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!

ttul!

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 Starlitstudio.net. 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 Starlitstudio.net

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…

ttul!

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!

ttul!

BBQ Platform Pop up Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  We had a fun holiday weekend with a super muggy 4th!  whoa… super nice days and then boom…super high humidity and high temp.  Definitely know it’s Summer!

One of our son-in-law’s is a great cook!  So I made this card just for him.

I have two more pictures and I’ll post them.  If I had this card still I would retake the pictures because the back sign is blurry…f stop too low! lol I was in a hurry to get to the party! Good thing I’d snapped a phone picture!

 

I colored the stamped and die cut images with Copic Sketch Markers.  Then assembled the card just like the Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up video.  The Boss of the BBQ sentiment is from a discontinued Taylored Expressions set.

 

So fun…now it’s time for lunch!  This card makes me hungry!

One more birthday platform pop up to post, then it’s back to Memory Box cards!

Thank you for stopping by!
