Memory Box Plaid Winter Scene Birthday Card…

Hello to all, snow or no snow! The birthdays keep coming! 

I started with Memory Box Circle dies, cutting a smaller circle in black cardstock and using the panel, not the cut out circle.  Then I cut out a larger circle in a kraft A2 size panel with an eighth inch larger Memory Box die.  I’ll link the ones I used below.

I die cut the snow puffs with poppystamps Whittle Cloud Border die and white cardstock.

I used a square of Memory Box Woodsy Plaid paper to fit behind the circle panels.  I adhered everything together flat for mailing, except the sled.

Memory Box Little Trees dies cut from black cardstock and glued on flat.

Memory Box Feathery Snowflake Discs from white cardstock and glued on just in the centers.  (I just used the flakes)

For the sled I used Memory Box Vintage Sled #94495 from 2020.  Die cut in kraft and black cardstocks, then glued together and mounted to the card with the very thin mounting tape I’m always raving that I love!

The sentiment on the front is from Your Next Stamp set called Silly Monsters Chill Out.  At first I was going to use the images from the set and color but then I changed my mind and went with the sled.   

On the inside is a happy birthday sentiment.

It turned out CAS but I was happy with it!  I hope it inspires you to create something Winter-ish!

Memory Box Blissful Heart and Cuppa Love Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have two cards to share with you today…Memory Box hearts, hearts and more hearts!

I love hearts and you probably love coffee!  I’m a black tea girl… ugh… so I don’t get those swirly heart things in my cup! lol

The NEW Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate is a stunner!  So gorgeous!

I used silver hot foil with it on the lavender cardstock from the Memory Box Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  6×6 cardstock… wow, it takes the foil so nice! So many beautiful colors of mirror card in this pad!

After foiling, I die cut the heart with the Memory Box Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Fits perfect!

I used the Memory Box 3D embossing folder Heart Bouquet for the card panel layer…another gorgeous design by Dave from 2019 but still available… I’ll link below.

The sentiment is NEW from Birch Press Design…You Are Loved Noted Script hot foil plate and die set.  I used Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock and silver hot foil.  This picture it looks more champagne – ish color but it’s silver!

So pretty!  Clean and Simple but elegant!

Back to the NEW Memory Box Cuppa Love card… this die is so cute!  I love the heart steam, don’t you?!

I used the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die on this card also.  I cut the largest heart in my cardbase, then I had to back the cardbase on the inside but that’s alright… it turned out nice with white on the inside.  I love the double stitch lines.

Another NEW heart die, Pinpoint Burst Heart from Memory Box for the background insert… I love how they all fit with each other! 

Cuppa is cut in white cardstock, the liquid in kraft and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending took and the heart and saucer in red cardstock.  Super simple die inlaying… love simple puzzles! lol

I used this cute sentiment, ‘It’s the little things’,  from the poppystamps Marzipan Greetings stamp set.  On the inside… ‘this is a paper hug’. 

I love that paper hug sentiment!  Stamped with Archival ink pad Potting Soil.

So fun!  I made these on Monday, took pictures yesterday and made two loaves of bread! It turned out so good!  I’m happy! lol  No stamps for happy bread hugs though! ha!  It must be a two thing kind of week! lol

4 Cards with the NEW poppystamps and Memory Box Releases…

Hi everyone!  How are you?  December was a wild month for me, glorious but busy! ❤  Here I am, back on the blog!  lol

Big Hugs to you and I hope you had a Beautiful Christmas and are looking forward to a happy cardmaking New Year!  I am!

I love hearts!  No surprise since my blog name!  This NEW Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame from poppystamps makes me happy!  I cut strips from Memory Box 6×6 cardstock paper pad scraps.  I loved that I was able to use some of the strips that are left after making A2 size cards!  It was really easy to use the different tones to inlay the hearts and I love how it turned out!  YAY!

Two lengths of 2 inch Scor-tape on the back to hold the hearts in place.

I kept it really clean and simple because I didn’t want to cover up the hearts!

For the sentiment I used the poppystamps You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Dies from the Spring release.

I added some brown twine to finish it off and adhered it to a white A2 size cardbase with my favorite thin mounting tape.

