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.  ❤

Birch Press Design Viva Layer Die Set Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  It’s a big day… it’s Friday and I’m celebrating that I get to write a blog post, finish a couple birthday cards and go to stamp club this afternoon!  I can’t believe another month has rolled around though!

I had fun making this card a few weeks ago and almost forgot to post it!  Crazy me!

So when you have little die cut dots all over your work surface what do you do?  Paper crafters make a background of course! haha

I love these colors together but I need to tell you, that is dark brown as in chocolate! lol  Not black.  Dark brown always looks black in photos to me.  Naughty child! haha  I used Memory Box Pool, Meadow, Vanilla Bean, white and kraft notecards for this card.

I love working with dies and these layering ones are so fun…kinda like people!  No two alike! Just keep cutting and playing with layering them together.

This Viva Layer Die set is three large intricate dies!  I think this one will be gorgeous made up as ornaments for Christmas!

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!  Hope you get some time to create today!  Be back soon!  I have more to share!

birch press design ADI layer die card…

 


Hi everyone! I’ve been playing with some of the birch press design dies!  I have some fun things to share and I’ll start with this early bird Christmas card!  Whoa! I know… it’s been a long time since I posted Christmas in May!

I grabbed some metallic gold card-stock and started cutting… I didn’t use all the layers…not sure I can even tell you what I did since I moved on to some other designs.  You’ll just want to die cut and see what you come up with by changing out the layers.

I kept it very simple…the background is two pattern papers from a 6×6 pad.  This one is a few years old but I’m sure you have some that will work just as stunningly!  A little gold cord ‘ties’ it all together.

It was a sunny day for taking pictures, so I moved around 3 times and have different looking photos from each spot. I stopped at posting 3 photos at least! lol I wish I could really capture how pretty it is in real life!

 

Hope everything is growing that you’re watering! Our trees are looking good. whew.  Leafing out and soaking up the water and sun.  Kinda scared to get the water bill.  I didn’t Winter over our 3 Endless Summer Hydrangeas that we planted last year right, I guess.  No buds on the old wood.  Fortunately there’s a lot of new coming from the bottom though!  I just hope we get some flowers!  I know….rolling my eyes at myself…Lilly of the Valley pips on the way…hope we can do those right!  We have a lot of shade on the east side of the house. I’d rather make cards but…sometimes you gotta go outside! lol

Thanks for stopping by!

A Memory Box Matchbox Ornament, Santa’s Workshop!

So excited to share this little matchbox ornament with you!  I love this and already have it hanging where I can enjoy it! hehe

I die cut the matchbox with with pretty heavy card-stock. By the time you get it folded into the box, it’s quite sturdy! yay! This one is 2 ½ in x 3 ½ in.

I punched holes in the top and set eyelets with the cropidile.  I strung ribbon through the holes and tied knots on the inside.

I stamped and cut images from two Memory Box stamp and die sets…Christmas Elves and Dashing with Reindeer,  the Christmas tree is from poppystamps Purrfect Holidays stamp and die sets, the banner is from poppystamps Naughty or Nice stamp and die sets and the sentiment on the banner is a partial stamping from a stamp in the Wintertime Fairies stamp set.

I colored everything with Copic Sketch Markers and added glitter from the Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen on the snow, banner and lights.

Here it is hanging…it was hard to get it to quit moving so I could take a picture of it hanging! lol

Hopefully between all these, you can see all the fun details.

I cut part of an 8.5 x 11 piece of white 3 mm thick craft foam in ½ inch strips, covered each side with ½ inch Scor-tape, layered them together, 3 strips thick, 2 strips thick and then I just left one, 3mm thick.  I was able to place the images in the box at different levels then.

The window is the poppystamps Grand Madison Window die that I cut down to fit over the top.

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share this cute box!  It’s going to be a Fall and Winter of snow-globes, fold cards, matchboxes and all things festive!
