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!

Simon Says Stamp Release….Send Happiness…3 Cards!

Happy Monday to you!  Simon Says Stamp has a new release and they sent me this flower die to play with…I was already doing napkin die cutting so I went ahead and did this new Etched Flower die the same way!  Scroll down to THIS post for a link to the technique/how to video.

I stamped the background for the flower die with the tone on tone look and the SSS Damask Background cling stamp.  I die cut three panels, a white one, the stamped one and a dark pink one with the SSS Frames die, then inlaid pieces from each and taped them together on the back side.  I mounted this panel with Mounting tape.

The sentiment is a stamp from the SSS Sending Sympathy clear stamp set and die cut with the SSS Stitched Rectangles die set.  I had to recut it to get it the right size.

 

The NEW Etched flower die cuts two connected flowers…so I had this single flower left over and parts from the Frames die cuts so I made another card!

The sentiment is also from the Sending Sympathy stamp set.  I taped the pieces together on the back side of the panel and used foam mounting tape to mount it to the cardbase.

My third card…I had an idea but this isn’t anywhere near what I was trying to do! lol  I like it though! lol

I debated whether to stick with a thank you or make it a sympathy card… it could easy go for any occasion!

There’s the NEW Speckled Egg Distress ink is what I used on the white Etched Flower die cuts this time… peeled paint for the stems.

Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad for the three papers.

A thank you stamp and some cotton cord and I stuck it all to a white cardbase.

All three cards are A2 size.

Have fun checking out this new release and thank you for shopping through my links!  I appreciate your support so much!

5 Memory Box Die Cards….

I’ve been working on cards!  This is a long post so keep scrolling!  

I wanted to make something cool with this NEW Leafy Tree die… it looks Summery anyway!  I also used the NEW Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set… I like it a lot!  I die cut the Leafty Tree Frame in TE Peapod cardstock and colored the tree trunk with a dark brown Copic Sketch Marker!  It covers the green really well!

The sentiment is from the NEW poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.  So many good sentiments in this set.  I’m going to get a lot of use out of it.

I love how the leaves can be embossed with this Leafy Tree Frame die and then inked with a little stamp pad ink.  I used TE Peapod ink to match the cardstock. The background is Tumbled Glass Oxide ink brushed on to a Toffee/kraft piece of cardstock…same as the card front. I like the look it gave as compared to using it on white.

 

The next card…same dies… but I cut the Leafy Tree Frame in Brown, then in a scrap of green and trimmed off the frame and trunk parts..

Sentiment from the same poppystamps set…

 

Next I played with the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle…

This card is greener IRL… the pictures turned out more blue… it looks ‘beachy’ here! lol  I think I might have to switch back to east windows for Summer pictures.

I used the NEW Stylish Rectangle Trio die and the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle for this card and inlaid them both in the card panel that I pieced together with three Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstocks, HERE

The happy die was new last year… then some enamel dots and why did this card take me hours! lol   I guess that’s pretty normal around here. lol


Next two cards I used the same Birthday circle die, just cut it out from the frame but one is the NEW pattern paper pad Garden Folly, HERE and the other TE cardstocks.  I used the NEW Scribble Rose Trio and Background die also.

 

I’m not sure about these colors at all!  I debated even showing the card! lol  But here it goes.

I used TE Dijon and Peapod cardstocks and ink pads  I know…interesting! lol  Taylored Expressions has been so good to tell us what Copic markers match their ink pads and cardstock too!  So I colored the die cut with matching Copics!

Oh, I used the NEW Gracious Leaves 3D Embossing folder too!  It’s really pretty made up and inked for accent.

This card I cut a circle from the embossed panel and mounted it to the card base with foam mounting tape.  The Rose Trio die is recessed a little then… I really like how it looks. The word ‘wishes’ is from the  Big and Little Words clear stamp set

I’m gonna stop now before your eyes cross from this crazy variety of cards! lol

Thank you so much for stopping by and scrolling forever!  I appreciate it and hope I made you smile!

2 cards for the Simon Says Stamp Blog Party Today…

Welcome to the party! I have two cards to share with you today. I have some new Simon Says Stamp Christmas dies and a few older  that I decided to use for this post. yay!

As I’m typing this, it’s rainy and cold!  Feels a bit like Winter! April Fools! haha

I made this card with the Winter Foliage Frame die cut in green and parts in red and inlaid. The Winter Wishes die cut in red and white. Circle Basics die set for the brown center circle. The May Christmas sentiment is from the Inside Christmas Greetings stamp set.

I cut a green panel ⅛ inch smaller than the A2 white cardbase.  I adhered the frame with glue in the center, then mounting tape to adhere the Winter Wishes circle.  A little white pen for the berries.

I like it!  Festive and bright!

More Christmas cheer on this card! I used the Holly and Berries Tag die, cut in greens and red but I tried to put a big eyelet in the hole and messed it up so now it’s not a tag!  I trimmed that part off.  I didn’t want to start over!  😀

I die cut three RyLynn Snowflakes in my A2 kraft card panel, then die cut three white ones and inlaid them in the kraft panel, taping them ‘in’ on the back.

I stamped the sentiment from the Fa La La stamp set in the bottom corner.

Die cut the Fa La La die in red and white cardstock and adhere together with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue.

That’s it!  It was fun to get back into some Christmas colors and now I have two cards ready to send! Win!

The list of party participants is on the Simon Says Stamp Blog HERE.  So glad you stopped by my blog!

Memory Box Snowflake Card Series Day Six…

Hi cardmakers and friends! Here we are on Day Six of this 2019 Snowflake Card Series!  Typing 2019 and thinking it’s November makes me say to myself, I am not ready for 2020!  I’m not ready for Christmas either! lol

I’m sharing two cards today…both CAS but a little bit technique-y!  ‘Collage’ and Inlaid die cutting anyway!

This first one is with the Starlight Snowflake Collage die… I think I overlooked it when it came out! :O I don’t remember using it but I forgot to search here, to see if it came up.

I saw a card on IG that I loved but I didn’t have a die that would do the cuts so it looked right.  While looking through dies, I found this one and tried it and fell in love with it’s pure CAS-ness.  Once again that pop of white!

Silent Night is from the Typewriter Holiday Sentiments clear stamp set.  I heat embossed it in white on the label that falls out of the new Antique Label die sets.


My next ‘blue’ card, I hope you can see.. the inlaid Bauble Snowflake Corner die and the inlaid Bauble Snowflake down in the right bottom corner. I think it will show for sure in the video tomorrow.

I die cut five of the Bauble Snowflake from the Bauble Snowflake Frame die set, glued them together and stuck a little silver brad in the center.  Oh yay!  One more brad used out of the million or so! haha  Then I glued that in the center of the inlaid Bauble Snowflake Corner die.

Before you think, NO WAY,  I’m here to tell you, inlaying this was very simple!  Just be sure you have a pick up tool!

Maybe you can see better in this close up.

The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Swag clear stamp set.

I did some spattering with white Gouache and a little white ink blended around to give the look of some snow flurries!

All this snowflake posting has made it cold here in Iowa!  I know, I’m rolling my eyes too. 😀

I’ll finish up and take myself off to bed!

Thank you so much for joining me here for Day Six!  I’ll see you again tomorrow…a festive card and the promised video! (nothing fancy)