This NEW poppystamps release has three coordinating products in it. My first card uses the die, my second the stencil.  There’s also a Hot Foil Plate but I didn’t get that used for this post.

Now I’m thinking I should’ve embossed this next card’s panel with the die after I stenciled!  I liked it so well after I inked it though, I was happy! lol

 

Here I used the NEW poppystamps Criss Cross Heart Stencil that coordinates with the Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame die.

I used the NEW poppystamps Vintage Scalloped Heart dies on top of the NEW Memory Box Pinpoint Burst Heart die.

I used watercolor papers that I’d painted with Fired Brick and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks.

The LOVE sentiment is the NEW Love You Gallery Script die from Memory Box.

Let’s Connect is from poppystamps Contempo Greetings stamp and die set.

From cute to cuter!  The hearts needed some critters!  I love the cute fox and beaver additions!

I couldn’t help but add a little strip of one of the plaids I haven’t used yet from the Memory Box Jolly Christmas 6×6 pad  I love this one for Valentines!

 

I used two whittle stamp sets for the sentiment on this card…Whittle Everyday for the all you need part and Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments for the word fox.

I trimmed the Whittle Tree Border die to get the three trees.

Whittle Happy Fox and Whittle Sleepy Fox are die cut in white, colored with Copics and edges inked with inky ink blending brushes.

Black multiliner in the crease lines.

 

 

Beavers are always popular for Valentines, have you noticed?  I guess they go around stealing heart! hoho

I used the Whittle Beaver for this card…die cut in white and colored and ink the same as the fox.


I had to embellish it with one of the NEW poppystamps Teardrop Butterflies!  What charming images they are!

The NEW poppystamps Vintage Scalloped Heart used again here with Red and White cardstocks.

Sentiment from Contempo Greetings again, white heat embossed on Memory Box Black glossy cardstock.

 

All four cards are A2 size.

I hope I didn’t forget too much!  Email me if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I still have some Christmas to post and some birthdays too!  eek!  And January is a big birthday month for our family.

I hope I’m not the only one shaking my head that 2022 is already moving right a long into 2023!  I have so many things I want to make…is that you too? ❤

And here we are!  Is the song running through your head? It’s….that time of year when the world falls in love…  Yes, we’re falling in love…with DieCember!!! lol

I’m here to show one of the new dies Snowflake Hexagon!  It’s gorgeous!

I let it snow I think with some JOY in there to you and yours!

Ink Drops – Ocean paper pad for the background paper…Hammermill white cardstock for all the white.

It’s time to shop the release…the dies are up in the shop HERE!

I backed the ink drops panel with a piece of silver metallic cardstock and then mounted it to a white A7 size card base.  It’s Hallmark size!

JOY is the poppystamps New Stacked JOY die. I just used the letters and not the stack outline part. I saved that for another day!

The To You and Yours sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider stamp set.

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!

Simon Says Stamp Warm Christmas Card….super fun!

Hi everyone!  If you even have time to read my post on this busy week of being thankful!  I can tell you I’m thankful for a warm Thanksgiving!  I’m gonna head out and wash a few windows as soon as I finish this post! lol

I’m sharing my card for the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle release today!  How cute is this delightful tree and snowman!  I love this set!  I used one more image on the inside…I remembered to take a picture so it’s down below, keep scrolling! hoho  Oh, there’s a relaxing Santa in the set also but I didn’t get him into the composition! lol

Click on the picture ^ to shop the release…beautiful products to create with!

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide ink…tore off the bottom sand part and covered the water and sky with vellum.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Sunbeam Frame die in white and glued it over the top.

Trimmed down the sand and glued it to the bottom of the rays!

I’m tickled with how it turned out but if I was doing it again, I would cut another white die cut and ink blend it and fit the pieces into the top sunbeam frame die cut.   How cute!  ok – I love it!  lol

I colored with Copics…that always makes me happy…just an all around fun stamp set to create with!  There is a coordinating die set also!  yay!

Here’s the surprise on the inside!  You know what?!  This flamingo needs a red gem on the end of it’s beak! lol

Super cute!  A2 size card.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week and preparing for time with family and friends.  We’ll all gather tomorrow at one of our daughter’s.  Can’t wait!

Simon Says Stamp has some specials and a beautiful new card kit and so much more!  Have fun shopping in your spare time!
