Birch Press Design Piped Icing Star Merry Christmas Slimline Card…

Hi everyone! Getting festive here on the blog today!  I love this folky Christmas ‘look’!  I’ve never been a cookie decorator but now I can with paper! lol

Die cut the star in TE Toffee Cardstock and ink with Vintage Photo. Die cut the icing in white and copic color the star center border.

Same idea with the new BPD Handwritten Merry Christmas and Outline.

I added holly leaves and berries from the new BPD Herbarium Plate Layer A.  TE Cherry Pop and Sweet Basil cardstocks inked with Vintage Photo ink also.

hmmm…now I’m looking at it and wondering if it needed some fairy glitter glue highlights?! lol

I used the thin mounting tape that I love so well to mount everything to the Cherry Pop panel.

Stitched Ornament Merry and Bright Slimline Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s been some time since I used wool felt so I found my box and set to work die cutting and stitching up this new die from Spellbinders Stitched Christmas release.

I meant to make it as an ornament to hang on the tree but once again I forgot the plan and glued it to a card! lol

The pretty branches are part of the die set.

I used Knit Crosheen thread to for my stitching.  Taylored Expressions Tiffany and Avocado wool felt.

I used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to adhere the top and bottom avocado felt pieces.

My slimline card size is 3 ⅜ in x 8 ⅜ in.

I used Spellbinders new Mix and Match Holiday Greetings die set for the sentiment. I love this font!  There’s 18 word dies in the set!

Here’s a close up of just the ornament…so pretty!

I wish I could show you this one in person! It’s definitely a card to give to someone that will keep it and get it out for display each Christmas season. 

The tiny pearls are from starlitstudio.

Baseball Birthday Boy Card…

Hi everyone! Always birthdays happening around here! Rogan turned 8 June 1st and I’m just now getting this posted.  I don’t think I’ve gotten all the other birthdays posted either so this is probably good that I’m getting this one done!

I really liked this card!  Usually I like to do something interactive but there’s not enough sports stamps in my stash so the interactive part came on the inside.  I really like the sets I used though and am getting a lot of use out of them!

I had some baseball washi tape that kinda covered up the fact that this die has scallop edges.

I used An Altenew Alphabet set on the front and the stamps and dies from Sunny Studio and Waffleflower.  Here’s another card I used the Batter set for.

Rogan likes to keep busy playing sports or helping his dad.

I loved using the alphabet for his name and embellishing it… now I want to do it everytime but I probably better not. lol

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope your day is a HOME RUN! haha

Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Slimline Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends…I’m so glad I can grow flowers with paper!  I had fun die cutting and layering these together. There are marks on the cuts so you know where to put the layers!  WOW!  That helps so much!  I use Tombow Mono Multi glue.  My tip for using it is to keep the container laying down at all times.  Do you have any tips to share for gluing?  I’d love to hear them!

I cut a cardbase, 7 x 8 ½ inches and scored the 7 in side at 3 ½ inches for this Slimline Card.

I die cut a white cardstock panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim die set.

Hello is diecut in the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy cardstock with the Birch Press Design Hello Topper die.  I didn’t use the backer that comes with it but I need to, it’s cool!

The NEW Birch Press Design Dainty Rose and Leaves Contour Layers I die cut with four of the Memory Box cardstock 6×6 pads.  I was brave with color today! lol

I also used the NEW Birch Press Design Tiny Tuft Flowers and Leaves Contour Layers die set.  Die cut in the same cardstock colors.

I used mounting tape behind the roses and everything else is glued directly to the panel.

My pictures feel huge but I sized them 200 pix smaller than I usually do. eek! lol  I hope they show up on your screen ok! The first four are the same size as the card when I hold the card up to my computer screen. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this touch of Spring!  It’s supposed to get up to 70˚ here today!  YAY!  ttul!

Memory Box Bennet Alphabet Merry Christmas Card…


Hi everyone! I challenged myself to use the new Memory Box Bennet Alphabet for a Christmas card this week…then I thought, I’m going to use unusual colors!  I always say I’m not a ‘pink’ person but we had three daughters and I dressed them in pink frequently! So…here’s some pink for you!

A Slimline card I wish I could show you in real life!  It’s a softer pink, I used Taylored Expressions Pink Champagne cardstock for the pinks and Mint Julep!  There are Copic markers to match these cardstocks also.  I colored the alphabet layer, die cut from Pink Champagne, with RV32.  


I used the Pine Needle Trio dies again.  They seem to be making an appearance on my cards a lot these days! lol  I die cut them in Mint Julep cardstock then colored them with a Copic G21 to match.  The Holly Bundle dies were cut from Mint Julep also, I ran around the outside edge of each holly leaf with the same marker. I die cut the berries from Pink Champagne and colored them with the RV32 and a little dot with a white gel pen.

I die cut a panel from Pink Champagne with one of the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Slim die set.  Then I die cut a panel from Mint Julep with one of the Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set. I went around the edge of this panel with the chisel tip of the G21 marker to make the panel show up a little more. 

I layered the panels on a white slimline size cardbase.  Several Memory Box Fairy Drop clear domes and it was done. 

Have you tried the Slimline and Mini Slimline card sizes yet?  It’s fun!  Now to make something with kraft, turquoise and red! lol

Have a beautiful weekend! I need to get some shopping done!

Memory Box Layered Poinsettia, Slim Confetti Plate, Holly Bundle, Pine Needle Trio and Joy Posh Script Card…

Hello!  Hope you are having a beautiful Saturday! Here’s a little festive holiday in paper finally!  Where did this week go?! 

I used some of the Memory Box 6×6 cardstock pads for the poinsettias, pines and holly… I love having the different tones of reds to combine!  I didn’t add any inking to the petals but I think that would really take these petals up a notch!

Isn’t this NEW Joy Posh Script die beautiful!  I love it in the foil gold cardstock!

I die cut the NEW Slim Confetti Plate in heavyweight white cardstock and left some of the circles in place for fun!

I die cut a piece of gold cardstock with a Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die and layered it behind the Confetti panel.

I adhered both panels to a slim line cardbase.

I used pieces of foam mounting tape to adhere the poinsettias on first, making sure there was room to stick the holly and pine under the petals.  The Holly leaves are adhered with foam mounting tape also.  The Pine Needle Trio dies, I glued directly to the cardbase.

Here’s a couple more process photos…

I used the die package for constructing the poinsettias. In the pictures you see the two main pieces, then you glue the three separate leaves on matching them up too… anyway, that’s what I did! lol

Then I played with placement a little and took a picture with my phone so I would know where to put them when I transferred to the cardbase! 

My pictures are all on different days!  Different weather conditions every day… so much for natural light! lol 

You know the dies are beautiful though because Memory Box dies make the prettiest Christmas cards!  You will have fun with these festive dies and they all cut beautifully!

I’m going to go out and enjoy some sunshine for a little while!  yay!  Take care and I’ll be back here soon!
