle Heart Collage in kraft color and red cardstock.  The two complete hearts are from the smallest heart in the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die set.

The sentiments are from the Memory Box Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set.

I used one of the plaid papers from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

 

Here’s the heart cuts in white from the Sprinkle Heart Collage.  I really liked how this turned out.  I had cuts from the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out too.  So I just messed around til it pleased my eyes!

I used a sentiment from the poppystamps Greeting Basics set for inside the heart.

I don’t know about you but I’m still using up all the twine!  I like Valentines day as a carry over for using red.  It’s my favorite color! lol

This card was inspired by an old card that I have sitting out on my book shelves in my office. It’s older than my blog! But I still love the card, so here’s this year’s addition! lol

Do you have any of the Memory Box 3D embossing folders yet?  They are all gorgeous!  This one is called Gracious Leaves.

Then more plaid paper from the Memory Box Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

I die cut and inked the new Memory Box Woodgrain Heart and then die cut the new Sending Love Posh Script 3 times in red, glued them together and adhered to the heart.

I layered the plaid on to a piece of black cardstock also.

These 3 cards are all A2 size and flat to mail!

This last card is a small card, 3 ½ x 3 ½ inches.

I used some more pieces from all the die cuts I was making.  ❤  It makes me happy!  lol

The sentiment is from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set again.

I hope you’re inspired to make some fun CAS valentines to give to friends and family this year. ❤

More to come!  Thanks for stopping by!

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 Charming Snowman Collage Card…

As I started thinking about making up this snowman, I knew I wanted to use plaid! Snowmen always melt my heart. ❤

I started with the new Memory Box Charming Snowman Collage and die cut it three times in white cardstock.  I colored the top snowman layer with Copic Sketch markers and added a little white gel pen. I glued the three snowman outlines together and inlaid them back into just one of the panels that I die cut with Memory Box Rectangle Basics set. His nose is three layers of the carrot cut.  The eyes are colored in with a black glaze pen.

I hope the picture explains it better than I did with words!  😀

I die cut the Memory Box Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs from TE cardstock for the bottom left corner.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from  poppystamps Christmas Quotes stamp set and coordinating die.

The plaid and dot papers are from Memory Box.  I’ll link everything below. Holler if I forgot anything!

How is your Christmas card creating coming a long? hehe Hard to believe it’s almost Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by!

Two Cards With poppystamps Stained Glass Poinsettia Die…

Hi everyone!  Whew, I’m slow editing pictures and getting a post written! I had these two cards made before Breanna passed away.  Thank you all so much for your kind comments, cards and emails.  Your expressions of sympathy and prayers mean so much!  I had no idea and I wish I still had no idea!  It still doesn’t feel real or believable. The sorrow comes in waves and at times it feels like my heart is being squeezed. All I know to do is carry on…love harder, appreciate more and be thankful to God for the time we do have together!

I had fun using this new poppystamps Stained Glass Poinsettia die two ways.  This card is the die cut four times.  One time I made sure the pieces stayed intact and colored the flower petals and rays with Copic Sketch Markers. Then I glued the other three frames on top and filled them with Ranger Glossy Accents.  Very fun!  My fingers got a little tired of squeezing the little bottle.  I couldn’t find my big bottle. lol

I stamped a background panel with one of the stamps from the new poppystamps Joyous Christmas Wishes sentiment set.  I really ❤ this set.

Then the JOY oval is from the new Memory Box stamp set and die set Spirit of Christmas.  Another fabulous set for images to color and sentiments!

Both cards are A2 size.

This one I used the new Holiday Glitter 6×6 cardstock pad and the new Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.

I die cut the new Stained Glass Pinsettia die in metallic gold cardstock, covered the back with scor-tape, then pieced in the petals and rays that I cut in the glitter pad cardstocks.

Memory Box Merry Christmas Noted Script die for the sentiment on this one.  I die cut it twice and glued together.  I didn’t want it to be too thick.

I die cut the poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames in metallic gold to frame the front.

I have a package of these gold ‘things’, like 3 sizes in the pack.  I used one for the center of the poinsettia.  I think either of the gold cardstocks would work too.  I almost left it red!

That’s it for me today… let me know if you have any questions.  My brain feels cobweb – y!

I have felt your ❤ felt prayers and appreciate it so much!

poppystamps Holly Background Card…

Hi everyone!  A paper pieced Inlaid die cut card to share with you today!  It sure is hard to cover up a neat background! lol

I started by cutting the Holly die in the gingham pattern paper. There were only 5 or 6 inside pieces to keep track of to place back in!  I was surprised!  Dave thought that out for us and made it easy!  YAY!  I die cut in TE Oreo cardstock and placed it in the gingham rectangle, flipped it over, covered it with 2 inch Scor-tape and started piecing in the leaves, berries and branch leaves.

The gingham paper is from the Pebbles Merry Merry Collection from a couple years ago, called Holly Berries 733552.  It’s the back side. Maybe you have it in your stash! ❤

I used the dot papers from the NEW Garland Stipes and Dots paper pad from Memory Box.  The solid leaves were just some cardstock scraps.

