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! ❤

poppystamps Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit Card and Leaf and Tentril Hot Foil Card…

Hello! How is your Holiday creating going? I cannot believe it’s November can you! Keep scrolling for card #2.

Now this cutie reindeer is going to make you smile!  Isn’t he adorable in his plaid hat!

I love this new die kit and NEW Wintertime Snowflake Frame from poppystamps!

I used the NEW Memory Box Jolly Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad…Memory Box Lush Green and Earth Neutral 6×6 cardstock pads.

such a cutie!

The sentiment is part of the stamp set included in the kit.  I heat embossed in white and die cut with one of the rectangle dies from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas Greetings die.

I love how it turned out!  I hope you love it too! hehe

On the inside I stamped a greeting from the NEW poppystamps Christmas Sparkle stamp set, ‘You make every day seem like Christmas’.  I love this set!   I used Wendy Vecchi English Ivy Archival ink pad to stamp it.  I just bought her English Ivy and Red Geranium Archival ink pads.  I love them too! lol

TIP: I tell you a lot I love this thin big roll of mounting tape that I link to at the bottom of my posts…I always forget to tell you about cutting it though!  I use the non stick scissors that I finally remembered to link to today!  I’m really glad I went ahead and purchased the scissors from Cindy because it makes a difference with sticky tape.  I love that it’s sticky because I’m assured that my card won’t fall apart after the receiver gets it! I love that it’s easier to mail too!  Win! Win!

Next Card…

NEW poppystamps Leaf and Tendril Hot Foil Plate!  Sooo pretty!  This green cardstock is from my stash but now I’m thinking there’s probably a similar green in the Memory Box Cardstock pad.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Keep Christmas Curled Script die in gold foil/mirror cardstock.

Then I die cut it in a piece of white cardstock and inlaid the gold into the white so I didn’t have to glue all the lines!  Scor-tape on the back, flip it over and put in the insides of the letters… that’s easier imo. I also love how it looks!  So professional!

I’m not a big bow person but I love it on this card!  The NEW Memory Box Dreamy Bow die in TE Cherry Pop cardstock.

A mess of sparkly trim behind it.  Gold pearls added to dot the ‘i’s and in the corners. I love these gold pearls from starlitstudio.net.  The perfect sizes!

Both of my cards in this post are A2 size.

Memory Box Layered Polar Bear Snowglobe Card…

Hi everyone! There’s a chill in the air so time for a polar bear!  This guy is so cute enjoying the polar weather! lol

More NEW dies from Memory Box.  Layered Polar Bear, Alpine Snowflakes, Layered Birds, Nested Globe Bases and the scarf from Tall Bundled Snowman.

So fun.  I love dies that can be mixed and watched for a variety of designs!

I used a scrap from one of last year’s MB paper pads, Woodsy Plaid.

The sentiment is from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas Greetings clear stamp and die set.

I used the thin mounting tape that I like so well.  You get just enough dimension but still easily mailed.

A beautiful sentiment from the NEW Sweet Christmas sentiment clear stamp set.

The check pattern paper is from the same paper pad.

He’s cute! Black Glossy cardstock for his nose and eyes and a little ink on his tummy.

Copic on his paws. The gray background is one of the pieces I did on a Saturday afternoon following Jill Foster’s video. I had so much fun making them!  HERE is the video if you want to make some!

I couldn’t get my camera to focus right on this guy so I ended up with phone pictures. Sorry for my hand being in them. ugh.

thank you for visiting! I appreciate it and I will be back soon!

Sending You Some Vitamin Sea!

Hi everyone! Check out the latest release from Memory Box, ‘June Island Vacation’!  I had fun playing with these products!

I embossed the fish with the NEW Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder, then I used the NEW coordinating Ocean Fish stencil set to color the fish!  It worked great!

I have no idea what colors these fish should be! lol  I used my mug of dye ink blender brushes!  I didn’t add any ink, I just used the ink that was in the brushes and used the green, blue and bluegreen brushes over yellow.  Orange and red together on the other!

The Ocean Fish Folder comes with matching dies, so I die cut the fish after coloring.

For the background piece, I used the Memory Box Underwater 3d embossing folder on white cardstock, then used my Distress Oxide blender brushes to add color.  Again, just the color that was in the brushes.  I guess I was too lazy to get out the ink pads!  Funny girl yesterday! lol

I used mounting tape to mount the fish to the background piece and added some clear Fairy Drops.

The sentiment is heat embossed from the Deep Blue Ocean clear stamp set released last year.  Awesome sentiments and images in this set.  Dies to match too!

I saw Memory Box Dave’s card on the Memory Box website using the Kelp Collage die, also from last year so I used it too!

The last thing I did was add some clear glitter pen to the fish.  I love how it makes it look like shimmery fish!

This will be a fun card to send to someone feeling under the weather.  I love vitamin C anyway… it’s a staple around this house! lol

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!
