poppystamps Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set Card…

Hello everyone! It’s Geranium season for hanging baskets around here!  Ferns on the front porch and Geraniums on the back porch.

They always inspire me to make a Geranium card!

This poppystamps Floral Vase Pop Up Easel is so cute!  It’s not huge, fits in an A2 size envelope but it’s slim and so dainty size wise.  I love it!

There’s not much to tell about it!  You just die cut the pieces, glue them together and onto the card!  I did use my favorite thin mounting tape for the vase and the sentiments.

I wrapped a little twine on it… can I make a card without twine?! lol

So sweet and cute with so many different flower dies in the set you can make any flower you want!

I used poppystamps Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil and Cut die set and Memory Box Cardstock paper pads.

poppystamps easel cards are all so fun and easy and I love that they are easy to display too!  HERE‘s the Geranium I made last year with the basket easel card die set.

Lawn Fawn Snowball Fight Platform Pop-Up Interactive Card…

Hi everyone! I have an end of Winter card to share today!  Maybe an end to Winter… haha!

I made this for our youngest grandson’s 8th birthday…he loves the outdoors!

Linking to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 144 – All Things Birthday

I started by making the platform pop-up. I LOVE Lawn Fawn’s interactive die sets!  They are so meticulously made AND made in the USA!  I have used this set so many times since I purchased it…best purchase ever!  It’s even easy to walk the kids through making it!

It always takes me a little time deciding what to use.  I made a set using Doodlebug Design stickers after seeing one of their design team members cards… So so cute!

Kelly from Lawn Fawn always makes excellent videos for walking you through construction too!  I was totally inspired by the LF team in creating this card.  The how to put the Platform Pop-up together video is HERE.

I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with sketch copic markers.  White gel pen for accenting here and there.

For the snow hills I used the curved borders from the LF Shadow Box Card and Shadow Box Card Theather Add-on.  Trimming them to fit the front and inside.

The sign on the front is from the Berry Special stamp set and die set.

The pattern paper I used is from LF also… I don’t see it in the store anymore though.

I know I’ve shown this before in my other posts but I love how easy it collapses and fits in an A6 or A7 envelope!

You can collapse it either up or down!

The kids love it!  I love it! ❤

I hope you’re inspired to try it!  Thank you so much for stopping by twice this week!  I appreciate it!

Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament Easel Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have four easel cards to share with you today.  As I was making these, thinking about how fun and easy, it hit me how cute they would be for table place cards!  They would be beautiful just using the ornament part and hanging on a tree or used for a gift tag with a beautiful bow!

They’re so easy to make…I started with the black one and just kept going trying to use up the pieces!

The NEW Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament is a Layering Set.  I used all three layers for all but one.

The easel part is the Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel die set. I didn’t use the ornament that comes with the set this time but I did HERE in this post.  I’ll link everything below.

Here’s what I did inside this black glossy one.

I used Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock and the NEW Memory Box 6×6 Vintage Pastel Mirror cardstock pad.

The happy Christmas sentiment is from BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings clear stamp set and die set.  I love this set!

So from the black one I carried on to three other variations!

I just got to playing using the same dies and stamp set.  I know…I brought in pink!  A contrasting color!  Out of the box for me! hehe

I spent the afternoon yesterday trying to take pictures and get them light enough.  It just kept getting darker and darker outside as the temperature kept dropping!  So there’s only one picture of the card with pink pastel metallic that was useable.

Here’s the gold with teal…


and they fit easily into an A2 size envelope

I love this teal one that I used the pieces from the waste of cutting layers A and B from the teal cuts.

for this one I used the poppystamps Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil and cut die set for the Just For You and With  Love sentiments.

Do you have a favorite?  I think I do but then I change my mind! lol

Thank you for visiting today and hope there’s some inspiration here! I have so much I still want to make but I must start shopping and decorating too!  eek!

Pop Up Step Birthday Cottage Cutz Camping Card…

Hi everyone! Do you have memories of camping? Our grandsons keep very busy outdoors!  They love sleeping out and all the things that go along with it!  I have fun making them cards like this.

This is a step card of sorts, not sure what it’s called. It fits in an envelope though! lol

Here’s the back side…

Here’s the inside…

Have you heard of the show Adventure Agents?  Very fun for kids!

Here it is from the side…

Close up of the critters…

All the dies are from Cottage Cutz.

And here’s a video that maybe shows how it works better… be sure to click on one of the frame options to see it large.

Holler if you have any questions!  Confession…I made this in January so I can’t remember everything! ❤

Back To School Box Card…

Hi everyone! I’m going to work on getting some stuff I’ve made for grands posted!  We’ll see how it goes. 

Last week one of my older sisters passed away, funeral was Saturday.  So hard but good to visit with family and friends I haven’t seen for a long time.  So I’m behind posting for Memory Box too but I’ll be making this week!

I made these three box cards for our three grands that attend school.  Our others are home educated. 

It was fun to use the library cards that I bought from I love to read so of course I needed them in my stash!  They worked out perfectly in these box cards!

The box card is a file I cut with my Scan n Cut from Lori Whitlock HERE

My Scan n Cut doesn’t print so if you want to print the numbers you have to get a pdf by emailing for it… or I can send you what they sent me.

The paper bags I put money in are also from

The library card and the bag slide in the box, then it collapses and will fit into an envelope! So cute!

I have some post it notes that are all over sticky on the back so I die cut them and stamped the sentiment for the bag.  The push pin is part of the card file.

It was fun to make something different! 

I can’t remember now if I inked the apples or colored them with Copics! 

I used a Lawn Fawn alphabet set for their names, a date stamp and another sentiment on the library card.  I printed the grandma and grandpa.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a beautiful week…we’re trying not to blow away… so windy this Fall here in Iowa.  Before long the leaves will be dropping and blowing all over the place!

Here’s a pretty picture of the bluffs in the Missouri River area of Iowa…

Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up High Five Birthday Card…

Two more cute pop up cards!  The last two for this round of family birthdays! These critters are having a grand time celebrating!  Today is Corrin’s 13th birthday and the other is for Cedryk who will be 10 later this month.  They grow up so fast!

I die cut Happy Birthday in blue and backed it with a white die cut, then added three clouds to the back.  I love how that turned out with the balloons! (I used clouds from a couple companies)

Close up… I stamped, die cut and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Our oldest daughter has a big, nice tramp and the kids have so much fun on it!  We were over there the other day and after they jumped awhile they moved to the slides!  They greased them with dish soap and soon there was a competition happening! So funny!

close up… I did different balloon colors on this one.

I used Doodlebug pattern paper for the pop up and TE cardstock for the grass.

Here’s my phone picture…shows the detail of the giant Happy Birthday better! I know I already said this but the clouds! ❤

Thank you for clicking over for the backyard playtime…reminds me of a meme I saw on instagram… we had some good times didn’t we! Bug bites and all!