Then I die cut the Memory Box Bubble Circles medium size die three times, glued them together, then punched some circles and glued them on for the berries/bubbles on the circles.  I was going to tie jute around the panel and under the sentiment BUT I forgot the plan and taped it to the cardbase so I had to come up with another plan! haha

I like it! lol

The sentiment is from the super fun new Memory Box stamp set Christmas Tiles.  I drew around the stamp with a pencil to get the shape and hand cut it out so it’s not perfect but hey, it adds to the charm, right?! haha

It’s an odd size but will still fit in an A7 envelope and mail for one forever stamp!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Holler if you have any questions!

p.s.  Breanna is coming home today! She’s very weak but we’ll get her fed better and get her stronger to fight this!  So thankful!  Keep praying for us!  We appreciate it so much!

poppystamps Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Card…

Welcome to my paper house home today!  See all the sparkly Christmas trees on display!

I had so much fun creating this home with this new poppy die set, Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set!

Just die cut all the pieces in the colors you want and layer them up.  I used mounting tape for the top layer because I wanted the trees behind the windows. The trees are the new poppy Evergreen Trio die cut in glitter cardstock.

I used the new poppy Snowy Merry Christmas cut in Green cardstock and embossed the snow with white powder. I used a Versamark pen to get the powder to stick to the snow.  The door knob is a tiny brad but it could be a small enamel dot, gem or make your own with black Nuvo drops.

This is one time I liked the embossing powder static! lol  I melted the first time, then while it was hot, stuck it back in the powder for a second and third time to get a deeper snow pile.

The card folds down to fit in an envelope.  It is A2 size but I will use a larger size envelope to mail and have it hand cancelled.

The card folded up but standing for the photo.

Did you notice the new Memory Box Vintage Sled die?  Pretty cool… separate die to cut the slats and steering wood!

For the porch and sled holly and berries, I used the clipped ends of die cuts from the Memory Box Holly Double Arch die set. Fairy Sugar on the roof snow.

Here it is flat, ready to go in the envelope.  Oh, the snow on the bottom of the siding is from the snow die in the Winter House Pop Up Easel Set. I used the roof line and trimmed it down.

I wish I could run across the street and show you this card in real life!  Something the receiver will treasure I’m sure.  I know I would if someone sent it to me!  So have fun making these and sharing your love of papercrafting!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Holler if you have any questions and share your cards with me too!

Memory Box Snowmen Snowglobe and Snowglobe Backer…

I’m back with two more snowglobe tags/ornaments!  These two are glitteriffic and SO CUTE!

I took a phone picture with my hand in it so you’d get an idea of the size of these delightful things!

Pictures do not do them justice… they are just so cute!

I used all four of the new dies for this Snowman one.

Close up of the snowgirl!  I used the Santa hat and ear muffs for her… colored the glitter card with Copics.

I grabbed what I thought was a clear glaze pen and colored over some of the pieces only to find out when they dried it was the white glaze pen! lol  It left them looking snowy and I used them anyway.  I used a black glaze pen on Frosty’s hat.

Close up of Frosty snowguy! Such personality!

Close up of the layers…

The NEW Glitter pads from Memory Box are SO beautiful and die cut wonderfully!  I die cut with blades up and one printer paper shim on top of the cutting plate when I ran through my Big Shot.

Next up, the penguin takes the show.  He’s from the Snowglobe Backer die. Now that I look at my pictures, I wish I’d put some text on this one… like ‘let it snow’!  I think I will do that! ❤  Or a teeny heart on his chest… oh my… why do the ideas come after pictures! ha

I copic colored his feet and nose…his eyes are little black gems…his body and hat are glitter cardstock and his black outline body is black cardstock colored with a black glaze pen.

I used all four dies again for the layers…silver glitter cardstock.

I just realized I haven’t written in the finished size yet!  They are all 3 inches wide and 4 ⅛ inches tall.  So adorable!

I’m excited to see how they sparkle hanging on the Christmas tree!

A closer look at the layers again…

A lot of pictures today…hope they all loaded for you and you get the idea of how special they are! A keepsake to get out every year!

I’ll link up everything below…thank you for shopping through my links.  I really appreciate it.

I changed to paying for my blog awhile back so I don’t have other advertisements in my posts…that should really help if you’re looking at my blog on your phone.  I also have to pay monthly for the link up service for products I use and it takes so much time to take pictures, write posts and make product lists.  So I’m here working for you!

More to come…Christmas is my favorite and it’s August already my dear cardmaking friends!  EEK!  Don’t panic, don’t panic. lol

I’ll be back soon with more sparkle and shine! ❤

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.  ❤

poppystamps Proper Brick House Card…

Hi everyone! I had fun last week playing with some new dies.  I thought, this house needs smoke!  So it turned into a tall Christmas card!

O Holy Night, Starry Burst and Pine Tree Hill dies came out last year in the Christmas releases.  I did use a little bit of sparkle pen in the burst die cut. The Cottage Picket Fence is from this year.

The house and parts are inked with Distress Oxide inks.  I die cut the house again in white and cut out the door and window frames.

I found the stamped sentiment in an old Memory Box set Wintertime Fairies. Linked below too.

This house makes me smile… I grew up in a red brick house.  ❤

Thank you for stopping by today! Talk to you again soon!
